you seem to be focused on your taemin han au which is fabulous because i love this doggo son he's adorable. but omg i would DIE for your mint eye flipped au where the only 'good' characters are mc, rika and saeran that would be AMAZING.
yeah but … do u really wanna see that level of angst :D
how do you get your lines so smooth? im fairly new to drawing on a tablet but my lines are always shitty and messy so i was wondering if you could give some tips? i love your art btw
First of all, thank you! :D And second of all, I currently do all of my line art in Clip Studio Paint, but my tips should work for any art program in general.
1.) When you’re a newbie to line art, get your sketch as clean and close to the final product as possible. It’ll help make the line art process easier since you don’t have to finagle around with proportions and such during the line art phase.
I, personally, am fucking lazy, so my sketches are fucking shit. When you’re more used to line arting you can kinda just half-ass sketch and fix up the line art to look good as you go. But that’s up to your own personal preference.
2.) I do my line art in very quick strokes that cover as much mileage as possible. To get the best lines, you want to use the least amount of strokes possible, like golf or something.
I also do this for general sketching too, so if you ever thought my sketches looked nice and clean it’s cause I’m basically doing speedrun line art with very little care in how well the line art actually looks.
3.) You can click undo and repeat the stroke as many times as you want. It’s one of the pluses of working with digital art.
4.) It’s also ok to just sketch it out and then clean it up a bit. I do this more for smaller areas and smaller details, like hair. I wouldn’t have to do this if I bothered to cleaned my sketch up more lol
5.) My line art has weight variation to it depending on a number of factors, but the major factor is light source. The lines closer to the light source are thin, while lines further away from the light source are thick. There’s no necessity to do this, I just think it gives the lines more oomph.
6.) You may have noticed that I’m doing the line art in a magenta color (or pink, I actually don’t know the exact color since I have flux on) and not in black (or dark grey, cause I never use black for line art). With black line art, you see the tiniest mistakes so easily and you can spend forever fixing tiny little things. Using a different color helps me get the line art done faster without wasting so much time fussing on things. I change it to dark grey or whatever color I want after I’m done. This tip doesn’t necessarily improve the quality of your line art, but it sure as hell speeds up the process.

Hello!! I just found this blog like 30 seconds ago and !!!! I love it so
far! I couldn’t find a set of rules, I hope I didn’t miss them but
anyways; Could I please ask for romantic hcs with Ace & Robin??
Thank you!! Good luck with your blog lovely 💖💖
A/N: *sits down on the grass* …. this is my first time doing HCs EVER please don’t be too strict on me 🦆 (and thank you so much, I know this request is a bit older but I hope you still think the same about my blog!!!)
Let me tell you guys, Ace is probably one of the most romantic characters in the whole One Piece universe
Is a sucker for anything romantic like ANYTHING
Loves to give as much as he possibly can but gets extremely flustered if his S/O gives something back
“Ohh.. you got this for me? Oh.. Oh my god- I- wow- you’re perfect- I- uh, oh goD”
Gets teased a lot by the other crewmembers but doesn’t care at all, as long as you like it he’s ready to make a fool out of himself for everyone to see
Makes the Whitebeard crew help with things, Thatch with the food, Marco with the right location, Vista with perfect decorations. He even threatens to burn all of their clothes if they don’t do it right…
…gets hit by marco afterwards
Loves to see his s/o smile at his presents/surprises/words etc.
Is very insecure, therefore always asks you about things, “Is this too much?”, “Do you like it?”, “Is this weird?” etc.
Decided to ask Izo for help once, because if Izo doesn’t know the answer then no one does. “do you think they’ll like it?”, both of them once sat the whole night together and scribbled down plans for your anniversary
ALWAYS whispers sweet nothings into your ear, especially when he feels sad about his past :(
tries his best to make you feel wanted, feels like crap if he fails
Fell asleep once while you guys were out having a little walk by the beach
He wouldn’t stop apologizing for a whole week
You just grabbed his face and planted a big kiss on his lips and told him to shut up
He was a red and giggly mess afterwards
UGH!!!! i love ace ლಠ益ಠ)ლ
Might not be as intense as Ace (surprise) but still has a sweet spot for romantic things
Loves to take a walk with her s/o at night, hands intertwined, swaying lightly back and forth
Talks not very much, but the more time you spend together, the more she starts to talk
Always has this cute smile with her eyes closed and head turned slighly to the side,,, YOU KNOW WHICH ONE
Sometimes, when you least expect it, puts a strand of hair behind your ear, stares into your eyes for a few seconds, smiles and then “You’re so cute.”
You melt, you literally just meLT
Tries to teach you how to read poneglyphs, but you fail miserably and just stare at her in awe
She notices quickly but ignores it, just keeps talking and laughs quietly at you staring
“Any questions?” - “Hm…? Oh! Yes. I mean no. No, no questions.”
Her favourite thing is when you recommend her a book, because “It reminded me of you and I thought you’d like to read it.”
She doesn’t need all of these extra things or expensive gifts s, your love for her is more than enough
Still brings you expensive things from time to time
“Robin! You didn’t need to get me this! This looks so expensive..” - “It just looked so cute and reminded me of you. I couldn’t help myself.”
You’re heart eyes for her and so am I, so is the rest of the world
I was wondering, like why??? Why does Alex like to be hit? I knew Alex's mom was uh, kinda of a huge jerk //uNDERSTATEMENT//in this AU. But, like why does it make him feel good? What happened that makes him like this now? If you answered it already than I'm sorry ;;, or if it's a spoiler again I'm sorry. ;; I love your account! Your very sweet and kind, have a wonderful day!
he came to like it as he started inflicting the pain himself, he thinks that he deserves it, after every slash he would look at himself into the mirror then he would either scratch or pinch his skin, and the numbing feeling of pain feels soothing to him, until he grew bored, as he gets older he craved for more pain that’s why he let’s himself get beaten up by anyone he picked fights with. He just thinks he deserves this..this body was meant to be broken anyways
I’m gonna try and pick 5 that aren’t universally loved moments in fandom, not that I don’t love The Beach Scene, Elevator Scene and “Welcome Home”, but just wanted to explore other things I found interesting and awesome about R1. :D Thank you for the ask, btw!
5. Orson Krennic ragging on Galen’s choice of farming on Lah’mu. Listen Krennic, farming isn’t exactly easy (neither is working on a giant super weapon, but I digress). I just thought it was a funny introduction to one of my favorite Star Wars villians, since he has such relateable motivations (he just wants to be recognized!!! for what he did!!! he deserves that!!! stoopid Tarkin).
4. Baze Malbus’s “little sister” line to Jyn. This rivals “Welcome Home” in my book, I mean … Jyn has been without a consistent home, let alone any sort of family, for YEARS. To hear such things in the span of days? It just warms my little “found family trope” loving heart. Also I just want Baze to be my space dad.
3. Jyn’s face on the beach of Scarif, giving Cassian that “I swear to the maker, Cassian, if you say something romantic or sentimental and make me cry after all of my walls are on the verge of completely crumbling I will cut you” face. It says so much in such a small look, and I swear I have given that look hundreds of times in my own life.
2. Cassian’s entire opening sequence. I love how he went from comforting and charismatic, to cold and heartless, to self-loathing in the span of SECONDS after killing Tivik. It was then that I knew I was going to fall hard for his character, I live for morally grey characters and coming to grips with their actions, and boy does Cassian deliver all of that (it’s ok bby you’re doing fine.)
1. THIS moment of K2, Cassian and Jyn entering the elevator. To me this was the moment they all realized the magnitude of their undertaking. Jyn sways and fidgets a bit, Cassian’s visibly nervous and drawing a deep breath, and K2 goes “I have a bad feeling about this.” It was such a quick little moment but it said so much to me. While they were stoic and brave in front of their R1 crew, this is where they really let their guard down and let themselves be nervous, but also gather their strength. (also no secret I love these two in their Imperial get-ups so that was a nice plus).
I don't know why but I just want to see your auror!Harry without his bun and then he waves his hair around like a shampoo commercial. P.S. You are an inspiration to artists everywhere and I love your work
What recipes can I make in only a pot or pan with inexpensive ingredients? (Btw I love your blog)
Hey Anon! Thank you for the kind words :D
For inexpensive staples you should look into stocking:
Rice - one big bag can last usually 2 or more months but its worth the investment Sugar - one bag can last a while Beans - I’m looking at dried as they’re less expensive than canned, but you can buy a small bag a week if you want. Vinegar - For most recipes I’d recommend Red wine or Apple Cider vinegar, but white can work as well. A large bottle isn’t too pricey and will last a while.
Inexpensive ingredients can range, but my usual go-to when I’m budgeting my meals more are these: Lentils (dried is less expensive then cans) Another type of beans (chickpea, Kidney, Black-eyed) Cooking Onion (you can usually buy a bag for $2 and they last a month) Garlic Tomato Mushrooms Cabbage Carrots Soy sauce and or hot sauce
Using these ingredients you can make a few different recipes.
These are my own, and based on what I’ve made in the past. I don’t now your access to spices, and spices can be quite expensive so I’ll leave them as optional, however flavour will be better with spices.
Vegetable Stock Veggie stock is super easy to make, and requires your veggie scraps, a pot and a freezer. For me, it saved me about $3 a week. Although seeming like a small amount, that’s ~$156 a year.
As you cook more, you can cut off the ends of the veggies (such as the tops of carrots, the ends of broccoli or mushrooms, the skins of garlic or onion). Rather than throwing them out, you can store these ends in a bag or container and collect them in the freezer. when your container is full, put them in a pot and cover with water. Add any herbs (oregano, Thyme, Bay) and salt and pepper to taste. Bring your pot to the boil and then reduce to a simmer. Cook for 25-35 minutes. Once done, drain the broth into a bowl, you can just try to pour it carefully or if you have a strainer to use, drain it through the strainer. Discard the boiled veggie scraps. You can store the broth in the fridge for up to 4 days or the freezer for up to 5 months.
Lentil Cabbage Soup If you have been collecting veggie scraps or have some homemade veggie stock available to you you can easily make this dish. Its a quick, light meal that you can also add cooked rice to if you desire.
½ cup sliced Cabbage 1/3 cup lentils (or another bean) - pre-cooked 1 clove minced Garlic Pepper and salt to taste 2 cups Vegetable stock 1 tsp soy sauce or hot sauce ½ cup cooked rice (optional)*
Bring your veggie stock to a boil with the pepper and garlic. Mix in the hot sauce or soy sauce. Taste and add salt to your preference. Add the lentils and if using rice, spoon the rice out into a bowl. Add your cabbage to the soup and cook for 1-2 minutes. Once the cabbage is cooked, pour into the bowl over rice(if using) and enjoy!
*You can use rice, pasta or quinoa for this recipe
Red beans and rice Assuming you have invested in a large bag of rice to use for the month, this is a great protein packed starch to have along side veggies.
1 Cup rice 1 ¾ cups water ½ cup red beans or lentils ½ cup chopped tomato Salt to taste
If using white rice and pre-cooked lentils/beans, add the rice and tomato to a pan with your salt. Add 1 ¾ cups of water and bring to the boil. once at the boil, reduce to medium heat and cook for 15-18 minutes. At the 13 - 15 minute mark, add your beans/lentils and continue cooking. Once the water has boiled away, fluff your rice.
If using brown rice
pre-cooked lentils/beans, add the rice and tomato to a pan with your salt. Add 2 ½ cups of water and bring to the boil. reduce to medium heat and cook for 25 - 30 minutes.
At the 23 - 25 minute mark, add your beans/lentils and continue cooking. Once the water has boiled away, fluff your rice.
You can also add Mexican chili spice or paprika to the rice to add flavour.
Cabbage Rolls This recipe will use most of the ingredients listed above, and can be used to make lunches or dinners for a while. The lentil filling will last in the fridge for half a week to 5 days.
Cabbage - take off the leaves and use the largest outside leaves for this recipe 1 ½ Cup Lentils (cooked) 1 medium Tomato diced (or ½ large tomato) 2-3 Sliced Mushroom ½ diced Onion 2 cloves Garlic, minced 1 tsp soy sauce or hot sauce (different flavour depending on what you add) 1 cup water Pepper and Salt to Taste Recommended but not required - 1 tsp Mexican chili spice, 1/2 tsp ginger or ginger powder
Bring a pot of water to a boil, in this pot you will be blanching the cabbage leaves. This will help wrap the filling in the cabbage leaves without the rolls coming undone or being too bitter. Submerge a few leaves at a time and cook for 1 to 3 minutes. Set the cabbage leaves aside and begin working on the filling.
For the filling Have the lentils cooked ahead of time or use a 400ml can of lentils for this. In your pan, add a few TBS of water or vegetable stock instead of oil to cook your Onion and mushroom. Add the onion and mushroom to the pan and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes or until soft. Add the garlic and any spices you’re using excluding Salt. This includes soy sauce or hot sauce(I’d recommend Sriracha). Add your tomato and ½ the extra water. After 7-10 minutes add the Lentils. If your pot is drying out, add more water to the pot as you cook. Since you’re not using oil, the risk of your dish sticking is higher so you want to keep a layer of water/sauce in the pot while cooking. Cook for 10 -13 minutes, and keep adding water up to the 8 minute mark. Once the filling starts looking like a saucy ‘meat like’ filling you can take it off the heat.
Spoon your filling into you cabbage leaves and roll them up. You can store the filling on its own and make up blanched leaves or store the full rolls for almost a week.
Cole Slaw This is a simple oil and vinegar dressed coleslaw,
1 cup Cabbage - Cut into thin strips ½ cup Carrot - cut into thin strips
¼ cup vinegar 1tsp sugar Salt and pepper to taste 1 clove diced Garlic Optional (but reccomended) 2TBS Olive or peanut oil
Prepare the dressing first, using the Vinegar, Salt, pepper, sugar, garlic and Oil. (note: The oil makes this recipe more palatable, but its not required. This dressing is to wilt down the cabbage and carrot and add some acid to the recipe).
Cut up your carrot, and cabbage. Add to a bowl with your vinegar dressing and let rest for 15-20 minutes or until the cabbage wilts. This can be stored for 1 - 1 ½ week.
Lentil Slaw This is a little off the beaten path, but a nice no-cook meal like the cole slaw above.
1 cup Cabbage - Cut into thin strips ½ cup Carrot - cut into thin strips ½ cup lentils (cooked) Optional - 1/2 cup Diced Tomato
¼ cup vinegar 1tsp sugar Salt and pepper to taste 1 clove diced Garlic Optional (but reccomended) 2TBS Olive or peanut oil
Prepare the dressing first, using the Vinegar, Salt, pepper, sugar, garlic and Oil. (note: The oil makes this recipe more palatable, but its not required. This dressing is to wilt down the cabbage and carrot and add some acid to the recipe). I highly recommend Apple Cider vinegar or Red Wine vinegar for this recipe but you can use white vinegar.
Cut up your carrot, and cabbage. Add to a bowl with your vinegar dressing and let rest for 15-20 minutes. Prepare your lentils and diced tomato (if using). You can add an extra bulb of garlic to your lentil mix if wanted.
Once the Cabbage is wilted, mix in your lentils (and tomato if using). Once mixed you can serve.
———————————————————————————————————– One little note - Most of these recipes I do by sight, so I’ve never written them out until now. The ratios may need a little tweaking when you make them so taste as you go. I tend to eat low salt, low sugar so my taste is very different from the average westerner.
