    I'm not nearly good enough for that. One guy pays my entry fees at SOME tournaments, and the other just gives me plenty of free gear. Which, at blue belt, is an incredible support system, IMO.

    I train horses, babysit, tutor, and do artwork for money. I'm trying to get my name out there too, trying to work tournaments in exchange for the other entry fees getting covered.

    I don't have much of the recent stuff up there, only the top row is from the last year. Most of it is from 10th/11th grade portfolio, which required a focus, hence all the horses.

    for comparison.. when i was a blue belt my division was 63 guys :hs:

    my team mate got second in the world championships in blue belt and he had SEVEN matches.

    as a girl you get ripped off even worse than the guys do

    My teacher sucked hardcore. After that class, I didn't even sketch for a year. I was so sick of art.

    same here, my teacher wanted me to do one thing and i really wanted to focus on something else, and the result was completely shitty art
