Why does that sound like the title for a movie?
Anyways, time for an update, since it's been a while!
I recently I had a REALLY bad case of vertigo. If you don't know what vertigo is, or you've never heard of it, read this wiki entry on it: [link]
While the full force of the sickness only lasted a few days, the residual symptoms lingered for quite some time, and even now, weeks later, I occasionally get a momentary dizziness or equilibrium shift if I move my head, turn or look down or up too sharply. When the suffering was at it's worst, I was also experiencing stiffness of the neck and chest pains. It was bad enough that I was moments away from considering a trip to the ER, but myself and others continued to pray on it, and the Good Lord almost instantaneously healed me, and the main symptoms left suddenly that evening (thanks be to God!), and I was able to hold down food from then on (if you get what I mean )
The sickness did slow down my progress on my latest work, but I also fell behind in commenting to deviations, which is more my fault than the sickness. So, I'm sorry to those who have been waiting for me to respond or perhaps were caused to think that maybe I overlooked them, or ignored them. I'll be getting to your guys' deviations soon. I've seen the deviations and I've read your journals.
In the meanwhile, here is my latest work, in case you didn't see it in your inbox:
I was able to complete and upload this deviation with what I THOUGHT would be about a half hour to spare before my subscription ran out. so I was THINKING I was pretty awesome for pulling through at the last minute...
BUT I still have an asterisk next to my username, so apparently it doesn't technically expire until later today, whatever time the sub was gifted to me. I wasn't going to take any chances with that, though. It was important to me to get it in before that so I could make sure I could use the large size feature option for the widget on my front page while I still could! I don't know if I'm going to do another big project like this again soon, so I wanted to be able to showcase something 'widget worthy' at least until the next big project.
After today, I'll be sub-less again.... I can't afford to BUY a sub right now, so maybe I'll look into doing some points commissions or a regular commission with a premium membership sub as payment. I also noticed that DA has now taken away the 3 month sub option! You now have to purchase either a 12 month sub or the "till hell freezes over" sub which is good for 7 years (note: hell will never freeze over, but the sub will).
If anyone is interested in commissioning me in exchange for a sub, or knows someone who might be, feel free to send me a note!
FINALLY...your journal song for the day!
A friend linked me to it last night, and it helped provide that extra pump when polishing off the final touches on my picture. If you like rock and roll with awesome guitar rifts and shredding, you'll want to listen to this, it's good (it does sound like it came from a Rocky movie, though)! I've never heard of these guys (and neither had my friend), but their name is Europe, and this is, "The Final Countdown!" How appropriate for my situation, huh?! LOL!
Take it easy,
