71: That's not the first time I've heard "In the rain", it just sounds like awfully high on the risk list for pneumonia, all that huffin and puffin and hot bodies vs cold rain, ARE YOU BEING A GIRL HERE AND CHOOSING THIS BECAUSE IT'S A ROMANTIC IMAGERY?
Warning: The following rant contains a lot of swearing from a person who is bitter over things.
Usually I will save the rants for my personal blog, but I honestly want to know how the fuck people do not understand the difference between tracing and referencing.
A REFERENCE is an image or…
sometimes i trace certain parts of an image i cant get proper.
by your argument though, i suppose if i want to learn i should NEVER TRACE EVER
so next time i try to learn a new language, i’ll never repeat anything anyone says and only focus on making my own sentences. Which is sensible, because only repeating what others say can make me look stupid in front of a native.
next time i work on a DIY project, I’ll never use the step-by-step photos, only the descriptions, and I’ll also make sure that the only photo i use to make sure i’m doing things properly is the finished image in the back of the instruction manual.
Yeah, THAT’LL show me how to do it right.
>implying referencing isnt the equivalent to repeating words
>implying referencing isnt the equivalent to following a How To guide
>implying referencing and tracing are the same
i bet this person took forever learning their way how to do art refusing to trace or take any easier routes and now they’re rip-fucking-pissed that others are learning more easily.
I imagine the better you think you are, the more angry you’ll be over others taking easy routes to get where you are, so they must think they shit gold or something at the amount of anger over nothing here
they’re basically saying “UGH HOW DARE PEOPLE LEARN FROM DIRECT REFERENCE INSTEAD OF IMPLIED REFERENCE”
like it’s “completely evil” to trace, which is fuckin silly like they even said people defend it by saying “but my hand learns how to place lines and stuff” and they respond like “HAHAHA YEAH RIGHT thats so full of shit” or whatever
I can’t believe I’m actually getting into this. But uh, Alex. You can learn from not tracing. I believed the only time I traced was when I was first starting to draw. I was very young. And when I say young I mean 4 or 5. It didn’t help. All it did was taught me to redraw pictures someone else drew. When I got much older, I started coping other pictures, which actually taught me a hell of a lot more than tracing did. While I vehemently oppose tracing and believe it is NEVER acceptable in art, (only in cases of animation and graphic designs) I can’t even say its a good learning technique. I’ve been accused of tracing before, and it pissed me off at the time because why would I waste my time tracing someones art? I rather learn from discovery than copy someone else’s work. Also Alex: Stop using unrelated and far stretched examples to relate to your arguments, they make you look like an ass, clutching for straws. Learning a language is no where close to utilizing your skill and talent. Following instructions is not tracing over a drawing.
actually you can learn from tracing too, from my own experience. if im having a hard time drawing something (usually a hand), ill find a ref of a hand, trace over it, and then keep redrawing that traced version until i get it right. tracing helps me see what it should look like in drawn form because i sometimes have a hard time just looking at a photo ref and seeing how to apply it drawn form

Do you have any good toy cleaning advice? I think I remember you posting something a while back and I cant find it :T
I post my plush cleaning advice on pkmncollectors alot so haha
basically, if the plush can’t be hand washed and needs an entire clean, what i do is put it in a pillow case, tie the pillow case up, and put it in the washing machine with a bit of soap and on a gentle, cold cycle. then i put it in the dryer at low heat, while still in the pillow case. this method works pretty well for me and ive never had it destroy a plush or mess up the fabric. just make sure the toy doesnt have any holes in it before you put it in, because if it has a hole, the stuffing can escape.
when i hand wash a toy to get a little stain off or something, i just use a damp paper towel with a little bit of mild liquid hand soap or dish soap
if its too big for the washing machine, you can try popping a small hole and removing the stuffing and just washing the fabric in the washing machine. i wouldnt suggest this unless you’re decent at sewing. im awful at sewing so i cant do this haha
