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
Lawful vs Helpful“All things are lawful,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful,” but not all things build up.Lawful vs Helpful by Libertades
Do you have what it takes to be ambitious and generous at the same time? Sometimes helping others is equal to helping yourself; have you ever thought you could thank your family for taking care of you by washing the dishes or sweeping a little before locking yourself up and watching some anime or drawing a lot? Sometimes words may be embarrassing to express, but actions will do much more very often. You sure think “I go to school. I do my chores. I am productive and grateful” but are you managing your spare time and free time well? Is summer just a time to slack off and do nothing for you? Or a huge chance to learn new things and improve your life while you can? There’s an endless amount of things you can do when there’s nothing in your way, other than spending your time doing things that you know you’ve been doing l
The Adventures of HoneyBatty Chapter 2The Adventures of HoneyBattyThe Adventures of HoneyBatty Chapter 2 by HoneyBatty16
Ch 2: Little Bat
The story began at the Enchanted Forest Mix Martial Arts Academy. King Lionel and HoneyBatty walked together to the administration room to register HoneyBatty in the academy. As they walked in, they were greeted by an old fox name Master Kitsune, who happens to be the owner of the school.
Master Kitsune: Ah... King Lionel, long time no see! (chuckles)
King Lionel: Kitsune. How are you, old friend?
They shook hands. As they about to talk, Master Kitsune noticed HoneyBatty standing nearby.
Master Kitsune: Queen Elmira...? Is that really you? You're alive! And you look.... younger.
HoneyBatty: Eh.... ?
King Lionel: Oh no, no, no, my friend. That is not Queen Elmira, this is her reincarnation.
Master Kitsune realizes his mistake and immediately apologizes to HoneyBatty.
Master Kitsune: I see, my word. (chuckles) I'm terribly sorry, Child. you share a very strong resemblance of Queen Elmira.
HoneyBatty: Um... thank you and no worries. (smiles aw

“You sure are persistent” Flowey growled “idiots like you shouldn’t exist, you’re just letting me kill you for fun, aren’t you?” his eyes turned black as night “What a sicko”
You didn’t move or say anything, you were just standing there in front of him with a stern expression
“What’s wrong, Frisk dear?” He said mockingly in Toriel’s voice, his vines arose near you, ready to strike a death blow “catnip got your tongue?”
But you didn’t move or speak.
“You think if you just stay there and look at me with that sick look of yours I’m gonna pity you and spare your life? Just what kind of idiot do you take ME for? I don’t care if you die, I don’t feel anything for you” he was really mad.
“Die” he said in a deep voice
Vines crushed your body.
But in no time, you were back again, and you stood there, again, s

You woke up on your bed, it was morning again. You checked the date... It was still the same day.
No doubt about it, he killed you.
You had so many things going on your head right now, one of them was relief you had saved this morning, saving was now an habit of yours every time you went to bed and every time you woke up, you remember commenting this to Flowey... Maybe it was a bad idea to let him know you could still do this.
In any case, you knew something like this was bound to happen sometime, you were not too surprised or shocked, you died much enough in the past to be afraid of it anymore, what a messed up kid you were.
You felt a bit betrayed and confused too, what did he mean? Did he mean to say he got so sick of your insistence he decided a "game" could settle this? Or was he going to try and test your patience? Either way, you knew this was a challenge and not just a get-lost-forever warning, gosh you were so stubborn.
You sat on up your bed
