Thank you all those who sent the notes to participate! ;w; I'm really stunned by the number of notes that I got (actually, I was more shocked lol) - it's really great to have these many people having interest in participating in some random project of mine I hope you can enjoy this , and hopefully there can be an art book!
If you haven't received any reply from me if your note was sent before the apps were paused do tell me.
Please be noted, that any applications that were noted to me after the journal clearly said it was "on hold" were ignored... I was a little disappointed to see how many people didn't read or ignored the status that I clearly wrote at the head of this journal. It's really nice to see many people being interested in participating (I really am), but it's hard to trust someone who can't follow what's been asked If you're one of the people who sent it during this "on hold" period, please be noted that you have to re-send the apps again.

I've been encouraging my friends and younger schoolmates to get back drawing. It was HARD!! Really hard to get someone to get back to what they've stopped doing. I know they liked drawing and I saw talent within them, that's why I kept telling them to have fun with it.
AND THEN, someone had to ruin it with "Why are your line arts so messy?" "I don't like this, I don't like that" "The anatomy is too awkward" "What's wrong with his eyes" blah blah.
It discouraged them.
Okay, you may draw better than them, but that doesn't mean you can comment on the arts you don't like. Many times it can hurt the artists specially the beginners who had no courage in doing art. They might just stop it because they don't want to receive comments like that.
You don't like the art? Just close the browser. Seriously, th

It was a bright sunny day in the heart of Equestria. The ponies of Ponyville were out and about at their every day duties and activities. Inside Sugarcube Corner, the workers were busy creating the finest baked goods in the village. The pony named Cup Cake was walking through the shop checking on all her employees.
"These treats are looking good everypony. Keep up the good work!" she encouraged them. But nearby, some ponies were having issues.
One pony was busy making a delectable little cupcake on her worktable when she ran out of icing in her tube. She turned around to reach for a new one and then turned back only to find her cupcake gone.
"What the ? Hey, Pinkie Pie!!" she said turning to the adorable pink pony with icing and cake mix smeared all over her face.
"Oops ..were you working on that?" she asked.
"Um, yeah I was! Now I gotta start all over again, thanks!" said Pinkie's co-worker
Why it's important to put a disclaimer in art descEDIT: HI Please don't reply to the original comment unless you have serious inquiries. And if you do be mindful to be polite! U v U But this is specific to their case (though if it happens once it has to happen more than once) so I find value in warning others. DA does take the images down when reported most of the time without the disclaimer but it really can't hurt and it gives them less excuses to not carry through with your report. Thank you!Why it's important to put a disclaimer in art desc2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Wow, so up till today I always found the "Please don't trace, redistribute, copy etc" was unnecessary in a lot of comments since people are going to do what they're going to do no matter what right? But wow lo and behold I found this comment in the disqus section of Artist Confessions. Basically what it's saying is due to DA's rules if the artist doesn't say to not trace then they cannot penalize reported tracers. At least that's what I'm drawing from

It's been in the talks since December but communication was cut off during the University's mid-year break and I thought they changed their minds about me, but they contacted me again past Saturday to let me know that the semester has begun and provided me with the schedule for my classes.
Successful people often say "Do what you love and it'll take you places"
I always believed in that and this is a living proof.
I was excited from the moment they told me, and for those who know me, know that the feeling of excitement is nearly non-existent in me. I had two fairs, I booked a booth at MEFCC, I was a finalist in an international contest, I had an interview on TV and a magazine, etc. But I was never excited or ever felt really accomplished.
But I am about this. Thank God.
