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.3 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.

*stole this journal idea from FA*How are you like the animal of your 'fursona'?*stole this journal idea from FA*2 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?

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

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

This is Madness! (and Sparta)Hello Eveyone!This is Madness! (and Sparta)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
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

Art help and podcastUnironic question about cartooning vs realismArt help and podcast2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A few days ago I asked for help with a drawing and i got a load of great advice. However, while taking the advice a lot of it helped reinforce a notion that frustrates me. The idea that "greater detail and anatomy = better products." Whenever I get criticism for my artwork, the general notion that I get is that people want me to make art more realistically, with greater sense of detail, lighting, perspective, and anatomy. And while I agree I need to work on all those aspects... I have qualms about being pushed in that direction. I like making cartoony drawings, so at what point do you cut off the realism in favor of being more cartoony? Why is being cartoony more frowned upon or seen as being lazy? One person in the threat that was helping me mentioned that while I did good on the artwork in question, I need to take the info with a grain of salt and be careful not to let people steer me towards being a realistic artist if cartooning
