So I suppose this has been a long time coming.  What with massive monetary problems, and my own foolishness and idiocy, I've been slowed to an almost halt on any work, not that there was much to begin with.  In the past two weeks, with me getting evicted from my apartment, and now living in a shelter, I've had some time to think to myself, and wonder what I should be doing.  I suppose the most relevant item should come first.

I'mma just leave DA.  I've had a ton of fun guys, and I enjoyed every second of it, but the comradery and friends I've used to have on here has moved on.  I sort of languished on it for a while, but I have to put the facts out there, and the facts are that over the last seven years, people have grown up.  I've loved and lost, been betrayed and even done a bit of betraying myself, but I have no regrets.  The only thing I wish is that I could have more time.

THAT SAID

There are other reasons why I'm leaving.  First off, dunno if any of you have noticed, but :icontsitra360:'s account was banned a week or so back, including all alternate accounts.  I've been an advocate for DA's continued existence, but no longer.  There are many great artists out there, and T is one of them.  I've stood next to him proudly now for as long as he's been on this site, calling him one of my best friends.  And the fact that they banned him on some preposterous claim without searching further into it is not only a betrayal against him, but also a betrayal against us all.  DA you have lost a customer here.

There is one more reason too.  Because of recent events, I've had to turn my eyes inward on myself and figure out what is wrong with me, and why my life can't straighten itself out.  The answer is simple;  I'm a tough person to deal with.  I'm stubborn and prideful, and argumentative.  And when I'm passionate or angry, I'm just downright intimidating.  All of this without meaning to mind you.  And as such, I'm going through a "Corporate Rebranding" of myself, remaking myself into a better person.  The results have already started to show, as since moving into this shelter, I've gotten a job, and plan to move back out in the next 2 weeks sometime.  It will continue on, with mostly major changes, although some not necessary, until I reach my birthday next year.  It will not be easy, but in the end of this passage of character building, I'll be a better person, physically, mentally, and spiritually.  For those who are relgious, I could use your prayers, and for those who aren't, please keep me in your thoughts.

My your wings stay strong, and may the winds stay at your back,

Note to all my viewers and friends, due to monetary complications I will be online only intermittently, as my new residence won't have internet for some time.  I'll try to keep my sanity intact during said time...
I'm in really big trouble.  Like really big trouble.  I need a lot of cash in a very short amount of time.  To help facilitate getting hands on said cash, I'm opening up commissions.  Prices will range anywhere from 10$, which is just a basic character picture as such:
Whiteout Concept by Insane-Randomness
And go on into space.  Price increases per background and per character.  Additional tougher poses will increase the price by a small amount as well.  Price is determined between the commissioner and the artist, and payment will be required beyond the lineart stage.  I take paypal ONLY, none of this points nonsense.  If your interested, let me know via note.

If you don't have any cash, you can always help out by spreading the word, because I really need this cash soon.

Seriously, I do.  Everyone knows about minecraft, but theres a rival game, based on the minecraft code, which has been rocketing into the spotlight recently, wherein EVE online and minecraft had a bastard child, and named it Starmade.  You ever think the ships you can fly in most sci-fi games are ugly?  Got a great idea, but nowhere to put it?  Starmade is the place.

Let me put it to you this way.  Remember my old minecraft built leviathan?  If you've forgotten, here's the link: insane-randomness.deviantart.c…

If you've forgotten that ship was around 200 meters long, certainly not small by minecraft standards.  But it has been put to SHAME by this monster.  This ship is 2000 meters long, ten times bigger.  And it's still 1:9th the size of the real thing.

And let me tell you, thats big.  Unfortunately, there's not a personal computer in existence that could make the thing full scale.  It's block count so far is 3.5 MILLION.  And this is just the shell.  Starmade has the capacity to add shields and hardened hull, and the likes, essentially an infinitely customizable vessel.  Once I add an interior, I'm expecting to have at least more than 10 million blocks, probably more.

Simply put, I'm uploading this thing to attach an image to a forum post, but by thunder, this game is the reason I'm not online.

GReetings, IR!  Sorry if I haven't spoken to you in while. Anyhow, do you know what happened to our buddy, :icontchris360:?  Because for some reason, he closed that account for no specific reason, and I'd like to know why he did (I'll refuse any "just because" excuses).  If you don't know, that's quite perfectly fine.
