Before you say something, let me explain you a thing
there’s a serious lack of hanji, levi, mike and erwin being just dorks. loling at life and being silly. so i just kinda came up with this, pointless, youtube au.
Hanji and Levi are flatmates, living in Lyon and they’re just random vlogers. Mike and Erwin run gaming channels e and in the end, they all 4 become good friends.

Hemingway makes your writing bold and clear.
Basically the coolest little tool to have as a writer.
This is awesome!!!
Remember that time someone asked that artist how they got so good?
They worked at it.
They studied, and practiced, and made a lot of crap with the few good pieces.
This guy spent 9 years going from novice to master, and that’s how it goes.
Hey, next time you tell yourself that you’ll never be good at art because you aren’t “talented”, watch this video. Feel better because you can, in fact, learn. Then, feel terrified like the rest of us do, because yes, it really is that much work.
This is awesome. There are lots of things to learn from this video, but one of the best things is that persistence and dedication are the most important tools for any artist. You cannot fail unless you give up!
it’s been a rough few years.
I only just found out from the Shonen Sunday Japanese website, but Hiromu Arakawa safely gave birth to her third child about a month ago. Congratulations, sensei! I’m very happy for you and I hope your child grows up well!

"The anime’s second season has started, the film is complete, and it’s become a novel… thanks to you, this year has also had a busy start.
To my participants and readers, I hope you’ll support me this coming year, too. (I’m late.)
In my own life, my third child was born a few days ago so my home has become busy, too.
By the way, ‘Pacific Rim’ has been my antenatal training.”
I think it’s mostly about having the right attitude! Unfortunately there isn’t really a point where you “start seeing results”, it’s a depressingly gradual process and you don’t really notice until you look back at stuff you drew two years ago and go “oh I guess I am improving”.
From my own experience and what other artists have said, there will pretty much never be a point where you stop learning, growing, being critical of yourself, and wanting to improve. It can be really frustrating, but that’s also one of the cool things about being an artist! You’re always getting better!
My advice to anyone who’s serious about being an artist: get a grasp on foundation skills like anatomy and perspective (yes, you will need them, even if you think you won’t). Learn to handle criticism, and when and where to apply it. If you can’t draw something well, don’t avoid drawing it, but draw it over and over again until you can. Accept that some people just won’t like your art, and that’s okay. Don’t worry about developing a style; focus on experimenting and trying different things and let your style evolve naturally instead of trying to force it.
Don’t look at other people’s art and go “everyone else is so much better than me, I’ll never be that good, why do I bother” — look at it and think “wow, they must have worked so hard to be able to do cool stuff like that, if I work hard too then I’ll get there someday”.
The most important thing, hands down, is to just keep working at it and not give up because you think you’re not getting anywhere. You are, even if it doesn’t feel like it. Believe in yourself, and in the people who believe in you!
