my WRITING, Please Look :)




No excuses, I just don't have the money. I'm using the points for you guys and real life demands more than I can spend. To own these, any of them, would make my chaotic life a little more worth smiling about. ♥

Hello, it's been a while. ARTBLOCK!

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 8, 2014, 8:37 AM
Wow, hey, how are you all? I always see art pages that haven't been active since the middle of last year and it makes me sad... now I am one of them. Let's just cut to the chase: I'm in a bad artists block. :\ Can't really say where/when it began, and I have other things going on in my life that also push for the top priority. Working on myself is one of the important things right now, and I feel that may be where my art block is stemming from. Also, my passion is M.I.A. right now, and that is another big reason for not being able to create anything new. Sure, I doodle in my sketchbook every now and again, and you can see those drawings on my instagram: . But for the most part, I'm not happy with anything I doodle right now. Sometimes I'm jealous of those artists who have a game they love and draw fanart for it all of the time, it provides an outlet for their drawing and a community to share it with. Sure, I love stuff like The Last of Us and various other games, but nothing that I can think of drawing for. GAHHHHHHH I don't know. Feelin' like a fail. :|

Too much of a procrastinator for my own good,

otherwise I'm sure I'd be farther artistically than I am now. I am always surrounding myself in a form of art. Whether it be drawing, music, movies, writing, books, or other artists, hell.. even just me in my own


I don't think I could breath with out it. I am a huge advocate of personal projects.

For more art,

including sketches and unfinished work/ideas, like my page on Facebook by clicking the Facebook icon below. ♥

2 deviants said Llama what?

Useful Stuff

How to get exposure on DeviantARTDon't have time to read right now? Fav this entry and read it later. Faving it may also show another artist this entry, and it may help them, too. (:
Also, check out the one I did for groups! :love:

Let's get started...
So, to make this unravel easily in a sensible way, I am going to approach these tips as if one was just starting here on dA. The timeline will be from opening a new account. Even if this isn't your case, look at it like we are talking about this in a Fresh Start kind of way. Some of the earlier steps may be super obvious to you guys, but bear with me!
:iconsmile--plz:Have a Gallery
No, I'm not being sarcastic! Haha. I don't just mean this in the obvious sense of "have a gallery" but fill it. Just remember that everything you post to your gallery represents you. Anything you post can be subjected to comments, critiques, and the occasional troll. Just have more than 5 pieces in your gallery, at least.
How to get your GROUP some exposure!:iconstudytimeplz: Now, I'm no genius, and my group although doing well, is no big name. But along the way, I guess I did something right, so I'm going to brainstorm all of my steps for you guys who have your own group or are thinking of starting one! :)
WARNING: Groups take a lot of time, if you want them to be great. Make sure you know that going into making one, because if you don't have the time to make it, what's the point? No one wants to join an inactive group. =P
Just like I did with my Deviant Exposure entry, I'm going to approach this as if you are just starting out. Everyone likes fresh starts, right? :iconihappyloveitplz:
:iconnosebleedingplz:Make it pretty
Okay, so fast-forwarding passed all the obvious steps of creating it, let's assume you now have your group name and page. "Make it pretty" sounds kind of... superfluous, doesn't it? Excessive.  But it's not, really! It is necessary and I will tell you how it will help: your
