I just love that we have an entire movie to explain the age old question:
“What the hell is a Hufflepuff?”
Well. They protect, fiercely. They’re loyal, even to the point of staying for a painful dinner because he’d kind of sort of implied that he would. They make friends quickly. They jump in wherever they’re needed, (Or wanted) and their reaction to someone trying to use a hurting child for their own gain is outrage, eyes flashing and wand a blurred motion in combative magic. They are not above physically luring a powerful creature back to safety using nothing more than a mating dance (and a bit of cunning) and they have no problem straight up lying to a mark for information because their loyalty, again, is fierce and eternal.
Hufflepuffs are hardworking, friendly, and loyal.
It was a few seconds before Cinder found her voice and she had to grip the door frame to keep standing. “Thorne?” His head jerked around. “Cinder?” “Wh—what are you—how? Where have you been? What’s going on? Why are you wearing that stupid bandanna?” He laughed. Gripping a wooden cane, he stumbled toward her, waving one hand until it landed on her shoulder. Then he was hugging her, suffocating her against his chest. “I missed you too.” “You jerk,” she hissed, even as she returned the hug. “We thought you were dead!” “Oh, please. It’d take a lot more than a satellite plummeting to Earth to kill me.”
Okay honestly one of my favorite things about Ouran is Kyoya’s character development???
He’s one of the most static characters; he’s calm, cool, collected, intelligent, and the obvious moral compass of the group,
But as the season goes on you start to notice a few cracks…like, the kind where you see the real Kyoya poking through, begging for someone to let him out???
As you learn his backstory you realize that while he’s the mother of the group, he’s actually the child of his family, which makes SO MUCH SENSE,
BECAUSE HE CAN EXERCISE CONTROL WITH THE HOST CLUB THAT HE NEVER GETS AT HOME.
And I feel like that somehow corresponds with everything he does within the club, and why he’s so meticulous about everything, because maybe in his subconscious somewhere he thought to himself,
"If my father were to ever catch me in this club, at least I would have something to show for it,“ which is why he’s so undeniably efficient with all that he controls.
And the way he feels about Tamaki is absolutely PRECIOUS to see, because at first you feel like he thinks of Tamaki as a genuine moron, (which is how I felt really, I can’t really speak for everyone,) and then you get to the, “And so Kyoya Met Him!” episode.
Which is when you finally get to see how exactly their friendship began in the first place, the history behind our daddy and mommy of the Host Club. And you realize, “Hey, I wasn’t that far off. Kyoya DID think he was a moron, at one point.”
And while Kyoya still thinks Tamaki is an idiot, it’s more of a term of endearment at this point, rather than an insult. Because as weary as he is of Tamaki’s antics, when he thought he was gonna lose him, Kyoya absolutely lost it.
And that was A FREAKING PLEASURE to see because you realize NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES KYOYA CALLS HIM AN IDIOT, OR MORON, OR REFERS TO HIM AS A BURDEN, you know in your heart that that silly blonde prince means the world to Kyoya, and that is in fact his best friend.
So throughout the season, obviously each character makes their own significant steps to becoming more individual, coming into themselves, but Kyoya’s developement is definitely one of my favorites.
how does one draw beards, besides selling their soul to Satan?
no soul-selling! it’s pretty simple
well, what i’m gonna show you is pretty simple
so let’s take these baby-faces:
having the jawline/chin/etc down pretty accurate is important! because the beard grows from there!
dudes all have a specific growth pattern on their face. when doing a 5 o’clock shadow, you can pretty much just follow that and fill it in with a gray/their hair color at a low opacity
with the growth pattern and jawlines and mind, it’s pretty easy to make a readable beard by doing little lines that follow those patterns! i never do a straight line to draw beards. it’s an option, but it’s tough to make look natural lol–i don’t even do that for comics! but once the hairs are curved along the jawline, i think getting rid of the visible jawline helps show thickness/structure to the beard itself
as beards get longer, you can lengthen the lines and make them have more minds of their own, as they begin to stop conforming with the face!
so that’s about it. if you want beards with a little more texture, remember that beards grow in layers. they grow just like hair! but…on..on the face.
they really weren’t kidding when they said this is their best album yet. every single song on the going seventeen album is absolutely incredible. I don’t know how they keep doing it but they’ve truly outdone themselves and I’m so so proud of them all.
