SDCC is a press convention. So are NYCC and Wondercon. Press conventions are written into talent contracts with TV shows like Teen Wolf. They don’t get paid to appear. Their appearance at the convention is part of their job, it’s the thing they do because they are promoting…
Every artist who sees this post should do the following:
- Watch the video.
- Follow the instructions
I can’t stress you enough about how important these exercises are for your drawing hand. You don’t wanna get CTS of Tendonitis and similar stuff that will prevent you from making art or even hold a pencil.
Okay, this guy is my fucking HERO. I just did these exercises as I watched the video, and already my arms and hands feel better. I have a degenerative tendon disease that prevents my muscles, tendons and ligaments from retaining their elasticity, and so anything that maintains the health of my bendy parts is important.
I URGE YOU. Even if you don’t draw, do these several times a day. Even just sitting at a computer can do serious damage. My dad, who was a rugby player, a carpenter, and now a handyman, suffered from severe carpal tunnel syndrome, simply as a result of sitting at the computer at the end of the day to play a little solitaire. Don’t let it happen to you!
Huh, my arm was getting a little bit tensed actually and I thought, ‘why the hell not’. Surprisingly enough I could feel a release of tension in my arms so that’s pretty cool.
I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly. :( Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy! You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through. You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way! Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!
The news came yesterday that Book 3 of The Legend of Korra was being pulled from Nickelodeon to air online. So of course the creators of the show had to address it at this morning’s Comic-Con panel — which they did, before moving on to celebrate the show.
In case you didn’t see our explanation from the opening of our SDCC panel in video or in person, this io9 article transcribed it. (One minor note is that I said “cable cutters” and not “cable numbers,” but I mumble so no big deal). You can also find this speech in the first 3.5 minutes of the full video of our panel, uploaded by various people on YouTube, if you want to hear me mumble it instead. Thanks again for the continued, amazing support from fans of the show!
