and please don’t repost or steal, respect the artist work and always give credits to the original source <3

Even if you don’t do art, gifsets, edit videos and photos, write fanfics, you are important and fandom wouldn’t exist without you.

That also doesn’t mean that you’re not an artistic type of person.

There are two types of artistic personality:

a creator, who writes, paints, draw, do videos etc.

and a consumer.

The person, who sees art, for whom it’s made. Without them it wouldn’t matter, because there would be nobody to see the creation. It’s one of the most important roles, but many people do it badly.

How to be a good recipient?

First of all, you need to give feedback. Every time you take time to see/read something. And it can’t be any feedback. It must be good.

Doesn’t matter if it’s a fanart, fic, video, poem or something else. Give kudos. Comment it. Even if you didn’t like it. Especially, if you didn’t like it. It takes only 30 seconds to write something and it shows the author that you saw their work and took time to think about it. It really motivates them.

What you should write?

Well, anything you want. “Great job, keep going!”, “I love the way you did it!”, “Wow, amazing work, I’d love to see more!” is enough. Really.

 Of course, if you decide to say something more it’s great! Authors love to read your thoughts about their work. Tell them about the colours they used, how they match the scene and character, how they build the atmosphere with words, how you love the character development, the typhography they made. Tell them about everything that made you “wow, this is amazing”, about the piece that made you smile or cry or laugh or any reaction you had.

Tell them that you are waiting for sequel for this fic. That you can’t wait for the next fanart of this pairing. That you love seeing their work.

Thank them for it. I know that you know that they do it as a hobby, but thank them for spending their time anyway.

Reading this makes their day. And they’ll tell you that.

Okay, but what if you didn’t like it?

Then you have to write a comment anyway. Criticism is the most important for artist. Without it they can’t make progress.

Writing critique is harder than writing a positive feedback. You have to be precise here. The most important rule is:

DO NOT WRITE “I DON’T LIKE IT”

like really

if you want to write something like that, then better don’t write anything.

You must add what you didn’t like, why, and how they can change that. Constructive criticism is the only one which matters. Otherwise you’ll make them not want to create anymore.

So how good criticism looks like?

“The colours you used don’t fit together. If you used warmer shade of red it would look better!”

“The main character of the story is too perfect, you should add them some flaws to make them more real. Perhaps something with their looks - too thin mouth or some scar? Their personality is also too mary sue. Try to give them some bad traits, maybe they can be blunt or a bit ignorant and listen to nobody’s advice?”

“The person you drew has anatomically incorrect legs - it looks like they don’t have knees. Try to work on it looking at some photos.”

The problem with criticism is that inexperienced artists often take it too personally, like an attack. Good solution is to tell them something nice.

“The scenere is beautiful, but…”
“I love how you write descriptions, but there’s something you need to work on…”

When you write comments it’s also important NOT TO DEMAND ANOTHER PIECE OF ART/CHAPTER/SEQUEL/WHATEVER

It makes them not wanting to contiune their work. So, yeah, encourage them, but not demand. “Is there any chance you’ll do it?”, “I can’t wait for more!”, “Please, continue this, I really want to know what happens next!”

What else you can do as a recipient?

Reblog. Not only like, but also reblog, so more people can see it. Don’t repost and if you have to ALWAYS GIVE CREDITS. And no, “source: tumblr” is not a credit (I feel like I should do another post about it)

Buy. I know all of us are broke, but many artists are really cheap (and that makes me sad). Just ask them to do something customized for you, like keychains or something like that. And pay them for it. Or just donate.

And remember

EVEN IF YOU DON’T CREATE YOU ARE IMPORTANT IN FANDOM AND IT WOULDN’T BE THERE WITHOUT YOU

YOU ARE IMPORTANT

YOU MATTER

(feel free to add some things that I forgot and tell me all mistakes I made, it’s late and my brain is tired so I could use some wrong words but I tried)

❗️EDIT❗️

The person who made this meme is on Twitter @3pieceseach aka Shane Spears. I did NOT create this meme nor did I ever say I did or attempt to imply that I did. If you click on the embedded source in this post, which says “Twitter.com” it will link you directly to the source @3pieceseach Twitter account.

To @3pieceseach , I credited you on Instagram too. I wrote your name there. I always credit the source when I know it or link to the source by embedding the source within the source link or copy and paste the source info on the post. If I don’t know the source I’ll write repost. Sorry for any misunderstanding😊.

DO NOT REPOST THE FULL-SIZED SCAN!!

Attack on Titan poster from PASH September edition!

Scanned and cleaned by amazing 13君要愛裡丁 | Go to her page for full-size

IMPORTANT!

Please do *NOT* redistribute this person’s scans in full-size ANYWHERE! That includes Minitokyo / Tumblr / We Heart It / Zerochan!

Proper credit and source AT ALL TIME! 13君要愛裡丁 deserves at least that!

I spend hours of searching for newest nature photography on flicker, I always make sure the photographer allows sharing, I add credits and source and I think of flattering ways to show them to my followers and it just hurts when someone goes to my blog and repost them instead of reblogging.
Even worse when they remove source and credit.

Any tips for people who want to get into storyboarding? ^_^

Study figure drawing but not the 3 hour kind–the 1-to-5 minute kind, gestural drawings, quick and clear, with a focus on telling a small story in each pose you make.

Draw storyboard assignments for yourself that are short–like 30-70 panels. The longer the project, the less likely you’ll have time to finish it. The thing is, when you finish it, then you gotta go back and fix all the stuff that you realize isn’t working yet. So keep it short to keep yourself from going insane.

Draw scenes from books, draw from scripts you can find online (http://www.imsdb.com/), or make up your own short stories with a beginning, middle, and end. Always credit your source if you storyboard from a script or book.

Join a social group that is interested in the same thing. Could be online, could be a meet-up, could be a community college class, could be a full-on art school. But have a group to show your work with and to get motivated by.

Cube Trainee Yoo Seon Ho Adorably Describes Wanna One Members

Cube Entertainment trainee and former “Produce 101 Season 2” contestant Yoo Seon Ho recently sat down for an interview and talked about the members of Wanna One.

“I have so much to say about them, but I’ll be brief,” he began.

“I’m really close to Kang Daniel. It was awkward with Park Ji Hoon at first, but we’re a lot closer now. Lee Dae Hwi is like a friend, and Kim Jae Hwan is a good singer who’s really funny and playful,” Yoo Seon Ho explained.

He further shared, “I’m really close to Park Woo Jin as well. We got close right before the final live broadcast. Lai Guan Lin is like a brother, Yoon Ji Sung is like a dad, and Hwang Min Hyun is my brother (laughs). Bae Jin Young’s really like a friend, and Ha Sung Woon is like a grandma. I always call him ‘grandma.‘”

Ever see a crazy-long, indecipherable reblog chain on your dashboard? Not ideal, right?

Starting tomorrow, reblogs will have a new look—one that showcases all comments as equals, not buried under an impossible stack of blockquote indents. Our change to reblog captions last month laid the necessary groundwork for us to arrive here, at a place where the dashboard will be a lot easier to read and cleaner-looking.

Here’s how this will look (original on the left, new look on the right):

Questions about all this? Keep reading for the answers…


FAQ

Q: Will this show up for all posts on the dashboard, or just the posts published from here on out?
A: All posts! So you can scroll back in time and see your older reblogs in this format too.

Q: Will it look like this on my blog?
A: Not necessarily: your public blog will continue to display reblogs according to however your chosen theme displays them. The new look is on the dashboard only, for now.

Q: How do I reblog starting from a certain post in the reblog thread?
A: Same as before: Just click the username of whoever made the reblog you want to reblog from. It’ll open up, and you can click or tap its reblog icon to reblog that post. Got it?

Q: Can I edit earlier reblogs, or the original post, in my reblog?
A: You can choose whether or not you want to include that stuff in your own reblog, but you can’t really go in and edit other people’s text. We know—that level of flexibility allowed you guys do some pretty interesting stuff, but it also made misattribution way too easy.

Q: Can I remove all captions on a post that I’m reblogging?
A: Sure. Click or tap the reblog button and click on the X that appears when you hover over the comments.

Q: Can I delete a single reblog caption within the thread?
A: No, it’s an all-or-nothing thing.

Q: How can I be sure my posts are credited properly?
A: Use the content source field! No matter how many times an original post of yours gets reblogged, you’ll always be credited as the source. Rebloggers might add a gif, or some commentary, or take out the caption entirely, but your username will always, always be stuck to the bottom of the post. Click on that source link any time you want to see what was originally posted.

Q: Can I send you my feedback on this change?
A: Yes. And for the record, even when you receive a simple thank-you response (which is necessary since there are millions of you and only a few of us), every word of your feedback is read lovingly by human eyes, then passed along to our engineers.
