  • Yesterday I started my last internship before graduation. I've been so busy! As a truck driver I don't even drive long distances, but the workdays are long and I don't seem to have that much spare time. Oh well, this is the best way to learn my future job.
    About to reach a new level of otaku-ness; got my first Miku dakimakura cover this week (just for the record, it's family friendly). Now I just need the actual pillow...
    Two new (second hand) prize figures joined my Miku collection today. They came from Mandarake along with other stuff. Unfortunately 2012 Racing Miku has a nasty smell of tobacco smoke on her:(

    I heard you can get tobacco smell away using hairspray.

    I think I got rid of the smell quite well with a gentle soap wash followed by wiping the figure with water-vinegar mix. But thanks for the tip!
    Thanks for all the positive comments on my previous status! Maybe I'll post my drawings here once finished for the sake of getting advice. I draw by hand, so the quality might not be much, but I think it's okay since I'm a beginner, plus I don't have any tools for digital drawing. I've inked my drawing for the most part, it's just that mistakes show up easier now and there's alot of correcting to do.

    It doesn't have to be digital to be good O: Most of my favourite artworks I've commissioned have been traditional drawing. They are just as beautiful, just a different :D

    Like Bascetta said, digital/by hand are different media, but neither is intrinsically "better" than the other. Art done by hand has a proud heritage! Just depends on how you want to create going forward.

    If you really want digital tools, though, there are lots available for free. I was just reading elsewhere on the forums about Krita (https://vocaverse.network/threads/drawing-digitally-whats-wrong-with-my-layers.
    Should I try drawing fanart? Today was a bit boring so I made some sketches for fun. Now I have motivation to try and make a finished drawing, I only lack skill >_<
    My art so far has been so bad that I've thrown most away, but this time I'm going to try hard.

    It's best to take advantage if you're motivation when you have it! As Move stated, you'll improve the more you do it :D and try not to be too critical of yourself, many artists struggle with this and once you get past that, you'll learn how to improve off of your previous works. Good luck!

    Just do it! And if you share it, people can help you improve.

    Go for it! Even if your first artworks won't be satisfying - whatever. The worst you can get is a wasted hour. It's nothing compared to the great stuff that you can get when your art becomes better and better. And Miku-sama LOVES artists. ;)
