How to be confident as an artist(A serie of wonderful tips from solar-citrus, a lovely artist from Tumblr! I hope you enjoy this c: )How to be confident as an artist10 months ago in Personal More Like This
1. Accept compliments
Putting down your art will not only destroy your confidence, it kills positivity and throws out the kind words that people give you. Take those words and gratefully accept them, you deserve it! Simple as that c:
2. Remember your achievement
Ever since you began drawing, you have gained experience and knowledge through work and practice. Why mope and sulk over things you haven't learned yet. when you can use that time to work towards your artistic goals? Believe in yourself and give it all you've got. Optimism is the key! You'll get there, I promise!
3. Be proud of your work
Why would you expect others to like your work when you, the artist, talk terribly about it? It gets tiring very quickly and makes your work seem much less desireable that what it actuallly is! Don't downplay your art's worth.

What is Positive Reinforcement?Modern behavioral science has proven that forceful handling such as physical punishment, leash yanking, or making a dog submit by rolling it on its back is psychologically damaging for the dog and has potentially dangerous consequences for owners. Instead, the most successful modern training theories suggest that reinforcing good behavior with rewards while using constructive discipline is much more successful. Positive reinforcement (i.e., giving the dog a reward in the form of praise, play, food, toys, etc. when it responds and offers an action or a behavior that you like) has been shown to be the most effective way to train a dog because rewarding good behavior will increase the likelihood of that behavior being repeated. Similarly, the use of constructive discipline (marking bad behavior by using vocal sounds to interrupt the behavior and refocus the dog onto something more positive, ‘time-outs’ or simply ignoring the dog) ensures that the dog learns which behavior is lWhat is Positive Reinforcement?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Rabbit BathsEver bathe your rabbit? Why in the world would you want to do that? A responsible rabbit owner does not bathe their rabbit without a true reason. Sometimes an older or disabled rabbit might need some help keeping clean. But most of the time, especially with healthy rabbits, your pet doesn't need a bath, and the reason why is explained in this need-to-read journal on bathing rabbits.Rabbit Baths3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There's one major reason why not to bathe a rabbit, and that is simply because it's unnecessary. Rabbits stay impeccable by grooming themselves daily. The only thing you need to do to help keep your rabbit clean is maintain their hutch, bedding, dishes, and toys. Also brush them daily and keep their claws trimmed. Breeds with longer hair (such as the lionhead) and breeds with larger ears (such as the English Lop) will require more diligent care to keep them clean. But with the correct care even these guys won't need a bath.
Rabbits groom themselves like so:
5 Ruts You'd Better Not Fall Into As A Writer1. Seeking validation on the outside and getting shocked when you get critique. Validation comes from within, folks. Hard life lesson, but there you are. First of all, every artist of any kind has to learn to tell themselves they've done good work even in the face of their detractors. (One just hopes they balance it out with taking valid critique into consideration so they improve.) If you can't, you're not going to accomplish much. Second, I'm not saying that encouragement and fans and book deals aren't very nice things, but to the creative process they can be massive distractions. I read recently that a core of stillness is necessary to the creative process, and the more distracted I get, the more I understand it. I have seen entirely too many writers (and by this I mean full-grown adults who should be emotionally mature and everything) seek validation in a desperate and pathetic way, and get outraged when — gasp — someone tells them their writing could improve.

They hate mainstream, or hate a genre
Emergency KitAll rabbit owners of every degree should have some sort of a "rabbit emergency kit" prepared and ready to go. Sometimes bad things happen when we can't get our pet to the vet. Here's what you should have:Emergency Kit3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Pet carrier - always have a suitable pet carrier to put your rabbit in case you ever have to leave home quickly.
Blankets - it never hurts to always have extra blankets and sheets for general use. Just be careful to not allow your rabbit to ingest these items.
Baby food or canned pumpkin mix - use this when your bunny refuses to eat. It's easy to get baby food or canned pumpkin into a syringe. And be sure to only give them veggie or fruit flavored baby food if you use that.
Critical Care by Oxbow - same with the baby food and canned pumpkin, you'll use this when your bunny refuses to eat. However, this is only available through your vet.

Week 1 - Why Do Dogs Bark?Why Do Dogs Bark?Week 1 - Why Do Dogs Bark?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
What is a bark?
A bark is a sound most commonly made by dogs. Although other species of animals make a barking sound it is thought that the dog only produces this sound because it was domesticated by humans.
More wild species such as wolves and foxes do bark but rarely, instead they rely on body language, posture and expression with a few sounds to communicate efficiently.
Types of barking, what do they mean?
There are many reasons a dog may bark, some include loneliness, fear, aggression, want to play and even disciplining others.
Midrange, rapid barking continously - “There's an intruder, call the pack together!”
Midrange, 3 or 4 barks at a time - “Pack leader, there may be an intruder. Come see?”
Continous barking with large gaps - “I'm lonely, where is everyone?”

1. If your work cannot explain or defend itself, it needs a rewrite. The knee-jerk reaction of most people I run across in writing circles is the manic desire to man the wall of their ego and defend it from all comers. The person in question didnt really come for critique, per se, but validation. They only want to be told how wonderful they are, not that their character is a vomit-inducing Mary Sue described with prose the written equivalent of nails on a chalkboard. Good writing needs no explanation; bad writing deserves none. Its as simple as that. If someone says they didnt understand something fundamenta

1. If the world revolves around your character, they're probably a Mary Sue. A Mary Sue is, contrary to popular belief, a state of being, not a state of appearance. A lot of people tend to try and "fix" a Mary Sue problem by having their character be ugly instead of pretty, jerkass instead of sweet, a fat, helpless blob instead of someone who can throw lightning bolts, and stupid instead of smart. (This is called an Anti-Sue, as opposed to a Purity Sue; many subspecies of Sue exist; just ask TvTropes.) But, somehow, everyone in the world manages to not comment on her ugliness, bad temper, obesity, or stupidity. In fact, they try real hard to buddy up to her, even plan their calendars
Anime Revolution Review + Avatar VideoAnime Revolution ended a few days ago and I'm still riding that con high! In my opinion it was a stellar con with a really clean and professional atmosphere/vibe. It was the con's first year, but to me it ran (and looked) like a much more experienced con. I've heard a lots of criticism of the con, but not from the people I ran into at the con itself. Everyone I came across seemed to be in really good spirits and had a positive opinion of the con. I know that there are some tensions are Vancouver cons at the moment, but in my opinion the more the better! I'm not going to side with one con or another, to me that'd be silly, I want all the cons to succeed cause if my hometown was con central than I'd never be bored!!!

All my wigs are from eBay. There is not anymore the ones left which I used for Rose, Dave, Porrim and Kanaya. My Karkat is this one http://www.ebay.com/itm/Reborn-Takeshi-Yamamoto-cosplay-wig-/250987686298?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3a7008299a . Lapirin owns Roxy's so I do not know the seller, but I know that it's from eBay too.
All my t-shirt's prints (Alpha!Dave, Dark!Rose, Default!Rose, Karkat, Roxy, Kanaya) are made with T-shirt transfer paper. Basically it works this way: first you make the print with computer, then print it (to transfer paper), cut the print from the paper and iron it to your t-shirt. Easy as it can be.

1. Stephanie Meyer. Yeah, yeah, big shock. The thing about Stephanie Meyer that gets me isn't necessarily her actual prose (although it can be pretty bad), but the fact that she breaks so many writing conventions. Probably the biggest being that her protagonist never truly sacrifices anything to get what she wants: she gets her boyfriend, she becomes a vampire, her father's suddenly okay with both of those things, she gets the baby, her spare is somehow happy being paired up with her baby. Everything ends up perfect and wonderful for her for all eternity. Anyone else ever have that happen to them? Total perfection with no struggle on your part? Can you relate to

TMNT: Why Capril Will HappenOkay for starters I do not understand Apriltello, I hate when people say Casey will steal April form Donnie. Steal? No. Donnie never had April, why you people act like April is his life is beyond me. There is so much more to Donatello, people pretend to be his fans but demean him by pretending April is his only train of thought. He has so much potential but a love life with April is not one of them. Anyways Capril is one of the most canon ships out there, from comics to movies down to cartoons, so why is everyone surprised Casey is coming in? He is as canon as April and the Turtles. For Donnie in the long run a crush is nothing more then a crush, and in the end you get crushed. It'll be a good life lesson for him. Also Rob Paulsen said Donnie will pick up his game when Casey comes, which means Donnie feels Casey is moving in on April and April is excepting his affections.
