This is a journal to warn people and make them aware of what happens when they push themselves

One year ago i got a condition called RSI
or 'Repetitive strain injury'.
and it has returned again.
You might have heard of it and thought, meh.
Maybe this is the first time you hear it, maybe you
are already cautious.
And maybe you already have it.
This RSI is a SERIOUS condition which takes months to years to heal,
And it is caused by repeating certain movements like, mouse movements,
drawing with a pencil, and of course a lot of things that don't apply for

ONLY IN DREAMS: Skyrim Stands Apart as a Modern Masterpiece in Gaming

Stop hating your art and yourselfSo this is something that I've been bottling up for a while and I want to address it. Now, before you harp on me, I am guilty of this from time to time as well. However I want to open up the floor to this conversation.Stop hating your art and yourself1 month ago in Personal More Like This
I try to stay kind and gentle in my conversations with people. However for this, forgive my blunt tone. I am giving people advice based on what worked for me and other professionals I've talked to. This advice is for ANYONE, but mostly visual mediums like drawing, paints, etc. Though if you stretch your mind a bit, it could apply to any medium.
Also I KNOW not everyone wants to be a pro. This is about being a pro. It's about bettering your art. I have people always asking me about getting better and improving, and this is my advice to you all.
A. Your art does NOT suck.
For the love of the planet, PLEASE stop saying this. Your art may not be at the same level as someone else, maybe your family member, your friends, classmates or id
My deviantART StoryHey guys! A lot of people have been doing the deviantART story thing to celebrate dA's 14 years here online and I figured, hey, why not?My deviantART Story1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
I'll try and keep this sort of brief so it wont be too boring :'D
I made my dA account waaaayyy back in the olden days of 2010 (It's been 4 years already???) and back then my username was Foxheart97. You guys may recognize the "Foxheart" name as the name of my main OC http://cobalt-flame.deviantart.com/art/Foxheart-Reference-2014-428562477 , and that is because back in the olden days of 2010 I was an unoriginal piece of crap that thought my lame username would be a cool name for an OC :'D I don't really have the heart to change Foxy's name now though, so long live Foxheart!
Fun fact: Foxheart started out as a black cat with orange stripes (kind of a warrior cat OC), but then I changed her to a regular fox with purple eyes, then I changed her to a purple kitsune with a heart on her cheek, then I di

I'm really interested in improving and I find one of the best ways to do that is to hear some good old fashioned criticism. Sometimes it's nice to have cold water splashed in your face because that's the only way to become self aware of an issue and fix it. Please tell me what I need to work on (aside from backgrounds, I know my backgrounds aren't worth a crap at the moment. But if you have any tips at drawing backgrounds that would be fantastic!) and what you like about my art.
I'd really like to reach the point in art where I can see where someone is willing to do art trades with a "higher level" artist and think "Oooh, that's me!" instead of "Eh, better not ask" :'D I'm not where I would like to be in art, but I'm a hell of a lot better than I used to be, so I'm just going to keep on trying my best to improve!
Also, it has recently come to my realization that I would really love

Good ideas: Storytelling, characteristics, charm, emotion and design. Not just making things look polished but also convey something more, something that brings it to life and speaks to pe

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Since Febraury 2nd, 2010 (so currently five years)
2. What does your username mean?
It's from the wonderful book "Eyes Like Stars: Theatre Illuminata, Act I" by Lisa Mantchev. Cobalt Flame was the name of the main character's hair dye and I just really loved how it sounded.
3. Describe yourself in three words.
Bad at Math,

silly, passionate, perfectionist :>

Don't get playedAlright, so there was a recent 'happening' in the dA forums concerning a commission offer made by someone with the starting price of $30. The piece they were asking for was supposedly a really highly detailed piece, large resolution, and basically something you'd spend (on the low end of the market) no less than $250.00 on.Don't get played2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, from here on out this may be purely opinion and because my participation in the industry has only been for about 10 years (as in being paid for my work) I may not be the best person to speak on this matter. However, I have to say something, if only to put my own opinions on the matter out there.
15 years ago I got my first commission. It was a full colour realism portrait for someone of their dog and I offered to do it for $5.00 using traditional media.
They took up the offer and it took me about a week of working on and off to finish their image. At the time I wasn't anywhere near being sure of my skills even though I'd been drawing comprehensively

Have any of you ever had a dream where you come across someone and while in the dream you're like "Oh yes, this is my great Aunt Clara that once tried to eat my pet lizard!" or "This is my friend, Tara, I made at school a few years ago before she graduated and moved away with her alcoholic mom", but once you wake up it's like "Who the hell is Clara, and isn't that Tara girl from the tv show True Blood?".
Or have any of you ever gone somewhere in a dream, like a house or store, or maybe even a theme park that you have several vivid memories of hearing about and/or visiting this certain place while in the dream, but once you wake up you realize the place isn't real and there is no way you can have memories of visiting or hearing about this place.... or is there?

-Very nice and fast spawn timers on enemies.
-However that particular Burning of the Scroll quest was irritating due to mass population. But it can be remedied by grouping up into a party and just mashing your mouse til it works. Perhaps a seperate phase to keep the sea of pandaren down.
-There's a issue with the Master pandaren. Once you're done talking to him you can't exactly just click on the screen to get his name bar off of your screen. You actually have to run really far away for it to go away.
-Scratch that. It's like this even for Pandaren players toons. And enemies.
- "Items of utmost importance" The line "They're really just living plants" Seems a little odd considering plants are already alive. This is similar to saying the breathing lungs or the thinking brain. Apologies for nitpicking on quest dialogue if

He was an artist you might not know.
But you’ve met his children…
It’s rare that a “new” iconic monster is born and becomes forever identifiable,—— no matter the variations, by generation after generation. So it was when George Romero created the ultimate “zombie” in his Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Zombie Apocalypse fans today may have never heard of George or seen the original “Night,” but the zombies they so love in fare like The Walking Dead owe their existence to Romero’s original vision.

By the beginning of 2014 I started this account and uploaded a doodle a day during a year. It was the most challenging thing I ever did and it helped me loads on improving my art.
I've seen a lot of mentions on my inbox about artists that are starting their own 365 Days challenge and I want to write this journal to share what I've learned through my experience and maybe encourage some of you to join this long term journey.
It's okay to start simple!
My first doodles were waaay more simple than the other ones. If I had to start the project again I would still do them simple. Of course, starting this challenge is very exciting but it's a dead end if you put a heavy load on yourself at the beginning!
Focus on knowing your pace first. How much time does it take you to finish your drawings?
