I don't think you should say fat people are oppressed. Fat people are treated unfairly by society but it's not comparable to oppression!! I'm not trying to be rude like it's good to promote different fat body types and acceptance but it's not like fat people face systemic oppression

I’m going to leave this here for everyone to reply and give this person a lesson. But remember that this user is just a child.

if ya dont mind me askin, but how do you make your character designs so original? like, i have a lot of trouble for doing the character's clothes and looks

Try starting out with thumbnails, or small drawings of the designs with a big brush to get the general shape. You can also look at multiple references of other characters/items to give you some inspiration.  I usually start with body type first, then face, then clothes. Modern human clothes without a theme are hard to make unique. That’s why I never make my settings normal, they are strange so all the characters can also be strange.

Strange = Unique, In my case of course, not everyone likes strange things.  When I design clothing I think “How can this be exaggerated, or weird, or different?”  Exaggeration is key to unique designs, make something super small or super big, just keep things balanced.  Sometimes I make a character, and it’s nearly perfect the first try. Most of the time I make a character and I have to re-design it 50 other times to get it right. So, don’t give up it’s all about experimenting and practicing~!

@risarino I can’t seem to tag you to reply to your question, but yes pmdd gives me nightmares too.

There are a few things that CAN help, but may not help..everyone is different.

Playing Music either on a radio/ihome or in headphones, could influence what type of dreams you have. You can put calm instrumentals on or lullabies.

Scent Sprays could help calm your mind. Spray some on your pillow, your blanket, and anywhere else around the room. I have a lavender spray by Fabreeze.

Those are the two things that i try, along with taking Midol Complete before bed. They dont always work, because our bodies get used to things so easily and they can work now but not later.

Pmdd is so hard to deal with, if you need anyone to vent to im here and will gladly listen/read. ❤

Hi! I really like your drawings with the Player Character so far but I wanted to ask if you could draw them fat in some pictures? .//.; It'd be really neat to occasionally see them as a different body type so everyone can relate!

Of course~! I want to try my best to give people the best experience. Though that said, there’s a lot of different body types that I can’t possibly all represent. So, I apologize in advance for this.

PAL is a template, a place holder for the viewer in the picture, to represent no one but just a blank person.

With Homestuck it’s easy to create your own headcanons for the characters because they’re so simple, but there are more than a few characters that a lot of people share a headcanon for, so when people go to cosplay them they feel discouraged because of their race or their weight or facial structure etc.

So when I draw stuff I always take into account that people do see themselves in these characters a lot and I try to give them different body types or races or facial features than the norm so maybe someone who was like oh no I can’t be that character I look nothing like them will see one of my drawings and go Oh! Look it looks like me I can do it!

I’m still trying to get better at drawing different body types and individualizing characters but I am trying
