It’s important to be confident as an artist. SOLAR-CiTRUS shares what she has learned along the way to becoming more confident

solar-citrus:

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!

Might have reblogged this already but never hurts to do it again.

Late night sketching. Had this in mind for a while.
Something silly with Zone. AND it turned out better then expected. So all’s good!

heyo!
don’t worry, your english turned out fine, dude.

as a foreword of warning,
it is best that you don’t use this post as a standalone tutorial, 
instead, try to use it as a study aid to help you make sense of real-life references.
(same applies for any decent “art tutorial” out there, really. :p)

I GODDAMN NEED THIS MORE THEN THE GAME

I wonder if the last pic is supposed to be a female Link or a very early design of a companion. Wither way, I cannot wait for all the artwork to come with the Prima Guide.

I did a redraw thingy…

Doesn’t look bad.

Lady Luck toys with me.

So… Today, I had the confirmation that Lady Luck is just fucking with me all the time.

Here’s the story:

My Wii U has a weird problem where it keeps freezing, but only when playing OFF TV and something else is on the TV monitor.

I can play 7-8 hours on the TV no problem but on OFF TV, it doesn’t give me more then 1-2 hours. It’s quite annoying when the best feature of the console is broken…

So I called Nintendo Support earlier and I talked about it with a dude there. I give him the info he asks, no biggy! Tried a few things, didn’t seem to find a solution. Off to repair!

The guy checks my serial number and starts saying “Oh no. Oh no. Oh no.” in a panicked voice. He just goes “Sir, your warranty expired… yesterday!” and keeps breathing heavily.

Well, shit! Here goes 150$! That’s my luck!

But the poor guy decides to go check with another department and when he comes back he start tapping on his keyboard and tells me “We discussed and they said I could remove the repair cost of 175$ so you only pay for the shipping of 11$.”

We finish, I thank him and I just stay motionless on my couch, repeating “That’s my luck.”

It’s almost surreal.

Japan is teasing us… This is an official artwork from Nintendo for the Japanese Hanabi Festival.
They know… They know we want it and they kept reminding us of it and the fact that a remake would be balls awesome!

Give it to us already!

Okay, I noticed a little something at the end of the latest trailers of HW that I could have noticed before.

Here:

Now look carefully… isn’t there something odd with those DLC rewards?

You got a [3 DLC], another right below it so we can assume those are Link and Zelda costumes…

I was RIGHT on the money!

For once in my life, I was fucking on it!

Little detail people might have missed?

You got a [3 DLC], another right below it so we can assume those are Link and Zelda costumes coming with this pre-order.

Look again, right under it. It’s the same words except with a 2. Consider the fact that all the costumes so far come from OoT, TP and SS Zeldas… You seeing where I’m going? Maybe not, it’s probably fucking vague!

Only one other character appeared in two of those three games and it’s Ganondorf, completing the whole Courage DLC, Wisdom DLC and now Power DLC (if it’s what written there, of course!) Triforce kind of deal.

Could this mean today’s direct reveals Ganondorf as playable? And maybe more baddies?




Also, can someone confirm what is written cause I might be babbling here, waving my arms like an idiot and maybe getting everyone hyped for nothing… or just late as fuck too!
