                                  • Link

                                    well the good thing is that you'll always have more :3

                                    • Link

                                      If only I could relive my childhood! :3

                                      • Link

                                        lol right XD couldnt we all?
                                        i solve that problem by acting like a child (to an extent XD hahaha)
                                        nah, i just get really nostalgic, play old games, watch cartoons.. that sort of thing

                                        • Link

                                          Yeah! XD
                                          Even I still play my old games, still watch 90's cartoons, and nostalgic about old things. Like remember those square scooters back from Elementary school?! :D

                                          • Link

                                            YEAH DUDE! and you had to do that awkward little scooter-butt-shuffle across the gym floors XD

                                            • Link

                                              It was so fun!! I remember we had to do that butt-shuffle thing, and our teacher even made an obstacle course for us to scoot around! I will never forget that!

                                              Or remember the giant "parachute" where the kids would grab the outer ring and you would have to run across to the other side before it comes down on you?!

                                              • Link

                                                OH MY GOD YES! the parachute was the best ;u; especially when the whole class would flip it up, and one person at a time would run under it while the class tried to trap them inside XD.. or even when we'd all flip it up and quickly sit inside on the edges and wait for it to deflate on us XD

                                                • Link

                                                  I miss the good old days! It was always fun playing with those! And even more nostalgic for you, remember School House Rock and The Magic School Bus AND Bill Nye The Science Guy!? :D

                                                  • Link

                                                    BILL NYE- THE SCIENCE GUY~
                                                    BILL! BILL! BILL! BILL! BILL! BILL!
                                                    lol but of course! :'D oh man, so good

                                                    • Link

                                                      Hell yeah! <3 What about Schoolastic books? :3

                                                      • Link

                                                        awwe yeah man. i remember our Schoolastic book fairs.. i always tried to get everything that had ANYTHING to do with art or animals XD (furry even as a kid haha!)

                                                        • Link

                                                          What kind of animal books were these? Usually I got like Pokemon, video game books, or something with Legos or something funny! ^^

  • Link

    oh yeah XD me too!
    and i got a TON of small things about horses, or little how-to-draw things..
    and if i could get my hands on them, zoo-books XD i've long since given
    them away to the kids down the street

    • Link

      I wish I got a few how to draw books so I could be an artist. Oh man, I remember Zoo-books! Aw dang, do you miss them since you given them away? ;_;

      • Link

        i do ;n; the zoo books at least.. and a couple of the drawing books.. they were super rad..
        but hey, there are other ways you can learn to art :) it's all about the practice!

        • Link

          Even another friend has told me to practice to get better at art. I just dont really know where to begin on drawing bodies and fantasy stuff. ^^;

          • Link

            start with tutorials :) i'm sure i can find you some, and even drop in at the beginning of an artist's livestream. simply watching how they draw things out tends to help wrap your mind around the beginning concepts

            • Link

              Also learning shapes is a start too, correct? :3

              • Link

                yes :) it's part of the foundation of art

                • Link

                  I think maybe this weekend or next week I should try to practice it again! :3

                  • Link

                    you should! i'd like to see the results :) and if you ever need opinions dont be afraid to ask :3

                    • Link

                      Thank you, whocrysforthestars! Also in your opinion, is it easier doing traditional or digital? :3

                      • Link

                        well, they are two totally different animals (no pun intended) both have a range of styles and techniques that you can use, but traditional is a wonderful way to start (especially if you're drawing from life) as opposed to digital, it's a lot easier to get a feel for textures of objects and pressure of line weight (you can do this in digital as well, but it takes a while to learn the tricks) i would suggest traditional though, not because it's "easier", but because grasping the concepts of art through a physical medium is a gateway to other forms of art.

                        • Link

                          Alright, I will keep trying to get better at traditional. Just sometimes it feels like it is hopeless and I never get better. :c

                          • Link

                            i know hun :< it can be hard, but you can only get better if you try :) and dont worry, i'm down on myself about my art too sometimes :I there's always room for improvement

                            • Link

                              But your art is so awesome, whocrysforthestars! :O

                              • Link

                                awwe ;u; well thank you~

                                i donno, i think it's an artist thing :I no one likes their own work

                                • Link

                                  You're welcome! :3

                                  It it just when I see my art, I know I dunno how to get better and draw fantasy stuff (things in my head). But when I see other people's work, it is amazing! It makes me wonder how did they build and skyrocket into that lovely talent. ;_;

                                  • Link

                                    i feel you.
                                    i stand by the "practice" thing though :)
                                    are you taking any college classes? maybe take
                                    up a drawing class :) if you get a good teacher,
                                    you'll be able to loosen up and just go with it,
                                    and when you run into a bump they'll help you
                                    get past it :3

                                    • Link

                                      Well I did attend college, though they didn't really focus on the drawing aspect but more so in just creating nice detailed images, which was easy for me because it was things around me that I drew. I wish to draw fantasy stuff, and they didn't really teach that. If I could, I wish I had a teacher now. ^^

                                      • Link

                                        ahh i feel ya. meh, i donno :) i'd still say the best inspiration and learning tool can just simply be watching drawing streams and talking to the artists :)

                                        • Link

                                          I think I need to do that more often and watch MORE artists and see how they get inspired to start off on their art. :3

                                          • Link

                                            it's a good start :)

                                              Do you ever watch artists stream? :3

                                              • Link
