honestly, this has been on my mind for a while, but I think there are some people I need to… not distance myself from, but sometimes, often, I’m more excited about a friendship than the other person is and it just creates this weird feeling of imbalance. I don’t know if that sounds weird, but when I was a kid I was first bullied and later I had to really put an effort into making friends with people, I was rejected a lot (I assume because I was a girl, but I acted like a boy, because later when I started hanging out with boys this all got easier) and I don’t want to put myself in that situation again. this isn’t a critique of anyone, it’s alright to not be super enthusiastic about a possible friendship, and that’s probably exactly what I have to remind myself of: it’s ok if people don’t want to be ‘besties’ with me and I don’t have to try to convince them of otherwise. I’m already extremely introverted so, in short, I think what I’m saying is that I want to focus my energy on the people who are openly wanting to be good friends with me.

Hi Nadia remember that face tutorial you made days (or weeks) ago? It was on how to draw faces, with otabek as the model. I just wanted to thank you because so far that has been the only tutorial that has helped me with drawing. I'm still a beginner and haven't drawn much at all, but my only successful attempts at drawing faces were made by following your tutorial. Thanks again, love you❤❤

OH MY GOSH! That’s so good to hear!! I hope you’re making progress! (•̀ᴗ•́)و ̑̑

But I think it was obvious that I didn’t put very much effort in that “””tutorial”””… I didn’t really think anyone would want to use my tutorial for,,, you know, actual drawing ahah. Had I known, I would’ve made a better, not-so-half-assed one!

Do you want me to?? I could try! I’ll even try making a tutorial with more angles for the faces if you want ;o; I know i suck at explaining and teaching, but if you guys really want a proper tutorial from me i will sure as heck try my best!

It’s been 5 years since Edd Gould has passed away and he is very much loved and missed.

Only recently have I become a fan of eddsworld, and I have met many nice fans and I’ve heard wonderful things about Edd and I’ve seen his work and I can only wish that I had learned about him sooner.

And even if I didn’t know this man personally, I woke up today with the weather so clear and bright and warm - it was so welcoming and relaxing, I was wondering how the day could seem so lovely. 

But I guess I know why now, haha.

Miss and Love you, Edd, and I hope things are pleasant and you can see us from where you are - I hope you can be proud and know that we love you and that you love us.

Rest in peace, to a wonderful creator, an extraordinary friend to some, and a beloved family member to others. ♥

I got an awesome opportunity to go to the Ottawa School of Art yesterday to do some life drawing and it was awesome. 

I’ve been once before, sometime last year. But at the time I was super insecure about my art and couldn’t really find the experience enjoyable. but this time. 

I loved the gesture drawing, where we’d only have five minutes to get the pose the model was doing down onto paper. And these poses ranged from like easy, to incredibly difficult depending on where you were in the room. 

I think it was more fun because I’ve been really lose with my style lately. I haven’t been agonizing over every detail. I’ve been having some good flow. 

and my drawing turned out so good, ugghhhhh.
