Andrew Loomis’ “Drawing the Head and Hands” is a good book to study. Copy it and just keep practicing. Those fundamentals will help you in the long run even if you continue to pursue anime instead. It’s never easy straying out of your comfort zone but at least putting forth the effort may inspire you in other ways or you may end up enjoying new ways of drawing.

At least you can say you tried c:

I look N O T H I N G like this. (There were no curly haired options) so I just made myself into the weird psycho yandere anime girl I would be.

Hahaha as someone whose lived in a few of those I agree.

Gotta add though Southwest Florida, specifically Fort Myers/Naples, is Boomer central, or Land o the Boomers. Some may even call it Boomers R Us. Don’t even try to go down there if you’re under the age of 65 because you will ruffle up some feathers and cause old ladies to clutch at their pearls.

I think the strangest part of it was that we all regularly read each other’s work for our LARP group and they were eager to read my actual novel. So being told nothing was extremely disheartening and I’ve kinda been hesitant to share work like that since. That’s my own issue though >_>;

To address Lirvilas I personally don’t feel comfortable sharing 200 pages of draft work to strangers on the internet in comparison to my webcomic. I’d like to build some sort of relationship. Those petty critiques I’ve received in the past jaded me :’D

I know I should probably go into the critique forums here again since it’s been years, but like I said, at this point I’d rather be critiqued as a whole than being close to the end and not giving my reader the full experience. I did have one friend read my last two comic scripts after she binged my webcomic and she felt as if it DID need to be read in its entirety as well.

I dunno. Maybe I should hire an editor haha.

I kinda do. I always wonder if I’m doing a decent job. I’m a little indifferent with critiques for my webcomic since I wrote it over five years ago at this point and don’t have plans to change it, (I also feel like it needs to be read as a whole before getting a final critique) but with how often I try to get IRL friends to read it and how quickly it’s dimissed for other webcomics it makes me wonder if it’s even decent at all. I’d at least like to hear if it wasn’t read due to a lack of time or lack of interest.

I once had three friends read an old novel draft I wrote and one ate it up like crazy while the other two didn’t tell me they even finished it until I asked months later. They said they had finished it sooner than that and that it was “okay.” No further details no nothing. I knew they weren’t trying to hurt my feelings but damn just say it sucks or it’s not your taste or SOMETHING other than “it’s okay.” That’s a worse response to me than getting a scathing critique.

But I’ve also had complete strangers rip my shit apart for no reason and for reasons that sounded extremely petty. I take those with a grain of salt after seeing whatever work it was they produced. I don’t think I’ve had a decent/honest critique in awhile now that I think about it.

Huh...


I left dA in 2012 (been on there since 03) and never tried the contests, but i would never assume the people that won them don’t deserve it. A solid career in art isn’t exactly ‘solid’ and very few pro artists in various fields are fortunate enough to have steady income. Maybe they gotta sell that third cintiq to make rent. Who knows? You don’t.

Point is, as much as it does suck to see these artists win repeatedly, ya gotta get good. There’s a bunch of shit that gets attention that infuriates me and all I can do is put my head down and work on my own shit to make it even better. If anything let it light a fire under your ass.


You can’t hate the player. Hate the game.

Because I draw for nearly 12 hours a day now, I actually go to bed with this wrist guard.

I don’t like to draw with it but if I know I’m not going to do anything for a moment (like watch TV) I’ll throw it on for relief. For its cost I find it pretty effective and it’s definitely helped. I also do a lot of yoga so I try to incorporate wrist exercises during that too!

Here’s a pretty good video!

Hope your wrist feels better!

There’s a lot of Stress™️ and slight political undertones in this so...spoiled for that.



screams endlessly into the abyss

@lutztoon I’m on board with the no baby train however my hormones are betraying me so the sight of a chubby baby in some beetlejuiced striped onesie makes me want to punch my uterus. That’s probably what might happen more than anything else. Overcome any urges when they strike xD

If they don’t like Satan it’s not worth your time. Uphold your devious standards. Least if they throw the Bible at you you’ll know you dodged a bullet. (And hopefully the Bible)

This entire thing

I used Le Petit Monstre as a portfolio example a few years back and I had a decently solid concept but none of the characters took off outside of little comics here and there and in a ridiculous L.A.R.P. group. Daisy both in character and design holds a special place in my heart and I would like to use her in something. Just don’t know what yet.

The Letter M:Apparently it started because there were too many women writing for Marvel (in the opinions of these guys) and they thought it was sissifying the place.


Omg is THIS the one that started because a bunch of female Marvel writers took a selfie together? Again more stuff I vaguely remember from twitter.

I also agreed that the best Batgirl run was Gail’s and while I loved the art of Babs Tarr’s run and her redesign I hated the writing with a passion. It was too teeny bopper for me.

That aside, apparently Alan Moore wrote a letter to comicgate in his final comic.

I went back on twitter to check out some tags and yeah it’s still the same garbage. Sorry these people don’t sound nice or redeemable in their attempts at less forced diversity. Which is a shame because I do agree on that! There have been some comics where I’m like who the hell wrote this crap in their attempt to check off diversity points? But it’s still a new thing and there’s gonna be A LOT of garbage before we get some gems.

I find it so strange.

And then they’ll have like ONE black writer or Latino writer and be like DIS IS HOW ITS DONE while producing garbage content and shitty art. I watched them attempt to harass Gail Simone on twitter and she just roasts them. Kinda entertaining.

I feel like these are the kinds of people who take it, as I like to say, “to the titty” too much (crass but whatever). Not every comic belongs to you. There are stories and things that exist for other people so...why bitch? Why do they gotta put so much energy into hating shit instead of just moving on? Yeah I’m pissed at what the writers did to Harley quinn but you don’t see me starting HarleyGate or whatever the hell.

You always have a right to your opinion MK, and what I appreciate is your willingness to reflect and even ask us as a community if you were in the wrong. I think above all else that speaks volumes of your character, regardless of mistakes that may have been made in trying to convey how you feel.

The topic of race has always been touchy, and it has definitely escalated since 2013. The internet is also not the best of places to engage in these topics either as shit can devolve VERY quickly. Sometimes some opinions are best shared among friends in private IRL or otherwise than posted on tumblr.

Again, you live how you want, but that’s my advice. I truly don’t think you meant ill, I just don’t think the feelings were conveyed as well as you hoped.

@Sharose: Honestly when I went to get my portfolio reviewed back in 2016 one of the things I was told while making it was to make sure that the reader can clearly know what’s going on and read the emotion of a scene without the use of dialogue. So while I drew my six pages I made that the main point and have tried to continue that even into my own personal webcomic.

I read Framed Ink to help out a lot and I also doodled a lot of silent panels to see what I could convey without words. It takes time and a lot of studies but you can definitely get there. Capturing subtle expressions have been my current goal because those are the things that can pack a punch without words effectively IMO.

I’ve always been glad to draw super expressive characters and detailed as designs for personal illustration work. I dunno I feel like I’ve managed to depict a personality of a character pretty clearly through my own obsessive quirks and love of acting.

While I’m still trying to figure out if I have anything unique stylistically, I know in sequential form I can carry things even without dialogue because of how expressive my characters are, and I think that’s pretty cool *pats self on back*

And although I only use it for the webcomic I do love the style I chose for it. It ain’t for everyone but it’s very fitting for my personality.
