i got frustrated with my colorings

My dash is now so empty with all those blacklisted fe14 post, so I thought it’s time to draw a quick fe13 character. Here is a Olivia sketch~

Signs as bullshit 2-D said:

Aries: “Come on make some noise please! Please I’m in the toilet right now but we need to do some Man Research underneath this (inaudible) a funny color!”

Taurus: “I got my nob caught in the clapperboard. When the director yelled ‘Action!’ he got a lot more than he bargained for.”

Gemini: “WHAT DO YOU MEAN? I DON’T KNOW. I’m very frustrated this morning.”

Cancer: I mean, look at the way he’s thrusting his giblets!”

Leo: “2-D or not 2-D!”

Virgo: “Poo knows his shit!”

Libra: “So me reckons that you stole the chorus of Song 2 from that Elton John and Kiki Dee classic ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart!’ you know ‘WOO HOO’.”

Scorpio: “It’s a beach, a horrible plastic beach. You can’t even order pizza here.”

Sagittarius: “I bought the complete set of the Seven Samurai action figures when we played in New York. I’ve also got a jar full of my old toenails, it really stinks.”

Capricorn: “Am, am I boverred? Am I bovverred though? Does my face look bovvered?”


Pisces:  “For the unofficial site, if you tell me where the toilet is, you win a slice of quiche!”

Internet Pragmatics™ and Racial Stereotypes

White people in the English-speaking world have been given free license to break colonialist faux-Classical grammar rules 5eva (i can haz, lolspeak, l33tspeak, My Immortal, cattes, such soft so doge, u wot m8, sh*tgibbons, boaty mcboatface, lyking the bred, etc).

While white people are assumed to know the rules and consciously flout them for humorous effect, people of color doing the same things online often have to add footnotes proving they know what they did “wrong,” as the online audience will unfairly assume they are uneducated and “didn’t know any better.” This author probably got dozens of “corrections,” whether gentle or angry, for an obviously intentional nonstandard pattern, prompting their valid frustration at the sentient fedoras.

And it’s a safe bet that most of those pedants also follow gimmick accounts that twist language all the dang time, but they only complain about one person’s indefinite determiners.


Beautiful and Beefy Mom flexing her muscles! Torino has regrets now in agreeing to this arm wrestling match while Toshinori is in awe.

(5 month old artwork that I FINALLY got around to finishing. I think I didn’t get around to finishing this cause I was still practicing how to draw muscles and got frustrated after some time. Tried cleaning up some of the parts I had trouble with and colored in Torino’s pain in the butt hair. I think it’s alright in the end! :D)

so I'm white, and I love making characters with my artistic abilities and ideas. But I've always been afraid of stepping on people's toes whenever I make poc character with a certain sexuality. As if I'm somehow making a statement about the characters entire race... I just want to make a character dude, not a statement. Like I got a black guy who's gay, white guy who's bi, Hispanic who's a lesbian, and an Asian who's ace, and they are their own peoples and all developed and all that, still bad?

My inner Asian Frustration impulsively rolls their eyes at any white creator in existence, as an artist myself. Call me egg rolls.

But don’t take that to heart. Representation in a fictional world means that your characters only have the ‘agency’ you can afford to express in a few words or imagery. It also means that their awareness of being queer and of color is based off of your own, non-personal, non-sworn understanding of the queer of color experience.

So there’s only so much erasure and bad representation you can avoid. Not just through your characters and the story, but also because there’s only so much you can know about being (insert race here).

Basically, for any white-told story of color to be decent, you’ll need to be repeating words that have come from us for years. That’s a problem of itself, but something that can’t be fixed by either you or me in a short amount of time.

So it’s complicated, but a blow can always be softened by your willingness to be open for change and growth.

My art summary for 2016. It was a wild ride! it really was…. This year I was all about color and backgrounds. I’m still not where I want to be but I feel like there is some improvement from last year to now! and that makes me really happy! I’m facing an artblock again so seeing that my work is not for nothing makes me feel better.
April and May were mostly packed with my work on my kagehina comic! which was a really new experience for me but it was definitely worth it!
August may have been the work I’m most proud of since like…..ever? I reached so many people with this one piece of art and I felt overwhelmed by all the feedback I got on this one. Funny thing is that this picture was actually not really planned? Like, I was trying to draw something else, but I got frustrated with that so I just slapped some color on a new canvas and somehow it developed into this.
Sometimes I’m glad that I make those happy little accidents! But I also want to be able to do things on purpose xD so thats my goal for 2017!! MORE COLOR, MORE PERSPECTIVE, MORE DOING STUFF ON PURPOSE!!
Thank you for sticking with me this year! I know I’m not as active lately as I wanted to be but this year was like one of these rollercoasters where you’re going up at first and you have this great view of everything and then it fucking drops and you feel like you’re dying (yep thats actually pretty accurate!)


I have no doubt I’ll be refining this section many times, but this is what 5 hours of work has gotten me today. Not much and it’s really frustrating. I need to wait for Keyleth to dry and I’m just trying to figure out how to balance the colors and blend wolf and Minxy and the brass dragon like I did with the bear.
Yes it looks like crap thanks for noticing. Got any suggestions?

6:30 AM CrossFit, check! My first real workout in a week, 😬. Hang power snatches…3 x 5 at 55 lbs. I’m not sure what was up with everyone today, but there was a sound of frustration during the first pull. A few of us failed on the first rep, including me. “You’re making me nervous, watching me!” Coach Rel to Coach Nic. “Well, how am I suppose to do my job if I don’t watch you?” he replied.

WOD, for time:
5 Clean and Jerks (70 lbs)
20 Lateral Burpees
10 Clean and Jerks (65 lbs)
20 Lateral Burpees
15 Clean and Jerks (55 lbs)
20 Lateral Burpees
Time: 14:33. I was the last one to finish, but I got the most cheers. 🎉

I went with a bright lip color on this dreary day.

Lip color: Sephora Cream Lip Stain in Strawberry Kissed.

I'm not sure if this has been asked already but what got you into watercolor?

HAHAAHA this is so silly if i remembered back then.
I used to hate traditional media.
Because I cannot undo my mistake, because I cannot copy pasted some material or tracing references (example : flowers, animal, building) its not as easy like digital did.
And my inking skill was horrible. Then I got my pen tablet and I become attached to it. Im more confident when im drawinh in digital. But, years ago its broken, cant do anything so I just throw it.
Thats the time i go back to traditional media. I was so frustrated at the beginning, but the more i did it the more I love it.
Using watercolor got a special sensation foe me, when the water flows and blend with the colors, when the colors bleed on the paper, i dont know its making me happy. Now I become more attached to traditional medias than the digital one.

this was just supposed to be a quick doodle ( ー△ ー ;)


1 of 3 flower-based “magical girl” outfits i sketched up awhile back. i’ll get around to slapping some inks/colors on the other 2 in the next few weeks


You know what the issue is with this world? Everyone wants some magical solution for their problem, and everyone refuses to believe in magic.

Hey there! I was just wondering, do you use any specific palette for hair colors in sims 4? Like Pooklet Overhaul or WMS' palette? or do you just stick with good ol' ea colors?

I used to use various palettes but I got frustrated with all my cc hairs not matching in colour so now I only use EA’s wonderful colours lol :^P

Part 1. I asked the universe to send me a feather of a certain color if me and this guy were twin flames. I got the feather and was really happy. But from observing him at a party I know he finds one of my friends attractive. I asked the universe if they were going to get together somehow and I feel like they will and I'm just scared. I'm trying to raise my vibration to bring us together sooner but it's hard and frustrating. And I know feeling like this lowers my vibration but I can't help it.

Part 2. But also if our souls are connected couldn’t I have manifested that thought? So if I just believe that he just wants to be my friends friend and ask her for advice to get to me wouldn’t that just happen? Part 3. I think my manifestation worked. I was singing songs to myself a song that popped into my head has the lyrics “she’s fine too but I want you” so I think I’m going to be okay. And I’m doing homework with my friend and she said she feels like she would be a good wing woman and would want to do it for fun. I have nothing to worry about!! Isn’t that crazy though? I love how the universe sends me messages”

Awesome about the feather! That’s a pretty specific sign so that’s definitely a good point for discernment. 

Twin flame relationships (heck, all relationships really!) are naturally very complicated. The best thing to do is trust in the feeling of love and honor the natural flow of your relationship. I can’t predict if he and your friend will end up together, but if you are twin flames it may even be an opportunity for him to feel closer to you and maybe your relationship will develop from that! There is so much potential with this. 

Ultimately, focus on your own happiness and contentment (as much as possible with this situation). That will help you feel the most free and, although I don’t use this terminology much, raise your vibration. 

Even when souls are connected, we can’t control another person. You can definitely wish and hope for a certain outcome and imagine it happening, but it’s much easier to imagine a situation you are in (like you two together) since you can control at least one half of the equation! It’s much more likely to manifest something that way. And, of course, it would totally make sense if the Universe is reassuring you that everything is going as best as possible too! Best of luck with all of this.

I an never get my art to look like how I see it when I hear the music :(I just suck at art and it's frustrating coz I can't show what I see

Omg no, you definitely don’t suck.

As someone who’s done at least 500 of these, it’s super hard to nail down the right motion and colors, especially since songs are moving and the canvas isn’t. 

It took me probably eight or nine attempts at “Light Em Up” by Fall Out Boy to get it looking even close to what I wanted. Same for a few others, but that’s the one that stands out. Because songs are super hard to capture. It’s a totally different type of art and it’s made harder because you don’t have a super still reference. It’s something that definitely takes practice, and a lot of the time it’s just trial and error.

Keep going! I promise that the more you practice and get into the swing of things, the easier it gets!
