i hope i picked good enough pictures

Out of the Frying Pan (32/?)

“Are you crying?” Ariel asked, voice shaking a bit as she rubbed her knuckles across her cheeks, dragging a bit of mascara along with her.

“Absolutely not,” Emma promised, blinking quickly like that would hide the evidence.

“Of course not. Me either. Only saps cry at weddings.”

AN: I owe @laurnorder like sixteen thousand gifts for fixing all of this and making it better and then several more thousand gifts for @distant-rose who is currently reading a sequel to a sequel to a sequel to a story that hasn’t been posted yet. 

Living it up on Ao3 and tag’ed up on Tumblr

hyacinthaie  asked:

your style is soooo beautiful i love it. :') how do you get your lines to look so...dark? do you use any specific pencils? o:

Thank you dearie!! That’s an interesting question! 

I don’t use any special tools for my pencil sketches. I got a mechanical pencil with ordinary hb lead, though I find myself enjoying drawing with 6b pencils as well. The paper itself also plays a part in this, but i would think it’s more of a personal preference thing. You may think the lines are dark because when I take pictures of them I put on a b&w filter on my phone and up the contrast a tiny bit.

Like this sketch here, I made sure to take the photo with good enough lighting, put on a noir filter and then tweaked the contrast a bit. I’m also pretty careful about line weight, so that the sketchy stuff is lighter and the important stuff stands out and it’s easier for the camera to pick up. 

I hope this helps!

Why I'm not like most 22 year old college guys

I’m really romantic and have a soft spot being mature and more understanding than guys my age, i have been told by a few tumblr followers I have the maturity of a 30 year old.

I do yoga, I love romantic movies, long walks on the beach, cuddling, (I would like to think i would enjoy kissing :P), talking for hours about nothing, reading a book with my girl, spending the night just doing nothing but playing board games and not getting wasted, dancing but not grinding, like having a ballroom dancing night :)

I want to wait till I’m married to have sex most women plan into the future more than guys, most guys think in the moment, gentlemen think future and long term with goals and ambitions wait because once you find that person, forever will just begin.

I think about my future more than girls sometimes, I think about my wedding and having kids when I think about liking a girl. I picture when I’m in the kitchen I see my wife helping my daughter pick out a dress or helping her with makeup.
about asking her father to marry her, if I know a girls family well enough and knowing I have a good personality and am polite and have mannners, I will show the family I treat their princesss like the princess she is and I hope when I ask the dad for his princesses hand he will say “I was waiting till you would ask that”

I’m going to buy my wife a Vera Wang dress (most guys in their 20’s don’t know who Vera Wang is, let alone what a Vera Wang dress is :P), I want to live in a moder house, have a boy and a girl, have a dog, never let money effect anything, always treat my wife like we are on a first date and when we fight, just never go to bed mad or upset at one another. make alot of money, raise my kids to be healthy and athletic, come home to my wife everyday and know she is loyal and one of a kind, Here is my plan, to my future wife….We’re going to have a few kids. We’re going to live in a beautiful huge house. Where ever your job takes you. We’re going to have such an amazing bond and friendship. We’re going to be amazing parents and were going to have a spontaneous fun life. Full of dancing in the rain nights and breakfast in bed all day movies and the best communication skills since that is what keeps relationships going, and work through anything. No matter what we will work through any problem. I wont let money take over our lives….. since money means nothing….but money CAN make you happy if used correctly. I will promise our kids will have good morals and be brought up as good athletic kids who are healthy and amazing.

it’s funny because this “I can’t draw white people” wasn’t actually an issue until I started doing freelance work. When I draw for myself it’s usually doodles of myself, my family (all chinese), sometimes my close friends (mostly chinese and mixed race), and a heck of a lot of anime characters (which obviously I would also think of as asian). So occasionally I’d get a request from someone who had a pretty solid idea of what their character’s face would look like so they’d send me pictures of usually white actors and actresses for me to use as a model for character work.

and there was one person who sent me back sketches of what was supposed to be a very good looking male character more than once with a general kind of, “somehow it doesn’t look handsome enough?” feedback. So I mean, all I could do at that point was keep drawing from the actor they’d listed as their face model and hope for the best, and I thought it was pretty weird that the sketches they picked as the most appealing were the ones where I thought, it looked good, but I hadn’t quite captured the look of the model. It took me a while to realize that this was because in trying to stylize the face into something more cartoonish to fit my usual drawing style, I was actually exaggerating features that I perceived as significant to whiteness.

so you know, oops??

I can only imagine artists trying to go the other way starting from whiteness as a default.

hey friends! it’s christmas and i don’t remember doing this for when i hit my first thousand or thousand and a hundred so i’m taking the chance and doing a follow forever now that it’s christmas (it just hit me i should’ve picked out a picture with snow and ice but bare with me i suck at editing more than anyone else on this trash globe so this is really as good as it gets) so here we are! these are all of my favorite people that i was technological enough to track down, or at least i hope they’re all here. happy holidays!

Cute Couple Idea

When you have problems expressing what is wrong (just in low unexplainable mood, can’t get into it at the time, don’t want to get into it, whatever) but you want to communicate to your partner something IS wrong (but not an emergency & you’ll survive) and that you require a morale boosting back-up buddy to help get you through until you can talk/it passes:

Have a phrase or word that you can text/say to each other quickly that the other person knows means BACK UP I NEED BACK UP! While knowing that they’re fundamentally okay but could use picking up.

Ours is “The water is freezing and their aren’t enough boats” (thanks titanic), and when one of us gets that message it’s our job to start sending cute pictures of cats, hilarious gifs, cheesy jokes from the internet, good songs – things that cause an immediate reaction and lighten the others day. Then when there’s time (or you finally feel like talking about it), the sad person is at least less sad and remembering they have an awesome partner. 

:) I hope this helps some busy, (or ldr) couple communicate quickly and happily <3

Speechless.. I almost started crying when I approached him. He signed my vinyl and I thanked him for everything he does for his fans and that his music has helped me for years and I couldn’t thank him enough. I also thanked Isom and Pontius as well. But Mark said he was glad he could help a little and then we took this picture. After this I had walked away and started crying. I thought this day would never come. I accomplished another dream. I met my idol and thanked him for his work and what good he does for this world. I can not thank them enough. They’ve given me hope, helped me believe in myself, have faith in myself, know I’m not alone an you can accomplish your dreams and make the world a better place. This concert, I was at the barricade behind a person but I was so close. I didn’t pick up my phone once to take a picture, I danced and sand along the whole time. I enjoyed myself. Thank you so much Foster The People. I wish I could have a one on one conversation with all of you to thank you individually. Thank you so much. Thank you for a wonderful night and thank you for allowing me to take photos with you and have my vinyl sign. You’re much appreciated. Thank you. Thank you so much. @fosterthepeople
