My roommate hates when I draw (probably cause I slam Ctrl+Z all day long) but she's gotten to such a passive aggressive point that if she wants me to stop she'll pretend to go to sleep. Then, *casually* 15 minutes after I stop she'll always wake up. What an asshole.

Like excuse me for doing something productive with my time, ugh. This is how I make money, kid

Dude from what I've seen it sounds like your roommate sucks. Is there any possibility of a transfer?


I'm having trouble drawing correctish anatomy again. It's been so long since I actually tried to make things look halfway realistic, and now I'm being a total perfectionist about it.

Oh yeah she's horrible. Omg. And nah, we're too late into the semester to do anything about it, but I live alone next year (and for the rest of college, for that matter) anyway, so I just have to wait it out. She's frequently out though, so I don't have to deal with her 24/7 at least.

Sometimes I wish to stop drawing completely, cause my style is shit-Can't decide if I should continue doing digital or start traditional

But I can't go through hiatus now, drawing is the only hobby I got ATM plus if I stop my quality will go down and I'll need to work it back up

I've fallen out of love with this mouse fursuit concept, I have no character set up and can't even decide on markings for her. I love how the head shape is coming along but I'm seriously think of finishing up the foamwork and selling it I could use the money too but another problem I have though is I come from a pet AND smoke friendly home. I don't think anybody would be interested in buying due to coming from a smoking home, I don't smoke but it don't mean it won't smell like it :/

I don't understand why people tell me they're interested in buying an adopt and then back out when I give them my PayPal because "they didn't know it cost money". The price is listed in all my chats :/

I wish I had designer friends I could discuss design type stuff with, idk I just think it be fun to exchange ideas for adopts or personal characters or even collab on designing each others species or something X3
I'm too shy too talk to other people, especially designers I look up to :'D
Kinda sorta an artist rant :P
Should I make a designer discussion thread...hmmm

tbh it really sucked when I was alone on Deviantart, posting artwork hardly anyone cared about and I didn't feel too great about. I felt very outside the fandom too because I would just watch so many artists who inspired me but it seemed like no one cared about my existance within the fandom.

Sure some might say I was wanting attention, and that's true. I wanted friends. now I do have freinds.

I really like sewing and it's not too hard to get fairly good at it

But it feels like it takes forever to get fast at it

I'd do it way more if I weren't still so darned slow

I've been having major art block for a while and it's really frustrating to hate everything I've been trying to draw.

I'm finding it harder and harder to find motivation.
I also wish I could find a platform to sell my adopts that's less toxic than Amino but I've tried most of the furry/social media sites and they get ignored on pretty much all of them
