Neil Gaiman has released a book of his great commencement address, Make Good Art.
When things get tough, this is what you should do: Make good art. I’m serious. Husband runs off with a politician — make good art. Leg crushed and then eaten by a mutated boa…
this is something I struggle with everyday =_= putting pen to paper/stylus to monitor is always the toughest part! you don’t really know what will come out or how people will react to it (that is, if you even decide to share it with others).
I’m trying my darndest to bare my all and simply draw honestly. not over-analyzing or criticizing every line, nor hiding pages of art for fear of judgement or worse, no reaction at all. I believe that art is not only a form of release, but a way of communicating, forming bonds, sharing ideas, making friends. but first you’ve gotta make it! and if you so dare, show it!
Thanks for being so patient! For more info, here’s the orignal post on my DA (links and written tips) :>
~this made me think of you, redribbonrobot :D~
people’s comic making methods always amaze me! such dedication 8O you’re essentially packing multiple pieces of art within a piece of art WITHIN a piece of art (BRMMMBRRMMMMMMM)! for whatever reason animating seems less daunting to me than creating a comic @_@
oh, lookit this some old art from last year
I’d originally referenced fin de siècle French dancers, but she came out more 1950’s in body type and pose! so dainty.
i’m hackin’ in the new year, y’all! despite actually having an awesome boyfriend, but BOTH of us being too sick to spend new year’s eve together, today was still pretty cool. lying in bed, watching horror movies and King of the Hill on Netflix.
Happy New Year everyone! hope 2013 treats you like the Kings n Queens n everything in betweens that you are :)
and my god hello to you delightful new followers and thank you for all the Likes :) my dash was all crazy like
i feel a might uneasy posting early concept sketches buutttt redribbonrobot
demanded kindly asked that i post them.
he works as a librarian/archivist. :) i just see him scurrying up and down mountainous stacks of books, burrowing little nooks and crannies to hide in because, while he loves his job, he’d much prefer hiding away to read than tending to customers.
*lol* i’m in a Sugar Rush kinda mood!
Redribbonrobot shamelessly took advantage of this and requested i Sugar Rush her up as well! she fancies donuts, berry pies, reese’s peanut butter cups, n ice cream (think i forgot that one ^^; ) NO IDEA if these colors actually go well together but it makes me happy, so it passes XD
i originally wanted to add in a helmet, but also wanted to show off her AWESOME new hair cut. plus, the helmet was so HUGE to fit her HUGE HEAD that it just. it just was too much. their heads are so large how do they even dress themselves their shirts must be made of space age spandex
Yup, saw Wreck It Ralph, couldn’t resist drawing myself as a Sugar Rush racer. I call her Cinnimini Choconut (or Chocobutt >w>). Candy doesn’t charge these batteries as much as cinnamon buns, red velvet cupcakes, any kinda pastry or chocolate really…. *melts*
