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
-Let It Go?-Let it go, you say? I don't know how. I don't know how to break that bough. To break that bough, or keep it straight, these things make me never wait.-Let It Go?- by CelestinaGrey
Let it go, you say? But that's not true. That's just not true to be able to do. To release the shame, the guilt, the fears, it can't be done, I've tried for years.
Let it go, you say? It's just too late. It's far too late to close that gate. To close it shut and keep it out, its far too late to scream and shout.
Let it go, you say? I guess I'll try. I guess one last chance won't make me cry. To push and shove and finally break free, well that would mean the world to me.
Let it go, you say? I finally did. I finally managed to close that lid. I'll burn the box and shut it tight, and finally bask in the light.
Creator and creationA creator and its creationCreator and creation by Libertades
I wondered one morning about the meaning of a creation, I tried to feel like God. As a matter of fact this is what I love about being an artist; creating. Why hadn't I thought about it? I create, and how does it feel to create life? Even if it's not physically possible.
I realized I had original creatures, life forms that I had created in a world far away from my own, but they are very real to me, my dragons, my magical beings, my hybrids, their characters… the life I gave them, the suffering I made them go through, the deaths they went through, the world I put them in... I realized we really are the image of a creator, and we can understand it!
Some people wonder with anguish and anger; why is God allowing us to suffer in such land? If He was good...
If He was good.
But I came to the conclusion God doesn't have to be "good", at least not within our earthly definition of "good"; If God is really a creator beyond everything and the universe itself, life&
