I finally got my art site up. It's for the art that I don't upload here like oekakis, doodles, experimenting and other stuff.…

I just want to become the best artist I can be and to be recognized for it. I also want to teach others what I've learned. I love learning about how the world works. I enjoy both visual and musical arts.

I got Pokemon Y on Christmas which is later than I would've typically gotten a Pokemon game. It's worth noting that I've only made it up to Arti's gym in Pokemon White2. And in Y, I've just beat the second gym leader and stopped after that. Simply put, I've just lost interest in the Pokemon games and overall, I'm just losing interest in the franchise in general. Even the anime is boring me and at this point, I'm just keeping up with new Pokemon anime-related news from Pokemore's Twitter feed. I still will draw the characters and probably think of backstories for them but overall, I'm done. 

I'm also taking a break from Nintendo as a whole. When Zelda Wii U comes out, I may consider getting it though first off I don't even have a WiiU. Right now, I'm mainly a pc gamer and I have Steam and I'm being exposed to games that I never got into or never would've gotten into. I've played Fallout: New Vegas, Rust, Minecraft and started playing Just Cause 2 and I'm glad to be exposed to new stuff.

I'm also kind of getting bored of drawing Misty and forget about doing ideas involving her. I felt they've all been done and I've just simply lost interest.

In the past 6-8 months I've discovered a new love of technology and programming. I'm also investing more time into serious painting, and money into music production equipment. 

One of my goals is that once I figure out how to paint backgrounds, I'll do a guide and try to break it down to the core principles and that's the same with the Pokemon art tutorials. So often people are taught to draw with symbols and not shapes and forms. If you learn to draw in symbols, you'll only be able to draw from one view and not use what you learn to draw in multiple views. 

Sadly, the more I've learned, the less confidence I feel in what I do.

Notice For Requests!!!

I decided that I just cannot take anymore requests right now. At first I was hesitant on not taking requests at all over allowing some requests but now I realize that it's either all or nothing at this point. However, when I do start accepting requests again, there will be a specific format I will require requesters to use so that it doesn't take me 3 messages to get the idea across.

Sorry for the inconvenience

Hello, may I please have a request? O: If so that would be great because I would totally LOVE one from you. :3 Thankies! :3

Depends on what it is.
CrystalClair, I have some questions to you of the Pokemon anime. I'd like to see your responses if you have the time:

1. With Best Wishes ending, both Iris and Cilan are confirmed to be leaving the show. How do you feel about this? Also of note, Iris will officially be the shortest-lived female lead of the series, since she will only have been around for 3 years. Thoughts?

2. Going along with above, it doesn't seem like Misty will get any cameos in BW. (Not counting flashbacks/endings, she got those in AG and DP too). This by itself isn't a big deal, but as you remember Misty didn't appear over the entire span of Sinnoh, or the Battle Frontier episodes before that.

So how you do feel that the writers haven't given Misty an episode since 2005, those eps when Ash came home from the Hoenn league? Its now been two full generations and 7 years since her last cameo, and it doesn't seem like she will appear ever again at this point. Thoughts?

3. Misty also will have never met Dawn, Iris or Cilan. Does this matter to you at all?

Thank you.

I honestly think about the Pokemon anime only on Thursday whenever new episodes air even then I just forget about Thursday sometimes.

I liked Iris and it sucks that she got only 3 years but whatever man, it's just a show. 

And about the Misty stuff, I honestly don't give a ****. I just don't really care about the anime that much anymore. At this point I only look at the pictures for hot girls like Alexis.

Why are you so fixated on Misty still? 

... at least you were polite
Well I know you stopped watching regularly during DP, only really watching the Paul episodes after a while. But I remember you being one of the most vocal Misty fans on Bulba/Serebii/Pokecommunity from 2005-2007 or so, so I was curious.

You used to be so adamant about Misty making a return and during DP especially you would look at every new title hoping for a hint of a Misty cameo. Of course Misty never did appear in DP, but at the beginning we didn't know that.

So I just have to ask, do you feel like it was worth it? Or now that you're older and look back at it, you realize, "Yeah, it was just a show, Misty was just one character of many," and leave it at that? I'm glad if that's the case, you'd be surprised as to how many people on various places are still crying over Misty and raging against the anime and the
Gonna put out a new vid soon? =P

One involving Alexa, though right now on hold, is in the works.
