There is a possibility that I will also do more acrylic paintings; I have yet to decide on a price.

And, is it possible to sell fanfiction??

Here are examples:

Pete's Extermination_Story n' Art_For artgirl87 by IZZY-CHAN13 Sleepover_Contest Prize for x-Ink-Black-Heart-xA small groan slipped out of the boy's jarring mouth, tossing one final time in his sleep. A hand failed with its arm as it felt something, a source of heat and flesh.
Instead of jumping out of bed, a heavy head fell back into its lumped pillow. Palms tried to rub at irritated sockets, eyes baggy from another sleepless night. He realized that his chest was bare, exposed and a bit cold. A blanket was pulled to his chin… Random shapes flew in and out subconscious to try and make sense the events past.
It took Mike-E forever to get past the low drone of that wicked sensual spell…
On the rooftop again, gazing out into the blood red sunset. A short breath carried a frustration easily identified by the glare of jaded orbs and a pulling back of jet back hair by calloused, gloved fingers.
More than once had the memories of "him" waded within his mind… This mouse had about enough; it would be that much easier to seek "him" out and beat the living daylights out of him. With
After TodayIt's been a couple of weeks since my dad left to spend the rest of his happy life with the librarian, Ms. Mar-pole-ey. Er, I mean Marpole. Wasn't her name "Sylvia" or something?
Whatever. I'm glad that he found the right one after so long. I really am!
It's been a while since I had a mother. Heh heh. Man, the sun's making me kinda tired. I shuffle to the blinds and mess with the drawstrings until the orange light disappears from the room. The cotton feels good on my nose, cushioning my fall to the bed, "You did good, Max. You did good." I wrap arms around my pillow and bury my face in there for a minute, trying to get a wink of sleep…
"Hey Max!"
I let out a tiny groan as the wheat field disappears from my view again. Thrown back into nothing but a black hole, my hands reach for the edge of the mattress before I push my hand out of the cushion. My muzzle made a funny looking imprint, from what my half-shut eyes could see, "Yeah Bobby,—I yawn, "What is it?"
My aching nec
Don't EvenI can't stay here.
I can't take any more of this imprisonment. I need to get out.
Blindly I splash a glob of red ink onto the stretched canvas. Hot air escapes my quivering lips. I can barely breathe. I find myself searching for that box again… There's got to be something better tasting than this crap. I open a gilded window to let the thin trails slither out from my lit torch. Only when I can think clearly again I look back into the depths of my private studio.
Well, actually, it's my bedroom. My dad's refused to set aside one of the countless rooms in the house for my only source of pleasure in this strange world. I take a deep token before coughing again; I keep on smoking to ease the mental tension, "I want to get out."
This is only wishful thinking. I've always thought about running away, but then… I look at the stretched canvas again, running fingers across my mother's hair, deep red. I prop my hand's tips to the background and prod continuously and haphazardly to creat
Our Rope_Bradley Solo AU“Oh no.” The throat contracted with fingers pulling at the collar of a white dress shirt. He was just feet away from that accursed entrance. Feelings of nervousness mixed with anger made Bradley hesitant to press the call button. Rather, a fist hit the surrounding wall of the Uppercrust Estate.
I don’t want to be here.
He must have been under the influence to finally comply to Tank’s suggestion to “spend time with the old man” after so long. The right hand man was right in assuming that the leader was more or less losing ground in his sanity, him going so far as to threaten his own teammates for illegitimate reasons.
It had been months after that post X-Games lecture where the whole Gamma team was present at Alphonse’s command, via jet plane. The words from his mouth did nothing but ruin the dignity the corrupt team had left, and if that wasn’t enough he told the rest of the team to get out of his office to speak with his own son a
Spring Semester's about over. Going to hopefully take classes in the summer. Enjoying my volunteer work even during school hours..
I stumbled some academically speaking but that was the fault of the professor and everything else is great as usual *typically an "A" student* I think.
But things are a fuckin' blur and I'm just going through the motions. I don't like to be a downer (according to some I'm an aggressor) so I'm apologizing ahead of time for doing some venting that would have been wiser to do on either of my alternate deviantART accounts (Yes I own 3 of them, thanks for noticing) but I got rid of the journal add-ons for a reason, maybe organization.

From really stupid n' trivial shit to real life matters, here I go sabotaging myself again -_-; Don't have to read if you don't want to. But I'll be updating once in a while since it seems it's going to take an hour for each section e3e;;;


Disney (canon) does not stand on a pedestal.
I enjoy Ralph Bakshi's work for one. His schtick is adult animation. I enjoy the old cartoons of the 20s, 30s and 40s, and then I pick and choose from there. They included much of what's considered too offensive today, hence censored for the P.C. mentality. It's odd that it reaches mainly to cartoons when they weren't meant for kids to begin with; quite a bit of the old Disney shorts weren't too "friendly". Time changes that and there's good and bad side effects to it. Now, what I like to do since I grew up on Disney myself is exploit it to a certain degree. But it's only happened to 2 franchises so far: Goof Troop and Wreck-it-Ralph. Before I hadn't even thought of touching Disney with a 39 and a 1/2 foot pole, but it wasn't out of some reverence for the canon, but because the STYLE intimidated me. Now since I was little I had been influenced partially by Disney itself to like the villains more than the heroes. They were that much more fascinating personality and design wise, and I'm convinced apart from this that the Jafar and Jasmine scene in Aladdin might have done a number on me..! Born in 1991, I grew up on Beauty and the Beast, the aforementioned one, Snow White (my first Disney flick and one I apparently obsessed over), and... Lion King / Hamlet / Kimba the White Lion? Wasn't ever crazy for The Little Mermaid (oh not a fan of Ariel at all) but had fond musical memories of Ursula. I did get the chance to see Who Framed Roger Rabbit? from Touchstone, owned by! Disney by the way look it up, and this movie was a chaotic marriage of nerdy crossover and crime/mystery; here there was more freedom for the cartoons to get back to their non P.C. roots. Let's add more to this: I've enjoyed Hanna Barbera from the earlier Tom and Jerry MGM theatre! shorts to the "illustrated radio" shorts with the outsourced and limited animation some complain about (e.g. The Flintstones) but ultimately had been Cartoon Network's aid to fame before Warner Bros. took it over. I won't forget a mention of the Pink Panther theatre! shorts. My old History of Animation class has added much more to my appreciation of cartoons overall in exploring possibilities and styles from different cultures around the world. (Although I'm not the biggest fan of anime, I am so content in having watched anything by Satoshi Kon e.g. Perfect Blue, am an owner of the Now and Then, Here and There series directed by Akitaro Daichi that very few convention-goers and vendors know that it exists, and enjoy the Tenchi Muyo! OVA, among others). It cemented my conviction that Disney is not all that awe-inspiring and not that "holy" and, ultimately, the characters from Disney exist as figments of the imagination "given life" by their animators, owners and fans. ALL characters from ALL animation are sparks of imagination. With this in mind I can and do exploit whatever I want to in characters that interest me. But unlike some interpretations that try to water them down *e.g. villains* I preserve or even exacerbate their vile qualities given the situation. Situations that Disney cannot explore, and do wish that they wouldn't explore in the future. See, I respect the canon; I really like the canon. If there's a problem with my non-canon, based in canon, it had better be said in a way that is not charged with ad hominem assuming that I'm supporting or justifying themes in real life. I KNOW some themes are disturbing but that's not going to make me stop what I'm doing. Others have done worse and have gotten away with it (in images not writing which few people read). If I'm such a problem, get DA and Tumblr staff to ban me already. You'll be doing me a favor.

Want to do my own thing. Fan art gets the most attention.
A fellow student in my Figure Drawing class back in community college summed it up well, "You're turning your wheels but you're getting nowhere". Part of me hurt hearing that but in the artworld that is very true and I'm glad he told me that. (He's an amazing and experienced artist, but also humble and willing to help others). It helps to do fanart for the nerds (nothing wrong with that *is one*) and it is possible to make a living in selling said glorified fanart. But by the end of the day it stifles attempts to reach deeper inside and bring out other ideas that might not be deemed popular. Someone else I'm watching through my cracked139 account spoke another truth that I failed to put into words, paraphrasing, "this place is dominated by the 'cute' and the 'beautiful'". 'Ugly' or distorted art in comparison is usually overlooked, especially if it isn't fanart or a cartoony style--there is some wiggle room. Now I have shown examples of my figure drawing work and yes I am pretty good at it given the time and effort within the class setting but I have kept a tinge of decorative style within it, which works for some but not for others. Point is I'm good at observational drawing. But what I really enjoy is a purposefully geometric and simplified, hence distorted, style called Expressionism. (I threw out a stack of "Duality" business cards because it was obvious that I didn't know my art terms *facepalm*).  I'd like to explore this more in both the cartoon and 'fine art' form since I have all the materials I'll need for it, but I'm not using them as frequently as I should. Maybe both fanart and original work should get the special treatment, but ultimately I'd want to do more original work and focus on some long-neglected characters for a story I've been mulling in my head for years on-and-off: Je M' Appelle. This would be done mostly with digital mediums. Among other ideas, I do want to start a series called Disconnect which would be a collection of slightly satirical, non-chronological tidbits of personal life from the random to perhaps the more challenging. It seems this one would mainly be done with traditional mediums. A good bridge between fanart and original work would be creating concept art for song lyrics which I've already dabbled in. I'd love to dedicate myself to more of this but I am invested in fan stories as well; some fanfictions have not been updated because I feel I'm lacking in the knowledge of the source material (and its context time and place) or I'm simply not getting that spark of inspiration. MaxBradley is getting updated but on a different account for a number of reasons. That aside, refer to the title of this section; I feel stuck in between feeling content in my own world and pleasing others which would help me gain exposure. Should I then combine all of my accounts back into one? Is it too late for that now? It probably is.

At an earlier low time I considered removing my presence from the Internet completely.

Yep. It's actually near impossible to get to that point realistically because whatever happens on internet stays on internet. What I had in mind really was not being social online anymore pfft. I have forged relationships but I have lost others. The ironic thing was that the minute I had followed the implicit and/or explicit recommendation by others to become more outgoing and outspoken, I lost the support system that started to urge me on. I did delete a social site account because it had become too much and there was little point in staying for distanced family members since my folks already have virtual connections to them. Shaking the tree to see what would fall off is a good analogy; some leaves were easier to let go than others... For this I've become wary of getting too close to anyone and have few (supposedly) legitimate friendships online and IRL. It's for the best but I won't claim that it never hurt to lose others or to miss the opportunities to make new connections that could have been potentially fruitful. I'm not seeking to be emotionally challenging (I like to engage in intellectual challenges / cold debate) but apparently that's what I'm doing / have done to others when pushed to my limits and I'm sorry for having done that. Unfortunately there isn't a single thing I can say that will manage to avoid offending anyone. Chances are I will never remove myself from the net but it slightly disturbed me that I had a fleeting thought of it. Oh well.

Don't care sometimes despite doing well on the surface (not a threat of suicide).
At these times I don't care about anyone's criticisms or anyone's praise. Family, friends, acquaintances or strangers. I practically forget or distance myself from my past accomplishments or good personal elements saying in my head, "That's not me. I didn't do that." Outstanding GPA? Whatever. Good artist and writer? Oh? Ok. Whatever. Have the potential to be a nurse or a doctor or a psychologist, an art therapist, effective volunteer. Hard working and independent. Being told that I'm either a bitch or a great person. Contradictory accounts; can't be looping in and out of that for hours without getting tense and self-effacing. My brain gets tired. Don't care. In the motions. I'm just me. *hands in the air* I'm only here to work on my Bachelor's in Psychology (while dealing with my folks and people and related others) then Master's in School Counseling then get a job in Art Therapy to make money helping others and move on, alright? Sound good? Where's the damn cooler when you need one?? Nah, just burn the incense and breathe in the fumes. Doodle doodle.

I stop myself from progressing to do larger art business and being assertive about it; I compare myself to others which I should not be doing.

Have decided to go solo in the world of real-life intimate relationships.

Some energy has gone under; could just be the since-childhood chronic lack of sleep catching up to me lol
