How to be Confident!1) Recognize your insecurities. What does that voice in the back of your mind say? What makes you ashamed of yourself? This could be anything from acne, to regrets, or friends at school. Whatever is making you feel unworthy, ashamed, or inferior, identify it, give it a name, and write it down. You can also tear these written pieces to start feeling positive on those points.How to be Confident!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
2) Talk about it with friends and loved ones. Wear it on your sleeve. Each day you should chip away at it; wear it down. There's no quick fix. Get to the root of the problem; focus on it and understand that you need to resolve each issue before you can move on. And that doesn't mean you have to get rid of whatever makes you feel bad (many times, you simply can't). You need to learn to accept yourself, your past, your circumstances as they are, without necessarily thinking of them as "bad".
3) Remember that no one is perfect. Even the most confident people have insecurities. At some point in any

Episode 19 and 20!!Ok, first off I want to say that Jason Biggs is NOT getting kicked off the show!!! The article about a scandel that happened back in 2012, and was cleared up. Dominic was just filling in for Biggs because Biggs' wife is pregnant and couldn't work that day Nick was recording. Biggs is doing Leo for the season 3 of TMNT 2012.Episode 19 and 20!!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Well, with that being said, I'm SUPER Excited about the Wrath of Tiger Claw (episode 19) and The Legend of the Kuro Kabuto (episode 20)!!! These episode are said to air in June. No date has been set.
The only information given is for the Tiger Claw episode. Saying "Tiger Claw returns and Karai learns the truth of who her true father is" FINALLY KARAI LEARNS THE TRUTH!!! I was expecting that to happen at the end of the season, but I guess I was wrong. And Tiger Claw is coming back, YEAH!! And he'll have a new look. http://spyruto99.deviantart.com/art/Tiger-Claw-is-back-446885518
I'm wondering if Tiger got those injuries from Shredder for failing him, or from escaping

Age, Talent and ArtI saw a comment today that made me blow my top. I wanted to pick a bone with them.Age, Talent and Art8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'd really like not to express all of my feelings right here, right now, but I'd like to say a couple of things about that subject of Age and Talent on Art.
It's not like I am going to change the world with that journal, but it's worth trying a bit. And it might help people with lack of confidence about their art and age.
Firstly, allow me to make something clear. Art has nothing to do with your Age. Believe me, it's true, and I'll prove it to you.
Back when I was around.. 13 years old the first thing I was looking into someone's profile that their gallery was wonderful, was their age.
Maybe everyone did back then. Some people still do. But why do we pay so much attention on age? Because we're concerned about "how much time do we have to improve till we get there".
At least, that's what I was mostly concerned about. I was lazy as well, pro

They need to be reminded that they are not mistakes but that they are a different and new path than the one taken previously.
Don’t let those who are lost lead your path for you. They will only you lead you wrongly and you will lose yourself along the way.
This is your life, live it based on every little success you earn and learn from every mistake you make.
Their mistakes are their own, and you are not a mistake. You are a successful example of what it means to be alive. There is no greater success than that.
This life is yours. Be something — be someone you’re proud of.
That's all I have to say.
5 Things No One Seems To Know About FanfictionIt's been a while since I dared to broach the subject of fanfiction, but some recent discussions about its merits have driven me to the keyboard yet again. Maybe I'm just a natural curmudgeon, who gets her jollies stomping on other people's idea about art. Maybe it's the indignant fire in me being banked by phrases like "Do NOT redistribute, claim, copy, edit or use it in any way" on fanworks and people saying things like "That's someone's creative work, man!" in reference to said fanworks. Maybe it's because I fiercely believe that we don't need new excuses to lower ourselves to ever greater levels of mediocrity. Or maybe it's just because I like making fun of people whose best contribution in the creative sense is somebody else's far more successful idea.5 Things No One Seems To Know About Fanfiction2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Fanworks are derivative works. This is the big one. Holy crap, no one anywhere on the Internet seems to have any idea what the hell this means. First of all, fanfiction and fanart are not "creative works." Creative work i
What needs to be changed IMOSo I was asked a day or so ago to post what my ideas actually were and what my actual concerns were on what could be changed or fixed on dA since all I did was basically pack up and leave.

1. Take actual cases of art theft a bit more seriously.
This seems to be the one most people are on about and yeah, I get pissed off about someone stealing my stuff but what really gets me is how hard it is to resolve the situation. It shouldn't be that hard to get staff members to remove a stolen piece. More so when it's the original artist reporting it.
It doesn't take a genius to review a situation where the works are side by side and compare if they are indeed stolen or flat
Holiday Card Project 2014Holiday Card Project 20146 months ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The deviantART #HolidayCardProject is back for its 8th year! With the goal of bringing a bit of holiday cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the Holiday Card Project connects artists from around the world, applying their tremendous artistic abilities to designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In 2013 alone, the Project received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 2,000 deviants from 60 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed by deviantART members to local Los Angeles hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for deviantART volunteers and hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who sends in a card will
Why did the system change?Alright, I'm likely beating a :icondeadhorseplz: with this question but I've been chatting with a few people who've been dealing with theft or have dealt with theft of their work recently/in the past.Why did the system change?2 months ago in Personal More Like This
To be honest I think the whole system a site like DeviantART has in place is pretty bogus. You fill out a DMCA removal form and 98.6% of the time you will get an automated response that will openly say one of two things:
1. "The admins have reviewed your report and have concluded that the piece you reported does not violate dA's rules"
2. "The admins have reviewed your report and have concluded that they need more information to complete your report"
In reality all this says to someone like me is "We looked at the report but since this person is a member of the website, we care more about revenue than your artwork".
It's not hard to see the obviousness of theft when you have two visual examples in front of your face, as well as an overlay showing they're the sam
