Hey there! Absolutely love your art, your rendering abilities and compositions are incredible. Do you have any tips from someone trying to improve their painting? Artists who want to transition from relying on lines to improving their color and painting skills? Ramadan Mubarak and thank you!

Hey sis, Ramadhan Mubarak to you too!

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with relying on lineart because I’m still doing it O:

First and foremost, I am a class A hoarderrrrr. I love to save a ton of classical paintings to my library. If you want to practice rendering stuff more realistically I suggest doing material studies >

Just take any material you can think of and imagine it as a 3D sphere. My lecturer introduced this practice to me when I struggled with my paintings. I needed more tutorials and most tutorials I found were too advanced for me. (Most of them just straight away paint and I already suck at painting so why man why)

And then I found THIS tutorial! It helped me a whole lot during my college struggles.

It basically copies the step-by-steps of rendering a 3D model but it can also be implemented in Illustration as well! I really liked this tutorial because it’s an actual “step-by-step” so it’s like painting training wheels. I stuck with this process for quite some time and after awhile I grew more confident in painting and THEN I started exploring styles.

I don’t know what sort of art style you’re going for but the artists above that I’ve listed have helped improve my paintings even further. If you wanna be good at painting, then you should look at great art examples. I can spend hours just looking and studying their pieces. I’m no master but I would like to paint as good as they do someday ( ;^^)

I hope this helps and good luck! :D

A new chapter has commenced! ok. So uh colors are the bane of my existence I’m pretty sure. I tried to go with a color palette, but then I deviated away from that, and then I took a break to cry on the floor in fetal position because COLORS DON’T LIKE ME! Well uh they aren’t actually that bad, but I do struggle a bit with them. And that’s part of the reason I’m doing this comic in color; it’d be much easier to just make it black and white, but I want to improve my coloring.

Also I hope you like Undyne’s little invoking of Mettaton :)

Btw if you want to make a comic dub of this, please go ahead! I totally encourage it. Just please give credit to me and unrestedjade.

THANKS <3 let me just clarify this is a 5 month difference and I don’t know how to feel about it anyway I pretty much just figured out what I want to go for I’ve been having style issues actually but this is smth I’m ok with, idk why I couldn’t mess w different brushes or go anything above flat colors BUT I HOPE I KEEP IMPROVING WOW

yeah I’m trying smth different! they are softer but mostly bc I use alot of blur, which really smooths everything out and makes it look nice.

believe me it makes me question my morals too. everyone needs to look like a kpop boy haha

I can’t believe my self-indulgent doodles are able to insp you IT’S NOT WEIRD AT ALL if anything it’s sweet & ily, thanks sm I’m still not used to being anyone’s insp & idk I’m just glad I could be that for you!

I LOVE YOU are you sure bc all I draw is bad memes ok but once you finish smth I’d love to read it, if my art was insp I bet it’s super funny haha

Commissions are still smth I have to figure out but it means alot that you’re willing to do that for me! idk I just think I should get better first before commissions, so I’ll keep holding them off until I improve a bit.

Apps to Help You Destress

Hey there friends! Here’s a list of iOS apps that will help you sleep better and relax. Studying hard is great, but your body needs rest, as do you! So go ahead, take a deep breath, and get the relaxation you deserve. xo!

*Pillow: (FREE) This is a sleep-tracking alarm clock; you leave your phone by your pillow/next to you when you sleep and it records you n stuff and helps you determine when it is best for you to wake up to feel refreshed!! I highly recommend this, it’s amazing and the design is so pretty!

*Binaural: (FREE) Yo this app is rad. It helps you relax, meditate, sleep, and even concentrate!! You pick a certain beat, frequency, and just listen. It has color themes (which are so pretty btw) and you can set a timer! 

Sleepio: (FREE) This app is a sleep-improvement program, meant to teach you to overcome poor sleep! I haven’t tried it yet, but it looks very nice. These apps have a minimalist, clean design, my fave thing ever!

*Thunderspace: (FREE) This is the best I want to cry I LOVE this app. It’s like rainymood, but there’s different types of rain sounds. The ambience of the sounds is stellar. Seriously, it’s free, get it!! P.S. you can set the flash on your phone and there’s lightning! Feels like you’re in the tropics if you choose that rain sound, it’s amazing. 

To Bed: (FREE) This app is like your momma! It reminds you, based on your age and wakeup times, to go to sleep. It’s your bedtime alarm, basically! For those of you who don’t really have self-control when it’s time to sleep, this is perfect! I’m pretty good at falling asleep quick because I’m always so tired, but I would definitely recommend this app.

*Sleep Better: (FREE) This app is similar to Pillow, but it’s another option for a sleep monitoring app. You can track your daytime activites and see how it affects your sleep cycle! The design is clean and contemporary and neat. It’s pretty rad!

TaoMix: (FREE) If you would like to create your own ambient sounds, this app is for you! Pretty darn cool. You can add bird sounds, rain, thunder, wind, water, and even other animals. There’s more than 45 high quality sounds you can work with to make thousands of mixes. Have fun with it!

*8tracks: (FREE) You may know about this app, but it’s the best thing ever ever ever. I can only listen to music when I’m cranking out essays for whatever reason, otherwise I can’t concentrate, so I love using 8tracks for that, and for chilling before bed. 

* means I currently use the app and love it! the others are ones I plan on trying!

I hope you all enjoy these apps! Feel free to ask me anything, whether it be study related, you’d just like general advice, or someone to talk to!

Please feel free to request more!!!

Star Boys ⭐ ~ step-by-step process of >this< piece (^   v ^) <3 click through for minor captions!

since Tumblr can only hold eight photos, here’s my process reduced to eight steps. there’s a lot more fussing and changing and adjusting that goes in, but this feels like a good overview.

and here’s some bonus back story! X3 hehe~ i was really frustrated with my work last week… i honestly felt like maybe it was just time to move on and do something totally different. like it was just time to pack in my character work and go back to being a graphic designer. i kept starting new things over and over and over again and throwing them away. i felt very defeated. i was drowning my sorrows in coke zero and k-pop videos when i decided to just draw some self indulgent garbage to make myself feel better, regardless of how it might turn out looking. and i had no idea that it’d turn into this! XD

so when you’re thinking~ “why Pidgy… why did you dress those beautiful boys so stupidly?!?!” (7O  [  ]O)7 it was the k-pop dood! i was under the influence! have you seen the ridiculous/awesome clothes they wear?!?!? it’s FABULOUS! and i didn’t start drawing this thinking that i’d ever post it! HAHAHA!!! but it just worked out so smoothly! (O  v O) <3 and i felt myself feeling again like i knew i could - and new i wanted to - improve! I AIN’T GIVING UP YET!!!! (>   A <)

so yeah… (^   v ^);;; it’s a bit silly, and very colorful! hahaha! but~ i really tried my best to do new things and put my best foot forward… so i hope some of you enjoy it! i still have so much more i want to do! (O    w O) <3 <3 <3

mutantgurls  asked:

How about an au where lance is galra and has to deal with prejudice from the people he's saving.

How about just stabbing me right now

Lance was proud of his heritage, he was Galra. He was part of one of last pure blood in the entire species. Lance was proud of that. Growing up he thought that being Galra was the best thing that could’ve happened to him. He was mistaking. 

-

Lance was around 14 when he realized that the Galra wasn’t what he was taught in school. By ready journals from his father (who was a high ranking soldier) Lance learned that he had been lied to his entire life. Lance couldn’t believe what he read. They killed people. They destroyed planets. For what? Zarkon?

Lance didn’t sleep that night. 

-

Lance was 17 when he ran away from home. He couldn’t deal with the lies anymore. He couldn’t deal with the fact that his father was the only in his family that knew the truth. He couldn’t deal with listening to one more ‘proud Galren’ speech. 

-

After bouncing from planet to planet Lance found himself as the Blue Paladin. He could tell that Allura wasn’t happy that Blue chose him, but no one had ever seen a stronger bond between paladin and lion before.  

Lance eventually learned to deal with Allura’s hard stare and unapproachable personality. At least Coran eventually opened up to him. 

Allura wasn’t the only aliens to jump the gun on Lance. It was not uncommon for Lance to have to dodge weapons from people that they saved. It also wasn’t uncommon for people to run inside the nearest builden they saw when Lance walk down a street with the other paladins. 

Lance eventually broke. 

-

Lance was flying back from a particularly hard mission. The city that they saved held a party in Voltrons name, however they “forgot” to invite the right leg. 

Lance sat in Blue while the other paladins have fun at their party. He was the first one to take off when the other paladins reached their lions. 

Allura’s voice blasted through the coms, “Great work out there paladins! Shiro you did an ex…” 

Lance tuned her out, she did this after every mission.  She would compliment everyone on what they did right but only criticize Lance on what he needed to work on. 

“Lance? Did you hear me? You can’t fly that rough with the blue lion. You’ll end up damaging her.” 

“Yes Princess.”

“I do not wish to schedule extras practices for you, but I will. You need to improve your skills so you are a valuable member of Voltron.” 

Lance snapped. “With all do respect Princess but can you stop? Every mission I have to deal with stares and people running away from me, all because of my skin color. They see purple and immediately run or treat me like garbage.” Lance swallowed. “What did I ever do to hurt you? The only people I have ever hurt is my family. That’s only because I left them without an excuse. So yes Princess I will fly better and continue to improve myself so I can kill Zarkon and leave you alone just like you want.” Lance turned off his coms. 

A few minutes later Lance landed Blue in her hanger and just sat there shaking. Allura enter the hanger but Blue activated her barrier. She wanted to protect from her pilot from anymore pain. 

*Cries* 

I love Galra Lance tbh 

I hope you like it!

Thank you for this!

Help get me home

So despite the politics of the nation, I need to get back home to America. I moved to Sweden to be with my fiancé just over a month ago and the way things are going here, I don’t think it’s going to work out. Relationship is now bordering on the abusive side, and since I have no income (I’m unable to get a job with the temporary residence permit I have), I’m coming to Tumblr for help. Any support, even in the form of reblogs would be appreciated. I have not drawn in quite some time, so I apologize in advance for any inconsistencies with the samples.

I just wanted to say, as a black woman who doesn't see much cosplay by POC in general, I'm really happy to see you show it doesn't matter your skin color, you can cosplay anyone. One day I hope to be as amazing as you and cosplay whoever even if my skin is too dark.

yeah it doesn’t at all, I’ve found some other black cosplayers who are literally amazing at what they do and give me hope that i can improve and that there will be this inclusive community that’s accepting 

Some stuff I would love to see in Sonic Forces

I HAVE IDEAS AFTER THE HYPE SO HERE WE GO

-Along with Eggman having basically destroyed the world, I would love to see the concept of roboticizing brought back from the SatAM series in some form. I think it would fit in great with this new post-apocalyptic thing we’ve got going! And we already have the idea of a “resistance” built up similarly to the Freedom Fighters in SatAM so roboticizing would be amazing to see, and build up Eggman’s villainous deeds as even more threatening to our heroes.

(Would also love to see the name Robotnik brought back but let’s face it, it ain’t happenin)

-Some decent writing for the plot. I have high hopes, but the Sonic franchise isn’t exactly known for good writing. I really want to see some good dialogue and development for everyone in the game and while some may disagree and say that gameplay matters more, these characters are so beloved and amazing and I think Sonic and friends have way more potential for good storytelling than they are given credit for! (See the Archie Sonic comics pls). As good as Sonic Generations was its story was REALLY underwhelming for what was presented and I think that it should really be worked on for Forces. I’m pretty sure it’s been made clear that the world has become like this because of Sonic’s failure to stop Eggman. I really want to see some character development around this!

(i.e. please dark SEGA give me that angsty Sonic ;P)

-SILVER. THE FRIGGIN HEDGEHOG. C'mon now yall. Burning post-apocalyptic world, alternate timelines, this is quite literally Silver’s territory! I think he’s a great character and with more work done on him he can potentially have great gameplay too! I’m so done with this wasted potential of a character to just become an “IT’S NO USE” punchline (as funny as it is hehe). And we’ve already seen improvement in his boss battle in Sonic Generations, I really think that can be built upon and redeem Silver in a way that he deserves.

-A decent final boss. I’m a bit wary of this one. Generations, Lost World and even Colors in my opinion, had some of the weakest final bosses to come up in the franchise. Personally I’m expecting the final boss to be on the magnitude of Unleashed and the Adventure games.

-I do not want a third entity to be a major contributing factor to Eggman’s success and general villainous actions. We’ve been seeing this a lot lately. The idea of the “true” villain being something like Dark Gaia, Time Eater, etc etc. I think these concepts really steal Eggman’s spotlight away. What I’m saying is, let Eggman be a villain to his fullest potential. The guy has an IQ of 300 after all, let him put that intelligence to better use! I want to see him truly outwit Sonic all on his own (like the opening cutescene in Sonic Unleashed, which I LOVE by the way), and succeed in taking over the world without some third party helping him and eventually turning on him.

-An interesting hubworld. I dunno about you guys but I’d love to casually traverse that apocalyptic clusterfudge of a universe the gameplay trailer showed us! Just keep it small like Unleashed’s hubworlds and maybe add some interesting inhabitants or sidequests and you’re golden! I wouldn’t mind not having a hubworld but I would still like one :D

That’s about all I’ve got for now! Feel free to add your thoughts!

Warnings: None

   In an attempt to stop your bad habit of writing on walls, when you were five, your brothers had attached a small chalkboard to your door. You became so fascinated by the chalk and the way the colors looked on your door, you had stopped drawing on the other walls in the bunker. However, this did not stop the smiley faces on the furniture. Even though the habit of marking everything in your path with marker stopped, your doodles on the board did not. You grew up drawing sketches, or putting messages on the outside of your door.

   You were a pretty positive kid, considering the life you were growing up in. The messages on the board normally reflected your happiness. Your brothers daily routine involved checking the board as well. The image and saying changed daily. You would have it up before Sam came back from his run, and before Dean woke up in the morning. An assortment of colors and fonts would show the boys what mood, and what the day would be like with their little sister. It was never, ever left blank in the seven years you had had it.

   Sam walked past your room, glancing over to see that last night’s message was still the same. He decided to shrug it off, thinking maybe you were tired from staying up and studying. He went about his morning just as usual, giving it no other thought. Later, Dean passed by your door after having lunch. He looked over towards your door, seeing that the message was still the same as last night’s. He stopped and gave the door a good, hard look. He walked down the hall, trying to shrug the strange feeling off.

   When it came to dinner, the boys sat at the table. You were nowhere to be seen. They waited for you, when finally Sam decided to go get you. They both hadn’t seen you all day, and it was unlike your normal self to avoid them. The message board was changed, but this time it had a little rain cloud drawn on it. He squinted as he read the little caption.Leave food outside the door. He quickly went back to the kitchen.

   “Dean, I think there is something wrong with Y/N,” he said. Dean looked up from his plate, “She’s probably just out of cherry lip gloss again Sammy,” he smirked . Sam rolled his eyes, “No Dean, the message board has a sad little sketch. I think something is seriously wrong”. Dean dropped his burger, and stood.

    They both went back to your room, but this time the board was completely blank. They glanced at each other, both showing looks of worry and furrowed brows. Dean opened the door slowly, and Sam followed. They came to find you laying face down on your bed. Books were scattered everywhere, along with lose papers and pens.

   “Y/N, what’s going on in here?” Dean asked. You didn’t respond, just stayed put. “Uh, Y/N, would you mind facing us at least?” Sam asked. You groaned, and pulled yourself up. When they finally got a look at your face there were tear stains and red, puffy eyes. “Y/N/N what’s wrong?” Sam asked, giving you his classic puppy eyes as he hopped over the little piles on your floor. You sighed, and wiped at your eyes. “I can’t think of any more quotes for my board,” you replied. You played with the ends of your sleeves as a smile cracked across Dean’s face. “Baby girl are you telling us you’re crying over the chalk board?” he tried not to laugh. You nodded, “It’s not funny!”. Sam also cracked a smile, “It is a little bit”. They both started chuckling as you groaned and laid back down.

   “Y/N why don’t you just look online?” Sam asked. “Yeah, use that phone for something other than texting,” Dean snickered. You sat up again, and gave a small smile, “I guess I could try that. These books are kinda useless,” you pushed a piece of hair from your eyes. Sam almost fell off the bed. Dean sat on the other side of you, and gave your hand a little squeeze. “You know, if you start feeling pains in your-,” Sam started but both Dean and yourself gave him a horrified look. “Okay, okay, just making sure this wasn’t caused by mother nature’s gift. I know it’s usually an emotional time of the month”. You rolled your eyes, “I’ll make sure to put it on the board if it happens.” “Please don’t,” Dean squawked.

   Your brothers helped you clean up the mess, and from then on the message board was never empty again. It did every once in a while inform them on when you needed some ice cream and the heating pad however.

Essays

Pairings: Enjolras x reader

Summary: College!AU. Enjolras is stressed but that is not always a bad thing, especially when it brings up new arrangements.

Warnings: none!

A/N: thank you all again for the support! I’m relatively new to writing here on tumblr and i’m still trying to get the hang of it! English is not my first language so i’m sorry about the mistakes you’re probably going to find! Feedback is always appreciated so that I know how I can improve :) if you just want to speak with me, be my friend, suggest me something to write or whatever you know where to find me! It’s always a pleasure!

Ps. those little sentences in italics are Enjolras thoughts!

(y/e/c) = your eyes color

Originally posted by romulanale

Enjolras was swamped in work. It was quite difficult to try and balance everything between essays, various homework and the incoming meeting in which he was supposed to give yet another speech.

And if that wasn’t enough, his roommates decided to give a party, more or less. Actually, it’s not like he could understand what was really happening in the other room, he could only hear a very loud music. VERY loud. Oh, yes, and someone was laughing. VERY loudly, yet again.

This is how Enjolras found himself out of his apartment with all his books and notes after having yelled at Grantaire, who was probably too drunk to even acknowledge him.

Ok, think Enj, where to go?

It wasn’t like he couldn’t go to the library. The problem was that he was in his pyjamas, too angry to even get changed before slamming the door shut. He didn’t even put on shoes and now his bright red socks were in plain sight.

Wait! (Y/n)!

Enjolras’ eyes lightened up at the sudden realisation: (Y/n) has always been his friend and she wouldn’t abandon him now, would she?

His feet carried him right in front of the girl’s apartment which was in the same building but on another floor. He was a bit nervous but knocked nonetheless and after only a few minutes he was graced with the beautiful - wait Enj, get it together - smile of his (Y/n). No, wait, not his like his his.

“Hey, Enj! What brings you here?” asked the girl cheerfully, leaning on the door.

“Hey, ehm, Grantaire is giving another kinda party and I need to study. Can I crash here for a few hours?” he replied nervously.

(Y/n) laughed, shaking her head. “Grantaire’s getting drunk again, you better check on him later…but for now, come on in!”

“Thanks freckles.” Relaxing, Enjolras smiled and winked at her, passing the door with all his things.

“Do you want something?”

(Y/n) was in the small kitchen while Enj was positioning all his books on the little table in the main room. He had a clear view of (Y/n) from his position.

“No, thanks, I’m good.”

“Ok, tell me if you need anything” and with a smile she left the kitchen, going towards her room.

She was always so kind and Enjolras really liked it. Most people tended to keep him at a distance because he was always too immersed in his work but not her. Never her. She had been welcoming since day one. She even had the courage to actually shout at Enjolras, a thing no one did in a very long time because apparently he was too intimidating.

He was intrigued by this girl.

It was only after a little time that (Y/n) returned and sat at the table, right in front of Enjolras, who was watching her every move. She had all her books so she was probably going to study with him. Suddenly Enjolras really liked this new arrangement.

“I thought I could study with you, is that ok?” asked (Y/n) with a small voice.

Enjolras beamed, “Sure!”

For almost three hours the apartment was full of silence and occasionally small talk. It was at a certain point that things changed: Enjolras looked up from his finally finished essay and he felt overwhelmed. (Y/n) was really beautiful. She was fully concentrated on her work, her pencil between her fingers and her eyebrows furrowed. Her hair seemed almost ethereal in that light. He didn’t know what to do, he never felt that way and suddenly he needed to spend more moments like this with her. Just to have the pleasure to see her in that particular light. Just that.

“(Y/n)?” the word escaped him before he could even think about it.

The girl looked up from her book and smiled at Enjolras. “Yes, Enj?”

“How would you feel about proofreading my essay? I could really use your help"

(Y/n) smiled and immediately made grabby hands towards him. How cute.

Enjolras chuckled - a thing that (Y/n) found very amusing - and gave her the essay.

“I’m gonna make some tea while you read it and then we can discuss it because I’m sure it’s awful”

“Nah, it seems pretty good"

“You just read the title, you dork"

(Y/n) snickered, “Yeah but the title is important”

They both laughed and so it began because the next week Enjolras came with another essay, and the same happened the week after and the week after and so on. It became a normal thing for Enj and (Y/n). Always the same routine: he came bringing the essay, made some tea while she read it and then they would discuss it together. Sometimes it was the other way around and he was the one to proofread (Y/n)’s essays, a thing that made him realize how really passionate the girl was.

And after discovering that Enjolras knew he was screwed for good.


“Where are you going?” Grantaire stopped Enjolras at the door.

“Not your business”

“Mhmm" murmured Grantaire while leaving the couch in order to find some food. “So you’re going to (Y/n)…”

“What?”

“You really think we didn’t know?” asked Grantaire, shocked. “Ponine lives with her, she told Marius she saw you there and puf! Everybody knows! So what’s going on?” smirked the black-haired guy.

“Nothing’s going on. We study.”

“Suuuure. So that’s why you look so…different!” smirked Grantaire, motioning towards Enjolras with his hands.

“…Different? How?”

“Well, like…all happy and lovey-dovey! It’s because you like studying, right?! That’s obvious” continued Grantaire sarcastically.

“I’m not lovey-dovey Grantaire” said Enj without meeting his friend’s eyes “and who the hell still uses that word?”

“Oh, ok sure. Maybe I’ll speak with (Y/n)”

Those were the last words Enjolras heard before leaving the apartment. He was frustrated. Yeah, he liked (Y/n): she made him feel happy and relaxed but all of this was so new to him that he didn’t really know what to do. He didn’t even know if telling her was the right thing to do. He thought she might reciprocate his feelings but he wasn’t sure and to top it all he wasn’t good at expressing his feelings with his words. He was only good in speaking about politics and things like that. He needed to find a way to tell her everything before someone else made a mess. He actually didn’t trust his friends: they were fantastic but they tended to meddle too much and this could lead to a disaster.


Enjolras worked almost the whole night so that he could be back at (Y/n)’s apartment the next day. This time he had a very special essay in his hands. He was about to knock when the door swung open.

“Oh, hey Enj!” greeted Eponine, smirking. “You’re lucky, I was just going out!”

He greeted her with a nasty look and a nod. “Ponine”

The girl laughed and left. “Try not to destroy anything and don’t do it on the couch!”

Enjolras flushed bright red and (Y/n) must have heard everything since she was now standing near the open door, sporting his same colour. He cleared his throat.

“I’m sorry about Ponine, Enj…“ started (Y/n)

“Don’t worry ‘bout it.” Cutting her off, Enjolras smiled and entered the apartment, trying to appear as confident as ever.

“Um, do you have another essay? So soon?”

“Well, yes but this is special.”

Let’s hope not to fuck up, Enj.

“Ok, gimme” said (Y/n) enthusiastically.

He gave her the work and went to make some tea. The usual.

(Y/n) felt there was something different and hoped everything was ok. Eponine and Cosette have been pestering her about Enjolras and their little arrangement after they noticed he lingered at their place for longer than necessary and especially when (Y/n) was at home alone. She only hoped it wasn’t getting awkward because he heard something. She really liked him but she also knew Enjolras wasn’t the kind of guy to start a relationship and certainly not with her: in her eyes, she was just plain. And he was the fearless guy that used to speak in front of hundreds of students and attracted almost half of them with only his blue eyes and the passion behind them.

Leaving these thoughts in a black corner of her head, (Y/n) concentrated on the words in front of her. The text seemed to be way much shorter than the others. It looked more like a bunch of sentences on a blank page. “Are you sure you want to go with this Enj?”

“Just read it freckles!” called him from the kitchen. He was literally sweating.

She took a deep breath and started:

Can you tell me what love is? How can I know that what I feel is love?

All I know is that she’s there, sat in front of me. She’s beautiful. And yet she thinks she’s not. All I want is to look at her, while she reads, while she talks, while she smiles. While she explains her ideas with that passion that is specifically hers. God, her eyes are shining.

Is that love?

So, is he writing about some real girl? Are these his real thoughts? (Y/n) wanted - no, needed - answers because her stomach was starting to knot, exactly like when she was feeling anxious or extremely nervous and that usually brought nothing good. She looked towards him but he wasn’t looking her way so she simply took another deep breath and kept reading.

All I want to hear is her voice, how would it be in the morning? How would it be in the evening, when she’s tired? Is this love if all I want is to wake up next to her and go to bed the same way?

All I see is her, running towards me with a big bag full of food because I’ve been stupid enough to forget to eat at breakfast and at lunch.

No one noticed.

But she did.

Is this love if my heart skipped several beats when I saw her that day?

She remembered that day.  She noticed he was so invested in his plans for the meeting that he forgot to eat so she took care of that buying him something.

Tears started to gather in her eyes: he cared.

All I want - all I need - is to be near her, waiting for those eyes to focus on me; waiting for that mouth to smile at me; waiting for her to talk to me and me only.

Is that love? Is me being selfish love too?

He really cared. He cared enough.

She couldn’t go on because her tears were making the words blurry. Her head snapped towards the kitchen where Enjolras was sipping his tea, stealing glances at her. He seemed calm but he was screaming inside. Especially when he noticed her tears. It wouldn’t have been the first time he fucked up.

Their eyes locked: blue against (y/e/c) and no words were needed anymore. She jumped from the chair and Enjolras had only the time to put the mug down before she was hugging him so tight he almost stopped breathing. Well, he wasn’t going to complain. He buried his face in her hair, breathing in her sweet scent, while she buried hers in his neck.

“I hope I didn’t mistaken anything…”

(Y/n) was still a bit overwhelmed: she’d never been the lucky one in love. So she simply shook her head and kissed him, burying her fingers in his blonde curls. Enjolras’ arms were keeping her near him and his hands were grabbing every part of her body they could reach.

His kiss was passionate but gentle: he made sure she understood how much he cared. And she did the same.

When they separated they both looked in each other eyes and giggled.

“So, is this love (Y/n)?”

“Yes, this is love, Enjolras”

If you don't mind me asking, who is your inspiration for writing

As a writer, I look up to @promiscuous-jalapeno​ a lot because as a person who grew up with Spanish as a first language and having to drastically switch to perfect English at a young age, I don’t know shit about writing correctly 😂😂😂 I was raised by the school system to master academic voice. I mastered that shit so good, I can bullshit analytical essays that my lowest grade will be a B- for it.

So when it comes to fan fiction or writing in general, I get lost because I never took a creative writing class. She already know this, but before we became really close… I printed out her fics and tried to figure out why and how she placed dialogue or expressions 😂😂

During the few mins of break I had between classes, I got out her fics and read them. Got my pencil pouch out with 3 different color highlighters with post its and just annotated the fuck out of her fics 😭😂😂 Like I wanted to improve my quality of writing because I dream of becoming a decent fic writer. Thats why when I use to get hate of being a sucky fic writer, I normally didn’t fight back because they were right in my eyes. I couldn’t afford to take a creative writing course so I just tried teaching myself. 

When we became close she knew about my writing anxiety and she gave my tips on how to deal with them. She is legit my big sister 😭 Even now with me changing from pure Mystic Messenger to having a dash of other otome games, she supported me and reassured my ass that I could do it. She even did me a favor of creating a computer theme for it. 

My ass is ranting about her LMAO BUT OH WELL, she is an amazing person and she deserves every single fucking note and positive message she receives. I know I may not be able to reach her level of talent due to my career path being rigorous of certain writing techniques, but I’m glad that she is here today to help me become a better person/writer :)

When you’re an artist, you can only be yourself. You can take inspiration, you can worry your style isn’t good enough, you can feel insecure…but you have to know that your art is YOURS. And no one can take that from you. Comparing yourself to others is really easy. And I find myself doing it a lot. And I worry I’m not good enough as others. I know I’m not. But my art is MINE. It’s my style, my colors, my lines. My expression. 

I just want to say that no matter what kind of creator you are…to just create. Go slow, go fast. Sketch, color. Write, sing, dance. Just do it. Because you will continue to improve with each mistake, each line, each word. It’s too easy to doubt. And I doubt all the time. Sometimes I post knowing I can do better. So I just apply more effort to the next drawing. Sometimes I like the haphazard messes I make. Sometimes I like spending time on detail. All I know is that I love drawing. And I love characters. And I love being able to make one person feel inspired. 

There will always be somebody better than you. That’s just a fact. But no one can BE you. You gotta remember that. I try too, anyway. It’s easy to feel insecure. I have days where I feel great and days where I feel like I’m not going anywhere. But time moves. Each creation is progress. And you’ll get to where you’re going. But you gotta be you. And that’s all I got. 🌴🌴🌴

improvement! when i started watching yuri on ice i knew i have to learn drawing male characters to make fanarts (before december i rarely drew men) and as you can see my first non-chibi fanart looks like shit XD there’s half a year difference between the two drawings and i think i improved a LOT. i wasted a huge amount of paper for sketches in the meantime but it was worth! (right? XD) so if you think your drawings are not good enough then don’t give up, just draw a lot more and you’ll get better :) <3 btw i’m coloring that lineart atm and i think i’ll never finish it as i want to add some many details XD

Wowee! Just look at that improvement! 

I wanna personally thank @leader-of-datlof for coloring and lining my first original drawing of Lynn (as seen up top)  and I wanted to try my hand at drawing her again (as seen right below) and I think I made some major improvement since then! So thanks again my dood hopefully I pump out some more doodles you’d want to color in for me!
