So, I have been away for so long it feels like i don't know how to be a deviant anymore. It's strange. I keep coming back here because i miss it..!
- Listening to: Sunshine - Peter Salett
- Drinking: Water
I miss writing journals, not that I have been good at it.
I've only been away for a few months to find out that you can actually change your username? Since when? How did that happen?
Should I change mine into Fatmalovestodraw instead of my Toma7?
Anyways, I doubt that anybody still reads my journals, i'm so outdated.
Merry ChristmasI would like to wish all my Christian friends a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.
I'm Here To StayHere's a few things to say here:
1- I just bought myself a subscription
2- I haven't been updating my Gallery and Journal (aka. no life signs!)
3- I haven't been in touch with my favorite deviants
4- Yes, i've been a Tumblr resident but deviantArt is also my home
5- I just fixed my Messages dash, so I can catch up with all the stuff you guys submit
And today is Qatar's National Day!
It's been a while, deviantart! I missed you so much.
Here's today's adventure:
I wasn't feeling hot this morning, so I decided not to go to work. But then realizing that there's a giant lizard in my room, I won't be able to get some work done, therefore I went to work, LATE!
When I got there, they told me that there's a problem with the internet, and that it might take a while. I kept working on indesign until my boss came in and told us to go home. He said that they're not even sure if it's gonna be solved by tomorrow.
I come home, Dad kills the lizard. I spend the whole day cleaning my room.
Now, I'm super exhausted!
I thought I'll upload some of the things I've worked on over the months I've been away from deviantart and Tumbling 24/7!
Good to be here
An UpdateHello deviantArt,
It's been ages since my last journal update, and I've missed it. I haven't been as active ever since I joined Tumblr. Tumblr is an amazing community, and you know it coz you have a blog there! However, this here is also my home and I will always be forever grateful and loyal to this community. I shall never leave this inspiring place. And I'm here to stay.
I love you deviantArt,
I have just learned that tomorrow is the first day of our holy month, Ramadan. So, Ramadan Kareem, everyone!
This would be the first time in my life to be unemployed, no school, no uni during ramadan. I still have my freelance work, but it's not the same.
And it would be the first time in four years that I get to participate in it, mentally, spiritually and religiously. Uni days were brutal and hectic, I didn't get any time to feel Ramadan.
As for this year, I deactivated my Facebook account temporarily, and I'm thinking of cutting back on my online presence. However, I'll be posting weekly journals on my reflections of this one special month.
Three weeks, I mean how bad could that be?
Have a great month, Universe.
Birthday EntryI remember last year's birthday, when my friends at uni brought me a chocolate cake, and a vente caramel frappucino from Starbucks with Happy Birthday written on it. And my painting professor, Brian Geary, played almost every available birthday song on Youtube for me. That was hilarious!
Then when I came home my family brought me a cake and some fireworks! And we called it a house party.
The year before that, Kipp Greene and the girls threw me a somewhat small party in class. I remember the black plastic forks that Kipp brought. I remember the spiderman balloons that Maryoom and the girls brought; which i had to drag with me till the afternoon physics class.
This year, today, I thought i'll be asking for that one thing i keep wishing for every year. But when I opened my gmail half an hour ago, and saw the amount of Facebook notifications I was blown away. I don't deserve such kindness people. Thank you sooo much, love you all! I'll do my best not to let
Post-Graduation MiserySeriously, I'm so miserable working on this project for the Olympic Committee; not having fun at all.
The problem is that it's too late to quit, and the project is almost done. Give or take 20 days from today.
I would rather be working on a full time job or just staying home, drawing, painting, listening to music and read.
I feel like a little child waiting to be cheered up.

How to get Popular as an Artist (EDIT)EDIT: Sooooo, this journal definitely proved my thoughts and point. Congratulations to myself, this is ironically my most popular journal on my DA.
NOW! I want to clear something first as many people seem to be mistaking and sort of bashing in the comments. People who do this type of content are not bad nor should be shamed. That is, if you really enjoy doing this type of content, there is nothing wrong drawing your favorite characters, wolves, cats, sexual content, tutorials, ect. (minus the drama... like seriously, this world needs less of that). I'm just a WEEE BIT tired of seeing young people and people that do art go straight into doing this because they get more noticed or this is the only way to get anywhere. They complain or abandon their passion/love that isn't 'oh so popular' (because it doesn't have advertisements/a pre-built fanbase, or a giant movie/tv show/game behind it) and move into something else that is trending just so they can be noticed. I know you want feedback.
I’ve realized over the years that I can’t draw everything myself, and I’ve damaged my hands by trying to draw all of my comics on my own. My followers are always asking when the next chapter of Fisheye Placebo or Knite is coming out, and it always pains me to say not yet. I can’t draw for more than a few hours a day now before the pain sets in.
I’m still determined to finish the comics I started, but I know I’m going to need help. I’ve been dabbling in 3D backgrounds for Fisheye Placebo, but I still had to build them myself, which is very time consuming and damaging to my hands in different ways.
I’ve been thinking a lot and I want to move my comic creating techniques to the next level and incorporate both 3D characters and 3D backgrounds. I’m not the most skilled when it comes to 3D programs, and I don’t have the time or health to create all the models myself, so I am looking

Updates as of October2009: Missing Halloween's story was created. Discontinued.
2010: Attempted to rework in 3D. Failed. Discontinued.

For the past month, me and Negyek were hard at work, day and night, to finish Missing Halloween. Later on, Procrastacat and VenBright were hired to give various voices for the ending scene. All of these are, of course, paid jobs, thanks to my Patreon supporters.
By November 29, the animation is officially done. All 8+ minutes of it.

The 'FNAF Sister Location' Anti-Hate RantOK, so everyone should have seen Scott's new teaser by now.
I was not going to write about this originally (so forgive me for rushing this journal), since I figured that literally everyone knows about the news by now, but the way people are announcing it and reacting to it disturbs me. I thought we were better than this, but I guess not.
Literally everywhere I go today, everyone I've seen is spamming memes like and saying that Scott is milking the series and beating a dead horse. Even people who have "left" the FNAF fandom and have decided to pop back in just to put in their discouraging, even hating, opinions. It's so bad, that I feel people are hating JUST because it has become cool to hate, as some kind of herd mentality.
Well guess what? It doesn't matter what anyone thinks! Scott is clearly going to do what Scott is going to do! The amount of hate th
