  • Mood: Artistic
  • Listening to: My Conscience
Everyone, I haven't done a journal in a while but my conscience was telling me I had to write this down so here it is.

I was at TV Tropes reading about a hospiced girl who saw the movie Up after a Pixar employee mailed a DVD of it to her. This was before the movie came out on DVD; the employee made the DVD and sent it to her without making it a publicity stunt. Pixar made her wish come true just for the sake of it. This made me feel sad since I paid attention to how the girl was hospiced, and I imagined a few things of great meaning after that.

I learned I could tell my kids and grandkids the story of how I recently started an effort to improve all of my problems to become mature, independent, and fully capable of behaving and functioning like everyone else. I stopped doing compulsions, started practicing hygiene commonly, stopped stimming (playing with my hands), stopped eating sweets, and started an ongoing effort to follow my dreams and goals in the entertainment industry and become someone I never was before and do the things I always could have done but never did. I was unwilling to make this change earlier, but I'm glad I'm doing it now. I am 20 years old now and I'm glad I'm making this change. This story will inspire my family's future generations, perhaps the world, to make a change for themselves for the better like I did.

Another thing I learned was something from TV Tropes about art: art is not making you feel good. It's making you feel. I did not initially understand what it meant, but I figured it meant feeling for all that is good and for lessons that make these good things possible. I remembered that most of my ideas I have for entertainment media are thematic; they have lessons and meanings to them. And while I won't give examples, I will tell you it's true that my work is thematic. So my art, as I leaned, is about making people feel for good things and the lessons making them possible. As a creator, I encourage all other prospective creators not to do work for money, but for five things with this mindset I have: the critics, the industry, the consumers, the art, and the fans. That's who I will serve as a creator.

So, I hope you learn from this. And maybe get inspired.


KombatMaster94's Profile Picture
United States
I am an aspiring comic book artist and writer. I have been longing to create comics for a long amount of time as my interest in comics grew over the years. I have an account on CBR as Marvel94 and after getting various bits of advice, I have officially decided to get serious on drawing and writing comics. Joining DeviantArt is the first step to that. I will be posting various pieces of artwork here, but I need full support because I plan to actually both write and draw various comic book characters both new and original from me. However, I won't be making webcomics. I plan to actually make printed material professionally and make a living off of it for the sake of my passion. By the way, I am also planning to make video games, movies, and TV cartoons, so I will draw characters both existing and original from those mediums. Keep in mind that I am 17 going on 18 and I am still a high school student, so I may or may not post drawings in a set time with my busy schedule. I will let you know when I have posted a drawing. I will be drawing scenes, pin-ups, and hopefully pages. I don't entirely know how to draw pages, but if someone knows anything about that and other aspects of comic book creation, please let me know about an accessible source of information like a website or a video on how to draw comic book pages. If I do make pages, I will make them my own scenes and not a part of a story unless I decide otherwise. Even then, there won't be webcomics from me. I hope you'll like my art and wish me luck through this big path to success.
