Russian Names 101

How to accurately name and reference Russian characters

1. Titles

The main difference between Russian nobility and western nobility when titles are concerned is that the titles Prince and Princess refer to higher-ranking nobility rather than royalty

2. First names

This is pretty simple, but note that the pronunciations in Russian may vary from how we use them in English, especially Anastasia/ Anastasiya (a-na-sta-SEE-a) and Mariya/ Maria (MAH-ri-ya)

3. Middle names/Patronymics

This is the most important factor. Middle names are not other first names, but derived from the father’s name with a special suffix:

If the father’s name ends in a consonant or an o: the suffix -ovna or -vna is added for the daughter’s middle name and -ovich or -vich for the son’s.

Example: Sofia Alexandrovna Rostova (Sofia, daughter of Alexander Rostov)

If the father’s name ends in I or Y: the suffix -evna is added for a girl and -evich for a boy

Example: Anastasia Nikolaevna Romanova (Anastasia, daughter of Nikolai Romanov)

If the father’s name ends in A: the suffix -ichna or -inichna is added for a girl and -ich for a boy

Example: Natalya Ilyinichna Rostova (Natalya, daughter of Ilya Rostov)

4. Surnames

This works similarly. Most surnames have a masculine and feminine form. The Masculine form is the default, used in plurals when referring to more than one person with the same surname, unless all people being referred to are female. The masculine and feminine forms work like this:

Surnames ending in -ov, in, ev: add an a to the end to make it feminine (ex. Borodin and Borodina)

Surnames ending in -sky: change to “skaya” (ex. Bolkonsky/Bolkonskaya)


Okay so up until like I wanna say 4 months ago, no one told me how to accurately use reference images. So I wanna show you how much they actually help:

This is a bat I sketched earlier today, I made this just from memory. No looking at photos before hand. Nada. 

This is when I used a reference image and I will show you also the system of how I have it setup:

Having your reference image set up so that you can “copy” it works best for me. Depending on how you have your work area setup, do what you want to and see what works best. Honestly I don’t think there really is any wrong way how to do it but there probably is gonna be a better way, so don’t worry too much.

As you can see having a reference can be a lifesaver if you are having a hard time. Also if you are using a reference and you still cannot draw the creature well (or what ever else you are drawing) put the image up and trace over it again and again, make sure that you pay attention to every detail as you trace. Afterwards try using the reference again.  Also you might not get it dead on but the reference should be a guide, you should hone your own skills to make the drawing.

Wait Krishna?? As in hindu of the incarnations of Vishnu, the flut player Krishna??? Why is he wearing a fedora?? what is going on??? I need to know which anime (or game)this is!!!

Yup, that’s him! It’s from the video game Shin megami tensei IV Apocalypse~

I don’t wanna give you spoilers if you decide to play but p much all SMT games (including the Persona series which is a spin off of SMT) have a vast array of deities, demons, mythological creatures, cryptids, and more. From tons of dif religions and cultures and just ahhh I really enjoy the series, u can probs tell haha.

Idk if the games might come off as offensive though b/c they do make accurate references to various religions and mythologies but it’s also a work of fiction so there’s some things that are v different. (for instance I don’t really agree with the interpretation of the Christian God but I’ve never been the type to boycott games, movies, and ect b/c of my religious beliefs so I enjoy the series anyways *shrug* just figured i should give a warning b/c so far in-game Krishna isn’t exactly depicted as a good guy but neither is Odin or Dagda so dfhhg a lot of the deities aren’t characterized as v nice tbh. Danu is nice tho and some Egyptian gods have been p sweet and various gods from Japanese mythology ofc. but yeha im babbling now so ill shut up pfft)

1. What is a dental dam? 2. Are female condoms as effective as male condoms?

1. A dental dam is a piece of square latex used as protection to cover the vulva or anal region during oral sex or other direct contact. They can protect against the STIs that may come with body fluids, but won’t protect against things like body lice. To use a dam, you or your partner holds it against their vulva or anus as they receive oral sex.

2.  First, a quick note on terminology: While they’re commonly called “male” and “female condoms,” it’s actually more accurate to refer to them as external and internal condoms. That’s because not everyone who has a penis is male, and not everyone who’s male has a penis; likewise, not everyone who’s female has a vagina, and not everyone who has a vagina is female (plus, internal condoms are also used for anal sex, and external condoms can go on sex toys). Calling them internal and external is more accurate, and doesn’t erase transgender people.

To answer your question: Very nearly. According to the CDC, when worn *in the vagina*, internal condoms are comparable to external condoms at preventing HIV, other STIs, and pregnancy. There’s not much scientific evidence on how effective internal condoms are at preventing HIV and other STIs when used *for anal sex,* but we do know HIV can’t travel through the nitrile barrier of an internal condom. According to Planned Parenthood, internal condoms have an ideal efficacy of about 95%, where the traditional condom hits 98%. But in typical use, the latex external condom falls at about 82%, and the female condoms falls to about 79%.

Also, internal condoms are safe to use with any kind of lubricant, whereas latex external condoms like the ones we supply at Swat aren’t safe to use with oil-based lubes. Additionally, the internal condom can be worn in the vagina for hours, so one can put one in ahead of time to cut down on fumbling before sex. And they’re latex free, so that’s one less allergy to deal with.

The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999) dir. Anthony Minghella.


I could already tell that this was made after Good Will Hunting. I bet Matt Damon was casted for Ripley because of his role as Will. 

Funny what money and class status can do for you.

Digging the fast paced nature of this film. Ripley is smart and he takes steps in advance. He handled his double life so well. I would crack under the pressure. Clark Kent and Superman reference used accurately.

Jazz, Jazz, Jazz. Love, love, love.

What beautiful settings. I want to travel, please. 

Ripley seems to be genuinely enjoying his time. This is why it is such a nightmare. He was honest with Dickie and loved him but those feelings were not reciprocated. Most people fear that but Ripley’s reactions are to a super dramatic degree. 

Also, bless that Peter and Ripley became a couple. All the gay tensions throughout the movie weren’t in vain.

this has been happening with increasing frequency so I have to say somethin

when commissioning someone, make sure you have all the information and payment ready!! !

I’ve had people approach me who

  • don’t know what they want to commission. I can work with a subject you don’t have a clear idea for, but when there’s no subject.. things get a little dicey.
  • have the subject but don’t have an accurate reference and then correct me on everything that they neglected to mention, or have a Super Nitpicky 6-page-long Reference which would take hours to figure out.
  • don’t know my rates (it’s $25USD/hr for reference) which is fine, and I understand if you don’t have enough money. I can’t cut it back for you though; it’s my job.
  • do know my rates, but then don’t have the payment on them at the time. Not all artists want payment upfront, but I do, because it’d save me from doing the work and then ending up with ‘I’m broke rn’ as payment.
  • don’t want to pay. Again, this is my job, as with most other artists. Don’t be awful.

it’s.. common courtesy, y’know? Make the job easier for them and yourself. If you’re waiting for your favourite artist to open for commissions, have all the information you need, set aside a payment (even if it’s a down payment, many artists are open to discussion on this) and be patient.
If you don’t have all the resources ready, DON’T APPROACH THEM when they open! Otherwise, you’re wasting time, get yourself branded as a client who isn’t ready, and then you’ll get shuffled off the list in place of someone who IS ready.

Our internet is not working and my mam just said to me that she thinks she’s fully capable of killing someone and I never laughed so hard but honestly “customer care” is not an accurate way to refer to these people

the worst thing is you can tell they’re americans because they deride american english as “anglish” which is hilarious because angles are the people who settled england and are typically seen as “true” english by the white supremacists of england and it would be more accurate to refer to a reactionary strain of english. where do they think “anglo” comes from?
