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.
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.
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!
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 OKAY
I'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!
Warning - Pedophile on DAIMPORTANT - PLEASE READ
It seems a registered sex offender is back online. Glenn Glatz has been using the username SoThatsWhatsUp for a few months now, using a young girl's face as a coverup for a while. I didn't want to get involved again, but now that I know it's him I wanted to warn my watchers that he's back.
Please do not attack him, do not message him. You may report if you see fit, but that's all we can do for now. This is just a warning because I know I have young watchers and this man is rather sick, he'd sooner harass those against him into submission before admitting he's in the wrong.
It's come to my attention that Glenn is trying to threaten those who are spreading this with law suits. Let it be known, there's no way in hell he can sue you for warning your watchers about a registered sex offender. As you can search Glenn Glatz's name on google, and find him as a sexual predator wit

Messy, it's now clearly obvious to me that you've jinxed us.
Remember your 'excuse' for drawing more girls in swimsuits?
You mean everyone keeps asking about bikini cuz of me?
Not that I had anything against girls in swimsuits...
No doubt! Especially after you said S3rb4n 's Voltsurge looks really great in night lights
Well, I must admire, that we have improved our anatomy skill a bit. But we need to improve other skills too.
I want to draw something fancy, like cute dress or fantasy elven outfit.
Papyrus x Reader x SansPapyrus laughed eagerly and loudly as he and his brother Sans walked back to their stations.
“-And did you see how badly that human failed on my last puzzle?!It goes to show that I will be a great Royal Guard!NYEH HEH HEH!”Papyrus said, praising himself.Sans, who usually doesn’t leave his post (out of laziness) had to laugh also.”Is it really so hard to turn Xs into Os?” Sans chuckled.
As the Skelo-Bros neared Papyrus station, they noticed two little little legs squirming out as if they were stuck.Sans glanced over at the legs as if it was as usual as a hyper Lesser Dog, while Papyrus looked dumbstruck.”ANOTHER HUMAN?!”Papyrus yelled, more trying to get attention then being surprised.The small person automatically fell to the ground, fearfully clutching a flip-phone that had been given to her from her monster ‘guardian’.
Papyrus looked down upon the young girl as Sans merely stood back, completely cool.The girl, frozen with fear, lo
Doflamingo x Reader: Family Matters
There have been many things you have seen on Baby5’s face, but only rarely have you ever seen her looking glum. Most times you’ve seen her, she’s either exuberant, furious, or comically crying, depending on her “boyfriend” situation. Other than that, she was always relatively calm, with a slight smile.
“Little Miss, what has you feeling so down?” You walk up to her side, putting a hand on her shoulder.
“(name), I wasn’t expecting to see you.” She sighed, and then chuckled a little. “How many times have I told you to call me by my name? I don’t need to be called ‘Little Miss’.”
“I will continue calling you ‘Little Miss’ as long as I am a servant working here at the castle and you are considered Family by the Young M
PLEASE READ - The Ransomware EpidemicPlease share, fave and spread this journal. You could help many people on DeviantArt protect their computers from this horrific cyberattack and raise awareness about the issue to those who haven't yet heard of it.
Funny how all these years of me picking and choosing updates to keep my computer functioning how I want it (you know... to have what you paid for and keep my product without others stealing it and modifying it *cough*badupdates*cough* ... basic consumer rights... but anyway) came to haunt me.
So I finally decided that I'd bite the bullet and update my updates... only to find out Windows Update was refusing to update and would forever stay stuck "searching for updates". Just my luck. When I really don't want updates they try to install, and when I really need them they don't.
Anyhow, why am I so desper
