You are one of the most inspirational artists I've ever come across! Your use of color and conceptualization is amazing! That said, do you have any tips about how to effectively boil down ideas to one image? Whenever I try, I'm always underwhelmed by the results as they seem very obvious to me. I know it's kind of a hard question, so can you maybe share your thought process behind your work? Thank you and keep on rocking! :)
Yakov wanting Yuri's long hair to be cut partially cos it reminds him of Viktor but Lilia highkey loves it, loves braiding his hair before comps.
WAHAHAHAHAHA, Yakov wanting Yuri’s long
hair to be cut partially bc it reminds him of Viktor is so… him????? But I’m sure her secretly loves it HUEHUE, he just can’t admit it :3c
I’M SURE LILIA LOVES IT OMFG, I’m still crying over the fact that it’s actually canon that she’s the one who does his hair before competitions??? I feel like she treats Yuri as the child (or grandchild??? who knows, they might have children together LMAO) she never had??? She acts all tough and strict on him but that’s bc she adores him so much and just wants him to succeed…!!! ;///7///;
OH MY GOD, imagine Yakov gruffly telling Yuri to cut his hair bc it’s getting too long and annoying and Lilia just WHIPPING AROUND AND GLARING AT YAKOV WITH SHARPEST, FLINTIEST EYES EVER, ALMOST DARING HIM TO FINISH HIS SENTENCE AND YAKOV BACKING OFF BC NO ONE MESSES WITH LILIA…
Anywho, TYSM FOR SHARING MY DEAR ANON!!!! ;///7///; <3333333
Don't you think that Ravus and Ardyn have a very similair hair style? Both have the same lenght and those three strands of hair on their head that are pushed back (if you know what I mean). The only difference is that Ardyn has not comped his hair in the last 2000 years LMAO
I mean, if you wanna get really deep behind the potential idea of why Ardyn and Ravus has similar hairstyles, you can think of this: Wouldn’t Ardyn have gotten to know Ravus over the years of Ravus being enlisted into the Niflheim forces? Wouldn’t Ravus revere Ardyn in some sort of way as well?
Think about it: Ravus probably (unwillingly) enlisted into the Niflheim forces when he was about 18. Head probably got shaved at some point, and he basically had to fight not only through the ranks to make it to a high enough position to be acknowledged and feared by those around him, but also had to fight off the fact that he was once a prince of a powerful providence, but had his name drug through the mud after his mother was killed and he was given nothing but the burden of the Fleuret name to amend. An ex-prince of Oracle blood? Now, that is something to take note of. Especially when Ardyn knew that he needed a few extra pieces to accomplish his endgame of eternal sleep.
So in walks Ardyn, giving a damn about the probably lanky and ‘unfit’ recruited prince, helping him up to his feet and making sure that Ravus was staying out of trouble and doing his best to keep true to his plans to keep Tenebrae at peace and to keep Lunafreya safe. The one man who showed Ravus even the slightest bit of kindness in his sleazy way, showcasing his power and authority against those that opposed him. I imagine Ravus aspired to be like that. Young and naive, he wanted to be as well-known as Ardyn was – as charismatic, as cunning, as feared.
And so he tried, and tried, and eventually as his rank rose, his hair grew out, and he kept his at about this length in almost a commemoration of the man who motivated him to become the High Commander and the man who showed Ravus that perhaps there might have been a moment in time where he felt like he could do something more in his life to help protect the sister he cared about.
So yeah~ I think Ravus and Ardyn do have similar hairstyles. Ravus just decides to straighten out his hair, because nobody wants to look that much like a hobo, after all. c:
i hate all the “stop worrying about unis and big hair, that doesnt make you a world champ, get back in the gym” like wtf do you think all these athletes are doing at practice??? doing comp hair on each other??? designing new uniforms??? believe it or not you can look good and still hit at worlds

“Is he awake yet?” You ask once you step foot in the boardinghouse.
“No, he’s upstairs in one of the guestrooms.” Damon told you, holding a glass of bourbon.
“What the hell happened? Elena didn’t tell me anything.” You asked the dark haired vampire.
“All I know is that some vampire dude threatened him about you and Ric lost it and went to murder the vampire only to fiend him with other vampires, if it wasn’t for the ring he would’ve been dead, will dead dead.” Damon explained. You felt hurt that Ric got himself killed because of you. Tears gathered in your eyes at the thought of losing Ric, and it being your fault. “No, no, no, no I did not mean it like that (y/n) in no way in hell that is your fault those vampires are stupid to threaten him, especially with you. Ric loves you he’ll do anything for you.”
“Where is he?” You shakily asked, your voice wavering.
“Come on I’ll show you.” Damon lead you to the second floor and the third door on the left. You were about to get in when Damon held your hand. “He’s in bad shape, you got to hold yourself together, for him at least.”
“Okay, thank you Damon.” You were really grateful for Damon, and even though sometimes he puts Ric in danger you know he cares for him.
“Hey I’m the friendly vampire.” You chuckled and slipped into the room.
You could see Alaric’s sleeping body. As you stepped closer you could see him clearer. His clothes were torn, he had dried blood on his face, nick, hands and basically everywhere.
“Oh, Ric what have they done to you?” You whispered to yourself. You sat on the bed beside him. You moved his hair out of his face, and sighed. He looked bad.
You stood up and walked to the ensuite, took a cloth from the cupboard, You wet it and move back to sit next to Ric, you gently press the cloth to his face and start to clean his face. You made a few trips to and fro the bathroom, to clean the cloth and wet it.
When you finished with his face nick and hair, you started to un-button his shirt to remove the rest of the blood. You sighed looking at how much blood he was covered in. You cleaned his chest, stomach and arms, and sat down beside him again.
This time comping his hair with your fingers, you were leaning over him when his breath suddenly picked up and his hand shout up and he quickly flipped you around so he was holding you down.
You let out a scream from the shock, and clawed at his hand. He was in a daze he obviously had no idea what was going on. But one second he was on top of you and the other he was on the ground a few feet from the bed with Damon by your side.
“What the hell man?” Damon yelled at his friend. “One minute you DIE for her and the next you try to kill her.”
Damon turned to you and held you chin to inspect your nick.
“It’s going to leave a ark but nothing serious.” Damon told you softly.
“Thanks.” You whispered to Damon, before looking at Ric. “Can you give us a minute?”
“Are you sure?” Damon asked you concerned.
“Yeah, I’m sure.” Damon left with that but you knew he was keeping an ear out for anything.
“(Y/N) I’m so sorry, I didn’t mean-” You interrupt him by throwing yourself into his arms.
“Don’t scare me like that again.” You told him holding him tight, your body pressed into his. Ric hesitated before wrapping his hands around your waist.
“I’m sorry, but i couldn’t help myself.” He told you, you pulled back just enough to look him in the eye, you moved your hand to hold his face.
“Don’t ever do anything like that again, I don’t want you getting killed because of me.” You told him, and your voice broke as you spoke. “I can’t lose you, Ric I’d die without you.”
“I’m sorry but I can never just stand aside and watch supernatural threaten your life and do nothing.” He said his eyes full of pain of the thought of losing you. “I love you so much (y/n).”
“I love you too Ric.” You suddenly became aware of the closeness of you and Ric, you leaned up (you stood on your toes to reach him, he is so freaking tall) just a bit for Ric to noticed, and he closed the distance between the two of you. Your lips collided and moved together for a soft emotion filled kiss, you slowly moved your hands to his naked chest.
Before things can move a little farther you pulled back breaking the kiss.
“I think we should get you home.” You told him breathless.
“I think we should.”
“You need a shirt first.” You reminded I’m of the missing shirt.
“Here take this.” Damon came in and handed Alaric a shirt. “It’s Stefan’s.”
“Thanks.” Alaric took the shirt and button it up. You three left the room and went down stairs.
“Thank you for taking care of him.” You told Damon by the door and gave him a hug before you and Alaric left. You got in your car and drove to his house. Ric held your right hand in his almost the whole ride.
“Home sweet home.” Ric said once you stepped inside the house. You walked to the kitchen.
“Want something to drink?” You called out.
“Any kind of alcohol.” You chuckled and got a glass of bourbon and two glasses.
You walked to the bed room aria to find Alaric shirtless running through his shirts to find a new one. You sat the glasses down and walked up to him. You lightly ran your hand up and his back and to his shoulder. You felt him stop moving under your touch.
“(Y/n).” Ric breathed out.
“You’re going to be the death of me.” You laughed at the irony.
“I already am.” You said and kissed between his shoulder blades, then up his nick. When Ric had enough of your teasing he turned around a kissed you. This kiss was rough full of hunger and need for each other.
“Ric!” You moan. Ric kissed down to tour nick and started to suck and nip, your moans only grew louder and louder. And one thing lead to another and let’s just say you expressed your love to each other all day long.
