So it finally happened~!
I have over 500 followers, and it’s about time I gave you all a little something in return!! And voilá! An art giveaway!
Here are the rules:
- Giveaway ends August 1st, Western European Time Zone.
- There will be 4 winners in total! They’ll be chosen with a random number generator, and I’ll message you if you’ve won, so please keep your ask box open!
- If i don’t hear back from the winners within 24 hours of being contacted, I’ll pick new ones.
- This is only open to my followers. New followers are welcome, but don’t hop in just for the giveaway and leave as soon as it’s done. That’s not nice.
- No giveaway blogs!! I’ll be checking!
- You can reblog as many times as you like, but only 1 will give you an entry. One like will give you an extra chance to win :D
As for the prizes, I will draw your OCs or fanart. I only ask that you send me good references (and a short description about them) if you want me to draw your OCs, or if I’m not familiar with the character :D First and second prizes are coloured, third and fourth are greyscale.
And I think that’s it! Best of luck and thank you all for sticking around~!
I LÓBE YOU ALL!
Giveaway ends this friday!!
I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly. :(
Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy! You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through. You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way! Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!
Love your art, love yourself!
That is going to look incredible! It looks pretty awesome now!
Oh, thank you so much!! I sure hope so!! :D For now it’s just the markings in cut out paper and taped to the sweater XD The fabric’s gonna be a lot trickier to apply, but I know it’ll be worth it!! Thanks again!! :D

Sooo I’ve been working on this not so little project on my free time (hence the lack of art, sorry about that!)
There is no turning back.
like tbh i feel like my problem with the “dark and gritty!!” trend in modern stories is this
there’s this idea in our culture that cynicism is realistic? that only children believe in happy endings, that people are ultimately selfish and greedy and seeing with clear eyes means seeing the world as an awful place
that idealism is— easy, i guess. butterflies and sunshine and love are easy things to have in your head.
but i’ve known since i was fifteen that idealism— faith in humanity— optimism— is the most difficult thing in the entire world.
i constantly struggle to have faith in humanity, because it’s really, really easy to lose it. it’s easy to look at the news and go “what were you expecting? of course humans behave this way.” it’s easy to see the world and go “ugh, there’s no hope there.” and the years when i believed that were easy. miserable— but easy.
it is hard work to see the good in people. it is hard work to hope. it is hard work to keep faith and love and joy and appreciation for beauty in my daily life.
and when moviemakers and tv producers and writers go “omg!!! all characters are selfish and act poorly and don’t love each other, nothing ever happens that is happy or good, that’s so much more realistic, that’s so much more adult”
no, it’s not
it’s the most childish thing i can imagine.
My favorite quote from anything ever.
i need more kung fu panda in my life
