I'm having trouble on figuring my art style, I recently got into drawing comics but I feel like I'm copying someone else's style of drawing idk, have any advice?
draw from life lots and you develop your own shorthand but mainly also style doesn’t mean shit.
this took me way too long to figure out even though everyone said the same thing, cause yoooo my consistency is incredibly over the map and i would get anxious to the point where I couldn’t draw happily anymore and it was awful. but seriously? no one cares. it doesn’t matter, if you draw it, it’ll look like you drew it. so really don’t worry about it, just draw TONS of different things and experiment LOTS and have FUN and everything will fall into place~<3
First it takes someone who not only can draw but who wants to get better so badly that they will obsess about it everyday in their sketchbook and feel the frustration that comes with learning and growing and they will also rise above the inadequate feelings and low confidence and believe in themselves to a point where they are ok with making mistakes and growing from them, they are ok with busting out pages as fast as they can and as best as they can for a deadline. And they are ok with being broke for a while. Being an artist ain’t no joke, you’ll go through a time of being dirt poor. And if you are good/creative enough, and fast enough, and easy to work with enough, then you’ll Probably land a sweet gig. So basically it takes talent plus persistence plus luck. Enjoy.
IT WAS SO COOL I’m so happy I fiiiiinally got to see it in the act, but man, he is SUCH A DUMMY gosh I love him to pieces~<333 and wow dude he is so freakin’ VIBRANT this time and man if this is what his adult colors are shaping up to be like DAMN did I luck out, he is seriously the bestttt~<33333
Rules: Don’t take too long to think about it. Ten animes you’ve seen that will always stick with you. List the first ten you can recall in no more than 10 minutes. Tag 10 friends

Hi! I'm wondering what do you think about the mother-son dynamic between mako and lin? Maybe not exactly mother and son but you probably know what i mean. In season 4 they're so close!
it’s adorable, in a kinna maternal way but also just like, IT’S NICE THAT LIN HAS A FRIEND. I assume and hope that she’s supposed to get on well with the rest of the police lol, but within Team Avatar it’s nice to have someone she’d get along with because their normally offputting personalities work together. It’s nice for her to be connected to someone in team avatar who isn’t Tenzin. I hope they expand on it. On the more meta side of things it’s also cool having a young guy who’s mentor is an older woman.
WELL I was wearing the shirt I got from ya today SO YOU WERE HERE IN SPIRIT LUV~<333 (next time you’re up in NY ya def gotta come over and chill, idk when that is, but IT’S GONNA HAPPEN and it’ll be rad~xoxox)
yessss Definitely, can’t wait to hang~!! A fair number already said they’d come to the next one too lol, so it should be the same number of people just about haha, but…maybe I won’t invite 40 this time…XD;;; <333
forever sad you live on the other side of the country dude, haha~! Miss you~<333
Guys the petition to recognize Fibromyalgia as a disability ends this month and it needs 97.5 K signatures still please sign this petition its extremely important. Fibromyalgia is ‘a common syndrome in which a person has long-term, body-wide pain and tenderness in the joints, muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues. Fibromyalgia has also been linked to fatigue, sleep problems, headaches, depression, and anxiety'
I'm interested in that talk you gave. Was it recorded? If not, would be really cool if you could roughly summarize it! Only if you have the time, of course.
ah, well thanks~! :D I don’t think it was, maybe someone recorded bits of it? I think I saw one or two doing that at some points but I’m not sure haha.
If people are interested I could do some type of breakdown on what the topics were: networking, talking to publishers, what not to say lol, breaking in, small jobs, dealing with deadlines, understanding and working with your weaknesses, realizing your strengths, self care, creating a community, etc. Right now I am…dealing with some crazy deadlines!!
Like super crazy, and there are apparently 20+ people coming over my place tomorrow to draw, because these are the kind of things I just organize lolll, so…maybe expect something next week? Like around wednesday? I can probably put something together if people are interested~! Thank you! :)
