i have no idea what's going on in this picture and I love it

To everyone out there who likes to write (or is just bored rn) I put together a little collage of pictures to spark a story idea. I love doing this with random words on a page sometimes too. But this time I used random pictures from my camera roll. Well, go ahead! Write a story, short story,poem, song, whatever. The way those pictures allign in your mind and what they create to you is going to be so unique. (Ps. I’d love to see what you come up with. But you don’t have to share it. Your choice. )

Hello, I had a quick question if you don't mind? I'm trying to put my art out there for the first time but I don't really know how to go about it. Do you have any ideas or advice that could help? I'm sorry to bother you, honey. I love you're art by the way, it's so adorable.<3

  • you don’t have to post everything you make, but don’t let fear/doubt stop you from sharing your stuff
  • have a clear art tag OR art blog that’s easy to get to from your blog
  • make a portfolio site – easy for people to see, and helpful to see your progress, what you need to work on, your patterns, what you need to draw more of, etc.
  • (this might seem obvious but) make sure the work is clear. take well-lit pictures/careful scans; save @ at least 300 dpi; make sure it’s not grainy
  • remember your signature in a corner or small spot! (I’ve forgotten this before… unfortunately people will just crop out your signature or blur it even if you remember, but it’s good to know you tried ._.;)
  • there’s no surefire way to get noticed - most people would suggest drawing fanart, but definitely don’t draw anything unless you’re personally interested in it… draw things YOU want to draw, and your passion and dedication will show in time
  • as for advice about the art itself, studies ALWAYS help a lot. by studies i mean using reference, from life or photographs. it’s helpful to have a reference folder. mine is separated into categories like architecture, forests, fashion, etc. 
  • drawing inspiration from other artists helps, and everyone tries to emulate someone when they start out. it’s best to figure out exactly what you admire about someone’s art/style/work ethic (ie. they have great movement or use of light or expressive characters); this’ll give you concrete goals and prevent being stunted by envy.
  • good luck!! 

For some reason I don’t understand and certainly cannot explain, I would really love to read a 50s or early 60s sansan AU fic based on the song ‘Leader of the Pack’ by The Shangri-las. Sansa would be a sweet and well behaved teenager girl and Sandor the leader of a motorcycle club. Like in the song, they would meet at a candy store, which makes me laugh anytime I stop to think about it because for the life of me, I just can’t picture him going to a candy store at all and have no idea what the hell he’d be doing there. :P

If you don’t know the song, here’s a link to its video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8UKf65NOzM

anonymous asked:

Can I just express my wonder at how there's many people who still try to find a way to justify many of Vriska's action? Like, okay, everything isn't black and white, and Homestuck is really no exception, but honestly? Even from a logical standpoint, which I love using, there's very little that can be excused. I've literally read just a post that said Tavros went to kill Vriska out of revenge and that she killed him only for self-defense. I'm speechless. Your thoughts, dear fellow hermesnitram?

My conclusion is that people simply don’t read the comic, only look at the pictures. Tavros says outwardly that he is going to try to stop Vriska because she became the villain by creating Jack Noir. It wasn’t personal, he was trying to be a hero or more - simply do the right thing.

I guess that if someone can’t read, then maybe they shouldn’t actively speak about characters they have only vague idea about or maybe they should learn to not skip logs that are essential to the plot. Homestuck is a very long illustrated book written in a log format, not essentially an actual picturesque comic everyone were used to before it came out.You either read it, or you perpetuate such dumb ideas.

I guess this all comes from the fact it’s very long and ppl can’t give it attention it needs cause, for some reason, they want to hurry through. I get it. I wasn’t very attentive when I gave it the first read.

But that’s why I read it for the second time. Something to consider if you’ve read Homestuck only once.

I have no idea why I love that picture of Rei holding dog food so much but I do. I do a lot. Her face is set in this 'Just TRY me, fucker' expression but then she gingerly cradling this bag of dog food and it's just...I have no idea? Vulnerable, maybe? She's so guarded (as she always is)but at the same time she's being so kind to this animal to the point where she made sure to go out of her way to buy food and go back to the place she'd probably rather not be (cause, you know, mom's grave)

HEY THANKS FOR THAT FINAL THOUGHT KAT THAT’S JUST EXACTLY WHAT I HADN’T CONSIDERED

Really though, Rei is so fucking serious about the Here! Dog Food, and it’s kind of the most perfect and amazing thing.

Ignore my crappy stitch for the sake of general awesomeness.

I don’t even know that I see a challenge in Rei’s expression right now, so much as a defensiveness almost. WHICH IS VERY INTERESTING COMING FROM REI. She isn’t backing down of course, because Rei Hino, but I think it says a lot about how she’s a bundle of emotions about Minako and the situation betweent them right now, though. WHICH I’MMA TALK ABOUT NOW OF COURSE, though I haven’t finished the episode yet, so concede I may not have full context at the moment.

What I get from what we saw, though, was that Rei is doing everything she’s supposed to do: she’s immediately devoted herself to the Princess, and is making her top priority. But because Minako’s stuck in Decoy Mode at the moment, Rei’s actually fucking up big time as far as Minako’s concerned. Protect the Princess, yes good, BUT NOT ME YOU GIANT FLAMING DORK. I think Minako is as much angry at herself as she is at Rei, because she doesn’t know how to divert Rei’s attention where it’s supposed to be without giving up everything.

WHY she doesn’t let Rei in on this, I don’t know. CLEARLY REI IS NOT THE ONLY GIANT FLAMING DORK.

So Rei’s kind of stuck, because on the one hand, she puts 500% into what she believes because she’s Rei, but on the other, Minako’s pissing her off for what, to Rei, is no reason at all. So when I look at her picture up there, I see her very guarded. They connected SO WELL and SO FAST over this dog, and seemed to genuinely be enjoying each other’s company. (Which by the way, how much has Rei already grown since we first met her UGH REI STOP IT I ALREADY LOVE YOU TO MAXIMUM CAPACITY HOW MUCH MORE DO YOU WANT FROM ME.)  Now it’s all weird, though, and Rei doesn’t know what to expect.

And they both seemed surprised to see the other, too, which is another interesting element. Now suddenly the dog takes on HUGE SYMBOLIC MEANING, because although Rei and Minako are kind of pissed and awkward with each other, neither of them could forget or abandon their “duty”. And in that, I think it’s more than a little significant how, as you pointed out, Rei thought ahead for how best to care and provide for the dog and had to put in that much more work both emotionally (back to the church) and physically (riding her bicycle across town) to be there, while Minako was only considered providing her presence. YOU TOLD REI SHE HAD A LOT TO LEARN BUT I THINK THE LESSONS WILL MOSTLY BE YOURS, MINAKO.

They’ve only had two scenes together, really, and already their dynamic is incredibly complicated. It’s kind of fantastic.

Interview: Megan

Today we’re joined by Megan, who also goes by PharaohsThrone and Chelle Cosplay. Megan is an incredibly enthusiastic fanartist who is quite versatile. She writes, draws, and does a lot of cosplaying. Judging from her interview (and the beautiful pictures that go with it), she really loves what she does. That’s always wonderful to read. My thanks to her for taking the time to participate in this interview.

WORK

Please, tell us about your art.

I have been cosplaying, writing and drawing for the past few years. I’ve always had a need to be creative, so any medium to do so I’ve wanted to try. All of it has been the product of fandom, which has then made me want to expand onto my own original ideas, which are still growing, and I’m really happy with what I’ve achieved over the last few years. I still have a lot that I can improve on, but I thoroughly enjoy every part of it.  

What inspires you?

Other artists. Whether it’s seeing the cosplay competitions at conventions, or reading one of my favourite stories, or seeing some brilliant fanart - it will make me want to create. Usually when I see someone is doing a live stream, I’ll have it open while I’m drawing because it just gives me a lot of motivation. Also the idea that I want to bring what’s in my head to life, so I can share it with others.

What got you interested in your field?  Have you always wanted to be an artist?

I always admired people who could write and draw well when I was in school, but I never really amused the idea that I could try it myself until a few years ago, when I was drawn into anime and wanted to start creating things for my favourite characters and such. I wanted to write about them, draw my own version of them, and cosplay as them, and from there it just kinda grew

Do you have any kind of special or unique signature, symbol, or feature you include in your work that you’d be willing to reveal?

Not really with my writing or drawing, but recently with my cosplays, because a lot of my favourite characters are males, I’ve been doing fem versions of them and am going to continue doing so because it means I can do my own twist on the design, and it turns out a lot better. I always enjoy the process of “would they have long hair? How would their outfit differ?” etc.

What advice would you give young aspiring artists?

Whatever it is that you do, try and create something as often as you can. Also don’t get down on yourself when you’re having a bad creative day. I get writers block and days where whatever talent I thought I had just disappears, and that’s okay. Sometimes you just need to keep trying, and others maybe you need a break, but always come back to it. As they say, practice makes perfect.

ASEXUALITY

Where on the spectrum do you identify?

I’m still trying to figure out exactly where I am on the spectrum. Definitely ace, but possibly borderlining on sex repulsed, but still sex positive? Yeah idk let’s just go with ace.  

Have you encountered any kind of ace prejudice or ignorance in your field?  If so, how do you handle it?

I haven’t really experienced that much prejudice or ignorance simply because I don’t feel the need to share the fact that I’m asexual with people. Because I am dating an allosexual though, my friends seemed to have some sort of an idea, and my only problem is that they like to turn our somewhat non-existent sex life into a joke, which is frustrating. 

What’s the most common misconception about asexuality that you’ve encountered?

The idea that there was something wrong with me. My boyfriend even did it at first, saying that I should see a doctor or a psychologist. Then the idea that my lack of sexual attraction and drive was because there was something wrong with him, that he wasn’t good enough. It’s a never ending circle.

What advice would you give to any asexual individuals out there who might be struggling with their orientation?

Sometimes it can be really hard accepting that you’re asexual, and it takes time to come to terms with it. It never happens overnight, just like any kind of orientation, but take things one step at a time, and try to remember that there is nothing wrong with you. Don’t let anyone try to force you into ‘fixing’ anything. There are plenty of wonderful people and lots of information out there that can help, and it does not by any means mean you have no hope at a relationship. You are valid, and you do matter.

Finally, where can people find out more about your work?

I pretty much post all my writing and drawing on Tumblr (pharaohsthrone.tumblr.com) and I have a cosplay page on Facebook (www.facebook.com/chellecosplay) I also have a DeviantArt account which I post my better stuff on (http://pharaohs-throne.deviantart.com)

Thank you, Megan, for participating in this interview and this project. It’s very much appreciated.

I have no idea how people make pastel edits but I made this because that picture is iconic

Daewon: “i must be cute omg what should i do” *typical v pose*
Leegeon: “lets all take a moment to not only thank jesus but to also thank god aka me….”
Buffy: “must stay cool must be sexy must be the model yo”
Moos: “bye”
H.O: “is this guy over there naked omg”
Heojun: “I’m hungry I wanna go home I’m cold and can I go to the toilet”

anonymous asked:

HEAD-CANON: how do you think sherlock holmes will end?? Also,If you don't mind, try to picture the final scene of the last episode. Do this for me, I don't have imagination lol

Martin, Ben and the writers have all said they’d happily continue into their old age, so I think it’ll probably end perhaps as they’re about to retire. Maybe their last case and then the epilogue will be years later with them living happily in Sussex. I don’t think it’ll end with them dying because mark and Steven are determined that this time sherlock and John have a happy ending. They love the poem 1895 which calls john and Sherlock the “men who never lived and so will never die”, which obviously isn’t literal, but the idea of Sherlock and Johns love as a constant force that’ll live throughout time is what they’re going for.

It’ll end with a kiss I imagine, both of them with white hair and worn hands. John maybe calling Sherlock ‘brilliant’ and Sherlock beaming like he’s done since the beginning. John gently kissing Sherlock’s smiling lips, the two of them finally free to love each other unconditionally, something they’ve waited for since 1887.

anonymous asked:

Hair does always grow back. Have you considered alternatives? Are there any piercings you've wanted to get, or maybe a small tattoo, or linework for something bigger? Or if it's mostly a hair thing, there's all kinds of different things you could try.. though, you'll have to look elsewhere for advice there, I honestly can't get past your eyes anytime I look at your pictures.

I would love to get a tattoo. That’s what Zek is giving me for my birthday. Gonna get one more starter pokemon. I think I’ve just been sad lately. When I get really low I always want to cut my hair off. It’s actually really remarkable I made it this long.
Thank you for the ideas. If I had more money I would probably go get like a half sleeve done haha.

Hacker: A TAG Own Script

Plot: Alan is learning the mechanics of Thunderbird 5. John takes Thunderbird 3 out on a mission but when John leaves; an anonymous user tries to hack into EOS, leading to a Thunderbird 5 system crash. Can Alan save everyone and everything before the hacker takes full control?

If I tried to write a script for this. Would anyone read it? 

I mean, I love writing scripts more than I love writing fan fics because I’m a nerd about scripts and screenplay! I just like the idea of having only canon things to go by and letting the audience paint the picture instead of describing every last detail! But if no one would read it, what’s the point writing it?

anonymous asked:

tell us more chicken stories i love them

uhhh shit let’s see what i’ve got

SO i think the second time i got chickens (the first time, they all got eaten) a hawk flew into their coop. their coop is covered from all sides and the top so to this day i still have no idea how the hell the hawk got in there but like. naturally we wanted to get the hawk out of the cage because you know, hawk is above chicken on the food chain, so we go in there and managed to catch it in a dog cage. my mom insisted on keeping it in the cage for a while, but we had no proper food to feed the bird so i tried feeding it honey baked ham, which it didn’t eat lmao (i was 12, don’t beat me up about this) so after two days of it not eating anything we let it go, and it immediately eats ALL our chickens when we turn our back to it yikes (I remember crying over their carcasses and my mom yelling for me to shut up from the bathroom window after 15 minutes)

OH and here’s some exclusive footage of my chicken in the 3 feet of snow outside rn

delicatelyunabasheddreamer asked:

Hi, I'm a HUGE fan of yours! I just wanted some tips as a fellow artist on selling my work! I don't do people, per say, but I do other things (i.e. I've been designing tattoos for my friends and stuff) and it was pointed out that I shouldn't be doing it for free, and I have no idea what to price anything or how to go about it. I can send you pictures of some of the things I've done to let you judge, but I would love your opinion please~

Hello! So first off I’m aware that I really really lack self confidence, so instead of deciding on the price based on how good I am relative to other artists, I research the market price (looking through storenvy marketplace, stalking art friends’ stores…) and set my price around the same, because otherwise I would get nowhere (”would people really buy my stuff? I wouldn’t even buy my own stuff”). You also have to take into account your production cost (material cost + time cost). Decide how many percent of the total price the production cost should be, and use that as your “template” when you set prices. 

…That’s how I do it anyway. When I’m really unsure (e.g. the stamps), I ask the twitter peeps using the poll feature haha

(off topic) Regarding doing things for free… as long as you don’t feel obligated to do it? For me, even when it comes to friends and family, I only say yes if I feel like it and have the time. Sometimes they’d say something like “art is easy for you right? can you just make something for me really quick?” and it really annoys me because you wouldn’t say that to any other professions. Don’t ever feel guilty for saying no.

Right, this is what a typical style guide on our site looks like: A quick description of what Gen is wearing followed by pictures of said items and a list of them that link back to our blog. To the side as you can see is Gen wearing the outfit and finally at the bottom we have a list of alternative dupes and a list of more affordable dupes, depending on your budget. 

I’m going to try and replicate something similar using a Tumblr page theme I hopefully find, but I need your assistance. Could you just quickly send us an ask explaining what the most useful bits of the guides are and what bits we can maybe do without. That way I can get a better idea of what type of thing I’m going to try and create here on the blog so we still have guides in some capacity for you lovely people. 

Thank you chummies!

Pros and Cons of a Happy Planner

Late last year I was RAK’ed (aka gifted) a MAMBI Happy Planner, thus I decided that I would not purchase an Erin Condren for the 2016 year, and instead I would use what I have at hand. A long side personal size planners, which pretty much go everywhere with me, I love using large planners like the ECLP, HP and A5 binders as my desk planners. 

I tend to use them to; 

- Write things down that I want to plan out but don’t necessary need to take with me like… work-out goals, meal planning, blog ideas, etc

- Scrapbook/journal in it, by adding tiny printed pictures from my week or participating (rather poorly) in doodle challenges

- Use it a as a stress relief and creative outlet by adding a crazy, and some would say unprofessional, amount of stickers

I really enjoy the vertical layout iconizes by Erin Condren, however  after one month of using the Happy Planner over the ECLP here is what I like and don’t like about this planner when compared to the ECLP

PROS:

1) The HP is ½ the cost of an ECLP, I call that a win because for the additional $25 you can buy yourself a ton of extra planner goodies

2) Its disc bound which means you can customize it, adding pages, sections or any other items you wish

3) The “Currently” Monthly section is amazing

4) The 2016-2017 releases look to die for…I am looking at that floral print one with lust 

(photo credit)

5) Their planner add ons like the “home planner”, “fitness planner”, etc are pretty darn cool

6) The paper quality isn’t necessarily better than ECLP but it is different in a very nice way

7) Though colorful, for some weird odd reason, the color isn’t as in your face as with the ECLP

8) You can take out your pages for easy decoration

9) You can remove pages if it becomes to heavy

CONS:

1)  Its bigger that the ECLP and even though its just a few inches wider and taller, the difference makes it a big heavier to lug around when and if you do

2) Changing Disc can be somewhat annoying

3) Its easier to find stickers that fit in the ECLP in the market

4) Lack of  cover customization, which is one thing I love about EC

5) No loyalty points for frequent buyers like EC

6) Some of the add ons can add up and shipping can get intense

7) Folding over your planner is not that easy and the planner feels fragile because of it

8) Sorry, but the disc bound, as cute as it is, is not as strong as the coil bound, my pages have fallen apart in transport often and have gotten damaged

9) Restock isn’t as frequent as EC, so once a planner or item you love its sold old it can take for ever or become impossible to get it

Well there you have it 9 things I love and dislike about the HP.

I am currently lusting over an EC, which makes no sense. Its too early in the year to tell what I will do next year but with both companies release items mid year, I may just be tempted to upgrade  then. 

I Can Hear the Bells

@favoritefadedfantasies Just picture Chat singing this while thinking of Marinette because THIS IS LITERALLY STUCK IN MY HEAD.  WHAT HAVE I DONE?! THIS HAS TO HAPPEN.

I can hear the bells,
My ears are ringing,
I can hear the bells,
The brides-maids are singing,
Everybody says that a girl who’s such a gem, won’t look my way.  Well the laughs on them 'cause…

Her mother starts to cry but I can’t see 'cause Marinette and I are french kissin’

I can’t stop the peeling,
Everybody warns that she won’t like what she’ll see but I know that she’ll look inside of me yeah…

I can hear the bells,
Today’s just the start 'cause,
I can hear the bells and,
Till death do us part and,
Even when we die we’ll look down from up above remembering the night that we two fell in love, We both will shed a tear and
she’ll whisper as we’re reminiscin’

LISTEN!

I can hear the bells,
I can hear the bells,
I can hear the bells.

I took other pictures of the cross-stitch before these but I have no idea where I put them. When I find them, I’ll post them. This is one of the cross-stitchs I’m making for myself. Throughout my life I’ve always been in love with cats. I’ve always had cats and my life isn’t complete without them. This is one of the hardest cross-stitch I’ve ever made because of the amount of colors that are really similar. Also, the pattern didn’t have numbers for the colors so I’m left guessing what the hell is the best number for the color described as “rust” and “dark rust”. Also, I usually deal with patterns that have colors and this one only has symbols so that’s a new for me. And since I usually cross-stitch while watching Bones (I’m in season 8!) sometimes I make mistakes and have to go back or (most frequent) just continue.


I wanted to make the Hogwarts Crest but my fabric wasn’t enough in height so I chose to make other cross-stitch first and then, when I buy fabric, I’ll make the Hogwarts crest.
