Howdy howdy GDC! It's been a minute since I've been here but I come with exciting news!
This year is my fifth year participating in Extra Life! If you don't know what that is, it is a gamer driven community raising donations for the Children's Miracle Network, benefiting the Children's Hospitals across the US. I have a goal of 250$ this and we just crossed 100$! It's a really great cause to be a part of if you're interested, and there are two wonderful opportunities available for donors!
Hello all! I'll keep this short and sweet -
Tomorrow is the Extra Life game day! This is my fourth year participating and I am so excited! I'll be playing video games for a solid 24 hours to raise donations for the Children's Hospital of Denver, Colorado. I'd seriously appreciate anything you can give! If you can only give 5$, then perfect! Everything helps!
Perhaps this is a dorky request, but I figure since we're all music enthusiasts here, why not?
The composer of the first three Tomb Raider games is hosting a Kickstarter project to revamp the soundtrack with a full orchestra, to be recorded at Abbey Road studios in London. I wrote up a summary regarding the project over on the Tomb Raider Deviantart page I admin if anyone's interested in more details: http://tombraiders.deviantart.com/journal/The-Tomb-Raider-Suite-News-686956563
It's been a long time since I wrote a blog last, but this feels like a good time to do so. So much exciting stuff has been happening in the past week aghh I have to share it with y'all. Because, y'know, you're all like a second family to me.
Firstly, my work was chosen to be the official logo for this years County Fair in my town. It features the American Eclipse (coming August 21st) and our town is right on the line where the moon and sun will be crossing paths, for the perfect viewing e
Last night was like any other night - I stayed up later than I should working on a drawing, then I played The Last of Us. Well, sometime around 11:30, I decided to head downstairs and get a glass of water. Well, I took a tad too long and turned around to discover my Dad had gotten up to put more pellets in the wood stove. Well, I didnt want to scare the shit out of him by making my presence known since he's jumpy and clearly wouldn't be expecting to see anyone in the dark kitchen, because me and
So this all started in a weird way, and to quickly summarize "Roger's" evolution, here's how he came to be:
My 4-H district was having a contest to draw a logo for next years's county fair, themed around the 2017 eclipse. Well, while working on that, I got bored and doodled some aliens, and Roger was the most amusing of the bunch. The little fellow was creepy and charming enough that me and my Mom formed a private joke about adventures he could go on and messes to get himself into. I refine
Aloha GDC brethren!
Tis time for me to start my my fundraising efforts for the 2016 Extra Life campaign!
To summarize, Extra Life is a charity event, in which you play video games for 24 hours to raise funds for the Children's Hospital of your choice. I play for the Children's Hospital of Denver, Colorado, as I know some kids who go there, including two kids I used to babysit who go there for diabetes check ups. I love doing volunteer work, and I love games, so this event is really
First of all - OH MY GOOSHNESS IT'S HERE.
I figure it's better for me to vent all my excitement and nostalgia here, because I know I load up my comments with all kinds of it and someone out there has to read it, so instead, I'm organizing my thoughts before I flip the fuck out.
It was October somthin' 2010 when I heard my first Green Day song. I remember that night clearly, considering how long ago it was. At the time, I shared a room with my older sister, younger brother, and her bo
First off, I really can't form a coherent sentence about it that isn't a mass of curses and fangirl crying, and different words describing how 'beautiful' it is. I'm trying to organize my thoughts in a way that I understand, because right now it's all gibberish.
Waking from a messed up nightmare, first thing this morning, still in a hazy state, I logged onto Facebook this morning to see Green Day had shared the video for those who didn't have a nice, loving radio station to play it. (Pretty
This is a really random story but it kind of freaks me out how weird it is, so here goes. So, to start this off, I'm just going to say, I write fanfiction. I have for three years, but it's not that smut shit because I figure I can write something kinda worth while and it doesn't have have all that crap in it. Anyways, I wrote a BVB fanfiction on the afterlife and suicide (All for the sake of experiment and reaching out to people) and all of that and have been posting it to this creative writing
DO YOU WANT TO PLAY GAMES FOR 24 HOURS?! Whhhoooooooooooooooooo wants to participate in an awesome campaign for the children's hospital of your choice?

Maybe it's for the best that GDC was down, I never would have completed my projects for county fair. Here they are Pain in the butt, should I add? I'll post additional artwork in my art thread, but I'm going to drop this here. I drew it exclusively for the auction. Basically a visual middle finger to the flag burners, social media brats and the ones who disrespect our veterans. They seem to forget that they're only allowed to burn that flag and bitch about hating the US because those soldier
You're here... But you're not.
I'm lost, caught up in what should be happening.
But isn't, because a few wrong words.
I probably chased you away
With words I tried so hard not to say
My dreams haunted me with a recurring story
Yelling at me to yell at you.
I couldn't escape it, now I'm wrong.
More pictures clog up my newsfeed
praying it's enough to numb the distance
I want to say it's your fault...
But it kind of is, kind of not.
It's his. He tricked you and you left without anoth
Hey guys, I normally would never ask it, but...
Do you guys remember the band 'Kut U Up' from the Pop Disaster tour and more noteably from 'Riding in Vans with Boys?'
On Facebook, they shared this update: https://www.facebook.com/KutUup/posts/850604605020835?ref=notif¬if_t=notify_me
Micah and Brooke Mattson had their newborn daughter on the 13th of May, and she is currently facing difficulties such as excess fluid on her brain. She is undergoing surgery and is currently hangin
Sorry, I did not get any pictures, but I'll be sure to post them when I get 'em home!
I've already written the results twice on two other pages, so... I'll copy and paste what I put on facebook.
"Us" (The massive Walking Dead drawing) it did not place, according to the judge, it lacked in emotional attachment to someone who had not seen TWD. Yet, it represented very well what I was going for. He had no advice on what to improve on, just additional advice on how to bring out the personalit
Thanks to everyone who guided me through the framing process! Unfortunately, the one picture I chose to not mat and frame on my own, suffered from water damage upon arriving home... It's fixable, thank God, but still... Anyways, here they are. I wrote a longer blog on it, then GDC randomly refreshed and I lost it all and auto save didn't restore what I needed to so, so whatever, I'll re-write a short little paragraph on it.
I planned to do something a little flashier than this, like a balloon gif or something, but now I'm lying in my bedroom listening to 30 Seconds to Mars, watching the Walking Dead and wasting time.
So... As of today, two years ago, I was that poor sap on the new members tab at the bottom of the page. I wrote my introductory and that was it for about nine months, when I made my return in December. I was spending the night at my sister's house, but we got snowed in so I ended up staying the wh
So I decided to get both the Hayley Williams drawing and the Danai Gurira drawing professionally framed. And I'm going with matting, or double matting, it's undecided yet.
Judging from the photos below, which one (or two) matting colors do you think would compliment them?
A. Danai Gurira
B. Hayley Williams
See, I can't decide. Maybe a bright color, or a dull color? Hmm... Also, they're going to an art show. And for your advice, you'll get to see the finished product either
Before I dive any further into this blog, I'll drop this here.
Everyone ages differently. Some people, they're not creative. They go by the years, they're very precise, they don't forget their ages. Other people, grow and age, by the people they surround themselves with. Example: You surround yourself with druggies, you'll grow to react much the same as them, rather or not you ever did the damn drug. You'll be paranoid as hell, incapable of trusting anyone. But you'll probably f
Small bit of my wip story
Small bit of story entitled It's Been So Long (skip it if you're not into horror stories )
Horror stories, I think, kick off with a 300 word preface that leaps straight for the best part in the story just to grab the reader's attention. It's easier, I guess, to invest a reader straight away, instead of doing it the old-fashioned way with a slow building of tension throughout the story until we come to a mysterious point in the plotline, that makes you eager t
The Middle - Lyrics
Here we go
Approaching the days
Breathe, close your eyes...
And let it die again
It's ok, you know
Let yourself go...
Become a creature no one knows...
No one understands what you've seen
No one wants to
Because God knows I don't
Let them go
Forget for a spell
Breathe in the stars
And die just a little...
Let them go...
Let them be free
It isn't nice to lock them away...
Forget me for a bit as well...
Approaching those days...
When every wall I
Ok, I'm usually pretty out of order with blogs, so this one will probably be no different.
Between the busy/stressful and just plain out annoying week I've had, I've squeezed in some time to work on my art show entries. I will be entering The Walking Dead one (Daryl, Michonne and Rick) possibly the Katniss drawing (It's in my art thread, as well) and a few others I haven't begun yet. I started drawing the outline for some Last of Us concept art. I'll be honest, I lov

* Decisions to be made for 2015
* Story Time!
* More details on the underfollowed folk of Twitter (Now including DeviantART!)
* Random, unrelated awesome song selection with the favorite lyrics I've chosen for this week.
So yesterday, I got a letter in the mail for my leadership project for 4-H. And I wasn't really thrilled about it. So it made me wonder if I even want to do it. I'm not technically signed up for it, so it's not like I'm breaking commitments

1. A preview of the new story I've been working on.
Keep in mind, it's a fanfic, so let's see if you can guess which fandom it's from by this brief, non-descriptive paragraph:
I was a wimp, before all of this.
If I had the choice between a horror movie and a horrible gushy romance movie, I'd choose the ro
I've never really posted a blog (Well I have... They were just really short and sweet and pointless...)
So, from what I'm assuming is: You basically treat it like a journal, like your telling a story about yourself (Just exclude adding every detail and make it informal, but not an excruciating read about you describing a new shirt you bought) Meanwhile, making it something someone would want to actually read and have interest in.
Ok, so not a big deal.
I'll think of something to write abou
