Even after existenceI too had a love, it was big, perhaps as much as it is today my pain. I also felt the charm of a scented mouth.
I can’t see you sad, because it kills me ... the essence that was the light of my soul.
Your face full of sorrow ... my sweet love ... Today I missed that nothing that was between you and me, subtle and quiet.
It hurts so much those tears that you pour out... it fills my heart with anguish ... and trying to smile, even with closed eyes, I see you perfectly.
I suffer the unimaginable if you are sad ... and it just seems natural to have your lips against mine, against my face and throat.
I do not want that doubt makes you cry. The notes of the violins impose their pace, our pace, the rhythm of your heart.
We have sworn to love us until death, and if the dead love, after death we can love us even more.
Oh ... Women that walk in front of me and never dedicate their glances at me ... So close to my eyes, so far away from my life...
And she, the special one, always smiling, l

Being happy with your artI've noticed lately, that there's this emotion that leaves people overwhelmed with the massive amount of good art in the community, thinking that they can never become as good or popular as those others. So sad, because skill or popularity in itself shouldn't be the major goal of an art community. I think many people who start out here get so overwhelmed that they forget what it's actually about.Being happy with your art10 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Many people out here, sign up to DeviantArt (or any internet art community) in order to publish their work on the internet. They've probably looked around for a while already. They saw those amazing artists that had millions of pageviews, and secretly hoped that by putting their art on the internet, they would be able to do the same. To become madly popular -- a community icon.
Well, sorry to burst your bubble; but it's probably not gonna happen. And if it's gonna happen; it's not going to be soon.

Robin Williams, Depression, and a Thank YouI honestly didn’t mean to come back so suddenly, but the news from earlier today just hit home very hard and I felt the need to say something to y’all.Robin Williams, Depression, and a Thank You8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Robin Williams Passes Away
Robin Williams passes away today at the relatively young age of 63. The earliest reports so far seem to confirm that it was a suicide by asphyxiation. He had been battling severe depression for quite some time now, and it seems that it ultimately did him in. Robin Williams was one of the first actors who’s career I began to follow as a kid, owing largely to his involvement in Disney’s Aladdin as the Genie.
I remember a story Stephen Spielberg told about when he was filming Schindler’s List. While over in Germany, Robin Williams would call Stephen up every night to tell him a joke because the story of Schindler’s List was so depressing and difficult to film Stephen needed the pick-me-ups.
It’s incredibly sad that Robin ultimately took his own life lik

The DA point system is a horrible, irritating scam that pisses me off to no end.
Let’s think about it this way.
Sure, you can go to the store and buy, with real money, a copy of monopoly. Within that game comes a whole bunch of fake money… and, because that money is fake, there are ridiculously high amounts of it at an inflated price. It really LOOKS like a lot of money, and you can use it to buy things in monopoly! Which is cool and fun! But if you take it anywhere outside of monopoly you’re screwed. Who kept your real money that you paid for this? The company who produced the game

One of those things said to me, a while ago, was that I wasn't so much of an artist.
That, despite the fact that I was decently known on the internet nowadays, I didn't make actual great art.
(The actual comment phrased it somewhere along the lines of "famous as hell, but still draws like a college art student")
And you know what I thought? This guy actually did have a solid point. The way he worded it down was just... not so clever.
Throughout my life I've seen people with great skills in everything. I've learned soon enough that people typically see themselves as either a left-brain or a right-brain thinker, meaning so much that their either go with logic or intuition, and are often either good with numbers or social skills/art (that come with that).

The Myth of TalentThe Myth of TalentThe Myth of Talent9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
If there's one comment that is made more often than any other on any decent piece of artwork it's "you're so talented."
It's also the one [positively intended] comment I've seen the most artists bristle at, sometimes even retort. For some of us, it's a pet hate. Why?
We know it's meant as a compliment, so we smile and say thank you and try to resist the urge to insist that 'talent' is the biggest myth there is. Not only is it a myth, at its worst the use of the word is potentially destructive to the artistic community.
What's so wrong with the word 'talent'?
You might not realise it, but calling someone talented can often feel like a backhanded compliment. No skilled artist woke up one day just being able to do what they can do. We were all born completely unable to do just about anything useful. But through daily practise we learned how to use our limbs for motility, our voices for words, an
Pride?I was just thinking about what to draw for Transgender Day of Remembrance (open to suggestions, guys!) and I thought, why isn't there a trans pride day/week? All we have is a day to remember those we lost because of the awful things that can happen to trans people. That is hardly instilling hope for us, we should have a day where we show our pride, as much as our solidarity, where we can show the world that it's not all bad. There are pride days, weeks and months for many groups, but sinking into hiding and invisibility are the already overlooked trans community, and I don't think that is right!Pride?1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Yet we all do it. Either aware or unaware.
It all starts when we see an artist here whose work we like a lot.
Most of us have been there. Seeing the work of an artists that hits a soft spot in you, for whatever reason that might be.
You admire it, but at the same time you feel sad because you realize your level is still miles away from this artist, and you will probably never be able to do the same.
But despite everything, you start following this person. And you keep following him.
Because somewhere deep in your soul, you hold the believe --or rather, hope-- that when you watch it long enough, it will reveal it's tricks.
That it will inspire you in some way. And that you'll be able to do the same.
Unconsciously, we all build images of our idol.
It's human nature, I guess. We fill in all the blanks. The things that we don't know from this person.
Because an idol isn't a person anymore at that point. It has become an ico
So many artists underpricing...It makes me really sad.So many artists underpricing...8 months ago in Personal More Like This
When an artist you want to commission finally open their commissions back and all of their slots are taken in less than a minute.
And I'm sure all the slots would still be taken if the price was increased of x2-x10.
So many artists are still underpricing themselves. People make it a standard for art to sell for so cheap and whenever someone charge more than this standard, which is probably still underpriced, people complain.
By underpricing yourself, you are also contributing to keep the price standard of art low on this site. Charging low can be insulting to other artists, but also to yourself.
Please, don't ever feel like you need to underprice yourself, because of the fear of what other might think or say. You art is worth more than that. There will always be someone complaining, you cannot please everyone. Your time, the efforts, the skills you gained over years of hard work, is worth far way more than a few cents/points.

I just had to say that I've really been enjoying Super Smash Bros for Nintendo 3DS, It's certainly my favorite smash to date, and so in honor to it,I would like to open a Collab so that many people can contribute to a huge picture for this series as a whole, the collab would consist on each artist drawing a roster character from Super Smash Bros., and then at the end I would join all the drawings together in a huge picture, now, some rules:
- You cannot pick a character already taken nor can you pick more than one.
-The drawing must be digital and have a transparent background, if a transparent bakgrounf is not possible then please send it in a .PSD file or .SAI file.
-You're free to upload the drawing wherever you want even if the collab isn't complete yet.
-The deadline will be set once all Characters have a set artist. If it starts taking too long I might add a deadline with the characters had.

Christmas might or might not be the right time for this, but I don't really care to be honest. I think this here needs to be said...
I'll get straight to the point:
This wont get you any further!
So just stop this!
Yes I'm talking to everyone!
Even to myself. And you as well.
~I can't do this.~
Stop thinking bad about yourself.
The person who knows you best... is YOU. You know that you are not a bad person, unable to do anything. Or to manage something you really want to. You know that you can do what you want.
If you keep trying. If you believe in yourself. If you do this, you can reach anything you want.
So there is no reason to think something bad about yourself? Why are you doing so anyway? Thìnk about it and you'll see that the reason is not that reasonable at all.

Stop let everything pulling your mood down.

Summer IdeasHey everyone! Just wanted to update, as I have not written a journal entry in what seems like forever. >.< Shame on me, haha! So, as of about a week and a half ago, I am out of school for the summer! Hence, this is why there has been an increase in the amount of poems I have been submitting (plus the fact I am still unemployed XD). I have been trying to alternate between posting a longer and shorter poem, although sometimes I didn't follow this pattern. Is everyone liking that? Or do you think it really matters? The short poems, since they are shorter and simpler to read, seem to be drawing more people in, which I guess is good? But at the same time, I love writing the more detailed, longer stories, even if people don't take the time to read through them. The struggle with literature writing is real.

If someone tells you that your character isn't pretty or it hurts their eyes or it's too simple and it's 'unoriginal'-- screw them. It's your character, not theirs.
I've been seeing a lot of deviants lately posting designing 'tips' for characters. Yes, some of them are helpful but listing a bunch of color combinations that you don't think look good together discourages people from making characters that they may really enjoy.
I don't care if your character is a rainbow gradient with white spots--if you like it that's all that matters c:
