Intimacy Issues of the Zodiac Signs!

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

You’re determined to do things your own way, Aries. That spark of sovereignty within you is strong, and you fear losing it in relationships. Because you can take care of things so well on your own, you may shy away from letting others know how much you need them. Practicing the art of give-and-take is the key to maintaining your independence and also letting others in deeply. Also, take care you don’t demand too much, too soon.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

You know once you make a commitment, Taurus, it’s for good. That’s why you take your time choosing the right person. Once locked in, however, you want things to stay the same forever and stubbornly resist change. Fear of leaving your comfortable rut is your single greatest barrier to intimacy – a condition that thrives on constant growth. You need to trust that change is good, and embrace it with open arms before love can flourish.

anonymous asked:

do you take credit for the su homestuck crossover? heard it was someone elses au and youre taking credit for it, nothing personal just wanted to know and maybe clear thing up for other people too. your art is very nice

these aus don’t belong to anybody, literally anyone can make a crossover/au of any series in existence the can think of, or any topic like vampires, demons, mermaids, animals etc, ANYONE can make an au about it because nobody owns these topics

the only thing whoever makes the au “owns” are the specific headcanons for it and the eventual backstories/plotline

(on a side note I don’t think I have even seen the au people are referring to in particular so really no way I could have “imitated” it purposely)

I hit 1000 followers yesterday and I have been trying to write the post to thank you all but I can’t seem to find the right words.

I love this ship so much, I love the canon and fanon and crack and AUs and I love how many different takes people have on their love for each other. I love Yana’s art and her brilliant story crafting skills. I love all of the other shippers here and all the fun interaction we have. I love every ask I get and ever post I am tagged in. That sort of thing makes my day.

This blog is a joy to run and all of you are so wonderful. Thank you for your support.

Here is a little preview of my next sebaciel artwork, hopeful something to look forward to.

Hi, I'm the same anon from before ^^ I'd really appreciate it if you made a tutorial about shading, since you're amazing at it owo

Since I got an anon once asking me about coloring in general I’ll talk about my whole process, since it can get a bit messy!

HOW NURY DOES ART: disclaimer, I am no professional lmao. but really, I’m still learning myself so take this with a grain of salt.

It’s pretty long, so under the cut!

I think starting a new piece of art is the most exhilarating/ terrifying thing an artist can do.  The first mark you put down will probably be wrong, as well as most of the marks after it.  The success of the piece depends on your ability to take the marks that are the least wrong and make them correct.  And that takes so much courage.  To look at your work, see what is wrong, and instead of giving up in frustration you figure out how to fix it.  Then you look at your final piece and you have to be ok with it not being perfect, because there are mistakes in it that you didn’t know how to fix this time around.  But it’s ok because this piece is stronger than the ones you made last week, last month, last year.  And the more pieces you make the more mistakes you figure out how to fix.  

anonymous asked:

Hi Dayna! As a huge fan and a fellow artist, I was wondering, how long have you been drawing?

hey fellow art anon! i’ve been drawing for funsies pretty much since i can remember, and started really taking it seriously when i was eleven or twelve.

i use the word ‘seriously’ very loosely.

aph-timbuktu asked:

Hi, I absolutely love your art style, especially the way you mix a more styleized way of drawing people with technical backgrounds. If you don't mind me asking, how do you format comics?

Ahhh thank you so much! And sorry for taking so long to respond. ^^ As far as styles go, yeah i’m pretty comfortable with stylizing people and figures, but since I’m not as great with coming up with backgrounds, i usually rely heavily on reference, hence the detailed/technical kinds of environments.

As for formatting comics, Holey moley my handwriting is awful, but hopefully you can get the gist of it! I am no expert on comics, but this is what I have learned so far:

(also good books about comic formatting! Making Comics by Scott McCloud is a classic, Drawing Words and Writing Pictures by Jessica Abel and Matt Madden, and uhhh yeah just read a lot of comics and see what you like and what works for you :D Obviously I’m more drawn to the big-panel styles of manga, but there are other formats out there. 

Good luck arting!

Yoooo!~ Touhoukid here, and I finally after long time of procrastination and drawing I finally finished, scanned, and posted my friend art set #1. This is where I take all my friends and their sonas and draw them in my anime style. And it certainly pays to have gotten this much practice to be able to draw them. I just can’t thank my friends enough for this opportunity. I love you guys!! ;w;
P.s. I know travs is a pony and flipgang changed her sona this was just finished a long while now and I asked what travs would want to be drawn as, so frankly the results are nice to me =w=.

Time to reopen commissions! 

It took me a bit to churn this out, due to trying to figure out how to price my art. I think my prices are fair enough, considering how much time each type takes. Here’s a little more detail on those.

Sketches: 5$ base, can add some messy color for 2$, and to add more characters it’s an extra 3$ each. 

Lineart: 15$ base. Extra characters are 10$ each.

Flat color: 25$ base. Extra characters are 15$ each.

Full color: 35$ base. Extra characters are 25$ each.

Backgrounds I will only do on full color pics, and that would be an extra 10$.

Up above I only have a few basic examples I dug out of my files, if you want more examples of my art please check out either my deviantArt or my Art tag.

Now I gotta have some rules I suppose. 

  • I would prefer not to do HUGE group photos, maybe 5 characters per pic as a limit? 
  • I can try nsfw, but it will be…bad. And those I will not post publicly. (I promise you there are a lot better porn artists to commission than me)
  • If you do not want your commission posted publicly, let me know first!
  • I can draw furries, animals, gore, etc. I don’t really have too many limits. I’d really reaallly prefer not to draw any extreme fetish stuff, or offensive or hurtful imagery though. (Nazi stuff, etc.)
  • I do have the right to turn down any commission if I choose.
  • If you have any more questions, send them to my askbox or email me!

I take payment before I start, and I will send progress pics if you’d like on anything above a sketch. Please don’t try to argue with me about my prices or anything. If you don’t like it, there are plenty others to commission. I’m not here for that. Also ! Please be patient, a commission may take a couple weeks to finish depending on the complexity or how much drawing time I actually have between my job and my classes.

If you are interested in commissioning me, please send me an (off anon) ask or, more preferably, an email at Frostleaf412@gmail.com . Asks can get lost sometimes, if I don’t respond I probably haven’t seen it. Please tell me what you want and what kind of drawing you’d like, and PLEASE! PLEASE! HAVE REFERENCES ON OCS! If all you have is a description, I can try but having images is so much easier. I use paypal for payment!

ONE MORE THING:

Apparently there is interest in me taking LIVE COMMISSIONS, as in during a livestream. I’ve seen it done and if that really is something people would like, I would love to do commission streams. Prices would be a bit lower there, and pics probably a little different than what I have here. I’ll figure that out, but only if there’s enough interest for me to actually. Do it.


Thank you for reading, sorry this turned out so long! 

Well this is me trying to take a selfie (a show of my frustration), I’m Melina, you can call me Mel, Meli, Melo… 19, Argentina. English is not my mother language, so I’m not a fluent speaker, but I can read or hear almost anything (except when peej talks really really fast xP). I’m in college, studying Theatre, or Performing Arts -I don’t know how to say this in english oh crap- the thing is I want to be an actress. I’m almost 24/7 with my headphones on, I’m adicted to Oasis, Noel Gallagher, Muse, Arctic Monkeys and less adicted to other artists such as Lindsey Stirling, Kevin Johansen, Skrillex… I used to read (a lot) but since I got an android phone I lost the habit and I read much less (we can discuss authors and books later) mainly because of Youtube. I watch a lot of youtubers but my favorite is Pj of course; I came across one of his videos in the summer and since then I love him, his films, his music. He is an amazing artist and he deserves waaaaay more recognition. This post is too long, I’ll end it here, see you in the network! :D

avenger64 asked:

Thanks hunni it really helps i just have one more question could you give tips on becoming an artist?? Xxxxx

Well, what I do:

- Find art that inspires you, and when your motivation goes down, go back to looking at your inspiration

- Practice drawing everyday! It sounds dumb but seriously that’s what most artists do! Whether it’s just a small doodle on your notebook in class or a serious sketch that you’re motivated to do for hours on end.

- Use references! They’re there for a reason, and find some that you know will benefit you

- Art blocks happen, and it’s okay! It may take a day or even weeks for it to come back but often when it does, you’ll want to draw for days, and it’s amazing how much inspiration and motivation can flow out just like that. 

- If you’re in the middle of something but you have the urge to draw, just draw! At least enough for you to pause that urge and move on with what you’re doing.

- I often buy art books because there are artists out there that I don’t know but have such amazing art, plus it can be quite eye-straining to stare at the computer for hours, gotta give your eyes a break!

- And lastly, experiment. If whatever new you try doesn’t turn out the way you wanted, it doesn’t matter, not everyone has to see it. Scrap it and try it again if you’re dedicated to improving on it. Otherwise, try something new! There’s such a wide variety of what you can do with art; painting, sketching, editing, metal, fabric, string, whatever is around you you can turn it into art when that spark of inspiration hits you!


I hope they help!
