You don't become a good artist. You already are.
One question I hear a lot is "Why did you watch me?! You are much better than I am!" and now I'd like to give you an answer.
Was it an accident?
Many people ask that did I watch them by accident or something. Was it an accident? No.
Sometimes I'm told that I'm not supposed to be watching certain people because "my art is much better than theirs". To be honest, hearing that makes me feel sad.
I am not watching people only for the art. That's only one of many reasons.
Okay, but why?
"You are much better than I am!"
Please, don't say that. For yourself.
I follow lots of people who have only a little experience. Maybe you are one of them. But it doesn't mean that "I am better than you". The way you draw your works and how you can make them look "badass" doesn't make you a good artist.
First of all, people shouldn't compare their art to others. This world is full of a

Autumn Design Contest (Open!)

AHHHHH I'M SO EXCITED I haven't hosted a contest in a super long time but I really enjoy doing them, so I hope this goes well and everybody has fun! I always love seeing all the different entries people come up with and design contests are my favorite because it shows how even when everyone works from the same prompt, our ideas are totally different and there's so many ways to execute them!! It's the most inspiring and exciting to me.. I hope everyone is excited too ahhh, I tried to set it up so that even if you don't win you enjoy entering and still get something out of it! Quite frankly I just want to see more autumn designs going around because they make me really excited and inspired, just seeing more art alone.. would make me so happy... wiggles
Please read the journal in full before entering! I'm running it a little differently from most design contests, and I don't want to cause any confusion or misunderstandings! If you have any questions, feel free to

Verrelets/Glassdrops (Closed Species) Info Sheet
*Verrelets are a closed species, which means you cannot make one of your own without my prior permission! I do not claim the separate ideas/features for this species, but please respect my decision in making this, as a whole, a closed species!*

Physique and Appearance
Verrelets, occasionally called Glassdrops, are tiny creatures standing a few inches tall. They have glass-like features which commonly appear on their ears and/or tail, and a glass heart inside them. They are very, very fragile as their glass pieces easily break when dropped or handled roughly. This is why they live in glass bottles/jars/containers that cushion them with soft things placed inside (e.g.: cotton and cloth). They also usually have a particular endearing scent. Some smell like vanilla, others mint, etc..
Rarity Index
Verrelets' features come in many forms. Some of them have colored glass pieces while some have items inside their glass. However, their rarity s

'On The Other Side' by Bats and Jess n.2

Hello and welcome to the second issue of "On the other side." With Bats and Jess
jesseboy000 and I "came up with the idea to create a gallery folder within Progressive-Street
that showcases some of our personal favorites that are street photos a little off-kilter from the usual.
As you can see in our header image we give a brief wording of what we look for in these images we choose to add.
Of the images we choose, we wanted to share our thoughts of why and how they stand out,
why they are a little unique to the more traditional street captures. Why we like them a lot!

very important and i want you to appreciate this
Please do not note me unless you have got something REALLY important to tell me that CAN'T be discussed publicly / or only concerns me and you
I don't like notes and especially not the ones which you could've easily sent to me as a reply to the comment on my page
Like for example
"Hi, I really like your art"
I know some of you prefer to use notes instead of comments
But please consider that I personally almost never talk through notes (unless I tell you to send me one)
I would really appreciate it if you understood my point of view on notes
I know all of this sounds really weird
But I mean, everyone is different right?
Thank you for understanding

Vigo's Workshop - Bagbean plush commissions! OPEN


Welcome to the Vigo's Workshop! My name is Vigo I bet you didn't see that coming! and I do all sorts of creative stuff here! Oh, don't be so shy. I do not bite... often~ *ghem* jokes aside, we have a lot to talk about!




So you're new here, right? Don't worry, I'll guide you through all steps! First you must read the rules!
  In order to get a slot, you must be a bagbean owner! Gifts are allowed only if owner of a bean can confirm that they know about commission.
 Please, keep in mind that hand crafts are time-consuming! I'm an extremely slow worker and rather a shy person (unlike Vigo, he's a sociable dork, better talk to him), so I'll ask for details at the very beginning and

I am so sorry.
If you read the title, then you ask why.
Well, there is something about me, that has been making me very unconfortable.
My age.
I understand if you can't forgive me
I understand if you hate me.
But here is the truth: I am 14.
Yes.
Thats it.
You can hate me if you want.
I was such an idiot. 
I dunno why I didn't told it in the first place.
Because I was too stupid for that.
I just wanted to look "cool" even if I am not that.
I don't know how you would react, but you really hate me for what I did, then I dont care.
I hate myself now.
Again, i was such an idiot.
You can call me out for that, I don't care. I learn about my mistakes.
Even when its hard.
I am sorry everyone for my lie.
I just don't want people to get me wrong..
But I am just proud for being the age that I am actually are.
I wish I really were 17.
Sorry everyone..
I am ready for the hate. I don't care anymore.
I just want to draw stuff and improve. :')
At least I have friends that I can trust

Caregiver/Little Community Awareness Week
Some of us in the Caregiver/Little community are starting a means of communicating with each other! We are trying to get an Awareness Week up and running! This is to help those in our community silently, and safely, show who we are to other Caregivers and Littles! 
Here is How: 
Starting September 26, 2016 those who wish to participate is to wear a piece of ribbon on their left wrist for the whole last week of September. We want to make this a monthly thing! So the last week of each month will be the time to wear your ribbon to signal other members of the community which role you are and that you are open to friendship! Each role has a designed color and needs to have the first letter of their role written clearly on the ribbon itself. 
Ribbon Colors: 
Daddies - Blue (with a letter D written on it) 
Mommies - Purple (with a letter M written on it) 
Boy Littles - Green (with a letter L written on it) 
Girl Littles - Pink (with a letter L written on it)
