Random Favourites

deviation in storage by Lingrimm
deviation in storage by Lingrimm

I favorite the things I like and I don't ask for any thanks in return. I'm a selfish person, the things I favorite are because I liked them, lol. And I would like to point out that I am a real human being, so even if you notice something of yours has been favorited but isn't on the first few pages of my favorites, it doesn't mean I'm a computer just favoriting everywhere. I tends to do mass-faving which is often followed by days of no activity.





Also, I will hide your comment if it's a thank you for the favorite.












Also, I will hide your comment if it's a thank you for the favorite.



Not to mention, I will hide all comments saying
"Thanks for the fave"

Thank you for not thanking me.

Instead of thanking me for the fave, why not just say hi to me, tell me how your day's going, what you're up to with your art, what your favorite mythological story is, or some cool random facts you know. Let's have a conversation. :)

Fingers Crossed!

Journal Entry: Thu May 7, 2015, 1:48 AM

I have my fingers crossed that Fry's Electronics will approve me for credit so I can get a new computer. I need it for work plus maybe I'll be able to draw digitally/with my wacom tablet again, something I really miss. If I don't get approved, then I probably won't be able to get a computer until after summer.

Logo Designs by Anomalies13
Logo Designs
These are some logos that I made for some businesses that I actually really like as final products. The only one that's being used by the client is the one for "The Realty," which I am really pleased about. I made three separate versions of the pyramid icon (it's amazing how simple it is to make a vector pyramid, holy sheet!) with the text and of the three, this pyramid logo happened to be the one I was secretly rooting for. So I was glad the client picked that one as their logo. After chatting with them earlier today, it's beginning to sound like I'll be designing a lot more for them beyond my general scope for website branding design (print media design) so I'm looking forward to cracking open my InDesign someday soon. 

In any case. If you ever see the black/red pyramid and "The Realty" anywhere in the future, you can be like "Hey, I know who designed that thing." 

The other two, although both really nice in my opinion, were rejected by the clients. We're still on the drawing board with logos for both of these businesses. A lot of hours went into Lady Justice, which I was definitely going for detail on that one. I'm sad she was rejected. And the last one, I had made like 3 or 4 different globe logos. You'd be surprised how many globe logos you can make. But this one was the only one that was very open and clean, a logo style I've always quite liked and never quite could manage to do (I'm very line-centric in everything I do, so playing around with making parts open versus closed and solid versus having strokes/lines is always a challenge for me) so I was pretty impressed with myself here. The last one was actually the first one in development. Lady Liberty was an hours-long project in Illustrator and I finished the pyramid while in progress with Lady Liberty, so those were kind of simultaneous projects.

Things are going good. My mom is feeling better. I'm slowly paying off my debts. 

I'm also making a list of all my DVDs that I plan to put up on my tumblr twistedtragedies, so that when I get a better laptop, I can *hopefully* get back into livestreaming movies and hanging out with you guys again. Donations for a new laptop would be cool! But, of course, never required. In any case, it probably won't be until the end of summer before i can start saving up for a laptop. 

I've also made an Instagram account where I post my phone photos. Check it out here:

Somewhat embarrassed

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 8, 2015, 8:57 PM

So I am somewhat embarrassed to do this however I have added paypal "Donate" buttons to most of my Tumblr blogs and links to the donate page on some of my art submissions and DA journals. 

In short, this journal entry is not an attempt to generate pity of any kind to motivate people to click that donate button. This journal is just to let you guys know, "hey, I did a thing. Here's why." Pretty much.

So, to begin: 

I'm just in a really rough spot right now. I have been since November and it's taking forever to get myself in a better place with my life. I think I might have discussed my troubles in previous journal entries? I'm not sure. Sadly I am not as active on DA as I'd like to be.

But right now, things are rough. I'm working two jobs [both part time with fluctuating schedules and don't pay all that well] and I try to pick up side work too. I'm also preparing for a yard sale this weekend and I'm making jewelry that I plan to sell on Etsy some time within this year (I'm slow). 

The rough spot I'm in has really put me in a place psychologically/mentally to where I honestly lack the energy and motivation to create art and I've even decreased significantly in my online roleplaying activity.

I owe people a lot of money, which I have every intention to pay, but it'll take some time since I have to pay a car loan every month. That in itself isn't too bad. I can deal with that. I live with my mom, she usually covers the rent and the bills.

But my mom's getting older, and she's really sick and she's in pain a lot of the time (she has sciatica, which only just cropped up a year ago in January, after my dad died) and she's losing a lot of weight. She's seeing all kinds of doctors but they can't figure out what's wrong. Now she has this really bad stomach pain and had to cancel work for a few days this week which means we're going to be out from some income to cover the bills.

I already don't make much so paying my debts to people and trying to cover what my mom can't is really stressful for me. And today, my boss [for my graphic design job] is really stressing the importance for me to get a decent computer. He wants me to get a computer that I can work from home with. Which, honestly, if I had the money and I didn't have so much shit to deal with since November, I'd probably have a great computer for graphic design work by now. (My current laptop has killed like two or three hard-drives in the basically 5 years I've had it, and now it's over-heating. Basically, I can't trust it at all.)

So trying to get by on very little and being expected to pay for so much at the same time, most of these things being out of my control (like the car crapping out on my mom and I to where we bought a new car in December only for it to crap out with a likely bill of $2600 to get it back up and running so we went out and got a new car that I'm now expected to pay off for the next two year), is really stressing me out. I can't pay personal debts, pay for car insurance, pay off the car loan, cover the money lost from my mom's unexpected/unwanted sick days, AND buy a new computer. 

I just have a ton on my plate right now and I'm kind of like: 

But honestly, this journal isn't about telling people my sob story in an attempt to get pity cash. I don't want people to pity me. I don't even like the idea of having little donate buttons on my journals and in my artist's comments. But it's kind of just a little hope that maybe someone who likes my work or the resources I've provided in the past and basically just want to tip me(?) for the resources. 

It's a donation button, not a "you have to pay to see this/use that" button. So it's just an option. 

I just wanted to write a journal explaining why the donate button is there. 

In a nutshell, it's there because, yes, I could really use the money (even just $1), I really need money, but it's not there to guilt-trip people, I'm not writing this journal to make people be like "Aww, poor you. Here's a $1." Because a lot of people have it rough. I'm no exception. But I am just hopeful that maybe if someone's found some of my stuff useful and feels compelled enough, they'll want to donate a $1 in appreciation for the stuff I've posted? Basically.

My resources are here to stay. I don't have plans to delete them or this account. I might be REALLY inactive, but I'm not going to make things unavailable. That's not cool. I'm a huge advocate for getting things for free. Which is one reason why I don't like having a donate button/link on my stuff.

But it is a "Donate" button because donations are just a nice gesture, but not obligatory in any way.

And I will NEVER put up some clause on my work like "If you want to use it commercially, you need to send me a donation." Or something. That's messed up. Some of my things are strictly for personal use for a reason. And likewise, some of my things are open to use any way you see fit, personal, non-profit, commercially. Whatever you want. 

Anyway, this journal pretty much went off in a tangent. I mostly just wanted to vent my frustrations. And yeah, just letting you know there's a stupid donate button/link on some of my stuff.

If You've Got an Art BlockI've had an art block since May 2010 and it's finally starting to defrost.
I've found that one thing that's helping me defrost my art block is just forcing myself to draw. :XD:
I set up a 17x11in canvas in Photoshop CS5 and start doodling. I tell myself "Fill this blank page with stuff." I experiment with new brushes, brush sizes, and colors. I also experiment with color application. So if you have an art block, just open a Photoshop doc and force yourself to draw. (Or um, if it's easier or you don't have a tablet to work with, bust out a piece of paper and doodle little sketches.) Anything that comes to mind. It also helps if you maybe narrow yourself to limitations if you're feeling stumped. For example, I limited myself to Anomalies characters so I've been drawing them a lot and focusing on my story as a result giving me inspiration to draw and create more.
It's pretty fun. I don't think about anatomy errors and issues. I don't focus too much on sticking within the lines of my doodl
Drawing ResourcesHey people,
I started this journal because I had been dissatisfied with my art skills so since May 28, 2011, I've been on the hunt for material to help me out. PLEASE NOTE: This journal gets UPDATED! So check back every few months or so for anything new! And if you find something useful, please suggest it! If you have your own collection of resource links, please share them! :D And if you're browsing this list and encounter a site link that no longer works, let me know. :)
ANNOUNCEMENT! My journal is becoming too big. So soon in the future, I will be making a PART 2 to this journal. Some of these sections will be moved there, and the ones left behind will be expanded upon!!! Please continue to leave suggestions. Let me know what has helped you out. I would love to know.
UPDATE!  December 29, 2014: Instead of making a PART 2, I will be moving all current information found here and will be making all future updates on my website, 
You want to make a Flash Dress Up Game?But you're not entirely familiar with Flash? WELL FEAR NOT! Deviantart supplies A VAST AMOUNT OF TUTORIALS from people who know and have some fair amount of understanding of what to do.
So I'll help you get started by supplying some information and also recommending a couple very nice and informative tutorials about Flash. Plus don't be discouraged if you suck at drawing in Flash, I provided a fair amount of information for an alternative solution at the end!  
What you need:
- Flash* (any kind of Flash where you can write Action Script 2.0... NOT Action Script 3.0, these tutorials cover AS 2.0. Flash is not a free program (legally). You can obtain Flash at
- Time
- Patience
*If you're wondering what kind of Flash I use, I'll tell you. I use a super old school Flash that does the job juuust fine. It's called Macromedia Flash MX, also known as "Flash 6.0 r25" Yuuuup, really old. I've had it since junior year in high school (approx. 5 years). I have Flash Pro
Tips on How to ImproveMy good friend, Draethius, had posted a DA journal a long time ago (almost a whole year) that he has long since removed that was about how he didn't feel like a real artist and wasn't sure how he could improve. So I wrote him an essay lengthy Note in reply. And I kind of forgot about it since it happened along the time when I was throwing a tantrum over that one chick I call Otto.
But I was going through some documents from my Back Up files and found the document I wrote to Drake and decided "Hey, I should post this! :D" Granted, there's moments when I kind of go off on a tangent, but I think this could be helpful to someone...maybe?
Here it goes:
I can't tell you how to feel like a real artist, but most cases, artists are never satisfied with their work and are constantly pushing themselves to get better. This is a good thing, otherwise we'd never improve. But it can also be a bad thing, if you push yourself too much, you can essentially burn out. So
My Color TutorialsHey guys,
I spent a few days writing these tutorials for you so I hope you take the time to read them and maybe even learn some stuff from them:

You can download both tutorials in a ZIP here:
I also shared some helpful resources in the comments, so be sure to try them out:

Lastly, I shared some extra material, some tutorials that helped me figure out my own path:

Again, I hope all this is helpful to you. :)

♥ I'm pretty open to ideas. :D Just know that I can draw a lot of stuff, but there's equally a lot of things I can't or won't draw. (Some things I may draw for myself, but I will not draw for other people.) Here's my general list.
:bulletgreen: I'm comfortable with drawing humans/humanoids the most. ♥
:bulletgreen: I can draw 4-legged creatures somewhat decently.
:bulletgreen: I'm okay with robots/androids/mechs/cyborgs as long as they're not too bulky and too far away from the frame of a human figure.
:bulletgreen: I'm open to drawing mythical beasts or creatures that are made up. ♥
