December 2011 - Pay-What-You-Want Commissions I just got a new tablet device, and I need practice with it. Please post your character requests!
I'll pick a few to draw, and if you like it, you can Paypal me as much or as little as you wish (just not nothing, please, lol). I expect a lot of replies so I can't promise I'll get to everyone, and it may be very experimental because I'm just trying things out. I don't know how long I'll be doing this. Probably until I'm comfortable with the new equipment (or I hit $451.34, the cost of the 3-year warranty - whichever comes first, hahaha).
I'll send you a note with the art and my PayPal if you are chosen. So please, request away! Happy holidays!
Alternatively, you can ask for one of my characters, and I'll do it for free. Haha...
SAMPLES SO FAR FROM GAIA:
November 2011 - Thank you! GIVEAWAY + TUTORIAL! It's been just over thirty days from my last journal entry, so to finish off my posting marathon, here is a giveaway on my tumblr! You can get an 18"x24" canvas print of the following:
EDIT, 11.23.11: I've also made a video tutorial of the process - and how I go truly between both traditional and digital media.
As of last month, I am 23. I am really, truly, grateful for the support you guys have given me on this now-fifteen-year-old project, especially for the past month. I never thought I would get this far on a fad, but I am very glad I did - and I finally am beginning to have a cohesive story to show for it. I think I've made some of my best work in these little sketches. And it's knowing that you guys actually might be reading it - that's what keeps me going a
October 2011 - Original Art + PIB! As customary with this time of year, I will be taking the next two months to solely do original artwork. Your commissions, of course, are queued up to be posted. But here is a sign of what's to come:
There will be nice, full, illustrations posted on October 20 (Little Red Riding Hood) and November 21 (something Mondigan-related). That's me and Rivek's birthday respectively. Man, I'm getting old.
I know you guys have been waiting patiently for The Undine Prince. I am happy to say the writing will be done at the end of this week, but I still need some beta-readers. I will be shipping it to the printer no later than October 20th (because I like accomplishing stuff as my birthday gift to me). I hope to have it for sale at Comickaze on November 5th!
September 2011 - ART SALE! (over) EDIT: Just an FYI, it's the LAST DAY TO ORDER COMMISSIONS if you haven't messaged me in advance.
Hey, guys! Thanks for all the support, but things are getting busy again - and the itch is kicking in to go back to my original work. So I will be CLOSING COMMISSIONS ON 9/30! Thanks!
FREE SHIPPING ON ALL ORDERS.

August 2011 - Plane tix = $$$! Find me at OTAKON! Heads up! I will be at Otakon 2011 Artist Alley tomorrow (around 5 PM EST). I will have mostly original and fanart prints, and I'll also be taking commissions! Also, I will have some poster-size prints in the Art Show! (also, after 5 PM EST).
I'd really, really, really, love if you helped me out by buying something because - thanks to an airline mishap - I have sank $1124 into this convention... and will be arriving late. I'm really not sure if I can make that much money back.
(Hell, or cheer me up by mentioning Prince or Mondigan... or even better, commission me to draw something from it...)
Here's where I'm sitting! As usual, I will be sharing with my lovely brother-from-another-mother, :iconprodigybombay:
July 2011 - Last Day to Pre-Order Undine Prince!EDIT: It's the LAST DAY to pre-order The Undine Prince. There's just 12 hours left! Wonder if we can reach $1,000!

We're fully funded!
CLICK TO PRE-ORDER (via IndieGoGo)!
Thank you for your support! We reached our goal, and this project is gonna happen! Thank you so, so, so much. I seriously can't thank you enough. Thank you! If you haven't ordered a copy yet but still want to, there are still 5 more days until the campaign ends.
All the illustrations are done, and I'm halfway done writing the story. You can expect the books in September.
"The Undine Prince" will be a short story with seve
June 2011 - Hiatus + Undine Prince, just 3 copies! For the record, I will be very sparse in responding to notes and e-mail for the next two months. I am:
Moving to a new apartment.
Releasing a new software package at work.
Taking a MSE course in game design - where I have to make a game.
Taking a MSE course in systems engineering or e-commerce website creation.
Helping out with friends' plans for three conventions.
Flying back east for my Mother's birthday.
Drawing commissions from Feburary/March/April.
I know I am already bad with answering messages, but please forgive me. I should be back on my feet August 26th.
I will be more active on Tumblr and Twitter which encourage short-form posts. If you would like to track commission progress, please follow those.
May 2011 - Kung Fu Panda! Fanime! Little Mermaid!
Kung Fu Panda 2 comes out tomorrow, and as someone who worked on it, I encourage you to see it. It's really good - trust me - it's got tear-drenching heart, jaw-dropping action, captivating visual style and for you classic folk, 2D animation! I have some more relevant pictures on my Tumblr HERE: http://gfong.tumblr.com/post/5858006569/
Also, if you re-blog my Tumblr entry, you can win a this Animation Crew T-Shirt!
Also, I will be at FANIME in San Jose for Saturday, Sunday, and Monday... looking for some karaoke hotness with my buds. However, since that's a night-time thang, I will also be holding down an art table with LannySu. I'm at T146, right in front of the staff desk.
Papyrus x Reader x SansPapyrus laughed eagerly and loudly as he and his brother Sans walked back to their stations.
“-And did you see how badly that human failed on my last puzzle?!It goes to show that I will be a great Royal Guard!NYEH HEH HEH!”Papyrus said, praising himself.Sans, who usually doesn’t leave his post (out of laziness) had to laugh also.”Is it really so hard to turn Xs into Os?” Sans chuckled.
As the Skelo-Bros neared Papyrus station, they noticed two little little legs squirming out as if they were stuck.Sans glanced over at the legs as if it was as usual as a hyper Lesser Dog, while Papyrus looked dumbstruck.”ANOTHER HUMAN?!”Papyrus yelled, more trying to get attention then being surprised.The small person automatically fell to the ground, fearfully clutching a flip-phone that had been given to her from her monster ‘guardian’.
Papyrus looked down upon the young girl as Sans merely stood back, completely cool.The girl, frozen with fear, lo
PLEASE READ - The Ransomware EpidemicPlease share, fave and spread this journal. You could help many people on DeviantArt protect their computers from this horrific cyberattack and raise awareness about the issue to those who haven't yet heard of it.
Funny how all these years of me picking and choosing updates to keep my computer functioning how I want it (you know... to have what you paid for and keep my product without others stealing it and modifying it *cough*badupdates*cough* ... basic consumer rights... but anyway) came to haunt me.
So I finally decided that I'd bite the bullet and update my updates... only to find out Windows Update was refusing to update and would forever stay stuck "searching for updates". Just my luck. When I really don't want updates they try to install, and when I really need them they don't.
Anyhow, why am I so desper
Doflamingo x Reader: Family Matters
There have been many things you have seen on Baby5’s face, but only rarely have you ever seen her looking glum. Most times you’ve seen her, she’s either exuberant, furious, or comically crying, depending on her “boyfriend” situation. Other than that, she was always relatively calm, with a slight smile.
“Little Miss, what has you feeling so down?” You walk up to her side, putting a hand on her shoulder.
“(name), I wasn’t expecting to see you.” She sighed, and then chuckled a little. “How many times have I told you to call me by my name? I don’t need to be called ‘Little Miss’.”
“I will continue calling you ‘Little Miss’ as long as I am a servant working here at the castle and you are considered Family by the Young M
