Can I take a few moments of your time?I just want to say a few words. Words I've been wanting to say for a while not but haven't had the much-ness or know-how to say; mostly because I didn't want it to come off as just another one of 'those' journal entries.

Firstly, thank you to all my watchers, followers, and fans. I rarely say 'fans' because to me one would have to be famous to have fans but it seems more or less over the last couple months (or years even) I've become somewhat infamous for all the wrong reasons. More so when it comes to my small circle of friends.
You see, I don't get on easily with others, not online or in real life. More so in real life, mostly out of fear I suppose... But that's neither here nor there. Back on track.
What I'm trying to say is just thank you, for putting up with the crap I've pulled, the misery I've brought on through countless grueling journals about how crap my life is, this, that, and the next thing.
A huge thanks out to those who actuall

A (more official) message from SplashHELLO FRIENDS! It is I, Sarah (pSarahdactyls), here to inform you all of the recent drama. As you may have noticed, my account isn't doing so well at the moment. Yes, I was hacked. The hacker tried to feature their channel as me, had what I can only assume was a temper tantrum when no one believed them (they used improper grammar, come on dude) and deactivated my account. They managed to change not only the password to it, but the email, so I still can't get back on.A (more official) message from Splash1 year ago in Personal More Like This
(The greatest offense, however, was the theft of my fantastic dinosaur pun, triSarahtops.)
Anyway, I've emailed deviantart, and I'm gonna try to reactivate/get back on the account, if not I'll make a new one. If that happens, I will post the new username here with Misty's account.
Oh, and guys, try not to make a huge deal about this, you know how I feel about internet drama.

The most I can do it, is red-line anatomy and give you critiques, On what I personally think is right. You might have a different view since art is what you make of it, we are all open to our own interpretation but no one is 100% right.
If you really want to become a good artist, you need passion to do so, a drive to become better, study hard and hone your skills, if you don't have that, then you can never become better.
No fancy tablet, program, or expensive equipment can make you a better artist, it can help it look a little nicer yes, but the skills to make it, is all on your trail and error from experience.
IF you really want to learn how to draw, get inspired forget about fail, just enjoy it have fun with your art, Art shouldn't be work to you, it should be pure entertainment.
if your not enjoying it, maybe art isn't your t

Now I already did a previous journal (My opinions on referencing, copying, and fans)
if you wish to know a little bit of my thoughts on that...
But I just don't get it.
When people pose and steal to troll, that's one thing. They're just being immature and bored more or less among other possible reasons.
But when people pose and steal identities and work to gain popularity, make friends, or get a name...
Have you no shame.....?
And what then, you make friends, and sooner or later maybe you guys become besties and you'll have to tell them who you really are (and aren't) if you truly consider them a friend. What then? Maybe some are still kind and forgiving enough to let it slide, but how many would still respect you for lying about yourself just so peo

Someone should make a Warrior Cats AMV with thishttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_jbXOz7PXEgSomeone should make a Warrior Cats AMV with this2 years ago in Personal More Like This
like seriously it's just so Warriors (first arc anyway)
The lyrics (starting at 2:07)? Sounds exactly like it's speaking about Rusty/Firestar/whatever. ("You took a room and you settled in... I should've known one day you would come, all of us walk so blind in the sun..." Seriously) Plus the whole woodsy vibe.
If I wasn't busy I'd make it.
Also something I've been considering, if anyone would be interested, is collaboration by storyboarding Warriors AMVs. I don't have the time to do a ton of animation anymore, but I'd be more than happy to help someone out with storyboards / concepts. Lemme know.

Lately I've been noticing a lot of people have been putting the effort into taking my pics and coloring over them.
I've added noise over the pics for a long time to prevent that, but lately people do it anyways.
And I /know/ it must take forever to erase, because it covers the whole picture.
And then they still give me credit, but it's like, klfsjd why would I add noise over the pic if I was just gunna let you recolor it anyways? ;w;
So, just be warned, I will report you if I see it, I don't find that stuff okay. :U
The only pictures that it's okay is my early 2009 Warriors pictures. That's it.
And if credit isn't properly given I'll still report it.
(By properly, I mean a link to my DA, not just "Lines by Blue," or "Credit to BlueKyoKitty")
Also, making "lineart" out of my stuff is never okay, even for the stuff I said could be colored over.

Simple Tips to Improve your Visibility on DAHello again everyone, your friendly neighborhood Co-Founder Saeglopur12 hereSimple Tips to Improve your Visibility on DA1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Jeremy has requested that I write a few journal entries while he is busy recovering his hand and working on the 'Promoting Unseen Artists' project... So I thought in the spirit of all of his efforts, I would provide you all with a few simple suggestions to help you increase your own visibility within the DeviantART community in a positive and mutually-beneficial way. I'm hoping to make this a short series, so if you all like what I'm writing, definitely let me know in the comments
(Author's note: These suggestions are solely based on my own observations and practices within the DeviantART community, and as such are totally subjective. Also, results may vary).

Of all of the options available to you, this is by far the fastest and most immediate way to increase your visibility on the site, with very little effort on your own part. If you aren't submi
An ObservationIt's really funny to me the interactions I have with people in varying environments and the different reactions I receive from people based on their perceptions. Take for instance Deviantart, which I find most interesting. Some of you create an entire persona for me based on my art style, skill level, number of page views, and watcher count. I know for a fact that there are some of you who have the misconception that I believe I am above common folk and the very air I walk on is blessed. Some people also think I'm very cool and talented and you wish you could be me. Little do you know I am the biggest dork to have ever graced this planet, second only to the dorkiest of dorks Bella. True I do not respond to every comment, but I try to respond to the comments that aren't one of the following: "Cute!" "Love it!" "Awesome Work!". DONT GET ME WRONG THOSE COMMENTS STILL MAKE ME SMILE LIKE A PUPPY WITH A NEW BONE TO CHEW! However, all I can really say to them is "Thanks!".

This journal is going to contain some stuff I've told very few people, but you guys are going to get the whole thing now, because, well, why not?
So, I served as a lurker on deviantart for roughly a year, throughout 2009. I was an engineering student at University of Colorado and was not by any means, artist... well, unless you count the music I produced. I went under a rather stupid alias for music production: DJDT *cringes horribly* and produced remix music for several artists. And I was introduced to Deviantart by complete mistake. Using an engine called 'Stumbleupon', I found the work of one artist that confused me: :iconkeirawinstanley: <-- old acct of theirs. Confused why? I couldnt figure out which sonic game their character was from. I soon discovered the FC sonic community, as well as the larger spectrum dA community and was astounded by the works of art
SooooooooooFew people are man/woman enough to openly answer any and all questions thrown at them.Soooooooooo3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Copy/Paste this as a new journal entry and answer every question you get.
The rules are simple:
-You must answer every question you get no matter what it's about, and you must do so honestly
-There are no questions that can not be asked as long as they are within reason. They can be personal, about OCs, and everything in between
I like being asked questions, so ask me stuuuuuf. XD
Despite what the journal thing said, there are some questions I wont answer.
Anything like the following will be politely ignored:
Will you draw me something?
What do you think of my art?
What do you think of my character?
Will you teach me to draw/animate?
And things along those lines.
Because a LOT of people ask this stuff and I'm just not here to answer questions about your stuff, I'm sorry.
Also, I'd rather not answer questions about ex's. owo They are fully functioning men capable of spea

But I don't know what to draw, because it's been years since I read the books. They're all sitting on my shelf, but every time I pick one up I'm blown away by how bad they are and have to put it down. :I
Maybe I'll just pick up one at random and draw whatever scene I open up to.
Or, maybe give me some scenes and I'll draw them? Feel free to mention a scene, and maybe it'll interest me to draw it. u3u
Blue, wtf, you need to be doing commissions, not drawing drama pussies.
I know, I know! ;A; But I just have this uncontrollable desire to draw Warriors right now and I need it out of my system.
ART STYLES“You stole ________’s style.”ART STYLES2 years ago in Personal More Like This
“This reminds me of _______’s style.”
No, You can not “copy” a style because no one “owns” a style.
WE ALL START OUT SOMEWHERE
Do you believe that all artists are simply born with natural talent? That, without looking at another piece of art their own life, they are able to produce master pieces?
Of course not. They have to learn. They learn from artists in the past. They have teachers. They study other people’s artworks.
That’s how life works. You have to learn from somebody to get somewhere.
If no one is willing to share what they know or learn from others, we can't make advances in anything. (ie. the medical field)
One can not simply wake up one morning and produce a masterpiece. They have to learn, practice and look fo

Dear DeviantART ProjectEDIT: Thank you so much for all of the people that wrote their own "Dear DeviantART"s, I'm overjoyed at the amount of positive feedback that this project has received!! <33Dear DeviantART Project2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I had this idea.
Whoever wants to can write a journal describing exactly who they are.
Not "I'm an artist that's very friendly". ho you REALLY are.
Your great traits and your flaws. How you treat people and how you want others to treat you.
This is meant so we can all know each other better, form better bonds, etc. 'v' Just a fun thing.
And if you decide to make one, I'd advise calling the journal "Dear DeviantART," and possibly linking back here so others get the idea and can spread the project. c:
Here's an example of one; http://fav.me/d79m90a.
If you make one, comment with a link please <3 Or at least mention me in the journal so it'll appear in my messages, at which point I'll read it and add it to the list. uvu
