i still have temporary disney princess tattoos on the underside of my arm from a couple days ago (don't ask) and someone asked me if they were real and i said they were and the person got really creeped out I was like bitch don't judge me. Ps belle was on my left arm and cinderella and ariel on my right. they are slowly fading like my dreams of scaring people into thinking i have real tattoos
next time look them right in the eye and be like “yes, these each represent a princess I’ve killed”
So is River dead?! She's my favorite character! :( was that present River or future River? Xx
Spoilers under the cut regarding the Series 7 Finale, The Name of the Doctor, you’ve been warned!
Hi, Maya! I'm a huge fan of your work and it's really inspirational for me, so I wanted to tell you a bit of a story. last year my art teacher told me I'd never get a career in the arts if I used my own style. I would have been fine if she had just said "don't draw cartoons in my class" or "try drawing more realistically" but instead she basically crushed my dreams in front of the whole class. Then she took me to the advanced art teacher and had her tell me the same thing (cont.)
i have actually experiences something similar! not to that extent, of course (that is waayyyyy inappropriate), but my high school also discouraged us from drawing comics
i grew up thinking that in order to be a good artist i had to draw naturalistically and have some sort of deep meaning behind everything i did. even when i started taking comic classes at mcad, i had managed to convince myself that i needed to draw naturalistically and, to be honest, i hated it. i hated doing it and i hated the outcome as well. then i took a summer to relax and watch cartoons and it finally dawned on me: it’s okay to like cartoons and to draw them. plenty of artists that i love draw cute cartoony things. it’s okay no matter what other people say. there is a market for that work and you can be successful and happy doing that
i know it sounds silly to say that, but it took my until about a year and a half ago to realize that and now i am way more happy than before.
i wish you all the best and i hope your new art program is much better!
