Believe in yourself! :)I’ve been receiving a lot of notes this week with the same message. People are thanking me because I gave them a llama/fav/watch. But those persons also say something which makes me feel bad. They tell me that they don’t deserve it because I am a ‘better’ artist. They are also afraid to upload something because they think nobody will like it.Believe in yourself! :)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A long time ago I was like that too. I was convinced that I couldn’t draw at all. I was afraid to upload my work on deviantART. But one day I said ‘whatever’ and I uploaded one of my artworks. A small amount of people actually started to like it! I also got a lot of negative feedback and really harsh comments. It made me sad to read comments like that. But I kept practising a lot, instead of giving up, and I learned something important from it: use negative feedback to become better and enjoy the positive feedback.
It’s true that some artists have more talent but it doesn’t mean y

Devious Journal EntryOkay first of all I realized I don't care for naming journals anymore. Few exceptions.Devious Journal Entry2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But real issue time; apparently there's this art thief person who's stolen Daft punk art from people such as myself, NeverWINT3R, Tomofromfire, and a few more. And it's not like they're actually getting recognized as drawing well for stolen art but still, they steal art.
So yeah I don't think they'll listen if you go and tell them to kill themselves [don't do that that's not okay] or tell them to stop or anything, so I don't think you need to go and do that, just report them.
Also apparently they blocked myself and the other artists they stole from, so I can't report them or talk to them or anything.
Anyways this person is :iconask-ruben:
Soo yeaaah. Release the dogs of war. I dunno. Art thieves.
UPDATE: They're deactivated, good work everyone!

Drawing tips - tutorialHello watchersDrawing tips - tutorial2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some people ask me how I learned to draw and what tips I can give them! So I wrote a tutorial and hope it will help! Here are my tips for you to become a better drawer!
First of all a good drawing stands with good materials. Good paper (no copy paper) and good pencils. If you're not sure, the expensive ones are mostly pretty good! For graphite I use Staedtler Mars Lumograph and for colour Faber-Castell "Polycromos".You need to use different numbers of pencils: 4H for very light areas and 6B for the dark areas. A big contrast in a drawing makes a better drawing! You can't make a good drawing with one HB pencil. You need a 6B or 4B to create more depth in the drawing.Choose a good picture. The greatest drawer in the world can't make a good drawing from a bad picture. A high-resolution image is necessary to see all the details! Next to the high-resolution, it has to be an interesting picture. The result could be a beautiful drawing, however a boring image wouldn't attract a

My thoughts on anime stuffOkay, so there's this really weird thing that I've noticed about being an artist that always strikes me as odd. About 95% of the time when I meet people and tell them I'm studying to be an illustrator, the first question I get asked is not "what are you wanting to do with that?" (which is pretty common though) but instead it's usually "Do you like anime?" :/ Which, that strikes me as odd. I mean, I know some people you can just look at and tell that they're "anime people" (you know the kind) but I've never really considered myself to be one of those people. >_My thoughts on anime stuff3 years ago in Personal More Like This

who the hell was the dumbass that thought it would be a good idea to have one of the most wretched internet sensations known to man and implement it as a BROKEN keyword system on DA? i emphasis BROKEN because HOLY SHIT all my keywords in all 448 pictures of mine are FUCKED up now, and i am NOT redoing over 400 pictures' keywords! >.>
dont believe me? lets take a look at some of my pictures. now keep in mind DA thought it would be a good idea to AUTO CORRECT all keywords that already existed, instead of just, ohhhh i dunno, leaving them all as they were ._.

A plan to get deviantART to change the logoIf you like the new logo, this journal entry isn’t for you, but if you don’t like the new logo, I have a plan to get it changed. So far, people have just been complaining about the new logo looking terrible, but that isn’t going to do anything. The deviantART staff will just think we’re complaining because we don’t like change. We can’t just tell them that the new logo is terrible, we need to PROVE it!A plan to get deviantART to change the logo9 months ago in Personal More Like This
We need to put our pencils where our mouths are. We need to spend our time making or improving their logo, to prove to them that their logo is bad, and that we want them to change it. They say that deviantART is for the community; that we’re all in this together. Well let’s see them prove it!
If we all work together, and ALL of us make our own logo, we’ll be sending a message to deviantART. A message they simply won’t be able to ignore. If their entire art community is willing to spend the time to fix the mistake they made, they

We also have, as some of you remember, a contest going on, Tolkien themed. It's only a month to go! I might consider extending the deadline if needed.
Since we don't get many submissions to two our folders, Clothing and Jewerly and Artisan Crafts, I decided to merge them into one, named after the latter. However, it's not closed for anything else than A.C., since it also includes the old Clothing and Jewerly - as the folder description says, you can submit to it also fashion and cosplay photos, when the outfit is clearly presented.
Deviants In Need - Missing Person GOOD NEWS!****Update: I am happy to report that the missing person featured in our last edition, Sahray Barber, was found ALIVE! Thank you again for all of you who helped spread the word!Deviants In Need - Missing Person GOOD NEWS!6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Hello everyone. I am sharing some important information tonight on behalf of who-dat-betch, whose friend has been missing since March 9th. Sahray Astina Barber was last seen in the San Bernadino area of California when she left her apartment to catch a bus and has not been seen since. Her belongings, a laptop and cell phone, were found near her apartment building, so she may be in immediate danger with no way of calling for help. There have been several cases of attacks in this neighborhood lately, which adds to the severity of the situation. We are asking that if you live in the San Bernadino area to please keep your eyes open and contact the proper authorities if you have any information about Sahray's disappearance. Additionally, we ask that
