aly ...That is the best advice I have ever heard! Though, I don't believe in the "opposites attract" (personality) of marriage... So, I guess I'll be locking up my cereal in the pantry xD

If there’s one piece of advice I can give you it’s to marry someone who has a different favorite cereal than you so they wont eat all of yours.

A little bit about me...

My name is Sakura. (My real name shall not be given, not because I'm paranoid, but because It's one of the worst names ever =3= ). I believe that art comes in many forms. It doesn't necessarily have to be paintings, drawings, and sculptures. Art is anything that can be created when expressed with passion and emotion. Poetry, writing, designing, crafts, dancing, singing, song-writing, film making, and my favorite: acting! ^W^

I don't believe in natural born talents, because I don't think there's such a thing. "Talent" is just a term for a highly advanced skill that comes from hard work, dedication, and, of course, practice practice practice!

I'm a self taught artist, and open to new things. Now, I’ve taken the required art classes in Elementary/Grammar school according to the schedule of the school (like every regular school). However… everything else is more self-taught and learning techniques by either looking up tutorials or the “What does this button do?” method.

I don’t have my own style actually (especially not in drawing |D). However, I do like to do things and create things that few or no people have ever thought of before. I tend to stay away from hypes and bandwagons (i.e. drawing certain things “just because someone else is drawing them"). I feel like getting sucked into drawing things “because they’re drawing it” defeats the purpose of originality and creativity. In all honesty, it feels like a lazy excuse. I often times like to “take the road less traveled”.

Even if a meme or bandwagon gets so much hype and becomes popular for a prolonged amount of time, I still won't do it until the hype simmers down. Even if I see how fun it looks to do----and I really want to do it---and if I have uncontrollable urges to do it.... I still won't do it. Nope. If I did, I'd be more of a hypocrite than I already am.

Now, I admit, sometimes, I’d like to “Draw things that someone else is drawing”. But, instead of blatantly copy it like everyone else would„ I’d study it for a moment and ask myself “Okay, how can I make this somewhat similar to the original concept but make it different at the same time?” With that, I tend to add my own twist or my own take on things.

Anywho. Don't hesitate to drop a "Hi~" or some random message in my comments box (except for chain comments, I don't do those, sorry ^^; ).

Leaving DA...

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 1, 2015, 2:12 PM


It's just becoming too much to handle. Really, the drama (mostly from what I've caused), and the people I have hurt and bullied... it's just dawned on me that.... I really can't do this anymore.

My epiphany has dawned on me.

I don't belong here any more.

I know you would throw your fiestas once you found out that I was gone forever form this site (that, or if I died. Then you'd REALLY throw your fiestas all night and every day).

But, unfortunately, I'll just be leaving.

It's be an amazing, you guys. Really.

Looking back, there was a lot of improvement, mostly because I spend these past 4-5 years just forcing myself to draw until I got better; wanting to prove myself to people that i admired that I can be good enough for them. Of course, it came with the stress and short temper and irritability, and other things that made me into the toxic, drama inducing monster I became---driving all of my former friends away.

So... I just figured that it was time to let go. Release myself from this stress and stop being a slave to the drawings.

I'm going to become my own person.

I'm not going to wreak havoc and drama on anyone anymore

It's been a fun ride.

Goodbye everyone~!
