ATalkHappy Easter everyone! I feel like... I just want to talk today. Because I think there's things I've learned and feel and think that sometimes I just want to say.ATalk3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let's start with stories.
What I find great about any form of storytelling is how honest it is. There is no other form of shared knowledge that can teach us how to live our lives better. None. That being said, we see stories in everything. We look at a tree with a fence grown into it, and think of when the fence must have been built, who may have built it, etc. We see a couple arguing on the street and ponder as to what could have gotten them to this point. We hear a snapping twig in the woods, and plan our escape route from whatever magnificent beast lurks in the brush! As human beings, we LOVE stories. But why?
We love stories because they teach us how to live. Think about any good movie, book, or other story. It should have moved you in some way. Some stories teach us how to deal with the intense hardship

Worth reading.Wanna kill yourself? Imagine this.Worth reading.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You come home from school one day. You've had yet another horrible day. You're just ready to give up. So you go to your room, close the door, and take out that suicide note you've written and rewritten over and over and over You take out those razor blades, and cut for the very last time. You grab that bottle of pills and take them all. Laying down, holding the letter to your chest, you close your eyes for the very last time.
A few hours later, your little brother knocks on your door to come tell you dinners ready. You don't answer, so he walks in. All he sees is you laying on your bed, so he thinks you're asleep. He tells your mom this. Your mom goes to your room to wake you up. She notices something is odd. She grabs the paper in your hand and reads it. Sobbing, she tries to wake you up. She's screaming your name. Your brother, so confused, runs to go tell Dad that "Mommy is crying and sissy won't wake up."
Your dad runs to your room. He looks at yo

Art StylesThis is not some journal about personal woes. I just want to talk briefly about some attitudes towards realistic (and other) art styles that I've come across that... It just kinda seriously bothers me that people think that way about me and other people and themselves.Art Styles10 months ago in Personal More Like This
So here it is; Drawing realism does not equal elitism.
I don't draw realistically because I think it makes me better than other people and I don't know anyone else who does either. I draw realistically because I like drawing that way. Because I'm very particular about details and drawing little tiny details makes me ridiculously happy. It's just how I like to draw.
It doesn't make me better than you or anyone else.
I don't think any of you are below me because you draw anime/manga or cartoon styles. More power to you because I tend to struggle with it, honestly.
And if we all drew the exact same way, all our art would be the same and it would be boring as hell.

An artwork of your animal friend
By an animal friend, I mean your own pet, but it can also be your family pet, family dog for example, as well as some animal you're closely connected to and love very much, like that one special horse of your granddad's you made friends with and love to ride.
Does my animal friend have to be..uhm...alive?
No. I even encourage making an artwork of an animal you loved very much, but unfortunately is no longer with you, for whichever reason. Always wanted to draw your dog you spent so many wonderful years together? Now's a good time.

Being humanI like being a human. I think I would remain a Homo sapiens even if I could choose any animal to be... but there are a couple things I don't like about it.Being human1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I think what I hate most about our modern human life is the concept of time being chopped into blocks, like hours, days, weeks etc. Days do not really have names. It gives me claustrophobia to have that calender grid laid out, covering my past AND already covering my future! It is my own, pristine untrammeled future! Keep that stupid concept of time off of it!
No way to escape it.
AND my ticking clock is sitting here, chomping up time in little bites like- like PAC MAN ... argh!
That, and I wish we had tails.
What do you NOT like about living life as a human?
Yes, of course , there's the problem that humans seem to be genetically wired to hate and massacre each other for no good reason, but I'm talking about more mundane things about physically or mentally living your life

A nice, scary story.Once upon a time, there came a great Beginning.A nice, scary story.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This Beginning was lacking in optimism, and said, "One day, there will be a great End."
The Beginning then vanished, for it was now a moment of the past, and the next moment had arrived.
In then next moment, a young broom maker had an idea that was going to change everything. His idea was so simple, but couldn't be expressed through language, so he did a little sweeping dance on top of a small asteroid to convey what he meant, but, alas, no one was watching.
This did not upset him in the slightest, for very soon, as he danced, he realised that he, the young broom maker, was the only living thing in existence. What a stroke of luck! This meant that his idea would be even better.
In the morning, after he had worn away the asteroid with his sweeping dance motions, he popped down to his local guatemalan chutney supplier and ordered everything he could possibly think of. He then nipped down to the bank, but not before tinkling down to see his

Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be another “ism” on the art world horizon, what with the growing accessibility of all
art technique and technology rendering all the “schools of art” equally available and doable and therefore making impossible the dominance
or even existence of any current art “movement” … comes “suggestivism,” the “ism” best summing up what art is in our lives today, defined
more by what it is not, rather than what it is.

Wolpy's endI have decided..... Wolpy's tales will end..... and all of you will learn the truth of his life......Wolpy's end2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Wolpy held onto Hunter as tightly as he could, tears rolled down his eyes as the dark void tried to pull her in.
"I am not letting you go! It isn't taking my mate!"
He cries and holds her tightly, she licks his cheek,
"No... Wolpy... it's my time to leave"
He looks shocked,
She looks sad, her ears fold back
"I love you, but my time here is over..."
"No.... please no..."
She kisses him one last time and lets go, she is dragged into darkness, the violent winds stop as it now has what it wants. Wolpy stares into the dark abyss, he is speechless and heartbroken. Guardian and the pups come rushing in.
"Where is she?!"
Wolpy has tears rolling down his eyes
"Gone......... she let go......."
"Everyone..... has to go sometime........"
Wolpy cries, the love of his life and soulmate sacrificed herself, he covers his eyes. A white pup goes to him

I love it more than any other song on the face of this earth.
And here it is embedded in my journal.
So long, 2011.2011 was quite the year of extremes.... On the negative side of things, I had my dreams crushed, lost my faith in myself again, lost my mother, and started letting people step all over me (albeit in ways they probably didn't think hurt me as much as they did...). On the positive side of things, I started finally getting mature about what I need to do artwise, rallied (for lack of a better term) an intensely amazing small group of 2-3 friends (and one more-than-friend ) which I actually opened myself up to (not all the way, but more than I ever have before), and started feeling better about myself again by contacting people already in the art industry who told me to keep going (which is good considering all the times I considered just giving it up this year.... still am, admittedly).So long, 2011.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
