Some people ask me why I never watermark my images - mostly, it is because I want to show off the amazing artwork and cool effects in the jewelry; something that I don't think can even be expressed even by the photos that I take (though I try my best to do them justice!!).

If you want to download an image or share with friends, go right ahead!
*Though a link back or some sort of attribution would be much appreciated ;p*

Whew! It sure has been a long time, hasn’t it, my fellow Deviants! ;p

After taking some time to relax with pendant-making so that I could focus a bit more on my college coursework, I have been chosen by my professors to receive a top-achievement award for the English department at my college! I certainly wasn’t expecting that, given that I am a commuter student and don’t hang round much to talk to my professors, so it certainly was a nice surprise now that I am in my Senior year and am seriously considering soon tackling a Masters with a focus in Creative Writing

Being surrounded by others on Deviantart who are so exceptional, I must say that it has only made me more of a driven creator in everything that I do, so I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has spoken with me over the years – from the seriously serious, to the seriously silly – and to wish everyone luck as we all move forward!

 

Since it’s springtime and a new year is already upon us, I wanted to extend a little present to you with 20% off your purchase of $10 or more in my Etsy store (now thorugh March 26) with the code

 

SPRING

And of course, since I have been a bit of a hermit the last few months, tell me something about what you would like to see as a pendant, be it a show or a specific character :D

Also, if you feel like it, let me know what has been going on in your own life in these last few months, something that has gone good, something that has gone bad, or even something that you are aiming to accomplish in the future!

  • Mood: Sunny Mood
  • Listening to: a snoring puppy
  • Reading: The Wasteland, Jekyll and Hyde, So Far From God...
  • Watching: an essay slowly getting longer XD

Just my Gaia avatar^^
I am still under the BlackManaBurning name there, so add me if you like^^

Current Residence: wherever I happen to be at the time
Favourite genre of music: Any type (except rap!!!)
Favourite style of art: Black and white. Just pencil is my fave♥
Personal Quote: "I can't fill my bookshelf with NOOKs!!!!"

Right now I am in college, and am in pursuit of a joint degree in English and Business, so that someday I can use my writing and love of production to join a publishing company~

I absolutely LOVE writing, and although I don't upload much of that here anymore, I am always more then willing to lend a hand with editing, and general comments on other's writing~

Aside from writing, I love drawing, of course, and was the initial reason I had joined DA (aside from peer pressure - you know who you are!!!). So... again, although I don't upload much drawings-wise (mainly due to the fact that I use too big of paper to get a good scan XD), when I do, you would be a fool not to be amazed at my skill, lol.

For now though, here I will be, ready and willing to serve my fellow fans with handmade items for some of my favorite games and anime!


____________________________________________________________________________________

For those of you who do not understand what I do, think of me as a tailor.

I take worn out cloth with a beautiful design, giving it new life as something different, while still retaining an authentic grounds in an antique, designer item whose creator I give full credit to.

Do not hate the tailor for letting out a pair of shorts that just don't quite fit anymore, or for adding a zipper; instead, thank said tailor's ability allowing something to be used again with purpose.

Still don't quite get it?

Think of me then as someone who frames artwork - say you buy an artist's print, and then once you get it home you want it in a nice frame. So... you take it to a store, and have it professionally done. At the same time, you may see another piece of artwork that the framer has, and ask to buy it since it looks so very pretty♥

I do not lay claim to the artwork that is not mine; however, I do ask that you respect the time and effort that it takes to transform an item into something else.

In terms of copyright and other trademarks, what I do is no different in the mind of the "law" than people who get commissioned to do a work of a trademarked character, (from drawings and plushies to statues and cosplay) or who sell their "hand-drawn" fan works at conventions.

That said... I am more than happy to help out a fellow artist or collector in terms of finding the best deals on trading cards, but as with any other artist, any questions into my methods of creating my artwork will either get you little more than encouragement to explore on your own, or a polite turn-down - especially to those who send me nothing more than a "tell me how to do it" 1-sentence note. As someone who also started out knowing nothing, I encourage - no, DARE - you to find what works best for YOU and discover your own hidden talent!! :D

Finally - if I do not answer hate emails and etc, it is either because I have heard it all before, or due to the fact that as a human being with a limited lifespan I simply do not have the time to deal with someone who has a bored lil' trollbot mind ;p
