Hey guys

quick tip for you artists:
don't let non-artists critique your work. And if you're very susceptible to changing your work because of suggestions, don't even let non-artists see your work.
I just ruined a painting because of it so don't make my mistakes.

See, you and only you have the vision for what you want the piece to become, no one else, not even another artist.
Also, I've noticed that non-artists tend to be very open with their opinions and suggestions because they just want to help but sometimes their advice isn't the most useful. Sometimes, it's just best to leave a piece at a stage where you personally are happy with it and just move on to start another piece.

Even if a more experienced artist suggests something, you don't have to do it. Even they can't see your vision for the piece.
Also, hate to say it but if you make comment on someone's work while they're making it, without them explicitly asking for your opinion, kindly fuck off. Unless you're going to say "hey that's pretty good" and THAT'S IT, don't say it. Don't criticise their work unless they ask for you to do so because they might just be in the sketching stage and would be going back to refine it later. Idk if this is just me but i quickly scribble out sketches with rough shapes so when people comment on the proportions and stuff I get a bit frustrated because scribbling out quickly like that is the artists' equivalent of a building plan. If you don't know how the drawing is going to fit on the page then it's pointless putting hours into drawing it.

And with the non-artists, they definitely wouldn't have the practise or training that you have so art looks a lot different in their eyes than ours. Sorta like how we see modern art and really appreciate it and they see modern art and say "I could've done that" or "FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND FOR THAT PIECE OF SHIT?" 

So yeah, overall, don't let other people throw you off your work. Not saying you shouldn't ask for peoples' opinions on your work but be very careful and stick with your gut feeling even if it's a bit weird.

I know it's good to take risks but honestly, not with paintings that are going towards 30% of your term grade. Just sayin...
New video up! What have I been doing for the past few weeks where I disappeared off the face of the earth? Watch to find out!
New hairstyle
Just got this snazzy cut. It's a lot more sleek than what I was originally planning to do like a year ago but i really like it ☺️☺️
IM GOING TO SEE SHAWN MENDES LIVE. I got some great seats and only $265 :D 
Cyclone Debbie is basically that grumpy office worker. She just generally fucks shit up xDD
Comment your drawing topic ideas for me to try in a video! I'm not certain whether I'm going to be genre specific or just draw whatever in a certain amount of time or whatever. Leave any ideas, suggestions, drawings below! Thanks! <3
If you ever feel lonely, just tap the spacebar and remember that 10 000 other people tapped at the exact same time with you :) 
Sorry guys, probably no video this week. I'm trying to go back to weekly videos since I really enjoy that now but I'm travelling for some family stuff and I only arrive back Sunday morning so I'll probably be dead.

I had to take a very VERY long hiatus from videos (I think it was like 6 months or something ridiculous) to figure out if I actually liked making videos. I know I made a few videos in there but I made them when I felt like it and they were about stuff I wanted to make, regardless of how long it would take so it was more about  what I made than uploading a video every week.

I guess I know a lot more now than I did back then. Like back then the camera makeup, lighting, framing, etc was really hard. And the scripting to make the most of the equipment I had was near impossible. But my last video i managed to make in a couple days (filming on the Saturday, editing and uploading on the Sunday) which I was really surprised by because usually the editing alone takes about 3 days (trimming one day, overlays, music and effects another, and final edits, render, export and upload the last)

I might make this into a video in a few years so I guess you guys can say you heard it here first. Who knows where my channel will be in a few years. I might have quit which scares the shit out of me because i can't imagine my life without YouTube anymore. I love it so much and it has changed me into the articulate, expressive, happy person I am today. Before, I would never scream at a computer game for dramatic effect but now it's just normal ahaha.

Wait what was I saying? That was a bit of a tangent lol.
Oh yeah I think what I was gonna say was, back then basic videos used to challenge me. But now I can make much harder videos I could never have even thought of then. Like back then opening a tripod and setting up the camera was hard. I remember the first time I went to film a video, i was opening the tripod and managed to smack myself in the face with a leg or something. I literally don't know how that's possible but whatever.

Anyways my point is I've learnt a shit tonne and I owe my purpose to YouTube. Without it I would just be sitting here now looking at all the YouTubers thinking "I wish I could do that" but now I can. I would just go through my everyday routine with the occasional bit of excitement here and there but YouTube makes my life so much more exciting and happy. I just love interacting with you guys and the viewers.

So basically if there's something you want to do, go do it (unless it's like rob a bank or do drugs). If you want to learn an art style, just start, if you want to learn a language, just start, if you want to play a musical instrument, just start. The hardest part is the first part of learning that skill but trust me, it gets so much easier and enjoyable from there, my friends. I believe in you and honestly, I wouldn't be here if my viewers and friends here didn't believe in me so thankyou. I owe my little successes and bigger successes alike to you.

Hey guys! My name is Kyra aka keechips on YouTube. I like to make videos that make people laugh. Hopefully, my awkwardness and complete inability to talk has charmed you over.

I am very good at stuffing things up. I was going to make a bad pun here but I don't want you to puke all over your computer and make the keys all sTiCkY. Nice mental image for you there. SLEEP WELL! :)

There's like a 99.9% chance I'm on the internet somewhere right now so maybe send me a message? That'd be really cool.
