both reblogged

✧・゚:*Giveaway*:・゚✧

Thank you guys so much for all of the support!! The notes, the comments.. I know it sometimes doesn’t seem like anyone reads tags, but trust me, I do. And it means so much to me when you take the time to say something about it, even when it may not seem like much. And of course, thank you for deciding my blog was something worth following, even if only for a little while.

So in celebration of having reached 1k followers, I’m doing a little giveaway for you guys. 2 single character commissions will be given out by the draw of a hat name generator. 

Rules:

  • You have to be following me either here, or on my art-only blog.
  • Both reblogging and liking this post count as an entry, but you may only reblog once, and only to a single blog.
  • I will be accepting entries until December 24th
  • Winners will be announced December 26th
  • Winners will need to have their PMs or ask boxes opened so I can contact them. 
  • If a winner does not respond within 24 hours I will choose another winner. 

If anyone has any questions or if I forgot some important detail, send me an ask!

advice to white artist: when making characters of color (especially black and brown characters) don’t just;;; draw a white person and then change the skin tone. believe it or not its quite obvious to tell when you still had a white character in mind (still has the small lips, triangle nose, etc) and only made them black or brown in a half ass attempt to be diverse

actually look at features people of color have and study them please

It’s time for another giveaway~

I have a LOT of dice hanging around this house doing nothing–doubles of sets I already have, doesn’t fit my aesthetic, whatever the reason, they’re perfectly good but didn’t make the collection cut. So, I want to share them with someone who’ll appreciate them! The winner of this giveaway will receive one full pound of random dice! (I’ll pay shipping.) The actual number will vary depending on the mix, but that’s somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 dice

Rules:

  • Must be following me! New followers count too.
  • Likes and reblogs both count for an entry! You may reblog as many times as you like.
  • You can get a THIRD entry by submitting a picture of your own dice to my blog! (One entry per person this way.) Depending on how many submissions I get, not all may be posted, but every single one I receive will count for an entry.
  • Do not tag your reblog as “giveaway,” it can lead to the notes getting messed up and no one wants that.
  • Winner will be chosen by RNG on October 1st, 2017.
  • You MUST have your askbox open and MUST be comfortable giving me a shipping address.

KIND OF AN EMERGENCY POST, TW FOR CONVERSION THERAPY, MENTIONS OF SUICIDE
hey guys, my name is alexander terris. i came out as a transgender boy to my parents around a year and a half ago. while they initially seemed accepting, i found out that they had told various therapists i was delusional. when they told me i was going to see a gender therapist, i was initially overjoyed, thinking this might mean they were considering letting me transition, until i decided to look her up. pictured above are screenshots from articles on her, the last article being from a project she was involved with (the feminine boy project). unless there has been a severe misunderstanding, they are sending me to see a conversation therapist the first week of april (i am typing this march 12th). i am currently on a school field trip, discovered this less than an hour ago, and am terrified of going home. ive texted my mom confronting her about it but she hasn’t replied. if i stop posting on here for an extended period of time, it either means ive had my phone taken away or committed suicide, or both. please reblog this and try to remember me as a boy and not a girl. please, dont let them get away with this.

headcanon ;; Race characteristics for LotR that aren’t just ‘( short/tall ) human with different ( beards / feet / ears )’ –

  • Elves have a second, clear eyelid that gives them the appearance of “sleeping with their eyes open” when they close it in order to rest. They do not often blink.
  • While Hobbits are known to have large feet, few know that they also have disproportionately large and powerful thigh and calf muscles. They can jump higher, in terms of their weight and size, than any other race.
  • Orcs and Uruk-hai feel very little pain, and as such, they tattoo and scar themselves in honor of their gods. Sauron is not one of them. 
  • Dwarves’ eyes have a very small sclera. Instead, the iris is almost all that can be seen. Their pupils can expand in the dark until their eyes are an empty black, enabling them to see in the dark better than any other race. In some kingdoms, blinding a Dwarf by leaving them in the dark for days before flooding them suddenly with light is used as a punishment. 
  • Hobbits have almost twice the number of taste buds as humans. 
  • The ears of Elves can move and tilt towards noises, although the range of their movements is limited. 
  • Dwarves may often be born with six toes. Those that do are called stone-bound, and are said to have a deeper connection to the earth. 
  • Many humans have reported a feeling of being watched when they are with Elves, even when alone with them. This is caused by the Elven fëa / fae / spirit, which is separate from – but linked to – the body, giving some sensitive non-Elves the feeling that there are two people present instead of one. 
  • With age, a Hobbit’s hair may become mossy green. This is due to faint pigments in their shampoo that collect, very slowly, over the years. 
  • Small sensory organs in Dwarves’ hands and feet help them detect vibrations and minute details in anything they touch. These organs are slightly raised and look similar to callouses. 

People who slam doors and stomp their feet to show how much they want to physically hurt you shouldn’t be trusted
