artist spread

tfw ur trying to write plot but ur brain only provides you with out-of-sequence snippets built on vague ideas and an endless number of potential outcomes that develop and branch out unnaturally over an unspecified timespan

quick proportion tips

- eyeballs are an eyeball width apart
- ears align with the top of your brows to the bottom of your nose, and are the center-point of a profile view
- lip corners line up to the center of each eye
- hands are roughly the size of your face
- feet are the same size as your forearm
- elbows are aligned with your belly-button
- your hands reach down mid-length of your thighs
- both upper and lower legs (individually) are roughly the same size as your torso 
(this is all rough estimates for proportion! feel free to add more to help others)

PSA for Fanfic lovers:

There are so many creative geniuses out there. I truly mean it. 

Writers: You don’t have to be told that writing is hard. But it’s also addicting. Your head gets full of ideas, plots lines and character bios. Do you have any idea how wonderful you are? You create worlds. Characters. You can make us laugh. You can make us cry. And you can make us believe in love. You give us an escape from real life. You are powerful. And you keep us all coming back for more. 

Artists: You take a blank canvas or paper (etc) and turn them into stunning works of art that tells stories themselves. Some are so lifelike, you think they are real enough to touch. To look at art and see the creativity and uniqueness, I truly applaud you for making something out of nothing. Which is what you do. You see in your mind what you want to make, and you do it. That blank canvas becomes something that your mind cooked up!!! That is just…. amazing. 

But I see so many of you get discouraged because lack of feedback. I’ve seen writers and artist’s quit because they think that no one notices their work. 

That’s not the truth though. People do notice your work, they do read your fics. What they don’t always do is reblog. Or comment. Or send asks in praising your work or even like what you made. 

But they need to

Readers: comments, likes, asks and reblogs are the bread and butter to a writer. And to artists. They create all these wonderful works of art, and they share them with us. So like, comment, reblog and recommend. Send asks in praising their work. Let them know how much you enjoyed what they shared with us. 

And do not ever ever ever steal or take credit for someone’s hard work!!!!! That is not right at all. Do not steal what someone worked so hard to create!!!! 

Writers and artists: Don’t be discouraged and don’t quit doing what you love. Continuing writing and creating your masterpieces. Because the world would be a lot duller without them.

This goes out to all writers and artists. To every fandom. You keep those creative juices flowing.

gentle request to artists and designers

In case you haven’t seen the post announcing the GRSHN’s new initiative “Spread Shirts, Spread Help” - gentle reminder is now selling shirts, and all proceeds are being donated to charity!

However, these shirts need to be designed, and who better to design them than the community that has bought the blog to this point and given us this opportunity? So if you would like to help charity by donating a simple, positive, gentle reminder based design to sell, please contact us at gentleremindertumblr@gmail.com and we can get your design on the redbubble store as soon as possible to help charity! You will be completely credited for your work, and thanked on our ‘contributing artists’ page of our website. Feel free to also contact the network if you have any questions!

Even if you can’t design anything, or if you can’t afford a shirt, please spread this post around to anyone who you think will be interested! 

Thank you so much, and I hope you have a lovely day. 

Additional note: You have to be 16 years old or over in order to donate your design; my apologies if this inconveniences or saddens anyone, however thank you so much for your interest!

Trying out a circular calendar for the month of November. I’m planning to fill in my mood and the weather for each section and see how it looks at the end of the month!

can people please stop posting others art/photography without crediting the artist or removing credit. 

creators work really hard and it sucks to see so many amazing posts going around that don’t give the artist the recognition they deserve.

thanks.

Recent pages with inspiration from Pinterest. I’ve been experimenting with watercolour lots recently, still can’t really seem to get the technique right, but at least it adds some colours to my book…

What REALLY Makes me Mad

You know what really makes me mad? It’s when people say “You don’t have to defend him/her because he (or she) isn’t your bias.” People honestly think, that the only reason why I’m defending someone and helping ANOTHER HUMAN BEING OUT is because “I like them”? That’s what really gets on my nerves . I don’t write post and make videos just for attention, and I certainly don’t make these in hopes that one day they’ll see it. I make these things because I care about other people. I make these posts and these videos to share how this made me feel and how our decisions effect the artist. Even if one person sees this and I change their mind that’s all I care about. I make posts because for as hard as our boys/girls work for others to respect our name and fandom, WE should be working just as hard. Jackson said during the GOT7 tour (in the US)that they work hard so that we can be respected. That they may not eat three meals a day but, they push themselves just so that we could be respected. Now here we are yet again, as a fandom, bashing and trashing on one of our own members. It’s one thing to have a random put you down, it’s another thing to have your own fandom put you down. Think about that. Respect others. TREAT THEM LIKE HOW YOU WANT TO BE TREATED. And is it so hard to care about one another?
