***** Weekly Links are the bi-weekly (in name only) article series where I post interesting links I’ve found over the past 2 weeks. Mostly I post art references (thiccccccc), art videos that helped me, philosophy stuff occasionally, and lastly some music that I found and love! I also do a little blog post about myself if you’re a weirdo and wanna read about my struggle to become the anime tiddiez master. *****
(Pic of the cat girl again. I swear I’ve been drawing other stuff, I just haven’t released the finished versions yet! More coming soon-ish… Also, a wordless version is available in my gallery.)
Hardly any links, WTF. See? This is what happens when I do things kinda on time. Or maybe it was the funk I’ve been this path month?
Haven’t really stumbled on anything on the internet as I’ve been trying to figure out my life the past month. I got re-addicted to video games this path month and let my art slide a lotttttttttt. I don’t even remember what started the whole cycle again. I think it was because I had another existential crisis from some new things I learned from mentors. This new info put me in a downed state and what better thing to do while down then play video games!
This is all my best guess by the way, I have no fucking idea what started this all. My memory’s kinda fuzzy from this past month as this past week has annihilated my past.
The past isn’t real. Always remember this…
Anyways, something clicked in me this past week and I brought my art demons back to life. I’ve been drawing like crazy for the past week and once again have lost my desire to play video games haha! The struggle is fucking real guys. Stay on the path of learning your skill. Victor Pride talked in New World Ronin about that regaining momentum is way harder that maintaining it. Learn from me fellow artists and aspiring masters (of w/e field you’re in)! DO NOT LOSE YOUR MOMENTUM IN YOUR ART. I was a soulless husk while I was ignoring art the past month. I feel like I woke up from a month long sleep when I started drawing again this past week. Seriously, the past month felt like a fog where I was comatose and now that I’m drawing again, I feel alive. My purpose is restored.
*Dark Souls big green letters*
LIFE PURPOSE RESTORED
Don’t lose your momentum doods, it’s not fun and you turn into a zombie.
Kk, that’s enough preachin’. Lets see some link-o’s.
Jade Picon – Another gorgeous latina, holy fuck I’m done. Same as the previous girl, really pretty face but she has grey eyes! The face refs are real.
Nadine Jansen – Beautiful big booby lady who runs a soft core porn site (that focuses on other big booby ladies). If you like da big boobies or need references for huge tits, this would be a good place to check out. The only issue is that it’s a pay wall site, but they do have 2-3 sample pictures for each set so that should be enough (because they have a fuck ton of sets).
Gravure Heaven – Tumblr that posts a ton of YUMMY Gravure models from Japan! ^_^
Matilda Fiship – Artist that makes a lot of demon/monster/angel girls. I LOVE the way she does her eyes, her characters have big beautiful eyes! She also makes her girls a little on the thick side so bonus points!
Guweiz – I don’t remember if I shared this guy before or not??? Oh well! Amazing fucking artist! I know I say that a lot but this dood is the real deal. He’s been painting for 4 years and already he is fucking phenomenal!!! Out of all the super fine art guys, I think this guy is my favorite.
Holly Bell – Really cute Disney-style art! If you’re a crazy Disney whacko (like most girls), you will love this artist!
Bokuman – Erotic artist that focuses on the thickness, ayyyy! He also has a lot of great anatomy tutorials, check him out.
Norasuko – Artist that focuses on loli hentai. Kinda don’t like his art cuz he draws a lot of lolis, BUUTTTTT he’s got a shit ton of tutorials on his tumblr that teach a lot of valuable lessons in art. This guy knows his stuff, check him out if you want to learn.
The Importance of Marketing
I shouldn’t even have to even write a description here. If you’re on the internet and you want people to look at your stuff (music, writing, art, videos, stream, etc…),
YOU NEED TO KNOW MARKETING.
This is the biggest problem ALL creatives have, they don’t know shit about marketing. I’ve seen tons of incredible artists, writers, musicians, film-makers, etc who don’t have marketing skills and barely have a following on the internet at all. This video alone will teach you so much about marketing in the modern social media era! This video seriously has hundreds of dollars worth of information and Grant is giving it away for free. If you’re a creative, watch this video and take notes!
I will write a book about these things in the future. brb a couple years, gotta get famous first lol.
And if you think marketing and this video is bullshit: god fucking help you, you poor bastard. XD
You’re in for a brutal life as a creative if you don’t know marketing.
Hiro Tadomatsu – 【cmyk!】 ～ 「 Umami 」– Super funky fresh future funk. This song is disgustingly smooth/sexy/relaxing/etc.
[MV] MOMOLAND (모모랜드) _ BBoom BBoom (뿜뿜) – I actually hate how much I like this song haha. It sounds kinda trashy like some early 2000’s pop song, BUT THAT CHORUS THO! It’s so damn catchy and I can’t help listening to the song over and over just for that addicting chorus. God help me. x_X
Hans Zimmer & Lisa Gerrard – Now We Are Free (Hoyaa Remix) – Trance + Gladiator ending song = Bliss. This song is a trance remix of the credits song from Gladiator. It’s so fucking beautiful… <3
Artificial Intelligence – Hooked On – I’ve been trying to get back into Drums and Bass lately and oh man did I hit the jackpot! It’s upbeat with some sweet piano, perfect. This is the kinda song that makes you wanna run straight up a mountain or jump off a cliff onto your dragon and fly away to see the world. ^_^
Black Desert OST – Calpheon South Forest – Awesome epic sounding song. This is the song you listen to when you visualize yourself becoming a master or building your kingdom. The rising feeling of those violins, phew! You can go places listening to music like this. (Also if you haven’t heard the Black Desert Online soundtrack, go check it out. It is perfect music to study, draw, or whatever to. It’s really god damn beautiful and chill music!!!)
Tomppabeats – Lonely But Not When You Hold Me – Another sweet beats man I found recently! He’s just like all the old school adult swim bump artists. Beautiful hip hop loops for drawing/studying/meditating to.
That’s it. Now I see maybe it is a good thing I only release these articles once a month. I don’t know, we’ll see. I’ll try again in a few weeks and see how many links I have.
Keep your momentum up doods! 🙂
