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

You probably know this situation: You need to do serious stuff, work on very important things, or simply get your shit done. Then you turn on the scourge for mankind a.k.a the Internet because you're a master of procrastination and want to look up something. Just for a moment.
After reading a Wikipedia article about sharks, two hours later you end up with a site about how to build bombs. Or watching cute animal videos. Most likely both.
With me, it were neither sneezing pandas nor bombs but Disney songs on Youtube. From time to time i just feel the urge to cherish some good old childhood nostalgia again and what would be better for that than watching openings of the old tv-shows you loved or the ever popular songs from Disney, Dreamworks and friends? Disney songs in particular are perfect for that.
After a while and because i mostly see the links on the right, i continue with Disney songs sung in other languages fo

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."

Ananta Enlille is a golden naga from Ancient Sumer. Once while experiment he moved himself from Earth to the flat world Paradigm. There he met a young necromancer Vann`Kogn, who later became his best friend.
Vann`Kogn is a ventral-healer from Paradigm. She was pursuited for her heretical ideas, thirst for knowledge and natural curiosity. Being an excellent doctor, she with cynicism can heal a wounded creature in order to test a new paralytic poison. She is not bloodthirsty at all, she just don`t stand upon ceremony with those who stand on her way.
Their relationship is not easy, so we`d like to see it in your artworks.
There are three topics.
1. The confrontation between two characters. You draw a fight or a pursuit.
2. Creation. Later Vann'Kogn realized that their passions are similar, that a snak

foreign words are still wordsA distant relative reached out to me today through email. He is someone I've only ever met once or twice and have hardly spoken to, but after the 4th, I guess, he decided to connect with me; after I sat in my usual silence for an entire dinner and, when questioned on my summer plans, explained in over-sized words that I was staying home to be moody and to brood and to contemplate the reality of living and to write poetry on every available piece of paper and, occasionally, sleep. I guess it caught his interest.foreign words are still words3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So he wrote me a letter; a long, descriptive, heart-felt letter explaining how close he felt to me because of our similar temperaments. This is coming from someone who is the funniest, most spirited person I've met, and he is saying that it's just a cover, just a facade to cope with people and thoughts and memories, and he's actually a shy, quiet, contemplative person inside.

Devious Journal EntryJust a little note...Devious Journal Entry2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When you see an artist you like and you are trying to figure his work out... the question that gets asked a lot is" How did you do it?"
What software did you use to make this effect?
What is your technique?
These are questions that won't get you anywhere. It's like asking for the fish.
A question you should probably ask is WHY did you do this?.. WHAT were you thinking?
When you ask this question, you are thinking about the principles of fishing, and not just about catching A fish.
If you wonder why, then you won't be stuck with the HOW.. you will most probably create your own "HOW", your own method of putting your WHY into existence..and this is what will really make you unique.
Once again.. this is just my take on things.

Tips and tricks for better arting Decided to edit and update this for my new watchers, hopefully this will inspire you guys somewhat <3Tips and tricks for better arting4 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

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 Writer3 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.

There's too many times I've reported stolen art which belongs to her.
And every time she posted a journal saying that something has been stolen again, I've felt angry 'cause of these morons.
But that's not the main reason I'm writing this. It's just a little part of this huge mess going on in her life now.

The design of this creature is so cool, while also being really appealing to look at! I like that he lacks legs.

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.
