I have learned that fear is a device of our own creation. I often watch myself and others in situations where fear is turned into rage, pain, and depression. The communication breaks down and often a fight will rage that never end because the real issue isn't being addressed. I have noticed more and more how fear manipulates our lives in negative ways. It prevents progress, undermines positivity, and ruins our self esteem. We shouldn't ever fear the things that may happen, did happen, or are happening. Instead, I have learned that we should fear only fear itself and those who sew it.
For those who sew fear and negativity cannot help us or themselves. It is easy to be dragged down by them and the insecurity that surrounds us all. This is why we must surround ourselves with people who love and care for us. They are the ones who will bring us up no matter how horrible it may be. It is the people who never make a effort to change that we must avoid. They will never truly love or a

In need one sees who his friend is?..You always have people around you that would support you when you are in trouble or face problems. As long as you have nothing in your life to be envied for, as long as there are themes to rant about together - you have friends! But then you become a happier man, good things happen for you - you actually WORK to get them or maybe they come as your fate decides - doesn't matter really. Once it happens - oh, even at the very fleeting mentions of these positive changes you start getting wakeners from these very people you considered close ones.

Real friends are tried not by need but by happiness. True friend will be sincerely glad for you when everything is Good or gets better.
But when you are in grief - anyone who doesn't have a stone in their chest instead of heart will be able to console you.

Yet we all do it. Either aware or unaware.
It all starts when we see an artist here whose work we like a lot.
Most of us have been there. Seeing the work of an artists that hits a soft spot in you, for whatever reason that might be.
You admire it, but at the same time you feel sad because you realize your level is still miles away from this artist, and you will probably never be able to do the same.
But despite everything, you start following this person. And you keep following him.
Because somewhere deep in your soul, you hold the believe --or rather, hope-- that when you watch it long enough, it will reveal it's tricks.
That it will inspire you in some way. And that you'll be able to do the same.
Unconsciously, we all build images of our idol.
It's human nature, I guess. We fill in all the blanks. The things that we don't know from this person.
Because an idol isn't a person anymore at that point. It has become an ico
Why artists get so pissed off --"Why do you artists always get so pissed off when someone uses your artwork? You should take it as a compliment!"Why artists get so pissed off --5 months ago in Personal More Like This
"You should take it as a Compliment --"
A compliment would be admiring an artist's work where they post it, and if you really want to use it that badly, complimenting them would be you having enough respect for them to ask first.
Most of us don't get mad because you use it, it's because you use it without asking or pretend you didn't know who/where it came from when there's a link to where you can find the original artist on the image.
Taking someone's car to crash it in a derby isn't a compliment to them any more than taking someone's art to wreck it or claim it is a compliment. More so without asking.

so i keep getting the same questions over and over again. how did i learn to do this.
i was self taught. by this i mean, i took the initiative and seeked out the knowledge, as no one was offering it.
i draw on average 8 to 10 hours a day, every day. by average i mean that some days its 6 and some 12
so... the argument.
i keep hearing this one. well i want to be a professional artist, but life is hard, i need to work, i don't really have the time....
let me put things in perspective here.
i used to work as a night guard on the beach. every single night from 8 pm to s6 am. after that i would go meet up with my dad who gouarded another beach to get a cup of coffee. we had a bite to eat, and then both went to haul and sell fruits and vegetables.
every evening i was drawing. when the sun set i sat under a street lamp and drew through the night.
every night. this was on occasion interrupted by a fight with some exceedingly drunk people who wouldn't

10 Things Wrong with the Human Race
1) We have a groups of people who hate people and want to see them out of the planet. (KKK, Al Qaeda, Nazi's etc)
2) We have allot of males who only want to have sex.
3) We have allot of females who think they are changing the world but in reality, they're just putting wood on the fire of hatred.
4) Whenever someone say's they are an Atheist, they're always those few Christians who threatens the person by saying "You are going to hell"
5) We criticize pornstars for what they do but people like Kim Kardashian gets a reality TV show. How did Kim become famous again? Oh yeah, she made a sex tape with some rapper.
6) If someone says they're gay, they get beaten up by a group of bigots
7) One of those bigots ALMOST became the president of the United States.

I saw ANOTHER thing on the side bar, so I clicked again.
Things got even more bizarre.

Why artists care when you copy their designThis goes to the people who say 'I only referenced it' or 'the design inspired me' as well.Why artists care when you copy their design2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've seen many, many issues about this recently, and wanted to tell people why it bothers artists so much. Of course it differs for everyone, but I'm going to mention some pretty universal points here.
Reason 1) When an artist spends hours on their design, making sure every single colour and marking is perfected, and someone just rips it off and reproduces all your hard work in 10 minutes... its a bit of a kick in the ass. Its just unfair.
Reason 2) Us artists tend to get very attached to out characters, especially furry artists and their fursonas. A fursona is a representation of ones self as an animal, and when someone copies/references from the design, it drives us nuts. You are not the same person as us, stop trying to make your fursona the same as ours because your fursona is meant to be YOU, NOT your idol.
Reason 3) We artists get paid for our designs sometimes by other people, and the des

First of all, I won't differentiate between "precious"* and "semi-precious" gemstones in this article. Here's why: The term "semi-precious gemstone" is an old and rather unscientific term. The terms "precious" and "semi-precious" can be very misleading, as they imply certain stones are more valuable than others, even when that's not the case. The distinction between the two terms was used to reflect a gem's rarity, quality and "beauty", and because there's simply no sure, objective way to tell which gems are "precious" and which aren't, you won't find them in this article.
So, I will simply talk of "gems" or "gemstones", or, if I'm feeling like this article needs some word diversity/really lazy, simply "stones".
*most commonly: diamond, ruby, sapphire and emerald
