i'm crying all my tears

anonymous asked:

Hey uh.. not to bother you by any means.. but can I get a link to those tips for drawing people crying you did once?? I looked through all the tags and couldn't find it myself, sorry..

Oh, it’s no bother! http://whatisthiscutenonsense.tumblr.com/post/147379834506/eruhamster-retroautomaton-some-crying-tips 

But honestly, I’m not actually too happy with those anymore. They’re pretty old. I still sort of hold the same value when I draw them, but here’s some more updated tips, if that’s alright. 

One of the biggest complaints I got with those tips was that just a single tear is good enough. Well yes and no. Tears are just a helpful tool, and of course not everyone cries the same, so yes, a single tear can be just as impactful, as long as your emotion and context carries the message. 

On the opposite end of the spectrum, there’s heavy crying. And this can take many forms. Again, the face has to carry the intensity of the emotion; the tears are just there to emphasize it. More intensity, (for some people) does tend to include more liquids and leaking. 

And of course none of it has to be perfect or even. As I love to touch on, crying is messy and ugly. It brings out the most strained emotions. So none of it has to be symmetrical to get the point across- if anything, it gives it more movement. 

I of course draw in a more cartoony fashion, so if you did want to go on the more realistic end of the spectrum, you can focus on the actual physics of tears and how act and react on the face. More realistically, they come from the inner eye, and are much smaller. They tend to fall in wayward paths, slowly, but  sperraticly, and in droplets or thin streams. You can also add streak marks and flush up the face, depending on the subject. 

I’m glad you liked my old tips, and I hope these new ones help! 

I just noticed I’m creating a small army of voice RPers off the top of my head I’ve had 4 anons tell me they were inspired by me to do a voice RP blog and I just

i know there are a tonne of these but i just need to tell people how much I love, adore and respect Min Yoongi.  He’s pretty much laid his heart out on an international platform for us and honestly like he’s been through so much I am so proud of him for what he’s done, what he’s doing and what he’ll do in the future. 

I’m honoured that he has decided to share himself with us. Please continue to support and love him as well as the rest of bangtan.

Thank you Yoongi, for everything. 

I’m feeling really proud of Pyo right now. The fact that he is going to direct, plan, and produce a play that he’s going to enjoy makes me so happy for him. The amount of love I feel right now for this pure man is indescribable. I know he’s going to do well since he pursued being a play actor and graduated from Hanlim Arts High School. He has my full support and love!
