Pick a character I’ve written and I will explain the top ~three to five ideas/concepts/etc I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to accurately depicting them.
OH I LIKE
THIS LEAVE ME SOME OF THESE TO DO
I’m waiting for Kyle to come fetch Nick so sure I’ll do some of these if people want.
I can also ramble about what I keep in mind when I draw them, too, is up to you
Thank you so much for your input. I guess I was just hung up on how they had made fun of me so viciously, stating every little flaw with my art (hands, headshapes) and it really killed because I was doing something I had wanted to for a long time. I wasn't getting paid big for it. It was purely for me. But seriously, thank you. Also, my boyfriend fiance' and I are totally into gross dudes and weird characters too, transgay grody boys unite! Haha.
Of course! And i totally understand, its really easy to get hung up on all the bad stuff. But just what you said art is all about doing what YOU wanna do! :3
And thank you so much! gross trans boys are the best XD
I love your art, dude. I love your style. But I'm in need of advice really badly. I've been drawing my whole life and hell, I enjoyed it. I knew I was decent at it, but someone really bad and bitter in my life who was more talented made a point to tell me how untalented I was. Mocked and laughed at me for getting a small temp job, and ever since then I can't pick up a pencil without wanting to cry. I just can't do it anymore. I feel like it's been taken from me. I'm sorry to dump this on you.
I’m so sorry to hear that you have felt like this, and for some time too.
I have been in a similar place before. For over a year I gave up on art entirely because I thought I would never compare to the people whose art I saw on Deviantart or tumblr.
One thing I really had to learn, and I think so does every artist, Is you can’t let yourself compare your own art to others’, Whether or not you feel they’re more talented than you. That includes taking what other people and artists say with a grain of salt. I know it’s so easy to believe something if you’ve heard it over and over, but what they said isn’t the truth and there is a very big difference between simple insults and REAL constructive criticism that you should actually take to heart.
No one should ever make you feel bad for getting a job, even if that job is small. It’s very rare people start out right away with something huge and glamorous. Besides, the fact that you got a job is something to be proud of!
What you have to do is really try and separate yourself from that experience and those lingering thoughts, I know its hard, believe me. But I also know that is is possible, and I will always think art is worth it. Because your art is unique to you and that is something no one else should be able to ruin or take away from you.
Please don’t apologize for coming to me with this, I just hope I could help even in the smallest way
