Promoting Positivity: Vol 126Group Master List | @PromotingPositivity | Group Guidelines* * * *Hello everyone! Welcome to another Promoting Positivity. In this series, we will have three sections: @PromotingPositivity news, event advertisements, and peer support. Please take a look and see if there's anything you like. Feel free to comment with anything you want featured next week. With that out of the way, let's get started.Current @PromotingPositivity News6/29/22Welcome back! June really did come and go super fast! Unfortunately, this is the last Promoting Positivity volume and content for June. This is also your final reminder that you have until 11:59PM on June 30th (EST) to submit content to the Pride Folder, even if I don't vote on it (as long as it was submitted). There will be a feature for all submissions so be sure to submit by tomorrow. Unrelated to the group, but still positivity: If my calculations are correct, we'll be getting new seniors either Friday or Saturday so look forward to that. It's always exciting to see awesome deviants being recognized. Whoever they are, please be respectful and congratulate them when they are announced. Feel free to suggest new seniors here or, if you're new to it, learn about Senority here. In addition, Deviousness is announced on the 1st of each month, so go here to suggest for that. For more information on Deviousness, go here and here.With all that said and done, let's get into the final Pride Month 2022 content for Promoting Positivity (the series) and @PromotingPositivity (the group)! See you in July! Recent @PromotingPositivity ContentGroup content is typically posted Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday, this series being one of them. However, if we have unusual content, important content, or affiliates collaboration, then they will be posted here as well. This is so that you don't miss the other group content posted. Check all group content ever posted at the Master List. Positive Feature: Vol 92 Positive Comment: Vol 261New Deviants FeatureA small feature showcasing up to 4 new deviants (having joined within less than 1 year), featuring 1 artwork each. This is only applicable if they have posted something within the month so that I know they are active. Note: I will only feature individuals who are active (unless suggested), so if I skipped someone, it is because they were inactive when I was meant to include them. They can still be included if they meet the following criteria: they are new to DeviantArt, their account is still less than a year old, they are active, and they haven't been featured here before because I skipped them. All suggestions should be individuals that I have skipped, which means that they are over 1 month old. , Warning: At least one of these deviants has somewhat mature content. View at your own risk.Community NewsA list of events ranging from competitions to updates, all positive in some way.

Unfortunately, Pride Month is almost over. Be sure to submit to the Pride Month Folder before it's too late so you can be included in the feature. As I've discussed before, we are still looking for submissions to the Gemstone Awards. We only have two recipient suggestions and one judge, so we'll need more of both. I'm so excited to get started. I've also changed the language for judges because it may seem like they are expected to do many things at once when I meant that they need to contribute at least one, so please be sure to check them out. Sorry for the misunderstanding, if any. We will start the Gemstone Awards when we have 5 potential recipients and 2-3 more judges so avoid gridlock. Now that I have completed the rainbow of emotes, let's get into the article.

I hope you are all having a wonderful Pride Month. Given that it is Pride Month, our Pride Folder is still open for all your LGBTQIA+ needs so be sure to submit before the month is over so that you can be featured! We've had some awesome updates recently around DA, which you will see below. However, we are still in need of much more activity for the Gemstone Awards. I will personally be contacting individuals soon so that I can speed the process up. But if you are interested, please check out the 'd and underlined text above as it contains a link to the project and will explain what it is and how to participate. Thank you to @Malintra-Shadowmoon for the suggestions/reminder contributions related to the recent DA news. I am so excited to share it below as some real changes are occurring. While I know change is hard, I think it's important to understand that change is often good. So I hope you will join me in celebrating the new changes in the DA community.

Official Group Projects
Promoting Positivity: The Gemstone AwardsMaster List | @PromotingPositivity | Group Guidelines* * * *The Gemstone AwardsAboutThe Gemstone Awards are gifted to individuals in the community who have worked to spread positivity in some way. Each type of award represents one type of community service and is meant to both honor these deviants and provide awareness so that other deviants who may not know about the awesome content being hosted on DeviantArt can find out.There are three Gemstone Awards: Diamond Deviants, Green Greats, and Quartz Crystals. They are based on the gem badges -- diamond, emerald, and quartz -- a deviant can give someone else by using fragments. Each one provides a different 'service' to the awardees and has different expectations to meet its requirements. These awards are based on other deviants' suggestions and the merit of the deviant being suggested. That means anyone can suggest someone and judges will ultimately decide based on the evidence provided in the suggestion applications who will be featured and when. To suggest someone, go to Suggesting Awardees. To apply to be a judge, go to Become a Judge. Important Note: These rules are subject to adjustment as this project is still in a trial period and some things might not work. If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, feel free to comment below. Award ProcessAll potential recipients will be notified of their selection at the start of the process and will be given time to respond and discuss the expectations of receiving the award in question. This is because they will be asked to participate in an interview and feature, which will take time to complete. Potential recipients will receive a note from one of the judges titled "PP: Gemstone Awards Recipient", which will have the details of which award they would receive, why they were selected, who selected them (if they choose not to remain anonymous), and (for Emerald and Diamond) either a date or general time frame for when they have to respond to questions for an interview and choose deviations for the feature. This process is meant to be negotiable to accommodate for the recipients schedules and dates can be changed. Awards are expected to be presented either every month or every few months. Presentation of awards may vary.Opting Out of the AwardsAnyone who is chosen to receive any of the awards has the choice to opt out. These awards are to celebrate achievements and under no circumstances are they to be forced on any of the potential recipient. Deviants who would like to permanently opt out of this award series should simply note the group and request to opt out. To make this easier, please title your note "Gemstone: Total Opt-Out". Deviants who do this will be added to a list of deviants who will not receive any of the Gemstone Awards. Deviants who opted out in the past may ask to opt back in at any time. Simply send a new note and title it "Gemstone: Opt In". The deviant's name will be removed from the list as soon as possible.More Important InformationThese awards are to celebrate achievements and celebrate growth, encourage positivity, and bring awareness to various outstanding deviants and their efforts. These awards are not:To be used as anything else other than what they were specifically designed for; positive community effort.To be used as a prize in contests.To be bought or sold.To be bribed from a judge.To be abused or given to deviants who faked achievements in order to obtain and abuse them.official DeviantArt content, like Deviousness Award.Please do not fight with the judges about who receives awards. You may argue your case if you think a recipient has failed to meet the expectations of the award or has abused the award in some way. We appreciate and acknowledge individuals who contact us because a recipient abuses the award. If you believe a recipient has done this, please contact the groups with a note titled "Gemstone: Abuse" so we can handle it quietly without drama. Please do not start drama over the awards. They are meant to spread positivity, not cause negativity. Thank you. Types of AwardsDiamond Deviants ,Recipients will receive a Diamond Badge and the Diamond Award. The badge will be received at the location most significant to their efforts.This award is for highly respected deviants with immense community efforts. This award comes with an adjustable interview and feature to share their achievements and improve visibility so that others are made aware and seek them out. Recipients who accept this award may not opt-out of the interview and feature, but they can alter the interview and feature to be bigger or smaller to fit their specific agenda.Recipients may only receive the Diamond Deviants Award once, but they are applicable to receive the other Gemstone Awards if they fit the criteria.Sample of Award:,Green Greats,Recipients will receive an Emerald Badge and the Emerald Award. The badge will be received at a location that is significant to their efforts.This award is for up-and-coming community stars whose positive efforts may not be well known or just starting out. The point of the award is to draw attention to their efforts, so they may not opt out of the interview or feature as it would be counterproductive.Recipients who accept this award may not opt-out of interviews and features but can ask for specific questions in the interview and choose which deviations are featured.Recipients may only receive the Emerald Award once per year, but they are applicable to receive the other Gemstone Awards if they fit the criteria.Sample of Award:,Quartz Crystals ,Recipients will receive a Quartz Badge and the Gold Award. The badge will be received at the location of their choosing. This award is for general positive individuals who may not have concrete evidence of their positive nature but have been recommended frequently, usually by 10 or more individuals. Recipients who accept this award may opt out of the interview and feature if they choose. If they decide to opt out, their deeds will still be listed in the description of the award itself.Recipients may receive the Gold Award every 4 months, but they are applicable to receive the other Gemstone Awards if they fit the criteria.Sample of Award:,Get InvolvedThere are two ways to get involved. Suggesting awardees and apply to become a judge. Suggesting AwardeesTo suggest awardees, copy/paste these questions and add your answers into a note to the group. If you have trouble understanding and writing English or have concerns, please comment below and we will have someone converse with you in your native language so that we don’t have any miscommunications. The type of award is subject to change. For example, if a potential recipient was originally suggested to be a Quartz Crystal but falls under a Green Great, then the type of award will be changed to fit. The application is solely meant to help us understand the perspective of the suggester and help us determine if a recipient qualifies. The award type will be decided through a discussion between judges based solely on what each type of award entails.No self-suggestions allowed. Additionally, please keep track of who you have suggested before, so we don’t accidentally get confused. You may suggest one individual for each badge only once a year. If your suggestion is awarded one of the badges, please wait a year to suggest them again. Please ensure honesty when submitting suggestion to the form. Become a JudgeThe Judge Application requires you to copy/paste these questions and add your answers into a note to the group. If you have trouble understanding and writing English or have concerns, please comment below and we will have someone converse with you in your native language so that we don’t have any miscommunications. Judges are expected be able to contribute more than just their opinions. We know that only Core members regularly receive fragments, so contributing badges might be harder. If you can contribute immensely in other categories, then you can still be considered. Judges must contribute in at least one of the ways: voting on recipients, donating badges, creating interviews, or posting interviews. Judges are not expected to contribute all of these requirements, only what they can as long as they can do at least one. When applying, potential judges are expected to include what they can contribute so that when recipients are chosen, they can be called upon. This is to avoid confusion and can be changed later if judges want to contribute more, less, or something else.Please ensure honesty when submitting suggestion to the form.

PromotingPositivity: New Year, New Perspective!Hello everyone! This is a journal for @PromotingPositivity. As the founder and creator, I am the one who built the group and has had most of the control over what happens, something I aim to fix because that was never the aim for this group. I hope that my intentions will be clear. Let me know if there are any issues I haven't noticed. Recently, I have been searching for new members and doing my best to make sure that the group functions as best as possible. However, I have realized that not everything is on par given that with new members, new issues have arisen. Part of the issue is that I have a tendency to be too controlling. Another issues is my atypical brain making things harder to understand for others. That is why I need your help. I want to discuss the current situation happening and go deeper to discuss the different sections of the group. I feel that a lot of questions need to be answered and so I hope to get as many perspectives as possible. You don't need to respond to everything, but I will be providing an index for each part to make it easier to find what you want to comment on. Just click any one of the links below to be teleported to the appropriate section. INDEXGallery Submission Rules Weekly Blog Activity and Events Front Page Layout and Design Basic Expectations for the Group Summary Please read and answer the questions you want in bold with the question first and answer second so it's easier for me to understand what you are answering. Thank you. This journal is to discuss recent updates, potential ideas, and open suggestions from everyone. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to leave them below. Please as blunt and clear as you can so that I understand exactly what you are saying. Let's get started. , GALLERY SUBMISSION RULESFor the current group guidelines, including gallery guidelines, go here: ,Promoting Positivity: Group GuidelinesSeptember 27, 2020Group Guidelines | Group History | Admin Team |Currently, the main separation with submissions is with posts and art, with community content having a folder under one label "Articles, Features, News, Etc" and "Contest, Challenges, Giveaways, Raffles, Etc". I also included "Let's Discuss" for controversial content. There are also plenty of subfolders so that DD Roundups and Dark Themes have a place for organization and inclusion. Additionally, every folder requires voting for submissions. At this time, if submissions are submitted incorrectly, we ask that they are resubmitted appropriately. That has led to many issues and I want to find solutions. But it could be better. Part of the issue could be the terminology is confusing. Another issues could be the layout of the journal. I want to know your thoughts on what could be improved. Please respond to the following in the comments with the QUESTION FIRST and YOUR ANSWER second so it's easier for me to reference it later:Would "News and Features" and "Community Events" work better?Would creating automatic-submission folders for Community, CV, and Staff where the submissions are then moved into the appropriate folders by admins be better? (This would make more work for admins.)Would it be smarter to forgo Community/CV/Staff folders and instead open certain folders to automatic voting and just move any incorrect submissions to the right folder later? Would "hiring" volunteer admins solely to vote help? Would anyone be open to doing this?What would you suggest to make submissions and the gallery more efficient?, WEEKLY BLOG ACTIVITY AND EVENTSThe next issue is in-group contest and events. I submit content to the group's blog multiple times per week and only one of them has consistently had suggestions (I have encouraged suggestions for all group content). I also currently have a contest going on that no one has entered despite having 2 months to compete AND a previous failed attempt of the contest earlier last year. I have been trying to find more individuals to also submit unique positive content to the blog, but it's been a slow-going process because I have yet to receive a response from two potential candidates. I also also been told that I submit too much, which might be fair since I submit 4,5/7 times per week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and sometimes Sunday), leaving Tuesday and Thursday open. My hope was that other deviants would submit content so that even if I continue to submit often (2-3 days per week), the content would vary and members and visitors could pick what they want to view. I was also hoping that this contest would be a big hit considering it is open for multiple types of artists (drawing and writing). It is just the first in the series and with it already having failed once, I will have to take a different approach if it fails again. Not even adding more prizes as incentive has worked. The contest in question is here and ends on January 25th: ,Positive Messages Contest: Part 1November 19, 2021Greetings! :wave: As some of you know, IPlease respond to the following in the comments with the QUESTION FIRST and YOUR ANSWER second so it's easier for me to reference it later:Is the current blog content schedule too much? How much do you want to see?What kind of content would you want to see in the blog?How can the blog get more attention (and suggestions) on the current content, especially "Positive Comment" and "Promoting Positivity"?What types of events would be interested in joining and what sort of rules would make it more appealing to join? What prizes would you be interested in winning? What could we do to make group content more fun to participate in?, FRONT PAGE LAYOUT AND DESIGNThe front page used to be a lot more cluttered. So I recently redesigned it to make it more clear and manageable. I don't currently know if I have succeeded. It started off cluttered with a lot of the same info appearing in multiple places. Now, I have adjusted it to make the links to Group Guidelines and Master List (which includes all official group content since submitting a blog to the gallery became impossible) stand out, and included the group's mission statement, admin openings, weekly schedule, donations, and awards. But is it enough? The comments have always been closed because I wanted to keep it neat and we have a folder for advertisements, so I didn't want anyone posting their commissions or adoptables down there. I also included a monthly feature to reward suggesters called "Positive People". Finally, all the other pieces like investors (members, admin) and affiliates, countdown for events, etc are available and labeled concisely. However, I can't help but feel I'm missing things. That's why I need your help. Please respond to the following in the comments with the QUESTION FIRST and YOUR ANSWER second so it's easier for me to reference it later:Can you find everything you need to know how the group functions?Does everything make sense? Is it orderly and fair to you?What do you think would improve the overall look of the front page?What would make the page feel more inviting? What would improve your interactions with the group?, BASIC EXPECTATIONS FOR THE GROUPOne thing I worry about immensely is the expectations of others. Between my mental disabilities and the language barriers of only knowing English, I often second-guess myself and if I have been able to reach out to people in the right way. With the influx of issues as of late, I'm even more worried than usual that I'm doing things wrong. I want to be able to connect with people positively and make a place for everyone, not just myself. I decided that with a new year, it was time to question if I have succeeded in this group's mission. Metaphorically speaking, I think I'm on the right general path, but it feels like I've gotten caught in many holes and branches in the way. Heaven forbid I run into bandits (trolls or other unruly deviants who seek to make things more difficult) along the way and that turns into a bigger mess. There are so many deviants who could try to destroy this place I've built for good, so I'm at a loss for how to be inclusive while also not letting the nasty side of the DeviantArt community make a mess of things. That's part of the reason submissions require voting. But I want to find a solution that works for everyone. Metaphors aside, I want to be able to be able to come to an agreement with others. I want everyone to have a full understanding of what this group is and what everyone wants it to be. I think as time goes on, I have developed this unnecessary need to control everything. While a certain amount of control is good (because having good leadership will keep things working smoothly), having too much control is not because it gets in the way of self, creativity, and intent. So, I want the members to have far more control over the environment of this group. I want members to dictate more of what happens. We now have over 200 members -- whether some of them are active or not doesn't really matter to me right now -- and it isn't fair that I call all the shots. DeviantArt IS a melting pot of artistic ingenuity. While I cannot promise that everything in this group will go exactly as everyone wants it too, I do want the members to have more of a say. I think deep down I was waiting until DeviantArt was more stable to ask for this sort of thing. I know that not everyone is happy with Eclipse and so many of my friends have left or might leave. So, for the ones who actually want to participate, I hope you will. I also hope that if I mess up and make mistakes, you call me out. I am thankful to the awesome people who do call me out constantly (I'm talking about the awesome @Malintra-Shadowmoon, @LualaDy and @Valognir especially). They reminded me of my control freak tendencies (seriously, Malintra, I am so grateful to you) and given me different perspectives (LualaDy's humanitarian and environmental perspectives are a breath of fresh air and Valognir's tech-savvy nature is so helpful). These three have been truly helpful and I hope that by giving them a shout out, they not only keep it up but it also encourages more awesome deviants in doing the same. The point is we all have unique feelings and perspectives and each one deserves to shine in some way. I am more than willing to have a deep discussion with anyone because I want this group to be for anyone. I don't know how to make that more clear than outright saying it. I'm open to feedback every day, so feel free to reach out at any time.Please respond to the following in the comments with the QUESTION FIRST and YOUR ANSWER second so it's easier for me to reference it later:What would make this group better for you? What has been hard for you now and in the past?Are you willing to have a conversation with me and/or the other admins? What communication application works for you (i.e. Discord, DA Chats, DA Notes, email, etc)?What rules would you change and why?What changes to DeviantArt groups would you want to be included in the Eclipse version? What parts of groups would you want to keep? What would you want to lose?Have any of your expectations been met? What expectations haven't and what would you do to change that if you were in charge (if it is currently possible)?, SUMMARYWith a new year, I wanted to have a deeper look at @PromotingPositivity and make any changes with the involvement of its members. I feel that only by being inclusive to everyone, the evolution of this group will be headed in the correct direction. I have left questions for each members/viewer to answer. Please respond with the QUESTION FIRST and ANSWER AFTER so that I have a proper reference. I hope that this will open up the way to making this group a place for everyone to promote positivity. Thank you to everyone who has been a part of the journey thus far and to everyone who joins us in the future. Sincerely,The Ace: @RTNightmare | Rachel
PromotingPositivity: Admin Openings!Hello! At @PromotingPositivity, we like it when deviants spread as much positivity as possible. Whether that means submitting artwork to the gallery, participating in journal features, or coming up with projects to submit to the group, we fully encourage it. ,While not all of these require admin privileges, a lot of them do. And if there is one thing that this group strives for, it's a lot of positive interaction. Admins ensure this group functions so that members enjoy their time here. The deviants who make up the admin team always start out as Jacks. But they can rise through the ranks based on their level of interaction within the group and how positive they are. ,That being said, we don't require admins to be at the group's beck and call. We have various admins do various tasks, from locating content that can be submitted to the group gallery to creating group projects for members to enjoy. There are several types of mods, which the Official Admin Team post goes further into. For now, I'll just explain the titles and you can use the link above to check them out if you are interested:Community ModeratorGeneral ModeratorProject ManagerProject SupervisorProject EditorAdvertisement SpecialistLanguage SpecialistIf there is one thing I firmly believe in, it is that you can't have too much positivity. So, I want to extend a hand out to any deviants who thinks they can make @PromotingPositivity a better place.

While the other positions do indeed need to be filled as well, they aren't as much of a priority. ,You might have seen these listed before.

:CHIBI RAFFLE GIVEAWAY: by elliethevtuber
Once Upon a Time: Folk Lore ContestNow open! Link your entries in the comments here!For my birthday at the end of June, I'll be hosting a folk lore/traditional literature contest! When you hear “traditional literature,” you might think of stodgy old books, with nigh-unreadable prose for the modern reader. But you might be surprised to learn that you’ve probably been reading traditional literature since you were a kid! Traditional literature is the body of stories and poems that have been passed down from generation to generation: fairy tales, myths, and fables are all types of traditional literature. Folk traditions in storytelling are both unique and universal. Many folklore stories from across the world share the same tropes, but use the story teller’s culture as a backdrop for the tale. Compare “The Rough-Faced Girl,” “Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters,” and “The Irish Cinder Lad.” They’re all versions of the French Cinderella story, but come from the Algonquin Nation, Zimbabwe, and Ireland, respectively. Read more about traditional literature and folk traditions here: ,IIntroduction to Traditional LiteratureWhat is Traditional Literature? When you hearFor this contest, I want you to create your own folk stories! Myths, legends, folk tales, fairy tales, and tall tales are all fair game! The contest will run from June 1, 2022 to August 31, 2022. Submit your work by leaving a comment on this journal or sending it to me in a note. Rules: Link to this journal in your artist's description when you submit your story. Prose only, with a limit of 10,000 words. This is a hard limit. All work must be your own. You can collaborate with another person if you want, but that person must be credited in the story's description, and you will both have to split the prizes. Any plagiarized work will be disqualified and reported. Older work you've already written is accepted, but new stories are preferred. You can add a preview image to your story, but it will not affect your score in any way. The story will be judged based on writing only. Be excellent to each other, and party on dudes. Tips: I wrote that Introduction to Traditional Lit. specifically to help you for this contest. I recommend you read it. Don't be afraid to get weird with it! Show me a fairy tale in space, an origin myth set in the Old West, whatever you want! Proofread, proofread, proofread! If you already have a story of your own, particularly fantasy and sci-fi, it's okay to create some mythology or folk tales that come from the universe of your story, too! Or any universe, really. I'm just looking for some fun stories. Any questions, just ask! I don't bite. Much. Drink some water you beautiful and capable but dehydrated storyteller, you. Prizes: Yes, the part I know you've just scrolled down to read. I am accepting prize donations, which will be added here as well. First Prize: 1 Diamond Badge, 500 points, 1 critique on a written piece of work (if desired), 2 character intros/sketches or poems (or one of each), and 1 feature from me. An elevenate poem on a topic of their choice from @Malintra-Shadowmoon Second Prize: 1 Emerald Badge, 250 points, 1 critique on a written piece of work (if desired), 1 character intro/sketch or poem, and 1 feature from me An elevenate poem on a topic of their choice from @Malintra-Shadowmoon Third Prize:1 Quartz Badge, 125 points, 1 critique on a written piece of work (if desired), 1 feature from me An elevenate poem on a topic of their choice from @Malintra-Shadowmoon Random Winner: One random participant will receive a Quartz Badge, 50 points, and a poorly drawn bird, courtesy of @IDrawShittyBirds (aka my alt account).

PromotingPositivity: Support the Uk-Ru VictimsIt's Friday everyone! And I apologize for the wait. But I'm finally be posting what I can for Ukrainian support. Please know that this will be edited and updated when applicable. I will probably make a deviation so that I can notify watchers. I wanted to do this in sections. If a journal is in the wrong place, let me know. I wanted to get this done, so I may have put them in the wrong place in a hurry. I also plan to add a lot more when I have the time. All the content in this journal can be found in this Helping Hands folder. I will be posting this to my personal page and @PromotingPositivity's blog. Feel free to add this journal to any groups. The more this information spreads, the more help the victims of this war will get. Comment below if you have suggestions to add to this feature.

Can I be as good artist as my idols?Many people looks at art as it is something you have to born with some kind of natural talent for it – like it is being decided in the womb you will be an excellent artist or you will be born with wooden hands and doomed to adore art, but unable to do it.And then when someone starts their art journey, giving it a try, they suddenly facing with the fact: they are the ones who were born with wooden hands – and this feeling heighten when they look at their idols art and then the question comes:“Will I ever be this good?”And their answer is “Probably no.” and that’s it. Accepting it as an unchangeable fact and move on.But the thing is, the answer is actually a “yes”.Wait, what???Yep, it is a yes. Wanna know why? Because art is a skill, not talent. No-one was born with perfect eye-brain-muscle relationship and just draw in a very high level at 5 years old. What is the difference between us and our idols? Hint: no, it’s not talent.But what talent is?I personally don’t consider talent as “talent”, I don’t consider it as a gift. “Talent” for me is a way how the brain works. Some people a bit better in languages, some people easier understanding maths and some people faster with things like forms and perspective. They just process it a tiny bit faster, it comes a bit more natural to them and suddenly it feels like they don’t have to work for their successes. The thing is: this teeny-tiny hint won’t solve their problems. They still need to practice a lot to achieve their goals.Okay, but what is the difference between me and them if it is not “talent”?That’s an easy one! It’s time. They started to work – seriously work – on their skill earlier than us, therefore they covered a bigger amount of journey by this point. There is no big secret, hidden hotline of soul-trade for skill to Satan, leave that goat alone and was the pentagram off the walls. You need to start practice, like seriously practice to progress and sooner you start, the sooner you will achieve your desired level. Your idols simply started their work sooner.Ain’t have time for practice! I am too old for it anyway – I should start it as a kid!And that’s simply not true. Learning is not a luxury you can only do when you are a kid. Adults can learn new things – moreover they need to learn new things! We need to keep our brain in shape or else.... well our brain won’t be happy. It is like exercising the muscles, but you cannot lift up weights with your brain (well, unless you are a telepath). The brain’s exercise is learning. Yes, you don’t have the luxury of focusing only on art, because you have to work to live, buy food, pay bills, but there is no rush at all: you can go in your own pace, you will still reach your goals.But I cannot attend to art college...You don’t need to. This is the 21th century: everything is online. The internet is not only just for Facebook and Instagram, there are tons of study material in every possible topic – all online and all of those just an arm-length away! You can learn languages, science, history, music even on your own and art is the part of the package! The YouTube is so full off free videos about the fundamentals of drawing; there are interviews with artist giving advices to beginners, tips, tricks, all online! And if you need some structure: online art courses are God sent! They are less cheap than art college and they are as good as art college. (Okay, minus building connections, but you can learn everything on your own, at home from a pro for cheaper, than art tuition. Plus you can go in your own space.)Let’s take me for example.Everything I know of art, from Photoshop, trough pixeling to drawing and painting comes from the online world. I learned all the PS from online trough freaking tutorials (back then there weren’t PS videos at all, I am talking about written tutorials. In English. Only in English. So I needed to learn English as well) My ongoing drawing fundamentals are coming from various sources: fellow artists, Discord groups, YouTube videos and online art courses. Pixels are coming from 2 written tutorials and observation. Painting: observation again, meaning me watching my idol’s stream and watching speedpaint videos. And I realized I wanna learn at 1,5 years ago: that means I was 30 that time around. I do not draw since I was 5.,My progress as an adult, started 1,5 years ago - at age of 30.Do not give up! Do not accept the fact you were born this way and you cannot do art on the level you wanna do. Refuse the lie you cannot learn new things. Art is a skill, therefore it can be learned. It is just matter of time and practice.

What made you proud of yourself today?I will be a hummingbirdThe hummingbird in Wangari Maathai's story emerges as a heroic symbol of doing the best one can even in the face of overwhelming and insurmountable odds. ,Our lives have been drastically changed in the recent months and will probably be different in the foreseeable future in unprecedented ways. It is so easy during this time of uncertainty and tension to be overtaken by stress and negative thinking. And though we understand that the need of the hour is a sense of solidarity with others, what we sometimes fail to do is to extend the same consideration towards our very own self. Remember that you - along with everyone else - is in a crisis, and doing your best to keep yourself and your loved ones safe and healthy, physically and mentally.Remember to be kind to yourself and extend the understanding to yourself that you would to others.Remember not to judge yourself and how you're coping by comparing it with how you see others coping, and vice versa.It's not a normal time. It's new and challenging for everyone. And that includes you.In that spirit, I would like to invite all of you to stop when you're reading this and take a moment out to show yourself some compassion. So, take a moment to tell me in the comments below:What made you proud of yourself today?Please post this to your journals / statuses / polls and ask this of your watchers too. You don't have to link back here. The important thing is that more and more people voice a positive way of thinking about themselves. Cover image credit: Canva

My New Year's Resolutions (for 2021 going on 2022)First and foremost, I will return to my family, assuming the viral craziness ends in 2022.After that, I will make my move to my new home. I will be found on the New-York-Vermont border from then on. I will still make regular visits to my best friends in Rochester, one visit a month or more. The road trip takes exactly six hours, but I promised I'd go to the ends of the world for them. Even if I have to hitchhike to get there (I can't drive).I will engage more with my family, including my mate's stepkids I never ever mention. My mom might be getting my Buzzly account (I tried alternative advice someone gave me yesterday, it didn't turn out to be workable).My adoptive step-dad left a will I haven't fulfilled, and I vow to fulfill my end of it (I love you dad).I will attempt to restrain my hypergraphia, both online and offline.I will fight to elevate a level in recognizing what's anxiousworthy. Anxiety is a witch.I will attempt to learn how to drive a vehicle, not a road vehicle since I have MS and am medically ineligible to drive but something else, maybe a hover machine like Jimmy Neutron has.I will reconfigure my time I spend on my Nintendo Switch, so that it's not just willy-nilly and my time spent on there is based on someone else wanting to play with me.For balance, I will focus entirely on literature deviations. It just may be my final year to post anything. If you are reading this, canonically, I have 150 deviations, err, in that 50 are literature, hence the number.I will meet my idol. Those who have known me for a long time know who I'm talking about.I will form a coherent roleplaying schedule so that more often I can roleplay with people.I will balance out the languages I speak, making sure it's not just the English speakers that get the majority of my interaction. Before English, I learned Morse and a Pidgin which was the basis for my English. After that, I was exposed to Portuguese in school (although very nonfluent), I learned some Maori phrases (keyword being "some") because I like New Zealand culture, and I also know the whole tongue of Toki Pona (which I also communicate/RP in), but I don't mention half of these for the sake of what we mean when we say "language".I will end my lifelong motivational conflict I have within me. Either light will win or darkness.Finally, I will more dedicatingly, whether or not completely, follow the Gregorian calendar.
