i just have a lot of feels about these two

Fashion advice for lil transgirls from your big bro Dylan:
  • Motherfuckin’ Sock Boots. they’re easier to put on then high leather boots and wont scab up your ankles. can blend with black tights for the sailor moon/seto kaiba look
  • adding cold shoulders to any lazy sunday look immediately makes it high fashion. i think thats stated in the old testament or something
  • Get a sweater dress. They’re cozy, form fitting, and will go great with the aforementioned sock boots 
  • If it hangs in a perfect silhouette its probably cursed and not worth your time.
  • that skirt you’ve always wanted is called a high waisted circle skirt
  • Short pleated skirts always look better in your head, but are difficult to balance in an outfit. try short shorts instead.
  • The sizes on lady clothes are completely nonsensical and will never mean the same thing between two different brands, so always get one size above and below your average estimate when using a dressing room.
  • If you have a lil boob make sure to pull it up properly into each cup of your bra.
  • The right bra can change your life. I know ppl say that a lot but its 100% TRUE. on that note…
  • There is ZERO shame in padding. If transmen can wear binders to feel valid you can wear butt pads to feel valid. 
  • Wedges are just as difficult to walk in as stilettos. Your first heel should be about an inch thick, three to four inches high, no platform. There are some high heeled boots that come with tracks on the bottom, which can also be helpful for getting your balance down. Practice by standing and shifting your weight. 
  • Kitten heels are a sham dont fall for it. 
  • Even if you completely disregard all of this advice and live out your days in sweat pants and a hoodie, you’re still a woman and cute as heck.

@prevanon but pansy is so mean! :o don't get me wrong I love YOUR pansy. But canon pansy is nasty af

Yeah, because the way she’s portrayed in the books is so miserably two-dimensional! It feels as though JKR was basically, “how can I write a female character in the most obnoxious, completely unlikeable way??” and I’m not wrong! :) JKR admitted herself that she (unfeministically) put everything she disliked about girls into Pansy’s being. Poor her! Pansy is pretty much the student Slytherin female lead, it’s such a shame she wasn’t given any character depth whatsoever, but even though canon Pansy is the flattest character imaginable, I so very strongly believe in her being more than that, perhaps deserving more than that, which makes fanon Pansy so much more appealing, naturally. I get that the Pansy we see in the books is a nasty empty space, but I kind of just… refuse to see her that way? :)

oh man your posts about jeremavinwood reminded me i have a prompt for them in my inbox. but man just?? ryan being the one the lads run to when they need help the most. the lads protecting ryan fiercely while he does the same with them. all of them sharing a huge bed together and snuggling together as they sleep. ryan and jeremy teaming up to make breakfast for everyone while michael drags gavin out of bed. so many good ideas with them man.

I love this a lot.

Yeah - I feel like the Lads love the other two gents (of course they do, they’re all “thick as thieves” - if you don’t mind the pun - and utterly devoted to one another. But they’re a bit scared of going to Geoff or Jack if they have a problem they know they’ll be in trouble for. It’s kind of being scared to go to a parent..

But Ryan? Ryan’s the perfect man to go to with a problem, especially a problem that can be solved with a good punch or a kick to the rear. He’s ready and willing to kick the ass out of anyone who would hurt his boys. If a pistol bullet needs to go between someone’s eyes, than so be it. He’ll put it there with a grin.

And the Lads will help Ryan too - they’re his most stalwart defense force. They’ll fight for him and they’ll die for him, if needed. He always looks great with his boys hanging off his arm, too.

And oh my godddddd. I love the idea of Jeremy and Ryan cooking breakfast, all peaceful and warm and cuddly. They tease each other and steal kisses over scrambled eggs, laughing as Gavin pouts and grumbles at being dragged out of bed. Then they kiss and cuddle and pet one another.

Yessss, give me all the good jeremavinwood.

❄️ The Hero and the Fairy ❄️ this piece has been a long time coming~ i originally posted the initial sketch back in December, in fact! so, if anybody still remembers that, and helped choose this piece’s direction - thank you! and i hope it turned out to your liking! and i also hope that everyone who is seeing it for the first time enjoys it as well!

- At least I don’t wet the bed…

- That was like three years ago!

I never actually noticed how tightly he was holding onto her. Looking at this I realize now that he wasn’t holding her to shield her from the flames, but to stop her from putting herself in harm’s way.

In the span of about two seconds, Alphonse recognized that he needed to both throw up a protective barrier between them and the fire, and stop Riza from getting herself killed attempting to protect Roy.

At 14 years old he picked up on the intimacy of Roy and Riza’s relationship and integrated Riza’s breakdown just moments prior into his understanding of her as a person, and then used that information to both recognize that she would act impulsively and take action to stop her from doing so. All in the span of approximately two seconds.

This kid is way smarter than anyone seems to give him credit for. He can think on his feet and make snap decisions, and evaluate people’s behavior really quickly. He can do all three at once.

More love for Alphonse Elric please.

Drawing Daisuga cuddles because omg I feel like poop and these two make everything better <3

#two very different relationships for shaw yet both so important #they both loved her so much but in different ways (one platonically and the other romantically) and its big because for someone that always thought something was wrong with her and no one would ever take the time to GET her #she ended up gaining two people that legit would’ve died for her and vice versa #they BOTH understood her and never judged her and loved her exactly the way she was #not to mention root and reese’s love for her even helped THEM bond in a way that made them start to care about each other #i just have a lot of feelings about these three tbh

demimink  asked:

can you give a run down on skintones?

PART ONE: COLOR SELECTION. 

In painting skin tones, a lot of the time I see people choose colors that are over-saturated or unbalanced. There isn’t really an exact art to this that I can explain—you just need to get a feel for what saturation balance you need for that particular skintone. Here are some examples of what I usually pick.

As you can see, I used different base colors (orange, reddish, yellow) for the skin shades in all three examples. The reason for this is because all skin tones have a different base color besides just Light, Medium, and dark. Some people divide them into categories of “warm” and “cool.” Pantone has some really good examples and references for this.

PART TWO: COLOR VARIATION.

Another big part about drawing and painting skin tones that a lot of people forget is how skin thickness affects color variation. The presence of bone, blood, and muscle underneath the skin affects its colors. This is especially noticeable on the face.

The colors here are a little exaggerated to show my point, but with a little adjusting and blending…

Voila! Subtle, but more realistic.

PART THREE: DETAILS.

Our skin is the largest organ on our body, and as our body’s first line of defense against the outside world, it’ll be covered with tiny details and imperfections. Things like sunburns, tans, freckles, scars, and facial hair all add character to your subject matter. Here are some examples!

TANS: Everyone tans differently, depending on your ethnicity and skin tone. Fair skinned folks tend to burn more than tan, which means you’ll need a more startling, eye-catching red. If you have a skin type that tends to tan more, the color will be more brown than red. For black skin tones, the tan is less red. (And while we’re on the subject: black people DO tan, so it’s important for you to put on sunscreen and be careful in the sun, too.)

Those are the areas that the sun tends to hit the most—and things like goggles, hats, and masks can change the shape of that area.

FRECKLES AND MOLES: Freckles are also products of the sun. Some people have freckles that stay year-round, while others have freckles that fade in the winter and return in the summer. Moles are skin cells that grow in a cluster instead of being spread throughout the skin. When exposed to the sun, they tend to darken. (Another note on skin health: if you have any oddly-shaped/colored moles, moles that have changed color, size, or shape, or anything of the sort, please check with your doctor!)

Freckles like to cluster around each other, sort of like stars, and they vary greatly in size. You can have a few freckles in one place, or a lot of freckles in multiple places. Most commonly freckled areas are your face, shoulders and neck, back, and forearms. 

FACIAL HAIR: Facial hair also affects the colors of the face. For simplicity’s sake we’ll be using black hair, as it is the most noticeable. Facial hair usually grows in these areas, and can make the skin look blueish/grayish because of the darker hairs beneath the skin. If your hair is red, this also very noticeable. 

END NOTE.

There you go! That’s about all I can think of at the moment for skin tones. As always, references and practice are your best friend (and so is this neat little trick that pheberoni has.) Good luck with your arting!

saturn transits

saturn is finally going to leave sagittarius in a month or two. its been a hard time for me and i am glad its coming to an end. now that saturns going to move into capricorn in 2018, those with capricorn, cancer, aries and libra as their sun, moon, or ascendant, will be going through a major saturn transit and will be feeling lots of pressure, anxiety, and melancholy. i just found a word document about some things i have learned about saturn transits or what to remember in order to “survive” them, maybe it could help some of you who are going to face this transit now? im thinking about turning it into a blogpost

i just have a lot of feelings about peter and mj so here we are. (part two can be found here)

  • peter is not looking forward to junior year
  • he somehow ended up signing up for like 3 different AP classes that he definitely did not remember signing up for
  • but being spiderman, he barely sleeps so his memory has been out of sorts lately
  • anyways so the first day of school rolls around and his first class is AP bio, and ned was his partner in regular bio but Ned is taking environmental science this year
  • and ned is peter’s only friend
  • so our spidey boy is without a lab partner, until michelle walks in right as the bell rings, drops her bag right next to Peter’s laptop on the lab counter, and begins reading catcher in the rye
  • she’s read it multiple times, just fyi
  • peter is shook
  • because he and michelle are friends now? i mean she’s caption of decathlon now that liz is gone and he’s sort of one of the best on the team and they are sort of partners there too
  • so peter rolls with it
  • and michelle ends up making AP bio fun, for example she and peter come up with names for everyone else in their class since they sit at the back of the room
  • flash is named: “dumbass”.
  • not original, but it works for them
  • AP bio is usually after lunch, and so often if there is a quick decathlon meeting during lunch, peter and michelle find themselves walking together
  • it’s not until peter realizes he’s low on webs that he realizes the problem
  • Michelle is sort of his ‘other ned’ if you will
  • basically, she never leaves him alone
  • and she doesn’t know he sneaks into the labs to make more webs
  • this is a situation, because how is peter supposed to distract her long enough to sneak into the chem labs?
  • cue ned the chair guy
  • peter gives ned one job, JUST ONE JOB, to keep michelle distracted during lunch so he can sneak into the chem lab, test out his new webs, and get out.
  • but the only thing ned can talk about is his new lego millennium falcon
  • and michelle is not into hearing ned talk about that for more than 5 minutes because he isn’t peter
  •  so somehow she escapes and finds herself wandering around the halls when she realizes where the hell is peter?
  • eventually she finds herself downstairs and she hears a strange noise from a nearby door. 
  • so she peeks into what looks like the chem lab and low and behold peter parker is shooting webs out of his hands
  • it clicks
  • the bruises, the sudden disappearances, decathlon, why spiderman was in DC out of all places…
  • next thing peter knows, michelle is in front of him, and she’s pissed
  • like, REALLY pissed
  • peter doesn’t catch much of what she’s saying besides the occasional “you could be killed” or “NED knows and i DON’T?” or “is this the damn stark internship?”
  • and peter is staring with his mouth open because even though she just found out his deepest darkest secret in the most obvious place (did he learn nothing from the aunt may incident?) her eyes are a gorgeous shade of brown and she’s kind of adorable when she’s mad
  • but that’s not that point
  • it takes peter the rest of lunch period to calm her down and to convince her not to tell anyone, not that she would, but you never know
  • and it takes him even longer to reassure her that he is perfectly safe and that the suit is very, very, reliable
  • she demands to see it, and peter refuses because they’re in the damn chem lab for god’s sake
  • eventually they head to AP bio, and Michelle doesn’t ask anymore questions. In fact, she doesn’t ask anymore questions for a while
  • peter thinks she forgot, or that she doesn’t care that much, but then a major accident happens in downtown in the middle of the night a few days later and spiderman is seen pulling people from a burning building, but no one saw spiderman come out before it collapsed. 
  • he skips school the next day because he’s “sick” and ned brings him his homework. he doesn’t ask about michelle, because he thinks that if she really doesn’t care after all, it’s better that he doesn’t know
  • he’s proven wrong – because when he does go back to school and walks into AP bio, Michelle launches herself into his arms in front of the whole class. 
  • and while afterwords she makes some joke about how peter saved their project that isn’t due until the end of the semester, peter starts to feel butterflies in his stomach. 
  • and maybe, just maybe, michelle feels them too
Speaking of freckles, I never thought I was a freckly person but I went outside for like two hours and suddenly my skin got invaded by a billion dots and it was really weird. Not like Phil who’s like ‘I’m white, I look like Voldemort *bam* I’m white but have brown spots everywhere like a leopard’. I just got little dots. Scary. But I love freckles. Freckles is one of those things where a lot of people feel insecure about them, especially when you’re younger and in school. But let me just say for the record: Freckles are beautiful. Like people with really freckly faces, you know what I’m talking about with really freckly cheeks. I know that some people see, you know, conventional, perfect, beige skin and they don’t like it but trust me, a lot of people like freckles, think they’re very beautiful and unique. If you have freckles, do not feel insecure. They’re like an upgrade. They’re like a bonus you unlock in a video game.

Quotes from Dan (50/?)

Freckles are so precious and a natural thing. Every little thing about you, even the things you might not love yourself, is lovely. This includes having little dots adorn your skin.

[Major Spoilers] “Follow your true feelings!”: My Musings on P5′s Wildcard Couple

Can we talk about Morgana’s astute observations regarding Akechi’s true feelings for Akira? Can we talk about how (Morgana’s words–not mine) Akechi’s smile when he was hanging out with Akira had been genuine? This boy– who had distanced himself from everyone, who had wrapped himself up in layers upon layers of lies that he wears like a second skin, who had made revenge his one and only goal in life – had also, in spite of himself, serendipitously found kinship in the one boy whom he has decided that he has to kill.

So since A LOT of people are watching The Loud House now because of the gay™ in it, I present to you:

List of Gay Things that Have Happened in The Loud House

- The biggest one of all:

- Their dad Lynn Sr showed feelings towards a guy (even though he’s married)

- Lincoln once thought that Bobby was cheating on Lori with a guy. And when asked about it, he didn’t get all defensive

- Lincoln once asked his friend Rusty a question and here’s how the convo went:

Lincoln: How would you like to dance?
Rusty: No thanks you’re not my type
Lincoln: Not with me. With girls
Rusty: Oh on second thought I’d rather dance with you

- Luna said that the female substitute teacher was “smokin”

- And most recently (on today’s episode) Luna sent a love letter to a girl named Sam

Conner knew from the beginning that the hardest part would be convincing his parents not to kill each other before the wedding even started.

RSVP is a timkon fancomic I’ve been steadily working on in-between comic projects. Obviously I have a lot of feelings about them and the Clex dynamic from Smallville. The story takes place in some frankenstein universe made of the comics and tv series.

Originally I was just going to letter the pencils and post them, but my pencils were so messy the words were getting lost. So I inked them and then colored them and SO I GUESS I AM DOING THIS NOW. Like the pencils, I’ll be posting this comic in 5-page parts. It’ll probably take me a while though OTL.

(Christ I write too much dialogue.)

Finished Parts: part one >>  part two  >>  part three

You can see all the pencils here: part one | part two | part three

Today (09/07/17) completes 5 years since Camren met. 5 years since the “Dang, she can sing. DANG, she’s pretty too!”, “Hey, I like your shirt”, “You’re the cuban girl!”. Who could ever know how much they would mean to each other. All of this could just be a “Laurmila” thing, but everything started to change when the touches, the hugs and holding hands started to happen. Especially the: “Who is your celebrity crush?” C: “Mine is Lauren”. L: “They call her Mila, I call her Camz”. C: “Yeah, ‘cause you’re special to me”. It didn’t seem just friendship with the pass of weeks. But, one day, Lauren told us what it was. “It’s Camren, yo”. It turned into one thing that no one could ever stop, not even Camila and Lauren. With the pass of the years, we got more and more reasons to believe that Camren was something real. And who could blame us? They started it, not us. We started to see the way that they looked at each other, how they seemed happy when they were together, the many evidences that appeared straight up to our faces. Maybe, especially Lauren, started to hate the thing that she created herself, and I don’t blame her. There was/is many people who went over the limits. But what I think it’s that they should stop for at least one day, seeing Camren as a sick thing, and start seeing how it may have changed many people lives. Especially mine. Camila and Lauren were the love that I needed in the moment that i needed the most. That’s ok too if they were just friends, ‘cause the love that they shared was something that made me feel better. I got happy everytime they hold hands, gave hugs, said/wrote beautiful things about each other. Camren made me feel alive, and never let me believe that this beautiful kind of love didn’t exist anymore. And it might have helped a lot of fans to accept their sexuality and themselves. That’s what the two of them wanted from everyone on the lgbt comunity, right? Camren, for sure, was a thing so fucking good for a lot of people, including me. They should, one day, see this way. I love Camila and Lauren so much, I’ll never want them to be hurt with anything we say about Camren. And I’ll never stop to shipp them, but I also don’t need to say anything about it for any of them if they don’t want to. But I truly believe, with all of my heart, that Camren was real. Idk if still is, but at some point, it was. We have seen them. And they seemed in love. How was that quote from Lauren’s tumblr? “We look at each other too long to be “just friends”. Camila and Lauren always gonna be a perfect couple. We know by the laughs together, how they admire and get each other. They’re like the sun and the moon. Different, and seems like a impossible love, but at the same time, perfect for each other. They complete each other. So, 5 years of Camren, and I’ll never let it go. I’m pretty happy in the Camren Island. Let’s keep the Camren Boat floating, always.
“The truth is that, maybe, we’ll never know for sure if Camren, as a couple, really existed. And if it didn’t, at least we created a pretty fucking good love story.” ❤🌹

quotes from the signs of how they view themselves and their signs

aries: “I’m opinionated and when something intrigues me or is brought to my attention I really like to research it and learn about it so I’m like super great to come to for advice. I can be really aggressive in a way like not physically but emotionally and I’m reckless. I like to have fun”

taurus: “umm im really closed off n not many people know the REAL me like no one really knows the inside me u know like i dont share my feels n like im really loving n caring n emotional n i can be kinda dramatic but like cancers overshadow us”

gemini: “well i think there are definitely ~two sides of me~ but i think it’s like that for everyone”

cancer: “the stereotype about us being like huge crybabies isn’t entirely true like i think i’m just as emotional as the next person but i feel like cancers are a lot stronger than people believe they are and we’re problem solvers too even though people generally see us as problem creators. i don’t think i’ve ever met a cancer that didn’t have a huge heart yknow like i’m super loving and caring and i think that more than being like crybaby emotional we’re lovey dovey emotional. great at giving advice bc we’re super logical and parental. of all the signs i’d say we’re the most similar to lawyers. we also talk a lot”

leo: “i say i don’t care what people think of me but i really do, i hate making other people upset idontknow anymore i was trying to be inspiring for you but that’s all i got”

sagittarius: “idk i don’t really care about anything like i’m laid back but i also care a lot about everything??? if you make me mad i can be really like cold towards you and i’ll make it known that i’m upset. i’m loving and caring and i protect the ones i love”

capricorn: “Capricorns are definitely hard workers and very goal oriented and do things that they set their minds too like everyone says but I also think many capricorns are sensitive and parental but also children at heart”
