how do u not love him

anonymous asked:

How do you pick your colors? I'm having trouble making nice palettes, you make everything look so soft and pastel

oh jeez

picking colors is rly fun for me so to start off it all depends on what kinda mood/setting u want ur art to be in (certain colors correspond to different moods, like smth sad can be desaturated and dark)

another important thing to note is contrast. i’m gonna use sonic as an example cuz i love him

his blue fur and yellow muzzle are Very different from each other in terms of lighting and color. i use complementary colors a lot. also use colors that are a bit close to each other on the spectrum

u can also reuse colors throughout ur art to give a sense of unity.

u can use paletton to choose an initial color palette and work off of that if u want? i dont use it at all but it seems cool. i learned some of this stuff from gigi dg’s art tutorial (u can search it up i think u can find it somewhere)

Regarding that ask about Will going to Oliver for advice about Beth...Does that mean Oliver views Beth in a slightly grand fatherly way? How does he view his son stepping up as a pseudo parent at such a young age? Does he ever compare it to him and Thea. What is Beth's relationship with Oliver and Felicity like?Do Beth or Will find out about Oliver and Felicity paying for all her hospital bills after the accident?How do they react?I just have such a soft spot for Bethy, u make me love all ur OCs

Thank you! I’m really glad you love Beth! She really wasn’t going to be a character I dealt with much at first - as tends to be common for me, apparently, that changed. 

Oliver is equal parts amazed and proud of Will. He always was, in some ways. His son’s a pretty awesome kid and he grows up to be a compassionate, hard-working man that Oliver respects. 

With Beth… no, Oliver never views her in a grandfatherly way. There’s really no easy way to define the relationships that the Queens have with her. She’s family because she’s Will’s family, but she’s also… not really their family. Especially with Samantha gone because she provided that link to Beth, you know? I think they treat her more like a niece than anything else, if I had to pick a role. That’s easier for Felicity than for Oliver. I think Felicity looks at Beth and sees a little girl who just wants more connections with people in her life. Oliver looks at her and sees Samantha’s daughter and it’s a little unsettling. 

Oliver knows full well that Will was under no obligation to step up with Beth like he does. It’s something that he watches with astonishment and pride (I keep using that word, but it’s really the best one). It would’ve been easy for Will to go the other way, to wallow in his grief and cut ties with his stepfather. He could have easily chosen to be a very transitory figure in Bethany’s life - like his stepsister Macy does - but that’s not Will. It never was. Family is everything to him. He already feels like he failed his mom. He’s not going to fail his baby sister.

I think there’s a natural comparison to be drawn between Will and Beth versus Oliver and Thea. The age difference with Will and Beth is a lot greater, of course, and I doubt that Oliver ever took on any kind of parenting role with Thea, but with the closeness and the age gap, yes… that’s a comparison that could be made. In truth, though, the age difference between Will and Ellie is closer to that between Oliver and Thea and is probably the better comparison. 

Oliver and Felicity never exactly hid that they paid Beth’s hospital bills - David found out right away, of course - but they didn’t tell Will. I think probably David did. I think it didn’t even occur to Will at first (he was so wrapped up in fear and grief and worry and regret), but when it did… when it did, I think he swallowed his pride and went to David with a plan to pull money from his trust fund to pay for whatever Beth needed. When David told him that his dad and stepmom had already paid for it all, I think Will went straight over to his dad’s house and hugged his dad. Oliver wouldn’t have known what was going on right away, not until Will said something like “Thank you. For Bethy.” I suspect that Beth doesn’t find out until she’s maybe a pre-teen. When she does, I’d venture to guess that it helps her feel even more like she’s sort of a part of the Queen family. She adores her dad and Will, but they’re all she’s got without the Queens and she rather desperately wants a family connection with the women in her life. To various degrees, at different times, Felicity, Jules, Ellie and probably Donna all help fill that void. As does Amelia, in a big way.

the best parts of the raven boys (featuring me crying)

- adam and ronan literally dragging each other on moving dollys behind the bmw like what nerds

- “if it had a social security number, ronan had fought with it”

- noah told them like 400 times that he was dead why was this news

- ronan being so extra about picking fights with declan. school? sure. monmouth? hell yea. nino’s parking lot? let’s fuckin go!!!

- the first thing blue ever sees ronan do is run into the light hanging above the booth at nino’s #clumsygay™

- ronan’s number on the nino’s bathroom stall door (honestly what the fuck)

- president cell phone

- gansey describing his friends as “the sulky one” and “the smudgy one”

- take a shot every time blue or adam call gansey condescending

some more thoughts on the sensates, season 2:

  • will: this boy has TOO MUCH heart he cares about everyone so much i cannot believe a str8 white male character can give me so little grief everyone take notes. cheekbone game is also still strong, but with too much time covered in stubble imo
  • sun: SUN FUCKIN BAK i cannot believe how far my soft baby bird kickass diamond of a character has come she’s so GOOD, but she can also break your neck i love her so much. in more important news however she got reunited with her dog. heckin yes 11/10.
  • lito: continues being the absolute Most™ and we all love him for it. ”i’m practicing””for what?””for my future as a homeless, unemployable failure”. i mean what a fuckin Leo- also relatable as all hell. my beautiful proud gay son. what a gem.
  • riley: sweetest bean in the entire universe, most unrealistic part of s2 is that no one would trust her. she loves a dopey police officer from chicago so much and most importantly she really likes boning him. also shout out for her immense knowledge of graffitied hovels, v impressive.
  • capheus: my newest kid hit it out of the park. he doesn’t have a clue how he got here but he’s still the best person i know and if he doesn’t end up as the president of the world by the end of the series then what are we even doing here?????? also hell yeah my boy got some proud of u bud.
  • nomi: what the hell is this radiant angel and how is she making money. i can’t believe she’s responsible for all of the sensates not being in prison, mvp of the whole fucking show. she’s basically r2d2 if it was a hot, genius woman who fuckin OWNS it. 10/10 five stars would watch again.
  • wolfgang: “he doesn’t really talk” except when he does he BREAKS MY HEART. still the most problematic of all my children but i don’t care i just want him and kala to be happy god fuckin damnit. also i can appreciate the commitment to both his Look and his woman. good one dude.
  • kala: the rambliest and also the smartest, god bless her. honey thinks too much about good and bad when it’s so obvious that she’s a Hoe for the bad boys- specifically German bad boys with unresolved anger issues. also shot a gun and it was pretty fuckin hot tbh.

other thoughts on other characters:

  • whispers: hey man FUCK YOU and also FUCK OFF
  • jonas: what is the point of u doesn’t naveen andrews have better things to do honestly.
  • daniela & hernando: sometimes a family is two gay dudes and their drama queen best friend and that is beautiful..
  • amanita: QUEEN of supportive spouses also she loves nomi so much, can relate.
  • diego: i found myself whispering “no diego no” to myself and it made me laugh so there u go.

  • Will: *sticks out his head* Was that enough of a coming out
  • Will: or do we need the sign?
  • Jason: What sign?
  • Will: *simply holds up sign saying "WE'RE DATING"*
