TALENT IS EARNEDTalent is EarnedTALENT IS EARNED1 week ago in Personal More Like This
I get it. There are some people out there that do have some extreme capabilities right out of the womb, but this is targeted to those who are average joes, who think they can’t do things that a person with ‘Talent’ can.
Let’s start by defining the word ‘Talent’. According to dictionary.com it states
1. a special natural ability or aptitude: a talent for drawing.
2. a capacity for achievement or success; ability: young men of talent.
3. a talented person: The cast includes many of the theater’s major talents.
4. a group of persons with special ability: an exhibition of water colors by the local talent.
5. Movies and Television. professional actors collectively, especially star performers.
This definition, in my opinion, is misused when said to me. Because to me it implies that what I do, is specially natural to me and
How to Pay artists using PaypalI'm still getting payments for digital artwork that require shipping because people forget to click the 'no shipping required' box. I can have my account flagged if I don't ship items that apparently need to be shipped. Please be sure to take care when ordering digital commissions from artists! Here is a super cool Tumblr post that shows you how to do the right thing when ordering digi-commissions. I'll be using this helpful post when people order my commissions so people have a visual ref.

EDIT: Paypal recently revamped their site so everything is set up differently (I kinda liked how it was set up before) Here's how the 'goods and services' page should look: http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2014/185/8/d/image_by_araktugage-d7p8w6w.jpg
See how the address says it's optional? It's best not to choose any address when sending a payment for a digital commission(s) unless there's something that do

Among the officers is seventeen-year-old Lorin, the IPO's most skilled cadet. His co-workers distrust him, however, and in extreme cases barely tolerate him.

10 Tips to Improve your ArtThis is a short summary of the – in my opinion – most important points I found all over the internet, while studying what it needs to improve your drawing and painting skills. I hope it will be helpful to many aspiring artists!10 Tips to Improve your Art4 months ago in Art Features More Like This
1. Learn the basics
Perspective, composition, color theory, anatomy, lighting & shading – this may be boring, but it's very important. You have to understand the basics to have a foundation to build on.
Also start with realism. You can simplify it to comics or Manga once you have mastered the fundamentals.
2. Have the right attitude
Don't rely on talent alone. Expensive equipment or an art school won't automatically make your artworks brilliant. Don't expect anyone to teach you, but study on your own. You have to work hard to become a good artist. Don't give up, if you really want it.
3. Start early and have a plan
Start working on your art

"...as long as you have one.
If you don't then you're broken."
The Asexual Orientation
Asexuality is a sexual orientation where a person does not experience sexual attraction. One out of every hundred people is likely to be asexual and facts such as this are still pushing boundaries and challenging the thought that the pursuit of happiness doesn't have to include sexual attraction.
I am very passionate about creating bridges of understanding, as I have said many times before. To understand asexuality better, take into consideration that there are different ways of being attracted to a person and that these attractions are not necessarily tied together.
PE: Procrastination and Creativity Procrastination and CreativityPE: Procrastination and Creativity1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
"You can't just turn on creativity like a faucet. You have to be in the right mood.
What mood is that?
You are well-aware of the importance of this project, in fact you can't wait to get to it! Too bad you promised your friends to go for a drink, and then there's that movie. Also, your productivity is at its strongest at Midnight, first Tuesday after the Full Moon, starting earlier would be a waste of time. Make sure you are well-rested! After all, is there a better way to prepare yourself for a productive tomorrow than an enjoyable today?
Your diagnosis: Procrastination positive.
"Someday is not a day of the week."
