Doodles For Donations

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 14, 2014, 11:26 AM
I'll be doing a Doodles for Donations stream this Friday.  Basically, you come in, pay what you want, and I draw it for you!  It should be a lot of fun.  
Noodle and I have kinda fallen on hard times, and I'm doing this for grocery money and to try to get us a little out of debt.  Anything you can do helps, and you'll be getting something for it!

Stay tuned, I'll have a stream link and other info right before the stream.  :)

  • Mood: Artistic
  • Listening to: Day of the Triffids audiobook

  • Eating: Ramen!
  • Drinking: Gatorade

Hey Aphex, I noticed your Ask Stalkerloo tumblr is back up and running.^^ Good on ya! I'm looking forward to seeing more of Stalkerloo's story.:3

Speaking of which, I was wondering if I could ask you for something. I don't know if you remember my Stalkerloo fan picture, but that's just a sample of what I want to contribute to the Stalkerloo universe. I have an idea of a spinoff comic story that I want to make, and I would like your approval and maybe even your support if I ever get around to doing it.

I still have a LOT of other pony story ideas I need to get around to, so getting to this might take some time, like a few years or so. Regardless, I wanted to know if you would be interested to be my consultant since its YOUR universe, and if you are I'd be happy to share the story concept through the Notes with you.

Sure, though Skype would likely work as well, if you'd like to hit me up there.  I'll shoot you my skype information via note if you don't have it yet.  :)

that's very kind of you.:) I know I don't have you on skype. Mind you I'm rather shy with voice chat, but with text chat I'm good.^^

Thanks, though I'd rather if you didn't use my profile to promote someone else's work.  Next time, use a note.

I didn't know I wasn't watching you! I have no manners! Kill me. D:

But now I am! I do come by your page quite often, though!

I put you on my featured artists thing on my page, too. Your art never ceases to surprise me. Your style changes greatly. I love seeing the versatility you have. It's amazing! Continue sharing your beautiful works with us forever!

Have an awesome day~ :D

Thanks!  I really have a bad habit of not putting a lot of the stuff I'm doing up as of late...  That and vanishing off the face of the earth due to work.  XP

Good sir.  

Some time ago -- and by some, I mean a rather LONG time ago -- I faved your 'cookie thief' painting.  I loved the art, but didn't +Watch you at the time for whatever reason.  

Recently, however, I've really gotten deep into drawing and artistic pursuits.  Yet, for me, every day and every drawing is a challenge.  Sometimes, when I think I see a pattern of 'bad art' that I'm making, I get really down on myself and frustrated, considering giving up entirely from time to time.  

Tonight, I stumbled upon your tumblr post about your colorblindness from back in July.  

I'm sure you get this a lot.  But you're an inspiration.  To think that you were able to pull off the lighting and colors so well in that painting from so long ago, and to consider what you had to overcome to be able to do that is really, really motivating and exciting for me.  

People can say "it's all about hard work and dedication" all they want, but you epitomize it.  And you've shown me that -- just like you -- I am able to do anything I set my mind to artistically.  It's just a matter of putting in the work to get there.  

Thank you for being such an amazing person, and thank you for putting in the hard work to show us that we can, too.

Hehe, thank you so much!  This means a lot, it really, really does.
I'm glad I could have inspired you to produce art.  Just remember that when you think your work sucks, when you think it's not good enough or that you're backsliding, you're in the right mindset.  Getting better at art isn't a comfortable feeling - it's hard.  Just remember that you're not alone in that sentiment, every single artist struggles with it.
All you can do is keep working, keep studying, and eventually you'll break through and get a lot better.  Art progression comes in levels, with ceilings.   Some people never pass certain ceilings, and it's usually because they don't want to put in the effort.  But if you really want it, you can do anything you want.  x3
