I got called out!

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 1, 2015, 6:44 PM
In a good way, of course.

For context:

I was playing Halo 4 earlier today, and my favorite thing to do is drive the vehicles, namely the Warthog. You might even consider me somewhat good at it (whenever I get the set-up ready to record my games, I'll prove it). So anyway, I was driving, and I had a random player as my gunner, who was actually pretty good. He was able to take out anyone who happened to present themselves as a threat, and relatively quickly, which was amazing for the vehicle I was driving, because the gun is ridiculously hard to aim. Imagine trying to aim a super powerful, heavy sniper rifle while on a swivel. Also it fires once every three seconds.

After the game, I netted the guy 20 kills, and so I congratulated him. I love giving credit to players when they deserve it, and I felt this guy deserved it. He messaged me afterward saying how he thought I was a great driver, and afterward messaged me saying he called me out on YouTube! I love getting positive feedback in return whenever I acknowledge players, but I never expected my own personal shoutout video on YouTube! This guy made my week, and it was an honor to play with him.

I'm glad to see players like him are still around, especially in the competitive online FPS arena.  :happybounce:

Selling a tablet! Need cash for Colossalcon!

Journal Entry: Sun May 17, 2015, 3:56 PM
Hey-a ladies! I'm in need of some extra money for a convention coming up in early June, and I've got a perfectly good tablet pen I'd like to get rid of. Was only used once or twice (both were attempts to learn to use it, and both were massive failures  I am a dummy! ), so it's in relatively great condition. The box is a tad torn, but that's how it was when I got it myself. It still has the launch disk and charger. Lost the pen but I'm still looking for it (I know it's in my room, that much is true). My price is $150.

If anyone wishes to purchase it, please let me know in a note (if you request, I will send photos via note too)! I'll be sure to have it shipped by June 1st. Thank you very much!

Random Stuff I Found #8! GOIN' TO COLOSSALCON!

Journal Entry: Mon May 4, 2015, 6:19 PM
It's that time of the 2 weeks, everybrosef! Time to showcase some of the stuff I found all over DeviantArt and elsewhere around the beautiful world that is the Interwebz.

But before I get to that, I wanna announce that I'll be headed to Colossalcon this June! If any of you lovely freaks are going up to Sandusky for it, I hope to see you there! I'll be attending all four days, but I (may) cosplay just Friday and Saturday. I'm dressing as Zeref from Fairy Tail (yes, even with that insane hair-do), so I should be pretty simple to find. I not only plan to set up a table at the Craft Fair on Thursday, I will also be attending the Fairy Tail photoshoot taking place that Friday, so if you, for some insane reason, wanna meet me in person, please don't hesitate to say hi! I'm always willing to meet a new face! I promise I won't kill you with any magic (maybe~ EVIL Laughter!)

So anyway, onward to art!

-Artists to Watch-

An anime-style artist, though this guys art style pays more homage to the older anime style, seen in such anime as Cowboy Bebop, Akira, Ghost in the Shell, and Neon Genesis Evangelion. Which, in my opinion, is far more superior to today's cutesy, bubbly style. While each style works well for their respective anime, I'd love it if anime artists look back to these gems of the past and work with it more. Eyeball's art style pays great homage to this art-style.
Smoke Screens by EyeballEarthMegacity C by EyeballEarth

A fresh face on DeviantArt, she does poetry and other small writings. Her stuff's pretty good as it is now; she seems to have a bit of a variety in her topics, though more tend to lean toward darker subject matter. Not just the "horror" kind of dark, but sadness, sorrow, and worry. Not many people tend to do that, but she's working well with it so far.
Prey being huntedBreath
He will catch you if you scream
Don't cry
Get your self together
The closet
I'll hide there
Funny this little pink sweater
I wore this when I met him
god damn why did I download that app?!
Fuck, he's going to get me
I can hear his breathing
Heavy as if he is a killer in a b movie
Please call cut
please let this be a bad dream
No No please
Don't open the door
Never have a seen a smile so filled with evil
His smile drives fear in me as if I am Ripley facing down a xenomorph
His hands tighten around my shirt
dragging me as if I am a small child, in trouble for trying to take a candy bar
The knife glimmers in the moonlight as if it is a diamond
So cold
red is dripping down
blackness is enveloping me
Why did I have to die?
Loving while in a Long distance relationship107 miles
2 hours away
Once a month visits
48 hours together.
Hundreds of kisses fill those hours
Clinging onto him for dear life
lying my head on his chest just to hear his heartbeat as steady as the beating drum
it's pace increasing when I say I love you
seeing his hands move
pen in hand, transforming an ordinary blank paper into a beautiful work of art
The hours are ticking
tick tock
One last kiss
One last hug
One last I love you while feeling his arms around my body
Attempting to convince him to stay
Saying Sailor Venus is better when we know that Sailor Mars is
Anything to get him to stay for one more day
A text when he gets home
letting me know he is safe
Skype replacing hand holding
Phone calls replacing a hug
Texts replacing his lips
His cologne replacing cuddling
A panda replacing his heart beat
A love does conquer distance
One day we will wake up
next to each other
seeing those sleepy hazel eyes
wake up and smile
Getting out of our warm bed on a cold winters day
to curl up on

On the subject of darker subject matter, this artist makes her home in the shadows, bending and contorting them into great works of art through the wand that is her pencil. To me, it appears as if though Tim Burton was her driving source of inspiration, but she's melded the style so much that it's clearly her own thing. Bonus points for making images that actually make you sit back and think a little bit too.

On the subject of cons...
If anyone hopes to eventually get into Artist Alley, like me, here is a great beginner's guide I found that'll help with subjects ranging from pricing to assembling your table and selling merch to presentation.
Handy-dandy guide on making a comic!
Straight from one of the most well-renowned comic publishers, Dark Horse Comics, there's an incredible assortment of material to use here. They give you samples directly from actual comics, giving you scripts, pencil sketches, inks, to full color pages. A must-read for aspiring comic writers and artists, LIKE ME!

-Song You Should Listen To!-

So I'm gonna drop a bomb on you right here; I actually started listening to something aside from rock, metal, or game soundtrack-related for once in my life. You'll never guess what, so I'll just tell you right now. Vocaloid. Yep. I actually got into the stuff, first remembering about it after watching a guy play through a visual novel in which the reader dates Miku Hatsune. And it was actually thoroughly enjoyable; I actually cried during a segment of it, 'cause it was so nice. And so, I scanned all over Spotify and Youtube for different songs, and even some of my computer buddies (one of which who has an enormous folder full of downloaded songs). I even have a favorite vocaloid; Luka Megurine. Here's my favorite song of everything I found under the genre, which is sung by her.
Kabushiki Gaisha Megurine Suisan Shaka - IOSYS

WHELP, that's it for this feature, ladies! See you lovely freaks in the next one!
