I said it. There’s way too many ask blogs that get tons of attention out of minimal and quite frankly, boring work. Whether this is just simply sketching out answers, or just sticking to a format that’s ran it’s course, these blogs ought to try doing something different, be more creative, or just showcase their work in a more fun way.
But they don’t. Way too many blogs are crazy overrated, and get way too many notes and followers by a simple format that’s too easy to follow. A lot of the blogs that do try interesting attempts to capture their audience, hardly do compared to another blog that doesn’t have to try so hard just because their art is cuter, or more simple.
This over-saturates the entire ask blog community, and leaves promising and potentially popular blogs in the dust. You have an audience, so what’s stopping you from trying to experiment with your work and see what happens? Clearly no one cares, or even understands some of the work and organization that goes into some of the work, and that makes me really bitter about the entire community in general.
Stop being boring. Show us something and cool, and get even more attention out of it. Isn’t that what you blogs want?

Instead of thinking about how they’re way better than me and comparing my art and beating up on myself, Instead I try to see what I can learn from them and how I can improve. I always try to keep in mind the amount of time and practice it takes, and eventually I’ll get my art to their level, and beyond.
It’s not good to beat up on yourself, it is good to keep a positive outlook.
A thousand times this! Sometimes you won’t feel so well about your art and that’s okay, but it’s very important to stay positive!
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 will always reblog this
Zecora or Luna!
Oooh, I’m gonna try my hand at Discord and Zecora >w< I’ve been wanting to draw Zecora for ages too!
IF YOU ARE STREAMING, DON’T USE PROCASTER.
DON’T. USE. PROCASTER.
Livestream procaster consumes large amounts of cpu for nothing. No joke, nothing. As a result your stream can become laggy and sometimes it can damage your hardware as your PC has to push itself to keep what your streaming functioning as well as possible.
"But if we can’t use procaster what can we use insteaaaaad?"
Simple. There’s two programs, both that are free, that you can use that uses very little CPU and has more options than procaster. These programs are called Xsplit and OBS. To keep your head in one piece, I’m going to go over how to stream on Livestream with Xsplit.
Under the cut of course.
I switched to OBS after procaster caused bluescreens CONSTANTLY
Haven’t had any issues since
