Hello, friends!
Gosh, it's been waaaay too long since I stopped by ye ol' DeviantArt. How is everyone doing?
I just finished up my sophomore year at college, and am on my way to my degree in Fine Arts! :D
Using this knowledge, I've decided to start up a new venture; A YouTube venture. I have two different channels dedicated to this experiment:

SmokeAndAsh (www.youtube.com/channel/UC4yl5…
This one is dedicated to any personal videos, like vlog stuff, and art projects that I might be working on or have finished. There's a few I plan to put up there in a short while that I hope you guys will enjoy if you happen to watch them. 

and

ThinkGaming (www.youtube.com/channel/UCmA4D…)
This channel is dedicated to investigating the potential of fine arts in the realm of video games. I checked a whole bunch of places on the internet and couldn't find anything that approached this topic honestly, so I decided to give it a go. I love art and the expression that comes with it, and I love video games and the outreach and community that is established with it. I think the two are perfect together, and I'll explain why in a future episode of ThinkGaming.

For now, these channels are still in the beginning stages, and I don't think they are at the best quality they could possibly be, in part because of my inexperience with YouTube and also because I'm still growing as a person.
But that's the whole point of this experiment!
There are so many people in the world - so many important people that deserve to be heard and acknowledged and learned from. I'm one person with only a finite amount of knowledge, and I would love to learn more about the people in the world around me. How do you feel about your surroundings? What do you wish you could see in video games? How do you feel about the elitist mentality currently making fine art seem unapproachable to the public? What's your favorite animal?
I want to know more about the world and the people that live in it, and I found out the best way to do that is to put myself out there and ask;
How are you?
Who are you?
Would you like to start a conversation?

So please, feel free to join and talk about whatever you'd like. I'm so excited to hear from each and every person that's interested. ^^

A New Hobby Approaches! by Katqueen2
A New Hobby Approaches!
Hey, everybody! I'll explain a little more in a journal entry, but I'll just throw this out there - This is my new YouTube channel, alongside SmokeAndAsh, where I want to investigate video games as a fine art, but I've only had it up a few weeks, so there isn't a lot of content quite yet. xD If anyone is interested, I'll have more information in a journal entry, but if you just want to see some videos:

Leelah, Rest in Power
I've been hearing about this story for, I'd say, the past week. And I think that everything from this young lady's misfortunes to the aftermath of everything has just been terrible. I've seen such hateful things said about the transgender community mixed in with the loving support from those who supported Leelah as well as those who were going through the same thing she did. 
How can people be so hateful towards other people they don't know? How can parents sit by and watch their child live their lives in misery until they just can't take it anymore? I would never pretend to understand the suffering anyone in the transgender community goes through, but my heart breaks for every horrible comment I know a person can and will probably read or hear, a comment that makes them feel like they don't matter, like they are hated by the world for reasons that are beyond their own control.
I wish I could let them all know that there are people that do care, that there are people that love them even if they have no idea who they are. People that would cry if they hurt themselves, people that don't want another person to suffer in this horrible way. Pain is such a universal concept, even if it's degrees vary greatly. So why would anyone else want to put another person through such a terrible amount of it that they would…
I'm going to share this link to this website I found recently. thequietplaceproject.com/theda…
I know I don't have a lot of people that follow my art, but if even a few people that do can spread that around, that could possibly help someone who is hurting inside a lot. It's incredibly cheesy to say this, but I honestly hate knowing that people can hurt inside so much that they feel like the only way to escape that pain is by ending their life. So many people face so many different forms of discrimination that is so unnecessary…
I'm sorry this is getting so long.
I did this for Leelah because she wanted what happened to her to shine a light on the awful things that happen to members of the transgendered community, and while I am a really tiny fish in the biggest of oceans, I still want to do a small part in that. I want people to know that there is always someone that cares about them and what they're going through, even if this person can't relate very well to their specific problems, this person and many others still want you to have someone to talk to, someone that you can feel connected to and be happy with. I want you to know you are loved, no matter what anyone says and no matter what terrible things may happen, no matter how bad you feel inside and no matter how much you feel like you don't belong.
There's always someone that loves you. As cheesy as it sounds, it's true.

Rest in Power, Leelah Alcorn.

I'm sorry... by Katqueen2

I'm so sorry...
Meulin...


Here's another Sadstuck I did a little while ago. I enjoy experimenting with the faces and expressions of Homestuck characters since they have very nondescript faces. I'm not happy with how her horns turned out.
:I 
They upset me.
But I'm pretty sure Hamsteak people know what moment this is - when Kurloz screamed and Meulin went deaf and all of those good time feelings.

There will be more once I get around to drawing it.

Yeah, I just wish I could remember to pop by more. I'm worried about ignoring my friends who have been there for me. I don't want you to think I don't care or anything, so I feel really bad that it takes me so long to get back to you guys. <=(
