      I'm probably going to sound like an ass here, but oh well--hopefully someone reading this can relate.

      Every once in a while I get a comment like, "I love your art! Can you teach me to draw?"

      While it's always flattering that someone thinks I'm skilled enough at drawing shit to make a qualified teacher, there's another part of me that's always a little--just a tiny bit--annoyed. Exasperated, maybe.
      There's something about that request that just bothers me. Although never intended, there's an implication that making art has some kind of trick or gimmick--that there's a secret all artists keep from the non-artists, something that I can communicate in a few sentences or a convenient drop-down list, should only someone ask nicely for it.

      I think we all know that's pretty much bullshit. There is no fast-track or neat little algorithm to becoming an artist, yet at the same time the answer is so simple it's almost mind-boggling: Just be one.

      I never took an art class unless we're counting the bare-bones requisite Art 1 course I had to take in high school, just to complete my schedule. I never had a teacher standing over my shoulder giving me pointers, telling me how and what to draw, and I've never consulted a tutorial or guide to draw anything ever. Ever.
      While I'm not saying these are bad things--classes and tutorials are full of useful, practical skills for artists to learn--what I'm trying to say is that the only person who can really, actually teach you to draw is yourself.

      Draw every day. Pay attention; use references (don't fucking trace shit); look for material and inspiration in everything you see. Try to draw things you don't think you're good at, and draw them until you can hardly stand to draw anything else. Keep challenging yourself, like it's another game.

      And love everything you draw. Even if it's a career, art is supposed to be fun, not a job.

      Lots of stuff going on with me lately, and some of it isn't even my fault!

      I have a cat living with me now. She's plenty old n' nice. Here's an emoticon to express my feelings on the subject:

      There's some podcast made by some assholes from some social group on which some bitch appears as a guest and talks about some stupid comic she made. And poop. You can check it out here.

      A Day-Care Centre is up and running for all your baby chupas. Thanks to SuperPriv4te for getting that started!
      If you missed your chance to adopt a lil' chupathingy of your own, I'd watch the group carefully in the near future. Just sayin'.

      Thanks to coolrx24 and mystery guest #3 for hanging out in livestream with me Thursday night (next time I stream I'll give some advance notice, promise.) I drew this fella for Sebastyan, a chupa-character of his own. With the color selections he gave me, I had to take care not to make him look like Tucker. Dubious success.

      Finally, special thanks to the over 100 watchers I now have! It's been an honor gettin' to know you guys and fun times, warm fuzzies, etc. Here's another emoticon just for y'all:


      And a chat quote to go on:

      --- Final Fantasy VII
      AgentTon: Poem from Cloud to Aeris at the time of her death.
      spiderflower: Dear Aerith
      spiderflower: You died
      spiderflower: It sucked
      spiderflower: I cried
      spiderflower: I hope you won't mind
      spiderflower: When we left you behind
      spiderflower: I gave you one for the road

      Tonight on Chupa Time, special guest Circa the cat sits on my mousepad. Y'all can watch me draw despite her.

      Queelez: Man, there is a movie I want to see.
      Queelez: Across the Universe.
      Queelez: I saw a preview and it was like...
      Queelez: Like having sex with your girlfriend while high during the Vietnam war, while the Beatles were playing on the radio.

      --- Harry Potter
      maggiekarp: Mom: You know, I was just thinking... Kreacher, yeah? Horrible creature, right?
      maggiekarp: Me: Yeah
      maggiekarp: Mom: Why didn't they order him into a little box to stay there?
      maggiekarp: Me: Hermione would have complained
      maggiekarp: Mom: Fuck Hermione

      Sancdar: oh god i hate wiccans :(
      maggiekarp: Do what you will but harm none
      maggiekarp: Mom: WHAT'S THE POINT OF BEING A WITCH THEN?

      Part of my getting-home-from-work routine is turning on the computer and then going to use the can while it's booting up, often timed so that I get to hear the Windows starting jingle layed over the melody of a flushing toilet. Fun fact.

      --- late for Valentine's Day, but, uh... here's something
      maggiekarp: fluff sex would end up looking like... i dunno, puppy sex or something
      maggiekarp: or that adorable accidental Pikachu hump I drew in my younger years
      Myshu: How do you accidentally hump pikachu
      maggiekarp: SHUT UP MOM
      maggiekarp: JUST SHUT UP

      maggiekarp: 2 vwels
      Myshu: MK your keyboard is never going to pass a sobriety test at this rate
      maggiekarp: fck

      --- that's a burn
      DK: Listen I don't like to brag about Ice Burns, but this one was pretty good
      DK: Chris: "How's that candy going down, Adam?"
      DK: Adam: "MMMmuuugh it is good"
      DK: Kathleen: I've heard men who had blowjobs and sounded less satisfied
      DK: Me: .... that's because you blew them, Kathleen

      Dear game industry: I know it's some kind of comfortable middle-ground for developers and publishers, but please stop releasing remakes of your best old-gen games exclusively to portable consoles. Here in 2012 most of us do have consoles that can download games and play them on our TVs. It's incredible, I know.

      Mozz: jack thompson is right, GTA is bad for you :D
      Mozz: San Andreas has increased my usage of the word "nigga" roughly 700%

      Queelez: 1776 is up.
      Mozz: hell yeah
      Queelez: ...If Mozz knows what I'm talking about, he has become so much more awesome
      Mozz: no but I can fake it
      Queelez: Bastard.

      Mozz: if you had to choose between
      Mozz: NIPPLES
      Mozz: and
      Mozz: cockssssssssss
      Mozz: which would you take?
      Mozz: i ask because you seem terribly excited by the mention of both

      I wanna thank everybody who showed up to my livestream yesterday and got to bear with my 30-year-old-chainsmoking-waitress voice to hang out and have a lil' fun. Here's what came out of it. And a consolation smiley for the rest of you guys: smiley12.gif
      I'll probably do a stream every few weeks, just to spice up the routine.

      I am testing a livestream this afternoon! Right now, that is.

      Nothing special today--just experimenting with painting and running a stream on dual monitors. Perhaps drawin' some chupas 'n shiz.

      If anyone wants to hang out with Nero and I for an hour or so, he's drawing boobies in his livestream channel right here, right nao.

      (I might run a super-late stream later, since I got my new computer up and running.)

      edit: Good times were had. Thanks paguh and Nero!

      Today's speedpaint took less than an hour, which is pretty speedpainty for me. Can't get too much practice drawing warthogs. Only Nero is going to know what this might be for.

      --- get back in the kitchen ocean
      maggiekarp: q chat do I wanna watch The Little Mermaid?
      Myshu: It's actually been so long since I've seen that, I forgot how it ends
      Myshu: ...and begins
      Myshu: And most of the middle
      maggiekarp: It's about a little girl
      maggiekarp: that goes into spaaaace
      maggiekarp: and fucks a stranger
      maggiekarp: and her dad seems overly concerned for a dude that's got like, 50 goddamn daughters
      Myshu: He can't help playing favorites :(
      BahamutChris: All I remember is that at the end she's not a mermaid anymore and someone once gave a speech about how the priest pitches tent in his pants at this one scene near the end and showed us evidence and that's about it
      Myshu: I'm not even sure what the moral of that's supposed to be
      Myshu: "If you wish hard enough to be something you're not you can be it"
      Jerm: Men will only like you if you shut up

      Drew: imagine a fairly bland, small city Myshu
      Mozz: oh
      Mozz: Fremont
      Drew: then imagine the roads are filled with scorpions
      BahamutChris: ... Here
      Drew: and the women walk around with their pants around their ankles
      BahamutChris: Not here
      Mozz: back to Oakland
      Drew: and terrifying howls of despair are heard to utter from their vaginas
      Drew: that's roughly how Wellington is
      Drew: oh and everything closes at like
      Drew: 10am Saturday
      BahamutChris: Geez, what a hole.
      Mozz: arthur wellsleys corpse is somewhere rolling over at the insult of such a shitty town being named after him and his title.
      Drew: if he were reincarnated today
      Drew: he'd wander through the town
      Drew: beating the inhabitents with his penis

      --- Neon Genesis Evangelion
      maggiekarp: dammit Evangelion
      maggiekarp: I can't listen to Ode to Joy without thinking of dudes fucking

      My internet access has been sparse this week because I've moved house (woo bachelorette pad?) and have only been able to check this site from work. I get hooked back up on Monday, but let that not get in the way of humiliating myself, courtesy of past-quotes:

      maggiekarp: what is the cutest thing?
      PikeBot: MK I have a formula
      PikeBot: that can determine the cutest thing
      Myshu: ahhhh I cut my cunt ahhhhh

      maggiekarp: get thee to the cunt doctor
      maggiekarp: shit, hope she didn't do anything too bad
      Myshu: Okay back, TMI over
      PikeBot: Myshu what happened
      Myshu: This is just, absurdly dumb
      maggiekarp: You're not gonna give us cring-worthy details?
      maggiekarp: you... you're naked now, aren't you?
      Myshu: n
      maggiekarp: (damn)
      Myshu: See, I
      Myshu: wiped too hard
      maggiekarp: ...
      Myshu: And need to not trim my fingernails to points
      PikeBot: ...
      maggiekarp: oh
      maggiekarp: ouch
      PikeBot: You're right.
      PikeBot: That IS pretty dumb.
      Myshu: I told you
      PikeBot: Although my girlfriend used to have hella problems like that with regards to masturbation, because she REFUSED to do anything with her nails at all
      PikeBot: ex-girlfriend, that is
      maggiekarp: I think it's funny that you ran to the computer first
      maggiekarp: though now I'm looking at my long nails in fear
      Myshu: Yeah it's weird how priorities work out
      maggiekarp: "shit I'm bleeding I'm bleeding I GOTTA TELL THE INTERNET"
