Aaaaaaaaah holy shit uh hi I just wanted to say that your art is goals and that your style is so cute (I seriously have like most of it saved on my Photo Stream and I look at it when I need to cheer up?)! I was wondering how you draw your chibis (like in guidelines and stuff)? Also, would you have any tips for a beginning artist? Thank you so much!!!
oh !!! as far as a chibi tutorial, i’ve sorta done one! here u go!
as for tips for a beginning artist– i know it’s hard to think that you’re in the beginning stages of learning how to draw, or paint, or what have you, but!!! it’s very important to have patience, believe in yourself, and keep trying even when it’s difficult. being an artist is frustrating and draining and disappointing sometimes, but it’s all part of the experience! it will help you mold into the artist you want to be. ; v ;
also– i definitely know what it’s like to get those feelings of inadequacy and compare yourself and your art to the skills and style of those people you admire. that’s totally natural!! and sometimes we just can’t help it. ;;; but! becoming an artist is a very personal and individual journey. you can’t compare your skills to others, as we all learn and grow differently - like i always say, art is an expression of the self. so, really, there is no way to replicate exactly how another artist interprets things– because they’re putting their own essence onto the paper. and you gotta put yours!
basically what i’m saying is! art is very important and very good. sometimes it’s hard to get your feelings out with words, so you use artistic expression! i’m really not taking my own advice here so don’t be like me BUT don’t worry about not being as “good as” anyone else! your journeys and experiences as an artist are exclusive and personal and very special. it will be full of trial and error but you will get where you want to be in time. ; u ;
i hope this helped! and that u have a wonderful day. xoxoxoxo
Well, the most you can do is practice, when it comes to drawing big boobs, and bellies, and such! Just... widen an' thicken and whatnot. And larger boobs don't act like balloons, they're more like sandbags, so larger ones have more weight to em, and more sag, etc etc. It's probably super easy to find tutorials, if you reeeeally wanna get down to it! (Plus tbh I think catmom would look cute with some pudge)
Pudgy moms are pretty great but we all know who takes the cake
I don’t think this exists yet but I didn’t look that hard so if it does I’m sorry. Based on a comment someone made on my last drawing about Yuuri and Victor just adopting the entire cast (the cute cast members anyway). Probs going to be a series!
“I know how to play a few on a guitar,” Keith offered. “I don’t own one, though.”
Shiro could see it. Keith, sitting in a corner or a bench somewhere, the roughened pads of his fingers on the taut strings. Maybe he didn’t sing, but did he hum?
“…Something on my hands?”
“Hm? I was just thinking you can see the callouses–” he reached for Keith’s hand, cupping it in his palm so he could see them better. “Your fingers are hard, right at the places where they’d meet the strings.”
The motion had been so easy that it took the soft hush for him to realize what he’d done. Keith’s hand was warm in his own, fitting so easily like it was only natural to be there.
A cat and mouse like game between Percy and Annabeth where Percy keeps trying to catch Annabeth under the mistletoe but she’s somehow always one step ahead. Every time she side-steps the mistletoe or moves it before Percy realizes, she just smiles at him innocently. Until Percy finally gives up and Annabeth comes up to him, noses just inches apart as she smiles and raises her arm above their heads, holding mistletoe in her fingers. She kisses him and Percy is too flustered to even notice that Annabeth’s face is bright red and it’d taken her literal hours just to work up the courage to do that.
After having so many of my plans fall through, my incredible and amazing friend collab’d with me to draw a Marcy that came out better than I could have ever hoped for. Since I absolutely love the idea that Jake knits all his friends cute sweaters during the winter, I decided I wanted to make a picture of Marcy wearing a sweater that Jake made for her (featuring his cute face!). Merry Christmas @amanda-fluffire, I hope you like it!! :)
And thank you so much to @soupery for organizing this! I know it must be really stressful but just know that we all love and appreciate all the work you do <3
Fic where Jimin is deaf and he just starts to mumble Yoongi’s name and he REALLY tried and its so cute that Yoongi just wants to hug the boy and cuddle
Yoongi’s hands froze where they stood, fingers still lightly pressed to the warn out keyboards of his laptop. He didn’t know if he had just imagined what he think he’d just heard or if he did, in fact, actually hear it, so he remained still, waiting, anticipating.
Either his imagination was wilder than he had thought, he was going crazy, or the person behind him, his angel, his sunshine, the only reason he actually got up every morning, the person who would never hear the world around him was actually calling him.
Slowly, as if if he were too quick the magic would disappear, Yoongi turned around with his chair, his eyes immediately finding the fidgeting figure of Jimin. Small, weak, precious Jimin, drowning in one of Yoongi’s big, black sweaters and the blanket from their bedroom, with messy hair and puffy cheeks.
Yoongi nodded, barely controlling his emotions, quietly motioning for the younger to come closer. To come to him. And when he did, he pulled him down into his lap and waited.
He was used to the loud “Yoah!” every time a bug managed to sneak up behind Jimin and he had to call his knight in shining armor. He was used with unintelligible mumbling that sometimes sneaked from between his lips when he was signing too fast or too excited. To quiet giggles and loud moans and squeaked yelps.
But he had never, in his wildest dreams, imagined he would hear Jimin even just attempt to say his name. Ever.
