Just listening to the 1st Podcast. Really interesting discussion about harshness in criticism. I think Void needs more criticism, people aren't harsh enough. Honestly, being at Art School and being in contact with Industry Professionals, it is hard, but you really don't get very many compliments and all discussion is geared towards improving your practice.
The more and more people are surrounded by great art, the less impressed they are with stuff that is actually quite standard. My teachers and the professionals who come in and see our stuff are completely unphased by our work even if we'd spent weeks on it, as if it were just a piece of bread or a window. We have to really push ourselves to get remotely noticed.
Its really fucking hard, but if you can push through it and stay determined I'm sure it will be worth it.

gosh I had like nothing to contribute that episode XD sorry for being so quiet! I had a lot of fun though! And I drew two more comic pages while listening! (since the recording though I've only inked one more page of Lilyfeather- but bit by bit shes getting done!)

Re: Introducing VC:SI !! Episode 2 is up!

This motivated me to draw my last comic page that I was feeling too drained to even start. But I did the whole thing in the time it took me to listen to this! Such a great motivational tool. Thank you! It's so great to hear people's encouragement and critique and just generally be so awesome. Also, all your comments on Scrumpy and his intro just blew me away like seriously I am so flattered thank you so much.
