(Closed for the time being) FundraisingI have everything I need for now, thank you so much to everyone who helped me. I have the things I need now at my fingertips and am quickly becoming a happier, healthier person. My night terrors, anxiety, depression and other mental issues to do with my personality disorder and grief are affecting me in a much more minor way, and I am a lot better now. I can't thank you all enough, I couldn't have got here without you <3(Closed for the time being) Fundraising2 months ago in Personal More Like This
So, I've been having some problems with my mental health, some of which I've shared with you and some of which I haven't. It's all around my Grandad, my friend Logan, and my two pet cats Mischief and Kitten who have all died recently. Missy dying opened the gate to all the grief I'd cut myself off from, to the point where I spent everyday actively trying to stop myself from dying. The panic attacks, paranoia, grief and insomnia has driven me to the point where I feel blank, and that's as far into it as I'm getting, aside from the fact I'm seeking professional,

im pretty sure my house is haunted *please read*ok so ive had this suspicion for a long time but today pretty much confirmed it for meim pretty sure my house is haunted *please read*2 months ago in Personal More Like This
* in mid 2012 on a rainy night i saw a figure that looked like an adult woman near the stop sign a bit aways from my house
*it was there for three nights and then vanished
*three years later, in june, i started finally beginning to open up about that encounter
*since then, things have been weird
*i constantly feel as if im being watched
*for a few weeks, there would be a cold presence outside my room and when id walk through it, the air felt heavy and it was difficult to breathe
*this was only at night
*this lasted for several weeks but now its taken a more... physical approach
* when i was in the shower, a bottle fell down behind me
*there was nothing that could have caused it to fall
*it made a much louder noise than it should have, considering how it was almost completely empty
*but afterwards, i felt a pressure on my neck, like hands tightening around it
* i had to get out of the shower bc

Stylization and Avoiding Being an Art AssholeStumbled on an "anatomy blog" showcasing breakdowns of [mostly] bad art to highlight how broken their anatomy is. Which is fine, it can be a great learning tool and exercise, but finding obviously stylized work by master character designers getting shat on by amateur artists is...frustrating**.Stylization and Avoiding Being an Art Asshole3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Designs like these come from a shape-based theory of character design where anatomy doesn't matter as much as mood and implication. It's part of a design language stretching back to studios like Bauhaus and UPA.
If you're looking at something designed like Kim Possible* and going "HAHA THIS WORK IS SHIT LOOK THEIR HIPS ARE TOO LOW THAT'S NOT HOW PEOPLE ARE BUILT!" you are missing the point. THOSE designers aren't going for verisimilitude. Fidelty wasn't the point. The point is matching the feel of a character and making them match their world.
(*not the show the critique was aimed at, but the design they were ripping on was by Step

Commissions WidgetSome of you may aware of the newest released feature by deviantART- that very long awaited widget/module/space for commission on your personal page.Commissions Widget3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here is my thought about it, no, actually a serious concern where I posted there- please read it first: http://comments.deviantart.com/1/347788178/2897698997
To add more: in my opinion I am quite disappointed with that new commission module which have quite childlish feeling (devART, IMHO, represents art as entertaiment which is pushing far away from art as a serious profession in our real world /where in effect many people don't take us, full time working artists seriously etc./ besides of Portfolio release where they did a good job. But when money is involved...) and that's pretty much fast-food commission for quick take and out (points, quick modul and price limit).
That addition of the price limit (which is very low) which may suggest to many young people about fixed general idea of price with art into mentality (art has

This is a new thing I'm doing, and will try to be consistent with.
Each week I will create a raffle animal, which can be obtained only here.
The animal could be anything, from a cat, to an original species, or some random creature I've made.
This is a gift to my watchers, so have fun, and follow the simple rules!
1) You must be watching me (none of that watch, unwatch stuff please)
2) Please no complaining if you don't get the creature, you're sure to win at some point!
3) You can enter each week (for now) but please try to be considerate of other people if you've already won the week before
4) You may do whatever you want with the pet (change the animal, put in story, ect.), but the first time drawing, please note me as the creator :3

Tip for Today: When to give up?Never give up just because you don't think you're good enough. We've all had our doubts in life. Successful people do not give up easily. We must prepare and prepare again, try your very hardest and then about 50% more that you didn't know you had consistently, then keep going twice as long as you ever thought you would or could. Look for more knowledge and try again.Tip for Today: When to give up?4 years ago in Personal More Like This
