11 Years without a emmy...What does a person have to do around here to get an Emmy? … or a DD.
So today marks my 11th anniversary on DeviantArt. Thereby making it the longest relationship I've managed to maintain.
In the time I've joined I've mange to grow exponentially as an artist, I even graduated college and stated working as a professional graphic designer.
Here are some interesting stats according to DA
I have 125 Deviations (this number doesn't include the ones I've locked or just plain deleted out of embarrassment)
14,529 pageviews (really in 11 years? ugh!)
119 Watchers (hey there)
I've favorited 1,910 deviations.
My works were however viewed 74,887 times

I know I don't post much or often here, I actually spend most of my time drooling over everyone else's work. But I do love this website and the community here. I've seen many art communities rise and fall and DeviantArt has st
A year of living creatively...Come this Thursday March 18th, I will be turning yet another year older. Now I normally don't make new years resolution aka promises I don't plan to keep. But last year I made somewhat of a resolute to take advantage of any opportunity that came my way. Now it might not be a resolution but it was something was determined to do and wow what a great year it has been because of it. Well this year I wanted to do the same thing again. So I decided it was going to be a year of creating things.
A Year of Living Creatively.
Here is the breakdown.
I will start the book "The Artist's Way" by Julia Cameron - http://www.theartistsway.com/. This is a book that is supposed to be life changing for anyone seeking to be creative. It has been recommended to me by tons of people, so really excited to finally start it.
12 Digital Paintings. Yep at least 1 painting a month doesn't have to be sublime it just has to be a painting.
12 Traditional Artworks of any kind.
52-365 Photos. So
2009 Kidney WalkThis year I will be walking and participating in the 2009 Kidney Walk in Philadelphia this October. As someone who has gone through kidney failure and now deals with kidney disease, this is a cause that is very close to my heart. Raising awareness and knowledge is needed to help prevent this disease.
Facts about Kidney Disease:
- Chronic kidney disease is a public health problem affecting 26 million Americans
- Risk factors include diabetes, high blood pressure and family history
- One in nine American adults have kidney disease and most dont know it
- 92,000 people are waiting for organ transplants
- 17 people die each day waiting for an organ transplant
- It is the 9th leading cause of death in the US.
If you would like to donate please stop by my donation page - http://walk.kidney.org/goto/eddidit to donate (any amount is greatly appreciated)
I will also be selling my Set Free poster - where proceeds will go to achieving my goal of $500 (US). If you would like to purchase this
52 and thank youOn another note I started a project called 52. In an attempt to challenge myself while also building my skills, I created 52. It's 52 themes that are done in a 52minute time frame. If you want to follow along you can at the Epilogue Forums > http://www.epilogue.net/cgi/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=21694 or on Pixelbrush > http://www.pixelbrush.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3935
Right now I've done 2 themes with 5 pictures. I'm still tweaking the rules. Right now I'm not sure if I should keep it in the order I have it. I'm an artist I'm meant to break rules especially my own .
Digital vs TraditionalAs I've been looking at some artwork lately, I've found myself being drawn to traditional art more and more lately. There is just something about it that is very appealing to me right now. Then I started to think, I actually haven't sat down and drawn anything really in... well I can't even remember. Sure I doodle here and there, but no actual thought out illustrations.
Then I realized that one of the reasons I went digital was because it was easier. But now I really miss drawing. But fear that I might not know what I'm doing any more.
Has anyone else found themselves in this situation. Has going digital effected your ability to use traditional mediums. After all there is no undo or color picker when it comes to traditional. You are stuck with what you do.
If you started off traditional then went to digital, do you ever feel the need to go back. Why did you make the switch in the first place.
I'm not one to make New Years Goals. But I think this is one that I will make. I w
Movie Quote TimeHere are 15 of my favorite movie quotes, then you guys must guess what movie they come from.
NO cheating and using google or IMDB to guess them. If you don't know, let someone else guess.
1. What we've got here is failure to communicate. - Cool Hand Luck :iconquickreaver:
2. I would like to say this. Tardiness is not something you can do on your own. Many, many people contributed to my tardiness. I would like to thank my parents for never giving me a ride to school; the LA city bus driver who took a chance on an unknown kid and last but not least, the wonderful crew from McDonalds who spend hours making those egg McMuffins without which I'd never be tardy. - Clueless :iconmercuralis:
3. Why torture yourself when life will do it for you? Who said that? I did! Go ahead and quote me.
4. I was impressed to see that she made proper use of the word 'myriad' in her suicide note.
5. It's amazing the clarity that comes with psychotic jealousy.
6. Without a heart I can never really k
Epic Logo, Epic FailAnd the DA community eats it up. But this is just over glorified Spec Work. It's also a sad excuse for not putting the time, money and effort into hiring a marketing/design company to develop your logo and brand. This is a common mistake by many companies. It's upsetting for several reasons.
1. There is a lot that goes into creating a brand for a company. It's not just a pretty icon and some words. A logo and everything around it has to have meaning. It's the icon of the company. It should tell you who the company is, what they do. It should be targeted toward a demographic. These are the things that must be considered when creating a logo. It's also the things that allows a logo to stand the test of time.
2. It gives DA a bunch of free logos for which they could do with whatever. They don't have to actually use that logo but take the concept. Since concepts can't be copyrighted.
3. It gives every dick and jane with a copy of photoshop or illustrator the thought that they ar
I think it's time...I have a secret. To some it's not a secret only because I chose for it to not be. To others it is... I'm not a kiss and tell kind of guy, but I'm not going to hide anything either. But I decided that I will no longer put my feelings and emotions aside to make others happy. Even if it means they learn about the true me. Even if it means that they might not agree with what I agree with. Even if it means they will not be my friend.
I feel that friends are those who stick by you through thick and thin. That even though you will make mistakes they will tell you "You're an idiot" but still love you the same.
I've gone far to long not living.
Man is born free but everywhere he is in chains.. - Rousseau
Sometimes the things that are meant to free us enslave us - Unknown
So I decided that the people I'm going to have around me have to abide by certain criteria.
1. They must accept me for me.
2. They must not hold any preconceived notions of what I'll be

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.

KilalaverseXPandoraverse Contest!Been a while! Anyways, I've been wanting to do this one for a while now~
Your task is simple. Pick a character from the Kilalaverse, then pick a Pandoraverse character, and make a next gen character for them!
(Ex. ClaireXPandora, NidraXStormy, StarburstXCupcake, etc.)
This is primarily a design contest but, you will get extra points for creating a personality for the characters you make.
You are allowed THREE entries. One entry equalling one character. You can upload them all in one deviation, or each as it's own. (You can only win once).Traditional art and Digital art is allowed. Bases are also allowed but you MUST credit the base maker. Failure to do so will result in your entry not being judged. Same goes for if you're heavily refer
