Right! Let's do this!! :'D ...Now I won't limit this contest too much, but the main subject is "headacanon" So if you feel unconfident about your art (I'm sure it's wonderful) I won't be just judging the entires based on skills in art but the most intresting/cute/sad/ and so on headcanon! So be creative :'D Enter have fun!! Heres your chance to play around with my two charactors! If you already have a headcanon for them, use that! Headcanon?

Heres to 2014! As yet another year comes to a close, I really am very excited to say that 2014 promises to be a good year! At least I really think so! (hope So) I have some big goals for next year! Getting my thesis finished as good as possible, writing more of ZP and starting work on my second webcomic! Fixing up the ZP website in entirety, Opening up some stuff in my online shop! a huge shout out and thanks to Dreamkeepers who has offered to help me publish Zoophobia’s first book, and for being very patient with me during this busy busy year! I actually want to try to complete ‘Book One’ in entirety before publishing, but once this year is over I should be able to work full time on ZP so that would be relatively soon after I’d say!! I want the first book to be complete and full of fun stuff, concept art, and have a big presentation and maybe a ki
Advice About Scholarships n' ArtistsHi! I'm currently applying for scholarships for myself for Art Education, but I discovered a lot of things people have never told me before when applying for scholarships. I really want to share this with others to insure that people get their knowledge's worth when they apply for these things. Some of this you may know this info, some of them you don't.You can encourperate art into this, so stay tuned!The Thing About ScholarshipsApply to them all. You have very little chance in winning big grand scholarships (not to say that you can't!) so applying to small ones will make your chances greater. Sure some are just $500-$1000 dollars, but once you accumulate a lot of them, that's when the numbers add up! Besides, it won't hurt to apply to a lot right? Also check for deadlines- those can creep up on you.Your Intended CollegeWhether it's a community, public, or private;

Can I ask a question...? (Religious)Alright, I'll probably get shit for this but I am seriously curious... What the hell is up with all these young people becoming Satanists? [Please forgive that awful pun... |D] I mean honestly... do you even know what a Satanist is? What they do? What you're getting into?This isn't just a 'walk in walk out' kind of thing... What drives people to become Satanists? More so young people...I mean really... What convinces you?Are you trying to stick out, be different, be edgy? What? Look, if you were BORN into the religion fine... but if you willingly, openly, and nonchalantly just walked into that religion I suggest you rethink what you're claiming to be. Satanism isn't what they show you on TV with shows like 'Supernatural' where the demons are these hot men and all's well ends well, okay? It's not that at all. I'm all for free choice but when I see so many teenagers walking into a religion that

A fun question regarding censorshipI received this fantastic question from :iconcopperchipmunk: back in October (to which I did respond quickly) and have wanted to share my answer to a wider audience/ open myself to the opportunity of being persuaded to think differently if a better viewpoint is made (although I only just now remembered to do it). "Hi again Mr. Bates,Listen, i'm working on something for school and my teacher said I should contact you and ask you something you should most definitely have an opinion about.What are your views on the unnecessary censoring of children's cartoons, comics, and 20th century books? Do you believe the parents are being too censor-happy with some of these, or do you support their decision?Examples: To Kill a Mockingbird was banned from schools because it "promotes white supremacy" when actually, it doesn't.Derpy Hooves has been edited in My Little Pony because she was "offensive to the disabled" when actually, she ISN'T.Writers and artists are being shunned or forced to
Comics MentorThe responses I received to the last journal entry about the difficulty of breaking into the comic industry were really uplifting. It was awesome to see the next generation and my future co-workers /rivals fire!!!Here's another article, this time on mentoring written by Steve Lieber .I'm proud to say that Steve actually became a mentor of mine, (one of many) when I found my way to Periscope Studio. If it weren't for him I wouldn't be a professional today. Most of the professional etiquette I know comes directly from his years of experience and hard work in the industry. And before that, he learned from his own mentors! I think its super cool to finally become a part of this chain, and I hope someday I'll have the chance to help forge the next link. When I was alone and miserable trying to find my way into this industry, into ANY creative industry, I vowed if I ever made it I would turn aro
New years - art theft, notes, confidence.Thanks for all the birthday wishes guys, it was a good one.On the topic of notes - I have some anxiety about opening my DA inbox. I like the idea of keeping in contact with all of the nice people on here who enjoy my work and have nice things to say to me but Im always afraid there will be a note telling me something awful, like wishing for to die of cancer (someone actually sent me one like that before). It's sad that because of a few bad apples, it keeps me from enjoying any of the good ones. It's probably only 1/100 notes like that, and maybe its an irrational thing to worry about, but I'm a deeply sensitive person and have been since my earliest years so I dont think Im ever going to form the "tough skin" which allows to brush off negativity. Self hatred is already a big internal problem for me so I cant deal with hate from external sources. I just cant. My only solution is to hide, and live in a relatively isolated bubble. It's also why I rarely log on to DA in the first place. S
