Shamelessly stolen from empiredog!
For 10 people who comment I will go through your gallery and pick a character or two I like and tell you why they're awesome!
I will link said characters and their owners here so everyone can see too, but if you ask for a feature please also spread the love and start up your own Character feature journal, maybe link one of my characters too? I'd love to see what you guys think!
1. and - Kaliyon's design is amazing, and his clothes are great and I can easily imagine him in a Zelda setting. I don't know much about him, but he's really cute. But THAT CAT, I--The palette on the kitty is to die for, love the bright colors with the natural hues and the hood. Plus, their art is great, like every character they have is great, please look, my god.
2. - I like this guy's simple design but also that really nice, long tail that looks like it could glow. uvu Plus, I like characters that have missing limbs since you don't see them that often.
3. - - I HAD TO TELL MYSELF NOT TO BE BIASED BECAUSE OF HER WEREFUU BABIES, BUT I DO LOVE THOSE TWO. But I picked this chick because, while I nothing nothing about One Piece, nor do I really care to ever at all, I really liked her design! The mismatched stocking are cute and her little hair-bow~ Plus, I guess she can duplicate things, so that's cool??? SHE SHOULD DUPLICATE THOSE SHOES FOR ME BECAUSE THOSE ARE REALLY NICE TOO, KNOW WHAT I'M SAYIN'??? AWRIGHT, UP TOP. //SELF HIGH-5
4. - - This guy is drawn really cute and I think he looks adorable, and I like his cute lil cloud tail. uvu
5. - - Deer, man. Deer characters get me. Like the dark coat colors and the green hints, they're really nice. Also those back leg stockings are really nice, balances out his dark coat more.
6. - - Antlers are my weakness, and so are beads and pretty little orb things, and this guy is actually a great design. I had a design from like a long time ago back in middle school and he looked something like this too, so that kinda helped with picking this guy. uvu
7. - - CREATURES OH MY GOD. LISTEN, WOLVES ARE GREAT, REALLY, BUT CREATURE OC'S, THOSE ARE MY WEAKNESS. This guy is a guess a wingless griff?? I dunno, but I love his face and the shape of his beak and mouth, lord. Monsters, guys. Monsters are my favorites.
8. - and - OKAY FIRST, DON'T EVEN GET ME STARTED IN THIS GIRL'S ART. SHE IS GREAT AND SO ARE HER DESIGNS. Like these two, (AND ALSO JEV, ALWAYS JEV), are my FAVORITE designs from her right now. Simple designs that are so beautiful and tasteful with natural dominant palette and splashes of vibrant color. And just small twists of fantasy~ Brilliant, perfect, wrap them up, slap a bow on them, and it is Christmas all over again, they are perfect. ;-; <333 (ALSO ROMAN'S TEETH, LIKE SOMEONE HOLD ME)
9. - - SORRY BUT I HONESTLY DID NOT KNOW WHICH CHARACTERS WERE YOURS AND WHICH WEREN'T??? I like the design of this chick, though, her pupils and hair are really pretty. uvu And she's got cute lil cheek circles like cockatiels do, that's adorable

Tomorrow, my classes start up again, but luckily I'm only taking 2 of them, so GUESS WHO HAS A SHITTON OF MORE TIME TO WORK ON COMMISSIONS???
YEAH IT'S ME.
So right now I'm busy reworking some journal CSS so everything works nicely and there can be new features added. ;v; New fonts will be available too, and the Journal Skin previews will show more text previews, such as bold and italic tags. SO EXCITED, AUGH.
That means soon I'll be reworking the code to my own journal so that it not only matches my page but it also looks better. I'm over Celestial Linnea over here. (sry bbypie)
Last thing, I wanted to say that I'm working on about 50 different projects right now, both personal and commission, and I may be slow because my brain doesn't know which one to start on first?? And with college it'll be a little more confused, so I might be REALLY slow.
Until then, thank you for waiting and supporting me, I appreciate it. ;v;/ <33

Well, today is the last day of 2014, everyone! I hope you all have a great one, and may your start of 2015 be wonderful!
I'm excited to be starting this year for some reason. I'm pretty content with how 2014 came out, (surprisingly), but I have some high hopes for 2015. Partially because I'll be starting this year off as being engaged I guess?? I DUNNO, JUST EXCITED, WOOO.
My resolution for the new year...well, I've got a lot, I guess. I wanna be healthier, because I've been bad being a fatty lately, but I also wanna finally get a little more active and I wanna make friends. I don't have that many, and I think if I get the chance to finally make some, I'll be happier. That, and I really wanna practice art more.
What about your resolutions? What are they? c:
To start the new year, I'm going to clean up my gallery and reorganize it and maybe redo my page. ;v; DON'T WORRY, THE GAMER PAGE WILL COME BACK, I PROMISE. <33
I just wanna redo parts of my page since I think I've fully metamorphosed into hipster trash, and I am sorry.
Hope you all have a good day, and Happy New Year!

Yep. Because having accounts at banks is just begging for trouble. Which is ironic and stupid.
I really hate having to open these right now, not only because finals are this week, but because that means I have to work on them during the holidays, but to be honest, I cannot afford the stupid fees they kept slapping on me. This is literally so I can stay afloat until I find a bank that won't fuck me over.
So I guess consider these Christmas commissions?? Which is sad, because they're commissions and not requests, but trust me, if my bank slaps one more fee on me, I will literally be in the negative, and I cannot have that.
So everything on my commissions page on my weebly is fair game with the exception of the original species stuff, those take a little bit too long. unu
I've updated the journal commission info if you guys want those, and I've also fixed some issues on my weebly so everything should be working just fine now.
If you guys could help out, that'd be great. Between school, Christmas, and the break I just took, my wallet has been taking huge hits already, and my bank is not helping. Any commissioners looking for something of mine is appreciated, thank you!
P.S. If I can get to Christmas gifts for people before Christmas, I will!

Devin is 20 today. Him and his totally nice jawline.
So anyway, that may not seem important, but it is because it pertains to a project I've been working on for a month now for his birthday, which I'm still not done with.
But that's okay, you all will see in due time, I promise.
IT'S GONNA BE HUGE. LIKE CRAZY HUGE. VERY IMPORTANT. BECAUSE IT COULD MEAN A NEW KIND OF COMMISSION IF PEOPLE LIKE IT.
so yeah, know that im absent right now, but not for long.
Also, it's end of semester, so college is kicking my ass too.
Being a student is hard.

I have some good news for those of you with points!: I have a habit of giving away all of my points since I usually don't need them, but I wanna change my username on wereciervo, so I kinda want some. ;-;
But that means I will be taking little commissions for points! ;v; I need about 396 points for a premie, so I'm gonna briefly open up a few slots for 50x50 pixel icon commissions!
According to my website, when converted from money, they're normally 160 points, but I'm gonna drop them down to 100 points. ;v;
SO YEP, 4 SLOTS:
DO NOT GIFT ME POINTS, OR I WILL HAVE TO THROW THEM BACK AT YOU, NO.
Grab them before they gooooo~ ;v;/

In the recent poll I did, I was excited to do some Halloween art trades with everyone, but the Werefuus won by a mile. xD
So, since you guys liked them so much, I'm providing 3 regular Werefuu adopts, and also doing an auction for a Rarefuu~
The Rarefuu will be designed AND uploaded first, and the auction will continue on until November 1st perhaps~ Because it's a Rarefuu, it'll start out more expensive, but trust me, the Rarefuu's hardly have anything of their appearance from the price sheet, so don't worry, it is a rare and unique baby that no one else will be able to have~
And if I'm feeling like I have enough time, I'll make 2 Rarefuus <33 I have a few ideas for some, especially Halloween ones, so it's possible. <3
Back to the normal Werefuu adopts, though: 2 will be regular auctions, (cheaper starting price than the Rarefuu obviously), but the remaining 1 will be a raffle Werefuu!
So here's how it's going to work: As soon as I'm done designing the Rarefuu, I'm going to upload it so that the auction can begin, and that will be the FIRST Halloween Werefuu. Werefuu number 2 will be the raffle Werefuu and will be uploaded after the Rarefuu so that I can start collecting names! The winner will be chosen from a random generator on November 1st, which is when the Rarefuu auction will end as well.
The remaining 2 normal Halloween Werefuu adopts will be uploaded together and will both be auctions that will end on Halloween night, October 31st!
For those of you that would still like an art trade with me, please give me some time, I will try and make it up to you by doing an art trade with you still, but I might need a little more time since I'll be busy with college AND Werefuus now. ><
Thanks for reading~ <33 c:

I wanted to let you all know that my surgery went great; no complications or anything! And despite my nervousness, it doesn't feel as bad as I thought. xD Of course, I have pain meds in me, but still;;;;
When I feel a little better in the next few days, I wanna do something for you guys for Halloween! I don't have a whole lot of ideas at the moment since my head is a little foggy, but I wanna hear from you guys what you want!
Just leave a comment telling me what you would like to get as a gift from me for Halloween, and I'll see what I can do. c:
I love you all, lovelies~
Wed Oct 15, 2014, 1:00 PM
I apologize for my 1 month+ absence, I will be back soon I hope. I've not been doing much, mostly college work and I haven't been able to work on art because of it, (or at least not much of it), so I have some pieces to show you all, but not enough to show you all yet.
During this time, I have not been able to get my tonsils out, I got the actinomyces one last time before I was able to, so my surgery has been pushed to the 23rd of this month.
Commissions are not being accepted at this time, I'm afraid. I don't know when they will be open again, but I was slow with doing just two, and with all of my college assignments, I'm afraid the time I'm going to be able to do them will be less and less. Please be patient and I will let everyone know through a journal entry when they will be opened again.
I also apologize to those I have worried, (namely Shincovi, who has bombarded me sweetly with several comments on my page, I love you bbydoll <33), I obviously have not been here to update you and I never meant to take such a long time to get back, but I am trying very hard to get back to right and finish my work early so I can return to you all.
Thank you for reading, and I apologize again. I will come back to you all shortly.
Sun Sep 14, 2014, 12:29 AM
I give you guys so many updates about it, it's a wonder you don't know my personal information, like my blood type or my SS number, ugh.
Anyway, my tonsillectomy has been moved to the 25th of this month, so that's two surgeries in one month. I have one in two days and then another almost immediately after I'm done recovering from the first one. Unfortunately, this means I won't be able to get to art in the next couple of weeks, and I wasn't able to get to them recently because college has suddenly been really wearing me down.
Which leads me to a relatively new development in that I am a bad luck magnet.
I have been known to not really believe in that bullshit, but I honestly feel like some higher being has really had it out for me recently. A lot of dumb stuff has been happening to me, and on top of college wearing me down and my surgeries, it's not been that great for me. My tonsillitis doesn't seem to be getting better, and my teeth are very sore now from my wisdom teeth, and to add to my oral injuries, I have a giant canker sore on the inside of my lip which prevents me from eating anything but soft, mild foods.
And more overwhelming news, I've recently acquired a puppy.
His name is Luke, he's a lab-maltese mix, and he's 8 weeks old. And we just got him this morning, so he's not even been with us a day. He's quite the handful already.
I'm not ready for a dog, but my parents got him on a whim this morning, (which I think is a bad idea, but they said they're gonna stick with it, so okay), and I really like him. ;-; He's really sweet and cute, but he just adds to my stress list, and as I'm writing this, he is pulling on my pant leg. :'I <333
Anyway, all this overwhelming stress has led me to suddenly become very emotional and panicky and nervous, (hence my most recent poll), and has also led me to just start crying uncontrollably. I'm talking heavy sobbing, gross snot, ugly crying face kind of crying. It's pretty bad.
So I'm very unhappy lately, and while I'm hoping all of it ends by the time these surgeries are over, I still feel really uneasy. So please be aware that this may also affect art output.
Thanks for your patience, I really appreciate it.
P.S. I should probably start calling myself Neb or Nebby or Bae before my new watchers get confused.
Sat Sep 6, 2014, 1:52 PM
Okay, so I'm slowly but surely getting through the VERY FEW commissions I have, but I do have tons and tons of little doodles for you guys as well as some shit I've been experimenting with and also some adoptable designs I need to finish.
So while that itself isn't too important, I put up this journal to list just a few updates that have happened recently.
Yesterday, I went to an oral surgeon's office as well as my local ENT to discuss surgeries that are now required that I have.
Recently, my teeth have been very sore, and while I knew that my upper wisdom teeth were coming in, I couldn't feel my lower ones. I went to visit the oral surgeon yesterday and had an x-ray done, and basically, my lower wisdom teeth are impacted, and LITERALLY HORIZONTAL. Meaning they're not going through the surface of my gums but staying below, and actually pushing my lower teeth together very hard, and causing my teeth to ache. I've set up the surgery to remove my wisdom teeth on September the 16th, so hopefully no more pain or anything, but this might be bad for my art for a while.
Also, as of yesterday, I am inflicted with tonsillitis, which is definitely not as bad as the rare actinomyces I have, but it just proves how bad my tonsils really are. I should be getting the surgery to remove them sometime in October or November, but that will depend on when my antibiotics for my wisdom teeth end, as apparently you bleed a lot more after having antibiotics in your system.
The surgery for my tonsils sounds scary, since they are literally going to laser out my tonsils, but is apparently less painful than the other option, which would just be cutting them out. Both surgeries will take no more than maybe 15-20 minutes to finish, but I'll be recovering from both for quite a while afterwards. Apparently, the older you get, the more painful these surgeries are.
Guess who JUST TURNED 21.
So with that said, I'll try and crack down on uploading what I want to upload before my surgery on the 16th, and hopefully everyone will be happy with me, ughhhh.
Sorry for falling off the face of the earth there for a while, college has been kicking my ass.
Tue Sep 2, 2014, 2:43 PM
I have sort of made myself scarce on here, and I feel bad about it because I have not really been working on commissions recently, but my own projects, that I have taken care not to upload here, or anywhere else really. I may upload them later if I remember to.
I am working on commissions now, though, and I'm sort of almost done with them. Just need to line and color them, which won't take too long.
I'm not really in a great mood lately, though. I think part of it is just not really wanting to talk to people lately, but also feeling really conflicted because I'm lonely, and the only friends I have are internet friends.
I'm alone at home a lot, and I have nothing but my drawings to keep me company anymore. I feel kind of...weirdly neutral about being alone now. I'm okay with it, but I'm not at the same time. I don't know.
I'm almost done working on one commission, then it's onto finishing the rest of the other one. Sorry for the lateness, commissioners.
Please be patient, though. I will work when I am comfortable.
Sun Aug 17, 2014, 4:32 PM
Wow, summer's over already. I feel really unaccomplished.
Anyway, basically wanted to say that my college classes start tomorrow. Due to idiot people, my original classes I had signed up for about a month ago were dropped, and I had to re-register for them just a couple of days ago. So because I lost all of them, I only got 3 classes out of the original 5. All online courses again, ironically.
I've been stuck in an art block, so I'm really sorry about my slump/absence recently. You all might wanna get used to it since I will be busy with college though. Therefore, while I am still working on commissions, they're just going...much slower. :c I will finish them soon, I hope, I can't give a clear date, but if you're nervous, you can ask for progress images, or take a look at my "Quests" section on my page. That'll tell you roughly where I am in your commission.
For those of you still enjoying the summer days: Enjoy them while they last! For those in school now: Hope you do well in class, and that you're having a good time. uvu
Fri Aug 8, 2014, 5:46 PM
Gonna open commissions to raise money to get books for college, because lord knows that shit's expensive as hell. :c
I need to make new examples too, ugh. ;-;
Anyway, here's what's open!
$10 journal commissions! Simple animations are allowed, (such as blinking), but complex animated backgrounds, left/center align, or more than 2 characters are not allowed this time around. Sorry!
$5 journal/page dolls!
$8 pixel art! (made to fit your page width)
$12 original monster designs! (I'll need the "creature mix" you want as well as colors you're looking for)
If you guys want commissions, you can comment here or note me! I make a list and go in order no matter what type of commission it is, so some might take longer than others depending on the commission!
Just wanted to let everyone know. Thanks for reading! <333
Thu Aug 7, 2014, 3:37 PM
When I was much younger, my cousin Hemingwayy and I used to be avid deviantART visitors. We were the young kind of kids that spent all night watching anime and writing fanfiction and RPs and drawing characters, (or trying to), and we pulled a lot of our influence from other people, namely those on deviantART. Obviously, we didn't hold a candle to those people, but it was always nice just searching for the artwork and finding new pieces to stare at since we always longed to be able to draw like that.
As a person, I was shy and soft-spoken for most of my life, and was considered to be a loner a lot for doing nothing but drawing. But when I was drawing, I felt so much more than just a girl who sat at the back of the class, I didn't feel lonely. I didn't feel like I had no friends, because as sad as it sounds, I felt like my drawings and characters were my friends. They were the people I could count on and rely on when I felt bad, and when I felt like I didn't have anyone to talk to, I'd draw, and I'd feel all that sadness wash away as the pencil hit the paper.
When my shyness and quiet exterior finally cracked and broke in high school, I felt more open, and more eager to make friends. I felt like I needed to make friends. I'd never forget my characters, (I still haven't!), but I needed to make memories for myself to look back on other than just drawing. And when I did, I began to see more inspirations for my art, and I started to come up with more ideas to try and sketch out. And when people seemed to enjoy these creations, I felt like maybe I was ready to show people "my friends," both the real ones and the artistic media ones.
When I was in middle school, I joined, and attempted to put my work out there, (with ZERO success), and soon deleted my account afterward. After trying again about a year later, I never logged in again, and I forgot the account password, and never went back.
I started Flipnote Hatena around that time, and I guess that's where the name "Rev" really stuck. I met the people who would soon be a part of my life here on dA as well! (cough, Shincovi,coyotesoot,LostBeat,Acer0, and many others) <33
When it was time to leave Flipnote for a better place, I made a new account here under the same name as my Flipnote username, and was only able to upload traditional pieces, much to my dismay.
At that point, I was just looking at all the great art my friends posted that really inspired me. Like theeeesssee~
As soon as I got a tablet, though, the art really began to excite me and make me a lot happier. I tried so hard to be like everyone else with my art, a desire I'm guilty of doing from time to time still, but when I wound up with the inability and determination to do so, I felt more and more unable to deliver on it. I continued trying, but in small steps.
This was my first official drawing on my tablet, which I hate now, ew:
I knew nothing about how a good artist becomes good. And some part of me may not ever, but after a while of being submerged in dA and really getting to know people like Shincovi and coyotesoot, and even meeting new people like Kiibie, Keesness, and HarmonyDissonance did I really begin to understand that I didn't really have to force myself to become good just so I wasn't left in the dust. I had to learn that I needed to practice at my own pace, and that I had to understand that my art is mine and mine alone, and I am not reliant on others to grow and develop.
But that didn't mean that I still wouldn't try to let up on improving.
I began accepting commissions, and I felt myself actually becoming better with things that I wasn't good with before.
Take these two images. The first is my VERY first
I also started becoming more involved with designs and colors. Colors have always been amazing to me, because there are so many and there are so many ways to combine them. And then there are so many different designs to be made with all those combinations. And part of me has this unrealistic dream to find and create all these new designs and creatures just to show everyone how much I LOVE to find all those combos.
I'm not a popular artist. I don't have thousands of watchers, or an original species that people are willing to die for, or commissions that are full all the time and in high demand. I can't draw realistically, or paint digitally. People don't flock to me as they do for others, and I'm not well known at all. But I am grateful for all the watchers I do have, and all the people that are willing to spend their hard-earned money on me and my art, and all the compliments and feedback I receive. I'm not the best, but I am getting better. I've come a long way. And I want to keep going, and keep improving.
I want to remake this drawing, my first "most popular deviation," after I have learned enough to really revisit it:
I really didn't mean to make this so long, but I did want to convey just how much this place has meant in terms of learning and growing as an individual.
Thank you all, both the good and the bad.
