half mermaid by ChocolaPeanut

Currently attempting to cure an artblock. 

I kinda like how this drawing turned out, though I wish I could improve my coloring/shading technique.

So I was looking to upgrade my account, and how come everything has become way more complicated, not to mention, more expansive?

It's been a while since dA has changed former Premium membership into Core now, but I've never thought they'd go so far as to double the price. WTF?! 

Before, it was possible to buy a PM for three month (696 Points) or 12 months (1200Points )
Now I see 1,200 Points for the 3 months option and... 4,000 Points (so, 50$) for the 12months offer?

...Seriously, dA?


Bullet; Blue Edit: Found these journals! Read it, it's very interesting. Apparently, dA going broke may be more a rumor than the actual truth.

SPREAD: no, DEVIANTART WON'T shut down- here's whyEDIT Aug 6th: THE RUMOR WAS OFFICIALLY DEBUNKED! THE SITE IS NOT SHUTTING DOWN!
Also, I just heard DA may not be in any kind of financial trouble to begin with. I made this in the assumption that deviantArt was trying to cover up for potential losses but that might not even be the case according to new information.


Lately there has been a lot of uproar on the risk of losing deviantArt entirely if you sign the petition against CORE.
A lot of misinformation has been spread and I need to assert them.
First off, you do not need to worry! Website-based businesses such as deviantArt do not work that way, they do not go bankrupt anywhere near as easily as other forms of business. Also, we do not aim for this. The only reason why we wish for the Core boycott is to make Deviantart listen to us. It has failed to do that for years, and we have finally had enough.
Second, we need to clear up a few things. We do not want to remove what CO
    Hoax debunked!I would like to thank :iconspittinginsanity: for finding this comment!
She found a comment concerning the "Shut down" of DeviantArt that started up by Pro-Core members who blamed Anti-Core members and the petition that it'll get the site shut down.
This is proof that this site WILL NOT shut down.
Now the other excuse is that "Da is going broke though!" Well thanks to a certain somebody who posted a web link
http://www.worthofweb.com/website-value/www.deviantart.com/
DA makes 250,798$ per day
7,523,940$ per month
and 90,287,280$ per year.
and also gets 16,720,000 visits pageviews per day.
So no DA is not going broke,the staff must be.
Now I'd appreciate it if you guys shared this because a lot of pro-core members have been harassing us anti-core members for supporting the petition and removal of core and blaming us for a possible shut down which was a hoax. :)
Read the last journal as well concerning the future of core:
   Core, A.K.A. dA's biggest fuckup yet.
So, I think everyone knows about the thing by now. It exploded so enourmously fast, when suddenly people refreshed their notifications pages and got lazored in the eyes by those vivid, fugly orange (stolen: http://sta.sh/0lcbhvlf4vi) symbols by their friends' usernames who had Premium. An hour later, someone discovered that the prices were almost doubled and by then, the flaming shitstorm was impossible to stop. 
So what has Core done??
RAISED THE PRICE OF: 3 MONTHS MEMBERSHIP FROM $8 TO $15 (+87,5%)
                                       12 MONTHS MEMBERSHIP FROM $30 TO $50 (+66%), while simultaneously
REMOVED "1 MONTH" AND "TIL' ALL HELL FREEZES OVER (7 YEARS)" OPTIONS
REPLACED OUR BELOVED DARK-GREEN PREMIUM STAR WITH AN ORANGE DRAGONBALL RIPOFF THAT OFTEN GLITCHES OUT (http://sta.sh/21p8karkp
Ugh, it seems like I'm kind of stuck on an artblock.

That's not because I'm short of ideas for drawing, per se. That's because I don't know how I will draw them. It's all about technique, and that's the most horrible form of artblock. It's one of those times when I feel I draw with my left hand. So awkward... :shifty: 

Looks like I need to watch some more speedpaint videos, but I'm not even sure it will work.

Any idea how to solve that? What do you people do to overcome that block?

You have a gorgeous gallery! I don't know why you'd want to know how MHNB does her art when yours is better, but I do know how she does it if you want me to tell you. It's pretty much the exact thing I do.
