Jumping in graves

  • Listening to: Rabbia E Tarantella by Ennio Morricone

Posting here before my sub runs out. It's like embracing death. I quite like the new journal submission interface. •u•

EDIT: Thank you so much for the subscription, WTHat. I'll stay here until it runs out. <33

Hello! Wow it's like motherfucking ages since I wrote a journal here. Sorry for the inconsistent postings these days. I think I reached the ultimate stage of being an old person where routines and schedules have beaten my drawing time into a pulp. I spend most of my days doing freelance projects online and offline and being a total retard at any volunteer program I get invited to. I'd never thought I'd see the day when I have a 6 month gap in my DA journals, I mean like.. I used to check this place daily, haha woah mother of god.

I got hit by the work and life truck and haven't recovered since. tumblr and Twitter have taken over my life as well. I hardly draw these days but there are times when inspiration graces my empty head. I've been taking programming and language courses so my brain is kind of dead. I'm still saving up for eye surgery so I can qualify for my private pilot course. oohmygod I hope island life won't destroy my city-dwelling ass. Once I'm done there I'll be moving out of the country, hopefully when I travel I can obtain a job visa that will allow me to root myself in London or Spain. Closest is ORSTRAHLEAAA, land of my radical relatives. Either one is good, the future looks bright and I'm not looking back.

I'll be posting less here but you can always see me on tumblr, it's easier to upload stuff there *coughsimpleimagehostingcough* since I like a lot of things and it's full of inspiring stuff. It's easier for regular posting and writing random stuff that pops up in my head all the time. I'll be making a database/wiki thing for my Chaos comic as well, just have to compile the writings. My mind shut down when I was confronted by 607 topics in my laptop. I'm trying to get better at art and life in general, though art is not my main priority.. programming is awesome, man. Dem goddamn numbers and the wonders of science, dayuuummm.

I'll be posting commissions and art that I owe to others soon. Take care and see you on tumblr or irl. ilu.

Holyshit HI my social skills have gone out the window forever along with my sleep cycle. So many fake smiles and handshakes. I bought so many nice things on my trips, one thing I noticed is the amount of hipstery stuff pretty much everywhere when I went shopping. I also bought a ladybird beanie. It is the single most fucking AWESOME thing I have ever purchased.

I needed a haircut since the beginning of my trip but that's not important anymore. Sometimes I hang out at coffeeshops and other places so long until I forget its time to go home, I feel so free.

Free like this, motherfuckers.
Photobucket

Thailand was cold, and really awesome. I'm going back again in Febuary (hopefully) for the Designer Drugs gig djskfjdslgfjd ohgod their remixes are like woah ok. I can't wait to celebrate New Year and get ready to do more volunteer stuff in 2011, it's time I made myself somewhat useful to the world and try out moar guns in Myanmar. It was really scary to actually hold a real gun let alone shoot it. Trivial matter to those of you who possess firearms, for me it's a big deal ok, let this noob savor the moment.

So um..I have a lot of catching up to do. I might be moving a lot next year but the P.O. box address will always be the same. If I mail anything to you guys, don't be weirded out by the new address, it's my deposit box. I hope you had a nice Christmas and I wish you all a Happy New Year.

2011 is going to be awesome. My passport will be spammed with shitty stamps and raped by countless immigration officers. Long live Myanmar and the golden triangle.

HELLO.

Gonna break out the champagne because the plane didn't crash in the Golden Triangle. :iconzomgwtfplz:


My friend was talking about this guy that had a deal with him on Thursday since I wasn't around. We'll call the guy Ronery. Rizal is my friend. They had lunch and Ronery said he wanted to order more food so he went out to get more rice, Rizal usually suffers from severe ADHD (like Lotty-sama, another of my good friends but more Swedish) and we always believed he was mentally retarded. Rizal got tired of waiting and took Ronery's cellphone to look at his pic folder because he was bored. He realized that all the text messages on his customer's phone were all the same. They all belonged to Ronery himself. Rizal restrained himself from blacking out because of the fail. He had to email me.

"Guy txts to himself. Totally not shitting you. *X-FILES MUSIC*"

I laughed in the airport because I'm stupid and easily amused. Sorry.

Ronery then sent 7 text messages to me on Friday. I didn't answer them because it was fucking creepy in a sad and deluded way. (FUCK YOU RIZAL FOR GIVING OUT MY NUMBER LOLOLOL). Thank god it was only the number for my public phone.

I checked the other messages. Two of those were addressed to another girl.. wth.

"Hey Aria grl, jom minum nak?" (Translation: Hey Aria, do you want to drink?)
"Weiiii call me, Ari :)"

I thought maybe he sent 7 messages to the wrong person but I saw my name on the others too. He gmailed me. There was also a huge emo poem which he sent to me, reading it gave me goosebumps because it was so cheesy and corny.

"Wassup. Where are you now? :)"

"Vietnam."

"Huh. Where?"

I sent him a map of Vietnam.
Photobucket

He replied with
"???? Eh, wanna go for a drink? :)"

I can't reply because my hands were glued to my face for two hours after reading that. I always run into the funniest folk, my life is a glorious chain of wtf moments and 15% of my life is spent facepalming.

If I ever meet him for a deal, I will accidentally spill hot coffee all over him. Like UGHGDJH DURR OOOOOPPPS I HAVE THE DEXTERITY OF A DYING WHALE TODAY HURRRRRRRRRRRRR SORRY then run away so I can get hit by a car.

Oh and I come from a sullen third world country, no Halloween for us so we went to a club for some drinks. Too many rapists in Malaysia, no trick or treating. :iconbawplz: I hope you guys celebrated it in some way or something. Eat lots of candy and get cardiac arrest in the name of those that you love. <3

Herro beautiful people. I got my phones back and I am HAPPY ONCE MORE, THE SUN SHINES OUT MY ASS WHEN I WALK. old hag has a story to share.

This was found in my gmail inbox. I know it's tl;dr but I trust you guys to have a good grasp of basic English reading skills.

----

subject: Enough

I guess you can read from the text stated above. We’ve been friends on DeviantArt. We were both in the same fandoms (that’s all I’m giving out, you KNOW ME), seems recently you’ve been involved on the other side of things. I can’t find anything in common with you any more. You ignore me just like the rest. Surely if you have time to post here, then you aren’t that busy.

I’m tired of your work, your jobs, and of course the barrier that has formed between us. I feel useless and worthless yet there is nobody who can comfort me in times like these. All my friends have been doing this to me, I want to lose it and scream. Have you ever felt so hopeless and wretched that you cannot go on any longer? In July I suffered a nervous breakdown and I wanted to kill myself. Everyone leaves when you need support the most, that is why I sent you that e-mail prior to this, but you didn’t even care at all. I sent it to all of my so-called -FRIENDS-. You do not sound cordial or personal at all, just like the others that have fooled me. Yes Toten, no matter how much you stress on it, you are NOT HONEST AT ALL. I can judge that from your journals and twits on Twitter, you never spoke like that when I first knew you. You do not talk like that and you don’t even tell us what kind of job you have. I don’t even know any more. You just, don’t care about anyone. Any more.

When I saw the friends you’ve met, I can honestly say they will bring you down and you will hit ROCK BOTTEM. Partying and socializing is not the cure to everything, posers do that all the time. You are clearly trying to fit in even though you don’t want to. Listen to yourself instead of others sometime, grow a spine. No matter how much you party, reality SLAPS you in the fucking face. Everything with you now is just friends, party, materialism and travel. What happened to the friend I knew? We chatted for hours at home when you were still in college. You had time to draw and make inspiring comics. This morning I woke up with a clear conscience, I gazed upon my sketchbooks and the chats we used to have. You don’t even draw them anymore, why bother. I knew it was time to end this friendship. I can do without a friend with three houses and three faces to go along with them. Enjoy your so-called life, one day when you’ll see what I’ve been trying to say, you will know the truth. If you ever want to salvage the friendship, don’t bother. The deed has been done, the doors are no longer open for people like you. Good luck… and goodbye.


----

The email was sent at 10am++ at their timezone I think? I was having dinner after a meeting. I showed everyone at the table and I can only sum up everyone’s faces in one line:

UMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.

Seriously, just picture a bunch of grown women and businessmen leaning back.

The food was kinda slow so I replied:

wow i am literally in tears when i viewed this on my blurberry, i almost drowned everyone. ok so from this i gather that your friendships are based on giftart and online asspats when you feel suicidal. cool story bro, but after getting this job, it’s hard to avoid alcohol and partying so hear me out since i’m not a basement dweller who’s struggling in a college for people seven years her junior with no improvements in the past 6 years and is living with her parents at the age of 25. you can call me corrupted, but i am not immoral otherwise i’d be shoving puppies into my mouth during lunch hours before mutilating everyone in a nursing home, earning $5 for every eyeball. dude there were campaigns in july, fuck all to answering emails omgggg like go run to your mother. seriously

oh i don’t have three houses btw, four actually. i’m looking for a new terrace in town on saturday, i have no landed property located in central areas and it’s near a lot of restaurants. i promise not to grovel at your rly awesome door of forgiveness when i’m high. i wanted to invite you to southern indonesia because you sound like you need it. but since i’m never going to be forgiven i am going to dab at my eyes with tissue now and hope my boss and clientele never remember this. did you ever think that jobs are for the sole reason for earning money and not street cred? daaaaayumm i thought we’re both out of high school by now, man


----

But seriously this is what I get in my inboxes occasionally.  That’s why I appreciate things like these, it’s entertaining when all the newspapers are unavailable during dinner, prime reading material ok. It’s like using twitter whenever I eat breakfast.

On another note, I finally had time to organize my stuff accordingly. Recently I’ve been trying to arrange everything in one room to see how much stuff I actually use. I occupy the smallest area in the house, so it’ll be easy to pack up and move if the situation arises. When I came back from my trip, there were several packages for me and one of them is from the lovely bumble-boo whom I purchased these badges and bookmarks from. She was really helpful and friendly and I appreciate it. Thanks again! I’m definitely ordering again when new items are available.

Hello I'm off to London. I take so long to update on things, it's sad. Wow more travel, like what the fuck is this supposed to do, enrich my life? LMFAO. Look at some the well wishes I got. Magical just like all the text messages I received, I love my friends. I’m very tired. My friends keep me awake at the most crucial moments and I am dying, I die all day from lethargy and smoking. I want to sleep forever and never give a shit.

J/: GET ARRESTED. MAKE HISTORY. DIE. LIKE CHE GUEVARA

Sira: swear i’ll be your cabana girl if you get me a longchamp bag. it’s very important for my college lifestyle.
Traficante: mygod sira stop being such a lesbian
Sira: WELL I CAN’T CHANGE HOW LESBIAN I AM, DICKHEAD.

checkers: BE AN ANNOYING TOURIST THERE. USE FOUR CAMERAS AND EIGHT DIGITAL CARDS. REMEMBER JUST LIKE WE DID IN MOTHERFUCKING SANTORINI. TAKE PICTURES OF LONDON BIRDS. LONDON TRASH. LONDON STONES. LONDON AIR. LONDON CLOUDS. LONDON TREES. AND BUY ME THINGS. BUY LONDON THINGS.

Traficante_IV: DON’T DIE. I WILL BURN YOUR HOUSES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

[Eve]: 20 bucks says you’re getting deported, HA HA.

Life teaches me many things. I learn a lot and this is how I feel as each day goes by. Break things, hug everyone, have fun. Swear a lot and ignore people because IT GUARANTEES VICTORY. ONLY GIVE A SHIT ABOUT THEM WHEN THEY GIVE A SHIT ABOUT YOU.

Photobucket

Um so I'll be in the land of shitwater OOOPS I mean tea. Commissions will resume when I'm back on the 8th. BRB EATING SCONES LIKE THIS:

Commissions

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 29, 2010, 1:53 AM
Hey guys, I've finished most of my work so commissions are open again. Any sort of commission would really help me out now since I'm paying for extra classes in November too. Just like the previous batch, I will draw extra chibis with every order. The new work really helped with my portfolio since I'm in the midst of updating it. I'm still finishing the extra stuff I owe to neonoi and Griffiny atm. Will note you guys when I'm finished, should be finished by this week. I was a little busy helping my friends move into their new house. Thank you for the past commission orders too!

:heart:


This journal will be regularly updated and the prices are subject to change.

All prices listed here are in USD and I accept payments through Paypal. Samples are in the commission folder and also my gallery, it'll give a rough sense of what I usually draw/can draw. I reserve the right to refuse to do the commission. No refunds for the finalized product.

NOTE: If you want me to mail you your traditional media commission, shipping is $5 for registered airmail.

$15 for chibis (digital and traditional)
Samples:
Commission: machinenoi by TotenVeloren Commission: fried ice by TotenVeloren Commission 2: Pandora Diamond by TotenVeloren


$30 for inked lineart (digital and traditional)
Commission : Princeton by TotenVeloren Commission: BloodRed-Orchid by TotenVeloren Commission 1: animeluver711 by TotenVeloren


$30 for sketchy work (digital and traditional).
Commission: DivineSanguine by TotenVeloren Commission 2: DivineSanguine by TotenVeloren


$70 for a digitally coloured picture with minimal background
Samples:
Tenzaza by TotenVeloren Commission 7: YuanFanGirl by TotenVeloren


$100+ for character designs. 3 rounds of revisions with full or minimum descriptions. Extra modifications are charged for accordingly.
Commission 6: Tantrix187 by TotenVeloren Commission: Set of Three by TotenVeloren Commission: Vanga by TotenVeloren

I will not draw:

- certain fandoms
- nudity/yaoi/yuri/porn/incest
- fetish art
- porn


Please provide visual references, I don't work from lengthy descriptions/photos because that is technically design work and will cost much more. I am only drawing finalized designs of your OCs, not to create a better/more accurate version of them.

Payments first. I will provide a rough sketch for approval. Please note that I take commissions outside of DeviantArt too so please give me time to complete your commission. Once you have approved the sketch I will start pencilling and colouring. You will get the high-res file (300dpi) and the original pencil art will be mailed to you if you provide me with an address (for commissioners who ordered traditional art). The chibis will be mailed to you upon request as well.

If you'd like to commission me, please note me with the following info:

- What type of commission you want from the list.
- Your Deviantart account name when you send money through paypal.
- Your e-mail address if you want the high-res file.
- Your address if you want the art to be mailed to you (traditional media commission).
- Your character's name with links of accurate references along with additional information.


After that I will tell you where to send the money and add your name to the commission list. You can always check the commission statuses on my page. I have no set time for working, so please be patient with me. Modifications have a limit, I hate nitpicking. I will ask questions to avoid making mistakes. :)

If you want to use the artwork for anything at all, I allow it but please tell me if you wish to do so. Remember to leave credits to the artist, that's all I ask for.

I hope that clears up some things. Please note me if you have anything else to ask, thanks. 8D

I CAN'T TRUST ANYONE ANYMORE

Revised FAQ durhurrr

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 13, 2009, 9:55 AM
FAQ sheets are an excuse to ignore repetitive questions. :iconretardedplz:

New FAQ, lite version because some people have difficulties grasping the whole idea of reading and seeking information on their own, tl;dr their brain usage is below average.

----

What do I call you?
Whatever suits your fancy.

Are you a Nazi?
Hello basement dwelling internet crusader, I am not a Nazi. There are many more atrocities worse than a mass baking session in the 1940s that turned into a worldwide excuse to play the Jew card.

Always curious, are you pro-life or pro-choice?
Pro-choice all the way.

What do you do?
Illustrator/graphic designer. I'm also studying computer programming.

Where can I read your Chaos comic?
Well you won't find them here, Sherlock. Webcomics are for freeloaders. The book is currently being revamped because the 1st published book tarnished my vision.

What's a Zany?
She is my purple stuffed cat, bought on the 23rd of December 2003 by my wonderful insane younger sister and given to me as a Christmas present. Zany is named for her irregular shaped eyes and disgusting purple colour. She is the epitome of raep and desires male companions, especially fair-haired men.

I also buy her lots of pretty dresses when I'm not collecting stuff for my obscene collections, it's the only time I act like the scum of society.

Photobucket

What's your inspiration?
A lot of things inspire me..even the most tiniest of things and the simplest of events.

Do you have MSN or Yahoo?
MSN, Skype or catch me on IRC. Don't talk to me about your emo problems or ask me to help with your homework.

How long have you been drawing?
Since 2005 when my mi madre made me join an art college.

What do you use to draw?
I use Photoshop CS5, SAI, Copic markers/multiliner pens.

What religion do you follow?
In the name of the Latte, the Barista and the Holy Bean.
Amen, Starbucks.

What does Toten Veloren mean?
Literally = death lost or lost death.
It was a name of a character but I never expected it to become my name on the intrawebs lol. The word Verloren is misspelled on purpose.

If you know the German meaning, please refrain from explaining it to me, I know that you aspire to be a multilingual prodigy of some sort and feel the need to explain it to the whole internet for the sole reason of making your life better, but it doesn't, really. My eyes have gotten sore, thank you.

Why am I not on your watchlist?
SELECT FROM DeviantArt WHERE [watchlist] = ?"

Why did you make art for ___________?
I was high or something.

Do you take commissions?
Yep.

Draw me a birthday gift?
You might need to list down 4000 reasons why I should care, no repeats are allowed.

Do you take requests?
I don't draw for women. You are all women to me.

Can I use elements in your story for my own works and roleplays?
No, why not try something more productive like getting cancer?

Do you do art trades?
No. I'll ask though.

Out of the characters you made, who are your faves?
I don't really know now since I have 200+ of those bastards and I'm a fickle moron.

What kind of tablet do you have?
Cintiq, Wacom, Bamboo.

What books do you read?
A large variety of books I bought from various places. I read any types as long as it's engaging and doesn't hurt my mind. Usually my bookcase is filled with books on crime, law, war history, politics, design, illustration, programming, characters and mathematics.

Are you a drug dealer?
Nope, I sell plants. What are you talking about.

Do you have any collections? Most people do.
I collect a number of jars, tin boxes and stuff with neat packaging designs when I travel. Local toys from other cultures are also a favourite along with books from other countries. I also collect postcards and newspapers

----

If you read everything, BY GOSH YOU DESERVE A STANDING OVATION because it is hard to find people with half a braincell these days.

Well done, here's your free hug:
