i just dont like the attention

Hey Guys

So I’m gonna be away for a bit, I wont bore you with the details but I have some real world issues that need my attention and I feel tumblr, and several others sites are distracting me.

But dont worry, i’m not leaving forever. Just for a bit. Like three weeks, maybe a month. It sounds like a bit, but time flies after awhile. 

I also want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for following me so far. I meant to do a bigger thing for getting 500 followers, but the those issues I was talking about kinda got in the way of that. And its also the reason why a few of projects I’ve been meaning to work on (Lincpool and Ask L3) Have been stagnant for a bit. And honestly I shouldn’t have tackled them when I had bigger problems to deal with. Though I always had time to take requests (To those who I still owe requests too, don’t worry, I’ll get those done when I get back just PM to remind me.) and talking to you guys have gotten me through some of these tough times and I don’t feel like I can ever really truly repay you all for that.

I’ll probably miss some stuff, but I’ll probably catch up when I get back. You folks just keep on truckin’ and drawin’ and writin’ and Memein’ and whatever the hell else your doin’ on here. And I’ll be happy what did while I was gone.

Until then. 

as a white™ to other whites™ in the omgcp fandom i feel like a lot of y'all are afraid to write poc because you dont want to get shit wrong but like fr. its not hard. just dont talk about being black or asian or latino if you dont know what its like. thats it. you can still write them, and have them be your main character, and allow them to be complex. you can be white and write a black character!!! all you have to do is not write about the black experience because you dont personally know about it. that means that you can still have them be black, like things that are typically associated with black culture (if thats what the character is like), and still have human emotions!! it can be done well, like if you take a gander at @geniusorinsanity who writes an amazing nursey!! and if you REALLY don’t feel comfortable making content like that, you can always reblog it!! support those creators, like @hoenursey and @omgcphee and @duanlarissa and @oluranurse and like a billion others!! follow accounts like @omgpocplease !! dont be afraid to show interest in those characters because even if you get called out, its a learning opportunity man. if someone calls you out then you just learn about what you did wrong like nobody is perfect but if you recognize your mistakes, own up to them, and strive to be better itll be okay!!! like the characters you want to, but dont be deterred from the ones you do because you dont want to make people angry!! its just a process of life my friends, we are all on a learning curve. (make content for non-white characters broski. it will enrich your life.)

daichi just wants to watch the movie in peace

most people who hate cats 

  • have only met other people’s cats, who may be shy or aggressive around people they dont know. they have genuinely never met a cat that cares about them
  • have no idea about cat body language, so when a cat is giving off signals saying “leave me alone” “stop touching me” “im annoyed” they keep giving it attention and end up getting swatted or bitten
  • have never met a cat in their life and just go off the stereotype that cats are jerks
Sorry for all the langst if ya don't like it buttttt..

SPOILERS AHEAD

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED

Can we just talk about the comic for a second? I would first like to pull into attention this panel

here they are talking about the sphynx’s riddle. Its a little hard to see, but that is in fact Lance talking. he mentions how his heart has been broken before but is now stronger. First of all, I thought like, holy quiznak thats out of character?? but maybe its not, maybe he is for once being real? I dont know, I might be over thinking this one, but its okay becuase overthinking is fun. To me it also sounds like maybe a cry for help, given the probable context of the next one.

okay, when I read this page, my entire being pretty much died. like, okay. Its pretty damn obvious here, not only is the sphynx calling lance out for being pathetic, but Lance doesn’t disagree. Again, something that is pretty out of character for this kid, given how he acted when they were rescuing the princess from earlier. This guy knows what goes on in Lance’s head, and after saying that, Lance couldn’t argue because he views himself as pathetic as well. this rounds back to season two when they are trying to get Slav out of prison, when he talks about being a seventh wheel.

I guess what I’m trying to get at is, Lance obviously has something going on. Not only is he homesick, but he can also feel himself being pushed aside, like he kinda was in season two, and kinda in general. and none of that helps with the self doubt and possibly even hate that he already has for himself. He is very good at not letting it show through, but I honestly think there are some serious mental issues happening with him. And, seeing as though this show isn’t afraid of making Shiro’s PTSD clear, I’m pretty sure that Lance’s insecurities are much much more than just that. That they are so bad that he feels he has to pretend to be someone else just to seem happy. 


But I could be completely wrong, he could simply be thinking about the thousands of hours hes probably wasted  watching cat videos. I guess we will find out though, huh? Just some food for thought, good night everyone!

(on a lighter note, I think o see some Klance goin on in the first pic too~)

no offence but andrew totally gets a (secret) laugh out of watching people flirt with neil. like, he’ll be stood a good length away at the gym, watching this guy try really hard to get (and then keep) neil’s attention. he especially likes that neil is so oblivious. so, when someone says “when are you free, i could show you some cool running tricks?” neil shrugs and says “i don’t know, i’d have to ask my boyfriend” and looks over his shoulder at andrew. andrew loves the way people shrink under his stare and he gets a real kick out of watching them scamper off

I am here for Lancelot and lemme tell you why

No, I’m not talking about true, genuine relationship-y type things.
I’m talking straight up abusive and obsessive, namely Lotor being obsessed with Lance.
I want Lotor to attack the paladins, see Lance, and throw the plan out the window because holy fuck he needs that boy now.

Please consider this:

Lance gets captured (or traded for a cease fire [the team opposed but Lance went anyways]) and taken onto a Galra ship where he gets a room with a nice bed and everything, but there’s no windows, no unlocked door. The air vents have bars in front like a jail cell. His room may be luxurious, but Lance has never fell more imprisoned.

Lotor drops by constantly, forcing Lance to do things in exchange for his life. The Galran prince will dress up our paladin in various outfits, ranging from showy to modest. He makes him dance (I headcanon blue paladins having a history of being exceptional dancers) and, as soon as he learned Lance could, sing.
If Lance refused a request, he’d get hurt. He put up with it for a while, but soon got too annoyed. He didn’t care anymore. So what if he got hurt? It’s not like his friends were coming (casually throws in some Langst for ya [dont worry, I promise Voltron is doing all they can]).
Eventually, Lotor learned that physical pain wasn’t working anymore, so he switch to psychological. He visited less and less. He let Lance go crazy from lack of social interaction. He’d show up again weeks later, and lo and behold the blue paladin was willing to do just about anything.
Lance thrived on attention.
Lotor used it against him.
The Prince repeated the process. As time went on, Lance became more and more dependent on Lotor’s attention. The more disinterested he seemed, the greater the lengths the paladin was willing to go to.
Mental abuse turned to sexual harassment turned to reluctant - almost fearful - consent. The Prince wanted everything Lance had to offer, and he was going to take it using whatever means necessary. Out of fear of being abandoned, the paladin went with whatever Lotor demanded.

By the time Voltron rescued him, Lance could barely function without the structure Lotor gave him. He forgot how to act around so many people, far to used to being in solitude, or in the abusive presence of the prince.
Lance was never quite the same.

// … We shouldn’t have to keep on reminding each other to respect the boys’ privacy, but after videos like the recent Tae one surface … my heart breaks for them :(

Please please please respect Bangtan’s personal space – it honestly shouldn’t need to be said anymore but holy shit please respect their privacy if you ever see them out in public.

on gurren lagann and kill la kill

i recently rewatched gurren lagann and it made me think a lot about all the ttgl VS klk discourse there was back when klk first aired, and now i understand a lot more shit than i did back then.

when i first watched gurren lagann, i was probably around 10-12 and didnt notice a lot of shit, mainly the fanservice. like, okay, it was pretty obvious most of the girls were always half naked but it took me a rewatch as an adult to realize how many fucking ass & tits shots there were and just how ridiculous the animation on boobs was.
and then there was the story, full of bullshit incoherences and weird characterization. also for some reason getting it with yoko = sudden death.

and then after finishing gurren lagann for the second time, mourning my favourite character dying and eating a bunch of peanuts, it hit me. how kill la kill wasnt to be compared to gurren lagann, but rather be seen as an evolution of it.

because no matter how “fanservice-y” klk was, we have to make sure not to forget these are the same people who made gurren lagann, and also the very same people who were so sick of the anime industry and its bullshit rules they made a new studio to produce what they really wanted to make.

ironically enough, despite how revealing the outfits in klk are, the actual amount of boob jiggling  and other hilarious ways to pander to single otakus is very limited. yeah, the boobs are there, but theyre mostly a shock factor and the audience stops giving a fuck pretty fast and focuses on whats actually happening in the story. nudity is more of a joke/theme than a gratuitous thing.

in the same way gurren lagann did, kill la kill does have some contradictions in its narrative, however here they are completely assumed: sometimes the story doesnt make sense but its embraced by the writers whereas in gurren lagann the writers kinda went bonkers and didnt really pay attention to what made or didnt make sense.

in the end, kill la kill is both a revenge on what its staff didnt like about the anime industry but also an improvement over scenario and characters. im also extremely happy that the first protagonist studio trigger created after it was formed was in the form of a badass, foul-mouthed girl whos not shamed for taking control of her body and sexuality and ends up dating an adorable girl.

yay for anime, i guess :V

I'm kinda ashamed to ask this, but could you make a tutorial on how to draw hands? ;A;

omg dont be ashamed at all!! Hands are generally tough to get used to, lots of artists struggle with it! so dont be ashamed i feel you.

and I actually have made a hand anatomy guide before in fact! If you want to get better at drawing hands I def recommend you learn the basic anatomy first. Please check out the ones I made, I try to make it simple and easy to understand:

There’s my guide to the anatomy, but here’s some more tips that I’ve noted to myself that I’d like to include

First off, I’d like to just note on the fingers: if you pay close attention to your own hand, you may notice the fingers are ever ever so slightly curved inward. It’s a very subtle detail, but I noticed that, despite how slight it is, it can make a hand look more lively, and less stiff.

Second, the “M” on the palm! Your hand moves in many ways, and because it does it creates creases in your hand. The most prominent creases appear to make an M shape; this is handy to remember for what I’m going to talk about next. (It also could be a “W” I guess, or to be more specific a “ )X( “; just think of it in whatever way helps you remember!)

SO now that you see the M, draw your hand as a basic blocked shape and add your details. As you do, you can see that the M divides the palm into four basic parts!

When the hand moves, parts A, B, or C of the palm, alone or in different combos, will create the general poses that the hands do normally. These parts are the parts that move, with D being stationary, no matter what!

Here’s a chart of all the possible combos. Once you have down what part of the hand moves for a certain pose, you can change up the fingers and tweak it a bit to do what you need to make it more specific!

This is simply my method of drawing hands. God knows there are hundreds of tutorials out there by other artists, but personally, this way helps me the best (after learning the anatomy first). 

This way I can divide the hand and combine the parts in any such way I need! 

Hands take a lot of effort to grapple, and you need to practice them a lot, especially foreshortening of the hand; that’s really something you need to learn through your own studies. Look at your own hands, draw hands from life, from magazines, shows, comics; just draw hands! You’ll eventually figure out a method that works best for you. So to get better at drawing hands; draw hands!! And don’t stress over it, have fun with it!

And so it was that The Joshua Tree 2017 Tour started with Larry No Fucks Given Mullen Jr strutting down the catwalk like a motherfucker. And so it also was that Larry No Fucks Given Mullen Jr ignored the crowd as he went, giving no fucks as he proceeded to slam out the intro to Sunday Bloody Sunday like the cool motherfucker that he is. I Love You, Larry No Fucks.

… i just dont get it like ? why was syco so silent if they kept louis and didnt we get a article saying simon lost all of 1d ? like all the other boys got amazing welcomes from their labels so you would think syco would be happy to keep him ? been supporting him since the band went on hiatus since he stayed loyal with them and put all their attention on him and wouldve been showing him off even more so with how much fan support he has and how well jho did and he wouldve been seen with simon even more and simon hasnt been see with him since last year idk something isnt adding up.

The Heroes: How They Deal with Kids

-because when you grow up and become a hero, kids will hear about you. And you will be recognized on the street.

-Denki gets distracted a lot. So when a kid is like, “ohmygosh hi!!” he is like: “WHAT HAPPENED?!” And starts sparking and shit like a villain is gonna jump out at him. The kids tend to just giggle and get excited to see his electricity. Then he calms down and like, spends some time making them laugh with static electricity between their fingers.

-Kiri LOVES the kids’ attention. He’s really smiley and happy, and will autograph anything. One time, a child asked him if he could break a glass bottle against Kiri just to see how hard his skin was. The parents were like STOP OMG DONT PLAY WITH GLASS and Kiri is like, “sure, I bet I could break it with just my pinky!!”

-Izuku is super flattered and shy, and tells them they’re gonna grow up and be awesome heroes too. He cannot believe that people want his autograph, but he doesn’t say no. Parents really love him and kids like to pile stuff in his arms to see how much his strength can hold. Or they just climb on top of him.

-Shouto is all right with kids. He’s kinda soft-spoken, but he smiles at them and will give them really good advice. He comforts a lot of crying children by making snowflakes for them. Children like to ask him to heat up stuff for them just to watch it melt. He’s superrrr protective and is completely the type to see any sort of parental abuse in public (whether its verbal or almost physical) and like, scare the shit out of said parent. Kids are very grateful for him.

-Katsuki hates children. Just….He doesn’t….Yeah it’s bad. He’ll sign stuff for them, but most of the time, it goes like this:
Kids: “EXPLOSION GUY!”
Katsuki: “The fuck?”
Kids: “MOMMM HE SAID A BAD WORD!”
Katsuki: “AGH SHUT UP YOU LITTLE—AGH I MEAN, NO, IT’S NOT A FUC—IT’S NOT A BAD WORD.”
Kids: “So I can say it too?”
Katsuki: “Uh, why would I give a f—why would i care?”
Kids: “Can I—?”
Katsuki: “See me blow up something?”
Kids: “—touch your hair?”
Katsuki: “…”

Ooohhh I understand! Its not childish you just want to protect them! Trust me there’s a lot of people who think the same, really. Me too, I’m so happy and so so proud of them but a lil part of me is just scared for them. But yea I guess they are aware of this, I mean things like that usually happen when u gain exposure.
We can’t really do much about this so yeah lets just support the boys and ignore the bad influence 👼👼
