but at the gallery i do

A wild izuocha appears


Hi there, here’s another batch of  images from [hk]. Normally i wouldn’t include the ones that didn’t need any translation but i just couldn’t resist, they are just too good. All from this gallery from hk’s pixiv, be careful since it has some nsfw pics. If you like her art be sure to follow her twitter, she keeps posting her art there from time to time while her pixiv is a bit dead. Link is here

Also do yourself a favor and check out fantranslator tumblr, here, he has a bit of everything from this fandom translated including more hk izuocha comics, as well as more experience in this kind of thing

If as an artist you want your art removed just ask and i’ll delete this publication right away

もしアーティストさんはあなたのファンアートが取り除きたいて私に連絡してお願いします

let me talk about my own art for a while.

i personally am not happy with how colorless my art feels. even when i am colorblind and coloring is super hard for me it shouldnt still stop me from trying but every time i try to do more colorful things it looks so awful to me?

my art also lacks expression. i feel like all of my pictures the characters have the same face over and over again. i guess its just the eyes that bother me because im not sure how they even work haha 
but everyone seems so. emotionally dead.

the poses and stuff is just. off. its repetitive, its boring, there’s no perspective in my art at all. 

the backgrounds are way too simple and plain. then again what in the world do you draw as a background?? 

lack of creativity is also something i have an issue with. i just. dont come up with anything. its all blank.

but its mostly the colors though. looking at my archive / gallery on dA its just. bland. boring. repetitive. i really need to learn to get out of my comfort zone and actually try something new.

im writing this as a way for myself to realize i need to step up my game so please no need to message me about it thank u <3

climax-witch  asked:

What do you do when you visit Salem?? I've always wanted to go myself

Hi! :) The very first time that I went to Salem, I went to Count Orlock’s Nightmare Gallery. That museum has large and very real-looking statues of famous monsters and villains from various horror movies. I always go to The Witch Museum to learn the history of the Salem Witch Trials. I visited The House of Seven Gables last year which was very interesting and we were allowed to go inside the old house and go through secret passageways. I always go into one of the haunted houses as well, where you walk through a dark passageway and you never know what’s around the corner (this is perfect if you want a good scream)! Salem is famous for its Burying Point so that’s always interesting to stop by and look at. By the end of the day, I am either sitting on a bench in the park eating caramel popcorn or I am at Pickering Wharf to look at the pretty fall foliage. There’s a lot more to do in Salem but I hope I was able to help!

anonymous asked:

So I just saw your post about Magnus having hobbies. Do you have any favorites?

aludjifkdsf 

I can’t believe you’re forcing me at Gun Point to do this. Also… Once again- a long winded answer to a short question. BUT if you’re out there writing a fic and want to give Magnus a hobby… Pls consider: 

  • Art Connaisseur  
    • How else does he meet cool people to hang out with? 
    • He finds all the new gallery openings and underground art shows. Tbh, he’s gone nearly every night meeting up with new young artists and finding out what’s popular now 
    • He has a CRAZY good eye and nearly always finds people before they become famous 
    • Like, he was out there buying Georgia O’Keefe way before she was famous 
  • Chess Grand Master
    • Actually, still loves attending competitions 
    • Weirdly he loves losing a lot because it reminds him that he can still improve even if he’s been playing a long time (of course he almost never loses, but that’s neither here nor there) 
    • Plays with Raphael a LOT- they have a standing Thursday Night Friend Date

Q&A Transcript with Alex Hirsch at MomoCon 2017

Question: Before you decided to make Bill the main bad guy, did you have another character in mind that would have been the villain? 

Alex: Yeah, um that’s a good question. Uh, so, when we came up with the villain of the show, I knew that… I knew that Bill was involved. And I knew that Ford had disappeared due to some deal gone wrong with some villain next to the mystery of how Gravity Falls was all assembled. 

Um, but, I didn’t yet decide that Bill was that character in the very beginning, y'know? I had always imagined it was some sort of evil character somewhere kinda hidden in the woods. I wasn’t sure I could go with the Bill idea cuz I thought it would be too much like Twin Peaks, but as we got further along the series we discussed it among the repairs and we were like, ‘none of our other villain ideas were as good.’ Bill, Bill was weirder than anything else we thought of. Um, I remember there were other ideas. Strange monsters and government officials; some kind of cthulhu– some weird crazy old man. But nothing was ever better than Bill, so it ended up sticking. Probably somewhere around, y'know, season one– midway through season one, we started thinking we might be– might be on point.

Q: Was Grunkle Stan ever aware of McGucket’s connection to his brother? 

 A: Oh, oh that’s such a good question. Wait, let me think about that for a second… Uh… lemme see… I don’t think so. I don’t think Stan was ever aware of McGucket’s connection to his brother. Because, by the time Stan traded identities with Ford, uh… McGucket had already gone off the deep end– Was already y'know, had already created the Society of the Blind Eye; had already lost his own memory. So Stan would’ve really only known McGucket as a local obnoxious fisherman. 

And McGucket, probably somewhere deep in the back of his mind, was eerily just drawn to Stan in a way he just couldn’t put his finger on, because he thought maybe he knew him, but– I don’t– I think Stan was ignorant of that. Um, I think Stan… I think Stan looking through the journals probably should’ve put two and two together, but Stan’s not the best at book-learnin’. Uh, so… my guess is Stan wouldn’t have known despite that uh, that there’s a lot of tumblr art out there showing them as like the Scooby-Doo gang. I don’t think Stan ever really knew McGucket before.

Q: What episode do you believe came out the strongest and the most well rounded overall? And is it the same as your personal favorite episode?

 A: Oh gosh. Um. That’s a great question. Hmm… I probably feel, personally, that the strongest episode is uh, “Not What He Seems” just because it’s such a dramatic episode. Like, we know– We’ve never had an episode that dramatic. But, when we first pitched it to Disney executives… they thought it was bad. [laughs] Um, Because it didn’t have a lot of jokes in it? Like, I remember normally when we’re pitching our episode, executives can usually gauge how good they are by how much people laugh. People didn’t really laugh for that one, because it’s really tense. So we thought, maybe we’d screwed up. But, when the animation came back we were like, 'Oh! It’s GOOD that it’s tense. Like, it worked!’ Um, So, I dunno if that’s my favorite episode, but I think– that’s the episode we should’ve won an Emmy for, and I’m still pissed we didn’t. [laughs]

In terms of favorite episode, like… I dunno. I think the first episode that I really felt that the show was really starting to feel the way I wanted it to– “Time Traveler’s Pig” in season one. Like, that was an episode where Dipper had an interesting story, and Mabel had an interesting story, and uh, felt nostalgic, and based around the summer, and had a big secret callback to even previous episodes, so– I just remember when we first just got that episode back in color, I was like, 'hey I think maybe I like how I’m making this cartoon show,’ so I think that has a particularly fond place in my heart, y'know.

Q: Is Disney bringing you to SDCC or NYCC later this year to promote the journal and other books coming out? 

 A: Right, um, yeah, Disney– Disney… Disney-general and me, have like– we’re divorced. Like, they kept the house, and the pets. Y'know what I mean? It’s… we don’t like get dinner or anything. But, the Disney Publishing department, separate from Disney Television, they’re really cool, and enthusiastic, and energized. And they wanna make new cool stuff. Um, so I think it’s possible I might be at D23 this year, and it’s possible I might be at Comic Con, but I don’t have anything confirmed yet.

Q: In the scene where Bill is trying to convince Ford to join him in the Fearamid, were there any other jokes or story beats that were considered? 

 A: Which episode specifically are you talking about? [Q: The We’ll Meet Again scene.] Yea yea yea, We had a– Every scene that you’ve ever seen in the show has a ton of ton of stuff we’ve thought of and had to cut for time or other reasons. Um, I remember there was definitely a version of that where Bill was a lot trickier. Like, he sort of more successfully lied to Ford about like: 'We’re actually going to make the world a better place. Though I present myself as this chaos lunatic that’s just my personality.' Like, 'here’s ways in which we’ll IMPROVE the universe.' 

Um, but it felt out of character. We thought it was much more like Bill to just draw smiley faces in oceans and eat the sun and just– hope, that the force of his charisma could convince Ford that that was a good idea. But uh, I feel like– I feel like Bill can be really really tricky when he wants to, but by the time Weirdmageddon showed up he’s so impatient, and he’s so convinced that he won, that he was no longer like, this brilliant chess master he used to be. He’s like, 'alright let’s do it! Do what I want or I’ll eat your face.’ Like, no more– No more, like– He wasn’t as smart a tactician as he used to be, y'know?

Q: Was “We’ll Meet Again” always the song you were going to use? 

A: Oh yeah, it had to be that. It was like… I think I’d just seen Dr. Strangelove recently around that time and it stuck in my head. It seems to me, if Bill has a taste in music, it would be, like, old timey music that ranges from either weird to obnoxious to obscure. 

Uh, Disney wanted me to cut it cuz it cost them a bunch of money to get the rights, even though it’s so old, it still cost them money to get the rights. And I just… said, please. Over and over and over again. I would send an e-mail that just said, 'please.’ And send another e-mail that said, 'please.’ And I would send another e-mail that said– Yeah. [laughs] Eventually I wore them down that they’re like, 'alright we’ll spend thousands of dollars.’ [laughs]

Q: Are real comics coming? 

 A: You want comics? Would you read Gravity Falls comics?
[Audience screams]
[Alex leans his ear forward]
[AUDIENCE SCREAMS]

A: It’s a terrifying noise isn’t it, Michael? I was at a… Gravity Falls gallery, and like, they didn’t tell us how many people would show up, and it was like, THAT noise echoing from every corner. And uh like, I think I lost a year of my life. My hair started going gray, and it was like, 'oh my god, this is too much love! It’s terrifying.' 

Comics. I would love to do Gravity Falls comics. Um, I have so many… One of the tough things about a half hour show like Gravity Falls is every now and then we think of an idea that we really liked, but it was too short for a half hour; 'oh that’s only five minutes of story’– Or it’s too specific and weird. And so I have tons and tons of ideas of the show that y'know we’d like to explore this character, we’d like to show this secret, this storyline. So, I’d love to do comics. But, that’s up to Disney Publishing, and I’m trying to convince them. So, hopefully, I’ll have something exciting to announce in not too long.

Q&A with Stan and Soos

Q: Is Dipper adorable or manly?  

Stan: Dipper smells like baby wipes. Even if I cut off all my shoulder hair, and taped it to him, he wouldn’t be 1/10th as manly I am.

Q: What would you do if Mabel told you she had a date to prom? 

Stan: I would… invite the gentleman over, have some coffee, tie him to a chair and interrogate him for 10 hours, and maybe throw him in the pit. [shrug] Hands off my neice, kid!

Q: What would happen if Soos met Giffany again? 

Soos: Oh yea, I recently downloaded this couple’s therapy sim? Uh, I think she and I would have to talk about our issues and pass around a conversation pillow, and really work out these struggles. Cuz she’s got some problems, dude.

Q: Soos, why are you so perfect? 

Soos: Yeah, uh, my grandma said that a whole bunch of doves flew down and formed the shape of a perfect angel over my crib. I dunno, dude I guess I was just born that way.

So I just did a post about how I manage my time and my daily schedule and such, and I felt like this part is really important and was getting lost in the minutiae of my day, so I made it a separate post. I was talking about various ways in which my life is not necessarily “normal”, like how I go to bed at 7:30, which people treat as one of my eccentricities, and rightly so. But while it is weird it speaks to the crux of my life philosophy, which I’ve spoken about before as regards dealing with anon hate:

My time and attention are finite resources and they have a value I can bestow where I wish. If something is not necessary to survive, does not solve a problem, or does not provide joy, I stop doing it.

I pay my bills and do my dishes and wash my clothes because you have to do those things. I engage in activism and try to stay current on the news because I believe I have a moral duty to contribute to society, and I run because it’s good for my heart and my body. I have friendships, engage in fandom, play the ukulele, write, go to concerts and movies and art galleries because it brings me joy to do so.

Going to bed early solves a problem for me: I wasn’t doing anything useful with that time anyway, I wasn’t enjoying myself or feeling happy. If I wasn’t getting any benefit from that time, how could I put it to better use? Sleeping is beneficial, so I tried that, and it worked; I get more sleep and I don’t miss anything I can’t catch up with. Work doesn’t make me especially happy or fulfill me in ways we could all wish, but that’s okay. Work is necessary to survive, so I do it. I don’t date much because I tried dating semi-recently and the promise of future joy did not outweigh the lack of joy that dating itself brought to my life; it was painful, ugly, and boring, and so I stopped doing it. 

The dating thing may change in the future, if eventually the promise of a relationship becomes more enticing, but it’s an example of how the pursuit of happiness is non-standard, and you are allowed to weigh the cost against the payoff based on your own personal feelings, not on society’s dictates. Because it turns out when you are doing what makes you happy, when you feel joy, you could give two shits about what everyone else thinks should make you happy. 

Sometimes, what brings me joy is sitting on the couch listening to a podcast I’ve already heard ten times and playing a stupid mindless flash game; I often catch myself thinking “I could be doing something more useful, something cooler, something more active” and remind myself “But this is making me happy, and it’s what I’m capable of doing right now.”

“Does this make me happy” or, if you’re struggling with happiness, “Does this calm and soothe me” is a great metric for what you should be doing in life when you are on your own time. It’s a good way to check in with yourself and lead yourself towards a more fulfilling life on your own terms. 

If you are out at a bar with friends, stop and ask, does this make me happy? Because there is no way in which asking that does not help. If being at a bar doesn’t make you happy and if it’s the only time you see your friends, maybe it’s time for a change; you are now free to pursue something that will make you happy. If being at a bar doesn’t make you happy but your friends do, and this is one way to bond with them of many, then it’s a cost with a later benefit, and you’ve now become conscious that while you aren’t happy right this minute, you are paying into future joy. And if you like being out at a bar with friends and are having a good time, then you’ve reaffirmed to yourself that you are happy and this is where you want to be. And affirming that you are feeling joy is a great thing to do. 

You don’t have to be happy all the time – but on your own time, when work and chores and the duties of the day are done, you should devote yourself to finding joy in whatever form that takes, be it a nap or a party or a date or your kids or, I don’t know, watching people make fake food on YouTube. 

Believing that your time and attention have value and should only be bestowed on the worthy means coming to believe that you have value, which is so hard to do that I’ll take any shortcut I can get. Devoting your time time and attention only to what is necessary or what is pleasurable means learning a great deal about what you value, and I truly believe leads you to a more fulfilled life.

So when people ask me about time management, I have real tips and tricks to offer – but I think the most important think I can offer is the suggestion that whatever time you have, you should believe it has value because it is yours, and you should direct it appropriately.

She has Seen Things

Based on @wayfindertrio​‘s hilarious text post! Thanks for letting me doodle it! :D

Bonus commentary from the heart hotel peanut gallery:

a flat color commission i did for buttisart, one of my fave people! they’re actually each a playlist cover for an upcoming collaborative eridan & feferi mix – and having gotten to listen to a sneak peek of it, lemme tell you, it’s gonna be RAD. (not that that’s surprising at all bc their mixes are always fan tas tic)

i am currently open for commissions and my commission info is here!

(do not remove my commentary, please!)

Age old topic here, but:

“fanart/fanfiction isn’t REAL art/fiction. why are you wasting your talents on fancontent when you could be making original work?”

I’ve seen a lot of great rebuttals to this. Lotta arguments detailing the merits of fanwork. Lotta anecdotes of published writers who got their start in fanfiction. But also, I offer this:

Why should we care if what we create meets the standard of “real”?

Better said: why do people get so offended when a talented person isn’t pursuing that talent in the most prestigious way possible? A talented writer doesn’t owe the world a book. A talented artist doesn’t owe the world an art gallery. People shouldn’t be pressured to pursue the highest order of acclaim in their field for their passions to be treated like they’re worth anything.

Maybe the world’s most brilliant astrophysicist is teaching 6th grade science in Oklahoma. Maybe this person could be leading NASA into a new age of space travel if only they took up that kind of engineering job. But maybe they hate the stress of high profile work, of designing and prototyping for massive projects. Maybe this person just loves kids, and loves teaching, and loves Oklahoma. It’s their life. Their work is still real. And that work should not be valued any less because they could, theoretically, be giving society more.

I haven’t tallied my word count in a while, but I’m going to say I’ve written (wiggly-hand-gesture) 750,000 words of fanfiction since I was 14. Three of my works are novel-length. I’ve sunk thousands upon thousands of hours into planning, writing, revising. I’ll probably sink thousands more. Because I like what I’m doing. Because this is what I’m passionate about. I like writing about characters and worlds that I’ve fallen in love with, and I like sharing that work with people who’d appreciate it.

And I have no intention whatsoever right now of writing an original novel, or god-forbid of trying get it published. I can’t fathom the stress that would bring to something I do for fun. That’s not my passion. In fact, that would probably kill it, all for the sake of appeasing people who don’t want to see the value in what I enjoy doing right now.

Having the talent to “do more” than fan content is not an obligation to do more. Forget anyone who thinks your talents exist to meet other people’s standards.

Full version of the piece I made for the Ohana gallery show yesterday! I wasn’t able to visit the gallery that long since I mostly stayed at my art table, but this one went over pretty well from what I’ve heard!

Yeah I did a really predictable disney crossover for the theme of the gallery lol. Hah I’m not really sure how well I translated Moana into 2d that well (its really hard translating 3d characters into 2d while still keeping the style the same, anyways |D) but I think she at least looks like herself xD

I do have a few (good quality without the watermark) prints of this left, so if ya want one, you can order one from my new Etsy shop here!: https://www.etsy.com/listing/521357778/ohana-moana-print?ref=pr_shop

I have a desperate need for content about Mary and Damien being BFFs.

Imagine them in college together, even being roommates. Mary, younger and wild and vivacious. Definitely a party girl, but also possibly a religion major, just a little bit intimidating to most people she meets. Damien, the computer science major, painfully awkward and shy and struggling to define himself, constantly impressed with how well she navigates both of those things. Mary trying to bring him out of his shell, encouraging him to be himself. Damien being someone genuine and comforting to talk to when her other friends or the pressure of living in two totally different worlds got exhausting. They feel each other’s pain and encourage each other, and help out at their local animal shelter.

Do you think she ever had to destroy someone in the past for breaking her special boy’s heart? Do you think he ever gave her a makeover, making her laugh by pointing out Victorian gowns that were absolutely her color? Do you think she ever made the same mistake as MC, showing him a horror movie and then comforting him for the rest of the night? Do you think he ever sighed and adjusted his glasses as he promised, yet again, to fix her computer (but only if she’d come with him to the art gallery so he’d have someone to talk to and wouldn’t feel as awkward)?

Do you think she was there for his Naruto phase? Did SHE have a Naruto phase? Maybe they go back farther than college. Maybe they were friends through their teen years, through all of the embarrassing, awkward, growing-up times.

Do you think she was the first one he came out to?

Just… Give me all of the Mary and Damien BFF headcanons.

honestly i’m so up for gay dc crackships like someone could tell me bane and captain cold are dating and i’d be like HELL YEAH THEY ARE power couple!!!!!! but as soon as people start hitting me up with those straight crackships it’s like… Do Not. end this suffering
