Thanks!
It's IT, I'm working from home cus of the carbonara virus, it's not that stressful.
Oh, I see. Don't stress yourself that much. Are you doing online classes?
Aww xd Good luck with them. Are they hard subjects?

We used to have a reliable and impartial newspaper here in Austria, but over the years the quality dropped and they also started to support certain political views. I still read it sometimes, because it is still better than all the other trash papers we got around here. Sadly, when I am really interested in something or want to get informed without the bias, I still have to look up different news sources or do the research myself. I guess that's just the way it is nowadays.

I also tried keeping a journal because so many people suggested it and told me that there are so many benefits. Yet it never stuck with me and I got bored of it pretty quickly. Then I got a whiteboard instead and started using it for planning, organizing and collecting thoughts. It is quite similar to a journal, but it is definitely more fun to use. It's more spacious and you can stick notes with magnets on it.
Personally, I would put techniques last. My approach would be to finalize a character design to know, how the character should look in general. Then I would try different techniques and pick the one that is more to my liking. Otherwise, I would most likely get lost in finding the right technique and perfecting it.

It is fine to get angry at yourself and to feel a bit demotivated, but never get lost in those emotions. A coach once told that a mountain climber in front of Mt. Everest never looks at the top, because the top would seem unreachable and the way to it too difficult. That's why the focus on the ground in front of them. In short: Set yourself smaller goals and don't get too annoyed with yourself.
You always seem so cheerful when talking about drawing and all those different techniques, I hope you never lose that.

I don't think any of that makes you "stupid", as you call it. You don't have to be knowledgeable in every single topic to be called intelligent. It is difficult to measure intellect. Imagine asking a physicist about greek mythology or the human psyche, I bet at that moment some of them would look a bit "stupid". Yet none of them are. You are studying and probably know a lot more than you admit, so I will call you smart. You are just underselling yourself. I hope I make any sense at all.

Honestly, I feel bad for dogs, that got bred over and over again just to appeal to a certain crowd. They have so many health problems and it seems like the character also changes. The Japanese Spitz is a bit bigger and adorable, but still too small for me. If I would have to pick a similar looking dog I would either choose Finnish Spitz or Samoyed. Generally speaking, I prefer dogs, that at least reach my knee.
It is really rare that they spit on someone unless you annoy or threaten them. Most of the time they don't even pay any attention to you, even if you enter their enclosure.
There used to be so many different animals around but their number dwindled over the years.

The setting and which characters live in my world are pretty much finished, now I only need to find time and motivation to start the project. It's a deal then. Do you have any favorite book or book series?

I've had discord for a long time - used to skype with my friend all the time, but something bigger would've been better. It wasn't as great at first because here in Italy it used to lag a lot, but not anymore thankfully!
They both have their charm, I feel like Forums are better for first impressions while discord is better if you have befriended that person in particular.
Discord might fit the gaming side more, but it all depends on the audience; Maybe random discord servers might be like that, but it all depends on the people, really. It's maybe just the fact that it's more instantaneous than others that makes the difference in the end, and I feel like that difference just makes people care more about joking on the moment than crafting an adequate response - though I can do both cuz I've got superpowers! -w-

You know, gladdest thing ever they're gone now, I was so cringe when I first joined, oh my, if they were still here I'd just make a second account to avoid the embarrassment, not sure about you. Xo
I wasn't in the mal discord server, never have been actually if not once when me and Izuma tried to contact Kineta because of one of the many cases somebody started getting cyberbullied on fg, oh gosh.
In the end, It actually grew smaller in activity - as I said, we lost ourselves, and for a group that started as a 'friend group' this worked out against us... :c
TheMariqua Nov 7, 6:01 PM
I supposed it was the club thingy since I wasn't as present in mal clubs...
They've all been replaced by discord groups though, that's why they're not as prominent as they once was, it... makes me feel a little bit sad for a time I haven't experienced first hands at all, but I certainly do feel like the clubs were the better alternative.... they always feel a bit more sociable and friendly than discord.
Like I said, second option, I'm used to the profile page instantly popping up when I type in the username...

I think they just got fed up of fg, I miss them, but I don't mind new people coming in. It's actually not the first time I've seen it happen, staying on FG for such a long time I've seen plenty of people come and go, it's always kinda sad to see it, but I like the diversity and... dunno, it kinda feels a bit like real life I guess. :p
I don't really recall you though! Did you have a different name? You give me a familiar air but I have a feeling I might've seen you less than I've seen some other people...
Actually, that og group moved to discord and I'm in their server - it's the only discord server i've allowed myself to enter and stay, and I only did it because Chaet was in it - actually, most of the people in it are for that reason, I just felt really sad by the direction it took, I always found myself better in server with a circle of group type of deal, but I didn't get as lucky and they made the server... well... open to the public I feel like we've lost ourselves. :c
Huskkay Nov 7, 3:43 PM
Yeah, it's pretty hard to find a reliable news source/media company. More and more of them focus too much on sensationalism and scaremongering to rake the cash in. I often ask myself if the general public will ever start to be fed up with it.

Well, seems like you already have a plan in mind on how to make those characters come to life. Just give it a try and if it doesn't work out, I am sure you will figure something out. Maybe it will help you if you start writing notes down about these characters and slowly get more detailed. You could try focusing on the traits, behaviors and how they act instead of the actual design. Nevertheless, you should definitely try your idea and just draw whatever comes to mind.

You are really not very gentle with yourself. Pressure, expectations, they fill up your head and gnaw at you and be it just subconsciously. At least that's what I gathered with those few words we exchanged. Maybe I am completely wrong, who knows, but definitely don't be embarrassed if you made something terrible, try to laugh it off and give it another go.
Then I will tell you the same, just go for it and post your artworks. There will be a few shitheads out there who only bash on things but the majority will be friendly people who mean well.
Did you try different techniques or were you always settled on wet-on-wet?

Don't be silly, something like that doesn't make you stupid. It is just a different learning technique and it simply may not be for you. Are you more the auditory, kinesthetic or visual learner?

The crazy dogs are without a doubt the small ones. The ones you can stuff in a purse. I am more of a fan of the bigger breeds and my favorite breed would be the Bernese mountain dog. Yes, it is not the Husky.
Alpacas also have a mischievous side and you are better off if you never let them think of you as one of the herd. Otherwise, they will start kicking, biting or spitting on you and that spit smells rancid. Here are a few photos: https://postimg.cc/gallery/wBtXCN2
There are just so many cute or fascinating animals out there. Like the roe deers that live nearby. We have a feeding station for them and, unless they invade your garden and eat all the veggies, they are just adorable. Sadly I haven't seen many foxes, pheasants or hares around even the falcon disappeared this year.

I had multiple attempts at writing a story but I never could stick to one. After some time I stopped starting over and over again and now I just collect my thoughts and ideas. Maybe one day I will have a serious go at it. BTW If you publish a book, I want a signed copy.
TheMariqua Nov 7, 10:46 AM
Hmm, I don't really ever remember him being ever really active, though it might be because I started going to FG in late 2016 and took my hiatuses as well.
Actually, no...? I literally copied and pasted it, no way I mistyped it. But like I said, Mal's search just jumbled me and I couldn't find him at first. Xo

Remember being the key word here - when there were chaet and chyssa and all those people, it was pretty great, but since that generation of users is now gone and replaced by another, ehhh, I've already had plenty of people get a wrong impression of me and dislike me at the start!
Huskkay Nov 6, 11:10 AM
Hey, it's nice to hear from you again and here I was, thinking I scared you away with my drawings.

If those characters are still a bit vague, maybe all you need is a bit more time. It's not like you will forget about those characters the next day. One day you could be looking out the window, see a weird cloud, and get hit by inspiration. Sounds strange, but, at least in my own experience, that's how you find the answer to unsolvable things sometimes.
'It's impossible to imagine an entirely different person in your head', I have never heard that, maybe there is a similar saying here in Austria but I can't think of one. My first reaction would be to agree with you, I also don't think that's it is impossible. The image in someone's head might be completely false, but there is no harm done and you don't lose anything. If that makes sense.

It sounds like you really focus on improving and because of that, you put yourself under a bit of stress. While there is nothing wrong with that at first, please don't burn yourself out. Fun is the most important factor otherwise you might get stuck in a disadvantageous mindset.
If you are feeling nervous about posting your art on Instagram, maybe try smaller communities first and slowly but steadily widen the range.

Yeah, sadly, those professors and teachers exist as well. I had my share of "fun" with them. This year I did a lot of self-teaching and I have to agree with you, it helps you grow mentally and it can even be more informative than textbooks. At the same time, it is very difficult and sometimes frustrating, because you have to dig everything up yourself and then decide if it is important or not.

It is really hard for me to name a favorite animal. If I had to pick one it would be human's greatest friend: the dog. Basic af, I know. About a year ago I took care of a few alpacas for a week and fed the small ones with a milk bottle. I should still have a picture of it if you want to see it. So, alpacas are probably near the top because of that experience, but there are so many animals that are great. Do you have a favorite animal?

That's the great thing about fantasy, there is no limit and you can shift and shape your world however you like it, it will never be wrong. I wonder, were you ever interested in writing a book or anything similar?
TheMariqua Nov 6, 9:04 AM
Yep, I've seen him countless times throughout the years and... and never spoke a word to him!
Yeah, it's rather awkward; if the name was the same mal used to bring you to that person's profile, I wonder why that doesn't seem to work like that anymore... >.>'

Wish could say the same! But like, I'm a 100% intrusive weirdo so it's understandable that for me that number is less than a hand's worth: 3.
But it's better than nothing, I suppose, right?
-iva Nov 6, 8:40 AM
Yeah, you can do some simple free editing on it.
YESS have you seen the profiles of people in the monthly best profile contests I-
