Journal
How I learn to draw.
First off, let me say this: I'm a very raw, struggling artist.
Believe it or not, whenever I draw a new piece, my brain hurts from the amount of thinking and worrying that I go through. What's happening in the picture? What's a nice composition? What colors can I use? Why don't my colors look pretty? Is this quality enough to satisfy myself? How do I even know if it's good enough?
Everyday I restart this cycle of suffering and learning. What I go through a lot of the time is unpleasant surprises (like when halfway through I suddenly realize I screwed up something), and then the disappointment sinks in. Sometimes when I try to draw a complex pose and fail, I break out in sweat from some mix of panic and doubt. Rarely does any painting or drawing go without some form of frustration of disappointment.
There are artists out there who've been in the trade long enough to approach works with full confidence in themselves. I'm not one of them, I'm just a newbie who's just started drawin

I'd like to inform you that you'll find more frequent uploads on my instagram: instagram.com/julien12826/

Me and Egakuma have agreed to draw daily if the opportunity allows it. These drawings are meant to stay active in between larger uploads. As those drawings will be smaller, quicker, and most likely lesser quality, I won't be uploading them to deviantart. At least not individually. Maybe as a monthly batch with highlights if I feel like it. Instead, I will be regularly uploading those to Instagram.

The name's Julien Sontohartono.

Pretty anime girls and random doodles. More on my instagram.

I'm a casual amateur artist aiming to get slightly better at drawing anime styled illustrations. I don't aim to be the best, not even for a career. I just want to improve my skills so I can eventually draw anything I have in mind.

Most people know me from my (and Grendo's) MLP Google Chrome Themes, but I've stopped creating those and focus solely on my anime style drawings from now on. You can still find the themes here: chrome.google.com/webstore/sea…

Feel free to comment and rate my work. I almost always reply to comments, most likely with some delay, but I do try to interact with the people who appreciate what I do. And as always, thanks everyone for the continued support.

Please consider following me on instagram:

I just looked up what Flutterbat was. Although I really like her looks, I'm sorry to say that I've stopped creating themes a long time ago.
