"Why's it full of naked people?" = My life.

I got detention once for drawing a naked lady (in a normal life-drawing type pose, course they wouldn't get that). Growing up as an artist was hard sometimes XD

Detention? @HVoice: Luckily, detention doesn't exist here in Brazil.

So much understanding Atty. People just... -sighs-

I used to doodle all the time, and I've been there in high school. Seriously, you draw from your view and then they act like you've deliberately drawn them in a way that they don't like.

people have tried to grab my notebook, or draw in it. so i stabbed them w/ my mechanical pencil.

also my biggest pet peeve is when people touch my drawings. idk if they've never picked up a pencil, but that shit smudges. and many a drawings have been ruined this way, and many a fingers have been ruined in a different way.

@Shaede The Black Eevee: IKR!!! And they look at you all funny the moment you ask them not to poke the pencil drawing and you try to explain about pencil lead being able to smudge easily but they don't believe you or they think what they did wouldn't do anything to ruin the drawing.

@Shaede The Black Eevee: I remember this one time when I was younger I had gotten the shading of the eye in a drawing I did just PERFECT XD. It was a small drawing so it was really hard. I left for a few minutes and I come back. I didn't notice at first but someone had made the pupil a solid black. I was devastated! It took hours to get that right, i found out it was my step dad that did it (not out of malicious intent he just wanted to help). I was bawling saying to him not do to stuff like that because the eye i did was how i wanted it and it took HOURS!
I did redo the eye but I could never recreate it.

You don't need to be an artist to realize or agree that people are jerks.

Because they are.

Wait-a-minute... Wait a minute...

... I dunno about you but id think anything that can breath fire by sneezing is not what you want staring face first at any range into your sketch pad...

Could be worse! People could get those people who go "hey can you draw hentai for me?" Or alternatively "Wow, you're really good, do you draw hentai?

That got deep
May 15th, 2018, 3:56 am
Boyyyy I've been there.

One time I left my sketchbook behind to go to the bathroom, and some "joker" had taken it along with ALL my pencils and eraser and had thrown it in the trash.

Left my sketchbook in a class once in middle school. At the time I was very into drawing pokemon too so its fitting that I'd be talking about this here. Anyway, I didn't think that much of it and just got it the next day. Someone had gone through it and (very poorly) drew dicks in all the pokemons' mouths. I managed to save most of the drawing, but because of how hard the dick drawer had pressed down on the paper there are still imprints on the pictures. Never quite got over it.

Also went to the bathroom once in a high school class and when I came back someone had gotten my journal and had scribbled all through it and trashed the story that I had been working on. I stopped writing after that until I got to college.

@littlekitsune: There's a special place in hell for their kind. Man, I would've destroyed that school looking for the culprit.

Atty= me when I'm drawing my comics
so relatable.
May 17th, 2018, 11:30 am
I know the pain, Atty.
Like, damn, how do some people get the nerve to just snatch your sketchbook and flip through it without asking. That's like, stealing someone's diary and reading it, if their deepest, innermost, and most private thoughts were all automatically printed on the pages... and then shouting all of those thoughts to the world.
Or something like that. Anyway, it's a huge violation. Things only artists will understand.

On a different note, George is probably going to make it difficult for Atty to exeggcute his cunning plan and steal those pokemon. Or has he maybe forgotten...?


(on a related note, I think the level of anxiety this comic is able to induce in me for its characters is a shining tribute to its quality. Keep up the awesome work, H0ly!)

I was blessed to never have any of those things happen, but I still get uncomfortable when people watch me art because of the pressure. I don't want them to see all of the times I have to erase because I didn't get the shape right, or see how crappy my sketches look before I clean them up, or the inevitable "WHY DOESN'T IT HAVE EYES" and I have to be like "BECAUSE I HAVEN'T DRAWN THEM YET WILL YOU PLEASE BE PATIENT" which of course adds to my anxiety that I'm not drawing fast enough to entertain them. So yeah, prefer if people didn't watch me while I draw unless I am specifically drawing a quick something for them as a gift or purchase. XD;

Yeah... I can't draw around people anymore because of the above reasons. I left to go to the bathroom and my sister started flipping through my sketchbook. She found a page of my diary, some illustrated emo poetry, and some figure drawings that she assumed were naked people (despite being in just regular poses). So now my sketchbooks don't leave my room. I just lock my room door and stay there for a few hours and draw pokemon while my family wonders what happened to their child. Self expression means suffering, apparently.

Ug, I can relate to this. Especially the "people drawing all over it" part.

Whenever I was in the 7th grade, I liked to take paper to school to practice drawing, put concepts to paper, etc. At first it wasn't a big deal, but it was a school that literally had every grade up to 8th in it, and the building wasn't all that big.

Eventually, the younger kids started noticing. They'd come to me at recess and ask for paper, so we'd all end up just drawing together for the fun of it. They liked to show me what they made, would hang around me and just start drawing, or ask for tips. It was kind of endearing.

Then there was this one 5th grader.

Nice boy, but for some reason it never quite got through to him that you shouldn't draw on other people's pictures. If I left my art just laying around, I'd come back and find spikes drawn all whatever I just drew. He thought they made my pictures "cooler."

I told him to stop. He said he would. Then he'd do it again.

I ended up hiding my drawing supplies from him because, for some reason, he just couldn't help himself. If the drawing was just poking out of a hiding spot, I'd come back--bam. Spikes. Even getting reprimanded by a teacher wouldn't stop him long-run. This went on for a whole school year.

He had a younger brother who was into drawing, but he never drew on my stuff... To this day, aside from what he said, I've still no idea why this 5th grade kid was so obsessed with putting spikes on my pictures. So yeah. I can feel for the sentiment. XD

Oooooh, that pain is all too real. He forgot to add about people stealing the sketchpad, tearing up the artwork or using it to mop up something.

mood I hate people watching over my shoulder while I draw- even on my computer; though oddly streaming doesn't bother me- at least until I get the "Who're you drawing; Where's the eyes; Why are they bald; No pupils makes them look so creepy"...
On the rare occasion that I did let someone flip through my sketchpad cuz they asked nicely, their reactions of "This is weird..." or some-such turned me off to never let ppl look at my sketchpads again. I do know the pain of having people draw all over your drawings though- which is why I learned fast to hide my drawings or take said sketchpad with me if I left the room. Never- ever- just leave it behind, too dangerous.

The worst part is that it's normally my family that does that shit.
Constantly judging and never just leaving me be. Most of my friends are pretty respectful, even the ones that aren't artists. But it's my family that always wants to watch. Always wants to interrupt. Always needs to say that they prefer more "realistic" styles or whatever. Making me feel uncomfortable for just drawing characters as a couple.
Ugh, it's the worst. And 'cuz they're my family, I can't ever escape them.
I seriously lose a lot of motivation to draw or do anything creative when I'm in their house.

this is the most relatable comic page ive ever seen in my entire life
April 2nd, 2019, 3:16 pm
Since I was always paranoid and over-protective, I never let people look at my drawings, including my family. But I swear when people at school expect me to draw everything perfect or draw them... Ugh. Go draw it yourself, asshole. It should be pretty obvious to them by now the reason I don't try to make friends with them is because I don't give a damn for their existence. Why? Because I home schooled for a large portion of my life, literally EVERYONE knows that. It still confuses me why they think they can befriend me, if they just want me to worship them. Mother fuckers.
