the great gatsby was so fucking good oh my god
CAN WE TALK ABOUT CINEMATOGRAPHY FOR A SECOND BECAUSE HOLY JESUS EVERY SINGLE SHOT WAS JUST AN ABSOLUTE PLEASURE TO MY EYEBALLS
and god everything was so vivid and borderline outrageous?? but it absolutely suited the book and i wasn’t sure how well the music would work but WOW it was just really really great
GAH EVERYTHING WAS SO PRETTY and all of the places looked exactly as i had pictured them!! how did they do that!!
and leo was perfect and vulnerable and tragic and i literally came out of the theatre not knowing to do with myself bye
seriously if you liked the book you are really going to enjoy the movie i feel like it’s a masterpiece
(read the indented words alone)
when people think that a good way to start a conversation is by saying something like “you look really tired”
awwww this is the cutest thing!! THANK YOU <33
[wiggles with you]
aaaahhh thank you so much!! goodness gracious that’s very kind of you :’)
i think the best advice i could give you is NOT to try to imitate a specific style - like, don’t look at your favourite artists’ stuff and think “oh, that’s the only right way to do it” because then your art will start looking like carbon copies of someone else’s work!! (i speak from experience it took me a really long time get away from forcing my art into a specific style)
i dunno - if you do a lot of realism, i suggest just trying to draw things more simply? use more gestures, don’t fine tune every detail - focus more on expression through your art than rendering exactly what’s in front of you. once you start breaking your subject matter down into simpler, more workable blocks, there’s more room for you to add your own flair and tweak what you wish!
it’s good that you started out with realism because it gives you a better understanding of the “rules” - now you just get to bend them into whatever you want :’) it takes time to develop a style you’re really comfortable with!! just keep practicing!
gosh sorry for this block of text, i hope this was helpful to you in some way!! this is basically how i started out but idk there’s not really a “how-to” on developing your own style (i’m still fumbling with mine) but it all comes through time and practice!
have a lovely day! :)
can we pretend this is funny for a second
AHHH thank you!! :’) i’m so excited sdmgfdjgdf
