i played a lot of rival schools and project justice last night and this is the whole story of those two games
IN A BETTER GAME
My God these marriages are so fucking stupid most of the times.
Yes, I’m marrying Donnel and Nowi.
Well, at least they’re kiddies, can’t bla—THERE SHOULDN’T EVEN BE THE OPTION TO MARRY THEM OFF.
Also man… what’s the problem with trying hard and telling people to try harder? Isn’t it also part of practice? I think it’s a great way of encouraging people instead of breaking all of their work completely.
A friendly reminder:
Kita Senri, illustrator of Fire Emblem 9 and 10, is female and can draw both bara and bishies very VERY well, so if you whine because you can’t draw baras cuz you just don’t know how to draw manly men, or whine because you can’t draw bishies because…
The post was directed to a classmate of mine that tells me all the time that she can’t draw manly men. The point is, she can’t do it but she doesn’t even try! But her excuse is that she draws bishies too much, and thus her manly men won’t end up looking manly.
The post was also directed to MYSELF one year ago when I told myself I couldn’t draw girly guys and bishies because I drew too much bara and I liked bara too much.
Basically I’m criticizing people who whine about not being able to draw things they don’t even try drawing and end up having petty excuses to not draw them: I don’t want to talk about people who draw only what they like and who draw as a hobby, because drawing as a hobby is something I don’t know much about. Also, the “everyone draws what they like” rule only works a bit here…
If you whine because you can’t draw something, then it means you wish you knew how to draw it after all, right? Then where’s your willpower to learn how to draw it?
Effort, practice and experience get along very well. To draw, you must give it all your effort everytime, even if you’re drawing something simple or something you can draw better, but you also need experience to know how to draw things, and how do you get experience? Practice. It’s a virtuous endless loop. Practice -> Experience -> Effort -> Practice, et cetera. With this, you can learn how to draw pretty much anything, no excuses: if you want to learn how to draw something, you’ll learn eventually if you follow these steps! Thus, if this method works for everything (and trust me, it works at least for me), then you can learn how to draw both baras and bishies at the same time, without one influencing the other in looks, body shapes, et cetera. I’m sure that if you study human male anatomy you can practice on drawing both at the same time, and even focus on just one, but just because you focus on one that doesn’t mean you can’t learn to draw the other after.
That was the point of my post. To tell people to try hard and practice drawing instead of whining about not being able to do it. It was a rather silly and dickish post but I wanted to be sincere with it, I wanted to show my classmate that ours was just a problem we built ourselves with our silly assumptions, not a problem we totally couldn’t pass.
Oh, and since you brought it up, talent can go throw itself in the toilet, because not everyone who draws has it. I do not care for it if it’s not something anyone can afford and work with it. I am sick of people talking about it so I just want to exclude it completely in this. Sometimes, I feel like it’s just an excuse some people use to feel better about themselves, but I think we should just FORGET about it and practice more! Only with practice and thoughtful effort we can afford the experience we need to get better.
Had a few people send this one to me. First 4 Figures just released an AMAZING Ryo Hazuki figure and now they’re getting votes on who the next should be.
Kazuma Kiryu is in the running but falling behind! The Dragon of Dojima deserves better than this!

omg they fixed the face!!!
It’s become something that makes me really sad when I see people ragging on “yaoi”. I mean, I used to do it myself, but after a little serious thinking and discussion on it I realized there wasn’t much point in doing so, and there are a lot of worthwhile and unique things the yaoi genre does that people don’t pick up on cause they’re so busy rolling their eyes at so-called “screaming yaoi fangirls xD”
It’s a big part of why I stopped doing Let Me Fix That Yaoi For You actually…
