…an ode to 1970s skater girls.
I laugh untii I cry everytime I watch this video and it’s been a while since it’s been on my dash so here
there he go
Some harsh but very very true words
When people let me review their portfolios (on career day or open days at my game design school) I explicitly ban them from commenting during the review… …because otherwise they will follow the impulse to downplay everything I see in an attempt at being humble.
"this is an old image…"
"I’m not happy with that one…"
"this is just a sketch…"
"I did this really quickly…"
"there is better stuff on later pages…"
It’s totally understandable to have those impulses. The quality of art is not empirical data and therefore impossible to measure. Good art, bad art, it all comes down to standards. And you don’t want to come off as naive or self-absorbed.
But just don’t do it. Don’t talk yourself down in front of others. In the best case you have someone supportive who now thinks “damn, this person needs to be prepped up all the time. Do I really want to work with somebody like that” or in worst case “now that you say it, yeah, this is kinda lame/rushed/unfinished/lazy, go away.”
You can only submit what you have. If that is not enough, then it’s not enough. Your attitude will not change that. But if it is enough, you can do serious harm by not being confident of who you are now.
This means appreciating what you are able to do right now and have a clear vision of what you want to learn, be confident that you will learn it in time.
This is really important. Eliminate this urge. Eliminate it professionally, when having contact with people in a position to buy your work. Eliminate it socially, when you just share your work for fun. Destroy this urge as thoroughly as you possibly can.
Because when you have done that, you’ll find that you feel at least 25% less shitty about your own work. You lose the urge to do it. You stop reinforcing those negative thoughts, and they retreat. They may never go away completely (although they might!) but this is good practice for ignoring those thoughts flat-out.
Don’t shit-talk yourself. Even if you can’t be SO PROUD, don’t ever try to influence anyone’s opinion toward your work in the negative.
Try to love your work. Try to see what you learned from each piece, even if it’s a failure. If you feel that you learned nothing, appreciate the fact that just spending time on it is honing your skills and giving you valuable practice.
i used to be super not-confident in my own work. When I stopped pointing out the flaws in my own stuff, I felt better about it almost immediately.
BEING HETEROSEXUAL ISN’T NORMAL IT’S JUST COMMON
This is the truest statement I will ever reblog.
Ladies, if you think your man is cheating. Take him to that bitches front door and see if his wifi connects.
"People your age shouldn’t be playing video games"
"People your age shouldn’t be buying toys"
"People your age shouldn’t be…"
real pressure is when your mum comes in and you have like 1.3 seconds to decide on the least dodgy tab to switch to
accidentally walking in on your friends getting yelled at
remember when these pieces of shit were everywhere and they were the best thing ever
and when you were too old to play with them you would just randomly move one when no one was looking
Britain’s first black marchioness
This is: Emma McQuiston
And as that says, she’s this first black marchioness Britain has ever had.
But she’s not the only black royal
but THIS IS A BIG DEAL.
plus she’s getting snubbed like big time. The groom’s father didn’t even come. And she said things like:
“she has been snubbed by the British elite because of her ethnicity and background”
SO REBLOG IT, CAUSE SHE’S GORGEOUS AND EVERYONE SHOULD LOVE HER.
whenever someone tells me “it’s your fault i ship this” my heart swells with pride and purpose
“I wanted to say, ‘Hey ladies, you’re beautiful,’. Hopefully, this changes things and maybe it won’t change things, but I love it.” - Nicki Minaj on the Anaconda music video
