NaruHina QuotesToo take your brain off thingsNaruHina Quotes3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Because... I... don't want you to disappear here..." - Hinata, chapter 42.
"You're wrong Kiba-kun....Naruto-kun isn't that weak. Unlike me Naruto-kun always believed in his self-worth. I really thought that was incredible because I understand how difficult that is...Yet nobody would even look at that Naruto... nobody even tried to acknowledge him...but...now everyone is watching you....everyone is acknowledging you." - Hinata, Chapter 76
"I have always watched you. Watched you for all these years! Why is that...? I don't know why, but...When I look at Naruto-kun...I feel courage. I feel that if I try my best, even I can do it. That I am worth something. That's how I begin to feel." - Hinata, Chapter 80.
"I don't go back on my word... that is also my ninja way!" - Hinata, chapter 80
"I never knew Hinata was this incredible..." -Naruto, Chapter 80.
"Hinata… I promise you…. I will win!" – Naruto, chapter 81.

Drawing tips - tutorialHello watchersDrawing tips - tutorial3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some people ask me how I learned to draw and what tips I can give them! So I wrote a tutorial and hope it will help! Here are my tips for you to become a better drawer!
First of all a good drawing stands with good materials. Good paper (no copy paper) and good pencils. If you're not sure, the expensive ones are mostly pretty good! For graphite I use Staedtler Mars Lumograph and for colour Faber-Castell "Polycromos".You need to use different numbers of pencils: 4H for very light areas and 6B for the dark areas. A big contrast in a drawing makes a better drawing! You can't make a good drawing with one HB pencil. You need a 6B or 4B to create more depth in the drawing.Choose a good picture. The greatest drawer in the world can't make a good drawing from a bad picture. A high-resolution image is necessary to see all the details! Next to the high-resolution, it has to be an interesting picture. The result could be a beautiful drawing, however a boring image wouldn't attract a

Okay what is that title sorry (ゝ∀･)www
I hope this disturbing imagery haunts you for the remainder of 2013━just kidding.
Foolishness aside, I suppose this is my last Deviantart post for 2012!
I'm sure you've seen enough year's end messages so I'll make mine quick (´艸`)
I want to thank my friends, family and watchers from the bottom of my heart. Without your encouragement I would not have come this far, and without your love and support I would not be able to keep moving myself forward. I thank everyone for making my 2012 a meaningful and fulfilling year, and wish you all nothing but the very best for 2013 and years ahead! Have a wonderful new year, stay safe and healthy, and take care!

We're over 80,000!?!? Aki Con and UpdatesI had noticed that our subscriber count on the FDP Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/user/fightingdreamerspro?feature=guide) account was getting close to hitting 80,000 last week but I figured that we had until after N2U before that happened. Yesterday I logged into the FDP Youtube account and realized (after a while because I'm always the last horse to cross the finish line XD) that we had hit 80,000!!!! I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!! According to a 2005 census the city of Yalta has a population of 79, 982...

Of Getting An Art Major
A heated argument broke out in my house this afternoon.
I live in a rental situation, renting a large room (with my own bathroom and workspace, real nice setup) in a Filipino household. Love my landlord, get along great with the other housemates, but to emphasize the 'Filipino' aspect of the living situation, there's a lot of family taking residence here. And with family, with teenage offspring, with high standards and expectations from the older immigrant generation speaking upon the younger American-born kin, tension is inevitable.
The daughter of one of the housemates is loo

Some of the judges' comments:
"This piece is depressing, but completely and perfectly describes the despair and hopelessness people feel sometimes. When you feel so tired, and so useless, you just can't describe it, but this artist has nailed it down completely. The verses are very sweet yet sad, and it's like a surrender. I just love how easily this artist writes all these emotions."
"I love the atmosphere of this poem. The voice is really strong. The theme is great. I absolutely love the lines, "Just the way you want" and "Everything I do is wrong." It is a creative, strong, well written poem and very beautiful."
