Lol...If I give away the secret, everyone will know. If every knows, no one will buy. And no one is buying, as it is... (._.)
Well, I have sold two. One was a French Bulldog replica. The other, I've been paid for, but I'm still trying to figure out how it will look before I start making it...lol.
If all goes well, she'll get her surgery, we'll get a big settlement, and I can make money from my artwork...or find some other online job I can do. ^_^
I have social anxiety and agoraphobia so going out and getting a job is difficult... (._.)
I'm not so far gone that I can't leave the house and I really do try to get out and just deal with my issues, but it is very difficult. I only have one friend, in my state. My family keeps me busy and I can hang out with my friend from time to time, but unless I am able to do it more often, I can't get over my problems. I'm just lucky I don't have to worry about getting worse, since I do get out on occasion.
When anyone in my family has a problem with me or something I'm doing, they talk to my Mom about it. I'm 28 and everyone still treats me like a child. I won't say what...right off, but something happened to me, when I was a child. So everyone thinks I'm a fragile flower and I'll break if they even look at me wrong... =_=
Sad part, I'm actually one of the strongest people in my family...lol. Anyway, my family is very close knit and I don't like making them feel disappointed or worried about me. I try to make everyone happy...lol.
Also, that story...It's originally about me. It's never happened to me, but it was always a girl and man. I came up with this story, before I ever knew yaoi. I grew up hating homosexuality and having no contact with the outside world. I was very close minded and had no idea what people outside of my state thought. I didn't get internet till four or five years ago...lol. I've become a lot more open minded and accepting now... ^_^
Well...I tend to draw a lot of shadows. Shadows are easy and also hold mystery. I love mystery, behind pictures...lol. It makes it into a real visual work, but people can still imagine whoever they wish to see as the man and woman... ^_^
I can't do yuri though. The story clearly states, "Wait there is a man standing 10 feet in front of me." So he has to be a man. The other can be a dude or chick...lol.
Technology just hates me. I'm not savvy on it and so it takes advantage of that fact, by bein mean to me on a constant basis... T^T
Meanie head technology... (._.)
I have Facebook, but I don't know you well enough for that, yet...lol. ^_^
I sew...a little. It's not very good, unless I spend hours on it... =_=
My plushies are not made with needle and thread. Well...They're made with needles, but they're special needles. And I suppose it's thread. It can be made into thread. They're made with wool... ^_^
Doing alright? Well...That's a very detailed answered, yet without many details. It's just a long freakin story...lol. Let's just say, I'm poor as dirt and the world is against us! However, we're still alive...for the most part and we take care of ourselves...because no one else wants to...lol. Btw, the we/our/us is my Mom and me... ^_^
I hate FLCL...lol. I cannot stand the art style or story...haha. I just have this thing against cartoony type art with crazy story lines... o.o
I'm not saying it's easy to do all that. I just don't care for it, myself...lol.
And it would be nice to draw it all out. I just need to figure out what do do with it. I'm greatly into yaoi and I'm in a Facebook group that has read it and they want me to make it a yaoi. However, my family is all Christian and/or against homosexuality so I'd have to make it straight, but it'd be cute a yaoi and yuri. And it hurts my brain just thinking about it. Besides, I'd also have to come up with how the two characters look. Might cheat and shadow their faces...or at least one of them...lol. Sorry...Went on a ride, there for a sec. >.>
I have Skype, but I can't use it right now. My computer hates me and freezes with every move I make. It freezes when I don't move. It hates me... (._.)
You can make Totoro? I just need the right colors and I can make him. I've just been busy with other stuff, right now... T^T
I have a few solid stories...sorta. The details are slowly being lost, but I do have them finished...in my head. Getting stories out are very difficult, for me. I do have a short story, that I finished. I sat down and wrote that sucker out in like five minutes...10 to 15 years ago. All I know, I was a kid...lol. Everyone seems to love it. Now, if only I could bust out a few more just as good...It'd make a great oneshot manga.
Add what where? '-'
I turned it into a keychain. I made a white one too and call it a snow sprite...lol. It's basically a color inverted version of the soot sprite... ^_^
I'm thinking of making a bunch of them and sticking them together...lol. Or I could make a Totoro and put them around him. I need more colors. T^T
Sorry...My brain is so full of ideas for art that I literally cannot keep up with them all. I lose stories, art, and all kinds of other things all the time, in my head. It's sad... (._.)
And I suppose I'm a night person. My normal hours...for my body, are 4am to 12pm. I still wake up throughout that time so it's not a full 8hours of sleep. If I'm worn and hurting, I can fall asleep around 1am to 2am, but it's rare. And other times, I can't sleep till 5am to 7am. Depends on how I'm feeling, I suppose...lol.
I have pictures of them, on this site. They're in my profile... ^_^
And now I don't know what to say. I just woke up and feel like passing back out...lol.
I made three plushies from Miyazaki films. A soot sprite, a Kodama, and Jiji...the cat. They're so cute... ^_^
And I'm with you on that...I mean. I love attention, but I hate it at the same time. It's a complicated relationship I have with bein a chick...lol. Girls love being the center of attention, but some of us just don't like it. It's awkward and you feel exposed. I prefer hiding in a corner...lol.
And I wouldn't mind at all... ^_^
Actually, cosplayers are always considered the cool people. And if your cosplay is not only accurate, but well made and you look just like the character...You're followed around everywhere, with cameras. Everyone wanting you to pose or act in a way the character would...lol. I've only been to one convention and it was really small because it was in a small town. I was 17. I was so busy buying stuff that I didn't pay attention to anything else though...hahaha.
That was your first anime? I wish Miyazaki was my first, but mine was still cute...lol. Super Book and Flying House were my firsts...lol. I was really really little when those aired in America. I was raised a Christian so that was a good "cartoon" to watch, for us...lol. I didn't find out till I was deep into anime that those were actually Japanese anime...hahaha.
I'd love to be outgoing and cosplay, but I'd love even more just to go to a convention and shop my little heart out...lol. I'd by so much stuff I'd have to bring a truck...hahaha.
Lol...I would love to be a cosplayer, but I'm too poor and have no one to go with. I'm too shy to stand out like that too. Tryin to break out of my shell though...lol.
It's been awhile since I've seen those two anime, but both were great... ^_^
I'm a big fan of Miyazaki. So my type of anime is more cutesie and sweet. I did like the end of Chobits though. It really was sweet... ^_^
