*rant* Religion, Abuse and HypocrisyWarning, rant ahead.Blanket Disclaimer: I am ranting about religion and primarily Christianity. That does NOT mean I think ALL religious people are like this -- simply that the majority of ones I have met are. I know there are good Christians just like there are good people who are not religious. I really don't get it. SO MANY PEOPLE I KNOW claim to be Christians...and not just that, but GOOD Christians. They quote the Bible at a drop of a hat, go to all the Bible studies/prayer groups, talk about how God does this and God does that for them, and everything they say has a spiritual/religious tint.But they ACT HORRIBLE.They are some of the nastiest, most vindictive and downright mean group of people I have ever met.Let me put it this way: I have been verbally, physically and emotionally attacked by numerous "devout" Christians, have been severely bullied (to the point where I was suicidal at 10), and ev

Why do certain people feel......entitled to get my art for free? And no, I'm not talking about any of my watchers, or anyone here on dA.I'm talking about my mother, and certain other family members.It's gotten to the point where I can't even talk about working on commissions because my mom gets mad and yells at me because, "why am I always drawing things for other people (for money)? I should draw stuff for her for free!"Um, yeah mom the reason I never draw stuff for you is because YOU NEVER LIKE IT. You complain about my style, coloring, everything. I even tried drawing in a style to please you, but unless it looks like something Michelangelo would do, YOU SAY IT LOOKS BAD.I can't win. And I don't want to spend all my art time drawing stuff for family members for free! At least the people who commission me are grateful when they receive their art. >.>But other family members are this way too. Like my grandma, who is always demanding (not asking, TELLING) me that I have to draw these characters she comes up w

July Giveaway [CLOSED]June, what a month. It was a slow month, but it did bring about odd revelations about my health. After a routine blood test I was told I have a fatty liver and some sort of autoimmune disorder. That might explain why I'm tired all the time! I'm just afraid I have Lupus... That wouldn't be good. So, it's time to focus on my health! I've started a diet and I intend to lose 90lbs and get down to 180lbs. If I can meet this goal I want to look into modeling.
