To her mother and father, she was a princess. True, she had no title, nor crown, nor castle, but she was the ruler of h e r o w n l i t t l e k i n g d o m , whose borders were the house and meadow on the forest’s edge where her people had lived for generations.
hii i love ur art! <3 how do u do side view people so well? do u use like guidelines n stuff? ❤️❤️
I don’t use many solid guidelines honestly, it’s mostly all practice (profiles have always been one of my favorite things to draw, so I doodle them a lot).
These are my basic guidelines for profiles:
As for placement, some of the notes I made in this post apply to the profile as well (i.e the ear lines up with either the eyes or eyebrows down to the bottom of the nose, the mouth lines up with the top of the jaw, and the eye changes it’s shape when it’s turned). Additional notes for the profile:
Everything else I mostly know from memory or intuition, so sadly I don’t know how to offer you much help besides this. I still struggle with my profiles so I’m always using references, making quick studies, and tweaking my art like crazy to get things right.
Thanks for the ask! I hope this helps a little bit.
hey i wanted to ask if you could make recommendations for bakushima fanfics? i'm curious as to what you're currently reading, what your favorites are and what your thoughts on the fanfics you read are! :)
Boi!!! Okay, I guess I did something like that a long while ago, everything I said about those fics is still 100% valid, after making that list I reread nearly all of them a dozen of times and I’ve loved them all just as much each of them, good great fics those - but since then I’ve read a shitton more, so!! Let’s do this? Let’s do this
My (newer) Favorite Fics:
one to ten by crunchrapsupreme - lotsa pining, acquaintance to friends to lovers, incredibly soft and ridiculously happy it gave me such a warm feeling reading it? Kirishima is so pure it made my heart sing, Kaminari is just as ridiculous and negative as he’s supposed to be and Bakugou’s!!! Perfect I’m sure you’re gonna like this one
out of sight, within reach by potato - no powers AU, high school AU, misunderstandings and jealousy and ridiculous babies in love - Bakugou pines!!! It’s actually!!! A fic from Bakugou’s pov with this ridiculous dork pining!!!! I would have loved it just for that, but honestly anything potato writes is worth reading they’re just so good and know the characters so well !!!
get tough, straight up by quactus - this!!!! damn!!!! fic!!!! it’s useless even to drag this for long, the reason why this fic is between my favorites is straight out the incredible amount of Bakugou and Kirishima acting like a couple while they’re not even aware their liking each other might be mutual - they’re soft, got no personal space at all, care for each other so sweetly seriously it’s so good to read it made my insides melt
all good things need sunshine by shizuumi151 - a flower shop AU from another author I love with all my heart! Go check everything they’ve written they’re honestly a fave, such a good grasp on these two - this fic is sweet (I think I used that word to describe all the fics I’ve recced till now? It’s my fav genre what can I do) flowers make me soft and these two acting like the ridiculous crushing idiots they are surrounded by them is just a recipe to make me happy lbr
it’s pouring out here again by shizuumi151 - no power/high school/basketball club AU and I’m pretty certain I suggested this one already between my favorite Kaminari fics? Cause he’s amazing in this one, he and Sero both - so are Bakugou and Kirishima, obviously, the whole atmosphere of the fic makes me genuinely happy every single time I read this fic (which I’ve done… way too many times in the last month already, honestly… rip this is a fav for sure)
Fight Meby ryonello - no quirks/nurse! Kirishima AU and oh my god this fic is so good - it’s fun? and bright? and Bakugou pines in the most endearing way ever? I spent the whole fic nodding and going same Baku same haha
From Pictures to Wordsby Kivea - snapchat AU snapchat AU snapchat AU!!!! Holy heck!!!! These!!!! NERDS!!!!!!! This is a seriously great fic - Baku/Mina friendship and the squad being it all there and Baku & Deku being on civil terms make it all even better, but g o d Bakugou and Kirishima in this fic. Jesus Christ. I love them so much I can’t even find the words to describe it
little are the things we learn by newamsterdam - a 5+1 fic, 6 PoV total each of them describing the KiriBaku relationship from the eyes of those aorund them - listen. Listen. This might be obvious, because newamsterdam is my absolute fave KiriBaku author, but I live and die for this fic - aside from how I adore the external PoV format in general, every single character is so incredibly IC? And the KiriBaku relationship is so so so well described and complete even if constantly seen from an outsider’s point of view? God, I love this fic. I should reread this fic right now, honestly
Holy shit night the fireworks, the kiss, the everything! That was my favorite part of that chapter and you just breathed beautiful life to it!
awww, thank you so much-! ;v; i truly loved that part of the chapter, and cannot begin to express how many lovely emotions it gave me… i’m honored that you think i even came close to doing right by it. <3 @tyranttortoise truly is an utter genius of a storyteller - i can never hope to shower adequate enough praises upon her ;)
ah, and, to this sweet anon-
heh, the reason i do blonde hair is because i’m blonde myself. it’s taken me forever to have any form of comfort when inserting for Reader characters (thus why so many pieces of my art for Ty’s SSLL chapters tend to focus on the skelebros, not the reader) - and i tend to see brown-haired reader inserts far more commonly (or just inserts that are uncolored sketches/lineart, or have that ‘grey anon’ look), so it’s been a bit of a practice in self-confidence to try to get to a point to put a ‘Reader’ that at least has that trait of myself… and i’d be a liar if i said that the fact that Ty also has blonde hair of a similar length isn’t bonus fuel for that, as it’s a delight to make something for her that she can insert into as well ;D
that said, i’m a total sucker for bringing a smile to your lovely faces, so here:
spent a bit of time recoloring/working this one to substitute brown hair :) <3
i’ve actually got two bigger long term projects going on in the background (one is @swaptalestory - the intro teaser is up, and the first chapter will be up this weekend!<3) and one that i haven’t shared any details on yet… but there’s a heavy insert aspect to it, and i’m working hard to have multiple… shall we say options that different people may be able to jive with. i’m hoping i can pull it off, heh.
i know i’ve recommended this for the second time now but I told you all that this is my fave gendrya fic. the smut doesn’t start right away (which i personally think made it so much better) and it was totally worth the wait honestly just go read this if you haven’t yet because it’s AWESOME
and if you want to read more, here are the links on denbeyondthewall’s smut recs:first,second and third. There are 5 fic recommendations for each link and i hope you find lots that you’ll love, happy reading anon!
