That was 6 months ago apparently. Have been on dA once or twice since I wrote that..

Anyway, I just realized (with help of GoldenDruid ) that I had several commissions promised to people. I never finished any of them, I think. I don't work well with things I 'have' to do and tend to put them off until people get really angry >.<

Soo.. if I promised to make/do/draw something for you, remind me. You can lie. I don't remember what I promised anyway, so you can TOTALLY take advantage of me here :D

I didn't get a lot of response on the previous journal, but I guess that's due to inactivity :P

I'll try and do better this time! <3
And unfortunately my subscription has gone to waste. Booh!

Anyway, I have cleaned up my inbox (12k messages, + about the same amount of group messages), and I'm terribly sorry if I haven't replied to yours. I'm also sorry for slacking off on my 'duties' (because I had other priorities, ha) and I don't think I'll be very active anymore. Depends whether you guys are still awesome!

This'll be a short message for now, 'new' work will come up sometime. :)

Message + feature!

Lullaby for the Lost
I loved to see you smile
I loved your shining eyes
I loved the way you laughed
I thought that you'd be mine
I loved the conversations
That kept us up at night
That we could disagree
But that we'd never fight
I loved the way you held me
Never wanted to let go
I loved the warmth you gave me
And wanted you to know
But now to you I'm nothing
And now we walk away
I never want to hear you
Or see the light of day
Now I hate your smile
I hate your lovely curves
I hate your soothing voice
I hate that I don't deserve
To live and laugh and grin
With you right by my side
Now I hate my wanting
And what you did decide
I hate that I still need you
I hate that you don't care
But if you change your mind
I swear that I'll be there
I know my words won't reach you
I know your mind is set
I know that I can't change you
But I can't just give up yet
I'll never be your "someone"
I'll only be your friend
But even knowing that
I'll want you 'til the end
I don't think that it's fair
I feel like I could die
If yo
:thumb168875515: Heart...I died the strangest death today
I watched my spirit fade away
Nothing to say, nothing to do
But still I just cannot blame you
Never thought I'd see the day
Where I would hear what I heard you say
Hate and sorrow veil my view
But still I can't stop missing you
I watch as dark rain clouds drift by
Let water drip and let out a sigh
The raindrops calm my darkest fears
That someone, like you, might see my tears
My voice shakes, cracking, when it sings
I soar on by with borrowed wings
Like some stitched-up lifeless bird
I live and breathe, but without a word
Would it help if I said I'm okay?
If I told you that I'm fine today?
It's just a lie, a "fake-smile" letter
But I'd send it gladly if you'd feel better
Day in, day out, but still no end
My heart has not the will to mend
But that's inside, as for without
You think I'm fine without a doubt
So go ahead, think that I'm fine
The inside rots, but the surface can shine
But you will know once I've withdrawn
That you don't know what you have unt

Oh, and I've got a message from SimonTheSwiper
She wants to go to uni in California, but can't afford it. therefore she's offering commissions!
It'd be awesome if you could check it out :)

  • Listening to: My mom blabbering on the phone
  • Watching: The dev's of the awesome people I featured :)
HOLY SHIT.

I was just about to go to my room on campus, from my parents. They live in Hengelo, I live in Enschede, it would be a 30 minute bike ride. However, before I left I noticed the sky was really dark, and I already saw on the radar that there would be quite a heavy thunder/rainstorm, but it wouldn't hit us til 16.00. So I hurried and went out, and after 30 seconds I saw a beautiful stormy sky, clouds moving quickly and twirling around.. that SHOULD'VE been a warning to me but I was fascinated.. I went on, and when I was near the shopping centre, a blast of wind almost made me fall of my bike. I stepped off, tried again, only to be wind and sandblasted again. I turned around and wanted to go back to my parents, when it seemed to clear a bit. I tried again, but with no effects; I couldn't even get in the right direction because I'd be blasted the other way.. in the meantime rain had started pouring down, but that was ok actually, it had been (over) 30 degrees so that was quite welcome. I went home eventually, after walking/biking next to tree branches that were moved as if they weighed nothing, a fallen tree, everything was airbound.. it was fascinating, yet scary. I got home, of course, completely soaked but unharmed. That later proved to be a case of luck.

:bulletblue:The train station of hengelo lost a part of its roof
:bulletblue:Trees had fallen onto houses and cars (apparently there's at least 1 death in Haaksbergen, from someone that was in their car when a tree fell on it)
:bulletblue:A roof went skybound and fell on the road..

and many more, on the festival De Zwarte Cross (will start the 17th) one or two of the tents went flying, resulting in several injured and complete chaos.

I'll try and find some photo's when I get to my campus home, everything's cleared up by now, but around 6 there's another storm to be expected..

UPDATE:
well, I got to my home. I counted 14 fallen trees, countless damaged trees and branches on the roads..

Some photos:
www.rtvoost.nl/nieuws/default.… (website of local channel)
twitpic.com/24nt7j (on twitter)
twitpic.com/24nstj (inside Metropool), a great venue in my hometown.. roof got ripped off:(

And some photo's I took with my cellphone on my way..

As announced in the UnseenArtists blog unseenartists.deviantart.com/b…, here is the first 'Shuffle' Feature, in which I will feature all kinds of deviations, centered around a theme. Please :+favlove: this news entry if you liked it :) This time the theme was fire (I recently joined FireFervor), and here are the entries:

and the last one, one which I wasn't entirely sure of whether or not I should include it in this feature:
CHARACTER SHEET - Hydren by JaRrOd123
by JaRrOd123
As much as I like the drawing, it doesn't have much to do with the fire theme. But since JaRrOd123 explained why I should include this (to quote, "I know there's no fire in the picture but she has got fiery red hair and a fiery personality!", and I do agree with that :)

To put an end to this feature: some *more* shameless self spam :giggle:

ps. if you have any ideas for the next theme, please send a comment/note/owl to me :)
