an actual question from my tumblr: look at it here.
Feel free to ask my questions on my tumblr!
not to sound really dumb, but what’s tumblr? like specifically rather than “another social networking site”
It’s a social networking site that acts as a blog. You can follow other blogs and they appear on your dashboard, which is kinda like your feed on Facebook.
thanks.. that was quite informative and settled my question… also the question on if I should get one…. haha I suck at blogs… My journal has abandonment issues….
Ahahaha yeah so does mine. My tumblr though has tons of stuff…mostly because I link it to everything else that I use. It really helps…
That might be true, but unfortunately, I am not good at helping others like you. So I’d end up copy and pasting the same entry every day “Today was a good day. Nothing really new to report.”…. not saying I am not active, just not lucky enough to have a progressive activities….
When you were starting out, what did you find to be your biggest problem?
With the comic? I guess spelling mistakes were the biggest things. I’m pretty good at making up storylines on the fly, but I like to plan things out too.
I guess the other problem was my own self-consciousness that I felt like my artwork wasn’t good enough to put out there. I mean, I drew a lot when I was in class, and I always wanted to be an artist, but I kept surrounding myself with people who were so much more talented than I was, and I felt like I was always lagging behind. I went to some pretty good schools that helped me express who I was, and helped me bring out my confidence, but the saying “You are your own worst critic” still rings true. I’m getting better, but I still have my moments.
They also say “Every artist will find the one thing that’s wrong in their work. However minute, in the artist’s mind, it becomes the focal point of their work.” My sister was so amazed when she finished a painting of a Robin, because she loved every part of that painting. She disproved that theory… until she noticed that she forgot to paint the bird’s legs. After that it became her focal point.
sorry that last message really had no point. Your message just reminded me of my sister’s painting and I thought I would share. Are there any times that you become so selfcontious about a comic that you don’t post it up? What would your suggestion be for someone just starting out? who’s been drawing for years but has no artsy friends to hang around?
Alternate tip [ IF (and only if) the majority of the issue lies with you not feeling attractive to the opposite gender]:
You’d be amazed at how many people find ‘a little overweight’ to be sexy. For example, I’m a guy and I find some girls that are even heavier then me to be extremely hot.
That sed it won’t fit everyone. Some look better chubby while others won’t. Try to find an impartial source, preferably of the opposite sex to figure this out.
That’s a pretty good tip. Maybe I should hire you as a secondary advice giver
Flattery will get you anywhere.
I’ve would add this as well (at least it worked for me):
* Change diet gradually so can get used to new diet
* It’s a lot easier to stick to a diet if you like what you’re switching to
* Exercise to keep fit and let losing weight be a secondary consideration
* Don’t crash diet, aim to eat healthily and the weight will come off so be patient
I would also made a blog post about eating healthily and exercising:
Examples of things to do:
If you snack switch a chocolate bar to a banana
Drink pure juice (but only if it’s got the “bits” or is thick) as juice without the fibre part of the fruit is just flavoured sugar water
