I am opening up a few sketch requests, Journey (PS3) or Pokemon-related. These will be separate from the TGC Forum pics, regardless of whether you are a member. They will not be recorded or streamed, and the end result will be somewhat comparable to the following sketches:

One request per person--single character, no background, and minimal shading (if any). Note: the above samples aren't actually colored, I typically sketch in black and then colorize the entire image afterward. Feel free to either specify a color or I can choose one at random.

If you would like a request simply leave a comment on this entry or send me a note describing what you would like drawn (references are greatly appreciated!!). If I accept your request you will be listed in one of the slots above and the request will be drawn sometime during the next couple weeks. I reserve the right to decline any request for whatever reason.

Depending on the amount of interest I may do this more often. :)

My aunt is playing right now :)

I have received inquiries here and on tumblr about Journey requests--that isn't precisely what my latest deviations have been, though it is admittedly confusing! Basically, in the winter/spring I made a group pic of TGC Forum Members I talked to via Journey Chat/AugWorld. I asked everyone to describe how they would look if they were a Journeyer, and then drew them huddled together over the bridge art I did for the chat's maze.

Now I'm doing it again, but this time I am not limiting it to JChat, and have opened it up to the rest of the forum! So yes, these are requests, but that is the specific criteria I am using to limit them.

As things stand I have completed 15/30 people, but have not yet closed this to new participants so the total may increase from 30. I will likely close it if it exceeds 50 or something, but we'll see.

So... yeah. Regular requests are closed! But if you'd like to be included in this current project--join the forum! I realize joining new things can seem scarfy but the community there is really wonderful, I promise! I may open up a few separate requests in a week or so, but I will announce that separately. :)

more TGC forum stuff, possibly some unrelated scribbles

Probably going to stream a LOT over the next month or so, pretty much whenever I draw. The main point of this is so I can record the progress of the forum member pics then speed them up/cut them down into shorter videos for YouTube. Occasionally I will record without going live, but it can be nice to have company.

Fair warning--I am VERY SLOW and don't always know what I'm doing so my streams tend to last a painfully long amount of time!

BASICALLY, "hey i'll be streaming but it's no big deal pop in to say hi and then leave whenever" *wonk*




EDIT: Included con pics. Progress pics can be found in the Tumblr post linked below.

This was my first ever convention and it was SUPER FUN. I went with :iconsammeezilla:, and my initial thinking was this would be a one time thing, so why not go all out and do a different cosplay for each day? (In the future we will limit ourselves to ONE). We started working on our costumes in April. No single piece was actually made from scratch, most of our attire was purchased and then altered afterward.

On Friday I was Colonel Roy Mustang and Sammy was Izumi Curtis. ==>read more

Still taking Scarf Commissions and Scarf/Sketch requests!! Check the link at the bottom. :la:

Oh my goodness, thank you for the faves/comments/notes/watches/llamas. I haven't been on here much this past month, so my inbox was slightly overwhelming and I had to just delete all of the activity messages and journals and most of the deviations and polls. I've always tried to individually respond to everyone or least send a llama their way as a thanks (and I'm really not very popular on here so I will definitely be able to continue doing so, haha), but this is simply an apology for letting it build up to the point where everyone gets ignored. Sorry guys, and once again, thanks!

In other news, things have been pretty decent lately. I bought a 2006 Honda Civic last week (he's blue, his name is Cornelius and he is like totes the greatest). Also, my computer pissed me off for the final time yesterday so I ordered a new laptop as well.

The Wyoming trip is closing in in a just a few more weeks and I can't wait. Five days isn't going to be nearly enough, I can tell you that. I am always ridiculously happy in the months leading up to anything Wyoming-related, but at the same time I also realize that the couple months following it are really going to blow--I'll just keep thinking that it's going to be at least a year until I get to visit again, and how eventually all of my friends there will have moved/graduated and I won't have an excuse to visit anymore. *sigh*

But enough of that. I spent this past weekend running back and forth between here and Lansing (three round trips in all) and dealing with family stuff and Father's Day.

Today was Max's 12th birthday, and I think he enjoyed it despite the vet appointment and having to get a cone around his head (he keeps chewing his paws and making them bleed, and the vet has tried everything else, to no avail). He's not too pleased about the cone part, but he still had fun unwrapping his present, and I know he loved the little taste of ice cream we gave him. What a champ<3

This Thursday, Sarah and I will be running down to Toledo to see our friend Paul perform with the Glassmen, and then :iconsammeezilla: should be flying in that same night. Friday is Maria's dance recital, and Saturday will be a group outing to Cedar Point, which should be exceedingly awesome. I hope we can get a lot of people to go. :meow:

In any case, I'm tired. GOODNIGHT.

Ganked from :iconzhampy::

Question 1
Which type of Pokemon is your fave?
Idk, I don't really think I have a favorite or least favorite type. Mostly just favorite pokes.

Question 2
Which three starters are best?
I'd probably have to say Generations I and II were the best. They were so simple and clean, and the evolutions made more sense back then. Gen. III was awright, and in IV I don't care to much for any of the evolutions.

EDIT: I stopped playing Pokemon for a while after I got through Crystal, and then I bought Ruby some time after FR/LG came out. I was very displeased with a lot of the new Pokemon--it seemed like they were really running out of ideas. (The Regis make a good example of this I think, they're basically just weird, elemental robots, not to mention other Pokes such as Metagross. Don't get me wrong, I don't HATE them, I just prefer the simpler, more natural-looking creatures..)

Question 3
Which games do you have?
R/B/Y, G/S/C, Ru/Sa/E, FR/LG, D/P/Pt, HG/SS, TCG, and Ranger. Those're the games I own the hard copies of, and then I've got a couple emulators and the roms for all of those and mostly everything else on my computer.

Question 4
In the games, which gender do you normally choose?
Female when I'm given the option. Except for HG/SS, because I don't like Lyra/Kotone. I don't really care too much for her design, so I didn't want to have to look at her all the time. Also, I think in the games Ethan's character is really annoying, so if you play as him Lyra is much easier to deal with and Ethan can just take on your own personality and whatnot.

Question 5
Do you watch the anime?
SIGH. I realize it's terrible, but it's always been one of those "guilty pleasures" for me (...I feel really weird calling it that). I watched up until they changed the voice actors in Battle Frontier, and then I couldn't take it anymore and quit. The show is bad enough as it is, I didn't need terrible voices along with it. HOWEVER, I feel like it's something I need to get through, so I recently started over from the beginning, and now I'm just kinda muscling through it. :/

Question 6
How many seen in the Pokedex of your latest game?

Question 7
And how many caught in that Pokedex?
Dude, I don't even know. I only catch the things I like (which isn't many) and then whatever Legendaries I can get my hands on.

Question 8
Do you even like Pokemon?
Yeah dude.

Question 9
Do you collect the Trading Cards?
I did, and I still have most of them. I preferred playing the card game though, rather than just collecting.

Question 10
If you have the Trading Cards, do you play the game or just collect?
^See above. I stopped playing the game when they changed the weaknesses/resistances and stuff and incorporated a new layout into the cards. I liked things the way they were.

Question 11
Do you have an account on Bulbapedia?

Question 12 (Only if you said yes on question 11)
What is your username there?

Question 13
Do you have a lot of Pokemon pics/stories faved?
I suppose.

Question 14
Do you draw Pokemon?
No, never. Absolutely not.

Question 15
Do you write about Pokemon?
Ha, no.

Question 16 (Only if you said yes on 14 or 15)
Are your stories/drawings faved?
A few.

Question 17
What is your favorite Pokemon?
Idk, Mewtwo? I guess, haha. I like Gardevoir and Ampharos and Gyarados and Flygon. And Shiftry.

Question 18
And your second favorite?
^See above.

Question 19
What is your favorite legendary?

Question 20
And your second favorite legendary?
I guess I kinda dig Articuno. And Suicune. And Darkrai. Also, Land Forme Shaymin is pretty darn cute.

Question 21
Do you know what 493 is in the National Pokedex?
Yeah dude.

Question 22
What is it?
Arceus, yo.

Question 23
Would you rather have a Meowth or a Growlithe?
Growlithe, no contest. Arcanine is awesome.

Question 24
How many of your relatives like Pokemon?
Some of my cousins. My aunt recently mentioned that she'd like to play the games, provided I put the emulators and roms for them on her computer, so that's pretty cool. But to answer the original question: I suppose I have three relatives that like Pokemon.

Question 25
How often do you think about Pokemon?
Pretty often.

Question 26
Do you keep the fact you like Pokemon from your real life friends?
I don't talk about it constantly, esp. to friends who aren't interested (they can get an earful from time to time though), but yeah, everyone's pretty much aware.

Question 27
What pets do you have that resemble Pokemon?
Boca, my lutino cockatiel. Looks a lot like Pikachu--bright yellow with red cheeks.

Question 28
What Pokemon do you hate most?
I think... Pikachu... Lol.
OH AND CELEBI. I hate Celebi. D:
I also don't care for Spinda, Floatzel, Infernape, or Hippowdon. Oh, and Bronzor is annoying as hell in the games, but I heart my Bronzong (named Oogway). I also didn't care for Ditto, until I named my last one Flava Flav. Now he makes me laugh.

I don't like Probopass. Or Magnezone. Or Happiny/Blissey (I use Blissey as a tank for her insane HP stat though, but who doesn't?)

Also, I've since decided I like it from the Anime, but when I first played Ruby I didn't like Poochyena at all. I mean, I could tell it was a dog from the name, but it looked and sounded like an ugly, ridiculously furry pig. Did anyone else feel this way, or am I alone here? Lol.

Question 29
Which Eevee-lution do you like best?
Umbreon and Jolteon were pretty great back in the Generation II Metagame. I don't really take part in that stuff anymore though, and haven't looked at their movepools and such ever since.

Question 30
Which Castform Forme is best?
Normal forme-forme.

Question 31
Which Deoxys Forme is best?
Based on looks? Normal Forme. Or Attack Forme, I'm cool with either.

Question 32
Which Giratina Forme is best?
Bleh. I should've added him to the dislike list. I guess Normal Forme.

Question 33
Skymin or Shaymin?
Land Forme Shaymin FTW, though I respect Skymin's function in the metagame.

Question 34
Phione or Manaphy?
Neither. Or I guess Manaphy, but still I'd rather not have either.

Question 35
Darkrai or Cresselia?

Question 36
Gardevoir or Gallade?
Gardevoir, hands down.

Question 37
Glalie or Froslass?
Snorunt's whole line is another I can add to my dislike-list. But if I had to choose, I'd pick Glalie.

Question 38
Magmortar or Electivire?
Gross. Just gimme Magby forevurr. Also, I'd like to point out that Rhyperior (who reminds me of Grounder from The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog) looks freaking stupid. They should've left well enough alone with these guys. And that's another thing: they felt the need to screw with all these Generation I, un-evolving Pokes, but they still haven't laid a hand on Pinsir or Lapras or Kangaskhan and whoever else. I'm not asking for evos/pre-evos, just some damned continuity. They've had the same little group of people designing the Pokemon World and everything in it since the beginning, but they don't take fan submissions or anything, saying they want continuity. Yet half the Fakemon designs and stuff I see people creating on here and elsewhere on the internet are twice as refined/creative as some of the crap those guys are coming up with.

On this note, I will not be picking the grass starter in Black and White. It was love at first sight when I saw Pokabu, but I hated the water otter and grass snake something fierce (wotter's grown on me a little bit though--can't wait to see some evolutions before I make my final choice!).

Question 39
Chatot or Farfetch'd?
Farfetch'd. Though I admit Chatot's call in the games is pretty cute sounding. :meow:

Question 40
Pidgey, Spearow, Taillow or Starly?
Pidgey's line is my favorite out of these. I also do not mind Taillow. But out of curiosity why was HootHoot not included here? Not that I would have picked him, but I gotta say I didn't hate Noctowl.

Question 41
Latios or Latias?
Ehh, I'm not all that crazy about Latis. But Latias was cute as a chick in that movie.

Question 42
Kyogre or Groudon?
RAYQUAZA<--Haha, I'll keep Zhamp's answer. CAPITAL IDEA.

Question 43
Dialga or Palkia?

Question 44
Azelf, Mesprit or Uxie?
Ugh, I hate Mesprit.
Favorite to least favorite: Azelf, then Uxie, then Mesprit.

Question 45
Articuno, Zapdos or Moltres?
Zapdos has the best stats/movepool (or at least he used to, I still need to get with the times), so he's the only one I ever used, but I like Articuno the best.

Question 46
Mew or Mewtwo?
Mewtwo. Can't stand Mew.

Question 47
Lugia or Ho-Oh?

Question 48
Entei, Suicune or Raikou?
Suicune, then Entei, then Raikou, but really I don't like Raikou at all. However I still caught all three so that my Raikou/Entei/Suicune could be named James, Tiberius, and Kirk, respectively.

Question 49
Celebi or Jirachi?
Jirachi is cute even though I didn't like it in Wishmaker, and have I mentioned how much I hate Celebi? SO ANNOYING. Furthermore, why is there no Question 50? I am displeased. </endrant>

EDIT: Adding Question 50:
Team Rocket, Magma, Aqua, or Galactic?
Team Rocket, now and forever. I don't particularly like or dislike Teams Aqua or Magma, but Team Galactic can bite me. Look, I'm not saying I could've thought up anything better, but their designs are simply too dumb for me to stomach.

Oh? There is no option to tag people? Well, that simply won't do. I tag :iconsammeezilla: and :iconmr-alf: :love:

To clarify on the requests portion of things--Yes, I am taking both sketch AND scarf requests! ((see link below))  I like to challenge myself, so if there's a cool scarf you saw somewhere and you would like to see it done again, note me! It being a request, you will not be charged, though I may choose to sell the finished product afterward. If you like it it could be yours!:la:

I've received a few requests so far and they've been a lot of fun--keep 'em coming guys!

In other news, Cedar Point has been open for like a year now (really it's only been a couple weeks, but I digress) and we haven't gone yet and it's driving me nuts. Unfortunately it's also hot as balls out right now and all the schools here in southeast Michigan like to take field trips there so it'd also be crowded and miserable. All I want is to ride the Dragster and Millennium a few dozen times, is that so much to ask? Lol.

Last fall we went on closing day (November 1st) and it was chilly so there were no bugs or field trips and it was AWESOME. The end.

We have set a tentative date for the Wyoming trip. It's looking like it'll be from July 7th-14th (Wednesday to Wednesday), and it should be Sarah, Crum, :iconlisapowers:, and myself (Hey Jay, what're your plans for that week? You should fly out and meet us! :dance:). We're going to visit :iconsammeezilla:, and try to drag her out for camping with everyone, and my friend Paul will be performing with the Glassmen Drum & Bugle Corps in Denver on July 10th. And a lot of us are musicians so we'll be bringing our instruments and practicing up in the mountains. All in all it should be pretty sweet. :meow:

I can't wait til I get my next paycheck. There are so many things I need/want to buy (Think Geek devours the contents of my bank account on a regular basis) and that only adds to the list of things that are driving me crazy.

Oh, and check out my plz icon:

Hey all, guess who's finally got a moment to breathe? Damn straight!

Anyway, I've received quite a few notes (along with a handful of comments) regarding scarf orders, so I figured I might as well open them up here on deviantART. I don't have a subscription, so unfortunately I am unable to post thumbnails, but I'm going to try to make this as simple as possible (Ctrl+Click the links to open examples in new tabs):

Click here to view all Scarves/Textiles
Most of my scarves are crocheted, unless you want ruffles or a boa/tube.

Will begin at a flat fee of 35.00 USD, free shipping to anywhere in the continental United States. This price is for the simpler designs; tassels and outlining can be added at no extra cost:
Wingull Scarf<--Pokemon-ispired.
Peruvian Print
Boa - Turquoise<--Knitted in the round.
Mixed Green<--Outlined.
Mixed Blue<--Crocheted vertically (as opposed to the usual horizontal method) in order to bring out the pattern printed on the yarn. Tasseled.
Mixed Tan<--Outlined, tasseled.
Teal Scarf<--(Note that a few of the examples placed before this last one were all done with a slip stitch, but the teal scarf was crocheted with the "up and down" stitch. It creates a very cute, springy criss-cross pattern that is very fun to do.)

38.00 USD, free shipping:
School Spirit<--I have done several of these in different color combinations. This design is extremely easy to customize for any school: Solid Color/Outline/Crocheted Lettering. Tassels are optional :D

40.00 USD, free shipping:
Green Pinstripe<--Pick 2 colors; Body + Outline/Stripes/Tassels
Twisted<--Twisted yarn, knitted in the round. Must be tasseled.
Wavy<--These I don't think I will outline anymore, at least not in black; it definitely seemed a lot less cluttered until I did that. I think from now on if I do decide to outline striped scarves, I will stick to outlining the stripes individually as I go, using the same color as whatever stripe I'm working on. :meow:

45.00 USD, free shipping:
Hogwarts-Style, Blocked Stripes<--As the title suggests, these scarves are styled after the Hogwarts scarves from the Harry Potter universe--They are typically comprised of 19 stripes alternating between two colors (If you would like more than that it will raise the price a little) and are outlined and tasseled by default, though that is optional. You can see in the photo that some owners requested different dimensions/colors/lettering/outlining.
Chevron Scarf<--Up to 3 different colors, more than that will add a little to the price.
Zigzag<--AKA "The Corphish Scarf". Another one of my Pokemon-inspired creations. 2 colors, outlined.

48.00 USD, free shipping:
Diamond Scarf<--Up to 2 colors, outlined.
:new:Braided<--These I secure along the internal zigzag, at each instance where the three strands cross one another.

50.00 USD, free shipping:
Checkers<--This price covers up to 3 colors. Tassels optional.

55.00 USD, free shipping:
Ruffles<--These are knitted. The yarn is very soft, expensive, and annoying to work with, but the end result is quite beautiful. :]

60.00 USD, free shipping
Piano Keys<--This price covers up to 2 color choices--more are available upon request, but this could up the cost to as much as 75.00 USD.
Clarinet Scarf<--They do make crappy, colored, plastic clarinets IRL, so if you are interested in having a color other than black, note me and we can discuss color combinations--some colors might simply look bad with the gray keys, and it is important to me that a) you like the end result, and b) people can still tell it is a clarinet.

65.00 USD, free shipping
Music Staff, (composite photo)<--As far as colors are concerned, I'm only opening the choices up to light-ish colors in place of the white background, since I will only be using one brand/color fabric markers for the music. Aside from that though, these are customizable to whatever excerpt you would like on them; I myself chose the Saint-Saëns clarinet sonata since I am a clarinet player and it is beautiful to both the ears and eyes. Basically just be mindful of what piece you want: percussion might not look so great, for example. And if you choose an excerpt that jumps around a lot on the staff, I have to know that you're okay with me transposing it into onto one octave so it'll fit.

ALSO, these scarves make me a little nervous about washing. They will all come to you pre-washed, but the music is done free-hand on the yarn with permanent fabric markers (I have tried so many different kinds now, and nothing really seems to be as permanent as it says it is, at least when it comes to yarn). If they need to be washed, please try to do it by hand and avoid the notes (the lines on the staff are okay though, since those weren't drawn on). In the event that one of these scarves must be machine-washed, please put it on the lowest setting and try not to drown it in detergent. And a word to the wise: do NOT put them in the dryer!! Hang them on a hanger above the tub or something. I have machine-washed two of these, and both were fine until I tried to dry them, and then they ran. I panicked, but luckily washing them a second time cleaned the white right up, and now I hang them above our wash tub in the basement to air dry.


Send me a note here on dA or email me at with "Scarf Commission" in the subject. In the body state which style of scarf (listed above) you would like, whether you would like any letters/outlining/tassels done, and what colors/length you want (most will be between 6-7ft. by default, please specify if you want something longer or shorter, and whether the order will be for a child or adult).

I will respond stating whether I accept your commission offer and approximately how long it will take me (usually around 2 weeks, based on how many orders I've taken). Depending on how intricate the design is, I will send you photos of what your scarf looks like when it is about halfway done (if the design is particularly difficult I will send the photos sooner--I'd rather not complete the scarf and then find I am unable to sell it). You can tell me whether you like it or what should be changed, and based on your input I will either try to rework it and send you more photos, or I will go on and finish the scarf.

Once the scarf is complete I will ask for your mailing address and you can send your payment via PayPal to Once your payment has cleared I will ship the item. :D

If your payment does not clear or you back out, the completed item will not be sent to you, and may be posted for sale either on here, Etsy, or elsewhere. I may also choose to keep the item or give it to someone else.

Each completed piece will be posted here on deviantART, and I will mention the commissioner in the deviation description. I reserve the right to accept or deny any and all commissions.


I would also like to start taking requests, either for scarves or for sketches and the like. If you would like to request something, note me or leave a comment. If I accept your request, the completed piece will be posted here on dA. Requested pieces will not belong to or be sent to you, though you will be mentioned in the deviation description.

Completed scarves and other textiles may be posted for sale on here, Etsy, or elsewhere. I may also choose to keep them or give them to someone else. I reserve the right to accept or deny any and all requests.
