BloodflowerWell well well, I've safely returned from Austria and have already put the first week of my studies behind me. Yup, I actually survived. Getting used to my new rhythm was actually not as scary as I thought. Met some really sweet people as well. Yay for being social.
Please don't expect new art any time soon, I'm just way too tired during the week to touch anything; I tend to spend my evenings watching TV and recently Doctor Who again, or reading. And then when the weekend comes...the motivation simply won't. Yeah, sorry, I'm still knee-deep in my first and worst art block ever. The little ray of light that July brought sadly didn't stick with me.
Still got quite an amount of messages to go through in my inbox as well, I'll do my best not to take TOO long.
So what's new with you guys?
Busy Busy BusyYup, really busy for once. Well, not yet. But soon.
On July 30th I'll be leaving for Austria to celebrate my mom's 60th birthday and visit some friends back home. Really looking forward to that besides the 25h bus/train trip. On my birthday. Yaaay...
I'll be back on August 7th and then on August 11th I'll already be starting my education. That means a five day week with hours from 9am till 17pm each day for about ten months. Add an hour of commute to that in the morning and the evening and you can guess I won't be getting much more active than I am right now during that time.
Particularly during my time in Austria I can't promise to be very active at all, I'll have to see if I can leech a bit off my sister's wi-fi here and there but I'll have a pretty packed schedule in general so we'll see how that works out.
Just letting you guys know.
Hope you're all doing great!
Wet LeatherWell I'm depressed. Tired and freakishly sad.
That week and a half passed way too quickly and I already missed VanoVaemone the moment she stepped on the train. Argh. *digs a deep hole and jumps in*
We've had a great time. Yep, I'd been worried I wouldn't be a good host but in the end we really hit it off. Which made it all the harder to part this morning.
I've drawn some as you could see. That's great. And I feel like drawing more. That's even better.
But right now I'll stick with being tired and sad.
I'll sit down and reply to all your comments and other feedback as soon as I can pull myself a little bit together.
I'm sorry for my inactivity.
Just a ZombieReally, I swear, I'm not dead.
I've got messages PILING up like crazy in my inbox and I just can't get myself to clean that mess up. A message or two per day, that's all I manage.
The good thing is: while I'm partly still tired from my meds, in general it's good reasons that make me so absent. The only thing that kinda sucks is the fact that my artistic motivation is at an all time low. I just can't WANT to draw. It'll come back. Eventually.
Right now there's two things that have been messing with my rhythm.
1) I've got a definite confirmation that I've been accepted for my education which basically made me cry of joy and relief. This affects my sleep 'cause anticipation and stuff. But not even remotely as much as...
2) In two days I'll be picking up the most amazing girl on this whole planet at the train station here and I'm gonna be able to keep her here for a whole week and a half. (this girl here of course: VanoVaemone <3 )I swear this literally messes up my sleep like shit
First Stream (Castlevania 64) overThanks to eveybody who was there, I had a great time!
I've recently, with the help of my lovely assistant VanoVaemone, configured my livestream channel for gaming streams so you can expect some of those very soon!
I will be streaming two games:
No idea what I'll start with, it'll depend on my mood. :>
Time will most likely be late at night, between 22:00 and 00:00 GMT+2.
If this would be SUPER inconvenient for you, let me know and I'll see if I can add differently timed sessions too.
Either way I'll keep you guys up to date!

I'll give you until tomorrow night for this; if there's gonna be several equally high scores the points will simply be divided.
Off you go!
1. I was born in...

Austrian Pride, B*tches!Yes, guys, YES! We haven't won since 1966 and holy f*ck, I can't believe we won with such an awesome act! Freedom, acceptance and equality for the win!
And Conchita for president!
Got a Date to Prom Yet?Well I sure do. I'll be taking my lovely VanoVaemone out on May 10th.
No idea what I'm talking about?
Have a look at this journal by Rising-Artists and you'll understand:
It's a neat event that allows you to get a feature for both you and a friend, so why not join and spread the love?
And while you're at it, I'd love it if you could give my beautiful date some love as well! ovo
Have a look at her gallery that is filled with wonderful poetry, fanfics, stamps, original stories and much more!
She even offers ultra cheap poetry commissions, so seriously, go check her out, I promise it'll be worth your while!
Even if you don't speak French, why not just leave a nice comment? You'll have the chance to get to know a really incredible person that way! :3
Vano's Profile (& Commissions)
Well, maybe I'll see you at prom.
Just so you know...I'm really sorry for being so inactive and f*cking slow lately. I'm working on some pieces for others but some sh*t has been stealing pretty much all my energy so I spend half the day trying not to fall asleep. As you can imagine, not very helpful when you gotta draw.
But don't worry guys, I'm doing fine otherwise, I just need my body to learn to play along. I've even got my dream education pretty much within reach now so things are going pretty darn well for me. I actually feel that for once things are going just right in my life. I'm finally actively fighting some health issues that have been with me for almost a decade now, I'll soon be going back to school, I've got a wonderful hubby and to top it off there's this amazing girl that has been making me very happy lately as well. (you know who you are )
So...what's up with you guys?

All deviants may vote, INCLUSIVE who is participating; the participants may vote for themselves and ask friends and watchers to vote; this blog may have publicity by all means and be submitted in groups.
The work with most votes wins 130 points;

PE: Anime/Manga - Digital ArtGallery Month
Hello everyone! Welcome to the Anime & Manga half of this week!
Today Gwendolyn12 and me are going to explain the different categories of the Anime & Manga Gallery.
Since this Gallery has 2 different main categories the Gallery Overview is split in 2 articles.
In my article I will explain you our Digital Media category including the sub-categories. The Traditional Media category will be explained later by Gwendolyn12!
What is Anime & Manga?
Anime is based of the word Animation. These are Japanese animated productions usually featuring hand-drawn or computer animations. When you talk about an Animation in Manga style. That's Anime.

Gallery Descriptions: Traditional Art, part 1Galleries Month
Traditional Drawings and Paintings
These two subcategories of Traditional Art contain almost the same sub-galleries - the only exception is Technical Drawings in Drawings subcategory. There are many definitions to describe what paintings and drawings are and you can still add a huge "except..." at the end of each. General rule is: in drawing, you create the picture with lines, while paintings use filled shapes or surfaces. For painting, the medium is a combination of pigment and liquid (simply put), but some pictures done with dry media (such as dry pastel) can also be called paintings, following the previously mentioned definition.
Pictures focusing on the formal, non-representational aspect of imagery. They emphasize lines, colours and generalized or geometrical forms, deprived of reality and recognisable objects or beings. Very often confused with Surreal.
JULY + AUGUST: ART FEATURESThese are the featured submissions from the groups UnlimitedAnime-Manga, DrawAnimeArt and Manga-Anime-4ALL for the months of July and August! Check them out & give them love!
And please this journal so that it can reach larger audience, thus giving more exposure to the artists.

Gallery Descriptions: Traditional Art, part 2Galleries Month
This sub-gallery is for three-dimensional or two-dimensional artistic compositions, made by putting together found objects not generally thought of as art materials.
Two-dimensional works made of a combination of other forms, often including photographs, newspaper clippings, or any other type of object which can easily be glued down.
An artistic genre of three-dimensional works, that branching from sculpture, are more about the concept than the form. They are usually designed for a specific site, but can be mobile, to transform how the space is viewed.
