Famous Failures

I stumbled upon this video a long time ago and it honestly made me feel a lot better.

"If you’ve never failed, you’ve never lived."

I could not fit everyone mentioned in the video in this post so be sure to give the video a look.

WATCH IT HERE

As someone who fails regularly, I find such comfort in this! 

I like this a lot.  My college creative writing teacher refused to read the revisions I had done on my stories because he said he knew I was a B student and that wasn’t going to change. 

Stephen King’s college writing teacher didn’t think he was very good.  My college writing class thought my writing was “babyish” and “stupid fairy tales.”  The original teacher didn’t care for me, but she developed medical problems and was replaced by David Bradley, Jr., who made it plain he believed I had what it took.  I don’t do writing classes or groups anymore, but I’m still in touch with Bradley, one of the finest writers I’ve ever read.

i am writing a story with a main character, who happens to be trans, however… i’m cis. i don’t know… i do my research with dedication and respect but sometimes i get those little voices in my head saying: you are being ignorant.

self-doubt is so dreadful.

i think all i gotta do is… educate myself in the best way possible.

This art kinda sums up how i’m feeling right now.

Since I started practicing watercolors, I wanted to redo a painting that I did a few years ago… it was a girl with a rose growing from her eye and stuff. Anyway… I did it, however, instead of a random girl, i decided to use one of original characters. I could say that i’m pretty satisfied with my decision. And of course, I got some inspiration from Agnes Cecile. She’s amazing, and I simply love the way she plays with this kind of medium.

materials

Watercolor (from Pentel)
Watercolor pencils (from Faber-Castell)
A4 paper (300g/m²)
Uni POSCA (0.7mm)
Brushes (from Keramik and Tigre)

all i feel is… my eyes are burning so good! and… yeah, i need help guys. i think i should tone down the bright colors and get rid of the upper clouds. It’s a pity, ‘cause i really liked painting them…

"To you the leaves
That fell from trees
To you their life has come to leave”,
Of The Trees — Mree.

Another remake. And I’m really enjoying these adventures with traditional media. But I guess i’ll try to get back to digital media as soon as possible…

As soon as I put my hands on a better camera, i’ll upload some better shots from this painting. It was the first time that I used real acrylics, so… the problem is: I don’t think I wanna stop using it. Such a nice media. Maybe I’ll change my mind when I use oils.

I’m also posting some photos of me and my friend, Lua, working on our paintings. I was at her office, so… did you notice she loves cats, right? I love her paintings of cats.

Anyway, nice to talk with you again!
