I never really had a proper full blown review or critique on my first creepypasta character but I think it should be time I get some form of critique. I know some people have given tips and stuff mostly on drawings and little story bits but I would like some more in depth opinions on what I have, what I'm doing right or wrong, you know the drill.

I'm open to changing a little few things that will help my character Silent Siren/Catherine grow. It's ok if I receive flack or stuff, I know not everyone is going to sugar coat their responses.

So...if anyone wants to have a go at it, here's some links for all the current info and backstory I have so far. Half of her backstory is done, not all of it but you'll see the rest of her info in the other links. Hope this is good enough.

Is anyone else having a problem with group submissions? I keep trying to post SU artwork but it keeps submitting a completely different fandom piece to the selected folders and groups I'm picking. I am hoping this is just an issue on mobile.
Random post here, am I the only one who sees Lapis and Peridot as sisters? Like the ship art is cute and all though I feel less chemistry with the ones with more romantic elements. I kinda feel like they're more of a family bond rather than romantic when I see more lighter toned pictures of them together but that's just how I see it, this isn't to bash Lapidot shippers, they're cool. It's just how I see it. Lol
*Finds a new Steven Universe OTP*

I wonder if this actually exists...*goes to Google*

*Immediately has many results of that very ship I hopped onto*

I was not disappointed. Lol
*Random OC/PSA I guess status*

Been developing my Catherine/Silent Siren character for so long now, I'd say about three years and I gotta say, I'm pretty proud of my work even if she doesn't have finished stories. Even incomplete works, her character throughout role plays and art depictions have developed her fully as she is now pretty much at the peak of her character.

A theme I've been subconsciously noticing throughout the darker stories I've been writing, courtesy of other rp partners is a theme of relationship abuse and how it can affect a person's mental/emotional well being. This also carries on to mold SS/Cathy to becoming a stronger woman character throughout the plots and how she builds more courage and strength to stand up for herself even in the face of danger whether it's physical fighting or someone trying to manipulate their way to the character's mind.

The way I make these work is through personal experiences of a previous relationship, I guess that's why I put in a lot of emotion in these short stories or current roleplays when it comes to romantic affiliation and subplots. And now as I see it, I do hope that maybe it can be relatable to other people who undergo or have undergone similar situations whether the relationship is between friends, bf/gf, ex, family, coworker, etc. So people can see that there's always some glimmer of hope within those dark moments when a character finally manages to fight through the struggles. There's hope both in the fictional world and your reality.

Abuse of any type is a hard thing to cope with, so I suppose that personal experiences put within my character helped her to grow into who she is now today. From an insecure, easily provoked and uncertain individual to a person who has developed enough bravery to stand up to her aggressors and fight through fear when confronted to let them know she will not take any bullshit.

Just so you know, all challenges faced are never easy victories and progress can be quite slow and minimal. But know this, you're always going to have supporters of some kind nearby even if you don't believe it. It gets better and when you reach the top, you will be victorious. All of us cope with struggles in a different way, art being one of those major ways. If helps you, do so and don't stop trying, letting emotions out this way is a breath of fresh air and definitely helps with venting out the negativity. Keep at it and you'll feel a lot better. Sorry for rambling but if this helped in any way, well, congrats and I wish you all the best when working on your own products. Have a good weekend, everyone.
Happy Halloween everyone! I know time zones are different but over here is about early so hope you're all having a fun holiday. ^^ :iconbakaandtensaiart: :icontipsyai: :iconvampshinobi: :iconamiecris: :iconrokatsu: :iconivydarkrose: and everyone else, I hope you had or are having a lovely evening or day, even if there are others that don't celebrate it, I still wish you a wonderful time and many more to come. ^^
Is it a bit bad to be an introvert most of the time? Currently everyone's having fun in their party outside and I had about my share of fun but I'm pretty burnt out now. Family suggests I should dance and socialize though I felt pretty comfortable just talking to my cousin and geeking out over pop culture stuff, I felt pretty satisfied enough. I'm in between not being a party person but I also don't mind some of the festive and social activities when they arrive. I know I gotta speak more but I show about a fraction or more of talking and participation in activities and loud parties for a bit, that counts for something, right? Lol *speaking out thoughts while burnt out tired*
Am I the only one that doesn't like the style of modern anime? I mean I know people have preferences but I just really can't find myself enjoying the new styles of all the kawaii, moe animu girl stuff. Besides anime cliches, I'm talking more about the art style, it's all the same, generic cutesy 10 year old girl looking stuff where the eyes are about as big as dinner plates. o_o I know this sounds all petty and it's nothing new but I just find it strange looking and more common now. And also, what happened to their noses? It's like in each generation of the art style, their noses seem to disappear. Eh, preferences I guess. Just rambling thoughts here.
Sorry for not being active at all...been sick and having breathing issues so I really didn't feel like coming onto the site for a while. So many WIPs still unfinished but I don't feel forced or anything, I'm just taking far longer than I expected. I don't feel like doing much of anything nowadays but I'm slowly getting around with sketches and now only finally shading the final works. Hope others are going by smoothly. I know others are having a lot of trouble but if you're reading this, know that I'm aware, good luck, even if my words don't help much. Seeya.
How to make a proper X Reader.

Step 1: CONSENT, CONSENT, CONSENT, CONSENT
Step 2: That's pretty much it.

On a serious note, I'm so sick and tired that whenever I upload literature, there's always crappy X readers in the related section. My issue is not shipping, it's the fact on how so many of these writers seem to glorify and romanticize abuse to all levels of fucked up. My bestie has told me about his experiences reading these, to which most are vomit inducing. What the hell is wrong with these people? Like, in the first paragraph or two, it feels more like a psychological horror than a romance. Sorry if I sound harsh but if you know me well enough based on these journals and statuses, you know how I feel about people glorifying abuse. It's bad enough we have Offenderman, we don't need a whole cesspool of fear inducing fanfics. Yes I know these have existed for years but I guess I'm just finally coming out and saying what I feel. Just, why? Why do people write these things? I swear they don't seem to grasp the concept of proper love. Sorry this is mostly frustration talking, but yeah, I'm just tired of it all, y'know?
Might be a silly or already discussed topic regarding to vent stuff in the pasta fandom though this is mostly geared towards creepypasta/slenderverse issues. It's just a personal issue that I need to get off my chest or else I'll go fucking nuts.

I normally have a very thick skin and can usually rp almost anything in the fandom: horror, slice of life, romance, adventure, comedy, all that good stuff. I can handle rp partners picking MarySuey/GaryStuey characters and other characters I don't really like much without issue.

The one thing I just cannot stand in rp is mostly a certain character being in most pasta rps, you probably know who it is by now if you know me enough or if I've mentioned them before in another status.

Yeah this refers to the offenderman character again but more in depth with the feelings I need to vent off. I know some rp friends bring him into a plot, whether serious or light hearted but every time they bring him into the story, I literally feel sick.

It's one thing to be creeped out by a character and spooked for our entertainment but to feel like your head hurts, stomach feeling like it's punched, heart rate goes faster and overall not feeling pleasant whenever the character is introduced just makes me feel drained.

Every time he's in, I feel drained, weak and uneasy. It's gotten to the point where few times I've cried but I never told my rp partners about this. Reason I don't say I guess is because I don't want to come off as controlling, naggy or a crybaby.

I know that if I ask for the character to not be in it, or just change a certain thing in the plot, they might say yes if I explain politely. It's just the fear of their reactions I guess.

I've taken breaks from other rps for a while now but I might just go back to the ones where the certain character is not in. I'm sorry if this is repetitive or a dumb thing to complain about but I just really needed to say something because it's fucked with my moods and health for a while.
I have to ask...yes this refers to the pasta fandom again but I really want to know, how did people portray a human version of Ben Drowned as a perverted pothead?

No, no, no, the better question is WHY was that portrayal chosen in the fanon version? I already know how it came to be, I think it was from some famous comic called AWJTK, (Adventures with Jeff the Killer) I could be wrong but that's where I believe it all started but correct me if I'm wrong.

But why? Why that kind of personality? I can't imagine seeing this character, fanon or not, as...that. I don't know what his specific age is because people have flip flopped all over it but he's usually portrayed as a child or preteen no? Makes it seem pretty creepy to play him out like such.

And yes, I have a written series where a version of Ben is physically a preteen but not a pervert or drug addict, more like a little bit of a smartass, wisecracking kid but with a more mellowed out and loner kind of exterior. I would assume in some AU, he'd still have a preteen appearance but also the mind of a maturing young adult. I'm not trying to rag on other peoples' headcanons, most of us have our own but questions are always going to be raised when it comes to certain questionable portrayals.
Warning: vent and slightly biased opinion here that would piss off fans I guess.

Being in the pasta Fandom for a long time now, I don't really hate many characters, in fact I can tolerate poorly written ones. One character I just do not want to acknowledge at all is this Offenderman character. I don't know why he was created, I have nothing against the creator but I just, can't seem to wrap my head around on why people like this character at all. Seeing that he has fans, fanclubs and people supporting him just disgusts me a lot, what is there to like about the character? Maybe I'm missing something, but whether he has a compelling origin story/personality or not, it doesn't change the fact he's a rapist, I mean, the name is a dead giveaway first of all. And I say I am biased because I like other characters in the horror or pasta fandom that kill. I do not like the fact that they kill, I like the personalities that they have or have been given in headcannon/AUs that can make for compelling stories. Yes I understand I am a hypocrite, that's why I have held back on this opinion for so long. Yes it's great to make a character that instills fear in people in the fandom, but the fear I feel isn't exactly pleasant. I don't like feeling the notion of seeing a character/person that makes me feel physically sick every time I see it, I don't actively look for fanart of this character anyway, it just appears in groups and in search engines when im just looking for art and stories of other characters. I'm biased speaking from personal experience that I will not get into. Am I wrong for feeling this way? There is no easy way to say this. I don't want to insult anyone, I'm just tired of bottling these feelings up, I just see nothing charming or "sexy" about this character.
I love being in the creepypasta fandom still despite all the drama fans can stir up. I just like having fun with my pasta characters but I think for once I can actually make a really dark character. I have a feeling my Guilt Tripper character will succeed in being infamous and be successful in her goal to be one of the most cruelest and cunning characters yet, at least from what I make. I just gotta write her story and draw her more first. Lol
//last vent about current situation//
Wow so apparently me roleplaying a very cruel, sadistic and sociopathic Jeff the Killer pissed off another roleplayer because I wouldn't play him saving her character from constantly putting herself in situations where she only constantly cries, complains and tries to pull the self harm/suicide card on her oc. You know I like soft hearted rps as much as the next person but when your character is just there for self gratification, very unenjoyable character play and then you get pissy at me for not fulfilling your fantasies, don't expect me to rp with you again. This is why it's important to separate your emotions from yourself and your muse.
//warning, kind of an angry vent//

I love to roleplay and look into characters but I cannot stand seeing someone using the self harm trope to try and get other roleplayers' attention and sympathy. It's disgusting and very low, not to mention pretty offensive to those that actually do self harm in real life but not for attention. Not everything in an rp has to revolve around constant misery with the character being "woe is me, pay attention to me or I'll cut." It's disgusting, really.
Honestly, the creepypasta fandom gives me mixed feelings too often. One side, you have fans making bad characters and stories but those can be fixed through critique and reviewing. But what's with other people feeling so entitled to put down and rave about characters about miniscule details that aren't even the main focus of an issue? I've never seen other fandoms do this. It makes other reviewers look bad. Yeah this is referring mostly to the Judge Angels journal someone posted in other pasta groups. If you're going to review something, don't nitpick at every little detail. Yes there are problems with other characters and all but research and a more open mind are always more favorable over a bitter attitude and nitpicking the not so important details.
Finally made it to 160 watchers, 40 watchers away from 200. Lol woohoo.

I have to say, I'm kinda surprised I made it this far on DA in less than two years. I know it's not a high number like others but I still thank everyone for the support and kind words here. There's still a lot I owe and want to make but now that Spring is in full swing, I can say that there will be more to come. Thanks for sticking by and I hope to interact with you guys as much as I can
Well there goes my self-esteem, slowly walking out the door. Bahaha...

What do I mean by this? Well recently I've been doing well with some feedback and praise on drawings I make, mostly fanon creepypasta art in groups I join on FB. Things have been going well until yesterday the admin in one major group made fandom/cute pasta artwork legible for automatic ban. Now I could join other groups but they're either not as active or have a similar attitude towards fandom art. Yes I can practice drawing more creepy shit but I don't feel that motivated to. So maybe I feel a little crappy because I don't contribute to "true" creepypasta but oh well. I draw what I feel is fine and people had enjoyed it. It's just that people can be so arrogant and uptight about what qualifies as real art apparently. Like, it could have been a lot worse, at least I'm not tracing, recoloring or drawing porn art of it. Am I wrong for feeling this way? Because it kinda left a tiny, Itty bitty dent on my confidence because I'm not a "true" pasta fan for drawing cute/anime pasta art. I'll continue drawing and writing what I love, I know I've talked about this before but lately with this incident, it's cut off the feedback I love and stifled some confidence. Eh, I'll get over it, just needed to vent. Lol
Why is it that in media, every male and female friendship has to end up in a relationship? Not saying it happens all the time but for the most part, it's almost a majority thing. Not every guy and girl friendship has to end up with the two dating each other. Some people are fine staying friends and it works better that way. Characters can have different bonds too that are purely platonic. I guess I'm rambling on about it because it gets very predictable and repetitive.
Sometimes I wonder what's people's beef with ocs. This is mostly geared towards the Undertale fanbase. Now, I'm not talking about the immature or...creepy side of the fanbase, I'm talking about people just making genuinely cute and basic ocs to build up stories and rps surrounding the game. I've seen some elitist fans or "critics" saying that if your character is friends or interacts with the canon characters, you should scrap it or it'll automatically be a sue/stu. Um, how so? I mean more power to you if you can make a very good stand alone story around your Undertale oc, but I see no harm having the characters interact and be friends with a few of the official characters. Now this doesn't mean it's perfect, no. There's always room for improvement and critique. But I'm talking about people putting others down just simply for having their UT ocs have SOME interaction with a MINIMUM of characters. I'm just rambling on but that's been something that's bothered me for a while, because well, in the end we make these characters for fun and sometimes some good rps and stories can come from it.

I am a young adult woman who is trying my best to blossom into creativity again. I have found new material to grab inspiration from and convert it into my own art style. I wish to draw and submit as much art as I can so I may be able to not only gain some recognition for talent, but to be an inspiration and role model to other artists on here as well. Let's have some fun and positivity.

For anyone visiting my profile, please do not advertise or thank me for faves/llamas/watches/ etc.

Reposting the comment I made on several of the favorites folders:

Just a clarification, please to all that I comment on, watch, fave things, etc, please do not thank me for the faves/watches/etc.

I'm not saying this to be rude but I cannot reply to any comment that I've responded to in the same way.

I appreciate all the art that is made and I will gladly give feedback on your piece if I do get around to it. Again, this is just a preference I have on my profile, I don't wish to come off as cold and rude.

I've been doing ok, a bit rocky when it comes to dealing with emotions but I'm taking it out on art for now so it helps.

I understand things might be getting harder so I didn't wanna pester the chat about it but hoping you're sleeping ok at least, I hope.
