The Importance Of Drawing Tablets

I personally do not have a drawing tablet... but i want one desperately! A drawing tablet allows you to share your artwork easily on the internet. It also leads for better erasing. Have you ever drawn something in pencil and messed up? If you had then when you mess up you have to erase. When you erase there are always slight lines in the background and it obscures the art. With a drawing tablet, the erasing is seamless. You can also do shading and other cool things with the right software. Photoshop is an excellent thing for doing shades and other cool effects but it also lets you draw a simple cartoon. Overall, a drawing tablet and software can make you either a funny or stunning artist without flaw. Given the proper skill.

So I got Into Drawing...

 So recently I have begun drawing pretty mediocre things but I have decided that I really like drawing no matter how bad they turn out. And so I may be posting some of my drawings here depending on how interested I get with this blogging thing. I think every artist has a style and mine is animation. But I’m too lazy to make an animation so I just draw cartoons. Of what you may ask? Well I make fan drawings of Homestuck (homestuck can be found at So hopefully I’ll make some good drawings and be able to share them with you as soon as possible. Also, if you are already familiar with homestuck already, my favorite troll to draw is Karkat (:

A Look into the Past of Gaming

A Look into the Past of Gaming
                All the time you surf the web (especially ) you see people saying things like “this brings back so many memories” or “the 90’s were awesome” followed by a picture of an old Nintendo product like a NES or a GameCube and honestly… I LOVE it. It is such a warm feeling that some people out there really care about what was cool a long time ago AND what’s cool today. To me, people who don’t lose their passion for something are really amazing. I was born in the late 90’s so I didn’t really get to play any of that stuff except a Sega Genesis. But those who did can often still remember how fun it was then and how fun it still is. So for those who can love in the past and present, Thank You.

Welcome To My Blog

Welcome To My Blog

                At my blog, the main thing I will be talking about will be things that I like. I like Grunge music, A LOT of video games, Climbing and running. I’m 13 years old, my name is Derek and a lot of people think that I’m weird because I don’t like stupid things like drama, LMFAO, or Skrillex. Instead of these things I like Nirvana, Pearl Jam and The Killers. (All bands if you weren’t aware). Also, my favorite Nirvana song frequently changes but right now it’s probably “Lithium” or “Scoff”. My favorite thing to climb is pine trees. But occasionally I will go mountain climbing. I definitely like it more than running! But running is fun to me as well. However, I don’t just like running on the street, I like to run where there might be obstacles. Like in the woods where there’s logs and trees to run around. I guess it could be called “Free running”. I guess that some of the things that I hate are things that are scary… I’m an easily scared person and there are some SCARY things on the internet. So that is a basic rundown of everything that is on going to be on my blog. I hope to see you here again soon!
