ey, way to go! half marathon’s a steep goal but you can do it if you train well.

Thanks! I’ve run half marathon twice before, but that was like 5 years ago when I was in super shape. My advantage this time around is that I now actually enjoy running, and I hope my old shape isn’t too far away ;)

Some warmup sketches I ended up doing lineart for 

Here in Denmark the spring weather is getting nicer and nicer every week, so I have really been getting back into running - I’m aiming for a half marathon at the Fjordmarathon in September :D

freelancerraiko asked: Good response. Better response: They should do it for their own meaning and that their success should be defined by what they accomplished rather than what others recognize. You do realize that popularity is more or less random right? I mean there are people who draw better than others and are never known, and people who draw like shit and get applauded. Really there is no success so long as it's based on popularity as a deciding factor.

If by 'more or less' you mean ‘ranging from not at all to completely’, then yes.

If something seems random to you, it’s most often because your model is too simple. Popularity is not random, it’s just a function of more variables than you are considering. Luck is only one of them.

For your artwork to get popular online, you have to consider a long list of other variables: audience, timing, appeal, expectations, technical skill, networking skill, originality, humour, message, relatability, reputation, context, relevance, ease of consumption - and these are just the things I can think of from the top of my head.

Someone can have all the technical skill in the world, but if they don’t understand how to reach an audience, then they’re simply not going to become popular. You might wish it was different, but it’s how it is. Furthermore, there are more things to enjoyability than technical finesse of something. No one gets applauded for no reason at all. There is no need to be salty about it, and there is definitely no need to go and tell people how they should or should not define their own success.

freelancerraiko asked: Fun comic. Really fun comic. Sooooooooooooo....what about the people who do fail or don't get any attention?

They get up, learn from their mistakes, and try again.

Success is never assured, and I never claimed it was, but in order to get a shot for it, you have to go for it. It may take two, ten, many tries to get it right, but the point is that you have to try.

Success won’t come to those who sit idly and wait for it.

And just before I go to bed, I hit a milestone here too.

Combined with the overwhelming response I’ve gotten on my Success comic already, this weekend could not have ended on a better note.

Goodnight tumblr, I’m gonna sleep with a wide smile on my face ^^
