    I never got to see people with my name very often and when I watched TV they were always bad people. D:

    90% of the time when a character or person is named Nina, they're usually ...interested in sex in a bad way (starts with an S ends with a t) or annoying. D:

    I aim to know my stuff. *_*

    (Woah, My name's Nina. But I'm not a stalker! In real life anywyays...)

    Even though I'm not super knowledgeable about certain details like stats and movesets, I'm pretty much the Pokemon Guru in my circle of friends. It's not pretty when someone makes some crap up. My sharing moment!
    This kid Mason just talks alot. Okay, whatever, we deal with him. We start talking about Pokemon and laugh at the fact they let 10 year olds roam around the land with beasts that may hurt them.
    Then Mason says "You know in the original Japanese version they start they they are 14?" Complete and utter bull.
    "No, that's not true at all."
    "Well it may be different in the anime and games but in the anime-"
    "They start when they are 10. Someone lied to you."
    "The subs said-"
    "You're subs are wrong."
    "Well it said-"
    "You're wrong."
    Maggie: "JUST SHUT UP AND LISTEN TO NINA!" She didn't even know if I was right or wrong she told me later, but she 'knew' that I was right.
    A few years back that "in the original version" crap would have maybe worked, but we exchange too much information now to pull that off. I mean, there's a whole SITE to the dub changes. <3 Dogasu.

    That is one of the rare moments I've been pretty scary. owo

    Ah hah, nail on the head. I'm really an attention 'lover' who tries to be subtle, but that subtle tends to go unnoticed, so I fail at my task! ;_;
    Kay, just a little bit. I don't necessarily want loads of attention, I just want two - five comments on a blog or sprite or thread that are worthwhile. Which is actually pretty hard.

    Most of my 'hi''s are, "WHAT!? Why do you have two supporter badges?!" ahaha. I wax and wane on when I feel courageous enough to say hi or something like that. Lately I've been more assertive as I thanked Fox and for me it's even harder to talk to staff or people held on a higher social plane, but I guess because I was being sincere I didn't feel like I'd bother him with my message.

    xD; It's horrible because only ONCE have I stepped up and said 'hi' in real life. You know that best friend I was talking about? She came up to my desk while I was reading a book, turns around and say quite loudly "Hey! Do you mind if I sit here?",
    I gave a teeny little nod and went back to my book. She's a very out going person so she was astounded that I pretty much (in her view, not mine) completely ignored her. So she pursued to be friends with me.

    Though, when I did go from the school we met at to a school where my previous school can fit on the steps up to the first of 6 buildings, I had to be a bit more assertive. I just needed one friend, and I entered into a conversation about the book he was reading (Twilight, and he had a whole bunch of Manga on his desk) and said that I could sit with him and his friends at lunch. :> So I've had it easy making friends besides the inital freakout when first entering this school, so I wonder if I have enough experience to do well when I'm in an environment alone...

    I do look for gratification, even if I don't want to be like that. ;_; I just hate not being acknowledged.

    Well, I would be a friend to everyone new I met, it's just that I don't approach people and no one approaches me. :>

    I'm sure it will teach me valuable lessons. ;_; Doesn't mean I'll enjoy those lessons. (Haha, okay I'm not dreading TOO much, but still.)

    I've got the one friend I think I need for the rest of my life, so I think I'm good! <3 I need to get better at making and talking to casual friends though, I can't follow her around like a little chick everywhere and it annoys me when I feel so lonely.

    The problem about online communities is that people only comment sometimes. If you really do hunger for good critique you might have to approach those you wish to give it personally. If you're like me you'll worry about being a bother. xD;
    Now, if you really want some hard critique, the kind that will eat you alive, I suggest you go to Pixelation.
    Only if you want your pixel art to not be a hobby because really, a lot of these people are professional and they will be harsh.

    Even though it would be good if we gave direction to the young pixel artists here, your life is always more important. If you can't give it the time it needs, don't feel bad. I should feel bad because I do have a lot of free time right now and I don't really comment or critique at all.

    I dread the day when I have a job, but I'm going to need one so I better be prepared to surrender my large amounts of free time. Even if my parents pay for my college I still need money to live and buy art supplies and I'm not asking them to buy me that stuff while they're already working on their own debt and loan money for me and my sister.

    If you just keep updating they are bound to stay alive. It's just that most people give up by now or want to start a new thread. I like to start anew when I leave for a time.

    I think...That's just a normal part of life. I HATED it when I was 12-13 and my friend from Britain was going to college and was on so much less. My friend from Canada who is my same age, but started earlier I now talk to much less because she also has college and other duties. It's around this time you realize your life and future is more important than your online activity, even if that means not talking to some good friends and such. Just like for those that want to go out of state or a different college than their peers have to see that their future is more important than going to a college not good for you because you want to stay with some buddies that you might not ever talk to again after you get out of college as well.
    In 10th grade when me and my best friend went to different high schools for career reasons I had to see that, and I didn't expect to go to the same college as her, but strangely it's alright. It probably because I know we'll be best friends anyways, but it's something that we have to see. (It turns out if I get accepted to SCAD we're going to be together, but that's not the point!) We're going to grow and sometimes it takes a toll on this entertaining sites like PC.

    I personally want to stay here even when I'm in college as I already have a low profile here and it doesn't take much time, but those so thoroughly invested sometimes have to cut it off completely to get real work done.
    So, new kiddie will come and maybe some will be great. I do wish one of us old cronies here would try to reign them in and mold their talents, but that's just what I always want to do with every child that shows an interest in an art form.
    But, teaching is really trying on the teacher because some will give up or react badly and even though YOU know their potential and what 'they could be' they just might not see it and they can just throw it all away.

    ANYWAYS. We can either just let the little new ones take our place as they are supposed to or try and guide them in the way of how we think things should be done. Which is what I would like to do, but I'm not really assertive and I don't think I'm good at critiquing, which is the only thing we can really do. You will never really be able to carry a good conversation like you can with those at your own maturity level, and only a few of those kids might be able to do that.

    I'M BABBLING. At least I'm not the only one who feels so old in the world of spriting. I was pretty much the Head Spriter of HOF's group because I was the only one who could keep a cap on my emotions, i.e, oldest. I'm pretty sure the oldest under me was 14 or so.

    Nope, I live in Arkansas, so it's a 7-10 hour trip for me if I go. (It's a 12 hour trip for SCAD!) There are no art colleges in Arkansas, the closest is Memphis (MCA), but it's not the one I want to go to.

    <3 My GPA isn't spectacular as it is, but I don't plan on slipping soon. Because my previous school is odd I took my last year of English last year, so I only really have 1 core class, which is Transition To College Math which is EASY!~
    I just have to work on my three(fourish) art classes, which are not easy like some people think they are. <3 But I'm doing extremely well and really I've just wanted to do more and more recently!
    Your preaching is good! If I had kept my gpa up in previous years my teacher could have recommended me for a special and big scholarship to SCAD, but I didn't meet the gpa or act requirements...

    Thank you for your congrats!
    What have you been up to?

    Yup really liked the sprites. I just need them so they fit in the standard 4x4 array so they can be used like event. I don't know how size can work though, so it would be hard to see exactly how to work it. I want it to work so it has the standard box around it (when you go to select it as an event piece) so the player can "drive." If you can get back to me, and if you'd like I could name probably hundreds of cars that would keep you busy.
