A Year in Review ...Sorry for being gone for those friends that may have noticed my absence. Was packing and moving, have now settled into the new place for the new year. Here is hoping to not have to move again for many years.A Year in Review ...3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Now I would like to start by sharing a few things from this year -
My dear friend :iconkingabrit: and I joined together and started the coolest, most awesomest and incredible group on DA this year - :iconUntold-Possibilities: Where the main rule is no girls in the mist, fog, or other unknown reason for such girl looking dreamy and lost. And guess what? There are tons and tons of artists that create incredible wonderful things that do not focus on a single girl in the mist/forest/fog while it is a wonderful thing for so many that do it well, we like to see the possibilities of creation with out that little item. You can still have a female, you can still have fog or mist, but check out some of the cool things submitted this year:

:iconsteinboredplz: I don't know about any of you (I'll just stand on my soap box for a minute here) but when someone finds me cold hearted because I view my own stressors and my physical and mental responses to them as scientifically interesting, it kind of makes me feel sorry for them. Some people take their own troubles too seriously, and it ties them up in knots; me, I see them like they are. I know I have some irrational thought patterns about certain things, but even though I know they're irrational, I do them anyway, which I find fascinating about myself. Yes, some people think it's weird that I'm one of my own test subjects, but haven't you ever wanted to figure out the way your own psyche works so that you can estimate roughly what your reaction would be to certain things, should you
I can't teach you how to draw...I'm tired of getting this note.. I can't teach you how to draw, honestly no one can magically make you a good artist.I can't teach you how to draw...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The most I can do it, is red-line anatomy and give you critiques, On what I personally think is right. You might have a different view since art is what you make of it, we are all open to our own interpretation but no one is 100% right.
If you really want to become a good artist, you need passion to do so, a drive to become better, study hard and hone your skills, if you don't have that, then you can never become better.
No fancy tablet, program, or expensive equipment can make you a better artist, it can help it look a little nicer yes, but the skills to make it, is all on your trail and error from experience.
IF you really want to learn how to draw, get inspired forget about fail, just enjoy it have fun with your art, Art shouldn't be work to you, it should be pure entertainment.
if your not enjoying it, maybe art isn't your t

The 3 Word Rule (Helpful Advice)Someone says your uglyThe 3 Word Rule (Helpful Advice)8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Someone says you suck
Someone says you'll never be as good
I don't care
Someone says your flat
Someone says your fat
Someone says go f*** yourself
I don't care
You didn't win first place
You can't meet your own standards
You can't be as good as others
I don't care
No, I'm not the one who doesn't care, it should be you!
Someone says something bad, ok.
When did they become important to you?
When are you taking advice from them?
Just think or say the three words:
I don't care
So you didn't win first place in that contest, or any place.
So? You did your best didn't you? Some people said they like it didn't they?
You think you don't look good to others.
What? Why do you care what other people think?
It's your life, your mind, yourself
Don't let other control you.
Just remember the three greatest words:
I don't care
There will be people who will hate you, there will be people who like you.
Just remember one thing, whenever those douches, dicks, whores, bitches, and typ
the kali yugaIn Hinduism, the Kali-Yuga is the last of the four yugas (ages) which together make up one cycle of creation. The Kali-Yuga, in which Hindus believe we are now living, is characterized by wickedness and disaster, and leads up to the destruction of this world in preparation for a new creation and a new cycle of yugas.the kali yuga11 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Vishnu Purana, one of the oldest sacred texts of India says about the Kali Yuga:
"The leaders who rule over the Earth will be violent and seize the goods of their subjects... Those with possessions will abandon agriculture and commerce and will live as servants, that is, following various possessions. The leaders, with the excuses of fiscal need, will rob and despoil their subjects and take away private property. Moral values and the rule of the law will lessen from day to day until the world will be completely perverted and agnosticism will gain the day among men."

I'm not going to list your name because I'm above that.
However, I would like to thank you for your relatively insightful note that I had the pleasure of receiving from you.
What was it again?
"u terrorist arab gtfo dA with ur shitty art and go bomb some oter webste"
There are a million things I could respond to that, but here's a few:
1) Yes. You're correct. I'm Arab. Congrats, not like that's not plastered everywhere on my page.
2) Terrorist = Arab? Hm. See I could respond to that, but your ignorance merely speaks for itself here.
3) I wasn't aware that by me posting my art up on dA that I was...er...'bombing' the...what was it? Right, 'webste'.
4) Somebody needs a dictionary. And a thesaurus. And 200 copies of spellcheck.
5) Talking about the english language in general, it's funny how the so called 'terrorist arab' speaks better english than you, mm?
Thank you, once more, for taking time out of your day to grace

Why You Guys Shouldn't Underprice Your Arthttps://31.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lx4nszHwv41r4uxcfo1_1280.jpgWhy You Guys Shouldn't Underprice Your Art2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I see this appear over and over again and thought I should share.
This is why most of my painted art is $100.00 +
And I've done commissions for $500.00 which most people here would consider ridiculous.
But it's actually a REALLY good deal.
Specially since it was a commercial type illustration.
I aim on working my way up to industry standard by next year when I get Co-Op.
I'm not talented enough yet But one day. When I'm done all my schooling.
See guys, if you are charging under 100 points you can easily quadruple your price, maybe moreee.
DONT UNDERCHARGE PLEASEEE
Thats what's killing dA's market :c
