Conquer your artblockI think every artist out here has experienced it at least one time in their career: the so called artblock. A moment of total lack of inspiration that suddenly hits you, and leaves you unable to create. Most often the solution is to just wait. Most artblocks will solve automatically with time. But there are circumstances in which an artblock doesn't automatically disappear, or when you have deadlines to catch. In that case, you might be helped by some basic tips to conquer your artblock.Conquer your artblock1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Over the years, I've experienced an artblock (or writersblock, as they call it for fiction writers) many, many times. Most of them were short, but the longest lasted over 2 years. Most of them solved on their own. But sometimes I just needed that little bit of extra help. Therefore, I made a list with a few tips and tricks to make your artblock go away. Hopefully it'll help you as well as it did me.
Beat your fear
Most artblocks come from fear. The fear of not being able to
AsexualityAlright, considering that this worked out very well last time and I'm bored I thought that I'd talk about another facet of my personality. I don't know if I would call it unusual, because apparently about every one out of a hundred people are asexual...? Honestly, it feels like a lot less and I'll get into that. For those who don't know, I am an aromantic asexual. You can be one without the other, although I don't know how common that actually is. It seems very simple to me and a very easy concept to grasp: people who are asexual do not have a sexual attraction to people of either gender, and people who are aromantic do not desire a romantic relationship with either gender. But honestly, anyone who has gone through middle school can tell that... life without sexual goals, desires, or interests is very different. Literally every conversation I had in the seventh grade was this:Asexuality6 months ago in Personal More Like This

"Oh, so you're gay then."

People getting butthurt over AdBlock ...Are seriously annoying me.People getting butthurt over AdBlock ...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Why should I deal with annoying ads which can HARM MY COMPUTER and even MYSELF ?
I understand that ads are somehow necessary and can help small webmasters to gain money for their work, but seriously, between over used ads, and the malicious ones ... That's a pain in the ass for me. Sorry guys.
what is it with everyone committing suicide?now, i'm not trying to sound heartless, but everyone on here has been committing suicide nowadays. why? suicide is never the answer. when i got bullied by that pedophile, i never killed myself. i solved my own problems. i don't want anyone to kill themselves. it makes me really sad. especially my friends on here. it was never like this when i joined this site.what is it with everyone committing suicide?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
what i think is pure lazinesswhen people are too damn lazy to comment on my profile. instead, they comment on a deviation that has NOTHING TO DO with the damn deviation! for example, some spammer commented on my half ponytail Jake deviation pestering me to click on someone's profile and click out. i marked that comment as spam. i was gonna say that it's rude to pester somebody to do this, but i wasn't going to. seriously people, are you that lazy to comment on my profile?? Allah have mercy! i don't comment on someone's deviation saying something that has nothing to do with the deviation! just... wow... if you want to post a comment about something random, DON'T POST IT ON MY DEVIATIONS!!! i will hide that comment if i ever see it! i'm getting tired of seeing random comments on my deviations.what i think is pure laziness1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Shutting Down.Well I'm not going into full detail on this. Today I had a major mental breakdown after school today due to personal reasons that I won't fully share. I might not be on DeviantArt to submit any art for a few days time. I feel like I'm shutting down and just want to stop doing what I'm doing. I'm not handling this situation well and I'm just going to try and relax for the next few days or attempt too. I hope you enjoy your week and hope to see you guys soon.Shutting Down.1 year ago in Personal More Like This

You'd think they're heartless, a shame to humanity, and yet, they reveal themselves as sensitive, more human and kind than ever.
I have so many examples in mind ... Let's take one from Courage the Cowardly Dog :
Remember Fred ? http://courage.wikia.com/wiki/Fred :iconfredplz: You'd think he's crazy, evil, naughty... Yet, at the end of that episode he said "Maybe I'm not that naughty", and that's where you read his signature "With all my love, Fred."
Another example :
Creepy, evil, dark as fuck ... And yet, at the end, it appears that all he wanted is honesty and caring. Isn't that beautiful ?

Lack of Feedback??, Time for a Break.Lately, I haven't been getting that much Comments, Critiques and Feedback in general on my new posts..Lack of Feedback??, Time for a Break.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
regardless of the fact that I've been submitting ONE Deviation daily,
and, have done so on either 1:00 or 2:00 in the afternoon.
I think it may be time for me to take a break.
you know, stop posting stuff for awhile.
if my watchers are THAT desperate for updates,
then, they should probably give my feedback on what HAS been updated thus far.
I need more time to work on my art and fiction Offline, anyhow.
and, maybe a temporary withdraw will get others back on track
(course, the worst case scenario is this won't make any difference,
and, most probably won't even notice my absence..)
Whatever..I need more time to work.

Readers on both DeviantART and Fanfiction.net
have seemed to 'Begged' and 'Pleaded' for me to update
my Teen Titans/Batman crossover: 'On Dark Wings...'
and, yet..when i finally found the time to do so
the chapters that i've uploaded have BARELY had any views.
i mean, i didn't expect much, but SERIOUSLY..One or Two Comments and Favs??
you'd think at how people were acting, my Message Box would be FLOODED with activity by now.
I don't mean to complain..but, seriously.
i put alot of work, and sacrificed alot of my free time to get these finished and posted.
the lack of attention..kinda make me ask myself: "Why Bother??"
So..if you all want me to keep updating
(or, post the Sequel and Prequel to say the least)
then, TRY and make an effort in letting me know that you still care.
I did everything humanly possible to get these things noticed.
I submited them to Groups, i posted them on 'Featured' on my profile
i even re-submited thru th

Is no longer alone
his life is not easy; a winding, sometimes whimsical, sometimes tragic journey that ultimately finds terminus in the same common destination for each of us. No matter the brave, fierce constructs we build and serve that would have us believe we are each one of us all alone as we make this journey, we make our way toward the end of all things side-by-side in our community of the living each day defying death. Our paths may be wildly divergent—the way of the hungry and impoverished traveling the same timeline with the grotesquely indulgent, the very best of us side-by-side with the most evil of us; but all headed for the same fate: dust.

I'm putting almost every sword into storage and yes, planning to make more of them. I'll tell about that later on. New Elucidator is basicly sold and Kurikara is still reserved for the DA user who commissioned it, BUT if she isn't getting the money together by 31.5.2013, I will sell it for anyone who gives me the money. I have given her time 6 months to pay it. It's plenty of time and I know that money isn't growing in trees. I do know that fact too well.
One good thing is that I return into work 6.5.2013. Not into my original work station, but I hope that I could return in there too soon. Work is work and they pays me to do my job. I have been layoffed around 3 months now, but I have s
