My least favorite part of summer ending is how everybody asks “so what did you do this summer?” and I have to feel my soul dying a little more each time I’m forced to remember how I wasted three months doing absolutely nothing

raikonai  asked:

Hello Mr. Ottley, when you were starting out drawing how did you deal with feeling like your skills have plateaued and how did you force yourself to get past it? Also do you plan on attending any cons in Canada or near the border?

I dealt with it like any normal artist. Extreme self loathing. I never thought I was good enough. That with low confidence made it easy for me to give up once rejection letters started rolling in from my submissions to a few companies. I just went with the idea that I wasn’t good enough, therefore why try? So I stayed away from the idea of working in comics for years. Once I finally joined comic message boards I would post art and the comments of those members really helped my confidence. So then I started to draw more. And study and practice all the time. So I would say having a healthy idea of where you are at artistically is key to growth. I’m still never satisfied with my work, but it’s healthy. I don’t self loathe. I don’t compare myself to others. I get inspired from other great artists instead of thinking I’m not as good as them. And that helps me grow. Well, that and constantly drawing and looking back to see what I can improve on. I’m always looking for what needs to get better.
And yes, I will be at Fan Expo Canada next week!

1. What is you middle name? 23. Have you ever met any celebrities? 61. Do you sing to yourself? 67. Can you name all 50 states of America? 96. How did you get your name? 98. Do you have any scars?

1. What is your middle name?
Magdalena. I also have another one that’s made up of my dad’s name + the Finnish word for daughter.

23. Have you ever met any celebrities?
I’ve met loads of people who work with classical music (composers, opera singers and such). I’ve also met Nightwish, Apocalyptica, Ville Valo, members of The 69 Eyes and some other rock/metal bands as well as other celebrities like Alexander Rybak and NHL players. (Helsinki is so small and you see them just on a night out. I used to go to school next to where Jussi69 lived and saw him literally all the time.) I’ve also met the former president twice. I’m sure I’m forgetting some but those are the ones that come to mind.

61. Do you sing to yourself?
All the time.

67. Can you name all 50 states of America?
Funnily enough, yes. Me and friend saw the episode of Friends where Ross tries to name them all and being kids who imitated the show we wanted to give it a go.

96. How did you get your name?
My parents are classical music nerds and Anna Magdalena Bach was a musician and the wife of the composer Johann Sebastian Bach. The other middle name is a tradition my parents started, all my siblings have a similar name (dad’s name + the word daughter/son).

98. Do you have any scars?
Just the one on my nose but luckily it’s almost faded now!

platonic-rabbit  asked:

5, 6, 7, 12, 16?

Just did 5 and 6!

  • 7. How many unfinished projects do you have at this point? Planning to finish any of them soon? ~twitch~ Why ya gotta call me out like this? I have… ~counts on fingers~ probably 8-10 unfinished projects right now, and if we’re being realistic, I’ll be lucky to finish three of them. Most of them got started and abandoned for more interesting things, but there are a couple I am planning on picking back up.

  • 12. On the contrary; What parts of writing a story do you hate? Any time the love interests are apart is very difficult for me to write. It flows so much better when they’re together and interacting. Ironically, I’m writing a story now where the hero won’t meet his love interest until the very end, because apparently I like to punish myself.

  • 16. Have you ever received hate mail because of one of your stories? I have not! I’ve gotten gentle nudges and begs to finish a story or series, but never hate mail, because my readers are fantab.
