Whelp, yesterday was my last day of exams, so my hellish semester is over! *dances*- though, I'm not totally out of the woods since I have to register for an English course on Monday due to my errors on my part
So I'll have one class during the summer, I think 2 days a week until the end of July (if I understood the schedule correctly...cause something doesn't add up). I'm still a bit sour about the situation cause I wanted a complete summer AWAY from there lol...sometimes I feel fine, other times- GAH! I suppose I just need to be a weeks in and it won't bother me as much. I'm sure you guys would feel the same after a stressful semester no? I just wanna be left alone
So yeah, hopefully this class won't be deceiving cause I wanna DRAW (and earn some moneyz <o< ). And speaking of...I do have to get to things I owe such as contest prizes, collabs and a color commission I promised. Color is still not open, but I will take another 5 sketches for now then get sketching for SMB. I need some comics posted before September! Tis a must!
Thanks for having patience with me, guys. I'll do my best to get some reading material up

Lots of stuff to cover in this entry...
Happy New Year, everyone! I hope everybody had an awesome holiday, twas pretty good on my end, we just didn't get any snow for Christmas this year
Me, my bro and younger cousins mostly Smashed for Christmas eve/day, but also played a bit of Wii Bowling and NES Remix (got it for my bro, haha
) This Christmas I got a GC Luigi controller, two Amiibos ( Kirby and Luigi), Captain Toad, The Evil Within ( so awesome
), some gifts cards along with some cash, and wait for it- SOCKS! Every time I do laundry I keep getting less and less socks..it drives me nuts, so you have no idea how happy I was to get some new ones, haha. Augh, shame all this holiday stuff is over...it's gonna be pretty slow
With the holidays over that means I r haz to go bak to schewl
It opens on Monday, but with my schedule I get to go back on the 14th ( WOOP!
) Mondays are my placement days ( which I don't have yet) and no classes on Tuesday. This means I get an extra day for homework, and possibly some time for drawing you know what
But of course, school comes first, so it all depends on how much I get done and how much energy I have left to even start drawing. We'll see how this semester goes though, maybe it will work out better for me than first. Oh god, how I hate the placement binders
Commissions will continue, though they will be sketch only and I won't take a bunch at a time. Whatever I feel I can handle with this semester. I know there are some who are annoyed with me doing commissions, but I'm sorry, I gotta do them. I need some money while I'm in school, and with me having a hard time just doing the homework, it would be very difficult for me to juggle a job and school at the same time. Works for some people, but not me. So if the commissions bother you that much, I don't know what to tell you...unwatch me if you feel it's too much. I will still continue my art/comics at my own pace, I can't please everyone.
Comics 2 Life/Dubs/Contest
This Monday my friend, joesmith2k3
will be posting our first video dub, Super Mario Bros pg 50, as well as contest details for our Amiibo Instagram Contest.<da:thumb id="505708152"/> All details will be explained at the end of the video, which I will link back here later
Our voice actors will be JamesmanTheRegenold
, we are still waiting for our Princess Peach at the moment,haha. Though the dub we have now Luigi will be voiced by my friend, silvergage
. Due to how long the comic has been running though, we might
not do all the pages simply because they are extremely out of date...but if there is a high demand for it, we might consider starting it up from the beginning
Also, with these videos, I was thinking of putting MzM on hiatus, so SMB can be completed. Still not 100% on it yet, but I'll probably do more SMB for the time being.
Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy the video this coming Monday, and I really hope we get a good number people joining our contest as well

Been seeing a lot of these today, so I don't know, I guess I might as well join in for the fun of it, ha ha
Hmm, let's see, it all started when Mario, the princess and I went to Dinosaur Land for a vacation-
Anyways, back in 2007 and earlier in my teen life I would search up Mario art, comics, and cartoons ( Just about anything to get my fix lol. ) So I ended up following a few sites such as Lemmy's Land, The Koopatorivm, and The Mushroom Kingdom. They had some neat stuff, and at times not so great stuff. Like sprite comics...which I just couldn't stand
Twas very hard to find some good Mario comics during that time. The odd time though, I would try to look for Luigi and Daisy art, even fanfics ( gah, embarrassing -///- ) and as most ( from what I've read in their DA stories ) went to Youtube to look for some art. I found some music videos with the couple, and I looked through the comments to see where they were from. Surprise! DeviantArt had my fix!
The videos had art from LoveandCake
and others ( which I don't remember sadly ) then about a month or so, later I joined DA. I was inspried by LoveandCake
's couple artwork and overall style at the time, which led me to draw my small mini comic of Luigi and Daisy as little kids ( burn all my old stuff, BURN IT!! DX ) Although one of my bigger inspirations wasn't on DA, but on a Nintendo fourm. He happened to join DA a few months later, and that person was YoshiMan1118
Seeing his short comics inspried me to give my own ideas a try, since I was ( still kinda am ) shy about my work
Him and others like, TheBourgyman
( that " Mmm, fish " pic from the Koopatorivm XD ), wackko200
( big Koopaling inspiration ), SuperCaterina
, and even saiiko
, I kinda stumbled upon outside of DA and then eventually befriended here later on. Funny how things work
So that's my little story on how I joined the glory that is DeviantArt
I've gotten quite a few mentions of me in other people's stories, and I couldn't help but smile a bit. Since it was pretty much what I went through lol. Happy to know that my stuff got you guys to join
Happy 14th Birthday, DA

Hey, guys! Just here for an update on things. :3Comics:
As I said earlier in a previous journal, I would finish up 4 pages ( 2 from each series ) and start posting again. Well, SMB pg 50 is 2 panels away from being completed, so that'll be done this week. That doesn't mean that once it's done comics will go up. I have set a date to start again and it'll be on June 1st
. Each page will be posted on the first of every month ( provided I keep this pace going. ) I will put up a section on my profile for each pages update, so if you are one of those who ask and ask when these pages are coming out, I will not reply to you anymore. Don't bother to read, I won't bother to answer you. Current Style:
Lately I've been getting some I don't know, " complaints" or the general need to point out your preference of style on how I draw Peach and Daisy. Stop, please. It's okay to have a preference, but to keep pointing it to me is getting annoying. I draw the style I WANT/LIKE.
Not your preference. I personally didn't like my old style, so I wanted to improve on it. And quite frankly, it feels a little insulting when I'm trying to better myself and I get these remarks. I am not drawing my old style, simple as that. Critique if you want, but don't be rude about it. I will learn from my mistakes, and I'm proud of my current style/progress. Donations:
Currently this idea as been in my head lately, but I'm not completely up for the idea yet. Still need to think about it, so I won't say much for now. I will post a journal when the time comes.
Anyways, that's all I've got lol. Thanks for reading :3
