Out with the old and in with the new!Hello my Deerlings~
How was your week? Mine was stressful D': here's to hoping that I get a break soon! Or maybe some good news would be wonderful!
This is weird update, I've decided to stop at three designs for this month, and the only reason is that I've gone ahead and removed 7 listings from my store! I took a look at them and I didn't feel they were up to the standards of the rest of my work, also, they didn't gain much attention in the last 6 months! So it'll only be a few items next Friday!
If you were wondering, the items removed were:
-The Gameboy pendant;
-Dean's "god-finding" amulet;
-Reveal glass; and
-All of the Super
Christmas=yay! Christmas sale=YAY~!Hello my Deerlings~
I don't update my journal very often, but, that's only because I don't usually say much! Or say anything that is all too important! I'm sorry about it, but hey, if you want me to update more, feel free to say so!
Okay, I am very ahead of schedule for the December release of items (set to release on the 11th of December), so I've decided to give out my store coupon sale early this year :> if you enter WINTERVEIL2015 at checkout, you will receive 15% off any order over $20! This is open to everyone, so please share!
That's all for now~
Peace, Love and Rainbow Roads!

Second ever prop~ YAY!Hello my Deerlings~
So, here is the second ever prop that I have made I chose something that is both iconic and is really interesting to look at! So, I chose Medivh/Khadgar’s staff; [Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian].
Now, Medivh is iconic on his own, as is old-man Khadgar. But this staff was created from my admiration of the mysterious young-man Khadgar, he’s a boss mage, and he sort of reminds me of my dad.
Onto the write up, this one is lengthier than the first, but let’s start from the top! The raven topper is made from carved insulation foam (carved into the general bird shape), I then hand cut and individually glued 462 craft foam feathers to the main body, the face and feet/talons were sculpted from polymer clay for strength, I then carved a wood grain into the foam for extra texture; the raven is painted with acrylic paints, with extra details painted on (shadows and wood grain).
DeviantArtist questionnaireOkay, so I decided that I would do the questionnaire for DeviantArt's 15th birthday, it's only a few days late. But I've been working on it for a little bit, so I'm doing it because I feel like it gives you, my lovelies, a bit of my history~!
How long have you been on DeviantArt? 7 years on this account (plus a further two on a previous, now closed, account).
What does your username mean? My username is three parts, "Super" is often the answer that I give when I'm asked how I'm doing; "Sirius" I came up with when I was about 8 or 9 years old, it's a contradiction with my personality, I'm actually very shy, so I wanted to portray myself as being vibrant, as Sirius A is the brightest star in our solar system (after the sun of course); and finally "XIII", this came from a nickname as a kid :T "Jinx", this came from my being very unlucky and clumsy, I decided that instead of being "Jinx" I would start being "13" as that's considered an unlucky n

How was your week? I spent a lot of mine stressing about something that I shouldn't be stressing so much about! I had a job interview on Monday for an amazing graphic design/online co-ordination job that's also close to home :3 it's practically perfect~ and today I received a call from the owner to tell me that they would like me to fill the position!
Okay, so I'm currently having a giveaway on my Facebook page :> I will be having two quizzes to giveaway two prizes! The first quiz will be for a prize $40 and under (of the winners choosing from my store, and it can be found here)! The second quiz has not yet been posted, but it
First. Prop. EVER!Hello my Deerlings~
This is the first prop that I have ever made, I wanted to choose something fun with a simple design :> so I ended up choosing Poro Rider Sejuani's flail.
The handle is made with carved expanding foam, papier mâché, air dry clay, painted with automotive and acrylic paints, and a custom hand-wrap; the piece that holds the handle and Poro Snack together is a custom-cut and sewn leather strap, painted with dimensional paint, and has a snap for easy dismantling; and I wanted something soft for the Poro snack, so it is hand-stitched and made with anti-pill fleece, stuffed with hypo-allergenic stuffing, and finally painted with dimensional paint.
The total length of the piece is 165cm long (64.96 inches) from end to end. The handle is 45cm long (17.71 inches) from end to end; the leather strap is 87cm long (34.25 inches) from handle to Poro Snack (whilst holding both pieces together); and finally, the Poro Snack i
People who truly mean a lot are rare.Today I return from the best weekend away that I've had in a log time. I've never had to "hurt" my friends and family, but playing archery tag with some of the most wonderful people that I've ever known was so much fun and means so much to me.
These people are some of the best in the world, and I'm glad to know them and have them in my life. We hugged, sang together, bickered and made up, danced like idiots, drank together, ate together, and shared an amazing weekend away together.
I consider these people as part of my family, a second family I believe would be a better title; and this will be an experience and a weekend that I'll never soon forget. Thank you all, you lovely people.

Please Listen.I just got an email from a concerned parent. Her daughter has an account on DA, and apparently she copies and traces my drawings. I looked on her profile and confirmed that, yes, she did trace and gave minimal (sometimes no) credit. The reason her mother messaged me was because a few people were apparently sending her harsh messages asking her to give credit. She even got a few death threats.
Listen...I'm going to say this all again because I guess it needs reiterating: When it comes to my art, I do not mind young artists copying or tracing my drawings in hopes of developing their skills, or because they are still learning the way of things. If you see someone posting a traced or heavily referenced drawing that does not mention the original picture, please DO NOT immediately jump to aggression. If something like this (art theft/style theft) really gets on your nerves, then I understand why you might be angry upon seeing it, but you must find the maturity to take a breath, and

The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.
Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:
1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.
2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
