  • 08/23/12--12:32: Really fed up with this shit

  • So as most of you know  I am attending Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design to study Illustration. I haven't even started yet, and I've already run into a shit ton of problems with them. It took me MONTHS to get financial aid stuff dealt with, despite getting everything done and sent in to them over a month ahead of time. They kept messing up what scholarships and grants I had received, so I repeatedly had to contact them to fix it. And nearly every time I contacted them about it, they'd say they would get back to me within a day and never did so I'd have to contact them again and on and on that went. We finally get that stuff squared awa

  • 08/24/12--12:38: I really don't get it...

  • So, the new thumbs. They've got everyone up in arms and complaining about how the staff should've asked users for their opinions, should listen to their users more, etc. This comes up every time a new feature comes out that some people don't like. And it really confuses me, because as far as I've seen dA admins are more active in listening to their members than any other site out there that I've been on. We have an extensive beta testing program, volunteers and admins we can talk to at any time, a help desk that actually responds to the tickets sent to them, places to make suggestions about improvements, and so much more. How is that we have

    New Mortal Instruments fanfiction! I'll be posting a chapter every week both here and on ff.net, but the chapters on ff.net will be one week ahead of the ones here.

    Anyways, I've had the idea for this story for over a year now, but no time at all to write it. I finally found time though, and I'm glad I did. I'm super happy with this story, and I think I've managed to capture the characters better then I ever have before. I also have all but the last chapter of the story written already, so I can 100% gauruntee regular updates! Okay... 99%. Shit happens. The story will be nine chapters, plus an epilogue. I'll post a new chapter every Thursday or Friday.

    As for the story, it is compliant up to City of Glass. I actually started this before the events of City of Lost Souls, but I've had the idea since before even City of Fallen Angels. I'm also pretending the end of City of Lost Souls doesn't exist... Anyways. There's also a lot of little tidbits hidden throughout the story, so be sure to keep an eye out! Some have to do with TID, some with extras from Cassie, and some with random stuff Cassie has said on twitter/tumblr/whatever.

    I'll shut up now. Hope you enjoy the first chapter!

    All characters (C) Cassie Clare

    Due to it being so hard to post chapter stories on deviantART, the rest of this story is posted on fanfiction.net here: [link]

    "I've missed date night." I grinned, reaching out and snagging Alec with my arm to pull him closer.
    He  smiled a little and settled into my side as we walked, "I have to. Well. I've missed it when it's successful." I felt his elbow jab playfully into my side.
    "Hey, I didn't know you'd be allergic to those flowers! Are you going to hold that date against me forever?"
    "Potentially. I mean, it was our first date."
    "Personally,  I don't count that as our first date. I count that little Italian Restaurant downtown as our first date because that was the first time we  went out after you came out to your parents."
    "And because you didn't nearly kill

    I get that feeling a lot. I come from a huge catholic family (Grandparents had ten kids, Grandpa had eleven siblings, Grandpa had seven siblings, you get the idea.). And our family has been in the U.S. for over 200 years, so we've got a fair amount of stories to tell. Whenever we go up to our family cabin in the Rocky Mountains it's pretty likely that stories will start getting told about when my grandpa fought in WWII and when my dad and his brothers and sisters were kids. I've always loved these stories and I love to just sit and listen. A ton of them got told this weekend and last when I was up there. Whenever I hear them though, it makes

  • 06/19/12--16:36: Falling Upside Down
  • A quick painting of my OC Ana and her boyfriend Damien who belongs to :devilovewritting26: Not 100% happy with Ana, but it's only the 2nd time I've drawn her, so maybe I'm just not used to her or something. Who knows.

    The title comes from the Rascal Flatts song "Falling Upside Down" which I was listening to while painting this, and it fits the two of them very well.

  • 06/20/12--15:08: Radom Deviant Feature

  • I've always been very fond of using the Random Deviant  button to find new artists, and I've fond a ton of awesome stuff that way. I've made a few features using it before, and I figured it was time for another! Please check out these awesome artists, they all deserve some attention for their work.

    I've had a rather shitty week for a myriad of reasons. This isn't about that though, it's about what made up for it. As you're all probably well aware, I've recently had a pretty big obsession with the band Black Veil Brides. Yeah, a lot of people don't like them for a multitude of reasons, but I do. I like them to the point of doing multiple paintings of them, and I'm working on more right now. My most recent one was a painting of Ashley Purdy, the bassist from the band:

    Well today I got a tweet from Ashley Purdy himself saying that he'd watched the video of me painting it on youtube and that he thought the painting was

  • 06/27/12--12:36: Please Help
  • Please take a moment to read this and help out the people in my home-state of Colorado who are suffering under the effects of the worst fire season we have ever had.

    As many of you know, I live in Colorado U.S.A. It's only the beginning of the fire season for us, but it's already become the worst fire season we have ever had. There are currently 12 large fires burning throughout the state. Thousands of acres have burned and thousands more people have been forced out of or lost their homes.
    Thankfully, I don't live near any of the current fires. I do, however, have a cabin in the mountains (which thankfully isn't near any fires yet, but the mountain it's on would go up in a flash if it lit) and I have a lot of friends who live in the mountains, some of whom have homes very close to several of the fires.

  • 06/28/12--20:41: New Kitty!
  • I got a new kitty! Yes, you all do need to know about this, purely because she's adorable.

    Due to the rather shitty weekend I had a couple weeks ago, I decided to get myself a cat to make up for it. (yes, I realize this makes me sound like a crazy cat lady in the making...) And today I was finally able to get down to the shelter and pick one! She's a little, three year old, black cat with beautiful bright orange eyes. I've named her Rebel after the Black Veil Brides song "Rebel Love Song." I chose to name her after a BVB song since listening to their music helped get me through said shitty weekend. Rebel is a total sweetheart, very snuggly and sweet.

    So last night there was a show on TV about these conjoined sisters who were (basically) two heads with one body, though it's a tad more complex then that. You can read more about them here if you're interested: [link] I highly recommend taking a look, they're very interesting!

    The show made me curious though. I have a couple characters who were conjoined at birth, and I wondered what life would've been like for them had they stayed conjoined rather then being separated at one year old. It was a fun concept to play with, and very challenging!

    I know that I probably got some things wrong, but overall I'm happy with the result. Please tell me what you think guys! I'd really, really love some feedback on this one!

    You can find out more about these two characters here: [link]

  • 07/10/12--12:44: Jinxx and Sammi Sketch
  • This is a picture of Jinxx, one of the guitarists in Black Veil Brides and his lovely fiance Sammi who plays keyboard and does backup vocals in My Satellite Band. I've wanted to draw these two for ages now, and I finally got around to doing it last night while Sammi was being wonderfully sweet and amusing on stickam. Finished it up this morning and I'm really happy with the result. I don't usually do sketches this detailed, but I like the effect it gives.

    So, yeah. Everyone go listen to My Satellite and BVB now. And follow these two on twitter @SammiDoll and @JinxxBVB

    I've been working on this little project for a few weeks now, though I've wanted to do it for ages!

    Now then, as I mentioned, I have included a set of files for download that can assist you in making your visual suggestions. These are all things you can find on the site on your own, however I've taken the time to put each element on a transparent background and grouped together similar ones. As someone who has made a lot of visual suggestions, I can tell you that one of the most time consuming parts of making a suggestion is finding your elements and extracting them effectively from everything else. To help alleviate this issue for myself, I went and collected my most commonly used elements and extracted them all, made them look nice and pretty, and saved them with transparent backgrounds. It has helped speed up my work flow so much. So now I'm offering them to you guys! In the download you will find:
    :bulletblack: Two blank headers, one with a sticky menu and one without.
    :bulletblack: A set of check-boxes.
    :bulletblack: A huge set of the buttons used around DA including multiple sizes of blank buttons for you to put your own text into.
    :bulletblack: A DA color scheme with the most common colors found on DA, each labeled as to where they come from.
    :bulletblack: Over 60 DA icons such as the prints icon, the gallery icon, the shop icon, etc. (These buggers are one of the hardest things to extract, due to their small size)
    :bulletblack: A blank version of the DA front page, including a fully open footer featuring the DD channel, top news, and a recent poll.
    :bulletblack: A blank main page of the forums.
    :bulletblack: A blank version of the main page of the admin area of groups.
    :bulletblack: 3 sizes of a blank page widget box.
    :bulletblack: 3 sizes of a blank page widget box in edit mode.
    :bulletblack: Two search bars
    :bulletblack: Two types of text input boxes, each in two sizes
    :bulletblack: And more to come!

    All of these elements are saved as PNGs with transparency which allows for easy use in your suggestions! If you have a suggestion for something you think would be useful to have included in this pack, please tell me and I'll be happy to include it!

    You may use these elements in ANY DA related project, it doesn't have to be a suggestion. The only rule is that you must credit me somewhere in the deviation or the description. I ask for this only so other people can find and use these resources. I'd love a link to what you do with them to, so I can see what awesomeness you come up with!

    :iconhappywaveplz: Hello everyone! This document will break down several things related to creating visual and written suggestions on deviantART! The topics we will cover are:
    What is a deviantART related suggestion?What types of suggestions are there?Where can I make a suggestion?What should I consider when making a suggestion?How do I make a visual suggestion?How do I make a written suggestion?What are some examples of good suggestions?How can I get recognition for my suggestions?What is a suggestion?A deviantART related suggestion is a visual or written representation of an idea that you believe would improve the functioning of deviantART
