too much about death,

How to be a better artist!Hi, I'm just another artist who started at zero like all of you. These are just the things I wish I knew before. Feel free to share this journal around if you think that someone needs help on this subject. This journal is dedicated to new artists or just aspiring artists that are not feeling motivated. Or probably any other artists that wants to improve, really.
We've all been there. Have you ever had these thoughts on the back of your mind?
"I'm not popular. My art is not popular."
"I'm not improving."
"My work is still shit compared to ___"
"I want to draw but I don't have time."
"I suck at drawing ___"
"I have an artblock."
"I want to improve, like, really fast."
"I can't fully draw what I already pictured in my head"
"I don't have my own style"
1) If they tell you that you can't draw, work twice as hard and pr

The problematic behavior of online artists.There is a bunch of things online artist do terribly wrong on a regular basis. Some of it might be directly aimed to you and some might be things you from others.
Way too little time spend on painting/practice.
People making nit pick pointers.
The extreme fuzz about labels and methods.
Witch-hunting/ talking smack.
However I'd like to start with a totally opposite note:
This year I've also experienced great support from the art community for which I'm dearly grateful for.
:icontituslunter: got me an amazing birthday gift(video), made by him and fellow awesome artists:
And the support I've had this past week with the event of my sisters death has been incredibly helpful. (Thank you for all the donations, there are no more worries about money anymore thanks to you awesome people!)

Water Dog CONTESTFirst of all- welcome everyone to the contest! We’re holding this contest to celebrate the 100 watchers (well, 102 as of now!), however it is only open to all group members (if you're not a member feel free to join now)!
The subject of this contest is the reason we’re all here- our mutual love of water dogs! You can draw anyone’s water dog, but not your own! You can draw one, or two together, or whatever you’d like! Just try to be creative- because the winner will be judged based on the creativity of the entry (and the apparent effort put into the piece)!
Please submit your entries to this folder, not to the "Drawings" folder. Also, this contest is neither alfeddy or my contest, it's the contest for the whole group, so please instead tag the group, and not us!
NOTE! If you see a waterdog being drawn more than others, drawing it as well will not increase your cha
david and goliath.He passes under
the dying streetlamps'
darkening splashes on his face,
against the rooftops.
The tarmac, painted with his footsteps,
white lines of vertebrae
tickle along its back.
Lovely glass, shattered fragments
ruffle the curb of the pavement,
strands of rainwater
whisper along the gutter
in hymnal honesty; and sunlight seems swallowed
by the swollen beast of night.
prickle at the back of his memory,
a nervous pattern of speech,
syllables of iambic chattering
teeth against the cold:
the hotel window, shining with
the gaze of a thousand tourists' wonderment,
is where his own eyes rest,
as if the world is born anew
and love-songs spike the evening air
his life-tousled hair. He
walks on, passes on,
a stranger in a foreign land;
the moonlight seems
to turn about him, embrace his form,
a lonely touch, not quite animate in its caress,
but his love was the colour
of seawater on gravel,
and he would not take the taste of her brea
