steps to moving on:
step 1: stop telling people about them. i know you want to tell the world how they broke your entire being. your reason for existing and now you have to exist without them, but stop telling people. it helps i promise. it helps you forget. and though you don’t want to forget. you have to. you’re getting there. keep your head up.
step 2: cut ties off, talk to them less. don’t check their social media everyday. just try to distance yourself. i know you’ll miss them. but it will get easier as time goes on.
step 3: don’t think they are coming back, they most likely aren’t, even if they say they are. don’t let them rule over you when in your heart you know they don’t even want you. you have to accept that they are not coming back. im sorry. this is one of the hardest steps.
step 4: don’t tell them things. i know when something happens they are the first person you wanna tell it to. i know when you’re breaking you wanna call them and hear them say it’s okay, but don’t. you can do this on your own.
step 5: if they tell you they miss you, DON’T SAY YOU MISS THEM. let them miss you. let them see what they lost.
step 6: stop arguing w them, i know it gives you a chance to talk to them and that’s all you want but stop. nothing you can say will bring them back. if they want to come back, they will.
step 7: don’t let them call you baby or babe. the false hope will hurt so much in the end. be strong. say no. i get it if your heart leaped out of your chest when they said it, but your hearts gonna crush again if you believe they love you and much as you love them. honey, if they loved you. they would be with you, case closed.
step 8: hang with friends. getting out and being productive will put your mind off the fact that they aren’t there anymore. & if your friends are busy, take a you day or week or as long as you need. get some snacks, turn on your old favorite movie you haven’t seen in forever, turn off your phone, and enjoy the present.
step 9: get rid of it, you know what im talking about. the stuff that reminds you of them. the stuff you cry over or lock away hidden. throw it away, burn it, rip it to shreds if you can. just let it go. let the memory of them go, sweetie.
step 10: make yourself your main priority, look in the mirror each morning and tell yourself “it’s their loss, im amazing.” because you are. learn from their absence. learn how strong you are for getting through this.
Okay, so I've been trying for an hour now and I'm starting to get annoyed. Tell me, oh wise Atomi-Cat, how do we draw faces from the side? -Karmen
I was hoping to find a tutorial that goes in depth a bit better, since I don’t feel like I’m the best at explaining stuff like this. Can’t seem any that I was looking for, so I’ll do my best.
First part is the general proportions. The cranial mass (the circle part of the head), takes up about 2/3ds of the head, while the jaw only takes up 1/3. When laying down your guides, first start with a “t”. this will help you lay down where the brow line should be on the face. Next is the lay down the rest of the guides, starting with the base of the base of the nose and hairline. Understanding where the base of the nose is will make is easier to figure out where the mouth and top of the chin need to be, as well as the right position for the eyes. The hairline tends to be about halfway between the top of the head and the brow line, while the base of the nose is either on or a little above the base of the circle. For the ears, the top of the ears tend to be on the same level as the eyes, while the bottom of the ears are on the same level as the base of the nose. Both the lips and the chin usually don’t extend past the tip of the nose.
. Something that I was taught in college was to understand that anatomy always follows a pattern, and for the face, it’s no different. Both the body and facial structure sort of mimic this zigzaggy motion, as if someone was stacking a bunch of blocks on the edges of one another, if that makes any sense. At least when designing more realistic-looking faces, it might help to keep that in mind.
