PE :Artistic ExcusesYou know, everywhere in the world, inspiration strikes, new artists are born, and new styles are born. We all start as beginners and take our time...but then certain points...there are times when we feel a certain way about our art. Some people don't think that they cannot get better when you know you can. Some people feel they should quit....when you can keep going. Some people feel like you're nothing...when you are something...those things are called excuses...there is no excuse why you cannot accomplish your goals to become an artist. The quotes you see oftenPE :Artistic Excuses1 year ago in Personal More Like This
"OMG! Your art is so cute!"
"That is awesome!"
"I love your art"
"Your art is very cool and different."
That alone should motivate you to keep going. But if you still feel weary of your art and if you still feel like your art cannot get better even after comments that should motivate your to keep going, here's a guide to help you out and a guide of excuses that are often shown w
Thank The Lord for Pasta! N.Italy x ReaderThe light of the rising sun seeps in through the blinds as Ricky jumps up on your bed and licks your nose. Ricky tells you're not awake by the way you sit there under the sheets. He licks you again, this time on your mouth. Startled, "Ew! Ricky! Nasty!" You sit up and wipe the slobber off your mouth. Picking him up you move him off of your bed and on to the floor. You walk up to the mirror and the hair you pulled back the night before is messy and your bobby pins have fallen out. Pulling them out one by one, you let your hair fall at your shoulders. Fluffing it a little, you walk over to your nightstand and bend over a little. Your red beta fish, Swimmy needs to be fed. Picking up the food can you spin the top off and grab a pinch of fish pellets. You lift the top off the fish tank and sprinkle the pellets in. You close the top and spin the cap to the fish food back on. You lazily walk to the bathroom and pull out your flat iron.Thank The Lord for Pasta!

How To Give Better Comments
During our visit here at deviantART, upon submitting our deviations, what is expected next? Comments! However, here's a little fun past-time activity: take all the excellent, if not better, deviations comments in your gallery. Now take a look at all the deviation comments you've ever received. You will notice that good comments don't happen as often as they should. Although we all want good comments and to be better commenters ourselves, we have to act upon it instead of just sitting around and hoping to receiving nice comments after submitting something. Give, to receive.
Here I show you the basic concept of commenting, to make yourself a better commenter; and I don't mean being a 'good' commenter since everyone comments in his or her own way. That i

I have been in a certain mood lately~
A Luffy mood, as a matter of fact~
What does that mean, you may be asking yourself?
It means, if you read my journal post with my questions, it said "Who is your anime crush?"
or something like that xD ~
Anyway, I answered Luffy~
So, I've been thinking, since I'm in my "Luffy" mood, I can't stop thinking about him
Now to the point
I wanted to hold a contest~
The contest will basically be kind of like a pairing contest, except it won't be an OC~ It'll be Luffy and just Luffy~
So what do you have to do?
All you have to do is draw an a picture of Luffy~ :3

BUT BOY DO I FEEL GOOD ABOUT MY ART.
and you should too!
Tips on becoming the artist you want to be
✸ note that these are tips on how I've started- everyone is different! Learn however you want to learn!
1. STOP DRAWING ONLY FOR OTHERS AND JUST START DRAWING FOR YOU
Ok so this for me was the hardest step. I never ever drew for enjoyment. Even when I drew my characters I wasn't really having fun? What you should do is stop all commissions. Stop all trades. And give yourself one day to draw to make you happy. Even if you don't improve at all you will start loving your art! I know I do!
2. FIND ART THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY
What is better than finding a style that you really love? Than looking at all this art from people that inspires you? NOTHING. (okay maybe besides starbucks and kittens but still!)
when you fin

Sylveon. They look cute and adorable on the outside, but on the inside, who knows what they’re planning…plotting…wondering.
It all started two weeks after Pokémon X and Y were released, I had just got home from school and I decided to play some Pokémon Rumble Blast on my 3DS since I had no homework. I had not gotten Pokémon X or Y yet, but I was expecting to get it sometime soon. To my surprise my mom walked into my room and showed me the brand new and still unwrapped Pokémon Y game. I was jumping for joy when she handed me the game and I immediately started playing it.
Once the main title screen appeared, I went through usual Pokémon intros of the games. Professor Sycamore had asked for my gender, name, and hair color, which was female, Taryn, and black hair, since they didn't have dark brown as an option.
After meeting my rivals and picking my starter, Fennekin, I continued to play through the game. I had alwa

Most of these I gathered on my own. Another great list is here: http://nepeta.mozai.com/shimeji/ All the shimeji on that list are also listed here.
The first list set will all take you to the original source of the shimeji, NOT the direct download. Some of the download links are in the descriptions. The second list set is of direct downloads for shimeji with uncredited sources. If you know who they belong to, please let me know. ALWAYS credit your source when posting images of the shimeji!
If you know of a shimeji not on this list please let me know! I'm always trying to keep it updated and hunt for original sources. I know there's a lot more out there that I own or have seen but can't find the original links for so any help you have would be greatly appreciated!

I own none of these, and all due credit to the respected owners and creators.
If you find a link that doesn't work or has been deleted, please tell me, please.
In Shimeji-ee, when you download the shimeji, take the images from the img folder and copy them. Then, in the img folder under shimeji-ee, create a folder with the name of the character, and paste the images in that folder.
If your shimeji isn't working, try some of these problem solvers:
(Usually this is a .zip file problem) If you downloaded the zip one, you need to find the file called conf, this file contains two xml documents, whose names need to be changed to 動作 and 行動
Hopefully no more problems arise.
You must open .zip and .rar files via an extractor. Most computers already have a .zip file extractor, but please refer down below to the software section for a .rar file extractor, which most computers do not come with
