Christmas Wish List!!

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 19, 2015, 8:41 PM


This was a lot of fun last year, so why not give it another try? :D

STEP ONE


Make a post to your DA journal. The post should contain your list of ten holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a ______ icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("all I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV."). The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your DA or link to this post so that the holiday joy will spread.

STEP TWO


Surf around your friends list (or friends' friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now, here's the important part:

If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use -- do it.

You need not spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf -- to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not -- it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Give, and you might receive. and you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.


Here we go!

1. Any fanart/fanfiction of the OC's in the Remnants: Mark of the Chosen folder or Quest to Find Blueentity folder in my gallery.

2. Any fanart/fiction of my favorite characters from anime/movies/tv like Edward Elric (Fullmetal Alchemist), Train Heartnet (Black Cat), Doctor Whooves (My Little Pony Friendship is Magic), the Tenth Doctor or the Eleventh Doctor (Doctor Who), Sora (Kingdom Hearts), Axel (Kingdom Hearts), Baymax (Big Hero Six), Toothless and Hiccup (How To Train Your Dragon)

3. Exchange friend codes for 3DS

4. Anything shinx, luxio, or luxray related (Pokemon)

5. Anything Star Wars related. (omg.... the movie is coming out soon!!!!!)

6. Commissions for hair bows!! I make awesome ones, really! lol, I suppose I should put some of them up here on Deviant Art, eh?

7. THESE SOCKS!!!! www.pokemoncenter.com/Pikachu-…

8. Christmas cards!!!!

9. Feedback on my stuff? It really makes my day when people comment!!!

10. Prayers, warm wishes and hopes for the coming year!

I'm not tagging anyone because I really should be doing other things right now!!! lol

DeviantART Questionnaire

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 2, 2015, 10:15 AM
I'm late as usual, but that's ok right? :D

DeviantArtist Questionnaire

    How long have you been on DeviantArt? Almost 7 years! Has it been that long? O.o

    What does your username mean? lol, this is always a long story. Pull up and chair and grab some popcorn, ok?
A long time ago (ten years, give or take :giggle: ), on a website far, far away (amaranthia.com) my big brother found a free to play RPG game named Ahriman's Prophecy and recommended it to me to  play. So we played the game together, compared notes, discussed game options and generally had fun. Then, he started talking about conversations he was having with other people about the game and I found out about the forums on the site. I had never joined a forum before so I lurked about the site until I felt I could be comfortable adding to the conversation. When I joined, I wanted to be linked to my big brother in some way, and his user name was Blueentity (Oh yes, the title character from my webcomic is named after my brother. In fact there's an entire story to how The Quest to Find Blueentity came about, but that's a story for a different time). Well, purple is my favorite color and my favorite element is fire, so Purplefire was born and I've used some variation of the handle ever since. ;)

    Describe yourself in three words.
Spazzy, Moody and Passionate

    Are you left or right handed?
Right handed, but I can write more legibly with my left hand than my oldest son writes with his dominant hand. :D

    What was your first deviation?
Blossom by Purplefire40
lol, this is from such a looooooong time ago now.

    What is your favorite type of art to create?
Art that's pretty!!!!! Oh wait, you wanted something like OC's, fanart or photography, right?

    If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Origami! Seriously, it's awesome, right? Either that or costume making. 

    What was your first favorite?
Pirate Sora, revisited by Saehral
And I still love it. :la:

    What type of art do you tend to favorite the most?
PRETTY ART!!! Why do they keep asking this question? :iconimhappyplz:
I suppose I favorite a look of fanart, but honestly, if the picture is awesome, I will favorite it.

    Who is your all-time favorite deviant artist?
My favorite artist changes with the day, hour, month, season, my mood.... picking one is too much work right now.

    If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
:iconzue::iconspeedyalchemist::iconhinata-teh-lefty::icontaisiya::iconflowerlark:

    How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Have you seen the improvements my art has made since I joined? When I see other artists pushing themselves forward and being awesome, it makes me want to move forward too! I take inspiration from piles and piles of people here!

    What are your preferred tools to create art?
Camera, Pencil and paper, my scanner and Photoshop.

    What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
This is going to sound weird but..... Saturday nights while playing Dungeons and Dragons. I'm always so BORED waiting for the rest of the group to stop monologing and actually PLAY so I'm usually sketching in my sketch book.
Also Barnes and Noble is a GREAT place for me to sketch and be inspired. :D

    What is your favorite DeviantArt memory?
I'm not sure? Meeting so many fabulous people is one, but so is when I've participated in events like Secret Santas.

So there you have it! If you want to complete one of these on your journal, here's the questions! And honestly, there should be a question for "What's your favorite deviation that you've submitted?" or "What's your favorite favorite?" lol

DeviantArtist Questionnaire 

    How long have you been on DeviantArt?
    What does your username mean?
    Describe yourself in three words.

    What was your first favorite?
    What type of art do you tend to favorite the most?
    Who is your all-time favorite deviant artist?
    If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
    How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
    What are your preferred tools to create art?
    What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

Hihi everyone!!

This summer..... omg, it's been busy and long!! I've done so much stuff with my kids, but one of those things hasn't been artwork. It's been rather relaxing, but at the same time, I feel kind of guilty for not being on. Hopefully, when the children start back at school, I'll have some extra time to do some artwork and comment on all the pretties that have been posted on my messages while I've been gone!!!!

You know you may have burnt yourself out on an idea/story/character if:
Two months after deleting everything off your laptop concerning Remnants: Mark of the Chosen, you are finally able to look at one of your poor OC's without wanting to scream, curl up in a ball and hide, or run away.

How's everyone doing? School year is almost done for my kiddos so we're running around like madmen trying to get everything finished up.

Explaination Please?

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 22, 2015, 9:30 AM
Gah, I feel OLD for asking this but....

Can anyone explain what Tumblr is, please? I've seen so many people on DeviantArt suddenly announce, "I'm not active here anymore, come follow my Tumblr!" To me, it simply looks like a blogging site where you talk and post pictures, any pictures at all that people find on the Internet, not just your own art.... Is the site simply the newer version of Facebook? *scratches head* This old artist is confused about what's on the up and up.

*runs in circles*

Thank you in advance!

Hihi everyone! I hope your year has been fun and awesome so far!

Question for everyone: I'm getting ready for a couple of anime conventions this summer and I've figured out how to do Pokemon sprites with fuse beads!! I am taking suggestions for Pokemon bead sprites to sell! (note: Legendaries are complicated to the point of headdesking over them. Please do not suggest Legendary Pokemon!)

I currently have:
Fennekin
(I sold out of this one at the last con..... must have more!)
Eevee and it's evolutions
Torchic
Snivy
Chimchar
Honedge
(I sold out of everything else... lol)

Hey hey everyone!! Let's have some fun, eh?

Feel free to ask either myself or my OC's questions in the comments!! Here are the OC's that volunteered (*cough* were forced) to participate!

(And it occurs to me that I have dozens of sketches of these characters in my sketch book but only a handful here? *fails*)

Ask away!! Please keep in mind that ultra personal questions will be declined. ;)

A little help?

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 17, 2014, 9:27 PM

Please?

My creative muse has taken an extended vacation and it's starting to worry me that it might be gone for good.....

I don't blame my muse, I've had ideas but I shoot them down pretty quickly with lame excuses of 'Well, that would be nice but my art sucks right now.' or 'You do not have nearly the level of art awesomeness to pull this idea off.' or even 'That would be awesome but I have no idea how to go about making that.....'

Any suggestions for digging myself out of this creative hole I've fallen into?

Deviant Art Clean Up and Updates

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 8, 2014, 11:23 AM
Hihi watchers!!! I'm going to be cleaning out my gallery next week so I wanted to give everyone a chance to grab any pieces that they might be sentimental towards. I don't think that I'm going to delete any of the most recent pictures, but there are some floating around in the bowls of my gallery that I cringe when I see them now.

In other news, Remnants: Mark of the Chosen is currently on hiatus. I'm not sure for how long and I wish I could give a tangible date for starting back up. The story is not where I want it to be and it feels lame and my ideas have completely dried up so I'm taking an extended break. Hopefully after some time off, the ideas will start flowing again.

Photoshop RIP

Journal Entry: Mon May 26, 2014, 4:52 PM
*sobs* Photoshop has died a sudden death on my laptop.... I can't find the back up disk so all of my artwork and even my comic has come to a screeching halt. I've downloaded GIMP but figuring out the quirks of the program is proving frustrating. I 'am' working on a new line of charms to sell at conventions, so I'm still producing artworks, just not digital ones. I hope to get some of the charms up here on DevArt soon.

Ninja tag!

Journal Entry: Fri May 9, 2014, 11:44 AM
Hihi everyone!! I was tagged by the lovely :iconexarrdian: so here we go!!

1. What do you think needs improving in your art/or writing if you write?
I need to improve upon backgrounds, proportions, foreshortening, figuring out how to shade hair, feet, hands, how clothing moves with the body, weight, inking... oh gah.... I just need improvements all over the place so let's just say I'm a work in progress? :D


2. How do you motivate yourself when you hit the lows?
I take a break, watch a show (be it anime or tv), read a book, take a walk, count my blessings, write down five things to be thankful for, eat some chocolate, sometimes even hide in my room. Whatever works, right?


3. Do you have a motto you've made yourself?
"The people who look at you strangely when you suddenly burst out into song and dance are just jealous they aren't the main character."


4. What's your current life goal? (big or small, could be just cooking a meal!)
Make it through the end of the school year with my kids and sell lots at an anime convention this summer!!!!


5. Do you have an artwork which you know it has flaws but you still adore it very much? If so share it!
I couldn't decide, so I'll share two!!
Fullmetal Alchemist by Purplefire40 Overflowing Emotions by Purplefire40


6. What's your guilty pleasure? Admit it! You have such! Everyone has such. Ninja
Eating ice cream after the children have gone to bed so I don't have to share it with them. O.o


7. Favorite part of the day/night?
I really like sunset and twilight. No, not the books silly. You know, the time of day when the sun is down but it's still light out in the west, but it's dark in the east.


8. Name something popular which you are actually sick of hearing/seeing!
Hetalia. I just don't get it....


9. Obligatory, pick-your-super-powers question! What's yours?
Teleportation!! That way, I wouldn't have to rely on having a car!!


10. And lastly...! What'd be your role in a fairy tale? Dashing hero? Misunderstood villain? Or?
The mum who made sure everyone got where they needed to go but is now stuck at home waiting for everyone to return and getting slowly more ticked off that the dinner she has worked hard on to serve hot and on time is getting cold. Oh wait, are we crossing the line into villain? :D

I'm not tagging a pile of people, but here are some questions you can answer in the comment section if you want!!

1. Your life is now the last tv show you watched!! What is it?
2. You have the opportunity to jump into any book and explore!! Which book do you jump into?
3. If you could draw/write ONE thing perfectly for the rest of your life, what would it be?
4.What kind of socks to you prefer? Tube socks? Toe socks? No show socks? NO socks at all? Other?
5 Would you prefer to travel by bus, car, plane or train?
6.Give yourself a feature!! Which deviation of yours do you love, love, LOVE?
7.You're part of a band! (rock band, orchestra, it's up to you!) What do you play?
8. You suddenly have an hour of free time. What do you do?
9. Your favorite quote?
10. Last thing you coplayed? If you haven't cosplayed, the last event you got dressed up for?

Arist Blues.....

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 21, 2014, 11:40 AM


I think I'm thinking about it too much..... Blarg....

I'm stuck on my webcomic, it's seeming to drag. Plus, I'm starting to cringe whenever it's time to work on it. Or I just don't feel like working on Remnants, but that falls under being a lazy butt. I'm having issues with where the story is going, how my characters are supposed to arrive at future points in the story, the story dragging on too long where it's currently at, not knowing how my characters are reacting to certain situations, wondering it my characters are too flat and boring, feeling that the whole thing is just lame.....

Yeah, so lots of artist blues going on.

Thanks for listening! *throws glitter*

Alpha asked:

1. What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I enjoy reading of any kind: novels, manga, cookbooks, magazines, books my kids are reading for school. I also enjoy watching a couple of shows with my honey, such as Dr. Who, Torchwood, Arrow and several shows on Food Network. Sometimes, I even have time for anime!

2. What are ways that you relax?
Listening to music, reading, sometimes even eating a piece of chocolate and taking a deep breath!

3. Favorite movie?
That's a tough one.... I have come to the realization that I really don't have a 'favorite' movie, but I really like several. I really like Star Wars, Tangled, Treasure Planet, The Emperor's New Groove, Shrek and Megamind

4. Favorite genre of music?
Rock and classical

5. Do you prefer Facebook or Twitter?
Facebook. I don't have a Twitter.

6. Do you like playing video games? If so, which system and video game (or series if you prefer) is your favorite?
I loooooove playing video games. Probably more than I should because video games are distracting me from taking care of my family. :D I like the Nintendo DS system mostly because it's portable but I also like the PS2. My favorite games are Kingdom Hearts II, Kingdom Hearts 3D and Tales of the Abyss

7. Digital or Traditional?
Digital. It's easier to fix mistakes.

8. What are some of your strengths and weaknesses in your artwork?
I have strengths with design and working with mono colored works. I also have persistence, which doesn't seem like much but it counts when I have big projects. My weaknesses are backgrounds, complicated poses, motion, feet, legs, basically anything that makes your artwork really pop and make other pay attention. 

9. Favorite Quote?
"Not everyone who wanders is lost."

10. What gives you inspiration? (This can be with art or anything at all.)
God's creation gives me inspiration, as does looking at what other people do with their art. Sometimes, the people I pass by while out shopping give me inspiration as well. I WILL have an awesome old man with a mohawk and eight earrings as one of my characters eventually. And yes, I met an old man like that once. :D


Speedy asked:

1: When's your birthday?
June 1

2: What's your favorite song?
I have sooooo many. Anything by The Piano Guys, Yuki Kajuira and several other songs.....

3: If you had three wishes, what would they be?
A. To have my own teleportation machine that would take me anywhere in the world in an instant.
B. To always know exactly what my next page for my comic would look like.
C. To be able to draw exactly what I see either in my head or in the world.

4: What's your favorite Anime and Manga?
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and Fullmetal Alchemist

5: what's your favorite subject in school?
I don't attend school anymore. Graduated with honors with a Bachelor of Arts degree over 12 years ago.

6: What's your dream?
To be a better mom (and to travel the world)

7: What;s your favorite color and why?
My favorite color is purple!!!!! (Imagine that!) I started to like purple because my sister loved it AND because my mum hated the color, so there was a little bit of rebellion in there.

8: What kinds of foods do you like best?
Homemade foods. Never ever the 'Open your box of pre-made and/or pre-breaded food, stick in over and eat' food. My favorite foods currently are panfried sausage and potatoes, chocolate chip cookies, and grilled cheese with bacon and tomato.

9: Do you like the hot or the cold better?
I like cold better because I can always put on another pair or socks or another sweater. If it's too hot, you can't take more off.

10: If you could live anywhere, where would you want to live?

I'm not sure..... Before we bought our own house, I would have said anywhere but here, but now that we've put down some roots, I have to say that I want to stay right here. I'd like to travel and visit ANYWHERE though. :D
