UPDATE: I'm feeling a little better. I think I'll just be taking a break so I can get things in order. My apologies to those who wanted to see another Obscuri-Jam entry, but I don't think I have it in me to finish one. Everything else I mentioned I'll get to, but it'll take a while.

You're all probably wondering when I'm getting to those overdue commissions. And more SplatDown. And that Omniverse Pageant picture. And maybe one other Obscuri-Jam entry. To be honest... I don't know when I'm getting to them anymore. I mean, I'm sure I'll finish them one day because I hate to disappoint you guys, but the problem is... I just don't have any drive left.

Yeah, I've made journal entries about being depressed plenty of times before and I'm sure some of you are sick of hearing about it, but I don't know what else to do during times like this than to share my problems with my friends.

I seem perky most of the time, but I've actually been having a rough time for the past week. I've gotten a harsh reality check on how unorganized I am and how little I know about the world around me. I'm so behind on stuff I promised and so confused about what's right and wrong these days, I just can't seem to move forward. That and my sleep schedule has been pathetic, complete with some of the weirdest and most exhausting dreams I've had in a while. I really feel like my mind is broken and getting worse.

You can leave some kind words if you want, but I don't know if it'll help. The lessons I learn from these times never seem to stick with me and I always seem to sink back into depression. Maybe I'll feel a little better after a nap... even though I've needed a lot lately.

UPDATE: I talked things over with the head of the "Rise and Fall of Nickelodeon" group on Facebook, the people I accused of taking joy in people losing their jobs, and it turns out it was a big misunderstanding. He and I actually agree on a lot of things Nick is going through and he was only directing his schadenfreude at the higher-ups of Viacom, the real bad guys who make that poor decisions that affect the hardworking artists. On top of that, he actually does want to see Nickelodeon improve; He just seems mean because he uses a "tough love" approach. In short, he's really a good guy with good intentions and, like him in this update he wrote, I'm sorry for this mess. However, I'm keeping this journal up (with a few alterations) to let people know about a kinder approach to helping out the artists of Nickelodeon. For those of you who are interested in the tough love method I mentioned, try giving that "Rise and Fall of Nickelodeon" group a look.

I've heard for a while that Nickelodeon's ratings have been low lately, but it wasn't until just now that I read up on how shockingly low they were. No, they're not at Discovery Family's level of low, but they're definitely at crisis levels.

According to the Washington Post, low ratings across all Viacom channels have led to the announcement of layoffs and $785M in expenses.

It's unknown how many layoffs there will be or what apparently under-performing shows could be written off or abandoned, but it's likely that a few Nick shows and employees could be let go in the near future. Many employees at Nick, from artists to writers, are kind and talented folk who had nothing to do with the boneheaded business moves that Viacom makes. I've seen a lot of them on Tumblr and other social media and they love their jobs. The thought of them losing all of that because of the incompetent heads of their parent company is just sad.

Despite all the hiccups they've had, I still believe Nickelodeon has the ability to shape up and become respectable again. So far this year, they've shown that they're still capable of making good decisions and having good animated output, such as the recent SpongeBob movie, the consistently entertaining TMNT series, and their newest potential hit Harvey Beaks. Let's not forget its promising plans for the future, like Pig Goat Banana Cricket, The Loud House, Sky Rat, and a new season of SpongeBob that has creator Stephen Hillenburg back on the writing staff. All of this truly makes me think that Nick could get back on track, but it can only happen if the company's in good enough health to do so.

So let's try being compassionate and show support for the good parts of Nickelodeon by doing some of the following:
  • Show your support towards the various talented artists that currently work at Nick. Many of them are on Tumblr and regularly draw really nice things. Some likes and reblogs are enough to spread some love.
  • If you know anyone who owns a Nielsen box and has kids, ask them to tune into to Nick more often. Watching a show of theirs doesn't help ratings unless they have one of those boxes.
  • Talk about the current shows on Nick you actually like on social media like Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, and others. Some networks are going by social buzz rather than ratings to know which shows to keep supporting. The more buzz, the better!
For those of you who feel like calling out Viacom on their mistakes, remember these things:
  • Don't trash Nickelodeon or Viacom as a whole. Instead, direct your aggression towards the higher-ups that are actually responsible for doing whatever you're mad about. Do proper research so you know who to be mad at.
  • When writing letters or any kind of messages to the company expressing your displeasure with them, don't be rude or insult them. Simply provide constructive criticism that tell what they can do to better themselves. Either that or just show support for whatever they currently have that you still like.
Now let's get out there, do our part, and keep our fingers crossed that Nickelodeon gets back on its feet.

RULES:

-In terms of fan art, I can only draw characters and things from shows and franchises I'm familiar with. However, I will occasionally do art of something that's nearly a complete mystery to me, if it's not too complicated and/or I like the challenge. If you're not sure what franchises I know about, just ask me about the one you have in mind.

-NO bashing of any franchise. (unless I hate it too)

-I won't always do OC art, but don't be afraid to ask and don't be disappointed if I refuse. I'll do my own OCs without question though.

-There are a number of fetishes I won't do, including but not limited to: Expansion (breasts, butts, and muscles are exceptions if they're not too obscenely big), inflation, vore, bubbles, and most furries (as an example, Kitty Katswell is fine). I'm currently on the fence about Yaoi and Yuri stuff.

-NO VISIBLE NUDITY... Unless you're fine with it being only on my blog. (bare butts and boobs are fine, though)

-NO BLOOD OR GORE, unless it's very light.

Just remember that you all get only one commission at a time each. You also have to pay before I start on it, but inform me when you have payed. The PayPal account to pay is rh_ledbetter@yahoo.com, but remember that my real email address is tlrledbetter@gmail.com if you want to talk to me.

Yeah, that's a real polite way of addressing people with a different opinion than you...

Read some of that guy's comments before jumping to conclusions. For instance:
"I know not every show sucks, but people calling other people "Haters" is just stupid. I respect people who like or hate a show that I feel the opposite about. Calling them a Hater makes you look more asinine than the person you're trying to mock. It's not a good road to travel."

This has nothing to do with hating other people for different opinions. It's about voicing your opinion in an intelligent way.

Eh, I guess.

Still, it irks me how he seems incapable of going five seconds without slamming Nick. For instance, in one post he talks about Cartoon Network having this event in Europe that teaches kids the basics of animation (which actually sounds pretty cool) and then complains about how Nick doesn't do anything. That is not only irrelevant, but ignorant of their scholarship.

Sorry, I had to vent. I've been feeling a little insecure about my opinions lately.

He talked to me about this. It's what you'd call "tough love." He told me that he would like to see Nickelodeon return to its old glory, but until that happens, he's going to be openly honest about their current flaws in hopes that they end up fixing them. I'll admit that I am annoyed by pitting two networks against each other like that, but I'm not going to say anything.

Don't be insecure just because other people don't agree with you. Stop worrying about what others think of your favorite things and keep on liking them. Why? Because YOU like them. That's all that matters. Just don't go insulting others for not agreeing with you. Just say something like "I disagree, but I respect your opinion" and just walk away.

Sorry if I'm bothering you by asking about Splatdown again, but I just wanted to know some things that weren't about playable characters:

- Do you plan on drawing stages?
- Are there Assist Characters similar to Smash's Assist Trophies?
- Is the story mode an arcade mode sort of thing or is it more like Brawl's adventure mode?

Did you hear about Nick's SDCC schedule? m.facebook.com/story.php?story…

Sadly, I don't think I'll be attending, but the fact that we'll be getting first looks at PGBC and The Loud House excites me.

If even the people at R&FoN are saying it's a decent lineup, it's bound to be good.
