do you use any computer software for your drawing?

Hello! Not really. Sometimes a tablet. Other than that just paper and pen and iPhone and photoshop.

hi!

I’ve had the blog for about 1 & a half years. I didnt really do anything other than posting my stuff onto this tumblr.. i guess people just related to my works and i’m really thankful for that.

etc is actually my side blog and my main blog is its-laundry-day. there isnt any personal stuff honestly just feminist posts and things i like or daily news and so on… etc is probably the most personal site for me. (:

Any tips or ideas to keep people from showing your work as their own? Does it make you regret showing your work on a site like tumblr where it can be "taken" so easily? Thanks, hope you're well xx

Honestly I can’t stop people from posting drawing(s) of mine. I source my images, I disabled right click .. so on so forth. There’s a lot of ways to save an image and reposting has already happened.

I don’t have any tips or ideas at all.
I could say sign your work but i don’t do that much myself…

Reposters cause me some distress because it takes away the number of views i could have gotten and when reposted art gets like more than 100,000 notes while my original source gets only 400 i sometimes wonder if i should have tagged better or what i’m doing wrong.
BUT I have never regretted posting my work on tumblr. I’ve got great followers and I think it makes me feel really good and comforted that there are people who can relate to me. I’ve got some messages from followers about how they’ve found the source (which is me) after so long and it makes me feel really good!! that someone actually can recognise my style/ works and want to find the source.

anyway, I’m doing good and i’m sorry I havent been posting much stuff recently because i’ve been busy with work and packing/moving to London.
thanks for asking! i hope you’re well too!

i cringe when i think of all the mistakes i&#8217;ve made.

I do. But highly inactive. @etcdrawings

What type of pens do you use? And do you have any advice on drawing?

PILOT V5 FOREVER

just keep drawing. that’s the simplest thing i can say. i don’t even follow it myself because sometimes drawing is emotional and it is hard and also because excuses.

but keep drawing. don’t stop just draw. don’t even think, just draw.
draw whatever you want, draw ugly shit, draw fine ass shit, draw curly lines, draw swirly faces just draw draw draw.

but of course, even i am struggling.

So I&#8217;ve been really busy and stressed out for a while.

Because:
Just a few weeks ago I received an offer to take up a communication course in illustrations. in London. I thought a lot about leaving Singapore, leaving my current psych, amount of work, my mental state&#8230;
but my mom pushed me towards it and&#8230;
I accepted, and things are moving along alright. I tendered my resignation so I&#8217;ve got 2 more weeks at work, my visa preparation is coming along.. soon hopefully.
But anyway, I&#8217;m going to LONDON!!!!! to do my masters!!!! and I&#8217;m really excited about that and also partly because it might move me closer to being an illustrator professionally and it&#8217;s a great opportunity to move around and network and do new projects and hopefully not to disappoint my parents anymore.
Things are going good and I am hoping i&#8217;ll be okay and I&#8217;m really happy right now! You guys!!! I am so glad that this tumblr is around and you are all so so great!!!!!

So I’ve been really busy and stressed out for a while.
