F.A.Q.

F.A.Q.

Art Tools / Process What programs do you use? I use Paint Tool SAI to draw and color and Adobe Photoshop CS5.1 for touch-ups and finalization. Do you use custom brushes, or do you only use standard brushes? For coloring characters, I go with the standard brushes on both SAI and Photoshop. For backgrounds, I've started using more custom brushes. Foliage for PSD: Leaves and Veggie Brush Pack Foliage for SAI: [1] [2] (Note: You will need a Pixiv account to access these.)
You were expecting "tofuproductionz", but IT WAS ME, "TOFUProductionz"!

TOFU I HEARD FROM THE GRAPE VINE VERY RECENTLY (5 SECONDS AGO) THAT YOU ARE NOT GOING TO FINISH THAT DATING SIMS GAME ABOUT FRUITS/VEGETABLES. WELL, I KNEW THIS. I KNEW YOU WERE A QUITTER, THE MOMENT I MET YOU...AND LOOKED INTO YOUR ANIME EYES AND SAW A SIDE CHARACTER WHO WOULD NEVER ACCOMPLISH HIS/HER DREAMS. I KNEW.

I WANNA QUIT LIFE SO BAD BUT I CAN'T FIND THE EXIT BUTTON

Hey, Tofu. Need advice. I think I dug myself a hole. I need a friends at the local area. I started up a university comic club. It was okay at first. five people was sort of okay. Then it became 10 people. Even better! Different personalities. Now it's 25 people. Now I hate everybody, because if one person is negative, it affects everybody. These are artists. They're already cynical enough. Just listening to them talk is unnerving. some of them don't do their work on time, since we're working on an anthology comic series together. I have big dreams for submitting a comic newspaper around the university. I'm getting them to do that. I'm essentially being a publisher, editor, producer, etc. This is a lot of work. This is fine. They're having fun. They get free food and return for submitting their work to the university, so I can go and advertise and create a platform for them to have exposure. Super cool. I signed up for grants So we have funding to print books. It's good experience.

EXPERIENCE THAT THEY DON'T EVEN WANT TO HELP WITH??? these students talk about wanting to get jobs as graphic designers and they're unsure of their lives. Yet they're in a club that gives them so much experience, but they don't even help!

Every time I ask for help with anything, you don't have to have special experience to help me with something for example like figuring out what food the club should eat for the next week...Helping with the social media, helping me graphic design with ideas, etc I don't get much of a reply on Discord. Right now, they're busy complaining about how they don't like to be at home and they have anxiety, and life is sad, etc. Yeah, we all know life is sad, you've been saying that all year. There's stuff happening right in front of you. I feel like I'm handling an entire psychological associates mental office here and also a publishing company, because of these kids. ARTISTS ARE WHACK. COLLEGE ARTISTS ARE WHACK!

Do you have advice for how to get these kids to give back a little more and be more motivated, or should I just nuke this club? I probably should. I'm better at starting initiatives and then making sure everybody knows how it should work for a couple years, and then I leave. I really don't like to stay for long. That should probably be the plan. See? Just talking to you like this... I know what the plan is.

going to stay in the club for as long as I can for about one more year. Then I'm going to quit and go back to the hermit lifestyle.

Also, everybody is freaking out over this quarantine shenanigans and giving feedback about how to survive it. Site, us introverted kids... This is the time of our lives! I'm just trying to make sure some of the internships that I have for the summer before I start my doctorate actually exists, because the coronavirus is messing up some things. But I know I've saved up some money so that I don't necessarily have to work for this summer. But it's kind of depressing to not work over the summer and not have classes.

How are you doing over there, by the way, tofu?

Oh Jesus, that's a situation you got there lol. From my experience, the more people you have, the less likely people are to take initiative and do things themselves, so you or whoever will be in charge will literally have to assign them tasks. If they can't complete the tasks, why are they even in this club? And asking for help to an overall crowd will rarely get responses unless you have a few strong personality extroverted types that will take the lead by themselves. 

Do you have any kind of second-in-command type of person in your club? It's pretty overwhelming to oversee everything by yourself, so it might be easier if you have certain people oversee certain tasks and split up the work so someone would be in charge of food, someone else would be in charge of social media. If your goal is to have the club sustain itself after you're gone, you might want to start off small so that there's structure and that people know what and how to do things. Since you're overseeing everything, my guess is that everyone is probably thinking, "Oh Butts will handle everything! She can do anything!" so they'll slack off or lose motivation to contribute. 

I guess if there's nothing else to be done....lol nuke the club....

Hoping this quarantine thing blows over before the summer. I, unfortunately, do not know what quarantine feels like outside my regular lifestyle because my company believes they're an essential so we are still physically going in to work. Big Fool Emoji-03 (Creep Stare) [V2] I'm not sure how we're still open considering we are running out of supplies for everything, but gaming nerds need their gaming PCs.

Animal Crossing is fun though.
