Wow, some person telling you to kill yourself. Really, who still does that? Sheesh, that person HAS to be wasting their time here... I'...

Okay, I was originally going to dedicate a drawing to this, but I’m having some major artblock which I blame on finals, so I’m just going to make it a journal.

I got diagnosed with autism. The expertise center said Classical Autism, but me and my mom are still doubting between that and Asperger’s Syndrome. Either way, it means I’m just not good at reading social situations. To me, it’s not difficult to interpret things people say, but rather what they DON’T say. You know: social contexts and some forms of non-verbal communication. Though I usually can tell certain emotions and physical cues, I can’t interpret all of them.

I’m absolutely fine with it, so is my family, and so are my friends. So far nobody’s treating me any differently, and no shit at school either. I’m having great luck bringing the news, really. :) Some people really reacted as if I announced my own funeral, though.

I personally don’t really care where I’m at on that huge spectrum called autism, to me it means the same either way: I’m going to have to see what I can and can’t do, what I can and can’t learn, etc. I’m going to have to work on myself, but that really isn’t exactly earth-shattering news after spending most of my teen years in therapy. :) To me it’s like: “Here we go again, but this time, there’s specialist help so I might make some more progress this time around.“

I just read this journal about a hacker. I'll just hold off on reposting it, could be yet another hoax. :/ As if you guys couldn't tell when I get hacked...
Hey guys, sorry I've been so inactive... AGAIN. ^^; Fo' shame, Mel!

I recently got some big news concerning myself, which involves a lot of research. As if I wasn't studying enough with finals already... :D I'm really having trouble not letting the cat out of the bag here, but I want to dedicate a drawing to it.

I'll get back to work on that big-ass project soon, and in the meantime, I guess my characters won't quite shut up either. I think the new ones I've had in the works will have to wait for a bit, but some of the existing ones have been collecting dust for way too long. I'm lookin' at you, Yvonne! >.> But in all seriousness, I really need to work on something else when I'm not busy with that project.

Project WIP
I don't always post WIPs...
:iconidontalwaysplz:
But when I do, it's Necromancers.

Yup, still working on that big project I won't shut up about. I swear, if finals weren't coming up, I would've finished this thing ages ago. Damn you, school! :shakefist: What's Sayen looking at? What's with his confusion? Are the hamsters involved? Stay tuned to find out. :D

[rant] I'm not making the progress I want, and I'm getting a little impatient with how long this whole project is taking me. I'm not even finished with the first part yet, and when I'm looking at what kind of work is still ahead of me, the whole thing looks downright daunting. I have 7 more parts to complete, which will each take me just as long or even longer and I still have to finish this one. In the meantime, ideas for new characters won't stop coming, and I can't even work on them yet, as that would just add more work to this already large project. The shaky drawing arm isn't quite helping either... [/rant]

I won't call this thing off, though. Not on my life. Not only would I disappoint a large group of people, I'd disappoint myself. Not to mention I would've also wasted hours on something I'm never going to finish. I just have to find my gonads of steel, and plan my days out better.
Loading...
Is this project I'm working on cursed or something? Every time I try and get some progress in, something BIG happens in my life that distracts me. :/

No problem ^^ I find it kind of stupid to ban someone for making adult content. Sheesh, I really respect some artists for doing just that! I tried, and boy does it require some serious mastery of poses, perspective AND anatomy... >.> I'd probably have a seperate NSFW account if I had the skill level it takes.

I just think dA could do something to both allow adult content AND keep it away from underaged people. For instance: PaperDemon.com, a site that I frequent, has a seperate part of the site for that, only accessible for 18+ people. I'd say the mods here should at least consider it. Granted you can't stop anyone from lying about their age, but that's the person's own choice in the end. ^^; I know most of us did it at least once as a teen, and there's a limit to how much responsibility the team running a site can take.

I don't think you would have some troubles with drawing NSFW - if ou want to improbe your skills - some tutorials would be enought! You have good drawings.

Oh you... Bunny Emoji-83 (Oh you) [V5] 

Looking for reference material for that kind of stuff is always kind of awkward for me, though. Not because of personal things, but I share a house with my parents... Enough said. :D Not to mention my dad has the worst timing known to mankind when it comes to walking into my room. He doesn't always remember to knock first either. ^^; I always have a SFW art on top of the NSFW sketch when I decide to try again, just in case.
