Maybe doing some art trades or requests would help? I would definitely be selective about the former, but if your character looks nice or interesting, then why the hell not? Hit me up.

It's partly inspired by CanisAlbus on deviantArt, except I can't do patterns (I have to stick on washi tape) and my dogs have far worse anatomy 😝

But I'll give credit where credit is due.

Making software that people HAVE to use proprietary is double, triple malicious.

So I'm taking a course to get a driver's license and all the mock tests are contained within a Windows-only proprietary program. In order to even pass the exam you have to do mock tests.

How fucking wonderful. Simply amazing. Inventor of this crap: I hope your mother is proud of you.

What's even worse, I have no reliable way of searching for references.

❌ The default interface of DuckDuckGo which contains the image search uses nonfree JavaScript.

❌ Most websites use JS to display images.

❌ I cannot browse deviantArt for the lack of a free frontend (I mean, really, dA could use that sort of thing...)

❌ Bibliogram does not enable you to browse hashtags.

I'll try with different potential sources of references and notify anyone interested of what I found.

I want to draw something with a background or otherwise complex, but I do not feel comfortable enough to do that. The last artblock I had affected me greatly and left me only being able to draw characters on flat backgrounds. I don't even have _ideas_ proper. I'm really frustrated with those limitations.

I bought a bunch of washi tape and tested it on a drawing that needed a patterned background. Making it look like one solid piece and cutting it properly was pretty damn hard.

If you basically generate callouts as a hobby and what close friends you have bond with you mainly via circlejerking over things/people you hate, I guarantee you your group will eventually devour itself as you begin to inevitably have disagreements and start attacking each other

Caps 

And ESPECIALLY Septembers. I have so many bad associations with Septembers at this point in my life.

Actually, I hate most of the year, except maybe deep Winter and early Spring. But Fall is the fucking worst.

I think I'll stop reposting people. Nothing personal, I'm just used to having 100% of my content on my social media profiles.

Hyperverbal autism is using an archaism from the Medieval Ages and a teenager slang word in one sentence.

Or throwing a big monologue in academic-esque language and accidentally saying "damn" or "bullshit", because you never had to _learn_ that type of language in the first place and it's natural for you.

So I've been trying to translate some of my poems into English, so that I could post them, but it's soooo hard!

It's much easier for me to translate poetry from English to Polish than vice versa. Probably because Polish is very flexible, so you'll always find a rhyme (conjugations add to the variety), while with Polish to English it's like trying to cram a square block into a circular hole. Ya can't. Unless you're willing to cut something off.
