How to beat procrastination (part 2)Most of the excuses for not drawing is lacking of ideas. On part 1 of this journal I explained why I find it useful to keep a notebook with you, and to write down your ideas whenever possible.How to beat procrastination (part 2)5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This second part is about developing the habit of drawing. Hope you find it useful!
Create the habit of drawing
First thing to know about creating new habits is that it works kinda like inertia law:
"An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force. An object in motion continues in motion."
Which means that the more you postpone your drawings the more you'll feel like delaying them. This procrastination abyss can be endless. For instance, I didn't draw anything in 2013 until the end of August when I bought my fi

How to draw during 365 daysHow to draw during 365 days4 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
By the beginning of 2014 I started this account and uploaded a doodle a day during a year. It was the most challenging thing I ever did and it helped me loads on improving my art.
I've seen a lot of mentions on my inbox about artists that are starting their own 365 Days challenge and I want to write this journal to share what I've learned through my experience and maybe encourage some of you to join this long term journey.
It's okay to start simple!
My first doodles were waaay more simple than the other ones. If I had to start the project again I would still do them simple. Of course, starting this challenge is very exciting but it's a dead end if you put a heavy load on yourself at the beginning!
Focus on knowing your pace first. How much time does it take you to finish your drawings?

O-OI swear my mind is one seriously fucked up demented place!O-O1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I had a dream I was visiting my dad ,who was suddenly rich for some reason, for my little brothers birthday, which was last month. They had a huge bouncy house that has a swing set inside it! All the kids and teens where all playing inside it. I of coerce couldn't get up from the ground be ing the push over I am and when it was time to go back I stayed behind to catch my breath. I spotted....what looked like a teenage Harley Quinn and a normalish looking teenage boy. He suddenly stabbed a knife threw the side of the head and threw a potion on her. He then said in a hushed tone " Go my monster, create havoc!"
Harley then rushed off into my dad's house and I followed keeping an eye on all that was happening. Harley's face wasn't her face tho O-O. Blade then came to the party and killed Harley and then I found out Blade was my father and he killed my other father and my step mother and adopted my brother.

News and a curious fact about SwitzerlandHi there, guys! I have a little news for you. During the past months, I have writen several fanfics, and now I am going to upload them. I felt I ought to tell you, just in case you're wondering why or from where all the new fanfics pop up. Heh, again, it is the result of the past months' work.News and a curious fact about Switzerland9 months ago in Personal More Like This
And the curious fact I mention? Well, I was sitting in the bus today, and I read it on the passenger tv... came quite as a surprise to me as well. So, I dare anyone name us Swiss lazy. In the year 2013, the entire of Switzerland has worked 2 MILLION EXTRA HOURS! That means 47 hours for every working Person in one year. Which places us near the top among the European countries, fourth, third or second. Plus, with the average of 41 hours a week, we rank as the Country with the third-longest working day in Europe, behind Britain and Iceland.
Isn't that impressive?
So, see ya around guys and hope you'll like my stories!
pokemon hopes and thoughtsdoes game freak have even more surprises in store for pokemon fans?pokemon hopes and thoughts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I only say this because the three kanto starters all get mega evolutions and the player will be able to pick one of the three during their journey, but blazikin is getting a special distribution date and was seen in the new pokemon xy anime teaser. why is that?
Also game freak shocked a lot of old fans by not only bringing attention back to mewtwo, older generation pokemon via mega evolutions, and the announcement of pokemon the origin. Showing game freak is very much aware of their fans and what some have been asking for and yet they still refuse to make a gen three remake.
but is the emphasis on blazikin in both the games and anime some hint that maybe old characters like May and her blaziken may be returning like she did once before? (since we still don't know exactly where this new region is located) or maybe this could be hinting that they do wish to please their fans with a third gen remake that they didn't want
I Miss the MiseryEver wake from a nightmare, or maybe even a day dream, that felt so real that the second you find out it was all in your head, you can't help but bite your tongue at the words, "But it did happen," or maybe even you have to stop a moment and think, "Did that really happen, or did I dream it?" I get this sensation constantly and a large amount of the time I find myself wondering what's real and what I made up in my head. If it weren't for the fact that I know I'm completely sane of mind, I would probably be constantly persuading myself that I am, indeed, completely and utterly out of my mind insane. But my life isn't interesting enough to allow me to go that far.I Miss the Misery3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Another thing I'm compelled to question is.. Have you ever watched someone walk out of your life, completely turn their back on you and vanish into thin air? With time, of course, you build your life back up. You start over, you take a deep breath, and you whisper within your heart, "They don't matter anymore. For

Because usually when I enter in a raffle I NEVER win, and … I won the last 2 raffles I entered in, so wow lucky ( yay!!!), so celebration and feature
First the one who made the raffle, normal . I'm cartesian enough to know there is no need to thank since it's pure chance, nothing but pure luck, but I love this art so it's a pleasure to feature it
and after I want to feature my last watchers and all time friends (I hope I won't forget anyone... I'm easily distracted... if I do please don't hate me, it's just me and my head in clouds...)
I'm always amazed by what are doing my watchers and of course I feel really honored to be watched by so talented artists. I think it often but never express it. So now I do it (and do it loud )

3)Answer the 10 questions asked by the person who tagged you and make up 10 questions for people you tag
4)Choose 10 people and put 10 icons in their journal... (Wait what?? How am I suppose to put coins into a person's journal?? & second, what if the person doesn't have coins or doesn't want to give cuz they are saving up to commission other people to do work for them?????????????? You guys can ignore that if you want to.))
5)Not something like, "You are tagged if you read that". (This rule makes no sense...Somebody explain this for me please?)
6)You have to legitimately tag 10 people.
8)You can't say that you don't do tags. (Well I'm the boss of this tag now, so I say ignore this rule

8th Feature of 2014Hello World,8th Feature of 20148 months ago in Personal More Like This
It's about this time of month again. Feature time, sharing is caring time. Since I got a lot of things going on from September on I think it's best to get my stuff in order on Sunday. For the last few weeks it worked really well to schedule my blog posts to be released during the week. It has the advantage that I don't need to be in front of my PC every day and every night and still have a certain routine with my publications.
The art projects are a bit on standby, we had a really crappy Summer with loads of rain so my Portrait Project didn't continue. Although I do have the revised version of my poetry collection at home it still needs some touching up and then a 2nd order from blurb.
As always only a few images from my favorite folder has been included here. A few others on my blog.
