nowicantlose asked: I get really nervous when I draw for serious, and my work suffers for it. Penciling details and inking are aren't so bad, but getting a decent composition at the start is damn near impossible, and just knowing this makes it even harder to start. Do you have any advice on how to get over this? Any good relaxation techniques or the recipe for a miraculous panacea that's been in your family...
monoclecat asked: Really love the Vomitron soundtrack you plugged awhile ago. I still listen to it regularly, it's great for a morning commute! Do you know of any other artists who've done covers of NES classics like Contra and Double Dragon, that wouldn't mind sharing? :D
thebravecombo asked: WHY ARE YOU SO AWESOME, MAXIMO? D: Okay, so my other question is how did you meet the artists you know online? I feel like there are these awesome little circles of great comic artists who support each other... but they seem like they're just completely impenetrable to someone like me.
Anonymous asked: (Ah yes if y`don't mind I'd like a bit of help as well. You may post this too.) Lately most of my friends have become rather distant, conversations die really easily and all of a sudden I'm left with probably a total of 3 friends who I consistently speak and are close with. I don't have a lot of friends in the first place and classmates don't count, but what do I do about...
moophles asked: (can post) Sometimes I really depress myself art wise. I have this insane drive to create, but instead I find myself doing nothing for hours and I can't seem to motivate myself. I have great friends who encourage me...but I want to be able to do it on my own without someone having to tell me to do it to get me started. It's incredibly frustrating, what can I do to keep myself drawing...
dangel003 asked: (Not sure if you're still doing therapy sessions, but it's okay to post this) I'm an aspiring artist. I love drawing, but there are times when I get really depressed about it, like no one cares. My girlfriend (who is also an artist) tells me otherwise, but it doesn't feel that way. I'd like to do a comic series for Image, but I have doubts about that. I feel like I have...
enstasia asked: Okay, my biggest fear is not getting picked up as a writer for anything. EVER. Regardless of my good ideas or what good things I do write, I'm scared of going unnoticed or just "not in the right place at the right time". I'm almost a year out of undergrad, got 2 rejection letters for grad school, & still writing and learning screenplays. I work a minimum wage job in a call...
Romy-chan's tumblr!: During the start of this week... →
romy-chan: During the start of this week I wanted something to listen to while working on my project, and I found Tokyo Demons. Tokyo Demons is written by Lianne Sentar, Tsulala did the illustrations for this digital novel. Tsulala is also an artist I admire. The audio book is produced… GOOO!!
jooky: YES O_O
abbysucks asked: Just wanted to say that I think it's real sweet/nice of you to be so helpful toward all those people seeking you out for art advice or advice in general :)
bybystarlight asked: (I don't mind if you post this ^^) So...I'm absolutely TERRIFIED that I'm not going to be able to sustain being a freelance comicker. It's the only thing I'm good at, it turns out, even if I'm not even really good at it at all. Stress from student loans (didn't even get to finish artschool) and hospital bills and having really poor health add to that fear. I...
Anonymous asked: I ended up dating a long time friend that I secretly loved. He already had a girlfriend and didnt tell me..a year later i got pregnant and had his child. He's with me now, but he doesn't love me. He thinks I don't know but he's still in love with his ex.
Cynical kids be trippin' on the internet.
Anonymous asked: Okay biggest secret? I want to be like you dude, drawing art and meeting other artsy people that share your interests. Whenever I see my favorite artists posting stuff about webcomics or manga or animation, I feel happy for them. But I also die a little inside, because these people are living my dream life as a professional artist. you can post this if you want.
Anonymous asked: I used to have dreams where I'd kiss my brother and stuff. I'm an older sister and we grew up really close, but never that close, and I don't want to kiss him in real life or anything. I dunno, it's not that big a deal but it used to really stress me out.
defineprog asked: I have somewhat common blackouts, where in which I wake up spooning and fondling animals in the local zoo (mainly the ones with rough hides), the security threatening me with tazers. You may post this.
Confide in me,
Tell me your secrets! even the deepest darkest ones. Anonymous or not, up to you! (I won’t post them up unless you say it’s okay to.)
countupyoursins asked: What is a MAN?
allthisforabottledfish asked: Not a question, but I wanted to say that you're the bomb, and should indefinitely continue to be the bomb.
cafechan asked: Hello Maximo! How has your life been lately!
If you ask me stuff, I will probably answer.
But no drawings on these cause I’m not home!
Ubiktune: [UBI042] Various Artists — I Miss You -... →
kabakism: ロシアのChiptuneレーベル。ubiktuneからの少し変わったリリース。 国内外問わず愛され続けるNintendoの名作「MOTHER2」(海外題「Earthbound」)のサウンドから切り出した音を素材に新しい曲を作るというコンセプトのアルバム。 コラージュされた音はinstrumentとしてスムーズに使いこなされ、全く違和感の無い新たな音楽が出来ている。 ゲームからのサンプリングとはいえ、単なるワンショットのサウンドコラージュには留まらないユニークなアプローチを見せてくれた見事な作品だ。 また、完成した音楽ファイル以外に実際MOTHER2から切り出した音声ファイルもsoundfontとして配布されているので、興味があればそちらも見てみるといいだろう。 Omake: ...

kevinbolk: Fangirl #1: You don’t have any Homestuck art. Me: Sorry. Out of respect for the creator’s wishes and as a fellow webcomic artist, I won’t sell anything based on Homestuck. Fangirl#2: hey! That table over there has nothing but Homestuck stuff!! Fangirl#1: Squeeeee! *both flee for said table* Me: ……. *facepalm* Kevin Bolk, man of honor.
