Anyone here? *crickets chirp* +Nanowrimo 2016EDIT: I am NOT leaving deviantart. I just want to have a discussion about what's going on these days. I will continue to post art here and at other places.
MAIN POST: What the heck is going on with deviantart? It's no longer the place to post art? Are people using instagram or tumblr more? Something else?
I feel like I missed the boat on this. There were a few years when I didn't draw much and then when I came back, there aren't many people left. I just went through my friends list and cleaned it up. I only took off people who haven't been active for years or I didn't remember why I was watching them or who they were. Anyone who was watching me back, I left alone, inactive or not, so no worries.
I'm posting my art now on tumblr and instagram if anyone wants to follow me. Let me know who you are there and I will follow you back.
Also... anyone doing nanowrimo this year? Tell me a
Fandom Palette Meme (You request, I draw)Originally posted on Tumblr. Here's the link: http://miraculous-mask.tumblr.com/image/141877919581
1) Pick one character
Fandoms I will draw from:
-any of my original characters
-Others will be considered, but I reserve the right to say no
2) Pick a palette by name : http://miraculous-mask.tumblr.com/image/141877919581
3) I will draw your choice character in the palette of your choice
4) I may not finish. For this, I apologize, but I will do my best!
Let's start with 5 slots:
1) Tracy (not on dA) Kyle from Paying the Consequences (original) Palette: Candy Fire
2)SuperXLilXCutie Draco from Harry Potter, Palette: Sky Moss
3) WereKatt Hermione (Harry Potter) from book two when she turns into a cat girl, Palette: Black ice

Instagram + Commission UpdateHi, everyone! I was feeling crappy for a week with strep, and then today I fell on some ice right on my knee. It's pretty painful, but I'm fairly sure I didn't bust my kneecap. My whole body is sore from the fall. It's like just as soon as I start feeling better from the strep, I mess up something else. So I'm still thinking about posting a journal for commissions, but it might be a week or so when I feel like I can tackle it. I think I will only do 2 at a time so I don't overwhelm myself.
I also wanted to point you to my instagram, where I've been posting sketches and WIPs. I also post pics of my nails and polish, along with some occasional other random pics. You can follow me here: https://www.instagram.com/duskblue/
Thanks for being supportive, everyone You guys are all awesome <3
Any Interest in Commissions? + A Friend's ContestHi, everyone I've been thinking about it for several days, and feeling like I'd maybe like to do some commissions. I know there are not as many people on dA as there used to be, so I'm just simply asking right now. Would anyone be interested?
If there is interest, I will come up with a price list and everything else needed in a separate journal. (Right now I'm recovering from strep. yuck.) I know I haven't been the speediest person in the past, but I'm older and a bit more experienced with things now, so I think I could have a better handle on it. I would start with only 3 to make sure I completed everything in a timely manner.
I also wanted to let you know that my friend, Lavandula-BJD, is thinking about holding a contest for some points. Head on over to her journal if you're interested
Dramione Requests CLOSED!Hi I have felt like I've been in such an art rut in the past month or so. I want to do some more Dramione fanart, but my inspiration has all but left me. So... here's where you come in. Please request what you would like to see me draw (Dramione, aka Draco/Hermione only). I have 5 slots open. First five will (hopefully) be drawn.
Note: if you request something that I'd rather not draw or I don't feel like I can pull off, I'll ask you to request an alternate situation. I will not draw anything R-rated.
Dramione Open Slots:
Happy Birthday, deviantart! Hearts!How long have you been on DeviantArt? 11 years! I've been here most of the time it's been around
What does your username mean? Well I created this screen name when I was 16. I have an Irish last name and I worked at an Irish gift shop at the time. Seemed appropriate.
Describe yourself in three words. Quiet, Creative, Dreaming
Are you left or right handed? Right.
What was your first deviation? OMG it's been so long. I don't think this is my very first deviation, but I deleted some really old stuff a long time ago.
What is your favourite type of art to create? Anime/Disney styled cartoons.
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? 100% Disney style. I've always wanted to draw in this style, but Anime has corrupted my own style XD. I do like how it turned out though
What was your first favourite? I don't think this is my first one because so many have been deleted throughout the years
Hello! Anime and such :)Hi, everyone! It had been a while since my last journal entry and I wanted to boot it off my page, so here is a new one! What's been going on? I've been writing and drawing (more drawing than I have been in the last several years) and I hope to do more. What have you been up to?
I started watching Anime again (sort of) and I'm wondering if anyone out there can suggest their new favorites to me? (like in the last 3 years or current)
If you've been watching me over the years, you know the kind that I like: Funny, semi-romantic, adventure, fantasy, or non-fantasy. I tend to not like super dark things nor do I like sci-fi robots and such. I also don't like extreme drama.
New Anime I've watched so far:
Yona of the Dawn - This one is ongoing. It's a romantic-historical fantasy. Love it!
Blue Exorcist - This is probably my fave one on the list. I love the MC
The Devil is a Part-Timer! - Okay this one is also in the running for fav
Nanowrimo? :DHi, everyone! So who is doing nanowrimo this year? What kind of story are you writing? Tell me about it!!

I'll for sure add you back
I'm writing a Young Adult novel this year. And more pop stars >.> (that's my thing)
Pumpkin Patterns + Nanowrimo!Hi everyone!
Halloween is approaching and I'm thinking about what I want to do for my pumpkin this year. I can't really find anything I like, so I'm thinking about making my own pattern. Does anyone have any ideas? Maybe something you'd like to use yourself? Here's the pumpkin pumpkin I made several years ago:
Nanowrimo!!! Who is doing it? (Do I have you on my buddy list there? If not, please comment here and add me! I'll add you back ) I have my story nearly ready to write... it's gonna be awesome this year. I have a feeling. *-*
My novel is called: Everywhere and Nowhere
It's about: A misguided pop star who tries to get away from his life temporarily, only to realize there is no escaping it.
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
Super Smash Bros x Attack on Titan Opening 2I FINISHED IT!!!!! :iconfinallyplz:
I can't believe I'm done...after 6 months of working (Could've been 4 or 5 if school wasn't in the way all the time...T__T) I'm done...
My initial deadline was by the end of April, but....I finished a lot earlier than that. I FEEL INVINCIBLE NOW!!!!
If you're gonna comment, it would be nice if you were to comment on the actual YouTube page. But if you can't because of reasons, then it's okay....I guess....
Feel free to share on Tumblr or other websites as long as you link back to the original video page.

Collection: My Little Pony plz - Mane Cast 1/2Hello, my sexy ponies!
Yes, I totally stole that greeting from the adorable :iconkezzi-rose: whose profile you should definitely visit. I have never seen a cuter one on deviantArt
This is a collection of so-called plz-accounts related to the animated television series "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic". If you have not seen it yet, this is your first step in joining the herd. Just watch the Pilot Episode and see if it can win your sympathy The original collection comes from MLPFiMplz, but it has not been updated in a while, so I thought I make it 20% cooler
Since the size of a Journal entry is limited to 60KB, I had to split the collection:
Mane Cast 1/2: Greeting; Explanations; Twilight Sparkle, Pinkie Pie, Apple
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.
