this week’s fashion was inspired by uwabaki (上履き - japanese slippers)
I haven’t done color theory art in a while! Royal was collecting dust until I remembered my strong need for adorable uwabaki.. they really have the power to boost your cuteness strength. the whole look couldn’t be complete without ramen accessories! and please don’t destroy me on my poorly written kanji i tried my best…

I'm so glad you're still putting art out cuz I could do with some more inspiration in my life! c:"

Anonymous asked - "what is the backstory on Meng?"

I mostly make fanart, so I’m always delighted when people ask about the few OCs and stories that i do have! If you’ll allow me to take some time on this, I think I’d like to make a more in-depth post about this when I have the time to do so!

Here’s the short version, though! Meng Francisco is a scrappy little outcast of a kid. she’s really prickly and stubborn, but is actually quite sensitive and protective of her friends. She’s really good at Patintero (a filipino spin on tag)… one of the best in her town, really! Her legs are insanely fast, and she’s got a shonen-manga-esque will to keep on going and achieve her goals.

She has two close friends named Shifty Alvarez and Nicay Hernandez, who also play patintero with her and they all complement each others’ strengths and weaknesses. Shifty is… well, shifty and Nicay has insane reach and solid strategy.

The name of the story they’re from is called The Ballad of Meng Francisco, and it’s kind of a coming of age story with a sports-manga flavor!

but really, more on that later, in a more detailed post!

Gomenasai, my name is Ken-Sama.I’m a 27 year old American Otaku (Anime fan for you gaijins). I draw Anime and Manga on my tablet, and spend my days perfecting my art and playing superior Japanese games. (Disgaea, Final Fantasy, Persona series)I train with my Katana every day, this superior weapon can cut clean through steel because it is folded over a thousand times, and is vastly superior to any other weapon on earth. I earned my sword license two years ago, and I have been getting better every day.I speak Japanese fluently, both Kanji and the Osaka dialect, and I write fluently as well. I know everything about Japanese history and their bushido code, which I follow 100%When I get my Japanese visa, I am moving to Tokyo to attend a prestigious High School to learn more about their magnificent culture. I hope I can become an animator for Studio Ghibli or a game designer!I own several kimonos, which I wear around town. I want to get used to wearing them before I move to Japan, so I can fit in easier. I bow to my elders and seniors and speak Japanese as often as I can, but rarely does anyone manage to respond.Wish me luck in Japan!

I earned my gun license two years ago, and I have been getting better every day.  I speak English fluently, both the Midwestern and the East Coast accents, and I write fluently as well. I know everything about American history and their Constitution, which I follow 100%  When I get my American visa, I am moving to New York to attend a prestigious High School to learn more about their magnificent culture.

Some harsh but very very true words

When people let me review their portfolios (on career day or open days at my game design school) I explicitly ban them from commenting during the review… …because otherwise they will follow the impulse to downplay everything I see in an attempt at being humble."this is an old image…"
"I’m not happy with that one…""this is just a sketch…"
"I did this really quickly…""there is better stuff on later pages…"It’s totally understandable to have those impulses. The quality of art is not empirical data and therefore impossible to measure. Good art, bad art, it all comes down to standards. And you don’t want to come off as naive or self-absorbed.But just don’t do it. Don’t talk yourself down in front of others. In the best case you have someone supportive who now thinks “damn, this person needs to be prepped up all the time. Do I really want to work with somebody like that” or in worst case “now that you say it, yeah, this is kinda lame/rushed/unfinished/lazy, go away.”You can only submit what you have. If that is not enough, then it’s not enough. Your attitude will not change that. But if it is enough, you can do serious harm by not being confident of who you are now.This means appreciating what you are able to do right now and have a clear vision of what you want to learn, be confident that you will learn it in time. Be proud.

This is really important.  Eliminate this urge.  Eliminate it professionally, when having contact with people in a position to buy your work.  Eliminate it socially, when you just share your work for fun.  Destroy this urge as thoroughly as you possibly can.
Because when you have done that, you’ll find that you feel at least 25% less shitty about your own work.  You lose the urge to do it.  You stop reinforcing those negative thoughts, and they retreat.  They may never go away completely (although they might!) but this is good practice for ignoring those thoughts flat-out.
Don’t shit-talk yourself.  Even if you can’t be SO PROUD, don’t ever try to influence anyone’s opinion toward your work in the negative.
Try to love your work.  Try to see what you learned from each piece, even if it’s a failure.  If you feel that you learned nothing, appreciate the fact that just spending time on it is honing your skills and giving you valuable practice.
i used to be super not-confident in my own work.  When I stopped pointing out the flaws in my own stuff, I felt better about it almost immediately.

As a lifelong self deprecator, I’m trying this and really enjoying it so far!
