Scheduled Live StreamsSo when i streamed this weekend I wasn't expecting anyone because I usually only get 0-3 people watching, but i did get a good amount this time and people were complaining because i didn't schedule them before hand. But my schedule is kind of weird so I never tried to.
So now i'm gonna try, but I'm not gonna bother if people don't actually want to watch lol
If I were to do a schedule live stream, what day would you prefer? Tuesday night, Thursday night or a Friday/Saturday night? What time would you prefer (in EST)?
I wouldn't mind doing something like 7 or 8 till 10 or 11pm on tu/th or even later in fri/sat or afternoon on saturday, but i don't want to schedule things that no one goes to.
Onto the next thing
Help!! any advice would be appreciated I'M OLD AND JUST LIKE TUMBLR I DON'T UNDERSTAND LOL</b>

It is quite outdated now, i regret not updating it like i kept saying i would but now it's too late, everyone will have to marvel at it's 1.. 2.. 3.. year old glory!!
I cringe at the bad jokes and stuff now but at the time it seemed like a good idea LOL. See you guys at otakon in about a month <3 (Table g-07!)

Animu BostonGuess what chicken butts? I'm gonna be at Anime Boston this weekend! I'll be like two hours late on friday but i'll be there so if you're coming COME SAY HIIIII I love meeting people : )))
I AM GOING TO EAT SO MUCH FOOD cause i'm bringing my boyfriend with me (it's his old college town) and i'm gonna make him deliver food to me >:3
Status UpdateI hope people have been enjoying the art cons have made me do recently LOL, i have already started another picture that is a parody of The Kiss by Klimt except with link and zelda, it's on my tumblr but i expect i'll be here in a week or two mwaaha.
Hope everyone continues to do well, i miss being more active here but the less art i have time to post the less journals i want to post because i'm pretty sure it's annoying to see more journals from an artist than art LOL. it's my fault, i should be doing more art really. thank you for sticking with me and supporting me for those who've stayed!

Operation RequiemIf you didn't know already Operation-Requiem has finally opened pre-orders for their art book, Click here to pre-order a book for yourself! I heard they are running very low on the higher tiers of preorders already haha.

The full artist list can be found here
There are a good number of ~popular~ and ~skilled~ artists on that list and this is a good chance to get a compilation of their un released SNK art work !

SteambanditsSo I already mentioned i've been kinda butt busy because of my job and conventions, well the game my work has been making is finally out on Steam Early Access, you can check it out there!
Early Access means the game is still in an pre-alpha/alpha stage, meaning the game isn't finished and there are defintely some bugs. The UI is kinda poopy for example, but the heart of the game is still there. And yet there's still so much more to add @_@, like better combat and berry breeding!
Still, I really hope people will check it out and see what's been sucking up all my time XD. I think it's a really cutie/addictive game @_@, I hope we'll be able to add all the content we want soon! The next big update is in february ahhhh.
Here's some joke "fanart" i made for it too (ON MY OWN TIME, not affiliated with my company), just making fun of other game ads. ads that we would never ever use seriously.
I'm so glad that's not the direction we are taking LOL! Those captains are in the game though, with more clothing and obviously non ridiculous poses XD.
If you had any questions about the game totally ask too
THANKS for all the Birthday Wishes!I feel bad because I'm just not around that much, I apologize if you feel like I suck for not replying to your comments but I am about to go do that right now TuTTTT Thank you to everyone who posted a birthday greeting!
Etc.I forgot what else I was going to write ahh crud, I guess that um, i dO post more sketches and stuff on my tumblr so if you had a tumblr and wanted to keep up with my shenanigans more frequently do be sure to follow that. Otherwise I have like 2 posters i'm finishing up hopefully before the end of the month that I need to upload
Catch you guys later, if i remember what the heck i was supposed to post in the first place... @_@

30 Characters in 30 DaysAhh I totally forgot I usually run a november 30 characters in 30 days challenge D: But if you couldn't tell from my inactivity i've been kind of busy and totally forgot to plan it this year!
This weekend we flew to LA for a wedding, but it turned into cray cray if you didn't see about the shooter on friday, the same day we were flying in. We just got our plans all jumbled up but still went to the wedding, came back in time last night to try and sign up for sakuracon, and then this thursday we're moving to a new apartment so there's a lot of packing and then unpacking to be done basically D: I would have done a really bad job of running the even if i tried to again this year.
I still want to remind people though that November is both Nanowrimo and the 30 character challenge for us visual artists! I highly encourage you guys to draw 30 new characters this month to stretch your artistic and creative musles! Try NEW things, experiment and take it has a great chance to explore diversity and variety!
The hallmark of a successful artist is discipline, if you've been slacking of your daily practice this is your chance to get back on the horse so to say, okay? We'll all try together!
I'm posting mine on my tumblr and if i succeed i'll do a compilation at the end of the month!
If you are participating as well, let me know ! If you succeed, let me know too! I want to reward people but it might just be a feature at the end of november, but I can't feature people i don't know they're participating

New IconsWoah weird, I'm not a = anymore but a star? Haha.. this is going to take some getting used to o_O
Back from AWAI'm back from AWA! I had a great time there with some usual pals and met some new friends as well DDDD. I also met some DA users that i've been waiting to meet for over a year now cause I never got to go to AWA before, and i just had some great ass AWA feels with some really sweet people, really glad I went! Well there was that terrifying cab ride that me and finni though we were gonna die on but it was fixed with gratuitous amounts of delicious food thankfully TnT (seriously holy shit that was scary wow wowow)
And now that my last con of the year is over..
The Store is open again!If you saw things at a con this summer that you couldn't get, now's your chance!
And lots more in the store too, so like.. there it is LOL.
Hope to see more art soon since there's no more cons but more work work and some commissions i hope to wrap up soon D:!
OH forgot, the kiriban was also caught! Congrats to @Runawynd! Next Kiriban will be hmm.. mm.. 166,666? Good luck!
Tue Sep 24, 2013, 1:39 PM
AWAI'm going to be at AWA for the first time , atlanta for the first time actually. I'm actually pretty excited since I wrote a long paper about atlanta many years ago and being there will be cool, even if only on the outskirts LOL
Anywah some people have asked me for my location in the alley so here it is, C-03!
And i'll be selling these cuties in addition to my prints and buttons
Because AWA has a 50/50 rule, i will not be able to bring all my buttons and prints to the convention. If you wanted something specific from me of my existing art/prints please leave me a message so i'll bring it or bring a copy for you, otherwise i might just not have it, i'm not sure at this moment~
KiribanLastly the next kiriban is soon, i believe. I haven't drawn the last one yet but i will gah, once cons are over @_@
Wed Sep 11, 2013, 6:37 PM
Ack I almost forgot to post this here, but i'll be at AnimeUSA in washington DC this weekend! TABLE #35! Come say hi
In addition to the prints i normally bring I'll also have ACNL buttons:
And lastly, i will be at Anime Weekend Atlanta two weeks from now. I know some people have asked me in the past if i would ever go to AWA and i said i didn't know... well now i am LOL

WorkingI feel like I've been avoiding devianart because I have no new art to post and I hate seeing all those comments I haven't replied to yet. Just sat down and replied to them all LOL, or most of them anyway. Sorry if I missed you.
It's not that I've not been drawing, it's just mostly drawing for the game, which idk if people want to see? They get posted on facebook every week though, it's not my usual style so i don't post them here.
Basically when I'm done drawing for the day for work, I want to relax with my boyfriend whom i don't see all day, and eat and play games or watch anime with him, which puts less time for commissions that i have to get done, and then even less time to get art for myself done XD. Still i know i could if i wanted to.. cause if you WANT to do something you'll MAKE TIME for it. But there's just not much WANT to do it when i have all these other art things i have to do, right? Make sense?
I just hope i don't stagnate.
There's been other real world stressors too, we might be moving in a few months (due to some issues that .. ugh i don't even want to go into again) and I still have two cons in September. Always chewing at the back of my mind. I'm the type of person that can't fully relax unless there's nothing to do in the back of my mind, but now there always is something to worry and fret over. It makes doing things like art for myself hard, because I know I can use that time on something else, idk idk. It's just.. yea. Sorry for not posting art lately.
/o\ idkkkkkkkkk I just hope people support the game when it comes out so I can justify everything i've given up.

THIS DUMMY!I'm pretty sure i packed it, and into a pocket of my luggage i didn't touch at all the whole weekend at AX! BUT when i got my bag at SFO the pocket was slightly open for some reason (fault zipper? tsa? just caught on something?) and this morning when I was going to get some work done I could not find the pen, i turned my luggage inside out and my bags etc. No dice.
The real kicker is my tablet is SO OLD they do not make compatible pens anymore LOL. I have an extra at home in maryland but there's no way to mail it to me in a reasonable period of time so instead i decided to... buy an intuos 5! LOL
It was actually not as expensive as i thought it would be? And I've yet to try a cintiq so i'm not really craving for one. That and like, my tablet was REALLY old, the reason they don't make pens compatible with the graphire 4 anymore is because they only have 512 levels of pressure sensitivity. The LOWEST END bamboo tablet now has 1024 levels.
TuT thats what made me think it's about time.. I'll still use the graphire as a travel table though because it still works! I just needed something to work on NOW while i'm away or i'll be wasting time >_<.
AX Over!Welp other than that I just got to SF from AX, the con itself was mostly uneventful (and wow the worst con of 2013 easily lmao), the best parts were the art trades that i will pimp in the future (WOW AMAZING ART THAT I HAVE NOW AND PEOPLE LIKED MY ART ENOUGH TO TRADE WHAT?) , and meeting boat loads of people I knew for years over the internet IN REAL LIFE! WOOH! ALSO FOOD
Okay I'm done, no cons till september, wooh wooh~ i loved reading your comments on my ipod in bed during the con and i will have to reply to them soon
