i keep trying new things

Happy Fanart Friday! 

I’m trying a new thing to keep me productive, every once in a while I’ll post a fan art for one of my favorite things! This will be an attempt to not only practice my drawing skills but also keep me from delving into an endless pit of sorrow as I proceed to draw the same characters every week for the rest of my life. I’m currently calling it Fanart Friday because alliteration is SICK.

This week I drew Red Squib from Baman Piderman, which I recently rewatched. He’s only just got his new feets and is already quickly becoming my personal fave character. And since it’s just in time the holiday season I gave him a sweater, cuz why not. 

If you haven’t seen Baman Piderman (um, how?), check it out! It’s a good time. 

Happy Winter Friends!

more random thoughts i’m flinging onto the dash but that feel when u come across a new blog for a character you love or just a new blog in general and you’re jittering in ur seat waiting to read their rules & about bcuz like? i don’t want to just assume a character is going to be such and such and i’d hate to follow & then find out later our rules clash & make us incompatible? bcuz i’m trying to only follow ppl i have every intention of interacting with. so. or maybe this feel is just me? lol

It’s after getting to kiss him sober and mumble ‘Kentarou’ against his shoulder in an effort to find out how the name feels in his mouth. 

Do yourself a favor and read Destroy the Middle (It’s A Waste of Time) By @knightswatch

anonymous asked:

Did you see all the hate Chris Evans is getting? :(

I’ve seen a lot of people and their opinions on him being cast in the new role. I try to keep my opinions to myself on things because if your opinion isn’t like someone else’s they’ll tell you you’re wrong and wanna argue. And I don’t have time for that. 

But yeah it does suck. Be happy for the guy.
