PracticeBy now everybody already knows that becoming a good artist doesn't come from talent alone. On contrary; talent is a myth. Like the famous quote goes: "Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration". Meaning so much that even with a good idea and a bright mind, you still have to work your ass off in order to achieve something. While this makes mad skills available for basically everybody, I still hear many people complain about practice being a rather boring thing, or about them practicing a lot but still getting nowhere.
So I thought; Oh well... Why no article about practice?
Conscious vs unconscious practice
First of all lets divide practice in roughly two types. You have the conscious type of practice. This is the kind of practice in which you're sitting down and thinking to yourself "Hell yeah! I'm gonna draw some <subject> today to get better at this!". And then there's the unconscious type of practice. The type of practice that is often more playful an

Art and value of timeDear, deviantart fellow artists
Our lives go by so fast and the time for what we really want to do is limited. So, how to wisely value our time, how to make the best of every single day and keep on creating?
Here are some of my thoughts about the topic and I hope that they might be helpful.
Sort what are the most important things you need to do as soon as possible and start with that. Make a list with what needs to be done and sort them by how necessary it is to do them, how much time it will aproximately take and how the result could impact your life. We have to make constant sacrifices in order to achieve our goals - instead of watching that useless youtube video, instead of checking e-mail and social media sites all the time, instead of whining that there is no time, but actually using what we have - everyone of us have 24h in a day, the difference between

Get featured! [feature for points]After some while of experimentation, I'm glad to announce that the feature thing is there to stay.

AKUXBLOSSOM OFFICIALLY CANONLadies and gentlemen, friends and foes, etc:
We are gathered here today in honor of our precious babies, to celebrate a triumph previously unknown to our kind. Yes, the small but devout followers of the cult of Akublossism can now savor the sweet taste of satisfaction knowing their wildest dreams are at hand. I speak of absolution, my friends. I speak of the glory of the massive and indestructible ship we sail, and our conquest of the turbulent waters of the internet to spread our gospel to every fandom-shore.
I speak of endless possibilities, or more specifically, ONE possibility that has been acknowledged by Cartoon Network.
Some of you may be aware of IDW Publishing's new endeavors with Cartoon Network properties. Some of you may even be aware of one such project, Super Secret Crisis War, a work that includes both Aku and Blossom in its plot.
Long have we awaited this day, and at last it has come. Today may it be known that when the disbelieving world looks down upon us as fo

3. Fashion photos with your capitol-crazy designs.

Poetic PsychosisIn thirty seconds, the next shell would fall. Every night was the same, but every night Lorenzo experienced it as if it were the first time. His throat felt swollen; breathing was hard. He glanced around at the others; young men like him who had been shipped out in the name of honour and freedom. There was no honour in this, no freedom. Only death behind your eyelids, and a fear so gutting, that it carved out your innards and left you a hollow husk. Lorenzo tried to breathe, tried to assure himself that he was still whole, still made of flesh. They had lied when they told him he was ready.
Matteo ran towards him, arms out, rifle swinging uselessly at his side. He shouted for him to run, but Lorenzo remained motionless, unable to move as his friend’s warning was lost in the constant blare of gunfire. None of them were ready.
“The cycle is repeating. It is not safe.” The voice was soft and weak, yet it carried over the gunfire and battle cries without impediment.
