Birthday coming to an endI would like to say thanks to the following people. All of your birthday wishes made today that much better (even with it's rough first half)
In my head, I am giving each of you a bear hug!
Speaking of hugs, just wanna give a shout out to BoiledHard : THANKS FOR BEING AWESOME AND GENEROUS! Curious as to what happened? Go check out CorruptedWaffles ' page.
Matryoshka, my last hopeI was dying. How could I not go?
My name is Kurosubi Arison. My friends used to call me Aris.
Up to a year ago, everything was fine. Hiking, Kendo, Thai boxing. I even did Karaoke now
and then. I was perfectly healthy... Until the morning of February 11. That was when
everything went wrong.
I'd waken up in the hospital bound by restraints.
The details were fuzzy since holding on to conciousness was becoming increasingly
difficult, but the one thing I rememeber the doctors discussing to my step brother is that
my condition was fatal. The doctors had given me 12 months, 18 at most. I heard my
brother begin to weep on the phone as he delivered the news to our parents.
I was only 28. I didn't want to die. I wanted kids. I wanted a family.
So when I was coherent enough to make a decision, they told me about this place called
Matryoshka. They referred to it as a research facility working on a drug that -if successful-
could cure me. Who could say no?
But part of me IS saying no. My gut
For a split second...For a split second, I get frustrated about how rarely anyone commissions me or that when I do get a commission its always the same people. I do. I get frustrated because I have tried busting my butt and hurting my brain trying to do the whole social media in an attempt to expand my audience. And for a split second I really do wonder what the point is in expending so much energy and stretching myself super thin trying to get myself off of the ground amidst all of my health issues, AND be a mother as well. And then I see people with ginormous galleries filled with commissions over and over again.
For a split second, even thought I am happy that it is working out so well for them, I wanna throw my tablet pen in the trash and say "Fuck it. Just fuck it all."
But then something happens.
I remember that I have only been doing digital art since last February. I find solace in that, if even just a little. It reminds me that I DO have a gift for it. I find even more solace in seeing how long th
Contest time!Alright, so this one will be quite different .
I have an OC that has been stuck in my head for quite some time now. I don't even have a concrete name for her yet. Your task - should you choose to accept it - is to give her form. So since I don't have any points this will be an art trade I suppose. The winning artist/designer will receive a full body of one of their own OCs.
So here are her details:
Hair: Red, at least past her shoulders
Skin: Medium Brown, small freckles on her face on the top of her cheeks
Not muscular or anything, but she is fit [Bullet; White]
[Bullet; White] Chest: D Cup [Bullet; White]
[Bullet; White] She is not girly but not quite a tomboy [Bullet; White]
[Bullet; White] She prefers the outdoors, but still loves being at her computer [Bullet; White]
[Bullet; White] She HATES pink.

Transformers: We Came in WarTransformers: We Came in War
Setting: Sometime during the Bay films
Characters: Optimus Prime
We came to this planet because ours was gone.
The quest for power consumed our home. The need for domination destroyed us. Still we live, and yet there is a piece in each of us that has been decimated forever. We will never recover what we have lost.
I look down upon this planet, and I wonder why we try.
It is evident by now that we have lost the capacity for peace. War follows in our wake. We came to retrieve the AllSpark, which has long since been lost, and we are still here. All that came of attempting to revive our planet was the relocation of the war from our planet of death to this planet of life. There is so much life on this planet. All of it we have sworn to protect. This is the promise we have made to them. But the promise would not need to have been made if we had never co
AndromedaAmongst the darkened skies
Brightened by only starlight
Field & Sea.
Gravity is only an afterthought
Hilltops become ladders into the sky while
Inferior planets stare down upon the Earth
Jealous of such simplicity yet contemplating grandeur.
Keppler only thought of science
Linear, elliptical, movement…
Mythology had no such thoughts
Neptune & Nebulas both inhabit space
Orbiting across the lonely darkness
Probably never worried about mundane things
Questioning their existence
Right now or for all eternity such as us.
Shooting stars make us joyful while
Terminator is an otherworldly spectacle
Unknown to all those hidden in their houses
Various stars await us outside
Waiting to play like we did before
Xenagogue & inviting
Youthful but ancient curiosities.
Zenith induced euphoria continues until daylight…
