FollowingTheRabbit: Passage into Patreon

Journal Entry: Sun May 6, 2018, 1:55 PM
Hey you.
Guess what.
I just finished up with this semester, and my last two are going to be relatively stress-free, since I've completed all my psychology class requirements.

So I think it's the perfect time to start one of these up.

Yep, I'm giving into external pressures and starting up a Patreon.

What does this mean? Well, not much, unless you really  like my stuff. I'm going to continue to make whatever it is I make, and it will all be uploaded her for free viewing, from SFW to NSFW and beyond. I don't believe in putting those types of things behind a pay-wall.

So, what is the patreon for? Well, more Exclusive™ things, I suppose. Wanna see WIPs and progress photos? Wanna get a sketch request every month? Wanna see sketchbook pages that no one else will ever see? How about doodles and future projects? Maybe get a commission discount? I'm planning on posting lots of fun stuff like that. Basically, my patrons will be able to actively participate in my artistic journey, as well as help support me in a direct manner.

So eyyyy, if you're into that, follow me down the rabbit hole.
If not, that's totally cool as well, and I appreciate your continued support through following my work.

Thanks a million, everyone.

Wanna help me survive uni while also supporting what I do? Well, this is a good way to do it. Any and all donations are appreciated, and I'll love you 5ever.

If you can't donate, it's cool! Just watching me is amazing, so thank you.


1000+ Watchers Feature: Spread the art Meme

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 5, 2017, 6:09 PM
The first ten couple dozen or so people to comment on this journal, I will put their avatar and the three deviations I like the most from their gallery on the list! 

If you comment, you have to make a journal like this and do the same thing, putting me in the first spot.

The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone! If you don't re-do it you will be taken off the list.

Gonna feature as many people as I can. Thanks for 1000+ watchers, everyone!

Lil' Artist Tips from Someone Who's Not An Artist

Journal Entry: Wed May 31, 2017, 6:42 PM
  1. Get out of your head
    • Learn by example. Look at references. Don't be afraid to take influence from others. Don't be afraid to try new things, or explore new ideas. Get uncomfortable. Get out of your comfort zone.
  2. Make plenty of art, and often
    • The more, the better. Don't worry about making it perfect. Focus on finishing it. Every piece is a learning experience, so make sure to see it through to the end. Finished, not perfect.
  3. Take breaks
    • Don't push yourself too hard. Art should be relaxing, fun, and enjoyable. The second it feels like work, take a break. Go outside. Eat something. Breathe.
  4. Stop comparing yourself to other people
    • Don't do it. Everyone has a different style, and is learning at their own pace.
  5. Don't think too hard.
    • Wanna do something? Do it. Don't second guess yourself. If you need to make a plan, then do that. You can always go back and fix it later.
  6. Get advice.
    • Getting critique may hurt, but it's the best way to improve. Don't be afraid of it. Take it to the head, not the heart.
  7. You're not perfect, and that's okay.
    • Work to be as good as you can, but realize your work will always have flaws. Learn from your mistakes, rather than repeating them.


BORN TO DIE / MOTIVATION IS A FUCK

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 22, 2017, 7:24 PM
無気力 TRASH IT ALL 1989
I AM HAVE NO MOTIVATION
410,757,864,530 DEAD IDEAS

Woooooo sonny, I have no idea what to write here, haha.
Like, I had an idea of what I wanted to say in terms of an update. I really did, but here I am, drinking crystal pepsi, and trying to justify writing another journal where I bitch and moan about losing the will to do much of anything.

Like, I could do that, but I don't want to. I used to be real open about my personal info, but I woke up and realized that was dumb.

S'pose I'm here to ask for help, I guess.

Let's get started, so apparently I posted a status a few days ago about needing to make a change. I don't remember posting this, so it was probably when I was sleep deprived and screaming at the walls at two in the morning, but that's not the point.
I do need a bit of a change, don't I? I've made a bunch of routines for myself that are wearing down on me, not just in life, but how I draw, too.
I haven't improved in years, as Mikomikisomi once said, and yeah, I guess that's true. I don't experiment much and thus have kept a pretty similar style of coloring despite trying to refine it, I fear starting new projects because I'm scared of failure, imperfection, and wasting time. I hate my stuff, and I'm beginning to hate what I do.

So, wow, that's not healthy. I may not like what I make, but I love what I do. It shouldn't tire me out.
So, what to do? Try something new. Routine getting you down? Break it. Find a new way to motivate yourself, begin again.

I'm not stopping what I'm doing. I'm not dropping any current or planned projects. I just need to find new ways to do things, and new ways to experiment and make things fun again.
This especially goes for my personal projects that I've been neglecting.

That's where you bodacious blokes come in.
What do you do when you have no motivation or inspiration?
Do you have any ways that you try to shake things up or hone your skills?
What should I try out or work towards changing?

I don't know, mate. I don't like bothering you guys with my personal shit, but I feel like this is something a lot of people can relate to, and I feel like you might have some good advice.

But when did the internet ever have any good ideas amirite?

Cheers.

Incompetent Request Stream Time (offline)

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 29, 2016, 1:29 PM
For those whose requests I did not get to, those who wanted to make a sketch request, or those who just wanted to watch me work, I'll be continuing this stream on Thursday or Friday.

While my stream always has an adult content warning, the general rating depends on what I'm drawing
Since this is a request stream, it all depends on what I'm asked to draw.


Be Cool, and Follow the Rules!
  1. Anyone can make a request, just so long as they're one of my watchers. Please only make a request if you actually like my stuff, not because you are just looking for free drawings.
  2. I've got my mic on and chat up, so feel free to chat with me or ask me stuff. I'm not the best at being engaging on my own.
  3. That's pretty much it... I don't know man.
See you in the stream!!

OI MATE, CHECK THESE PEOPLE OUT

Journal Entry: Tue May 24, 2016, 6:30 PM
I was planning on making this journal on my birthday, butfuckit i'm making it now because I was busy during my birthday week.

I don't give back to other people very much, do I? Nope, not really. I'm a busy person, and I try my very hardest to succeed in life. And by succeeding in life, I mean having a life outside of the internet. 
Anyway, I've been sitting on this idea for a while; I've wanted for a long time to feature a handful of people. Some are friends of mine, some I really admire as artists, and some are both.

...And that's enough of an explanation for me. Maybe I'll do a few more of these if I miss anyone, or start doing monthly features for my watchers, but right now I just want to give the spotlight to a few people who I think deserve it. Here they are in no particular order.

So go check 'em out, ye cheeky bastards. Give 'em hugs n' kisses from me.

Looking Back: Trading Leather in the Big Apple Pt1"Judge Roberts scores the bout 30-27 for the red corner."
'Not even one round!? Oh no! It's over, it's over.' Doubt crept into her mind as the clean sweep was announced by the unforgiving Judge Roberts .
"Judge Thomas scores the bout 29-28 for the blue corner."
'What? Th-that's me! I'm still in it? Did I do enough?' A light. A flicker of hope flashed in the recesses of her pessimistic mind.
The next five seconds that elapsed seemed to drone on forever. She could hear her heart thump rapidly inside her chest as her lungs failed her. The announcer drew up the microphone to announce the final judge's tally. She couldn't look.
"Judge Matthews scores the bout 29-28 for you winner by split decision...."
She clenched her fists inside her blue mitts, the anticipation mounting inside of her teetered on  the edge of an anxiety attack. She wanted to scream when suddenly she felt her arm being raised in the air.
"in the blue corner, Sabrina Linder!"
Joy. Pure and simple joy. Conventional

Yo Ho, On The Beach I Spot A Siren!This was the life for her! The salty water spraying all over her, the churning of her great vessel against the thick and hard waves, the shouting her men giving out orders, and all of it complete with a swing of a hearty ale. Ino Yamanaka loved this life and she wished it would never end.
…well, that would change if she didn’t get away from the navy pursuing her for the successful robbery of the nearby port. She felt pretty calm about the whole thing, given that she decided to grab a pint of ale before giving her men the orders to make head towards their secret island once they escape or disable their pursuers. No need to kill, the entire crew already had gained a terribly high bounty as it is.
Captain Ino tossed her mug overboard, not really caring about pollution. It was the 17th century after all, nobody cared if you threw diseased hacked-off limbs or a entire corpse overboard. She rather drunkenly wandered over to a cannon and watched as her crew loaded it up. Ino reach
The Night Life Of A Witch Bitch“Abraca-damn, bruh!”
Such powerful vocabulary shook the bull-headed, bear-bodied creature to the point where it didn’t know how to react to it. Should he go with a insult or ignore it? Thus he became a easy target for his attacker to blow out his brains with a 5.56 round. Without his brains or his head attached to his body, the bloody body fell to the ground and promptly vanished in a puff of black smoke.
Naomi let out a haughty little laugh as she loaded up the next shot to deal with the demon’s buddies. But they wised up and teleported off back to hell. Naomi licked her lips in annoyance. She REALLY wanted to see if she could beat her record tonight for consecutive headshots of five. They were six tonight, but only two went down. Great, she pondered to herself. At this rate, I’m going to put myself out of business.
The half-canine lady peered at her watch and her eyes nearly shot out of the sockets. It gotten pretty late, later than she expected! She wou
A Night At The CircusIn the grassy clearing outside Hundredville, a old and tattered circus started to set up. Kids from the nearby school watched from behind the fence as the moth-infested tents got set up and the sounds of dilapidated music boxes filled the air. Most people would take a good look at the circus and turn away, but the prices were low and it had good reviews.
Eight-year old Jessie begged her parents to take out for at least on evening on Saturday. It took coaxing and begging, but after her mom earned free tickets at work the three went to see the wonders of Fantisma Circus.
The grounds of the circus were nothing special. Grass and tents with various machines all over. The air didn’t just have the familiar tracks of the circus, but also the hum of the generators keeping the lights on. Her parents raised their eyebrows on the quality and safety of the circus, but Jessie danced by herself as they went through the grounds.
A sizeable crowd had gathered around the main tent, and eventually
500 Words: Tiana/CharlotteSo what if that Prince never came? So what if that ball got cancelled?
She still looked gorgeous!
Charlotte downed her third rum and rye shot. Tiana sighed and approached her good friend while cleaning a bigger glass. “I prefer cooking to bartending you know.” Tiana whispered.
“I’m fine, Tia.” Charlotte managed to say without slurring her words. “Tomorrow will just be yet another day without anything special in it. So I can get tanked without consequences!”
“Save for the headaches caused by both your hangover and your daddy blowing your ears off.” Tiana sighed before saying the next part without really thinking: “You know, no man wants drunkard.” Before Tiana could apologize, Charlotte looked up with a silly smile on her face.
“Yeah?” Charlotte bobbed her head up and down, trying to get her brain to work. “Then perhaps I should look for a woman then!”
“Lottie, think about that for a sec.

OI MATE, WHAT CAN I DO WITH YOUR SHIT

Journal Entry: Mon May 16, 2016, 1:56 PM
Good question, mate.
I get this question from commissioners, website owners, and people that just want to casually cross post my stuff.

Honestly, I don't care what you do as long as I get credit, somewhere.

More specifically, if you commissioned it, it's yours to do with as you please, just so long as you're not redistributing it or repackaging it to sell on your own time, and as long as I'm given credit somewhere.

I come across a lot of people who want to post the stuff they commissioned from me on their page. No need to ask, mate, go right ahead. All I ask is that you write in the description "art by Following-The-Rabbit", and whatever the fuck else you want to say.

For other things, it kind of depends. Like, if you want to use any of my drawings as a thumbnail or an avatar, or put it in a video, I pretty much just need credit somewhere. 

Got something else in mind? Well, ask me about it, and I'll tell it to you straight.

Was this journal useless? Yep! I just get this question a lot, so I figured I'd just have something to link people to.

Alright, I've got work to do and an interview tomorrow. Have a good day, mate.


too lazy and tired to make a full update

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 23, 2015, 6:16 PM
I got back from the hospital on Saturday, and I'm doing as well as I can.

I'll spare you the personal details, but I'm out, and that's all that matters to me.

Now I have two exams tomorrow, so I need to rest up kthx

ps, thank you so much for the overwhelming amount of support both on here and on my tumblr; It was really something to come home to, and I appreciate it more than you all probably realize. <3

This isn't Alice, this is her friend Kody. Alice is currently in the hospital here on campus, and wanted me to update you all on the matter. No news on when she'll be let out, but it hasn't been the happiest of times. If you don't get any news for a little bit, that's why. I'm sure once she's out and ready you will all know, but until then, there's the story. She's not in any bad condition, something just kind of happened last night, and she wasn't in the right state of mind. Keep Alice in your thoughts, and have a good day.

lol personal matters

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 14, 2015, 5:53 PM
Shit happens. That's going to be the main theme of this journal.

This journal is also going to be full of complete shit that doesn't involve any of you, but I get a surprising amount of questions about where I am, what the hell is going on, and why I may not be talking to anyone. It may come across as bitter, but that's not my intention; This is just me evaluating my problems, and clearing up my inactivity and the fact that I haven't been talking to anyone.

So, I could say that I started college a month ago, which I did. Am I bogged down with work? Not really? Like, it's nothing I can't handle. But yeah, what am I doing in between? I mean, I brought drawing supplies like copics, watercolors, pencils, what have you. I should be drawing, but I'm not.

Haha well long story. I've brought up my personal issues here before. Y'know, I've got severe depression and anxiety, and suddenly my doctor is bringing up bi polar disorder, and this is all sprinkled in with a delightful concoction of self-hatred and suicidal tendencies. I really don't like going into detail at all, but I figured it's something you guys should probably know as I continue forward with this.

So it's been getting worse
yeah i mean, if you want the short answer, you could stop reading here.

To elaborate, all these changes in my life have lead to my generally low mood being, well, lower. I never feel like doing anything, I don't want to be near anyone up here (Even the handful of my friends who actually came here), I stay in bed most of the time. Yeah, it's not good. I try to do things that make me happy, but that just ends up backfiring.

Art is a huge part of that. I pick up my sketchbook, I try to draw, I hate it, and I don't feel any better. I have shit confidence in my drawings lately, and I just end up not doing it because there are people who can do better, anyway. Why try, you know? It doesn't help that I don't have many motivators to draw, either. I've tried entering contests, but with a lit of entries, I just end up putting what I've got to the side because I hate it so much. I end up hating what I do, and I end up hating myself even more because of it.

So yeah, I've kind of regressed a bit; I've gotten back into my habit of going for days (as opposed to hours) without food, taking xanax almost daily to avoid the possibility of having anxiety attacks in public, and having panic attacks at night.

Oh yeah, and the whole suicide thing.
Last night was the first time in a while that I came close to killing myself in a while. Like wow, seriously thinking about it is one thing, but taking out the ingredients for a cocktail of sleeping pills and alprazolam and thinking "fuck it, I don't really have to deal with this if I don't want to", that's another ball park.

But of course, I've got too much shit to do, right? I can't afford to do that. I've got to study brain activity, write lab reports, and do college shit, right? I mean, I already paid to be here.

I disgust even myself.

So yeah, I figured I should put some sort of update out there. I've had a lot of baggage to carry lately, and I need to sort myself out.

tldr: What am I doing? Dealing with my own shit.
