Patreon: Please read!

Normally I wouldn't self promote like this, but I just would let you guys know that I've opened a Patreon! If you haven't heard of it before, it's basically a campaign site were you can go and support your favorite artists and more by helping to fund them. You donate a certain amount of money once a month, and you get special perks by doing so.

So, I've opened a Patreon, because I can't really do much but draw and make speed paint videos. My parents are pressuring me to make money in anyway I can, so this was the only thing I could think of. You only need to donate $1 a month, and that would be a huge help for me!

There are perks for every amount option for donating. Also, if we reach certain goals I'll be able to help you guys out a lot by holding tutorial livestreams, or even just making tutorial videos for you!

Please check it out at least! I would really help me a lot!



Thank you!!! :heart:

SS ~Wish List~

Hi! Here's my wish list for the Secret Santa 2014 event! I'll be giving you a few options, because I want to make sure that you are able to pick something that you're comfortable with drawing.

I would love for you to draw any of my below OCs. (All pictures are linked to DeviantArt. Just in case you need to know that.) Each link for each specific character will have more refs in the folder that they belong in.

You can draw my persona. http://fav.me/d86332khttp://fav.me/d7o94gd

One of these lovely boys. Ryan is the red head and Gil is the blond. http://fav.me/d7vhbt4 Ryan alone --> http://fav.me/d85a4kr Gil alone --> http://fav.me/d5r5wxs

Or you can draw my oldest OC, Nino. http://fav.me/d88dgj1 http://fav.me/d88dfv4

If none of those work for you, I'm a huge fan of Sonic the Hedgehog, Knuckles and Shadow are my faves, LoZ and TMNT, Raph and Mikey my faves from there.

Have fun, and I can't wait to see what you come up with!


Chat, chat, chats, and favorite song.

I don't really know what to say. My life has been just full of sickness lately. I'm surprised that I've even been able to animate and draw at all during the past couple months. I've become a living zombie. I can never get enough sleep, or food, or anything because of my sickness. But, in two days I'm finally able to go and see a specialist. I've been waiting two months for this appointment. I hope that she'll just see how sick I've become and just start my treatment.

On a happier note, one of my best friends has come back for a bit from his LDS mission. I've missed talking to his so much! When I got a text today from him I really didn't know what to think, but I'm super happy and it really brightened my day considerably.

Also, in a couple weeks I'm hopefully going to visit my best friend that I haven't seen for like, 4-5 years. It's going to be great! I'll be there for her birthday and everything! But, if it's snowing too bad I might not be able to make it to the complete opposite end of my state. But, I really, really, REALLY, hope it works out!

......that's really all I had to say. I just felt that I needed to do an update of my life currently. Now...have a video of my favorite song at the moment. It's YES YES sung by the vocaloid Big Al. It's good, I promise!

DeviantART problems

Has anyone had the Read Only mode problems on DeviantART today like I have? I've been in Read Only mode for 6 hours now, and it's making me nervous. I get all my business from DA, and it's usually on Sundays as well. I can't read messages or anything.

Am I the only one?
