I bought my friend an elephant for their room.
They said “Thank you.”
I said “Don’t mention it.”
just fucking draw. don’t compare yourself to other people, don’t stop because you drew a lot last tuesday and you haven’t visibly improved. it takes time, effort, and a lot of perseverance. besides, no matter how “bad” you think you are, there’s still gonna be someone who thinks the stuff you produce is the best goddamn thing they’ve ever seen in their entire life. the artist you were five years ago would have their mind fucking blown by the artist you are today. so just draw a fuckton, because every new thing you draw is one drawing better than you were before.
so sick of people looking for a secret way to suddenly get better. It takes work, practice, perseverance, and you probably won’t get all the happy fun notes or really necessary money for it either. Fine, look at your work and cry a little, but keep it off the internet (and out of the public eye at all), and just keep fucking drawing
I LITERALLY CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH please it irritates me so much when people say shit to me like “Look at my drawing it’s so BAAAD I’ll never be as good as you” like not with that fucking whiney attitude you’re not
I’m still far from perfect and there are still times when I feel like I’ll never be as good as the people I look up to but then I STOP BEING A BABY AND DRAW SOME MORE AND THAT’S WHAT YOU SHOULD DO TOO
i heard people were pokeshaming
so i procrastinated homework and taking out the laundry
Making this was so painful because i could only imagine what these characters would be like in smash
More Gifs, this time with pokemon… I know I should be excited with the R/S remakes, but my love for Johto is vast and endless
when people who have treated you like absolute shit are sad

The evolution of girl gamers
Male gamers are so self-centered they act as though women haven’t been playing video games for decades, then act horrified when the female gamers who’ve always been there actually become visible and vocal about the rampant misogyny in the gaming world.
Like seriously, how entitled do you have to be that women saying “it would be nice if I wasn’t treated like shit while trying to enjoy the games I play” translates to “I must be catered to” when video games have LITERALLY been catering to (cishet) men for decades?
- 1993 - 64% of girls reported playing video games
- 1996 - "home use had increased for fourth grade girls"
- 1998 - "both male and female adolescents play video games on a regular basis."
- 1999 - "88% of the female college students … surveyed were video game players."
- 2007 - 20-47% of adolescent girls play video games
- 2008 - "94% of girls play video games"
- 2010 - "Forty percent of all game players are women."
- 2012 - "Women 18 or older represent a significantly greater portion of the game-playing population (30%) than boys age 17 or younger"
- 2013 -"adult women are nearly half of all video game players"
I didn’t get all the dates, but I think you can get the point.
Also considered posting my own personal gaming history, but I would’ve had to go back to the 80s for that. e_e
