I am doing everything I can to procrastinate on cleaning my room, and that even includes updating this journal!

But as to the subject of this post, I am now at 187 deviations and 9623 page views. At the rate I do not update, I am curious to see which I will hit first: 200 deviations or 10k page views.

Any bets on which one happens first? My guess is likely the page views, and if anyone hits the view #10k, feel free to request something from me. If I do manage to hit 200 deviations in the near future, expect something fun and awesome for that deviation. I've been around for nearly 7 years. Might as well make something out of it, right?

So as you might have noticed, I started uploading those cards that I made for the Fantasy Big Bang on LJ. I made 20 of them, so I'm going to just upload four a day and then I will go to all the stock artists that I used and spam them with notes and links. It's easier to wait until I've finished uploading so that I won't send some of them five notes. I can just send them one with five links!

I might also, one day, update with actual art. Though that will involve me finishing a picture.

So like everyone else is making one of these so I might as well as well, right?

Off to Anime Expo this weekend~ Are you going? If you are, stop by one of the information booths (in South or West hall) and I'll be there! I'll be doing  "16-Bit Wars"!Gumi and "Musunde Hiraite"!Miku on Friday and Saturday respectively. Won't be around on Monday because I have to be back at work, and on Sunday I'll be wearing our swanky staff shirt :D (if you happen to be there for Day 0, I'll be wearing a Harry Potter shirt ;D)

I'm really super excited for the Kalafina concert on Saturday, and I finally get to go to the Labyrinth of Jareth masquerade on Friday (what and awesome birthday present to myself! *A*).

Speaking of Friday/July 1st, not only is it my ~23rd birthday~, but it's also my Deviant Art's birthday! Maybe, one day soon, I'll actually update again with art... hmm....

Well, so, if you'll be at Anime Expo, see you then!

Gods I haven't updated this thing in over a year. And I'm not doing that project any more so I might as well get that out of my journal, right?

Anyways, everyone is talking about ALA so I might as well too! Because it's coming up in like... 3 weeks! Ohgoodness. It's my first time going, so I'm kind of excited. I'm making two new cosplays, plus busting out Austrian Succession Hungary to play with :iconphantasiagirl:'s Maria Theresa. We'll be the HBIC pair. Though my jacket is probably wrinkled and I do have a makeup stain on the sleeve I'll need to get rid of.

As for the new outfits: Kat and I are doing Matryoshka and Mosaic Roll. For Matryoshka, I'll be doing Miku, and for Mosaic Roll, I'm the full-colored Gumi :) Super excited about both. This is also the first time I've bought wigs /o and I'm making the whole thing myself! 8DDD Everything is slowly coming in through the mail over the next few days. Just waiting on the gloves for Matryoshka and the Miku wig! Then I need to buy orange socks and brown loafers and then I'll have everything! Just need to finish sewing everything o/ super excited.

If you'll be at ALA, maybe we'll hang out! Or at least say 'hi' to each other.

I'm also hoping that I'll have my car back by then! I don't want to drive a rental car around if I can help it.

And, eventually, I will have new art up! I have one picture that is almost finished, and a few more WIPs that I should just power out on and do. But at the moment I'm quite distracted with making Tangled icons, and later How to Train Your Dragon and Princess and the Frog icons ;D ;D ;D

I think I will try to start drawing more D: because I haven't uploaded anything new in awhile, save Jun and that random comic. I'm working on a... comic/story thing, but I have to try to decide how it will be uploaded haha but it will be amusing, even if you don't know the characters.

How are you guys doing? I should go eat :/ I'm hungry.

I saw some artists on Deviant Art that really inspired me, and so I want to try and do something similar. I need to go shopping first, but the only problem is I don't know where to start! Ahhh but it will be exciting~
  • Listening to: Jinn - Fugue
DeviantArt just came and announced that they were hungry and proceeded to eat seven of my deviations ;;; lolol

Anyways, the following are gone:
+ Kyon cursor
+ Haru-chan in Wonderland
+ Angel Sanctuary Signature
+ Disgraced Rose: Original Sin
+ Caged, Volume 01 (which I don't remember what it was...)
+ Happy Holidays
+ Bi - it's raining

xDDD alas.

Ummm it's about time to update this journal. I just wanted to say sorry for not being active on the art front =_= I have a few rough sketches that need to be turned into line art and one that needs to be colored, so maybe when I have the time/patience, I'll get to that!

At the moment, I've been working a lot of my NaNo story (though it's not coming really far =_=;; ) I don't think I'll be posting it here (it'll be all on my writing journal on LJ), but if I have time there are some fanfics that I do want to write (more Ouran, maybe some Baccano and Good Omens ;;; ) whee~~~!

Well, sorry I haven't been updating much. I have a few quick picture that I can upload later. I also have two WIPs that I want to finish the line arts for before i post them. I also have a lot of pictures in mind that I hope I can draw (or at least a few of them).

:iconseraphellic: and I are going to become trend whores and do a pixel ID thing rofl

there are a few art things that I would like to get a firmer grasp of (kind of ambiguous, but it makes sense to me). I only hope that they go well.

I started saying that a lot more. Or at least typing it.

I'm at 2003 page views :'D I feel special. Though... still really small xD;;; alas. I'm also at 99 deviations. The next thing I submit will prolly be Xeda's picture... making it at 100 in a few weeks (he's not going to be easy =_=; )

so almost done with schoooool

I still have that song stuck in my head~~

I'm terrible at keeping promises. I say I'll do something but I won't. But it's nothing important for what I'm referring to. I'm actually procrastinating now over making icons to post over at Kingdom_chorus on LJ. lol.

School's almost over. I should be doing more arts stuff over the summer. I also have makeup photoshoot pictures that I'll be uploading. I'm thinking I might make another account to upload photoshoot pictures too. I'll ask Soup and Amy and Kristen about it, methinks. (I don't know how well they could be used for stock photos tho... at least not yet anyways)

I've been writing a bit. Maybe I'll start uploading it on here. And I'll prolly set up batches of icons to show off. Ahaha...

Until next time I decide to make a random post, salainte.

SO D: :iconcaliborn: and I got into our heads that we wanted to try one of those awesome group project things where we go and pester I mean ask artists (or hopefully get requests from artists) to join in on our little fiasco. And so, to present to you our fiasco.

We want... the major arcana. We figured we might not be getting very many people, so asking for Major AND Minor might be a bit of a stretch xDD but there is always next time... But at the moment, we don't have a theme. We threw out a few, but couldn't think of one. So, we are open for suggestions. A few we threw out were.. "Pirates", "Forest Spirits", "Machina", "modern fashion", and "Renassaince"....

The Cards
[ Fool ]
[ Magician ]
[ High Priestess ]
[ Empress ]
[ Emperor ]
[ Hierophant ]
[ Lovers ]
[ Chariot ]
[ Strength ]
[ Hermit ]
[ Wheel of Fortune ]
[ Justice ]
[ Hanged Man ]
[ Death ]
[ Temperance ]
[ Devil ]
[ Tower ]
[ Star ]
[ Moon ]
[ Sun ]
[ Judgement ]
[ World ]

here is a link that explains the cards. Please feel free to pester me with notes or comments here if you have themes, or would like to sign up for a card :O We'll post more details later, so keep checking back for more (like card size, due date, possible theme, etc) xD

I'm beginning to think  I should start making more cursors. A lot of people seemed to like the moogle one. then again I would have to go and redownload that program. I wonder where I got it from... that aside

any suggestions for cursors? It would help if you could provide me with like... a link or a pic or something (like if you can find a sprite sheet that I could use... tho I can pretty much get sprites of all the characters from Chain of Memories, but you can also request if you want a certain character/pose (IE Riku Replica jumping/attacking or something))

Yar a new year is here. And it is time for me to feature the first two artists that signed up here (if you want me to feature you, go pester that journal entry D: teehee)

1st: :iconkhover:

I really like his photography. Good angles and ideas. I also like just the random pics he's taken aslo. I must say D: I started doing more photgraphy stuff recently because of him xD I also really like his flash animation--the one featured above. I think those things are so cool and I want to make one but I can't xDD

2nd: :iconseraphellic:

HNNNNNG WHERE TO BEGIN D: I LOVE HER ART SO. Too bad she never updates. She does a lot of drawing tho :D But I love it soooooo. Her details and coloring for starts. Lookit that second one. I LOVE THE COLORING. Makes me wish I can color better D: and I love her Oekaki art :D TU MENS.


yesssss that's all for now. You want to be featured, you go reply to the previous journal entry. In other news, I got the CDs from :iconsouppita: from our last photoshoot. Be prepared to be spammed with photomanips :D

The whoever comments on this journal will be PLUGGED and ADVERTISED in it. I'll provide your avatar/name, three links to my personal favourites of your artwork, and a small description of what makes your artwork so grand.

However, as in all of these journal thingies, there is a catch - are supposed to do it as well. But, I can't make you. So whatever. (Technically, it's supposed to be the first 'x' or so... but I doubt many will comments xDD)
  • Listening to: Olivia - Starless Night (Nana)
This is my request post part two xDD or the fact that I have less than 50 left until I reach 1000 (awww I'm almost in the 4 digits~ yey)

Alright, so... I'm opening up to commissions and requests. Make your request here in a post. This is what I can do for you:

+ Color a line-art (include list of desired colors unless you want free reign)
+ Brush set for Photoshop, your choice in size and design
+ A set of textures, your choice in size and color and design
+ Icon set (100x100), your choice in subject and number
+ Wallpaper, your choice in size and subject
+ Write a short story (I gernally don't do fanfiction, but I can if I know the series. You must supply something for me to draw from: character pair, a picture, etc)
+ Pixel Doll (I'm not too good at these yet, but if you want one... all the same I can... just give a description of the character you want)
+ Photo manip (picture of you like the ones I have in my gallery *as in more of a glamor/modeled shot*, or a picture that you have drawn)

I generally work for free, but if you feel like a rather kind person while making the request, I won't mind a trade xDD if you tell me what you make~~:heart:

just because I'm back in a creative mood xDD

ALSO: if you're person 1000 and you want something on here... I'll do something extra special for you or w/e ionno xDDD hehehehe okay have fun

EDIT: THE HELL?! CAN I NOT COUNT! OMG. So I have 40 left. Not 10. ARG. Stupid...
I stole this from :iconkhover: because it looked entertaining xDDD it's pretty entertaining only if you know characters... But I'm sure Soup will get a kick out of it. She knows most of them. And I'm sure she'll agree that Sera has commitment issues D:

List 12 original characters:
1) Arika O'Connor (Mwyr)
2) Sera (Mwyr)
3) Maesina (Pirates are Overrated)
4) Raif (Still Waiting)
5) Killick (Pirates are Overrated)
6) Tezcatlipoca (Deus ex Machina)
7) Kaanan Covert (Solitaire)
8) Nemesis (Code Name: Angel -- First Shot: Wrath)
9) Maurus (no title, my king arthur story)
10) Ryny (Gates of the Prophet)
11) Ravi (Gates of the Prophet)
12) Misery (Only on Tuesday)

01)Who would make a better college professor, 6 or 11? What would they teach?
Oh, by far it would have to be Ravi. He would most likely teach o_o.... hmmm.... Probably english or history....

02) Do you think 2 is hot? How hot?
Eh, cute, not hot.

03) 12 sends 8 on a mission. What is it, and does it succeed?
o_o Misery wouldn't be sending Nemesis on any missions, unless Misery was actually 'Father'. But the only missions that Nemesis partakes would be to exorcise those demons. And she always succeeds. Even when it involved (spoilers for end of WRATH insert here)

04) What is or would be 9's favorite book?
well.... In his time, it would technically be the bible o_o nowadays.... he would like... probably Tad Williams' 'Otherland'

05) Would it make more sense for 2 to swear fealty to 6, or the other way around?
oh, definately the other way around. Tezcatlipoca is a god, for starters. But Sera... has commitment problems oO;;

06) For some reason, 5 is looking for a roommate. Should he share a studio apartment with 9 or with 10?
Well.... Killick and Ryny kind of have the same personality. Maurus is a little too moody.

07) 2, 7 and 12 have dinner together. Where do they go, and what do they discuss?
oo; Hair and nails? Ionno if Sera would partake in a conversation with Misery and Kaanan (who actually, would probably make really good friends)

08) 3 challenges 10 to a duel. What happens?
Hmmm... Ryny might win in the long run because she has magic. But if there was no magic, probably Maesina because she's a close-range fighter and Ryny uses pole weapons.

09) If 1 stole 8's most precious possession, how would he get it back?
well, Arika isn't much of a thief... (that's sera's job), but she would steal... wait... I was looking at the wrong character. Nemesis would kill Arika before she had a chance to steal anything.

10) Suggest a title for a story in which 7 and 12 both attain what they most desire.
I hate titles.... um.... lesse... ionno for a title, but I can tell you that they would both want freedom and just to be with the guy they love (who both are, by the way, unatainable... As Enigma is 8 years older and Misery's teacher, and Paris Dymond is pretty much Romeo to Kaanan's Juliet)

11) What kind of plot device would you use if you wanted 4 and 1 to work together?
o_o; plot.... device? ..... Sexual Tension (wikipedia says its a plot device D: D: ) the are both... Fickle and flirty Dx

12) If 7 visited you for the weekend, how would you get along?
um... probably pretty well. She's pretty laid back.

13) If you could command 3 to perform any one task or service for you, what would it be?
Teach me to be a pirate D: D:

14) Does anyone on your friends list write or draw 11?
:D Yes! :iconffanichik: haha

15) If 2 had to choose sides between 4 and 5, which would it be?
D: he might have a problem choosing sides in the first place. Poor Sera. But really... Prolly Killick's :D Who wouldn't want to be a pirate?!

16) What might 10 shout while charging into battle?

17) If you chose a song to represent 8, which song would you choose?
lesse... Neme is a tricky one... Prolly 'O Fortuna' from Carl Orff's Carmina Burana

18) 1, 6, and 12 are having dim sum at a Chinese restaurant. There is only one scallion pancake left, and they all reach for it at the same time. Who gets to eat it?
HAH! Tez for sure.

19) What might be a good pick-up line for 2 to use on 10?
xD;; he prolly wouldn't have to use a pick up line. Ryny will think he's pretty cute (tho nothing compared to Ravi. But let's presume Ravi is out of the question)

20) What would 5 most likely be arrested for?
...Pirating. O-o

21) What is 6's secret?
Well... it's technically not a secret... but he keeps it a secret from Mitchle. And it would be that he's in love with Xoch.

22) If 11 and 9 were racing to a destination, who would get there first?
Most likely Maurus. He's a knight and used to running hard and fast D: and winning.

23) If you had to walk home through a bad neighbourhood late at night, would you feel safer in the company of 7 or 8?
Nemesis all the way. She's an Agent, after all. Almost always has her gun on her.

24) 1 and 9 reluctantly team up to save the world from the threat posed by 4's sinister secret organization. 11 volunteers to help them, but it is later discovered that he/she is actually a spy for 4. Meanwhile, 4 has kidnapped 12 in an attempt to force their surrender. Following the wise advice of 5, they seek out 3, who gives them what they need to complete their quest.
omg... (figures out al the numbers) That would be... Arika and Maurus against Raif's sinister Organization. Ravi would voulenteer, but it a spy... Raif kidnapped Misery. Following Killick's advice (WTF are you insane?) and go to look for Maesina o_o

-What title would you give this fic?
crossover liek woah? I really hate titles xD;

-Name three people on your friends list who might read it.
ionno... Soup might, Yunji, and prolly Khover xD; (I don't have a lot of friends D: )

-Name one person who should write it.
I don't think anyone should xD;;;;
^-- kinda funny for a default title... Oh well...

I just though I'd make a new entry D: because I can, simply. Almost at 700 page views :D which is cool for having not much in my gallery xDD; I suppose o-O

Uh... nothing special here then =_= sorry if you guys get spammed with an extra journal entry or two D:

[edit] why is it so hard just to submit a single wallpaper? D: I can't figure out where to stick it anymore because of all these new sections...

[edit 2] how come my new deviation won't show up on my main page D: but people have been faving it....
Okay, so that journal entry is a bit old... People keep asking me if it's still available xD I got one girl who was nice enough to try her hand at Deus ex Machina, so a big thank you to :iconakuma-hime: for at least considering it ^__^

uh... I will be uploading with something soon... but i haven't done much recently... nothimg much left to do... hurhur... so to tell y'all... I'm alive...
