Drawing your OC's!
Sup my dudes!

I will digitally draw your OC's for you! Note me photo references of your characters and any other important details regarding them and I'll draw them!

- No nudity/sexually explict themes
- Humans only
- I'll include a background relevant to the theme of your character if requested. Let me know in your note!
- The completed drawing I send you will be a nice, snug, 1500 x 2000 pixels. Let me know if you need it bigger/smaller.
- The OC will be drawn digitally, so it'll be easier for me to make modifications as per request. 
 

Come support an artist through college! woo!

I'll be attending college in 2018 for computer programming and art, and will then go into the video game industry, hopefully Naughty Dog or Sucker Punch!
Love you all!

So you just bought a new pencil, right? Or maybe you bought a whole box, but every time you sharpen them, the lead breaks and crumbles, leaving you insanely frustrated and ready to give up on everything. Do not fear - this is not your fault. When the pencils are shipped, they easily break and are easily affected by fluctuating temperatures in the shipping truck. 

Unfortunately, that means there's a 50/50 chance of you getting a pencil off the Hobby Lobby shelf that isn't broken. In this guide, I'll go over ways to help avoid pencils with damaged cores before purchasing, as well as details on the reason you came here - the title: Should you microwave your Prismacolors to repair them?

When you buy a boxed-set of these pencils, there's really no telling what you're going to get. They're packed in cozy plastic trays to minimize their movement in the box during shipping, but there's always the chance that someone dropped the box before it gets to you, and that can cause a whole world of hurt. If you are purchasing your colors individually from an outlet like Hobby Lobby where they are all displayed in small boxes on a shelf, here's a tip to help you lower the 50/50 chance to more of a 30/50. 

Look to the opposite end of the pencil you've picked (opposite to where you'd sharpen it. The colored core should be perfectly centered, and the wood surrounding it should not be two halves of different colors. These factors don't guarantee a perfect pencil, but the chances of you getting one that didn't have a manufacturing error are less when using these guides. I consider it a basic rule of thumb. 

Now, onto the microwaving.

I had never tried this until this morning, but had heard of it. I did some brief research and found that 20 seconds worked, though in hindsight I probably should have thought that over more. If you put a stick of butter in the microwave for longer than 15 seconds, it starts popping and hissing up a storm... So for whatever reason I thought microwaving wood and wax for twenty seconds was a good idea...

First and foremost - if you must do this to repair your pencil, I advise doing it very sparingly, and keep an eye on it the entire time. I put mine on a plate, and after five seconds, it sparked as the foil square with the color number on it burned off. Ten seconds later, there was a flash of flames inside and I yanked that sucker out. It caused the wood to split up the side, but I squeezed it together until it cooled down, and scraped off the ashes where it had burned. 

I believe it'd be much more successful and stressless to place them in the oven at a really low temperature. It may take longer, but at least you're not at risk of burning down your home. I don't think it'd cause any of the aforementioned problems that way. Just be extremely careful when testing this 'hack'. I would not recommend it, to be completely honest. You might have better luck leaving them in a sunny windowsill or running a hairdryer over them from a distance, or the oven trick. The microwave definitely isn't a safe route, especially if after ten seconds it looks like the Fourth of July in your microwave.

I hope this helps anyone who's been experiencing similar problems.

Apture House
I'm slowly but surely getting into concept art and storyboards. This one is inspired by a paranormal story I'm writing now. The character, Ash, is now a ghost after having been killed by her one true love in an effort to kill the shapeshifter that hunted them both. When she awakes as a spirit, she stands in front of the long-time abandonned farm house on Apture Road, waiting for the spirit of her other half to arrive.

I'll Follow You Into The Dark - The Last of Us
Inspired by Death Cab for Cutie's 'I'll Follow You Into the Dark' www.youtube.com/watch?v=NDHY1D… I felt the quote matched the game because the fireflies' message is 'look for the light' but they're a bunch of frauds so it's almost false light lol. And I feel like at this point, Ellie and Joel would follow one another anywhere, even if the outcome would be certain death. 

On that regard, I'm seriously excited for Part II to come out. I spent the past week playing remastered on Grounded + and just experiencing that game and feeling the atmosphere through the music and locations you visit, it's enough to die happy. I absolutely love this game. :) 

Credits (and major thanks) to Naughty Dog for creating this game and these amazing characters. I know they've impacted my life and millions of others, as well.

Lay Beside Me
"Lay beside me, under wicked sky
Through black of day, dark of night
we share this paralyze

the door cracks open, but there's no sun shining through
Black heart scarring darker still, but there's no sun shining through"

- Unforgiven II | Metallica

I don't know if anyone here can help me with this, but I am hopeful.

Yesterday I took a college tour of WNCC (Western Nebraska Community College) to check out their arts and computer science classes. I ended up learning that I need some pretty difficult math in order to do computer science, which is a major bummer for me because I need it for my dream job but I am terrible with math. 

I'm curious to speak with anyone who has studied computer science to get their thoughts on it. Was it difficult to manage? What did you learn? What career did you get into with your knowledge? And above all else - did you actually need math? 

Thanks!
Amanda Evert's Wraith Stone Choker - revised 2017
So this piece hasn't seen a revamp since it's initial create in 2012. I think the original is still up around here somewhere.

Anyways, this one is way more accurate (and the materials are better lol) I'm much happier with the result! Also, for any Amanda fans, or cosplayers, I have them for sale in my Etsy shop <3
