six movies i’ll always watch

tagged by @sylwrites​ and @dawn-to-dusk-already​ 🙆

  1. the princess diaries honest to blog i think this is still my favorite movie?? i mean, criminally different from the books, but on it’s own the perfect 2000s movie. it checks all my boxes of being set on my turf so i get to joyfully yell about all the geographic inconsistencies (my fav past time) but also being a great portrayal of a cool teen girl!!! and the sets they built, the whole world!! love that dang movie. fun fact: used to go trick or treating at that “school” because it’s actually just a dude’s house 
  2. dreams (the akira kurosawa film) this is just such a beautifully shot movie and really meaningful explorations of environmentalism. based on 7 dreams the director had. 
  3. everything is illuminated also a great book as well, and haven’t seen this movie in a few years but it was my fav during the height of my twee phase, and i think i’d still love it. it’s about a young jewish man with ocd who goes to eastern europe to learn the story about how his grandfather survived the holocaust. beautiful, touching, weird movie that def did not get enough praise ever 
  4. pride & prejudice look i love the miniseries too, but as far as movies, this is just so gorgeous to watch. if you like your high romance overly saturated in golden sunsets and mournful foggy marshes and love soaked in all the grand estates ten thousand a year can buy, have i got the movie for you
  5. clueless banking on the perfect blend of romantic austen and the 90s, this is a movie i think i watch at least every six months with my friends. just so good 
  6. 10 things i hate about you it was a hard call between this and dazed & confused, but 10 things has more nostalgia for me personally, so it makes the cut. i’ve lost count of the amount of times i’ve seen this movie/could probably quote the entire thing 

i’ve lost track of who hasn’t done this so idk who to tag but i guess @stillscape @gentlesleaze @this-too-too-sullied-flesh @soyforramen @crawledoutofthesea?? y’all done this?? anyone else can say i’ve tagged them etc etc etc


since no one seems to be happy with lgbt, mogai, or any other acronym or umbrella term, i came up with a new one that i think is gonna cover all our bases:

mpreg = marginalized people of romantic, erotic and gender

So the Indian Supreme Court passed a judgement today which basically states that freedom of sexual orientation is now a fundamental right in the country. And any discrimination on basis of sexual orientation will now be taken as unconstitutional and against the law.

This from a country where homosexuality was illegal till date. Like, today I am literally shook™ but so, so proud of India.

anonymous asked:

what are some really important pointers you have for people who want to make animatics?

this is probably gonna be a bit long so just a heads up i guess?? also please note im not a student for anything in art and am not a professional i’m just giving out my opinions on this and things based on my own experience.

  • do thumbnailing 

you don’t always have to start it with the actual frame and the drawing for thumbnailing doesn’t have to be good. this is just to let you have a feel of what you want for the final frame. it also doesn’t have to be digital you can just doodle it in some paper you found lying about. this is also good for parts of your animatics where there’s lots of movement(like dancing!) 

thumbnailing is also good for parts where you have multiple ideas! doodle all your possible ideas and see which one is best for that scene

  • perspective/angled shots

these are super cool and can help with the atmosphere of the scene! for example:

they also just look really nice and interesting and fun

  • landscapes and backgrounds

you can’t always have just a bunch of people gathered around all in one frame, you gotta show the setting of the whole thing

this also allows for your characters to move around more! don’t always make them flat like this though(this doesn’t mean you can’t do this, just don’t do it all the time)

grab a ruler or if you don’t have one like me, zoom out completely and try to make straight lines(they don’t rlly have to be perfectly straight though! but don’t make them too slanted either)

and if you have sai, free deform it and set the perspective to 100% and then just mess around with it!

also remember to add buildings/furniture/etc if needed!!

  • do dynamic poses

these help the facial expressions of the character! a lot of people seem to just concentrate on just the face for emotion but body language is also important!

you can throw in some perspective into this as well!

  • make a LOT of frames

as mentioned above, movement is very exciting!! and you can show movement with those frames. it doesn’t even have to be a lot of movement like one second they were there and now they’re in an entirely different spot, subtle movement is also very good! 

try not to reuse the same frame too much! it might end up looking very awkward 

also try not to just erase and add things to the body of a character as if it were some kind of paper doll stuck to a wall like this:

it’ll end up looking very stiff and awkward. instead, just redraw the character completely! make them move around a bit

you don’t always have to make things super clean

you don’t have to do clean lineart, just doodle a frame and make it easy to read for everyone on what’s happening. especially because drawing hundreds of frames is already so time consuming and not to mention stressful. do yourself a favor and not tire yourself out more than you should.

that’s kind of all the pointers i have. hope this helps!!!

since it seems to be the consensus that being the weird girl is lesbian culture i think we can all agree that harper from wizards of waverly place was a lesbian

witchy-woman’s spell jars.

Y’all are requesting spell jars I already have, and i realized they are properly buried in my blog so here’s what we have so far (plus the other posts like recipes and tutorials)
