AND I AWAKEN FROM MY MONTHS LONG SLUMBERHaha, I'm back in business! I'm dusting the cobwebs off this DA account and uploading more bead sprites and pictures! How've you guys been all this time?!
Hey Everybody!How's everybody been? The purpose of this journal is just to alert everybody that I'm not dead and still active! I've made some bead sprites recently but haven't posted them. School and tumblr have been my Achilles' Heel. Once I go through my 3,000 DA notifications that I've let accumulate I'll start posting again. Until then have a wonderful day!
WELP it's been fun guys....To enlighten those who may not know I'll be starting college in two days so I won't be online as much as I used to. You can still send me messages and I'll continue to make bead sprites but as I said, at a slower pace since studies come before recreation!
I hope everybody's having an awesome summer and here's to a fantastic fall !
p.s. you can also find me on tumblr --> http://gentle-dandy.tumblr.com/
Crikey it's been much too long!!Hello chaps it's nice to be speaking with you guys again! Just as a casual reminder to all my lovely Watchers I'd like to say that no I'm not dead on DA it's just that tumblr has been eating my time. As soon as I get more beads I have like a TON OF NEW IDEAS for bead sprites I want to try out. Money has been sorta tight lately though. The fact that I bought a $20 katana from BudK.com didn't help necessarily either. Speaking of which I made a review of it on Tumblr so go check that out if you're interested! How has everybody been doing? I've also had very little time for bead sprites because I'm getting ready for college this fall! How exciting!
Anime MidAtlantic 2013So yeah as evidenced by my deluge of pictures I went to AMA this weekend. And I had an AWESOME time ! It was cool getting to go see all my fellow anime/pop-culture loving brethren and sistren decked out in cosplay and hang out with my friends! I went as Bro Strider on Saturday and Sunday. I would have liked to have tried out my other prepared cosplays but alas it was too hot for it. I hope to go again next year and to anyone who went I hope to see you at Nekocon this year!
WOOOOO IT'S ALMOST MAY TIME TO MAKE BEAD SPRITESHello and good afternoon everybody! I haven't been all too active on DA what with AP exams encroaching quite quickly but I haven't called it quits just yet! I'll put my itinerary of what I have planned for the next month.

HOMESTUCK GOD TIER PLZ ICONSHello everybody! Ah, the weather is finally starting to act as it should and be spring! I know I haven't been too active in terms of bead sprites lately and I'm still working on ordering some more! I have some pretty big plans ahead! Aside from some HUGE bead sprites I have planned I'm also putting together my cosplay for Nekocon 2013! I'm pretty pumped about it! (Nekcon isn't till November but who says I can't be excited now eh?)
Soooo until I release more stuff here enjoy these god tier plz icons I made~
I Going to Miss you Moustache'd PikachuWell it was very fun while it lasted but today marks the day my premium membership expires. Special thanks to Werbenjagermanjensen for giving me this fine gift 3 months ago! I thoroughly enjoyed the extra features the premium membership granted and though I'm sad to watch it go I'm glad I had it at all! Apologies for not being as active as I usually am but school work does take precedence. I'm also kinda low on beads so until I garner enough cash to order more I won't be uploading bead sprites anytime soon.
Anyway I hope you're all having a fantastic day! Feel free to hit me up for a chat.

To those who may not know, my ultimate bab is an Inuyasha OC I created named Yukiko.
For this contest, It'll be focused on her or her family. (who are also Inuyasha OCs)
She's paired with a canon character from the anime,
and if you have an issue with oc x canon then this may not be the contest for you. T u T;
Drawing anyone from her family is optional!
Drawing her with her fox companion Liam is preferred, but also optional <3
And I'd honestly swoon if anyone drew her with Sesshomaru.

SAVE THE LOUD HOUSE!!!IF YOU LIKE TLH, THEN SPREAD THIS IMMEDIATELY!!!!!
If you didn't know, I like this recent show on Nick called The Loud House, and you should go check it out too!
But that's not the thing.... The thing is that One Million Moms is trying to cancel this show for a REALLY stupid reason. Here's why:
In the episode "Overnight Success.", It appears that the Louds are having a slumber party. In one scene, Lincon's friend Clyde gets dropped off by his parents for the slumber party. Seems ok, right? But NOOO, the Moms are angry because Clyde has TWO Dads IN A TINY LITTLE CAMEO. AND THAT'S THE ONLY THING THEY KNOW ABOUT THE EPISODE!!!
Unfortunately, children are now being exposed to same-sex marriage on a network that is designed for kids.
And that's a bad thing HOW???? That's like saying "Unfortunately, children are now being exposed to b

One Year Laterhttp://koili.deviantart.com/journal/Well-546094597
Exactly one year ago, I was alone in my room, crying. Panicking about what was going to happen in a few hours. I was going to leave behind the only life I knew.
One year ago, I was covered in grease, sweat and dirt. I showered once a month. I barely ate. My clothes and bedding were never washed. I was awoken or kept up every night by my drunken mother who would scream at me for no reason. Every night ended in tears until I passed out from exhaustion. I know she tried to be a good mom, and it was my fault she started drinking in the first place.
I had known :iconchillaid: for five years prior. We had gotten close in 2013 over Animal Crossing: New Leaf. We both found each other at the right time. Our friendship flourished from there. We roleplayed every night and bonded so much. We got so close. I considered her my sister.
:iconchillaid: would hear what my mom would do over Skype. She would stay up with me for the entire night comforting
What's with 'Studying from Life'!?This is the revisiting of a news article I wrote a few years back.
Allow me to begin this article by mentioning that this was written with aspiring professionals in mind. For those of you who wish to pursue art as a hobby with no intention to make it a career choice, I have no doubts in your abilities as an artist, but art for you is a pleasure seeking thing. I would never wish to turn it into something even remotely reminiscent of 'stressful work'--as a hobby should never come to that. So for you hobbyists, feel free to take this article in, but by no means feel obliged to apply the information if you do not find enjoyment in doing so.
As for you aspiring pros, this is an inevitable and unavoidable step you must take in pursuit of your career. This is your job--and if you don't like it, you're probably pursuing the wrong career!
But I digress.
I, like many of you--strive to be a professional in the field of art. In particular, I am an illustrator. I've been fortunate enough to
