I put my stuff away. I did this before & almost lost it all. I think I have enough back-ups to be fine this time round. Time to look for new ground. I been here a long time & I have seen this place change. I don't like where it has now changed into. I see enough people not very happy with the changes as I read more & more about it. It's not the same & it makes me sad, so I'm going away...... for a while.
I will still look at the art, fav & even read/comment on posts. I'll be shocked if anyone notices I'm gone, but I'm not out. I'll just get back to painting.

See you around the internet.

Till then ;)

So I need to revamp my art list of this year & add some from last year so it can get done. Right now I don't have a list yet but I have a goal. My goal is to sell at the Long beach Comic Con this year. Still seeing about tickets so can't say it's set in stone. I no longer have a fan base so selling anything is not something I see happening but would be a welcomed surprise.

Still dealing with issues from 2009, which hasn't changed since. Kinda crappy but not much I can do about it.

Changed some interests in art subject ( well not really, just exploring them more ) to include space related images. May even try my hand at robots, not sure. Still working on how to do a 3-D project, on & off the computer but will not be a goal this year. Cosplay is going to be in a odd spot as I am thinking of selling my costumes, or at least pieces of them. Still figuring that out.

If you have questions, as I'm sure no one has, feel free to ask.

May have an artist party at some point, DA members & new friends mainly. Still trying to figure out space. Yey.... right?

Till when ever.

Not with anything good.

I haven't had time to do any art, not even to get to my How-To s on Dragons ( Drakes & what not ) that I so need to get to. I can't even find my water color paper that I had on Saturday O.o. My room looks like a Horder is living in it, no lie & it SO needs a clean.

I have a project for me for later once my have to get dones are done. Which are :

1.) Finish my Deco Bear! (8/2/12)
2.) Work on Skyrim drawing for friend's b-day gift
3.) Paint Bowser on a Surfboard, Ect. for my man's brother's birthday gift ( over due now )
4.) Finish my Templar Tiger that's been sitting undone since 2006?
5.) Ink ANYTHING (Changed because I really just need to ink something) . ( Working on it )
6.) Work on my John Snow & Ghost Munnys
7.) Finish my Space Munny  ( Done! as of 1/19/12 )
8.) Finish my " New Style " Munny ( Done! as of 1/4/12 )
9.) Meet new artists!!!!!!!!!! ( Done 8/5/12 )
10.) Finish my Zelda Boxes! ( Done! 7/12 )

I haven't even gotten to any of these.  I feel like I'm slacking yet I been working so much & have to go to a funeral on Saturday, blah.

Off topic I now have Fresh water Blue Lobsters.... Cute but I need to move them around to make sure they all have room. Mama is going to have like 200 babies so..... Going to be a party in that tank real soon.

I'm still alive, just working a lot. I haven't forgotten I need to do a new How-To. If any one knows how to use Live Streaming, hit me up.

For now have to get ready for work... fun.

After working 2 weeks with no rest I am now on my second day of it. Feels nice knowing what day of the week it is rather then thinking every day is Saturday.
It was pointed out how I want to do art when I'm busy yet not so much when I have all the time in the world. I want to guess it's because I think more when I'm busy & when I'm not I'm just a bean bag of sleepiness. But I havent forgotten I need to do a new How-To. Will be on Dragons this time. Yey.

Need to get my re-sale items set for Etsy ( which are 20+ years old if not my work ) and get some other things squared away. I was asked today by my new ( yet I worked with them before ) PT lead to stay rather then find a new job. We'll see how that works out. I need a better paying job & so far I have no commissions coming in ( which are still open ) to offset all this.

Other then personal stuff I got nothing. I may have a new painting of a bear & a new water color posted in a while other then the How-To later. We'll see.

How's every one else?

I am noticing a huge change in names here. Some VERY different then before. The only way I know who it is is by the icon. Change that & I really won't know who they are till I see the art work & even that I may not >.>

If I had the money, would you know what I'd change my name to? .... go a head & guess.

I hit a re-vamp stage with my Generals again so I may just do that. I'm setting up the idea in my head first. I have a book set aside for the drawing as I want to keep all my ideas together. The over all head shots will be the same just the body shots will change. May even do full shots & post but still in the IDK phase. Really wish I still had room for a drawing table.
Going to be breaking down & getting a new desk so I can have a bit more room but the fact I have more stuff then room as of current kinda holds me back. I still have my list below & some drawing tips for dragons to do still once I get my medical re-signed. Been thinking of teaching art at a after school thing but not sure if I'd be any good at it or if it would be welcomed. Have to see. It's that or painting which again I fall into the same unsure feeling. Hand is still shaking when I do inks & that's not any good. Work has also been in a odd limbo that I wish I had other ideas on what to do. Getting into a gallery would be nice but I have no clue how to do that & since I have no local art friends I'm at a loss to get back into the art world. I feel very alone in that aspect. I use to have a base of people where now I have none. I dug my self into a deep whole & I had help. Now I have no help getting out & I'm not sure what to do.


I still miss my friend who was my muse & I been having a hard time ( after 2 years ) dealing with that. Just because they don't talk to you doesn't mean it all goes away. I'm told I need to be the better person which I don't see is fair. Most of all I need to get out more. That & work on my web page design as well as a double logo. One thing at a time I guess.


1.) Finish my Deco Bear!
2.) Work on Skyrim drawing for friend's b-day gift
3.) Paint Bowser on a Surfboard, Ect. for my man's brother's birthday gift ( over due now )
4.) Finish my Templar Tiger thats been sitting undone since 2006?
5.) Ink my Alice in Wonderland Drawing, so not Tim Burton yet so me.
6.) Work on my John Snow & Ghost Munnys
7.) Finish my Space Munny  ( Done! as of 1/19/12 )
8.) Finish my " New Style " Munny ( Done! as of 1/4/12 )

10.) Finish my Zelda Boxes! ( 70% done )

Hope every one who does Easter had a good one & Happy Pass Over for the ones who do that. I don't know any other holidays other then Mother's day coming up so.... yeah.

I got nothing btw but I got my mom Game of Thrones S:1 which she was happy about. She has yet to see it. I how ever have to look forward to taxes.... yey me. Most if not will go to new tires if I get enough back from said taxes. Here's to hope'n to some money.



Other wise I am lacking in fun, getting out of the house & I been over all depressed. Yey me! So with that note I am going to try & find stuff to sell on Etsy.... which btw I am open to commissions if you want one.

So I got the lines down for my other 2 Zelda boxes. WOOT! That means I can start coloring them tomorrow, as long as it's still raining when I get back from work. I still need to work on box 1 but once the other two get more work, I can lay them all out & see what little things need to be changed.

Working on my inking before I try my hand at my Alice. I have a image I had pencialed already the same size but I am still adding to it so I have enough lines to work from. I also was sent a Flat Stanley ( if you know who he is ) so I am working on that for a 1st grade class. He will be on day 3 tomorrow & going to work with me. I am still planning out his week & so far he had a busy 1st day & a raining day for his 2nd.

I feel bad I only have 2 things done on my to-do list as of now. It's almost April & feel I am slacking. Since I got the other two boxes lined how ever I feel I am back on track. The Skyrim drawing will have to be placed between them however as it's super past due just like the other Bowser image. The rest should fall into place.

I almost have my gift Munny done & ready to go, I have 2 more space themed items to start & over all I think I'm doing rather good at turning art out, just not my list. Minecraft has been sucking a lot of time out of me too. For now that's my update. Any questions, do ask.

I don't see how dogs work... when have a seen one on the job other then in a movie? Police dogs or Fire dogs maybe? I should be saying working like a horse, they do more work that & an Ox. Anyway I been working, a lot.

So other then drama from the family lama I have been super stressed. Holidays in the U.S. tend to be so which I don't understand. It's the time for food. Food shouldnt be stressful. It should be eat'n with light naps in between.

I been trying to track down a Krampus cookie mold. I was looking into cutters but now I want a mold. I been asking around too but nothing has come up. So if you know of any place that sells them, do let me know. I even asked Miss Monster but she said she didn't know how to go about doing that. So... yeah.

My Etsy has gotten few sales but I been selling books more then any thing. I sold one peice of art ( some items here are in there btw ) & will have to finish some other things up for it later. I need ot get around to making prints, which I know is a hassle for me as I don't own a scanner any more nor have a place for one. So we will see what I can get to doing on prints.

As of later been reading when not playing Minecraft. I still play WoW but it's kinda rare when I do. Anyway.. if you have any questions, as & I will answer them, other wise..... later.

I know this is a topic that has been on DA for some time & even one I have brought up from time to time. I read $techgnotic's Blog thingy & noticed the art he shows in it. Thats what I see as art. Not once did he show case bad nudes, only good. Why do I say this? Well because each piece was artistic in some way where what I have a issue is the images I see of "nudes" are not. A snap shot of random guys junk with no artistic reason or value other then to do it & get page views is what bothers me. He talks about Judy Chicago's "The Dinner Party"
or Georgia O'Keeffe's flower paintings as maybe being a base to change a view if they were part of "bad" nudes... really? You say they should be your changing point to think "Hey, I guess I can be ok with the main page swimming in random pe'ni as if it was run by hustler because I like flower paintings." As if that was reality.

So what about the other questions?

1.Do you think there is too much nude subject matter on deviantART or is it a non-issue for you? How much do you think your gender or sexual preferences might influence your answer?

Well lets see, yes there is too much nude subject matter "THAT" is pointless OMG I HAVE BOOBS! or what ever that mean little to nothing as art or lacks even trying. There are many nudes out there & some even racey that I love but some girl who wants to post a boob shot can go to MySpace, not DA thank you very much. Gender & sexual preference have nothing to do with it nor should it. What next, you going to ask if religion is part of it too? Oh Please.

2.When is censorship of art permissible? Where would you draw the line? What rational rule could you offer as a practical guideline?

Censorship should be a law thing & yes I uderstand that I can just change the page or not even go to DA. I draw the line of pointless pictures on DA that you'd see on "Rate Me". Thinking that I'm not being rational is just silly but a rule could be that the nude has to be in a artistic element. Meaning that they have to atleast try to be artsy. Posting a shot you'd see on a tabloid outting a congressmen because they sent their "body" shot to a 18 year old isn't art... it's just a cry for help.

3.Have you ever had a work of art you created censored or banned in any way?

The only time I had a art banned was when some one on DA thought my own work wasn't my own. I got that cleared up so that doesn't apply here.

4.If an artist really believes in what he or she has created, how should the artist respond to censorship of that art? Have you been made aware of an instance of "art suppression" via the Internet?

Are we still talking about nudes? Art suppression is a large subject that is linked to many forms & styles of art for many reasons. Normally goverment & religion play a big part in it. If some one said Child Porn was art whould you suppress it? I know I would because thats sick man... real sick.

5.Would you ever suggest to another artist that he or she should tone a work of art down or agree to the censorship of an art object in a specific situation?


Yes & I have. Hell even DA started with it & now has gotten so laxed about it, anything goes. Again... Child Porn.... are we going to wait till that happens? Maybe it already has & your ok with it...



Anyway, this is pointless. I haven't seen a good nude on the main page for a long time. I may find a jem but it's always overwhelmed by shit. Even some of the old stuff I had in my fav.s are gone... I wonder why... maybe they don't want to be tossed in the gutter like the rest of the trash that valued now a days.
