Okay. So I've decided to enter the art contest at Suncoast this Sunday o~o;;

I went up there to talk to the manager lady, and she said they're gonna hold it (as in everything going on that day) from around one to five. So.. I asked her if I could possibly either bring my stuff and scramble back to work or have someone bring it for me. She said I could, so yay. She also said there's only one entry per person, so mew. I have to decide on whether I wanna enter my Renji/Hihiou Zabimaru picceh, or this new pic I'm working on.

Which, by the way, I've come to a realization. The only time that I draw (and draw GOOD) is when I'm roleplaying. I kid you freakin' not. Anything that I put my best effort into was done while I was in the middle of playing around. Like my idea to draw that Renji pic. Yeah >_> Then of course there's my lil set series now of Rangiku. Since I've been RPing her a lot recently.
Clicky here to seeee~Collapse )
But yeah. I realize this tonight as I'm sitting here trying to draw this new picceh of teh Shiro-chan o_o And get a complete and utter BLOCK despite the fact that I know EXACTLY how I want this pic to look. So I sit at my computer desk and manage to get a little more done on it.. but yet again, nothing.

It's at this point that I realize I've gone without RPing for at least four days now @=@; which.. kinda explains why I'm just stuck here now staring at my computer screen going... Okay. I can draw this. I can.. draw... ah fuck it -_-

It's really irritating me now at this point. Because I KNOW if I were to be rping right now, I'd prolly already be done with this. It took me all of two days to finish my Renji pic, so why should this be any different?

Anyways. I'm fixing to go and flop on my bed to at least color some stuff. At least that doesn't seem to be affected by this block e_e

Feeling sick to my stomach. My guess as to why... ate waaaay too much yesterday @_@;; I have to run off to a couple of places today to finish off my Christmas shopping. Gyah. Ought to be nice and crazy out there today... At any rate. I'm finishing it today. So there. >/

I like listening to Keiichi.net now. Muchly x3;

So. Plans for today. Go finish my shopping for myself, as well as Steph since she just handed me off some money to do so >_>; Go mail a couple of things at the post office (which also ought to be .... quite interesting. I remember how things were last year in Monroe, so I can only imagine what they'll be like here). Come home and wrap up said presents. And hopefully spend the rest of my day off just laying around. Or wait. Movies.. hrm.. *evil grin, plot* I could go see a certain movie I've been wanting to...

At any rate, I'm gonna go now. See ya'll in a bit hopefully.

Edit:
Holy crap. o_o Just learned that one of my favorite songs is actually from Naruto. Woohoo. *hums along with Wind*

I love how people assume that just because you're a newb to something, that you're .. well. A n00b.

Sorry Rage1145. No scamming this newbie to Runescape. ¬.¬

It's really sad that people resort to scamming... And even sadder that people fall for it.

Whenever this guy came up to me, the first warning light was that he was level 20 something. What level 20 person would want to trade something with a newbie that barely has ANYTHING?

Second. He kept nudging me. "Come on. Do it."

When I finally went through to the last trade screen, I suddenly came across this:

"For your: Bronze sword You're getting: Absolutely nothing!"

...

So I reject and tell him that if he's going to give me the damn gold to keep it on there.

"Oh, well when you trade they keep the gold and items seperate"

Suuuure buddy.

"I may be new here, but I'm not THAT stupid. I'll be back in a moment" At which point I went and read through the online manual. Gee... when you trade something for gold, the gold really IS supposed to show on the final trade screen. "Eh. Forget about person."

"Do it."

"No thanks. I haven't got the time to be scammed right now."

"Do it now or I'm slaying you."

¬¬ Ooooou. I'm shaking in my little black boots. *flops back, twirling silver-chained watch with a yawn* -_- Like I'm scared of having a newbling character on an online game killed by some pissy fucktard who didn't fool the newbie tottering around aimlessly. Not all of us new people are idiots, moron. *reports for item scamming with a snort*

Peh. Stupid annoying people. As if I don't have to deal with them enough in the real!world, I have to deal with them here online. What a fucking lose/lose situation... -_-;

Concerning Art theft -tracing- on DA, as well as particular styles. [13 Jan 2005|06:00am]
[ mood | crappy ]

-crossposted from DA, purposely made public post-

Funny how things work out... and this 'work out' has seriously got me considering just packing up and leaving for elsewhere. o.o

Ha. u_u; I doubt I will, but still. It really irritates me, because it's like they're pointing us (as in anime/furry) artists in particular.

Read here for info:
http://help.deviantart.com/304/
http://realitysquared.deviantart.com/journal/1832810/
http://realitysquared.deviantart.com/journal/4297750/

I'm seriously not sure what to think ._. YES. I understand the issue of not being able to © an idea or pose or coloring style (as I've had to explain to a few people sometimes ^^; ) Yet people can be allowed to TRACE your exact image, and rename it as their own without giving you a LICK of credit, and you can't do jack shit about it? Uhm. NO. There's a line between inspiration and theft.

Granted, I also don't like the idea of going around flaming people without knowing the complete story. Unless I know for a FACT that they practically Copy/Pasted my friends'/my own art. At that point I feel I have the right to bark all I want to. u.u;

Of course, as an anime artist, I look to the mangaka and other fanartists for 'inspiration', perhaps learning a technique or two. But in the end I form it into my own particular style. I get an image in my head, and draw.

Let me give an example. My recently finished Articuno pic.



I obviously got inspiration for the character from Pokemon. The style that I did it in was lineless watercolors, a technique that I got from watching one of Mewkitty's tutorials on her site. I came up with a pose in my head, and viola. Lords know how many hours later, I have the finished product.

But according to this new 'rule/policy/whatnot' a person could take my articuno image, trace the exact same pose; same coloring style; essentially ALL that I did; and claim that they came up with the picture.

And they wouldn't get in trouble for it. Just as long as they 'did the work themselves'

This all seriously gives me a headache. It really does. Especially since recently the seemingly 'upper-class' artists have been looking down upon anime artists and the like. (Make note of the lil "Oh, I don't see why they're so upset since all anime and furry characters look the same" in the first part of one of those posts...) Sadly, it makes me feel like I'm unwanted here. Like I'm the scum of the earth because of the style that I wish to draw in. And I hate that feeling. Sometimes it seriously makes me wanna curl up in a lil ball and just give up on art.

To me, art isn't about the style that you do it in. Its the FINISHED PRODUCT. I've seen people who take gorgeous photographs, painters that I secretly imagine are in an actual art gallery (rather than just an online one), and fanart of all sorts that makes me wanna cry because I suck so badly compared to them. I respect ALL of those artists, yet the general feeling I get in return is that I'm hated for my style, whether I do original art or fanart.


This user (HimeAndi) sums up my feelings in a shorter and far better manner...

"It is alarming to see so many people leaving the community for other shores, and yet I get the definite sense that many others here, admins and members alike will not care, may in fact be glad to see them gone, because the artists who are leaving are not “serious” artists. So what if the fan-artists, furries and their ilk leave?

"It is shameful, the comments about Anime-artists and Furries. I looked at the galleries of these commenters; most were photographers or vector artists. It is obvious that they regard themselves as “above” many of the other artists here. Art is art; an expression from the soul. How dare these people act so condescending?

"I am just saddened by this whole situation. I suppose it will mean nothing in the end, and certainly not to the “serious” artists. It is too bad really. This cannot help but be very detrimental to DeviantArt in the long run. Who can respect a place that allows the denigration of any segment of its members this way?

[ mood | Grumpy, yet a lil happy. ]

-_-

Well. Weather Channel CONTINUES to say the fucking hurricane is going to hit Florida. *gnaw* More on this in a moment.

First off. Parents are moving :O Back when I was staying with mom and such a few weeks ago, dad came in griping about how ANOTHER store was opening in Mississippi, and that he OBVIOUSLY wouldn't get it, so he wasn't going to apply. Well. His boss called him last week, asking why he hadn't put in for it. Response: My oldest daughter here is graduating this year. I'm NOT moving. Well. The guy told him to just go ahead and do it anyway, and to get the guy to quit pestering him, dad did.

He got called back a few days later and was interviewed. Tuesday, they called and told him they had given him the job. Dad waited till Saturday morning after Em's football game to spring the news, and of course Em was upset... cause she's in guard down at the school... this is her first year of high school with ALL of her friends.... Yeah. Steph was grumpy too because... well. She graduates this year. So yeah.

Where is this store you might ask? Why, only two hours away from me, in Jackson, MS. The good side of Jackson mind you. I'm glad in a way, because NOW it won't be a half a day's drive down to visit my parents -_- Mom is looking for dad an apartment in Jackson to stay in for the time being (kinda like what happened the year I graduated and he went to live down in Baton Rouge) and they will ride the school year out so Stephanie can graduate, and to give Emily plenty enough time to decide what school she wants to go to. Yep. Mom is letting her choose. It's gonna be either Brookhaven (I think) which is an equivalent to what Denham High is. Large school, 5A, winter color guard, the works. OR. McLaurin. Small school, similar to our old school in Sumrall. Believe me. I know this place is small -_- because we went there EVERY year for our first football game. But it only has a miniscule guard program.

Like I said, Em will have the rest of the year and the summer to decide what school she wants to go to.

Back to the business of this fucking hurricane >/

I'm taking all bets now. You can decide on whether you think it will hit A)Texas B) Louisiana (my personal choice) C) Mississippi (which I hope it DOESN'T because I have a LOT of friends back home in MS) D) Alabama E) by some GOD AWFUL chance that it actually HITS Florida like they are so badly wanting this thing to do.

I was supposed to be making plans to go and visit my mom and them within the next few days. Nick can GET OVER IT. I'm NOT driving to Baton Rouge NOT knowing where the hell this thing is going to hit, and people panicking trying to figure out what they're going to do. No. Hell no.

Mom is pissy about it too, because she and dad have been watching this thing like a hawk. Hell. I vaguely mentioned that I had watched it yesterday, and she IMMEDIATELY went and got her charts to tell me where SHE thinks it's going to hit. This is HER thoughts.

"For every notch it goes north, it goes THREE west. The only reason that they STILL try to say that it's going to hit Florida is because they want to say that *gasp* 'Florida got slammed by THREE major hurricanes!'"

.... She's been watching this thing for about a week now.

Dad's store is ALSO keeping a close eye because, well. He works for LOWE'S. They sell plywood and stuff. Unfortunately, he DOESN'T have generators, because Weather Channel FUCKED up the forecast and said it was going to hit Florida. So nearly ALL the stores along the coast sent ALL their generators Florida's way. Order more generators you say? There's a problem with that. The factory can ONLY make 100 generators a day. And they are pumping out as fast as they can now. Dad's store will be LUCKY if they can get a FEW before this hits.

Dad's store has FIVE projected paths. Five scenarios. *this is after watching and taking in EVERY possible weather condition (which there is NOTHING blocking this thing now. That lil front they said would drag it to Florida? GONE. Nothing but popup afternoon storms.)

1. It hits somewhere along the Texas/Louisiana border. What can ya do?

2. It hits SLAM in the middle of Louisiana. Fucking all those who don't get a chance to evacuate. (EX: the people of Grand Isle, LA. There's only ONE road in/out of Grand Isle. I kid you not. They need to know at least THREE/FOUR days ahead of time so they won't fucking DROWN. Running out of time to warn them, Fucktards of the Weather Channel....)

3. It hits the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. Lord help all of my friends there ;'-'; I know Lizzie is already getting her place ready and getting ready to leave there. I hope any of you others that live there do the same.

4. It hits Alabama. Same thing as with the Mississippi folks. Hope ya'll board up and get out.

5. It (for some reason manages to) hits Florida. Florida of course is ready -_- Stupid Weather Channel fucks only warning THEM.

My biggest gripe is the same as my parents'. What about those people that live on the coast of Lousiana where there's only one road in and out? Are we suppose to just say "ONG!!oneshift1!! It's a shame those people had to die!" -_-

I'm off to... I dunno. Get lunch. Prolly gonna call Nick and tell him the news about my dad moving to Jackson. And then tell him there's no way in fucking hell I'm heading SOUTH with a hurricane hitting somewhere on the coast. T-T;;;

Ja minna.

Just thought I'd show a bit of cuteness there for a second. Arigato Mary-chan for finding that and cheering me up a lil ^^ *loves VGCats... and kittens...*

Johnny's Daddy was taking him fishing
When he was eight years old
A little girl came through the front gate
Holding a fishing pole
His Dad looked down and smiled
Said "we can't leave her behind"
Son I know you don't want her to go
But someday you'll change your mind
And Johnny said
Take Jimmy Johnson
Take Tommy Thompson
Take my best friend Bo
Take anybody that you want as
Long as she don't go
Take any boy in the world
Daddy please - don't take the girl

Same old boy same sweet girl
Ten years down the road
He held her tight and kissed her lips
In front of the picture show
Stranger came and pulled a gun
Grabbed her by the arm
Said "if you do what I tell you to do
There won't be any harm"
And Johnny said
Take my money
Take my wallet
Take my credit cards
Here's the watch that my grandpa gave me
Here's the key to my car
Mister give it a whirl
But please - don't take the girl

Same old boy same sweet girl
Five years down the road
There's gonna be a little one
And she says it's time to go
Doctor says the baby's fine
But you'll have to leave
Cause his momma's fading fast
And Johnny hit his knees
And there he prayed
Take the very breath you gave me
Take the heart from my chest
I'll gladly take her place
If you'll let me
Make this my last request
Take me out of this world
God please - don't take the girl

Johnny's Daddy was taking him fishing
When he was eight years old

Just... don't ask. I have a tendancy to think of depressing country songs when I get in certain moods. u.u

If you think you're part of the cause.. yer probably right. But as I've said, I'm NOT going to get overly involved, considering I have my own issues and problems I have to deal with and get a headache over thinking about.

Hug me!
