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

The past year or two have been stressful for me and I've gone through plenty of changes in my life.  That has killed much my inspiration, motivation and creativity.  However, I think that things are starting to bloom again for me.

I've been practicing all forms of positive thought, exercising methods of letting go of negative thoughts and trying to not dwell on the past, and embracing the present and being thankful in it.  Combining those with having gone through a long harsh winter, I think my muse is finally starting to come out of hibernation.  Little by little, I'm sketching again.  Painting pennies and working on other creative projects seem to help breathe fresh new life into my creativity and I feel like I WANT to do more. 

Patience is key, however.  I'm nervous about trying too much too soon and scaring away my shy muse back into hiding and burnout. 

Thankfully there are other alternatives available to me at this point.  I've got a voice studio all set up now for recording relaxation and hypnosis mp3s.  Talking doesn't take too much creative thought - at least not the same type of thinking that visual art uses.
I've also been working in other crafting forms of art lately as well.  Not sure what will come of it all, but it's fun to experiment.

In between projects, I'll be watching things that inspire me.  Agents of SHEILD, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (and reading the comics), and I've gotten the box set of Fraggle Rock.  The theory is - more happiness and inspiration going in, the more happiness and inspiration will come out!

I hope that Spring and new life have come to you all as well.

So sorry for you! I know things can get hard, and people are never the same after something that big, but you've got all of your loyal followers, and I know we'll try to be supportive. I'm glad things are getting better!

Hope things are getting better for you!  I've been a big fan of the Sue-chan website for years.  The devious but not always successful redheaded genie is one of my favorite characters... and not just out of your characters, but of ALL the characters I've seen drawn on the 'Net!  Love to see more of her, especially trapped in her own bottle.    :D

That genie seems to find ways of getting into peoples heads - she was someone else's inspiration before she reached me, and I know there have been stories and fan art of her since then as well.  I'm glad you like her so much and I'll definitely do my best to keep nurturing my muse and producing more art

As a long time writer I seriously understand shy muse's, I've learned not to allow more than a very select few see my finished works as my being both old and Dyslexic they are filled with errors.   My Best to you.

Well, she is a muse. So hopefully can help coax your muse out of her winter hibernation.

well, I'm not back to the level I was at.... baby steps.  Still, it is nice to start back into it.  Depression can really set a person back a bit, so any glimpse out of it is nice.

I haven't seen anything extra yet, but I just love the show, so I haven't looked for more than that.
Not sure if I'm back in the game, but I'm working on practice and it feels good.
