My avatar/icon was created by me.|
.:Who I Am:.
Hey, everyone of DeviantArt! I'm Megg-Lavender! I have an actual name, but you can just call me any of these following nicknames:
Currently, I'm taking a break from college (since I'm saving up for its tuition cost), but I will return there again once I've saved up. Once I do return to college, though, I plan to major in business marketing or advertising, and I also plan to minor in theatre/acting. You see, I have this dream of becoming a voice actress someday, so that's why I want to minor in anything theatre/acting related. (I also plan to take some classes outside of college! ) I also feel that I have a deep connection with acting -- I just feel so involved with the character I play -- so that may be another reason why I want to purse voice acting in the future.
Although I've already chosen a possible career path, I still believe in the idea of exploring a possible career in life. I have a belief that nothing in life is set; you actually make it happen. So, if you find a job or career that you love, you will be more satisfied in life. (I wish you good luck in finding something that you love! ^^)
Now... As for my hobbies and interests, they're mostly shown on the other part of my profile. You can check that out, if you're interested! But, if you'd like to know what I mainly like to do, I enjoy writing and creating art. That's what most people do in DeviantArt, after all! xD
Now, here's more about me... That's what this bio section is usually for!
Alright! I'm a female adult who is friendly and caring overall. Though, sometimes, I can be a bit odd and hyper. But, when I'm upset or angry, I'm a totally different person. The main reason behind that is due my depression -- I've been diagnosed with this condition since middle school, a time when I was terribly bullied. But, I've gained a supportive group people since then (my family and friends), and I take medications to treat it. Thanks to them, I feel that I am doing much better in life, and I live each day with a positive outlook. So, if I ever feel angry toward you, it may have been because I was feeling down. But, if I have felt offended by something you've said about me as a person, I will surely confront you and we'll have a discussion to resolve the issue. But, people who disrespect me and my efforts will most likely get reported. It's best if we treat each other with respect.
With that said, if you currently +watch me, feel free to remove me from your +watchlist if you feel we won't get along from now on. However, if you're interested in +watching me, feel free! I really value relationships I have with people, so if you +watch me, I really appreciate it. And, of course, you don't have to +watch me if you don't want to. xD
Since I believe I have matured as a person, I will be more direct, honest, mature, and constructive from now on. I will strive to be my true self.
Lastly, equality is very important to me. Things like equal rights, homosexuality, and other similar topics are what I support. I believe in everyone being treated as a equal, and everyone's voice should be heard.
Thank you for taking the time to read my bio. I hope you learned something about me (I'm pretty sure you learned something new), and I hope you have a good day!
See you around!
Story AdoptsHello everyone! I was looking through the adoptions that seem to become quite popular on deviantart and I wondered if people really came up with stories for all those characters they buy. I figured that they didn't, and that they just sat in a folder with nothing to do. So I came up with the idea of "Story Adopts" where someone can adopt a back story or a story idea for their new character to use so its not just sitting around wasting space. I used to sell my back stories for other people's adopted pets on a site called, "wajas" but I recently stopped going on there due to work and life. So I thought I would give it a try on here.LuvlyMystery
So here is how it works:
1. You give me a picture to work with so I can envision a story for them.
2. Give me the personality of the character OR let me know to make up a personality for them.
3. Give an idea of the back story or main story that you think would fit the character OR tell me to make one on random

The most amazing free painting software ever O_OSeriously both SAI and Photoshop feel insignificant compared to this (In terms of painting and mixing ability) It would be a SIN if I didn't share this with you guys This is the most complex and realistic painting software I have ever come across.

Information on how to use it
I admit it takes a bit of getting used to, and there are MANY keyboard shortcuts. But personally I'm going to take the time to get used to this software.
He states in the video below that you cannot upload images, that has since then changed btw.
Vthese two don't like youtube videos lol, stealing their space. God I need to learn how to code...
Looking for Artists, Animators, and VAs!Hello, everyone! As most of you probably know, I’ve been aiming to create my own cartoon series for quite a while now. Back in 2008, :iconspiritjujuhari: and I came up with an idea for a cartoon called Cite and the 8 Ghosts. Since then, the project has stopped and started up again multiple times, due to being overwhelmed with work. I have no experience in animation, and it’s been rather difficult for me to gather a team together for one reason or another.MiharuWatanabe
I just recently had the idea to put the series on YouTube and tell the story in still frames, in a sort of “storybook” format. I put up a casting call on Behind The Voice Actors, and one auditioner who expressed a great amount of interest in the project directed me to Voice Acting Alliance, saying it might be a good place to find animators and anyone else willing to help. However, I know that there are many wonderfully talented people on Tumblr and DeviantART as well.
I put a lot of thought into thi
Become a better artistTo improve and become really good at art. Isn't that what all of us, artists, secretly wish for? That we, one day, become as good as the idols we've looked up to.DamaiMikaz
Well, we can't be all born with mad talent. But there are certainly ways to speed up the process for you! In the journal here, I listed some tips and tricks that helped me getting to the point where I am now. I thought I'd share them with you. And maybe you can add to the list. I'm always willing to learn.
Give up on being a mangaka -- or hold more realistic expectations
Admit it. Most of us here started drawing manga because we liked the style at a certain point. How awesome would it be to one day become a pro in that field. A real manga artist (or mangaka, like they say in Japan)! The truth is... becoming a mangaka isn't that easy. It it were, many more people would be one. First of all, mangaka's live in Japan. That's the only country with a manga industry big enough to actually ha
