a fun color+shaded kevamie commission for @sever77 ! thank you for your patience!
their request was basically kevin and jamie are youtubers and are doing the “boyfriend tag” challenge, specifically with the hairstyles i gave them in one of my kevamie posts (where they colored each other’s hair); in the scenario, jamie got the answer wrong to one of kevin’s questions and they’re laughing ‘bout it… :^) nerds :^)
Had some of my friends on Twitter send me hairstyle references for practice and here are the finished drawings! Tried to use a variety of media (brush pen and pencil, copics and watercolor with micron pen, copics and micron)
Confession: The most aggravating thing happened yesterday. The topic of cultural appropriation came up and this girl flat out said that she believed black people were “victimizing themselves” by getting upset at things like lips (kylie jenner challenge) and hairstyles (aka braids, dreadlocks, etc on non-black people). I set her fucking straight with that shit and by the end of it she was like “Oh well I didn’t know it wasn’t acceptable when it’s on black people… I didn’t know about those stats and facts… I didn’t know about _____, etc” but I was so disgusted when the majority of people AGREED with her initial sentiment before I fucking schooled them all. Now I’m just… ugh. Victimizing ourselves? Is that really what everyone else sees it as? Someone once told me it’s not my job to educate anyone, but, I just CAN’T sit there while this uneducated, ignorant and dehumanizing shit is being spewed in front of me. On the bright side it seemed towards the end that it got through to them. I’m just amazed at the privilege non-black people have of being willfully ignorant about these things.
Richard Armitage 31 Day Challenge - Day 24: Your favourite hairstyle
Well, I like it short. The hair, I mean. It doesn’t matter if he’s got a beard, a stubble or if he’s clean shaven; I like my men with short hair. I’d love to pass my fingers through it, and in some cases on it, at the nape of the neck….
