    What’s a piece of advice you would give someone who wants to get better at art?
    Hmm, aside from practicing and drawing often, I would say don't compare yourself to other people and let it discourage you. I go through periods when I look at other people's art and think, why can't I make something like that? It's actually a good thing to think like that, because it means your mental skills are improving that you can tell what's good and see what you need to improve on in your own art. Rather than just thinking that your art is bad, take it as you need to work on your physical drawing abilities so it can catch up to what your eyes want to see, if that makes sense.

    Also, keeping a page for your art, like on Instagram is a good idea. While social media has it's cons, it also has a lot of benefits if you keep an open mind as it can be really encouraging and keep you drawing on a regular basis.

    Have you been to any countries other than Australia?
    I've been to America, Japan and South Korea

    Is there a place you really want to travel to one day?
    I really want to go to America again, since the last time I went was when I was 4 and don't remember a single thing. I also want to visit Norway, which will hopefully be soon.

    What got you into anime?
    I had nothing to do on Saturday mornings as a kid and there was usually a lot of Yu-Gi-Oh on TV, which I really enjoyed. Also Sailor Moon is amazing, that really made me like anime.

    What’s a part of art you want to improve on?
    Oh my god basically everything lol. I can't even narrow it down.

    Thanks for the questions!

    @Katey; Your Inktober animals are so cute and well drawn, it's cool that you're following the themes this month!
    @Megan; Your art is amazing as always, I especially love the first and third one.

    I've kept up but with a significant decrease in effort, really lacking the motivation and energy to draw.

    posted a message on Calligraphy
    Calligraphy is so nice to watch. I've never tried any calligraphy lettering in English, but I've done a lot of Chinese and Japanese calligraphy so I'm very familiar with using a brush to write Chinese characters. I have bought a special calligraphy pen in the past and wanted to try doing Calligraphy in English, but I never got around to it.

    I haven't painted anything in ages, not in a good art phase I suppose. I think I'm gonna start doing requests from my art shop again to get back into it.

    My biggest fear by far is people standing behind me. It makes me incredibly anxious and paranoid. Even worse if they're coughing/sneezing.

    posted a message on What is your sleep schedule like?
    Sleep mostly revoles around work. I almost always wake up at 5 am, sometimes 4 am if I have a morning shift. I try to go to sleep by 1 am, but I'll sleep at 3 am if I have the closing shift.

    posted a message on please do something about SOTM and MAC
    Hi guys

    So I've read through this thread, and I know we have to do something about MAC for sure. I'm going to be making different kinds of art events from now on, taking in the suggestions so far from this thread. So far I see the general conscious is:

    • It happens to frequently, it is too draining and takes the fun away from the contest
    • People don't enjoy losing. Azurilland has a very specific kind of art style that tends to win contests the most (both MAC and SOTM), and usually wins over talent and hard work. Some people are just bound to lose all the time no matter how talented they are, and this can be really discouraging.
    • The issue of themes is tricky, it really comes down to personal preference. I see some people saying that the theme is too specific, but that isn't always the case. For example cropped got a lot of entries, and it got a ton of entries when people were literally given a render to use.
    • I don't think the contests are rewarding enough to enter, the winner really doesn't gain anything other than a few congratulations. We can give more rewards, I'm not sure what.
    • We can try holiday art contests, but we've already done that and it hasn't worked in the past. Also, the themes are always going to be the same every year if it's based around holidays.

    I'm going to be planning more unique art contests in the future, if anyone else still cares enough to want to help me put it into action, feel free to send me any suggestions.

    I like pizza alright, I'm one of those people who enjoys pineapple on pizza. My favourite pizza is probably thin crust BBQ sauce, onions, chicken and bacon.
