Points for Critiques!Hey guys! for those who don't know, I've been learning to paint for 4 months now. I want to learn as fast as I can from all you pros on here, so I thought I'd start something like an ongoing contest to give away points and help me improve.
I'm giving away points to people who critique my work. Each new deviation of mine will be open for critiques in its comments section, and there will be 3 prizes totalling 140 points per painting:
First Critique - 20
Best Critique - 100 Random Critique or Comment - 20
The 'First Critique' prize goes to the first critique, unless it's really short (i.e. less than 100 words, say). All 3 prizes will be sent and announced in the comments section of the deviation roughly 1 week after the deviation's submission date - and then the contest will close for that deviation. The 'Random Critique' prize can be won by anyone (even if you gave a very short critique or just a helpful comm

Never Stop ImprovingIf you're an artist, you know how it feels when you draw something and you put so much sweat, blood, tears, and hard work into it, and you're so incredibly proud of it, then you look back a year later (or a week, if you're as judgmental of your own work as I am) and you think "Oh God, did I draw that?"Never Stop Improving2 months ago in Personal More Like This
This stamp pretty much says it all:
I was going to say that this particular feeling is one of the downsides to being an artist--because your work will never be 'good enough' in your mind--, but really, it's just one of the many great things about being artistic. Why? Because even though that drawing you busted your ass on and were so happy about is merely a doodle in your eyes now and you can point out every single flaw in it, you'll know that the next things you draw will be better and the problem areas you had before will be improved because you know what to work on. I just recently deleted a deviation because of that very thing. I looked at a new one

There's a lot of crap on the internet about what makes a character a Mary Sue/Gary Stu and what does not. Well, here's what I personally think about certain traits that some people overdo and how you can use them in your work without butchering them to the point of Uber-Sue Wonderland. This will tie in with my How to Roleplay Efficiently and How to Create a Good Horror OC journals. You don't have to agree with me on any of this. All opinions are my own, and I'm not trying to bash any particular OCs out there. I'm just trying to clear up some things and help people with OC development. Enjoy.

Alright, you know how a lot of OCs out there who are classified as Sues have tragic pasts? They come a dime a dozen, right? Well, I don't think the input of a tragic past is t
Horror Isn't Responsible For Your Shitty ParentingI wasn't gonna make a rant about this, but seeing as I'm an artist who has a burning passion for all things dark and horrific--and that occasionally involves me drawing Creepypasta and/or Slenderman-related art when I get the urge--I don't want anyone to think that horror artists are something terrible and evil just because two girls went nuts and stabbed some girl for the sake of being Slenderman's proxies.Horror Isn't Responsible For Your Shitty Parenting3 months ago in Personal More Like This
We all know how it was with rock and roll music, rap music, violent video games, the works: THEY ALL POISON CHILDREN'S MINDS.
Yes, of course they do. I've been playing Mortal Kombat--a video game known for its gore, violence, and sexual themes--for a long time, and I've never wanted to perform a fatality on anyone. Heh. I've been drawing gore and horror for as long as I can remember...uh...and I'm perfectly fucking fine. Why? Because my parents raised me better than that. Yeah, my parents and I have a lot of problems at times, but they still taught me better than some of the little
Allison's Omniverse Adventure Contest Opened!!Allison's Omniverse Adventure Contest Opened!!2 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The possibilities of lay out there was endless, and Allison knew this. Her heart fluttered at the thought of the adventures she could have. Ones similar to those that were told by patrons of her bar.
Allison Marie Rosewood, my OC, has the ability to travel the omniverse through the use of an ancient relic she calls The Skeleton Key. At first her travel was limited to the megatropolis known as Parallexus, but as stories of wondrous places were told to her she could no longer contain the urge to go out and explore further into the omniverse.
For this contest, you will be drawing a place in the omnieverse that Allison has gone to. I am really leaving this contest open for people's imaginations to run wild. The location can be anywhere and she can be doing just about anything that would within reason of her doing it. She can be in a world

Yeah, But...They Have More Money/Talent Than YouYeah, and I also don't give a shit. This is one excuse I forgot to write in my Shitty Excuses rant...Yeah, But...They Have More Money/Talent Than You5 months ago in Personal More Like This
"But they have more money/talent than you!"
Like I'm supposed to care? Nowadays getting a career in art or music doesn't really take that much talent. Sorry, but it's true. And I couldn't care less how much money you make. Yeah, for example, Justin Bieber makes more money in a day than I'll make in three years, and he'll make more money in three years than I'll see in a lifetime. BUT I can relish in the thought that he's just a little punk who got lucky. It doesn't mean he rightfully earns that money by being able to sing worth a shit.
Same with certain artists on dA. They're just soooo popular and talented and they sell their art for money! Yes, not points, but MONEY! Yay. Good for them. If they've worked their way up, they deserve what they make. But saying "yeah but they're richer/better than you" is a bullshit excuse. There are artists, singers, etc. ou

You know what pisses me off? When people act like if you're a virgin, it's some kind of a sin and you need to have sex like RIGHT NAO or you're going to die alone and be miserable. Similarly, when some virgins act like being a virgin automatically makes them the most saintly thing in the world.
People always tell me "Kyra, you need to get laid! You need to do it with someone! Blah blah blah". Um, what if I'm perfectly happy in this life not screwing everything I set my sights on, huh? I'm happy the way I am and don't need someone telling me to go be a slut or else I'll be sad all the time. I don't have a desire to do that at this point in my life, and there's nothing wrong with that. I'm perfectly fine with my fantasies and interests, but I don't have a mighty need to go out in the world and make them a reality, you know?

Design an Outfit! Contest
Someone once said there was a huge wardrobe in Fenrir's Tower. Much bigger than any ever imagined, with many different- and sometimes eccentric- clothes for men, women, children. There was no purpose in having all those clothes, if not for satisfying his obsession of collecting things.
This contest is about designing a new outfit for my character, Lilith, and Fenrir--the-2nd's character Fenrir! Read about them in these refs and pu
