How The Fuck Do Guzma’s Eyebrows Work: An…Open Discussion(???)
as a person who cosplays Guzma, i am having the absolute worst time trying to translate his face onto mine. after thinking about it all day and losing a lot of sleep to it, i think a big part of it is his eyebrows. this fucker has like the world’s worst case of Resting Bitch Face i swear,,
ok so in his official artwork and character model his eyebrows look like this:
so from those references i’d think his eyebrows are something like this:
However, almost unanimously, fan artists depict his eyebrows something more like this:
The biggest differences between canonical depictions and fan depictions are pretty much, in general:
Canon: taper upwards at the end. Fan: taper downwards at the end.
Canon: become thicker towards the temple. Fan: become thicker towards the nose.
Canon: straight. Fan: generally angled, or, somewhat less commonly, curved.
So, I wonder why this is. I literally have no idea. If you think you have an idea of why, I’d actually love to hear it,,
As of right now, I do my eyebrows (and eye makeup in general, I guess) like this when I cosplay Guzma (although it’s still subject to change):
Also, Guzma has like…a really really heavy, low brow. So much so that it pretty much appears as if he has no upper eyelids. That’s really not a thing that actually happens in real life, so that whole issue has me puzzled too, honestly.
(It’s worth noting however, that you can draw Guzma and his confusing eyebrows however the hell you want. It’s your own art, your own interpretation of the character, your own style. I’m not trying to fault anyone or their work, I’m simply trying to figure out how best to do his makeup for cosplay purposes, as I prefer to base the designs of my cosplays off of canonical depictions.)
Jimin hovered over you. Pressing kisses to your nose and cheeks and neck, everywhere except your lips. You two hadn’t reached that stage yet. There was something about actually pressing your lips to his that freaked you out, no matter how much you wanted to do it. Yeah you’ve kissed his cheek and that one time where you bopped his nose but the idea that you would actually kiss the boy you liked sent your heart racing and butterflies in your stomach soaring.
“you’re such a pretty girl” he laughed as his hand roamed over your side, keeping well away from your breast and hips but still enough that he managed to make your legs feel like jelly.
“pretty girl. pretty girl” he sung quietly as he peppered your cheeks with small kisses.
You had your head turned to the side avoiding looking at him in fear you might just kiss him. Why was this such a big deal!? There really wasn’t much involved. Lips against lips. That’s it. All you had to do was turn your hea-
Jimin’s lips touched yours as you did. You both froze, his eyes going wide at the new contact. Five seconds passed. Each heart beat loud and prominent and the only thing you could hear. The two of you just stared at each other, blinking and trying to make sense of what had just happened.
