Tips to avoid art blockHello everyone! It's been an awful ammout of time since I last wrote a journal, lately I just do stuff like features, giveaways, memes and etc, but today I feel like bringing back the old good journals I used to write.Tips to avoid art block by Libertades
Today I wanted to focus on tips to battle art block since... well, I see so many blocked artists lately and my friends get upset over it... also these are tips I actually use to avoid block, this will NOT guarantee you not getting an art block but I do hope this is helpful.
Art block... that annoying moment when you're drawing (or even if you are not) and all of your ideas fade away, as if you were unable to draw without having either cretivity, motivation or sense of anatomy (messy results), so I'll bring you these tips you can apply each time you feel like an art block is coming...
Tips before the block!
1. Don't keep it up!
I'm sure you've had that one time you were drawing something happi
Monthly Features for my watchers *EDIT*Hi.Monthly Features for my watchers *EDIT* by Libertades
Glad I got your attention! Because if you're my watcher, I need it
So as the title says, I've decided to start an interesting thing: feature my watchers each month!
Guys... I need to tell you something first:
I'm in awe with all of you, some my watchers, some a little bit more of friends... you've all supported me! A little while ago I was lonely in DA, I'd always be bored and depressed over so many small things and even though I used to become one of those awesome, cool popular artists like :icongriffsnuff: or :icontatchit: or :iconpurplekecleon: or even :icontuooneo:! Which I remember from many DDs, great things I admire and stuff else. But meh... I'm just Libertades from DA, but you know what? I'm happy because so many things have happened and I've took the initiative to watch a lot of people, help them improve and be more sociable, which has lead me to meet you guys.
I've improved greatly, thanks to some critiques and good pals that often request

"And here's my story:
I took my first ski lessons when I was five years old. After a few lessons, my father (who used to ski all over Europe) decided that he would go halfway down the ski slope and catch me when I came past in case I couldn't stop at the bottom of the slope. As I came towards him, he got ready to catch me, and I turned and went past him instead because I didn't know what he was doing. He turned to try to catch me, and he twisted his ankle and fell over. So I looked behind me to see what happened, stopped on the middle of the slope, and asked "Daddy, what are you doing face down in the snow?""
Thank you for sharing it :g
Being different is painfulI'm Lucian D'Amore, and I just feel so different from everybody. I have had to deal with the fact that I'm simply special. I'm different, and for me it's a hard fact of life. I have webbed feet, and traits of several other genders rather than just the original two. Also, I'm an indigo child/adult, I tool the official test (if you don't believe me, check out my front page), and also I'm an INFJ, which is like the rarest MBPI type, so that shows how difficult it is to be me.Being different is painful by Elitegengar
It's like there's a thick glass wall separating me from the rest of the human race. I'm so lonely. How is it my fault that everyone else is alike?? I didn't choose to be special. So God decided someone should be at least a little different, but how could he not have know that it would lead to such a miserable life?? I'm miserable, lonely, and everything because of my uniqueness.
I pray to God on a daily basis (sometimes if I'm too depressed I get too depressed to bother) and ask him "Why did I have to have a p
HappinessSuch sensitive souls are we, the human beingHappiness by Elitegengar
To exist, we are thrown into ecstasy or agony at a slight
We long for the golden abstraction at the end of time's rainbow:
The heaven of our minds. And we die every day at this persistence -
By our adversity to suffering we inadvertently create it
And if you so lust after happiness,
You will find that only pain lays in its wake
Angst| I am hemmed in | Disconnection |Angst by Elitegengar
| What is this world but a prison | I reside in |
| Fuck this place | Fuck these people |
| Never wished to live a life | But now I'm scared |
| Scared to death | Of death, of my demise |
| And now what? | I resent it, being | Chained to choice |
| Fettered to freedom | To breath these lungs |
| And how horrible | For freedom to couple with fear |
| Solitude: salvation, | yet: segregation, the slow rot |
| Company: illuminating longing, lonliness, | yet: life |
| Self-consciousness | A most sadistic construction |
| I am hemmed in | Between two blanks |
| And I know it | And I feel it |
| And what if the other?: | To die is just to change? |
| I would find myself again | Under the wrath of being |
| Of a different name | The forboding infinite |
| Of life and of pain |
| Whether to die is to dream | Or fated to forever sleep |
| Either way seems satans grace | Locked in this boundless place |
| For I am this | I am this prison |
| And so what is the m
