can you do a tutorial about how to age characters one day ? like I wanna draw some characters but sometimes they are 50+ and I have no clue how to draw them x) anyway I love your blog and love from france ! ^^
This is actually another tutorial idea I’ve gotten before and need to tackle! Keep an eye out, I have a few exercises that really help!
do you guys ever think about how yuri plisetsky, at just age fifteen, has apparently been supporting his family through his figure skating via government grants which means not only does he have to regularly compete, but he always has to do well and to consistently perform, so he’s probably never allowed to have an off performance or it means less money, less support, less opportunities, and when victor nikiforov himself, five time world champion, offers to choreograph a program for him, yuri jumps at the chance because yes, think of how much he could get if he won his very first grand prix series off of victor’s choreography – think of his ailing grandfather whom he loves so much, an absentee mother – figure skating is everything to yuri, it’s the only thing he thinks he has to offer, it’s the thing he relies on the most for emotional and financial support, this is the opportunity of a lifetime. so he throws everything onto the ice, wins the junior championship just as victor said, and now he’s about to make his pro senior debut and he’s gonna get victor to make good on his promise and–
victor just… disappears. flies across the world, completely forgets he ever promised yuri anything, turns around and blatantly uses yuri while making it clear that beyond a week’s worth of coaching him on a program, victor has no intentions of giving yuri anything bc he’s so wrapped up in yuuri
and yuri feels – abandoned, betrayed, hurt; left behind again like he always is, left waiting like he always is, used as a means to an end; is it any wonder he’s pissed off? but then this beautiful, brilliant boy takes a program he only spent a week learning from its choreographer – he takes that program, refines it, improves it and breaks victor’s world record with it, slaps victor in the face with it by winning over yuuri and telling him, victor nikiforov is dead, victor isn’t everything yuri had thought he would be and it doesn’t matter bc yuri will make himself, define himself, choose things for himself now.
do you ever think about this bc i do and it hurts me but i love this boy so much, he deserves everything
It’s been the longest month of her life and she has a million
things on the tip of her tongue she’s dying to say and confess, but not whilst
everyone is around. And not whilst Dan has the biggest smile on his lips as he
looks down at his phone a couple of minutes later.
“Who are you texting, Howell? We’re all right here!” someone
jokes, and Dan laughs and holds up his hands in surrender.
“Just Phil” he replies, the smile never once faltering.
I needed to do something solely for myself outside of the anxiety-fueled mess that leads up to Pratt’s survey (it’s a show/presentation). My body is decomposing alive (excessive overwork), but this was very, very calming. Drawing people sleeping is nice! See y’all on the other side, after May 4.
