  • 03/11/12--21:18: A roundup of suggestions

  • What is this madness?
    So, :devkatara-alchemist: what is this madness you have in your journal? Well, it has to do with the site updates posted over on :devhq:. There's so many great suggestions posted in the comments of those journals, but they quickly get pushed down and lost among all the other feedback. I think these suggestions need to and deserve to be seen. So I decided to go through all the comments posted up to this point on the most recent site update and organize them into a nice, neat format.

    Be sure to watch :devhq: to see the future site updates! And take the time to at least glance through the suggestions given in the comments

  • 03/12/12--19:32: My Day Just Got Made

  • So I just got a note (and an e-mail :XD:) from :devHeidi: asking if I wanted to apply for a job in the Product Marketing department of deviantART! Sadly, I can't take the job since I can't move to California right now because of college, but just to have :devHeidi: note me and ask me to consider applying made my day.

    I've been a member of this site for five years now (That makes me feel old...XD ) and I love this community so much. Yes, it has its flaws, just like any place real or on the internet, but there's so many amazing things that make it worth it. I've grown so much because of this site, as an artist and as a person. I know I wouldn'

    So I go to check the mail today, and I find a package from DA. I didn't order anything, but DA has done a good job of surprising me over the past week in wonderful ways. Open it up, and what's inside? A wonderful little present from my wishlist, the dA artist apron. No clue what-so-ever who sent it though! I'd love it if the person who did told me, I'd like to say thanks!

    Whoever it was, I really appreciate it. The random little gift made my day. :hug:

  • 03/16/12--20:58: Wishlist Suggestion
  • So today I opened my mail to find that some unknown person had bought me something off my wishlist! It made me very happy, but it also made me remember I had a wishlist. :giggle: So I went on to update it, and I found it to be severely lacking in features.

    So here we go, my ideas:
    :bulletblack: A sidebar where you can have your preferences including devwear sizes and print sizes listed. The pencil Icon on this would allow you to edit, and would only be visible upon hovering. I just put it there to show that it would be there.

    :bulletblack: Being able to remove deviations from the wishlist easily using a system similar to the one used to move deviations to folders in your gallery. This would allow you to easily remove things, including things from the devwear shop that can't be removed once they're out of stock for whatever reason.

    :bulletblack: Being able to go straight to the deviation the print is of using a system similar to the one used to move deviations to folders in your gallery. As it is now, if you click the icon you are taken to the print rather then the deviation.

    :bulletblack: Being able to mark which prints you want the most using a system similar to the one used to move deviations to folders in your gallery. When you mark a print as most wanted, a little yellow badge will appear in the top right corner (or something along these lines).

    Feedback is wonderful!

  • 03/21/12--20:06: Gone Until April

  • On Friday morning I leave for France and Spain with :devAkiraShikigami: and :devLectorValdesh: for a week. We will, in theory, be back on my 18th b-day (April Fools Day. :XD:). I won't have any computer access while I'm gone, but I promise to check all of my messages as soon as I get back. If you guys have something important to talk to me about it's probably best to send me a note as I'll be checking those first.

    Gonna miss you guys! :hug:

  • 03/22/12--17:16: A Muro for Writers
  • Another suggestion before I leave for Europe for a week.

    Tell me what you think guys, I love feedback! Is there something you really like, tell me. If there's something you don't like, tell me. If there's something you think should be added, tell me.

  • 04/02/12--12:58: I'm back!...kinda.

  • So yes, I'm back from Europe now! I'd rather still be there though. :XD: The trip was awesome and I'll be posting a lot of photos once I sort though them all.

    I'd ramble about all the things I did on the trip, but I'm pretty sure that not many of you actually care. :XD: So I'll just post little blurbs on the photos when I post them. Or you can ask. Up to you.

    It may be a little bit before I actually get back to being active again though. I'm on the last leg of my senior year, so things are a little crazy. I've got a ton of stuff to take care of and do and Easter is coming soon which means family time please shoot me now so I've got to fit t

  • 04/13/12--20:32: Shitastic Day

  • I know I don't really complain in my journal much anymore, but damnit, I'm pissed. This year I took a class called senior projects. It's a tech based design class where you pitch a project (such as designing an airport, or a new type of cell phone, etc) and you then spend the entire year creating that project. You can work alone or with a group of your choosing. I decided at the beginning of the year to work with a good friend of mine we'll call Z. Our project was designing a compact set of furniture that could all be folded up and fit into small box. Things have gone pretty good all year, we got a good design, bought the stuff we needed to b

  • 04/14/12--18:58: New Deviation Pages
  • In the weekly site updates posted on #hq there's a lot of suggestions tossed around for changing the layout of deviation pages. Some of them are really good, but there's people worried about pages getting to crowded and distracting from the artwork. So I designed this mock-up of the most popular ideas and tried to do it in a way that didn't actually add very much, only moved around what was already there.

    Though, while making this mock-up I realized how crowded deviation pages are already, and it is kind of distracting when you think about it. I've got some ideas on how to fix this, but I'd love to hear your ideas as well so please comment with how you think deviation pages could be stripped down to a more simple form!

    Please tell me what you think guys! What do you like? What do you not like? What do you think could be improved? Tell me!

  • 04/14/12--22:07: Glenwood Characters
  • A bunch of sketches I've had sitting around of ~ilovewriting26 and I's characters, all of whom live in Glenwood Springs Colorado.

    We have Nishit and Micah, who are dating/married (depending on the timeline), their triplet sons Derek, Dylan, and Damien with their significant others, and Enzio and Kalaghata who are close friends with them.

    Nishit, Kala, Jared, Ana (C) Me
    Derek, Dylan, Damien, Enzio, Jared, Micah (C) Cheryl

    Edit: yes, I realize I spelled "Micah" wrong in the sketch... :XD:

  • 04/19/12--18:39: Sketches
  • Some more sketches. I've been in a very creative mood lately.

    The sketch of Nishit was done because I wanted to play with how he would look around the time he has grandkids. So I aged him up a little.

    The sketch of Alec I'm semi-happy with, but it's my first time drawing him so it might just be because I'm not used to him. Who knows.

    Ephrem was originally supposed to be pouting, but then he ended up grinning. :XD:

    As for the little comic, here's the text if you can't read it:
    "So, let me get this straight. Your dad is a triplet, you and your brothers are triplets, and now your brother's girlfriend is pregnant with triplets? ... You guys must have some really weird sperm."
    ~ilovewriting26 and I recently played with aging her characters Derek, Damien and Dylan up to their mid-twenties and having Damien's wife/fiance/something be pregant. This was Derek's husband/fiance/somethings reaction to the announcement.

    Feel free to leave feedback!

  • 07/20/12--09:49: I'm Alright

  • I just wanted to take a minute to let every one know I'm alright, despite the events that shook my town last night. For those that don't know, a 24 year old man named James Holmes walked into the midnight premier of "Batman" last night and opened fire, killing 12 people and injuring 50. The theater where this occurred is right down the road from my house, we had emergency officials going by all night long. Several people who I went to High School with were in the theater, some of them shot but none killed. Last I heard at least two people I knew had been shot, one to the point of needing surgery. I have gotten multiple calls today, as well as

  • 07/21/12--14:10: I've done it!

  • I have brought my Black Veil Brides obsession to a whole new level! As of this morning I have official permission to open up a store to sell my BVB t-shirt designs!!!!!!!! I've been dancing around like a mad woman all morning, I've been working on setting this up for several months. These are the designs I will be selling:

    :bigthumb301125018:
    20% of the profits will be donated to the victims of the Aurora Colorado Theater shooting and/or the red cross. This was the agreement I reached with the band, and I am more than happy with it.

    Purchase the shirts here: http://kataraalchemiststore.wix.com/makeup-minimalism#!

  • 07/22/12--22:23: Must. Get. Out.

  • I have come to the decision that I really need to get my own place to live, away from my mother. Don't get me wrong, I really don't have that much of a problem with my mother, but if we keep living together one of us is going to kill the other. Slowly.
    I've been thinking about doing this for awhile, but I was wary because of how expensive college is going to be. But I've already managed to cover about half of my total college tuition (about $40,000 is covered right now) with just grants and school based scholarships. Because of that, I've decided that I can manage paying for my own places as long as I have a roommate. So I called up my best

  • 06/05/12--17:01: Shark Attack
  • So here's the story of how my character Zip got attacked by a shark. Been meaning to write it for ages...:XD:

    I was planning on having Zip catch a couple waves before he got bit, but then I realized that I have zero knowledge of surfing aside from the term "duck-diving" and I gave up this time around. I'll rent some surfer movies before I try writing about him again. :XD:

    Also, his brother Alan is about 22 in this story.

    Tell me what you think please!



    All characters (C) Me

    “I’m going surfing, Alan!” I shouted at my brother as I wiggled my way out the door with my board, attempting to only open it wide enough that our dog, Big Ben, couldn’t follow me out. It wasn’t that hard, given the aptitude of his name.
    I jogged out into the cool surf behind our California beach home, duck-diving under a small wave and came up paddling farther into the ocean. It wasn’t the best day for big waves, but there were still a few moderately sized ones coming in according to the online surfing report. I sat up, scanning the horizon, fingers trailing in the water lapping at my board. I just h

  • Anyone who's seen the pictures of Black Veil Brides from Download 2012 will know that they've got a new look. A very sexy, grungy, punk look. And I love it. So I'm going to do a series of paintings, one of each of the members, with their new grungy look. (I'm also making it a goal to one day get each of them to sign their picture. XD)

    Anyways. This was a ton of fun to make and I did it in around 12ish hours in two sessions. You can watch the entire, compiled, livestream session, here: [link] . Overall I'm really happy with it, especially his bass (which was about 15 layers total to get all the graphics on it layered correctly). I know the quote isn't the best style wise, I'm still trying to get the hang of typography type stuff.

    Also, thanks to @SaraLynnBVB for hanging with me the past couple days while I worked on this!

    Comments/Critiques are welcomed and wanted!
