Manga Artists Tools / Re: Tool Recommendations?
« on: February 22, 2020, 10:15:13 AM »
This is just my preference but I prefer traditional wooden pencil over mechanical I guess I can sharpen it and get a good fine line. Besides it's annoying when the lead in a mechanical pencil breaks. A regular HB pencil should do for drawing but if you want to shade with pencil you might want to get a softer pencil. I prefer to shade with a 4 or 5b pencil but its different for everyone. As for inking I use a set of microns in varying sizes as I hate using nib pens because of how old fashion they are. The only problem I have with microns is it will smear as I color in my drawings with copic markers. As for carrying your art supplies around to school I would recommend using your school bag if it's big enough. If you want to keep your supplies safe and organized I would get a makeup bag to put your pencils and pens in then put that in your backpack. I was an art student in college and that's exactly what I would do. Also if you're a middle or high school student I would only reccomend drawing in school when you got time like if you got nothing to do in study hall. But I know how tempting it can be to draw during a boring lecture.

True even if you are born with a natural talent for something if you dont practice every day you won't get any better. Still I'm starting to see my talent for art as not much of a talent especially if even stupid people can make art. Still I would like to have a talent. I just wish I had a more useful talent.

I've heard that autistic people are usually naturally good at art but what's the point of being a good artist if you're stupid. I guess art isn't such a great talent to have after all.

I'm suddenly wondering if I'm a natural born artist. I'm reading that most natural born artist are into art at a young age. I didn't get into art though until I was about in 2nd grade and started getting inspired by all the tv shows I would watch and stuff like that. When I was younger though about 5 I didn't have as much interest in drawing and would draw people as stick figures. By 4th grade though I won 3rd place in a state wide art contest, which I consider my biggest accomplishment. Also I come from a rather artistic family on my dad's side. My dad has mentioned to me that back when he was a teenager the family would get together and play music. Also my uncle use to oil paint. I often doubt in my own abilities though, but I guess I'm my own worst critic. Also I have a hard time staying on task and focusing for very long.

I'm not sure what to think about doctors. I see a doctor but he thinks I have ADHD and I'm not sure what to think about that. I just feel like having a mental disability makes me less of a human. Sorry for coming here and being depressed.

I'm not entirely sure depression is something that can be cured. I usually am more productive when happy so maybe I should get use to happiness since I tend to be more productive when happy.

I really don't want to think of myself as mental and having depression. I worry that would mean I have a disability and am useless. But, it seems for some odd reason I like the feeling of sadness. Maybe others really are right and I am useless because I like sadness so much.

Unfortunately no one seems to understand my need to constantly be sad so they think I'm mental and put me on medication that makes me feel happier but I don't always like being happy for some odd reason.

Thanks for the advice. I think part of the reason I'm not happy is because I feel as though I'm being forced to be happy all the time when I would much rather be sad. I feel like others don't understand that as strange as this sounds I'd rather be sad. Perhaps what I need is a new hobby for now. I'd really like to get into sewing and I feel with some practice and time I'd be good at it. My aunt use to sew and was really good at it. Sewing a purse sounds kind of fun. It's just hard for me to stay interested in something though. I don't know why but I get bored easily. Not sure what to do about that.

Lately I seem to be losing interest in being an artist. Whenever I draw or write these days it feels more like a chore then something fun. It seem like I'm forcing ideas out of me then letting them come naturally.  It use to be that when I was really little I would get my inspiration from the tv shows and movies I would like but these days I'm just not as into watching video as I was when I was a kid. Maybe I need a new inspiration but I'm not sure what. I kind of like video games so maybe I could get inspiration from the video games I play. I kind of feel like I need a new hobby but nothing seems interesting. I thought about getting more into fashion (I'm a girl by the way) but I absolutely hate shopping for clothes mostly because it's impossible to find nice clothes in my size. I could try to lose weight so I could actually fit into nicer clothes but because of my genetics it's impossible for me to lose weight so what's the point of trying to lose weight. I also thought about getting into video game design since I like video games but I seem to lose interest in that rather quickly too. It seems I'm bored with everything these days. What can I do? I feel like I have no passion in life anymore.

I hate to admit, but I wasnt always a good artist. In kindergarten I was criticized for drawing stick figures. I guess what got me into drawing and writing though was that as a young kid I watched a lot of cartoons and would be inspired by what I watched to make my own stories like them. However I never was into writing fan fiction though. To this day I'm still unsure about writing fan fiction because of copyright.

Thanks. I'm glad to be back here and hopefully I can get some artwork posted soon.
@ supersan I can definitely be stubborn which can be both good and bad. Seems to be a family trait as my mom can also be stubborn.

@moonflame moving out can be both very scary and exciting. I never thought I would ever get the chance to move out since I had a very hard time finding a job. While I'm kind of looking forward to finally being out on my own, I'm also going to miss living with my parents. Part of it is that they have always been there for me. Also now that I'm going to be on my own I got to be more responsible. Luckily I'll still be able to come and visit my parents after I move out. As for finding a job after college the best advice I can give you is to put in applications especially to places you never thought of. I never thought I could handle the kind of job I have because of how unfocused I am and sometimes my job is hard for me because of my lack of focus and organization, but usually I do a good job despite my lack of focus. Also apply for any job that you qualify for even if its something that doesn't seem too fun. Sadly we live in a very materialistic world which means you are going to need some money in order to survive. As long as you're making just enough to survive though and don't get too caught up in material things you should be fine. I still can't stand materialistic people. I've always been the type that as long as I'm making enough money to survive I'm fine.

Yeah when I started college I was worried about what would happen afterwards. I thought I would never get a job and move out since I kept getting rejected for a job which was part of the reason I went to college. I suppose that it helps to be determined that and putting in applications.

Hi you sound like me a bit especially the part about starting a book and never finishing it. I have a very short attention span and am really disorganized, which doesn't always help. By the way what country are you from since you're not a native English speaker.
