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.
but imagine a highschool au where derek’s a werewolf right and he keeps overhearing stiles waxing poetic bout him. like at first its stuff about derek’s hot bod and amazing eyes and chiseled jawline which is CREEPY and OFFENSIVE so derek glares a lot at stiles but then stiles starts gushing over derek’s brains and HE SCORED XX POINTS IN THE LAST GAME! HE WAS ON FIRE! and Derek preens. he admits it. he likes the praise~ (also he likes hearing stiles’ thoughts on stuff, it’s more entertaining than any other conversation in the cafeteria)
so we have days of stiles sighing and declaring he’s going to ask derek out soon, just you watch him scott. and derek is intrigued and interested enough to turn everyone else down and wait for stiles.
only it’s been 3 weeks and Stiles STILL hasn’t asked him out. now, derek’s not known for his patience. not at all. so he walks over to stiles’ table one day and asks, “You like Marvel right?”
stiles: “er. yeah?”
derek: “the new Marvel movie is coming out this week. we should go watch it. together. on a date.” (yes he’s nervous but that’s not why he’s being so short! he’s being short and CONCISE so as to avoid misunderstandings! derek’s watched enough romcom’s to know this!)
stiles: “you… want to go out on a date with me?”
derek: “yes. should i pick you up or what?”
stiles, after a pause: “only if you can get your sisters camaro.”
tl;dr: gimme an AU where derek’s a werewolf who has lunch outside every day and overhears Stiles’ talking about him and falls a little bit in love with him as a result.
The moment Stiles realizes there’s something wrong with Derek…

I have been interviewing women who work in Fantasy Illustration about their lives, art and careers. It’s a goldmine of knowledge and advice both for working artists and also for aspiring illustrators and artists.
There are currently 17 different interviews, so get reading and enjoy!
You can find all of the interviews here: http://kirileonard.com/tag/women-in-fantasy-illustration/
More good stuff to read from Kiri Leonard, and of course the interviewees.

Look at this post racial society we live in today
what do you mean this isn’t how the scene went
I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly. :(
Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy! You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through. You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way! Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!
Love your art, love yourself!
I was actually going to write a long post about this yesterday, but this lovely comic sums up all my points perfectly! Artists, please read this! It can be hard to break out of your bad “my art sucks” habits, but you gotta try. I used to do that ALL THE TIME, but a few years ago I made a conscious effort to change and I feel my art is much better for it. It’s not easy, it’ll take practice, but it’s worth it. Love your art!
