I know it’s only once in a solar eclipse by a full blue super-moon on Leap Day that I post a drawing, but I’m hoping that will change before too long.
By at least late May.

Some ideas I have are to use the computer to remaster some Miiverse drawings, and keep using Disney Art Academy on my 3DS for drawing the more detailed images.

Though, if anyone has suggestions on some good compute software for drawing, as well maybe some special styluses without a squishy tip, or any stuff like that, that would be nice.

The school year is calming down after all the testing, so I have some time to draw all this stuff I’ve planned.

I’ll try to stop making promises I can’t keep.
But I do promise that I’ll get back to drawing at some point hopefully soon.
My birthday’s coming up.

December 21st, to be specific.

I know it says November 21st on my profile but that was for Yoshi reasons

Just letting you all know, in case any of you wanted to make something for me.

Because I’ve almost never received birthday art. Ever. •,v,•
For some reason, my last journal didn’t even upload properly. So here it is again.

There’s been a lot of hiatus that I’ve been on. But why is that? I’ll explain why.

1. School
Academics is the biggest priority in my life right now. It’s getting shoved down my throat and that’s okay. Honestly, I just have to get off my butt and actually do stuff so I don’t keep falling behind. Thankfully, I’ve been taking time during this Thanksgiving break to catch up on all that. It’s going well.
But I dunno how insane it’s going to get on the second semester.
Honestly, school is like Salmon Run in Splatoon 2: there’s so much crap you have to take care of, and more crap comes in faster than you can deal away with what you already have.
I have little to no time during the school hours to even think things over. Hell, I have only 25 minutes for LUNCH. But it’s totally manageable. I just need to get good. -v-

2. Video Games
2017 has been an amazing year for video games. Zelda Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2, Cuphead, the TF2 Jungle Inferno update, Mario Odyssey, Sonic Mania... I could go on for a while.
I’ve been so caught up in the gaming scene that drawing is hard to do when I realize that there’s already so much fun stuff that I could be doing in video games.
Thankfully, I’m still enjoying drawing as much. I’ve just been too hyped to miss a beat in the gaming market at the moment.

3. Lost Motivation
I’ve been a little too sad deep down to really want to draw much, honestly. The constant stress makes me feel like I wouldn’t have the time to draw...
I do have time, but... the pressure of school is just getting to me...
I’m getting closer to finding motivation, but the problem is that it takes a good deal of effort to make good art, but I don’t wanna litter my DeviantArt with sketches. I want detailed, colorful, crisp works of beauty. (Or how close I can get to that.)
It’s not as easy to make and share art as it was with Miiverse, that’s for sure.
But I’m not one to be a downer.
I’m looking up, and looking forward.

Thank you all for having the patience to wait for me. <3

Today isn’t actually my birthday.
It was the birthday for Yoshi, because that’s the day Super Mario World released.

My actual birthday is December 21st.

Please tell me there’s a way to change it to that.
I have good news!
Because I’ve been working a lot more diligently in school, I’m finally freeing up some time to DRAWWWWWWW
So expect some stuff every now and then. Hopefully.

Hope you all have a good day.

Also my gf’s birthday is tomorrow
Y’all better flood her with affection
I’m gonna try to draw much more frequently.
I think I’ll try to make one every week, but I can’t promise anything, like, at all.

The reason: school.
Education is a first priority, and I can’t really stray from it. At all.
Engineering class is the biggest problem.
You always work in there. You get brainwashed to do nothing but work.
And so far, none of it is even fun.
I signed up for working with some groups to make cool little things, not marathon my way through three packets every week.
This shit better be worth some graduation credit or hands will be caught.

Anywho...I’ll try to take at least a bit less time on games and more time on art.
I dunno if I can manage it, but... I will sure as heck try my best.
I’m really sorry that I’ve been taking ages to do SOMETHING, but...
Nothing really feels fun anymore. Because there’s always something lingering in your mind about some other work you have to do.
It’s painful.

I’ll... stop my tangent now. Hope you all have a nice day. -w-
Hello, everyone. It's me, Parky.

I... have some things to tell you all.

Currently, there are three things I'm trying to balance as well as possible: grades, sleep, and happiness/free time (basically the same thing tbh lmao)
Think of it as a triangle, and these three things are the sides.
As one or two are heavily focused on to perfection, the other(s) falls so goddamn short.

Granted, I'm not happy without good grades, but... All work and no play is... well, painful.

If I get good grades and free time, then sleep will be nonexistent. If I get free time and sleep, I won't have enough time to do assignments.

And--the state I'm forced into right now, especially because of engineering class--
If I get good grades and sleep... I won't have time to do there things I even like.

And you might be like BUT THE WEEKEND, BRUH
>weekend is less than half as long as the weekdays
and you might be thinking JUST GET THAT SHIT DONE
but that's pretty hard because I can't stop myself from procrastinating like a little bitch and it's also actually really hard and/or time-consuming which is also really painful

Now, procrastination, I'm heavily working on (and solving.). But work is work.
And it's hard to work and home because I'm already out of the working mood by then.

It's just hard to keep up with everything sometimes. So much to remember, and so much to do.

School alone is a lot to handle and manage. But by the time I finish it, it's like
"hah sike it's 10pm you gotta sleep otherwise you'll feel like shit the whole day lmao"

The main problem I have here is that I was already extremely behind in posting art, but now it's like... expect some every eon or two.

It's just a lot of stress to go through, because I know you guys wait so long for me just to do SOMETHING.
I have to thank you all for being so patient, as much as I don't deserve it...

I'm not depressed or anything. Just a little worried and overwhelmed. Hopefully, things will get better. UvU
And more art will be posted. Hopefully.
At the very least, I'll just post random shit or photos or memes I made. Or at the VERY least, just some updates on how I'm doing.

Anywho, that's about it.
Love you guyssssss
I wanna apologize for being gone so long. Needed to get my phone fixed.

But the forced hiatus actually gave me a little time to think...
And I just don't know if I can hold back anymore.

I... may, in fact... show my true colors...
The real me might be revealed...
No promises, though. -v-
Apologies, but as of recently... I've been loosing my drive to draw stuff. I don't know why or how, but... I just don't feel it anymore.

I'll see what I can do to get back to it, though. ^v^
Our world is defined by speed.
There is not use denying the need.
But as much as we want to find
So much to satisfy our curious mind,
Sometimes there's way more to observe and know
If we were to take it slow.

Take a look around yourself. What doth thou see?
Bugs? Grass? A really tall tree?
Or do you see everything whizzing by thee?
Mere blurs of what once was?
Except it's still there... all you need to do is pause.

This plane of existence is so very vast.
Things move super slow. Others incredibly fast.
Things that are big, like plains and trees
Things that are small, like birds and honeybees.
Things that are so big, you're a speck to it.
Things that are so small, your eyes can't detect it.
But by God, you can feel it.
Oh, can you feel it, now that you've stopped.

Life is a thing that goes by fast.
It might best if you make it last.
You might see a lot going fast...
But how long until it is past?
Just faint memory, soon lost in time.
Life could be spent searching for a holy grail
But it could be right next to you, hidden in nature's fine detail.
So take a look around, before you go
Because there's more time to enjoy when you take it slow.
Hi... It's the real ThatCuteDinosaur. The guy that draws everything here. The young aspiring guy that acts like Yoshi to make everyone else happy. For now, call me P.

I don't know how much more Yoshi I can draw while acting as Yoshi. It makes him seem... narcissistic.
I might have to be the real me every time I make that art...
Or I could just make it so that it's his interpretation of events that recently happened. Yeah, let's go with that. -w-'

Also, as you've seen, much more than Yoyo has been appearing on this profile. Other people's characters, maybe a single object, who knows. I might be drawing more things like "single objects." Like a rose or apple, or maybe a beautiful view behind the hills. Like I said, all being thought over.

Also, I'm beginning to wonder if I should actually draw some not-so-modest stuff eventually. It seems like that's the only way to get a significant following in this weird-ass online culture. -v- I've only done it satirically and privately. None were for actual erotic purposes.

I also want to just be myself online now. But I feel like being Yoshi actually has better benefits. Like...
1. Negativity is at a minimum
2. More likely to be followed for being someone's favorite character
3. Much nicer tbh
4. Pretty much more likable in most ways
But it's starting to feel weird to be someone other than myself... But why should I stop when everyone loves me for doing it...?

As I said, I'm thinking over all this, and it's kind of hard to come to a conclusion.

W-What would all of YOU prefer?

Being nice is hard. It really is.

As much as I may seem like I'm rainbows and sunshine 100% of the time, when things get ridiculous, I can't help but just... but just get real.

When things get so stupid, so goddamn moronic, being the angelic pacifist dinosaur wouldn't get the sense in they need.

When a friend's acting sad or depressed over something idiotic, my body's telling me, "Console him!" But my brain is saying, "Tell this dork that this behavior is stupid."

Not naming any names or specific examples, but this has happened before, recently in fact. With someone older than me. That's all I can say: an adult acting like a child. And it was over opinions on something he didn't even like. If you don't like something, WHY WOULD YOU GET SERIOUSLY INVOLVED IN IT?!</i>

Something else that really sends me off the Innocence Train is when people that get upset at me over the tiniest of things when THEY were the ones being jerks at me in the first place.

They could tell me to shut up and then expect someone like me to take it lightly.

And then they don't give me a chance to supposedly "apologize" when they were the one treating me like DIRT.

Of course, I don't expect everyone I come across to be perfect, obviously, but these things happen way more often than you'd think.

I have to deal with that, along with the real friends I care about and need support (but that's top priority <3), keeping active with drawings and stuff, and my real life activity.

I just don't know what to do, guys... Ú^Ù
I may have to be a mere passive part of ThatCuteDinosaur and have... well... someone take over.  I know who it would be, but... I can't say.

I just need time to think. Some drawings will be out eventually.
Not revealing anything, I'm just gonna say that, starting on May 26th, I will be much more active and drawing again! And this is not some "followed by procrastination" stuff that I sometimes fall prey to. This is real.

I WILL do it.

I may not upload on that day, but I definitely will work again.

I may also create a Patreon for donations and stuffs. Hopefully it goes well and I can get a bit of revenue for my efforts. Either that or I'll set up commissioning. Whichever works best.

Love you all! ^v^
Well... I don't believe I have anyone to celebrate it with...

So... uh... gonna mention some people who are like mommies to me.

:iconsupercyborgdino: - My beloved Nay-Nay~
:iconchumpssaur: - Chumpy
:iconholddear: - Doggo
:iconspoongeanie: - The one that always cheers me up
:iconvideogamelover15: - Hannah. Just being there helps.

Love you all~ <3
I have no intention of suicide. May have thoughts, but I never actually attempt or consider it. I know it's not a way out.

Sometimes, though, I feel like I would be the cause of my own death. That's all.
I used to be full of happiness,
filled with it to stay.
But I gave too much of it to my friends, and
starvation is the price I pay.

I no longer can get much out of
seeing my own friends' joy.
Because soon I'll probably wilt away
like an old children's toy.

The Golden Age of my career
is already behind me.
At this rate, my life is in decline
Until from this world, I am free.

The hands that once created
joy and happiness for all of friend,
Will now be the hands that destroys the creator,
To which will be the cause of my own end.
I often see artists have a Patreon. All I know is that it's like, a donation-type thing to help creators and people in general.

Here's my question...
Should I make one myself?
