I want you to know that I’m not mad. I’m just sorry. About everything. I don’t want you to get hurt at all. And I don’t wanna lose you. Just make sure you heat up some real food. Not just Eggos. And I want you to eat all the peas, even if they’re mushy and gross. And… I will be home soon.

{APH rarepair week: day 4 :HISTORY} 

When it comes to history, the first pairing that comes to mind for me is this tragic combo that I call my OTP. 

Spain and Austria had a complicated marriage. How could it not be, considering the times? But I like to think that they loved each other passionately and there were a lot of tender moments in their union. 

One of these moments might have been that Austria’s cross necklace was actually a gift from Spain. But not just any gift - It meant the world to him, because it had belonged to someone very important for Antonio and was actually a “pair” necklace to his own.

She texted me, ‘Holy crap, Sofia. This is amazing. I remember when we were in fifth grade and you did a project on the U.S. national team and said you wanted to play on their team.’

I honestly read that and said, 'Holy crap, that’s true.’

I think every girl who has this dream will understand that it means everything. It’s a surreal feeling because you’ve been working so hard toward this. Just to get a call-up is such an opportunity.

Last Chapter Update

Whoo. My week has been packed and I am very tired and ouchy. I also just spent the last hour and a half doing some major Home organizing and crunched  some numbers according to my plot outline:

There are 57 drawings remaining; 27 of those are absolutely essential and must be included in the last chapter. I just counted my drawings and I have 30 (almost 31!) finished.

Which brings us back to my original claim back in August that the last chapter would have 60 drawings (31+27 = close enough). The drawings that aren’t essential would be adorable and funny, but I think I will have to omit them since… Since I don’t want to post the last chapter in 2021.

Soooooo according to my calculations, since it takes me about 4 days (14-24 solid hours) to complete one drawing, it will take me 108 days to finish the last essential 27…. AKA, 3.5 months. Factoring in family dinners and other distractions, I’ll round up to four months. So…

New estimate: Chapter 18 will be posted in late June.

A few have already started proclaiming their disapproval/lost interest due to the time I’ve spent already. I really want you, my beautiful and kind readers, to know that it pains me dearly to delay the last chapter as long as I am, but I’m adamant about ending Home right. These drawings are very warm, colorful and detailed, and it will wrap up everything in the best, fuzziest, happiest way.

Thank you for your endless patience ♥

So this might seem like a random question but.. how do you always have your colors go together so well? It just always seems like you have these beautiful soft color schemes and everything goes together just right. I'm horrible with matching tones together and whatnot and was wondering if you had any tips on.. well, color schemes in general? And maybe how to make them really bring out the emotion you want to evoke :]

I’m sorry it’s going to be a hella long post! Be prepared!

I always find it easier to try to find Dirk’s skin color first, because he’s really white skinned and helps set a color base for the ambiance!
Here, a quick gif of the process!

And the final palette used for this illustration:

But my palettes changes always a lot when I’m painting, let’s just try something together to illustrate my point! Here’s another palette that I like!

First I do flat colors to test things out (especially when I don’t know where I’m going!)

I ended up with an illustration where the character are lighter than the background (So, the opposite of my original illustration)

Here’s the final result!

Feel free to try those palettes to experiment! And modify them if needed!

Hi Rachel! I want to start selling my stuff but i'm generally VERY anxious about the whole ordering and shipping process and bc im worried that everything will go wrong?? So what i want to ask is; do you have any tips or pointers that you find useful for someone like me? Sorry if its been asked before. You are an incredible inspiration to me! Looking through your works makes me wanna hustle x999 times more. In color, anatomy and just everything 😭😭😍

Hi anon! I understand what you feel haha, initially, it was really scary for me as well! But here’s a few things I’ve learned overtime!

1) Quantity
Start small! When ordering things like acrylic charms/stands/pouches etc, you’ll want to look for suppliers with a low minimum order. Some places will have a minimum order of 50 and some will have it as low as 1! When I first started out, 15-20 is usually the quantity I go for (still do with certain items) This is especially important if you are low on funds because these items tend to be on the costlier side of merch making. 

Prints on the other hand, are cheaper to make so you could experiment with the quantity a little more! Though from my own personal experience, prints do better at cons than online. Whatever it is, as long as you don’t spend your last penny on merch making!

2) Social Media
Post it everywhere! The more platforms you use, the more people will see! (Though im notoriously bad at this orz)

3) Shipping
Ask your local post office what the available options for shipping various items are! Some countries will charge you differently for bulky items (charms/stands) compared to flat items (postcards, zines) even if they weigh the same. So do some research before you price your shipping cost.

Tracking is not always included so you’ll have to pay extra for it! Don’t forget to include this in your shipping cost if tracking is a thing you want! For me personally, I pay for tracking out of my own pocket because I don’t want the shipping cost at the checkout page to exceed a certain number but its totally my own preference. People tend to be understanding about pricier shipping cost especially if you’re shipping internationally! 

4) Packing 
The fun part. If you’re only mailing out a few items, getting envelopes from your local stationary store works just fine. You can even get em from your post office! But if you’re mailing a larger quantity, you’ll want to source for envelopes in bulk! For zines, if you’re in the United States, some companies sell rigid stay-flat cardboard mailers! These will keep your zines from denting. Alternatively, you could mail them in regular bubble mailer with a backing board. 

For acrylic stands, sandwich it between 2 backing boards and mail it in a bubble mailer! (it still might break but only a teeny tiny small percentage) If you can find a cheap supplier for boxes, thats even better! Locally (Malaysia), I’ve found a place that does custom boxes for a little more than a bubble mailer. 

5) Communication
Give your customers an estimate on when they can be expecting their items. Usually you can get this information off your postal service’s website but its not always accurate. You can encourage your customers to let you know when they’ve received something so you can better gauge how long it takes for something to arrive at different parts of the world. 

Items do get lost in the mail so keep a few extras of everything in case you need to send replacements! 

6) Additional fees
Paypal takes a cut out of every transaction! Its 6% i think. So however you price your items, be aware that you won’t get 100% of the money. If you plan on using Tictail, Tictail also takes a cut! A huge chunk of 10% that could eat into your shipping cost. This only happens when a buyer finds your items through the tictail market place so as much as you can, try to encourage people to click to your store through the link you provide instead of searching through tictail. 

7) Out of sight out of mind! 
Breathe! Try not to obsess over it! The whole process from drawing down to mailing it out and the subsequent message from your customer that may or may not come will span over several weeks so you’ll have breathing space! The emails about missing items or broken items will come, but so will tweets about people happy to receive their goods!

It can all be a little overwhelming (it is to me!) but try not to stress over it! Don’t keep refreshing your store to see if you sold anything and don’t keep refreshing your email to wait for someone to ask about their missing items. Check it maybe once a day but thats it! Spend the rest of your time watching anime or playing a game or even drawing something new! 

As long as you are nice and honest with your customers (AND DON’T SINK ALL YOUR MONEY INTO THE INITIAL COST OF MERCH MAKING) everything will work out in the end! 

Okay i don’t know if i answered your ask at all but this is all I could think to say for now. Hope this helps 😣

How do you create your notes when you're studying with duolingo?

Well, honestly, I just write everything down 😂😂 I try to color code it because I’m a visual learner! I take my times with the lessons cause I want to make sure I memorize the set before continuing ! Here are my notes and please excuse the sloppy handwriting and bad symbols LMAO, I’m planning on having a separate journal to keep them all together but for now, here is my rough drafts!

Hi I love your sims and your blog so much and I wanted to do a sim request thing. I've never done it before so if I'm all wrong I'm sorry lol. I love your sim style so I have no very specific requests, just a cutesy/artsy looking girl with a slight obsession with the color green and brown hair, also a private download would be cool. Other than that I have no preference. Thank you so much for everything and congrats! You deserve so many followers!

Hello yes, I am not good with words so this might sound weird but I just wanted to pop in and say that I love your work so much. All your art is amazing, the lines are so clean, and the way you color everything is absolutely beautiful. Your style is wonderful and if I had money, I would for sure support your patreon and buy so much stuff from your shop like honestly it's amazing. Okay, sorry, this probably sounds kind of weird by now bc I'm pretty awkward so I'll just go bye!!

No problem! I really appreciate your lovely compliment <3 Thank you so much!

anonymous asked:

hello there!! I have a question to ask and with the POC talk lately I figured Id ask sorry haha. My question isn't exactly a question but a reach out because I don't know how to feel sometimes as an /adopted/ person of color. Ive gone through some of what others go through, but just; differently; and sometimes when I write I feel.. Insensitive or I feel like I'm alone. Wrong or different. // and tumblr asks are..Small. I know I'm being vague, I'm sorry- but I want to reach out. More anons? DMs?

I’m so sorry asking this of you even when you’re going through so much. I just wanted to reach out somehow and.. I guess I rambled a bit. And I want to give you a proper thank you for everything. I love your writing and your confidence in your convictions. So yeah- thanks.. And sorry, again, about the blab.

No apologies, fam. And thanks for following my extra crazy ass in the first place~

Like… I always feel a certain type of way about POC adopted into non-POC households and the isolation that you can experience by just being in that kind of situation. I’m not adopted and I had the luxury of growing up in Detroit where I went to schools and such surrounded by my peers (even though I still had loads of internalized self-hatred that I won’t even begin to touch right now as that’s a thesis in and of itself), but I feel for people like you and what I assume to be the basis of your situation. Hell, I feel for my eldest niece right now who wishes she was lighter-skinned and skinny because she lives in the suburbs where all her classmates are white with long flowing hair and I have to drill into her head while I’m here that lighter =/= more beautiful. But it’s an uphill battle.

Feel free to DM me, actually, if you just wanna talk or vent or whatnot. I can go AWOL on messages sometimes because of my schedule and inherent inability to stay focused, but I don’t mind being an ear. Stay strong, okay? ❤️

anonymous asked:

Ah sorry, I'm just to excited! XD Uhm, well, I mean the shadows and the lumosity, and / or the overlays you use in your drawings :3

This is a super super brief look into my standard coloring method for simple things! :D I’m gonna use my most recent upside down Ford as an example since I have the file handy. Everything except transparency done in SAI.

I’ve done similar tutorials on older works here and my methods haven’t changed too much for this style. Lemme know if you want anymore clarification!

Is it just me..or everything seems kinda harder in last two weeks..?

I feel like when I’m talking with people that I’m..judging them or something… When I just want to stand up then I can see everything in purple color.. Am I already going crazy, because I’m talking with myself when people doesn’t writing me back or when the battery died and I can’t even listening to the music.. *sigh* this’ll never ends…
