i actually put effort into this one

thepileofcats  asked:

Hi Nadia remember that face tutorial you made days (or weeks) ago? It was on how to draw faces, with otabek as the model. I just wanted to thank you because so far that has been the only tutorial that has helped me with drawing. I'm still a beginner and haven't drawn much at all, but my only successful attempts at drawing faces were made by following your tutorial. Thanks again, love you❤❤

OH MY GOSH! That’s so good to hear!! I hope you’re making progress! (•̀ᴗ•́)و ̑̑

But I think it was obvious that I didn’t put very much effort in that “””tutorial”””… I didn’t really think anyone would want to use my tutorial for,,, you know, actual drawing ahah. Had I known, I would’ve made a better, not-so-half-assed one!

Do you want me to?? I could try! I’ll even try making a tutorial with more angles for the faces if you want ;o; I know i suck at explaining and teaching, but if you guys really want a proper tutorial from me i will sure as heck try my best!



*rubs hands* okay 4 pm some should be online to see this m hm

let’s get this said

for an undefined period of time, i won’t be answering asksor drawing anything for this blog. my muse will be here but probably stop existing in some way

so undefined hiatus

PS: pssst i’m starting a new askblog too, which will be a decent one which i put actual effort in for once! stay tuned

I don't know why Cal is getting so much praise? He has done fuck all except live the high life for 2 years off Louis & use his position to fuck fans. Now that he's trying to build up his following to be a SM influencer, he makes a few SM posts that exploit his connection to his famous friend & he's a hero? It's just self-interest. People have such low standards. I am not normally even a pearl-clutcher, but I can spot a leech. L may like him fine, but he already showed who he was.

No one’s praising him or calling him a god. People are just appreciating that he’s being a good friend to Louis. It’s not just for himself, you can see he’s actually putting effort into this (like the video). No one here likes him, but it doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate Louis having a good friend by his side that’s doing a better job for his solo career than his own manager is (and yes, he travels free and lives the high life but that’s Louis problem and not ours since he’s the one paying and we can’t do anything about that)


tag yourself i’m shal we skat

i missed doing tag yourself memes (and putting too much effort into them) i was waiting for the past few weeks for enough skaters to show up so i could make one. i’ll add otabek once he actually shows up


I had to draw the replies I got for this post, ‘cause they were just too good


A friend told me she was going to LA, but not to see comedy or go hiking or anything particularly fun. She’s helping a friend move.

Which led to us joking about how LA is the city of moving, and how she hopes LA lives up to all the moving hype. So then I opened up Photoshop and made a bunch of quick, shitty fake promotional images for Los Angeles as a city where people are always moving.

Making hyper-specific goofs for one person feels great, because when you send something like this, I’m sure part of them is thinking, “No way he actually put effort into this throwaway joke.”

But that very process has led to some of my favorite goofs! I rewrote a Duolingo email because I overheard two friends talking about how they woke up to that guilt-trippy email from Duolingo. I made that joke thinking about how I wanted those two specific people to laugh and not much else, and I think that one tweet has been passed around on the internet enough to where it’s been seen over a million times now.

I think my point is, making something is more fun if you think of it as a gift more than a piece of work.

e/R AU fics I want to see

- (optionally modern) Fiddler on the Roof AU (Where Courf, R, and Jehan are siblings feat. Courferre as Tzeitel and Motel, Enjoltaire as Hodel and Perchik, and Jehanparnasse as Chava and Fyedka. Kinda feeling Bahorel and Feuilly as Tevye and Golde respectively cuz it would be hilarious tbh?) 

- Blades of Glory AU feat. Grantaire as Chaz Michael Micheals and Enjolras as Jimmy MacElroy (just because this would be fucking hilarious tbh)

- The Holiday (French Enj is heartbroken after all his causes seem to be failing and Indian-American Combeferre just needs a fucking break so they house swap for Christmas holidays. Ferre meets charismatic Courf (Enjolras’ best friend) and Enj meets ex-politician Valjean who encourages him not to give up on the Cause and composer R who seems pretty depressed but is SO INTERESTING) 

- Bride and Prejudice AU. I know there are Pride and Prejudice AU’s but I want the Bollywood one as an AU. It would be awesome! (Indian siblings Ferre, Enj, Joly and Jehan in age order. Courf as Balraj, Grantaire as Darcy, Parnasse as Whickham. Cosette as Chandra,  Marius as Mr. Kholi. This would just be another funny one tbh) 

- St. Trinians AU? Some kind of school full of problem children. Les Amis would do well there I think. And R would love the whole art theft thing ;) (Feat. Enjolras or Marius (or both) as privileged rich kid who doesn’t want to be left at a school full of maniacs, but rethinks their ideas and becomes wild. R constantly trying to see what Enj is made of and getting him to loosen up through frustrating him. Also feat. Posh totty Courf because YES!) 

- It’s a Wonderful Life AU. Has this been done? idk. Anyway, another Xmas one. This would feature R as the one who never got what he wanted out of life. (He wanted so much but never got it and didn’t think anyone cared about him bla bla you know how it goes. In the world he was never born in, Enj never fought as hard for his causes and never got anywhere, and the city lost a lot of its culture)

- Mean Girls (cuz who doesn’t love Mean Girls?) The Triumvirate as the Plastics of course cuz they’re exclusive and unattainable without meaning to be (Enj is unapproachable and Courf and Ferre are too busy pining after each other once Courf gets over Marius) Others are the artsy hipster group. R does a political piece of art and Enj tries to rope him into their group. The group grows. “You can’t date Montparnasse, Jehan. He objectified Enjolras!” “You can’t date Feuilly, Bahorel, Enj had a massive crush on him!” Principal Javert of course. I feel like it could be funny too ;P

- Troll AU as done by Amanda Hocking. Enjolras is a Skojare Markis and Grantaire is the Kanin tracker employed to get his trust cuz he’s the best, although retired now, and ENJOLRAS WON’T TRUST ANYONE WHO TRIES TO BRING HIM BACK WTF ENJ

- Enjolras and Grantaire who always see each other at the same small cinema but always go to see vastly different movies until one day they go to the same movie and argue about it in low whispers the whole time and Enj gets so frustrated he leaves and then R sees him again the next week at the movies. Feuilly who works at the cinema on weekends sees all this and invites Grantaire to an ABC meeting. And angst and UST ensues of course

- Rule 63 ballet school AU where there’s vicious competition and lots of angst. Loosely based off ‘Tiny Pretty Things’ but less cruel, more sex, and gayer. Much gayer. 

- An epic 7th year Hogwarts AU feat. werewolf Feuilly, a prank war between Les Amis and Patron Minette, all the ships, and lots of fun times. 

- And finally, a Titanic AU. Because it would break my fucking heart cuz I’m a huge sap. 


Rowan and Thorne are currently what floats my boat lol

09.01.17 🌱 final review session before what will hopefully be my last ochem test! i feel like this year of ochem 1 and 2 has been like being in one of those intense love-hate relationships, but this semester i liked it much better! (maybe because i finally put in enough effort to actually understand it? maybe because it relates to my cosmetic chemistry goal?)

i actually put effort into this oh lord 

I hadnt seen a cage skirt code, i own one irl and i love it, SO!  i wanted to try and make one for my lil mayor!! and for all of you baes too 
if tumblr happens to mess up my image size, here’s a fuller sized image of it ! I hope you guys like it!! ꒰˘̩̩̩⌣˘̩̩̩๑꒱♡



Thanks for tuning in for today’s episode of ‘this started as a joke but I ended up putting real effort into it and even downloaded the One Direction logo font’

If there was a Gossip Girl at Hogwarts

courtesy of a 10/10 great conversation and team effort with @drvcopotter asdjfhsjfs okay.

-The Hogwarts gg is Ron Weasley himself obviously because he is Harry’s bff and therefore close to everything noteworthy that goes on around the school

-Also he’s really similar to Dan 

-Every time there’s a new blast he’s so surprised like ????? Who???? Me??????? Did I write that????? Nooo

-He puts fake stories about Harry in there all the time just to fuck with him

-At one point he makes up a story about Harry and Draco having a secret steamy affair as a total joke without knowing that was actually what was happening

-Harry barges into their dorms and is freaking out like “HOW DID THEY FIND THAT OUT WE WERE SO CAREFUL I DON’T UNDERSTAND”

-And Ron is just like :) shit :)

-Hermione and Ron are like wait is it actually true and Harry’s like uhhhh 

-Ron is genuinely horrified (both at himself and at the situation as a whole)

-But Harry doesn’t know Ron is gg so he obviously trusts him enough to open up about his relationship with Draco after everyone finds out about it so Ron has the j u i c i e s t   s h i t 

-Draco and Harry become such a huge topic that Ron devotes an entire column to their relationship and they unintentionally become like this power couple (it’s Ron’s weird way of making up for outing them to the whole school)

-Ron is trying so hard not to share anything too obvious because Harry told him but Harry’s still like “HOW DID IT GET OUT THAT DRACO AND I USE THE ROOM OF REQUIREMENT I LITERALLY ONLY TOLD YOU AND HERMIONE”

-Everyone starts snapping pictures of them and following them everywhere and they get 0 privacy 

-But it adds that essential danger and excitement level to Draco and Harry’s relationship so they have to try extra hard not to get caught

-Which means Draco will try his best to get Harry riled up at the most inconvenient times and is all in all even more of a lil shit than usual

-Harry is constantly on edge bc he never knows when Draco is gonna pull him into an empty classroom between classes or yank him into the potions storeroom at the worst time possible

-(He secretly loves it tho like come on danger is hot as fuck)

-Draco is sooo cool and collected when Harry is freaking out though like 

-”Oh my god Draco let me go someone is gonna see”

-”Well then you better make it good so we can get out of here quick, Potter,”

-Harry gets so flustered but he loves Draco so much so he just puts all his worries to the side and forgets and they’re just panting and disheveled and safhsdfj

-And then reality comes crashing down and hes like !!! shit we gotta go

-”Harry pls chill and let me catch my breath I literally just came dfjhsfsh”

-Anyways, Ron finally tells Harry he was gg like years later after they’re all married and out of school

-He doesn’t even know what to think and doesn’t believe him for the longest time

-Ron gets a very serious but secretly amused scolding from Hermione once they all concede he is telling the truth

-(Also George tells him that Fred would be proud)

-Eventually, Harry just has to forgive him bc he and Draco might not be together currently if it wasn’t for Ron god bless


Okay, I don’t understand why so many people are worried about this preview scene. I get that Yuuri saying “let’s end this” has people assuming that the two will break up, but I never once saw that happening. I doubt the creators of this show put so much effort up to this point just to end it like this.

Yuuri wouldn’t buy an $800 ring for Victor only a day or two before just to say they’re breaking up. And he wouldn’t accept one from Victor back so easily if he had even the slightest thought of breaking up; his anxiety wouldn’t of allowed himself to.

But one of the things that convinces me the most is how we see Yuuri actually SMILING right before he said “let’s end this”. I highly doubt, with the amount of self-doubt the poor boy suffers from, that he’d be smiling if he was about to break up with Victor.
And he’s not only smiling, but he seems self assured of something. Where have we seen Yuuri also be self assured, as if he’d come to a big conclusion? When he concluded that he was going to retire from professional figure skating. If anything, I think that’s what Yuuri is going to explain to Victor. That he’s going to end his figure skating career, that he wants to end this coach/pupil relationship that is almost too heavily centred on skating. That they’ll finally meet on equal ground, even if it wasn’t Yuuri’s originally intentions of that ground being the ice.

It’s not only all this, but it’s like some of you completly missed out on the following bits of the preview. You can see Victor and Yuuri talking something out, in a serious manner. And there’s the line “I’m going to show them Victor and I’s love laid bare”. Just like all other problems that have arisen during the show, it will resolve itself.

So please, have a bit more faith in this show and it’s creators, in the same way Yuuri asks Victor to have faith in him. Just stand by the show and support it. I’m pretty sure most of you have watched shows like this before, where they leave an episode on a cliffhanger. It’s just the show’s way of keeping people interested, to make sure we all keep watching. This anime isn’t just important to us fans; is it’s important to the LGBTQ+ community, it’s important to the figure skating community, it’s important to the creators of YoI, it’s important to the voice actors of YoI.
So once again, just have a bit more faith instead of jumping to the conclusion that this world Kubo-sensei created will let us down in the very last episode. She said herself that she wants to protect this world, and instead of dragging it down by jumping to conclusions we should protect it with her.

Thank you and dear God I needed to get this rant off my chest.

Okay but WHY did Rory pick that particular moment to tell her mom she was pregnant? Like, she and Luke had just gotten married and then later that day they were gonna get married again with a huge party and you’d think Rory would be able to hold onto her news at least until that was all well and done?

It just seems really inconsiderate to dump that information onto her mom right before she has to get into her wedding dress and schmooze with the whole town. Like she couldn’t have let her mom just have one happy day to be self-indulgent and not worry that her daughter is single and pregnant, most likely by a guy who lives in London and is engaged to someone else?

If Amy really wanted those to be the last four words, you’d think she’d have put every effort into getting the cast together and actually showing the second wedding, after which Rory could have told Lorelai I guess, because at least that makes an iota of sense.
