An update from your old pal Savannah.Well, I apologize for my absence from dA over the past year.. but in all honesty, it has just lost its magic. Part of the reason why I feel this way is because it doesn't feel like a community to me anymore, it's just one big popularity contest.
I used to feel like I was at home when I logged on every day. I just don't feel that anymore.
It's bittersweet for me, because if it wasn't for dA, I'm not sure I would be in the same creative place that I am now.
dA was the first place that I felt comfortable with expressing my creative side on the internet. So I will always love it for that reason alone.
With all of that said and done, I'm not leaving dA, nor do I think I ever will.. I just felt that I should explain why I have not been around. Regardless, I am still creating and still posting my work (some of it here on dA when I remember to). If you wish to keep up with me though, I would suggest checking out my Flickr or my Facebook page.

Summer = more time for dA.Hello everyone.
I want to apologize for my lack of activity around here lately, I feel like I have lost touch with dA and everyone that I used to converse with around here.
The past couple of months have been on and off busy for me, with school, work, etc. But I am happy to say that I am now a college graduate (well from a two year school, next is a four year), and will have a lot more time this summer for getting back in touch with the website that really helped me to find my own style in photography (dA, of course).
I really want to focus more on utilizing my free time to expand my creativity this summer, so I can only hope that you will all be seeing some new work from me in the near future.
I do hope that you all have been doing well, and I truly miss chatting with each of you, so drop me a line if you wish .
If you haven't taken a peak at my website yet, it is savannahdaras.com
Underage Erotica?I recently received a note from a dA staff member concerning an image of mine.
It was temporarily removed due to a report that was filed on the image and was categorized as "Underage Eroitca".
Well, this image in question is of a four year old boy that I babysit (who was three when the photograph was taken), in a bath filled with water and bubbles.
Considering it should probably be noted: the bubbles/water are completely covering any sort of genital area that some might consider "erotica" if they were to see it, and he is in no way posing in a sexual manner.
Yes, I realize that genitals do not need to be shown for something to be considered erotic, but that is besides the point.
Now, I am kind of disgusted that someone would take personal time out of their day to report this image as inappropriate, was it really necessary?
I have seen some rather "inappropriate" images here on dA, ranging from women spreading their legs as far open as they possibly can, to full grown men doing obscene
A short break..I will be taking a short break from all of the websites that I frequent, such as Flickr, dA, Facebook, etc..
This break is happening because I have a lot of school work to be done within the next two/three weeks, and I have procrastinated doing it for far too long..
A lot of my procrastination is induced by spending countless hours on these websites (not that I don't love spending hours on here).
So, I have removed all of my short cuts from my tool bar, and changed my home page to a page that I created with my list of work to be done.
I am not allowing myself to go on any website that is not related to the school work that I will be doing, until I am completely finished.
It's actually quite difficult, because I have constant urges to just go to them by habit.
My last day of school is May 6th, so I will see all of you then (or possibly before, if all of my work is completed sooner).
PS: Give me llamas, and I will return the favor once I return .
Give me llamas =D!Like my llama skin ;D?
Also, give me a llama badge, pleaseeeee? <33
I want to see how many I can get - I want the super llama!
So, did anyone play any hilarious pranks? I did not take the time to think of any, so I just enjoyed the beautiful weather that we had today.. Which was so nice because it has literally been raining for the past four days..
Also, today is my kitty Scamper's 18th birthday
I bought him a new scratching pad and some treats. He was so excited; he loves them so much. Seeing him like that always makes me happy. Ah, also, I am so excited for Spring to arrive.
I apologize for being less active lately, I have just been swamped with school, work, and everything else.. The end of the semester is nearing, so I have a lot of work to do. But I shall be more active soon .
And don't worry, I will announce the winners of my contest, as well!
Take care all.

Find Your Homestuck Troll Blood Color!Yeah so here is how it works! You need to figure out your sun sign, and your moon sign. There is a calculator similar to this one out there, but it doesn't take in account jade bloods or mutants. This also doesn't require rounding. Hussie has already stated that the only troll blood colors that exist are the ones we have seen in the comic + lime. I also had to take in account that the jade blood color is rare, but the odds of getting jade with the distribution unadjusted are extremely high, so I figured out a way to make it work so it makes sense. I also took in account that fuchsia blood is extremely rare, and so is being mutant. The distribution that I am working with is a pyramid. I'll explain the breakdown at the end.
