You are AMAZING.I've seen a LOT of my younger / less experienced artist buddies posting journals, asking people if they like them or their art.You are AMAZING.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
All I want to say is;
YOU AND YOUR ART ARE AMAZING.
It doesnt matter what people say!
My art was ugly as crap when I was 13. Thats how I saw it, I saw it as disgusting. Then I would get one or two watcher messages and feel great. THEN I would look around at the other artists on DA, and I would go back to thinking my art was stupid. i would copy things from other people's styles, trying so hard to get my style to look nice, to make it something people loved.
I was trying to be a people-pleaser.
But you know what?
I dont have to be a people pleaser.
I can make my art however I want to make it, and I know it is amazing. You know why?
Because nobody in the universe has a style like mine. Or yours, or any body elses.
Draw because you love it.
Draw because you love your art.
Even if you dont love it right now, you will someday. You WILL get better as time goes on. A

R.I.P. Richard*sigh*R.I.P. Richard1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Well folks, we all lose a special loved one in our life at least once.
I just lost my 3rd loved one.
Me beloved, faithful friend Richard. He was great. A true friend.
First let me tell you a little bit about my beloved Richard before I describe how he was killed.
Richard was given to me on my birthday. I must say, he was the best birthday present ever!
A Compaq PC with exceptional graphics drivers. And a wacom Intous4 Tablet, what more could I ask for?
Richard faithfully ran every project, homework assignment, game, drawing, and anything else I wanted him to do.
He never crashed once.
Who killed him, you may ask? Or what?
Yes, my freinds, Richard contracted the DA Trojan Backdoor virus. He got it so bad, in fact, I had to restart him 5 times just to get him to work.
After I successfully booted him up in Safe Mode (which lets you have internet, but no sound or special apps, just classic Windows) i ran my Norton Internet security.

First StepsHey,First Steps2 years ago in Personal More Like This
well, I don't know if anyone's reading this, but I'm pretty bored anyway.
I finally decided to get serious about photography,
got myself a new camera (Canon PowerShot SX10 SI),
and I got a few inspirations and ideas.
Now I'm on an adventure all around my local stores, looking for a few props and a model for my first photograph.
The past few days haunted me with migranes and other situations that I don't really appreciate,
but I'm sure that everything will be better eventually,
so I'm gonna try to finish this first photo as a first step.
Hope everyone had a better week than I did,
and have a wonderful weekend.
List of popular anime pet peeves"Why don't you watch anime anymore?" they ask me.List of popular anime pet peeves6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Answer is simple, it seems I have lost interest for such thing because it was a complete waste of time. Or, it could be the excessive pet peeves I found.
Have anymore suggestions? Help complete this list!
*The stupid one is the strongest
*A bishounen guy that every girl wants
*The whiny, annoying, and overall, mean or otherwise stupid, heroine of a typical shoujo manga.
*fanservice, which I find completely unnecessary
*the moe character that's just SO UBER CUTE .-.
*The woman with the ridiculous breast size
*The shy, damsel in distress that everybody wants to shoot with an AK rifle
*The serious guy who you can hit with a giant plank and wouldn't care

Beautiful flowers are coming up and the tulip fields are growing really fast. Hope to find some time next week to photograph some of the tulip fields. Also got a lot of new and fresh ideas so you will be spammed soon again. I've been a little inactive lately because I don't have much time at the moment, my internship takes a lot of time, have to work in the weekends and have been doing a lot of fotoshoots with horses and their owners. Also my own horse needs her attention. But now a new fresh start!
Also my premiumship expired this week. A big shame. So if anyone is willing to donate some points for a premiumship I will love you forever! Haha. Thank you in advance!

If possible, I would not like to burden her every time this group needs to be renewed and so a point donation pool has been started. The group itself cannot open a donation pool, so if you'd like to donate points, please visit :iconxblkdragonx: profile page. Every point given to her will be given back to #rochu-squad
The group's Super Group status ends somewhere in July.

Contest Time!10 months ago in Personal More Like This
About that contest!
Long ago, I wrote a journal about ideas for a contest. People noted me, and I finally decided on the theme. There will be a choice on what the theme will be. You can either A. draw a non-shimigami character as a shimigami, or B. re-design Takuto's, Meroko's, Izumi's, Jonathan's, an/or Death Master's costumes (the last two if you ever read the manga).
1. No copying another person's design. This contest is for designing, not as much drawing.
2. No photography or writing. This is wether or not you draw.
3. You don't have to draw an intricate picture. You can even just draw it as something like this.
4. Submissions must be in by August 14th, 2012. It's a bit soon, but it's summer vacation for a lot of you students We will choose a winner durin

You guys set the bar high with our last winter contest, so let's make it twice as better! This time (with many who suggested this to me) we shall be having a "Full Moon Valentines" contest. And what a perfect theme for a manga about sappy romance and following you dreams! You can either draw a couple on Valentines Day, or draw a person who will be lonely on Valentines Day (Though the idea is completely impossible.

WHAT THE HECK IS THIS, ZAP?
Guys, I have finally bred my dream team! Though they may not be perfect right up to the last detail, I think I've done as much as I can do. I don't use any hacks, cheats, or programs to mutilate my Pokemon and get what I want – I only use the Pokemon I get in game to create the team that I want. Now that the Elite is finally complete – I literally just want to give away a few of them to celebrate! Calypso has many brothers and sisters, and I have selected two sisters, who are basically exactly like her, to give out to two deviants who want one.
HOW WILL YOU PULL THIS OFF?
With a little teamwork of course. Basically when I have chosen (at random) two deviants who want one, I'll work with them like we would do for a regular trade – only I'm literally going to take whatever Pokemon you have to give in exchange for a Calypso. It can be a Parat, a Magikarp, I don't care. So long as I still have my
