So I recently fixed my DS, and decided to play some games just for a nostalgia trip, one of them was Sonic Rush.

I tried to shade this one, but settled on having flat colors, because they make the image pop out more, not to mention that my current shading style just sucks.

takomomo:

please, please please please, donate to my friend cristails.
his paypal is askcristails@gmail.com .

anything is fine. a few cents, a few dollars, whatever you can.

i’m completely sure he needs it:

  • he’s recently acquired carpal tunnel in his dominant hand
  • he often has to choose between having somewhere to stay and eating because lack of funds
  • he’s going to get a GED soon and needs a calculator

if you show me proof of your donation, i’ll draw you a thing. i can’t promise i’ll do it quickly but i’ll make it quality, i promise.
you can also commission him for a wallpaper, a header, or button graphics. he can still do design stuff with his other hand.

he’s a wonderful friend and a really skilled artist. i want him to be able to take care of his basic needs and get treated for his wrist.

thank you. i’m sorry to ask this of you all, but this is serious.

SEND THE LOVE AROUND

A few weeks ago I was feeling pretty down. I was having trouble with a person and I was feeling very underappreciated as an artist, and while I did have my problems, it pissed me a lot. But instead of feeling sorry for myself (for once) I started thinking about other great, awesome artists I followed who could be feeling even shittier and not believing in themselves.

I admire them; each one of them. Each had their own perks that made themselves and what they create special. And I realized that hell, I love being told what people like in my work. Not just “you’re so good”, but “I love the way you draw this and that”. At that moment, I really wished someone would come over and tell me that. How many other artists around weren’t feeling that way, at that moment?

So the messaging started. I never wrote a model message, they were all personal. And the answers were all personal too. People who responded sounded honestly happy someone took time to tell them what they admired in them, and told them never to give up no matter what. The ones who didn’t, well - I know they liked it, because it was from the bottom of my heart.

So after this time debating if I should write this little thing or not, I made it.  I don’t know if there’s anythig similar around, but if it does, take this as a reinforcement. It’s not a campaign, nor a meme, nor will it grant you favours from your favorite artists. Please, don’t do anything if it’s for interest. Instead, look at the artist as another human being who struggles with daily life and yet make such beautiful things you admire so much. Call them by their name, tell them what you like in them. Or draw, paint, write or compose a lil’ something for them. Doesn’t matter. Show appreciation.

Send the love around to those who inspire you.
