Happy 2nd Birthday, The Amazing Book is Not on Fire!

“we might have been the two guys with fringes, but it is all of you who have supported us and inspired us, and everything that we have experienced together over these years, that has made this world of “dan and phil,” so this is for you.

hi Ally,,, as some one who's trying to get the hang of drawing expressions and faces in general I was wondering if you had any tips as to how to make it more natural?? like I find myself drawing the same expression every time on different characters and I feel like it's hard to change it up with out making it look strange :/

this is a very psychological barrier that i also face!! sometimes we’re in the mindset that oooo gotta draw our characters glamourous/pretty that dramatic expressions that stretch the face feels like it’s ruin that, so you have to start with an open mind and be ready to stretch that mouth a little longer, raise those brows a little higher, etc.

having a mirror beside you to reference from your own expression is very helpful as well! here’s my tag for expression tutorials and refs

one of the things i love about learning a language is how it really makes you question the original intention of your words. i remember ages ago looking up “i’ll still love you” in french to double check and it turns out it’s"je t'aimerai encore" if the love has decreased and might not last,  but “je t'aimerai toujours” if you mean you’ll love them forever. and i was just staring at my wall because i genuinely didn’t know which i meant and it all got very emotional. all because french makes a distinction that english doesn’t. 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TSUKISHIMA KEI!!!

“Sam, you and dad, you’re the most important people in my life. And now… I never should have come back Sam, it wasn’t natural, and now look whats come of it. I was dead and I should’ve stayed dead. You wanted to know I was feeling, well thats it. So tell me, what could you possibly say to make that alright?“
