hello! i was wondering if you have any tips for traditional lineart, as i am struggling a lot with confident lines. thank you! (and sorry if already answered;;)
I’m generally a “messy” Lineartist, and I just go with the flow, try to add as much curves as you can and don’t make any stiff or straight lines. I jag a lot, and don’t quite make a full on line and it’s perfect, but I like my “messy” style, so I keep it rough. It’s all about finding what you like. I prefer medium pressure when drawing because If It’s too light or needs adjustments, I could easily add on or erase. Although it really depends on the Style I’m using, sometimes I tend to go more Bold, or to feather it in. It’s hard to say since everyone has their own styles and preferences, but I just tend to “stay loose”, make it as if it were a moving thing with actual weight and emotion. It’s good to remember you must have confidence in your art, it may not be to your liking, but work at it and I’m sure after some time, you’ll make it! I hope I was helpful, and I wish you luck :]
Hum so since there is always the concern with young aces, or teens identifying as ace, I wanted to share a story with some ace blogs.
When I was 12, we had a sex ed sessions. Not going to enter the details, but it was overall horrible, and I honestly didn’t have any interest in it and it was pretty obvious. I don’t know how it happened, but my lack of interest was reported to my head teacher who called me in his office. The first thing he told to a 12 yo who wasn’t interested in sex was “were you abused?”
In hindsight, it came from a good sentiment, but it’s pretty telling if it’s abnormal not to be interested in sex at 12. Adults, teachers, saw me as broken, because I wasn’t interested in sex. It was obviously not normal! And “abuse” the only possible explanation.
I didn’t have the words back then - whether asexual or even sex-repulsed - so I couldn’t explain myself. In a class of rougly 30 12/13 years old kids, I was the only one with such a lack of interest.
So, when I see people asking “I’m 14, can I be ace or am I too young?” I remember the insistance this teacher had that I had to be interested, when I was only 12. While, yes, at 14 you could be a late-bloomer, you could also be ace and stay that way. I only discovered the word half through college, but I was definitely already ace back in middle school. So, from my point of view, it’s great you already found the word! Things’ll be less confusing for you, especially in high school.
