Happy New Year!

Wed Dec 31, 2008, 3:57 AM
Long Year Recapp time!

Oh and what a good year 08 has been to me! I made a ton of new friends, got some awesome watchers, started watching some awesome people!
So here my mini story about what happened this year. Yaaay, story time!

So I was attending a certain college (moneytrap) and I was a lazy ass, which is bad, because to succeed, you cant be lazy, but to late now. Anyways, When I had finished High school, the program I wanted in college was still just a regular degree, in the year break I took, it changed to a BA, lol, so now all my high school marks meant nothing and I would have to take this pre-art program to get the marks. But unfortunately, I was too stupid to catch that part, figured I could just cruise by and make it. So then, in the end, passed all my art classes well enough, but it came down to my elective. Now, this was the most bullshit class I have ever taken, and epic waste of time, so i used it to work on my portfolio, which successfully got me accepted into the program I wanted to take. But when I went to hand in all my late assignments, my prof (Satan) told me, and another large amount of people, that he could not accept my work since it was over a week late. So i failed, catastrophically, it was epic, even the stars saw how epic that failure was, and thus my entire GPA was plummeted into the ground, so then when going to accept my program, I found that I couldn't, and thus lost my acceptance :D!! Yayyy!! So for a while I was bitter and angry and sad, and stressed and all those other things that happens when you fail hard. But instead of bitching hard about it, I kind of used it as a motivation. I admit, I was all talk for a while, you know, "aw yeah, i'm gonna get so much better!" *pew pew* as I sit there undressed playing PS3, but then, thanks to :icondominiquefung: and her craziness, I was introduced to the 30 day marathon. Now some of you found me back then, uploading a picture a day. Omg....That was insane, some of the stuff I was producing was pure garbage, but it got me in the mindset I needed to be in.

So after the marathon, things slowed down a little bit, but not enough that I was going to back down. I was in this strange mindset and had a mini goal that I was going to be better than a bunch of grads from my old college, but then that would mean I would have to be better than Dominique, and yeah...not happening any time soon, lol.

Keep on going! So now here I am, half the summer is over and im struggling with sooo many ideas, not to mention i'm not allowed in my house for most of the day now due to being "lazy" and "unproductive". My parents were hitting their limits, and I cant blame them. I wouldn't be allowed in anytime before 4pm, unless I had work. But I was still scared at this point. BUT BUT BUT! Then I got lucky and was invited to a small art show up in the middle of nowhere! MY parents let me in to work on my pieces, woot! So that was fun times. I met many people, learned a lot about myself and my art and how to interact with other artists respectfully without throwing my opinions, lol, and just overall had a good time. I even sold some stuff, which was a strange concept to me.

So lets fast forward because im getting lazy, did lots of work, got my first commission, got some awesome shout outs and support from people (thanks all of you! You know who you are!) Did a few more commissions and even commercial work o.O! Learned the ropes a little bit, didn't get scammed (that's always good.

So yeah... Theres more, but i've hit my lazy peak. That's pretty much it anyways. To sum it up, I stopped bitching and throwing the blame on others and different elements, put my nose to the grind stone and started busting my ass. Half of the work I did never hit DA. Some due to NDA's and others just because they belong in my sketchbook, but I tried my best, tried to go all out...well...a little, I really could have spent more time, but my patience is thin!!

Look at all these small paragraphs now...This is why im not an english major *phail*. So this year completely school last year. I never did kirbans, and I hardly ever talked about pageviews, but this is too funny not to show, so check this out, in the beginning of 07 when I made this new account, I sucked prettttty hard, over the term of that year, from jan- dec07 I got a grand total of 2,231 pageviews! I know right? Epic. But then damn, you guys completely outdid yourselves, not sure how this page trafficed so many more people, but from well...not exactly jan, because i was still horrible then, but whatever, jan-dec of this year, you crazy people gave me 13,071 pageviews! That's ridiculous guys! Seriously, wtf? I would never have believed so many people would be interested to stop by my dinky page, and so many people commented and faved. This community went from cold to warm in seconds, and so I thank you for that!

I met some pretty hardcore people this year, but im gonna shout out a few, don't hate me if I don't mention you :(

:iconjump-love: of course, you're new to the friends list, but I kind of knew you...through the art thief...kinda...lol
Thanks for being so warm to me, even though im an idiot, and blah blah blah (that counts for 100 words)Thanks for being incredible and sweet and ~~~~~~~~ :)

:iconselladorra: Holy crap, you outdid yourself, so much support from you! I cant even keep up, thank you for sticking around and making me feel better about myself, even if i didn't deserve it :P

:icongrishend: Man, you commented on EVERYTHING, and it was always so positive. Some days I would log on and I would just see that you commented on like 50 things, you have power fingers, lol.

:iconcup-elli: You and Sangel are in direct competition, lol. So much support from you, and you improved a great deal since I met you too :)

:iconbluemoon214: You're adorable and so supportive. Thanks for the long talks with me and the constant nice words! I'll see you in 09 :D

:icontulikoura: Damn, you're amazing man. When you commented, it was BIG! I tried to feature you, but at the time my watch list was still pretty small, sorry I couldn't be a bigger help, but I still thank you for all your indepth crits and incite into my works!

:icongatling: Thanks for all the help and just awesome randomness we had in our conversations. You were always so nice to me and helped me to stop talking smack about myself. I hope you land something big in this new year, and I hope our plans dont fall through! (I need my PR card :S)

Ok, There's a lot more than that and I'm sorry if I missed you, but my thanks goes out to all of you...

So slack

Tue Dec 30, 2008, 7:02 AM
Omg, im so slack you guys! That and i like updating my journal now that I know people will read it!

But yeah, a few days ago, I was like "yeah, im gonna do a character a day! weeeee!! Then I did like 3, and stopped. But really, I didnt stop, but the characters I did were too disgraceful to post :(. And with commissions, I don't have time to noooodle over it all day. But here, I'm sure most of you already know about Conceptart.org. Well I have a sketchbook on there. So if you want to go laugh at my failures and mishaps, you can do so on the forums there. If you have an account, feel free to say hello, if not, you can laugh at me in here. My linky is hereherehere omg here!!!

Hey guys! Whats uppity?

So so so, my friend let me borrow his ocarina!! Zelda rite?:D Wrong.....shut the hell up. Ain't nothing like Zelda, and I don't play Zelda songs! (much, lol). Anyways, I've been having so much fun, I can play any song I want by ear. I still make a few mistakes, but whatever, I've only been playing for a little over a week. So, I ask you, do any of you play any instruments? And if not, what instrument do you want to play?

I want to hear about crazy ones too, like those old chinese instruments that sound so good, or Berimbau's or whatever other things. Alsooo. What is your reason for playing the instrument you do, or if you don't why not??

Just my random curiosity, and the fact that I want to talk to some of my new watchers, so don't be shy, comment comment!!

Oh..if you want to help a sucker out with some Christmas prezzies and would also like some fresh art for that empty spot on your wall, send me a note and we'll talk~!

Hi guys. Of course my journals are riddled with drama, because real life is so dull, I don 'thave any here. Anyways, I need a computer experts help. I really think my computer is kicking it finally, I mean, its 100000 years old, damn thing. But anyways.

When I start it up, it goes straight to a screen that says:
Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt

"WINDOWS/SYSTEM32/CONFIG/SYSTEM".

Now, when i saw this, I was like, "i wanted a format anyways". So did that. Completely formatted and started fresh, too bad my pc is still giving me the problem, and now my computer is acting funny. It gives me that message like 20- 30 times in a row, then randomly just starts up... But its not a normal startup, no, it takes like 30 minutes to load everything properly. Everything is open, but nothing is working. I can access all my files, but i cant get them to work. I press "sign in" on msn, absolutely nothing happens. But then 30 mins later, its working. I don't know whats going on. MY friend said its my BIOS, but I don't know how to fix that myself. I just need help here. I have a deadline at the end of this week, and im spending more hours trying to just turn on my computer than actually working....Please someone help me!!

Anyways you can pick it up here: >>>>>>www.WereDragonmag.com<<<<< and its only $3.50USD! So come on peoples, if tabletop gaming is your thang and you got a little extra change on your hands, pick it up, theres some awesome articles inside.

And yeah..thats my personal plug, wewt! Feels kind of cool :P.

Peace and love peoples!

Hey there old an new watchers. Its that time again! The Howlseage Beg-a-thon!

Sure Halloween is coming up, but OMG! Christmas is down the road, and yours truly would love to be able to buy gifts this yea-- I mean create some nice art to use as gifts! So I'm gonna take on a few commissions. I was originally going to stick to just character work, but I'll do full illustrations too.

The styles are going to be sketches like "Would you like to Duel" howlseage.deviantart.com/art/W… or "Because Im" howlseage.deviantart.com/art/B…
Character illustrations like "Armor guy thing" howlseage.deviantart.com/art/A…
Or full illustrations like "Oh Shi-" howlseage.deviantart.com/art/O…

Prices will be negotiated, ranging from $40USD and up. But yeah, just leave me a note or a comment in here if you're interested and i'll get back to you A.S.A.P.

Thanks guys.
  • Mood: Neutral
Just pushing that old journal down.
I think im going emo lately. The only thing im happy with is art and dancing, and uh...yeah..thank god for those. Everything else is kind of failing hard right now, harder than I am, and that is HARD!
I just feel like giving up, but I dont know what to give up on...isnt that pathetic? Haha, I should break out the violin now, and put on some black makeup, then maybe even join a boy band.

I really hate this feeling. I want to be me again, the happy, joke making me. Not this person whos becoming more like an empty shell. I care less and less for people as the days go by, and that contradicts everything ive told myself up until this day...I need to stop this..Blah.

I'll get over it for a while. Lifes really not that hard, and im usually stress and drama free...
Ok, im done..i guess.

Bye~

This may not seem like much to most, but in 2007, i got 2,231 page views in total, for that entire year, and I joined in March of that year. But this year, the sexy 08 i got a whopping 7,199, AND THE YEAR AINT CLOSE TO OVER YET! This means so much to me guys. You wouldnt even understand.
So yeah, just a thanks to all who has watched me this year, my old watchers who still support me, or even just drop by to glance. All those who featured me when I was upset or poor. You know the deal :D. And even my commissioners and team mates for the little projects we did or are doing. Thank you all for challenging me and keeping me thriving for that next level. Im still pushing for the top, and I still have a long way to go to get there. So bear with me. Haha, I'll be there shortly :P.
Ok, Thanks to a good friend :iconpatcarlucci: inspiring me, Im actually going to be featuring artists in my journals. So yeah. I'll edit in a bit, gonna go put some food into me before I die, and OMG only 1 paragraph?! Holy-bad-grammar!!

Oh hay all!

         So yeah...Ive been commenting and reading journals and faving things for like a week now, completely forgetting(ignoring, lol) that I didnt update my journal....

So the show was great! I didnt expect to sell anything due to the nature, but surprisingly I did! I also made some new contacts and have some commissions coming in soon. And was invited to do ---whats that?--yes!--another show XD!

Pretty exciting stuff I must say. Im gonna get a few photos in here soon tymes, as embarrassing as they are. I attended this with my friend :iconscrewbrain: who is now actually back on DA so go check him out, and his gf.

This was a great experience. I think we taught the wonders of digital painting over 50 times per day, and actually drew up a little diagram and would get mini crowds who wanted in on the learning! Was awesome stuff!

Well anyways, money wise i did ok. Didnt break even, and now I have a bunch of prints laying around so I figure I will sell some on here, if any of you would be interested. Leave me a message here or send me a note.

Seage is always interested in money...how sad! Anyways. Hope things are great with everyone.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
As a bonus! Tell me how your summers have been! I need good stories! Go go go!!

Art Show and my Poor Nerves

Poor~~Opps, Open!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ok, so I think I only started mentioning it in my last piece but im actually going to be attending my first show entitled, The Newfanglers Art Festival.
It runs from Aug 2-3 and is located in Haliburton, Ontario (canada).

Now....Haliburton is far away from everything, I have 0 clue where it is, and all I have been hearing from friends is "cottage this cottage that" So now, this is why im nervous. I dont want to go expecting to make a fortune, but I kind of want to come out of it with something, be it contacts or a little pocket change, but in cottage country...hmmm. I also don't think my work will..well work... So im wondering. What should I do. I dont have many "wall worthy" pieces in my gallery, ones that appeal to the people of higher ages. Im hoping maybe some of my watchers are dads or granddads and could tell me if they would even second glance at a print from me. Gah...im getting nervous, but I really want to go there to have some fun, meet some contacts and not worry about people hating my work.

Thanks for any advice you can offer. And if you live around this area, send me a note and I'll get you more info on the show.

CJ~

Commission Prices/Info

Just trying my luck, heh. I want to be so bogged down with art, that its a crime! I want to be mentally unstable!! Yeahh...that's my dream.

Anyways, I got some prices now. I hope they're reasonable, because there is no way im gonna be selling sketches and paintings for $5. I actually like income. Um. I am also offering coloring commissions too. You can send me your line work whether its comic pages, to posters or whatever and I can color that up for you. Those prices are completely negotiable though.

So yeah, If you have any concerns, feel free to drop me a note or comment in here. And I hope to hear from some of you soon!

(Will link some examples later)

Finding Myself + Sub

Wed Jun 25, 2008, 7:44 PM
~~~We got 21 Seconds to go~~~

Hey Hey! Just wanted to test out how this journal looks. Prob the same since i dont have any CSS stuff going on, but its ok. I also wanted to bump that old one. And btw, if you didnt notice, I finally bought myself a subscription!! :D

Ok, well, recently things have been looking brighter. Ive met some awesome talent on this site and in person, been working really hard to get my painting/coloring better, and have been given chances by some sweet ass friends, like :iconpatcarlucci: for instance, who featured me in his journal and got me out of a tight spot. I really gotta thank everyone for the support I have been given lately, all my new watchers, and old ones who still come around to say hello!

Right now I am really trying to find myself, not in a life way, haha, but in an artistic way. I mean, everyone has a style and blah blah, but I dont really care about that, I feel that will come in time. But I have this problem where, if i see work that inspires me, I somehow mimic their technique...I never copy work, or just rip off. But say I see someone who paints really rough, I'll go and try it, then do something im actually proud of, but never do it again as ive found new inspiration and moved on to that! Its cool to learn so much, but sometimes I feel like i need to stop, sit down, and refine one of these skills which ive developed. I dont know...maybe im talking crap...Anyways. Thats all for now. Thanks again everyone!

Im also trying to take on coloring jobs. So if you have some lines you need colored, please message me, or if you know a way to get work in that type of stuff, please tell me.
Prices are negotiable.
