but it's quite passionate

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 they 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!

You got the healing that I want
Just like they say it in the song
Until the dawn, let’s Marvin Gaye and get it on” (x)

-might be a spoiler for those who didnt get one of jumins bad ends!!- RFA + v reacting to finding out mc died from jumping out of jumins window to escape in his bad end? You don't have to if the content is too personal or uncomfortable for you!! Just wanted to see how someone would interpret the aftershock

boi, i can go on a long rant about jumin and tell y’all why i think his route is absolutely underwhelming, does him no justice to his character, and how it was extremely uncomfortable in so many ways. the ending you’re talking about is one of the most underrated endings in the mystic messenger fandom, which is very disappointing and i think slightly disturbing

like MC literally fell to her death because in that route, you have to repeatedly reject jumin’s advances and say you want out. and the game kinda PUNISHES you if you have that attitude. this bad ending occurred just because you the player repeatedly says no and some of MC’s dialogue options even has her begging to get out of jumin’s house. and i think that shit is messed up

BUT ANYWAY aside from my mini rant up there, you asked a very good question! when i got jumin’s bad ending where MC fell to her death i was s h o o k and could only wonder how the rest of the RFA and V would react…let’s explore that, shall we?

  • jumin and v stared at the open window. the curtains flutter gently. from the window, they can see the peaceful starry night sky
  • the screams, shouts, and car horns contrast wildly against this peace a few seconds later, after your body hits the ground
  • v calls the police immediately. jumin is unresponsive. all he was doing was staring out of that open window. you were there - you were there one moment ago. where did you go? he doesn’t even fight back when police arrived at the crime scene. all he could do was stare at the window and wondered when you’d come back
  • the days that followed were a blur of chaos, disbelief, anger, and grief for the rfa
  • they lost two friends that day.
  • jumin han who was being investigated by law enforcement, and MC whose body is lying in the morgue
  • v tried his best explaining what happened to the rfa, but of course, the man tries keeping some secrets and details to himself to spare the group of any pain. but no, yoosung, jaehee, zen, and seven aren’t having any of that bullshit anymore. they all fall to despair
  • all they knew was that MC was kept in jumin’s place for a few days, against her will. they remember how much you desperately reached out to them, pleading to get out and go back home.
  • in one way or another, each of the members blamed themselves
  • jaehee should’ve tried harder. she went over there herself, to confront jumin. that wasn’t enough. it’s never enough
  • she remembers your voice over the phone, you were whispering because you didn’t want jumin to hear you. you were on the verge of tears. you were so so scared, but trying to keep it together, for jaehee.
  • she should’ve fought more. she should’ve stayed longer. she could’ve done something.
  • if yoosung was already apathetic with his schoolwork before, his performance hits an all time low after he hears news of your death. 
  • he locks himself in his apartment, reading the text messages you and he exchanged before your death. most of your last words contained nothing but fear. 
  • why didn’t he see it? why didn’t he see your pain?
  • zen is vengeful. the moment he hears the news, he jumps on his bike and drives over to jumin’s place. jumin was being escorted out by police.
  • nobody could hold back zen, and he already tackled jumin to the ground. he only managed to land two blows before security wrestles him off jumin. only two hits, and such forceful blows gave jumin a broken nose and black eye
  • he screams and rages, as some officers drag him away. 
  • “i thought at the very least, you would’ve kept her safe. but she’s gone! she’s gone because of you!” jumin doesn’t even respond to zen’s accusations. blood drips down his emotionless face. he didn’t even react to the pain. and that only pissed zen off more. 
  • SAY SOMETHING!”
  • zen and jumin are escorted to their respective police cars
  • even though v left out vital details of MC’s death, seven finds out by himself either way. he neglects his secret agent work. he doesn’t answer anybody’s frantic texts or calls. he locks himself in the bunker.
  • all he did was replay and the recording of your death
  • your expression moments before your death would forever haunt seven.
  • he couldn’t read it. he couldn’t figure out. what were you feeling, before you passed?

Voltron Zine Idea

i kinda wanna start a klance zine for like up and coming artists and writers?? i think its important for creators who are passionate and talented but arent quite there yet to get some recognition and hopefully that encouragement will help them improve.

while yes accepting only the best artists and writers gives the optimum quality for a zine, i feel like the ones who keep applying and want to collaborate with other people but never get accepted or get that opportunity should have a chance to show off their work. and this would be the place to do that

lmk if youd be interested or like the idea

Hi, Miya! First, I wanted to thank you for your book recommendations! I started reading Mathesis few day ago and it's really interesting. I can't stop LOL In my short breaks I read about fixed stars (perhaps too early for me but I can't help my curiosity) and I have a question. If someone has a badly placed Mars in Libra BUT 2 benefic stars (spica and arcturus) both conjunct that Mars in less than 1 degree (essentially Mars is right between the two) does it make that Mars less malefic?

Hey, anon! You’re very welcome, I’m glad to hear you’re studying like that, reading this made me smile. :) And I know what you mean, curiosity is hard to deal when trying to follow a healthy order on what to study (I learned about how to read one’s death before understanding one’s career so I can’t blame you at all lol). I’ll try to be brief but basically although Spica is the biggest benefic star it also talks about exaggeration (much like Jupiter, although they’re not of the same nature). So when combined with Libra (the sign that talks about kidneys) can actually make one an alcoholic or a drug addict since Mars is malefic and the star is bringing exaggeration. Makes sense? Spica will be benefic no doubt, can bring luck anyway, but will have a bad side since it’s conjunct a malefic. Mars comes from the legend o Ares, like you probably already know by now, it talks about leadership - so Spica will bring luck regarding that, making one popular somehow or even have good leadership skills. But when combined with the sign it’s in can also be a bad thing, like someone that tries too much to help others by trying to put order in things in a diplomatic way and denying their own happiness because of it. Will bring good things but not all of them will be good enough to eliminate the evil Mars will cause.

Basically, it will be a mix. Mars will continue to be malefic and a little shit but the benefic stars will bring something good out of it. What’s gonna be stronger, though, will probably depend on the house it’s in and Venus (since it’s Libra’s ruler). But from my experience, from the charts I’ve read, normally Mars is going to be evil just the same with just a good, few positive points (but again, will depend on the houses and the rest of the chart). I guess the strongest point would be Spica’s popularity and Arcturus’ luck with friends of higher status’. I hope this helped you. :)

Horoscope for July 20th, 2016
  • Aries: The love and romance department should be going pretty well for you now. This is the time to probe more deeply into your current affair with that person who catches your eye. There's a greater sensitivity to your emotions today, and you could find yourself holding back a bit more than usual. An air of mystery and intrigue will surround you, drawing others toward you like a moth to a candle.
  • Taurus: Your incredible passion and creativity are taking center stage. It's also quite possible that there's a great restlessness within you egging you on to take things to the next level. Combine your powers of dedication with your flair for the dramatic to accomplish whatever it is your heart desires. You have the power within you to shine especially bright on a day like today.
  • Gemini: You may be feeling a bit reserved today, especially when it comes to issues involving love and romance. Follow your instincts and know that your hesitation isn't unfounded. Sometimes it's good to slow down and question the road you're on. Just don't doubt yourself to the point that you become too frustrated that you can't take the next big step forward.
  • Cancer: Reclaim control of things that might be holding you back now. You may find that there's an element of restriction to the day that's keeping you from getting where you want to be. Try the best you can to relax and stabilize your emotions. Interaction with people who are older and wiser is likely to shed some important perspective on things today. Heed advice from those who have been through similar situations.
  • Leo: Be selective when it comes to expressing your passion today. Remember that less is more. You don't have to use a tremendous number of bells and whistles in order to get your point across. Let your actions be minimal but meaningful. You can say a great deal with few words. There's more to your glance than meets the eye. The unwary prey has no chance against your hypnotic stare.
  • Virgo: In general, your spirit is upbeat, freedom loving, and adventurous. Today, however, you might find that it's a bit more intense and possibly somber, especially when it comes to romantic issues. This approach to matters of the heart isn't exactly your normal style, but you're apt to find that it's appropriate for your situation now. Make sure you have the right tools for the job at hand.
  • Libra: It's important for you not to overanalyze every little detail of your situation now, especially when it comes to love and romance issues. You could be jumping to ridiculous conclusions based purely on circumstantial evidence. Don't lose sleep over things that you don't even know to be true. Release your stranglehold on certain issues and concentrate on simply rebuilding your own self-confidence.
  • Scorpio: When it comes to love and romance, you may find yourself in a bit of a pickle. There's a request for greater commitment now. You may be unsure about how to respond. You may hesitate to give up the sense of freedom that you hold so dear. Recognize the importance of a close connection with one other person. Give yourself the opportunity to experience this kind of intense relationship on a more permanent basis.
  • Sagittarius: Your romantic, sensitive nature comes alive today, and you may find yourself searching for the security of a close lover. You're apt to be pickier than usual - not just anyone will do anymore. There is a longing within you for the company of someone who shares your deep intuitive understanding of people, emotions, and life in general. Don't settle for anything less.
  • Capricorn: Tension in your romantic life is apt to well up today. More than likely, there are certain responsibilities that you feel you have to attend to that take you away from your intimate experience with another. Whether or not you're currently involved in a romantic partnership, the day's energy is likely to stir up issues regarding love and romance. Try to find a healthy balance between work and play.
  • Aquarius: You could be feeling the pressure of time now. At this point in your life you may be more aware than ever of your limited time left on this planet. Perhaps you're thinking more about love and romance and how much they mean to you. Consider the limitations of each, but don't dwell on them. The important thing is to embrace today and make the most of the time and love you have now.
  • Pisces: Situations regarding love and romance are likely to get much heavier and more intense now. Are you ready to make a deeper commitment to the one you love? It may be quite hard for you to make a solid commitment because you could be wary of the freedom you'll lose. Now is the time to face the music and really dedicate yourself to the people who mean the most to you.
I just have a lot of feelings...

Ok. So I read this post  recently by eldrickthegreat and there were so many good points made in this…but I actually ummm-ed and ahhh-ed over if I should re-blog it or not though….. And I hesitated because I thought it would offend people….But its a subject I am quite passionate about and was not able to ignore it..I kept coming back to it but by the time I had added my info it had got away from the original point too much, so I thought I would make a new post.. and refer to my favourite bit to start…. 

“ Too many people are stuck in an outdated paradigm in which animals are nothing more than automated robots. Where as long as their physical needs are looked after, they will be happy…… People forget along the way that mind and body are inextricably linked. That the head must be happy for the body to be happy and the head is only happy when the body is doing all the things it evolved to do in its day to day life. Animals evolved in complex environments and sense all of that complexity in a multitude of ways. When your sensory apparatus is hardwired to be sensing stimuli all day long and you live in a bare box with a slate and a stick, to be so deprived of sensory input must be torturous….. it must be like having a constant itch you can’t scratch.”

I really think this encapsulates the main issues I have with the trends I am seeing in herptoculture. The main one being keeping animals in basic, sterile or “lab animal” style conditions with 1 or 2 hides or even just a water bowl at worst… usually kept on kitchen towel or newspaper and often in tubs/ racks or tanks which are too small for them- in some cases with virtually no height at all… (most bp racks I’ve seen I doubt they can even raise their heads much let alone periscope..?) 

So this is not just a “beardies on tile/lino”  issue.. this very much extends to reptile keeping in general and the tendency to equate surviving with thriving.. and to assume because an animal is eating, shedding, pooping and breeding that all is well, and all their needs are fulfilled, and that’s all there is to their lives.

This notebook thing…. Let me assure you that no mother would ever promote or draw attention to something like that. It just wouldn’t happen. No mother would want to encourage others to act in a similar manner to gain their favor with such behavior.
