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

Got something good to tell! :D
It's funny how some things in life work. It always seems easier to fool yourself and shadow your doubts, than to give in to what you truly desire and truly think is right. Or is it? If you follow the mainly set up path it's easier to be accepted and to gain access to the big world of success. But then again, is it right? When walking such a path, will it be easy at times when you're forced to face yourself?
I really don't think so... The path I've chosen presently isn't easy, not when it comes to being accepted and embraced in the big people world. People continue to look down on me, to frown at what I'm doing and believe in. But following a path that's not lain down for me would be harder I suppose, because then I'd be in a constant struggle with myself. Been there, done that. I gotta say, I'm done following paths that break me down and shape me to what the big people think is right, like I'm some clay figurine.
Nope, I'm not in school. Yeah, here I go again, same old story and subject. But it's been one heck of a war regarding education, and I do think it deserves the proper attention.
In my previous journal I told about a lady of the test central, who eventually concluded that a general study wouldn't do for me, and that I could create my own study with everything I know and everything I love. That last one is what I decided to do.

Today I went to the libraby with my dad; I seriously haven't borrowed a book in YEARS. Now I have three: The Fifth Mountain by Paulo Coelho, a book about crop circles and a book with 100 great tips for drawing with pastel.
And so I decided it was time for my homemade homescholing programme! My own art education is about to begin, starting with basics of course. I just finished my schedule for the next 30 weeks. Every subject will be covered in a period of 3 weeks, with a final assignment as a sort of exam. Thus:


:bulletwhite: Pastels
Week 1: Basics and colour study
Week 2: Special Effects
Week 3: Combinding with other media
Final: Selfportrait (cover for The 9 Pieces of Lisa)

:bulletwhite: Coloured Pencils
Week 1: Basics and colour study
Week 2: Special Effects
Week 3: Combinding with other media
Final: Portrait Larissa (my niece)

:bulletwhite: Grey Pencils
Week 1: Basic shade study
Week 2: Basic practice
Week 3: Effects and detail
Final: Animal drawing

:bulletwhite: Charcoal
Week 1: Basic study and choice
Week 2: Basic Practice
Week 3: Effects and detail
Final: Landscape

:bulletwhite: Watercolour
Week 1: Basics and colour study
Week 2: Basic practice
Week 3: Effects and detail
Final: Fantasy scene

:bulletwhite: Acrylics
Week 1: Basic and colour study
Week 2: Special Effects
Week 3: Combinding with other media
Final: Illustration for Urban Angel

:bulletwhite: Markers
Week 1: Basic study
Week 2: Basic Practice
Week 3: Extra
Final: A cool poster

:bulletwhite: Ink
Week 1: Basic study
Week 2: Basic practice
Week 3: Effects and detail
Final: Illustration for Dalni and Morrigan

:bulletwhite: Digital Painting
Week 1: Style study
Week 2: Special Effects
Week 3: Extra
Final: Digital Painting


As you can see, I took the stuff to study quite broadly.. Did that on purpose. I've never been good at sticking strictly to schedules, so I won't punish myself if I wander off a bit. As long as I stick to the path and won't slack off. The reason I took it all in a broad concept (extra, special effects - could be anything) is because I don't know yet what exactly I'll be studying for each subject. I'll only know that when I've got the right books in my hands. My studying books, which I'll get from the library. Of course, I'll make sure that the books I borrow will contain info about the stuff I've put in my schedule.

*happy sigh*

I feel good. I really do. Of course, I still have some boggling things on my mind, such as finding work. But you know... life is like learning how to paint: first come the basics - the foundation - and after that the special effects and details. I know all will be fine and everything will fall into place, as long as my being is at peace. If it's not, if everything's shrouded by doubt and turmoil, how will I ever see the road?

Music and writing are not included in the home schooling I've set up here, but it's alright, there's a time and place for everything. I'll still work on them as I go of course, but who knows, maybe they'll get their special attention during the 'next school year' ;) Still gonna start on my demo soon, when exactly I don't know. But soon :D Still writing my book, I feel I'm getting close to the point of being able to finally properly continue on it.

So.. I wish you all well my friends!
