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 watchersHi.Monthly Features for my watchers 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

a shiver ran down my spine.

El Tren del Norte—Papi, cuéntame una historia.El Tren del Norte by o2xygeno
Volteé a verlo con el ceño fruncido, casi regañándolo con la mirada por no estar dormido. Era tarde para que estuviese despierto pidiendo por un cuento. Sin embargo, cerré mi libro, lo dejé en la mesa y me acerqué hasta su cama.
Mi cara al principio fue severa. Él escondió su sonrisa tras sus cobijas. Terminé soltando una risa con aquello. Suspiré:
—¿Cuántas veces te voy a decir que soy malo con los cuentos? Nunca se me ocurre nada interesante.
—¡Eso no es verdad! —Puso un puchero de pedigüeño— ¡Anda, papi! ¡Cuéntame una historia!
Me acomodé mejor en el sillón que tenía al lado de su cama -me sentaba ahí las noches en las que él no podía dormir debido a su miedo a la oscuridad-. Me rasqué la barba meditabundo. Él me observaba expectante, esperando a que comenzara con el típico “
It Was Never You...It really wasn't...It Was Never You... by WordOfChen
And I know that I can twist this truth as much as I want...
Whenever I'm sober, when I know I can put up that fake plastic smile;
Just a few formal words that burn like acid from a liar's lips!
"Differences in personality, a divergence in ideals..."
Please, fucking, SPARE ME!
Because when I look in this mirror, I know.
When I see myself looking back at me, I know.
Right here, right in front of my own blackened self;
Those eyes that both reflect and stare into my dingy soul.
I was the problem.
I was the instigator.
I was the perpetrator.
And when I had broken every last bit of her,
I was the one, who let it all fall to pieces.
So please, you don't have to feel sorry for me,
I am a bastard and I've got a very special place in hell waiting for me...
