Internet Trolls and Slander...Hello everyone.
Well, this is pretty ironic. Remember my poll about cyber-bullying I posted some time ago? Well, right now I'm going through something like that. Cyber-bullying.
So, some person that I'm not going to name and who I don't know, ever met or even ever spoke to has been sending mass PM's to all my friends, watchers and all my club members lies and slander about me, and the sad this is, a lot of people for some reason fall for it. To some they send lies that my artwork is stolen, to some that I'm a hacker/script kiddy and to some that I'm a spammer bot spamming and exploiting bugs or holes in the system. And he encourages everyone to report me to dA staff.
Now, I have never done any of these things, so I'm really confident reporting me will do no good. But why do it? Why spread slander and lies about me? Please, people, I beg you, don't believe this person. He's just a person with 2 deviations and really low activity, so it's definitely someone's sockpuppet. Of course nobody
I think I can draw again!I think I might be getting my creativity back( not sure if anyone has notice...but I have hardly drawn anything for months :iconcryforeverplz...I guess its just that maybe I felt like all the stuff I was watching was getting stale ( either the anime/manga wasn't worth watching anymore considering the latest chapters e.g Naruto/Bleach..etc or the Anime was so short that I had explored most of the possibilities already e.g Death Note) I need new stuff! Avatar is amazing...Its quite childish in places but its light hearted and has a plot that progresses and has a deeper meaning etc. And the characters are adorable! specially Appa...Omg he is so cute. Oh and too the the countless droves of people who are asking me if I have been living in a cave my whole life and why haven't I watched Avatar before? Its because I don't really like cartoons...weird I know.. considering I watch anime/manga. I am suuupppeerrr picky, I won't watch anything that doesn't look interesting or to my tastes.

Goals...?I've been thinking about this for a while now. What exactly do I want to do with comics? What are some of my goals? What's the future hold for my stuff? Here are just a couple of stream of conscious thoughts:Goals...?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I don't want to be big on YouTube, that's for sure. I've never liked getting in-front of the camera, I don't have the time or ambition to work on animations anymore, and I certainly can't crank out videos as fast as some of the big guys over there. It's a huge competition and I just don't want to have anything to do with that. I think my youtube page is marked private and you have to have specific links to view anything. I might make an odd video here or there, but they're most likely just goofy things I do for fun, not for any sort of attention or recognition.
I'm curious about how I should move forward with DA. I think a majority of my haters are outraged that I'm popular on DA and that I'm content with drawing simple cartoons when I'm obviously talented enough to do more comple
How To Receive CritiqueThis article was worked on collaboratively by *Hixateez and `miontre.How To Receive Critique1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Receiving criticism is at least as difficult as writing one in the first place. Even reading what other artists have written about your work can be challenging. However, learning of the opinions of others regarding your work is one of the most important tools you can use to improve.
This blog is meant to be a guide on how to take the most out of the feedback you receive to grow as an artist.
Open your mind
No matter how you feel about your own work, try to be neutral when reading the feedback you've received. It's much too easy to subconsciously decide that your work is good just the way it is and end up denying the existence of the faults, or vice versa. This will only make reading the feedback harder for yourself. It's okay to be proud. It's okay to be disappointed. It's not okay to disapprove of other artists' opinions simply because they differ from your own feelings.
