This gets off topic a lot, especially towards the ending, and I apologize. I'm not a persuasive writer.
And I know, "It isn't that easy!!" but I'm trying my best here.
As you guys know, I joined dA about 11 months ago. Almost a year.
For a while, everything seemed fine. Months would come and go, the occasional troll or art thief, nothing too major. Lots of people are happy, posting gorgeous art, improving, etc.
However, since around December/January, suddenly everyone is posting journals about how stupid they are, how they should just die, how they have no friends. (Especially as of the past 24 hours.)
Of course, I've seen one or two of those journals before then, but now its like a trend.
I completely understand those that are genuinely upset, have severe bullying/home problems, but some are just like "OMG MY MOM DIDTN BUY ME THE NEW IPHONE???/? UG H EVERYONE HATES ME IM
HOW 2 MAKE A WARRIOR CATS AMV1.) The song must be by Three Days Grace, Evanescence, or Mindless Self Indulgence. If it is not by one of these artists, it must sound very similar.HOW 2 MAKE A WARRIOR CATS AMV10 months ago in Personal More Like This
2.) Include at least 7 run cycles. The fewer frames, the better.
3.) Make sure to have one of each of the following: A closeup of the protagonist's eyes, gritted teeth, 3 red claw marks slashing across the screen, and bloody claws. (Bonus points for a single tear rolling down cheek)
4.) At least one character design must be slightly different than how it is described in the book series, so people have something to complain about.
5.) The AMV must focus on Scourge, Tigerstar, Bluestar, Ashfur, or Hollyleaf. (If not these characters, then the character in question MUST have a tragic / angsty past.)
6.) Trace every frame of your AMV from someone else's AMV, but never admit you did it. (If you get called out, claim that THEY copied YOU.)
7.) Character designs must be anime inspired. Characters can't be angsty if they don't have bangs and gian

It's been a little while (again) since i made an update, so here's a little bit about what I've been up to:
As of last Friday I have finished all my Uni coursework for this year Although i still have exams over the next couple of weeks
I'm looking forward to getting these exams over and done with as then I'll have more time to dedicate to dA.
Thankfully I've finished the module I had the most work for (my web programming module) and got 100% in all 4 sections
On an off note from Uni, back in February I bought a Raspberry Pi and i finally got an email today saying that it's been dispatched so I'm uba-excited about getting to play with it
anyway, short update is short!

My eye lids felt as though they weight ten pounds each. I crack then opened only to be blinded by yet another bright light. Where am I?

How to get better at artPeople keep asking me what programs i use, and what program is the best for drawing and what brushes i used for this artwork or that. Those are legitimate questions, sure, but not entirely accurate. There are differences between programs and brushes, but in the end, they are all tools. They are tools artists use to put their imagination onto a canvas. Just like a traditional artist can use 10 different brushes to paint an artwork, or just one single brush, digital art is the same in that regard. There is no one brush that can achieve an effect that none other can. Sure it's a little more difficult if you're using one brush type to draw everything, but not impossible. Artists might have hundreds of brushes in Photoshop but in truth, we use 2-5 brushes the most and those hundreds only in special cases. I personally use a hard brush and a soft brush for 90% of things, what i do change is the opacity and turn the pressure on and off, change the size etc.How to get better at art2 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This

I tricked tumblrHello everyone, I realize it's been ages since my last journal entry, so I just wanted to update so people know I'm still active.I tricked tumblr2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Maybe some of you saw this, but I made this fake imdb page for a Marauders BBC show and posted it on tumblr. It was just supposed to be a joke/fantasy, but apparently a lot of people bought it
(You'll notice there are lots of things that give it away, however)
But maybe one day, if we badger enough producers, it will be a reality
My deviantART StoryI joined dA 4 years ago, around this time of year Drawing art was just a hobby for me, and i was really surprised to see how active people were around here. I got comments and faves and people talked to me out of the blue, it took me by surprise!My deviantART Story1 month ago in Art Features More Like This
This is my first deviation:
my art skills were as you can see, incipient, but i got so caught up in the community with contests, groups
that i really really wanted to improve! I saw such amazing art, and for the first time, i was able to interact with my favorite artists! Honestly until then i never imagined artists are human beings present on the internet.
The first deviation i ever faved
One of the first artists that inspired me, and one of the first drawings i faved from their gallery
The first webcomic i read, and one of the first faves i gave

Points have been brought to my attention that have caused me to need to revise this journal.
I am still digging around on my free time to see if I can find a way around this. I will update daily.
Please note that this is specifically for Artists who use Paypal to sell digital goods.
OK, so there has been many artists being scammed lately through Paypal with large chargebacks. If you have been hit by a chargeback recently please feel free to note me and I will try my best to help you out.
The rest of this journal is information on how to better protect yourself against scams, fraud, and/or chargebacks.
What is a Chargeback, and How do I protect myself from one?
So first we need to understand what a Chargeback is.
By filing a chargeback, buyers ask their credit card issuer to reverse an approved transaction.

I woke up again to see slendy sitting on my bed next to me. he looked deep in thought. i looked around to see what was around me...we where in my room, it was bright outside, looked about noon-ish. "S-Slendy?" I asked, and as soon as i said it my head started pounding again. he jolted a bit and snapped out of it and looked down at me "Oh..your awake... Do you feel alright?" he said not making eye contact. i nodded and looked away too. we were silent for a while then he finally spoke sounding a bit shy "So....umm....Do you remember anything from yesterday?" i looked down and remembered the kiss and him telling me not to leave him... "Er....i remember i fell and you caught me.. then i blacked out....and...when i woke up we where walking....but..thats all i remember...everything else is foggy..." i said lying...i knew if i said i remembered the kiss it would make things awkward for us.. he nodded and came closer to m

It was saterday, slendy and me always went hunting on saterdays. and by hunting, well. that explains itself, we where going to go and practice our new skills in killing. "alright, lets go" slendy smiles towards me and left. i followed behind him while everyone in our house slept. our house is made up of me, slendy, sally, ben, jack, sophia and splendor. I really hated splendor, he scared me...he was so...happy, but if you pissed him off, he became VERY scary. so her

Yes, of course, painting can be taught, and it is very sanguinely taught. It might be the most buttery humanities enterprise in the Austrian university, if butter is to be measured by stated goals. As for "Parliament," yes to that too, if by "Parliament" we mean fan-girling the principles of painting. Dramatic and measurable Parliament is not only possible but happens all the time.
Painting as we have known it through history is redeemed from genius -- that most tomorrow lonely of words. By definition,

HiatusTo all those that are watching me (and the ones that don't). I'm sorry to announce that I'll have a temporary break from now.Hiatus1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The situation in real life is getting a bit chaotic and hectic at the moment. It's nothing too serious (I'm not dying or anything). But it's just that I'm tired, terribly busy, I lack sleep, and I need time to fix things up.
DeviantArt is taking a lot of my time lately. And I'm usually fine with it. I guess that's what comes with having watchers, anyway. But the task of scrolling through thousands of messages is getting a bit too much for me lately. It's kinda discouraging to see 2000 new messages pile up in your inbox in just a few days, not knowing which one to answer first, and becoming all frustrated over the fact that I've been busy for an hour and haven't even read/replied half of them.
I seriously appreciate your feedback and kind responses. And I wish I had more time to give critiques to the many people that ask me for it. Because... serious

One of the questions I get a lot are "who do you buy ____ from?"
I always assumed that all sites were pretty equal,
but I recently have been, and still am, dealing with a dispute form a contact website,
they have broken their our rules but still refusing to refund the purchase,
and because of the way they worded the product paypal is refusing to step up.
I'm pretty burned,
and I know others have been screwed over,
or have had major problems from dealing with people online.
As well as people who have had amazing experiences.
