i need to take real photos

You know what wonders me…

Whenever I find a tweet from any NCTzen non Doyoung Biased who met them or went to a fansign etc, saying something like:

“ I was really surprised at how handsome Doyoung is in real”

I mean, he had always been THAT HANDSOME!

You just need to take a look at all my posts to realize… If you are to lazy I’m going to leave this images for you to admire.

I don’t know, it’s not just about Doyoung, every member is really handsome I can’t imagine how more handsome this boys can get in real, even when I already saw them performing live in front of my damn face it still looks like seeing a photo with no retouch.

Funny story is that when I started as an NCTzen Yuta (I mean I still really loving him) and Hansol were the ones who dragged me but when Limitless hit my face with Doyoung slaying Orange hair (more than 7 sense era) I felt like being hit on the face with a damn brick, he is just so cute and handsome for me, obvsly Hansol is still my first love (but now he is finally getting the attention he deserves and I stan him along with Timoteo)but Doyoung means a lot to me now, not just because he is handsome or cute, he is more than his face, he sings awesome, he has a talk ability and he loves it, my mom NCTzen or K-pop fans friends had said that Doyoung and I are pretty similar in some superficial things (I mean even if he shows us some actions or some attitude it doesn’t mean it’s how he really is in his normal life), he has said some pretty things I totally agree, he is just so important to me, as an artist.

Meet the JSE community

I really liked no-string-puppet’s small community event idea, and I really wanted to do it so here it is!

3. Hobbies?

I really enjoy drawing and I absolutely love to make comics! I also like to play video games, watch movies, and of course….watching youtube

4. What is your dream job?

When I was 5 I wanted to be a Perkins waitress and live in a trailer next to my parents house (I am legit not joking 😂😂) so that’s never happening. but as of right now i’m leaning toward an animator or a cartoonist.

5. What kind of shit would we find in your bag?

The absolute bare essentials, a pad of paper and a pencil for spur of the moment ideas. I don’t really carry bags around a lot, and if I do its always a duffel bag

6. How would you describe your personality?

Quiet, shy, introverted, and nervous around people, but once you get to know me I am super weird, relaxed, and very energetic. I absolutely LOVE to make people laugh and I am also extremely determined, and love meeting with new people!

7. When did you find Jack’s channel?

I’m not completely sure, I think I first found him around early 2016, but I didn’t watch him as much as I do now

8. Put in order your top 3 favorite egos!

Anti, scheeplestein, and for third it’s tied between Chase and Robbie I can’t pick one or the other they are both too smol

9. Favorite/most nostalgic video/series of Jack’s to watch?

Probably undertale, I think that was one of the first things of his that I watched. I also really like the last guardian and slime rancher series

10. Would you describe yourself as an active member or a quiet member of the community? If you’re an active member, what is your favorite part of what you do? Do you write fan fiction? Fan art? Theories? Or do you just enjoy chatting with others?

I guess I’m an active member? I don’t talk as much as I wish I could, I’m usually really nervous but I do like talking to people. My favorite part of what I do is drawing fan art and being involved with the community. It makes me so happy and it feels like a second family to me :)

I used to have a lot of trouble still do with procrastination and I realized that, in my new studyblr days, I didn’t know how to utilize my studyblr to help me and it was just another way for me to procrastinate and feel productive. If you can relate to this, you could probably benefit from this little dose of studyblr realness.

  1. Don’t use your studyblr just for aesthetics: studyspo is great for inspiration and motivation, and it’s probably what drew you to the studyblr community, but it shouldn’t be what makes you stay. You won’t be able to take anything worthwhile from your blog if all you reblog is photos of beautiful notes. Mix it up with masterposts and printables and photos of “non-aesthetic” notes.
  2. Don’t use methods that don’t work for you: if you absolutely cannot understand mindmaps but absolutely love the way they look, resist the urge to make them. You’ll only end up confusing yourself and wasting time. Only use note taking and studying methods that make sense to you. 90 percent of the time they’ll be things that you used before you made a studyblr. This isn’t to say that you shouldn’t experiment with different styles and methods, but only stick to what works for you.
  3. Discipline over motivation: imho, the study community  overstates the importance and effectiveness of motivation. Don’t get me wrong, motivation makes studying more enjoyable when you have it, but more often than not you don’t. In the end, motivation isn’t what makes you study every night, or stick with self studying a language. You have to discipline yourself to study when you don’t want to, or work when you’re tired. My old French teacher used to say “Don’t fall into the trap of waiting motiviation, and just do it” and I feel like that’s super important with this. (1, 2, 3)
  4. Talking about studying isn’t studying: sort of related to number 3, don’t let your studyblr be another way to put off work. It’s all to easy to think “I’m blogging about studying; in being productive,” but it’s a dangerous thing to do. Studyspo is great, but don’t let scrolling through your feed become another method of procrastination.
  5. Take photos after you study: or during, but not before. I used to spend so long taking pictures of my notes, that I wouldn’t have time to study them. I still take too long photographing my notes to take picture, so I’ve started using a pomorodo timer. After 25 minutes, I’ll use my five minute break to take photos. It’s increases my productivity so much, and I’m not sure how I ever functioned without that system.
  6. Just get it done (and prioritize): honestly, sometime you just have to forget about trying to make your notes look pretty and just go for functionality over looks. Just let go of any studyblr ideals and do what you need to do. If you don’t have time to bullet journal and get your work finished, use an electronic calendar or don’t spend so long on your journal. Most importantly, be real with yourself. At the end of the day, you know yourself best, and you know what you need to do.

Good luck on your studyblr journeys lovelies, hope this helped!

Before I start this post, I want to say that everyone’s orientation is different! I’ve seen that a lot of schools have orientation over the summer, weeks before classes start. My school, I guess because only a few of us are from here and the majority of students are out of the state/country, we had orientation week starting on move-in day, the same week classes started. That’s why I will be discussing move-in day and the first day of classes here, though yours might be a completely separate experience. Let’s get started!

Move-In Day

  • Dress for a lot physical activity. You are going to be lugging your shit up and down stairs (elevators get full, if you even have them) all day, walking back and forth to your car, and once you get everything in your room, you will have to unpack and loft your bed, etc. You are going to be sweaty and exhausted by the time it’s all over. I wanted to still be cute so I wore spandex, my Vandy t-shirt and hat, and a full face of makeup lol. I know you might want to make a good first impression on your roommate and new classmates, but everyone will be wearing what looks like workout clothes. Don’t wear jeans or a dress or something. It’s August, it’s hot, you’ll regret it.
  • Be patient. Oh my god, I swear 90% of the memories I have of move-in day are just me waiting. Waiting in the car for the line to move towards the dorms, waiting in line to get my key, waiting for a dolly to free up, waiting to get inside the elevator, waiting for the stairs to clear up. It’s so boring, especially when you’re so excited to just finally be there. Be prepared to wait and try to appreciate your last few moments before college ruins your life (just kidding!).
  • Brace yourself for something to go wrong. No matter how organized your school is, chaos is inevitable on move-in day. You will have planned according to a schedule they gave you, and something will not go the way it’s supposed to. Thousands of freshmen who don’t know anything all in the same place at once is a recipe for disaster. Just don’t stress about it cause it will all work itself out. Honestly, that’s a philosophy to live by for your entire college career, not just move-in day.

Orientation Week

  • I can’t even explain how busy you’ll be. Starting from the first floor meeting we had on move-in day, the entire next seven days were packed full of activities and meetings and ceremonies. I still have my freshmen guide with the itenerary of all the things we had to do, and it was pages long. Everyday we would wake up at like 8, and have things to do until after midnight. I was so busy, I didn’t even have time to be on my phone, and I love social media. You will be so tired, and it will get old really quick. I don’t really have any advice, but through the exhaustion, remember to try and appreciate this chaotic time and stay in the moment. You’ll never again experience the freshness and excitement of your first week at college, soon you’ll get used to it all and you’ll wish for that feeling back.
  • You don’t have to attend everything. Like I said, you will be exhausted. You won’t want to wake up at 6 am for the Freshman Sunrise (i did and i regretted it), or to take the class picture where you have to stand still for an hour and you can’t even see yourself in the photo (again, i should’ve slept in). You might feel obligated to go to everything, but if you just need a break, then take that break. Orientation is overwhelming. 
  • Don’t freak out if you miss a required meeting. We had lots of events that were marked required. It’s inevitable that people miss these, due to sleeping through an alarm, or reading the time wrong, or getting lost on campus since you don’t know where everything is. Lots of the time, they only mark it as required to scare people into going when there’s no real consequence if you don’t. Even if there is a consequence, you won’t get into any major trouble the first week. You’re freshmen, they understand. Do try to make it to them, though. The best way to do this is to find friends or other people who are in that same section and go together.
  • Don’t stress about making friends. It is quite literally impossible to not make friends during orientation week. You will have to attend so many things with the same group(s) of people that you’ll bond over that alone. You don’t even have to try, so if you’re not a social person, don’t worry. As long as you don’t stay silent in a corner, you’ll have plenty of people to hang out with. 
  • Don’t stress about keeping the friends you do make. You will meet a million people, and have a million new numbers in your phone. You will have a hard time matching everyone’s names to their faces. People form connections really quickly, that’s just human nature, but this is especially heightened in university when everyone is away from home and no one knows anyone. Don’t feel like you have to stay attached to the same five people you became best friends with after two days for fear of not finding anyone else to be close to. Lots of people meet their real friends at the beginning of the year, but most people don’t. All of the pictures and videos I have from my entire first semester are with and of people I don’t even speak to anymore, people who, frankly, I can hardly stand to look at now. During orientation, you’ll gravitate towards anyone, but you’ll soon realize you don’t know them at all and they might turn out to be shitty people. I met all the friends I have now second semester through the LGBT group on campus, and they’re great. Point is, don’t feel too attached to your orientation buddies. You will find your people, even if it takes a while.

First Day of Classes

  • Find the buildings where your classes are held beforehand. Yes, I mean physically walk to them and find the exact classroom, don’t just use Google Maps to make sure you can get there in ten minutes. I knew the names of all the buildings and their general location, but then I found out some buildings are attached to each other and numbered in a strange order, then you finally find the right building but can’t find the right floor and hallway. I was late to all of my classes the first day. University buildings are so confusing. You will have trouble, I promise you. Do yourself a favor and figure out how to get to all of your classrooms sometime earlier in the week. You will feel great about not being that embarrassing freshmen asking the upperclassmen for directions (who are happy to help, but will laugh at you just a little bit).
  • Introduce yourself to the professor before or after class. You don’t have to do this if you don’t want, but it can’t hurt. Just shake their hand and make sure they can match your face to the name. Doing this the first day makes it easier to establish contact with them later in the semester, which you’ll probably have to do. Don’t worry, you’ll see lots of the other students in your lecture doing this, too. Just hop on in line.
  • Double check to make sure you don’t have any assignments due/papers to bring. This is unlikely cause you don’t have summer work in college (at least to my knowledge) and it’s never happened to me, but I had friends whose professors had assigned them work for the the first day of class. This is really ugly, I know, but just check your email and Blackboard to make sure there’s nothing to do. 

This is longer than I anticipated, so thanks if you read it all! I hope this helps someone out. Orientation is a chaotic mess but so so fun, cause it’s the only time you’ll ever be able to experience the fun of college without the stress of the work. Up next is advice on living with a roommate (and boy, do I have advice for that). Previous posts:

Cosplaying with your parents around - starting the hobby

Cosplay is a wonderful expression of creativity, but if you’re a minor still living at home, having a parent around can a tad trying. 

For some, getting their parents on board can be difficult. You may feel like your parents are giving you the “weird eye” and being generally unsupportive. If that’s the case, you might want to have a talk with them: 

Let them know what this is

Parents (or friends) may see cosplay as a childish activity that involves making Halloween a year-round event. You can help make them understand cosplay is more than that. Cosplay can be casual, it can be competitive, it can be fun, but it can also be serious. Regardless, cosplayers are passionate doing what they do and helping your parents see your passion will go a long way. 

You may also want to introduce them to the fandom that you’re cosplaying from. I know that my sister and I spent a while explaining the oddities of anime when we were starting on our first cosplays (e.g. yes, I know he’s got bright blonde hair and wears a neon-orange jumpsuit, but I swear he’s a ninja….) 

Explain the benefits of cosplay

  • Whether you are buying or making your cosplay, it forces you to use skills that will be useful in real life: working a budget, time management, negotiating/bargaining (if doing commissions), setting goals, and delivering results by a certain deadline.
     
  • Think of all the useless things you could be doing with your time rather than cosplaying: texting/tweeting, mindlessly surfing the Internet, lazing around the house etc. 

  • Cosplay has a thriving community with many friendly people - there are thousands of chances to meet new people, both online and in real life. Emphasize the networking possibilities. 

Make it clear that you have your priorities straight

Parents may be worried that you’ll go for cosplay over studying, chores, work etc. This cannot be the case - real world responsibilities come first. Let you parents know this and then follow through! I cannot stress enough that you need to prioritize smartly.

Get them involved

You might be surprised at how interested they get - also, you never know what tricks they have up their sleeves. For example, my dad loves taking photos, so now I go to him whenever I want some high-quality basic shots of my costumes. 

Y/N Rogers [ Peter Parker ]

Anonymous said to peteypxrker:

A Peter Parker imaginer where she is Captain America’s daughter and she’s dating Peter. She gets kidnapped by a villain (you choose) and both of them go rescue her. Once they save her the reader is glad to see them because they arrive just on time before she was about to be tortured. Once she’s safe Steve is mad at Peter for not protecting his daughter basically Steve goes all overprotective dad on him. But Peter and the reader talk with Steve so that he isn’t mad anymore. Sorry this is long ty!

A/N: I changed up the plot a bit to where she isn’t dating Peter just yet!

Warnings: some hoco spoilers I guess, some swearing.

DATING YOONGI BUT ALSO BEING BEST FRIENDS WITH BTS

anon said : Hi! can I request one of those list things with that you’re dating yoongi and are friend with BTS? Thank you!


  • when you first started dating Yoongi, he mentioned it offhandedly to the members and they freaked
  • like????? Yoongi????? dating someone?????? and NOT telling them????
  • it wasn’t that he wasn’t proud of you and happy to be dating you
  • but your relationship with him was very private and intimate in general so he hadn’t said anything before
  • of course they asked to meet you and Yoongi complied, actually very happy to show you off
  • when they first met you Taehyung was probably the first one to break the silence with a small “wow” before introducing himself
  • honestly they were all so shocked because you were so attractive????????? how could anybody possibly be that attractive??????
  • you’d most likely become quick friends with Taehyung, Jimin, and Hoseok simply because they wanted to tell you embarrassing stories about Yoongi tbfh
  • rip in peace @ them
  • they’d most likely try to get you to tell some embarrassing stories about Yoongi but there would be no way you were giving up your blackmail that easily
  • the boys would most likely add you to a group chat
  • you’d end up muting it because Hoseok and Taehyung would talk nonstop in it
  • okay but real talk
  • Yoongi’s lock screen and background would photos of you
  • probably really candid pictures too
  • plus he’d send you photos he took throughout the day and give you a short blurb describing the moments leading up to him taking the photo
  • he wouldn’t be into a lot of pda but when the two of you were alone, it’d be a completely different story
  • you’d be like “Yoongi, I really need to go to the bathroom” and he’d just pull you closer to him
  • “Yoongi, please”
  • he’d sigh before saying “fine, I’ll come with you” and you’re like “???tf”
  • like he’s literally so clingy??? but it’s always so nice
  • more often than not you’d call Namjoon or Jin to find out where your boyfriend was
  • “uhhh, well… I haven’t seen him since lunch time. I think he’s in his studio.” - Namjoon @ 01:14am
  • so you’d find some 24hr convenience store and pick up some food and head to the studio silently cursing Min Yoongi for always working himself too hard
  • all of the boys would find reasons to hang out with you
  • Hoseok wants you to watch him dance? you better bet you’ll walk out of the practice room able to dance along with him
  • Taehyung wants to take you out for karaoke? suddenly it’s eleven at night and both of you are having a battle to see who can hit the highest note
  • Jimin sits down next to you and starts talking to you? wow how did it get to be 10pm and where did this tea (figuratively and literally) come from
  • the list just goes on and on
  • lowkey Yoongi’s jealous of you spending so much time with the other members but highkey he’s glad you get along with all of them so well
  • The boys would always invite you places
  • if they went bowling you better bet you’d be the first one they called to make the teams even
  • the boys would all be so glad that Yoongi had found someone who loved him unconditionally and they would be happy to find a friend in you
  • Yoongi wouldn’t say he loved you much but he’d always show it whether it was sending you thoughtful messages throughout the day or inviting you into his studio when he was working, his face always lighting up whenever you appeared in his doorway
Elephant in the Room

Combination of Two Prompts: How would Batmom react to Teen Titans Robin and him not being in contact with them for so long? What would happen if she showed up at the tower? AND Dick calls Bruce and Batmom dad and mom for the first time after being adopted.

Words: 1745

AN: This was a pretty long one, but filled with fluffy feels, and I love it!!!


Your son is one of the best of his generation, and in your mother’s eye, the best. You understand why he left, you support his choice of independence, but an entire year without a call is simply too much. He stayed in contact for the first two, a random call here, and email, there, but then suddenly there was nothing.

          The only thing that let you know he was still alive were the news reports. Bruce, of course, follows every morsel of news. Though he’d never say it out loud, he knows that things need to be fixed.  You’d be willing to bet the Wayne family fortune that Dick knows the exact same thing.

          You can’t help but smile, after all, that’s what you’re here for; to beat sense into those stubborn heads. The security system is the exact same as the Batcave’s, and you’re surprised to find that your codes work.

          You let yourself in, and one quick hack into the system tells you that no one is there. So you wander, you take in the sights, and look around at the home your son has built for himself. You smile when you find his room. He’s changed his uniform a bit. There are no photos in obvious places or any real identifying marks.

          You leave the room for the common room and take a seat on the couch. You pull the photo album out and just wait. When the sound of footsteps and laughter sounds, you slip on the mask that’s needed; it actually goes rather nicely with your outfit.

          More than just his team strolls through the doors, it seems like every super powered teen in existence is there and Dick just stops at the sight of you. You stand up, and say, “I didn’t realize you’d be in the middle of a party.”

          He stiffens a bit and asks, “What are you doing here?” His voice is a bit hesitant.

          You grab your bag, and approach him. The closer you get the more you realize just how much he’s grown. You smile and say, “We need to talk.” He glances back at his friends and back to you, you just say, “I’ll wait in your room, I already know the way.”

          He watches you slide through the doors and Starfire asks, “Robin, who is that woman?”

          His voice is tight with emotion when he says “She’s my mother.”

          There’s a collective statement of “You have a mother?”

          Dick just glances at Roy and Wally, the only two not surprised and says, “Of course I have a mother.” Before he walks out of the room.

          He finds you sitting on the bed, sans mask. Before he can say a word you say, “No masks, you know the rules.”

          He doesn’t fight you on it, just removes his mask. You smile and open your arms. Sure enough he slides right into them. His head goes to your lap, and your fingers run through his hair. When the sobs come you know something happened, that there was a reason he hadn’t called.

          You let him cry, because sometimes everyone needs to, and you’d be willing to bet that your baby is long overdue. When he’s done, he slides on to the bed and tells you everything. He tells you about being held against his will by Slade, being forced to do horrible things, and then he tells you about the Brotherhood of Evil, and finally about Trigon.

          You listen as he pours out every pent up emotion, and when he’s done you don’t say anything about it. Instead you start on your own story, “Do you remember when you first came to live at the manor?”

          His brow furrows, “Of course.”

          You smile and remove a stuffed elephant from your bag, his eyes go wide at the sight of it. “You were so little and scared, and man oh man, did you remind me of Bruce. You two were the same age you know, when you lost your parents. You didn’t know what to make of us, and we weren’t really sure what to make of you to be honest. At that point we’d only been responsible for ourselves.”

          Dick smirks, “And all of Gotham.”

          You smile, as your hand strokes over the elephants worn head, “We’d never planned on kids, but when we saw you after that show, it hit us, you were ours. And then you started to grow, and you took on the family business with your dad, and I was just amazed, at how lucky we were to be blessed with a kid like you.”

          “You always made sure to keep my birth parents in the picture though. You’d talk about them with me, you’d take me to visit their graves whenever I wanted to. You even had that portrait made.”

          You grin, “That was all your dad, he didn’t want you to feel like we were replacing them.”

          “You didn’t I just got lucky  and got to have two sets of parents.”

          You smile, and there’s a moment of silence, “He misses you, you know.” Dick doesn’t say anything. “He bookmarks every newspaper article on you saving the day. Even has a subscription to the local paper. He’s very proud.”

          “He wouldn’t be proud if he knew what happened.” You smile a bit and he just groans, “How in the world does he know?”

          You smile, “He saw the footage from the top of the Wayne tower, you were stealing from.”

          “He didn’t come.”

          “He was on his way, already tracked Slade’s headquarters down and everything, when it suddenly blew up, he knew that your team had made things right. The Brotherhood of Evil was a learning experience too, and you saved the world from Trigon. When it comes down to it, you’ve done a lot of good Dick. And you’ve made a lot of friends too.”

          He smiles, “It’s the bi-yearly get together. Pizza party.”

          You groan, “Please tell me you at least eat some healthy things.”

          He smirks, “I make Alfred proud every once in awhile.”

          “Good.”

          You pass him the elephant and he smiles and you say, “I never thought you’d leave her behind.”

          He shrugs, “I outgrew her.”

          You just smile, “When you first came to live with us you refused to let her go. Took her everywhere, for that first year.”

          Dick just smiles, “You guys homeschooled me for that first year. I didn’t have to let her go.”

          You laugh, “Still, you took her to all the Wayne foundation events, to restaurants, when we’d visit your dad at work. You even insisted that she be buckled in. You also insisted on taking her to that theme park. I was against it, I just knew she’d get put down somewhere, but Bruce insisted that everything would be fine.”

          “I’d been with you guys for about eight months at that point, I was at the tail end of my Robin training.”

          You nod, “Sure enough you left her there. You were in tears, you kept saying I have to have her, we have to get her back, she’s family. And then at some point you look up at me and Bruce and you said, ‘Please Mommy, please Daddy, we have to go search for her.’ That was the first time you called us Mom and Dad. It wouldn’t become a regular thing until a few months later, but in that moment your dad and I knew we’d move heaven and earth to make you happy.”

          Dick just smiles, “That was the first time he took me out as Robin. He called it the case of the missing elephant. He helped me track her down. Someone had thrown her in the trash on top of some nachos.”

          You smile, “I had to hand wash her, and then throw her in the washing machine three times to get all that cheese off. It’s amazing she doesn’t have any stains.”

          There’s a moment of silence before he says, “I’m sorry I didn’t stay in contact.”

          You pull him in for a hug, “It’s okay, baby boy. You can make it up by coming to dinner this Friday.”

          “Mom, I don’t know if I’m …”

          You cut him off, “He misses you Dick. You’re his son, and whatever that stupid argument was about three years ago, it’s forgotten.”

          “He really wants to see me?”

          You smile, “He talks about you all the time, how proud he is of what you’ve accomplished.”

          He smiles and says, “I’ll be there.”

          “Good, you can meet your new brother.”

          His eyes go wide, “You had a, but the papers didn’t say anything about …”

          You smirk, “His name is Jason, Bruce found him trying to take the wheels off the Batmobile. He’s in training right now.”

          Dick smiles, “Good, Batman needs a Robin, and I’ve been thinking it might be time to change things up. New identity for a new chapter and all that.”

          You lean down and kiss the top of his head, “As long as Dick Grayson remains that sweet, caring, and noble boy that I’ve always known, I think that sounds wonderful.”

          He kisses your cheek, “I’ll see you Friday, Mom.”

          You smile and leave his room, slipping on the mask again before you go. Waiting outside the door are all the teen heroes. You smile and say, “Speedy, Kid Flash, you have his back right?”

          Wally just grins and says, “Always Batmom, you know that.”

          You turn to the rest of his immediate team, “Thank you for taking such good care of my son. It’s good to see he’s made excellent friends.” They’re too stunned to say anything else. You leave the tower without another word. You reach home several hours later, to find Bruce waiting up for you despite the hour.

          “Jason asleep?” you ask.

          He just smiles and says, “Yep, he and Alfred baked cookies all day, and you know what a task master Alfred is when it comes to his kitchen.” He pauses before asking, “How’s our oldest son?”

          “Coming to dinner on Friday.”

          “He’s okay though?”

          You nod, “The picture of health, seems like he made some pretty good friends, too.”

Bruce just smiles and says, “Thank God.”

          You grab his hand, “Come on Caped Crusader, time for bed.”

          He come with you, wrapping an arm around your shoulders and says, “Bed sounds absolutely divine.”

hi! I love your art! I was wondering if you could make a tutorial on how to add variety to drawing characters. all my characters look like carbon copies of each other with different hairstyles. thanks!

I wish I could make an extensive tutorial about this but tbh I’m not an expert on the subject. I’ll try to give you some written tips though!

I think the main reason why lots of people have problems with variety is the fear (sometimes subconscious) of making your character look ‘ugly’.

First of all, something I’d recommend doing this, but instead of trying to achieve the ‘perfect face’, try doing a bunch of different ones and keep them! Also, here’s some actual tutorials to help you out (x) (x)

One very good exercise is drawing your friends, trying to capture their main features. Maybe their face is very long? They have big lips? Small eyes? This is amazing for lots of reasons because:

-you’ll practice a lot
-you don’t need to bother with lineart
-by staring at their photos for so long, you’ll see how different real humans look and you can use such features for your characters
-you can show it to them if you’re satisfied!!

I’d also recommend to look at how your favourite artists draw faces and specific features, you can definetely take some of them and merge them in your style!

This wasn’t much of a tutorial but I hope it was helpful nonetheless! Thank you for the compliments and have a good day!

Oh noes! Monsters have attacked, and drove all the tourists into the sea!

They’re either a creature entirely unknown to science, or a supernatural occurrence! This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime thing to see–

…oh. 

Never mind, I guess they aren’t, ‘cause none of the vacationers… 

…who were holding their cameras the entire time bothered to take a single photo of the monsters.

What you got at Starbucks? The world’s gotta know, STAT. Incredible encounter with real-life monstrosity? No need to–…  

…wait, what’s going on with the height of this guy’s pants?

Forget the public not documenting a monumental scientific breakthrough, those pants are way more deserving of a post. Never mind this whole plot, I want a whole movie about that guy!

During my transit in America, I decided to pray (of course openly) and there was PoC who came to me and greeted me with Salaam as I greeted him with Waleikum Assalaam and we both smiled at each other, he then left. Then there was an African American family who transited from London to the States who I (and two Swedish friends) had the delight to converse with after they saw me doing the morning prayer in the airport, all of us were waiting for the plane to our respective homes, so it was like a sleepover at the airport, haha. This family was so nice and it was a real delight to be able to talk them! Just for a slight moment, I made quite some friends during our stay in the Airport. We had so much fun, that I just needed to take a photo together before we all parted our ways…

lmfao do not tag 'photographers on tumblr' unless you're a real photographer.

this is probably my favorite snarky anon comment genre.

you CAN’T be something - unless you are a “real” something.

I always want to know:

  • OK so what are the guidelines?!?! 
  • How do I know if I am a “real” photographer?
  • I also tagged the photo “musicians on tumblr” …so…that is OK? WHY?
  • How do I qualify to be a “real” musician, but not a “real” photographer?
  • Why is someone so perturbed by this? Watching my blog so very closely and reading every tag? WTF?!?!

lmfao indeed - perhaps when you mature a little bit you will see how silly this ”outrage” is? If not - you might wanna take a break and perhaps read about human behavior - try to understand your own motivations here. Maybe someone shut YOU down and now you feel the need to lash out at others that TRY?

My only real concern is that someone might take it seriously and decide they don’t want to take the chance of trying because some little kid sends an anonymous comment that makes them feel like they CAN’T do something. I’m used to this stuff - a lot of people aren’t able to brush it off.

Such strange behavior…

my honest advice for all new SB’s

1. NO MONEY NO HONEY 
this is our motto. our religion. don’t you dare fucking touch that nasty old man until you get yo money. 


2. KEEP A LITTLE BIT OF YOU FOR YOU

protect your soul - protect your sanity and self esteem. i dont even really dress the same in vanilla life as i do in the sugar world. I have my own persona, just so that i can keep a little bit of vanilla me away from this mental world. you need to be on your game at all times girls. I also have a job too, the bowl doesn’t consume my life. have other hobbies, other sources of income. be smart.


3. DON’T GIVE IN
unfortunately a lot of these men will try to manipulate you, and generally take the fucking piss. would a woman their own age deal with this shit? of course not. don’t give in to their bullshit. don’t accept a low offer, don’t raw fuck him, don’t get yourself in a situation you can’t get out of. 

4. DATE VANILLA BOYS AND GET VANILLA DICK
life is about balance. i think this is really important to not just associate male attention and sex with sugaring, you need to be able to separate it from real life. 

5. STAY SAFE
let someone know where you are and what you’re wearing. i screenshot their account, text message exchange, photo etc. all to my best mate so there’s at least a record somewhere before something cunty happens and he blocks you. be picky about who you meet up with hunz, there’s a LOTTT of fakes out there. send your location to a pal.

ALWAYS REMEMBER. THESE MEN ARE LOSERS. THEY ARE LITERALLY PAYING YOU TO GO OUT WITH THEM. 

this shit is really fucked up at times. you’ve just got to roll with it and stay safe and enjoy each occasion while it lasts. nothing is certain and you don’t know what could happen. make the most out of the men you’re talking to. they are smart and successful. learn something.

Jason Todd/Red Hood X Reader- Self Defense?

Warning: Swearing, guns

“I don’t see how this is necessary, Jay,” you said nervously, examining the gun in your hand.  “I have a wooden bat in the apartment.”

“Please just do this for me,” Jason sighed, “just for self defense.”

You nodded, biting your bottom lip as you examined the gun again, “Fine.”

He smiled, making your insides melt, and placed his hands around yours.  He shifted your fingers, showing you how to properly hold the pistol and stand.  Jason was in a mood ever since someone broke into your shared apartment, luckily nothing valuable was stolen, but he couldn’t risk having you in danger without knowing how to properly shoot a gun.  

“-and then you just pull the trigger.  Got it?”

You nodded, flicking off the safety and aiming the pistol, and pulled the trigger.  The gun jolted your arms slightly, but not as much as you thought it would.

“Do I just unload the whole clip?” you asked Jason, looking back to him.

He nodded, “Try and aim for the chest or head.”

“I thought this was just for self defense!” you shouted, your eyes widening.

“It is!  Just aim where I told you to aim,” Jason gestured to the target.  

Turning back to the target, you aimed and fired, not stopping until you were out of bullets, “There!  You happy?!”

Jason pressed a button to your right, making the paper target come to you, “(Y/N)?”

“Yes?” you asked, staring at the piece of paper.

“If this was a real man, you would have shot his dick off,” Jason said before bursting out laughing, clutching his stomach.  “Ohmy- ohmygosh this is fucking hilarious!”

“I didn’t mean to go for that area!” you yelled, placing the gun on the small table in front of you. “Why are you laughing?  This is not funny!”

“It is!” he laughed, wiping the tears off his face.  “I need to take a picture of this.”  Before you could stop him, Jason pulled out his phone and took a photo.  “Wait til Roy sees this.”

“Can you please stop making a big deal out of this?!”

a DAMN GOOD IGNIS MOMENT.



But really, the more I watch it the more I realise it’s not only a fantastic Ignis moment, it’s a fantastic Chocobros moment in general? REALLY LONG POST AHEAD + UNFINISHED GAMEPLAY WRITING BUT THIS SCENE

Lemme start with Ignis because duh (if you’ve seen anything out of me the past two weeks, it’s probably been Ignis related). He’s been pretty passive about losing his eyesight up until this point. He calls it a minor sacrifice in the grand scheme of things. When Noctis and Gladio fight on the train, Ignis says nothing, even though part of the argument is his own injury. He only tries to stop Gladio by saying his name; Prompto is the one who tries to break it up (more in a moment. anyway not that Ignis really could break it up rn but you know) He’s been optimistic enough about it, though. “I’ll manage somehow” when you invite him into the mines. “This is considerably harder than I expected” he says about fighting. But sometimes you hear the boys say something and Iggy just sort of sighs. They’re dancing around him, and his injury, and the argument, and this scene is where it culminates.

The first time he actually says that it isn’t okay is because of their friendship hitting a low point, rather than his actual injury. But he is so, so aware of that injury and how it has the potential to drag them down. He still says “I would remain with you all. Til the very end” because these are his brothers and he damn well plans to, but that said.

This is the first time we hear Ignis raise his voice, I think. Not including battle cries and the like. Which is saying a lot because this boy is very, very calculated on his emotions. (ie later on when Prompto falls off the train, you hear the very audible difference in Noctis’s voice vs Iggy’s) He’s Crownsguard, Noctis is his king, he will do anything for him, and believes he has no reason to complain even if he has gone blind. But that’s a Big Thing. His yelling in this scene exactly “I know full well!” is finally, finally his frustration coming out and it’s triggered because of their bickering (or anti-bickering, since they aren’t really… speaking much).

He says he is willing to bow out if he starts to slow them down, which imo is like asking him to suffer a physical injury all over again (he is Crownsguard, Noctis is his king, he will do anything for him) but he still will DO IT because he won’t be a burden.

He goes on to give Noctis what, I think, is a much needed confidence boost. “A king pushes onward always, accepting the consequences and never looking back” and in the opening sentences for the next chapter, it literally uses those same words to describe Noct’s reaction to Ardyn’s trick: never looking back. (Also never looking back is exactly what Ignis is doing right now, which is why the choice to focus the camera so much on his scars in that moment is AMAZING.)

He continues with that to tell Gladio that Noct will be king and he will rule, but “only once he’s ready”. And this is SO important. Gladio’s interaction with Noct is painful at least and rage inducing at worst (more below) but not only does Noct need to hear this, Gladio does, too. They can push Noctis into that throne but he will never be able to lead until he is ready, and that involves coming to terms with some very, very heavy stuff that’s been happening. Everybody doesn’t handle grief the same way and they’re all having a hard go at it in very different ways thanks to the events of late.

So all of this makes this the DAMN GOOD IGNIS MOMENT. But it’s also really good for the rest of them, both in mentioned ways and others, but since I’m apparently waxing poetic
