SHE TOLD ME MANY SECRETS ABOUT THE LIFE and MORE IMPORTANT THEN THAT,
SHE TOLD ME ABOUT LOVE...
SHE SAID, THE MEANING OF LOVE IS "LONELINESS",
 LIKE EVERY SELFISH FEELING, IT FORCES US TO BE ALONE
...
'CAUSE NO HUMAN CAN HANDLE TO RACE WITH THEIR OWN GHOST!
'CAUSE THE LOVERS IDEALIZE THEIR THOUGHTS and PROJECT THEIR SELFISHNESS TO THE LOVING OBJECT...

EVERY HUMAN IS LONELY AT HIS / HER OWN LOVING ADVANTURE

JUST BECAUSE I AM NOT A MUSE, NEITHER A POET; I JUST TRIED TO READ HER A POEM OF Mr. Neil Mac Call... 


"Come down from the cliff-edge, love;
quit the dark-eyed desperation
and the bare-breasted heroics;
put simply, he's not worth it '
nor am I '
in fact, no man's love's worth dying for.

Put your harp to good use,
entrance a worthier lover,
school your giggling girls
and place your poems
where the Christians will not find them '
in remote sea caves
and the minds of young maidens."

Tobis Injury Day 5

Journal Entry: Sun Apr 20, 2014, 6:23 PM
*insert bad Australian accent*

The wild injured Tobi ate puree bananas from gerber bey bey fuuds.  

This muscle milk she's been drinking isn't very filling but has protein. Followed by water, this fills her up. 

The wild injured Tobi now sits on the couch waiting for the pain medication to work so she can eat soup. 

She knows this is a serious mattah but wanted to at least make someone laugh because the whole time you have been reading this in a bad Australian accent.


But if your actually Australian. 

It may have been good. 

Wild Tobi has school tomarrow, after that she sees the doctor. She is very excited to see the extent of her injury. 


Her final good bye for this journey the bruise on her knee looks like a Smiley face...

Dear, deviantart fellow artists,

How to deal with it? How to get things done and achieve all that you ever wanted? 

If only I had the right answer. 
Sometimes I feel that I have not enough time. But maybe I just should be more conscious about the time I waste and that I could spend more wisely. I guess. 



Distractions are everywhere. Wonderful photos, blog posts, tumblr, tv series, movies, social media sites - time flies away so fast when looking through them and by the end of the day there is always that question - have I done something meaningful today? These things can be useful and good as source of inspiration, wonderful to see and watch, but in small portions - to have the time for hard work and for leisure. 

Over the time I have tried many ways to be more productive:
Making lists - it helps a bit, setting the goals for certain day, week - just writing down what you need to do and putting the note in visible place.

Being organized - for a while I thought that I'm just messy and there is nothing I can do about it, but I tried to have some order in things that matter - I have my inspiration folders in proper order and I try to keep my workspace as clean as possible. It's not impossible, but yet - difficult. 

Not doing things in the last moment  - still working on this problem. 

Setting a timer - for better focus on one task. (I'm quite bad at multitasking) There is also a wonderful application - Focus booster - www.focusboosterapp.com/downlo… , that you can put on your desktop and track the time for better results. 

Blocking time consuming websites - for certain time - StayFocusd and Citrus  (chrome apps) - chrome.google.com/webstore/det…  chrome.google.com/webstore/det…

Listening to music, that helps to concentrate - favorite songs, soundtracks, coffee shop sounds - coffitivity.com/ and rain - www.rainymood.com/

Doing the things that you need to do - being persistent, just getting over lazyness and feeling of "not wanting to start"  and the magic things will happen. And you will succeed. 

These are some ways that have helped me and I hope this post is helpful for you too.
For me - I usually have no regrets for the time that I spend with my family or when I paint/draw, because those are the things that are the most meaningful for me. And that time is never wasted. 

So, how do you deal with procrastination? 

This wonderful tumblr blog - fuckyeahillustrativeart.tumblr… - about stunning and mesmerizing illustrations, for pose references and gesture sketching - www.quickposes.com/ and figuresfordrawing.tumblr.com/ , an amazing journal about Supernatural - Salt & Burn Magazine and there is also a video  where you can see my arms from 6:24 till 6:43 doing some textile stuff. 

 
P.S. I quite frequently post some sketches and artworks in my art tumblr - snowmarite.tumblr.com/. and I have a weekly Music Sunday post on aerismade.blogspot.com/  :) (Smile) 

Have a wonderful week! :) (Smile)

One has to believe in what one is doing, one has to commit oneself inwardly, in order to do painting. Once obsessed, one ultimately carries it to the point of believing that one might change human beings through painting. But if one lacks passionate commitment, there is nothing left to do. Then it is best to leave it alone. For basically painting is total idiocy."/ Gerhard Richter

Contest Winners

Sorry for taking so long before announcing the winners!

Ok, it was really difficult to choose but I finally did. There were around 400 submited entries! I decided to choose the characters I thought I would draw and use the most, since the point of the contest was of creating a creature/reptile character I would love,  so don't be disappointed or discouraged if you didn't win, I am very picky about my OCs ;w;

Thank you so much to everyone who entered <3
