cpieng asked: Hi~i just found your tumblr , your works are so amazing!stunning, really inspire me a lot!!! i wanna know if you are stuck in drawing , i meaning can 't draw well in some period of time , What would you do to get through this ? Thank you for looking my message and forget my poor English. thank you^^
I can’t really give advice as it depends on each person and how you “live” art.
But for my case, my main “art block” comes from what I want to tell, if I have nothing to say then I can’t draw. It’s the hardest part of creativity.
Technic is just the showing off part, some people just like being good technician and I can completely understand. Just drawing some line can be fascinating.
Most of works (90%) I love from other illustrators are for technic (don’t see no harm). It’s different for comics, I can’t really judge the drawing as it lives with the story ,if the artist really have something to tell even the worst drawing will be the best and that’s why I love comics so much compare to any other art medium.
We should never be blocked on technic… We can work it out easily, with internet you have everything. it’s just a tool to help you describing what you have in mind. (of course it takes time but the practicing part is just repetition)
I don’t really care if it’s well drawn or not as long as I tell something, looking back at my stuff I see a lot of mistakes I could easily correct but I just let it go ‘cause I need to move forward.
The most important is to have something to tell, something you are ready to work very hard on.
I’m way too gossip with this “ask me anything” ahah… I’ll stop it for a while.
Thank you for sharing experience and opinion! it’s so surprised that i can get your reply one day after! and it make me start to consider the next stage of how i should work hard on. Thank you again^^
