and again, i will also have plenty of copies at cons i’m attending (my schedule is my about/sidebar)

i’m making a lot of new products this year so the overwhelming support with just this one has me very excited! thanks so much again TvT/

anonymous asked:

Hello! I love your artwork and in particular, I like how unique and distinguishable each and every one of your characters are! Do you have any tips in regards to character design? Especially clothing! I try my best to make my characters look unique, but I honestly struggle with designing the clothes and it ends up looking generic and bland! I have no idea how you do it and I'm not sure where to start!

Hey ! Thanks a lot ! Character design per se isn’t my specialty and when it comes to designing features and body types I don’t go for much variation (I do characters for fun, not for work, so I usually stick my usual style), so I’m mostly talking about clothing here. Honestly the best I can tell you is just to try and build a little visual library of your own with as many different things as possible, whether that’s just in your head by looking through exhibs and photos and people in the streets, or an actual place where you store your ideas (I use my ref blog and pinterest a lot for that). Try to look at what’s done around the world to get new ideas of shapes and patterns and color associations. Do crossed research with time period+world area. Even if you’re not going to design something historical, it might still give you ideas of cuts and such to integrate in a more casual design. Be super curious and try to understand how outfits are built and what makes a silhouette interesting !

How to Tumblr

or, things I wish I’d known when I joined:

I know there are a lot of other how-to posts out there, but with new folks joining all the time (hello, new friends!), here is my short list of “how to tumblr” – things that took me a while to learn and that I wish I’d known when I started two and a half years ago.  Here we go…

1. Download x-kit.  X-kit is a browser extension for Chrome or Firefox that will save your life. It makes this ridiculous website useable and allows you to do all sorts of things.  A few of the big ones are:

  • Wrap tags for easier reading.  People often ramble in their tags, either about fandom or about personal things, and having all tags appear in a block of text with a post is much easier than trying to scroll across.
  • Add tracked tags to your sidebar so you can see as soon as a new post with that tag is posted. This is helpful for communicating with people and for keeping up with fandom; for example, I have fleurdeneuf and nine x rose tracked so I know when someone has tagged me in a post or if a new Nine x Rose fic has appeared.
  • Blacklist tags for things you don’t want to see on your dash.  If you follow people who have different interests than you, you can block posts about things that you don’t care about to keep your dash cleaner and more manageable.  Blacklisting a tag is also useful if a certain topic might trigger you.
  • Save sent posts to an outbox!  (This only works on the computer you’re using, so if you send messages at the library or at work, you won’t see them in your outbox on your personal computer, and vice versa.)

2. Open your ask box.  Tumblr doesn’t do this automatically, so if you want people to be able to send you messages (“asks”), you need to go into your settings and open your ask box.  You can also choose whether you want people to be able to send you messages anonymously. I’ve always had anon turned off, but it can be useful if you have shy followers or if people want to message you when they aren’t logged in.

3. Tag your posts.  Tag your posts.  Tag your posts.  Tagging is good etiquette for a few reasons:

  • If you create original posts (fic, art, gifs, even just publishing an ask), tumblr tracks the first five tags.  This is how people (whether they follow you or not) will find your posts.  With that in mind, the first five tags should include important info, like ship (ficandchips), pairing (nine x rose, ten x rose, etc.), and any groups or people you might want to notify of the post (the person you’re answering in an ask or tagging in a meme, the group you want to see your new fic, etc.).  Tags six through twenty will appear in the new catch-all search feature, but not in the tag tracking system that most people use.  So in general, tags six and above are good for rambling, your own blog’s organization, and your followers’ dashes.
  • Tagging is also important when reblogging posts.  Reblogged posts’ tags don’t track in the search engine, but they’re still useful because they allow you to keep your blog organized for your own purposes, and they also help the people you follow (the same rules as for original posts’ tags six and above).  Your followers can find your posts on a topic (for a doozy of an example, see my Christopher Eccleston tag), and also block posts that they don’t care about or that would bother them (see the note on x-kit Blacklist above).
  • Tag your hate.  It’s generally accepted practice on tumblr for a specific character or ship tag to be for posts that are positive.  For example, ninth doctor is the Ninth Doctor tag, and that’s where you post Nine things, and where you go if you want to find Nine things.  Nothing negative about Nine should be in that tag.  On the other hand, if you don’t like a character or a ship (or a showrunner…), tag it with “anti” first (for example, anti moffat).  

4. Start a queue.  This isn’t mandatory, of course, but if you post a lot, it’s nice to spread your posts out over the course of a day rather than spamming your followers with a bunch of posts all at once.  My queue is typically set to 15 posts per day, but you can set yours anywhere from 1 to 50.  This is also why people use special queue tags, to distinguish between posts queued in advance from those posted in real time.

5. Keep your commentary in the tags.  If you really like someone’s post, your opinions usually belong in your tags.  You can ramble and flail as much as you want there.  If you add a comment to someone’s post, that comment is going to appear on the post of anyone who reblogs it from you, and anyone who reblogs it from them, and so on, which clutters a post and the OP’s notes.  If your comment isn’t vital to the post, it belongs in the tags.  There are exceptions to this rule, of course; if you’re having a conversation with someone, for example, or if you want to @ mention a friend to make sure they see a post. But by and large, feedback such as “This is awesome!” or “LOL” does not need to be attached to a post forever and should be kept to the tags.

6. Don’t repost.  Reposting is when you copy someone’s original post and paste it into a new post of your own.  It is stealing from the OP and it is generally a ploy to get lots of notes. Don’t do it.

7. If you reblog an ask meme from someone, it’s polite to participate in their meme.  This isn’t an official rule, but it is a personal preference and a friendly rule of thumb.

8. Tumblr is buggy.  Seriously.  TUMBLR IS BUGGY.  There will be times when you @ mention someone in a post, and it won’t work. There will be times when someone tags you and it won’t show up in your tracked tag.  There will be times when you send someone an ask and will never get a response because tumblr ate the ask instead of sending it to them.  These things happen to everyone.  Roll with it and try again.

9. Tumblr is weird.  Seriously.  TUMBLR IS WEIRD.  It is hard to create an account and jump in.  It is hard to meet people when it seems like everyone already knows each other. It is hard to follow people and reach out and not get a response or someone following you back.  It is hard to reblog a meme and get no feedback.  It takes time and perseverance and luck. Tagging your posts so people see them helps.  Saying hi to people whose blogs you like helps.  Reblogging posts and flailing in the tags helps.  Participating in other people’s memes (and eventually doing some of your own) helps.  Talk to people, be polite, and give it time.

The One Chapter 4: The One Who Will Live On

Cullen gets to grips with this strange new girl that’s dropped into his world.

Since Tumblr seems to be making posts with external links unsearchable, if you’d prefer to read it on AO3, you can find the link to my AO3 page in the sidebar. My Tumblr masterpost is here. As of today, that masterpost will also contain the link to my Spotify playlist for this story. Read on to find out why…

I rubbed my eyes, trying to clear the blurriness from my vision. I should have gone to bed hours ago, but there was too much to do. We were still trying to calculate the supplies that had survived the destruction of the Temple, make a count of who had been killed in the initial explosion and who had been killed in the fighting until Lady Trevelyan–now being acclaimed by the people as the Herald of Andraste–had stabilised the Breach. And I should make a start on the letters of condolence to the families of our soldiers.

Deciding that maybe a walk would do to clear my head, I left my tent and decided to do a circuit of the town. Maybe the people would take some comfort from seeing the leadership of the Inquisition present and moving among them. I had barely come through the gates when Varric called me over.

“Curly, you met with Oracle earlier. I couldn’t get anything from the Seeker. How did it go?”

“What do you mean?” Cassandra had mentioned that Varric had taken immediately to the shy woman from another world. Having seen the way he was with Merrill in Kirkwall it didn’t surprise me. Varric seemed to be a better big brother to the misfits he gathered around him than Bartrand had ever been to him.

“I mean,” he said sounding exasperated, “is she going to be shipped off to Val Royeaux as a scapegoat for this mess? The Seeker was pretty quick to jump on her earlier and the kid’s obviously terrified.” He squinted at me. “You can’t possibly think she’s the genius behind all this.”

reyyskywalker-deactivated201612  asked:

Can I ask you what you think of Hope van Dyne? Because I really wanna know what you think of her!

Welllllllll, I think I already did that, in one of my very first “reaction posts” after seeing the movie for the first time, so I’m gonna keep it brief here (since I feel like I’m saying the same stuff over and over and over)

  • She’s first depicted as yet another one of those strong women marvel is so obsessed with depicting, BUT they also managed to also show her vulnerable side too, and it had nothing to do with another man’s life/death/etc but more about HER and how she felt unloved by her father/unworthy since he kept rebuking her, and also the grief over her mother that she eventually can’t bear when Hank Pym finally tells her about what really happened (often these strong women only get emo whenever a man is dying/dead and like the rest of the time they are so pokerface it’s annoying, so for once I was GLAD to see a woman being ambitious but also kind and a bitch to the MC before eventually showing that she can ALSO be a good friend/team player when she warms up to him and also a sly double agent with Cross! SO MANY DIFFERENT SIDES OF HOPE! WOW!)
  • Hope has the prettiest smile ever and I feel like this needs to be stated here on this post
  • I love her smile
  • Hope has like 5 different smiles and I just loved watching Evangeline’s flawless acting while she was serving us her performance like the queen she is
  • I love how she can be assertive/bossy/act like a total bitch at some points (yelling @ Scott at the beginning/leaving him with a bunch of poisonous ants all by himself/ignoring the fuck out of him lmao/punching him in the face (nope, she wasn’t trying to go for the hand)/CALLING THE POLICE ON HIS SAD CAT BURGLAR-ING ASS/THROWING HER DAD OUT OF HIS OWN FUCKING COMPANY) – and then at others she’ll ask about Scott’s daughter :3 and give him tips on how to control the ants :”3 and have an emotional breakdown in front of that dork (aka Scott Lang) without caring because she doesn’t consider emotions as a weakness, she’s not a stereotypical “don’t let them see you cry” “strong willed badass kickass strongass woman”. BLESS, ok?
  • I loved that she is so confident in herself, she doesn’t always need to have a smart-ass remark. It’s all in her gestures. And the way she mooooves is just so smoooooooth, idk if I’m just being weird about this bbbut!!! Sometimes instead of answering back, she just tips her head down and then slooooowly turns around and throws one last smile in the person’s direction before walking away and basically that’s the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen
  • Loved that she had ambitions, omg!!!!! Like literally show me ONE mcu lady who wants something FOR HER FUCKING SELF?? I’m pretty sure you won’t find one – they are all subordinated to someone (a man, surprise surprise!) and always fight for something so much bigger than them, etc etc; but this here was amazing because Hope just wanted to do the job for herself ALSO she just wants a suit for herself. The fucking SMUGNESS AF in the scene where she gets her wasp suit is absolutely AMAZING. All in all she didn’t want to have a boss (her dad) and often wouldn’t listen to him and for example grabs the ear apparel thing and starts talking to the ants without his permission – and I loved that she knew her own worth and didn’t give a flying fuck about Scott
  • SHE IS COMPASSIONATE AF – do you remember that she tried to help Cross? After all he’d done and said to her about her dad, even after trying to kill her dad & Scott? She still tells him something like “it’s not too late, it’s just the suit altering the chemistry of your brain, this isn’t you, let me help you” etc. She doesn’t just go like punching and shooting the bad guys until the job is done. HELLO HUMAN & FORGIVING CHARACTER
  • MY OTHER MOST FAVORITE THING is how she responded to Scott’s shit once they were more or less friends, like when Hank catches them making out and he starts mock-denying it and accusing her and leaving so fast and instead of losing her time/energy/breath trying to argue with him or her dad, she’s just like…………………………..*rolls eyes* (I’m so thankful they didn’t give her fake-ass punch line at that moment)
  • She’s basically TOO COOL FOR THIS SCHOOL!!!!!!!!
  • and not another cliché BADASS-MOTHERFUCKING WHAT-ARE-EMOTIONS-FOR female character *coughs* natasha romanoff maria hill pepper potts *coughs*
  • hallelujah mcu, you’re slowly learning <3
  • ps: check out my new sidebar gif (I wanted one of her beautiful smile, but I couldn’t find a good scene so I’ma wait till the DVD is out to change it!)
  • pps: imagine her when she finally meets Cassie omfg????? they’re sooooo gonna SIDE AGAINST SCOTT LMAO

Dear Tumblr, 

If I can barely afford convention tickets, I cannot afford things like a brand new truck or a refrigerator. These ads that move while you scroll are completely useless and just makes Tumblr run slower and loads new ads every 15-20 seconds. 

Sincerely, someone who has used this damn website for over three years
