Y’all seem to think that ‘Respect’ing other human beings means simply being nice to them, accepting their views, and excusing their actions. But…?

Respecting a person as a PERSON means that you’re acknowledging that they exist. That’s it. Speaking about them, as if they are real. That’s what it means to respect a person as a person. You can disagree and downright condemn a person’s beliefs while still acknowledging that they are a person. Because we, as people, are perfectly capable of doing terrible things and still being people. We’re capable of bad, just like we’re capable of good. The point of respecting a person as a PERSON is not accepting their views. It is not sympathizing with them. It is not giving them the benefit of the doubt. And it is not allowing them to continue to hurt you or your people without consequence. It is not excusing them. It is not surrender. 

Respecting a person is realizing that they are still a person saying these terrible things. Not excusing, forgiving, approving, or supporting these terrible things and ideas, but knowing that it was a human itself behind these actions. A person is not suddenly subhuman just because they have terrible ideologies. They’re still a person. Because people do and can have terrible, unforgivable beliefs. And do do unthinkable things. But respecting them as a person is not forgetting that they’re a human. You’re not fighting a monster (Though, a monster in this context would of course be the harmful ideals spread, and the stigma that it both caused and was generated from. Etc.) But you’re fighting another human being.

Now, this by no means should ever weaken your resolve to fight and rise against ideas, campaigns, people that seek to degrade you and oppress you and make “jokes” (can you tell that I literally do not support Felix worth a damn.) at the expense of your suffering. If anything, I feel as if viewing them as a person (read: not forgiving or excusing them. But acknowledging that they are a person.) can only strengthen your fight. The second you fight as if you’re fighting a human being, is the moment that people around you begin to understand why you’re fighting and gain the will to fight themselves. Because they’re humans too. 

People on this site are so quick to completely forget the humanity of the other people on this site over something as remedial as shipping Peridot with Lapis over Amethyst. Do not weaken your own arguments, your own voices, and your own points by dropping your voice as if it were to regard and speak to subhumans. 

Do not let the forces you fight drop your battle from your own hands. You hold it firmly, back straight, and presented at the human being that pushed you, and didn’t expect you to push back. Make them realize that they are not subhuman. Let them know that you, as a human being, are speaking to them, as a human being, on a battle field that they do not want to to be leveled and fair. Let them know that they are not subhuman, even if their beliefs are garbage. Let them know, they’re not lesser as people. 

But as a human being, their actions are unacceptable. And inhuman. Allow them the privilege to feel ashamed. Do not give them the idea that, as a ‘subhuman’, these actions are expected and allowed of them. Let them know that it’s wrong. Let them know.

And that you, as a human being, will not stand for it. 

Don’t excuse them. But see them for what they are.

Keep your vision clear, and your voice true. Know that you do not owe them kindness. But know the force that opposes you. 

Know them in a way that, in some cases, they will refuse to know you.

That’s how you win wars, my friends.

Never blame your fans

I know many of you artists - whether you draw, write, or compose - are frustrated that your original work, especially your dream projects, aren’t getting the responses you were hoping for.

I feel the same way.

But some of you express your frustrations completely destructively and blame the world for not giving you the spotlight.

When you do that, you’re blaming your problems for existing rather than adjusting and compromising to solve them. You’re making excuses for your mistakes. You’re demanding the world to change but you are not willing to change with it.

This is the perfect mindset to NEVER succeed in anything, ever.

You need to accept some basic truths of art before you can go any further:

  • Your art should teach you as much as or more than it teaches others: If you claim your art opens horizons and widens minds, yours should be the first priority. You cannot speak without listening. You are not a righteous prophet enlightening the heathens with the true word. You are one humble person and your art is one humble person’s story.
  • There are no new stories, but there are always new storytellers. That amazing idea you have that nobody’s ever thought of before? Someone has. But nobody has told the story your way, or drawn the character your way, or sung the song your way. Art is not about being new. It is about being you.
  • Popular art is all about the beholder. All these shows and games with so much fan art? They got to that level because they command a personal investment from and serve the viewer - they have worlds their fans want to be part of, and your canon will be swept aside along the way. You the artist are not a god or a wise sage. You are a guide and a footman. To be an artist is to be humanity’s servant, not its lord - and there’s no shame in that.
  • Most of your fans are not artists or art critics. While there will be a good number of them in your fanbase, the vast majority are not going to be super-open-minded creative thinkers who value every single opinion, outlook, and story just because it’s done technically well. They will be ordinary people with ordinary, selfish interests, and they will care about your content more than your talent. You have to balance what you want to draw with what everyone wants to see.

But the most important part of being an artist or really a person at all is to understand this:

Nobody owes you success.

Nobody is under any obligation to pay anything you produce a second glance or support or promote it in any way.

Nobody is spiting or robbing you by not giving you a like or a reblog or a follow.

Every single gesture of appreciation you receive from someone is a courtesy - a gift that you earn, not a right you’re entitled to.

It is not the job of your audience to love your work. It is your job to make it lovable. And just because you are working really hard does not mean you are working in the right direction.

I know that thousands upon thousands of artists put hours or months or years into a project and feel like they get nothing in return. Sometimes it is not how hard you’re working but what you’re working for that is the problem. 

Sometimes you need to slow down and think, “Do I have to have this just so? What would the kind of person interested in my work be looking for, and where can I address it? Am I maybe taking myself and my work a little too seriously?” 

And a lot of artists don’t realize that as an amateur, you are the sole proprietor - you are your art. Whether people like you determines whether they like your art.

And that’s why when you blame everybody else and post ungrateful, catty garbage like this:

… you don’t subsequently become the next Toby Fox.

The simple fact is that people will pay you attention if they think your offering + your hassle are worth their attention.

You need to create a world that someone other than you will have fun in and you need to be a good host to everyone who visits

You need a world that will welcome your fans with open arms.

You need to build a world people can live & play in.

And you and your world need to appreciate your fans just for showing up.

Because this is exactly what the big fish do.


because they spread your work around to more people without shanking you on credit and who gets the likes


because they make your work show up sooner & more often on searches and are simply a nice gesture


because they take time out and pay good money to listen to your story and make you from a pauper into a prince


because if you appreciate no one, no one will appreciate you, nor should they

why i stopped identifying as ace

i know, I just recreated my blog and now I’m talking about Things. 

look, no one is arguing that asexuality is a real thing.  in fact, I used to call myself ace too.  I had an ace flag background, I had an ace ring – all of it. 

and you know what? nothing about my attraction has changed since then. even though I dropped the asexual label, I’d still be a firm member of the community if I decided to call myself ace. 

but I don’t. and i never will again. and here’s why: 

y’all are homophobes.

yes, you’ve heard it before! but now it’s coming from an asexual who felt so alienated and embarrassed by your actions that she will never come near your community anymore. 

you take tragedies, murders, and violent acts against sga people and turn them into some kind of oppression contest against you. you make everything about yourself, constantly.  you talk about sex more than any quote-unquote “allosexual” I’ve ever met.

you make posts about how an std-plague would be so cool because only aces would survive.  you take valid criticisms of your garbage behavior and cry “aphobes!” and put your fingers in your ears.

newsflash: you’re not oppressed because you don’t want sex.  yes, sexual situations may make you more uncomfortable than others, and finding a compatible partner might be rough, but those aren’t systematic.  

when I told my mom I was ace, she said “you haven’t met the right person.” rude, yes, but pretty normal for a mom response.

when I told my mom I liked girls, she sent me to conversion therapy and told me if it didn’t stop, I had to leave.

you see the difference? let’s be real: probably not.  you’ll probably tell me I’m either lying or generalizing.  but I want you to know this: you are the reason I don’t feel safe in the “ace community,” and you are the reason no one wants you in our safe spaces.  leave us alone.

I get what you are saying about tampons in womens rooms. But what if you are in the mens room? It's a lot harder to hide it there, and a lot less likely to be 'that's okay everyone in here does that' kind of response.

Wrap it in toilet paper and throw it away in the garbage can. No one is going to be watching your actions - most people avoid looking at or acknowledging one another at all and are in and out as quickly as possible. If you don’t think you can do it without attracting attention, bring a plastic bag and throw it all away at the end of the day.

The world is ugly, broken, and desperately sick. It is our responsibility to make it less so.

• pick up garbage you see in the grass
• if you like something about someone, their outfit, their smile, their laugh, etc, tell them
• be gentle
• hug someone
• invest in someone who is younger than you (a cousin, sibling, etc) and spend time with them
• give random gifts, even if it’s just a flower you found in the grass
• write letters to people you know, not just for their birthdays
• help someone carry their groceries to their car
• cuddle your pet
• ask people if they are okay and tell them that you actually want to know the truth
• plant gardens
• pack operation Christmas child boxes
• send a care package to someone
• listen
• be kind
• recycle everything you possibly can
• consider burning your own garbage so that landfills are less… filled
• say hello to a stranger
• smile
• cheer on a younger sibling/cousin at their extracurricular activities
• ask a younger person about what they like
• give a homeless person a meal (I’m sure they would appreciate anything)
• go Christmas caroling
• say goodnight and good morning
• volunteer

Do something that makes the world a better place. Start small, don’t expect to end world hunger in five days. Maybe you could help end hunger in your community, and other communities will do the same, and little by little - every community in the world is no longer hungry.

Hey antis, @adhara112 @aliceinoutlanerland @breezylouisey in particular. 

I didn’t mislead any of my followers. I got a message a few days ago from an anon stating that Sam was traveling somewhere with MM and to be prepared for innuendo. It’s not the first time I’ve received a message like that and the anon turned out to be wrong so I shared it with a few friends and then deleted it instead of causing unnecessary chaos. If I had posted it you would have had a problem with that too because it was insulting to your precious Queen MM. I didn’t insist Sam wasn’t traveling. I just didn’t think he was due to him having work yesterday and I wasn’t going to base my opinion on an anon who could have been anyone. I truly apologise for not having a gps tracker on the guy! You guys and your obsession with shippers and what we do and don’t say is completely out of hand. Stop spreading lies about me and assuming the worst of me due to your own irrational hatred. 

I’m sorry to my followers who constantly have to read this kind of garbage and who are sick of me defending myself but I can’t sit back while these people continue to lie about me and my intentions. 

6 Ways to really love the people in your life!

1. Tell them how great they are and how much you appreciate them.

2. Be genuine and real in your relationships. Don’t pretend and wear a mask but share your true, authentic self.

3. Note, however, that being genuine doesn’t mean always dumping your garbage on those around you. Be respectful of their needs and feelings too – and recognise that we influence and affect others moods. That is, we can choose to either brighten or pollute the atmosphere.

4. Be a great listener. We feel loved and valued when others really listen to us.

5. Don’t try to fix, change and make them into different people. Instead, provide them with the freedom to simpy be themselves.

6. We don’t have to agree with, or respect, each others choices in order to have a good relationship with them. We can still be kind, and just agree to disagree.

anonymous asked:

Come on, sasuke tried to kill sakura multiple times without hesitation and you mean to tell me he loves her?Someone he actually thought/cared about was naruto, he displayed more emotion around naruto than her. Naruto was such a big influence on him while sakura was just 'there'.He consistently turned her feeling down and he never really showed her feelings. Wtf how can you be pro sasuke and ship him with someone he doesn't even like-_- sasuke and naruto and sasuke even kissed! FUCKIN BRAIN DEAD

I genuinely want to know. Did you come here to get dragged? because these kinds of ignorant statements aren’t really helping your CLEAR ASS BIAS FOR SASUNARU. Alright then without further ado …lets get in this bitch.

“Come on, sasuke tried to kill sakura multiple times without hesitation and you mean to tell me he loves her?”

Your absolutely right he did try to kill her! He was also was out of FuCkINg MiND HUN. Do you even remember all the shit he went through? He single-handled (no pun intended) held the burden of the Uchiha on his shoulders. He was literally willing to go to any lengths necessary to achieve his ultimate goal. Even kill someone he thought of as family. Remember, he thought of team 7 as family because it reminded him of his lost past. I really can’t believe I have to explain this to you.

If your gonna bring up how he tried to kill sakura I thought you might like to see this..

They didn’t loose they damn arm from pickin daises lemme tell you. And for the record, Sasuke tried to kill Naruto many times lol. Or did you think he was trying to invite him in his pants or something? The world may never know!

“Someone he actually thought/cared about was naruto, he displayed more emotion around naruto than her.”

You are not wrong again! Sasuke did think/care about him! But the way you’re talking about….I’m just gonna assume you mean romantically. Naruto was so persistent in getting his best friend back and making sure he stopped Sasuke’s path of hatred and loneliness. And when it came down to it, Sasuke really acknowledged, and appreciated his efforts IN THE END. This led him to accept his efforts of stopping him on his cursed path and giving in. He accepted him as a friend, a.k.a brother-from-another-mother. GOD I LOVE THESE TWO. Anyway, the main story’s bond was always about Sasuke and Naruto, so of coarse you will see more interaction with them. Does it surprise you that Sasuke showed lots of emotion towards someone who he can LITERALLY sympathize with? 

Anyway for a man that is the embodiment of ‘actions speak louder than words’  Please explain to me that these pieces of art don’t show that he feels any type of emotion towards her…even just a little?. Come on I’d love to hear it.

This one being my personal favorite, because he only did this to his loved ones and it’s meant to show his affection towards the other. 

“Naruto was such a big influence on him while sakura was just ‘there’.”

Once again you are correct naruto was a big influence to him, but so was Sakura. Kishi stated that she filled his lonely existence with love, are you really going to argue that? If you are trying to say Sakura did absolutely nothing to try and stop Sasuke on his path of hatred, Imma gonna stop you right there and tell you to read the damn manga again. Why the fuck you think she went after him so many times? Sasuke always knew her intentions, he knew she deeply loved and cared about him. HE ACCEPTED THAT. But due to the curse of hatred and thirst for revenge, he was far to gone to acutely change at the drop a confession. You have to remember that the protagonist, Naruto, is the miracle worker who is utterly relentless when it comes to stopping ‘bad guys’ and changing their ways. But that doesn’t mean Sakura wasn’t as well, she tried with all her power to stop him. But of coarse the protagonist was the one to knock him out of his funky ass stage in life. It was to be expected after all. 

Please acknowledge that she did everything she could, and that she was strong enough to even dare to stop a criminal who was seen as a lost cause by pretty much everyone.

“He consistently turned her feeling down and he never really showed her feelings”

Like I stated before, he has always acknowledged her true intentions/confessions but he was in his ‘’funky ass stage in life” to acutely stop his extremest ideas of taking down the hierarchy in revenge for his family. Sasuke knew she was trying to stop him because she loved him and wanted the best for him, but that’s exactly what he didn’t want. Too busy tryin to take out konaha remember? He didn’t want to accept love into his life because hey, everyone he every loved in the past died at the cost of the hierarchy! Why let people into your life when you could just loose them and feel the same pain yet again, right? Have you ever lost someone you loved? Well let me tell you, it fucking sucks. Dealing with the constant thought of not being able to see them again, and knowing there was nothing you could have done. FUCK I’m just glad I didn’t have my whole blood line killed. I’m sure it was really hard to accept anyone’s feelings, after losing the very people who he cared most about. Whether it be platonic or romantic, at that time in his life accepting people feelings wasn’t an option. Why the hell do you think it took so long to get him back? He was all bout that revenge.

“Wtf how can you be pro sasuke and ship him with someone he doesn’t even like-_-”

I AM A PROUD MAMA AND HE IS MY FUCKING SON AND I SUPPORTED HIM AND HIS BAD DECISIONS BECAUSE KNOWING THE PLOT TO THE STORY (”Those who endure”-Sasuke fuckin Uchiha’s words right there for ya) I KNEW HE WOULD CHANGE FOR THE BETTER AND HE HAS CHANGED, HE REACHED HIS FULL POTENTIAL, YOU KNIT WIT. HE HAS LEARNED FROM HIS MISTAKES AND THAT’S WHAT MAKES HIM MY ALL TIME FAVORITE CHARACTER IN ANYTHING I’VE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE. I’M A HOE FOR THE UCHIHA, AND IT’S ALL THANKS TO HIM. HE IS WHAT WE CALL “WISE”, SO……

“sasuke and naruto and sasuke even kissed!”

lol, I like how you added sasuke’s name twice to reassure yourself that they did in fact kiss.

Could this be what you’re talking about?

WHAAAAAT THEY KISSED? Or it could be the fact that Naruto literally got smashed into his face. So much passion I’m swooning! Ever heard of comic relief? I recommend you look it up. It’s meant for those with a sense of humor.

It’s funny how you try and promote your little ‘’kiss’’ when this beautiful girl exists. SARADA FUCKIN UCHIHA 

And y’all know it takes a little more than a kiss to make a child if you know what I’m saying.*coughs*

“FUCKIN BRAIN DEAD”

I hope to God you don’t go around leaving this kind of garbage in people’s ask boxes. You might ruin their day you little shit! I really don’t see what’s the big deal? I enjoy my ship in peace, while people like you still make posts about how much you hate the ending and shit. I really didn’t come here for y’all salty ass negativity. YOU PEOPLE THRIVE OFF NEGATIVITY, UHHH???? MAYBE DON’T FOLLOW ANYMORE CONTENT ON NARUTO IF IT REALLY BOTHERS YOU TO THE POINT OF PUTTING THIS MESS IN MY ASK BOX. It’s really not healthy. But hey, for someone who is brain dead, that’s none of my business.

Sincerely,

-The bitch you pissed off

anonymous asked:

you keep comparing the attention laura is getting to bilquis & i understand what you're saying, but isn't it also important to keep in mind that bilquis has been in 1 scene of the entire show so far and laura is a secondary character if not a main character? shes still a bad person and bilquis is great but it's not an equal comparison

These kinds of messages are insidious and pathetic because they’re hypocritical attempts to detract from racial accountability. That Laura gets more attention from white fans than Shadow proves that your “equal comparison” argument is garbage because Shadow, the protagonist, gets the most screentime on the show yet these white women still claim that Laura is what makes the show interesting. This automatically makes your point moot. But let’s go further. Mad Sweeney hasn’t had that much screentime, but people are still hyping him up and calling him their “sweet baby”. 

The only people who are happy about, paying attention to, discussing, and celebrating characters such as Bilquis, Jinn, Salim, Mr. Ibis, Mr. Jacquel, and Mr. Nancy are people of color. No white people are. 

Let’s talk about LGBT representation, which white gays clamor for. Jinn and Salim are two canonically gay Arab immigrant men who immediately bond and form an intimate connection founded on their shared ethnicity. Not only that, they engage in one of the most explicit, loving, and tasteful sex scenes between two men that I’ve seen ever on television. Yet only LGBT people of color are talking about this. I’ve seen white gays say things like “oh I wish Fuller could have done this with Hannibal and Will” or “oh replace them with Hannibal and Will and this scene is great”. 

Let’s talk about female AND LGBT representation, which white wlw clamor for. In the books, Bilquis is exclusively heterosexual, but in the show she’s shown to be bisexual. Yes, she hasn’t had that much screentime yet, but if she was a white woman people would be nutting their pants. Bilquis is literally the Queen of fucking Sheba. I’d say that’s a tad more impressive than some white woman coming back from the dead. She’s the Queen of Sheba, she fucking DEVOURS the people she seduces with her vagina, and she’s bisexual. Fuller has already stated that she’s going to have much more development in the show. IF she was white, white wlw would be crying about how important she is, about how interesting she is, about how sexy she is. She kills men, she has sex with women, and she’s a goddess - these are all things white wlw claim to want in their wlw representation, but the only people who are hyping Bilquis and loving on her are women of color. 

White wlw characters who don’t get that much screen time or who aren’t even main characters still get heaped with praise. But here we have an explicitly canon bisexual female character who seduces and devours men and who is actually a goddess. Yet no response from the typical white wlw. 

There’s yet another wlwoc character from the books who’ll be on the show and I’m SURE that none of these same white women will care about her. 

So, frankly, you can take your “it’s not an equal comparison” bullshit and fuck off. 

[BTS x Forest Fairy!AU] Jimin

Keeper of Trees & Roots Park Jimin 

Find Keeper of Streams & Waterfalls Min Yoongi (here)
Find Keeper of Rabbits & Deer Jeon Jungkook (here) 

  • he lives in a makeshift tree house that he’s built over the years between two twin oaks that stand smack dab in the middle of the forest 
  • to get to the house you actually have to climb the tree which is a feat not many can do and so not many people have ever actually seen keeper jimin
  • and that might also have to do with the fact that he’s rather weary of people passing through the forest because lots of times it’s woodsmen and jimin can’t stand the feeling or sight of one of the thousand year old trees being chopped to pieces 
  • so for the most part if a human walks by he just hides himself behind the leaves or in the large open holes of trees 
  • although he isn’t fond of the humans, over time he’s found things in the forest that he’s grown accustomed to collecting like a forgotten picnic blankets is his window curtain and scattered pieces of jewelry, misplaced notebooks and pens, half empty baskets, decorate the inside of his treehouse
  • he doesn’t wear much aside from rolled up pants because whenever he puts on a shirt it gets ripped to shreds while he’s climbing trees soooo
  • interestingly enough he has bands tattooed around his upper arms to resemble the roots of trees forming decorative patterns it kind of reminds you of celtic knots 
  • he always has like dirt on his cheeks and on his fingers because he spends half the day climbing from branch to branch or digging in the ground 
  • he likes to sit on the highest branch where the nests of birds are and although he isn’t the keeper of them, birds really like him 
  • especially when he sings which he has a tendency to do around sundown
  • but you know he’s just adorable with leaves stuck in his hair, dirt smeared on his cheek and like a little swallow keeping him company on his shoulder
  • but one day you’re in the forest and you’re there because you needed time away from your family and you know it’s going to storm but you don’t care you find comfort in nature so you head for the twin oaks in the middle of the forest because that’s been a favorite place of yours since you were a kid
  • and you make yourself comfy against the roots that stick out of the ground and you take out your book to read and you don’t notice the boy that peeks his head out of his treehouse covered by the branches of leafs and you most definitely have no clue that he’s watching you
  • and a couple hours pass and jimin doesn’t make himself known but he’s wondering what you’re doing just……sitting there…….plus he can hear the thunder and tbh he’s getting worried 
  • and you go on reading you don’t even notice the small droplets of rain until all of a sudden everything is dark because of the grey clouds and the small rain turns into a full on pouring downfall
  • and you close your book and cover your head and you’re like s Hit how do i get home it’s dark i can’t see anything

Dear Fanfic Writers ...

You know that ball of lead you get in the pit of your stomach when someone leaves a negative comment on one of your stories? It really sucks, doesn’t it? And it’s hard to shake that bad feeling once you get it. You worked hard on that fic and posted it hoping people would like it, and it hurts when someone tells you they didn’t.

Well, listen up, because I’m going to tell you something you need to hear right now: people who leave negative comments on fanfic are rude garbage people, which means their opinions are also garbage.

You don’t have to give weight to garbage opinions from garbage people. They’re not worth your time or emotional energy.

Instead of letting that one negative comment crumble your sense of self-worth, try to focus on all the positive comments you’ve gotten. Because those positive comments were written by kind, thoughtful, lovely people who think you’re terrific. And their opinions deserve to carry a lot more weight than garbage people’s opinions.

If you’re still feeling down about a negative comment, here are a few more things to try telling yourself:

  • That negative comment might feel important right now, but it really isn’t.
  • You don’t have to pay attention to it.
  • You don’t have to defend your choices to anyone.
  • You don’t deserve to be treated like this.
  • Your feelings of inadequacy are irrational. You can let them go.
  • It’s okay to make mistakes. You don’t have to dwell on them.
  • You don’t have to be perfect to be okay.
  • You did something creative and took a risk. That’s worth being proud of.
  • It’s not your responsibility to satisfy everyone.
  • It’s not your problem that someone didn’t like something about your story.
  • You did the best you can do and that’s good enough.
  • You have value, and other people can see it even when you can’t.

Hopefully this will help you feel better and get back to work. Believe me, we’ve all been there at one time or another, and we’ll all be there again. Such is life. But remember: this feeling will go away. And you are appreciated.

I got an ask about my comic process so I figured I’d answer it separately coz it might get long haha. I have no idea what I’m doing! So don’t take this as gospel, it’s just what I do and how I roll.

1. Planning! Generally I write down a bunch of one sentence or couple word points. They don’t even have to be plot points, they’re just stuff I want to happen at one point or another in the story. I’d show you my notebook but it is 100% spoilers lmao. But say for Chapter 1, notes would be like - meets jude - loses bag - is ambushed- can’t speak - is let in the house - runs from zombies - other people. Something like that. I usually do a couple chapters of notes at a time, because you can see these notes are SUPER vague, and that way I can move things around so they affect the story more. A lot of times I rearrange ‘reveals’ or information so they impact each other more than having them be in different orders, if that makes sense. I don’t write any dialogue or script, apart from one or two lines I might definitely want to be in a scene or chapter.

2. Shitty roughs! I approach my roughs like I approach storyboards - a bucnh of establishing shots and poses, and then cut down what you don’t need. Since a lot of my comics are dialogue, gestures and facial expressions are pretty important. I do most of my roughs in a 4x5 2$ sketchbook I got from Daiso lmao, 

You can see I scribble things out constantly, which I think is important! I’ve ditched entire pages of stuff because they weren’t working or I thought of something better, and it’s important to not be totally married to an idea. I don’t really use templates or anything either, coz it’s easier to just draw in panels as you go and resize them later. Since I don’t do scripts or plans, this is where I pretty much write everything. I’m not sure what kind of tips to give here, but I definitely say all of my dialogue out loud to myself and wander around acting… which feels and looks dumb but it’s as important in comics as it is in animation! Use yourself as reference! Think of how your characters would feel in these situations and how they’d react to their surroundings. I set the first scene of Chapter 3 in Jude’s workroom to show that some time had passed and that he was comfortable enough with Joe in the house to get back to routine, but not so comfortable that he wouldn’t instantly shove a hot soldering iron directly into his face lmao. Your environment can show a lot about a scene!

3, Tie downs! Make it look like… not garbage…

And again, you can still mess with stuff! I change shit after I’ve completely finished a page sometimes. idk I can’t stress that enough - I see a lot of people getting stuck on their first roughs coz they’re not perfect, but that’s fine! Do your roughs, change them in your tie downs, change them in your inks, change them when you’re colouring. Nobody’s gonna know unless you tell them lol. Sometimes stuff has to change for it to work better and its good to be able to recognize that.

And then the rest is just finish it, but I hope this is the kind of process stuff you’re looking for? I tried to not be too technical coz lbr i draw with a hotel pen in a dollar store sketchbook, the materials aren’t that important lol. Basically my advice is: a chapter is a scene, think of it like a DVD chapter where one important plot point happens and it has its own self contained beginning, middle, and end. Have your point you wanna make, make it, and then go on and make another one, and then baby you got a stew going comic

anonymous asked:

Hi I liked what you said about the cover “ship argument” and agree it should have been just Sarah or the Scoobies, so sad tony wasn’t there too, but i’m wondering your opinion on how Spuffy fans treat Sarah on twitter, she’s spoken about it before and mentioned it during the reunion. I know it’s not everyone but it seems when she posts anything either with David or pro Bangel a lot of them attack her and can be quite vile and disgusting towards her. She stays respectful but they go in everytime.

Thanks for understanding, and before I answer your question I’ll try to make myself clear again because I feel some people have misunderstood the point I was trying to make.

I wasn’t making a “ship argument”. My saying I didn’t dig the Bangel cover wasn’t a jab at that ship. I definitely acknowledge it was a relevant pairing in the show. I wasn’t implying Spuffy should’ve been on the cover instead. 100% NO. I think to have a ship on the cover was basically missing the point (and a waste of an opportunity) of the show. Buffy was the title character. She made the show. She was the show. She alone will stand. The ships - either one of them - were merely an ingredient of the million things that made the show great. This wasn’t Dawson’s Creek or 90210 or any other teen drama. This was about one girl fighting the forces of darkness, who on occasion happened to indulge in smoochies with a couple of vampires. I wish that girl had stood alone on the cover, that’s all.

Okay, point made. Now to your question.

I think that’s bullshit. I think that’s the worst and darkest side of fandom, one that I don’t want to be part of or condone in any way. I feel ashamed of those people, and I hate that they give a bad name to shippers. I hate that because of them I have to take the blame and be pointed out as part of the “Internet loudmouths and ass-kissers of unpopular, ignored comics“ just because I happen to ship the same ship some moronic internet trolls do.  I think anyone who dares insult or threaten an actor for being outspoken about their shipping preferences is an ill-intentioned douchebag at best, and a worthless piece of human garbage at worst. 

Shipping is personal, by definition. That’s true for us as fans as it is true for the actors as people who have every right to have personal preferences. 

There’s this irrational idea that if an actor supports your ship, they are somehow validating it or making it more canon or more important than the rest. That’s idiotic. Like, I kind of get that people want others to like the same things they do, especially if that person is someone you admire. But shipping should be about how the relationship between two characters makes you feel on a very personal, intimate level. That’s why we ship. We ship because we find something in those two people that makes us feel something very personal, whatever that maybe. We don’t choose ships based on how actors or other people perceived them. So why should be angry about how others feel or not feel about our ships? It’s stupid and senseless and anyone who attacks someone else because of shipping preferences, whether they are an actor or a fellow fan, is a fucking jerk. 

Ship and let ship.
