Yeah it's no problem. I'm happy with the result so nothing else matters.
And yeah the cheesecake face was the first one I thought of when I was brainstorming with inclood. It's like pepe but from FJ.

You're definitely gonna want something money related right? Like a dude rolling in cash or something. If I could draw that would be it. Maybe the squirrel or the frog in heaps of money

deaf hero was never a hit by itself, but it worked perfectly to end a comp with it, so I'll give you credit for that ‎( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

you should bro, db is special, mohk will just be stroking your own dark cock, but db hit a wide audience, why wouldn't you want that?

heh, yeah I'm a chill guy, can't deny that

Some user here on FJ (forgot his name sadly) edited a deadpook comic because deadpool got his face restored. And he thought it looked familiar and edited it into my trademark colors and gave him a tie as well. Long story short, my profile pic is a deadpool edit

User avatar #5066 to #5065 - itsthetie (07/30/2015) [-]
It's what I do<3

Yeah I've done that for months actually, might be about time I draw something for myself
User avatar #5067 to #5066 - mrsnowballs (07/30/2015) [-]
Do you have something in mind? Because whenever someone draws something for you you could just look at it and say whether it was good or not. I imagine it's harder if you have to think of an idea about you and then draw it from scratch.

But I could be wrong, I know nothing about art
User avatar #5068 to #5067 - itsthetie (07/30/2015) [-]
Well, to put it simply.

When I draw I have all the time in the world to make something I think have to be perfect, and I can be very critical of myself.

Whenever someone else draws something for me I think it's amazing. Because they spent their own time on doing that for me, I don't care if it took them 10 minutes or 10 hours, it's already perfect to me because they did something for me. And that's special
User avatar #5069 to #5068 - mrsnowballs (07/30/2015) [-]
Yeah but how do you judge your own work? Like you have your own style right? And you might think it's horrible but others might think that it's good.
It's hard to explain but like how do you evaluate your own work? It's like writing an essay right? You wrote it and put effort into it and you think that it's decent, while a teacher reads it and gives you an F
User avatar #5070 to #5069 - itsthetie (07/30/2015) [-]
Well, it's sort of an abstract thing to compare drawing to writing, but I guess it fits. I mean, I see my drawing as very mediocre, but what I love about the comic medium is that it doesn't have to be davinci level to get around. But that doesn't mean I don't want to improve, just look at my old stuff compared to the new.

I still consider every comic a part of getting better, it's never perfect, I can see mistakes in every single one of them art-wise. Writing is another thing, I hate some of my comics now, and some I still love dearly, it's a mixed bag, and it doesn't have anything to do with how succesful they are, really.
User avatar #5071 to #5070 - mrsnowballs (07/30/2015) [-]
You know I never told you but I very much enjoyed the way you drew animals. Not the talking kind. But the ones that looked like they do irl. Like the first panels of the frog comic or the bear. It was a big part of your tie charm for me.

Really? Mind telling me which ones you hate/love and for what reason?
User avatar #5072 to #5071 - itsthetie (07/30/2015) [-]
I was thinking of doing that again, I did that in several comics actually. Starting off with a realistic animal and then doing it cartoony. You're actually the only person to ever mention it, that's pretty funny

Well, here's two that were well received, that I didn't like. I hate the comic about the two rats, the punchline just ended up being " ****** " and that was it. The setup was good, but I wish I did more with it. Could have been a series about a gang war between crows and rats, but yeah..

Another one I hate is the feels comic I did for my grandfather. I wish I didn't draw the last two panels, it already made its point by making the girl go "dad..", but it was in my early comic making days, so I forgive myself for it, but it could have been better

I love a lot of my comics that were well received, but one I really love that was almost universally panned compared to my "standards" is Evolution. The one where a duck with freaking teeth kills darwin with a bat and sets the guy's house on fire. I just love that the duck wonders if he ****** up his catchphrase regarding Darwin's theory of evolution.

That's what I can think of now, but hey. As a bonus, my favorite comic I've made of all time is a tie between the science gorilla and the first suicide squirrel comic. Those are dear to my heart because they made me laugh out loud when I thought them up, and still made me chuckle when I drew them. They can still make me smile today when I read them
User avatar #5073 to #5072 - mrsnowballs (07/30/2015) [-]
Yeah that's the exact thing I was thinking about. Start off realistically and end cartooney, I love that **** . The way you draw animals really fascinates me. Like they're very realistic looking, yet cartooney at the same time.

I mean everybody did kind of drive the ****** joke into the ground, so you're smart for staying away from it. And yeah the suicidal squirrel always made me laugh. He's my favorite
User avatar #5074 to #5073 - itsthetie (07/30/2015) [-]
I'm glad you get that feel about them man, I should get back to a few animal comics, I just haven't had the ideas for them sadly. People are an easier subject matter tbh

Yeah, I did it for my one year anniversary, and I still like that comic a lot since it was a new punchline rather than just someone saying ****** and have the black guy pop up. But I felt it was the end of it, I don't wanna touch that joke again, it's done and it had a good run.

I wanna do a comic about that squirrel again so badly, he's my own favorite, haha.
User avatar #5076 to #5074 - mrsnowballs (07/30/2015) [-]
I totally understand. You can only go so far with animals before the comics stop making sense.

Lol people still will never let it go I hope you know that. I bet 2 years from now if you're still making comics the ****** edits in the comments will be there.

Well there is your goal. You wanna get back to drawing animals AND the squirrel is your favorite. Time to start thinking up the script then.
User avatar #5077 to #5076 - itsthetie (07/30/2015) [-]
Yeah it's a tough subject, unless you just put them in human situations like the squirrel. But it has to feel right, I don't wanna do a comic replacing humans with animals just for the heck of it

yeah I know, I guess I gotta do an actual "let's just kill the ****** joke pls" comic, before it actually dies, haha

I knooo, I should get to writing, once the exam is done I'm damn sure gonna do an hd squirrel comic, just you wait!
User avatar #5078 to #5077 - mrsnowballs (07/30/2015) [-]
Yeah those don't really do well. You gotta have a creative spin on it. Like your old stuff for example. The setting was in the forest and the jokes rotated around both "real life" and fiction it was great.

Nah m8 don't do that. The anniversary was good enough. Nothing will kill the joke as it is an easy thumb grab and if you comment on it it'll only get worse.

Ooh an hd classic, that'll be a sight to behold

nope, elementary school. Or rather, 6-16-year-olds. Danish school system is a lil' funky compared to others'

I didn't know they learned music that early. I mean I don't think you can appreciate a class like that until you're at least 13 right? Below that they'll just treat it like a game right?
User avatar #5038 to #5037 - itsthetie (07/30/2015) [-]
Yeah lots of European countries borrow principles from Karl Orff and a guy named Kodaly, those two guys basicaly think it's essential to teach kids about music through various methods from an early age to encourage motor skill growth, pretty fascinating stuff. Once they turn 13 music is an optional class, and that's where I get to teach them more advanced stuff. Like singing in harmony with others, learning more difficult instruments etc
User avatar #5039 to #5038 - mrsnowballs (07/30/2015) [-]
How would a music class even go for 6 to 10 year olds? I assume you can't teach them that much theory, so it's mostly practice right?
User avatar #5040 to #5039 - itsthetie (07/30/2015) [-]
Yeah, simple dances to teach them about rhythms and beats. Reciting songs accompanied by piano or guitar. Lots of simple stuff, really. Cuz like you said, they mostly treat it like a game, but we sorta "trick" them into learning to get to know their bodies better along with simple knowledge about music. It's a win/win really
User avatar #5041 to #5040 - mrsnowballs (07/30/2015) [-]
Yeah makes sense. So when do they get to play the instruments?
User avatar #5042 to #5041 - itsthetie (07/30/2015) [-]
Oh right I forgot, they do that too. But only simple percussion like congas, guirros, bonga and maybe xylofone so they can learn to hold a steady beat.
User avatar #5043 to #5042 - mrsnowballs (07/30/2015) [-]
I imagine it's gonna be hard to calm them down. I mean you give a bunch of energetic kids congas and maracas and whatnot and the chaos will probably ensue. Lol you really have to be Tie the Stern to keep them in check
User avatar #5045 to #5043 - itsthetie (07/30/2015) [-]
Oh yes I do. I tried it in my internship, and you gotta keep a tightly knitted structure to not have them make noise all the time. Something along the lines of "Okay everyone, I'm gonna put this box of instruments on the floor. You get to pick your instrument from left to right (if the kids are sitting in a half circle), but keep your instrument silent until I tell you differently, or else.. I'm taking it away from you" bam, give them freedom to choose, and freedom to lose
User avatar #5046 to #5045 - mrsnowballs (07/30/2015) [-]
Would you really take it away then? Or warn them?
If you take it away will he just sit there doing nothing?
User avatar #5047 to #5046 - itsthetie (07/30/2015) [-]
They mostly get instruments to play on specific parts of a song and sing along on the rest. If I take their instrument, they just clap on the cues the instruments would normally be in. They don't accompany the whole song until they'r eabout 10 or so. But no of course I give them warnings, three strikes and they're out. I'm not brutal, I know attention spans of little kids vary, haha
User avatar #5048 to #5047 - mrsnowballs (07/30/2015) [-]
Any reason you decided to go with the younger students and not 16+?
User avatar #5049 to #5048 - itsthetie (07/30/2015) [-]
16+ would require higher education for the most part. I'm am actually qualified for high school students if I teach lower levels of the subjects. For instance, they have Music C, B and A level. I'd be able to teach C. If the young kids don't work out, I might just try that out instead
User avatar #5050 to #5049 - mrsnowballs (07/30/2015) [-]
That certainly would be a lot more pressure. Be sure you're mentally prepared if you ever decide to teach highschoolers. I was in highschool myself and I remember that teachers were talked about fairly often
User avatar #5051 to #5050 - itsthetie (07/30/2015) [-]
Oh yeah, it's an entirely different environment. These are almost grown-up people I have to have authority over. They can smell ******* from a mile away, so I need to know my **** if that's where I'm going
User avatar #5052 to #5051 - mrsnowballs (07/30/2015) [-]
That's where you shift to a super cool and bro-like attitude. I feel like people in highschool appreciate that a lot more. I remember this Physics teacher in highschool, he was the chillest ************ you'll ever meet. He was funny as well, making dirty jokes and whatnot, poking at other teachers. That attitude can go a long way with "young adults"
User avatar #5053 to #5052 - itsthetie (07/30/2015) [-]
Yeah you got a point, I remember teachers like that as well. Well, I'm not that funny in person, but I can definitely be chill, haha
User avatar #5054 to #5053 - mrsnowballs (07/30/2015) [-]
So you're saying your online persona is funnier than irl?
Yeah that you can be. I never had music in school, but if I did I'd definitely would want a taste of Tie's teachings
User avatar #5056 to #5054 - itsthetie (07/30/2015) [-]
Haha, I barely consider my online persona funny, but I try
Aw, I'm flattered bby, thank u<3
User avatar #5059 to #5056 - mrsnowballs (07/30/2015) [-]
Relaxed is the word I would pick for you.

Btw I like your profile pic, where is it from?
User avatar #5012 to #5009 - itsthetie (07/30/2015) [-]
sorta my last spare time for a while, so I'm making the best of it, heh
User avatar #5014 to #5012 - mrsnowballs (07/30/2015) [-]
How so? What will you be busy with?
User avatar #5015 to #5014 - itsthetie (07/30/2015) [-]
redoing an exam i flunked sadly, but I'll at least be off the hook from August 11th when it's done until september first when school resumes
User avatar #5016 to #5015 - mrsnowballs (07/30/2015) [-]
So how will you prepare this time? You thought you were ready last time right? What will you do differently now?
User avatar #5019 to #5016 - itsthetie (07/30/2015) [-]
Just concentrating more on the theoretic stuff. I feel like I've got the rest pretty much locked down. The theoretic stuff was what I completely blew last time
User avatar #5021 to #5019 - mrsnowballs (07/30/2015) [-]
So you feel like you got the piano down? Or was it singing that you messed up? Sorry it's been long since we last spoke, I don't remember
User avatar #5022 to #5021 - itsthetie (07/30/2015) [-]
both kinda, haha. I messed up the piano a little, I messed up singing a little. The theoretic part was what made me flunk, so that's the part I want to get down 100% this time
User avatar #5023 to #5022 - mrsnowballs (07/30/2015) [-]
I remember you being pretty confident after the exam (before you got the results that is). Did they not tell you if what you were saying is right or wrong? Like they'd nod or frown or ask you to elaborate right?
User avatar #5024 to #5023 - itsthetie (07/30/2015) [-]
Well that's because the exam was a two-parter. I passed the first part. It was the second, and big one, that I ****** up majorly. Nah it wasn't that what I said was wrong, it was just too thin, and I stumped, choked, and ended up forgetting a lot of stuff. So I only talked for about 6 or so minutes of the 15 I had to fill out.
User avatar #5025 to #5024 - mrsnowballs (07/30/2015) [-]
Damn man I know that feel. I hate presenting, especially in front of the audience. Even if the exam is just 2 people it's still nerve-wrecking.

When is the redo date?
User avatar #5026 to #5025 - itsthetie (07/30/2015) [-]
Yeah me too, it's the worst. Especially because I'm being judged on something so personal as singing and instrumental capabilities.

It's August 11th, and if I nail the exam, I can finally relax before school starts again
User avatar #5027 to #5026 - mrsnowballs (07/30/2015) [-]
Do you not feel that way in front of kids then? Like you'll have to present everyday multiple times in front of your students.

Well you better ******* nail it then
User avatar #5028 to #5027 - itsthetie (07/30/2015) [-]
Not the least, kids are a whole other story to 'present' to. I just have to present stuff to them so they have a basic understanding of stuff, it's just an entirely different environment than being all academic.

I ******* hope so man :/
User avatar #5029 to #5028 - mrsnowballs (07/30/2015) [-]
Yeah I guess you're right. Kids don't judge as much at least they don't judge adults.

What will be the first thing you do after you pass it?
User avatar #5030 to #5029 - itsthetie (07/30/2015) [-]
Nah I could be ************ them all day and they wouldn't know the difference. My teacher's a different thing, heh.

I don't know man, I haven't thought that far. I'm gonna celebrate it big time that's for sure
User avatar #5031 to #5030 - mrsnowballs (07/30/2015) [-]
Lol that's true. I wonder how it'd be learning music and **** under Mr. Tie

Well I'll raise an imaginary glass for you then. You'll pass this time for sure
User avatar #5032 to #5031 - itsthetie (07/30/2015) [-]
Haha, I'm stern, but fair. You have fun as long as you express yourself through the instruments/tasks your given

Thank you my brotha, I really appreciate that. Definitely got my fingers crossed!
User avatar #5033 to #5032 - mrsnowballs (07/30/2015) [-]
So will you be like their "friend" on the same level as then, treating them like adults and stuff or will you be their "teacher" who should be respected and talked to in a serious manner?
User avatar #5034 to #5033 - itsthetie (07/30/2015) [-]
a bit of both. If I'm too much of an authority figure, they'll shun me for sure. And if I'm too much of a friend they won't respect me. We learn a lot about this at the seminarium
User avatar #5035 to #5034 - mrsnowballs (07/30/2015) [-]
What age group will you teach? Highschoolers I assume?

Might as well be, my best friend over the past 6 years is terminally ill. ****** been rough
User avatar #4989 to #4988 - mrsnowballs (07/20/2015) [-]
Damn man I'm sorry. What illness does he have if you don't mind me asking?
User avatar #4996 to #4989 - itsthetie (07/22/2015) [-]
Cancer, a very aggressive one too. 90% sure he's not gonna make it. Went out to visit him today, looking at him all jacked up by chemo was rough. I've been binge drinking a lot lately, but I'm on my way back on track tho
User avatar #4997 to #4996 - mrsnowballs (07/22/2015) [-]
I mean what is the plan that they have for him? Chemo him and hope it goes away? If the chance of survival is that low maybe it's better for him to not feel like **** 24 hours a day because of chemo. Maybe it's better to take him out for a last beer or two.
