Just a reminder: all good things in a fandon will reach the toxic areas of a fandom. It’s unavoidable and all we can do is just remember that these things are good regardless of what the toxic people say about it.

Hi there! I’m afraid this question doesn’t have a quick and easy answer. ಠ~ಠ Here’s what I think has MOST helped me to do the art you see on this blog:
- USING REFERENCES. Capital letters because it’s the most important!! My favorites are classical paintings. I also use a ton of photos to understand different elements of a piece. How do I draw a jawline from below? What does leather look like? How does light even work? References references references.
- Building on experience with traditional media. This includes oil paint, acrylic, watercolor, graphite, etc. I don’t use them much anymore, but I paint digitally how I painted traditionally. I’ve been doing digital art since late 2015, but I’ve been doing all kinds of art since I was young.
- Practicing. A lot. I hate this advice. But here is a short anecdote to prove my point: I felt like my work hadn’t improved much in the last year or so, then I started doing portrait commissions. Since February I’ve painted almost 25 now, and just looking back at the first portraits versus the most recent ones, I’ve gotten way better at painting skin. Check it out:
Crazy, right? That’s only three months! I’m admittedly working really hard, but it’s totally possible to see substantial improvement in a short amount of time. And it’s super motivational when you do!
- Paint things you don’t want to paint. I am the worst at this. But my motto is that I will at least TRY to paint something before I assume it’s going to turn out horribly. And it usually doesn’t! Don’t get stuck painting the same faces, and avoiding hands, and never doing backgrounds. (I know I’ve posted only portrait paintings for months, but I genuinely believe this!)
- Sticking with it. If you’re starting from scratch, be realistic about how long it takes to learn a skill. I’m 25 now. I’ve been painting “seriously” since I was 14 or so. That is 11 years of practice and I have a loooong way to go.
This is the bits and pieces from what I had of a serial killer!Arin au before. It jumps around a little, but I thought maybe you guys would dig it!
“You couldn’t be more obvious if you tried,” Suzy says
as she sits down at the little flimsy table in their hotel room.
Arin turns away from the window, pausing the cloth in
his hand where he’d been meticulously cleaning the already sterling silver of
“What do you mean?” He asks her. Though he’s playing
dumb, because he’s good at it. He’s used to it.
“Fuck off, you know exactly what I mean,” she says,
rolling her make up lined eyes at him. “I’m talking about your kills
“What about ‘em?” Arin turns back to the window,
watches people milling about in the parking lot. His hand strokes over his knife.
“Gee, maybe just the fact that every guy you’ve gutted
these last few days have looked like Dan.”
Arin freezes, his hand suddenly tight around the
handle of the knife.
“Don’t-“Arin starts but Suzy scoffs.
“Arin, you’re getting real fucking soft on me. Soft
people don’t do shit besides get in my way.”
Arin recognizes the tone, the annoyance. Suzy is
better at this. He just needs to remember that. There’s something mucking
everything up, his brain and organs all muddy. The last few kills haven’t even
been that satisfying. Maybe Suzy is right. Arin is looking for dark hair and
dark eyes, but it’s never in the right form.
“Fine,” He says, “I’ll kill a girl tonight. You’re
Suzy moves towards him, slides in his lap and Arin is
careful to move the knife from her reach. She kisses him once lightly, smearing
purple lipstick against his mouth.
You know what I've noticed is that GG refers to Iris being the "love of Barry's life" a few times now. I love how it puts Iris above any other girl and also implying the permanece of their relationship. Also it's very sweet ❤
Grant knows and respects the story that the show has been trying to tell since the pilot, he’s been really consistent on this point. Even when he did have to promote Barry and PBP, he never talked about that relationship the way he talked about Barry’s relationship with Iris, even before they actually got together in S3.
