to always learn

My first drawing with the cintiq and it’s for a ten year old Neopets plot that wasn’t even that popular when it was going on. It’s also small but that’s because I forgot I was zoomed in the entire time LMAO

Even after ten years I still stand by my opinion that Scrap’s fucking adorable.

let's talk about something different and less controversial!!!! Maya's sure been wearing a lot of necklaces like the one she wore in Texas huh? The one that's like a cord and looped so it's a choker kinda and a pendant

I don’t think we should ever shy away or censor ourselves from discussing “controversial” topics, especially when a lot of these topics really shouldn’t be controversial in the first place.

If we don’t have discourse, how do we learn from mistakes and from each other in order to grow? I think civil discourse is always welcome, unfortunately tumblr seems to be filled with more angry “fuck you/fuck off/you piece of shit/you’ll never be forgiven even if you learn and apologize” extreme call out culture instead of civil discourse and productive debates. But the actual civil discourse I’ve engaged in on this site, I’ve always learned something from and appreciated.

It’s okay to be slow when you’re making art.

So I kind of wanted to make a post about this.

I know some of you look around, and you see all these artists making such beautiful art in time spans of like an hour or a few hours, and then you look at your work and you get so demoralized because you’re taking so long.

I’m here to tell you that that’s perfectly okay. You’re not other artists. You are you, and your work defines you. If you need to take 10 hours, or even days to complete your art piece, it is okay, because it’s yours. You’re doing your best to make your art what you want it to be, and just because you can’t do it in a few hours like other artists do, it doesn’t make the value of your work any less. In fact, your patience and perseverance is absolutely admirable.

Take your time. You’re using your hands to create something that you love. Don’t let the people around you that you see hinder that in any way. You will definitely get faster in time, but if you give up now, thinking that you’ll always be this slow when you make art, you’ll never reach that stage. This applies not only to art, but also to other skills that you’re trying to pick up.

So look at what you yourself are doing, instead of looking around at others. Don’t worry too much, and enjoy yourself in the process of creation and learning! :)

Bless Steve Rogers, who, in the midst of everyone throwing down over the very idea of the Accords, actually tries to read through them. Keep reading, buddy! You’re almost to the section on the secret supermax prison hidden underneath the ocean!

Listen to me, you’ve got this dark pit inside you. I know. Believe me, I know. But that doesn’t mean you have to fall into it. You don’t have to be a monster… It doesn’t matter what you are. It only matters what you do. It’s your choice.

Midnight (behind-the-scenes)

Lesley Sharp on David Tennant:
“When Sky is copying people’s speech patterns, we both had to learn the square root of pi to two or three dozen decimal places, but it was almost impossible to keep up with David.  His speech pattern, the rate at which he speaks, is phenomenally fast.  Really, really quick.  He learns pages and pages and pages.  And the rate at which he speaks is the rate at which he thinks.  Russell explained to me that David’s Doctor has a lot to say, because that’s David.  He’s so bright.  Isn’t that brilliant though?  The things that Russell thinks about and then re-interprets - I think they’re both amazing.”
