My Thoughts on ImprovementI get a lot of questions on how to go about improving your drawing ability. I never really know how to answer them since every artist I've met seems to grow better under different conditions. For example, my friend :icondana-t: has completed over one hundred sketchbooks in the past four years. I've completed four in the same amount of time, but our trends of improvement are (kinda) similar because we learn in different ways.My Thoughts on Improvement4 months ago in Personal More Like This
One of the reasons I never end up making a tutorial is basically because I don't think they work. Plenty of people will disagree with me on this, but that's my honest opinion. There might be a lot of opinions I type out here you'll disagree with, so keep in mind these are just my views. Here are my general thoughts on how to improve.
Stop thinking about style. Style is something you will develop gradually after you've spent years emulating other styles, talking with other artists, observing the world, and pinpointing what looks best to you. Ev
to all the people who have ever considered suicideThere is always a reason to keep fighting. I do not care how pitiful your life is, how seemingly insignificant, how painfulyou do matter. You matter to someone: perhaps it's your mother, your father, your friend. Perhaps it's someone you haven't even met yet, but that's part of the adventure, isn't it? There is always something more to come. Every human life is so incredibly and insurmountably precious. And I will not sit here and tell you that there are people who have it worse than you, because that's silly and useless. In your world, you feel alone and desperate and you feel as if nothing, nothing could ever make you feel happy or even functional again, and that is your world. You feel as if your life, your universe, everything you ever thought about yourself and the people around you is crumbling and crashing down. But I can guarantee that it will get better. I promise you. I promise.to all the people who have ever considered suicide2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Paint Tool SAI problems! -PROBLEM FIXED :D-So, recently I've been using AVG to try and fix my computer, but after a recent virus scan I tried to open up Paint Tool SAI, which caused AVG to abruptly say it was a Trojan virus. So now I can't even open or use the ONE program I mainly use for my art, and every time I try to download it again, the same thing happens. So unless if I can get some help ASAP, or get this damn problem solved, I won't be able to make ANY art for quite some time... Which honestly really sucks!Paint Tool SAI problems! -PROBLEM FIXED :D-11 months ago in Personal More Like This
PROBLEM SOLVED!! Basically, I just uninstalled AVG, then re-installed Paint Tool SAI, and PRESTO, ALL IS WELL... Now can anyone recommend any anti-virus software that WON'T randomly delete programs I want to keep?
What is Tegaki Messenger you askLots of people have asked me before what tegaki messenger is.What is Tegaki Messenger you ask1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Well, dear watcher, meet tegaki.
It's a pretty much simple "chat" messenger, but instead of typing (which you can do as well) you draw. Then you click send and it sends a drawing message to the receiver. The message is received instantly or with a few seconds delay by the other person.
It's pretty fun to use but I don't think it's that popular.
So, now that you know give it a try!

Hace mucho que no admiran mis dibujos, me siento una artista frustrada D: en serio, creo que a todos ya les da igual... nunca me gusto que me digan "haaaaaaa que lindo dibujas" y la otra puta frase "quien te enseño a dibujar? desde cuando dibujas?" y la más insoportable que se lleva el premio "ME HACES UN DIBUJO?" me revuelve el estomago (depende la persona que me lo pida) , pocas veces YO he pedido un dibujo (soy muy tarada no me gusta pedir)(creo que lo he pedido máximo 4, 5 personas) y si lo he echo es por que estoy realmente al pedo y quiero mandarle fruta .Pero

Varias aclaraciones(Si quieres entrar al grupo y aun no has hecho tu ficha, lee esto por favor)Varias aclaraciones2 years ago in Personal More Like This
¡Hola!, solo vengo a aclarar un par de cosas:
-En ambas fichas hay un campo que dice "género", bien, en dicho campo no deben de poner si su OC es hombre o mujer, si no a que género musical se adapta mejor. Fue un error mio (~Nuoro) el no haber aclarado eso antes. Lo siento :iconpapcryplz:
-ESTE GRUPO NO ES EXCLUSIVO DE ROLEO/RP/COMOLEDIGASTU YAOI. Digo, esta bien si tu OC es gay, no tengo nada en contra de eso, pero este no es un grupo enfocado en encontrarle pareja al susodicho :c el chiste de este grupo no es hacer porno con chinos, es divertirse amistosamente(?) con tus compañeros de grupo.
Otra cosa más, cambie la forma de ingreso al grupo, chéquenlo en el profile del grupo.
Bueno, eso seria todo, espero que no se lo tomen a mal o algo así ):
Got some things to say.In regards to my previous journal today, about --> :iconLurika:Got some things to say.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Please leave her be now, She took down the art and apologized. She was honestly sorry for it and y'know, this is my fault. I should have spoken to her first myself in a note before putting her on the spot via journal and I am honestly very sorry for that, It was a bad decision on my part and I feel awful that she recieved the hate she did especially when it wasn't deserved.
But I am ashamed of some of you.
I asked you NOT to flame her, and yes I know obviously some people will. But really? Telling her she isn't an artist? Or to kill herself?
I am honestly ashamed and slightly dumbfounded that some of you would say that to her, She didn't deserve that. She DID have original art in there.
NO ONE and I mean, NO ONE. Deserves to be told they should die.
So I apologize to her and I adivse you guys to do the same.

We're all guilty of shaming other artists on here one point or another, I can admit that I have and that I'm not proud of it.
It's the most sickening part of this website. Part of the reason why I started my haitus... and now that I started it it's been a bit troublesome getting the motivation to get back on my feet on here.
I haven't quite been myself lately.. I've been dealing with some negative feelings.
But hopefully, the air will clear soon. c:
