some super old thingy I decided to finish
These guys can be beary emotional, thats fur sure. It’s almost impawsible!!
"if you’re 18 why do you still ask your parents for permission"
I seriously thought it was normal to ask permission to do things from the people that own the house you live in and provide for you, even if you’ve reached the magical age of 18. I’m going to continue being polite and nice to my parents until they are no longer around. I seriously thought that this was normal.
I would describe you as an amazing artist and super inspiring person who has a great ask blog about an important cause and i love you forever and they will love you too :)

Write in my ask how you’d describe me to somebody who’s never met me
This could go incredibly bad
Anonymous asked: Since that person asked you that art question...how do you become better at art, since your art is just gorgeous
Thank you, first of all. <3
Practice. It’s a lot of practice. It is trial and error, it’s scribbling shit out, ripping out pagers, deleting drawings, getting frustrated, giving up, taking breaks, it’s a lot of falling down and picking yourself back up.
P r a c t i c e. Try to draw every day, even just a little doodle.
USE REFERENCES. If there’s anything DeviantART is good for, it’s stock photos and references. It’s not cheating, you won’t get better by drawing what you KNOW, but by drawing what you see.
All of my most successful art pieces have come from using references, I promise you that.
No matter what your art style is, you need to know anatomy, you need to know how bodies work. “but im a cartoonis—” no you still need to.
Find your inspiration, make a tag for it, hell make a blog for it. Fill it up with stuff that inspires you.
Look at other artists, watch some drawing tutorials, some speedpaints. Surround yourself with art!
Just—you get better at drawing by drawing.
You think it’s cool to hate things. And it’s not. It’s boring. Talk about what you love and keep quiet about what you don’t.
Anonymous asked: how do u stay positive while drawing like i cannot stay positive all i think about my art is its just shit and people who dont know art as much as i do are excelling more at it like wtf
There was a time a few years ago where I hated every single thing that I drew. I picked apart my art so bad to the point where I wanted to give up.
But now, I’m very proud of my art. I’m happy, I want to show it off. If I showed what I could do now to myself back then, my past self would be in shock.
Every artist hits that slump, they do. It sucks, it happens. Whether it’s that they’re just unhappy, they’re comparing themselves to others, or that they just have burned themselves out.
But you just have to push through it. Force yourself to stay positive, and if you’re mad or sad about your art, draw how you feel. Draw without thinking. If you feel like you aren’t good enough, work to improve. Look at other artists, find your muse, find your inspiration, look at references, draw from life.
Realize that every artist grows at their own pace, you are not awful or worth any less because you aren’t at the level of some other artist.
Realize also that your art is for you. Not to please others.
All I can say is nothing is going to get better if you just sit around and loath your art, you gotta work hard to get to wherever you’re happy.
