So Hank, what's the deal with Pluto right now? Is it a planet or not?

edwardspoonhands answered:

Pluto is not a planet. The IAU (in my book) gets to decide what the definition of a planet is because there has to be a definition and they are by far the most qualified body to define it. 

Pluto does not meet that definition, and thus should not be considered a planet. I agree with their definition, but even if I didn’t I would submit to it because I am not an expert. 

Recently, three people sat in a room and argued about whether pluto was a planet. The audience then voted…and they voted that Pluto was a planet. That, of course, means nothing. If you want random groups of people to define scientific terms…it’s going to be hard to get any actual science done.

Do you remember at the end of Book 1 when Nick released a video using that song (i forgot what it's called) that transitioned from Korra's theme to Aang's, to recap the season? If so, do you know where to find it? I feel the need to watch it after you reblogged that post. D:

I’m not sure, sorry! Followers?

It’s a snippet from Greatest Change. It should be on the Book 1 soundtrack on iTunes. :)

What is style? I draw what I see, so when I draw people they turn out like the reference I used, so when I show people they're like "that's cool, but when are you going to get your own style? Ya know, like this *then shows me cartoon like drawings*" should I stay with my realistic drawings? I find it difficult to "draw with style"

foervraengd answered:

First off I think it’s REALLY rude to ask an artist “when are you gonna get your own art style?” because that’s putting unwanted expectations from you. Not to mention that an art style doesn’t have to look cartoony to count as a style, have ppl completely ignored the history of art styles??????????

My guess tho is that they’re actually talking more about your creativity - copying from photos aren’t really considered as being creative nowadays (especially if you are a digital artist).

I would say that drawing style is similar to your own handwriting. I think the best way is to stick to what you personally enjoy to draw, but if you’re curious why not draw stuff that aren’t based from a reference? I mean if you have drawn from references many times, you shouldn’t have any problem to draw similar stuff on your own right?

A drawing style doesn’t have to look cartoony or anime/manga.

To me, drawing style is also stuff like how an artist prefer to ink/lineart their drawings; do they prefer uniform thin lines or do they enjoy black heavy shadows with dynamic line width?

Style goes also for how the artist prefer to color their artwork, are the colors strong and vivid? Or are they more fond of pastell toned color schemes?

For traditional artists, style can also be about their preferred choice of art materials. That in itself can be a form of art (like you know artists who makes giant sculptures out of M’n’M’s and similar stuff)

And for many many MANY artists, their style often has to do about what they personally enjoy to draw - some artists simply just wanna draw pinups, or dragons, or portraits of their pets.

Style is more or less the things in your artwork that indicates it’s done by you. Just like how we can recognize the handwriting on a lot of people.

Art style is maybe a bit like your own “visual” accent or dialect or personal smell.

tl;dr: art style is your own choice and you have all right to draw what you want.
