OHHHH GAWSSSHHH THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU!! Wowowow you are awesome thankyou so much for your questions. I’m sorry about the late-ish reply! But, here we go!
6. tag your favorite artists/inspirations!
OH…OH GAWSH… WOWWWW….WOWOWOWOOWOWOW Like theres just an infinite list but like…AHHHhhHH I’m probably gonna forget some tooooo oh gawsshhh! Okay. Okay. Lets do this.
First off, my sister, @stephratte , who on Tumblr is better known as @inevitably-johnlocked . Not only is she really really talented (PLEASE check out her art!), but she was the one who basically inspired me to start doing art in the first place, and keep at it. Without her, I really don’t think I would have gone so far with it - I mean, I think I still would have drawn, but I wouldn’t have pursued it as far as I have. She inspired me to create characters, to create stories, to just create period - she taught me the foundations that I still use today. She’s always supported me with my art no matter what.
@linane-art was one of the first Hobbit artists I’ve encountered on Tumblr, and like…Just. Just wow. Linane’s stuff is just amazing, LIKE I HONESTLY CAN’T EVEN DESCRIBE and has inspired me to create for the fandom and to continue to create for the fandom. LIKE AM I EVEN WORTHY???? *CRIES*
@shabby-blog OKAY SO LIKE. YOU ARE AWESOME?? Often, when I’m having a “bad art day” (which usually constitutes: “I suck what is the purpose I’m never drawing again IMMA THROW OUT EVERYTHING AND POUT FOR THE REST OF ETERNITY”) , you seriously pick me up and just keep me afloat and like, I JUST. *Anyway I’M ACTUALLY KINDA STARTING TO CRY RIGHT NOW* But seriously, you mean a lot to me, and your art is so amazing and unique and colourful and wonderful I JUST. I was instantly drawn to it the moment I saw it. I’m so glad our paths met.
@cabravitis WOW LIKE. WHERE DO I START? Again, one of the first artists I’ve met on Tumblr, and honestly your stuff is really an inspiration to me. I just admire your stuff A LOT, like. Everything you do is magic, I can’t even find the words to describe your amazingness. I just want to hug you TBH sajflsjakfssaaf!! Your stuff always without fail makes me smile!
@alcram-dreamers I JUST. I AM JUST. I NEED TO…JUST…LIKE I’M ACTUALLY CRYING NOW UGHAGHHFSDFJAL. I just love you so much. You have no idea. You are just a fantastic, wonderful person and honestly a light in my life.
@indigirl94 *SLAMS FIST* LISTEN. I’ve literally known INDY FOR…EV…ER. Indy has pushed me and has supported me for YEARS and I can’t even find the words right now, honestly you are just really, really, really talented and I can’t believe all these years have gone by. It’s magical TBH.
@apollos-celticswan - I don’t think we’ve ever talked but like. I just really love your stuff, and I’m so happy whenever I see it on my dash :D
@shinigami714 - I love seeing your stuff on my dash, you are fantastic and never stop doing what you do!
@ the anon who comments and sends me messages : I both know and don’t know who you are (if that makes sense?), I don’t even know if you have a Tumblr. Maybe you aren’t even the same person. But honestly, whoever you/you all are, it really really means a lot to me. Like, seriously, thank you so much for just being you and being awesome. You mean the world to me. I just hope you see this.
I also NEED to do a shoutout to @chelidona as well . Like… You’ve seriously supported my art since I’ve met you and constantly inspire me to keep going. Sometimes I just think there’s no point in doing some of the artwork I do and just want to give up, but your words are always in my head pushing me forward and never allowing me to give up. Thank you so much for being awesome. You are an amazing writer (a brilliant art form all on it’s own) and I JUST. I’M NOT WORTHY OF YOUR AWESOMESPARKLES.
Also, @fizzy-custard you really, really, really push me forward as well. I think we both see a lot of each other in each other, and I know that you’re always there, in some way shape or form supporting me and pushing me forward. LET ME HOLD YOU.
Oh…oh gawsh I’m probably missing so many people right now. Like I’m seriously probably missing so many people. I’M PROBABLY MISSING A ZILLION PEOPLE I JUST. So, if I’m missing someone, I am so, so, so, SO SORRY. So, this goes out to EVERYONE:
Thankyou so much for all your support, for all your likes and your reblogs, and just your comments and they just…they really keep me going. I’m often quite critical of my art, I’m always thinking how I never get anything done, and how this or that. I always felt like no one cares what I do, and I really don’t share my artwork with anyone outside of the internet. So it really means a lot to me know that my art makes someone out there happy. You are ALL inspirations to me.
OH GOSH I PROBABLY FORGOT SO MANY PEOPLE I’M CRYING NOW I’M JUST. IM SO SORRYYYYYYY!!!
14. what was something that you used to draw a lot that you don’t draw as much anymore?
Hmmmm…. I can’t really pinpoint it really. But I’d probably have to say - comics. I used to do a LOT of comics. Like, comic strips, with my own characters. I’ve always wanted to be a cartoonist, to be honest, and when I was in my teens I used to do a lot of comics. But then eventually I just…It’s not so much that I’ve stopped, I just…have become a lot more pickier. Like I used to do comic strips, just a few panels with a punchline at the end. But now I just want to do these long, epic, continual story things. I’d like to some comic stuff again. I actually had an idea for a strip series. I’m not sure if I’ll do it. All the stuff I want to do…versus…the stuff I actually do…*sigh*.
AhhhHh THANKYOU SO MUCH FOR THIS! You rock!
