If you came to this blog looking for stylistic consistency
I’m sorry it’s never going to happen

Things I feel shitty about #3432: Opening up for Commissions
I hate when people feel bad about taking commissions because more needy people are also taking commissions. You are creating an imaginary conflict because:
1. Your art isn’t the holy grail of commissioned art — people are going to want your art more and other people are going to want other peoples’ art more. You are (probably unintentionally) assuming that your art is superior and more desirable to potential clients.
2. Every artist has a different fanbase???? Even if you ARE a superior artist, commissioners aren’t a finite group of people who follow the exact same artists. Your fans will commission you and other artists’ fans will commission them.
3. You (probably) live in a capitalist society and artists should not be the only people who feel bad for getting paid to provide a skilled service. This is a very harmful mindset that is pretty popular nowadays and leads to a lot of abusive internships and so on. Do you see anyone quitting their jobs to help unemployed people get a break??
In other words…there’s enough artists and patrons to go around, people!!
Tumblr has recently introduced Sponsored Posts. These posts can come from anyone, regardless of whether or not you follow them, and are primarily for advertising. If you want to block them, simply install Tumblr Savior and blacklist “sponsored_badge_icon” (without the quotes).
something I accidentally discovered today! (I’d imagine a lot of color theory stuff was involved with computer fonts that makes them readable and not all pixelated)
Hey spoons your colours are already kickass but check this out
If you love animals or drawing then you should add this book to your collection. The Art of Animal Drawing is a crash course in not only animal anatomy, but usage of lines, page composition, animation and more! It covers over 20 different species, but the material itself may be incorporated into any type of figure drawing.
There’s an online version of the book HERE, or you can purchase it on Amazon.com
(sorry, I’ll be drawing more finished pieces in the future..)
(thank you for following me!!)
I’m just gonna keep drawing monsterblobs goodbye
late night rant I guess
I’ve gotten a couple lately and I think this is something people still need to realize, even though I’ve seen the topic come up a couple times
self-deprecating compliments don’t feel good to anyone involved. it hurts you first and foremost, and it concerns/alienates the artist you are meaning to compliment.
And in that way, I can’t possibly consider them compliments, because compliments should be intended to feel good to at least someone.
I know this very well, because I gave quite a few out in my day, and later, I realized the error in my ways. people are complicated, majestic creatures, and it is hard to talk to them. u_u
I have had a lot of self-confidence issues in the past and I realize how hard it is to relate to someone you admire (heck, the fact that I’m getting these comments at all blows my teeny mind) but replay your comment back to yourself, and try and understand why that would not be comfortable.
“I’ll never be as good, I should just give up”
“in comparison to this, my stuff is awful”
my darlings please don’t say these things about your work
there is a tendency in the creative field to be overly critical to the point of crippling self-doubt, and if you repeat this sort of thing enough to yourself, you can seriously trip up your progress as an artist
I know this, I’ve been through it, and I do not want you to do it too.
especially if I see these things crop up when I can say something about it, it seriously freaks me out to see you guys do this to yourselves.
help promote happy and healthy artists yo and respect your own growth and the growth of others 9v9!
