I haven't drank a drop of alcohol all vacation, despite it being free, and all the stress with mum being hospitalised, and it's now the last night... should I...?

Hi there folks', I'm Mike, but most folks know me as Midori, call me whatever!

YURI GOGGLES - ACTIVATE!

About me?

I'm just yer' regular guy... Pfft--- Couldn't type that with a straight face...

I'm nearly blind, completely in my right eye and severely in my left, but my sexy glasses are a big help! I'm on the Autistic Spectrum, Aspergers Syndrome to be precise, I'm also Dyspraxic, and being tested for Bipolar, and an insomniac. I think that's everything wrong with me.

On the bright side I'm actually pretty cheerful most of the time, I'm quite shy, especially so at first, but I'm always hopeful to make new friends, so if you want to spark up a conversation, or just simply comment on my artwork, please, feel free, I love the chance to interact with people, and will try my very best to respond as soon as possible!

Why am I here?
I once got told that I'd never be able to draw because of my eyes, so I said, Hey, you want a bet? And that's what brought me here to DeviantArt, my home at (and occasionally away from) home!

What do I like?
In case you couldn't tell I love Manga and Anime, Especially cute Yuri fluff! :heart:
I love tons of music, from J-pop to Rock to Heavy Metal, and I worship Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters almost religiously...
I also LOVE stand-up comedy, especially British stand-up, my favourite comedians are Russell Howard, Dara O'Briain, and John Bishop.
I have MAAAAANY FANDOMS. Anime/manga wise, there are far too many to list...
None anime/manga, my main fandoms are: Doctor Who, Star Wars (Classic trilogy and Expanded Universe), Mass Effect, and Dead Space... It's all Sci-fi, huh.

My goal?
My long term goal is to publish some Manga comics, and maybe start up a small production company! Hopefully in a few years time I'll be good enough! ^w^

Other useless info.
I occasionally do crazy stuff to raise money for charity, mainly Marie Curie Cancer Care
www.mariecurie.org.uk/
Here is a video of me skydiving to raise money for them: www.youtube.com/watch?v=rcXV7D…

I'm hopelessly androgynous...
I have a Glasses Fetish that borders on the unhealthy...

One song that always tugs at my heartstrings, and makes me weep like a schoolgirl is Supercell's Perfect Day...
www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBI01o…

My ultimate guilty pleasure is The Darkness' I Believe in a thing called Love.... Don't judge, awesome glam is awesome...
www.youtube.com/watch?v=sRYNYb…

My anime Hero is Vash the Stampede from Trigun.

Also, I'm actually a smuggler from Corellia, so, like... Don''t ever tell me the odds, we Corellians hate that.

I guess that's really it...? Anyway, thank you for visiting my page, I really appreciate it, feel free to say hi and leave feedback, really, don't be shy!

Peace and Love!
~Midori

P.S.! Webcam image was part of a Commission, it was drawn by the wonderful ram-jam, go show this awesome guy some love! :heart:

(Commishie = Commission.)

Hey folks! How's it going? 
I'm getting by, with the help of some amazing friends. :heart:
Times have been tough, Mum's Chemotherapy started a week ago, and the side-effects are really starting to hit her hard, she's really ill, and there's nothing I can do to help beyond pick up the slack around the house, besides that I can only watch as she fights... It's been really draining, but as I said, I've had help from some wonderful people, in the form of some wonderful artwork!

Yup, as a way to cheer myself up, I saved up some money and points to commission some artists who's work I adore, and I really want to share them with you! :heart: 

The characters featured are an original yuri couple:
Camellia (Pink Hair) and Nier (Purple Hair)
--------------------------------------------------
Firstly, if you're read my previous journal you'll know just how beautiful this artwork is, by the amazingly talented Cynical-Pancake! She was an absolute joy to commission, and kept me updated right the way through, the care and detail she put into my characters, as well as the warm, loving embrace just really warms my heart...  CM: My angel without wings by Cynical-Pancake
:iconcynical-pancake:
Her commission info can be found here: fav.me/d7u7z18
--------------------------------------------------

The next artist is someone who I've been watching for quite a while, the amazing maybelletea! Her peerless skills with watercolour, matched with her beautifully unique drawing style make her art and absolute joy to view, and when she opened up a sale I jumped at the chance to finally commission her, I HAD to have a watercolour, it's just to beautiful to pass up, and my goodness, look at how beautiful this is!

--------------------------------------------------

And finally, it was my absolute joy to commission ram-jam, who is not only an amazing artist and artistic idol, but also a very dear friend, his artwork is absolutely beautiful, and so full of passion, and from the instant I conceived the ideas for Camellia and Nier I knew I wanted to commission him... I'm so very grateful, because he went above and beyond, turning my commission for a simple single image into an animated gif, it really moved me that he'd put in that extra effort, and I can't thank him enough!

His commission info can be found here: www.deviantart.com/users/outgo…
--------------------------------------------------

Lastly, whilst not a commission, I'll include this anyway, as it was a late birthday gift by the wonderful AndyStarfish, as many of my seasoned watchers may know, we both started here on DA at near enough the same time, and we've been really good friends ever since, and since I'm such a girls-love fanboy she decided to draw me some boys-love, which I think was a great idea! It also means that come her birthday she can look forward to some lovely girls-love! ;P

All of these artists are fantastic individuals, with exceptional talent, and wonderful personalities, and I feel absolutely honoured to call them my friends, each one deserves your full support, please go check out their amazing galleries, and fall in love with their artwork as I have!

 CM: My angel without wings by Cynical-Pancake
Words cannot describe how beautiful this turned out, I am absolutely overjoyed, I'm actually lost for words, their poses, their expressions, the symbolism with the wings and feathers in the background, everything about this is so wonderful, so full of love! Even the composition, and the curved borders really accentuate the feeling of warmth and love! Also I really adore the Cel-shaded style, I adore it! 
Agh, I could talk and talk forever about this, I absolutely love it, it's really put a smile on my face when i needed one the most! 
Just, thank you, thank you so very much!

Hey folks! Midori here!

Something different this time.
I like to think of DeviantArt as a community for artists, one where artists are supported by their peers, I personally have had wonderful support through trying times, and I feel I should support my fellow artists too.

So today I'm bringing you a special journal dedicated to a wonderful artist known as Cynical-Pancake

She is very skilled, and her commissions are currently open! 

Emergency Commission Prices by Cynical-Pancake

Her art is absolutely stunning, and her prices are more than fair, I plan on commissioning her as soon as I have some money (just waiting on a cheque to clear), and you should give her your support too! 

Once more she is Cynical-Pancake
( :iconcynical-pancake: )
Go give her some love.
