On about being perfectI was inspired by KizuNova to write this journal actually haha
I am a huge perfectionist. It might not be super apparent for all of the blebs I do, but I do a lot of bleb pictures because they allow me to be less perfect. If there's no rules to follow to begin with, how can I break them, right! And while this affects my whole life and caused me insane amount of anxiety due to me being anything but perfect and failing constantly on simple matters, I'm gonna focus more on how this has affected my art through the years. Maybe this'll help someone else struggling with the same problems!
When it comes to art, I wasn't always perfectionist. Far from it actually, I used to scoff at people trying to be perfect and reach impossible standards, and I would preach about how art was supposed to be something you create out of enjoyment, "create what makes you happy" sort of person. I feel that this is very apparent on my earlier artworks - while yes, anatomically very wonky, bgs being occasional sh
Adulting 101-Closed Species / Communities(Consumer POV)
I have no intention of fanning any flames.
There will be no names, no call-outs, no fingers pointed.

My income is tight what with my most recent move, but there are occasions where I have a small budget to purchase ad
[Tutorial] How to create/improve your speciesHow to create or improve your species – An Unconventional Tutorial
Disclaimer: If you are a seasoned species owner, some sections of this tutorial may be ‘blatantly obvious’ to you. However, to make sure that new species owners understand these principles they have been included in this tutorial.
I'm not going to outline 'How to pick a unique species name' or 'How to modify a real animal into a species', or other topics that most popular species creation tutorials cover. Those very tutorials were the ones I read when I first started creating species. However with some insight and a lot more experience, I realised they no longer explained the best way to create, or define a closed species. I could even argue that their existence helped to create some of the issues that closed species communities face now, such as an extreme focus on traits and selling value as opposed to lore and species interactivity.
In today's species community and ma
