I am back from Comic-Con!!! A giant thanks to dA for inviting me to present the panels
I know a lot of people couldn't make it simply because of the distance, cost, and the fact that tickets sold out a long time ago so here is all the slides that I presented at my panel
Up next! I will be making a 3D background tutorial expect to see it in the next few days or sooner~
It's exactly the same thing that I want to accomplish (though I have to practice a lot more in future). And you, already accoplished that. Probably not everyone gets inspired by you. But I am ^^
Still, the reality's very different...I think some people make it because they have visions and real talent (like you have) but there's also some people who become 'famous' all because of luck, and the people who actually have talent stay unknown. Really harsh to say it like that, but I've noticed a lot of this lately....
I've been on dA since I was 12 (now I'm turning 18) and I have still stayed unknown. Maybe because I lack of talent, or I haven't found the right concept yet. Sometimes I just feel like giving up....I would love to become a comic artist, but I feel like nowadays if you even want to get yourself a publisher, you have to be already known in the internet or something....: D
And Even if you don't, this was awesome to read and I am going to show her this tomorrow! = ) Thank u soooo much for sharing this.
Thanks for posting this
this is so inspiring..
i really want to become better at these stuffs and earn and something like that.. good for you who started at early age..
im just starting now learning stuffs and such.. well too old now i guess and nothins happening to me *kills self..
but after reading this.. maybe.. just maybe.. i can be like you and my fave artists here and out of DA.. thanks for the tutorials and WOWs words of wisdom thingies..
hope to see more of your works and stuffs ^^
Thanks for existing, you just gave me and a lot of people hopes to stay drawing and follow our dreams.
You are the most wonderfull artist and person I've ever seen....
*hopes on humanity back*
You are a great inspiration for me. You make me want to continue improve and move forward, even though it feels tough and hopeless sometimes.
i'm a fan. you're an inspiration for sure!
After reading all off your word, I got little more inspired to actually begin to draw again after 5, maybe 6 years with art block.
I have been a big fan of yours for ages, and I remember when you posted 1000 word. I can't relate to that story, but I cried like a river. Because you put so much feeling in all of your creations that touch people deep down.
Keep up the good work!
but then I started and I'm happy I read everything it's great to see, that even someone like you, who is now famouse and successfull , started like everyone on DA, as a 12-year-old jerk
your text cheers me on to practice more, so eventually I maybe will become a great artist, too
I have to say, thank you and I'm looking forward to see more of your great art :3
Your 16-years-old drawings are way better than mine ,I'm 28 ,and to be honest ,I only started drawing anime style about 5 or 6 years ago . When I see talented young artists like you ,I can't prevent myself from thinking , Am I too late to improve ?
I don't intend to use art as a profession ,I'm already a dentist ,I just want to learn how to draw the things like I see them in my head . I keep feel that my talent is failing me ,and start to question if I have wasted my life and maybe I should have practiced drawing more sooner .
Do you have any advice that can help me ?
This is so very inspiring.
I'm quite sure I'll have to reread it a few times to really take everything from it, but I'm almost in tears. Happy tears, though, the kind that make you want to just leap out into the world and experience all the joy it has to offer.
There is so much good advice here, and as someone who just started learning to draw I feel...empowered. Inspired, when I normally feel daunted by all the hard work I need to do to get to your level of success.
Thank you so much for putting up these slides (though I do wish it was a bit bigger so I could print it and put it on my wall), and I wish you all the best in a long and continually successful career as an artist.
And MOST of all, THANK YOU FOR NOT LISTENING TO YOUR PARENTS. Half the reason I'm only -starting- to draw at 19 is because I -did- listen to them, with nothing to show for it now but some relatively okay grades.
You're a role model and an inspiration. Never stop being you.
she tempts to be so negative about being a freelance and always falls into unnecessary conclusions! i am so gonna make her read this >I
