Hi! I don't know if you got the information about this or posted it online already and I missed it, but did you find out what time the reception for your art exhibition is going to be held? Sorry to be a bother, I just haven't been able to stop thinking about this art exhibition ever since you posted about it last week. May ninth cannot come soon enough! from ilovesmellymarkers
really??? omg i’m so excited ahhh
and i did find out! you’re not a bother, i should’ve posted the time as soon as i knew. the closing reception is from 7 to 9 on that Friday evening! i can’t wait to see who can make it <333
Oh how I wish I was in the Dallas are next week. You're art is incredible, I would love to see it in person some day. Hope you take lots of pictures for all of us who aren't fortunate enough to be there :) from Anonymous
of course i will!! and i wish you could come too! thank you so much uvu
otakumiki said: Hmmm I agree with this anon… how about tagging it “poc Harry”
i like that suggestion! thank you!
Hi. I know you're tagging all your POC Harry posts as racebending because of all the messages you got, but I just wanted to let you know that doing that is really problematic. It's racebending if a character who is specified to be white is portrayed as another, but that isn't the case here. It's cool if some readers imagine Harry as white, but that isn't stated anywhere in the books so he can be any race. Calling that racebending suggests that white is always the default. from Anonymous
hm ok i’m at a loss at what to do at this point…
i think i’m trying too hard to please everyone, and that’s just not possible.
people are being so kind to me lately omg it’s really uplifting thank you guys so much
OMG YOU'RE SO CUTE AND YOU JUST TREATS EVERYONE LIKE THEY'RE LIKE YOU AND YOU DONT GOT THAT "I'M BETTER THAN EVERYONE" THAT MOST OF THE TUMBLR ARTISTS HAVE AND YOU ARE SOOOO GOOD DOING WHAT YOU DO, I WANT TO SMOOCH YOU SO HARD <3 from Anonymous
How do you draw emotions and people interacting so well? Everything you make is just so pretty, do you look at references, and if not, do you have any tips on how to draw like that? from deenomilk
oh dude, thank you!! and i do use references!! i think it’s also because i’m a creep with how often i just watch people for reference. it’s good to see people in action, doing things that you want to draw.
and tips to draw like that… well, you know how ben franklin said that real insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results? well, you gotta practice constantly, but in a way that broadens your experience and understanding of art. draw all the time, but learn and improve while you do! you can take classes, or work with different mediums, or different subjects. just make sure you don’t get stagnant, and you’ll make art you’re proud of.
Well your ask blog is currently a poc Harry war zone but that's not why I came here now I feel like I should input but like tbh it's your world and you can portray him however you want! But now the reason I came here. I was gonna ask if you have any recommendations for art block? I know you've mentioned it in the past but I've had rly bad art block of late and I would really like to know things you'd suggest to kick the block from sassy-annabeth
haha yeaaah, it kinda took over this ask blog didn’t it
ok well, the solutions to a block are different for everyone, i’ve noticed. some people need to walk away from their art for a little while- to take a break creatively, so that their frustration doesn’t pour over into their work. i’ve done this before- when you get all cramped inside your own head, and nothing is coming out right. you need to remove yourself from that bad head space, and come back to it once you’ve chilled out. i would de-stress by leaving the studio to watch a movie or hang out with friends or re-read a favorite book.
and sometimes, you just need to take a big breath, let out the tension in your back and neck, and then switch it up creatively. if you usually work in digital media, try opening a sketchbook and sketch with pastels or ink. if you’re always using pencils, try making a collage. if you’re always drawing people in head shots, switch to experimenting with color in backgrounds with photoshop. sometimes you need a push in another direction, something new to challenge you.
and always, ALWAYS use references!!! they are your best friend!!!!
hope this helps? i dunno, art blocks suck, but they pass. as long as you know yourself and your own limits, you can usually find the right way to push past those limits.
