Opinions are a Dangerous thing: Fandoms.I HAVE A LOT OF JUNK ON MY MIND but I wanted to talk about this one since it's been a reoccurring thing that happens more frequently that I like to admit. It's people that have an interest in something that ultimately gets crushed down by other people who pull the 'I'm a better fan than you are' spiel. I hate that, I absolutely hate that. Taking an interest in something is not a competition on 'who's dick is bigger' when it comes to who is the more hardcore fan.Opinions are a Dangerous thing: Fandoms.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
A lot of people measure their commitment and stronger interest through merchandise or other means if they don't have the money. It can range from a collection to people just never shutting up about it (i.e. me lmao) but that doesn't mean it's a bad thing. BOASTING about it is a bad thing, and it's extremely rude and careless. I don't understand people's motives on trying to show off or come off as champion fan since you gain nothing out of it than presenting yourself as a huge ass.

Hohle' have only ONE ADDICTION. not two, not three. only ONE they thrive off of that keeps them alive. they can be generally 'addicted' to other things out of interest but they don't need it to survive.
The addictions on the reference sheet are VAGUE EXAMPLES OR CATEGORIES. I get some creative ones lately and others that are just from the reference without much more thought about it. BE CREATIVE. THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX.
When it comes to being creative about addictions, Common ones I'm getting are for each type as -
Devil - Pain, Blood
Neuvae - CAFFEINE

And my Job hunt begins again.So I pretty much lost my job, they terminated my position yesterday morning an hour into my shift without previous warning. Their reasoning behind it was because since it's a brand new store and the grand opening is now settling down, they don't have enough hours for everyone and can't afford that many people. So they based their decision on seniority and since I was within the 60 days of my hire date, I was one of the choices. They also told me they based their choice on needing people with a 'sense of urgency and ability to follow direction' which was a slap in the face since I tried pretty hard to be a good employee and I thought I was doing really well especially since I got a lot of thanks and feedback from other associates and assistant managers. Though part of me just feels the main manager never liked me to begin with, since she does her own hiring and she didn't hire me, Human resources did and she had no idea who I was and I didn't get a schedule till a week into it.

Another journal in one day WOWZA.
No but I wanted to discuss with people that the species itself is in no way solid for me. I discuss the concept a lot with my brother who is fairly skilled in creating stories and works and as much as he's a butt about it, he comes up with neat as hell ideas for realism with fantasy elements.
We had a huge discussion tonight about 'what are the origins'. We don't know specifically but we got a vague concept now. We talking about the discrimination, the world, the society and the creatures themselves and why they are what they are and what purpose they serve. To things like their addictions to their horns.
So I want to put here our vague concept we have for now. and I know I'm just putting this all out here NOW right as soon as I went through 40 notes of people wanting one and I just made the reference (which I'll add some edits in the artists comments about and edit the
Coming to terms with myselfThis is a ramble journal so it's not really important. Nothing anyone has to read though it's nice to just talk to a more public ground.Coming to terms with myself10 months ago in Personal More Like This
For the past few months I've been facing mad lack of selfworth, and people telling me I'm great and wonderful doesn't help at all. since I honestly don't feel that way. Sure I suppose I can mean things to people, but I mean nothing to my own self and that's the most damaging part. I fell into on and off depression and I hate what I look like and I don't even feel like I'm worth being with another person. I have a lack of interest in having sex and I'm not interested in being with women.
And that is OKAY. I'm just coming to terms that it's OKAY to not be interested in women, it's OKAY to not want to have a relationship based on sex. and its OKAY to not even feel ready for a relationship. I don't want to dwell on 'who would love me in this body' rather, I'm happy being independant and focusing on myself and my goals than having to care for another perso

I'm turned away from doing streams on this site, I often run into people their either don't read the rules, are overbearing, rude, disrespectful and even make an attempt to backsass me when I give warnings. I'm honestly really tired of it to the point where I just don't want to do it,
How To Get Me To Donate PointsI've been feeling generous lately, and admittedly have been donating points to certain Deviants who have started donation pools on their page. As a result, others have actually started requesting I donate points to them. So I thought I'd tell you what inspires ME to give points, and quite possibly might get others to donate to you also!How To Get Me To Donate Points4 years ago in Personal More Like This
RULE # 1
Don't directly ask me for points. It's a major turn off, and I will automatically deny someone points for asking. Don't send me a personal note, and definitely don't ask on my wall. I gave points one time to someone this way, and only because I really liked their gallery. Besides, asking me feels intrusive, because all the Deviants are people I've never seen before! People on my friends list will get points before strangers. Now that's not to say a journal post about having started a donation pool and what it's for is inappropriate, but I'll get to that later. Just remember, looking a gift horse in the mouth is not proper etiquette.
RULE # 2

Overpricing?I have got many complaints about my commission prices from people saying those are too expensive, especially on my latest pixel commissions.Overpricing?9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Honestly, I don't feel like I'm overpricing, and I don't think I am either.
I would like to specify that my commissions are not paid for the piece itself but for the time I spend on it. I know the price of my pixel drawings may seem expensive, considering that these are small, but I spend almost as much time on these than on my regular drawings.
My regular commission prices are of 37$(3700) and take me around 3-4h of work.
My pixel commission prices are of 30$(3000) and would take me around 3h of work.
I think being paid around 10$/h for sitting here and draw is a right amount. Considering the minimum hourly wage of where I live is of $10.15
I've been drawing for fun for a long time but now I'm really trying to make a living out of my commissions since there is nothing else I can do to earn money at the moment.

Opinions are a Dangerous thing: Art StylesThis isn't about narking on anyone no, infact this is just my own muses really! You could say this is a journal for ENCOURAGEMENT! *SHINES*Opinions are a Dangerous thing: Art Styles10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I find sticking to one style restrictive if you are a beginning/moderate artist! (even professionals I might say! though I can't speak for everyone)
Having a distinctive look on how your art is done and produced is understandable and its a desire to appear unique to the point some one can just SEE your work and instantly think 'Oh! that's Ten-days!' or something along the line. However, when you are trying to find who you are and what kind of art you are to produce, I recommend trying, well, a lot of different things! Different styles, mixing styles, different colouring techinque, brushes, tools, shading. Don't feel dependant on what you are already doing and don't feel pressured by people just for trying new things!
Push out of your comfort zone. Can't draw hands? don't avoid it! draw the heck out of them! (how else are you going to learn?)
That's a dog...You know what is amusing?That's a dog...9 months ago in Personal More Like This
When people make groups (mostly on Facebook) dedicated to wolves saying "WE LOVE WOLVES" or "WOLVES ARE MY FAVOURITE ANIMAL!" and yet... they post a ton of images of dogs like huskies, shepherds, and malamutes (all Nordic breeds really).
Nothing is more hilarious to see than an image of a full blood husky with a caption saying 'A beautiful wolf with blue eyes!'
It's like dude... if a wolf is supposedly your ''favourite'' animal you SHOULD know what one actually looks like and how to tell the difference between a wolf and a dog.
It's really not that hard unless it's a wolfish breed like the Czech Wolfdog or a Saarloos wolfdog (etc). Then I could see the possible mistaken identity.

I've never actually had a fursona that is "me" that I like. Sure I have Gordon but he's more of a mascot orsm. I never get pleased with what I design myself, and I tend to want my fursona to be different animals all the time. I can't decideeeeee.
So i thought i'd do this contest lol.
If I end up not wanting any of the designs, I'll still crown a winner (prize might be lower tho).
OK LETS START
remember to read everything
it can get long heh
THINGS I LIKE AND STUFF:

idk what species I want or anything. i'd suggest you pick one of the animals listed below here that remind you the most of me (you can pick a animal that isnt listed here, but please ask me if i like that animal before you do).
