But I am always back to give opinions that nobody cares about
"And judging by all of the (stupid) haters & trolls' art, anti-fics, stamps, etc.; The couples they want to see broken-up are:"
I can't speak for everyone but I personally don't care if you keep your characters together with those cartoons you're fantasising about.
I just think your characters are Mary-Sues. Yes they are. You never properly develop them outside of their "love interest" stories, but this has already been said again and again.
Anyway, I'll be around, even if not posting much!

You got me, I really wish I was Bia Jetream.
At nights I sit awake looking at the sky, dreaming of what it'd be like to be such a pure and innocent character like Bia Jetstream. I have styled my hair to look like hers, the big fringe take a hell of a lot of hair gel to keep up! After searching the internet one night I found some lilac contacts and just had to have them to complete my

You think deleting your journals is a way to get around the fact that you threw a tantrum at your fans? :icontrollfaceplz:
On my latest poll on which of my LUxOC pairings is your favorite, why did most of you guys faved SlamxAgnes (Slagnes)?
I didn't have any thing against my own pairings, but why did most of you pick it?
Is it because I need to show picture of them more often, and Slam doesn't get much love?
The poll says who is your favorite, not who I should draw more.
Plus, Slam already did got paired up with fan characters before Agnes.
Why so butthurt Sony-Mae?
I read this and felt bad that I had not yet voted for SlamxAgnes but I went back and made sure I did :3 although they'd already won!
My dear, maybe the reason people like this pairing better is because you *haven't* messed with them as much as th

RIP Cal WorthingtonJust found out today that Cal Worthington passed away. A lot of you guys and gals probably don't know who he was, but he was quite an iconic used car salesman back in the 80's and 90's. One of his best-known shticks was his 'dog', Spot. The gag was that 'Spot' could be any animal, except a dog. Those commercials were incredibly entertaining, and it was quite neat to see one of the big cats climbing around on the cars. From what I remember, 'Spot' was once even an elephant.RIP Cal Worthington3 months ago in Personal More Like This

Totally Fangirling Out Now!Just watched the eight episodes of the Sailor Stars fandub. Wow. I'll hafta try out for Sailor Tin Cat... wonder if they'd like the line 'Bye-bye, birdie! Say hi to Jedite!' or something like that for when Lead Crow gets sucked into a black hole. Though I dunno if they'd want to insert any first-season references. And the "Sailor Says" parts? Omigosh! Almost exactly like the DIC versions, save for the youtubers reference. And of course, the good ol' Negaverse is mentioned.

Another Coward Bans Me. Boohoo.Hey SonicClone, you think that by banning me from your page, you can keep me from writing critiques on your art. Wrong. I can still write them from my journal. Count on being featured again in a future issue of "How NOT To Draw". These drawings you've done? Not a 'style. Nope. They are poorly-drawn characters that look like sacks of goo. Learning on your own is fine, but for Pete's sake try to follow some advice people give you - it'll help in improving your art and make you look more mature.Another Coward Bans Me.

Anyhoo, for the rest of you guys and gals reading this, I do like getting positive comments, but I like critiques even more. Comments like 'cool' or 'nice' aren't as helpful as a comment pointing out something that needs fixing. Even professional artists need critiques, because we all are capable of laziness as we improve. And I think we never really stop improving in whatever we do, so long as we practice.

I gots banned from both dudes' pages. Wow. Thrillingraccoon really needs to start listening to constructive criticism, but it looks like he will forever be making crappy trace pictures and blowing all his money on character sheets. A shame really, 'cause I believe anyone who can write with a pencil can also draw.
One thing he doesn't understand is, banning someone from your page will NOT stop him/her from saying things that offend you. Now, ~ThrillingRaccoon needs critiques. He will never improve until he starts learning to listen to them, and I think he has potential to improve. You guys know what to do
How NOT To Draw: The Goggles Do Nothing - Part 1If you've been on DeviantArt for any length of time, you'll probably happen upon some really scary stuff. I'm not talking about stuff you'd see in a haunted house. Nope. I'm thinking more like your nightmares after eating a ginormous pizza and mozzarella sticks, then washing it down with some pepsi or your soda of choice, then falling asleep on your couch, too tired to drag your bloated gut to bed.How NOT To Draw: The Goggles Do Nothing - Part 19 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Ok. Sorry for that image. Some people just aren't into inflation art, which brings us to our first example of How NOT To Draw:
Kphoria is 28, but knows next to nothing about how to draw believable cartoons. He frequently abuses the ellipse tool and seems to be obsessed with vore/inflation. A little bit of vore can go a long way, especially when ALL of the pictures feature fat characters who realistically wouldn't be able to walk, and would be stuck in bed covered in sores and possibly suffering from deep vein thrombosis, aka "economy class syndrome". Basically, if you don't get

How NOT To Draw: Sacks Of Goo - Part 1In this issue, we have a couple fun ones. I don't know their ages, but they draw like they're twelve or younger, for the most part. When posting art on this site, it's important that you do some studying on basics, as I've mentioned countless times. You must learn about basic shapes, proportions, foreshortening, perspective - lots of things - or your figures will end up looking like sacks of goo.How NOT To Draw: Sacks Of Goo - Part 19 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Here's our first artist: ~HouseOfFrancis
Now I'm not sure how old he is, like I said. He does, however, seem to not know how to draw properly or use the tools in MSPaint to their full potential. He also doesn't seem to know how to give his drawings structure.
In this one, for example, the wolf(or whatever it is) seems to have no skull, or a very soft one, as his spiky hair seems to cut into it. Even those who do heavily stylized art like cartoons with big noses will be mindful of structure, proportions and perspective. T
Critique Me! - Arlos411:iconarlos411:Critique Me! - Arlos4119 months ago in Art Features More Like This
His art does look like it was done by someone about a fourth to a third of his age, but arlos411 is one of those artists who do accept critiques. I've mentioned him in my news article "How NOT To Draw - Act Your Age". As I mentioned in that article, I felt he could do better. Here is an opportunity to improve the content: go to arlos411's gallery and give him some heavy critiques, and perhaps some requests. Show him a photo and ask him to use it as a reference for a practice picture. Show him your favourite tutorials, and maybe some that would help him with MSPaint and Muro.
MSPaint does not automatically make paintings suck, and an expensive program like Corel Painter does not automatically make a painting or drawing look good. It's not the tools you have; it's how you use them. Draw some pictures using these free applications, and perhaps some tutorials on some other free programs.
Here is an example of a drawing tutorial:
How NOT To Draw: Don't Critique Me!!! - Part 1On DeviantART, we are bound to find some talented artists who have gone stagnant because they do one thing that raises the ire of many: they refuse critique. Critiques are wonderfully helpful even to the more advanced artists because no matter how good you get, there's always room for improvement.

The star of this issue of How NOT To Draw is =Tiny-Toons-Fan
As you can see, her art is quite nice, but the linework and perspective need lots of improvement, and she needs to work on the shading as well. It's inconsistent, and as you can see, it looks very dodge/burn-y.
In this picture, the shading on Shirley Loon looks okay, but could be better. The shading on Plucky Duck, however, is very flat and doesn't really conform to the contours of his body that well. She could do better. Plus, she could have made a simple background, instead of just a blank

~Foxie11Heart and ~darcat1530
Now darcat1530 is the one with most of the fanart, while Foxie11Heart mostly has photographs, but both have galleries full of no-nos.
First off, ~darcat1530
I'm not sure what to make of this artist, and I don't know if he is just very unskilled with digital art. Some of his fanart is quite good, for example his pictures of Charlie Chaplin, but his comics leave much to be desired. For example, in this comic: http://darcat1530.deviantart.com/art/A-Stroke-Of-Luck-1-357622034 the figures look okay but the backgrounds are mostly just patterns, and I don't know if he has permission to use them(could be wrong). These comics, however, just do not look as good as the pictures of Charlie Chaplin. Anyone who can draw something like this: http://darcat1530.deviantart.com/art/Charliefunny-360201970 can certainly do a bett

This is a good example on how not to draw; the swing set looks very lopsided and dangerous. Now if the characters looked like sacks of goo, that could be forgiven due to lack of drawing skill. However, the characters look almost exactly like they do in their cartoon. It smacks of tracing.
Note the heavy flood fills of red and other primary/secondary/default colours, possibly from either GIMP or hax'd Photoshop. The grass looks horrible - it looks as though he used the gigantic Photoshop sponge brush to make the pattern, and that is a very poor way to make a grass texture.
The background has some playground equipment that looks like a cutout, and the right side of the ladder should be a little lower than the left, considering the overall position of the slide.
Also note how unfinished the picture looks. Some parts, like the girl character's eyes and nose, are inked and coloured, while others, like the boy d

This one really interested me as my real creative "ability" is writing. I put a lot of thought into my characters and stories, and I have been doing so for years. I don't share my stuff online though, it's too scatty and constantly changing, plus this account is purely for parody art and ranty commentary. I have in the past suggested to dear Keisha that she work more on developing the backgrounds of her characters to make them seem less "sue-ish", and it's good to see she has attempted something, but this was...well...
