I'm definitely liking the new mobile version.

The journal layout doesn't quite fit if you don't rotate your screen. I tried on a Samsung Dart and the Galaxy SII. But at least now mobile only users can make journals without having to go to the full site. Which doesn't fit and takes forever to load when you're co-dependent on free wifi!

Submit art capabilities soon  please! Work out them bugs beta testers!!!

[edit] I found the spider that ran over my hand. Fucker ran across my monitor. He's dead now. I can't BELIEVE this thing touched me.

I--I'm going to get a VERY big glass of wine now ;;;;;8D!

I also ordered this: www.amazon.com/Spider-Not-Aero…

The first review is just classic XD!

The one that came outta the crawl space in one of the bedrooms in my house? Flew over me like it was conjuring up the bat signal? Well this isn't about bats this time. It's about spiders. It's August and Minnesota is confused about what season it's supposed to be in currently. A week back we had like 40 degree weather at night. I had to turn on my space heater. It's understandable that the planets creepy crawlers are a bit lost right now. It's about to be hot as chili powder on Wednesday and the bugs are just trying to stay cool while they give birth. I guess...

I just have to say... I'm cool with spiders. Most of the time I don't even notice them. I could say on some rare occasions I think the little weirdos are kind of cute. They chill in dark corners I can't see or won't even dare to look into. But my house right now, with my room in the basement? Yeah!

I. NOTICE. THEM.

One had the AUDACITY to run over my hand while I was holding my mouse. (I still need a shot of vodka after that shit). He was on my DESK you guys. Running over my papers (my ART! YOUR COMMISSIONS! OMG!) and like... then he HID from me. I'm still looking for his ass. I went to kill one above my closet and know what this one did? He JUMPED! He saw my shoe coming and just kamikaze-swan-dived off the freaking door frame. Who does he think he is? SPIDERMAN? I thought it landed on the floor but I caught it running around the corner of the door into the closet. It totally faked me out. Now I'm too much of a punk to go into my own closet for clothes... Earlier my dad found a mother spider and it's offspring drinking water from a puddle in the bathtub. Kodak moment? NO! They have invaded my personal space. It's war!

GUH, omg... What in the fu----! Okay... I'm good. They're just spiders. I'm bigger than them...

OMG I can't. I'm bombing my house TOMORROW. If I don't do something about them I might just have a freaking stroke...

And thank you for the white out tips. If only I could gesseo out these spiders. >___> ....Maybe I CAN paint over them!

Other than white-out? The BIC brand stuff works in a pinch but I can't ink back over it that well. They aren't lying that it dries quick either. It's starting to dry on the little brush after a few uses...

Suggestions? That aren't expensive :\... I'm learning to use brush pens (oooooooooo) and when I get irritated and full of rage because HEY BRUSH PENS ARE HARD TO USE, I'll use my BIC round stic instead. I don't know if it matters either but I'm using some cheap Targer brand of Matte printing paper. It holds onto ink EXTREMELY well. I need something that will go on smooth and hide my fail. Still... you know, it's oddly liberating to just make a stray line and not feel like the world is ending... My goal though, is to do minimal editing after scanning finished inks.

So suggestions GO!

Yo!

THE MEGA-UPLOAD HAS BEGUN...

So yeah, as mentioned like months back, I'll be uploading the hi-res files to send via NOTES and posting the pics on dA. This is going to happen over the course of a few days :3!

........

........

Then in September I'm debating opening up for a few commissions... *runs off!*

----

Works - Current published work:

Image Comics / Glory #23 - Indefinite / Colorist
www.imagecomics.com/comics/457…

Personal Website: www.destiny-makers.net/

Online Comic
Fungus Grotto / Artist-Writer
www.destiny-makers.net/fg_main…

----

COMMISSIONS: CLOSED But I'm debating opening up for some 10/15 for anyone interested!

Current list: Completed / Offline

A few things to consider before you commission me:

- Look at my GALLERY; nashya.deviantart.com/gallery/ (I really hope you did this before you sent money to me) and really take in the type of work I do. I will not try to emulate anyone other style for your commision. No matter how much art you buy.

- I draw 'pretty men'. So if you're okay with your Thor-like burly-he-man-character looking like a runway model or lovely elven/fairy creature, I'm the artist for you!

- As an artist I want to be able to capture the uniqueness that comes with all ethnic backgrounds. This is not easy for me and I have yet to find a way to do more varying physical features that match my style. Sometimes my own physical features might show through in your characters face. Unless you have EXACT references you want me to use, I apologize in advance if your character ends up with lips like mine or has my chubby cheeks and nose.

- I don't get commissioned to draw characters with varying body types much.  I was a gymnast and my younger brother is a boxer. I use him and myself as models. We're in pretty decent shape (well HE still is) so again please be very specific with physical features like this if your commission calls for it.

- I lean heavily towards pin-up character-design work... I tend to use my comics/personal projects to break away from that comfort zone but I'm willing to take some commissions that push me.

- I use a template like format. You'll notice this right away if you look through my gallery. It's a personal preference and I like the idea of my works layouts being consistent. It helps me stay focused on the central theme/character and not get overwhelmed by the limitless details I COULD do if I wanted to. I run into this issue the most with backgrounds. The more space on the canvas, the more I'll try to fill it up. This is counterproductive, irritating, and time consuming and I might end up with a broken Wacom tablet. The uniform layouts in theory, will also help me work quicker... T-that's my goal going FORWARD >__>;;!

-There aren't too many things I'm against drawing. Nudes, erotic nudes, maybe some blood and a bit of violence. So long as what's your commissioning isn't racially/sexually/religiously/or anything else-ly discriminative, hurtful, or disrespectful, I'll be willing to draw it. YES, even Furries. Though I'm not the best at drawing animals. I just can't promise to draw them well but I'll put my 150% into it.

Commission Details & Types;

One Character: Chest-up $40.00 - For details ordering a bust please see here: fav.me/d4gtv00

It weirdly doesn't feel like Christmas .___.;;. Despite my tree covered in decorations and gifts under it for my family. Maybe it's cause for once Minnesota isn't smothered in snow. LOL!

So, Merry Christmas!! I hope everyone has a great day. Celebrating or not just enjoy chilling out and watching all of those old classic Christmas movies XD!

I can't believe it's been a YEAR since like, all the drama with my old deprecate house >O>.... I love my new place. Lease renewal coming up. I'm staying here forever man. My computer died finally too. *sigh* I felt like I lost my best friend...

CG Commissions are complete! I keep looking at the list thinking I missed something... o@ I just, can't believe I'm finished. LOL! I'm planning a day to just upload commissions at the library on and off throughout the day as computers open up. I'm limited to 50 minutes each session and at three files at a time, each being just under 350dpi, Sendspace struggles... (I'm also convinced the library is still using dial-up, GUH).

Hit me up by email if you have questions. Still on my cellphone-net!

LOL, and as far as ART, the comeback is coming ^O^!

Later!

ANIME DETOUR this weekend! www.animedetour.com/

I'm in Artist's Alley (no idea where since we pick our tables on the spot after badge pick-up) and I'll have the usual goodies and a few new things this year. Most specifically, tote bags and charms featuring characters from my online comic Fungus Grotto. You can see some of the charms here: www.destiny-makers.net/goodies… .  Lamely though I won't have any copies of the book. I'm still undecided on a printer for the collected edition. I will have some single issues for the first five chapters though and a pre-order list for the trade. I don't have much new art since a bulk of my work is all commissions and comic pages >__>;! But feel free stop by and say "What up!".

I MIGHT also have access to a computer with the internet. I'll have my USB drive with me and maybe I'll try to upload something here. It's been forever. ;o; I miss you guys!

[edit]@___@;;; I found another box of prints... Okay I'm going to unload some of these babies now. I can't figure out why I made so many... I'd prefer if you commented on what print you want. Notes takes FOREVER to load/type in on my phone for some reason. Just list the one you want, I'll know what you mean. Keep in mind; what you see is what you get. These are basically premade sets of prints that I already have in stock.

Paypal only for now. I'm too nervous about money orders getting lost with me moving soon. Even with a forwarding address.

- Paypal: masterdayhawk[at]hotmail[dot]com

- Shipping US: $5.00 INT: $7.00

- Make sure you put your current address.
   
And if for some reason (insane) anyone decides they want all of these, excluding Set 03, it's $115 and shipping would be US $10/INT $12. Thanks in advance!

Set 02:

Set 03:

Anyway, the previous prints are all mailed off. Watch out for them :D! Speaking of prints, I found these sitting on my server the other day. I wanted to have them for Anime Detour and Anime Central and possibly Oni-Con (not going to it now) but I never got all the sets together in time. Then while packing I came across my convention stuff. I didn't realize I had such a huge stock of prints. A big majority of it is fanart too. I don't do much fanart anymore since I'm mostly focused on original projects. I really don't want all of these prints either. So I'm debating selling them (and possibly just giving them the hell away ^^;;) for the sake of not having to move with them. This is an example of what the print sets will look like.

Also shipping is kinda expensive and I'm not willing to go out of the way to mail single prints anymore. It's too much work. I need to find out what the shipping will be so I can factor that in too. So yes... I figure with the holidays coming nice print sets like this would be nice.

God I need a better cell phone. Typing journals takes forever...

Sorry for any typo's. On dA mobile.

Shin Chan season 1 is running in the background as I pack. If anyone's ever seen this show you should know it makes me very, very happy. Having to move doesn't so feel stressful or depressing when I'm cracking the hell up.

You know how moving makes your realize how much shit you have? I realized that after filling four 18 gallon totes with books. These things: www.target.com/Sterilite-18-ga… , cept mine are a cute neon orange. But yeah, comics, graphic novels, books, and magazines... Guwaah, heavy! I can barely scoot them across the floor... I feel sorry for my dad and brothers since they're the ones moving all this downstairs, to the truck, and up the stairs at my new place ^^;;. God, all of these BOOKS. I know I haven't touched half of them in what's got to be nearly four years. I barely remember buying some of them! I need to run inventory and like sell/donate some of these. I don't really like having a lot of stuff to move but I'm going to end up with like 10 of those tote things...

Oh, I finally got the formal eviction in the mail and the nice summons to court. I was waiting for this. I don't wanna be ego-tastic just yet, but my landlady has kinda really screwed herself inviting me in front of a judge with all the shit wrong with this house. Worst case scenerio; I'll have to move, which I will be moved long before we meet, and they might make me pay her the withheld rent, which I used to pay for my new place. I don't know if that was the right thing to do but hey, bitch told me to get out. She can demand money all she wants, she won't be getting it any time soon.

Still MIA but I got the chance to bum some internet. I think things are okay now but I don't know when I'll be back. I hate setting dates because something always steps in like "HA! NOT ON MY TIME!". Anyway...

First good news: For anyone that reads my online comic Fungus Grotto, there's info about the trade/graphic novel/collected edition here: fungus-stuff.livejournal.com/2… . Support FG XD!

I still need to mail out prints from what? July? I couldn't get everyone's addresses XD;;;. I'm getting them now though. Thanks again for being patient. CG Commissions are done. Again though no net to upload them :. I wish I'd know I was going to have some net access time today. Again, thanks for being patient <3333.

dA needs a 'journal cut' option. You don't have to read this but I figure some details never hurts XD;;. I'm mostly posting about this because I never want this to happen to anyone else. As a renter, you have rights. Know this, and if you're ever not sure, go here: www.tenantresourcecenter.org/t… and here (though this is specific to Minnesota: www.tenant.net/Other_Areas/Min…

Anyway, this is the, one of the, "Life's being a bitch part"; I'm moving on the 1st of October. I KNOW right? AGAIN? This wasn't planned. I HAVE to move. See, the house I'm in now had a few cosmetic issues that my dad and I fixed. It wasn't until winter that we realized it had some major internal needing to be fixed shit. Like the electrical wiring. Things we can't fix. I kept thinking about moving but I was in a year long lease. After reading up on how breaking a lease could have horrible consequences, (seriously, you  might have to pay the rent until your property manager finds a new tenant?) I stuck it out. Moving isn't easy. Once I pay rent I'm broke again until ... hell the next month?

So the furnace died three times in the dead of winter. It was so cold in the house we had to camp out in the living room with electric heaters for nearly a week until the gas company came and replaced the furnace FOR us. Then spring came and rain flooded the basement. It flooded high enough to put out the pilot light in the hot water heater! We fixed that as well as we could. Here's the kicker, my landlady wanted to sell this house to me this summer and she and I made a list of repairs and additions before I agreed to buy. She never followed through and I declined in the end. My mortgage would have been a good $300 less than what I pay in rent too. Shit has gone downhill from there. Summer and the 90+ heat everyday is what really told me the horrile shape this house was in. I kept getting sick. Like allergy sick. Then my cat got insanely ill. I thought he was going to die. He's a Siamese and I noticed his blue eyes were green one day. His skin had turned yellow. A visit to the vet confirmed he had like, fungal growths in his stomach and intestines. He recovered but they told me it could happen again. I didn't know what I was supposed to be looking out for though...

Then I caught my other cat drinking water in our basement... I used to spray bleach in the corners do try and fight what I thought was the smell of mold (as per instructions from my landlady) and I thought maybe that's what made my cat sick... It wasn't the bleach. It's mold. Black-mold. The kind that kills people. This stuff takes a LONG time to infect houses so my guess is it's been here since before I moved in. It's infesting the entire basement (and we think it's in the walls) and I can't get it under control. It's actually not my job to do this either. When the inspector came he walked around the parameter of the house and was like "I can smell it from here..." @__@;;. Not just that, several of my outlets have caught fire. The bats keep coming back. I caught three more of them and animal control came to get them and suggested moving... My landlady knew about all of this and made promises, in writing, to fix these issues. I withheld rent this month until she follows through and she came by with threats to EVICT me within three days of rent-due day passing. She hasn't so much as visited this house since December but I don't pay and she shows up? I told her she wouldn't have to evict me because I'm moving. She agreed this would be 'best'. So SHE broke the lease so now I can move without fear of her wanting the withheld rent. So she was going to give me time to find a place but while I packed and moved she wanted to suddenly come in and start making repairs...

Then it hit me... Was my money not good enough to warrent repairs? I've lived here over a year and she hasn't so much as fixed a door knob but she wants to when I'm leaving? Not only that, she claims my damage deposit was spent but can't tell me where it went. She hasn't fixed anything! *bitter laugh*. FUCK THAT. I called the Tenants Association and Legal Aid (this is free legal services for broke people like me) and an inspector and there's a huge health code violation deal going on. I KNOW my rights as a tenant and she has got me majorly fucked-up. She wanted to come by while I was at work and I sent her a nice email about the details. She showed up 15 minutes later and looked like she was gonna have a heart attack. My challenge to her "unscrupulous business management" has her terrified. She went as far as to ask me "When can I have my property back?" in this shakey voice. The woman will go to jail and lose her license to rent. I don't know if I'll win if this goes to court, like money wise (which I don't really care about) but I refuse to let her do this shit to anyone else again.

Heh, I almost feel bad for her.

So yeah, the life of Tia XD! Still though, stressful :. My new apartment won't be ready until 10/01. I want to move NOW. Ever since I found out about the mold I've had nigthmares about dying from it getting in my lungs or something...

So yeah... Real life's being a bitch, but I got this!

Be back soon :3.

I need to get this out of the way while I have the motivation. Feel free to ignore if it doesn't relate to you.

CONVENTION STUFF: I think con season is over for me... I'm debating going to Oni-con in October. That's in Texas. Just reading the site and trying to comprehend how this con might work has me sort of irritated. Hotel, time off work, and plane tickets are an issue too. We'll see :3.

COMMISSION STUFF: CG COMMISSIONS ONLY: Buwah, omg almost done with them all. I'm going to gradually start sending them out via NOTES after I upload them to sendspace. I'm on dial-up so uploading the hi-res files takes a ba-jillion and one years. If you have a COLOR COMMISSION you will have yours by the end of August. No matter how long ago I took it. LOL, I get asked this a lot so I wanted to clarify.

If you have a SKETCH commission I'll be noting you soon regarding a few things. Thanks!

EVERYTHING ELSE STUFF: Print orders from the 07/19. Thanks so much again for ordering ^O^! I'd have been poor at Comic-Con without your help! I underestimated how many orders I'd get and I ran out of everything I had left from the cons. Everyone's orders are half filled. The printer wasn't finished before I left and they too were getting things ready for Comic-Con. Apparently everyone was mad dashing to get stuff done until a few hours BEFORE preview night on 07/21... I have to pick up everything on Saturday and mail stuff out then.

Ka-Blam, who prints mine and many other online comics, was hacked. They're fixing what sounds like a shit load of annoying html and php code damage to their Indyplanet and ComicsMonkey sites, so they are super behind too. This is why the site has lagged and people were getting those false browser warnings or whatever. If you tried to order my comic in the last week and couldn't get through this was why. On top of printing what had to be a landslide of books for Comi-con, I can only imagine how stressful this has been. Hang tight for anyone that ordered :3. You can read more about this here; ka-blam.com/printing/front/?p=…

FUTURE GOALS: To finish commissions and sleep and get a job drawing comics.

August is next week and I couldn't be happier. Summer is just ASS. HMPH!

BUWAH!!! Okay I'm damn tired. I've slept maybe 6 hours in the last four days cause I was too wired and excited and awestruck to relax.

Anyway, I'm back and I had so much DAMN FUN! OMG! I met so many people and saw so many things. Artists I've admired and friends I've talked to only through AIM for YEARS finally have faces! I met JO CHEN and took a pic with her and she was so NICE! I GOT TO SEE SAM AND DEAN (Jared and Jenson of SUPERNATURAL) and cheer like a retarded fangirl! They were so close I could almost smell them *__*.

Everything was just overwhelmingly awesome! I don't even know if I'll get to post about it all cause I never finish con posts but DUDE I cannot wait for SDCC next year! GOOD THINGS COMING! I will mention that I had a portfolio review with Random House / Del Ray and I might have me a JOB YO! Actually DRAWING comics with a real company and getting a check for it XD! Wish me luck.

In the mean time, I need to sleep and hope that two hours won't cause me any real jet lag. This was my first time taking a long flight. About 3 1/2 hours and I was fine getting there but i nearly puked when we descended due to my motion sickness ^^;;;. As soon as we touched down and could start getting luggage I had to rush to the restroom all "BLURGH" with my hand over my mouth D:. Never eat Mcdonalds before a flight.

For now, I must bask in the afterglow of this amazingness. I have like $200 worth of free books to read too >O>!

On top of Comic-con I'm preparing myself for my mom going to have surgery YET again after I get back. She's freaked and reluctant and hopefully this is the last one. Spinal surgery. Pretty hardcore evasive stuff. She'll be down for a good six weeks. Serioulsy thankful for medical leaves of abscense right now despite the paperwork being a total pain in the ass. Blah.

In commission news. I have about 12 more CG commissions to go. Many of which are busts from January. I'm ALMOST finished with EVERYTHING! *sobs*

I was born XD!

Guh... I'm officially 4 years away from 30 now! *kinda freaked out*. I learned a lot during year 25. *rubs chin* But I still feel like a kid sometimes. In anycase, good stuff is happening this year! I just need to stay focused and move forward ^O^!!

Thanks in advance for the bday wishes ^^! :heart::heart:

Is SO not cheap. *dies a little inside*

It's the 7th... 11 days until my 26th bday and less than two months to work and save up for a plane ticket.  At this rate I'll probably have to work nearly 60+ hours of overtime at work (okay more like 40 but still...) to save up enough to pay for ticket to the San-Diego Comic Con... I'm watching out on Cheap Tickets and Orbitz for the best rates. So far my trip is up at $385 (not including hotel) *grips stomach*. Any other ticket places I can watch? Does the Megabus go to Cali XD;;?

Going to have to do a sale of all the stuff I have left from the cons soon... >_>;;;. So who wants to buy some prints and stuff? Nothing is over $10 XD;;;.

Um... keep an eye out. I'll probably end up doing the print sale. (There's tote bags and charms and such too this time).

Thank you so much for the suggestions XD! After much debating and thumb twirling I gave in and um... "purchased" a copy of PS CS2 and used my own serial number. I didn't think it'd work. I was under the impression each copy came with like, an imbedded serial number so only THAT copy would work with it's own you unique serial. I felt guilty at first... :. But now that I'm coloring again it's like "TCH! TAKE THAT ADOBE!" So the crisis has been averted. LOL! I love how things are so BAD and I get majorly emo and then a few days later things are okay. It always amazes me.

And about the bats. I called animal control and they went into the crawl space and discovered it was actually a nest of baby birds. I kept hearing this muffled cheeping noise and the flapping of wings so I just THOUGHT it was bats. I have no idea how baby bats sound... After listening a bit more to the flapping of their wings it sounded 'soft' and not 'leathery'. But yeah there was a mother Robin and some chicks in there. Guh they were so cuuuuuuute! Ungh I wanted to keep them XD! Animal Conrol put them in this big tree in my back yard and my landlady sent out some roofers to seal those holes in. So I think it's all good now. I thought the mom-robin would try to attack the AC folks after they let her go but she just hopped into her nest and huddled really close to her chicks.

OH and some big news! I'm going to the San-Diego Comic Con this year XD!!! It'll be my first time ever going to California, flying that far, and attending this con. *feels nerves seize up* After LannySu:heart::heart: told me how to apply for a pro-badge I went through the steps and got approved for one XD! Ungh I was SO worried I mailed my proof off too late. It's a bit of a process. I was kinda surprised by how much published work I've done over the years. I should really list that somewhere... And it kind of feels weird having someone validate ME as a pro XD! So I'll be there in MAXIMUM tourist mode! *preps disposable cameras*!

8D... Thank you Photoshop CS2 disc for NOT working. Thank you for letting me spend $500+ ON you, register you, keep you in a box surrounded by foam in a cool dry place for the last 3 years, and after only installing you ONCE EVER you won't F****************************G WORK the second time I EVER take out of the box. [livid/tired/wants vodka]

Call tech support they said... *blinks slowly*. I guess I could try this... But it's the DISC. Not my computer. Everything else I put in my CD-ROM drive worked JUST FINE. I doubt they'll replace it after all this time. I'm going to try to run it on another computer. Maybe it IS just me...

Anyway, outside of this crisis (no really it IS a crisis. 98% of everything I do artistically is done in Photoshop) reformatting is amazing :D! My computer feels/sounds/works like it's brand new. It doesn't feel like I'm trudging through the desert in wet sand in boots made of metal anymore just opening a file. So everything is right in Tia's artistic world.




Accept for Photoshop.

*Throws the whole box it came in across the room.* I GUESS I could download the trial of PS CS5 (wow I should probably updgrade. Once I get $200 to do so....) and attempt to work for 30 days straight before the trial expires. Dude. There's always something isn't there. Guh... I'll be okay. I have Painter and I can work in there but the interface is not so great for working on comic pages or using lots of layers. At least to ME it isn't. I'll feel better about this after I sleep and call tech support too.

Oh and the bats nashya.deviantart.com/journal/… are back... XD;;.
