#200: 4th Daily DeviationHello guys! I hope to find you well. I'm here to share my joy with you guys.
Today this piece:
got a Daily Deviation. When I checked the DD page with my phone (I check it everyday, I'm happier if there are Fractals DDs too in there ) and got the surprise, my hands were trembling. You have no clue how much Glimmer on a Sunday Afternoon means to me. I finally got a DD for one of my blooms. It's something I've wished since I've started creating them...who follows me knows how I feel about my flowers and all the overthinkings I make on them. So you will understand me being overjoyed, exspecially because this is the bloom (if not THE piece among my gallery) in which I have put my efforts and feelings the most. I still can't believe it.
Before I end this boring whatever you want to call it (), I'd like to thank some people:
tatasz, who decided to take the suggestion and feature it.
#199: Fractals and FashionYeah, lame title.
But anyway!!! Some time ago I allowed AlchemyRose08 to use two of my fractals (Winter Madness and Hide and Seek) to build up a...dress!
So, after some time, these two pieces of mine:
turned to be this utterly amazing and wonderful dress!!!
I MEAN!!! I DEMAND YOU GO AND FAVE AND LEAVE SWEET COMMENTS TO AlchemyRose08 LIKE IMMEDIATELY!!!
On another note...everything seems to be fine now (if not fine, at least way way better than before).
#198: Thank you for the fav.Let's talk about this.
I'm one of those people who checks deviation stacks like once a week and do a mass fave action in one time only. Really, there's no need to thank me for a single fav, let alone writing me like three/four times "Thank you for the fav" under the profile!
Please, don't do that. Gather all of those 5 seconds you spend to thank me for everything I fave from your gallery and use them to do something else, whatever it could be.
(I'm not that against politeness and such, this is bare common sense. )
I'll take your gratitude for implied.
P.S: I will reply to personal messages and to thanks.
#197: Prints.Today I logged in and found that I've sold three prints (Away She'd Fly, In The Right and Parade).
So, mysterious dude or dudette, THANK YOU! I don't know who you are, but I'll find you and hug you tight.
But really, who's you? I'm curious.
I'll seize the day and thank everybody who thought spending some money on my art was worth it.
Speaking of other things...My social life is a bit hard lately, but I have some awesome friends who are helping me getting over it.
#196: Did you know that......today is BoxTail's birthday?
Be sure to check his whole gallery! http://boxtail.deviantart.com/gallery
#195: UpdateYeah, update...actually, there's no interesting thing to say lately.
I'm here waiting for inspiration, signs from above and most of all my daily meal.
And I'm on a diet too. Not exactly diet, I just cut down sweets and extra snacks during the day, and have carrots and apples instead (more carrots). I'll become sort of a bunny one day.
How about you?
#194: Sta.sh-y thingsFractals I don't want to publish...not now.
The last one is very swiiiiiiish.
What you think?
#193: Brace yourselves......FUCKING SPRING IS COMING.
What I ask you now is to make a list of some reasons why I should like spring.
I have only two reasons, and they are:
1) My birthday;
2) Nice weather (and not even always).
(I'm having my two minutes of nerves before going to bed, sorry to bug you. )
NEW CONTEST: Draw Izka or Amelia!!So I decided to open a new contest, draw either one or both of my original characters: Izka & Amelia!

Especially animals or creatures, since both girls love animals/ creatures a lot!
-Please draw Amelia with her bunny ears & tail
And then I returned...It's been a while since I've been actively online.
But even though temporary, it did changed my perspective on some matters.
It's weird how much the internet can become an influence, and how this process goes so unnoticed. At a certain point the countless voices of people around you blend into a continuous buzz. A buzz that you soon get so familiar with that you forget there was a life before it. I guess that's what social media does in general; creating a buzz. An artificial need for you to continuously be online and check your messages, because you might just miss something otherwise. Life, in general, has become so infused with the internet that it sometimes scares me. I'm part of the internet industry. Hell, I even made it my job! But even I sometimes find myself wondering where the time has gone that I could work on an artwork for hours straight, without feeling that creeping itch to check my messages.
The last few weeks before the break, I've repeatedly felt bad about

PE: How to Make Pixel CloudsHow to Make Pixel Clouds
In this tutorial, I will be showing you how to make pixel clouds. I have two different types of clouds I use depending on the piece; semi-realistic, and cartoon style. I will be showing you both today!
Let us start!
The semi realistic style can be done two ways, depending on if you are limiting colors or not.
First, I'm going to show you the way for if you do not care how many colors you use.
First you will pull out your pencil brush, as you would normally do when making pixel art, and set the color to white. After that, set the opacity to around 10%-20%.
Randomly brush side to side with the pencil, and then overlap some lines randomly as well.
Keep doing that until the cloud if about as big as you need it; it should look something like this.c:

We Are Resurrecting!:iconwriters-workshop:
Following our previous journal on our zombifiction revival, I am pleased to say it is crazy enough to have a go! I don’t expect every one of our 1500 members to get involved, but even if there is a handful each time getting some good out of this, then that’s one handful getting a better attack on their writing and understanding their niches. These groups hold a great opportunity to explore and stretch even the more experienced writers, and I believe that’s what made this group so good to begin with.
The Plan Batman
So here is my plan.
In May, we will hold a new workshop. The entire workshop will be encapsulated in one month: 2 weeks to write, 2 weeks to workshop.
Week 1, Day 1: Workshop brief is launched and you have 2 weeks to submit. The standard to what you submit can be anything from a rough draft to something you have worked on, it doesn't even have to be complete yet. (Please ensure you pu

CONTEST!!!!!!!Ok I'm going to make this pretty easy.
What it's about: All you have to do is draw my OC for Hetalia based on the description below. Here's what she looks like
Backstory: Meet Death. Her boss is the Grimm Reaper. however, because death happens every day and she can't be everywhere at once, there are different "workers" who are assigned different tasks. for her, she only appears for major events/wars which is why she knows who the personifications of the countries are. She has the ability to wield purple flames which she uses to kill people. However, she can choose to spare a life if she wants to. During the Revolutionary War, she stumbled across an injured America. She chose to spare his life, thinking she would never see him again. of course, many years later, she met him, and everyone else, gradually becoming good friends with them, but never telling them she was a personification of death. she grad
#133: Help the 100 Premium Memberships Project!Please, it will take only few minutes!
Maybe many of you don't know, but winehaus is gathering 63,600 points to donate 100 Premium Memberships on Christmas (like a dA Santa or something).
He needs almost 4000 points to reach his goal. You can make a donation, but if you have no points, he had another idea.
I can't tell you what is all about, but if you want to get involved, you should send him a note.
A "How can I help you with your project?" should be fine! He'll explain everything!
Really, if you regularly join dA, you can help him doing very few things. Please, help winehaus to reach his goal and make someone's Christmas day!
Thank you for your attention and have a nice day!
EasterRemember what you love,
you with sand in your teeth
and the feral burn of hunger
in your eyes.
God sends his regrets.
He made you grasping and slow,
in a late hour
when the wine washed low.
Remember what you love.
Fall to your knees in the toss
and the swell, quell
the appetite of the cold black sea.
Beg blessings for your home
and the salt-sick trees.
Reach what lies near:
the fat-faced child, the sweet-soft lamb;
tether the tantrum, trickle the blood.
Offer psalms to what is holy,
whisper the name of what you love
as it bobs in the bleak mad sea.
Keep in Touch!
