One final submission to the September/October challenge! -->
Still no new submissions! Although there are no more Fridays before November and our next Creative Craft Challenge, you still have until the end of October to participate in this challenge, get your artwork featured here in this journal, and have a chance to be the Member of the Month for October. Here are a few paracord bracelets submitted to dA in the past month, as a little extra inspiration!
See you next week!
... Did I miss Friday again? Sorry about that everyone, I just got a new job (seasonal clerk, nothing exciting) so it's been a whirlwind couple of days.
Anywho, there were no new submissions this week. :C But! You still have nearly two weeks left to participate in the challenge for September/October

I can't take it anymore!
It's not you guys, it's my real life.
And DeviantArt just stresses it twice as much.
I won't be gone long hopefully, I'll probably come back before the 6th. But, yeah.
Don't worry about the things I owe you.
See you guys later.
I might leave for good when my To-Do list is complete.
Daww guys, don't be sad.
Think this as my way of feeling back to myself once I return.
If I'm good when I get back, of course I'll stay ^^
O and school starts tomorrow btw x.x
The stuff that artists go through.There are so many pro's and con as to being an artist, professional or as a hobby.The stuff that artists go through.10 months ago in Personal More Like This
It feels nice to be able to express yourself through something you make and when that something turns out to be looking good we get this sense of accomplishment.
Most of the time though there are bad feelings mixed with the good ones.
Not being understood. Those moments where your friends or family does not understand that you have to desire to be alone and work on your art. Those copious amounts of hours you spend working and they wonder why you wouldn't rather be outside relaxing in the sun or hang out with your friends.
The only people who will ever fully understand this are other artists or simply very understandable people. It's important they they will eventually understand so there wont be any hurt feelings. Try to explain ti as calmly and rational as you can, perhaps with using examples in terms they would understand.
Tips for getting through depressionWell, these help me anyway. I hope they help whoever's having issues with it. Please note that this is just from my personal experience. I'm not calling myself an expert on this at all.Tips for getting through depression1 month ago in Personal More Like This
1. Vent to friends
I don't mean in a journal or to just one friend. If you're feeling down, take up someone's offer to help and shoot them a note, especially if you've known them a while. Getting things off your chest often helps. And even if all your friends are on the internet, they're still friends. They will do whatever they can to help.
2. Do stuff for you
If you're having issues with depression, put all owed art you have aside and do things for you. You're not a machine, you're a human being. And if drawing is part of the problem, take a break from drawing. Watch a feel-good movie. Cry all you want. Read fanfiction or an old roleplay that you loved. Buy commissions for yourself, or sign up for requests that you see. But the internet is often a large contributor to depression, so if being on the in

*stole this journal idea from FA*How are you like the animal of your 'fursona'?*stole this journal idea from FA*3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm going to copy/paste what the person put:
I'm curious how you all relate to the animal you chose for yourself, or animals if you have multiple personas!
For example, your character is a wolf; in what ways do you think you are wolf-like? I don't mean you bark at people and howl at the moon, however. I'm more curious about what lupine traits you think you carry, like do you have a close nit team of friends? Are you tenacious at your goals and good at surviving or whatever?
Their journal: http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/3228701/#cid:24886030
Now, for me:
Well my fursona is half Corgi, but I'm not at all Corgi like. :/
Corgis are energetic, and bold. A Corgi personality would be the basketball player who is going into politics. The person who seems like they would be a push over, but get to know them and you realise how strong them are. Just not like me at all. 8C
I'm really much more like a sheep. XD

Being A Girl SucksYou know what's awkward?Being A Girl Sucks6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Having your period when the only other person in the house is your dad.
You know what else is awkward?
Running out of pads and being too young to drive to get some more.
You wanna know what's more akward?
Asking your sister for some and her saying she doesn't have any.
YOU WANNA KNOW WHAT'S EVEN MORE AWKWARD
Having to ask your dad to go to the store so you can get some pads.
Me: ... Can we go to the store really quick?
Dad: I don't have any money.
Me: ... I do. *internally cringes because that's my cosplay money right there
Dad: Uhm okay... why?
Me: I NEED GIRL STUFF GOD STOP BADGERING ME
Me: YEAH CAN WE GO NOW
Dad: Uhm sure
Whenever I'm on my period my dad is almost scared to talk to me, but I seriously don't blame him I'm a monster
BUT MY PERIOD ALWAYS HAS A WAY OF KNOWING WHEN TO COME

Project 2013 - Get a Life!Hello my little deerlings! Some big news!Project 2013 - Get a Life!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The first full week of year 2013 has started and this time has made think and reflect on my life.
The year 2013, will be probably one of the most important of my life so far. I will graduate officially soon which means I am no longer student but a grown up woman who needs to support herself. This means I need to find a job, get my own apartment... Yaya! AGAIN I have to move... Thankfully not too soon but... Most likely next Autumn. Yes very important year indeed. Time to become a responsible and productive member of society. Phhhthphlol.
This means I really need to start looking for myself. I have already updated my portfolio, made a new email address for work related business etc.... I might even start my own trade name! I have also FINALLY started to upload art to my personal DA account. That is an account where I only post my original art. I won't give the account name yet so please be patient. I will reveal it late

Photoshop TutorialHey my little deerlings!Photoshop Tutorial2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Remember that photoshop tutorial I mentioned long time ago I would do?
Well! I finally decided to start doing something about it! Last night, I wrote down a list of things I would like to talk about in it and I would like to tell you what I have planned. Because this will be multiple part tutorial, I won't be doing only one, but 3 or even 4 different tutorials.
Here are what I was planning to talk about in each part.
Part 1 - Getting to know Photoshop! Tips, tools and Tricks.
In this part, I would pretty much introduce you to photoshop and the tools that I use the most. I would teach you some of the most helpful tools and their shortcuts. Some words about layers and how to use them. And maybe something about filters and adjustments.
This is obviously not that important if you are already quite familiar with photoshop but you might learn something new. The main reason though is to make you familiar with some of the tools so I don't have to explain them in
How to Commission an ArtistI've been commissioning artists for a little over two years now, starting with site money on GaiaOnline and moving to dA from there. One thing that's hard for me to ignore is the number of artists who are concerned about being scammed, either because they've gone through that experience before or because the stories and warnings of it happening all the time proliferate. Commissioners have their own concerns about being scammed by artists. The simple fact of the matter is that it happens.How to Commission an Artist5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
However, I think a good portion of the problem is that many people who want to commission an artist have no experience doing so, and it's not as easy to find instructions on it as, say, how to draw anime eyes. That's why I'm making this guide.
It should be noted that while I mention commissioning through other websites now and then, this is meant as to general guide, and all of the examples are from deviantart.com. Also, this does not

Life has been pretty crazy lately. I just moved to a new apartment and we won't get our internet until a week later so I just want announce a few things while I still have the chance (using my friend's wifi atm).
1. Fanime was amazing! Thank you all who dropped by my table, and sorry that I lost my voice on the 4th day too much talking lol... It was great making new friends, hanging out with old friends, and just seeing other deviants in real life! I'm sorry a lot of the prints sold out on the first day, but I will try to open online sales for certain prints once I get my internet back. And I will definitely print more for future conventions
My deepest apologies for not having 1000 Words for Fanime. The printers at Active Media Publishing http://www.activemediapublishing.com/ promised over and over that they would have it ready, but they didn't, and when we called them about it, they hung up on us. As a matter of fact, we still don't have the book
