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
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 depression5 months 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

Walking on cloud 9Just a little thing i wanna say~Walking on cloud 93 years ago in Personal More Like This
When we first talked it was through a review~
You reviewed my story and we got to talking.
After that we became friends,
but by January i had felt happy and excited to know you had always messaged me back.
Our RolePlay's are fun~
We cried, we laughed and most of all we got to know each other.
I realise now that i think i have fallen for you...
It was a harmless vcrush at first but now that we're finally dating i realise...i love you!
And i'll tell you in diffrent languages if i have to!
Wo ai Ni!
Ich liebe dich
I hope one day i can come to America and see you face to face!
I feel so happy when you're on Skype!
And i feel even happier when i cheer you up!
You're beautiful and i hope one day i can get you to see that!
You'll always be my Romano and i your Spain.
You're also my America...so far away! And i'm your England stuck on this small island!
I love you my sweet unconfident JASisJessica~
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.1 year 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.

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 Artist6 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
The Attitude Behind Learning to DrawOkay, so this is a topic that has come up a couple of times over on Facebook, and something I thought worth mentioning.The Attitude Behind Learning to Draw3 months ago in Personal More Like This
I remember back when I was in high school and I had those really artistic friends that could draw pretty much anything. They were amazing. Absolutely incredible. And I knew I would never be able to accomplish the kinds of art that these wonderful people could produce. I know people would ask them (and I was probably included in this group) questions like "How do you get good at drawing?" or "How can I learn to draw like that?" Little did I know that after walking the road to becoming an artist I would end up receiving the same questions. There are a couple of trends I've heard lately, however, that tend to go the same way over and over with different people. Here's the way some conversations go these days...

Advice to any new artists!A.K.A Ten things I wish I knew starting out.Advice to any new artists!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It is a long process to be good at art. You may think you're not good, and maybe you're not but that shouldn't stop you from pursuing this life changing and rewarding career. These are just some small bits of wisdom I can pass on to new generations of artists so that maybe you can avoid the pitfalls I fell into.
1. It is not a badge of honor to be self taught.
I used to think that being self taught meant I was special. It meant that my talent was mine alone and I never had to thank anyone for what I could do. Then I hit a ceiling. I could no longer progress and evolve as an artist based on what I figured out on my own. It isn't shameful to seek instruction and the longer you wait to do so the more bad habits you'll pick up that you'll have to break before you can evolve. Now, There are many great artists who have managed to teach themselves the proper way to do things through rigorous study and trial and error. But you do not ha
Tobuscus and PewdiepieHAY GUYS. if you pay attention and are a fan of Pewdiepie and Tobuscus. And your subscribed to Toby's game channel...WELL. I have become happy from both of them xD So in a recent Pewdiepie video, He was multiplaying with Cry on l4d2. And in the outro Cry went "OUTRO OF DARKNESS REDNESS WHITENESS FUCK WRONG GUY" xD and then Pewdie put a little box thingy and it said "We both love Toby" So i was like -mini fangirl moment- Oohhhhh YAY. And then I watched a Tobygames video, the one title "TOBUSCUS QUIZ!" And he took a quiz on himself and before that (its a happy wheels video :/) He played a level that was described as "Specially made for Pewdiepie" And toby started talking about him and when he got to the end of the quiz on himself, it said "what quiz should i make next?! Tobuscus quiz pt 3 OR Pewdiepie quiz" And Toby voted for the Pewdiepie quiz...my reaction to both of this..."....ONE STEP CLOSER TO PEWDBUSCUS BROMANCE. AND ANOTHER STEP CLOSER TO PLAYING A GAME TOGETHER" :3 soooo yah. HATobuscus and Pewdiepie3 years ago in Personal More Like This
