How do you deal with haters?I got this as a question on my Tumblr, and I felt I could share my thoughts here as well because it seems it's something a lot of people can relate to. I hope this comes to helpful to any of you guys reading.How do you deal with haters?11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I’m certain there are people who dislike me. Some I come to know through whisperings because I have eyes everyyyyywheeeeere.
However, I don’t feel the need to acknowledge them or do anything about it unless they are causing any real harm, especially to people I care about.
There is a popular quote that I like referencing for this topic, which gets the message across in a charming way:
“You can be a juicy, ripe peach and there’s still going to be someone who doesn’t like peaches, so you can either submit to someone’s criticism of you, or you can get on with the business of being your own amazing self who attracts other like-minded people that appreciat
artzI think that anger from visual artists towards other artists never has anything to do with anatomy, style, age, content, or personality. These are just icing on the cake. At the core, I think there two kinds of practicing artists:artz2 years ago in Personal More Like This
- People who believe that you need to be qualified (by an abstract or specific entity, person, or group) in order to make a living or name for yourself. Anyone who is doing these things without qualification is a cheater who will fail ultimately.
- People who believe qualification is subjective, or even irrelevant, and you might as well shoot for the name or living while you progress your skills anyway. Anyone who isn't trying to make their mark while practicing anyway is wasting their time.
I think that a recognizable name and income are the "holy grail" achievements for artists… though obviously there are many tiers and kinds of achievements, some big and some small! I suppose it's a little natural for artists to be angry, envious, or upset whe

Majora's Mask CraftsThe Dawn of the Final Day is almost upon us! Ever since the 3DS remake of Ocarina of Time was announced, fans have eagerly awaited the day Majora's Mask would be similarly remade. Cue Operation Moonfall, a fan movement made in the hopes of proving to Nintendo that a MM remake was very much in demand. As the years passed, even the founders of the movement expressed dismay, believing it all to be a failure.Majora's Mask Crafts3 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Little did we know that Nintendo were already way ahead of us. And way better at keeping secrets than we thought. As soon as they finished Ocarina of Time they began working on the Majora's Mask remake. We're almost about to have that gorgeous game in our hands, so in celebration I'm going to share with you some of my favourite Majora's Mask crafts!

I'm just writing this journal to share Joe Madureira's art advices which I came across today, and found very useful.
Yeah he was the one who gave out these advices, not me, but I've been asked about this a lot, and he just spoke my opinions in a very well worded way, so I think I'd better share with you. :"D

The Thane MOD *Keep Thane Alive***FINAL UPDATE**The Thane MOD *Keep Thane Alive*2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The day has arrived, and users are now able to download the ThaneMOD from nexusmods , and moddb . *Remember: the Installation Guide included with all packages is your friend.* There is yet one more surprise....Ottemis, one of the original creators of the Thane inspired Hoodie, has graciously extended her Texture library by creating brand new (and exclusive for the ThaneMOD) Thane-centric HR Hoodies. These are available for BOTH genders. Currently they are being offered through the nexusmod site, along side of the ThaneMOD. We will eventually include them directly with the "packages", in our next version release. Thank you for this wonderful addition.
Over the past 10 months, the ThaneMOD team has had Eurekas! and set backs. We
Why You Should Keep WritingWhy You Should Keep Writing2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
Q: What do you guys think of my story so far? Should I keep going?
This seems to be a very popular question. I'll argue it's a useless question, and explain why.
This reply is directed at new writers, and despite the tone that may follow, I really do intend to be sincere and helpful. I was once a newbie, too. And although I'm certainly not going to claim to be great, I've fallen flat on my face enough times to learn how to pick myself up and produce something I'm proud of.
Here's why you need to not ask this question. You're either going to succeed, or you're going to fail. But, either way, you'll be better off for having:
2. Figured out how to motivate yourself to continue
3. Completed the entire first run of the story yourself

2011 Europe tripThis took forever but I'm finally getting down to blogging about it! I've been looking for someone to tour Europe with, but unfortunately schedules are hard to match and money doesn't come by easy. Been wanting to visit Europe for the longest time, and last year I thought, if I don't go now, I may never have the chance to go. So I made up my mind to recce on my own, and in two weeks I was off on a plane! I didn't plan to go overseas for my graduation trip, so I shall reflect and relive last year in place of that XD2011 Europe trip3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thoughts like "what the heck am I doing" did occur to me on the plane, but they were quickly taken over by the fear and excitement of exploring unknown lands 8D Since I was flying alone, next to me sat a Chinese lady who was working in Rome. We got to know each other a little better over the 13-hour flight, and she very kindly offered to drive me from the airport to my hostel ;v; I'm forever grateful towards her, as she made me feel safe and comfortable from the very start o

HTMR - About TraditionsUna vez después de cenar, me quedé con mis hermanos al calor del fogón, mientras Quauht saltaba como grillo, La abuela Maya aplaudía al compás e Hibueras tocaba un tipo de instrumento, quizá una ceremonia… No, realmente era más parecido a un baile.HTMR - About Traditions3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Me asombré al ver la fluidez y gracia con las que realizaban los movimientos, movimientos sin sentido, era algo improvisado, y más sin embargo era perfecto.
No reparé que la Abuela Maya me observaba mientras se me caía la baba por semejante espectáculo (Algo que para un niño de mi aquella entonces edad era algo mágico) cuando de repente me empujó y caí en medio de ellos. Sin detenerse, me sujetaron de ambas manos y me hicieron moverme al compás. Una acción bastante cruel, puesto que yo aún seguía siendo pequeño… Tan pequeño que en todo ese zangoloteo parecía que jugaban con un muñeco

If you have an OC and want it to be drawn by me i think you should give it a try ^__________^ But please do not ask for fanarts or other peoples stuff. Everybody with Original Characters is welcome though.
I will draw the give aways with pencil and maybe i turn on my camera for recording and make a youtube vid at the same time but no promises for this. When its finished i upload a photo here on Deviantart like the recent ones in my gallery. I won't send out the originals but if you want a scan of it i will do one for you.

A little amused but after checking I found that it was indeed true and a certain user ragequit on Raindrops due to the lack of updates. A couple of things I would like to address since I've been busy, I haven't checked DA in a while so I haven't been able to read all of the comments. SO!
1) This was really amusing to read on some level.
2) Thank you to everyone who defended me.
3) Sorry to those who agree
4) Thanks to the rest for understanding!
And most importantly!!! I mentioned in the past that my average speed for writing Raindrops is usually one chapter per year. Usually because life gets in the way like... work, and friends, and other interests. And just because I don't get to Raindrops doesn't mean that I've abandoned it. It just means that I haven't gotten to it. In fact, I've spent the last several weekends writing and rewriting the script for Chapter 8 (which is like the longest chapt
