Where do you get the inspiration/ideas for your self insert art?? Bc sometimes I'll be in the mood to draw self insert art, but then I'll get out my sketch book and have no idea what to draw.

sometimes i get ideas from text posts on tumblr (or just posts in general -sometimes scenes from a show or a movie, etc-)

but i think 99% of my ideas come from my brain because its just ALWAYS thinking of selfinsert shit tbh , or sometimes i get ideas from convos with friends !! but yeha i think blogs like “imagine your otp” can help a lot with ideas n stuff

Having “the girl who loves Dan and Phil” as your branding in school is such a weird experience. Like, yes, I do love them dearly, and yes, they do mean a lot to me, bUT KELLY CAN YOU NOT SHOW ME A SMUT DRAWING OF THEM IVE ALREADY SEEN WHILE IM TRYING TO EAT MY SANDWICH ???? I’m grateful people think of me when “Dan and Phil” is mentioned or whatever but sometimes it goes too far. Idk if anyone else has had a similar experience but please feel free to tell me about it lmao. 😂😂😂

What are the advantages/disadvantages of drawing digitally as opposed to on paper? Are there parts that are harder or easier?

well, I find that drawing digitally saves a lot of time and money, and it’s not messy at all. I like that you can zoom in and out and flip the picture as much as you need and adjust everything relatively painlessly until you’re satisfied - that’s making my life easier by a million. it’s also easier to try new techniques, naturally it’s not the same as traditional mediums, but I think it’s a good way to learn about colour spectrums and combinations, lighting/shadows, the basic things that you can apply later in traditional media as well

cons are that you always have to drag your tablet around unless you have specific tablets that allow you to draw on them whenever without being connected to the computer. also, it may be personal preference, but sometimes I just love the more hands-on approach and the mess with inks or paints and the smell of oils, so that’s something a tablet can’t really substitute. I think it’s important to try everything, I feel very clumsy when drawing on paper, but I think it’s just a matter of habit. also, it’s great to try different textures you can draw or paint on, you can imitate it digitally, but the process definitely has a different feel to it

also, imo print’s rarely beat hand-drawn pictures if you intend them as a gift :’) but that is also personal preference.

I feel like i haven’t really told you anything new :’D but I hope I could be helpful!

Cute past!Ardyn with his black chocobo *_*

It’s Christmas and you can hear Mariah Carey softly singing “All I want for Christmas is you”

And Happy Holidays! ♥

Some advice for aspiring animators from Rebecca Sugar:

1. Don’t shy away from finding inspiration for characters in yourself and the people you love.

“If there’s a character that you like in something else, they probably remind of you someone you know or yourself. So if you can zero in on that and then use that to make your own original character that has those qualities, but maybe even more specific to you, then do that.”

2. You can find inspiration through the things you enjoy, especially when you’re facing a creative block.

“I love to just put on music and draw, when I get stuck, sometimes I’ll do that. I like looking at art that’s not the medium of cartoons, and kind of absorbing that, and making cartoons while thinking of that.”

3. Even though it’s not the most exciting work, learn fundamentals and traditional drawing skills.

This is excellent advice Rebecca’s received from comic artists like Eric Larson, Mike Mignola, and Eric Powell.

4. And most importantly: Make. More. Stuff.

“And the ones that are working, you’ll quickly start to see like, This is what I want to do. You might not even know until you just do a lot of things, and then it will just come into focus.”


Took a break from comics to draw my favorite ladies!! I’m not in love with how this turned out, but they can’t all be winners!

I do like how their outfits came out though. I may do more with those sometime.

Recently I've been having confidence issue about my art. I don't want to draw because I think I can't do anything good. Do you have any tips for boosting confidence?

We all learn from 0 man! You think I was born with the ability to instantly draw amazing art? Wh-What do I look like, an Asian?

I didn’t know how to draw a DOG when I first started, I just knew I wanted to learn to draw. And non-stop practicing  looked like the right way to achieve that.

A lot of people tend to compare their art to someone who is “better” than them and get discouraged from it. I used to do the same and found it really hard sometimes to grab inspiration.

But I started using that as a form of inspiration, whenever you look at some outstanding artwork you gotta look at it and think “I’ll get there someday” “I CAN get there” and have that goal in your mind, and I can confirm you 100% that it is true, there are so many people and artists that I looked up to 5 years ago, and I loved their work, I still do. And nowadays people compare ME to them, which is absolutely insane. 

I know it sounds cliche but, don’t let anyone tell you what you can or can’t do. Because… there were SO many people telling me my art was cringe, that it waas bad, that I should quit, that I should do something else. But… whenever someone tells me that I can’t do something, that just gives me more reasons to prove them wrong. 

Everyone has the potential to be a great artist, be happy with yourself, everyone’s got their own unique and fantastic style. 

You just have to stay determined ♥

I think a lot about what catches heaven’s eye.
Sometimes it’s different than what catches ours. We naturally look to scale, shininess, numbers, accolades and visibility as significant. Nothing wrong with those.
But what draws heaven’s attention is wholeheartedness with whatever God has entrusted you with, whether big or small.
And I can’t think of a better thing than being called successful by heaven.

I am a nonbinary with dysphoria and trans!Robby AU really important for me. My binder is literally a corset that is hard to wear and my back really hurts in process, but sometimes it’s even worse when I am without it. So I decided to draw Robby in my binder, because I feel better when I can assosiate myself with him. I cryied a bit, but I think now, when I have this drawings, I feel a bit better. Hope Robby feels better too.

It is personal, but it is ok to reblog.

Please don’t tag this as something sexual and don’t delete description, thanks

Upd: Everyone so supportive and helpful, now I have money to buy normal binder ;_; Thank you for your kindness, you are amazing!!!!!!

Sometimes I think I am out of my league
And then sometimes I think I can dream
Sometimes I wish I could be the one fish
That you choose out of all in the sea

Sometime ago I saw an Iron Man stuffed toy is labeled as “Free Gift” to be given to customers with certain purchase in a chain store here, I can’t help but think Steve would definitely object this idea :D So this art is born haha.

And Happy Birthday to my tumblr account! Time flies and three years have passed, hope I can draw more Stony in the future! :D Thanks for all the support, reblogs and following, and you are always welcome to drop a comment/prompt/idea/just say hi to me anytime :D Love you all <3<3<3

OMG A PAINTING I’M ACTUALLY PROUD OF?! I said that i was worried about people not being able to tell it was a painting and someone mentioned, ‘sign it.’ duh. Jesus, I can be dumb sometimes.

ALSO: Thanks you guys for the comments and the reposts I love them all!

@xagrok​ asked: May I ask what you think of Jercy and, if you like it, whether you might draw them sometime? This isn’t meant to pressure, by the bye, so my apologies if it comes across as such, but I figured I should/ could ask. Thank you in advance, both for answering and for the art you’ve drawn. Your Percy is aesthetically very pleasing.

Show me your wild side, wolf boy.”

I’m neutral on Jercy. I mean, I always casually multi-ship (unless I find the ship SUPER OBJECTIONABLE) so Jercy is fine for me. Bi!Percy is one of my favorite HCs, and we know he has a thing for blondes, so yeah I’m pretty OK with Jercy.

and thanks, I find my Percy very aesthetically pleasing too. :D
