MOTHERS DON’T CLEAN UP AFTER YOUR SONS AND TEACH YOUR DAUGHTERS TO CLEAN UP AFTER THEIR FATHERS AND BROTHERS. TEACH THEM TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN MESSES. DON’T LET THEM GET ACCUSTOMED TO A WOMAN DOING EVERYTHING FOR THEM AND DON’T LET YOUR DAUGHTER GET ACCUSTOMED TO DOING EVERYTHING FOR MALES.
i wish you could have said this to my mom 10 years ago shiiit.
the worst feeling about trying to draw is being a mediocre artist. You realize you’re not terrible and family and friends who have can’t draw at all tell you all the time how amazing you are, but you, as the artist, have seen what amazing really is and you realize that it isn’t you.
I actually don’t mind being a mediocre artist. No, really I don’t. I don’t draw as well as most of my friends, and they’re they reason I began to draw in the first place. I wanted to have their skill and the ability to draw whatever I wanted with the flawlessness that they possess. It didn’t take me long to realize that drawing is fucking hard and that patience and practice are the most important tools you’ll need.
So, yeah. I’m mediocre. That’s really nothing for me to whine or cry about! I can see many improvements in my drawings now when I compare them to what I did 3 years ago. Sure, I don’t always have eyes just right and my hands and feet aren’t all that great, but I’m making progress and that’s what matters to me. I don’t draw because I’m looking to rack up coolness points for doodling a character from a fandom or an original character of my own, I do it for myself, and I think that’s what people tend to forget.
Draw for yourself, not for the approval of others. I shouldn’t have to prove myself to anyone because I don’t have time for that bullshit.
Nothing says “I’m salty and clearly unprepared for being this wrong” than saying ” its just my opinion”
