DENIAL.....What would this world be without it?
I have a particular watcher who used to generally come bitch at me about yet another one of his favorite artists to commission dropping hentai as a particular service they provide. It was a tad bit annoying hearing about it once every few weeks, but in general, I listened and agreed, it was quite bullshit that the person in question decided to drop something they're known for and abandon their fans. It reminds me of my mugen days when someone would complain about their creations being warehoused and then would quit forever and DELETE EVERYTHING to get back at the people who hosted their content without perimission, when all they really did was punish their fanbased for something they couldn't even control.
It doesn't bother me so much that you want to quit hentai so much as it does the other guy, but when you quit something, I expect you to fully do it. I get it. You might have a family now and constant societal p
Somebody please tell me....Why do people offer head and bust commissions alongside full body ones? It just sounds like a stupid, half assed way of saying "I want to do less work and get paid for it" or worse still "I want to be affordable to people but I don't want to work too hard". It's just absolutely mindnumbingly dumb to me. You DO know that you can simply just tone down the quality of the work you do for them so that you don't have to work too hard, but still offer a completed piece for them that's within reason and is still of a quality denoting the asking price? I mean, you could simply quick sketch out a pose, and do only minimum fixes for something below your standard price scale.
I do notice there are people who do this as a sort of custom since they've seen others do it, but this isn't directed at you if that is the case - though I would highly recommend you take these words to heart, as it seems rather pointless.
EDIT: DISCLAIMER - This journal was prompted after
I WISH I COULD DISABLE FAVORITESDoes almost nothing for me. People fave and fave and fave, and at some point, it's basically the same people who are faving, so you as an artist can't even check their profiles for content that is new to you. It's like the laziest way to say you appreciate something, but hey, I can kinda understand. A lot of more professional artists don't engage with their fanbase, and you wind up with people not bothering to try to say anything as a way of not having to worry about their words being wasted on an empty response.
But not me. I'll always be responsive to feedback or reception of any kind. Even if I ever do make it big, I will at least reply to the first several pages of responses I get, and let everyone know that as well, so they don't feel left out.
I'm not going to poke, prod, or pull you're arm to get you to comment, you're free to do whatever you want, but also don't be surprised if the reaction you get from faving without anything more doesn't amount t
SHEN NEWS - I'M BACK + LIFE IS SHITAfter seeing how I've been performing lately, knocking stuff out like I should and all, I think it's safe to say for certain this time, that I will be actively participating on Deviant Art with a sense of consistency - that is, not just looking for artwork or tutorials to save every day or people to chat or troll, but actually seeking out people to interact with more often and being present enough to engage with people within a timely manner. That's good news for people looking for requests and commissions from me, and for those who were interested in just hanging out, where as I've always been somewhat of a let down.
This good news doesn't come without a price though. Of course everything does. Family tragedy happened last Friday when Grams passed away. She had recently celebrated a birthday and had gotten way up in age too. Fucking shame. Felt quite empty, as this puts a huge gap between me and the rest of that side of the family, as she brought us
Shen News - April Edition - Save Naan AnaNormally don't do these, mostly because I don't really find very many artists who I can call myself cool with, nor can I say that my reputation with the DA community would help them out in the slightest, but hey, at least I'm trying this time.
Fellow artists :iconnaan-ana:'s feeling down about the lack of interest in his arts. Spreading the good word and putting his face out there from my end of the spectrum. Hopefully you'll check him out and spread the word.
Anyway, update in my current situation:
Kinda just recovered from a massive anxiety spell that lasted way too long. A change in meds actually killed that shit outright, but it gradually comes back in bits in pieces. Kinda stops progress dead in it's tracks. But I'm glad something's working now. That extra confidence is a magical fn' thing I tell ya. Makes you want to do all the things. So back to it I go. I owe one guy a review of his book, so I'll be getting to that, along wi
SHEN NEWS FEB 16 '17 - The PremonitionI know for the past 2 years I haven't been one to update very frequently, and if I did, it was mostly to post trolls I've been doing to other people who I felt deserved it. But if you noticed, I haven't even been doing THAT. Well, that's becasue I'm sinking further and further into the depressionz. I'm basically living check to check again, as the place I stay at has had it's rent increased, but not it's service, funny thing, that.
Mold scare this (unresolved),
IRS scare that (unresolved),
Job threatening to fire me (though at this point, couldn't care less, and am kinda hoping they do, because I could use the extra free time to sit around doing something I do enjoy and finish everyone's commissions, and art requests while I sit on my ass and collect unemployment from these pieces of shit).
Been growing gray hairs and actually losing hair off the top (possibly because I tried something I saw on the internet, and not necessarily due to stress - thank
SHEN NEWS - WHACK ASS TROJANComputer running SLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW.
I used to have a strict guideline for how I browse the internet, but apparently I went stupid for a bit and allowed myself to go to any website I wanted to. Guess I pwned myself. Whoopdie.
KarmaThe rules on which this world operates are quite interesting and highly ironic.
About a month ago, had some guy come up and ask for commissions. Upon agreeing to take his, and upon completion, he became obsessive and needy. Never paid for shit, and yet I kept my cool - hey, it's a sketch commission, I'm not losing out on much. But over the course of the last 2 weeks, despite having other commissions that costed 10x more than what he was offering, he decided to pester me daily practically demanding that I sketch for him again ahead of them. I calmly kept telling him to wait a little longer.
INSTANT KARMA: Today, when I have just completely finished my commissions list and am TOTALLY FREE to take more, he decides to tell me that he no longer has patience with me and wanted to give me the business. Hope he's happy..... with another artist doing shit for him, cuz I won't. LOLz.
And some of the people who said they wouldn't commission me becau
About LlamasWhile I do like and appreciate the idea of people sending them to me, I'm definitely not liking the idea that it makes up for lack of content, or those who think they'll just toss me a llama and I'll give it back. That is some pedestrian level shit man. You're not interested in me, but just want to do something you feel is nice, which amounts to pretty much nothing - almost insulting - and then expect something back? Yeah right.
I'm tired of this crap. Tossing out faves and llamas don't make up for lack of comments or content from you. And I definitely ain't taking into consideration those who demand you not thank them for a llama once they've given you one. That's too fuckin bad. If you have that shit on your page, I'm thanking you anyway, just for thinking you can tell me what to do. I allow complete freedom on my page, and I expect the same from you when it comes to me, REGARDLESS of whether you feel it's imposing. I'll onl
PLEASE READ - The Ransomware EpidemicPlease share, fave and spread this journal. You could help many people on DeviantArt protect their computers from this horrific cyberattack and raise awareness about the issue to those who haven't yet heard of it.
Funny how all these years of me picking and choosing updates to keep my computer functioning how I want it (you know... to have what you paid for and keep my product without others stealing it and modifying it *cough*badupdates*cough* ... basic consumer rights... but anyway) came to haunt me.
So I finally decided that I'd bite the bullet and update my updates... only to find out Windows Update was refusing to update and would forever stay stuck "searching for updates". Just my luck. When I really don't want updates they try to install, and when I really need them they don't.
Anyhow, why am I so desper

Collection: My Little Pony plz - Mane Cast 1/2Hello, my sexy ponies!
Yes, I totally stole that greeting from the adorable :iconkezzi-rose: whose profile you should definitely visit. I have never seen a cuter one on deviantArt
This is a collection of so-called plz-accounts related to the animated television series "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic". If you have not seen it yet, this is your first step in joining the herd. Just watch the Pilot Episode and see if it can win your sympathy The original collection comes from MLPFiMplz, but it has not been updated in a while, so I thought I make it 20% cooler
Since the size of a Journal entry is limited to 60KB, I had to split the collection:
Mane Cast 1/2: Greeting; Explanations; Twilight Sparkle, Pinkie Pie, Apple
i will never understandhow a bunch of people can be so awful to others even if they have done like absolutely nothing at all
you dont like animations/cartoons/anime? thats okay, absolutely no problem with that. nobodys judging you for that.
bashing on others like "fucking weaboo" or saying something like "you were never original in the first place" to any kind of animator
that is just rude?? why do you have to spread so much fucking useless hate on someone who has never done anything bad, especially not to you
or like in general, when someone enjoys something that does not fucking hurt you
why do you have to insult other people for feeling comfortable with what they like
if someone enjoys the colour pink that doesnt mean they're "such a fucking pussy girl"
or being a furry?? i mean im not a fan of the furry fandom and i dont consider myself as one/never really had
but i am happy for every single furry that has found their way of life, they're happy and that makes me happy
Find Your Homestuck Troll Blood Color!Yeah so here is how it works! You need to figure out your sun sign, and your moon sign. There is a calculator similar to this one out there, but it doesn't take in account jade bloods or mutants. This also doesn't require rounding. Hussie has already stated that the only troll blood colors that exist are the ones we have seen in the comic + lime. I also had to take in account that the jade blood color is rare, but the odds of getting jade with the distribution unadjusted are extremely high, so I figured out a way to make it work so it makes sense. I also took in account that fuchsia blood is extremely rare, and so is being mutant. The distribution that I am working with is a pyramid. I'll explain the breakdown at the end.
