featured eyes

anonymous asked:

Do you imagine Hermione as Caucasian, black, or mixed? I am always curious to see how others see her.

lol to be 100% candid with you Anon I am not the world’s most visual person. (That is actually a huge understatement. I have the poorest facial recognition of anyone I know.) I mostly identify people in writing by their gestures or habits, or by indications in their dialogue. But if I had to answer this question, I honestly see her like this:

Yeah, so, obviously I’ve been a fan longer than the movies have been out, and this is apparently how they started portraying her in merchandise until Emma Watson started playing her. Crazy, right?

Anyway, I tend to describe her as having olive skin, freckles around the eyes, golden features; I emphasize things that glimmer and glow in the sun because that plays into how I characterize her. I’m super down with POC Hermione, though. I don’t love the way Joanne defended her casting decision (I’d have gone for something more like “okay, canon obviously indicates that I wrote her to be light-skinned, but good acting is good acting and being white isn’t at all important to who she is” vs “LOOK, BUSHY HAIR, SEE??!”) but I truly love the way people have come to portray her, however it is that they do it (and @upthehillart‘s POC Harry is a goddamn panty dropper so honestly thank god for more visually creative people)

I was just looking at a gif set of Even from episode 1 and I was noticing how like… perfect he looked? And not saying that he doesn’t still look gorgeous and perfect in the later episodes but hear me out… I was wondering if it was a conscious creative decision to make him almost look too perfect at the beginning? Like cover up his flaws with makeup, style his hair perfectly, maybe highlight some of his features more (lips, cheekbones, eyes) because to Isak he was this beautiful Ken doll almost? And when he first met him, he didn’t know anything about his problems. Almost like Isak wasn’t seeing him as a human, but more of like this untouchable god. And I noticed that as the season went on, we gradually started seeing him with less and less “enhancement” if you will.. his skin is natural, his hair less styled.. idk if this is a thing they consciously thought of, but I was just kinda taken aback by how perfect he looked in the first two episodes before Isak really started to get to know him.

cat face tutorial i guess??

I can try!!! my faces are actually pretty basic/usually follow the same model so this isn’t exactly revolutionary lol  

I always start with the muzzle first no matter the angle, it offers a good starting point and i can judge where the rest of the proportions go from there. (for some reason the video cut out the last bit but i redrew the ears lol). I try to sketch fast so i can get the initial idea/concept out before going back in and doing revisions (this was done in like 6min)

my goal isn’t to recreate the original photo perfectly - the reference photo is there so i can use it as a guide for my proportions 


Here are some general proportion rules/guides for drawing more stylized. I always use the vertical face line to align my nose and mouth. 

thats pretty much it! make sure to avoid having the same face syndrome by switching up your features - eye shape, fur length, cheekbones, nose etc. i tend to favor slanted eyes and triangular faces and short fur!! have fun experimenting

a mother can be a monster when she has needles for teeth and cuts your face open when she kisses your cheeks and then sews you back together, over again, because she braids your hair so tight it rips your skull like teddy bear flesh, (all soft from the lipstick skinned child love from your little brother, smelling of his baby spit and dust bunnies) but like I said you rip open.

you leak stuffing, and she spits her sour wine spit into your hair for not being able to keep yourself together,

when she tells you to bring your brother some milk for his nightmares and when you walk into his room he screams at your face. reverberating into a film noir, horror flick that teen hearts race to, secrete fluid to, you are the monster. you are the creature feature angry, wild eye boys overstep their bounds to at the drive in. you are the acre of corn maze kids are getting lost in on Halloween night, you are the yelp when the lights go out and he puts his tongue in. the fake blood is gushing, the twins are asking if you want to play. no one can tell the ingenue’s scream from some slut in a broken down truck.

your googly teddy bear eye is popping out by a rusted spring. you look like the black and white Frankenstein your brother cried to with your fathers hand keeping his twisting neck still. to make him a man. for the greater good, that loves the ready made microwaveable skin of young boys. and you big sister, taller than the tree he climbs, you let him fall now, your winter branches weak from the arthritic rain falling from crying stars with daggers in their white knuckles. heaven is poisoning us tonight.

who is protected? who is just lost? I’m asking because I see his pubescent emotions weigh on you like the Christmas lights flickering out beneath the heavy snow. our tree is naked and shivering, it’s leaves like impulsively cut hair falling across the cold mud flesh, and freezer burnt feet. you let him fall. you gave him scars. everybody always says you’ve got your mothers eyes, and you’re a monster

so why don’t you just dig in?

Some more previews of child units I’m editing right now.

Sherlock wakes up, his brow furrowing as a small frown takes place in his features, eyes squinting as he blinks awake to sun in his face as it’s at just the right angle to spill through the crack in the drapes, hitting him in the face where he rests his head on John’s chest. After a moment he groggily lifts his head, blinking away the sleep and turning to look at John, the sunlight now pooling along his collarbone, and Sherlock leans over to press a kiss behind John’s jawline just under his ear, smiling as he whispers, ‘do you know what today is?’ and John smiles softly, eyes still closed and voice low as he says, ‘you know I do’
