Updated 2014 ListWhat... only premium accounts get the option of multiple and scheduled submissions? That just doesn't make sense to me. This feature is usually free on photo sharing sites, Tumblr, Hootsuite, and the list goes on.. It only makes sense because it's a feature that increases usability and viewership. And it's something I rely on a lot on other sites that I always wished dA had. But now when they roll it out, it's exclusive. Psshh....
Okay, now back to the pointless updates I often use this journal for. First, an update on my previous list.
Things I aim to do:
Make one more zine issue (before move)→ Start on issue 2.2 of & Octo zine (read more about the zine here
Participate in this year's Inktober→ Prepare for participating in Inktober by getting more accustomed to using ink, i.e., use ink more.
Finish 3 books from

Hanna-Riikka's questions for me:Do you have any addictions?
Hmm, I'm sure I do, but at the moment the exact things don't come to mind. Collecting books, art supplies, and photo equipment even though I'm not particularly devout to any of them.
2. Look over your right shoulder, what do you see?
3. Have any of your childhood toys survived to this day?
I don't think so.<b>
Requests Open/HelpHelp! Prompts needed!
Whenever I take a break from drawing (which is often), it's always hard for me to get back into it. Part of the problem is that, unless I have someone to draw for, I can't really come up with anything for myself. So it would help me a great lot if anyone has any suggestions, prompts, or ideas that I can interpret. Whether it be a phrase, an abstract notion, or some kind of theme word, post it in a comment. If I get any replies, I'll make a new journal listing the ones that spark my interest the most as a to-do list .
Things I've Learned About Watercolor... mainly with the help of this site and willing artists who kindly addressed my querries about supplies and technique, and offered tips about things on which I never even thought of asking in the first place. I don't know if this will prove useful to anyone who watches me, but it's somewhat like a starter guide for watercolor.
My interest in watercolor probably started with Naoko Takeuchi's Sailor Moon artbook illustrations. But my interest was mostly in its aesthetics. I never really thought of trying it until a few years ago, and even then I was just too intimidated by the idea of it as some kind of uncontrollable medium. Plus, I didn't know how to get started. I didn't know what I needed to know, what questions to ask in order to buy what I needed without wasting my money on something I wasn't sure I was going to be able to do. Because we all know how expensive art supplies are and how some hobbies don't even last a month. So it took me a while before deciding to ove

Zines Reviewed ListI have been trying to keep my Tumblr afloat with occasional zine reviews about ones I've read and recent favorites. If you're looking to acquire some new titles, maybe check out some of the ones mentioned under the zine reviews tag in Foggybottom Press. It's not a very big list as I don't actively acquire zines, but I try to keep this list up to date whenever I post one.
Now to what I've been reading and writing about! Reviews so far:
Murmur Nation/Oh Canada!/Left Me Overs by MaijiWanderer/Places by koyamori
The Routes We Wander no. 3 by Lee Taylor
Zine Mailing ListSince I was asked if I had a mailing list for my zines, I decided to make one! http://eepurl.com/wpiij
And Octopus i.4Essentially four more pages to go!
Feels like with each issue the struggle just gets more and more difficult for me. Wish I could go back and time myself to see whether my process time increases with each issue. I've been struggling for a while so with 4 more pages plus the covers to go, it's like I can finally see the finish line.
I really hope to have it done by the end of this month. I must! Then I can finally start on those ATCs I owe.
Also, on a completely unrelated note, I just read that some NY Times food blogger had listed Lee's Sandwiches in San Jose as one of the best banh mis (a.k.a the Viet Hoagie on the East Coast) in America. What?! That's like mentioning McDonald's in a post about the top burger joints in a city, let alone the country. The first thing I did when I got to S.J. after checking into the hotel was go to Lee's Sandwiches because the West Coast just brings such expectations, but I was considerably underwhelmed. I had such high hopes, I wanted t
PLEASE READ - The Ransomware EpidemicPlease share, fave and spread this journal. You could help many people on DeviantArt protect their computers from this horrific cyberattack and raise awareness about the issue to those who haven't yet heard of it.
Funny how all these years of me picking and choosing updates to keep my computer functioning how I want it (you know... to have what you paid for and keep my product without others stealing it and modifying it *cough*badupdates*cough* ... basic consumer rights... but anyway) came to haunt me.
So I finally decided that I'd bite the bullet and update my updates... only to find out Windows Update was refusing to update and would forever stay stuck "searching for updates". Just my luck. When I really don't want updates they try to install, and when I really need them they don't.
Anyhow, why am I so desper

Collection: My Little Pony plz - Mane Cast 1/2Hello, my sexy ponies!
Yes, I totally stole that greeting from the adorable :iconkezzi-rose: whose profile you should definitely visit. I have never seen a cuter one on deviantArt
This is a collection of so-called plz-accounts related to the animated television series "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic". If you have not seen it yet, this is your first step in joining the herd. Just watch the Pilot Episode and see if it can win your sympathy The original collection comes from MLPFiMplz, but it has not been updated in a while, so I thought I make it 20% cooler
Since the size of a Journal entry is limited to 60KB, I had to split the collection:

Find Your Homestuck Troll Blood Color!Yeah so here is how it works! You need to figure out your sun sign, and your moon sign. There is a calculator similar to this one out there, but it doesn't take in account jade bloods or mutants. This also doesn't require rounding. Hussie has already stated that the only troll blood colors that exist are the ones we have seen in the comic + lime. I also had to take in account that the jade blood color is rare, but the odds of getting jade with the distribution unadjusted are extremely high, so I figured out a way to make it work so it makes sense. I also took in account that fuchsia blood is extremely rare, and so is being mutant. The distribution that I am working with is a pyramid. I'll explain the breakdown at the end.
