Music video and life update!Firstly here's my latest freelance work, it's a horror themed animated music video, that's based on a story called Dark Amelia by Sally O'Reilly.The song was written by Darla and the Blonde, and it was inspired by the story itself.We went down a very 'motion graphic' approach to the animation which makes a change for me! It was fun to work on. Collaborating with a writer and musicians was a great experience!Now as for the boring life stuff, some of you here will know I'm going to be moving flats soon. My housemates/landlords are moving out to their new house just before Christmas so we've had to flat hunt super rapido! Luckily we've found a place now and we're awaiting all the paper work etc. So I've got a super busy month ahead with the potential to not have Internet for a brief period of time because of this as well. So bit of a heads up there really! And

Official music video to Light Through the DayHey everyone! Super quick update from me because I need to run around and sort out friends wedding things. I only finished baking for them at 00.30 AM this morning... So yeah I'll be away this weekend helping out and attending a friends wedding. Anyway couple of things, firstly I started a Graphic Designer and Multimedia Developer job full time this week so I'll be able to support my freelance work. I've only been there a couple of days but I'm enjoying it so far, the team are friendly and helpful, and I can see some fun challenges ahead!In other news my animated music video to Light Through the Day is composed by Alexander Chapman Campbell as part of his album, Sketches of Light. It was produced by The Smalls and Decca Records/Universal music. Took a little while for release but it's finally here! Hope you all like it! Any likes, shares, tweets etc would be much appreciated. Most of all I hope you all like it! I got to speak to Alexander directly whilst working on thi
My deviantART StoryI was introduced to deviantART by a friend who is no longer active on here. I joined 10 years ago and it's been an amazing journey so far. I started off just posting mostly animé/game inspired drawings and fan art to get feedback from the community. It wasn't until many years of lurking that I finally started to open out and post in the forums. Over time I got to know more deviants and I made some great friends as a result. The only other site I was a real part of was legendofzelda.com, where I also made some great friends over the years!deviantART has grown so much over the years and the artists in every gallery on here is absolutely amazing. Initially it was more about the fan art and game art that I was interested in, and over time as I learnt more as a student and started seeing more of the world, my appreciation for every form of art grew with it. In fact I touch on many areas of art and design, did you guys know I did origami as well?

Make 2015 awesome!A new year started. So some words of inspiration for those that want to pursue art this year... Don't worry about your age. Do not get discouraged by those that are younger than you and better. Some people start art when they are 6 years old and are prodigy's at age 16, others make a rather late or slow start. It doesn't matter if you're 10 or 80 years old. You're never too old to learn something new, and you're never too old to do something you enjoy. Everybody has potential. Even the greatest masters in art started out as beginners. It just takes a lot of time and persistence. Don't be afraid to fail. Most masters have failed more times than any beginner even tried. We only see the best from other people, and compare it with our own average. For every amazing painting a good artist puts online, he probably made 100 failed sketches. Sketches you'll never see and you'll never know o
Using HTML on deviantARTHello!Hello and welcome to my little html tutorial. I've been working with html codes for a couple of years and I'm going to teach you what I know about using some basic html on deviantART. This won't make you a html expert or something and I'm not an expert myself but it will give just enough knowledge to make your journals, comments, news articles and other neat and lovely looking. deviantART actually has FAQs about html but I still wanted to do this because they look a bit unorganized, in my opinion. Also, why would you want to look for those FAQs when you can just open this news article where you have everything in one place? You may already know some of these, but I hope you'll find at least something helpful in this news article.Some basic htmlBold text: <b>insert text here</b> Result: Example textThis html code will work in: journal entries, group blogs, comments, artist's commen

In my experience I have come across many Lesbians who just thought they were a Lesbian.

If you are a Lesbian and questioning what type of Lesbian you are, then this guide is for you![Bullet; Pink] [Bullet; Orange] [Bullet; Yellow] [Bullet; Green] [Bullet; Blue] [Bullet; Purple] [Pride] [Bullet; Purple] [Bullet; Blue] [Bullet; Green] [Bullet; Yellow] [Bullet; Orange] [Bullet; Pink] LesbianLesbian is a term most widely used in the English language to describe sexual and romantic desire between females.
