I feel Scott is stiles morel compass in a lot of ways....

i think you’ll find plenty of people who agree with you there. stiles is always checking scott to see his reactions to the sketchy things that sometimes come out of his mouth, and he knows scott has the best intentions at heart whereas his.. are not always so kind. i don’t think stiles has any illusions about his grey line living, but he’s also always held scott up to a certain standard and that’s backfired more than once. i don’t really wanna get into that right now. but yes, stiles was pretty lost without scott, and when he thought scott was disappointed and angry with him you could see the complete cloud of doubt that followed him for a long time. and that was self doubt. not doubt in the goodness of scott but the opposite, in that he just couldn’t be good enough for scott. and that selfish part of him is what made him lash out. i think there’s a good dose of jealousy in there, or maybe just despair that no matter how hard they tried to keep the relationship equal and complementary, stiles probably could always tell he’d never live up to scott’s moral clarity. but you know what? scott never needed him to. he’s always loved him just the way he is, the black, the white, and all the grey in between.

Once you get this you have to say five things you like about yourself, publicly, and then send this to ten of your favourite followers (non-negotiable, positivity is cool) ❤

so @canaryboots actually sent this too me too, thank you to both of you, to be honest it took a while to think of five things i actually like about myself, i’m a pretty toxic person i guess. anyway:

  1. i quite like my freckles sometimes they don’t look too bad
  2. i like my imagination, i can come up with characters and a completely different world just by wondering who live in the houses on my route to school.
  3. i like how i pick up other people phrases and mannerisms and use them in my own speech.
  4. i actually like that i’m unsure of my sexuality and gender identity at the moment and maybe its a good thing i don’t know yet.
  5. i like my taste in music, it isn’t exactly bad but its all opinion i guess

those ten people i guess you know who you are?

I’m going to go ahead and admit I don’t understand when Dorian is portrayed as having delicate sensibilities, like being easily disgusted by things? Like. Guy is a necromancer. His field specialization literally involves dealing with corpses. I can’t imagine Dorian being a person who’s truly easily disgusted by things. I mean, one of his abilities literally involves blowing targets up. He might complain, but he\s hardly afraid of getting dirty.

(and I end thinking that the only reason for doing such is stereotyping Dorian based on his sexuality, which bothers me. Dorian is flamboyant, and he’s judgmental, but I can’t see him being truly actually bothered by some things. He’s no battle virgin, unhardened Orlesian noble. On the contrary)

hey,, your a real inspiration to me and I feel that I need to ask you something I suppose,, I've been drawing for years and I'm still not at the skill level that I want to be. I'm very discouraged and honestly I'm ready to give up drawing in general because I'm sick of my art and I feel that it's absolutely terrible in my opinion,, I guess my question is, how do you keep going?? How do you find motivation and inspiration? advice?? (Ur osomatsu San fanart is perfect btw,,)

First, let me say thank you for the kind words~ I’m glad you like my fan art, and I’m even happier that I can be an inspiration to you~!

Secondly, let me preface all of this by saying what you’re feeling is very natural, anon-chan. Anyone who has ever committed themselves to drawing will tell you they’re never satisfied with their skill level. The fact that you feel that way in the first place is actually kind of good in some ways. One should never become complacent in their abilities, striving to improve is a key part of becoming a better artist, afterall. However there’s a big difference between feeling the need to improve and just straight up not liking your own art. If you don’t like what you’re doing, it will show, and that’s not a good thing.

The important thing is to remember is that everyone is different, and art is not an absolute thing. If your sick of your art, you can change that. If you don’t feel like you’re improving, you can change that. If you feel like you’re being left behind by your peers and other artists, that’s fine. What’s important is that YOU like what you’re doing. If you don’t feel like you’re up to par, keep working at it until you DO feel that way–even if it’s about something as simple as a sketch.

Of course, if you really don’t feel good about what you’re doing, you shouldn’t force yourself to produce. My advice in regards to feeling like you outta quit is to maybe just take a break. Nothing can kill a flow more than forcing it. Do something else you enjoy, take some time and absorb other’s work, find what you like and when you feel confident enough to pick your art back up go slow, start with a scribble or even a shape and then move up from there. 

I guess what keeps me going personally, what makes me keep drawing, is a combination of my own love for it and my friends. 

I have many beautiful friends who also love to make art just like me, and nothing motivates me to draw more than when I see the stuff they make and feel inspired to do the same. Just being able to bounce ideas off of them and get opinions on my latest work is enough to keep me going. People always talk about ‘creative energy’ and ‘creative environments’ and after experiencing both first-hand I can say they really do exist and they really do help. Don’t keep your stuff to yourself, and don’t just throw it out for any random person to see and comment on. Find someone you trust, someone who likes to draw just like you and have them give you their honest opinions. Make a conversation–humans are social creatures, and art can be a very social thing.

More importantly though is that I just…Love it.

I just really, really love making art!

It’s just great, to have this thing that’s mine, yanno? As a matter of fact, I was actually quite worried about going to an art college, because in high school and middle school I was always “the art kid”.I was scared that going to a school full of “art kids” would make me feel less special, less needed. 

I realized after coming here that I’m not just an “art kid”, I’m my own kind of artist. There’s only one person on the planet who can make the stuff I make, and that’s me. 

I think I might be getting a little off-topic, and this is running really long–!!

If you love art, you will find a way to make it work, anon-chan. Don’t give up just because you don’t feel up to snuff. After all, the only one who can make what you make, is you.

I'd also add that if people are wanting to avoid spoilers they should refrain from social media sites. Hell any site that might bring up something relevant to their interests. Tumblr, Deviantart, Facebook, Twitter, etc. You don't need to apologize Jan, these people should have known better, and if it was a spoiler for them at that point then it's their problem.

Different opinions, I guess.
