I had a fear of ugly peopleI was chatting with my aunty and her gf the other day. They told me stories about the young baby Ry-Spirit. When Ry had no pubic hair, when Ry couldn't form a sentence together properly, when all Ry did all day was draw and play with toys... Actually you know what? Ry of today is pretty much the same so no changes there. But anyway, there was ONE thing that was different and caught me by surprise when they told me, they told me that baby Ry had a fear of ugly people. I was like seriously?

Above is a photo of me as a baby after I saw an ugly person. I was fascinated by this statement they claimed, so they told me there was a time when they took me out to meet their school friends, I got along with everyone of them, laughing and having fun with them, except for one person, I got scared and cried everytime I saw him. It was a mystery as to why I was like that to him... and they have concluded that it might be because he's ugly. And yeah I know its rude to define who's ugly and who's

1. How can I improve?
One of the most important things to know about improvement is that anatomy is only one of many things you can improve , so if you feel like you haven't improved just try to look at more than just the anatomy and you'll see that you probably improved in shading,colouring,perspective or lining.
I also see a lot of people complaining about not finding ways to study and improve certain things so here's a list of things you can do:
-Stay away from "how to draw..." books! Most of them are badly written and don't actually teach you anything.
- Use references!
-Be open to any kind of critique! Even if somebody just comments "This sucks" go ahead and ask them why and what you can change to make it look better. Or ask people why they like your art to see what your strong points are. And most importantly don't judge the critique by whom it's from.A lot of artist tend to make the mistake not to take any kind of critique from artists with less ex

I woke early and watched silently as the beautiful woman beside me slept peacefully.
Wait a cotton picking minute did I just think beautiful... NO.... but in reality I loved her as much as I wanted to deny it to myself, I loved that woman and I loved her daughter more than I had ever loved anyone except my mother.
With that thought i mentally cussed at myself and I started to think of what my brother would say,
"Well dahym little Darlina got himself a little girlfrien, she's a pretty one ain't she mind if I have a look at 'ere?"
"Fuck you, Merle you stay the hell away from her, I've taken enough of your shit, i ain't taking no more", I said to him.
He laughed darkly and sarcastically which caused me to inwardly shudder, but the thing that truly terrified me, were what he said next, "Ain't no one ever gonna love ya and care about yer piece a shit ass but me little brother, don't you forget tha!!!"
I woke with a start and looked over
A Rant about Abstract Art:Hey there people! Let's gab about abstract art.A Rant about Abstract Art:3 years ago in Personal More Like This
To start, I hate it. I both love it at the same time. That's the nature of that art. Abstract art is meant to evoke an emotion out of you, in a minimalist way or in a complex one, that's the main goal of art in general, is to evoke emotion and responses. And I guess since i'm writing about it despite my loathing nature for the majority of it, I guess it's successful either way. So let me just blab out the main point of this.
Abstract art is often shat out by people who can't fully grasp the concept of their own work themselves. They rely on the general stupidity of the public to crap out an explanation, then they sit there and go: 'Yes. My large, purple square IS the embodiment of pure energy and the personification of the world.' Then people who see it and DON'T get a response, like the majority, rely on this sort of guilty clause to believe what some pompous dingbat shat out, and it continues on that way. WOW! I made a great picture! ON
Devious Journal EntryDevious Journal Entry3 years ago in Personal More Like This
EDIT: Thanks for the info on reindeer gender-antler technicalities. I did learn this in my teens, but I just kind of enjoy drawing the deer as white-tails like I did as a kid. I know it's incorrect, but the nostalgia factor is more fun for me. Merry Christmas fellow biology nerds!
When I was would little, my obsessive love for Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer would inspire me to draw Santa's eight reindeer to string together for Christmas decorations around the house. Even as a kid, I wanted some of the reindeer to be girls (it only seemed fair) and Dancer, Vixen and Cupid where always featured without antlers to show Santa didn't discriminate against the does!
So here's sweet-natured Cupid to wish you Happy Holidays! Have a wonderful day, everyone!

I want to hear your comments and suggestions on what, how, when this is done.

How beautiful do you have to be to be loved?A photographer like me who portrays beautiful women is sometimes accused of damaging people. Why? Because we raise the bar for everybody to an unhealthy level. We give wrong expectations of how you or a partner worthy of you are supposed to look. We use all the tricks to make the people in the pictures always look perfect and beautiful – how can a normal person keep up with this?How beautiful do you have to be to be loved?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, from my point of view the answer is simple, maybe too simple for you: you don't have to keep up with this. In a funny way I face the same problem as you, but from the other side: how can I keep up with you? You have not only your looks, you have your own unique way. You have your personality, your style. You have your way of walking and talking. You can make a real connection with somebody. You can touch them. You can make them feel your caress. You can make their heart pound.
How can I as a photographer keep up with this? I only have a stupid picture, how can I make someone's heart pound?

PE DD Week: Why did an icon get a DD?Why did an icon get a DD?PE DD Week: Why did an icon get a DD?2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Daily deviations tend to be a controversial topic within the community and whether or not a DD is worthy of the feature is, as such, often discussed.
As a CV for Icons & Handhelds I often find it interesting to read these discussions, since that way I can see what the community expects of the features, but the recent negativity on the Icons & Handhelds DDs is something I would like to address, which is why I'm thankful I'm given this opportunity during the Daily Deviation PE-week. I will try to explain why I think icons and handhelds are worthy of the feature and why they may be dismissed just a bit too quickly.
Let's begin at the beginning.
When deviantART first started, it was a site that mainly geared towards customization. Be it wallpapers or icons, if you take a look at some of the first DDs. So how come there'

TOS verbage shamelessly stolen from wolf-nymph because she said I could...
The average person has very little respect for artists. I'm not saying they don't respect art, because they love art. Even if they don't understand the art itself, people understand the cultural and personal need for Art. But outside of the entertainment and advertising industries you find very few people who see a need for artists. I'm not sure how many conversations I have had where people ask me what I went to school for then laughed at me because I have a major in art and a minor in art history.
"Wanted an easy A, huh?"
"Didn't want to take real classes?"
"How do you like being poor?"
These people hardly ever realize that they've just insulted me. The same people that claim "I wish I could draw/paint like that" look down on the person that did the piece. Apparently art is supposed to be a talent that you either ha
