Still Missing You16 years ago today I lost my baby brother. It still seems like yesterday and I will never stop missing him. Nick would have been 31 now. It hurts when I think about what could have been. I'm sure he would have been in the military, just like he wanted to be; just like our daddy. He would have continued to help the homeless and less fortunate and, no doubt, there'd be more rescued animals, too.Still Missing You in Personal More Like This
So yeah, it's an emotional day. Decided to push off doing laundry and stayed home. Gonna be working on writing today. Most likely just the holiday requests. Hopefully there'll be an update to the progress tomorrow or Monday.
Much love, y'alls,
See Y'alls Sunday!!!!!!!Yeah, off now to work on writing. Won't be back on until Sunday at the earliest, I would believe. Things can change, though. I am thinking and I do mean thinking about opening up a few requests slots for 1-shots. I'm thinking three at most. Don't know when I'll get around to that, though. I'll let y'all know if and when I do requests again. Speaking of requests, I took down Sunday Morning because the "person" I wrote it for is no longer a part of my life. I may rewrite it later, but at the moment, I highly doubt that. However, it's a great possibility that I will reuse the title of Sunday Morning, though.See Y'alls Sunday!!!!!!! in Personal More Like This

Would you rather walk around all day with you skirt tucked in your underwear or be seen wearing a really see through dress?
Do I really have to choose between these two. Uhm...I'd go with the skirt tucked in. Altho, I don't wear skirts or dresses. So....
Would you rather go to a party and not realize until the end of the night that you have lipstick on your teeth or that your fake lashes are coming unglued?
Lipstick on teeth would be so embarrassing. I'd have to go with eyelashes, even though how you don't notice that is really beyond me.
Would you rather forget to put mascara on one eye or forget blush on one side of your face?
Mascara, definitely. I don't rock the blush very often.
Would you rather wear lipstick/lipliner combo or frosty blue eyeshadow?
I wear lipstick from one time to another, so yeah, the lipstick.

Almost half of our lives we spend in a state of being that ranges from a near comatose blackout to a surreal quasi–consciousness we accept as a visit to a non–reality.

Some of us “don’t dream.” Some of us enjoy our dreams. Some of us are terrorized more nights than not by hideous nightmares. “Beds” are different countries for each of us, with no

Afterwards, we went home, and I ate a bagel for lunch, with grapes and Chip's Ahoy cookies. This afternoon, my mom dragged me to the nail salon to get our nails done. (I'm kidding, it was relaxing.)

Currently we have more than twice as many female applications as we do male applications,
unfortunately, we are taking an EVEN SPLIT - (same amount of males as females),
especially since the majority of those who quit the group had MALE characters,
as well as having more gay pairings than straight pairings, so the village is pretty male-starved right now.
Please keep in mind - with the new clans opening, Clan applications are at priority!
So chances are - at least 5 of those 8 non-clan apps will NOT be accepted if we don't get more males.
I'm not saying take out your application and submit a new one - that's ridiculous.
(Besides - you might be one of the one's we're planning on accepting!)

It's weird how much the internet can become an influence, and how this process goes so unnoticed. At a certain point the countless voices of people around you blend into a continuous buzz.

Inspiration: Art websitesMany people asked me about which sites I use (or used) to learn and keep myself updated about art. So I decided to make a list with art websites that offer tutorials, advice, or other content that inspired me. Of course there are many other individual artists that inspire me greatly, but I've tried to keep this list to the ones that provide the community of advice and tutorials (otherwise I could go on forever).Inspiration: Art websites in Art Features More Like This

Of course, we all knew that the internet could be a very nasty place. It has been a nasty place before and pretty much every single one of us knew that there places out there that are better be avoided when you're a sensitive person (or a normal human being with feelings -- however you want to call it). What the recent issue confronted us with, however, that as artists we aren't safe either. I can remember the earlier internet raids. The victims were either big organisat

Either the guys here are young and naive --that's what I hope it is, since still being pure hearted in a time like this is good-- or they are willingly unaware of what's happening around them.
It all started with a question that came to my mind.
Would people be willing to pay a few point in exchange for a feature on a busy page?
How I got to the idea?
Well, I'm doing contests and giveaways now and then. Things for the community, you'd say. To get some feedback, feature stuff, promoting unknown artists, and that kind of stuff. In order to host those contests and giveaways I often need DeviantArt points. Now, I do get a lot of them by sheer donation. But that always seemed a bit empty to me. So I thought up some kind of idea. To give beginning artists the chance to get featured, and make use of the traffic on my page, in order to get their work viewed by people all over the website. S
How to: AnatomyHuman anatomy is, for sure, one of the hardest things to draw. But at the same time it's one of the most interesting things to draw, because... hey... we love making characters, and it's nice if they at least look a bit like a human being. I'm still far from perfect at drawing the human body, yet I've accumulated some very useful tips, tricks and websites.How to: Anatomy in Art Features More Like This
Drawing from life
Drawing from life is awesome!
Look for life drawing classes in your environment, or if they're not available; ask your friends to pose for you. Go have a drink in the city when the weather is nice, and sketch people passing by. There's nowhere you learn more about human anatomy than by observing and sketching real people. There's only one downside to this; dynamic poses are tricky, as it's hard for any model to hold a difficult pose for a long time.
And no... drawing (nearly) naked people in a drawing class isn't awkward. I

Don't worry about your age. Do not get discouraged by those that are younger than you and better. Some people start art when they are 6 years old and are prodigy's at age 16, others make a rather late or slow start. It doesn't matter if you're 10 or 80 years old. You're never too old to learn something new, and you're never too old to do something you enjoy.
Everybody has potential. Even the greatest masters in art started out as beginners. It just takes a lot of time and persistence.
Don't be afraid to fail. Most masters have failed more times than any beginner even tried.
We only see the best from other people, and compare it with our own average. For every amazing painting a good artist puts online, he probably made 100 failed sketches. Sketches you'll never see and you'll never know o
EncouragementWhen I started out on DeviantArt, I used to be one of those artists that thought I could never do art properly.Encouragement in Deviant Events More Like This
I'll start saying that I spend most of my childhood getting only little encouragement.
My parents were, like many other parents, convinced that art wasn't that much of a useful skill since it's nearly impossible to earn money with -- and would've liked it if I spend my time doing something more useful instead. At school I was that pathetic kid without friends. Creative, yet very introverted. The one that gets bullied in the schoolyard. Needless to say; it was rare to find people saying something nice about me, and it was even more rare to find someone actually encouraging me.
Back then, I used to believe that I was alone. I initially signed up to DeviantArt to find people with similar interests. But it happened to change my mind along the way. When I came into contact with other artists, I came to realize that there were in fact many people just like me. People th
PracticeBy now everybody already knows that becoming a good artist doesn't come from talent alone. On contrary; talent is a myth. Like the famous quote goes: "Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration". Meaning so much that even with a good idea and a bright mind, you still have to work your ass off in order to achieve something. While this makes mad skills available for basically everybody, I still hear many people complain about practice being a rather boring thing, or about them practicing a lot but still getting nowhere.Practice in Deviant Events More Like This
So I thought; Oh well... Why no article about practice?
Conscious vs unconscious practice
First of all lets divide practice in roughly two types. You have the conscious type of practice. This is the kind of practice in which you're sitting down and thinking to yourself "Hell yeah! I'm gonna draw some <subject> today to get better at this!". And then there's the unconscious type of practice. The type of practice that is often more playful an

Give up on being a mangaka -- or hold more realistic expectations
Admit it. Most of us here started drawing manga because we liked the style at a certain point. How awesome would it be to one day become a pro in that field. A real manga artist (or mangaka, like they say in Japan)! The truth is... becoming a mangaka isn't that easy. It it were, many more people would be one. First of all, mangaka's live in Japan. That's the only country with a manga industry big enough to actually ha

Tip of the Day: Mental BlindersSometimes you really have to just shut your brain off after making a good decision and just do it. Too many times we find that we know what to do but just don't do it. Today, come to a decision that is something you KNOW is a good one, then put on the mental blinders and just FOCUS on that task.Tip of the Day: Mental Blinders in Personal More Like This

I can honestly say that I grew up with this community and everyone here has taught me so much, and not just about art, but also on how to be a person. When I first got this account at the age of 12, I could have never imagined how much it has shaped my life and career. It sounds cliche but I probably wouldn't have became an artist if it hadn't been for everyone here on deviantART. Through all of the ups and downs in life, the community has always been the support and inspiration that kept me going.
I hope to give back as much as everyone has given me. I will continue to create more comics, tutorials and art in the future. I will never stop, and I have you all to thank for that.
So truly, thank you!

I last visited China almost five years ago. I was unfortunate enough to be stranded at the LAX airport for two days. During that time, I met another girl my age who was also returning to China to visit family. We talked for a long time and I found out her parents are also divorced like mine. She told me how her stepmom would regularly burn her with cigarette buds. I was horrified but I felt lucky that my stepmom is kind to me. I told her I was lucky to have a nice stepmom. I had never been so wrong.
When I first arrived, my stepmom greeted me kindly, and we talked, joked, and hung out like a regular family would. But her mask was quickly cracking a

Is Invisible Children Trustworthy?Since I posted the Kony 2012 video, a lot of people have been telling me that the organization is not to be trusted with donations and is under investigation (but raising awareness is still good).

Here's one of the many messages that people have been telling me. Please read carefully and judge for yourself:
" I do not doubt for a second that those involved in KONY 2012 have great intentions, nor do I doubt for a second that Joseph Kony is a very evil man. But despite this, I'm strongly opposed to the KONY 2012 campaign.
KONY 2012 is the product of a group called Invisible Children, a controversial activist group and not-for-profit. They've released 11 films, most with an accompanying bracelet colour (KONY 2012 is fittingly red), all of which focus on Joseph Kony. When we buy merch from them, when we link to their video, when we put up posters linking to their website, we support the organization.

I'm pretty sure this is going to be a rant (not that I have ever posted those before ) but bear with me because I just... I got to say something about this subject.
"You have a lot of talent and you waste it on drawing stupid dogs!"
"Don't you understand that series is for CHILDREN? You're too old!"
"If you want people to take your work seriously, stop drawing stupid animals!"
"All you draw is cats. Can't you draw anything else? I'm so done with your unoriginal bullshit art."
"Wolves, wolves, wolves. All you ever draw is wolves! BORING!"
"Are we ever going to see anything but shitty cartoon dogs from you?"
I'm sure all of us at some point in our artistic lives have dealt with someone who decided it was a good idea to rag on your choice of artwork subject matter. If not yet, you will... trust me. We ALL go through it.
It's hard enough to deal with it from strangers but it's another thing when it comes from people you know. Family, friends,

First of all, after nearly 3 days of being virtually useless being sick as hell I woke up this morning feeling decent. Unfortunately in light of my previous bout of being sick I seem to have managed to get a different illness... this one being in the form of an incapacity to eat properly. I have an appetite and I make food, but I eat like 1-2 bites and I start to feel sick to my stomach. I've heard it's a natural thing that happens after a physical illness like I had but still, it's kind of irritating. I was so damn happy I'd actually out on weight (a full 15 lbs!) but I've lost like 10 of them now =/ I've already got a thyroid problem which makes it nearly impossible to gain weight properly so to have something like this happen is not good.
I have a hyper-thyroid which causes me to metabolize food rapidly. The average person's digestion is about 4-6 hours after a proper me
Things have taken a turn...I've spent years of my life in a pretty huge pool of regret. Most of the time I was told I wasn't worth the dirt I walked on by the people who supposedly loved me.Things have taken a turn... in Personal More Like This
There was a lot of fear, longing, confusion, and honest to God disappointment in my youth and it led me to develop some kind of complex over the years.
I went out tonight with my mum to go shopping. For the most part we get along sometimes, mostly dependent on her moods. Some days I'm nothing to her and others... I'm a friend. I never really know what day will bring what kind of reception. Today was one of her good days I guess.
The journey started out as usual discussing random crap about her work and the car and then the rest of the time I'm sitting there listening to her hack her lungs out before she goes into another bit of conversation.
Something was different tonight though...
To understand what I'm about to just say you'd have to understand this woman I live with. As I mentioned some

What the hell is up with all these young people becoming Satanists? [Please forgive that awful pun... |D]
I mean honestly... do you even know what a Satanist is?
What they do? What you're getting into?
This isn't just a 'walk in walk out' kind of thing...
What drives people to become Satanists? More so young people...
I mean really... What convinces you?
Are you trying to stick out, be different, be edgy?
Look, if you were BORN into the religion fine... but if you willingly, openly, and nonchalantly just walked into that religion I suggest you rethink what you're claiming to be.
Satanism isn't what they show you on TV with shows like 'Supernatural' where the demons are these hot men and all's well ends well, okay?
It's not that at all.
I'm all for free choice but when I see so many teenagers walking into a religion that

It’ll be crowded, stuffy, and you may wind up being disappointed about something, perhaps even angry, but remember that the people who are serving you are just doing their job.
Be kind to them and understand they are not miracle workers, they cannot part the Red sea to find you an item that their store is out of, so don’t yell at them about it.
TIP: Usually they will offer to search for the item you want in another store of their company, take up the offer and if you really want that item be willing to go get it where they find it.
They can’t disobey the rules laid out for them as company policy just to make you happy, so don’t try to guild trip them into doing it. They could and will get fired, and losing your job during the holidays is no fun.
They aren't your personal p

Pardon my language but -- what the Hell is wrong with the dA admins?
I mean really?
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.
