Status reportFirst of all I am glad to be back!The outpouring of support, well-wishes and kind words made my time away a lot more tolerable. This is a personal "personal thank you" for everyone who pitched in to spread the word I had been suspended and where else (outside of DA) they could contact me. In fact the overt show of support seemed to be the pivotal factor in changing my permanent ban to a 2-week suspension.Would have been nice for the suspension to be "2-weeks minus 6 days for time already served as a ban", but I was not going to be picky because I seemed to be treading on pretty shaky grounds with regards to their reasoning to why I was being immediately banned and not just suspended.I am referring to the revelation that they turned down my ban appeal because of "my previous multiple suspensions" - suspensions that never occurred! (WTF!) Once I brought this to their attention, things happened behind the scenes pretty quickly and within an hour some button was pushed and my
LOCK PICK'S RANT SESSION:icontso1:I hardly ever bitch about anything, but today my mood is dialed down enough to do so. Earlier today I was browsing the Internet- typical of the today's routine- and had come across some phenomenal masterpieces as well as some potentially filled candidates- that always have at least one retarded remark, simply to either dig skin or because they have some stupid personal vendetta. 'Your work sucks lolol..' Or 'your anatomy is horribly off, it looks like a backwards cow...' Etc. the latter is hardly a critique and the former is clearly an insult, and by far the humorous part of the whole ordeal is nearly everyone who posts such a comment has a blank page, or is narrowly skilled in comparison.There are plenty of people I may not care for, but it's not worth my effort to go out of my way to argue a point, but even so, I can still respect them as a skilled or aspiring artist.Art is creative, inspiring and supposed to be fun. Within an art community you would feel you'd be right a
Appreciate Voice Overs and AnimatorsMarcia Wallace (Voice of The Simpsons Mrs. Krabappel) passed away and it's been a stark reminder to appreciate those who bring your favorite cartoons to life.When we watch a cartoon, you don't really think about the people who voice them. They're just there. They don't seem to have age or a mortality to them. In our minds we tend to think of cartoons as immortal. You can drop an anvil on them and they just keep going. Unfortunately, those who give them life, through voice acting and animation, do not. Something to consider when watching any cartoon. Enjoy them, appreciate them. More importantly appreciate the talents behind them. They wont be around forever. (Myself included unfortunately) Stupid mortality.
TO THE ASPIRING ARTISTS OUT THERE...." I haven't reached the point where I think I'm good at this. that's the drive. i know that its in me to be really good at it. and i think i've come close a few times, but i don't usually look at things i've completed and feel content. Which that means the next thing you start, you go in with that attitude that 'this time, I'm gonna get it right.' it doesnt mean you hate everything you do, but i'm never content. And maybe i never will be but i secretly know that that's what makes you grow." - Jamie Hewlett

2013 coming to an endEDIT: Annnnd... I'm experiencing login issues again. Looks like it isn't so easy to solve this time. I guess you have to do it without me for now T__TAnother year that went by so terribly fast. And as much as I am against posting journals that are too personal (especially on the internet, since you never know who is gonna read them), these end-of-year overviews kinda became a tradition. The 2011 and 2012 versions were great to look back at. Even now. So I can see what kind of shit occupied my mind back then. And even now some events of the past still manage to inspire me to a certain level. So here we go! 2013 overview Job changing, again. Not that I
Just sayin' I love you guysBecause I do. Things have been really crazy these past two months, and I would not have survived them without all of you. Thanks.I know it's been kinda slow lately, but I promise way cool things are on their way!
Watcher's Feature #12It's been a while since I did this @__@;;~ Sorry for the delay ~It takes me a while to put these together, so if you commented on my other journal to be featured, please take a look at everyone else's work too. After all, it's only fair that way and if you don't, it's just a little selfish and your conscience will bug you . So yah, share the love, guys! Faving this journal might helpThese are ordered first come first serve style; I will be showing around 50 pieces at one time (I still have a lot to go through and it adds up every time i put up a feature journal), and be featuring once a week as to not clog up your message boxes. It'll probably take ....a few months, so please be patient!++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ :thumb295836123: :thumb307309834: The red dragon by SunsetTheDragon Daughter Oceana by Maripon Daenerys Targaryen by symphonikas :thumb30974
Masters of Anatomy KICKSTARTER FINAL HOURSUPDATE 2: We're reaching the final hours for this fantastic book!!!Now with even MORE artists like Adam Hughes, J. Scott Campbell, Artgerm, Joe Mad, Dean Yeagle, and so many others, it's hard to keep count! It makes me feel like I don't belong with such a mega-collection of awesome artists.

You can go and pledge here!Hey all, just taking a bit of time to tell you about a huge project for aspiring artists that I think it's such a great privilege to be a part of.

12 Years of Foamy?! GAH!12 Years of FOAMY!!September 10th marked the 12th anniversary of Foamy! That's right, Foamy has been ranting for a full 12 years! How is that possible? Fan support yo! Frankly, I wouldn't be around all this time if it wasn't for the fans. So props to everyone for keeping things going. WE RULE! Ok, enough ego-boosting, gotta get back to work on new episodes. MORE FOAMY FOR ALL!
Bad TimesWow. Tumblr/Yahoo was pretty quiet about this, but as part of the new "community guidelines," posts from adult flagged blogs will begin to not show up in search engines, on mobile, or even in a damn tag search, unless you are following them beforehand.http://www.tumblr.com/docs/en/nsfwThat would certainly explain why I have been missing a lot of fanart on the site.Isolate the blogs, then get rid of them in a year or two? Sounds like it makes sense. Moving away from the perfectly acceptable and no-fuss DON'T USE THE SITE IF YOU AREN'T 18 YOU LITTLE SHITS to LET'S PROTECT AND ADVERTISE TO THE CHILDREN HEY KIDS!Confirmed that neither of my blogs will ever show up in a tumblr tag search again. Can't search myself. Can't find slugbox or slugboxcreatureart via any tag. You can find slugbox related things from people who are not flagged... but seeing as how tumblr is handing out the flags on their own, wiht
COMMISSION INFORMATION UPDATE!This is in addition to about 50 emails! Okay… I was really trying to keep on top of commissions in the sense that I could at least answer all of them! But it's quickly like… yeah… BUT I'M EXCITED. I DON'T WANT TO SOUND UNAPPRECIATIVE IN ANY WAY BECAUSE OH MY GOD…You guys, seriously, I could cry. I shed a (very manly) tear or two last night with all the kinds words and support. And I'm just beyond moved. I have been feeling this nauseating mix of fear and hope in the past few days. It's been crazy and weird and very wonderful and scary.But I really want to address some bleh stuff… mostly that wow I don't think i can take 303 commissions! I mean, if I could that'd be awesome for everyone! I didn't expect this at all, and I wasn't prepared for it. Today I managed to take and finish TWO commissions. I just want to be really honest with everyone, because you've all been so amazingly generous and helpful!FIRST: I WILL DEFINITELY READ EVERY SINGLE NOTE AND EMAIL.SECOND: I DON'T THINK I CA
Tumblr and facebook and me. Oh my!Yeah, I did it! I joined the ranks XDFacebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/DestinyBlue/140111612704354Tumblr: http://destinyblue.tumblr.com/ deviantART is an amazing site, but it is it's own little bubble, many of my friends and family have never even heard of it! It's for artists so mostly artists join and look around. Thought I'd branch out a little and now I can share my artwork with non-artisans, and so can you!Please feel free to share my art, re-blogs make me feel warm inside (both facebook and tumblr) as they show all of the people you know my art. There isn't a much higher accolade that that dA is still going to be my 'home' as I love this place. But having more leaves me free to upload WIPs and sketches and more things like that I haven't quite figured out tumblr yet, like how people find my page other than through dA... I'll get the hang soon! XDIf you want to re-blog a specific piece of art from me, if you do to the piece on deviantART, t
