draw a half circle


I have a sketchbook-hoarding problem, i.e. I’ll get a sketchbook, fill 3 pages with lopsided circles and half-erased head drawings, then get discouraged by my fear of “ruining” a nice clean book with crappy scribbles and stash it away in my Drawer of Shame™.  Gotta fix that.  ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ

Want to take on this challenge yourself?  DEWIT.  Just tag me or your post with #ssirenia so that I can see your awesome art!  >:D

You smiled to yourself as you kitted up, the boys had left and you’d received a text from Sam begging for help. Slinging your duffle bag over your shoulder you headed out to where Sam had told you to go, finding them by simply following the noise of your brothers being tossed around inside the house they’d broken into.

“Really, do you guys not carry salt or something.” You chuckled after making half a circle and drawing the ghosts attention, trapping it but dodging out of the way at the last second and using the thin iron chain you kept on you to whip through it.

Late Nights [Jung Hoseok]

Warning: Contains smut. Do not read if you are underage.

A/N: I’m a shit and was meant to have written a Hoseok fic months ago for @just-let-me-be-your-lover . It’s my first one, please give me feedback on characterization and if you think I portrayed him right. Thank youuu. 

Life was Hoseok was good. It was hectic, you had to admit that, but overall, there was nothing you could complain about. Because his bright personality was such a ray of sunshine, even when things were wobbling off track, he made an effort to look after you. To fix it. To make sure everything was back ticking so smoothly it was as if there had never been an issue to start with.

And when he was unable to redirect the path of your misfortunes, he never let you dwell on it. Never let you feel the sadness of the mess up. Never let you hold onto things longer than you absolutely had to. He was the perfect compliment to the ball of nervous anxiety you’d been before you met him - before he’d stormed into your life with unrelenting optimism, settled himself in and never exiting. And for that, you loved him.

Except he had one bad habit. Arriving home late. But it was often that love that swelled through you as when you found him making his way next to you far too late for you to still be conscious, the digits of the alarm clock glowing the reality of the relationship you’d been fostering for the better part of three years. Because he worked. He worked often, he worked hard, and he worked late - the time you wanted to spend with him was more than not filled with meetings and overseas trips and executives and award shows and filming and dance practices and hours spent in the studio.

So when he did crawl into your bed during the early hours of the morning, the rustle of the blankets stirring you awake despite your sleepiness, you’d learned to find the joy in that too. The joy that was Hoseok. Your boyfriend.

Anon asks:
“Is it possible that you could do a Pink Floyd facial feature reference?? I have a lot of trouble getting the eyes down specifically most of the time haha. Thanks 💕”

Hi there! I hope this helps you out a bit

Roger: I emphasize his long nose and jaw when I draw him. But to make it more interesting I make his hair and cheeks more defined and soft in contrast to the sharpness of the rest of his face. Think of a mushroom when you draw him-
And for his eyes I do a “half circle” shape (with the round part facing up)

David: I really focus on his brows and lips, he sort of has the same eyebrows as Macca, and a brow bone like Neil Young. Also he has crazy full lips. Other than that he has a very round/oval face with flat straight hair. His eyes are narrow and slightly droopy.

Syd: has a very square/oval face and a short nose. I mainly focus on his eyes/eyebrows and hair. He has great big droopy doe eyes like Macca but very thick angular eyebrows. And his hair is p crazy. I draw it like a cloud with hook shapes.

Rick: I focus on his thick angular eyebrows and jaw/mouth. He has a lot of lines on the lower half of his face which I exaggerate. He also has narrow small lips which taper into a point towards the middle. He has very similar eyes to David, narrow and slightly droopy.

Nick: I focus on his jaw/mustache and eyebrows. He has a sharp brow bone, but soft eyebrows (does that make sense?) also he has a very round jaw and narrow forehead (he’s a bit triangle shaped) his nose is also short and pointy.

Okay there’s my visual and written aids for the Floyd 👌👌👌

I am back from vacation! And our studio got a few new machines, so naturally I needed to play with the new toys. The result: Tris doing what she loves most.

Only photo ref was a quick google search for a shaggy white dog to make sure I got the hair laying right. Mostly this was just for me to keep in practice since I’ve been terribly at keeping up frequent loose sketches this summer.

Blooming Joy

Happiness, ever elusive and much sought for. It so often seems out of reach, but is it? The happiness that we feel is the happiness that we create for ourselves. What stands in our way? What stray and intrusive thoughts keep us from experiencing our full measure of joy? This is a spell to help rid yourself of the thoughts that block you from your full joy.

You will need
1. An orange or yellow candle (in a safe candleholder)
2. Lilac essential oil or a fresh lilac flower (purple)
3. A pencil and paper
4. A heat resistant bowl


Begin by lighting the candle and placing it on your righthand side. Place the bowl on your lefthand side. Both should be within easy reach of you. In front of you, place the paper, pencil, and oil/flower. If inclined, cast a circle.

Next, gaze into the flame of the candle. Repeat five times with intention:

Flame of wonder, flame of light
Guide my mind and guide my sight

Allow your mind to clear, focusing on the flame and this question: what thoughts stand between me and my joy? If your mind wanders, which is natural and expected, acknowledge the thoughts and allow them to pass through you, present but not harming. When you have an insight into a thought that disrupts your happiness write it on the paper.

When you have three thoughts written down or when you feel there are no more thoughts to record, turn your attention to the paper. With the lilac oil or flower bloom, draw a half-circle on the paper with the top open and the bottom closed. Starting from the lowest point of the half circle draw a line going straight up and out of the half-circle. The half-circle represents you and your openness to joy. The line represents the banishment of your negative and intrusive thoughts, those things that block you from your joy. Next, touch the oil/blossom to your head and then to the spot your half-circle and line connect. You are binding your negative thoughts to the page in preparation for banishment.

Lift the page, holding it before you, and repeat with conviction:

Ill thought, ill thought
You’ve no power o’er me
Ill thought, ill thought
Banished from what I see

Holding the page in your left hand, touch the bottom right corner to the flame and carefully place the paper in the bowl. Allow it to burn to ash. If it goes out before fully burning, relight it. You are banishing the negativity and intrusive thoughts. Once you have burned the paper and you feel calm, extinguish the candle. Take the bowl of ash outside and toss it to the winds that the thoughts may be carried away.

You have freed yourself from this negativity. Though the thoughts may return, you now possess the power to dispel them. You are mistress and they cannot control you or block your joy.

Lilac: feminine, associated with Venus and the air, often used for banishment and protection.
Orange: the power of change, strength
Yellow: the power of intellect, mind over matter

6 for Madilton. (Wow i really really really like pain.)

6. “I’ve tried to move on, but no one is you.”
(Aroace Madison because why not)


It was quiet in the apartment, the lights all off save for a single lamp in the corner. Its golden glow hardly did a thing to dissolve the late-evening darkness of the room. James didn’t dare to turn on another light though. If there was one thing he’d learned from this, it was that Alex preferred to grieve in the dark.

Curled against James’s sides on the couch, Alex nodded mutely. He looked small in a too-big hoodie and sweatpants, socks resting on the cushion across James’s lap. His head was tucked into the crook of James’s shoulder, hair loose and soft against his skin. Normally, James wouldn’t let people so close to him. But Alex was different. Alex was practically family.

“What happened this time?” James asked quietly, hand drawing reassuring circles on Alex’s back.

Alex managed a half-shrug. “I dunno. Just didn’t…work.”

“I thought you liked Burr.”

“I did.”

“Did he do something?”


“Then why’d you break up with him?”

Again, Alex shrugged. “I dunno,” he repeated, softer.

James sighed, long and slow, and rested his cheek against Alex’s head. This happened every time Alex got into a relationship. It went well for about two weeks, maybe three. Then, abruptly, it ended. And then Alex was a wreck. It hurt James to think of Alex in pain, but he didn’t know why he kept doing this to himself.

Dimly, he became aware of something wet seeping into a place on his T-shirt. His heart ached to realize that Alex was silently crying. His shoulders shook and James hugged him closer. “God, Alex, why?” he asked. “Why can’t you let yourself be happy?”

“I don’t know. Maybe I don’t deserve it.” Alex’s voice came out hoarse, trembly. Then he swallowed and went on in a whisper. “Honestly, Maddie? I think it’s because I’m in love.”

James stilled in confusion. “What?”

“I know. I—God, I know.” Alex buried his face in James’s shoulder, took a shuddery breath. “I’ve tried to move on, but no one is you.” It came out soft, hardly a breath and muffled in his shirt. But James heard it.

James heard it and his heart plummeted down into some dark place in his chest, because he already knew.

He knew he’d break Alex’s heart.

He never means for things to happen around him, they kind of just do.

Still, he hadn’t wanted to do this.

Authors note: This video cannot encapsulate how hot the “Korean bow thigh thing” can be, but here’s a link in case you’re confused about the description. Note that this is not the same as a traditional bow - the one linked is fiberglass and the one in the fic is a traditional horn bow (which requires a lot more strength to string). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPG3z9I-rh4

hi! im gonna be straightforward I'm absolute shit at drawing general head shapes and jawlines, especially front view? most of mine look like someone chopped the edges off of a rectangle. do you have any tips regarding that? i love your blog btw🙌🙌🙌

Perhaps what is not working out for you is your method of constructing the head. How about taking some shapes and stacking them together?
For a front view you can start with a rectangle (your enemy). Divide it into thirds. In the top two thirds draw a circle, in the bottom half of the rectangle add a triangle. (This doesn’t have to be precise but just as a general idea). It’s Doritio Faced Senpai! Now, from the side of the circle that touches the side of the triangle, slowly draw a curved like that meets where the point of the triangle is.  now you have a general face shape. 

Next, add a vertical line to the face to divide it in half. Then, erase the rectangle, the leftover bits of the circle, and the bottom parts of the triangle. Now your face is set up for proportions! Add a line just above and below the middle blue line and a line half the distance from between the bottom red line and the bottom of the chin. Tada! Guidelines! (I forgot to mark the brow line on the lower image, but it is the top red line!). Put the pieces into place. This should help you with your general face shapes from the front view!

And thank you for liking and supporting this blog!

I’ve watched listened to WAY too much Grey’s Anatomy (all of it from the start, within a month and a half probably, or less). xD I meant to ACTUALLY include Anders in his nurse’s outfit but the way this went he didn’t want to be in the picture. xD LATER, then.


This is for my own entertainment cus I’m a nerd, but I made a New Luna Alphabet that I hope would significantly simplify the one from the show. Instead of having to memorize a 26-character sequence of 4 types of moons, you only have to remember a 5-character sequence of 5 types of moons, that is,

New Moon > Full Moon > Waxing Cresc. > Waning Cresc. > 1st Quarter,
or shorter, 

A very, very detailed explanation under the cut.

Simple metal charms….

Draw on design, i used a pencil to draw circles

cut out design, i made circles to cut in half to make matching earring pairs….

Once they are cut, they get lightly hammered and sanded

They then go in a patina bath  

After the patina bath, they get rinsed, dried and re sanded to give it a more rustic

After being sanded they get punched and used for various jewelry components <3

You can do this with various thin scrap metals and a pair of tin snips : )

jay drawing

‘I am very offended Jay.’ You gave him a warning tone when he showed you the drawing of what was supposed to be you. It was a stick figure with a few strands of long hair; a fucking stick figure and you drew him a portrait in ten fucking minutes. You knew he wasn’t that good in drawing but that was taking it a bit too far. He didn’t even put in any effort. ‘Okay fine.’ He said pouting at your angered tone.

He picked up the pencil once again and started drawing a half circle near where the line what was supposed to be your body meet with two more lines of your legs; he added your ass. 'Are you fucking kidding me?’ You asked him half amused half annoyed, you were close to laughing but the irritation of how impossibly annoying your boyfriend was, was making it hard.

'Well that’s a sexy piece of ass if you ask me.’ He commented on the picture he drew, trying to look at it from all angle. In your fits of anger, you laughed but you took the piece of paper and started pounding it against his head. You knew it didn’t hurt but you were so angry at him. He started laughing trying to make a grab of the paper and once he succeeded he pulled you on top of him, lying down on the bed you two were sitting on. 'See you’ve ruined my masterpiece.’ He signaled at the crumpled piece of paper, abandoned at the side.

'Thank god the muse is still sexy as fuck.’ He squeezed your butt as you groaned in annoyance at your boyfriend.

Drake and Okami were just wandering aimlessly, the younger sibling’s arms crossed. From the looks of things, Drake wasn’t exactly pleased that his sister had gotten them hopelessly lost. After a short while, he eventually spoke up to the older sibling.

“How much longer do you think you’ll be taking us in circles,” he snapped, gazing at her.

“I am not taking us in circles,” Okami responded sharply, drawing a sigh from the half demon.

“Our scent is still here from the first 5 times you took us through here. Can’t you just admit that we’re lost?!”

The two siblings were so caught up in their argument that they didn’t even notice as sometime approached. They didn’t even hear the footsteps and Drake hadn’t even bothered to check for any new scents.


How To Draw Chibi Takano Masamune.

Step 1: draw a perfect circle if you can. Highly recommend a circle object or just sketch a circle like me.

Step 2: add some facial features. The eye is a bit incorrect here but just draw a simple half oval. The nose is a simple round triangular shape.

Step 3: I usually don’t draw the mouth till later steps because I feel the expression should be one of the last things, but I did so anyway. In later steps I fixed the mouth because Takano’s mouth seemed to be lower and more angled. Draw the ear and darken about half of the circle as shown. The eye is also incorrect and fixed later.

Step 4: fix the eye to a more half oval shape with a line in the top of it. Takano always has a serious demeanor so show it off. Now for the bangs. Similar to Ritsu’s, Takano has bangs in a choppy long kind of way. Hair also covers his eyes. Some hair goes deeper into the room than some that meets at the lines.

Step 5: draw a half circle a bit away from the original circle as if it were almost blanketing over it. The arrows show you exactly what I am talking about. Just make it as round as possible and draw light!

Step 6: I left the lines to show you exactly where to start. The back of the head shows the hair depart from the smooth roundness of the top to a more choppy end. Draw according to how it is drawn above.

Step 7: now the top is round but going to the right it begins to get more and more chopped but more smoothed than the rest as it goes into the bangs.

Step 8: add a eyebrow. However you want to do the eyebrow, I did a more angry demeanor for Takano in the tutorial. He is grumpy cause Ritsu is running away from him or something. Also add a bit more hair at the inside for detail. (I fixed the mouth in this step, notice it is lower and more frowned)

Step 9: make this part of the hair darker. Don’t press down your pencil so much it bleeds but make it dark as needed. I advise going along the bangs in a zigzag format.

Step 10: shade the top of the head a lighter gray and blend it into the rest of it. After so, erase some of the shade and blend it with your finger to show a light to Takano’s hair.

Finished! Good Job, I am so proud of you! ^u^

Thank you for your time and I do take requests for any Takano/Ritsu (Sekaiichi Hatsukoi/Junjou Romantica) related drawing. Don’t be shy to ask.

you didn’t specify this but i decided to write a scene from my current (as yet untitled) modern!au WIP which is turning into a beast of a fic and I’m so excited, as it is my outline is almost ¼ satisfied and I’m at 56k.

send me a word and a character/series/pairing and I’ll write you a drabble

“Octavia,” Raven leans over and whispers in her ear. “You realize your hand is on my thigh.” At the same moment Octavia nods she feels Clarke’s hand come to rest on the small of her back and the small patch of skin that’s exposed just above her jeans. “Oh,” she tries to not look surprised because even though the entire exchange that night could have been read as flirtatious or simply friendly, Octavia and Clarke are in a relationship with Lexa, and this is most definitely flirting.

Each of them discretely has a hand on her.
