    I've got the "Sheep People" that live in my stories "Dreamland" wearing Vintage Sailor Outfits.

    I'm guessing the inspiration for that was http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYk6rPpIvAI

    They also use Lollipops as weapons, LOL

    There are "Pig People" too, and they are also based on a vintage design, "1940's" clown costumes

    The pig person I was talking about.

    I decided to try and make it look like a cut out character to fit a storybook style.

    Though, I now have an idea for an improvement on it

    I also figured out how to make the animation into a GIF

    What I was able to do this quarter for class.




    Took months of work, spending all my days off and what time I could during class.

    If I didn't have to go to work so often I probably could have done it faster

    I've been done with school since the end of march, and for a while I've just been enjoying doing nothing because those projects took up ALL my free time and were very stressful, but at the same time fun.

    However, something changed.

    I've actually been feeling REALLY empty lately without school.

    It all happened at once. I was feeling really fulfilled and proud of a drawing I made recently.

    However, I uploaded it online and no one commented or Favorited it.

    I then wanted to show this girl at work, but she hasn't BEEN at work since I finished it. I think she quit. (Which didn't help my empty feeling)

    I kind of wish someone would at least post a "You suck" comment on my art sometimes.

    Not having school anymore is a pretty empty feeling, since that's been nearly 20 years of my life.
    At first it was I'm free, now what. Then get a job, then now it's back to routine.

    Being online is pretty empty too, when there's no presence to be had. Shame it has to be related to promoting yourself.
    I can't just sit there and hope my fan art suddenly gets a burst of followers. Unless you're god damn good at your arts.

    "You suck" -- at least they took the time to look at it.

    That happens man, and I feel like it happens kind of randomly. Some things I post get no attention at all whereas sometimes others are unexpectedly popular, and most of the time it has nothing to do with how good the piece is. *shrug* Sometimes personally I'll think something looks good but for whatever reason don't favorite/like/reblog the work, which isn't really helping the artist, but my point is that people may like your work even if they're silent about it.

    If you think your work was good from an unbiased perspective, then hey, that work was good. Some people might've failed to recognize it, but something else that you make in the future will definitely get noticed.

    Also, "You [don't] suck". I like your creative vision

    That sounds really cool, i bet it'd be totally rad to work on a game

    I study psychology. o _o I considered art schools but ultimately went with this... I'd like to become a therapist or something but if I ever got a really good art-related career offer I'd take it lol

    Bump.

    going through old bookmarks, while procrastinating a paper. found a link to this thread.

    I started posting in dis thread 5 or so years ago. I was a junior(?) "studying" biology. i am now about to graduate with an unimpressive BA in visual arts at the hella old age of 26.

    I'm still a filthy scrub.

    but without the friendliness of the people in this thread, i wouldn't be the same scrub i am today.

    (img below helped me get a position teaching art to chinese kidz. should hold me over until i can purely subsist on being tsuaii on patreon. sakimichan and every other artist only has a patreon bc of me dontchaknow. i revolutionized freelance art forever doe)

    2015-01-30.png

    (i am not the cute gril in the bottome left painting. but i am the boy that asked her out. she said nah bc im not good enough at painting.)

    thank you to the OG AE homies, for who a time were my only art-related support, and who still today remain to provide motivation, advice, and root for me even though i am still trash.

    here's to becoming gawdliek in the near future~
