What a depressing chapter, its so freaking sad, probably the sadest thing i had seen in anime lately, so sad, that Shingeki feels like a light comedy, because i was shocked, you arent prepared for hunter x hunter to be that cruel, some how in shingeki you are mentally prepared. Dont let the cartoony style fools you, this is an anime you need to check out.
The story, starts with some regular otakus in akihabara, one of them gets so desesperate with his life, that wasnt to commit suicide in his birthday day, by jumping from the rooft of a top building. His life its sad, having a lame job, everything goes just wrong......
.....But all changes when she sees a pretty rich girl in the subway.
The Train man journey begings.
Great touchy moments, good romance, otaku jokes, you will see a lot of your friends in it. Sometimes you will say that guy acts like me.
Do you know if there is a way to have the same pressure feel to the pen, tried many options , moving treshold, the middle dot and a lot, but i cant mimic intuos 3 pressure.
The levels of pressure on intuos 5 2048 are too much for me, i simply cannot glaze anymore.
Wish that the pen to have more extra steps in the begging on the stroke, more harder then softer, somehow the pressure of the pen jumps the first steps soooo fast, that i can glaze gently anymore, all i get its this horrible blobs .
Lately its like a new virus, spreading, this so called contest, were people pick the winning one but they dont give you nothing in return, but they make money. Correct me if im wrong, because probably i miss it but whats the prize in last deviant art event.
Correcty me if im wrong, people are going to send designs and designs that took months or years in preparations from schools, wasting money in materials, electricity, tablets, tears and blood, and in the end they wont receive anything just a palm in your shoulder saying good job.
Can you pay your bills with your tiny name at the end on credits? Forget about the publicity crappy excuse. People will get paid for this but the winner and contestants they wont.
Its a shame that deviant art did this, in case if i miss read and there are really a prize.
I choosen this as an example, Speculation work its spreading like a virus, i receive tons of notes like this each day.
WHAT IS SPECULATION WORK?
New artists should be aware of this, promises of publicity wont spread your name, you wont get job like this. But if its a donation of a piece for a good cause thats different.
This video will explain better than my crappy english.
Errors are part of the road embrace them, learn from them be stronger, dont skip them. To learn how to ride a bike learn to fall first. So you can land on your feet, then try hard and faster, with no more fear to fall.
I dont believe in mentors, not all mentors are qualified to teach, they can misguide you sometimes. If you have a mentor it can turn you into his clone, i had seen tons of great artists that their technique wasnt good but they were more unique and after having mentor, their style lose uniqueness. Because be honest, we copy what we like, and usually we ask for mentors of people that style will enjoy the most.
For example you go and learn to play guitar with Slash, you will master the guitar at rock, but you if you wanna learn country, Slash wont teach you that, your hands will have the skills but you will have to start country from zero, and country its your style.
Sooner or later the technique of the mentor will consume you. Because errors are the things that makes you unique, nothing wrong with having errors, a mentor will make you erase the errors he doesnt have, but maybe those errors are the ones you need to be away from same style. He is walking getting this errors and learning from them and he will move them to a side so you can pass easily, but you wont learn like he is.
Its hard to explain, thats why i never got the need to find a mentor, i dont walk in the shadow of another artist. The faster you start exploring your style, the better.
I like to see the sun with my own eyes.
And my eyes will burn.
And i will get lost.
Months and months of not learning anything.
A lot of cries in the dark, hitting myself to the wall trying to figure out how they pull it off.
Weeks without drawing, the muse had gone, im alone, lost in a blank sheet.
Paper is my cage.
Sometimes other artist will stop their road and kick you in the legs , your arms, they will spit on you, so you cant continue your journey, the road seems longer. Sometimes another artist will stop look at you give you a hand to raise up and then, he will continue walking, the amount of steps depends on you, no other artist will give you a pigie ride.
Sometimes will be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Most of the times i just want to leave the pen on the desk and quit everything, after all whats the point?
But sometimes you receive a big push from family, friends, other artists tragedies, and you dohave to draw for them not for yourself.
If i was a magician and someone wants to tell me how he does his trick i will probably look away, because i believe in magic and i dont want it to lose it.
My road was never a road of roses, im proud of each error i have, errors are the ones that makes me who i am, errors are my armor, only with errors i can learn.
Im the kind of guy that will trip on the same stone over and over again.
Having someone showing me the way how to draw, been able to skip all the errors, at the end of the drawing i will feel victorious? How will i feel victorious if i never walked a road of thorns.
My feet are bleeding while my eyes are looking at the horizont... my goal.
Bloody errors keeps you on ground. Errors were meant to be avoided but errors were meant to make you stronger.
The more mistakes you do in art the better you will be, you can only learn by falling.
The errors feels like mathematical problems you need to solve by your own. Study books, study life models, get a teacher, read tutorials figure out by yourself what its wrong. And the answer will taste better than any drug in the world.
Having someone to take you by your hand and make you skip all this and go directly to your goal feels hollow to me.
Art in my case its 95% pain and hard work and 5% talent.
But what do i know, i just can talk by the way i had been working all this years, this is my way of the painter. This is all subjective, im not qualified to talk about this intense and great topic.
Anyone should find their own road of roses or thorns.
In dark and stormy days, enjoy the rain, just dont wait for the sun to come, enjoy the rain, you will feel better if the sun comes out or he doesnt.
Dont feel bad if you dont have a mentor, read, work, seach, google everything. Trust and believe in yourself, art road its not easy.
Be proud of your mistakes, learn from them, DONT justify them but love them, so next time you can have new ones, and if you are lucky some of them will dissapear.
If you can spot your errors, you are grounded to the floor.
Errors are part of art, we are not machines.
Ps. Sometime you need someone to remind you, we all need courage, most of the days i wish people can tell me this "hang in there". We all need a palm in our backs.
After all the newest anime i had seen, found ones that are sooo great, and different from clitche guy in a school with girls with magical powers. Two of them looks like FLCL my favorite anime from all time.
Namiuchigiwa no Muromi-san
A story about a mermaid, its soo funny and bizarre as FLCL, even the main character its called Takkun. There were a lot of times i laughed hard at the computer screen, luckily i wasnt drinking water at the moment, love animations with unique style of movement. Sadly its 12 minutes long, but the jokes are so damn good, Love when stuff looks hand drawn, i mean expressive and deformed and not as realistic as a 3d people.
Shingeki no Kyojin
The king of the anime season by sooo far, i had seen the trailer before but was in japanesse to i didnt understood the title, but people told me it was out, thank you so much. Story its so original and dramatic about Titans. Its probably the most horrible fear i had, zombies that could eat you in one bite, now i know how the KFC chikens feels about. Music its intense in thise anime, the ending of this anime was so intense, and drums make it look even cooler, ive felt sooo bad. Emotions i didnt had in a long time. If you like Gantz, you are going to love this one.
Little Witch Academia
Impressive ova, have flcl flavor all over it, solid and lovely animation, one of the coolest witches i had seen in a while since Tweeny Witches, if you havent seen that anime you should check for it too. The character i loved the most was Sucy, she reminds me a lot of Haruka. I can see that sucy its heavily influenced by the chick that could see dead entities for some reason. A magical academi and impressive magic.
Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san Z
I had seen this series of this characters, was so funny, i still got nightmares from the song Macdonald had a farm eeeaaahh eaaahh ohhhhh. Short episodes but really fun as the past series. Its about demons and humans.
Devil Survivor 2 The Animation
Im not going to watch this one because i had seen tons of animes like this one, people told me its based on a videogame, plot its interesting, different from the rest of this season, they have a cute moe style, for some reason even the monsters are cute in this piece, compared to the titans of other anime i mention this looks like puppies, but animation its solid, has an interesting plot, characters are likable as hell. And it has a solid beginning. This is an anime for new commers into anime and fan of the series, if you are a veteran otaku like me, you will feel a dejavu and lose interest, but im pretty sure people with fresh eyes will love this series. I dont want to spoil the plot.
Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge
A bit fan service, a really sexualized anime were hair means virginity, and the way she rubs the scissors, we all know what that means. But story seems interesting, about items used in crimes and a girl were hair cant be cut, the plot looks really interesting and the type of bizarre i like, characters are drawn cute, but plot seems interesting enough to catch my eye. Hope it doesnt dissapoint me.
Suisei no Gargantia
My eyes bleeds of sooo much coolness in this one, watching the mecha formations blow my mind, story and music so dramatic, didnt saw something like this since Macross.
Im not a professional reviewer, i dont know that much in anime, so this is just the opinion of animes i found interesting and to spread the voice so people can watch them. This is just anime of my taste, everyone has their own taste, so if you are liking the new animes coming out, thats awesome, sometimes i wish i could erase all the animes i had seen so i can start from fresh, i just skip animes that feels like dejavu, and watch the ones that gets my interest.
If you watched this series did you enjoy them too?
Today decided to plug my computer in another energy socket, this socket of electricity was grounded, turned on my computer and surprised that my tablet worked perfectly.
It was all cause by dirty electricity, now my strokes are fluid, im so happy right now, tried tons of drivers, formats, changed computer, ram, graphic cards, usb position on the computer, everything, and i mean everything.
In photoshop this is hard to notice because they use round brushes, but in painter the brush scratchboard tool uses tiny lines, each one for each level of pressure, so you can notice it right away by looking at the picture, so make sure your computer its plugged to a nice grounded electricity and not on weird tons of plugs to reach your pc.
Bad electricy creates an electromagnetic field that affects the tablet performance.
I'm glad that you share your insight with us, for I've learned much from you since I began admiring your art. I hope you can continue to do the work you do and continue to give the world the gifts you create.
