Im always so curious how artists make the skin look so alive (i guess) on the drawings and how to achieve that look?? I truly fancy that look and ughhh i just love great art in general.. :(( but yeah i just? Kind of want to know the secret to it lmao
i don’t think there’s like.. a secret to it hhah but uhm well.. for me the most important thing to make the skin look “alive” is 1. a diverse colour palette (yellows, reds, blues etc) and 2. thats just a personal preference.. but i never perfectly blend the brush streaks on the skin parts.. you get what i mean? i make it look a little rougher because if it’s perfectly blended it looks too “doll like” here’s some example close ups vv
this is my first time posting my art to tumblr hOO BOI!! its super messy and unpolished and tbh isnt that nice looking but its the first time ive finished a piece of art and have been actually kind of proud of it for about.. 2 years? so i guess thats something haha
For Ruki-kun, what are the differences between love and passion?
Passion is wanting to be together, to embrace each other, that sense of your desires overcoming you--those sort of things. For me, 'love' is when you live for the sake of the other person. Wanting to protect that person, save that person—a feeling that's kind of like family, I guess. A brief “I love you” kind of feeling is closer to passion. Seeing a future together, that's a feeling closer to love. For example, seeing moments when I become an old man and my partner becomes an old woman, and we're tidying up together. Even if there are some lies, it's a relationship without shame or embarrassment. I think, more so than receiving, love is about providing for and giving.
my new fav question to ask people is what wtnv lesson hit u hardest like what thing was said where u had to like sit down and reconsider ur whole life because despite it being vague and also being centred in night vale, a place which is intentionally unreal, it also feels direct and very, very personal
Wishing my absolutely adored @sugarplum-senpai the happiest of birthdays - again ;D I happen to actually be RIIIIGHT on time in my timezone, somehow. Thank you for being so loving, kind and inspiring everyday. This is for you~
The sun shone brightly above them, its
light glistening across the dark waters crashing against the shores down below,
and the air had absolutely no business being this cold.
The wind had been less aggressive
back at the settlement. Seeing the clear skies so early in the morning, he’d
thought – naively, in hindsight – that the temperatures would climb as they’d
ride to the northern coast. Waiting under the sun should have been… Possibly
not comfortable, but certainly not
Most petty thing I've ever done was listen to these group of asswipes in highschool talk shit about me in Spanish (I obviously didn't look Mexican to them) called me a dumbass and shit. Fast forward to later that week when 1 of the girls in that group tried to cheat by looking at my answers. So I purposely answered them wrong then went back and corrected them. I guess she gave her friends my answers since they all got 20s and I got a 98. Why would they copy off of a dumbass
That's just my guess but it seems like you want to write bottom!Viktor just because people keep asking you about this ridiculous top/bottom thing. That's kinda sad that they just can't drop this theme. Good luck with your exams!
I want to write bottom Viktor because I see them as the kind of couple that would definitely switch and it’s an interesting thing to explore different types of intimate scenes in different scenarios as a writer. Plus I like bottom Viktor just as much as bottom Yuuri. The only reason there is not bottom Viktor in the main fic is because it’s a plot point that’s relevance will become more clear as obs&bh progresses
I have a lot of feelings about scanman. It seems like he never wanted to save the world, nor die for it. But then there's how absolutely willing he is to defend whitestone when he gets to jokingly act like the hero. It seems like he would die, not for the world which took his mother and gave him a daughter, but for Percy, and the rest of vm. But they seem very into the idea of being the saviors of Exandria. Scanlan just wanted his friends, His family, To put him first, cause nobody else ever did
Oh, absolutely! Scanlan plainly insists he’s sort of along for the ride that Vox Machina is taking him on because it’s better than whatever he was doing before hand (he’d left Dranzel’s troupe at some point before hand which leaves some time where Scanlan was probably just tavern and brothel hoping through various cities). I don’t think Scanlan ever intended to be a hero. It was kind of just the thing to do? And, well, if his friends are going to go risk their necks then they need someone alongside them to make sure they don’t die and it seems like he’s the one for the job.
I think he likes to play up the hero card but I don’t think theres any true heroism in his body. He’s sort of just a go with the flow kind of guy. The sort of character that wanders around aimlessly and without purpose until he falls into situations and then it becomes his purpose to figure the best way to get out of that predicament.
He never really cared about dying before either? Well, I shouldn’t say that. Scanlan joked so much about the rest of VM dying while he lived to tell the tale, that I think he actually started to believe he was untouchable for a while there.
However, when the Conclave attacked and VM lost pretty much everything. And it’s really important to note that the Conclave’s attack on Emon happened only two episodes after his meeting Kaylie. So, I really do think the ‘situational heroism’ starts here because he feels a) he’s gotta protect these goons he calls friend, but also b) he knows he has a daughter out there in the world now and he can’t just let it all go to shit.
And anytime someone brings up what Scanlan’s motivations are, I always point them to this conversation that he had with Jarett, while he’s intending to enlist his help in buying suude.
Scanlan: “The problem here Jarett is that I’m distracted. I’m distracted by things that haven’t ever distracted me before. I’ve made a promise to someone to stay alive. I’ve never valued my own life before and when we get into the shit I’m second guessing things. I’m making stupid decisions that I wouldn’t have otherwise made.” Jarett: “Because suddenly you have purpose?” Scanlan: “Exactly.” Jarett: “You have a reason to come back.” Scanlan: “Yes.” Jarett: “Thats not a bad thing, though.” Scanlan: “I just don’t know how to harness that kind of stress.”
My thoughts about the new boruto episode (without spoilers)
Welp I already decided that I like Metal (his name is stupid though :’D). I also like Shikadai but thats mostly because he recembels Shikamaru a lot (I hope we will see him mature) and I freaking adore Inochi
BUT Shino are you serious? You let this kids work on the stonehead of the Hokage? Whos Idea was that? Its not like you need to know a ton of things before actually doing this crap. (Also what kind of pranks did you pull Shino?I really wanna know.)
Temari for the win! She still is scary :D
… okay This thing with getting possessed. I’m really interested how they will explain it later …. also Shikadai …
he comes up with the best strategies! That made me laugh :D
I take back what I said about liking Shikadai because of his father XD … and I also have to say: Metal you are freaking adorable! Maybe its because both of you got the eyes from your mothers.
I would have loved to see Lee and Tenten though :(
