exercise with a friend

i know you said you were saving taz requests for a later time, so im sorry if this just adds more to your pile! but youre just in general one of my fav artists, esp re: TAZ, and i dont know if you keep up with fandom things, but lately there was a blog hating on taakos just because they were chubby or fat or overweight and it really hurt as someone who sees themself in chub taakos. i guess the point of this is, have you ever considered drawing a chubby taako? itd make my whole month, i think!

Hello friend. I’m sorry that this sort of hullabaloo is happening in the fandom. I hope I can make your whole month ( and then some ) by offering you a cute, soft Taako.

My progress at the moment! If you want to stay fit by gaining or loosing weight..do it now! Now would be the best because if you wait and wait days and weeks,youll feel like you dont want to do it anymore. Ever since i started doing exercises on areas that i wanted to work on,i felt great day after day and my stress level became lower because i never gave up! START NOW BECAUSE IF YOU WAIT…YOULL NEVER START! ( ig: rosegold_ny)

hi! I love your art! I was wondering if you could make a tutorial on how to add variety to drawing characters. all my characters look like carbon copies of each other with different hairstyles. thanks!

I wish I could make an extensive tutorial about this but tbh I’m not an expert on the subject. I’ll try to give you some written tips though!

I think the main reason why lots of people have problems with variety is the fear (sometimes subconscious) of making your character look ‘ugly’.

First of all, something I’d recommend doing this, but instead of trying to achieve the ‘perfect face’, try doing a bunch of different ones and keep them! Also, here’s some actual tutorials to help you out (x) (x)

One very good exercise is drawing your friends, trying to capture their main features. Maybe their face is very long? They have big lips? Small eyes? This is amazing for lots of reasons because:

-you’ll practice a lot
-you don’t need to bother with lineart
-by staring at their photos for so long, you’ll see how different real humans look and you can use such features for your characters
-you can show it to them if you’re satisfied!!

I’d also recommend to look at how your favourite artists draw faces and specific features, you can definetely take some of them and merge them in your style!

This wasn’t much of a tutorial but I hope it was helpful nonetheless! Thank you for the compliments and have a good day!

The important thing for me was to turn the focus back on myself. I think I was really hesitant to not pour all of my energy into the personal side of my life. Now I’m recognizing that it doesn’t have to be one or the other. I think immediately after [my divorce], it was important for me to focus on myself and do what made me happy. Exercise. Be around friends. Just continue living life like I had been and recognizing that you’re not an anomaly. There are lots and lots of people who are in the same situation. And things get easier as time goes on.

important march stuff:

james and i moved to our new apartment! we just officially left our loft yesterday so its definitely still weird but i really love the new place and the complex makes me so happy. more on that later.

the youtube channel is still happening, we just need to finish getting settled in the apartment a little more!

ive lost 10 lbs in march so far! it feels good to see the numbers dropping and honestly i think i would have REALLY struggled with our move if i hadnt started eating healthy when i did. now that we’re in our new place ill be starting back at the gym, going for daily walks and playing basketball more often again, so im excited.

TODAY IS LAURA’S BIRTHDAY. we’re going to see beauty and the beast tonight! definitely looking forward to that. happy birthday, my partner in all things ridiculous! ❤

Papyrus

Papyrus is the skeleton who is tall and active. Within a red tunic and a pair of white pantaloons, he also tied the sleeves and trouser legs in linen, which looked like a martial artist. It is quite true. He always wears in a red headband with writing “The Hero” (义者) which is made by himself.

Papyrus is not quiet but obtrusive in the group, so this lets people feel him in the ways of confidence and innocence. He didn’t have any close friends ever, because he likes to talk about his dreams with others in unfiltered ways, which let others felt unrealistic. However, in the Peach Blossom Village, he is the welcome one by his enthusiasms. He is really helpful and honest to strangers as well as a hero he wants to be. Papyrus likes to do some run errands works that most of guys are annoying to do, and this is one part of his exercise for him to be a hero. If you truly become a friend with him, he will help you to escape from the chasing battle.

Papyrus likes to advocate justice, and a part of adamancy in his mind will help him to recognise humans are evil. In contrast, his methods in treating the evil enemies are adorable. He wants to be friends with humans who fell in Arcadia. On the other hands, he doesn’t want to break the law of his justice. In this way, he chose to design some puzzles on your ways to the Peach Blossom Village but always failed. Facing your flirts, he would be surprised and then angrily say that was the trick of humans.

Papyrus is strict to his brother. Right now, he is trying to organize a series of manual exercises for him, but Sans always likes to escape by his “Space Transportation”. The reason of his restriction to Sans is that Papyrus always thought Sans cannot protect himself well. Sans is always an idiot that needs to be guarded well.

Papyrus is sometimes careless and absent-minded. For example, he prepared some pickles for you on the way, but he forgot to leave a pair of chopsticks for you. Sometimes, he is really clever, which just like what leaves you some wrong messages to Undyne in the ways of your chasing battle.

(It is a plate of well-done pickles, but there are no chopsticks for you to use. You gave up for that.)



Miscellaneous Setting

He likes to call himself as a hero, and he always helps people in the village. However, the Peach Blossom Village is quiet and peaceful, and there are not some naughty guys to make trouble here. In this way, Papyrus is looking forward a magnificent world for him to fight, and he wants to hear someone call his name in some corners of this world for help.

Facing the kindness of you, Papyrus kept telling himself that this was the cheat of humans. You would find he was murmuring to himself.

He has a soft heart, and it is hard for him to kill someone even his enemies are sinful. He cares you a lot, even he never knows you are kind or not. He prepares pickles for you as your hunger meal and some puzzles as after-meal snack.

He really wants to leave Arcadia and travels around the world.

He likes to call himself as “the Great Papyrus” or “the Just Papyrus”, although he knows that he is not great at all.

He learnt to make pickles from Undyne.

He hates poems, and he hates Sans recite poems to him.

He once gave a scarf to a scarecrow.

He is a vegetarian.

 He is a part of power to maintain “the Barrier”.

If you killed him advance, you would not meet Sans in the Waterfall.

 

The Dialogue of Papyrus before the battle with you


HUMAN,
ALLOW ME TO TELL YOU SOME MIXED TASTES,
TASTES LIKE,


THE MOTION OF YOU MADE A JAR OF PICKLES BUT KNOCKING OVER THE SPICES
THE ADMIRATION FOR ANOTHER’S PUZZLE-SOLVING SKILLS
THE JOY OF FINDING ANOTHER PICKLES LOVER OF ME
THE DESIRE TO HAVE A COOL, SMART PERSON THINK YOU ARE COOL


THESE FEELINGS,
THEY MUST BE WHAT YOU ARE FEELING RIGHT NOW
I CAN HARDLY IMAGINE WHAT IT MUST BE LIKE TO FEEL THAT WAY
AFTER ALL, I AM VERY GREAT


I DON’T EVER WONDER WHAT HAVING LOTS OF FRIENDS IS LIKE
I PITE YOU, LONELY HUMAN…
WORRY NOT!!! YOU SHALL BE LONGLY SO LONGER!
I… THE JUST PAPYRUS WILL BE YOUR…


…NO, THIS IS ALL VICIOUS
I CAN’T BE YOUR FRIEND!!!
YOU ARE A HUMAN, THE ENEMY OF JUSTICE!
I MUST CAPTURE YOU!!! TO PROVE FOR MY MASTER


THEN, MASTER CAN TEACH ME ABOUT WUSHU!!!
POWERFUL! POPULAR! PRESTIGIOUS!
THAT’S THE PAPYRUS!!!
THE NEWEST MEMBER OF THE CELEBRITIES IN ARCADIA!

(These words must be in the font of PAPYRUS.)

Hey there! Love your art! Your OCs are so well-drawn. Just asking some advice. Any tips in head shapes and body shapes?

Thanks, friend! And sure!

So for a good exercise, I would draw random shapes and fill them in with faces. I find that this is a great practice! Just fun, throwaway faces and hey maybe you’ll see one you really like! But it’s good to get comfortable just doing all kinds of faces and break away from any usual face you may go to automatically.

Also, I took some of my doodles and made some notes on why I chose specific head shapes. It usually reflects their personality. For example:

As for bodies! I made this little chart also using some old doodles:

Using basic shapes as a guide if def a golden rule. These are just some of my male characters for example, but you can use the same exact shapes for women. In fact, I highly recommend it. It’s easy to get stuck in one specific shape so make sure to branch out!

Also, as I stated in the little diagram, a key in character designing is unique silhouettes. You and your audience should be able to tell each one apart easily.

Hope this helps!

Hi friends! Here are some back exercises for you to try out!💕
•Straight Arm Rope Pulldowns: Lean forward at your hips and pull down using your lats while keeping your arms straight. Squeeze your back at the bottom of the movement 😁
•Inverted Rows: My ladies and gents who are doing #FITwithamandawg know all about these 😁 If they are too challenging for you with the bar this low, start off by increasing the angle between your body and the floor (set the smith machine bar to a higher setting) or you can also bend your knees until you gain the strength to perform them with your legs straight.
•Rope Pulldowns: You can use a v bar attachment for these as well, but using a rope will allow for a greater range of motion💪🏼
•Incline Dumbbell Rows: This is one of my favorite back exercises 😇 focus on pulling back through your elbows and squeezing at the top of the movement!
•Underhand Barbell Rows: I did a compound set and performed sets of underhand & overhand rows back to back.

How do you deal with negative people when the main detractor is your wife? I workout 5/6 days a week, walk/run 4 early mornings before work, work a physical job and run around with my 3 young boys! My overweight wife is always telling me I'm gonna burn out and I'm gonna be dead by 40! Any tips to get her to lift(dead against it) and how to get her off my back?

Try to understand what she likes to do. She probably doesn’t like lifting, but she might be into a sport. Then you can motivate her by exercising with her.

Dealing with negative people is very common. Parents, friends, relatives will tell you “It’s not healthy”, “you will burnout” – get used to it. She doesn’t understand your lifestyle and it’s fine. You can’t blame her for it.

If you found the right work/life balance, do what you have to do in silence. If she’s closed minded about fitness, don’t try to convince her. Find what sport she likes, exercise with her and I’m sure she will have a better understanding why you’re doing all this.

Hope this helps!

The Girl With The Lion’s Mane

If one were to watch this scene from afar they would see a young woman sat beside a one giant, and opposite another. The sandy haired man whom sat across from the lady in question usually made his excuses to avoid trips to the library with his younger brother. His reasoning would always remain unchanged; starting with that there were never any women interested in him before turning towards the excuse of needing some alone time. This particular woman stood out from those who were overdosing on coffee doing assignments last minute, she was bent over the desk with her head nestled into the crook of her elbow. A black and yellow stripped pencil was balanced lightly between her thumb and index finger, the slender digits could be seen gliding through the air as her wrist flicked to create the delicate movements needed to form the intricate lines of her work. The youngest of the brothers had taken a liking towards the stranger; initiating conversation about the great masters – with Van Gogh serving as their current focus. Initially she had halted her work to hold the discussion but she quickly dipped her head again.

She had the most beautiful hair, brunette strands curling into large ringlets, the mane stopped at the base of her jaw. A teal sweater was accompanied by a small, silver, necklace which formed the shape of a turtle with an opal on its back. The sleeves stopped at the base of her thumb, particles of pencil discolouring the cuffs, shavings from her rubber caught within the material.  Her entire aura was one of a soft nature, the kind of quiet enthusiasm reserved for fairy-tale princesses.  Yet here she sat, an angel amongst men of great sin. The eldest of the brothers found her fascinating to watch whilst the youngest was drawn in by her words. It was when she reached out to the younger of the two, the tips of her fingers halting just before they reached the man’s burly shoulders, that both men became entranced.

There was something about her small stature against the 6 foot 3 giant beside her; and the way that she was just as large in presence as he was in height. The look of pure joy mirrored that of a cub as her eyes shone in anticipation. Muttering the man’s name as she reached her grand reveal; the image that she had placed before him was undeniably exquisite. She had captured the essence of her subject too unbelievable extents. The jaws of both men were stroking their laps causing the woman to giggle in response with her hand flying to her mouth. It was then that they realised; this was one woman they were never going to forget.

GOT7 Reaction To Their Best Friend Being An Exercise Addict

Jackson: This guy is all about being fit and healthy, so he’d be all for it. He’d be excited to know that he has someone to work out with him all the time. Best friend gym selfies! Making sure both of you are sticking to your healthy food regime and workout regime. Weekly competitions to see who can do the most push-ups. (someone come get this boy)

Originally posted by defwang

Jaebum: Don’t even ask him. He’s all about staying healthy and making sure you’re taking care of your health, but the gym is a no. He would probably come sometimes but you constantly asking him is annoying. He doesn’t understand why he has to go and why you couldn’t just go by yourself. When he does go, he’s going to be complaining. He might be a little jealous to see you lifting a lot more than him.

Originally posted by soybeantree

Youngjae: He wouldn’t be opposed to it nor would he love it. If you wanted to go he would happily tag along with you. He would ask all kinds of questions, like why are you using that machine, what is it for, and has it worked on you. He’d try and use the machines you use, but since he’s not on your level he won’t be able to do as much. He’d probably lift a couple of weights, or do leg workouts.

Originally posted by got7official

Mark: He would most definitely work out with. He’s been meaning to gain some more muscle, so when you’d ask he’ll go. He’d ask you questions on how he can build his muscle mass and what he should eat more of. Piggy back rides and his excuse is so he can get bigger and you’re not opposed to it at all. He’d make you healthy shakes before your workout.

Originally posted by markificent

Yugyeom: At first he’d be okay with it because you guys do almost everything together, so this wouldn’t be any different. Then he’d notice that it’s all the time and he would be so irritated and done with you. He’d understand that you guys are best friends but absence makes the heart grow fonder. He will ignore every text that asks about going to work out with you.

Originally posted by markificent

BamBam: He’ll go to the gym with you for moral support, but he is not working out with you. He’s seen what you do at the gym and he’s not ready for that. Instead he’ll be your hype man. Cheering for you every time you finish a rep in your workout. He’ll fool around on the machines and end up falling for playing around. On some occasions he’ll be serious and workout but not always. (pretend Jackson isn’t there lmao and that BB is just cheering being extra)

Originally posted by se-tae

Jinyoung: Nice try but no. He would tell you he doesn’t need to go exercise with you because he’s healthy enough and that he has better things to do. You will try to get him to go every time you go but he will not budge. He says he’ll be there in spirit so you don’t need him there. Ignoring you when you try and pull the “but I’m your best friend” card.
