In making a piece, whether it be a statue, a drawing, a writing, or anything it could be, one's state have to remain stable and focused.
It might be really different, but in my view, it's just similar to the way of a great samurai or the balance of harmony and focus in kung fu.
But still....Why can't I draw clothes well?!
Whenever I tried to draw threads
It turns into wires
Whenever I tried to draw cloth
It turns into metal plates
Whenever I tried to draw hats
It turns into helmets
And whenever I tried to draw buttons and accessories
In the end, it turns into gears and weapons
Seriously, how to draw clothes that's good enough to see?
I tried to imitate some clothes and modify it myself, but...
Do I need to repeat it again?
So, this year's lesson would be clothes
As simple as I could is fine, as long as it doesn't look like an old, plain towel put on someone's body as an outfit "orz
Gotta learn things in a slow and steady motion.
I also have troubles in drawing females
Well, you see, most of what I draw is what I have touched
For men, it'll be fine, as I myself "have" those, you get the idea.
Then to draw female characters... Do I need to explain it?
As an otaku, I always been told by my otaku friends I am a strange one.
(To be said strange even by the nation the world always deny, how do you think you feel?)
Why? Well, world's general view of otakus, especially the males, are the ones who collect female figurines, some sort of that, until his "otaku room" feels like a girl anime lover's room. I don't know where this kind of general view came from, but that's how I see those people thinks.
In my case, it's almost entirely different. Though I've stated myself an otaku, those people said I'm just a hobbyist. Simple; because I seek for the mechas instead. Even when I'm looking for a female figure, all that took my interest is going to be the weapon she wield, or the truth that she's non-human, always a gynoid, for this case. An otaku's room and a hobbyist's room is slightly different, which is sometimes hard to notice, if
the case is just like mine, otherwise they'll say even ridiculous things for what otakus should be compared to; girls. Damn those people, they're just too shallow.
Anyway, the point is, I'm not a hobbyist. I'm an otaku, freshly realized by myself. Well, maybe you can compare me to a hobbyist, but I'm still saying I'm an otaku. Could be proved by the truth that I defend the otakus whenever they're called like, maniac. I can't defend the hobbyist, since I'm not one, and if I do, I'm not the one to talk; I'll have no idea what should I said. But as an otaku, I have more than plenty to defend my brethren. Proud to be one's actually pretty hard
