great artist can come from anywhere

In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little, yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. But there are times when a critic truly risks something, and that is in the discovery and defense of the new. The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations. The new needs friends. Last night, I experienced something new: an extraordinary meal from a singularly unexpected source. To say that both the meal and its maker have challenged my preconceptions about fine cooking is a gross understatement. They have rocked me to my core. In the past, I have made no secret of my disdain for Chef Gusteau’s famous motto, “Anyone can cook.” But I realize, only now do I truly understand what he meant. Not everyone can become a great artist; but a great artist can come from anywhere. It is difficult to imagine more humble origins than those of the genius now cooking at Gusteau’s, who is, in this critic’s opinion, nothing less than the finest chef in France. I will be returning to Gusteau’s soon, hungry for more.

efficientlyHow To Make Comics

Step 1: Looking at comics is very important if you want to make them. You need to get a feel of what comics really are.

Step 2: You need to find your own art style. A lot of people just take other people’s art styles and claim it as their own. Yes, some art styles might look alike but the point is doing it yourself, not stealing someone else work. 

Step 3: Inspiration is important as well if you want to make comics. To make comics, you must have energy to wanting to do it. Looking at other people’s work and looking at what cool or nice things the get in return is a great way to inspired. Artist to get inspiration from: @theodd1sout, @its-a-small-world-comics, @untitled-webcomic, @that1badartist etc.

Step 4: Material doesn’t really matter when making comics. Paper and pen is fine or maybe you have a tablet or stylus just sitting there. Remember two things: Comics were first done on paper and if you buy expense equipment that doesn’t mean you will get popular. Use what you have right now and maybe later get what you need to make comics more efficiently. Examples of artist who use paper and pen who are popular: @yellowsplodge1

Step 5: Ideas can come from anywhere if you have an open mind. I personally felt this was easy, coming up with ideas from my environment. Anything funny you see in real life can be an idea or an overused joke online can be an idea. Maybe you reading how to make comics is an idea. Also, if you have a bad memory,like me, just have a notebook that you fill your ideas and write them down when you get a new one. 

Step 6: Comics can be as many panels as you want. That being said, don’t restrict yourself from making your own comics. They are some thing you might want to look out for:

1. The letters in your comic needs to be readable. No one will look at them if they can’t read the letter you put, make them big enough and ask a friend to read it and if they could, you passed that test.

2. Try to make your comic as funny as possible. Everyone likes a good laugh. Try to visualize how your audience would react to your comic. 

Step 7: Motivation is important when your starting out as a comic creator. You have to pay attention to what you are making and not what everyone else is. I had this problem where I would see people getting popular really fast and I was sitting here with no followers. I felt like quitting but here I am making this guide for anyone who wants to make comics. 

Step 8: Just do it! You really have nothing to lose. Get a chance and reach out to other artist and maybe work with some. That’s how you get started in making your own comics.

Hey, Artists! I’m willing to do a trade! Art for a fic between 2000 - 8000 words!

Are you an artist and a fanfic reader? Have you ever yearned to see a fic circulating around an idea you have, but its never come? Do you just like reading? Do you like reading fanfics for the following things?? Danny Phantom, Blue Exorcist, Skyrim, SVTFOE, Gravity Falls, Harry Potter, Yuki Yuna is a Hero, and/or Suisei no Gargantia?

THEN IVE GOT GREAT NEW FOR YOU

I’ve been writing for a couple years now and I can do write you something from anywhere between 2000 to 8000 words for the above…in exchange for a rather specific art piece. It’s nothing explicit or anything, I just want someone to draw my own character for me because I’m incapable of drawing anything digitally (I can only draw stuff with pencil and paper; I cri evry tiem)

If you’re unsure about whether or not you’d like something written from me, you can ask for a sample of my writing.

If you don’t see one of your favorite shows here but you’re still interested in a trade, tell me which show/book/movie/game/ETC you have in mind and I’ll see if I know it!

There are very few things I won’t write about, I am very open-minded. However, I will NOT write about Incest, Pedophillia, and/or extreme BDMS. Otherwise, most other things are fair game.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to send me a message! Joke messages will be responded to with scathing sarcasm. Thank you!
