So I've been struggling the past few months to motivate myself to start a drawing habit. Well more than that, I've wanted to learn to draw for as long as I can remember, but I've always set up so many road blocks for myself. I bought a tablet years ago and barely used it, I bought a newer, fancier tablet earlier this year and again have barely used it. But I think I finally got a plan to get me started. (I think most normal people simply put art on a page, but I'm not normal people!)

Here's the plan, we're starting with good ol pencil, pen, and paper. I think trying to learn how to use the tablet itself has been blocking me. We can do digital later. I want to use pen for most of it so I can't get thrown off by my perfectionism. Once a line is down, no more fixing it. And this is the important part, I have a hard time figuring out what to draw so I've decided to take that road block out of the way by going through all the Pokémon from number 1 all the way through 800+ whatever! I don't even like Pokémon that much, but lots of them are cute and there's a lot of variety to work with. I bought a stack of paper, and the plan is to find reference images and start practicing construction, composition, shapes, etc. I'm not gonna worry about making original poses (yet), I can copy what I find online so long as I'm not tracing it. I want to be able up construct the same image from scratch using basic shapes and such. I'll get more used to taking a character and creating something completely new with practice.

So, that's the plan, and I've already gotten started. I drew some bulbasaur, ivysaur, and started on venusaur (dude's got so many details!). I'll be using this thread to catalog the art journey, and keep myself accountable to doing the drawings. Feel free to drop in and say hi, comment on the art stuff, or whatever. I'd be happy to take suggestions and draw for people too, might as well, if you don't mind the quality being what it is!

How easy is it for foreigners to find employment over there?  I've been looking at Japan and am keeping my options open.  One consideration I have too is how easy Fatca laws are to enforce over there, know China it's non existent.

Well I've been working on a fanfiction that's been rattling in my head for a long time now. I have several chapters written but still in the editing process of them while I posted the first a couple months ago

I am not into the space mission to be honest.

I mostly just read about the properties of the planets and stelar bodies. I also like to read the theories that may explain the behavior of the universe, I have not in a couple of weeks though.

i just watched the movie, and several episodes, with my little sister, and i was so moved by them

i love that show... but was a little disappointed with the season end

the new movie, and the new show though? i love them. the movie, especially, was full of great songs.

and Spinelle... i so painfully relate to her. i loved her so.

the character i still relate most to though, is pearl. she had so many good scenes.

Alright so...this thread. Not sure how to start this thread really.

I want to make this thread as an attempt at a type of group therapy. The reason for this is that, while many of us had normal childhoods, and hopefully not too many bad things later in their adults years, I know some of us had quite messed up childhoods and/or are struggling as an adult.

I want this thread to be geared towards being able to talk about traumatic, or just bad, experiences throughout your lives. Maybe reflect on them, and find support in others and realizing you were not, or at least are not now, alone in things.

Please only talk so far as you feel comfortable. I'm sure people will get questions about things, or asked for further explanation, but you do definitely do not have to go further if you don't feel comfortable.

Please be as supportive as you can, I'm sure some of us come from backgrounds and cultures with beliefs that may seem cruel or wrong to an outsiders point of view. Please don't mock those views, but rather try to, if you must, just state why you think they might be harmful and leave it at that.

Try and remember we are not doctors or psychologists, this is just for support, understanding, and maybe discovering something about ourselves.

I think that's a little bit misguided, or misinterpreted. Finding validation in yourself is being happy with yourself, and a part of being happy with yourself is having friends and family that validate you. That tell you you are good and worth it, and your importance is just as important as everyone elses, and that you matter to them.

For some people it's easier to be happy and proud of themselves, but for a lot of people, we need another perspective, and love and acceptance from someone else.


File: 1577998529407.jpeg (150.64 KB, 1280x960, 4:3, pdp7.jpeg) ImgOps Google

Maybe it is misinterpreted, but I feel like it's the better idea too. the problem with needing love and acceptance from others is that you'll always need it. and worse is I've had the people that I thought love and accepted me reject me outright. It single handedly destroyed all my self esteem in a moment.

I actually had a time I felt wonderful and great. I was happy, chiper. I was losing weight. I felt like I belonged somewhere and people loved what I did. Yeah it was unusual to most, but I was able to be myself still and just... so happy and positive.

That literally all changed over a week. my own personal security being invaded, and then my own family basically telling me to put it all away.

Even 7 years later I feel it. And now I feel like I'm in a horrible spin of wanting to feel love and accepted and unable to get it, but also terrified of receiving it as it could be so easily taken away. and the constant back and forth destroying me but I can't give myself my own acceptance because the voices of childhood and my loved ones making me feel like I don't deserve it.


Well, I'm not sure what happened to you anon, but from the way you talk about it, it doesn't sound like it was completely fair. And it sounds like it caused you to fear that type of relationship with people.

I don't know what the solution to that is, but I know it can be hard to trust people, especially when you've been hurt. But to not trust anyone ever again is almost harder. So maybe there's a balance? Maybe not open yourself up completely, all at once? And if it backfires, then at least you only gave so much of yourself that you could risk giving.

As far as deserving things or not, well I seriously doubt that you are somehow not deserving of love. That seems pretty freakin silly to me.

Well, it's finally the week of Christmas. Hanukkah started a day ago, Ramadan is in a few days, Winter Solstice has passed and even some of you are celebrating Festivus. We're currently deep into the week of holidays for many, many people so let's all go out there and be the best people we can be.

And of course all are welcome to come in and have a warm cup and talk about whatever is on their minds, for mingling can open eyes and minds on everything out there.

They even started outright shipping New Guy with a blonde girl from another strip where the 'punchline' was literally "Oh, you're not gay like I thought you were when you mentioned your 'girlfriend'? Then you are immediately not interesting as a person whatosever".

It's been a wild ride man, but just seeing the positive result is amazing.

Wow, definitely a wild ride.
