Critiques

Totoro Zombie by techn0vert

I really love the use of shading on the little guy. You've come up with something unique from a character that's already so well used. ...

for those of you who are still kids, stop wishing to grow up....i'm glad i never did  - unfortunately it hits you like a ton of bricks whether you want it or not

it's currently 2 am while i sit here worrying if i can afford to pay all my bills 

i work a full time job

i run animeexchange.com.au

but i have a home loan, car repayments, insurance, registration, fuel, electricity, internet, water, rates.

then there's food....for me, my sister, brother 2 nieces and a nephew who all live with me.  i dont know why i always seem to end up paying the lions share there, i offer to do the shopping on my pay week (fortnightly) and somehow shopping never gets done the other week....but i'll be throwing the towel down on that one tomorrow, shape up or i only buy what i need daily and fuck you all

oh and the giant dog my sister bought but never feeds or walks, and the cat she didnt want anymore and i ended up with

oh the dog? i walk it...no big deal, except the whole spare time and then the fact that im cripple and the dog pulling against the freaking lead nearly bowls me over every 2 minutes, but i can't scold him because he's been abused before so i feel bad for him


OH and i'm paying for all the recent renovations in the kitchen too...i do collect rent from my brother and sister, but no that never seems to actually cover my incoming bills, i sometimes think i'd be better off if i kicked em all out and lived alone.


i get a good bonus from work every quarter (based on my epic performance) but something always comes up....my medical expenses are ridiculous....i spend $100 a month easily on one prescription, but it's for nerve pain so it's an absolute must for me.

sooooo...i really need a holiday but can't afford one....my sister then tuns to me tonight "change of plans tomorrow' (i just wanted to go pick up the only luxury item i have decided to afford myself : loki agent of asgard)  because she's negotiated a large sale for me, over an hour away and i have to go....but the real reason is because she wants to check out an anime store....so what?  well how about the fact she owes me money and is trying to convince me to buy myself an umbreon hoodie, sure i want it but i can't bloody afford it....ill go to towoomba, sell the damn cards, look at her stupid store, remind her i have no money (and nor does she - and if she does she sure as fuck better be giving me the money back) and have to wait til sunday to get the $4 comic i've been looking forward to forever. 

the large sale might cover my bills this week and leave me a little towards my car rego next fortnight cause i sure as eff can't afford that

i've ranted but...meh, i will try my hardest to scan in and put up the pictures i have ready (still missing a bunch since i moved in though)  so maybe i will get the first pics up in over a year....that might help my self esteem a little. :(  im normally very confident but works been to busy so i haven't gotten my usual 'omg karen, you're so awesome' 's from my co-workers...and i feel crappy cause all my clothes need to be replaced..there's nothing majorly wrong with them but a girl need sto look fresh dammit

anyway enjoy being young and reject change at every opportunity...change is bad

also dont have kids, they suck...like a lot...i dont have em, i just have 10 nieces and 3 nephews and sometimes i am glad i dont have a gun cause i really don't think i wanna go to jail as a kid-killer.

Talented, sexy, i love anime, games, and a few select - more than likely geeky movies.

Unfortunetly i have a full time job and am often picking up overtime shifts while i save money to buy a house, not get a mortgage, buy a house. I can do it too. I'm sure of it. Most my art i do late night at work after the phone stops ringing. which is most my shift, especially on weekends.

I am a hard core toy collector - i have a lot, started collecting My little ponies when i was five (i'm old shutup) i have thousands, ots of anime/games figures and some movie figures too.

I will open a toy museaum in the future, and i cannot wait most my stuff is in storage right now and it would be really nice to see all the things i've forgotten about!

i am taking a few different art classes now but just one shot session seeing as i can't get the time to do more, it's a crime, i work 6-7 days a week, i work evenings but i have rehabilitation for my back (i am paralyzed down my right leg foot/partical eft foot too) twice a week, and normal doctors on top of that, so my schedual is pretty full - however i love art and at the very least - even though i can't give promises on times - i can promise to try if you have a request for me, i always draw better when it's for other people so please ask away!

I sent an angel to watch over you last night but it came back.
I asked "why?"
The angel said "angels don't watch over angels."
Twenty one angels are IN your world. Ten of them are sleeping, Ten are playing, one is reading this message.
Send this to ten friends including me. I guess if I don't get it back I'm not one of them. As soon as you get five replies, someone you love will quietly surprise you. Please read, not joking. God has seen you struggling with something. God says its over. A blessing is coming your way. If you believe in God send this message on. Please don't ignore it. You are being tested. God is going to fix two things BIG tonight in your favor. DROP Everything and pass it on. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Don't break this chain. Send to 14 friends in 10 minutes. It's not that hard

Tag, quality deviant, you’re it!! Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how many followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!!

(( I was tagged, but your also an awesome artist as well, regardless if you on DA or not :) ))
