how do i increase the speed

rabwatsup  asked:

I Fell in love with your Art:3 Can you tell me how long do you recommend sketching to increase the speed of your drawing! I'm slow and I want to increase my speed! Thanx. Also if you want to hear about what I think of your art well here it is. I love how unique it is. It has an intriguing vibe to it. Also I get Lemony Snickets feels from it which I love!

Thank you so much! <3 I’m still working on the same thing haha, but so far I think the best strategy is to set yourself a time limit and start sacrificing quality to just fit into it. Eventually your accuracy will improve and the quality will catch up to the speed! I mostly use this strategy for inking though, but works on all steps of the process. For sketching specifically the best way to increase speed is to seriously embrace the “less is more” strategy - you gotta try and put down as little lines as you can, and sometimes that will feel like you’re slowing down because you’ll pause to think a little more, but in the end it creates a better sketch and paradoxically increases speed. Slow is smooth - smooth is fast xD
Thank you for the kind words!! I hope this helps :)

Some 3x12 Thoughts

+ Very HR-lite episode, but that might be expected following 3x11′s HR-centric-ness (Cisco also had a relatively quiet ep) and 3x13-14′s Tomstravaganza.

+ So nice to see that everyone is being friendly to HR for a change (IRIS TOUCHED HIM).

+ I’d have liked to see the “Cisco and HR come up with the crucial idea” scene, because I assume it was HR saying “if only we could vibe Flashpoint” and Cisco being all “okay that’s imposs- well, lemme try.”

+ They shouldn’t knock HR’s “verbal encouragement” technique. It wasn’t as if Eo actually showed Barry how to do things. But I am sad no one told Wally to feel the lightning in his pants.

+ Wally = actually the cutest. His cuteness increases exponentially, along with his speed.

+ So glad they told Joe about Iris’ future death… but it only makes it incredibly stupid they didn’t tell him in the first place. How many scenes do we really need that play out pretty much the same emotional beats?

+ Joe getting serious with Cecile and meeting her daughter doesn’t bode well… Anyone who’s happy has to have it torn away from them immediately.

+ Decomposing Dude got his powers from Alchemy. Julian hasn’t been Alchemy for months. What was he doing all this time?

+ Clearly the next step is for Team Flash to utterly destroy Luigi’s so it can’t reopen in May. Or alternatively fix it up really quickly so it reopens in March instead.

+ Can we just appreciate Olga, who despite not speaking much English is apparently running the STAR Labs Museum singlehandedly? Unless that’s where HR disappeared to for the middle section of the episode. Or it’s only open on weekends. Or on the full moon.

+ What were HR and Cisco eating in the “Wally vs wall” scene?

+ Sad that McSnurtle didn’t hurl himself into action to protect Iris.

+ The number of “I’ll go talk to him/her” scenes is reaching critical. Can they just let someone go and work it out for themselves for once? Or stop storming off?

+ Since when is Julian a surgeon or pathologist? The show is so bad at “I have a science-related degree, ergo I can do anything related to science.” I was so happy in 2x08 when Harry was like “I’m a tech genius, not a medical one, Caitlin halp!”

+ The Julian-Caitlin discussion could have actually resolved what the deal is with Caitlin’s split personality… But it didn’t.

+ Can we please resolve what happened with Julian’s girlfriend? Personally I’m hoping Julian/Caitlin will just wind up as friendship, but still.


How i almost blinded someone with a beyblade....

 So I grew up in toronto watching beyblade when it first started airing and it was immediately popular. I remember the beyblade was one of those early 2000s toys that was somewhat dangerous. At least in the beginning beyblades were made with real metal weight disks and heavy plastics that could do some damage and believe me they did (i’ll explain in a bit). Beyblade was very popular in my neighbourhood and every kid pretty one had their favourite bit beast from the show. Recess’s were a time for battles and trading different parts to build up your beyblade. Remember the whole they could actually be pretty dangerous? Yeah well I actually learned early on how tv shows (especially animes) could influence kids to do things that probably weren’t safe… so remember how in the first episode tyson attaches two rip cords together to increase dragoon’s speed? Well I ended up doing the same thing and went to test it out in a parking lot that had a concave dip in it, unfortunately a friend of mine was also there to see the demonstration. And well the whole speed increasing thing totally worked….a little too well. The beyblade ended up ricocheting out of the concave dip and shot right out towards my friend’s face. Long story short I ended up giving her a permanent scar under her left eye (sorry catherine). Needless to say I wasn’t allowed to play with beyblades since that day. Funny enough my friends recently bought me one for xmas and cheap plastics aside it did give me a great sense of nostalgia and reminded me how big beyblade was in my childhood.( p.s my original mad max beyblade was a galzzly)

Introducing Cardio

I jogged 10 minutes the day before yesterday, twice yesterday, and once today. I don’t run every week so often I go back to the basics, I have a lot of results from it. 

walk and increases your speed making sure to breathe through your nose. Once your breathing is controlled begin jogging.

( I focus more on breathing technique and posture than time and distance. My goal is to get into the runners high, stay there for a little bit and then do one to how ever many sprints I am feeling like. Usually just one but more for times I am trying to boost my metabolism. )

You know your body better than anyone do not push yourself to injury, good luck with your weightloss and above all else just try to be a better you even if you don’t do the cardio!

hi ally! i want to start working out as I spend all day sitting because of uni, so I'm thinking of starting to go for swims at my local community pool. I know swimming is supposed to be a wonderful workout. Do you swim? Should I be doing timed laps? Unsure of how long I should be swimming for to get a proper workout haha. Thank you in advance for responding xxx

Swimming is an awesome workout! It engages your entire body :) You could try to increase the amount of laps you’re able to do, by adding a couple more on each time. Or if you’d prefer to focus on speed, timing works too!

H-Hiya! Sorry to bother but may I ask, when your dragon AU's finished, is there going to be a paperback version to purchase? I'm really enjoying it so far and I can't wait to read more! Thanks! ;)

Hii! =3 I actually had considered before to sell printed versions of the comic if people would be interested, so I’m super happy to hear you are! ;w; But if I’m going to do it, there is an issue with how I’m planning to write/draw the comic..

 Since I’m writing separate stories which will all build up to one big story, it’s going to be difficult to have all of them together. I’m not even sure how long it will take me to draw all the stories in the end owo; For the first one, my current estimation is that it will be finished somewhere early summer (my drawing speed might increase though)… Another problem is that the stories following this one will probably be shorter.

Right now I think making multiple “volumes” (combining shorter stories so the amount of pages will be similar) would be the best solution to this, but I’ll probably look into it more once I finish the first comic =3

Thank you for being interested!! ;;w;; It makes me super happy!

Fury Road and Laughing Gas

okay guys I prompted my spouse (a chemist) again! You’ll find below some more thoughts on the resources and industry of the Citadel, Gas Town and the Bullet Farm. I’m tagging a few of you guys since you asked questions that will be answered below: rockatanskyandfriends, polecat-flyer, icarus-suraki. Also tagging bonehandledknife since I remember you were interested in the Citadel’s food production.


I want to talk a little bit about nitrous oxide (NOS, laughing gas, nitro). We all know in the movie they are using NOS in their cars in nitrous gas engines to get a quick boost of speed. Since using it dramatically increases the pressure in the engine, it shouldn’t be uncommon, if the engine just kind of explodes when using nitro because I don’t think they can afford to switch and repair their cylinders all the time.

Ok, but the interesting part is, what you can do with NOS and how you get it. We are already using it in our cars, but we also can use it because of its “medical” effects. So last time I already had some thoughts about the Valhalla make-up spray. So it seems they can fill the bottles on their own, because if they can use nitrous gas engines, they are able to fill high pressure tanks. And they fill it with the chrome color spray (probably aluminum particles), a volatile liquid (used to transport the particles, probably some hydrocarbons, which they can get out of the gas production), and NOS because it can be used as propellant. With these three compounds, the spray works and since it is sprayed right in the mouth, a load of it is inhaled.

It was used as narcotic back in the past and is also used as drug. The effects are described as followed: Loss of sense of time, influences perception (optic, acoustic), reduced pain, relaxation and euphoria.

The effects appear a few seconds after consumption and are lasting from 30 seconds up to about 4 minutes. Well if this isn’t exactly what we want for our little warboys! (It also kind of freezes the skin and damages it, so I thought Nux scarred lips are because he tried to get to Valhalla a few times and used the spray too often. But the scars are to even and also only the lips are scarred so I now go with the ritual scar thesis ^^)

The problem is, we need a lot of it, especially it we want to use it in nitrous gas engines. If we take our resources out of a secret mall, I think they would run out of it pretty fast, (I’m not even sure if you can buy big amounts of NOS in a mall) so they must produce it by themselves. That’s where the interesting part begins.

You can get NOS by heating ammonium nitrate. The funny thing is: piss on ammonium nitrate and you have a very good and simple fertilizer, so the Citadel also would like to have a lot of it. Also you can use ammonium nitrate to produce explosives. Ok so how do we get ammonium nitrate? For this we just need ammonia and nitric acid.

Nitric acid can be produced in high temperatures if you for example burn fuel and kind of dissolve the forming nitrogen oxide in water. Ammonia can be found in the mall, where it was sold as cleaning agent. But it’s also a side product of the distillation of coal, which produces hydrogen and methane. This was the main procedure in the 19th century.

So that’s how they get and fill their sprays. Because they can fabricate bullets, we know that they can melt iron, so they have a blast furnace and high enough temperatures. Also they must have some kind of mining, because they need iron ore and coal. Also they need coal and sulfur (which can be extracted from ores) to produce gunpowder. With this it should be no problem to create NOS.
Everything is fine and adds up pretty nice, but the big question still is: where do they get their coal and ore from? There must be a mining place somewhere near the three cities. Otherwise they should run out of resources really fast.


The Rhinoceros poketto-monsta! This guy is the pre-evolution of the original monster designed for “Capsule Monsters”. The Concept that would one day become Pokemon. But more on that later.

I loved the addition of getting to ride Rhyhorn in the X/Y games. I really wish that it was less gimmicky though. Like give a reason and why as to why you can do it. For example. You’re in a swamp, without a Pokemon that you can ride your speed cuts to a ¼ and your encounter rate skyrockets. With a large Pokemon that you can ride to get through the swamp, your speed is unchanged and perhaps your encounter rate is less. Perhaps riding in different environments could increase/decrease your encounter rate. I mean, come on! Has Nintendo not noticed how popular “mounts” are in MMO’s?
