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:

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.)

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 Ĉmilius 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... ♫

1) What's the title of the last book you finished? - Um.. I think the second Percy Jackson book. I read a lot XD

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 don't even know which superheroes are Marvel and which are DC.

1) What's the title of the last book you finished?
Warrior Cats Special Adventure "Das Schicksal des Wolkenclans" (engl title: WARRIORS, Skyclan's Destiny) - but I'm starting to read the newest (german translated) book of the series soon: Warrior Cats - Season 3, Book 1 - "Die Macht der Drei - Der Geheime Blick" (engl title: Warriors, The Power of Three. The Sight)

2) You're only allowed to participate in one fandom for the rest of your life. What one do you choose?
This one is cruel! But I might pick Doctor Who.

3) DC or Marvel?
Marvel, but I'm not a comic reader... Still, besides Batman and, maybe, Green Lantern, I think I'll enjoy more Marvel series then DC... Even though I find it crazy that every Marvel Story is supposed to take place in the same world, while Superheroes and mutants like the fantastic four or spiderman (if you want to count him in) are loved, but mutants from the x-men series are hated to the blood and people are afraid of them... makes absolutly no sense >.<

4) Any tattoos? If not, would you ever get one?
No tattoo. If there would be a way to get a tattoo without the needles, count me in :D

5) What form does your Patronus take?
Probably a Cat, maybe a Lynx.

6) Drink of choice? (Alcoholic or otherwise.)
Not drinking any alc ^^ So I say Vio, that's a simple table water I really like.

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

8) What's your dream car (or other vehicle)?
No driver's license, but if I would have and could choose any car of my choice?
Hybrid/Electric car. No certain brand, but it should be either dark-metallic green and I'll decorate it in Zelda Style, or bright yellow and I design it in Chocobo Style :D
I would prefer the Zelda one x3

9) You're given the plane ticket equivalent of a blank check. Where would you fly?
Scandinavia, most propably. No certain country in mind, so I would need to look into it a bit more if I would choose Denmark, Norway or Sweden mostly.

10) What movie, tv show or character from any medium most reminds you of your own life or personality?
Uff... I have some traits of Fluttershy (MLP), but I'm not THAT shy.

Bonus questions:
11) WHAT is your name?!
Nora. More I won't tell ;)

12) WHAT is your favorite color?!
Green.

13) WHAT… is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?!
"Although a definitive answer would of course require further measurements, published species-wide averages of wing length and body mass, initial Strouhal estimates based on those averages and cross-species comparisons, the Lund wind tunnel study of birds flying at a range of speeds, and revised Strouhal numbers based on that study all lead me to estimate that the average cruising airspeed velocity of an unladen European Swallow is roughly 11 meters per second, or 24 miles an hour."

I would put the hylian emblem on the hood, Link playing the ocarina on one side and Zelda playing the harp on the other. Both of course reduced to two colors, so in the end, it would be just a golden sticker that can be attached.
Yes, I plan this car in my head for a looong time now... Maybe I should just go and make a drivers license XD

Daheck. I've got nothing to lose. ^^

2) You're only allowed to participate in one fandom for the rest of your life. What one do you choose?
AUGH!!! I don't know.. that's really depressing... Er... Lord of the Rings.

I'd have to go with DC. Close call though.

4) Any tattoos? If not, would you ever get one?
None. I probably won't ever get one.

5) What form does your Patronus take?
A cat most likely.

6) Drink of choice? (Alcoholic or otherwise.)

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

ATHENS!!! Always wanted to see Athens!

10) What movie, tv show or character from any medium most reminds you of your own life or personality?

12) WHAT is your favorite color?!
Green!

13) WHAT… is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?!

7) Are you the oldest, a middle child, the baby, or an only kid? Only child, baby! :'D Weirdly, though, I have more of a middle child personality. =w=;
8) What's your dream car (or other vehicle)? .....A DeLorean. XD Shut up. OwO Though I'd totally get a hot air balloon, too. I love them so much.
9) You're given the plane ticket equivalent of a blank check. Where would you fly? Ireland. Faster than you finished that question, I had my answer.
10) What movie, tv show or character from any medium most reminds you of your own life or personality? >wO My initial response would be Donia, from the Wicked Lovely book series. Just because everything she does through the entire series is exactly what I would do in the same situation. That being said, before Donia, I thought the greatest resemblance was Fanny Price from Mansfield Park ;P

Bonus questions:
11) WHAT is your name?! Shay! :D It's my middle name, though. My first name is icky. xP
12) WHAT is your favorite color?! PURPLE! 8D
13) WHAT… is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?! THIS IS A POP CULTURE REFERENCE AND I AM NOT FAMILIAR ENOUGH WITH THE RESPONSE TO RECALL IT VERBATIM.

A DeLorean! Awesome car choice. Would it have the ability to time travel?

I LOVE INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS <3 One of my favourite movies EVER. EVEEEEEER <3

1) What's the title of the last book you finished? It was a photography guide published by National Geographic

2) You're only allowed to participate in one fandom for the rest of your life. What one do you choose? Tarantino-verse. That had better count as a fandom LOL

3) DC or Marvel? I was always a Marvel kid right from the start. Watched some Batman as a kid and now the movies but other than him, my knowledge and care for DC is nil.

4) Any tattoos? If not, would you ever get one? No tattoos. I always tell myself I'll get one if I can ever find something worthwhile to put on my body. Hasn't happened yet lol

5) What form does your Patronus take? Lynx :meow:

6) Drink of choice? (Alcoholic or otherwise.) Chocolate milk aaaalllllll the way <3

7) Are you the oldest, a middle child, the baby, or an only kid? Oldest of two :)

8) What's your dream car (or other vehicle)? I have way too many. Dad works in the auto industry so I've grown up with cars. But if I had to pick just one... probably a yellow Camaro with the double black stripe. Bumblebee, the car of my childhood.

9) You're given the plane ticket equivalent of a blank check. Where would you fly? I travel all over the place to begin with but if I had that option, I'd want to go somewhere I'd never been to before. I've never been to an Asian country so I'll say Japan.

10) What movie, tv show or character from any medium most reminds you of your own life or personality? Tyler Durden from Fight Club :) Other than my penchant for getting into mischief and mayhem, I do value the points about society that the book/movie argues- we've lost our survival instinct, society has numbed us and dumbed us down a bit, the comment about the things we own end up owning us. I certainly don't want to end up like our insomniac narrator. Hence one of the reasons for all my obsessive travelling LOL gotta keep myself on my toes and such :)

Bonus questions:

11) WHAT is your name?! Cat, short for Catherine :meow:

12) WHAT is your favorite color?! Bluuuuuueeeeee. No, wait- really, its blue :D

13) WHAT… is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?! Depends on the swallow. We talking African or European? Male or female? Old or young? In a flock or on its own? Dead or alive? Wait, if it was dead, it wouldn't be flying. Scratch that last one ;p

I really like Inglorious Basterds too. I think it may even edge out Kill Bill Vol 1 as my favorite Tarantino film. Oh, but then there's Reservoir Dogs. Now I'm confused...

And your response for #12 had me rolling on the floor. :XD:

I honestly would never ba able to pick a favourite Tarantino movie. It might just about kill me. Not to mention Django Unchained this Christmas and Kill Bill vol. 3 on the horizon :excited:

Haha, glad I could provide some laughs :meow:

I'm so excited for Django! And the ideas that Tarantino has talked about for Vol. 3, like Nikki seeking revenge, sound so cool!

I'm wickedly excited for Django as well, not to mention I'm dying to see the editing style since Tarantino's token editor died during production :( It'll be interesting to see if he sticks with the style she made for him or if some new editor has gone and done something different. I guess whatever he says goes though :)

Vol. 3 <3 Older versions of Nikki and BB AAAHHHHH its gonna be awesome. I'm stoked to see what's become of Sophie and Elle, too! Knowing Tarantino he's come up with somethins super crazy and awesome :D

I know. It's a real shame that Sally Menke passed. :( The editing style of Tarantino films is one of the big things that makes them, well, Tarantino films. But I doubt he'll let things change too much. And if he does, it will probably be super bizarre and jarring but somehow completely appropriate. He's good at that.

How awesome would it be if Elle was some blind martial arts master who trains Nikki, or something like that?

For sure, I'm a huge fan of her work ;A; I'd miss it if it wasn't bizarre haha thats a huge part of what makes his movies so much fun to watch! :)

I know! That would be killer! :la: Nikki going and looking into her mom's past and stuff and finding the surviving members would be SO COOL! Should be interesting to see how her dad handles that too. And I know this is stretching it, but I'd love to see the kid from the first movie who was in the Crazy 88- the Bride spanked him and sent him home. I'd love to see him make an appearance since she saved his life, but like I said, it might be a bit of a stretch since he was such a small part but he's so adorable :meow:

A small part, but memorable. Maybe he'll be a blink-and-you'll-miss-it shout out or something. :D
