World of Warcraft Cataclysm

My dad showed me this intro video today. He said it appeared when he was trying to get to the login screen of World of Warcraft. I thought it was so cool so I wanted to try and find it on youtube to put on my blog.
I can't wait to see what the game's going to look like when Cataclysm comes out.

365 Postponed!

I'm sorry!

For this week only, I have something I need to do, maybe next week as well, I'm not sure.
But for this week I know for sure I'll have to hold off on the 365 Day Drawing Project.
I'll post the reason later.

Dream: Searching...

Before I forget my dream because of being distracted by TV and or other things, I'm going to write it down of course. I just woke up so I can't forget THAT easily, can I?

What I remember so far is that, the setting took place at my house. There was my parents I know that, then friends started coming over. A friend I felt I had just met came over. I'm not sure how I met her since she was just a friend in my dream, while another friend came over a as well asking if I could hang out. I felt a little guilty and told her another friend was over but she didn't care. I thought this was weird, considering it was one of my best friends Jackie. She came in saying she needed to use my computer which I directed her towards my mother's computer. My other friend which I think her name might have been something like Sam or Jenny was playing games on the TV in our play room. I had to go out and help her turn the game on at some point though. After doing that, I sat out there kind of hanging with her. In the background I could hear someone arrived. It was my uncle from my dad's side. He was helping my mother renovate our living room a bit and the kitchen. We had pieces of our tile missing from the floor in the kitchen. My uncle and mother put down other random pieces to fill in the spots but it looked really iffy afterwards when Sam and I walked through to go in to the living room. Our living room looked weird. It looked similar to what I have now, but larger and the master bedroom was on the other side of the house instead now. Because it was like, you walked through an arch way in to the master bedroom or an extra room all together with a bathroom on the left side of the room. One where you walk through past the closet then you hit the bathroom.

Afterwards, more people started showing up at my house. Mostly family, even if I didn't know them, I knew they were family somehow. That gut feeling you could say. It felt like someone's birthday or something. I don't know who's, I think it was my grandfather's. Or maybe it was great grandfather? Anyways, we kids were opening presents for him since he didn't really care, until one of us opened a certain present where it was like a peculiar looking dome that told you facts. Like It was the size of both my palms together and was at least 4-5 inches high. Facts rotated around within it, telling us stuff as we watched it, but at some point, it felt like we were supposed to find something. I'm not sure if my grandfather told us something, but at some point we were out of the house and heading towards somewhere. It felt like a moment out of the movie National Treasure.

Heading out, my family and friends either took their own cars or smooshed together in to one. I was with some guy that I knew. It might have been Anthony but I don't remember. We were heading over to my other guy friend, Sweb's house to pick him up or something. When pulling up in his driveway, he was backing out of it with Andrew. Me and the guy waved to him and then backed out after them to start driving towards out destination. We got on a busy road that looked like it was over on the beach not too far from where I live, but there was a bit a difference, since there were more newere shining buildings on the beach side of the road.

That's about all I can remember, because after we got back on the road, I woke up.
This dream has been the most vivid out of the last few dreams I've had. I wonder why?

Day 12: Phineas

Phineas from Phineas and Ferb off the Disney Channel.
Watching the show this morning and thought I would try out a new style after looking up some art by the well-known Bleedman on Deviantart.

[ This character does not belong to me. It belongs to the creator of the show Phineas and Ferb. ]

Dream: School with a dash of Survival.

I had a dream last night, or well not really last night but more today while I slept until the afternoon. My friend called me waking me up which of course when someone just wakes me up from a dream, I remember more of it. Before I forget it, I wanted to type it up.

The dream started off like a test of survival. I was with another person who happened to be a guy in my dream. I'm not sure if he was someone I knew in real life or just made up by my mind. More likely option two. The setting was something like, a gorge? It looked to me like there were no plants to be seen, like it was a wasteland. There was a river flowing below that looked to be only 10-20 feet down. People were trying to figure out how to survive in this wasteland on one side of the river. The guy and I wandered off trying to search for something that would help or we were just trying to see if we could get to the other side. We found a small pass to get to the other side but it didn't look safe. I got half way across and the thing started to crumble underneath me. I ran to the other side which I felt worried that I'd be stuck over there on my own until we went a bit further and found a more stable way across. Even farther than that was part of a rock wall where there were two large boulders blocking the path but there was still a bit where you could walk through. The guy walked on while I stayed behind like he told me. I wasn't sure what to do, I tried going after him then change my mind and ran back.

That's when the scenery changed. I was on a school bus I think? We were heading on a field trip somewhere until we finally got there. When we were inside it was like we were in my house, but it was a little different. Everyone was hanging out in the backyard. I felt much like a loner. Like no one really wanted to hang out with me. Then it just became unusual. It was like a battle between trees? The other students were climbing up in to large tree's. One that was in the back yard of the building we had come to, while the other was in the neighbors next door. This part though while they were all heading to their tree's, I noticed a person that looked familiar. An old crush who I liked for a couple years.
It's been a while since I've seen him in any of my dreams. I wonder why I saw him?

Day 11: Hello

Making up for missing yesterday's drawing. Sorry.
She says Hello.

Day 10: Man Practice

I am horribly horrible HORRIBLE at drawing males. I drew this without a reference. I kind of just....winged it. How'd I do?

And I just realized..... His arm looks like a squids arm. SORRY! Told you I fail miserably.

Pika Hoodie

A pikachu hoodie idea. It's an idea for a present for a friend of mine.
You'll see soon if I ever start drawing it. I don't have too many days to make it. D:

Day 9: Chained Heart

Oh my gawsh. D:
I can not draw anatomy to save my life. I'm somewhat good at females but what's going to happen when I get to the male body?
I know what, I'm going to fail horribly.
This is what reading too many romance manga's does to you.
So sorry.

Day 8: Fiery Passion

A conversation with a friend earlier this evening sparked a drawing like this in to my head. I wish it was a lot better and I'm sorry my drawings the past several days have just been crappy. I'll try to do more detailed pictures in the future!

Dream: Don't go in to the basement!

I had a dream last night, or well, somewhere about 24 hours ago. I'm a little late on writing it down but I just remembered a bit of it not too long ago. I don't know what reminded me. Oh wait, I do. It was the silence in my house. I closed my laptop, the thing that was making the most sound because of the somewhat silent fan going on in it and my typing of course. When I did, it went dead silent in my house. Nothing could be heard, which made me uneasy. So then, the memory of my dream popped in to my head and I thought, "I need to write it down on my blog." And here I am now. Anyways, the dream...

My memory fails but what I can remember is that it was a cloudy day. The sun wasn't shining brightly, so it had to be cloudy. I was with some people. I don't think they were my family or anything, but they were helping me. It was like we were trying to escape something. I'm not sure what. The first place we drove to was the woman said was an underground bunker? What was going to happen? I'm not sure, but something was coming. Next thing I know is we're at their house. A two story house with a basement. It's like something was after us or the children of the family. I can't remember I was there or it was like watching a movie, but someone broke in to the house. Someone came in to the house. A dark figure.
He was after us, or at least he was after the children. We were huddled in the living room. Or at least a couple of us were. The young girl was upstairs in the bathroom. I saw the bathroom door open next and she's with a guy. They're both half naked. I don't know what's going on or what they were doing but her mother started yelling at her.
Next thing I know I'm back in the living room. I had just seen the dark figure in the hallway near the front door and he went running. Someone said he had gone down in the basement. I tried to yell out, "Don't go down there! It's a trap." But the little boy wouldn't listen to me. He headed towards the basement. I remember darkness afterwards, then I woke up.
I'm not sure what the dream meant but I think it might have had something to do with the fact my dad was watching a horror movie at the time in the living room and I could hear. It was something on AMC I believe. I don't want to know what he was watching because I think it caused my dream.

Who was that dark figure anyways?

Day 7: Play Me a Song

Just got done watching the movie Only Yesterday. Listening to the ending song made me want to draw something with someone playing an instrument. I'm also at the moment listening to Studio Ghibli songs played in Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, and others. It's quite soothing and relaxing.

Day 6: Burning In To Your Soul [Part 1]

Been watching Arnold Schwarzenegger movies lately. Terminator obviously being one of them. Thanks to my friend, I was able to watch the second Terminator or at least half of it. I'm still working on the other half. Maybe I'll watch it as I try and complete this drawing.

I'm not sure if this drawing will be finished by the end of the day on Sunday or I shall just mark it as a two day drawing, but I want to finish it at some point. I didn't think my shading job would look all that good in the eye itself. It came out well and I can't wait to do the other eye. Wish me luck on this drawing.
Hope you guys like Terminator. ;D

The Cat Who Sniffed Glue by Lilian Jackson Braun

My preference of books to read would have to range from Mystery to Science Fiction. Most others I'm not too fond of but I will read if it highly interests me. And when I mean highly, I do mean HIGHLY. I'm quite picky with books. The first book I read from start to finish that I rather enjoyed was The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King. When reading it, it was like it took me off to another world. The world inside the book itself. Like I was a small bug or spirit following the young girl lost in the woods around. When the book was able to make me feel like that, that was when I knew I really liked it.

It wasn't until I got in to high school where I started to read more books like The Cat Who series by Lilian Jackson Braun. I'm sorry I'm not starting on the first book of the series but the one I just recently finished. Anyways, enough of my rambling. Here's my outlook on the book itself, or well more, what the book's about really.

The book starts of slow with the main character Qwilleran going about his every day life like usual. Talking to Francesca, Captain Brodie (The police chief)'s daughter about interior design being done in his apartment and also attending theater practices weekly for an upcoming play. One evening though, a young couple were murdered in their home, shot to death.
Qwilleran, being the detective he is just had to get out there and investigate. After some time and investigating though, the police after certain circumstances (which I don't want to spoil) put the case to rest because they BELIEVED they caught the killer(s). Qwill on the other hand didn't think they did and that the killer was still out there at large.

Through the story there were times I was yelling in my mind thinking, "THAT CAN'T BE HAPPENING!". Qwilleran happens to get in an accident, but was it really an accident or was someone out to get him? But with him in the accident were his two feline friends, Yum Yum and KoKo. Did they make it? What happened to them?

You'll just have to read the book yourself and find out.
I do like this series by Lilian Jackson Braun. I've been reading these books for over a couple years now and I just can't put them down. I may end up reading something else but I always come back to these books since I know I need to finish them. It helps though if you read them in order, then you're not like, "Wait, when did that happen??"

Day 5: Ignite The Light

"You just gotta ignite the light,
And let it shine.
Just own the night,
like the Fourth of July."

Firework by Katy Perry.

When I first heard this song, it made me feel all tingly inside and I just wanted to listen to it over and over again like I do with other songs. I didn't, thankfully. Though now I am, sadly. It's a good song, so I wanted to draw something relating to it. It's such a pathetic and horrible drawing, I'm sorry. But it's all I could come up with in such a short amount of time since the day has already passed and gone by.

I was busy watching movies like Astro Boy and Terminator 2: Judgement Day earlier that I didn't draw my drawing of the day. I'm really sorry.

Day 4: Hello Mr. Kitty

OMG, when it comes to drawing non-chibi, I horribly fail.
What is up with that?
Actually, never mind. I fail at drawing just regular people.
That's what I'll have to practice the next couple days.

Anyways, this is yet again Lily.... I think.
She's blushing over Mr. Kitty. Maybe he's hitting on her?

Day 3: Don't be shy...

Lily once again. This time in purple. I didn't have time to erase some of the skeleton lines but I still wanted to post it. Don't want to be missing a day, even if it's the third day.
She's shopping? Talking to a boooyyyyy?? Something's got to be making her shy.

The Wolf Totem

All thanks to Humon's Totem Animal drawing, I've been wondering what my totem might be.

I tried to do what Humon said in her journal, but I just couldn't get that relaxed state of mind and venture on my spirit walk. Things in my house kept bothering me or my mind just wasn't at complete relaxation. So in my attempt to find my totem animal, I tried looking online for a solution. Coming up with ways to relax, ways to journey on my spirit walk, and then of course those quizzes asking, "What's your totem animal?"
In desperation, I tried doing one of those so called quizzes. This one seemed not too bad. It only had four answers you could choose from and 19 questions, bu what the heck? Why not try it? So I did.
My results were something like,
53% Wolf
21% Deer
16% Eagle
11% Bear

I was like, "Alright. Not bad." Though it felt wrong, considering I'm not going on the usual spiritual walk to find my animal totem. I'm relying on the internet and their wacky quizzes to find it instead. I at least went around online trying to look up what the wolf symbolizes. On my quest to find information, I remembered something.

When I was young, like many other kids, I had imaginary friends. My cousin claimed she saw unicorns which was like her imaginary friends, while I saw wolves or a wolf to be particular. I can't remember if this was before or after I had seen the movie Balto, but I had always imagined wolves. Up until I was in junior high school. Even though I usually tell people I'm not much of a dog person and that I love cats, I've always adored wolves. They're just a creater I've looked up to since I was small. Strong, fierce, and just have a way of peering in to my soul.
While thinking of my totem animal, I thought, "Maybe a wolf COULD BE my totem animal." I just had to make sure and find out what a wolf really signifies.

This is what I've found far....

The Wolf

The wolf is a great teacher, helping you to find the answers within yourself and help to develop your intuition. It is the representative of deep faith and profound understanding. Possessing high intellect, it has been observed using strategies about hunting, habitat and migration.
These creatures are swift, cunning, and powerful. They are said to have special relationships with his two-legged brothers and sisters. Also having human qualities like us, wolves are loving, loyal, and care about friendship.

I believe these animals just like any other are able to feel just what we feel. Love, happiness, sadness, pain, and any other emotion. If my totem animal really IS a wolf, I would love that just because I believe wolves are such strong, courageous animals that have another side that's compassionate. I would be proud to have a totem animal like this. First, I have to go on a spiritual walk, if I'm able to one day. Just to really find out what my totem animal is.

If any of you have gone on that spiritual walk and know what your totem animal is, please leave a comment saying what yours is. I'd like to hear what it is and what it symbolizes. C:

30 Seconds To Mars

A couple songs by the band 30 Seconds to Mars.
The first is called Closer to The Edge. I just heard it today and I already love it.
The second is Kings and Queens. This one I heard for the first time a while ago and I've loved it ever since.
I try not to listen to it TOO many times so I don't kill myself with it. I want to be able to savor the song for as long as I can like I have with a few other songs I've known since I was little.
When I listen to Kings and Queens, the feeling is as if I want to fly. Or as the video shows, ride my bike? It just has somewhat of an uplifting beat to left, where I just want to get up and face the world with everything I've got. Even when I fall down, I just need to get back up and try harder than I did before.

For Closer to The Edge, I'm not exactly sure what feeling I get from that. Considering I've only listened to it once on the TV. Even then I wasn't fully paying attention so I just had to look the video up after it had ended. After posting it on Facebook, I thought, "Hey, why not post it to the blog as well?"
And so here I am now, showing you people what I like in the music department.
This song, Closer to The Edge by 30 Seconds to Mars, I'm listening to it again and trying to get a feel for the song. It makes me want to not regret anything. What happens, happens. We can't help what life throws at us. We just have to deal with it and push through it. Yeah, you can complain of course, but that isn't going to help. What's happening to you or anyone in the world is happening and we can't help it. We can only put up against us. What happens to us just makes us stronger, right?

There you have it, a few songs chosen by myself for your enjoyment. Hope you like them, if not then that's alright. Just means you're not really in to that type of music. C:

Day 2: Sleepy Lily

Again, this is Lily.
I wonder if I should come up with the bio for her, so I can put it in the next drawing. C:

All I'd have for now off the top of my head is...

Name: Lily
Height: 5 foot 11 inches
Hair Color: Light purple (Though still deciding)
Eye color: Dark purple
Race: Cat

I'll try to come up with more in the next couple days since for the first couple days of my 365 day project I'll probably be drawing her.
The reason I'm doing this 365 day project is because I think it's good for me and shall keep my art skills up so they don't just fade away in to nothingness and I become lazy.
Plus, I want to make good use of this tablet I have, considering I payed a lot for it.

Gaia Flobs 11/9/2010

Some flobs I did for Gaiaonline. Two are actually of my own avi. The third is of one of my best friend's avi's.
I like how these came out too. C:

Day 1: Meet Lily

This is Lily.
I just came up with her today.
The idea popped in my head actually a while ago or well a couple days ago. To draw OC's depicting my friends.
This is what I'd think my friend would be like if I thought about it.
More self confidence, stronger, etc.
Lily isn't exactly like my best friend. But when I look at her, I think of my best friend.
She might change over time of course. To maybe curlier hair or wavy hair, like my friend's. But I think that would be about it.
I'm still trying to figure out the whole hair thing. D: I'm not good with hair styles, or well, anything for that fact.


Just started doodling something up in SAI and this is what I came up with.
Just started drawing the female's skin.

Tumblr Switch Over [Edit: OR NOT!]


I was going to switch over to Tumblr, but I've decided to keep my old blog.
Since i did start it a couple years back and the name is in memory of my old rabbit I had since I was little. So I can't just give it up it seems.
I'm sorry for worrying anyone. D:

//Slaps self.
