So, :iconmzzazn: posted something on facebook a while ago that I totally agree, actually, we talked about it lots of times, it's about the "copying artstyle shit":
I really don't like it when artists heavily reference or plain out copy others and open up commissions for a much cheaper price than the original artist. Studying someone's art and taking a couple of features may be fine, but if someone looks at an art piece and can say: "wow this looks oddly similar to so and so's drawing style" that means you should change it up a bit.
um yeah, that's not cool! This makes me unmotivated and depressed! I work hard to get better, and I always try new stuff, add details I didn't use to in my drawings etc... just to make it "different"... y'know, my style isn't the same than it was 3 months ago, and I totally know my commissions aren't the cheapest ones, and that my style isn't the most original one, but I ca

Manga character design classsssssNEWS ITEM: I have a character design class launching on Skillshare.com this month! I am often asked about running drawing workshops, and sometimes I'm able to do them, and sometimes I'm not (work! travel! stuff! fear of public speaking!). And I certainly can't run them in many places, because countries are big/teleporting not invented yet/really, 21st century, really, not even a flying car come on... LUCKILY THERE IS THE INTERNET. So I took the high points of the stuff I usually teach in my character drawing workshops and arranged them as video tutorials, for those interested!

First place goes to none other than :iconanonamos701: for their amazing summer artwork. http://fav.me/d6736we
Opinions: This work is literally the heart of what summer is all about. Late nights, friends, and just plain fun. The colouring style is very beautiful and really fits the summer feel. The style is just beautiful, it very much matches the original characters and you can just see their personalities gleaming.
A mention to :iconbabydoll-chan: for their amazing artwork http://fav.me/d675uhr
Opinions: The colouring style is just beautiful, you have really captured Konata very well.
A mention to :iconKasin99: for their beautifully detailed grayscale work http://fav.me/d65fku0
Opinions: It feels very emotional to me. Like a longing or a very strong friendship. The emotion is just amazing in this work.

anxietyFirst of all.. I didn't expect to gain so much appreciation over this piece.anxiety2 years ago in Personal More Like This
From all over people have expressed how they feel about it. People have gone into large detail on what they like about this.
I want to talk about anxiety in general and how the image came about.
3 years ago I was hit hard by the disorder. It was so bad I got suicidal at points. Not the attention starving kind. Seriously contemplating it. Life was hell.
To someone who hasn't experienced it. I'll try and describe it from my own experience and point of view.
At any random point in the day I can get these attacks. During these attacks I'm overwhelmed with the feeling of imminent death. No rational thinking can erase the thought or feeling. Imagine having a gun held to your head. And you know it's going to go off. You just don't know when. That's what happens when I experience an attack.
I get these daily.
I hide it well from people around me. By just walking away. Or keeping to myself a lot.
How did this affect my

But still, I am overwhelmed and intimidated once I am facing the vast 'whiteness' of a blank canvas.
Like Goliath to little David, the empty space challenges me and I recoil.
I think being a good painter is nothing other than to overcome this fear of blank canvas.
Just like Van Gogh said,
a good painter never fears the canvas;
The canvas fears him.
