As many of you know (being my watchers and all), I do both digital art and photography. I have also now added in adoptables!! Should I split my account into two separate accounts and move my photography to a different account? I have seen others do this and be very successful. So I want to know, what do you watch me for? If I did split my account, I think the most logical move is to have a separate photography account. Or do you all not mind the giant landslides of photographs that get submitted out of nowhere??? This topic is very important to me. My friend's account is now basically vacant and she said I could use it if I wanted (when I mentioned this idea to her). So, should I? How many of you would it affect? Would those that watch for digital art be happier? Would it be better for those that just watch me for photography? I'd like to know.
I have a folder specifically dedicated to works I would love a critique on. For those of you out there who give critiques, I will trade a critique for a critique! Please visit this folder to see all the works I want a critique on. Or pick one or two from these three that I want a critique on "right now" ...
I am back at work! WOOT WOOT! This means that (1) I can accept money again because I am not long on my short term disability and FMLA and (2) I will have time during my breaks to sketch, line and color! YAY! Right now I am not doing slots - commissions are wide open at this time. Please see this journal for more information, or you can also send me a note and ask me questions.
I joined an awesome Secret Santa event hosted by the lovely =Re-Pyper. I actually got Pyper so did not submit until yesterday (the due date) - I felt it was justified since she didn't get to be surprised by WHO drew her senshi, so I made her wait until the last day lol. *GabiStar was my Secret Santa and did an amazing piece featuring my Sailor Oracle! Check both out - my gift to Pyper and Gabi's gift to me!
I might join another Secret Santa or two. If you know of any that are going on, just please let me know. If there is a newer artist or an artist without many watchers holding one needing participants, please let me know so I can advertise AND join it XD I always love to help a newer member with one of their first projects!
Yes, as usual, I am playing Pokemon (again). I have both X and Y. I am playing X and am self-trading through Y with myself and trading with my friend Hisa who also plays (is playing Y). I have had to do a restart once already (and it won't happen again) because I boneheaded my Kanto starter. I thought the black Mega Charizard was from Pokemon Y. WRONG! So I restarted, got all 3 Kalos starters, and then chose the correct Kanto pokemon this time. Despite the setback, I have already passed my friend in the game (again) lol. Also, I must state that I typically only play the fire starters! However, I have a love for Froakie! Weird, right?
The graphics on this game are fantastic... and the abilitiy to move in all 8 directions (plus rollerskating) is awesome! I love watching the pokemon attack now (used to rape the A button to get thru battles and stuff before). And the new FAIRY type is epic thus far! I must admit, Flabebe wasn't the greatest introduction to the fairy type but has turned out to be an asset on my team XD And of course, I do have all 3 starters. All three are really good although Fenniken is no longer in my party as I have Charmeleon as my fire pokemon (MUST HAVE BLACK MEGA CHARIZARD!!!). I also have Flabebe (duh), Frogadier, Quilladin, Vivillon and Fletchinder. I don't remember who is in Hisa's party besides (meh) Squirtle. She is more the type to swap out pokemon constantly, spend tons of time leveling a new party, testing said party, and then repeating lol (which is how I always get so far ahead of her). I get my final team early on and play until they are level 100. My team really won't change much until I beat the game... then I will go and play with the other pokemon (at least the other pokemon Hisa says are worthwhile - she's my pokedex!).
As is normal, I am a girl. I picked the pretty dark skinned one with the black hair *swoon* ... I have since cut her hair in Lumiose City, but she is very unstylish right now lol. I am fascinated (and utterly stalled) by the ability to create my own PR videos. So much fun! If you haven't done that and have been through Lumiose City, you need to go back because you are seriously missing out! I just wish I could explore the rest of the city at this stage of the game...
The first badge was painfully easy to get. Even if you don't start with Fennekin, you have access to a bird pokemon that evolves pretty quickly into a dual fire/flying type. Then you have access to Pidgey too plus Farfetch'd and a new fire type pokemon before getting to the first gym full of dainty adorable bug pokemon. And speaking of bug pokemon - those are historically my favorite pokemon type, and Kalos is no different. Vivillon will probably never leave my party! I so want a Vivillon of every wing variety, so if you have a Vivillon that does NOT have the modern wings of the USA, please let me know what you want in trade for it. Do remember that I am playing X but have a baby and full time job to think about so will not be super far into the game like some people with a little more time to play.
All-in-all, I am enjoying the heck out of the Kalos region! I just wish I had more time to play. Between work and Emma, I really only play at night when Emma is asleep if I don't have any work to do or commissions to work on lol.
