Yep, that's right!

The title says something along the ways of Yes, there are women/girls who are gamers - here we are!
And the article itself is basically about this whole debate on whether it's true or false that 48% of gamers worldwide are not men. Because even though there's been statistics showing numbers similar to this one, some people still find it hard to believe, or simply don't want to believe it. 

The whole gaming debate has been pissing me off lately, there's too much discrimination and sexism and stupid threats going on at the moment, and I felt I really needed to show where I stand, in this case by signing my name in that huge bunch of names (401, to be precise) that are written in the bottom of the article. I'm a gamer, and I'm a woman, no matter what anyone says, and that's that!

PS. Even got the honour of being included in one of the photos at the top. I'm in the third row in the middle column. Can't wait to see this in print tomorrow!

I've come to realize this as of late. When you submit a deviation here, you decide whether or not it should have a mature content tag. Deviantart has listed a lot of subjects that you need filters for: sexual, gore etc.

What puzzles me though, is the tag for "nudity". I read the FAQ about it, and I find the text pretty fuzzy and unclear. What does Deviantart classify as "nude art", as in, what parts of the body should be "covered" with clothes etc. if the deviation should not go under a mature content tag.

Can someone here help me out, please?
Just a quick update on what's going on, art wise. Right now I'm drawing an illustration for :iconkalinka-shadows:'s Zelda crossover fan fiction (I haven't forgotten about it, don't you worry!). After that, we'll see what I'll come up with. I found some sketches lying around at home, that I'd decided to save because I liked them so much at the moment. Maybe I will scan them and do some digital colouring in Photoshop (for once). Also have a small project in mind that goes under the lines of unsexualising oversexualised video game characters, proving that something doesn't have to look offensive to look good and attractive:) (I've been having this idea in mind to make my OWN version of Cia from Hyrule Warriors ever since I first saw her) More tips on characters whose design you think are over the top, may it be male or female or neither, let me know.

Sonya the steampunk imp by ITAFTRS
Sonya the steampunk imp
This is my entry for :icondettankarmen7:'s contest. The whole idea of designing a character for him plus the words steampunk and imp really got me into this. So here we go with a background story:

This old lady is Sonya. She's quite the old yet quite the wise (those two oftentimes go hand-in-hand) - and sometimes cranky - imp lady. Her knowledge revolves especially within the technical and mechanical field (hence the cog wheel on her hat and the stripe pattern on her dress). She's got a weakness though, and that be her long tail. Ah, that gruesome thing! So - just like the mythical mining wife from old Scandinavian folk lore - she tucks it in, and hides it at the back of her dress (hence the bump). And don't you dare make any remarks or comments about it, because then she'll give you a swap on the head with that umbrella of hers!

She decides to join up with the other rebels in the alliance because she's getting fed up with how Yusar and these other twerps rule the empire. Because Sonya is a lady of peace (well, despite the umbrella case stated above), who'd rather work her way through a conflict or problem using her mouth and brains than using muscle power or murder weapons. She wants to make this a safe world for her grand children and great grand children to grow up in, and thinks she can contribute to the rest of the group, by means of her big brain capacity and understanding of how mechanics and machines work. She's determined to give something good to this world before her age gives in and she passes over to the next.

That's it regarding that! Hope you like!

Ugh… been stuck with an extremely annoying and stubborn cold the past week or so. Runny nose, headache, aches in my ear. The lot. I thought it was sinusitis or something, but no, it wasn't, according to the doctor. And tomorrow is the start for the busiest week of the year at work. Yeah, great timing… Hopefully I'll be able to pull it through, by the help of pain killers, nasal spray and whatnot.
:/
