How to become a better artist instantlyI'm a very introspective person. I spend a lot of time thinking about me, evaluating myself, problem-solving my performance.
So, being an artist, I always come across the problem: How can I be a really great artist?
Not in 10 years, not in 10,000 hours... I wanted to be good, like, NOW.
So I came to this discovery.
When I draw, I have a tendency to be very selfish.
What does that mean?
It means I make decisions that only benefit me, not the piece I'm working on.
It means thinking thoughts like, "I don't wanna re-do the background, I spent like 5 hours on it!" or "I don't want to cover up those hands, they look so good!"
And when you think about it, the only thing that does is make your illustration a collage of things you weren't willing to compromise.
If you want the piece to be good, you have to be ready to give your art the respect it deserves.
Stop being selfish. S

I need your help! O: (voting LAST ROUND!)[Edit 27.4.2016] Updated voting link for the final round! This will determine the winner.
Hello, how are you doing today?
It's a bit sudden to ask for help once again, but man, I AM SO EXCITED!
There's this thing in Germany called Max und Moritz Preis, which, for comic artists, is one of the coolest things you can get nominated for.... AND GUESS WHAT, Crash 'n' Burn, my Manga (read it here), has been nominated this year!
Last year I won the golden Kibo 'best Mangaka award' thanks to your amazing flood of votes but it never arrived, and honestly, I was crushed.
Now this chance presents itself, I just couldn't help but ask you again selfishly, to perhaps make a dream of mine happen.

Awesome Cosplayers of Fanime 2016My first Fanime ever. The cosplays were amazing. I think next year I might try going for a booth in the artists alley (once I get more print-able stuff done of course).

1 commission slot left + Patreon + thank you!Hello guys, how are you doing? What have you been up to these days? I hope you're having a wonderful day today!
First of all, thank you for all the beautiful wishes for my birthday. I tried to reply to every single one of you, but at one point it got out of control and I really didn't find the time to answer to hundreds of you. Hopefully you can understand that, but anyway I say: THANK YOU to whoever took the time to write a message and support me.. I appreciate it so, so much!
Secondly, I opened 2 commissions (now left) slots so go ahead and grab it^^ **If you have wondered why the commissions got a bit slower, my sister was getting married, we were arranging so many stuff in the house and I had my own birthday to celebrate with family. Now that all of those are behind me, I can really focus 100% on commissions so don't worry about it, it's all on their way^^
Third thing is my Patreon. It is a site where I upload raw PSD files, full size images, step-by-step tutorials, s
life update stuffIf anyone here follows me elsewhere, you probably know that I've been having a hard time for awhile now. (read this post if you're interested). Or, if you don't care, that's absolutely fine, too. We've all gotta live our own lives, you know? I don't expect all of you (or any of you) to take a personal interest in my life or my feelings or anything. I'm just an artist, ya know? This is just a place to post artwork. But this persona, this whole Akairiot thing, has become a big enough part of my life that I need to assert some humanity in it. I need to be me, I need to be honest, I need to be real. And as I've already stated, I don't want pity or advice. I just want to be clear about how I feel.
If all you want is the art, skip this. Skip any of this, that's cool with me.
If you DO want to keep up with me, as a human being, follow me on Twitter, or
Requests for practice [Always Open]Hi! ^^
I want to practice more with drawing so I decided to open requests. If you are interested and not afraid that I might draw your precious characters badly, then:
leave your OC info in the comments
Please note that:
•You must be a watcher
• I will draw anything what I feel like (digital, traditional, sketch, chibi, headshot, halfbody, etc.)
• I will pick OCs that catch my attention the most (please don't be sad if I won't pick your OC)
• I may upload finished drawings to my gallery or to sta.sh (might be in batches)
Thank you for reading!
How to get better at art and find inspiration!Hey everyone!!
Art improvement and inspiration is always the question I get asked most, so I am really going to go into detail!
If I help just one person I will be a bundle of joy!
Jemaica, how do I know you have any knowledge of this subject??
Behold, my 5 year improvement meme!
I think I improved quite a bit in 5 years!
How can an artist improve?
The number 1 way to get good at art is to PRACTICE A LOT!
Imagine that there are 10,000 bad drawings stuck in your hand before you can get to the really really good ones. You can either give up and never get the drawings out of your hand, or you can get them all out ASAP and reach those good ones that are probably stuck like, back in your shoulder and you need to get them free!
The more you challenge yourself will help you grow too. I love drawing cute faces, and to challenge myself I will put that cute face on a new body pose, or with a new light sou
