i need to get a copy of this

anonymous asked:

Hi, so this is going to sound really stupid but I love to draw and I have this freind who also loves to draw and when we get together we share each others sketch books and Evey time she see mine she laughs and says that's hers are a lot better or says that I am copying her and it's making me being really private about my drawing to the point when some one looks in my sketch book I want to cry and I don't know what to do so I was wondering if you have any advice for me if not that's fine

Anony.. that is SO unfair. ,(é~è),

I’m truthfully sorry to hear about this happening to you- Artists commonly have self-confidence issues because when you draw something, you’re reaching into your mind and laying it down in reality. It’s soulful work, and to have that mocked is not cool. 😱

It’s a beautiful, beautiful thing to have this skill that you and I are both so fortunate to find pleasure in, and if someone is making you feel bad about it in ANY way, you must, must, must find a way to heal yourself from this. 

Art is as unique as a fingerprint. No matter what kind of content you draw, fanart or original, it’s a drawing YOU created because it came from YOUR fingertips. That’s something to take so much pride in and love yourself over. 👏💖

Anony, I hope to whatever god is up or down that this experience doesn’t deter you from copying other artists. I say this because it’s important to copy. It’s important to know that if you see something you like, be it a character,🐰 a shading technique,🌇 a unique mouth gesture,💋 a pose…💃 you should try it out yourself because ALL artists grow with observing, replicating, molding it into something new, and using it as a stepping stone for improvement. 🎉✏️

DO NOT let that girl get to you. If SHE says her artwork is better, let her believe whatever she wants. Because art👏 is👏 not👏 a👏 race.👏 You have already won in this world because YOUR art is YOURS and nobody elses. Embrace the things that makes your artwork unique.

That was always the hardest part for me. I didn’t like my linework because I liked how so-n-so drew theirs so clean while mine is messy.

But darling, once I learned to embrace my messy lines, I’ve been able to improve and focus more on the soul in a drawing rather than it bein’ pretty. An’ it’ll improve with time, anyway.

My advice; If you’re having fun, you’re doing it right.

Hugs and kisses Anony, keep your chin up, don’t let anyone put a wet blanket on your passion. XOXO

The GQ with Ed Sheeran on the cover is the UK version of the magazine. The anon will need to order the US version online to get a copy with Tom on the cover as its unlikely to be sold in any shops.

Ahhhh, I was just assuming that Ed was last month’s. My fault!

Google Drive’s “unable to play this video” solution:

When you get this message on google drive

you can watch the video by giving a right click on the file and selecting “make a copy” (to do this I think you need a google drive account (you only need to have a gmail account to make one))

after you do that click on “my drive” and the file should be there. Wait until it is done processing (it might take a few minutes) and then you should be able to watch the episode.

This Just In

Eevee is wlw.

I went to Home Depot with my sister, playing Pokémon Go as always, and was immediately surrounded by a whole group of Eevees.

Either they wait at Home Depot for gay ladies to come find them, or they are gay themselves. These are the only options.

And so the time has come when I can share my piece from the @a-little-light-zine with everyone! For those who did not purchase the zine, viola! For those who did, I want to thank you SO much for contributing to help Haiti and for your kind words complimenting my work! Your messages mean so much. <3 

Orders for this zine close on January 31st! I highly recommend getting a copy to keep because it’s gorgeous! 

And of course I need to thank @littleblackchat for organizing this beautiful collaboration for a cause that is near and dear to my heart! I truly enjoyed creating this piece. :) 

It was inspired by my fiancé’s brother who, for his entry into our local ugly christmas sweater party a year ago, threaded actual blinking christmas lights into it, and I think he also like made a facade of a gingerbread house with real gingerbread and candy and everything and super-glued it to the front?….what a sight that was! X’) 

So I thought Marinette would use her skills to make Chat a really dorky Christmas sweater that’s just as flashy and silly as he. I wanted a gift-exchange between them in the Christmas special so bad, I have toe settle for this lol! ; _ ;  

Thanks for all the recent follows, likes and reblogs! I appreciate your support and I love this fandom! I’m taking a bit of a break, but I’ll be back with some more fanart soon!

How to get the most out of life

1. See each day as a fresh start and a new beginning.

2. Don’t be a copy of anybody else – enjoy discovering and being your true self.

3. Be proactive, take control and look for opportunities. You’ve only got one life so make sure you stay in control.

4. Don’t focus on the obstacles or things you cannot change. Just ask yourself “What next? or else “What can I do instead?”

5. Appreciate your limits and then set clear boundaries. You need to care for yourself to be the best “you” you can be.

6. Decide on your values and what matters most to you. Then live in a way that’s consistent with those values.

7. Don’t put life on hold as the months turn into years … and there’s always the chance that some important doors will close.

8. Set goals for yourself – then plan the steps to take you there.

9. Learn from other people that you value as role models – but ignore the naysayers and the hypercritical.

10. Let go of the past, and old hurts and grievances. Don’t be afraid to ask for help, or to see a counsellor.

Google Docs/AO3 writing tip:

If you, like me, have had trouble when copying from Google Docs into AO3 and hate seeing the line spacing getting fried, try this:

- Highlight everything. CTRL + A is your friend here.

- [Optional] Change the line spacing to single I’m pretty sure you don’t need to do this step, but I’m more comfortable with how things look in single line spacing when I’m writing.

- Go back into the same menu and select ‘Add space after paragraph’. This will give the appearance of a clear line space without there actually being one, and will make it much easier for you to see where each paragraph starts and ends.

- Only hit return once when starting a new paragraph.

- Write your thing <3

Now, when you paste from Docs into AO3′s rich text editor, the line spacing will behave!


Pasting from Docs to AO3′s rich text editor also does this in html, which I find messy and distracting if I’m editing html for any reason:

But when you preview your work and go back, it will have changed to this:

Just toggle to rich text and then back to html and it will look miles better:

I’m not sure why AO3 does any of those things, but this is how I get round it. I hope this is helpful!

yoi is all about yuri, his professional development, ups and downs, thoughts and feelings etc. obviously. but the thing is that every character in this show has their own backstories. yuri, yurio, minako, phichit, kenjiro, guang-hong, georgi, leo, christophe. their dreams, motives and reasons, they are so bright and different, and i honestly just ADORE every character in this show

but then there is victor, one of the main characters and yuri’s love of his life

the scene where victor watches yuri’s copy of his performance on youtube is the one and only glance into his personal life we got so far, so let’s see what can we get from it

it’s a small and minimalistic apartment which fits victor perfectly. some magazines beside sofa for one or two people, his coat hanging on that strange chair-hanger thing, some kind of cactus that doesn’t need that much time for caring of, no family photos, skating prizes, dog toys, maccachin plushies or whatever would make his home HIS. it looks lonely and empty

he’s the best of the best, has breathtaking visuals and was labeled as the hottest bachelor in the universe. literally everyone has heart eyes on his face and fame, but not HIM, and i think it kinda annoys victor and what if after years of searching he just gave up on trying to find he right person. what if yuri is THAT person. what if victor found not only his inspiration, but his REAL home in yuri

victor has very bright and cheerful personality and i’m not saying that he’s faking it, but i believe there is so much more behind that mask. turning back to the scene is victor’s apartment, his expression is deadly serious and pensive, he sighs as if he made a difficult decision

and we finally get some explanations that doesn’t really explain anything

like he decided to give himself another chance, because he felt something in yuri? 

we do know literally nothing about victor’s past and like 0,5% about what’s going on in his mind, and this makes me more curious about the story of this beautiful, golden hearted and lonely man

On Summoning Demons

Strap in mammals, I need to correct some stupidities about summoning major demons. I’ll lay out a proper procedure in a few easy steps. This isn’t for minor infernals, but so-called “princes of Hell”, as it were. I’ll focus on the Goetic demons.

Step One: Acquire a copy of Ars Goetia (you can get a free PDF online)

Step Two: Record names, sigils, and descriptions of any you want to contact.

Step Three: Throw the rest of Ars Goetia in the garbage and tell it that it’s a very rude poorly behaved book.

Step Four: Inscribe a sigil on whatever you have available. If you happen to have an unused gold tablet laying around I’m sure they’d be flattered, so by all means pull out the dremel tool and get to work. If you’re like the rest of us, pen and paper is fine. If you want to get really fancy, use a consecrated pen or special ink.

Step Five: Cast a circle and so on in whatever fashion suits your tradition. It’s not to protect you from the demon, it’s to screen out discordant energy and interference.

Step Six: Respectfully request their presence and begin conversing. Treat them as one part deity and two parts royalty. Please and thank you. Yes sir/ma’am. Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. 

The Goetic demons are GODS. Several of them can be traced to their origins. Asteroth is the Egyptian Astarte. The idea that you can force them to do your bidding, or that you can protect yourself from them, is a joke.

The Goetic concept that they are bound to specific sigils and commands is based on a pact made by King Solomon for a fixed period of time, which has expired. It’s useless now, even if it ever was genuine. They help those who they find worthy, and no one else.

If you are respectful, and they find you worthy, they may choose to help you. If you are unworthy, some of them might just decide to fuck with you. Which would fall under the category of not my problem, so follow my advice at your own risk. Each demon has their own standards and personality. It’s almost like they’re real people (heavy sarcasm). If you want to work with them, treat them as such. If you give a major demon an order, I have zero sympathy for what they may do to you.

I am not recommending that anyone summon demons. For humans it’s really generally not a good idea. you don’t have claws and scales. But if you’re going to do it anyway, try not to make an ass of yourself. Entrails are a bitch to clean out of carpet.

Carry on, and good luck, humans.

anonymous asked:

Is it rude to copy someones artstyle?

It’s not rude, copying is a nice way to learn to draw and to get used to some difficult poses, backgrounds or even coloring. 

Copying is not rude, HOWEVER… what it IS rude is to copy someone’s drawing, post it online and say it’s yours. If you copy something you should write the sources, who inspired you… after all, artists also need shoutouts AND you could help other people look for references too!
