*Incoming rant. Hopefully it helps someone. If I'm too rough with my speech, it's just the way I am <3*

Guys/ladies/people-with-300-genders, please. I'm happy to teach and all that crap but I hate giving obvious answers/material and you're acting like some spoiled brat who wants me to come over there and teach you how to draw.

I'm not that great. I really ain't.
I'm just a silly idiot who likes to draw and make people happy with my art.

I already held a workshop at a convention and I think it went okay and people thanked me for it, but I still think I could do better. I'm not really a teacher cause all the stuff I learned was by myself with the help of some other artists.
But it's not cause I asked them to pinpoint my errors; I just wanted to show my art and how proud I was and they ripped it apart (good friends ♥). They literally told me I was shit, pinpointed what was shit and I was happy they did cause it's how I adapted to improve. Without it I would not be able to get to where I was right now. It's hard to describe cause it's a unique experience... for me, at least.

Some people say "You could be like :icontsitra360:". But I don't want to. He has his own style and I would never get in to that way of drawing. I like the way I draw and people like the way I draw. I adapt (hey, something new for you art people) bit by bit from experimenting and liking it the way I draw it. If Tsitra360, among a lot of my senpai artists officially told me without me even asking that they are a fan of the way I draw stuff, then I know I'm doing something right.

Learn to stand on your own 2 feet and take one step at a time. We all have a great potential to express our feelings and learn, but begging isn't the right way to do it cause you're gonna get ignored. No one wants to guide someone who doesn't dare to wander out in the wilderness on their own without a compass. If you want that kind of teaching; go to an actual art school.

I remember teaching a class (it was a prop) and they were supposed to ask stupid questions. One person asked me at an IT job; "How do I calibrate my GPU to minimize it's performance" and I felt the question was too stupid so my answer was "How did you get this job?". Rough, but that's how I grew up.

If you feel I'm wrong, let me know :heart:

PS: And to the people trying to sing, write, art and do music at the same time; get real. Start at one interest and proceed to the other. You don't learn something in a few days or months. If you happen to do it, great for you. But the majority don't.

I love all your Pictures, Just wondering, where did you learn to draw like that? were you self taught, or get shit off the internet or something? and 1 more thing, do you take personal requests, comishions or however the fuck you spell it as in not phone ones, profile pics or desktop backgrounds, if so would you ever upload it as a speed paint on Utube?
KnifeH Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist

I'm self-taught so most practice come from observing other pictures or practice.
I don't do requests and stuff like that unless it's for a really close friend or if it's something silly (spur of the moment). Don't really have the time for that.

I do commissions however which you can read about here:
As for speedpaint. I usually only do them when I draw something for myself.
