Anonymous sent: dif anon, if you're interested, for about a $30 or $40 investment you can get a couple of micron pens and some gray-tone copic markers (i really like the brush tips, they're super good for shading), which really ramps up the quality of your lines & maintains a graphic style. also revolutionary for me were non-photo blue sketch pencils. i always used sharpies before and switching to better materials made me feel better about my art.

Thanks for the tip! My materials are of the inexpensive type right now because like I said I’m just getting back into drawing and I didn’t want to make an initial investment into something I might end up abandoning or losing interest in. But I’ve found it to be therapeutic at the least, so I may make the investment in better materials to bring the quality up and make my stuff look better/cleaner.

Anonymous sent: it looks to me like you are just looking at a picture and drawing what you see rather than having a lay out before hand? like it looks like you are just copying the face with the naked eye so there is a lot of room for error.

No I do a bit of a template/outline first and then add in the details, but even that leaves for a margin of error I know lol because sometimes it comes out looking wonky. So I guess I have to work on improving my initial layout.

Anonymous sent: I would try experimenting with another medium other than whatever pens you are using because I think they are too limiting shading-wise.

i’m using Sharpies. I used to use the full range of lead pencils (light/heavy) but i got tired of the look of the drawings. Because I’m not talented enough to do hyper-realistic style, I switched to pens to give my art a more sketchy look that would imitat the subject matter but not look like I was trying to duplicate it exactly idk though… hmmm

Anonymous sent: your art is pretty good. can't tell whether its the style or not but the hair could use a little work. even if you want to get the separate strands like that. Also the noses all look the same and fit the standard of this is how you draw a nose. I would say try focusing on each model more closely so that you can really get the lines right. hope this was helpful.

Thanks! I’m coming back to drawing after a long hiatus, so some of my skills are rusty, including hair. I appreciate the feedback.

I’d like to get feedback about my art- you know, not just compliments from my friends, but constructive criticism, but that would mean going back to Deviantart and I am so not ready to go down that rabbit hole

here’s what i need everyone to do

i need you to get a glass of water, drink it, then take a deep breath. close your eyes. stop thinking about other peoples’ aesthetics. stop wishing you had someone else’s personal style. stop. mentally back up and look at yourself. you’ve probably already cultivated your own look and style and it’s not only comfortable, but actually distinctive. anyone can dress like someone else. only you dress like you. k? okay. i love you, go have another glass of water, champion.

i dont say it enough anymore but i love paul mccartney i love him with all of my heart like he makes me so happy. the way he talks makes my insides feel like warm and home and i love him

my-little-underground sent: I think you are such an inspiration to people (including myself) on this site. The way you talk about your mental illness as well as being open and honest with others and give advice is really awesome. I do hope one day you find peace with yourself because following you for so long I get so happy when I see you happy because you really deserve happiness. You also have great taste in music and I rediscovered Twin Peaks after following you. You are just a good person Roxy who deserves happiness.

This is so sweet and so lovely I just :’)
