• Unsure about gender? Not involving more than 3 genders.?

    So, for a bit of background, I am male. I have always been male, and I ve always been fine with it. But recently I ve been feeling more feminine, caring much more about my appearance, and even going to the extent of asking some friends to call me she.

    So, for a bit of background, I am male. I have always been male, and I ve always been fine with it. But recently I ve been feeling more feminine, caring much more about my appearance, and even going to the extent of asking some friends to call me she. I m not sure what to make of this at all, as it s very confusing. And it s not a matter of just wanting to walk the walk of a female, but being treated like one, even having the thoughts of surgery to change my gender isn t out the window. By no means do I think this is a bad thing, but it s concerning and extremely conflicting. How do I know if it s one of those phases or if it could be more? Is there any resources online I could get advice from?

  • Where is a good point to start drawing?

    I decided I needed some more hobbies and so decided to draw. Watching people online drawing all these really cool illustrations just seemed like it would be a blast if I could do that. I looked into it and bought a cheap Bamboo Tablet without realizing that MAYBE I should start on paper and go from there. On paper I have tried to draw as well as on the tablet. I just get frustrated with the tablet but one drawing I have turned out really well in my mind. It was EXTREMELY basic, trying to create a robotic head and give it 3D features and shading. It turned out nice but all it was was a facemask with eyes and the slits for the mouth piece. But I digress. Ultimately i'd like to be able to draw some pretty awesome anime type stuff (i.e Death the Kid, Soul Evans, characters from FMA, Angel Beats, etc.) Does anyone know of some good tutorials on how to build up those drawing skills or even some tips or suggestions to build them up? It is getting frustrating when I can think of some pretty cool idea's and they don't turn out like I thought they would on paper or on the computer. Thanks ^.^
