Random Favourites

My faves are organized into collections by fandom, and then I have a lot of fandom stuff (and random stuff) piled into a Miscellaneous folder because I'm too lazy to make categories for every single fandom I like. :hmm: There are simply too many. I also have a folder for my fave artists here on dA, which features their non-fandom related work. Fandoms/categories of art you will find among my faves:

Star Trek :: Sonic the Hedgehog :: Disney :: Sherlock Holmes :: Batman :: The A-Team :: Quantum Leap :: Wicked :: Tomb Raider :: Digimon :: Star Wars :: Indiana Jones :: WordGirl :: Phantom of the Opera :: Pokemon :: Moulin Rouge :: Spider-Man :: Beast Wars :: StarCraft :: Kirby :: One Piece :: Legend of Zelda :: Sailor Moon :: Non-Disney Cartoons :: Favorite Artists :: Fashion :: Photography :: Christian :: Stamps :: Emoticons :: Journals :: Miscellanea

The background is very successful; the clouds look very realistic, but not so much so that they clash with the TLK style. They balance ...

hello to the advancement in my life

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 15, 2013, 9:35 PM
so...hello deviantART. :)  it's been a long time.  and a very busy time.  i'm still not here, as anyone who still watches me knows...  but i have mostly legitimate reasons for that.  so here is an update about what i've been up to in the past seven plus months.

i had a fantastic semester of student teaching with an amazing mentor teacher, and i discovered one of the most amazing educational programs out there, "education through music" (ETM) which is taught by the richards institute of education and research.  anyone who is a teacher, wants to be a teacher, is a parent, or takes care of children should check it out.  it's not exactly a music is the vehicle used to teach the whole child.  the program is based on the neurological development of children and quite honestly, i've never seen anything create more emotionally stable, socially mature, and overall thoughtful and intelligent children than this program.  check it out at

with my student teaching completed, i now have a single subject teaching credential in music. :)  and what's more than that...i have a job!!!  i was offered an 80% of full time position teaching grades 1 through 5, classroom music.  i'll get to combine ETM with the district's curriculum, so i feel quite confident going into the position.  the job ends in january (i'm a long-term substitute for a woman on maternity leave) and as a sub i get a different salary than a regularly contracted teacher, but...honestly that doesn't really matter to me.  i have a job! :D  in a way it's daunting to be striking out on my own, but i'm extremely excited about it.  i feel ready to take on my future, make my mistakes and learn from them, and show kids the beauty of music and more importantly, how special they all are.

in dA news...gah!  too many messages, too much in my inbox... i'm unwatching groups right and left, but i'm still not ready to even try to look at stuff.  i've been too busy.  i spent the summer break teaching at two separate music camps, i attended a conference for educators to study the ETM philosophy more (which was fantastic!) and i counseled at my church's youth camp yet again.  and i've also been playing drums and singing for the church's youth band, which i am stopping now that i will no longer have time due to my job.  but it was fun to get to play again after the tendonitis has kept me away for so long.  true it's not orchestral stuff like i love, but it's still percussion. :)  i also cleaned an elementary school's entire supply of band instruments, a very instructive activity.  however, i will never clean a saxophone again.  too many pieces and crevices and tarnish and...argh!  so long story short, i've had no time for dA...

.....except a little work on my cheetah group.  i love the group to death, but my goodness is it time consuming to run properly!  which leads to the sad news i have to report...

just last night, my computer stopped working.  the hard drive will not start at all.  this happened out of nowhere.  the computer was fine and suddenly, paf, it's dead.  i had no external hard drive back-up so my entire lifetime of work is trapped least, i hope it's still there.  if it's lost i'll be...very very sad. :(  all of my creative writings that are still that are nowhere recordings and compositions of my own creation that weren't anywhere else...  not to mention all of my schoolwork, my teaching portfolio, tons of random fun stuff from friends that isn't replaceable, and more...  i'll be taking the computer to a professional to find out why it's not working and if my data can be recovered.  prayers would be very much appreciated...

as this news relates to my cheetah group, all of my research on cheetah subspecies was on the computer.  thus...i'm going to have a hard time posting updates.  although it's my new job that is monopolizing my time.  it's an hour's drive away in no traffic, so i have no idea what it's going to be like when school starts next week.  probably an additional half hour...  and like with any job, there's tons of preliminary stuff...fingerprinting, mountains of paperwork...  so i've been busy with that all week.

the only artistic endeavors i have made lately are a few attempts at arranging music, including a song my brother wrote, and some sketching practice here and there.  i have ideas for art, but it's like...whatever part of my brain used to control my art desire and ability has died somehow. :(  but i'm determined to get it back!  maybe i'll upload the sketchdump i did while working a fireworks booth as a fundraiser back in july... (yet another part of my busy summer).

i guess that's all for this update...  i msis dA, and all of your lovely art.  i will be back sometime...someday... :aww:

About Me

Hello, I am bcbdrums. Professional musician, lover of art...

I'm a resident of the western USA, a Christian, and female.

My art is a hobby, and doesn't happen often. When I draw, it's usually just pencil drawings, but I'll sometimes do more involved projects. On the off-chance that anyone would ever want to commission me for anything, I'm open to that possibility.

My other hobbies include writing/reading fan fiction, and watching/posting videos on YouTube. My account is here and my Youtube account is here. :)

The way I spend most of my time on dA is browsing deviant galleries and mass-faving. I rarely comment, simply because I cannot think of something to say, or because I feel that my comments would be of no use to you. For example, what use would a photographer have for a comment from someone who knows nothing about photography like me? However, if you specifically ask me to comment on something, I will do so. And when I do comment, it's almost always a comment of substance. :aww:


Please donate points :points: for prizes for these groups:


:star: Right HERE on group owner KaizokuShojo's page! :star:

Would anyone notice if I actually became active on the site again? 

9 deviants said Yes please come back!!!
3 deviants said Yes.
1 deviant said No.
No deviants said Don't care.
No deviants said No stay away!!!
No deviants said Who are you?



:bulletpurple: Do not ask me for llamas. I'm content to receive them, but as of right now, I do not give any. I just don't see the point. But I may in the future.
:bulletpurple: Do not ask me for points. All of my points are donated to the groups I admin, as prizes.
:bulletpink: Thank you for understanding. :)


:bulletblue: If I fave your work regularly, don't feel obligated to thank me repeatedly. Once is enough. :D

Hi! I did a piece of artwork for the international cheetah day! I'd just like to know how to submit that to you! C:
wait until december 4th, and upload it then. :)  there will be a group folder opened on that day you can submit to.
Ziega Nov 3, 2013  Hobbyist
oh ^^; I already uploaded it! I'll just edit it that day. Thanks :D
KaizokuShojo Nov 1, 2013   Traditional Artist
Just a random pop-in to say: you know you can remove llamas from your page now, right?
did not know!  haven't looked at any of the updates.  i'll get to that hopefully soon.  thanks XD
KaizokuShojo Nov 2, 2013   Traditional Artist
I don't look at them anymore, either... Too tedious. XD  But I'm informing you now.  You get to pick which badges are displayed... I don't mind the devWEAR badge I have, but the llamas had to go.
mmm... if i have time sometime after december, i'll find out what's up with everything that's changed in the last year or so i've been away from the site XD  way too much if you ask me... and still the group glitches remain. :[
Thanks a lot for all the favs ! :3
