First thing's first; beautiful stuff up there ahhhh ;A; ^^^^ Your hair is boss! It's so lovely~~~ <3

 

Ohhh criES THANK YOU SO MUCH <333 you're so nice omg i'm so flattered thank you <33

ohh i'm sure you can! just keep practising, you'll get it! c:

 

ohh thank you so much!! <33 yeah, that's true. i actually opted out of doing the hands xd.png i'll do some one-on-one practise before drawing them in sketches.

 

ohh don't worry about it! it's not rude, i'm happy to answer!

actually, my arts thread was suggested by my therapist. i suffer from depression and anxiety, so she suggested that putting my work out there and getting feedback might help with my depression. and honestly, it has! in little bits, it's made me more comfortable with what i do and also a little bit more vain, so it's really nice. c: i used to be very very scared with posting what i draw, but now wips and my most recent sketches are really common. i find that as my arts thread grows, i grow and my skill grows too!! so overall, i think you should go for it! having an arts thread is really helpful and i'm sure your art is wonderful--share it with the world! <3

 

Oh you're welcome~ you're welcome! >w< And bah, thanks, though I'm not very self-confident. You take art classes for realism, right? Or a private tutor (or something like that? OTL) or...? Personally, I don't take art classes, and everyone does their own thing, so...

 

Mhm! And yeah, some people recommend making a "hands page" with all kinds of hands and poses and such. I haven't really done it in a long time personally, but I probably should. ^^;

 

omg I'm sorry! D= I'm glad that it's helping though! I haven't ever really posted my art out to the world or anything like that, and ever since I was little I always was afraid someone might want to steal my art, (but BAHAH who would want to steal my art at THAT time? laugh.gif It was awful!) which I still have that small fear. I guess I could try to go for it, when I actually draw something to share? or...? Though I'm not very confident in my abilities. ^^; Thank you for answering! It's appreciated! <3

ohhh thank you so much!!! <33333 i'm literally crying you're so nice omg thank you

 

ohhh <33

ah, i understand! self-confidence is really something you have to work on and slowly accept with time. i struggle with it too, you're not alone! but good luck. whatever you do, i'm sure it'll come to you with time! <3

ah, no! my art classes are actually something i took in highschool to fill an empty block i had. :'D the classes i wanted were all either after school activities or for higher grades, and at grade nine we're not allowed to have a spare block, so since i know the art teacher quite well i took her class for fun and she's been lovely. <33 i've learnt a lot through classes!

honestly, i was thinking of signing up for art classes off school as well since they actually help quite a ton. <3 but if you're self taught, that's really cool too! ^^ i value your skills and dedication. <3

 

ohhh right! that sounds really helpful, actually. bah, i'm pretty sure if i attempted something like that they'd look so bad at first xd.png but that acutally sounds quite helpful! i might try that, thank you. c:

 

ohh don't be!! <33 it's hard sometimes, but overall i'm doing okay.

oh, right D: i feel really bad for artists who get their art stolen--that's horrible and i can't believe anyone would attempt something like that! try to take a lot of precautions, such as posting with watermarks and warnings? it happens, but usually you can find and report the thief. <33 good luck!!

you should go for it!! getting feedback and having others view your work is very encouraging and motivation boosting. c: i wish you luck!! if you ever do decide to make an arts thread, please link me! i'd love to see. c:

ohh no problem!! <33 thank you for replying, it's lovely to chat!

Ahh >////w////< dun cry~ you're welcome, you're welcome~!!! <3 Am I really that nice lol >///<

 

Yes, it sure is. I'm glad I'm not alone in it though, lol! And thank you, buh, you're too nice! >//o//<

Ahhh! I see! Sounds like you had fun! I've considered art classes myself some, but not a whole ton, though even so they would probably be good. And, I suppose being self-taught is cool, lol. I'm practically the only "artist" in my family, so it was tough going far with it because I didn't really have much "good" critique. =/ Though, my mom and family going, "wow, omg that's amazing you really have a talent wow" was indeed supportive, I guess! xd.png Definitely got me through a lot, I'm sure. Again, thank you very much! <3

 

Lol! My first hand page was a disaster. Heck, my hands in general were awful! The fingers were all pointy and the hand was really small, and sometimes I would accidentally have one hand 5 and the other hand 6 for fingers @~@; Yeah, I really didn't take hands into account for my art. But, by the time I did a hands page I had actually started to think about the hand itself and how many fingers it had, lol! But yes, very helpful, huhuhuuu! And oh you're very welcome, I'm glad if I can help at all! >o<

 

Yeah, when I see stolen art I'm just like "wut I mean cumon you derp" and I tend to be upset for the artist. =/ Knowing art theft is out and about made me uncomfortable, as I stated similarly. And yes, in past experiences of art, I have taken watermarks into account (because I'm like an over-protective parent to my art. laugh.gif ). I find myself feeling a little more secure that way. And yeah, You're right x3 Thanks (again rofl)~!

I guess I just might then! x3 Thank you very much! I definitely when/if I do! =D

 

Mhm, definitely lovely to chat~ especially with other artists! <3 as much as I am an introvert at times

 

 

Sent you a PM btw... in case you didn't notice... huhuhu...

Ahh >////w////< dun cry~ you're welcome, you're welcome~!!! <3 Am I really that nice lol >///<

i cry omg yes you are very nice <33 thank you!!

 

you're never alone! good luck with everything <3 you can do it! just keep swimming. c:

ohhh bruh i cry thank you so much,,, i'm not tht nice i just do what i think i gotta do--thank you so much tho!! ;//v//;

i really did! c: a good teacher can really make the difference in a lot of things.

art classes are really helpful--while being self taught is really cool, there's always ways and tips you can learn from other artists as well. c: it's like a community!

ahh yeah i feel my family isn't on the creative side either--mathematicians and engineers, and here i am being awful at maths and preferring drawing / writing over formulas. xd.png

ohh that's so nice of your family!! <33 yeah, having a lot of support does wonder to your self confidence and ability as an artist. c: always accept compliments and take them as motivation to continue on!

 

oh geeze i feel i haven't drawn many hands but my first few hands were like what is this actually why

omg aaaa that's so nice to hear!! you really do develop as an artist as time goes on. but yeah, thinking about what you're drawing is always a good tip when drawing. xd.png i'm sure your hands are lovely--and when you start an arts thread, i demand to see these beautiful hands so i can weep at how talented you are. c:

you've helped lots!! <33 i'll probably end up doing a hands page soon, i need to practise those sometime. xd.png

 

oh god ikr :c like why do people even steal art? i don't understand what they could possibly earn from that and it only makes the actual artist feel so, so bad. i've seen artists delete their accounts / works to avoid them having been stolen or placed somewhere without credit, and it's just so, so sad. :c gotta make sure to credit people and not steal things, at the very least.

you win some and you lose some, i suppose. watermarks are always a good idea--and if you get your art stolen, that's really horrible, but there's usually a way to report the thief as well. good luck! i hope nothing like that happens--the dc forums is a really nice place, anyways! c:

sounds good! c: i'm excited yayyy

 

oh yesyes. ; v ; i always love being able to chat with anyone in general! it's so much fun and i've met a lot of people through my thread.

oh d/w i feel i'm an introvert too and it sucks sometimes bc there's just no way to tell someone you're tired from just talking and need a little bit of me-time to recover

 

i noticed and i replied! c: thank you so much for the lovely pm. <33

Good to hear then! Lol! I just like being kind to others because I feel good as well while it makes others feel good too ^u^/ it does make people feel good, right? OTL

 

Oh yes, swimming, swimming~! >u< lol!

Oh I only say the truth, you're so welcome~! <3 Nu you're very nice ;//3//;

Truth right there. The teacher can make a very big difference! Yes, I will mention I do like to see on YouTube what other artists do and see if I can improve from it! =D The world is a very broad community with lots of different styles and techniques, so there's always something else out there! The internet is very good for finding that stuff, too c:

 

Oh the mathematicians and chemists! ;A; My dad loves science and math and such, while I'm just kinda like "erm >>;" every single time =/ My mom did at one point paint little tile things and make little doodads, but that's not anymore. She was more on the "paint" side of things while I'm more on the "pencil" side. Plus, she's not very creative anymore, sadly ;_;

 

Ohh, you write? =O I need to go see that! I like writing as well, though I'm not as good =/ But I should check your writing thread out some time. //Shame, shame, Kira. ><;

 

Yup, yup! =) Support is definitely good for self confidence! I'm not a very motivated person anymore, but I still draw when I'm not too lazy. =P Definitely take compliments for motivation, but I find myself the most motivated when I have a conversation with my IRL artist buddies and they get me in gear with excitement. But even so, compliments do work; sometimes better than other times.

 

Lol I understand the feeling. x3 Just keep jumping to it and spring on the victim! BUHAHAHAHAAAA >=D //lol jk but something like that anyways xd.png

 

Yeah, you sure do! And LOL definitely a good tip there xd.png

BAWWWHHH oh you!!! ;A; You're too nice, they're not that good tho! They're actually not really good at all >o< Uuuuu you're too nice waaa QAQ you haven't even seen it yettt >//o//<

And omg I'm so happy I've helped ;u; And I'd love to see it when it's existing x3

 

ik it's just like NO >=C Go steal your own art or something LOL but then again that wouldn't be stealing BUT STILL just NO. I don't understand, either! D= It's not gonna get them anywhere, really, so it's like, "WHY? Of all the time you could be improving you choose to STEAL >=V REALLY?" I don't think I'll ever get thieves, maybe they thing they'll look awesome, or...? I-I don't even know ;_;

I've seen it too, especially sad when it's the really amazing artists that you're just like "omg whyyyy??? why why why why whyyy???" and all of that =/ Yeah, I try to give every little bit of credit for something ^^; Credit is important!

 

Yeah, watermarks are the way to go for more cautious people like me so I'll possibly be doing that in the art thread, not sure about all of the works though ^^; but either way, I agree! DC is a nice place, I wouldn't want any theft going on! =D

 

edit: Thank you for replying ^^ uuu you're too nice you're welcome x3

*sits in a corner with my math contest stuff and Pokemon fanart*

 

It's actually really awful being in this society and liking math because there's this...preconceived notion that math is terrible and boring and pointless but being good at it is good, for some reason? So you've got people admiring your skills one minute and then laughing about how boring this thing you really enjoy doing is the next. I just. Excuse me? Do people think this is acceptable behaviour? What do they think I'm doing when I nod and smile when they tell me about their interests?? I don't care about celebrities or Sherlock or whatever but at least I make a fsking effort to be polite //unprovoked rant

 

Excluding deviantArt (which is frankly a really toxic community a lot of the time) I've heard of cases of art theft maybe three, four times at most? And one of those times it was handled really well and the person apologized and said they didn't know it was rude to repost without sourcing. It's not as huge of an issue as you would think really!! And by the time your art is famous enough to steal you'll also have a community of supporters who'll help you in finding and calling out thieves. And honestly, even if it does happen, nothing bad will really result from that. Some people might think someone else made a thing that you made but as long as they still think it's cool, it's still your art that's getting the recognition.

Quick question: did you draw your recent portraits from references? In the past I've tried to do some basic portrait drawings but they turned out... very badly >.< one of the reasons I love drawing dragons so much is I can source them from my imagination and not a real-life photograph. I'm awful at drawing what I see. So yeah I'm jealous of your hand to eye coordination.

I have this problem too ugh. I'm in love with doing stoich and solving redox reactions and all this fun stuff, but the only people I can talk to about my chemistry obsession are my parents. My friends poke fun at me for it and it gets on my nerves more than I would like to say.

Art theft on deviantart is caught pretty quickly, actually. Especially (like you said) if the original artist has a significant following. I have a DA and (while I have like eight followers ouch) it's not bad or especially toxic. As it is with most sites, it depends on who you associate yourself with. If you find an art thief and call them out the problem gets resolved much more easily than it does when you're using the internet at large. In my experience, anyway. To each their own.

exactly, exactly! c: oh, youtube tutorials are great! i agree; there's a lot you can learn and we have better resources than ever before due to the internet and how so many people are connecting on it nowadays--it's really easy to learn and skill is endless!

 

oh god ikr?? i feel. i admire them so much tbh i'm actually so bad at maths and everything and i'm like how do you do the thing please teach me

a lot of my friends are super super good at the thing or at least better than i am and they always help me out, heh.

ohh, really? same here! i actually love science too, though i'm more interested in psychology than anything else--i have a textbook and when i'm not doing anything i'll just sit down to read and take notes. <3 i believe it's good to learn things through different parts of your brain, both the creative and the logical!

awww :c i know what you mean--my mom used to be pretty creative but nowadays she's like nope. xd.png

 

yes i do! c: i don't mean to brag or anything, but i've been writing far more than i've been drawing. xd.png i think i've been writing about a decade or so? and honestly, i have more confidence in my writing than my drawing :'D

ohh omg no don't check that old thing i'm so embarrassed wahh

i haven't written much to put online, honestly xd.png my stuff is either original stories or trashy stories i write for myself to read at 4 AM, LOL.

i'm sure you're good at writing!! it's so fun, is it not?

 

exactly! c: so compliments are lovely things <33

omg aww that's so cute c: you should talk more with your artist friends then!! <33 honestly, i get motivation by setting goals. xd.png one day i want to be able to drawing a comic, so i'll keep working towards that goal! c: honestly, that'd be so cool to do hh

i wish you luck with motivation!! <33 it's a tricky thing but it really does wonders. c:

 

omgLOL. that works too, yeah! xd.png

 

oooo huggles you omg ; v ; don't cry!! i'm sure they are i want to see your art so badly omg <333

i knowwww which is why you should show me so i have stuff to base my endless supply of compliments on pls let me do the thing

omg hhh <33 you've helped lots, thank you so much!! and sounds good, i'll see if i can squish in any practise sooner or later. c:

 

oh god ikr

omgLOL. you're so cute that's adorable--and i agree! instead of stealing, they should make their own art, that works too!

aaa exactly that's just really sad :cc i don't see the point of stealing art, honestly, it just makes a huge mess and no one profits from such a thing.

aaaa oh god ikr i feel so bad :cc having really good artists shut down due to theft is really argh sometimes :c

exactly! credit is really really important. ^^

 

they areeee. watermarks do wonders!

sounds good, though. if you're wary of that sort of thing, just use a watermark--it'll be okay!

dc is a really nice place. i'm sure nothing will happen--the community is really good at that sort of thing!

 

ooooo no problem!! <33 i enjoy talking omg no need to thank me aa you're so nice <333

 

 

*sits in a corner with my math contest stuff and Pokemon fanart*

 

It's actually really awful being in this society and liking math because there's this...preconceived notion that math is terrible and boring and pointless but being good at it is good, for some reason? So you've got people admiring your skills one minute and then laughing about how boring this thing you really enjoy doing is the next. I just. Excuse me? Do people think this is acceptable behaviour? What do they think I'm doing when I nod and smile when they tell me about their interests?? I don't care about celebrities or Sherlock or whatever but at least I make a fsking effort to be polite //unprovoked rant

 

Excluding deviantArt (which is frankly a really toxic community a lot of the time) I've heard of cases of art theft maybe three, four times at most? And one of those times it was handled really well and the person apologized and said they didn't know it was rude to repost without sourcing. It's not as huge of an issue as you would think really!! And by the time your art is famous enough to steal you'll also have a community of supporters who'll help you in finding and calling out thieves. And honestly, even if it does happen, nothing bad will really result from that. Some people might think someone else made a thing that you made but as long as they still think it's cool, it's still your art that's getting the recognition.

 

smashes through the window bruh pokemon omega ruby and alpha sapphire demos are out

 

replies to rant like i'm sorry i don't mean to be offensive don't hurt me i'm weak and i'll probably just cry at you until you feel awkward

 

i don't think it's that way at all? i mean, yes, there are certain people who would agree to such a thing, but that's a generalized stereotype and although people may complain about such a thing that's no reason to hate on a subject. i know we live in different areas so our perspectives are going to be different, obviously, but my personal view on the subject is that i respect whatever someone wants to due. if they like math, they can do math. if they like drawing, they can draw. i apologise for the way my comment may have sounded, but my intention wasn't to overall hate on the actual subject--i will agree with you, math is fun sometimes! my dad likes it far too much and i'm just saying that, personally, i would rather draw than do an equation. it's a personal preference.

the idea that you have to be good at something to enjoy it is bull as well. if you like doing the thing, do the thing. i would rather have people complimenting me on my struggles than my overall success.

 

if you're surrounded in an environment where people won't respect what you like, get out. there is absolutely no reason to tolerate someone hating what you love--i've struggled with such a thing, too. people used to mock my love of reading and how i would rather curl up with a good book than go to the theatre, but eventually i did find people who respected what i liked and would be willing to talk to me about such a thing rather than mock me.

 

overall, i don't think it's fair to group society as a whole into a box. there are many different fractions and there is always people who will share the same interest as you. i meant no disrespect with my comment--i'm simply stating that i, myself, do not like math as much as someone else would.

 

as i've said before, i don't know where you're from, but where i live and in my friend group people respect each other for what they like. i won't tolerate anyone being disrespectful towards another's interests, since we're all different. if you're in a situation where people constantly mock who you are and what you like, then please find a better environment for you and your mental health.

 

deviantart is filled with drama at certain times, yes. depending on where you are and the actions you can it can really affect your career there.

aaaa i'm glad to hear those cases were solved without conflict!! unfortunately i've heard a lot of worse stories than that, such as places where art was stolen by a foreign company and language was an issue, or just that the thief simply didn't care. it really depends on the situation and there have been cases where art theft was really serious and the artist had to remove their works just because. i think the overall outcome of such a thing really depends on the situation where the art was stolen and how the artist feels personally, as well as the thief's response.

 

Quick question: did you draw your recent portraits from references? In the past I've tried to do some basic portrait drawings but they turned out... very badly >.< one of the reasons I love drawing dragons so much is I can source them from my imagination and not a real-life photograph. I'm awful at drawing what I see. So yeah I'm jealous of your hand to eye coordination.

 

yes, i use references! i'm actually really horrible at drawing from imagination or memory--something i really need to work on--so most of my drawings will be done with a reference.

ohhh drawing dragons sounds so cool <33 i'd love to give such a thing a shot sometime!

ooo thank you so much!! i admire your imagination, honestly. i'm horrible at the turning things i imagine into stories / drawings thing, argh.

 

I have this problem too ugh. I'm in love with doing stoich and solving redox reactions and all this fun stuff, but the only people I can talk to about my chemistry obsession are my parents. My friends poke fun at me for it and it gets on my nerves more than I would like to say.

 

again, i apologise if i'm rude as that's not my intent, but perhaps try telling your friends it offends you? they should understand as i don't think anyone wants their hobbies and interest mocked at--and if they continue, find other people who share your interests? i'm not saying get rid of your friends, but expand your circle to let in a few people who share the same love for maths and the like?

 

Art theft on deviantart is caught pretty quickly, actually. Especially (like you said) if the original artist has a significant following. I have a DA and (while I have like eight followers ouch) it's not bad or especially toxic. As it is with most sites, it depends on who you associate yourself with. If you find an art thief and call them out the problem gets resolved much more easily than it does when you're using the internet at large. In my experience, anyway. To each their own.

 

ah, i agree! it depends on where you are. i hardly post anything on my dA but i have roleplayed there before and it's pretty fun--it really depends on which communities you push yourself into. but yes, it's always good to hear that art theft is caught quickly and easily on those sites!

Aaahhhhh I'm late again, sorry.

 

I really like the first one, but really am not too sure of what it is? It looks sort of like a reflection on a piece of crystal or something, but not really? It's really cool though!

 

The second is really great as well, but it still looks a little twisted. The face side away from the wall slopes up way faster than the other side, which is rounded.

 

The third one is neat too, but it's just a baseline, so I can't really say too much about it. Great work, though!

 

Pi: How is dA a toxic community? Just kinda curious, never got into it too much.

 

And aw, it sucks when your interests are laughed at. I've only ever had this problem with Pokemon, but all my friends are nerds like me, competing for who can break 98% on their average marks in school first. It sounds terrible being teased for liking different things.

ohh don't be sorry thank you so much for replying <333

 

ohh thank you so much!! it's supposed to be a woman in a . . . i think it's a hijab? it could be a burqa too i'm not too sure frick--i'm not too clear on clothing someone please feel free to correct me!!

we had to do negative space, where the contrast really shows so i decided to simply leave the hijab white and not add any lines--though i might now as i don't want it to be mistaken as something else. xd.png thank you so much, though!! <33

 

ohh thank you <33 wha, does it really?? i'll look at it some more it could just be my camera playing tricks--but if not i'll definitely fix that, thank you so much!! <33

 

ohh thank you c: yeah it was just simply hair practise xd.png not too much effort im super lazy by e

 

i know you intended that question to be for pi and i'll leave it to them to answer it, but from what i've seen there have been cases where cyerbullying has occurred with some people. still, i'm not too clear as i've only used it for roleplaying in small amounts.

 

aaa yeah that's true :c it really does suck! it's really good to hear you have such nice friends, though. <33

it is really terrible--some people are just cruel, i suppose. but there's always a silver lining and there really are some nice people that share common interests to be friends with, too. c:

Yeah I know what you're saying!! It's just that...eugh I spent like 15 minutes trying to write this post and I am terribad at expressing my thoughts. Have a rant I wrote on the subject a while ago. What I mean when I say society is like... institutions, the government, big companies, things that influence normal people's opinions on things, not the people themselves. I'm very very vocal about my opinion on people who do that and my friends are very supportive, it's just that microaggressions from strangers on the bus/friends of friends/school presentations telling us to go into art or something to make yourself happy because how could you POSSIBLY like math really add up over time and there's nothing I can really do about them (anxiety+lack of power) and I'm really fsking frustrated about the whole thing. U_U And it really has nothing to do with anything you said!! I just have a tendency to rant about things!!! You are cool keep doing your cool thing

 

Sorry about the deviantArt comment, it's just that I've heard a lot more horror stories about that site than basically anywhere else :\ This one artist I really like (who does deep sea creatures and grotesque monsters and stuff that generally has nothing to do with feminism) is currently getting flamed with ableist slurs for mentioning that he supports feminism once and??? It just seems like it's harder to avoid the terrible people on dA as compared to other websites. I don't know that much about it though and I probably shouldn't be making blanket statements about it.

ook omg thank!! i thought you were referring to me and i was like br U H im so sorry i did a thing

ooo yeah i see what you mean!! it's tru tho a lot of the media nowadays does encourage people to think of school subjects--math, especially, as something to be despised rather than cherished. it's pretty sad because it does turn a lot of people away from wanting to do the thing just because everyone keeps insisting that the thing is bad.

i guess there's always going to be two sides to an argument--one could say that people are extinguishing art in the face of education or that education is being extinguished through arts and creative services. it's really upsetting how sometimes there just isn't a balance since everyone is like oo you must do this thing or you must do this other thing no how could you possibly like this thing / like both thing

 

aaa yeah i understand the whole lack of power / too much anxiety thing!!! sometimes you really wanna speak up but it's just not the time and it's very very hard to change mindsets once they're set on doing a thing--just try to surround yourself in the best environment possible! it's impossible to get everyone to always agree on one thing and for hate not to exist, but finding happiness is sometimes not so hard either.

ooo criES T HANK YOU SO MUCH!! ok yeah bc i was really worried i was like ??????????????? crAP did i say the wrong thing bc i have done that before puts face in hands like. why

oo thank you so much ur cool too br u H

 

aaa yeah deviantart is definitely up there as one of the sites you should be careful on--then again, it is a really big community and large gatherings of people with conflicting opinions is never too good.

zooms which artist is this his work sounds so cool!!!

ugh that's horrible nani the heck,, i don't understand why someone would do that that's just rude. : ^ | feminism gets a really bad rep sometimes and people are really rude to it depending on where you talk about it,,, i feel really bad for that artist i hope he stays strong and looks past that!! he's really a good person for doing the thing honestly

actually, i think you're right--dA is easier to receive hate as there are so many ways to communicate with the person and less ways to block / ignore what certain groups are saying--but yeah, there's always a good and bad side to everything, and dA is one of those places where hate can get pretty extreme. apart from that, however, the people who do enjoy a successful career on there do have a large fanbase and plenty to be happy about!

That... really sucks, Pi. I'm sorry you feel people are trying to tell you to be anything but yourself D: that's never a good thing, no matter how it's said.

I guess I've been really lucky in the home I grew/am still growing up in and the people who I interact with. My friends and family are really supportive of me, and they encourage me to do what I want whether it's science or math or art or whatever.

You probably weren't coming here for support but too bad: you do you. Don't listen to people who offend you. Stick with people who will support you. Let people who don't like math do their thing c: there are plenty of people I know both in school and in math-related jobs that LOVE math and are really excited about it, so you're definitely not alone.

Anyway yeah. Rants happen.

Nah man, it's cool. Don't apologize. I know broader strokes paint the fence faster (which also relates to your math problem; educators have realized that quite a few people don't like math and might use generalizations to stop people from feeling pressured into doing them), and if you don't have a lot of experience with the site I can't fault you for that.

People anywhere can be real jerks, and certainly people have had bad experiences. Luckily DA has changed to try and fix that and has report features and a whole lot of supportive people. It can be difficult dealing with weird people on the internet though :F

Alright let me think for a second there's a lot going on in this thread and a lot of text so yah sorry OTL

 

To Pi, I'm going to apologize in case it was anything that I said that made you upset in anyway. =/ I find it's important to apologize anyway just in case. I'm sooo sorry about what's going on with you! I hope things go better over there with that! D=

 

bah i haven't replied to the pm yet have i i'm so so sorry i got distracted for like an hours while i was doing a thing frick i'll go reply right after i finish this reply!!

 

mmhmm!!

yep! it's always better to be nice rather than mean, honestly. of course it makes others feel good!! kindness is a shared thing and it goes all the way around. ^^  so good for you! c: you're doing a really good thing rn ahhh <333

 

swimming swimming indeed! c:

oooo i cry you're being so nice with the truth tho <33 thank you so much!! //showers you in compliments omg you're such a lovely person how

exactly, exactly! c: oh, youtube tutorials are great! i agree; there's a lot you can learn and we have better resources than ever before due to the internet and how so many people are connecting on it nowadays--it's really easy to learn and skill is endless!

 

oh god ikr?? i feel. i admire them so much tbh i'm actually so bad at maths and everything and i'm like how do you do the thing please teach me

a lot of my friends are super super good at the thing or at least better than i am and they always help me out, heh.

ohh, really? same here! i actually love science too, though i'm more interested in psychology than anything else--i have a textbook and when i'm not doing anything i'll just sit down to read and take notes. <3 i believe it's good to learn things through different parts of your brain, both the creative and the logical!

awww :c i know what you mean--my mom used to be pretty creative but nowadays she's like nope. xd.png

 

yes i do! c: i don't mean to brag or anything, but i've been writing far more than i've been drawing. xd.png i think i've been writing about a decade or so? and honestly, i have more confidence in my writing than my drawing :'D

ohh omg no don't check that old thing i'm so embarrassed wahh

i haven't written much to put online, honestly xd.png my stuff is either original stories or trashy stories i write for myself to read at 4 AM, LOL.

i'm sure you're good at writing!! it's so fun, is it not?

 

exactly! c: so compliments are lovely things <33

omg aww that's so cute c: you should talk more with your artist friends then!! <33 honestly, i get motivation by setting goals. xd.png one day i want to be able to drawing a comic, so i'll keep working towards that goal! c: honestly, that'd be so cool to do hh

i wish you luck with motivation!! <33 it's a tricky thing but it really does wonders. c:

 

omgLOL. that works too, yeah! xd.png

 

oooo huggles you omg ; v ; don't cry!! i'm sure they are i want to see your art so badly omg <333

First things first; I JUST realized I got a message from the Pokemon Trainer Club Newsletter (signed up a LONG time ago) six days ago! ohmy.gif How could I have missed that!?

 

Now for the above xd.png Don't worry about replying ;v; it's okey~ <3 I've been distracted, too.

 

I'm glad ^u^/ Plus, I find that grumpy people are really hard to be around, and I'm sure if I were grumpy all the time I'd be hard to be around, too =P

 

Uuuu niceness all around~ woo~

Yup yup! Youtube is great for it! I'm sure there's other places too, tho x3

 

Yeah =P Not like I wanna be a mathematician or anything like that someday but you know x3

Friends' help is good! Definitely good!

Psychology is rather interesting, actually =P The brain is a strange thing, too. But, what I do when I go out is usually (usually as in ALWAYS; like, I never have forgotten it before, really,) take my clipboard box full of paper and draw~ because that's what I find is the best way to express myself! Though, I still find other things somewhat interesting, too. UwU

 

And yeah about creative moms. She was so artistic with her little painting of tiles and glasses.. And now... Q_Q yeah.

 

Don't feel bad "bragging" lol xd.png It's funny then; I guess we're kinda "opposites" with that part because I've been drawing a TON more than writing in my life, though it's been awhile since I wrote something huge...? I wrote with my friend, let's just say that... lol.

Aw I'm sure you've got great stuff going on then =D I'd love to see some recent work sometime then! x3 And yes, it is indeed fun, though when I look back at old stuff I'm all like "wth was I thinking UGH so stupid" and all of that so ^^;

 

Mhm!

Buh absolutely >w< I sometimes worry because they're a good few years (around 4? The two I talk to most are twins,) older than me, but they're still very friendly and I like them a lot! =D Goals are good but I have AWFUL motivation with them. =/ I actually have been working on a comic of my own, kinda. But the process is so slow >o< More of, I'm slow. I'm a very lazy and unmotivated person when it comes to goals, believe it or not, so it's hard for me to complete a goal... >>; ...I really should learn to start small.....yeah...

And yup xd.png you too!

 

Mhm! (saying this too much maybe lol sorry)

 

Uuu I feel the shower of disappointment already >O< I'm not that good, but UUU I'm also dying of your sweetness and encouragement ;u;

Yey I hope to not fall into any form of "hiatus" when it's posted! =D

 

Yes ugh! >o<

Yeah, plus one more creative artist in the world makes just that much more of the different views portrayed in art! I love to see how people see things and imagine and create, it's just like "yay amazingness >///w///<" and all of that so yeah!

Yeah =/ Agreed.

Yup it's super sad and a real shame ._. It's like the thieves just wanna shut them in to be unseen. *sad* Bad people!

Yup yup!

 

Yup x3 Wonderful wonders!

Yeah, I'll probably put a watermark over something I'm just like "BUUU TOO VALUABLE" but then again I might make something too valuable when just doodling LOL! I have a thing for wanting to make things pretty... did that make sense?

 

 

This leaves me with yet another question; what do you think of Photobucket for uploading images? Not asking necessarily if you use it, but now that I think, do you? How good is it? I've considered making an account and uploading things there for my art on here. I feel like it's too "idk who uploaded this but I'll just take it" on something like tinypic or something like that, and I don't know exactly what's safe for that. If I could've I would've done DeviantArt a LONG time ago, but I can't OTL My mom does not approve sadly. ;_;

 

 

*Deep breath* BUT ANYWAYS THAT TOOK FOREVER BY SCROLLING UP AND DOWN IN THIS REPLY MESSAGE LOL! SORRY I'M SLOW TO REPLYYYY BUUUHH!!! *falls over exhausted* I... I think I need two gravestones.. for... for both of my hands now... and... and all ten of my fingers...... buuuhh...that was a lot of typing... XP

 

 

edit: OMG AND NOW TO REPLY TO THE PM SO I'M NOT DONE YET SO LEMME GO LOOK AT THAT NOW ROFL! (not complaining lol)

The two I talk to most are twins,) older than me, but they're still very friendly and I like them a lot! =D Goals are good but I have AWFUL motivation with them. =/ I actually have been working on a comic of my own, kinda. But the process is so slow >o< More of, I'm slow. I'm a very lazy and unmotivated person when it comes to goals, believe it or not, so it's hard for me to complete a goal... >>; ...I really should learn to start small.....yeah...

And yup xd.png.png you too!

 

Mhm! (saying this too much maybe lol sorry)

 

Uuu I feel the shower of disappointment already >O< I'm not that good, but UUU I'm also dying of your sweetness and encouragement ;u;

Yey I hope to not fall into any form of "hiatus" when it's posted! =D

 

Yes ugh! >o<

Yeah, plus one more creative artist in the world makes just that much more of the different views portrayed in art! I love to see how people see things and imagine and create, it's just like "yay amazingness >///w///<" and all of that so yeah!

Yeah =/ Agreed.

Yup it's super sad and a real shame ._. It's like the thieves just wanna shut them in to be unseen. *sad* Bad people!

Yup yup!

 

Yup x3 Wonderful wonders!

Yeah, I'll probably put a watermark over something I'm just like "BUUU TOO VALUABLE" but then again I might make something too valuable when just doodling LOL! I have a thing for wanting to make things pretty... did that make sense?

 

 

This leaves me with yet another question; what do you think of Photobucket for uploading images? Not asking necessarily if you use it, but now that I think, do you? How good is it? I've considered making an account and uploading things there for my art on here. I feel like it's too "idk who uploaded this but I'll just take it" on something like tinypic or something like that, and I don't know exactly what's safe for that. If I could've I would've done DeviantArt a LONG time ago, but I can't OTL My mom does not approve sadly. ;_;

 

 

*Deep breath* BUT ANYWAYS THAT TOOK FOREVER BY SCROLLING UP AND DOWN IN THIS REPLY MESSAGE LOL! SORRY I'M SLOW TO REPLYYYY BUUUHH!!! *falls over exhausted* I... I think I need two gravestones.. for... for both of my hands now... and... and all ten of my fingers...... buuuhh...that was a lot of typing... XP

 

 

edit: OMG AND NOW TO REPLY TO THE PM SO I'M NOT DONE YET SO LEMME GO LOOK AT THAT NOW ROFL! (not complaining lol)

 

edit edit: fixed things

 

omgLOL. gg and ikr?? i was checking my email a lot bc i saw on tumblr that they were giving demos away and i was like omg zooms wants

my friend got like three demo codes for some reason so she gave them away to others xd.png

 

ooo thank you!! <33 i know what you mean my attention span is literally -1000

 

aaa yeah :cc i guess if you're too negative about something it starts to really weigh on the people in your life, right? so it's always good to be positive--maybe not all of the time as no one can do that, but at least an effort is made, hm? : ^ )

 

i'm sure there is / v \ dA actually has some pretty great ones too!! a lot of artists on there are really talented.

 

i feel i feel yeee

always good!! c: i'm rly thankful for my friends omg they're great

it really is!! <33 i love psychology so much i can't wait until gr 12 since we have a psychology course in highschool and im like zooms i want

ooo that sounds so cool!! <33 definitely a good way to past time, yeah! c: i'm the same, but i take a notebook to write. xd.png

 

omg aww ;; i feel ;; my mom just got so busy it was like aaa

 

ohh are we really?? that's so cool!! well then, i suppose we can both work in the subjects we're learning and what we're strong at!! <33

and ooo thank you!! tbh i'm vain i think bragging is all right as long as it's not majorly overdone. still thank you omg <33 i'm always worried i might go over the line w bragging when i talk. xd.png

write more, then! c: it really is fun to write omg

ohh thank you <33 honestly i'd love to post more recent stuff but i write a lot of fanfiction and that would be really weird for people to read w/o context or knowing the characters, and my originals i'm always so embarrassed bc i'm like oh no are they okay characters is this realistic did i do something wrong cries

maybe soon, though!! i did have this really good idea i typed out on my phone and i might continue it. c:

oh goD I FEEL SO MUCH,,, that's me with both writing and drawing, honestly. xd.png while i'm proud of my development since then, old stuff makes me want to facepalm so hard tbh

 

omg aww don't worry!! i'm pretty sure they enjoy talking to you <33 and besides, i know how you feel omg a lot of my author friends are years older than me, and my artist friends are younger and both sides are super super good so i'm like ????????????????? what is this actually

oh GOD I FEEL my goals are literally so so bad at the beginning of the year i was like ok i'm gonna ampt up my chinese studies bc i want to be able to translate literature back and forth but nope 2014 is coming to a close and i can still barely read BY E i have the worst experience with goals in the world i'm so lazy omg

ohh really??? good luck with your comic!!! i'd love to see more of it <333

i feel aaaaa i'm so lazy and unmotivated too :cc plus my mood swings up and down so it's hard for me to consistently work on a goal day in and out i envy those who can tbh

but yeah starting out small is a good idea!!! that way you have a goal you can reach and all those things will help build to what you ultimately want!!

 

oh don't worry about it i repeat words too. xd.png

 

ooo don't!!! i'm sure you're wonderful <33 don't put yourself down!!

ooo thank you so much ; v ; i like encouragement and omg you flatter me i'm not sweet <333

hopefully not!! c: though don't stress about it too much--it's okay to take little breaks here and there!

 

omgyesyes i feel so much tbh i love art so much i just love looking at art in any shape or form ( even writing is art in a way!! ) and i love looking at the creators and everything that's made it's just all so beautiful <33 that's why i love encouraging people to do what they love--no matter what it is, they'll find a way to make it something they enjoy doing and a fresh perspective to give to others!!

aaa yeah exactly :c

 

oh yes oh yes / v \

aaa i know what you mean!! make two copies, then? one is the original really pretty copy and the other is the one with the watermark you're going to show online--the other you can just send to your close friends or save for the future or something. c: i think that's how a lot of artists do it!

 

ohh!!! photobucket is actually really good : ^ ) i used it for a while when i started drawing!! ( rn i use gyazo bc i'm lazy as heck it's basically just a screencap service it doesn't save the drawing or anything )

but yeah i really like photobucket as an image sharing thingything!! i can't remember too well but i'm pretty sure you can set your pictures to private too so not just anyone can view them--overall, it's a really nice website and i would recommend using it to upload your pictures! c:

aww :cc i hope you can get a dA in the future!! i don't use mine often but it is pretty handy sometimes when keeping up with my favourite artists.

 

OH GOD I FEEL IT TOOK ME A WHILE TOO I WAS LIKE SHEMUR

//falls over too add two more gravestones to that for my hands and my brain thanks

it really was xd.png still, really nice to chat!! c:

 

YEEE LEMME GO DO THAT NOW TOO TBH

shhh it's ok to complain i know it's a lot of typing c: thank you for waiting so patiently!!

 

oo tht's ok i probably have like 10000 typos

 

Ohhh, I like this a lot! =D Keep going with it! I like this stuff here x3

 

Don't worry about it, (as I've replied via PM) I hope things settle down soon!!! x3

 

ohh thank you so much!! <33 i actually learnt a lot more in class today so i'll be trying out more techniques soon enough. c:

Nice painting! Really cool to see more different art mediums from you. ^^

 

It's really nice overall, there's a lot of minor brightness differences that allow each stroke to be seen, and the strokes themselves are very nice as well.

 

The only two issues that I really see with it. First off, the fur direction is in an arc, which isn't very realistic, and actually gives the pelt a bumpy, weird feel. Also, the light patches have a bit too much contrast, and it'd probably look better if it was blended a little bit.

 

Great work!

shhh it's ok to complain i know it's a lot of typing c: thank you for waiting so patiently!!

 

oo tht's ok i probably have like 10000 typos

WELCUM *^*

 

 

Lol yah So you got one, eh? =3 I'm happy for you! I must say, it's fairly good as far as I've gone (not very far btw LOL!) But we'll see as we go on =P

 

Hahaha I might relate!

 

Yeah, it does =/ Honestly though, I'm sometimes somewhat negative (not in a grumpy way, but rather a more lacking-self-confidence way,) and my mom is like "don't be mopey!" here and there and all of that ^^; I try my best to be in a good mood though, especially when I'm out and about.

 

Oh yes, definitely! I tend to look around every now and then and I find some nice things sometimes! Good for inspiration at times!

 

Yes, it's good to be thankful for friends! It's also good when you find friends that actually are friends ^^; Sadly I'm not too connected with most of my IRL friends because of IRL crap and all of that junk =/ But I still try anyway, because friends are important!

 

That's cool! I'm sure you'll have a good time!

Yeah, I find it very good to pass time! xd.png Though I get carpal tunnel sometimes, where it really sucks when I'm out because I don't have a splint for my wrist =/ If you know how that is. Some people don't know about it, so ^^;

 

Yeah, my mom is especially busy now; I don't see her as much at home because of her work schedule, so it's sad. But I try to be around her a lot when I can!

 

Yup yup! And then we'd be THE ULTIMATE COMBO WITH NO WEAKNESSES BUUHUHUHUUHUUU lol jk jk rofl xd.png

 

Yeah, and as long as it doesn't hurt anyone or make them feel bad! =3 Otherwise it's not too bad x3

Yeah, I really shouuuuld~! I always have a hard time writing romance or anything like that; I seem to enjoy adventure/fantasy writing. Fantasy is especially good because you can make a lot go around something that doesn't exist! x3 If that makes sense.

 

I totally understand how that is! I'm always worried about how my stuff is and comes out and if it makes sense to people reading it and aaaaahhh a bunch more ;;

Oooo!!! Omg I'd love to see it if you did it! 8D

Ugh yes sharing feels ;; It's like "n-n-nooo why did why- just- OMG WHY!? Th-the proportions are just so bad omg hack cough gag DIE" when I look over my REALLLY old art! ><; I just feel so awful about it lololol

 

LOL yah! And I'm sure they do, as much as I feel like a bother sometimes ;; but I feel like a bother often anyways~. When people are like "uugh just wth do you wunt" I'm like "I-I'M SORRY IF I BOTHERED YOU, B-BUT ;_;" and all of that lol.

 

LOL I tried learning Hiragana once and I failed tragically LOL it was supposed to be "able to learn in around a month" and I'm MOOOONTHS later and I haven't even touched in a long time! Laziness rules me a lot sadly >>;

 

Ahhh ;A; Thank you very much ahhhh <333 Sometimes I feel so unmotivated but THANK YOU for the good-luck-wish ^^ (is that wat you call it lol)

 

Yeah, when people can chase after things quickly I'm just like "How do you even? EwE;" and all of that. I wish I was that motivated lol.

 

I really should~ x3 It is a good idea indeed. And yup!

 

Lol good then I guess I'm good then huh. >w<

 

Uuuu ty and yw LOL idk I guess the flattering back and forth can be said with both xd.png

Thanks I'll try to not stress lol.

 

Yup yup me too! =) I enjoy those sorts of things and I like seeing what people do and what they end up doing with themselves~ art is truly lovely <3

yah =/

 

I guess that works, huhuhuuuu (pardon my weird typed-out laugh lol). I know a lot of artists use watermarks for all sorts of things, and I feel that my signature isn't enough sometimes for some reason ^^; It just feels easy to erase or something so I'm like "bahhhh what if someone gets rid of it somehow? ;_;" and all of that lololol.

 

Yeah, I ended up getting a Photobucket recently for my arts~ found that was the best way for things in case I for some reason NEEDED to get my art off there quickly or something. Handy, I suppose~! <3 I'm glad to hear it's a nice one though!

Yeah ;_; Thanks! And I gotcha!

 

LOL yus I had like more than half of this done last night but then I couldn't do the rest cause I really had to go ugh it was like midnight here XP So I finished it today rofl.

Yup yup it's still nice! c=

 

LOL and yw x3

 

Lol I'm perfectionist so I don't like to just leave my typos if I notice them not sure about you X'DDD
