Journal Entry: Sat Jun 2, 2012, 8:09 PM



:bulletgreen:June 21

If you have a couple of minutes to spare, I hope you could read this little blog entry I made 09shootingstar90.tumblr.com/po…

It's just a friendly reminder to all of you. Opinions are very important to us artists and it's not only about handling is important, but delivering them has been one of my concerns lately.

Remember, we are all entitled to our own opinions but keep in mind that respect is not an option.

A good day to you, wonderful people.

:bulletred:June 19

Just came by to announce some stuff.

First of all, Honor and Glory won't be updated for a while. Considering my schedule is so fucked up, I couldn't get the time to work on my personal art any more. I've been working for school and a special project so any updates on HG for this month is highly unlikely. I don't try to rush it because I wouldn't want to give my audience a half-assed story. Still, I wish to thank everyone who take their time to read and appreciate it! I'll do my best.

Second, art trades will be on-hold as well. I just needed to tell you all this because I am plagued by guilt when I work on something that has nothing to do with my trades. I want to let you all know that I won't forget it and like I said with HG, I will work on it if I find a little time in my schedule.

Third, my commissions are my priority out of all the art I'm supposed to make. I'm sorry if they take very long to finish. I don't want my customers to pay for something that isn't even half as good as I can make them so please understand.

Lastly, I want to thank all the gracious comments you wonderful people leave on my works. I can't reply to all of them but I gratefully read them! Every feedback counts and I really appreciate  it all, the faves and the comments. The same goes for my new watchers. You're all awesome!

Hello everyone! Hope you're all well.

Tomorrow marks the end of my unproductive summer vacation and the start of the first semester of the new school year. I'll be in my junior year in my college and well, I expect the subjects to not get less hard than they already were. But no matter, I enjoy it more than anything else anyway.

This could mean that I'll hardly be online now, since you know, commissions will come simultaneously with schooling for me so I'll be really busy. Well not that I'm not in any day anyway. I'm sorry I don't get to talk more than I used to. Things on my side have been going through constant changes and I had to cope up with it.

As for my art, well, you can see I've been trying to submit whatever I can. It won't change much, I guess. The art trades will come around eventually. I haven't exactly been in the mood to do proper Kung Fu Panda art as of late and well, I don't want my part of the trades to be less than what I'm already lacking.

I feel so insufficient lately and well, you can tell that matters at home aren't really helping. Maybe it will all change when I move to the dormitories next week.

So anyway, thank you for taking your time and reading my journal! And also, PayPal commissions are still open. Commission info can be found at the right bar of my journal.

Well i agree with what you wrote though it kind of makes me feel guilty because i'm now slightly paranoid that i may have hurt your feelings and if i had i'm sorry though i'm sure i haven't.

Also i must agree if your just going out your way to start arguements or upset people don't bother because think about it whats the point? it dosen't make you better than others, it dosen't make life easier all it proves is your a nasty imature peice of work. So don't bother waisting other peoples time just get on with your life without hurting others and hey maybe you'll make some good friends along the way.

Amen sis, I say unless you made it (got a job in art ), when it comes to bashing artists whom have made it over the hurdle...one doesn't have a pot to piss in LOL but that's just my opinion. I have seen many fandoms I never thought exists and ended up falling in love with it. I can't stand haters, yep haters. There is a difference between a critic and a hater. Critics are helpful in a lot of ways, haters go around vomiting on the fandoms people enjoy =A=;;

My art isn't super crazy awesome (yet, trolol), though, I am better than most people around me in my life. I can't say I've ever been bashed for my art by anyone though. Okay, save my color theory professor. But, that class and major were both objective based. Got the hell out of that program. Maybe you or the others here have encountered it though. I actually don't know why someone would do that. Jealousy seems to simple an explanation. I envy people their superior skills, though, I'm never bitter about it. I think some people just look at the creations of others and tell themselves, "I'll never be that good, so I'll just do everything to make that creator feel bad about themselves." It's kind of sad. I look at the looks of others and say, "Damn. I want to be that good now. But, I understand that it will take dedication and practice." No one is a prodigy at anything.


And------I'm rambling. :blush:
I feel a little presumptuous responding to the comments on someone else's journal.

Oh it's quiet alright and no you are not rambling, I like reading feedbacks on how they feel. I think everyone has their own views on what art really is. I find darker themes like Coraline, Tim Burton movies and even Invader Zim to my liking, as opposed to other brightly colored shows. But that doesn't make them any less ^U^ desirable to watch. But I wouldn't bash it simply because of what it is and how it's drawn ^U^ I politely let others know 'it's not my cup of tea' but I at least try and make an effort to watch it first because making a personal decision :huggle::love:

To be honest I can't stand Disney fairytale movies, I have strong feelings against it more on how they practically raped the original stories of it's creativity. My feelings are moral based XD

Very true. I enjoy stories/movies/shows with darkER overtones that are heavy on intrigue and character development, with just some action here and there. Franchises like Gundam, Battlestar Galactica, Dune, Stargate SG-1 and others appeal to me particularly. Though, I do indulge in the occasional action packed smackdown of a movie every now and then. I like to give everything that chance to catch my interest. I'm finding it hard to believe now that I used to think Kung Fu Panda, for example, was just for kids. That it was going to be just a another Jack Black-Libs fest that had nothing to offer me. Dammit if it's not my favorite animated film ever now. xD Glad I gave it that chance. And, that's really what some people need to learn to do. To many people take things at face value and judge them without having even experienced them.

Let's not forget guilty pleasures either. I like CATS the musical. Have since I was five. People with little tact can call me "gay" for liking it as much as they want. I'm quite secure in my masculinity. Besides, the songs are catchy as hell.

I have to say that I probably have outgrown most Disney films. Though, there are some that will always have a special place. Lion King, Toy Story, Finding Nemo, FANTASIA.

I have to agree as well. Though, do understand that there are people in this world who will never understand the value of being tactful. There are some people who live hard lives in which they are not allowed to express there opinions. Even here in the "Land of the Free". Some people express negative opinions of things and insist on expanding on those opinions, because it's a way of feeling like they have control over something.

I don't want to talk everyone's ears off though. :P

I could discuss the psychology of this for hours. xD

That's a possible reason. Maybe it's just because I'm really sensitive when it comes to "respect" issues =w= I'm raised by a family who knows their limit when throwing insults and whatnot so I guess that affected my perspective.
I'm pretty much feeling better now. I wasn't personally attacked, just to clear things up, but I just find certain people's attitude disturbing in one way or the other.

I understand completely where you are coming from. The whole respect thing is a huge issue here in the United States. Many kids don't respect their elders, don't respect each other. It goes well beyond just how opinions are expressed. To me, it's about how we treat each other in general. Just today, one of the news headlines was about two middle school boys who tormented and bullied their 68-year old bus monitor, recorded it, then put the video up on YouTube. It's really shameful that people seem to have little to no consciousness of other people's feelings or other people's sense of self-worth.

I admit that one of the primary reasons that I post art on here is for the positive feedback. Art is the one skill that I have that I am truly thankful for and proud of. And, it's nice to have a place where it can be recognized. I've seen people just completely bash another person's piece of art that they put hours of dedication into because they are either jealous to an extreme degree or disagree with the imagery on a fundamental level. It's never happened to me, but, I certainly hope it doesn't. People like to act like words mean nothing. But, words are far more powerful than most people make them out to be.

I've watched that video and I was very much heartbroken. People could be so cruel ):

That's very true. It's important that people think things through before doing something that's very offensive. They may not know it or act ignorant about it but that doesn't make them look any better as a person.

No sis, I totally have to agree with every single bit of your blog.
Bashers are mostly the people who gives this site a bad reputation. They give shit to small things and would gladly ruin other people's fandoms. Those people often act too rash on the subject that they never think of second thoughts before posting it, unless they're brave enough and knows what would happen to them, but I say this few people are quite an ignoramus. XD I don't care if they see my comment, I DO WHAT I WANT anyway. :I
There's a difference between critic and insult, and I'll say, they were insulting the fandom much.
If they hate it with every piece of their heart, then they should learn to stay away from it.
HONESTLY though, for the haters.. what did it ever do to your fucking lives? :/ did they ruined your lovelife?
I find it rather funny to listen to their shabby consults and poor knowledge to fandoms. Seems they can't even get enough of the awesomeness from it. I do have some shows or things I don't like, but I will only say my opinions if it gets too much abuse.


....And lastly.. praise be to your Loki GIF. :headbang:

And no worries.
We all should deal with real life first. =)

Looking forward to the art work you'll upload.

And I know what you mean with wanting one's half of an Art Trade to be your best, but one not being at that level at the moment (as I'm going through this at the moment)... D|

Til the next one.

I'm excited for your junior year, new experiences but I can tell that you have a lot of stuff going on that is becoming a bit stressful, and I know you won't be on very much, but I'm letting you know I'm always here to talk to. RL comes before DA sis :huggle: so don't let posting and getting everything done like AT and commissions stress you out, do little by little, people by now should know how to be patient ^U^

Plus if we can't talk on DA you already know my email address, we can talk about anything you need to get off your chest ^U^
