As a relatively young artist, I am so fucking terrified of how much I don't know and how much I haven't done. Does that go away or should it just be this way? Is there hope for me yet? You're awesome, dude.
The optimist in me wants to say yes but the truth is, it only goes away if you will it away. I used to get really down about how far I had to climb to get “good”. But the entire experience is way more enjoyable once you change your perspective and get excited about learning those things. Celebrate every little victory. You know how to draw the other eye? Celebrate. You figured out how weird ears are? Celebrate. You got hip bones down? Celebrate. Every little thing. Perspective and shading and lineless vs lineart, ect etc. Pick one thing, go at it with all you’ve got. Master it. Move on to the next thing.
Once you start having fun with it, you don’t even notice the fear. It’s all just “look i figured it out, i got it” and then you get to tackle the next puzzle. Anyone can do it. It’s all about your mindset and how much you want it.
Don’t be afraid, yo. Life is too short.
Maybe I'm missing it somewhere(I am sorry if this comes off as mean /-\ Im terrible at analyzing things)but in your comic, I feel like Percy shouldn't be yelled at for now breaking down and letting his PTSD get to him.He's held out pretty long and managed to not let it get the best of him. So,I guess what I mean is: Percy is right about Nico. Nico has been in Percy's spot before. So I don't see why he's getting angry at him or punches him for saying what he did. (so sorry if that sounded mean)
It’s not mean at all, no worries!
Somewhat explanation of the percy / nico comic below the cut:
I love ur blog. Youre art is amazing and so skilled. Like i will never reach ur amount of talent. <3 <3
dude not with that attitude
it’s not about if you get there
it’s about when
... seven half bloods as dogs...?
I’m not gunna front, I can’t draw dogs for shit. So I’m probably not going to do this. I love dogs. I do. I just can’t draw the little beasties. Cats make sense to me, somehow dogs do not
but jason would be a yellow lab and percy would be a husky that is all
hi hi hi i love your art. I just reently gollowed you after i saw the "ket me make this one thing clear" photo set (its amazing!) and i was wondering if you would mind if i printed it down some where. Not for profit or anything but just a mood booster on my note book.
Yeah, that’s cool. B) Long as you’re not selling it or claiming it as your own, I don’t mind, since I haven’t gotten around to selling it.
hey!! i just wanted to ask what your brush settings are for your lineart :) ?
I don’t do anything fancy, I usually just use the brush pen on it’s smallest size. If I don’t use the brush pen, I use the marker pen at it’s smallest. Sometimes if I’m just drawing a quick thing, I use the pen tool. No fancy settings on any of them, just the tiniest sizes. The smallest imaginable.
Tumblr didn’t send me any kind of notification about asks!! Like at all! There are like 12 new messages sitting there. I’m so sorry about that. Plblb. I was wondering why everyone suddenly stopped messaging me, I thought my wild luck on tumblr had run out, haha.
I’ll try to answer them now! I’m an RA at my college and we JUST moved everyone in so things are a little crazy. On top of that I’m working at the school this year AND classes start on Tuesday. If I miss your message, I’m super sorry! It’s nothing personal at all, I’m just slowly dying on the inside it’s normal it happens it’s art school
There. 4 and a half hours and a lot of shitty jokes later, I have finished the decorations for the doors on my floor. Move in day starts in 8 hours. I still have to put up signs. RIP
Has anyone else read the Leven Thumps books or am I completely alone here in my appreciation for this adorable little bean?
quick doodle of this super rude boy before work
Hang Me, Oh Hang Me
"Hang me, oh, hang me; I’ll be dead and gone…"
Wanna cry while you think about Percy and Nico’s rocky relationship? Here you go. I have it on a loop every time I work on this stupid comic, you can all suffer with me.
If you ever feel down about anything simply tell yourself I am enough *bear hug*
