One of my friends sent me a copy of Pokemon Y about a week ago. It's taken me a while to get into it, but now I'm hooked!
Let me know if any of you guys want to play! My Friend Code is 4527 9216 3883.
i'm in a comic anthology thing!!!!A few months ago, a cool dude on Tumblr asked me to be a part of a really sweet-looking anthology he was putting together, called Sad and on the Internet. Now it's finally available for pre-order!
From the description on the announcement post:
"Devised as a series of meditations on the relationships between human emotion, electronic communication, and entertainment consumption, the artistically and thematically diverse 5.5" x 8.5" grayscale volume is being professionally printed and perfect bound (so, a legit softcover art book) on high quality paper with a full color cardstock cover. It will be offered for a limited $15 pre-order from now through Sunday, May 26th. Very few - if any - additional copies will be printed. Shipping is priced at $1.50 US domestic mail, $2 Mexico and Canada, and $2.50 flat international shipping elsewhere. All orders to ship by the start of June."

hey hiWell, my output wasn't very high in 2012, and no wonder because I was probably in the worst funk I've even been through in my life.
But I think towards the end of it I started pulling myself together and got myself able to draw again. I've got a new laptop that'll actually run CS3 and a new scanner on the way, and I've got a ton of projects going on that I'm really excited about. So yeah!
Also, I have a betta fish now. His name is Nobunaga, and he's PRETTY GREAT.
i'm sorry ursula k. leguinHaha, just now under the "reading" box I typo'd The Farthest Shore as The Farthest Shota, and now I'm picturing The Farthest Shore manga-fied as the kawaii yaoi adventures of Ged-sensei and Arran-kun. UGUUUUUU
I watched Children Who Chase Lost Voices a few days ago; it was really great! There was about a ton of influence from Miyazaki's Castle in the Sky and also Spirited Away but I think enough things were different that it stood apart on its own. Anyway, I'd recommend it! Here's the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tmHo_0mgos0
(...I started this journal because I was going to try out the "Draw Yourself Series" meme but then I realized I'm too lazy to actually do that, and also I don't have any interest in drawing myself. Pfffffff.)
hey y'allI graduated! From college! omg guys I'm a real adult now.
Oh and hey, I'm on Tumblr! Same username as here. http://outoftheorange.tumblr.com . Let's be Tumblr bros.
I hope everyone's lives have been treating them well!
meanwhile, in other placesI'm really not around here very much nowadays, am I? Or at least I don't interact nearly as much as I used to. Still around, though!
I'm actually more on my other account now, at Iyasasa. I made that a while ago to separate my original stuff and fanart. (I just don't have time to do as much fanart these days, as much as I'd like to! School is eating up my liiiiiiiife.) At the time I was pretty squeamish about having most people from this account find my original stuff (because I kind of get the impression that most people watching me on this account are more ARGH FIRE EMBLEM AGHHHHHHH), but now I guess I...don't care?
Anyway, a while ago I found a webcomic called "Mokepon". It is absolutely freakin' hysterical, even if you're not big into the whole Pokemon thing. I haven't picked one up since Silver, but I love it! (Having played the first two that came out, I can appreciate most of the jokes.) http://mokepon.smackjeeves.com
That aside, hope everyone's doing well! Stay out of trou
need advice from fellow artists!Okay, so in one day I got two references for possible illustration gigs: one for the cover of a musician's EP and another for a guy needing a storybook illustrator. Both of these sound right up my alley and frankly it would be amazing if I could get these gigs. Which begs the question, however:
How much is a fair price for an amateur, so-so-at-best artist to charge for things like that? (Note that these are both self-publishing clients we're talking about)
If you know anything about things like this or know somebody who might, and would be willing to maybe throw me a bone of advice, that would be incredibly awesome.
HI GUYSWow, so it's, uh. Been a while? I guess? I haven't been around too much; that whole "irl" thing keeps me hopping even during summer break. Or, correction: even more during summer break, when I have no homework to be attempting to avoid. OH WAIT JUST KIDDING, I do, no wonder I'm here typing this right now.
Anyway, on a more serious note, I just want to thank those of you who were so kind with your time and money and helped get some manga off my hands - you have no idea how much that helped me out. Thanks to the combined help of you guys and some people on Facebook (i.e. IRL friends and relatives), I got rid of...pretty much most of my manga! I was left with less than ten books, and man, when you live in a space as tiny as the one my family and I are in now, that's a very good thing. My brother of course wasn't able to get rid of most of his...but obviously that's his fault for having terrible taste in books that nobody else want. I know I was pretty slow in getting some of the books out
GARAGE SALE PART 2Okay so, long story short, I need to get rid of all my stuff (excepting of course clothes and school supplies). Sooo, I'm trying to sell off as much of my manga as possible. The listing is below - it'll be updated once I sort through my brother's stuff, since we need to get rid of all of his things, too - so please look through it and, if you see something you think you might want to buy, send me a note. Or if you see something you know someone else might be into, let them know about this too, if you don't mind.
I'm selling these off for as low as I can; the books in good condition are going for less than half of what I paid for them. Some of them are marked up in places - when I was in middle/high school I liked coloring in my manga sometimes - and those'll probably go for just the price of shipping or so.
Edit: All of my brother's manga needs to go as well - we don't have room for any of it at the place where we're moving to - so I've updated the listing to include his stuff a
I AM GOING TO TAKE YOU ON A JOURNEYI feel like lately all my journal entries have been mostly about me, and that's not cool! SO THIS ONE IS GOING TO BE ALL ABOUT YOU.
I've been seeing all these really retarded surveys around lately, like on friends' journals and such. "What color are your socks?" "Do you like Abercrombie?" "Do you have an i-Pod?" AGHHHHHH
As those of you so unfortunate as to have known me for a long time well know, I used to really love taking those crazy survey things. But after a while they got so repetitive that even my self-obsessive adoration for babbling retardedly about myself couldn't take it any longer and I mostly gave them up.
No, I'm not going to fill out another survey right now. CHILLAX. What I am going to do, though, is make A REALLY SUPER
retardedAWESOME survey that you guys can fill out! It is called...
THE EPIC ADVENTURE SURVEY!
Okay. Are you ready for this. ARE YOU READY FOR THIS. HERE WE GO.
1. Only you can save the world! Why the hell is that; what
SAVE THE LOUD HOUSE!!!IF YOU LIKE TLH, THEN SPREAD THIS IMMEDIATELY!!!!!
If you didn't know, I like this recent show on Nick called The Loud House, and you should go check it out too!
But that's not the thing.... The thing is that One Million Moms is trying to cancel this show for a REALLY stupid reason. Here's why:
In the episode "Overnight Success.", It appears that the Louds are having a slumber party. In one scene, Lincon's friend Clyde gets dropped off by his parents for the slumber party. Seems ok, right? But NOOO, the Moms are angry because Clyde has TWO Dads IN A TINY LITTLE CAMEO. AND THAT'S THE ONLY THING THEY KNOW ABOUT THE EPISODE!!!
Unfortunately, children are now being exposed to same-sex marriage on a network that is designed for kids.
And that's a bad thing HOW???? That's like saying "Unfortunately, children are now being exposed to b

What's with 'Studying from Life'!?This is the revisiting of a news article I wrote a few years back.
Allow me to begin this article by mentioning that this was written with aspiring professionals in mind. For those of you who wish to pursue art as a hobby with no intention to make it a career choice, I have no doubts in your abilities as an artist, but art for you is a pleasure seeking thing. I would never wish to turn it into something even remotely reminiscent of 'stressful work'--as a hobby should never come to that. So for you hobbyists, feel free to take this article in, but by no means feel obliged to apply the information if you do not find enjoyment in doing so.
As for you aspiring pros, this is an inevitable and unavoidable step you must take in pursuit of your career. This is your job--and if you don't like it, you're probably pursuing the wrong career!
But I digress.
I, like many of you--strive to be a professional in the field of art. In particular, I am an illustrator. I've been fortunate enough to

The Real MeI put on a show when it comes to my online persona. Across YouTube, Twitter, and Twitch I'm always putting on an act, and I'm open to criticism about how I act.
My only point in writing this is to say that this DeviantArt page is the closest to the real me you will find anywhere. I've posted about my ideas, my girlfriend and even my depression. I will not change what I post about here. I'm not on DeviantArt to entertain like I am on YouTube, Twitter, and Twitch. I'm here to be me. So there can be one place on the internet where I can just let loose and be myself.
And being myself involves lots of ponies right now, apparently. I've been getting people telling me to draw other stuff. But nah. The point of this account is to just be me. And most of you support that, and I thank you.
Yep, I have no clue if this post will accomplish anything. Just thought I'd clarify on that. Lol what am I doing
