UPDATE 10/4/2012
September's over and so is the raffle. The winner has been randomly chosen. Congratulations to Lupana! Her winning "ticket" was a response to the question, "You're given the plane ticket equivalent of a blank check. Where would you fly?" Her answer? "Yellowstone National Park. Because I've always wanted to go there!"

A screenshot of the results is posted here:
Raffle Results by ThreshTheSky

Thanks to everyone who participated! More contests and raffles to come. :)
[end update]
----------------------------------

•State of Commissions
Commissions are still open, but my estimated turn around time has increased to 1-2 weeks (though most paintings are finished faster). While I can no longer offer my previous turnaround time of a few days without a rush request, please be assured that I'm still doing everything I can to continue to offer timely commissions that don't compromise on quality.

•State of Fan Art
As I've mentioned in a few recent deviation descriptions, I really hope that people who watch me for my fan art paintings haven't been too annoyed or disappointed that my uploads have been commission-heavy.  I'm really enjoying doing commissions of original characters and feel that it's pushing me to try new subject matter and painting techniques. But I'd like to assure anyone who's thinking something along the lines of "Where be the fan artz?" that there's plenty more in the works. Upcoming projects that are currently in various states of completion include Bellatrix Lestrange, Sirius Black, an Inglorious Basterd, and another character from The Hobbit. And I hope it goes without saying that there's [always] more Les Mis on the way.

•Tag/Mini-Contest

I was tagged by Tiquilla with the tag posted here. fav.me/d5ejumk

Five things about me:
1) The last movie I saw was Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark.
2) When I eat a bag of M&M's, I feel compelled to sort them by color before eating them.
3) I need to change the nib on my tablet pen.
4) I recently discovered the comic book series The Boys by Garth Ennis and think it's amazing.
5) My cat is sitting on my lap as I type this.

Tiquilla's Questions (copied verbatim from her post):
1) Whats you lucky number? I don't have one.
2) Are you in love? No.
3) Do you think you can draw? I try. Often, I try really hard.
4) Can you ,,Warrior cats" ? I've heard of the series but am not familiar with it.
5) Whats you favourite movie art(thriller...)? My favorite film genre is action, though that's a pretty diverse category these days. Historical dramas, thrillers, and comedies are also up there.
6) Do you love to draw? Most days.
7) How long you draw? I've been drawing since I got my first Magna Doodle. I think I was around two years old then.
8)  when is you birthday? (*O*) On the anniversary of one of the biggest battles of the American Civil War.
9) Were is you idol? Among others, I have a deep admiration for anyone who does work that benefits the welfare of animals.
10) What do you Think over middleages? It's a time period in history that never really interested me as much as others. For what it's worth, Monty Python and the Holy Grail is one of my favorite movies, ever. (And Spamalot is awesome!)
11) Believe you on the ,, Friday the 13 " ?? No.

Instead of tagging anyone specific, I'm going to turn this into a raffle of sorts. If you'd like to enter, post a comment on this journal entry that answers as many or as few of my tag questions as you'd like (they're posted below). The number of questions you answer will be the number of virtual "raffle tickets" or entries that you get. I'll determine the winner using a random number generator. So if the first person to post a reply answers six out of the thirteen possible questions, that person will get "ticket" numbers 1 through 6. If the second person answers three questions, he or she will get numbers 6 through 8. And so on.

Quick Rules:
-Only one comment per person. So no one may have more than 13 total "ticket" numbers.
-Don't worry about assigning raffle numbers to each of your answers. I'll take care of the counting when I do the drawing.
-Comments will remain open for about a week, at which point I'll draw the random winner.
-Prize is a free greyscale portrait from me (copyrighted characters accepted!)

My questions:
1) What's the title of the last book you finished?
2) You're only allowed to participate in one fandom for the rest of your life. What one do you choose?
3) DC or Marvel?
4) Any tattoos? If not, would you ever get one?
5) What form does your Patronus take?
6) Drink of choice? (Alcoholic or otherwise.)
7) Are you the oldest, a middle child, the baby, or an only kid?
8) What's your dream car (or other vehicle)?
9) You're given the plane ticket equivalent of a blank check. Where would you fly?
10) What movie, tv show or character from any medium most reminds you of your own life or personality?

Bonus questions:
11) WHAT is your name?!
12) WHAT is your favorite color?!
13) WHAT… is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?!

Have fun! I hope everyone's September is going ok and look forward to reading your answers. (And of course, please feel free to post in the comments even if you don't want to answer any of the questions or enter the contest.)

I wanted to join, but I'm lame at this kind of thing and pathologically shy. In fact I'm SO GLAD I've never been tagged yet. September's about to end, btw. Wakey, wakey :P

Haha. You know, you still could. I've got enough commissions on my plate right now that I probably won't close this for another few days. And it's not like you have to take any of these questions seriously to get entered, or even answer them all. A lot of the responses I got (as was my intention) were smart-ass answers that don't actually reveal anything about the responder. :D

Ok... I'll give it a try, then :happybounce: If you have some time to waste in reading my nonsense answers and my misunderstanding the whole point and dynamics of the thing :giggle:

Five things about me (though I don't know if I was supposed to do those too):
1) I haven't had a proper haircut since 1997. Which sounds disgusting, put this way.
2) In the past millenium, my taste in music was limited almost exclusively to movie soundtracks.
3) I share the same birthday (141 years apart) with John Wilkes Booth, the man who shot Abraham Lincoln.
4) I like wearing silver (or silver-like) rings.
5) I'm... err... right handed :shrug:

Your questions:
1) What's the title of the last book you finished?

A: I think it was Michael Crichton posthumous novel, "Micro".

2) You're only allowed to participate in one fandom for the rest of your life. What one do you choose?
A: Difficult... I'd probably stick to Sarah Brightman's. With it's ups and downs, it's the fanbase I've always been more involved with and more active.

3) DC or Marvel?
A: I was more into DC growing up and then around my teens I fully discovered Marvel and felt more identified with it.

4) Any tattoos? If not, would you ever get one?
A: I don't have any. Always considered getting one. Was about to do it this summer, but it didn't happen in the end :P

5) What form does your Patronus take?
A: It'd take the form of a charging Parasaurolophus walkeri.

6) Drink of choice? (Alcoholic or otherwise.)
A: Dunno... almost any sugar free soda will do.

7) Are you the oldest, a middle child, the baby, or an only kid?
A: Only child.

8) What's your dream car (or other vehicle)?
A: I'd probably pick something like the speeder bikes from "Return of the Jedi".

9) You're given the plane ticket equivalent of a blank check. Where would you fly?
A: Cambodia. I'm obsessed with Angkor Wat and the Khmer.

10) What movie, tv show or character from any medium most reminds you of your own life or personality?
A: Hmmm... that's very difficult again. I remember feeling identified with Fred in Jodie Foster's "Little man Tate". Of course I wasn't a prodigy myself, but was somewhat... precocious or whatever. And I completelly relate to many things in that movie.

Bonus questions:
11) WHAT is your name?!

A: My name is Æmilius Percival Wulfric Brian... no... wait...

12) WHAT is your favorite color?!
A: I don't think I have one... it could be burgundy, if that's a color :P

13) WHAT… is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?!
A: What do you mean? An African or European swallow? You have to know these things when you're a king, you know?

Why, I think that's it then. And I think I answered more or less seriously after all. Maybe it won't be the end of the world when I actually get tagged. But I never wanted to be part of this in the first place :O I wanted to be... a lumberjack! Leaping from tree to tree! The crash of the mighty oak! The elm! The larch! With my best girl by my side! And sing, sing, sing...!

♫ Oh, Iiiiiiii'm a lumberjack and I'm OK,
I sleep all night and I work all day... ♫

... He's a lumberjack and he's okay
He sleeps all night and he works all day...


I'm glad you decided to do this! :la: I hate to say it, but I hope you do get tagged for stuff in the future because your answers are awesome! I'd like a speeder bike too, by the way...

Thanks for entering!

♫ I cut down trees, I eat my lunch. I go to the lavat'ry.
On Wednesdays I go shopping, and have buttered scones for tea ♫


Lol. You're welcome. Well, I'm glad you found it amusing :P I still worry at the thought of being tagged and having to tag others too :P

1) What's the title of the last book you finished? - Um.. I think the second Percy Jackson book. I read a lot XD
2) You're only allowed to participate in one fandom for the rest of your life. What one do you choose? - Doctor Who I think.
3) DC or Marvel? - MARVEL definitely :3
4) Any tattoos? If not, would you ever get one? - No and not really no ;)
5) What form does your Patronus take? - I have no idea.

This may sound corny, but I'm gonna have to go with my own characters Annabelle and Lewis. I suppose I unconsciously modeled them after myself, because I do see so much of myself in them. I see my quirky sense of humor in Lewis, and the ability to hide feelings with humor. And I also see my need to be accepted reflected in Annabelle :meow:

Yellowstone is amazing! I went there with my family a long time ago but still remember how beautiful it was. I hope you get the chance to go there some day.

Thanks for entering, Sir Lancelot! ;)
