fanning over stuff

As a bit of an enthusiast when it comes to historical fashion it annoys me they tried to "modernize" it. Like the original dress wasn't period-accurate either, but it DID have a basis in history (albeit the wrong period), whereas the new dress doesn't seem to have any respect to history

i feel you, but if they had ditched the historical accuracy for a good looking dress, i would let it slide. like, i can’t speak for historical accuracy on cinderella’s dress, but just look at this

it really looks like a magical dress. like a big, fluffy, beautiful blue cloud of a dress. just looking at it makes me want to reach out and feel it’s texture. the only downside is the too tight corset, imo, but just loose it up a bit, let the poor girl fucking breathe, and you have a simple, yet regal and dreamy dress. a++

now compare it to this and just

what is this stiff, piss-colored thing. what the hell. it looks as sad as i feel while seeing it.

actually, for better accuracy, just take these two similar shots of the princesses wearing their respective gowns:


really, in my opinion, there’s no competition. this dress is lazy and boring. step up your game once more, disney.

before learning about the mcelroys I’d never been a huge fan of any real actual human beings before. 

Like, I love the stuff they make but I really just love them as creators even more than I love their creations, they could make/do anything and I’d like it just because I like them as people. 

okay but can we stop using the term “saviour slut”, and classifying some fans as being “better” og “worse” based on their favourite albums? who cares whether people prefer the first albums or the more recent ones. let people enjoy the music, whether they wish to listen to just one album or all of them.

A super fast breakdown of how I’ve been painting (with blue haired Teru, bc why not) because I’ve had a lot of people tell me they like how I’ve been coloring (thank you!!!!!) and a bunch mentioned they’d like to be able to color like this too, and honestly it’s not hard nor complicated at all, so here! This is how I’ve been doing it 👍

✖ we’re not ashes ✖

Ohhh I’m just being informed that RM players chanted “Atleti, decidme qué se siente” in their celebration last night.

Ok I’ll take a few minutes to reply. It feels great knowing that my team, with a budget 4-5 times smaller than yours got to win a Liga against all odds and against the 2 most powerful teams in the world. Without the refs help every week. And you needed all the help in the world to win it in the last match-day. (2 Ligas in 8 years? Lol take a look at that with all that money)

It feels great knowing that Atleti has grown up so much that we’re a thought in your minds while you are celebrating.

It’s amazing to know that our happiness will never be measured by numbers.

And you know, it’s completely delightful to see my team celebrating at all levels as a family. We don’t need titles to celebrate what we feel. I’m sure people in the Calderón yesterday felt things no other fan has felt over winning stuff.

So once again, orgullosos de no ser como vosotros. Now more than ever before.

I just realized… I was okay to know that the AC Movie was gonna have it’s original story, but then again…

I remember wanting it based on AC1… now I’m sad cause I won’t get to see a real-life Malik getting angry at Altaïr.

Or if it was for AC2, there won’t be real Leonardo and Ezio hugs.

I am now torn.|||orz

Hey! I was wondering if you had an tips on drawing anatomy for a 7th grade artist? Thanks :)

Hey! Unfortunately I’m not sure I have any solid tips that come from me personally because, frankly, I am shit at anatomy. I rely very heavily on references and, if left to my own devices, would be lucky to make a stick figure look decent. But let’s see if I can scrape together something for you.

1. References. I know I said I rely heavily on them but seriously, it’s a good place to start. Draw from life, study photos, screencaps, even other art. Look at how the lines and shapes of the human body come together, how they intersect. Try not to think about every literal line and detail, but start with simple shapes and build up from there. (This is all advice I need to take myself, lmao.)

2. I use a program called Design Doll as a reference for a lot of my drawings. You can move and pose any number of models in a 3D space, and even use morph sliders to customize the look of the model, to make it look more realistic, more cartoonish, even chibi if that’s your thing. It does have its drawbacks (you have to pay $75 for the full version in order to save models and scenes, but for me it’s been a worthy investment) but it’s a fun program to play around in. I dunno, some people might think it’s cheating but it’s been a boon for me.
*ETA: The models don’t have genitalia. The female models can have breasts, but there aren’t any nipples. No man junk. I’d consider this safe for you to use.

3. If you can, hit up a bookstore and try to find a copy of Burne Hogarth’s Dynamic Figure Drawing. It can be pricey but it might be worth the investment for you if you don’t already have it. It’s a classic staple among figure drawing books. My high school art teacher let me borrow his copy and it’s got some good stuff in it.
*ETA: If my high school art teacher felt safe letting me borrow this, I think you’ll be okay.

4. I looked around DeviantArt for you and honestly it’s not easy to find anatomy or figure drawing tutorials that aren’t NSFW or that I’d feel okay sending you because, well, you’re a minor. Shingworks has a few nice tutorials on anatomy and other things, though.

I’m sorry if this isn’t really great advice. :/ Seriously though, look at references, find photos of people in interesting poses, and draw them, copy them, draw them again, and start learning how the human body moves! It’s what I did when I was a kid in elementary and middle school, drawing people without caring so much about what my art actually looked like, and I didn’t do so badly then. :) Good luck and if you ever have any other questions about art, feel free to hit me up!

P.S. here’s something I drew years and years ago when I was your age, back before I knew what fan art was and got caught up in what my work looked like compared to others and became paralyzed by insecurity. Keep doing you and never be ashamed of your work!
