Pacing art slower- health and school :pIt's about time I do.Pacing art slower- health and school :p2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been mulling over this for a while and I really need a 'break' of sorts.
I really can't stand both physically and mentally to continue working at the pace I do, so I've been meaning to relax a bit more.
It's a lot of things but I really don't want to rant! :/
I just need to pace things slower, but I promise I'll get everything done! ^-^
Main issues are my lower back and school plus extracurricular activities. Mainly my back :/
So I won't lie, this'll take a few months I'm guessing to really get back in shape, sorry guys~!
But ah, for real this time, I think you all might've noticed the decrease in submissions as well as Saturday breaks. This will continue for a while!
Hey guys! I was thinking of making... How-to'sI frequently get asked for advice or 'how to' do things like start commissions, or a new account/pseudonym, or even art tutorials?Hey guys! I was thinking of making... How-to's2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Haha as for the art I'll hold that off for two main reasons,
1. I Just don't feel I'm up to the right caliber, if you will, to teach anything about shading and all that x3
2. Exactly the point above, I wouldn't want to give bad tips where there could be better; I still really don't like the way I shade for the most part!
There's only one thing I feel like I can do well out of everything else, and it has got to be designing haha :D
And since I'm not sure if I have time for a tutorial, as requested among the course of the last year haha x___X I might do those skype/livestream class sessions again? I've been getting quite a few requests for them.. I was thinking of just like a group call or livestream for an hour or so, for $3 per lesson/tutorial thing?
I'll give details on that later on if there's real interest, because it'll probably be easier

Life is Beautiful...Isn't it?Life is Beautiful...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are magical moments in life where I get the opportunity to remember that I'm nothing but an insignificant living being among 8 billion others.. on a planet among 8 in a solar system among billions in a galaxy among trillions and all in one universe-- possibly among others?-- where whether or not I died, would hardly leave a mark even in the face of my own city.
The world goes on without you.
Yet I once realized, that a meaning in life, is to give life a meaning.
Live your dreams! You only live once.
Don't do idiotic dares for the sake of saying you did them-- go tell that cute boy or girl you like them!
Go tell the world your name!
Why must everything be over after one failure..?
Sure, the humiliation of having everyone look down upon you is torture itself... but when you get back up and show everyone that you're somebody, it won't be you who'd be ashamed for not realizing your potential sooner-- but them!

Rude people, spamming and more.Okay, not to sound rude or anything, BUT I've realized that dA is more or less only "ruled" by teenagers from 12-15. Not saying that it's bad, it's fun to know so many young artists, but it really sucks too.Rude people, spamming and more.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
DA gets spammed with thousands of deviations every day and comments, the art community is really (too) big.
Lately, I've not really enjoyed dA anymore. It's getting on my nerves.
Also about commissions. Nearly no-one wants to pay anything for commissions, most people would say art is worth 0.50c or something. What most people here haven't realized, some people work very hard on pictures and spend hours on them and they just cannot offer free art. Also, many people life off of their art. That's the reason why more and more good artists are leaving dA or getting very inactive and move onto other art sites like Fur Affinity, because it's just less spammy and people are more mature there and ready to pay for art what it's WORTH.
Also, I've noticed how rude and incompetent some moderato
