On a serious note:Edit: Thank you to those people who were willing to take time out of their day to cheer me up. I get like this a lot, and things like this pop up. Even though I did seriously consider it, only now do I realise what I want to do.So to be blunt, Natalie... Fuck you.Given recent... admissions, I am honestly considering on giving up drawing.Now I know plenty of people do this, and this isn't even the first time I'm saying this, but this time round there's a serious connotation to it, and here's why:Recently, my girlfriend admitted to the following: I have not improved in my art ever since we've met. And if you want a time-frame for that, that would be about 3.5 years.I always personally thought that I had made progress, but it seems as though outside perception disagrees... And if I take into account my followers' decreasing interest in my work, it would seem as though many people share the same sentiment. Perhaps I am just a talentless hack who has had the wool pulled over my eyes in
Not deadDisappointing, I know.Anyway...I'm going to keep this short and brief: The Group 10 Robot Masters poster didn't do very well in proportion to the time and effort I spent on it, so I don't think labouring to do another one is worth it. Should I just post the pencil drawings for the other groups directly here instead of spending days-worth of time digitising them? It's be a whole lot faster and will help to show that I'm still doing something.Unless you think I really ought to inject all my effort into making something like that again. Just letting you know that in the end, the poster made no money (yeah, whoever voted on the poll that I'd get money off of it were dead wrong), and had a meager response.So, thoughts?
Breaking in 2014 with a feature journalThe copy-paste stuff:For the first 15 people who comment on this journal, I will feature one of their characters. I'll also tell you what I like about them. [I will go to your gallery and pick one character, you don't need to tell me which one].If you comment, please do the same in your journal, putting the tagger (or original journalist) in the first slot. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone! I'm looking forward on you!The features:1. jasperoura :iconJasperoura:If any of you know her, you'll know that Jasperoura, aka Nora, has quite a myriad of characters. But my favourite of hers is always going to be Jasper. His design, personality and powers are interesting, and Jasperoura's drawings of him always capture his image perfectly. This image in particular (that I recently favourited) is coloured, shaded, drawn and lighted exceptionally well, and is probably my favourite Jasper art to dat
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, guys!I am so sorry for being gone for so long. Uni life drains a man.But hopefully in 2014 I'll manage my workload better and be able to upload more stuff for you guys to groan at Either way, I hope you guys have a good holiday and a great 2014!
Oops...Underestimated my maths work, guys...OKAY OKAY OKAYTHIS WEEKTHIS WEEKI'LL GET AROUND TO IT... Still not sure about uploading, though.
Okay, guys...I SWEAR I'LL COME BACK.I KNOW LOADS OF THINGS HAVE EATEN UP MY TIME, LIKE MATHS PROBLEMS AND SHIT.BUT THIS WEEKEND I PROMISE TO GO OVER MOST OF THE DEVIATIONS I SKIPPED OVER AND I'LL COMMENT ON THEM.SO EXPECT LIKE AN ONSLAUGHT OF COMMENTS ON ANCIENT ART.I'M SO SORRY.I MIGHT NOT UPLOAD ART THOUGH.APPARENTLY PLENTY OF PEOPLE TELL ME I SUCK AT IT.ONLINE AND OTHERWISE.MAYBE, MAYBE NOT. WE'LL SEE, DEPENDS ON MY MOOD.I DON'T KNOW, I FEEL VERY CONFLICTED AND CONFUSED RIGHT NOW.
A cold slap of realityUrgh... Super down and all.Let me explain my situation right now: I'm heading off to university on Saturday, and once I'm there, I'm sure my time to draw and stuff will reduce tremendously. I probably will hardly come here, since I'll be really busy with work. I'm always hoping I won't be, but when I gotta work, I gotta work. Plain and simple.Second: I've been away for about 2 weeks, and I've got A LOT of catching up to do. I'm not going to ignore my duties to comment, I'm no hypocrite (well, I am but anyway). I did manage to slice away deviations that don't need my attention, so the actual number of deviations I need to look over is... 51. Manageable.Third: I'm losing my motivation to draw once again. It's really been driven home to me that what I'm drawing is just not interesting enough. And those aren't my words. Those were someone else's regarding my rant (which is still drawing attention, for some reason), and it's pointless to argue back. The evidence really speaks for itself.
Gone for two weeks.Not that I've been active on here to begin with =.=When I get back, I swear to comment on stuff I've been too lazy to comment on ;3;Anyway, see you guys soon!
This video...Where has it been all my life?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1YWWTjDmZQ
Please Listen.I just got an email from a concerned parent. Her daughter has an account on DA, and apparently she copies and traces my drawings. I looked on her profile and confirmed that, yes, she did trace and gave minimal (sometimes no) credit. The reason her mother messaged me was because a few people were apparently sending her harsh messages asking her to give credit. She even got a few death threats.Listen...I'm going to say this all again because I guess it needs reiterating: When it comes to my art, I do not mind young artists copying or tracing my drawings in hopes of developing their skills, or because they are still learning the way of things. If you see someone posting a traced or heavily referenced drawing that does not mention the original picture, please DO NOT immediately jump to aggression. If something like this (art theft/style theft) really gets on your nerves, then I understand why you might be angry upon seeing it, but you must find the maturity to take a breath, and

The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
