Lyrics (for those who can't understand what I'm saying):
Time is gonna take my mind
and carry it far away where I can fly
The depth of life will dim my temptation to live for you
If I were to be alone silence would rock my tears
'cause it's all about love and I know better
How life is a waving feather
So I put my arms around you around you
And I know that I'll be leaving soon
My eyes are on you, they're on you And you see that I can't stop shaking
No, I won't step back
But I'll look down to hide from your eyes
'Cause what I feel is so sweet
And I'm scared that even my own breath
Could burst as if it were a bu

Tips & tricks for better arting Decided to edit and update this for my new watchers, hopefully this will inspire you guys somewhat <3Tips & tricks for better arting3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is something I've wanted to do for a while... just a compilation of everything I've learned in the past year that I've been arting. Dunno if it'll help anyone else, but here's some organized rambling for you.
Finding Inspiration and Resources
This is a huge thing that so many artists struggle with. Inspiration comes and goes all the time and it can be so frustrating when you feel like you have all these ideas in your head, but you can't get them out. It may be because you don't think you're a good enough artist to pull your vision out of your mind and share it with everyone else. Or maybe you're just so stressed by life things that you've artblocked yourself. If you're feeling down about your artistic ability, keep in mind that everyone starts somewhere. YOU CAN'T GIVE UP! I remember a while back, I was doing some studying on Terryl Whitlatch's
Macabre OC ContestAfter some debating, I have results!Macabre OC Contest2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
First Place: $30 USD or the equivalent in dA points
Awarded because it is incredibly, incredibly creepy to look at... I actually can't look at the picture for more than a couple of seconds before I always want to navigate away.
Second Place: $20 USD or the equivalent in dA points
The design of this creature is so cool, while also being really appealing to look at! I like that he lacks legs.
Third Place: $10 USD or the equivalent in dA points
This is super eerie and interesting to look at at the same time, one of the few that lacked a definitive human form. Worm-like creatures are always very interesting.
Some special mentions, other entries I debated against these that I also adored (they will be given a $5 or 400 DA Point honorary prize):
There were a lot of very good entries, and a wide range of macabre subjects!

Got dragon characters? Read on...Hello all!Got dragon characters? Read on...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Recently I've been in a dragon mood and I really want to draw some epic looking dragons (I LOVE featherd dragons and I also love complicated dragon designs!), only problem is, I fail to do so unless I am drawing someone's character. Now, I do alot of free art for people and it's all for practice purposes, but that's not a bad thing because when it comes to practicing I will try my very best.
ANTHROS ARE NOW ACCEPTED!
So, without further ado, I'm asking, you, my watchers, visitors, friends, etc... if you have ANY dragon characters which you would want me to draw, this is not a special request but it is, in some cases, a request. Now I might say my requests arn't my best, but trust me when it comes to these kinds of requests I try my very hardest because I WANT to improve in said aspects.
TO EVERYONE I ALREADY OWE ART TO, YOU CAN STILL LINK ME TO YOUR DRAGON!
Link them to me in the comments and I'll have a look!

About leaving dAYou know what I'm wondering about?About leaving dA2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Lately I see a lot of people leaving Scratch that, I see people "leave dA" all the time.
And then they say they are gonna move to FurAffinity/Anipan/Nabyn/ whatever the heck else there is. Because dA isn't fun, there's too much drama, they hate the people, their art doesn't get enough attention, they miss "the old dA".
- if everyone is going to move onto other sites like that, doesn't that mean that sooner or later the very same drama will come back on another site somehow? Most of the people that left or want to leave have contributed to some kind of drama at some point. Running away isn't going to help.
- dA isn't fun? Possibly, but I've seen other people come back to dA because on other sites, there isn't just that much to look at/to do. dA has way more users (thus more activity) than most sites, so you might get bored on other sites more often (which is why I'm inactive on FurAffinity).
Besides, lots of the people who are leaving are also peop

When I joined deviantART I drew only canines and I found myself from place where every artists drew mostly canines (and almost all of them were from Finland) and everyone knew each others and everything. Yeah, it's very nice to know many people and no one didn't need to be alone because there were at least one or two persons who kept commenting and faving works from these "canine artist" who weren't very well-known.
But the thing that really pisses me off is that everyone keeps fucking complaining about everything. It fucking pisses me off.
You can't do anything without the fact that there is always someone who is like "OMG THAT'S SO DUMB DID YOU KNOW THAT'S WRONG??? U R SO STUPID OH MY GOD. I NEED TO WRITE A JOURNAL ABOUT THIS AND COMPLAIN HOW THIS PLACE IS FULL OF THESE KIND OF IDIOTS OMFG"

You're Not Just a WriterYou're not just a writer. You may know it or you may not, but you're also a psychologist, a sociologist, and an anthropologist. Good writing captures humanity on a page and resonates with the reader, whether you want to fill their head with sad truths until they cry them out, or play with a reader's expectations until you've tickled their brains so hard their stomachs can feel it and they burst out laughing.You're Not Just a Writer2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Studying these things is awesome whether you want to make a profound statement about humanity, or just entertain people (or both at the same time). They can up your arsenal in your idea-pool to draw from, too. What makes a comedian funny is making witty observations that ring true to life--the audience won't find a joke funny if they can't relate to the situation in it.
I'm not saying you should necessarily go to college for these fields and study them really in depth. Knowing the names for each different type of brain cell isn't really what I'm talking about.
What makes writing go
People careWanna kill yourself? Imagine this.People care2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You come home from school one day. You've had yet another horrible day. You're just ready to give up. So you go to your room, close the door, and take out that suicide note you've written and rewritten over and over and over You take out those razor blades, and cut for the very last time. You grab that bottle of pills and take them all. Laying down, holding the letter to your chest, you close your eyes for the very last time.
A few hours later, your little brother knocks on your door to come tell you dinners ready. You don't answer, so he walks in. All he sees is you laying on your bed, so he thinks you're asleep. He tells your mom this. Your mom goes to your room to wake you up. She notices something is odd. She grabs the paper in your hand and reads it. Sobbing, she tries to wake you up. She's screaming your name. Your brother, so confused, runs to go tell Dad that "Mommy is crying and sissy won't wake up."
