self-entitled artist rant #3047402: the ‘is this anime’ comments never stop, they just evolve.
the thing is, there is actually nothing wrong with any of the three. the outside people labelling your art anime, Disney, or ‘comic book-y’ are the only reason why it’s a shame. embrace any similarity, even if it’s unintended
everyone—- even people who I have seen that dabble in realism— get these comments. but it isnt going to stop. Hell, only a year ago I was in a class with other aspiring artists, and every crit one girl would rotate between ‘is that based on Adventure time? Is he from Scott Pilgrim?’ but only later did I realize she was trying to find a commonality between what I did and her interests.
if people are assholes about it, don’t care what an asshole thinks. if it’s sincere from someone who just doesn’t know the faux pas, they just find something that they like in your work and people TRY to find words to describe things— it’s one of the biggest issues with labelling.
tl;dr- Your art is unique, but sometimes others’ ability to describe it isn’t.
Unless you become a bigshot like disney or something, your things WILL get compared to other things and that’s not a bad thing, just a lack of descriptive words is all. You’re not gonna have your own legacy right away so learning to embrace the comparisons is a viable skill!
The stop-motion films of Laika just seem to be getting better and better. First there was quirky, captivating Coraline. Then the spooky, silly ParaNorman. Now Laika’s dropped a tantalizing trailer for their next pic, The Boxtrolls. I’m really digging the film’s grimy, grotesque, European arthouse aesthetic. It reminds me of a stop-motion City of Lost Children!
The Boxtrolls hits U.S. theaters 9/26.
Seizure First Aid.
Learn it. Share it. Know it. Use it.
100% correct medical information on tumblr for once; also consider calling 911 if you don’t know how often the person has seizures and ESPECIALLY if the seizure has lasted 5 minutes or more (which is why the watch is critical)
as a person who has suffered multiple seizures, and will most likely and unfortunately have more, this is a major need on my blog. everyone needs to know these facts!
learning languages is fun until i gotta do it for a grade
Learning new things in general is fun until I have to do it for a grade
Get out of my face if you don’t think dolphin villagers would be the cutest shit ever

Sorry it has been quiet over here, my internet computer wasn’t serving that purpose very well lately (viruses, yay, our antivirus was completely worthless! Worthless!) and it only got even worse today, so now I’m using this other computer with the keyboard that’s hurting my fingers to type on!
