for the past couple months ive been working on a huge playlist to send off my favorite show ever with a smile, but it ended up being so long that i split it into two parts. the first half is more upbeat and optimistic while the second half is more bittersweet.
Hi! do you have any tips on anatomy? i struggle so much at it. your art is so cute btw!!!
hi anon!! thank u so much!! im gonna try my best to offer some tips to u!!!! im still learning with anatomy as well (& im not so good with tutorials…) so bare with me:
SIMPLIFY AND BREAK DOWN EVERYTHING IS MY #1 PIECE OF ADVICE. for example lets start small with a hand. instead of looking at a reference or ur own hand and trying to perfectly capture every detail, look at the basic shape!! its p much a square for ur palm, 4 sticks of varying sizes, and as i have described here the little pouring part of a teapot (idk what its called) for a thumb.
u can apply this anywhere!!! just like the hand, other parts of the body like legs and arms have basic shapes too!! ive seen many artists explain it this way so i picked it up as well, but they have this rhythm where one side is curved and the other is straight (its more subtle in realistic art, but if ur going for cartoony u can exaggerate this too). depending on the drawing or sometimes if my drawing is small i’ll just make straight rectangles for arms or legs but rly it will make things more interesting and technically correct if u show these variations in the appendage shapes.
really the best thing in art ever for me is to simplify simplify simplify, im not great @ anatomy but learning to break things down and represent them in the most minimalistic ways has rly helped me a lot and made my anatomy look better too. to be honest i have not done figure drawings in ages and i rarely use real life references when drawing (IM NOT ADVOCATING FOR DOING SO, I KNOW IT HELPS MANY PEOPLE A LOT BUT I JUST CANT EVER GET INTO IT). whenever i use real life reference, i feel like my art becomes stiff since i tend to replicate the image too closely thus making a cartoony style have the proportion and anatomy of a real person which doesnt really fit the style.. i prefer to study the work of other artists especially animators since they have a great grasp on appealing simplification and stylized anatomy (bc u know its hard to have an animated show thats super detailed). craig mccracken and genndy tartakovsky both have really cool simplistic cartoon styles so i draw a lot of inspiration from their art (and i hope to use varying shapes and exaggerate my anatomy more like theirs as well).
(one little other important thing i didnt rly mention but ill keep it short since everyone says this. of course u have to practice too. i know it sucks to hear “just keep doing it” from everyone when ur frustrated with ur abilities and dont want to keep doing it, but continuing to draw bodies will boost ur abilities so much. u can look at art and read a million tutorials, but actually drawing will continuously build up ur muscle memory for drawing arms, legs, etc and after a while it comes naturally!!)
tldr practice & study not just from real life but look at how other artists break down and simplify shapes of the body. also remember art doesnt have to have flawless realistic anatomy to look good! there are so many incredible artists who bend the rules of anatomy whether its as a stylistic choice or to exaggerate emotion or perspective, etc.
last night i realized that usually the rich-poor relationship is the girl being a rich, elegant and preppy gal full of luxuries and the boy being a humble, poor (or not sooooo wealthy) guy, kinda like in lady and the tramp or the famous ship formed by serena van der woodsen and dan humphrey in gossip girl !! sooooo why not make a plot: where MUSE A is a rlyyy rich boy, always dressing in suits or expensive clothes from famous brands ((even his sweatpants cost lots of $$$)), elegant, with this misterious thing around him and maybe kind of an asshole, (((+++points if he’s a bit of a womanizer, dont mistake it w being a fuckboy they different things ok !!!!))) with high standards when it comes to women, and MUSE B is a humble middle class girl that could work in a not-so-chic place like a cafeteria or some fast food place??? or is just a student and she has to work hard to pay her studies bc her bank is full of - - - and not $$$, her personality could go from being classy, shy and a rly nice girl to ‘i hate u and ur money i dun lyk u!!!’ type of girl, its up to your imagination idc?? ofc they dont know each other so they could meet anywhere. u can do a lot of things w this plot tbh that’s why its so great just let your imagination fly and yeah!!!!
winnie winnie, my super winnie winnie winnie!!! ~ so happy that you're back :) i have a somewhat angsty question: what are some fights the girls have gotten into w the boys? not like super huge fights but also not something that they just brush off. something that does get rectified though or helps them grow either together or individually.
ooooh this is a good q 🤔💭!!!!!
yoongi & hoseok: i think these both would be a time thing bc i feel like they lose themselves in their work the most n therefore lose track of time often. but the way they handle it is diff like yoongi is a “sh*t, i lost track of time. sorry.” text and hoseok is a “OHHHHHHH MY GOD IM SO SORRY I DIDNT REALIZE WHAT TIME IT WAS I SWEAR I DIDNT FORGET” phone call !!! n the girls react differently too like hoseok’s y/n isn’t afraid of confrontation so she’d vent her frustrations right away & hoseok would just take the scolding bc it was his bad u kno? and yoongi’s y/n would say she’s mad but i feel like there wouldn’t be a conversation but i can see both hoseok & yoongi being rly harsh out of frustration sometimes like a “it’s not my fault that i’m busy/ it’s not like i forgot on purpose/ god why are u so mad?” response that rly turns it into a full blown fight bc both sides are like how can YOU be so insensitive towards ME n i know ppl think opposite bc of their images but i think hoseok would be more irritable than yoongi so he’d be upset longer like it takes more time for him to recollect himself after the fuse goes off & i think since yoongi is pretty rational he’d be quicker to want to reconcile when the fight is big & feelings were srsly hurt like he’d be the first to say “sorry i shouldn’t have said it like that” & explain where he’s coming from while also trying to understand where ur coming from. hoseok would get there too but it would just take more time 2 calm down especially considering that his partner is a lil hot headed too
chokeslam: jeongguk is v attentive so i don’t think they’d fight over things like him not texting her enough or not making time !!! there’s a very tiny barrier separating what u can & cant joke about and i think on some rare occasions one of them will get one of their toes across it & the other will go off like the buzzers @ a bowling alley 🚨❗️🚨❗️🚨❓❗️n it goes from lighthearted teasing to why the hell would u say that to me 😡🤒🤧 ??? but i think the climax of the conflict ends quickly once the other person realizes what they said that was hurtful n apologizes but i think the thought of it lingers for a few days especially if jeongguk is the one that went too far i think he’d feel rly disappointed n guilty bc he kinda prides himself in knowing her super super well so he’d be upset that he didn’t read the situation well or wasn’t able 2 tell that kind of thing would hurt her feelings :( he’d think abt it a lot even after she’s already gotten over it
namjoon: “…………….namjoon are u listening to me?” namjoon, on his phone: was very much not listening. u can see where i’m going with this. joon’s world is v busy n she understands that but i think she would expect him to at least pay attention to her when they’re together ?? even if she’s just complaining abt something or talking abt food she saw on instagram and ESPECIALLY since she listens 2 all of his 3am ramblings after he just had an epiphany about how life & pringles are similar “don’t make ur hand smaller to fit into the can, just like we shouldn’t make ourselves smaller to fit in w the norms of society. if u work hard enough u’ll find another solution *turns the can upside down*” if she can sit through that without losing focus then the least he can do is listen to her talk for 5 mins without letting something else take his attention !!!!! so i think that would rly make her angry 😡😡 & u KNOOOOOOOO namjoon is the type to look up from his phone like “huh ???😴” so that’d make it worse :/ & i think he’d claim that u know it’s not that big of a deal “food on insta isn’t that important anyway. u wanna eat? let’s go eat then” but it’s not the importance of what’s being talked abt but rather the importance of the person talking like ???? he should care he should listen ! especially bc there’s a rly strong emphasis on being equals in their relationship
(mun note: i’m so so sorry yusuke. woke up today looked at this and reGRETTED MY ENTIRE EXISTENCE)
(also sorry for the delay (blame tatsujun hell OTL)… on the other hand this is kinda properly rendered bc the blog has reached a follower milestone! O U O O OO OO YOU GUYS ARE GREAT THANK U ALL SO MUCH SOBS)
As stated previously, my job is to drum up excitement for the Sinclair Mansion. Problem is, there’s a lot of stuff I ain’t allowed to talk about yet due to plot spoilers and Salad has already shown off most of the characters.
What Salad has neglected to do is give a good idea as to what their personalities are like. This is where I come in. And what better way to do it than in shitpost format (at least for the ones that I have more than a passing knowledge of)!

hi hello i really enjoy reading u guys' hcs and fics (´∀｀*)…♡ may i request tsukishima getting all worked up after his short, and snarky, vb playing s/o (who's actually really good at it) gets benched in an important match bc she has bad blood with the captain and wouldn't let her play (he comforts her crying bc she works rly hard during training cough cough) yes ok that is all thank u so much for taking the time to read this and write it if ever have a good day, lovelies! ♡♡♡
Sorry that this took a while, it was kind of hard to write something since you basically had the whole story already written out for yourself! :)
He’s known for a while that you and your captain don’t particularly get along too well most of the time. That’s probably why you were sitting out on the bench during the match. Again.
As soon as the match is over, Tsukishima is there to meet you outside the gym, dragging you to a more secluded place where you can exhaust your frustration and anger.
This time it comes in the form of hot and angry tears, face red as you start to rant, words meshing together until it no longer makes sense. The blonde is livid that the captain continues to treat you like this even though you’re one of the best players on the team (not to be biased).
Tsukishima isn’t the best at communicating his feelings or comforting a girl when she’s in tears, but the best he can muster is a strong embrace and a soothing hand running along your back. It’s not much, but to you it means everything.
No, but for real, what IS Lances skincare routine?

Hey Cookster! So, i REALLY want to start digital drawing, but i don't know how to begin. I don't know how the programs work, I don't have enough money for a drawing tablet etc. Do you have any tips? (Btw, i'm in love with ur art) ( / *-* ) / ❤
aah thankiies ! Yea’ sure!(●´ω｀●)ゞ let meh try to help u !
first of all. don’t draw digitally.
//cough cough// for bein’ honest ,i don’t kno’ ur art skills but it’s better to draw traditionally the most u can. a graphic tablet doesn’t make any artist better like it would be a magic trick. Σ(･ิ¬･ิ)
IF u rly want it ,(ง ◕ั⌑◕ั)ว ⁾ (in the possibility of earnin’ money thanks to traditionnal art)then u need to be sure of ur choice. it’s expensive but try to buy the cheapest graphic tablet possible.Any size,any kind will be perfect for a beginner.
IF u rly absolutely can’t. Draw with ur mouse. i kno’ friends rly good at digital art and they exclusively use their mouse. MsPaint, gimp,FireAlpaca,krita ect..It’s all free art software !nothin stahp u,there r tons of tutorials for learnin’ how to use them !
Other tip: if u can’t draw 100% digitally(bc honestly, it’s hard) : draw traditionally, take a picture/scan ur art and color it digitally. that works too! //winky wonk// ｡(*^▽^*)ゞ
What do you reckon are the benefits of posting your poetry on tumblr (if theres not even a large chance of anyone stumbling across them) rather than just keeping it all in your notebook?
i’ve been stuck on this for daaaays bc i wanna give the best comprehensive answer but the Truth is contributing any kind of creative work on tumblr is a thorny business & i would urge anyone considering it 2 Rly think on it before they do. publishing my work on here was in a lot of ways a huge blessing but it comes w/ its own baggage.
i started writing on tumblr after a huge years long drought of not writing at all. it was great bc thru other ppl reblogging my work it gave me motivation to write & publish more. it also put me into contact w/ other writers which has been invaluable not only creatively but in my personal life. some of my greatest friends are ppl i met thru the writing community on here.
if ur not necessarily in it for the exposure (which is a double edged sitch i’ll get 2 later) then starting a sideblog for ur work like i did here is helpful because it in some ways keeps u accountable. i mean i say this & i haven’t posted a new poem on here in 3 weeks but u get my Drift. if accountability & motivation is an issue for u, then posting ur poetry on tumblr can help w/ that. it definitely reinvigorated my writing. its also cool bc u end up w/ this platform where u can v much visually see ur growth & how ur writing has changed. u could go to my writing tag on my main blog & do a quick /chrono & its V obvious that my style & interests have evolved.
that said. in all the ways tumblr can be a great place to write & engage w/ other ppl’s writing (look how many ppl have had books published thru their tumblr poetry!) it can also be a huge crapsack.
i think it can b rly dangerous for young/new/insecure writers to start off on here. we all want validation but if ur Soul reason for writing on tumblr is for ppl to see ur work u might b disappointed. it can be hard 2 get ur work seen & i know that can be v discouraging. so many ppl end up equating quality for notes & its just not true. the truth is some ppl just have a bigger following than u & that helps them get attention. u just need 2 keep that in mind & go into w/ realistic expectations.
the other thing is…people steal. straight up no sugar coating ppl will fucking steal ur shit. if they don’t do it blatantly then u’ll see it in other ways. sometimes they don’t do it on purpose. but it happens. it sucks. it doesn’t just happen to ppl who have 1k notes on a poem it happens 2 everyone. & its not just ppl w/ v little followers who plagiarize, sometimes its successful writing blogs w/ published books. every single one of my friends who publishes on tumblr has had their poem plagiarized at least once. its not a safe place to post ur writing.
bottom line: u have no control over how ppl choose to engage w/ ur work. when u post it to tumblr u leave urself rly vulnerable to a lot of shit. ppl will misappropriate & misuse ur writing if given the chance. if u still wanna do it, which is ur prerogative bc Hi, my friends & i still Definitely do it, this is my advice:
never post ur best work. save it. try to publish the best stuff thru a mag or journal or whatever. but keep ur best stuff 2 urself!! b a dragon sitting on a pile of dope poetry u won’t let strangers touch.
after that decide what 2 do w/ the rest. maybe u wanna post it & tag a couple friends. maybe u wanna make a writing blogue 2 workshop ur stories. mayb u just wanna write gay love poetry abt ur Girl where other Gays can see it. who knows! the world is ur oyster.. just b safe out there guys…
i feel so tired, he only call when he's sad or want sex. i'm so tired, so tired.
mannnn u gotta cut that shit off. he’s just using u whenever he needs something and u rly deserve so much better than that! tell him ur done and don’t pick up when he calls anymore. maybe even block his number! and then work towards loving urself and making urself happy by treating urself and hanging out with people who actually appreciate u. cutting toxic ppl out of ur life can be really hard at first but i swear it’s worth it in the end
