Hey yo my dude. I just started to read your comic & it's really great honest to my future grave I read it all in one night whilst admiring your art all at the same time. This is just my curiousity but do you use refs to draw out your backgrounds & scenery ? I'm not big on backgrounds, well drawing them anyway. I just wasn't sure if you're just naturally imaginative or you need a bit help along the way ya know ... if this makes sense ???? Sorry ... Bottom line great work seriously ╰(*´︶`*)╯♡

Thanks!! I use refs a lot! But some things I just try to BS along the way

I can’t tell if my art is bad or? How do you receive attention online? Is it just a matter of posting the right thing at the right time with the right tags? Or posting all the time? Or maybe just purely fan art? How do y'all do it, lmao

As for me, I got lucky by posting for the right fandom at the right time! After that well… you just try your best to continue capturing people’s interests with whatever you can draw and improve! Fan art and original are fine.

vel ik this is a weird question but do you think that you could post all of your brushes and their settings ?? even if you don’t use them someone else could ?? also i’m curious abt what they are

Can I ask you how do you create th smoke effect you used in your last Dva artwork? love your art!

Just keep airbrushing!! Use large strokes and circles for smoke, and the occasional fringe!

(Apologies for the English in advance! ) *Me and my friend, lying on the bed at 4 am* Them: “Do you ever just see velocesmells’ art and start crying?” Me: *Already in tears* Me: “Y-yeah!” Me: *Notices the tears streaming down their face* Them: “Not even ashamed.” We love the arts you make! Very beautiful colorings and the eyes are the favorites!

T-this is so cute… thank you ;_;

Sasuke was never portrayed as a f*ckboy in canon. He was initially this guy that attracted a lot of people from his looks to his talent and also because he was part of the Uchiha clan. Being portrayed as popular between girls/boys is not the same.

Sasuke is one of the most (if not, the most) purest characters in the manga when it comes to relationships –either romantic, friendly or brotherly–, and the only people he showed interest during the whole series was Itachi and Team 7.

And if we use that word to define Sasuke there might be something wrong with your interpretation of his character. Yes, he had a lot of fangirls but he never intended something with them or never really cared about them. Sasuke is a character that develops emotional bonds with selected peope who can understand his feelings and/or make him feel better. 

It’s true that in Gaiden, and according to what Kishi wanted people to believe at first —just take a look at how Naruto, Suigetsu or even Sarada doubted Sasuke’s fidelity—, then you have again Sasuke’s reaction and confusion at some attitudes his daughter and bestfriend were having during the whole spin-off.

In the end just one girl in the manga received a romantic gesture from him, opposed at what that word represents. I’m pretty sure that can be sustained by Naruto Part I/II and Gaiden.

So... Not entirely sure if anyone has ever asked you this before, but how the hell are you motivated enough to animate stuff? Is it validation from others? The responsibility of catering to an audience? I mean, I'm unmotivated af with my interests. I'm kinda jealous of the people who can eventually get shit done.

The final result and the fact that people loves what I do keeps me going.

Also tumblr is much more mature than the undertale amino.

I think I received 5 messages from people saying that lost respect for what I do because I wasn’t supporting the ships that allow incest and pedophilia… and that basically I hate all my fans lol.

I think perhaps my favorite thing about Lafayette is that he was always so open about loving everybody, but he needed to make sure those people loved him too. Like, he's all, "my general, you know how much I miss you and love you, and I haven't received any letters from you, so I'm just writing you AGAIN, JUST TO MAKE SURE that you still love me too. You still love me, right? ....I love you. PLEASE WRITE! Love you, bye." It's just so freakin adorable.

AGREED. Those are always some of the most entertaining and amusing letters. With Washington, his line of questioning is always respectful and earnest. With Hamilton, there’s an undertone of impatience that cracks me up.

What is the matter with my dear hamilton And By what chance do I live in fruitless expectation of Some lines from him? does it begin to be the way in your, or rather in our Country to take European Airs, and forget friends as soon as they have turn’d theyr heels—indeed, My Good friend, I Cant help being Some what angry Against you, which shakes into My heart a Ridicu⟨lous⟩ fighting between love and anger and as the first will never go off, you must behave better with me that Anger might be more decently dismissed.

jjjemmm  asked:

I wrote a novel but I'm having trouble getting people to read it. Any suggestions?

Thanks for your question, dear!  I’m not sure exactly how you’re sharing your novel, so I’ll cover the basics first:

  • Share your novel online.  This is a good way to receive feedback, make writing friends, and enter contests!  Remember, though, that if you ever plan to formally publish this novel, you probably shouldn’t share it online.  Some of my favorite websites for this include: Wattpad, FictionPressWritersCafe.org, & Booksie.
  • Advertise on social media.  Posting links with a short summary on media outlets like tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook, can help you gain attention from people who are interested.  Make sure to tag your genres and any other relevant information about your story which might catch someone’s eye.
  • Commission (or have a friend create) a book cover.  People really do judge a book by its cover, so if you can snag some intriguing-looking artwork to post with your novel, it’ll really help.
  • Make your summary and title count.  Even though titles and (good) summaries are pretty brief, you need to take that space to make strangers stop scrolling and think, “Well hey, that sounds neat.”  Use powerful words and a strong narrative voice (and humor never hurts!).  Try to drop as much information about the plot, the characters, and the conflict as you can, with as few words as you can.  Otherwise you’re wasting one of the only tools at your disposal.
  • Compare it to other stories.  Yes, I know that’s the last thing an original novelist wants to do – compare their stories to other famous stories.  It feels like you’re just banging pots and pans together and shouting, “Hey everybody!  I did the same thing as Star Trek, but worse!”  But seriously, this is how fandoms work.  If you tell someone your story is completely unique and unpredictable, they may wonder if they want to invest time in something they might not even like.  But if you tell a Percy Jackson fan that your books have a Percy Jackson vibe, they’re probably more likely to take a look.
  • That said, make sure you deviate from fanfiction territory.  Fanfiction advertised as fanfiction is great and people love it.  Fanfiction advertised as an original novel feels like sitting down at a Chinese restaurant and finding out they only serve Mexican.  It’s not that one is better than the other – it’s just that you kinda came here for Chinese food.  So make sure both your content and your summary convey that this is, in fact, Chinese food.  Don’t get so wrapped up in attracting fandoms that you wind up advertising the Hunger Games/Star Wars/Doctor Who crossover from hell, instead of your novel, which only has hints of those other things.
  • Ask your friends to signal boost you.  The more word-of-mouth you can get going, the better!  After all, I’m more likely to read a story that’s recommended by a random person, than if the author themselves is trying to convince me it’s good.  It’s just natural.  I trust readers more than writers.  It may even help (and this is kinda cheaty but you know… who cares) to create another Twitter/tumblr account and fic rec yourself.  No one will know…
  • I could signal boost you if you’re interested…?  I’d want to read a few chapters first, since I like to know what I’m promoting, but I’ve got upwards of 3K followers, so that’s at least a little publicity I guess.  If you’re interested, you can message me about that :)

Anyway, that’s all I’ve got for you at the moment.  Without knowing what outlet you’re using to share your novel, I can’t really help you out any more.  But if you have more questions, my inbox is always open!  Good luck :)


If you need advice on general writing or fanfiction, you should maybe ask me!

In a society where werewolves are second class, Deucslist is an alternative werewolf network (similar to Craigslist) where humans and werewolves offer (mostly sexual) services. Derek is a long-term client of an anonymous human omega whose scent is just perfect. He never expects to meet him, until it happens.

Derek has slept with that faded red hooded sweatshirt every night since he got it in the mail. It’s calming, that scent; it’s everything to him.
So it’s strange now that Derek is smelling it wafting from the end of the subway car as it careens towards the L line, lights flickering on the passing platforms.

“‘So you’re saying that Stiles has a crush on me?’ Derek asked, and Isaac just gave him a stupid ‘are you kidding me with this?’ look that made Derek want to bite his head off.

‘Seriously? How could you not know?’ Isaac’s smartass look was frustrating Derek way more than it should. 'Every time he’s around you he kind of loses the power of speech, and dude, he… smells.’

'Smells? Like what?’ Derek asked, no small amount of disappointment in his voice.”

a.k.a. that one where Derek is oblivious to Stiles’ scent until suddenly he’s not.

Of all the scents Derek imagined being innately in tune with, applecinnamonoatmeal was not at the top of list. Not the kind that comes from instant packets of oatmeal with dehydrated bits of apple that only need a cup of milk and a minute and a half in the microwave to be ready. Not the floral infused candy apple scent of body mists or oatmeal soaps that Erica favors. The pure, unadulterated scent of fresh baked goods made with pureed apple, steel-cut oats, cinnamon, and just a pinch of allspice.

Stiles is the first and last person Derek has ever wanted to associate with that scent.

I FOUND A PROMPT AND IF YOU WANT TO WRITE THIS THEN PLEASE DO I'M BEGGING YOU BECAUSE OHMYGOD LOOK AT THIS I NEED IT "i’m the super macho, stereotypical top type of person, but i actually love bottoming and i’m not sure how to tell you that (particularly because you seem to be really enthusiastic about bottoming yourself), but oh look, you’ve found my extensive collection of butt plugs"

It’s gone past the point where Kylo feels he can mention anything on the topic to Hux.

Almost eight months into their relationship and Hux being on the receiving end of their endeavours every time, Kylo has quietly accepted his role as the ‘top’, willingly but rather unhappily. But having Hux underneath him, shaking and sweating, listening to the gloriously filthy sounds that he creates almost makes Kylo forget all about his desire to be taken apart by Hux’s hands, but it’s afterwards when Hux is sleeping and Kylo can take in the sight of his lover’s lithe body, that he truly begins to fantasise about having Hux fuck him.

Kylo sighs, relaxing himself as he lays nude upon his bed, legs open, fingers covered in lube as he pushes a slick plug inside himself, pressing down on the white jewelled bottom until it’s to its hilt inside, and Kylo exhales slowly, adjusting to its girth. It’s the third largest out of the six in his collection; all lined up in size order inside of the wardrobe in his chambers, all a transparent blue colour with varying colours of jewels on their bottoms. With no heavy training today, Kylo had selected the third largest to keep in, to feel something inside of him, and imagine that it’s Hux’s cock.

‘You fit around me so well,’ he imagines Hux whispering to him, his fingers withdrawing then pushing the plug back in. ‘Look at you. All muscle and all pink. What a sight you are, Ren.’

Kylo grasps his cock then, pumping it, whispering ‘yes, Hux, yes, fuck me,’ to himself as he brings himself to his climax, gasping as he imagines Hux spilling inside of him, spreading his come across Kylo’s perineum and leaving him dripping, forcing a plug back in to hold it inside his little bitch.

Kylo climaxes hard, heels digging into the bed, milking his own cock at the mere thought of bottoming for Hux.

A fantasy.

I love your comics and was just wondering does Elsewhere U do anything different with their record keeping to prevent students names from getting out w/o their permission? I'm just thinking about how dangerous class role calls could be...

Anything in physical form is kept locked in large custom iron filing cabinets, but from orientation week till the day before you receive your diploma, all official paperwork refers to each student by their chosen name.

Hello! I just wanted to ask if you reblog art from your submit page? Another artist acknowledges fanart but never the art I did? And I was really proud of it? How does that really work? I'm still kinda new. So how do you get a hold of fanart and why does some artist ignore some fanart?

Okay first thing you need to know is; NO ARTIST ignores any fanarts for them.. most of the time they just received SO MANY of them- but I’m sure deep in their hearts, every artist are grateful for every fanarts they received..

But they are still equally humans..

Sometimes some of them want to keep their blog tidy for their audience’s comfort.. some have so little time for their fans because of their own reasons.. some received too many fanarts and ended up missing so many of them.. some have bad experience about these kind of thing and rather avoid those problem alltogether..

it’s not just you.. as much as they are thankful for the fanart, they really still want you all to do it because you’re genuine.. not just for their attention..

Aren’t your main reason to make fanart for them is to make them happy? They ARE. They are glad their creation inspire you.. They’re just having hard time showing their gratitude FOR EVERYONE. ;v;

so I hope you understand hun..

Is it wrong to be uncomfortable with how Beyoncé is almost deified by people? She's been using a lot of religious symbolism that kind of buys into this image, and I'm not sure how I feel, because she is so loved, practically revered, that she's been put into a position where she can pretty much do nothing wrong. Plus, I'm Roman Catholic, and the religious symbolism and comparisons make me uncomfortable. I like her, and I like her music, I just don't see her as a Queen or goddess or whatever.

I’d say quite the opposite is true, because she’s so watched and admired anything she does wrong could be 100000x magnified and made worse. And she’s definitely not loved by all, a Lot of people smugly declare that they are not, in fact, Beyonce fans. She receives a lot of ‘hate’ (misogyny, racism, misogynoir).

Now, one Roman Catholic to another, what part of her symbolism is making you uncomfortable? She’s not using any imagery reminiscent of this religion.

how do you think is the best way to write a letter to dan? i've really been wanting to just say how he's been an inspiration and everything like that to him and i'm just not sure the best way to contact him

The Grumps PO box is best, we just saw that he has his own little mail cubby in the office! I’ve sent a few cards to him. Hand written things are the best and I’m sure he really appreciates them and reads them when he has time. But the thing is you have to be okay with not getting a response, because you will most likely not receive one. And I know that’s hard, but that’s just the way it is. So definitely write him a nice letter and send it off to the post box, but after that point let yourself feel relief and joy that you got to tell Dan how you felt, and don’t let yourself wait on a reply.

You work your arse off to create content for us, offering advice and comfort to people as well and you handle the negativity that comes your way with such patience, grace and integrity. I'm sure you've received numerous messages like this one and I in no way expect an answer at all since you must have 1000s of asks right now but I thought one more message telling you just how appreciated you are wouldn't hurt 😘

How could I possibly not respond such a heartwarming message? I’ll dig through my inbox as much as it takes and by the old gods that I’ll reply! 

Thank you so much for your lovely words of encouragement and just kindness in general, you’re too sweet. I don’t mind the hard work when the pay off is so very amazing, having the chance to help people in any way is more than I need. And when people come into my inbox or chat box to tell me my blog puts a smile on their face then I know I’m doing the right thing and everything is more than worth it. 

It’s hard building a big community without it tearing itself apart from the inside out, and I’m so happy to see you all being so supportive and caring of each other, it’s such a rare, amazing thing. So thank you all for also being patient and graceful, and respectful.

columboring  asked:

how did eric and dylan obtain the money to buy the guns? i know some of it came from their blackjacks jobs and robyn bought some of their guns (how she got the money though, i don't know) but how did they afford all the other equipment? surely their parents must have noticed if they'd stolen money? i'm beyond confused about this.

I know some of you may find this a little difficult to believe but those boys actually did earn their own money to fund their little secret operation. Eric was a long-term employee with Blackjack, and Dylan worked part time on two separate occasions at Blackjack. He then did a lot of odd jobs of ‘98 and finally landed his long-hours stint at the computer store for a few months - which likely earned him some better pay. The boys received their paycheck every two weeks. Eric was likely the more heavy financier of the two. Pre taxes, Eric roughly earned $380 - $400 with each check and Dylan, about $240-$280. They maybe earned a bit more depending on if they worked all weekend as well as weekdays after school. They set aside money towards their monthly car insurance (both parents made sure they were responsible for it (good parents!)) and they kept some for spending cash for movies, music and weekend fun. The rest was stockpiled for NBK.  Yes, it was tight for them but they did it all on their own.  

Robyn did not literally pay for their guns. The boys gave her the money they’d saved up in cash so that she could legally handle the transaction with the dealer because she was of the legal age of 18 and they were still minors. I’m not really sure what you mean by “equipment” because everything they used was pretty much amateur-homemade. They spent on hardware parts to construct their pipe bombs and crickets and propane bombs. They designed their shirts and had them created at a t-shirt shop at their local mall.  Eric already had a few pairs of BDU pants he wore regularly at school and both already had and wore combat boots they wore often They purchased accessories for their NBK “uniform” - their knives, the webbing, ammo pouches, Dylan’s black pants at the army supply store.  The day of the massacre,  E & D bought more propane tanks and the authorities actually found about $200 in cash that Eric had left over which was found(I seem to recall) in his bedroom.  They two were very self-sufficient and resourceful and spent over a year saving, preparing and planning all on their own. So, yes, they earned and spent all their own money for NBK and it was entirely feasible how they did so.  They never needed to steal from their parents and it’s doubtful they’d even consider it as a solution for being short on cash. Plus, it would’ve been too risky with potential consequences right on the heels of being in the diversion program.
