Compare yourself
"The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else's highlight reel" 
There's so much truth in this quote.
I can remember signing up to this website quite a number of years ago. I used to be among the best artists at school, but compared to most artists here... I absolutely sucked!
So I guess I did the thing that most people do when they first publish their shit on the world wide web and realize they aren't nearly as good at they thought they are; I got depressed and ragequit art for a while. Then I got back to drawing and lamented the fact that I wasn't among those insanely talented people (which, admittedly, I sometimes still do XD).
The funny thing is that I created entire scenario's in my head about those 'art idols'. About how amazing it would be that they could draw anything they want. About how people would naturally flock around them because they had skills. About how they earned big bucks by selling

Madness Descending
One by two,
Three by four,
Slowly passes through the door.
Five by six,
Seven by eight,
Silently hopeing it's not too late.
Nine by ten,
Eleven by twelve,
Sighs and sees that you are well.
One to two and back again,
Slowly counts from three to ten,
Turns to see you sink and fall,
But hold on, wait, that's not all.
Insanity has took it's hold,
Like pitch black storms it begins to unfold.
You cackle and laugh and shiver with fright,
And yet you try to resist with all of your might.
One by two,
Three by four,
Your sanity has left you,
It visits no more.
Your clutching and pulling at the pain in your head,
Wishing it would just go away instead.
But you see madness has a funny way to attack,
You push it away,
But it keeps coming back.
And with one little nudge,
The madness begins,
Sinking you,
Pulling you,
Deeper within.
Your grasping,
Reaching,
For some sort of hold,
Watching in fear as the madness explodes.
You flail and you fail for there's nothing to grab,
Once again realizing that your

I have seen this idea before in several places, but I've never seen the black and white pencils in the middle. It's a elegant twist on ...

Hey! If you would like to thank me for the favorite or watch, why don't you glance over my gallery and see if there's anything you'd like to fav yourself?

Requests are slow. They are for friends only.
Commissions are fast. They are currently semi-open.

Hello! My faux name is Qiana King! I enjoy drawing, and even though I'm not 'Core' I would love my art to be critiqued!
I'm late in everything, from school assignments to my own funeral, and it's probably gonna stay that way for a while. I love to draw, (mostly manga) like to write, and have many different hobbies.
Everything I do, I am able to do because of two things: One is God, who has gifted me with the talents, ability, and passion for what I love. The second is practice.
Also, I write for my OTPs here (Most of them are from Shakugan no Shana): www.fanfiction.net/u/4866575/
Below is where I usually am.
Interests
Haha, look at my last journal! So cute. Well that failed. Oh well.
As you might have guessed from the title, I’m taking an official break, after my very unofficial break. I’m so happy to have met so many people on this platform who are just . . . AWESOME. It’s been great! And you’ve been really patient with me. Hopefully you’ll all still be here when I get back on. And, because you’ve all been so awesome to me, I feel like ya’ll deserve an explanation.
This past year has been good. I’ve been making a lot of progress personally. Getting into college, connecting with my family, and writing a lot. But it’s also been bad. I’ve been more stressed than anything in my life calls for. Drawing, and writing for fun, have fallen behind. So have my reading habits for things I don’t just want to read for fun, but feel some duty to read. And when I do read it, I don’t know how to review it. Like, I can say, “that was awesome!” But critical praise or criticism is something that, in the recent months, I haven’t done. Nor have I really TALKED to anyone online, except for one person.
On the topic of stress: oh boy have I been stressed. For no reason. But some of it is about not drawing, or not reviewing, or not writing for the stories I’ve already started posting. And the thing is, this is supposed to be fun. Writing, drawing, I got involved in it out of fun. And then I started to lag behind, in drawing, in writing, in reviewing, and there’s just so much guilt. And the only way out is to ignore it, because I’ve made so many promises??? Why did I do that. Like. I have 2 stories partly posted and not complete. I have a drawing request I’ve been at for about a year. I have several accounts I never use, and I just don’t have time to do it. Like, believe it or not, I plan on finishing the Itadaki no Hecate eye-catches. And that’s going . . . uh . . . very, very slowly.
So, for my own mental health, I’m taking an indefinite break. I hope I’ll be able to keep all my promises, but I rather doubt it. For now, I’ll focus on two:
•Requested drawing from Sonic2978
•Reviewing Katerinnaquu’s story, because I really want to after starting it again

Yeah. I know that the stuff that’s impossible for me to do is easy for others to do. But it’s like a mountain to me, and I don’t even know WHY. Maybe energy issues? Those run in the family.
I think I’ve explained myself now. So if you see me posting things on my secondary accounts and and not responding to you on my main, you know why.

Experiment
She's no one in particular, even if she does look like Hecate. Just an experiment in style (in other words, ignore the terrible anatomy).

Awww, thank you!! Sorry for the late reply, I was sick. And I’m sorry as well for the misinformation; due to my family’s safety concerns, when I created this account I gave the site an incorrect date :/ But thank you for thinking of me! *hug*

No problem.

Oh I see :) Well I had done the same originally but I changed it because the date of birth (not the year just the day and the month) are not really THAT much to tell but I understand what you mean

Yeah, I just haven’t changed it because when I looked it up it seemed difficult, and I just kept putting it off. But really, thank you again! I hope you have a wonderful day!! *another hug*
