Lately Well, I have a lot to say. I'm usually.. not gonna share things like this. But this is the kicker, and I owe you guys some explanation. Especially after I was just starting posting again.
Long story short, I'm in a terrible part of my life right now. For starters, I'm adopted. This just needs to be said to set up the mood for what follows.
Starting in August 2014, (but with a lot of strife even preceding then), every single member of my immediate family has passed away one by one. I have lost my home. I have been alone. Only my dad continued living but on the 17th of this month, he too passed away - suddenly and unexpectedly. the circumstances make me nauseous. I am devastated. He was very, very important to me. In addition, various other problems and pain has been coming my way and barraging me.
I am in a place of loss. It's hard to express anything. But As this is the absolute kicker to my situation, I wanted to tell you all. I was just finding some
YESS!!!I'm opening a new site!!!! I will still be here!! but my main site is moving over to a tumblr!! Please Click:!! (and follow~!)
I will upload all new art and updates there from now on~ I will still post on DA but my main site is there now~~
please enjoy if you can!! I have some updates there you may be interested in, too!!
Yo~ Long time no see.So. maybe you noticed? Ive been gone for a long time. Survivability became a center stage.
I've been losing it for a while now and staying grounded is difficult. if you know the pyramid of fulfillment, you know creativity comes last.... things like nourishment and shelter, by necessity, come first.
Lately, I canceled all my cons. Also, did i mention i've been to tokyo? it was really great.
But in the process Of the past few months I think my heart was broken at least 6 times (not in the romantic sense).
basically, ive been pretty shattered. And in being shattered, im the type to hide.
Honestly... It's tough to say whats going on or how long anything would take.
becoming an artist whose fending for himself is a lot different then one whose under a safe house with others who are loving.
Basically, it's been proven a couple times now that im very alone. which is okay, but it's make the current very difficult. Because I can't bare the thought of giving up on anything. so ive been tyring to
.hello.Hei everyone!! long time no see.
I figured.. i should do an update at this point. I'm not ready, because my anxiety is crazy... but.. if i don't do it now i don't know if i will!
for me, lately, I think i'm going through a really big artistic shift. And.. my focus is totally shredded.
Right now.. I'm in this weird revival.
I think I've mentioned it before but..
for me, i would choose music over visual art.
and.. i think for a really long time i didn't think i had a choice. Which is a nother complicated story.
But.. i think, my ties to you guys with my art, and also my dreams of creating my art this way has made it a bit awkward. I dont want to lose any of you!! or any of the people i've met...
But now it becomes...
Will you hate me if i -kind of- pause my visual arts for now? better to phrase: will you support me otherwise too? I know ive hinted at this before... but.. i think its a critical point and my guilt is out of hand. plus.. i want to feel safe to share my updates with you
Hey guys!! So it turns out a couple of things are going on!
1) ALL OF THESE FUN CONVENTIONS I STILL DONT UPDATE ABOUT ;u;
2) I AM GOING TO BE UPPING MY PRICES FOR EVERYTHING!! it's because currently, i'm really desperate for some money! work is tough, huh? ;u; i would be audacious enough to say i would add a donate button. but i cant do it! x'D
((if you want to know the sap story, please message or something haha. i am trying to not eat only cheap ramen while still getting everything to work okay..... i am desperate orz))
That being said, i am deciding to open up 15 commission slots at current pricing for digital commissions, and after that, all of the prices will increase. :'3 possibly by a decent amount, but i havent decided yet. probably ~after~ these are filled as well is when i will be upping the prices for my prints as well. to around ~10$ for big prints, and ~7-8$ for small ones~ ((my books will stay the same~)
these are the current commission pr

PLEASE READ - The Ransomware EpidemicPlease share, fave and spread this journal. You could help many people on DeviantArt protect their computers from this horrific cyberattack and raise awareness about the issue to those who haven't yet heard of it.
Funny how all these years of me picking and choosing updates to keep my computer functioning how I want it (you know... to have what you paid for and keep my product without others stealing it and modifying it *cough*badupdates*cough* ... basic consumer rights... but anyway) came to haunt me.
So I finally decided that I'd bite the bullet and update my updates... only to find out Windows Update was refusing to update and would forever stay stuck "searching for updates". Just my luck. When I really don't want updates they try to install, and when I really need them they don't.
Anyhow, why am I so desper

Find Your Homestuck Troll Blood Color!Yeah so here is how it works! You need to figure out your sun sign, and your moon sign. There is a calculator similar to this one out there, but it doesn't take in account jade bloods or mutants. This also doesn't require rounding. Hussie has already stated that the only troll blood colors that exist are the ones we have seen in the comic + lime. I also had to take in account that the jade blood color is rare, but the odds of getting jade with the distribution unadjusted are extremely high, so I figured out a way to make it work so it makes sense. I also took in account that fuchsia blood is extremely rare, and so is being mutant. The distribution that I am working with is a pyramid. I'll explain the breakdown at the end.

The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.
Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:
1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.
2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
