Random from blood stein fanart

featured fanart

Speedpaint Tridute- Dr. Vlad by Lilith-the-5th BloodStain Halloween fanart by OlwenArt
the Webcomic relief is a series I love and religiously follow on youtube and my comic got their turn in reviewing! I cannot even describe how I feel right now!!

Webcomic Relief - Bloodstain by Toxodentrail
I honestly didn't think Riiser would like BloodStain let alone ever review it, specifically because it is not exactly plot driven, so... yeah O_o
I am ecstatic :happybounce: :happybounce: 


I wanted to share my view on a few things in this review, so If you haven't seen it yet I suggest you do because spoilers are ahead. ;)
__________________________________________________________________________________________________

The title
The reason why I made the title Blood Stain and not Blood Stein was .. well obviously because there is a play on words involved, but specifically because this is a comic about a girl who we follow through and discover more about Vlad as it goes on, and her impression is what we get as information as well.
Hence her impression of him was not the best. xD Vlad Stein-- Blood Stain
It is kind of an ironic twisted title that only shows you what is on the surface, but if you dare to look deeper you may just discover something amazing that could turn your view around very much like this comic has a creepy cover that makes you think its a horror but POOF surprise! its actually comedy.

At least this was my intention, but since this is only the early chapters I don't blame him at all for assuming this was about Vlads childhood bullied experience since it was hinted as one of the rare moments we know of him and it stood out as important information. But more on that will be resolved in further chapters-- we got 7 more to go :P 

that is all :D
oh! and I'm sure many of you want to tell him how he is not the only one complaining about typos XDDDDDD

wow, you all must be thinking.. what kind of a journal is that.. did not expect THAT here...

well.. yeah.. 
People who saw that SDCC panel video from last year already know that I was stumbling over my words. It's weird because I prepared for that speech and yet when the moment came, my mind completely froze.
Now, this is not the only reason why I'm asking. For quite some time now, I was meaning to do some painting videos and upload to my youtube but the moment I click record I start feeling anxious and it results in me making so many rookie mistakes and well.. I end up stopping the video entirely.(I am not streaming, mind you, so nobody can see my video until I upload it.. but yea... I just can't seem to relax and it is really annoying)

I know the only way to fight this is through repetition, which means doing things you are not comfortable with until you become okay with it, but what would be the best and fastest way? 

For quite some time now I have been thinking a good start would be to try and do some lets play videos, and try and read every note i get in the game out loud because this might also help me connect my brain with my vocal cords again XD or.. I dunno.. do you people have any suggestions? or experiences with this similar matter? I would love to hear those. 

I think streaming my art on twitch would be an overkill in my mental state at the moment I might completely melt down lol
_____________________________________________________

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who gave advices, support and experiences on this matter, I am very sorry I can't reply to everyone individually but I have read every single comment and they gave me a lot of insight and different approaches and I am eager to try them all out and practice.  
I am very thankful for the comments of encouragement as well, those helped a lot, specifically because when I write posts like this, or whenever I try to say something, I have a constant feeling that nobody really wants to know what I have to say, so why bother anyway.
So I usually try to keep it as short and to the point as possible, but then it happens I fail to say my point at all XD also if the post is in written form it usually feels very dry and uninteresting.

so right.. to the point...

At the moment my practice involves in me reading stuff out loud to Stjepan as I play (poor guy), and I stumble on words like crazy XDDD the other practice I am doing is just talking to people in mic as I play destiny. so its a start. I just have to keep pushing until i feel more comfortable doing this.

I found the power pose advice very interesting so I will try it next when I'm out talking to people in public. Pretending you are someone much more confident seems interesting as well.
For all the rest, just preparation.And breathing, oh yes! that helps a ton, thank you for that advice.
Knowing your public comment also made me feel at ease a little, because naturally when you are presenting something to an interested public then it all may seem much easier. San Diego panel was a mix of people who really weren't there for my announcement, so I think that was what partially froze me up. I was under the impression that I have to present my material flawlessly so that people would be interested in what I have to say.

Another interesting thing I rediscovered recently was  that when I was around college age, I used to do painting tutorials on my other dA account to help and share new things me and my husband discovered in photoshop, and it was kind of aimed at newer people who only started using it (like I too was at the time)
Those naturally had flaws but I did not see those then, I was just happy to share what I knew. Then came a time where self doubt kicked in to the point of shutting me down, and tutorials stopped. shame that. It would be cool to get into that again, even though my method of work changed immensely.

well, that was a long rambly post.

If I ever decide to post any videos of lets plays or just drawing with a voice over, I will post the links here so you guys can see me embarrass myself and we can all have a good laugh XDDD

I would love to take a moment out of my limited life span as a human being to tell you that this piece of visual literature is the very definition of fucking incredible, that is all.
