just fucking draw. don’t compare yourself to other people, don’t stop because you drew a lot last tuesday and you haven’t visibly improved. it takes time, effort, and a lot of perseverance. besides, no matter how “bad” you think you are, there’s still gonna be someone who thinks the stuff you produce is the best goddamn thing they’ve ever seen in their entire life. the artist you were five years ago would have their mind fucking blown by the artist you are today. so just draw a fuckton, because every new thing you draw is one drawing better than you were before.

I really needed this post

Trying my hand at shoujo always ended in a hilarious disaster.

Jumping on this post as well, because it is important to remember this at times.

13 year old me would be stoked to see where I am now. It’s really good to look back sometimes and appreciate how far you’ve come. And then imagine how much further you can go when you keep drawing.

Even though I want to laugh my head off at my old stuff… it really is important to look at how far you’ve come in time.
And I think it’s not only good for yourself but for young artists / beginners as well, to see how other artists started out. So they see that no one is a great artist right off the bat.

I remember that it took me several hours to get what I got in 2007 while I literally just speedpainted the one on the right in maybe 16-30 minutes (I forgot to time). But yes, ALWAYS REMEMBER, YOU GET BETTER. 

unicef:

168 children have died and over 1,100 have been seriously injured, maimed and even terribly burned. No child should have to suffer the terrifying impact of such violence. We are urging all sides to stop this violence for the sake of the children, who are suffering the worst.

Gaza, 17 July 2014 (by Saaed Rafiq Al Madhoun, CARE International Programme Officer)

My boy is only three years old. He feels stressed and depressed and last night after hearing the explosions he said to my wife, “I feel that I will die”.

He is only three-years old. It makes us so sad. It was such a terrible surprise to hear him say this, we feel very bad.

He says he is feeling sick, at the noise of the explosions. He is crying at night and cannot sleep, so my wife and I try to massage him to calm him down.

My wife is very afraid for the children. She is able to feed my five-month old baby but it is stressful.

We feel that there is no safe place – any movement outside and you could be targeted. If I go to my brother’s house, are we any safer there?

The water gets cut off when there is no electricity. I’m trying to keep reserves of water – we need to be able to sterilise things for the baby when we can.

I left the home to do some shopping during the ceasefire, to get some basics for my kids. We have just a short period of time before it starts again. It was very crowded in the streets because of the limited time. The prices were normal but there was not very much available.

I also went to check on the CARE office to see that it was OK. I want to go back to work to help support all of the vulnerable people. I am more than happy to do this but it is difficult because we cannot move without being targeted.

If this situation continues like now it will be a real crisis. We don’t know when it will finish. I am really hoping for a long-term ceasefire and that it will calm down.

It’s hard for my family, for my friends and colleagues, for all Gazans to live in this crisis. We just hope it will end soon. In six years there have been three wars.

It’s difficult for all of us, but especially the children.

I ask the world, and all of the humanitarian community, to try to make a ceasefire that will last for years not hours. We ask that the violence stops. We cannot continue living in this situation, but we also cannot leave Gaza.

We ask the world to make it stop and do their best for the people of Gaza. It is enough now.

HEARTBREAKING PHOTOGRAPHS REVEALS THE REAL COST OF VIOLENCE IN GAZA

More than 160 civilians, including more than 40 children, have been killed in Gaza since July 7, when Israel launched its anti-Hamas military operation. “According to preliminary information, 77 [percent] of Palestinian fatalities so far have been civilians, raising concerns about respect for international humanitarian law,” the UN wrote in a July 16 report.
