Rant about the lupisvulpes community
Disclaimer Nothing here is to cause drama or directed at anyone specific, i want people to be AWARE of their actions and how shitty people treat each other in this community. This isn't against Lupis herself i respect her as an artist and she hasn't done anything bad to hurt people etc. This isnt hate on lup, this is more of a rant of her community. THIS IS MY EXPERIENCE WITHIN THIS COMMUNITY. Please note: this isnt gonna be fancy shit, im bad with grammar and writing im like 2 yrs old By far this has been one of the worst communities i have ever came across, all the people in this community are so hateful and greedy and with absolutely back

if anyone asks - yes, i'm streaming, but i finally wrote this up during my small breaks c: anyways: slightly late, but happy new year, everyone! may 2016 be better than 2015 ever was :") MAY DONALD TRUMP NEVER BE ELECTED PRESIDENT OR VICE PRESIDENT OR PLAY A ROLE IN THE WHITE HOUSE AFTER THIS YEAR'S ELECTIONS JFC

before i continue, i'd just like to say a quick thank you to everyone who's stuck with me through all my dumb shit and giggles and antics last year. you guys are the best, and i wouldn't be who i am now without all your support. 

also thank you for 7k+ watchers?!? h o w 

im just kind of a potato here rlly (i swear i'll do a raffle once my todo list lightens up ahh)

:iconsweatsnervously4plz:

i started 2015 out with so much motivation that i laugh a bit when i realize that it went down the drain halfway through the year. while i did accomplish many of the academia-related goals i set for myself in 2015, i went and fucked up with my art goals. it was probably bound to happen with the amount of art i churned out in 2014, but i'm still disappointed in the amount of potential i had and didn't fulfill (although i couldn't do anything about my busy summer) and the amount of deadlines i kept on missing because i just couldn't push through. even with that being said, though, i did manage to fulfill some of the resolutions i set for myself last year, so that's something www

in 2015, i resolved to: 
- continue to post something at least once a month! (so i can successfully complete the year summary sob)
    ✗ | this failed miserably and i had to go off 12 pieces of work that summarized my year instead

- attempt pixelling at least once this year ; Q ; 
    ✗ | i don't think this will be happening in 2016 either

- keep on drawing more backgrounds, especially foliage and foresty and CITYSCAPES jfc
    ✓ | a bit of a mixed response: i did foliage, foresty, and somewhat cityscape backgrounds, but not as much as i'd like :")

- DRAW A SHITTON OF SENGOKU BASARA FANART
    ✗ | i just. didn't have that much time and i had (still have) so many fanart ideas. i did apply for ACEN 2016, and might get to work on more fanart if i do get off the waiting list!

- have more artworks with people having their eyes opened and not closed
    ✓ | a bit self explanatory with my 2015 art summary, as compared to my 2014 art summary! although i did have an eye style crisis as a result.

- be happier with / prouder of my art.
    / | i'm a bit better off than i was at this time last year, but there's still room for improvement. c:

in 2016, i hope to:
- go for more architecture in addition to my normal nature/sky backgrounds in my artwork :c cafes, bedrooms, living rooms, all that jazz.

- learn how to draw certain types of flowers and foliage properly /ERUGH/

Non respexerunt | more more more the world must know about my bbs (in all seriousness though, i hope to acquaint you all with my characters from my original work Non respexerunt more this year!)

- paint faster without losing artwork quality so i can draw what i want to faster.

- work on perspective, different lighting, anatomy, expressions, poses, and colour choices! basically everything lmao

- be more optimistic about my art. i'm a bit better than where i was this time last year in regards to how i felt about my own art, but as they say, there's always room for improvement.

feel free to share your new year's resolutions below c: i'd love to see what you all are hoping to accomplish this year!
