the conversation with the anesthetist,
he said place your thumbs over your eyes

and no i can't feel my hands but i'm
not really bothered, i will sleep

wake, it might pack up its fish and

bloodless and pale,
with dirty hands
trying to wash it all

the blood in the

What *Is* Art Plagiarism? (READ THIS)Okay, due to some flaming I've received because I brought art plagiarism to the attention of an art plagiarist... I've realized that there is more than a good number of people who don't know what art plagiarism really is--so, I've written an informative journal for you all. It's broken down into several easy to understand sections.What *Is* Art Plagiarism? (READ THIS)5 years ago in Personal More Like This

Hopefully, if my journal's not enough to understand the meaning of art plagiarism, then the tutorial will be (or vice versa, maybe my journal will help you understand the tutorial more).
What Is Art Theft?
What Is Tracing?
What Is Art Paraphrasing?
Why Can't I Use Other People's Art as "Reference" to Make My Own Art?
How Can I Avoid Being Called on Art Plagiarism?

FREE HEADSHOTS! HUNDRED HEADS CHALLENGE~THE HUNDRED HEADS CHALLENGE!FREE HEADSHOTS! HUNDRED HEADS CHALLENGE~2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
So this is basically an idea for a very interesting project I came up with this morning, drawing the heads of 100 fellow deviants in a multitude of different styles, ranging from cartoon, to manga, to realistic!
I love drawing stuff in different styles, so why not draw deviants, to practise these different styles and to practise making drawings look like the person they're supposed to be?
I also believe in versatility, that an artist must learn different techniques and such to keep "fit" and healthy artistically, not to fall into a rut of drawing the same stuff over and over again, and not to fall into the dreaded, dreaded pit of ARTBLOCK
So, here are a few guidelines that one must observe if he/she wants me to draw them:

PE: Importance of AnatomyThe importance of anatomy.PE: Importance of Anatomy1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Understanding anatomy is crucial to many aspects of your art.
You'll notice that anatomy is essential for drawing. It becomes difficult to accurately draw a complex pose, or even a simple one, if you don't understand what's under all that skin or fur, or even bark. Knowing how everything fits together is important.
Once you notice where that certain muscle is, shading and form become much more accurate and more natural. Knowing why the nose and eyes fall where they do make it much easier to draw from memory, and nail that natural look you were going for.
Learning the anatomy of the subject you're going to draw is quite important, and will definitely help you on several levels.
It's also easier to drawing sequences of movement. One will know what connects to what, and how they move. What is possible, and what isn't. (Range of motion)
Drawing people and other animals can be intimidating. Once you have a solid foundation, it's much easier

You woke in the middle of the night, you had a horrible nightmare. Placing your gruby legs upon your bed, small yellow tears escaped from your big (E/C) eyes. Looking about the dark room, your toys looking like monsters. Seeing the scary shadows just made more tears fell, you managed to climb out of your bed. You left your room, you were now in the dark hallway. You didn't make a sound, therefore you were to scared to even say a word. Crawling down the hallway, you looked back and forth. Trying to find a certan room, you didn't notice that someone was behind you. The troll picked you up, causing you to sqeak in surprise. You wiggled your tiny legs, the yellow blooded tro;ll placed you in the palm of his hand. You turned to face him, it was your Uncle, Mituna. He patted your head, "What are you doing out of bed?" He turned around, with you in hand. You watched as you both started to head back towards your room, jumpin

flee, but there is no fire
escape, no guide to the
exit of my head, and they
consider digging a hole
there, i feel it, maybe a
crack just wide enough
to crawl through, drop a
rope through the back
of my neck and climb
down, prise open the
earth - a tremble turns
into an avalanche, and
a snowflake in the flurry
wonders am i the same as
all the rest? he coughs and
splutters and chokes on
it - i wake in the early
morning, heart lodged
in my throat, that red
bird in that chimney, he's
going to starve there and
i'll be spitting feathers;
i won't claw the inside
of my neck again for
nobody, i'm past that,
pick me up by the
scruff and drop me
wherever you're going -
but wait, when lightning
strikes a tree, well isn't
that love? and when the
rain pelts the ground,
well what about then?
when you miss the ache
of wounds as they're
healing, is that it? well
when your nose bleeds,
that's still love right?
cos i've got an entire
pack to get through -
and what a funny
thing it is
Tips to improve our artwork♣ Hard working - constantly practice even when we don't want to draw.Tips to improve our artwork2 years ago in Personal More Like This
♣ Learning from others artists - no matter who is it, from beginner to master, we can always learn something from them.
♣ Learning from audience - carefully consider comments from other people, their opinions are valuable.
♣ Accept our own weak points - though it is so hurtful, look for them - try improving them instead.
♣ Always be a beginner - there are many things beyond than we have ever realized. Let's open our mind and learn new stuff.
♣ Don't waste your time on choosing tools - choose the appropriate materials - what we like the most is the perfect one.
♣ Only taking a break but don't give up - there are numerous obstacles that await for us in this path - confront and fight them!
♣ Basics are the most important part- then we can adapt to anything we want.
♣ Believe in ourselves - self-esteem needs to be added to ingredient in our work.

Korra sat up in her bed remembering the crazy night she had with Mako, Bolin, and Tenzin's kids. "What a night..." She mumbled getting out of bed. That's when Pema knocked on her door. She opened it slightly and peered into Korra's room.
"Are you up?" She asked smiling and holding her pregnant stomach. Korra nodded.
"I just got up." She said. She headed out of her room andwalked downstairs with Pema. Her kids were already sitting outside meditating with Tenzin. "I'm kinda late aren't I?" She asked Pem scratching her head.
EnoughI'm very disappointed in all of you.Enough3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
Especially those of you who should know better.
Reading all these ranting, passive-aggressive journals.
Letting an issue get to this point where it's caused an all out war against each other. A war that NO ONE even knows what it's about or why it was even started.
Pretty fucking ridiculous if you ask me.
I don't know what you all are trying to achieve here, but I know for a damn fact that it's not for the better of the community. So stop using the community as a guise to justify your passive-aggressive actions and words.
This applies to all of you.
You know who you are.
So let me give you some important advice.
Some I learned while being in this community.
SomeI learned because I handled it the MATURE FUCKING WAY.
Shut the fuck up. Fucking apologize to the other. Let it fucking go. Draw some fucking art.
This is all I'm saying in the matter.

Dating Sim!Romano x Reader: Across the ScreenIt was like any other Saturday. I was just browsing through the internet in search for something to cure my boredom. That's when a pop-up appeared on my screen. It mentioned something about a new Hetalia dating sim.

When I clicked "Start", my mind was set on winning the (digital) heart of Romano. Why did I choose him, of all characters? Well, I could kinda relate to him in some ways. Sometimes I'm being compared to [Brother's name], but there are other things that I'm better in than him. Like, I don't know, maybe board games? I was always the shy and indecisive child in our family. In attempt to clear any other depressing thoughts, I snapped back into reality and started clicking away on the keyboard.
