PROCRASTINATIONProcrastination... Being a sloth... it's a disease.PROCRASTINATION3 years ago in Personal More Like This
All of us struggle with it. On certain days you just don't feel like doing nothing at all. Other days you feel that you worked hard on something and that you're owed time-off for it. And there's that period where you KNOW you should've been working on something; after a lot of time have passed you eventually find yourself wondering WHY you even went along doing nothing for so long.
We're not perfect creatures, it HAPPENS.
But being a procrastinator compared to being a hard-worker is a measure of how serious you take yourself.
If you have a regular 9-5, come home whether it's a long commute or short one, and then taking care of family matters (wife, kids, or parents), it can be pretty hard to keep yourself focused. That's a valid reason for struggling trying to stay focused on a creative project. Life is hard in that aspect. You're definitely a hard-worker in that regard. If you do all that and then work your

Manga/Anime Tutorial Hub: Drawing AnimeSo what's this all about? A while back I decided that it would be best to create a place where tutorials that are vital to Manga/Anime artists to have a home, an easy place to reach if they felt that they ever needed it. One by one articles featuring tutorials based off of specific trades and mediums will be posted, and in the end a master article that'll unite them all together. The hope is to have as much as possible in one easy to reach place. This time around its Drawing Anime's turn.Manga/Anime Tutorial Hub: Drawing Anime3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Since the trail is now officially over, everything must go!
Any pokemon not bought within the next 3 days will be put up for adoption.
To those volunteer people, as promised, I'll do you a little chibi of a pokemon you have in the group C:
Those who have contributed no pokemon will get no chibi, just to be fair!
Hey guys! I usually don't do these things but I thought it would be a cool idea so I'm going to do it anyway.
Ever found a pokemon on the trail that you don't want and you just decide to flee? Sometimes its a shame when you can't get the trail pokemon you want either, so that's why I came up with this idea!
This will be a mini adoption center for pokemon found on the trail! Now since this isn't an official thing and rather an unofficial member thing (even though I'm an admin cough cough), all pokemon below will be priced at 10 so people get something out of helping with this little idea.

How to Improve your Art and CommissionsWith every stroke we make with a brush, pencil, or any other medium we use, we are improving. Sometimes, it might feel like you are not improving at all and sometimes your art looks EPIC all of a sudden. I really hope this little guide can help you with your improvement and also give you some good tips in regards to creating commissioned pieces.How to Improve your Art and Commissions4 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Observe Your Idols
We all have that one person, or those 50 people on DA who make us feel like our art is mediocre. You have to remember that those artists were once in your position, admiring other incredible artists. Have a couple artists you really really like and try to learn from them. Now I don't mean copy their styles and trace their work, but try some of their techniques or use their art as inspiration. (In my opinion, copying and tracing is how we start drawing but we don't share this with the public. Copy and trace only when you practice!) If you are fairly new to DA, you can browse the popular page, or c

So... What are you?((Before anyone blows me up, this is not mainly about supporting my beliefs, but telling everyone to chose what they think is right, and to not just pick a side because it "best matches them." Morals are yours to keep, and you don't have to fit exactly into any of these categories.))So... What are you?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
What am I? What is my stance?
I would be a Republican,
but I support less spending.
I would be a Democrat,
but I believe in equal taxation and am for lax gun control.
I would be Conservative,
but I support legalizing gay marriage.
I would be Liberal,
but I support the death penalty.
I would be Feminist,
but I'm anti-abortion.
I would be anti-government,
but I don't want chaos.
No matter which of these "clubs" I try to fit into, they always kick me out.
So I stand alone, by myself, and decide not to be a part of any of it.
I can do without a label, what matters are my beliefs.
Same goes for everyone else.
Don't alter your beliefs just to fit into some category.
Believe what you think is right, not w
