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
Things You'd Rather UnseeTHINGS YOU’D RATHER UNSEEThings You'd Rather Unsee by Koahara
“You should not go near that house,” the elders warned. “You were brought up better than that,” the elders scoffed. Even with their endless warnings, and many attempts to shame us, we did more than just fail to heed their words.
We tormented that house. We had no regard for its well-being, and we cared not for whoever its owner might be, or might have been. A rock here, and a bottle there, we threw everything we could possibly get our grimy hands on. The windows were easy; they quickly fell victim to our vandalism, even at our puny age. The rotten, wooden shutters stood little chance, courtesy of time and nature. But as we chipped away at the wood, we found that the shutters only unveiled a stronger, darker oak, barring curious eyes from the inside. We thought it might be best to leave that wood to the weather, too, and then take it on in a few month
The Adventures of HoneyBatty Chapter 1The Adventures of HoneyBattyThe Adventures of HoneyBatty Chapter 1 by HoneyBatty16
Ch. 1: Beginning
The story began at a Colosseum at the Enchanted Forest where shows HoneyBatty the Batgirl and Noah the Angel having a battle.
HoneyBatty: Don't think you can beat so easily, Noah!
Noah: Same here, Creature of Darkness!
Swords clashing as the crowd are enjoying the show especially their friends and the king.
King Lionel: (Thinking) They're getting more powerful than ever but their biggest challenge has yet to come.
HoneyBatty: (Battle scream)
HoneyBatty did a charge attack but Noah blocked her attack with his sword. He did a powerful kick to her abdomen sending her flying.
She fell to the ground as she dropped her sword.She was on her knee trying to get up as Noah is walking towards her.
HoneyBatty: (groan) (coughing)
Noah: Surrender now, Creature of Darkness. You don't stand up against the Angel of Light.
Thinking that she was feeling week, Noah is standing in front of her closely.
Noah: Looks like I win.
The Winter's WatcherTHE WINTER'S WATCHERThe Winter's Watcher by Koahara
Why is it, O wolf of winter,
That you cry so eager tonight?
Do you hide, my blackest sinner,
From the crimes you have done outright?
Blood mars your fur and once white teeth;
Hope not for some mercy, but rain.
Deserve you not even to breathe
Tiny whispers; you must abstain!
Now he comes; the winter’s watcher
Shan’t be fooled by wolfish nature.
He knows you made deathly offers
To the younger bucks, I wager.
Run! He seeks your glassy eyes now;
Above, he waits for your demise!
Wolf, will you make so fatal a vow
To halt, beneath starry white skies?
Too late! You have pondered too long!
Collapse, great beast; your end is nigh.
Fear not; your death shan’t be prolonged.
Such sweet rest you’ll never defy.
Darkest raven, done is your deed.
Rest now, dear death’s tired lover;
Awake at dawn, such is your creed.
You must find flesh of another.
To be Open MindedWhat is exactly opening your mind to new thoughts? Some say certain people are very open while others are closed, some believe a person's thoughts will change or not depending on how they live, what they choose and their beliefs (be it religious or not).To be Open Minded by Libertades
But is this true? Can someone be closed minded by just believing certain things? Or could people who believed earth was plain still have wide open thoughts? Let's analyze this, consider all of this my thoughts on this subject.
As a God-devoted person, I've been through so much debate and witnessed many clashed between believers and non-believers, sometimes there were great questions to be asked, other times... Just a bunch of radical idiots that would death-threat each other, but in every single case there was this problem that bothered me: why do non-believers and atheist in general call believers "closed minded people"?
It was not too hard to figure, through the passage of time I did understand that many radical Christians would mess
