This place doesn't update that often but I do try and put my better pieces that I've submitted to tumblr on here. My interests range everywhere so don't expect to see just one thing for years and years. 

Thank you to everyone who has favorited or dropped a nice comment--it all means a lot! :^)

I'd like to try an OCT again, I think.

I don't know when or what. But I want to.

So I've been getting questions about reverse turtles on here for a few weeks now and figured I'd make this post for anyone who's interested, I guess. Time to lay down some facts and rules!

Reverse Turtles was created by me with the help of :iconceece-45: and we first posted it on tumblr over the summer. It's an idea that we're not willing to share with anyone else, or let someone else come up with ideas for, because we've already planned it beginning to end. If you want to create fanart or fanfiction for it, that's fine! But keep in mind that whatever headcanons or ideas you have for it are not canon (or as canon as a fan-made universe can be).

If you want to see all the questions I've answered on the subject look at this link here: REVERSE TURTLE ANSWERS MASTERPOST.

If you want to see all the reverse turtles posts I've ever done look at this link here: ALL REVERSE TURTLE POSTS.

TELL ME IF YOU SEE SOMEONE ELSE TAKING CREDIT FOR THIS AS THEY ARE STEALING.

Thank you.

AKA how to kill me in less than thirty minutes.

Megatron's death was extremely well played out and I felt regret when he gripped the blade and looked disbelieving. I mean, man, he actually /died/. And then Starscream started shrieking no and I wheezed and curled in on myself.

BUT Bee's almost death got to me too. The well timed fall with the bots looking on in shock and horror really sealed the drama of the situation. Kudos to the storyboard artists, gosh.

Man now we just have the movie to the look forward too--hopefully the followup series will maybe be same universe? Very doubtful, but a girl can dream! Guess I'll be switching my focus more to TMNT right now with the finale coming up.

I just realized all my work has watermarks on them and I'm too lazy to go back in and change this.

Should I put in the effort DA?

Should I?

I really need to use DeviantArt more. It made me be creative and think of stories and characters. I don't know if anyone still uses this anymore (I don't think so unfortunately), but those of you who are still on here, I'd like to...I don't know, talk again?

I want to draw my old characters more too. I dunno, I feel like I really left for too long.

-Erika

Time to draw.

I'm looking through my old art--specifically the art I did for OCTs and I'm...wow.

It's nice when you can see improvement.

Last night I had a dream about Richard and Feodor. It was weird, man.

Classes have me busy. Third year of college only gets more and more stressful but the work isn't exactly miserable. I update my tumblr really with everything. If you follow me on there you'll know how intense my obsession for both Paranorman and Transformers Prime is. I may update this place with more art soon or I may not.

The only reason I'm really keeping this account is because it has all my old art on it.

That's really it for now,

I got a nice batch of drawings to whip up for everyone and I can't take on anymore. Tomorrow I will be driving back to college and getting settled in again as well as finally meeting back up with my girlfriend after not being able to see her for over a month, then classes start up again on Wednesday. In short these requests aren't going to be finished quickly unfortunately, but hopefully I'll be able to draw them up in a timely manner so that you guys get to see your characters soon!

Hopefully everyone isn't too upset with the time it's going to take to do this--sorry it's just a busy week for me!

I wanna draw other people's characters because I draw my own way too much. So totally gimme one or two characters with refs linked and I'll try and churn out some art for you. Take it as an end of the year gift sort of thing. c:

Ah and I am unsure of how many I'll do depending on how many people request. Who knows, maybe I'll do them all! 8U

In a little over a week I'll be heading back to SCAD and I'll finally be through all my foundational studies and getting into my animation-specific ones. For instance I will be doing both a principles of 2D class and a class concentrated on Maya (a 3D program).

I'm excited and nervous. I hoping I do well.

On that note also whenever SOCT's round one finally ends (because I am unsure when that is?) I'll be trying to draw round two if we get past. But if SCAD makes me too busy I may be unable to draw the entire round. I guess we'll have to see...

Hope everyone is well.

I dunno, whitetiger13 is just...it was obviously made in middle school and I wince every time I see my username. You guys think I should make a new DA and just move my art over there? Jeez, I wish I could just change my username that would be so helpful. >8I

to draw your characters.

So let's play a game, deviantart. The first....five people who comment on this journal and tell me which of their characters to draw will get them drawn. c:

Alrighty guys it's about time to say goodbye to my old tablet and order a new one.

I already posted this on tumblr but there's a high chance that no one will have any advice so I'm posting here as well. I did some research and the Intuos4 (small size) looks about right because it's efficient and cheap enough.

Anyone have any suggestions? Would this be a good purchase to make?

Thanks guys!
