this movie, omg... "Ookami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki"
watch it. It's amazing, seriously.
(image found on Tumblr: http://evangelizer.tumblr.com/post/43670310560 )
It's about werewolves, yes, but not cheesy, stupid Twilight "werewolves" or whatever... These are my new favorite type of werewolves, and I'll probably never think of werewolves as vicious bad-guys ever again.
This was a beautiful story of a mother and her two children. I loved the story, really did. I even sort of started wanting to have kids on my own as well I mean, Ami and Yuki were so sweet, and funny, and realistic - personality and behavior wise.
And their mother was a fantastic character. I really, really liked how she was portrayed.
I could go on about how much I just loved this movie.. But I'll shut up and just recommend it to you all instead.
Do yourself a favor, and watch this incredible movie
To all you aspiring artistsI just felt like giving a little motivational speech, based on some questions and feedback I've gotten from young, aspiring artists.
Some of you say you look at my art and get inspired, and I just love hearing that because that's just what I want; to be able to inspire! It also inspires be back, because I know very well how it's like to work your butt off and not feeling you're getting anywhere. And I can relate when some of you say you actually lose all motivation when you see my work (or others' work, of course), because you feel you could never reach that same "level". I was there too, I've felt just like you guys! I have also had the nagging feeling that my art might not be good enough, but those thoughts are all stupid. Yeah, they are. I'll be rude enough to say that right now.
Art can be very frustrating in your "growth period", if I can call it that. And while being your own worst critic can help you grow, it can also tear you down and destroy everything called 'motivation'. So
Oh holy wow! :DRemember the wolf tattoo I drew that I wanted to get tattooed on my chest?
Well, I got an appointment with this amazing tattoo artist from Iceland, which is on June 6th. I wanted him to draw my wolf tattoo in his own style, and today he messaged me with a rough sketch of his version. And oh my God, you guys! It looks incredible! I wish I could show you, but I won't because I don't have the right to post someone else's artwork on my page and stuff, plus I want to let you guys wait until I've gotten it tattooed on me But the wings, they looked so realistic and so soft! And the wolf looked so kind and badass at the same time, and the details were just mind blowing! and holy wow, I seriously can't wait till June 6th
I love his version of the tattoo, and I'm very happy he could re-design it for me
He's a super-skilled artist, so I'm truly grateful he has the time to tattoo me. This tattoo is going to be so beautiful, I just know it! I'm gonna wear it so proudly,
Rescue InkI found out about these people through a Tumblr post; They're tough, tattooed bikers who fight against animal abuse and neglect. In other words: they're heroes.
I could say a lot more about them, but I think you should check out their website and see for yourself:
I just made a donation, and I wanted to write this journal to encourage other people to make donations too - if you can, and want to Every single dollar helps
There are plenty of animal rescuers or animal shelters you can donate to, and they need all the help they can get as well. Donate to the shelter or rescuers that you feel you want to support
I personally felt like donating to these people, because I know they're not afraid of taking action against abusers, and they're educating people to be nice to animals as well, AND they're rehabilitating and rescuing animals, so pretty much everything I learned about them made me want to help out and show my support.
I'm thinking of doing some c
Have you tried this?I've been fiddling around with Realtek HD Audio Manager on my computer (it's pretty standard on most Windows computers, I think. At least on Windows 7), and I found it quite fun to go to the "Karaoke" option, and set it to minus four ( -4 ) and then turn on a song with a female singer. It turns the female voice into a rather cool male voice!
Songs like "Untouched" by The Veronicas, for instance, became quite cool with that male voice
It works on pretty much any song with a female singer, so I recommend trying it out, just for fun
names for the new characterRemember this new character that I drew recently?
Without asking, a lot of you came up with loads of neat name suggestions for her, some even suggested background stories for her! And I think that you guys are all just amazing for wanting to help like that
I've decided on using her in my Spike story, and as a matter of fact I'm writing a scene about her right now...! I'll try not to spoil much, but she's one of Spike's classmates, who causes some trouble for Sam. She's not an evil character though, but she's a little... um.... complicated? I really don't want to spoil anything just yet. She's a character you might hate at first, but when you get to know her you'll see that her actions have reasons. That's all I'll say about her right now.
BUT - what I'm writing this journal entry for, is that out of the names you've suggested, I've found a name that I absolutely loved. It was, to me, perfect for her! And it was cool to see that some of you even v
SPIKE updatesJust thought I'd share with you guys some updates on the progress of finishing my "SPIKE" novel.
A lot of people have asked me how it's going, when it will be published and stuff. I really appreciate getting asked these things because it shows that people are actually interested in my writings, and that it just such a great feeling
I've got two news for you guys today though: one bad news and one good news. Let's start with the bad news.
I haven't finished writing SPIKE yet.
And I honestly don't know when it will be finished - which oddly enough brings us to the good news:
I've made a new, major decision in the SPIKE story that I think a lot of you will be happy to hear. As usual I don't want to spoil too much, but there is a part in the story where Spike and Sam are separated from each other for quite a long while. At first I was planning on only writing from Spike's point of view, like, what he's experiencing during this separation period. I figured that since he's the main cha
SPIKE updates - nov2013Yesh, it's about time I gave you guys an update on the progress of my novel, "SPIKE".
I've gotten a lot of notes and comments asking when the book will be finished, how far I've come in the writing process, or how many chapters there are so far, and so forth... And I love getting questions like that, because that means people are interested in my work, many of which say they even love my work, and.. just wow, I mean, I'm completely honest when I say that it means a whole lot to me. And I'm serious when I say that without the support from you guys (you all know who you are <3 ), I would never have bothered continuing the SPIKE story. I would probably just have posted chapter 0, deleted it, and stuffed it all in a drawer and possibly even given up on the whole story-teller dream. Feedback is very important to me, which sounds very selfish, I know, but I used to be incredibly insecure of myself and everything I did. I had this dream of becoming a cartoonist to have my stories told, and
did you know...Did you know Saunders has his own fan club?
HaloGamesFan and FoxeeLaLa made one for him, which to me was a really cool surprise..! It's very flattering to see my character getting so much love, and even a fan club, so that's really cool
And Saunders himself would probably be very surprised too to know about it ;D I bet he'd be all "what, a FAN CLUB, for ME?? what, why me? I'm not special... am I? Well, it's very nice of them anyways, that's for sure.. *tries to hide that he's blushing* "
here's the link to the fan club, if anyone wants to join

Just an idea o3o
Just throwing out an idea, and wondering if you guys think this might sound like something worth doing.
But I've been thinking of doing two things, one is a get what you pay for commission. Like, you give me any amount, (at least $1) and I draw you something. Like, it could be a fun little chibi drawing, or a picture I make in photoshop, or even just an icon or journal doll, or maybe even two pictures. o3o
I think it would be a fun way for me to completely experiment and draw whatever type of picture I please. <: So I would have complete control of what kind of picture I'm making, aside from the character.
My next idea would be for plushies. I was thinking I would charge maybe $25, you give me the character you want, and I make whatever type of plush I like.
Slightly hard to explain this one, ahh. X'D
But you'll pay for the plush having no idea what it will come out like and I make literally whatever I want. It could b
'Slendermaid': now a thing.Photos taken within the Fukushima exclusion zone.
Witnesses describe it as an oily-black creature with either very stunted legs or an actual fish-tail. It strides around on abnormally long arms.

Ask Me ArtTradeASK ME ART TRADE
Now you can ask me for the Art Trade ,it's been a long time since I do the last art trade ,hope I still know how to do one = = . You can ask me if you want to do one , just leave one comment down below and give me the link of which character you want me to draw ,if I have a interest to draw your character I will note you .
I will judge who I want to do art trade with and what kind of art form would be made , I won't guarantee I will choose you to do the art trade so please don't fell bad if I don't choose you .
Fiction.How redundant is it pointing out these following statements?
There's no such thing as a gigantic mechanical robot fighting off alien monsters. There has never been a report of a man being bitten by a radioactive spider and becoming a hero. You can't summon a mini-tornado at your own beck-n-call, don't matter how much into the occult you are. The odds of a young male teenager having a harem of sexy girls at his every turn is nil. There aren't bipeds of animals that are supposed to be quadrupeds flying spaceships in the galaxy above us. You can't legally hunt and catch thousands of different animals and use them to protect you from other animals and people in a sports-like venue. You can't eat a flower and ignite fire from your hands.
I can go on and on... this journal is probably being expressed because of recent built-up distaste for people bullying others because of what they like when it comes to fiction.
Just to reestablish what it even means, here it is, straight
How to interview a politician.A tiny snippet from Jeremy Paxman's interview with Silvio Berlusconi.
Some might not know who Berlusconi is: he's a media tycoon, 3 time Prime Minister of Italy and is generally regarded as the face of political vice and corruption in Europe.
Many won't know who Paxman is: he's the brick that the BBC throw at people like Berlusconi. His questions being so blunt that it's nigh on impossible to wriggle out of answering them without looking more of a prat than you did at the start.
I'm pretty sure that Paxman also hates that fact that you, whoever you are, share the same planet as him:
These aren't outtakes. This stuff airs
eggiesNot sure if you guys are even interested in these, but I've drawn on eggs again:
This is something I used to do a lot back when I was more active on my old nocturnalMoTH account. I've kinda missed doing this.. But, yeah, if you wanna see more of these little fellows, head over to my nocturnalMoTH gallery :3 there's a gallery folder there called "eggs and pills" with more of this madness...
The BeginningHe told them, of course. He told those idiots everything, the whole damn story, including the blunder he'd made, and its consequences. Looking back on it later, he realized he had probably been in shock the whole time. It made sense, anyone would have been.
Soph was about twenty years old, and he'd been that way for a couple of years already, ever since the Hoarde had started attacking humanity from the past. Every day that passed, they ate at another day in the past. It sickened him. Those creatures had absolutely no regard for proper time and causality protocols.
It didn't seem to affect anyone else that way, though.
The Hoarde was the result of a human creation, of course, like everything bad in the world, though no one else knew about them. Then again, no one else had undiluted access to the power of creation. Even he didn't know much about the Hoarde, only that they appeared through some tear in The Fabric of The World and started killing people off. They appeared at some point in
