Improvements, I has them too by chibipandora Improvements, I has them too by chibipandora
o_o Yeah. Not a lot of drawing last year. But now I've graduated college and am in tech school :D ... yes, you're allowed to be confused :confused:




I'll try and keep this brief, but...
When you look at the thumbnail 2007 is just this line of pretty much no color compared to the rest. And maybe it doesn't look it to other people, but that years drawings just look fragile and vulnerable. Don't let destructive people get into your life. You need to be responsible for the choices you make and likewise, expect that of other people.
Especially women. We're taught that we're supposed to be caregivers, be kind and understanding. And this message is very useful for destructive people to take advantage of.

It's so interesting to see how your art has improved over the years, yet your style has remained basically recognisable as your own. :)

:blushes: Thanks. It serves as a warning for others. If you draw anime the whole time you're just learning it won't go away... :giggle:

I love the progression I see in your artwork. Alot of these that have been popping up in my box and really show little to no advances which is sad. But really you can see it in your work and for that I applaud you! Great work love!

It really is quite noticeable how 2007 differs from other years. But I'm glad to hear that even though it was a hard time for you, it is passed now and you have really learned something from it, knowledge that you're also able to pass on to others. It's a really valuable lesson for many of us.

So thank you for being so honest about it and perhaps saving someone else from making the same mistake. :hug:

On another note, I just realized I remember almost every drawing on this... xD I really must have been following your work for quite a while! And vice versa of course!

:no: And those were the ones I put up on DA and didn't delete later. If I had the pictures I didn't even upload on DA I think the effect it had would be even more visible.

:hug: I'd be surprised if it helped anyone before hand, because its very much a "that'll never happen to me" kind of thing, but I think its still important issue to talk about.

x__x We're so old.

In internet terms, we really are old. o_o
I mean, I've been online since '97/'98. D8 That's when some of the kids you see online now were BORN.

But we are also experienced. :XD

Well, it depends I think. n_n And every little bit helps so you're right that it's important to talk. I haven't had any romantic relationships which have been like that, but boy have I had exhausting friendships! ._. A lot of them when I was younger (mid teens, vulnerable age I suppose) and didn't really reaize how it was going to end. Now I stray away as best I can from that kind of people whom I suspect to be energy thieves, because I know if I get too into the friendship then I'll be determined to help and try to convince the person to change their mind about something, and some people just... never do. And for some reason in the past I took that personally and it hurt so much. o_o

._______. Yeahhhhhhhh I've seen those. And then I think, if I'm feel old NOW ... then in a few years... :shakefist: EXPERIENCE! THAT'S RIGHT!

o_o Well, I mean as women we're taught to be loving and take care of people. That people can change, all they need is ___. And it started out as a pretty poor friendship, but then he got better for a while and he decided he liked me. I even said no at first, but then I thought, "this is how its supposed to work, right? I put all this effort into helping him get better and now hes in counseling and he loves me for sticking by him and helping him!" ... But the next thing I know everything is falling apart all over again, worse, and hes telling me I'm to blame. o_o And, well, yeah, like you said it hurt a lot.

x_X So now I'm with you. If I'd have known to bail out of the friendship I could have skipped all that. And through it I've met better friends and yeah *_* Again, its still had a lot of positive outcomes in the long run.

Yes! Exactly! Besides we're way younger than the 30-somethings who've hardly ever been on the internet. They exist you know. o.o

x.x Wah good thing you're out of it now anyway. xD And it's good also that there have been positive outcomes as well ^^

Wah I write crappy comments today, I blame it on the oral exam I have tomorrow. 8D; I had a huge written one yesterday covering the first 2 years of med school, tomorrow it's the same thing but we do this presentation of something we won't even know what it is until we get there.

I hope I get something nice. :w: Like the synapse or something, I know that well! Even tiny little molecule names, lol.

x_x Oh I know the 30-somethings. Sometimes they're a joy to talk to and other times... well, they can be worse than the teens.

o__o I got to these way late, so I hope it went well! Glad to hear you went to Med school! :aww: I remember you mentioning that years ago, but you were still in the process of applying (if I remember right).

It went well, at least the parts I got to know the result straight away. ^^ They still have to correct the written exam for everyone.

Yeah I was! I started two years ago, but when we started talking I was still in high school. XD I graduated from there in June'06, then went to Med School in Jan'08. o3o

:highfive: Well done!

._.; The odd thing about knowing people online is that when I'm out of touch with them I seem to assume they're just on pause. >.> And based on what people say to me from time to time, I don't think I'm the only one who does it.
