WELL. I’m home… but landlord is already passed out, and he’s the one with show on his computer sooooo I can’t really watch it unless he wakes up. But I don’t want to wake him up just to watch dumb show because he works all the time and he needs his rest.
;w; Guess I’ll just eat some watermelon and finish the painting I started this morning.
"STAND" THIS AND "STAND" THAT. LISTEN BOY WHEN I WAS A KID WE HAD TO FIGHT AZTEC GODS WITH OUR BARE HANDS AND WE WERE THANKFUL FOR IT!
"Yeah but we didn’t get our moms to fight our Aztec vampire stripper battles for us now didn’t we”
Starting season 9 of supernatural in like two hours. Plus walking home time since I had to give stepdad’s car back. (;A;) I WILL EVENTUALLY BE HOME AND I WILL HAVE FUN WHEN I GET THERE.
This is the most accurate portrayal of blind box collecting ever.
I have a friend from back in middle school who is trying to learn how to “paint digitally.” She posted her first work on another social media site, and while she is one of the best artists I know, she’s never worked in this medium before and the painting came out sorta… not as spectacular as her other works.
Which is okay! We all learn and need feedback to improve our skill! The thing is, she posted the piece with “feedback please!” in the comment area, so of course several of her friends gave her very polite concrit, seeing as she has a lot of friends who know how to do really great concrit.
So the artist… commented as well, saying that the person who said "it looks lovely, just like all your work does!" gets her, and she basically called out a person who offered actual comments on her technique in the tags.
And that just… that’s not how feedback works. I mean if I’d gotten crit comments on one of my pieces without asking, I’d be a little disheartened… but you can’t ASK FOR FEEDBACK and then get mad when someone gives you their honest opinion.
I was going to leave a little comment saying that I’m excited she’s getting into digital work, but now I… don’t really want to, because I was going to offer a bit of advice on her choice of brushes and the way the character’s body doesn’t look right because incorrect foreshortening technique due to how uncomfortable she is with the line work. Not anything bad, just… not worth it.
