Hi! My name is Alyssa. I'm a self-taught artist, and I've been drawing seriously since about 7th grade.

I have a wild imagination, and a love of story telling. I love drawing, and do it anytime I can. When I'm not drawing, I am having stories with my made up characters running through my head. I don't write down these stories as often as I should, cause I find it boring and difficult, and I'm a perfectionist. But for now I will draw about them. My dream is to one day write about and share my world and it's stories to everyone.

Please comment on my pics! I'd love advice, as well as just a good job! :D

Holiday Contest Rules: round 1 Halloween Theme

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 31, 2014, 5:11 PM
  • Mood: Sociable
  • Reading: Steve-C2's short stories
  • Watching: Star Trek: Next Generation

(Just a reminder)

I'm going to hold 3 consecutive contests based on the next 3 major holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas).

:star: Rules for each contest

1) Original/fan characters only. This means no official characters (like Sonic, Pikachu, Link, ect.). 

2) Has to be holiday themed. If your world doesn't have the actual holiday, then it's okay to incorporate something similar. (Like your world's take on the holiday.) If you do go this route, please give a little explanation of your holiday in the description. :)

3) Multiple submissions are allowed, however, only one can win. (Meaning you can't take 1st and 3rd, and such.) 

4) Submissions can be in the form of sketches, colored (traditional or digital), written, and/or comics. 

5) Advertise this journal, then give a link of your journal in the comments. (Currently, there is only a first place that will receive 350 :points:. If more people join, I'll add more places.)

6) No mature content. (Blood is allowed.)

7) Must be new content. (Draw something new. Since I know most of you, it won't be hard for me to notice. :XD:)

The first contest is Halloween Themed. It can be creepy, funny, or just plain amazing to look at. Leave an impression, make it memorable, and have fun.

:star: This contest starts now and ends at midnight (Central Timezone) on Halloween. :star:

:iconjestloo: Jestloo 
:iconmeisterbat: MeisterBat 
Contest: Priest and Guardian Angel by MeisterBat
:iconsteve-c2: Steve-C2 
:icondragontygress: DragonTygress 

Currently there is only a 1st place spot that will receive 350 :points: (per contest). If more participants arrive, I will add a 2nd (250 :points:) and maybe even a 3rd place (150 :points:).

Since I also wish to join, there will be a voting system after each contest. Once a contest ends, I will create a separate journal linking to each artist's work. Everyone will vote in the comments for their favorite (excluding their own). I will then tally the votes and announce the winner.

For those who would like to start working on the other contests early; Thanksgiving Theme is next. Again, it can be humorous, warm hearted, or anything else you want with your characters.
And since I know this time can be difficult to get around to doing art; Christmas Theme is last. 

However, do not post these early. I will make a new journal after each contest.

Feel free to ask any questions pertaining to the contest. :)

Trying to come up with the name for the Kotia version of Halloween. Zango becomes the lord of the holiday. All the words are the mix meanings of fear and darkness.

TY for the lama badge! ^^
Steve-C2 Featured By Owner 2 days ago
Yep.  Gone back to coffee of late (we didn't really stop buying it, because my wife drinks it, as well).

It is.  :D

I'm just going to hand you some info.  I will be very happy if you at least read it.  Mind you, I was of the same mind: "if it's torquing the kid, it's not being done right."  But research indicates there is not a "right" way to do it

So ... there you are.

I did read what you said.  There's a couple of things I wanted to say.
  • You spoke of broken pride, and learning humility.  I will not disagree with that result being a desirable one.  However, there is broken pride, and a broken person.  I don't want to break my child(ren, if my wife and I are so blessed).  The problem is, sometimes it is far too easy to break the pride and the person along with it.  My daughter is very sensitive so I have to be aware (and yes, careful) of that trait.
  • Kids do make "mistakes."  You are entirely correct in your observation about how children test parents.  And they test more than once.  But not everything they do is malicious.  I hated the question, "why did you do that?" after I'd misbehaved, because not every act of misbehavior was a calculated effort to rebel.  Sometimes ... "duhr."
  • Children are different and will respond to different things in different ways.  I think I've already told you that my child is not my mold for any future children I may have.
  • See the little * up there?  Basically, for those individuals who say they were spanked and better for it, I would have to say that it was done lightly, infrequently, and the overall family environment was safe.  But here again, we can far too easily cross a line between discipline and "abuse".  Personally, even without the research I linked above, I feel that the best thing is to not even approach the area.

whew.  That was a bit of typing.

I wanted you to see the research done, though.  And I wanted you to know that my thoughts on the matter are not based on personal experience, but research done by experts; so I doubt that children laying blame at parents would factor into the results of the studies.

I don't agree with spanking.  But I also don't automatically think less of parents who do it.  The important factor is that the parent do not intentionally abuse their child.  I believe we can agree on that, at least. ;)

Cheers. :)

That's what I thought. :)

Lol. That must be adorable!

(Well, there are also LOTS of people who don't do it appropriately, and children that will use any excuse as a crutch...  I was taught that violence was never an option, and have complete, undying trust in my parents, and I got whooped tons because I was the first child and learned everything the hard way. Since I don't feel like rehashing the same info that I just typed:… I explained my views pretty well, I think...)

(One swift swat and its over. Tell her why first then hug and love her after. Very simple and effective. ;) I've seen people try timeouts. They're dragged out nightmares for both parties. I think we've talked about this subject already... :XD: Glad you don't. I just hate it when people want to make it against the law. Its just a stepping stone from taking rights away from parents. I mean, it's already illegal in Europe to homeschool.)
Steve-C2 Featured By Owner 3 days ago
Oh sure, blame me. ;P

I do drink tea, it replaced coffee.  :)

I have a vid of Liz grooving to the tune. :)

(There's actually a lot, and I do mean a LOT of research out there, which supports the notion that spanking does more harm than good.  Basically the grounds are that it teaches the child that violence is a viable solution and creates an environment in which the child feels they cannot trust the parent.  That's a very fast and rather unfair broad brushstroke of the research results.  But the research has been done, and it clearly shows spanking to be not a good thing.  I would not go so far as to say those who do spank are barbaric and simple minded.  The punishment may not be creative, but it has stopped undesirable behavior (although, research has shown, for the wrong reasons).  I don't think low of anyone who spanks, though I may disagree with the practice.  :))

(And yes, I've spent time trying to think of alternatives to redirect undesirable behavior.  Yes, it is challenging).
Jestloo Featured By Owner 3 days ago  Hobbyist General Artist
Lol. For me, you're mostly the reason I never get to bed at a decent hour! :lol:

Oh, really? Now we're both part of an exotic breed! XD
(Bet it saved you money, eh? Then again, don't you drink tea? I don't know how often, though.)

Aww... :iconiloveyouplz: My dad started "indoctrinating me with his music since I was young too. (Have a picture of me as a baby with his headphones on. Lol.)

You like Yanni!? Awesome! :iconsuperw00tplz:
Lol. Having difficulty with keeping focused? ;p

(Sorry for taking so long. I was/am in a discussion about spanking. I'm pro-spanking and the other person is against it. She thinks it's evil and barbaric... And, non-directly called my dad simple minded. I'm a very honest person, even about my family. Like, my mom can't hold a tune worth beans. But my dad is anything but simple minded. He cuts to the heart of the matter and can see through people's facades. Anyway, I don't think spankings are evil. I admit that they can be abused, however. But, anything that mankind touches gets abused from its original intent.) Ok. I'm gonna shut up now. ^^;
Steve-C2 Featured By Owner 3 days ago
Yeah, same here.  I just don't win.  ;)

Neither do I ... I cut myself off of coffee completely for a while.  :)

He was ... less than happy.  :XD:

So does my daughter.  At 2, she was "dancing" to that tune.  :)

Oooohhhh ... you've named some of my favorite tunes by that composer.  :D  And you're right about the piece without the violin duel at the end is of different quality.  :)  The rain and tune combo I showed you, is pretty much a new fave of mine.  Danged if I can write while listening to it, since I'm way too busy drawing the scenery in my head ... but it is absolutely beautiful.
Jestloo Featured By Owner 3 days ago  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, I prefer to get to bed at a decent hour if I plan to get up early. But, I do get the same "drag myself out of bed" feeling when I decide to sleep in till 10am. (I should go to bed early more often...) :shrug:

I'm glad I don't have to live on coffee. ;p

Lol. I bet he jumped! XD

...I had to turn my laptop on, because the uploader didn't make it viewable for mobile users. XD
You like ...well darn it, what is that music type called? It's like an old rock and jazz mix, I think... Interesting. :)

My iPod that has +1000 songs on it. Although, I find myself returning to Yanni all of the time. My favorites are (Nightingale) (His most famous song Aria) (Key to Imagination) (Acroyali/Standing in Motion) (Within Attraction) <---(Although I love the violin dual in the end, I also suggest finding a non-live version, as I feel the emotion behind the song comes across a little clearer. (Also can't help but imagine this for a type of dance between a bride and groom for a Kotian wedding ritual. :blushes:)

Sorry for all of the links. In honesty, I just couldn't pick a favorite. ^^; There are more like, One Man's Dream, Until the Last Moment, Nice to Meet You, The Rain Must Fall, Santorini, Marching Season, Reflections of Passion :heart:, Desire, ect.
Steve-C2 Featured By Owner 3 days ago
I am surprised.  When I'm up all hours of the night, I typically have a hard time getting out of bed, even if it's 10am.  When I go to bed early, I sleep until early morning, at which point I try to fall asleep again (with or without checking stuff in between), and still have issues prying myself out of the bed.

It.  Isn't.  Fair.

In college, I once had a roommie who got up later than me.  I played this once to help him awake.

For myself, I used to put this on when getting ready.  Unfortunately it isn't long enough for me to play while shaving ... ^^;

You have anything you like to listen to in the morning?  Or when you're drawing/writing?  :)
Jestloo Featured By Owner 3 days ago  Hobbyist General Artist
lol. You'd be surprised, but I actually have no problem with waking up in the morning. I don't even need coffee. (And generally I stay away from it. It gives me problems like headaches, jitters, uneasy breathing, and sometimes a throbbing chest. Especially if I don't eat anything big with it.) My ADHD gives me boundless energy. Co-workers can't believe how awake and alert I am. XD

I ended up waking up at 3 am and decided to make myself breakfast. It was so weird to think that normally, I would have still been up an hour earlier. :o

Lol. Not sure how that would work. (Unless I gave you my phone number and then set your ringtone to be a symphony! XD) I use an alarm clock to wake myself up.
Steve-C2 Featured By Owner 3 days ago
(think "wake up call".  Of course, that would require me to get my own tukus out of the bed, so don't worry.  Unless and until I find a funny way to send a message to your iPad.  Have it start playing a symphony.  :giggle:)
