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 AMV1 year 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

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 art4 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This

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 Story4 months 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

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

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

But maybe one day, if we badger enough producers, it will be a reality

You are an amazing artist and one of my best friends on Da. You were one of the first people I talked to when I joined Da, back then you were an inspiration but now you help me continue to draw. Your drawings are always beautiful and they each have something special in them thats stands out from the rest. I hope you continue to do what you're doing and remember, if your feeling sad or hurt inside you can always talk. <3
There's a very special deviant everyone should know. HiddenLeafDragon is a good friend of mine, always has been and always will be. He's really funny, very sweet, and super nice He's one of those rare cool people with great skill and talent, and I think everyone should check out his page, because he's really worth the time.

This took place a few months back.
So, one evening I was sitting with my friends talking on skype. We were doing our usual bad impressions and character chat until about ten o'clock or so. I shut down the computer I was on and moved to my phone where me and my two other friends could talk more freely.
We were going on about one of my comics clear into the dead of the night. Everyone in my house was asleep and I was quietly trying to procrastinate my sleep because the conversation had gotten interesting. For the life of me I can't remember what part of the comic we were talking about at the time but it was fun nonetheless.
As it neared one the call had gotten progressivly quieter, this was mainly because I didn't to wake anyone. My friend had been sharing his idea for a character when I heard a faint voice. It was a female, very broken up

We've all read them, the poorly written "He shoved his 15 inch dick into her tight pussy" sort of lemons/smut/nsfw writing. What gives me any right to speak about sex? Let's just say, I've gotten some in life experience to help me out with my writing. You can't use porn necessarily as a good reference because trust me, when you have sex for a living you acquire more skill then the average person. Sex and porn are two completely separate fields.
First things first, blatant heterosexual sex facts:
It's sweaty, there are noises of skin on skin contact, and it's almost always a little awkward.There is little to no kissing if there aren't romantic feeling between you and your partner.Sorry to burst your bubble, but most dirty talk happens before or during foreplay, not during the actual intercourse.Depending on how fast/sloppy he's going, it'll probably fall out a few times, just

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
