Eu não sou a melhor pessoa para passar dicas à alguém. Na verdade, eu nem me considero suficientemente capaz de dar algum ensinamento. Mas eu sempre fui muito curiosa e interessada com o mundo da pintura digital, ficando horas e horas e horas assistindo vídeos de 2 horas de duração no Youtube, livestreams intermináveis, a fim de aprender. Apesar da necessidade de se ter uma paciência (de ouro), foi o que mais me ajudou a aprender e a desenvolver os meus conhecimentos. Criando esse hábito, acabei conhecendo e desenvolvendo as técnicas que apresento hoje nos meus trabalhos. Provavelmente como muitos de vocês que agora me leem, cheguei a pedir a ajuda de muuitos artistas que eu admirava, e alguns até me ajudaram como podiam, mas a maioria simplesmente não se importa com o quanto

I get it, I really do. You're busy, you don't really want to do your job, and you've been taught to have the least possible concern for other people as you can as to avoid branding this website with a 'bad reputation'.
This place is supposedly all flowers, rainbows, and happy people frolicking away in eternal bliss sharing art, and being merry.
Meanwhile the truth is this place is the biggest joke on the internet. It's filled and continually filling up with so many sockpuppet troll accounts, cyber bullies, and spammers with such rapidity it puts Myspace or any other social media site to shame.

*puts on tinfoil hat* What Frozen is really about!Watched Frozen today and it was quite the mess of Scandinavian culture and stereotypes. Don't get defensive if you really love the movie. It was indeed a cultural mess, but in an entertaining way. Also, while watching it, I unintentionally came up with a somewhat sinister theory of what is going on behind the scenes of the main story. (Keep in mind this is just for fun. I can't imagine this was what Disney was thinking. Consider it an alternative interpretation of the Frozen universe)*puts on tinfoil hat* What Frozen is really about!7 months ago in Personal More Like This
While it takes place in some Disney fantasy country called Arendelle, it's clearly strongly inspired by Norway, what with all the mentions of fjords and such. But the people in the royal city are wearing clothes that looks like a mix between Swedish and Norwegian dress and they raise a maypole which is mostly a Swedish tradition in Scandinavia (it's still done a few places in Denmark too and even fewer places in Norway, so really, it's seen as a Swedish thing). At one point they meet a shopkeeper who

*I'm not sure if the title explain everything but eeeeh ok....
Right now I want to make a change about the things I draw, because lately I havent enjoyed drawing as much as before.
I dont feel free to make what I want.
I feel really tired and sick of making drawings that I have to do instead of drawings I want to do.
Its like.... all this drawings I have to do had become an obligation and my to-do list is always getting larger so I don't have time for myself.
With some of the last drawings I've made (Like the cover of Ai Kotoba II with Amene and Kazu's VCV design) I really felt like enjoying drawing them because they were things I wanted to draw, and I also gave them a lot of dedication and effort so I really like their results........

My very long DA Story o3oeveryone's been doing these so i decided to do one, tho be warned it will probably be long x_xMy very long DA Story o3o2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
so it all started before i knew about DA, i was bored and browsing YouTube for Sonic Comic videos, when I came across a comic by :iconknucklessilverlove: the comic was Amy In Wonderland. what brought me to DA was that while reading he comic on YouTube it ended in a random spot, so freaking out wanting to read the ending i looked around the persons YouTube videos and found an info video about the comic which stated that the writer of the comic had CANCELLED the comic, there was a link to the persons DA page so i followed it and desperately searched the folders for the rest of the comic, but had no luck. instead i found new comics by her like the Biovi Plague comic. So tho i never got to see the ending of the comic that brought me to DA i still got to read more awesome comics by her.
I didn't make an account right away, i browsed around DA for a while before I signed up, I saw a

Yes you heard right. After all of the time of saying it will not be available for years because we wanted to release it all at once, a lot of conversations have been made and the deicision is being made to give out a playable version of Dreamtalia from chapters 1-8.
Originally we weren't going to, to keep it like HetaOni. But really, we don't have that kind of fame for it to spread. With the hiatus everything is dimming a little, at least I've noticed. So to help save the fandom, we're putting this out.
However, our truly wonderful coder Skitzen is working extremely hard to get it going by a certain specia

I have a pleasant announcement for all Kuroshitsuji-fans
According to the February issue of Square Enix's monthly G Fantasy-magazine, a new production Kuroshitsuji has been approved!
The live-action movie is opening 18th of January, this Saturday, as well the 18th volume of the Kuroshitsuji manga.
The new anime will be an adaption of the Circus Arc and will start airing 10th of July. This season is called "Kuroshitsuji: Book of Circus"
Can't wait to see how the circus artists are going to look animated! Especially Snake since he is a part of Ciel's staff in the canon storyline of the manga.
A new OVA are also coming and it's called "Book of Murder" and is about the murder-arc from the manga.

To commemorate OMOICHIDOU's 1 year anniversary, we're kicking off our TWO MONTH CELEBRATION with a Month-long MUSIC FESTIVAL!!!
What does this mean?....
BATTLE OF THE BANDS!!!!
Before I get down to the specifics, I just want to make a small note that we're not going to be doing any PAIR or PATH Missions this month. The reason being, we WANT you to work with your TEAMS this month.
Too often the team missions are ignored, which is fine, you get to pick and choose what events you want to do and not do, but I think it's a shame not to have a little funness with your Teammates too. Especially since we just got new teams.
PS since this month we have no PAIR missions, the TEAM Missions will count DOUBLE... you know what, make it TRIPLE!... so if your team does the Music Festival Team Mission, you will get 3 Collab-Mission points. What's this good for? For your Elements of cour

OC Pairings This is sort of a rant thing, idek.OC Pairings10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Just so you know, I have pairings of my own with my OCs, and I love them to bits :iconimseriousplz: so don't think I am dissing on the whole idea of pairings.
One of the reasons I hate romance in anime/manga and now RP groups is because well, 90% of the time, they are so terribly forced.
They lack any real development, and are just thrown on top of one another.
Seriously, they'll glance at one another, and it'll result in "instant rabu".
In RP groups............pairings...........nngh.
Pairings can be very troublesome. Once people force their characters together, they only deem their "partner" worthy of their attention, and it gets pretty freaking tiresome. If you are in a chat room, you have five or ten other people, take the freaking initiative to get to know them, or RP with them. To be honest, I think with pairings, you either ship em.........or grimace at their existence.
Most of the time.......
