but i am ridiculous too

anonymous asked:

Hey uh.. not to bother you by any means.. but can I get a link to those tips for drawing people crying you did once?? I looked through all the tags and couldn't find it myself, sorry..

Oh, it’s no bother! http://whatisthiscutenonsense.tumblr.com/post/147379834506/eruhamster-retroautomaton-some-crying-tips 

But honestly, I’m not actually too happy with those anymore. They’re pretty old. I still sort of hold the same value when I draw them, but here’s some more updated tips, if that’s alright. 

One of the biggest complaints I got with those tips was that just a single tear is good enough. Well yes and no. Tears are just a helpful tool, and of course not everyone cries the same, so yes, a single tear can be just as impactful, as long as your emotion and context carries the message. 

On the opposite end of the spectrum, there’s heavy crying. And this can take many forms. Again, the face has to carry the intensity of the emotion; the tears are just there to emphasize it. More intensity, (for some people) does tend to include more liquids and leaking. 

And of course none of it has to be perfect or even. As I love to touch on, crying is messy and ugly. It brings out the most strained emotions. So none of it has to be symmetrical to get the point across- if anything, it gives it more movement. 

I of course draw in a more cartoony fashion, so if you did want to go on the more realistic end of the spectrum, you can focus on the actual physics of tears and how act and react on the face. More realistically, they come from the inner eye, and are much smaller. They tend to fall in wayward paths, slowly, but  sperraticly, and in droplets or thin streams. You can also add streak marks and flush up the face, depending on the subject. 

I’m glad you liked my old tips, and I hope these new ones help!

Friendship is not a competition. 

But in junior high and high school the top mean girl of my grade taught us all that it was. You were best friends one day and the next she decided you were lame and wouldn’t talk to you. If she was spending time or favoring someone it was always at the expense of someone else. I learned to be jealous of her time and be constantly worried that she would tire of me. That wasn’t friendship and I know that now but it still impacts how I view my relationships. 

Friendship is someone who thinks about you and cares about you life no matter what they get out of it. Friendship is long and detailed talks about obscure subjects that you both enjoy. Friendship is showing up when there is pain or a disaster or a celebration and just being there. Friendship is not seeing each other for five years but still being able to pick up right where you left off. 

Friendship is not a competition.  

im so bad at telling you this or im so off course

as if a nematode became human
i try to express myself to beautiful people
beautiful! so much
more beautiful than me,
much much more. honestly.

once i had a dream
i poured my heart out
i said can we, will we, will you?

when the scaffolding was well defined between us,
when the invitation i set out was heard but not honored,
not mirrored.

probably i make too much of things. wishes.
i am ridiculous. i know.
probably i am recyclable as an egg carton, or
even more so equally.
i wait for recognition and get none.
i pause and wait.
its because im cardboard. or bicarbonate of soda.
its because im lint.

i try to say
can we please
can we please just celebrate each other
and not drown in the world.
can we please!


i have to go to bed now.
i love you tho. you.
sleep soundly you. sleep.
i hope you are cozy.
i hope i am cozy too.

in a moment you and me,
we will be forgotten.
not even forgotten.
more than that.
we will be the absence of knowing.
there will be no one to know.
in a moment. we never existed.

i keep looking for someone who gets this,
someone who understands that
this is our moment of time, and that
together, we can create our own world
separate from this world of insanity.

im probably naive.
probably it is impossible.
so never mind.
i know im a nematode,
a puff of lint in a pocket,
a tangle of an eyelash of something real.
my beauty is nonexistent when i think of you.

You know what makes me sad? People don’t taking in notice Annabeth’s feeling for Percy, her feelings for his are as strong as his, but we don’t talk enough about it. It’s mostly how Percy loves Annabeth but there are a few times people talk about how much Annabeth loves Percy. And she does, she loves him so much, she is crazy about him. 

People usually focus on what will happen and how crazy Percy would go if Annabeth was the one missing, but guys, Annabeth counted every single minute she couldn’t find Percy. Percy is everything she wanted, he is her something permanent, she has know since the beginning and she knew about his feelings for him and she also knew he would probably die. 

Yes, she had a crush on Luke, but that crush was not even near to what she feels for Percy. He’s her family, he is her home. She started having a crush on him since the summer they met, that’s even longer since Percy started having a crush on her

Annabeth’s feelings for Percy as just as strong as Percy’s feelings for her and they shouldn’t be overlooked.

BUT CONSIDER, since Ez is the first of p much all living things, that she contains a small part of EVERYTHING inside her. Like she’s built from the atoms of every single creature that has ever lived. Her soul is her own, she has lived her own lives of course, but in addition her spirit as a whole has expanded with the pieces of all the others souls out there, the ones that have died, the ones that live in alternate dimensions akin to whichever she is currently inhabiting. So when someone looks at her, they feel as though they know her. Whether that is because she harbors a piece of them inside her (no matter how small) or because she harbors a piece of someone they have loved.  I’M IN WAY TOO DEEP PLS RESCUE ME. 

Ushiten Week ✧ Day 1 

First Time(s) ➡ first kiss  (✿◡‿◡)

I know, first kiss is like the number one most obvious choice, but I love picturing Tendou being really brave and determined, grabbing Ushi and giving him a really sloppy kiss because he’s so in love holy shit he can’t contain it anymore (but ushi is also fallin’ pretty hard so it’s ok)
