Hi hi I feel kinda nice!! 🤗
About to watch one of my favourite movies, “Birdman”, by the amazing Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, for the thousandth time (this movie is a MUST SEE, it’s phenomenal!!!!), and earlier my friend and I went to this get together with someone we hadn’t talked to for ages and it was really really lovely‼️💓💓💓💓
I’m just really happy to be living in a time where I get to experience two of my favorite ships being cannon.
The first of which is obviously Richonne. They are beauty. They are happiness. They are royalty. Let’s all give this poetry in motion a round of applause. I’m so happy TWD is back on. I’m happy to see the Grimes family doing what they do best!
The second is Jaime Lannister getting as far away from Cersei as possible. Like I know that this isn’t technically a pairing, but for me it is. I love the pairing of Jaime x Anti Cersei. It is truly one of my favorites, and I can’t believe it is finally cannon. Like I know it’s been a couple of months, but I can’t help the feeling of glee that fills me up whenever I think about it.
Tatiana Maslany plays 10+ characters - each with specific vocal registers, accents, body movements, and rhythms. She has spoken English, German, French, and Ukrainian. She played four characters in a six character scene. She utilized music to create individual heartbeats and internal rhythms for her characters. She understands what they love and what they fear. I am in awe. I will always be in awe.
How do you draw a closed snoot? Amd also how do you draw an open snoot from the front?
I draw closed snoots pretty much the same way as opened ones, as illustrated in this one tutorial i did a bit ago! Same goes for drawing opened mouths from the front.
for closed muzzles, I tend to do placement lines for where the base of the muzzle connects to the face (and also as a marker for where the bottom of the eyes are gonna go!) and a line down the center of the muzzle to help me place the nose and make the upper lip indent shape! This is something I honestly don’t do too much bc I mostly forget but it helps SO MUCH
end result from using said guidelines hfhfh
as for opened snoots, here’s a lil thing using the same formula as my first tutorial;
Firstly, I start out roughing out where I want everything to go! The purple line in the right image helps me place the top corners of the mouth, where i’ll be dragging the lines for the sides of the mouth in a sec. This is a good time to map out how you want your expression to go, since the corner of the mouth I find makes it easier to connect everything else as you’re going along.
After you get that sorted, drag the lines (blue lines) down from the corners (it’s perfectly fine if the lines don’t match up with the corners, it doesn’t have to be exact!), which are the rest of the mouth. Now is a good time to go in and tighten up/stretch the mouth shape to however it’ll benefit your character/style/expression. My sona has pretty round shapes, so I keep things rounded for her most of the time. (unless i’m exaggerating her expression, then things tend to get a little bit sharp and asymmetrical)
Annnnnnnd then you go in and start adding details! Teeth, tongue, etc. You can see I kinda shortened the lower jaw shape lines a bit after everything since I noticed the mouth was a bit too wide/sliding to the right.. Just so it aligns with the top part of the jaw a little easier!! this is pretty much how I do all my mouth/muzzle stuff, so I hope it helps a bit!
can i just say i paid for a feel good fluff game where i could potentially romance this closeted suburban masc-twink daddy but noooo instead i got a batshit crazy christian cult leader slash murderer who, under more fortunate circumstances, still dumps me for his wife, after screwing me on his own romantic private yacht surrounded by whales
