I was making an expression chart but then quickly realized how much of a pain that would be to make as a traditional artist. Instead I just made one good drawing of the one expression I know you all like.
I’ve just been in an odd mood today because of reasons. On one hand, I want to hold conversations and communicate.
On the other hand, my thoughts are clouded, my feelings on various things keep changing so rapidly that I can’t keep up with it, my mind is racing and memories feel scrambled, adhd and sensory overload have been in full effect all day, and depression is slowly rearing it’s ugly head. Also increasingly worried about things.
I have a stressful and taxing week ahead too. Forgive me if I’m a bit “off” for a while.
An interviewer asked Barry Jenkins about the universality of Moonlight and he so beautifully corrected him. This isn’t a universal story, it’s a particular story: “I think people just want to know, if I express myself somebody is going to hear it. Because that cat went back home to his place and expressed himself and I hear it. That’s all I care about.”
hey your art is beautiful but please don't turn maori culture into ship bait,,,
That’s really really not my intention and I’m very sorry if it looks like it. Mocking a culture is the last thing I want to do.
What I meant to express is that for someone who doesn’t know the culture, they could mistake this for something else but Hongi definitely ISN’T about romance or whatever (which is pretty much why Mako reacted like that)
If that’s still offensive, I’ll delete the drawing
I remembered today that I never actually finished the Hakuōki anime, so I’m doing that now (this is literally my homework, by the way—my independent study sponsor-teacher straight up told me it was okay to include historical fiction as reference) and
I KNOW HARADA’S EXPRESSION IS SUPPOSED TO BE ANGRY, BUT IT REALLY JUST LOOKS ANNOYED. like he was trying to sleep in, but Shiranui found the spare key Harada keeps having to relocate, specifically because his rival keeps finding it and getting into the house exactly like this, just to wake him up early with backhanded compliments and badger him for wasting the day instead of going to the gym with him. PRICELESS.
“I think that… I think that until you’ve fought those battles yourself, until you’ve had the guts to stand up for who you are, you should be really fucking careful talking about and putting yourself above Gay Pride.”
