Well, last week my computer stopped working due to a fried power supply.  Luckily, it was the only thing to go, and I was able to salvage the harddrive.  I'd promised myself that the next time the thing died, I would build a new one, so after a week of tweaking, I'm on an all new rig.  16gb of ram, 3.9 ghz processor, ssd for the bigger programs, the works.  It's performing like a dream, and no more worrying about how many files I have open before it crashes.  XD  

In any case, I decided to start up my art-related Facebook account.  There is almost nothing on it right now, but here's the url:
www.facebook.com/artistmeli

I plan to still be checking DA about once a week, but if you want to contact me, facebook will be the more reliable place to do so.  

So, I think I've decided... I will still post art here, but I will also be starting a Facebook page where I'll link my art and do most of my correspondence.  Feels like a good compromise!  It's just too hard to keep up with so many different social websites.

For the 30 Day Monster Girl Challenge.  A lovely little Kitsune.

I had this finished months ago, but I had some delusion that I'd do all 30 and post them in order.  Hah!  Anyway, Happy Halloween!

Hmm... Facebook?

I'm thinking of moving my stuff to Facebook.  Honestly, I'll probably still post art here, but the communication on this site has pretty much died out, and I find myself checking things less and less frequently.  I like Tumblr, but I find it really difficult for correspondence and a horrible drain on both my RAM and my attention span. ^_^;;;  Facebook is much easier for me to keep up with on a daily basis, and makes interacting with people both easier and more personal.  Anyway, I'll have to find time to do that somewhere between working on commissions and making a game. :P

Man, running a business is super time-consuming.  XD

Unfortunately I don't, I just don't have the time anymore.  :(  I do take commissions sometimes, but right now I'm working on a video game, so I can only take major commissions at $100+.

Happy Halloween! Pumpkin La 

You know these yokai you're drawing would look really cute as like stickers. You should sell them at a con or something. Maybe a button? I really want a button maker someday > _ <

Thanks!  Hope you had a Happy Halloween as well. ^_^  I've thought about doing art cards for the monster girls, or a very small art book!  Right now all my time/effort are going into the game, though.

Oh I know the game must be eating up all your time. >_< Plus, computer issues. Well, there's no rush. You can make stuff anytime. I have been thinking of making some cool fanart for your game. It's so pretty. :D

1. At least 2 people in this world love you so much they would die for you.

2. At least 15 people in this world love you in some way.

3.The only reason anyone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you.

4. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you.

5. Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.

6. You mean the world to someone.

7. If not for you, someone may not be living.

8. You are special and unique.

9. Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.

10. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it.

11. When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look: you most likely turned your back on the world.

12. When you think you have no chance of getting what you want, you probably won't get it, but if you believe in yourself, probably, sooner or later, you will get it.

13. Always remember the compliments you received. Forget about the rude remarks.

14. Always tell someone how you feel about them; you will feel much better when they know.

15. If you have a great friend, take the time to let them know that they are great.

Add this as a comment to ten of your friends tonight and at midnight your true love will find you. Something good will happen to you at 2:25 tomorrow. Get ready for the biggest shock of your life. Whoever breaks this chain letter will be cursed with 10 relationship problems for the next ten years tag ur it!! this is so scary!!! send this to 15 ppl in the next 143 min. and then press F6 and your crushes name will appear in big letters!! it is so scary because it works.... but if you break the chain.. you will be cursed w/ relationship problems. NO SEND BACKS If u have less than 15 friends it
