Staring at the blank wall?
Staring at the paper with a pencil in hand?
Staring at the ceiling(hoping for a ninja)?
Staring at the corner(hoping for Pedobear)?
All of the above are random.
Simply don't know WHAT TO DRAW?
Well, I've been hearing(or maybe 'reading' is a better term) a lot of excuses and one of them being 'art block' for not knowing what to draw. Read on and maybe you can find some way to know what to draw. c:
If you don't know what to draw, maybe you're having a lack of inspiration. Try brainstorming if you're feeling your creative juices are flowing. If you think they froze, maybe you should try watching a good movie that's your cup of tea. Watching anime, western movies, eastern movies(like Chinese/Korean dramas), reading a good ol' book, manga or maybe a portrait shall suffice for lack of inspiration.

Contest! Girl with a FlowerGirl with a Flower ContestContest! Girl with a Flower4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I haven't hosted a contest in a long time, so I figured I would host a little contest since I have some points.
The objective is simple. Draw a girl with a flower! It can be one flower or it can be many. It can just be a simple flower in the hair, a flower incorporated into her jewelry, a flowery pattern on clothing, a flower tattoo design, a flowery background, or she can simply just be holding a flower. It's up to you. Let's just see what beautiful art you can make with this idea. Here are some great examples by some amazing artists- http://gabbyd70.deviantart.com/favourites/46685415

(Please read all these rules, if you still have questions, leave a comment )
You may make a drawing or painting and it may be made either traditionally, digitally, or a mix of both. It can be one flower or it

On the new line art layer, click four points in a rought squared egg shape like below in the large red square. Use the curve tool to make this shape. The curve tool is marked in a little red box to the left of the image below.

Texas Abortion Bill FilibusterIn case you live outside the USA and haven't heard of this yet, Texas was preparing to vote on a radical bill that would effectively outlaw abortions within their boarders. Senator Wendy Davis came in early in the morning with the expressed intent of filibustering: The goal being to delay the critical vote.Texas Abortion Bill Filibuster2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Wendy Davis talked for 11 hours straight. No food. No drinks. No bathroom breaks. She couldn't even pause for a moment to take a sip of water or else she'd give up the floor and the vote could get underway. 11 hours straight she talked and just before the midnight cutoff she was interrupted, and the vote began... only to become absolute pandemonium as the crowd watching protested the interruption.
The GOP insists that the vote carried and passed, while the Democrats insist that they were still taking votes after the midnight cutoff thanks to the chaos that ensued. This is going to be one of those instances where the GOP are gonna try to lie and shove their way through our diplomatic
Contest!HELLO ONE AND ALL!Contest!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is going to be the first contest since Aimee has stepped down and we've finally got our feet on the ground...just in time for school. (Yaaaaay!) School means essays, obligatory journal writing, quickwrites, and stupid prompts. Gotta love it.
I'm sure everyone is familiar with the Song Contest thing. I've been wanting to do it for a long time on my own, but nobody would ever participate in my personal contests, so the ideas I've had are now going to be recycled on you! I absolutely love music. I grew up listening to rock and alternative, played the saxophone, wrote music myself, and have a very musical family to help support and nurture this growing desire to be musical. I suppose it's why I love poetry.
Now that the interlude is said and done, I'll get onto the details of this contest. You can either: pick a fitting song and write a story (NOT A POEM) using the song as a topic OR write song lyrics to fit with an instrumental.

There's Something I'd Like to Say...*Pardon me. I'm just fed up here*There's Something I'd Like to Say...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Lately, I've been receiving several hate comments regarding my PPGxRRB works. The people who've commented have been
saying stuff like, "PPGXRRB IS STUPID!" "THEY HATE EACH OTHER, NOT LOVE EACH OTHER!" and "THIS PAIRING WILL NEVER
HAPPEN YOU KNOW!!!"
THESE comments are the only defense I've seen when I've asked people why they don't ship the PPG and RRB together.
The most common one is "THE RRB ARE EVIL!! YOU'RE DUMB FOR LIKING THESE PAIRINGS!!!"
...Here's what I have to say about that argument. IT IS INVALID BECAUSE THE BOYS. ARE. FIVE!
Seriously, Anti-PPGxRRB shippers claim that the boys are evil and will always stay that way. They don't act like
the boys will grow up. They act like they'll stay the same way. They act like the boys will never develop hormones.
It's rare when I find someone who has a decent reason why they don't like them together.
Don't you think that the boys would AT LEAST

While my Guitar Gently WeepsI'm sure many of you already know this but for those who don't, late August 23, Jerry Nelson [Floyd Pepper, Count Von Count, Gobo Fraggle and so on] passed away. Jerry was one of the greats, in my [and I'm sure many] opinion, he was the voice of the Muppets, whenever someone talks of a beautiful song, it's normally sung by him. Makes sense since he said once if it wasn't for Jim giving him a job, he would of become a Folk singer [by the way, his CD is really nice, a mix of silly and beauty.]While my Guitar Gently Weeps3 years ago in Personal More Like This
At first when I found out I was stunned, but after a little time, it's ok, Jerry has raised many of us to love music, to count, to adventure, and to laugh. Now, he has gone to the Rainbow Connection, he will be preforming once more with Richard Hunt. He will see old friends, and lost loved ones. Jerry lived a long life, leaving us plenty to remember, so this is why I feel, while tears are inevitable, that we should celebrate, as we did with Jim, and as we did with Richard, we should grab our instru

New PPGsAlright, so I watched this thing and it's... well... disappointing. Honestly, the one thing that annoyed me the most, is that they gave Bubbles ice breath. Like come on, how stupid is that!? They specifically said it was only Blossom with that power... ugh.New PPGs1 year ago in Personal More Like This
And another thing. That 'tantrum' scene... you've got to be kidding me. that was so out of character. way to make the ppgs look like snot nosed brats.
They also seemed a lot weaker. and there was a lot of unnecessary shit added in there. The storyline was really messy. It took a while to get to the point and even then it wasn't very captivating. The style was not bad (I hate the ugly bangs they gave the PPGS) but everything was very stiff. (And their shoes sucked) They really made the girls much more immature then they were, and the whole re-design of their house was strange. It all seemed pretty dumbed down in my opinion. but I guess nothing will beat the original. at least it wasn't destroyed like PPGZ.

Critical Assessment and Aftermath of Art SchoolCritical Assessment and Aftermath of Art School3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is an updated account on how things are going years after having left art school, the effects it's had on me, and my personal thoughts on attending. My views here aren't wholly different than the few rants I've had on the subject in the past, but it's one I believe I have to continue talking about to assist others in making the right decisions for themselves and their future path. (I should also mention that this is the viewpoint of an american in America.)
It's become increasingly clear to me over the last year that out of my 25 years on this Earth, there's only one decision I ever truly regret: and that was going to art school. Now, there's a good chance that I may not be saying this had I attended a different school, but there's no way to ever know, so what I'm really saying is "I regret going to the school I chose, not school in general." I feel as though I was let down by my school. I held up my end of the bargain (some $80~$90
...I'm Sorry...Not sure if anyone noticed but, I've been a little inactive for the past few days.......I'm Sorry...10 months ago in Personal More Like This
The reason your brain may wonder "What? Why da fuck have you been inactive Symmetry? You little Canadian shit, ya shrimp dick fuck nugget. Now tell me, before I eat all your Nutella!" First off, calm your little brain cells, seriously....damn.
Anyway, the reason for my inactivity is because school is starting up soon. Like, real soon. Like, Tuesday soon. It'll be my first year of Highschool. And. I. am. hella. NERVOUS!
I'm not ready for this type of torture! Okay, maybe I'm over reacting just a little bit. But honestly, I'm nervous and scared. The Highschool is HUGE! I'm talking about 3 floor's huge with 2 gymnasiums. I'm sure I've mentioned this before, but I'm only 4'9" in height and the students that go there are tall.
Imagine this, Levi is walking through the Forest of Giant Trees and suddenly, he hears one of those horrid titan screams

Każdy lubi być chyba przez kogoś narysowany. W końcu wie, że ktoś się postara i będzie to ogólnie miłe. No właśnie, trzeba na to poświęcić czas, ja też muszę swój pseudocenny skrawek dnia oddać na "rysowanie".
Mówicie, że jestem taka zła i w ogóle, bo odmawiam rysowania, gdy ktoś napisze "ej , weś mi narysój tego konia co tylko , do jutra . xddd" (tekst skopiowany z wiadomości )) ).
