i'm not really understanding this picture

Heyyyyyy I understand if u don’t like sjm but could you please not refers to her stuff as acotrash? Honestly for no other reason than bc it seems like you are thinking of people who like the books as lesser? And I might be totally wrong with your intentions here, but that’s just how it came across. I love your blog and all of the really diverse books and your amazing pictures- Have a lovely day! ❤️

Look, I really appreciate your kind words, but maybe you also weren’t around when I did my entire senior thesis on analyzing ACOTAR. 

The ACOTAR fandom sent me death threats during that time and were not open to having any type of constructive conversations about the series. I’m not saying the entire fandom is like that, but I’m still extremely put off from the fandom because of it. 

I am sorry if it offended you, really. However, we all need to keep in mind that we are all different individuals, and will all have different opinions. 

(Technically it’s the 15th since it’s 1:38am)

So there’s one bit near the end of the Genocide Run that hit me pretty hard, personally. And as with most things that hit me very hard emotionally, it was a random almost throwaway line that wasn’t written to be focused on that much. But whether it intentionally held the meaning I took from it or not, it doesn’t change the fact that I DID take meaning from it.

When Flowey is monologuing near the very very end of the game and explaining what he went through, he talks about how he lacks the ability to feel anything for the people around him, and how desperately, frantically, he wishes he did. He talks about how, at first, he tried to help people. He talks about how at first it seemed to help, but every time it was time to let go, to move on, he got scared and couldn’t do it. He’d panic and reset instead. And how then he’d be right back where he started. And he would try helping everyone again.

But it became hollow. Everyone always said the exact same things, and did the exact same things. And nothing changed. And nothing new ever happened.

And eventually, just out of sheer desperation for SOMETHING new, he decided to kill everyone. And how that was at first a relief, but even that grew stale and empty as he did it over and over again. Until he was left with nothing, and there was nothing to care about, either for better or worse, but he couldn’t let go either. So he was trapped in this world where nothing ever changed, and he couldn’t make himself leave.

It’s a sad story, but it’s also a bit of a gut punch because of its implications.

Maybe in time, the person playing the game, the actual human being behind the keyboard, not the pixel character they control, would find themselves in the exact same situation. Eventually, things in a game stop changing. Characters always say the same things, do the same things. And maybe in time, as boredom takes over, the player would also try a genocide game just for SOMETHING new. But eventually even that will become empty and lead to nowhere after you do it enough.

I can’t really say if that’s true or not. I can’t say it’s false either.

But It’s 2 years now. And a lot of us are still here. And more importantly a lot of us still care. Quite deeply in fact.

And maybe we won’t care forever, maybe the same thing will happen, or more likely, we’d be the ones able to let go and move on to other things and let go. Maybe there’s no escaping that.

But it’s been 2 years, and at least for now, we’re still here.

There is also the possibility I’ve considered, that since the insane success of the game was never expected or anticipated at all, that the level of love it caused in gamers was a complete and utter surprise, maybe their ability to never fall into that cycle of apathy and just how long they can keep going, caring as hard as ever, will also be a complete surprise that was never foreseen.

Or even more simply, maybe Flowey just needed to be shown, as with so many things, he was wrong about that too.

Who knows. Honestly I can’t say how things will look in time. It could either way.

But at least by year 2 we were still here.

i was tagged by @soft-almond and @mummasim and i’m so sorry this took so long to do i took this wayy too far.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ i have like 3 more posts about this so Look Out

anonymous asked:

I think I hurt a rib. I don't know what to do. I'm not out yet and I've been using ace bandages. I'm incredibly stupid. I'm sorry. Please if you help me I'll throw them all out and find a way to come out. Please? I'm so sorry. I live in usa.

Ren says:

Hi dear! You’re not stupid - we understand the draw of ace bandages, but it’s really, really, really important that you don’t ever use them again. Okay, my friend?

This is now an official Ribcage Troubleshooting Post!

This post isn’t a replacement for a doctor, but it can help you figure out whether you need to see a doctor, or what you should do until you can!

Look at this cool picture of some bones. That’s your ribcage, pretty nice eh? We’re gonna use this to figure out what’s up.

To give you a general idea of what’s going on, let me explain what’s up. That big bone in the middle, connecting the sides of your ribcage, is your sternum. It’s super important, since it helps protect some Serious Stuff, and anything that affects your ribs likely affects it!

Connected to your sternum on both sides are your collarbones (clavicles). You can usually see and feel your collarbones, since they’re very close to your skin.

To give you a sense of which rib is which, ribs 4, 5, or 6 are usually the ones that are just underneath breast tissue. (Some people have more than 10 ribs, but the last one is the last one!)

The blue parts of this diagram are made of costal cartilage, connecting the ribs and the sternum. Where the costal cartilage meets your ribs is called a costochondral joint. Where the costal cartilage meets your sternum, on the other hand, is called a sternocostal joint.

Over top of all this bone and cartilage is intercostal muscle. They go in between your ribs, filling the spaces, allowing you to breathe in and out.

So just how many ways can you injure all of this by binding unsafely?

  • fractured bone
  • bruised bone
  • bruised muscle
  • bruised cartilage
  • torn muscle
  • torn cartilage
  • inflamed muscle (costochondritis)
  • not to mention all the stuff that’s deep down underneath - you can seriously harm your lungs, for instance

Here comes the actual troubleshooting part.

  1. Which area of your ribcage hurts, and what is the pain like? (Tender? Shooting? Burning? Throbbing? Like something’s tearing? An ache, a sting?)
  2. Can you make physical contact with the area? Does any physical contact make the pain worse, or do you have to press gently to worsen it?
  3. Is the skin hot around the painful area, visibly red or bruised, or visibly swollen?
  4. When you press at the very top of your sternum (in between your collarbones) does it worsen the pain at your rib?
  5. Does it hurt to breathe, or is it difficult to breathe?
  6. Are you coughing, or coughing blood or mucus?
  7. Are you experiencing fatigue (like you’re really really sleepy), or are you dizzy?
  8. Check your pulse. Open up a timer with seconds on it, find your pulse, and count for one whole minute. Here’s an ask about healthy pulses (although YMMV if you are chronically ill).

If you cannot make physical contact with the area, are experiencing significant pain and/or difficulty breathing, are coughing blood, or answered yes to #4, go to the hospital. You may have broken or fractured a rib, or something worse. You need immediate medical attention.

If you can make physical contact with the area but it seriously hurts to do so, and are experiencing any of the above symptoms, go to the hospital.

If you can make physical contact with the area and it only hurts a little, are experiencing some pain but mostly when you press the painful area, are able to breathe normally, and are not coughing up any discharge, follow these instructions.

  • Stop binding. No arguments. Do not bind until your symptoms are gone.
  • Take an NSAID. These are over-the-counter painkillers like ibuprofen and naproxen. Acetaminophen/paracetamol will not help with inflammation, but will help with pain.
  • Ice the area for 20 minutes (don’t make direct contact with the skin - ice in a ziploc wrapped in a towel!). Rest it for 20 minutes. Heat for 20 minutes (heating pads or warm showers help) and rest again. Continue to alternate this.
  • Rest. Keep your chest relatively elevated - do not lay down flat or lower than your heart.
  • Keep pressure off your chest.
  • If you develop any more symptoms or the pain does not go away in 24 hours, go to the hospital.
  • And the golden rule: when in doubt, get it checked out.

I’m not joking around here, friend. Your body is important and you gotta be kind to it! If that means you need medical care, so be it. As long as you’re safe.

I really advise that you throw out every single ace bandage you have, no matter what. The temptation is too great, and it is never, ever, ever safe to bind with ace bandages.

Let us know if you’re okay, anon. I’m sending good thoughts and hopes for good health in your direction. <3

Here’s some excuses to give your parents if you need to see a doctor and you’re closeted! It’s okay to lie to them if you need to go see a doctor. You’re doing what’s best for your health and that’s really important!

For the future, when you’re healed (don’t ever bind while you’re injured!!) you could try one of the following methods to bind without ace bandages.

How do I buy a binder if I’m not out?

How do I ask my parents for a binder?

I can’t get a binder. How can I make my own?

  • Ren made some sweet info on binding with sports bras (x, x) and we also have a post about binding with camisoles. If you’re binding with a sports bra, you want this type.
  • Please do not try to make a DIY binder. Chances are, it will not be safe and you could hurt yourself.
  • Binding without a binder

Here’s another redraw! The one on the left was the first art I ever posted online, uploaded to my dA account on May 25th 2014. Back then, I didn’t have any consistent “style,” and I didn’t even have an actual drawing program, just a broken edition of GIMP. But I really wanted to draw Valkyrie from Skulduggery Pleasant, so I spent hours (mostly on the fire) until I thought it looked good enough. It’s interesting to see now how much my style has changed.

(I still don’t really understand clothing wrinkles, though)

one of my favorite Reddit posts I’ve ever seen is this one carnivorous plant grower who’s 4 year old son drew a picture of himself with his dad’s (OP’s) sundew for school as part of a story project. he even wrote out in his preschooler handwriting “I’m holding a capensis” (the Latin name of the plant). idk man I’m just saying I’m really super for kids learning to understand and love plants to such a level that they feel like the plants around their house that they live with are just as notable in their lives as the dogs and cats they live with, to the point that they include them in family drawings and depict them in pictures with themselves

xxhappysadnessxx  asked:

Hey, I wanted to say that your art is really cool and I want to ask if you have some tips and/or tricks to draw sans and papyrus, because I really struggle to draw them, and you draw them so good so I thought I might ask you! (And sorry if my english is bad, I'm not english native)

(don’t worry friend, I think you’re English is really good, wouldn’t have even known it wasn’t your native language if you hadn’t pointed it out :D)

I’ve never really helped anyone with this kind of thing, but I’ll try to help if I can! Forgive me if this doesn’t turn out to be what you’re looking for!

- First things first, know what you’re drawing! I know it probably seems a little silly to say this but, try looking at pictures of skeletons. Getting a good understanding of the human bone structure, how parts move and work, what sets where and why - it may not seem important but it really is in all honesty! Like for instance the bones in your arms, the radius, and ulna. We know that generally, they look like this: 

But when you twist your arm around, it looks like this. 

This is just one of the many things that could be essential to drawing the Skelebaes. It may seem unimportant because they are monsters, and if you’d like you can always just draw them the way you’d like without structure - but I’d still recommend just having some knowledge on it. 

- Don’t shy away from help. I’m not talking the whole constructive-criticism thing (though that does help a lot) I’m talking about more self-study. Watch streams, or speed-paints, or read tutorials on how people draw their characters - maybe just look at one of you’re favored artist’s pictures! By taking note of the things that you like about other’s pictures and putting elements of that into you’re own work - you work towards a more comfortable style of drawing and you’re own unique art style. Just the way people impact people, other people’s art is going to impact your own - so don’t shy away from that. And by this I don’t mean copy their work and post it without permission, just try feeling out how you want to draw your versions of Sans and Papyrus by using others as a little inspiration. 

- Don’t be afraid to stretch the boundaries when it comes to drawing the boys. Especially with Papyrus. He’s particularly expressive in game, so don’t be afraid to make things about him more… Just more. Make his eyes bulge, give him sparkles, make his jaw bone drop! It’s important to convey the feeling and personality of the character you’re drawing - so use things like raised or hunched shoulders, wide eyes, thinned ‘lips’ and so on to make them show what they are feeling.

- And the last thing I have to say is practice. I know everyone and their dog says that, but its true. Seriously if you look at the sans stuff I was drawing… let’s see when did I first draw him. 

(oh my god I forgot how long I’ve been a closet nerd about Undertale)

But seriously, if you look how I drew him then, versus now you’ll see the jump. That’s thanks to a lot of practice!

(September 15th, 2016)

(October 25th, 2017)

Can’t really stress it enough - practice the hell out of your drawing! It may take some time, but eventually, you’ll get to a comfortable and consistent style. And boy howdy does it feel good to get there.  

I don’t know if this is enough, I don’t want to overstretch my bounds with this and tell you how to do your art - because speaking from experience sometimes you just have to feel your way through drawing until you get where you want to be. The most important thing to me is that you have fun, so draw what you want to draw the way you want to draw it! I’ve given you the basics and essentials of how I draw these guys, and I hope it aids you well! Sorry if it wasn’t enough, if you want me to tell or teach your specifics things just pop an ask in my inbox and I’ll answer you as soon as I can!

Hello I'm a neuroscience student and I saw your post about ripley commenting that his reflection was his picture. It's actually really rare for birds to even understand their reflections is in fact them. Only one bird (magpie) has ever done it. Ripley could be the first self aware parrot! If you want to test this you could put a mark that would show up on his face or wing and show him the mirror. If he touches the mark he knows that it's him in the reflection and that counts as being self aware

Hi! Animal cognition is a major interest of mine as well, and arguably a big reason I have parrots in the first place. While I don’t consider the mirror test is the be all/end all of self awareness, I think it is a fascinating demonstration of how some animals express an awareness of their own bodies. It’s also interesting that in many birds, a reflection in water (or even just a mirror placed horizontally) elicits a very different response from a reflection in an upright shiny surface such as a car.

Your question made me realize that I’d never tried the mirror test on Ripley before, so I decided to give it a go. Here’s a short video on his Twitter, during which (spoilers) he makes no attempt to remove the sticker I’ve placed on him. His general mirror behavior was also not markedly different, although he did go straight into tapping the mirror without being prompted to touch it, which he doesn’t usually do. Beak tapping is both a common response to mirrors in greys, as well as what Ripley is often instructed to do when we ask him to “touch” objects, so he taps his beak like that on a LOT of stuff.

As for what conclusions to draw, I think it’s entirely possible that when Ripley refers to the mirror on his toy telephone as “my picture,” he’s simply saying “this is a picture on my phone,” because “picture” Is what we call television and phone screens, so perhaps he sees no difference between the mirror “picture” on his toy phone and the screen “picture” on my real phone, and he’s just saying “this is a part of the phone.”

It’s also possible he noticed the sticker on his face and just didn’t care to remove it. He did allow me to apply the sticker and then remove it without any apparent opinions on the matter. This may be why scientists studying the mirror test often apply a mark to animals only when those animals are under anesthesia, and can’t have known that something was put on them.

Alex the parrot demonstrated some very unique mirror behavior that could have been said to have been self-recognition, but a formal mirror test was never conducted because he had had so much prior exposure to mirrors. Likewise, I don’t think that Ripley’s mirror behavior could really be said to demonstrate a scientific conclusion either way, since for the past eight years he’s had plenty of exposure to mirrors and we’ve been priming him with statements like “look at that bird, it’s you!”

Thanks, now I'm picturing Laura having cravings and dragging Carmilla out of bed to make her take a very pregnant Laura get pancakes from Denny's at 3 am. Carmilla doesn't complain because she understands Laura can't control the cravings but she's gonna be dead tired because she has changed her schedule around from a nocturnal one. The whole time she'll kinda be wobbling side-to-side with her eyes open just enough to see Laura but nothing else as she nurses a mug of coffee.

Hahaha perfect! And Laura orders something really weird like a stack of pancakes with nacho cheese and a scoop of chocolate ice cream because her cravings are weird like that

This might have been answered before, but what can I do if my friends think I'm transphobic for not wanting to see male genitalia? They always tell me to look at pictures of pre-op trans women until I "recognise" them as real women. Does this actually work? All it does is feel really awkward.

This ask makes me feel really sad. Anon, you don’t have to look at pictures of male genitalia, and it’s horrible of your friends to encourage you to do so. That’s literally a part of conversion therapy and it won’t actually do anything to change your sexuality; it’ll just make you feel worse.

Your friends need to understand that your sexuality is not transphobic. It isn’t about not seeing trans women as women; it’s about not being attracted to them in the sense that they aren’t female. Gender =/= sex. A trans woman is male, because if she were female, she wouldn’t be trans. If you are only attracted to females, then no amount of trying to change yourself will ever make you attracted to male genitalia. And you don’t have to change. Your homosexuality is not a crime.

A Little Christmas Party [SRFM and Zero fluff]

Starting note! I’ve tried writing fan fiction before but never post it. This particular attempt at writing is a little long winded, I stop myself part way through AND I make some big “no no”s among the proper rules of writing. [like a change in tense and perspective, etc. It’s a mess!] In short, don’t expect too much!
But either way, I did this as a Christmas gift for @the-clairvoyant-rick!

It seems to be Lamars drawing, he liked a fan art of concrete, and it looks exactly like his style. And I own a digital copy of the book, and it IS text first before the drawing. So it's very likely that Rebecca wrote the description then Lamar drew the picture. That's why I'm not stressing over it. It honestly didn't bother me in the first place. I'm black btw.

Yep, it seems like Lamar’s style. Thank you for letting me know it was text first! Then yeah, this feels much better. I appreciate so many people messaging me about Concrete and not being total asses about it. I do understand that people are upset over her, but in the end, it really does seem to be a bad mistake that hopefully the Crewniverse will address sometime from now until SDCC.

anonymous asked:

Hi PM! So I'm starting out in digital art and I was wondering, do you think in term of learning, it's good to trace your reference picture or does it just makes you 'lazy'? I don't know if I make sense but I feel like tracing is the easy way and won't help, and at the same time feel like it can really help with understanding proportions and whatnot

(cont) PS: for the tracing question, I’ve seen a lot of artist getting yelled at for even just expressing their opinion on the subject so if it’s not something you feel comfortable talking about I 100% understand it            

Hi anon ^^

Ok, good question! A bit more complicated than it seems.

at the same time feel like it can really help with understanding proportions and whatnot

Not really. Ok I’m gonna try to explain you in my amazing Frenglish why it’s not a good method, I hope it’s gonna be clear. :)

From what you are saying, tracing could be useful to understand proportions. If we start on that principle, it would mean that all the photos you are gonna trace have models with proper anatomical proportions. I mean, how could it be otherwise? It’s a picture! It’s reality! Well….Nope! It’s not exactly reality. It’s the reality of the camera. The camera itself and even the way the pic was taken can deform the human body and the proportions on the photo you choose to trace can be completely fucked up. Two examples: selfies and sport pictures.

- Selfies: When you take a selfie in front of a mirror, the hand holding the phone is closer to the lens of the camera. That’s why it looks so big. If you render the same proportions on a pic by just tracing without any knowledge of anatomy or proportions, it’s gonna look ridiculous and just give you a “small body - big hand” effect. Someone with a better understanding of anatomy would either draw the hand smaller to correct the deformation of the camera either foreshorten the arm to really enhance the play on perspective and give a cool effect like for instance in this artwork.

- Sport pics: When you take a pic of, let’s say, a baseball player. The body is so much in tension, in action, in MOTION that when you look at the pic, the body seems completely deformed. Does the body look this way in reality? No, it’s the reality of the camera lens. Don’t get me wrong, these pics are cool but if you trace them, for instance, to work on your baseball AU, the characters are gonna look ridiculous. Not stylized. Not cool. Ridiculous. Short legs, arms curved like a bow. They are not reality, they are just an impression of reality.

That’s why tracing will lead you nowhere in terms of learning. If you don’t know anything about anatomy, drawing techniques, proportions, you won’t be able to identify anatomy mistake (or perspective mistake, or whatever mistake). Tracing is mindless,you think you know what you are tracing but in fact, you aren’t.

It’s far better if you learn from the start, whether you are into CG art or not, to abstract your subject. Try to think it as bigger elements, and then study the proportions and composition of the elements. Basic elements used to draw a body, a car, a chair, whatever, include standard shapes such as boxes, cones, cylinders and spheres. Once you grasp the subject using such primitives, it isn’t that hard anymore to draw whatever you want and then add detail. A good part of learning to draw is learning to observe so you can translate what you see into two dimensional line or forms. (I did a post about deconstructing the body into shapes HERE). Tracing does absolutely nothing to help with that. Don’t get me wrong, when I was about 10-11 and that I started to learn to draw, I started to trace (with tracing paper, because…there was no CG art at the time xD) but it achieved nothing. I thought it did but I when I look at the drawings I did at the time, they are all deformed and the faces are wonky (the funniest thing is when you look at the original pics, you don’t see these deformations). In other words, Linda Evangelista, I’m sorry for all the wonky traced drawings I did of your face, where your jaw was super big and your eyes not on the same level. xD

When an artist use a reference picture they don’t just copy it exactly. They correct the deformation of the camera lens to render proper body proportion. Reference pictures are a GREAT help, I use them all the time and I will never shut up about how useful they are because it’s stupid to try to recreate a whole face, car, landscape, guitar, etc.. from memory but if you know about technique, you will correct the mistakes by yourself. The pic will just give you basic depth, proportion and curve perception to build your final work.

Also, tracing won’t train your hand to be better at doing a clean line work either for instance.It’s better to draw again and again and again to train your hand. Your line work will be wonky at first, then cleaner and cleaner.

However, there’s nothing wrong with tracing your own stuff if you are working on a complex picture. Some artists sketch all their characters on a different piece of paper and use a light table to put them all in the same pic (a lot of mangaka do this). They also use this method to do a clean line work (they sketch the character, use a light table and trace their sketch with ink). As you were asking about CG art, it’s different, of course. But there’s nothing wrong with doing all your characters on different layers, even different documents and then grouping them all in one pics. Whatever works. I do it when it’s a complex pic like  this one.

I’ve seen a lot of artist getting yelled at for even just expressing their opinion on the subject so if it’s not something you feel comfortable talking about I 100% understand it   

As if I cared.

If it were a good method, I would tell you, it’s a good method. I will never shut up about the virtues of referencing in spite of what a part of Tumblr thinks, so, you know, as I said, I don’t care.

Voilà! I hope it helped :) Good luck on learning about CG art. You’ll get there like I got there. Slowly but surely.
