i'm so done making this look pretty

Here it is

I’m a little bit proud of this

I know I could’ve done better… But I’m running on a time limit. I hope it looks okay. You can see where I screwed up the shading… and blending… and colors in general… But today I tried a new way of making the outline. I’m pretty happy with the results.

@princeofmints has been one of my favorite artists for a while. Similar to Moho, Zachary is great with anatomy. He can made amazing works of art with so many layers that it makes my vision blurry. Or I just need glasses. Anyways, Zachary is always fun to check up on. I love seeing new art and this artist’s happiness generally makes me happy. I can only wish him the best, and hope that he doesn’t let anything bring him down. His OCs are awesome looking, and from what I’ve read about their personalities they’re really creative and cool. I wish him the best in life, because in my opinion, he deserves it. Zachary, from what I’ve seen, really is a sweetheart. I think that others who admire him like I do will agree. I hope one day I’ll be able to draw bodies similar to how he does. I don’t want to be just like him art wise. I want to be able to envision what I want and draw it out like he does. Whenever I watch a speedpaint, I’m always baffled at how he creates his lineart. He can always get better. Everyone can. Still, you can tell that he puts a lot of time and effort into what he does. You can see the results of hard work and practice. Out of all the things I admire about Zachary, that’s probably the biggest one. Not only for him, but for all artists who do their best.

He’s a truly amazing artist, and this is my gift to him.


Here’s an attempt to demonstrate how i color skin.  it’s quite basic, but hopefully it will help anon, and anyone else who’s curious!  for anyone who doesn’t know i use manga studio ex 5.  please click on each image for the caption!

some basic tips:

1. don’t shade with grey or black.  it looks awful.  i go for purple/blue-ish hues for shadows.

2, vary your hues.  if you stay in the same part of the color wheel things look very flat and lifeless.  there are a million tutorials out there for this that show/explain it better than i ever could.  i don’t have any examples to link but they’re easy to find.

that’s sort of it, i hope this was helpful.  i’m crap at explaining things.  a new computer is on my list of things to get when i move, so hopefully i’ll be able to record speed paints and stream - seeing things live is better imo.

Hello! I have an idea for the ficlet (feel better btw!). Okay: HS AU with popular!Dean and popular!Cas, they're those two annoying guys who make funny (but also obnoxious) comments in every single class, and make stupid, flirtatious remarks to each other like "Cas looks pretty hot today guys" or "I'm totally dating Dean, everyone" etc. Only thing is, they're secretly in love, but neither will admit it. I've had this idea for a while and I'd LOVE for a talented author to execute it.

Aaaahhh it’s been too long since I’ve done a High School AU and I’ve missed it. Thanks for this one and thanks so much for asking me to fufill the prompt! I hope I do it justice :)


“Please take your seats quickly. I want to discuss your quiz scores so we can go over any questions you may have before the final test.” Ms. Mills said with a stack of papers clutched against her chest.

Dean stretched his arms above his head as he flopped into his usual seat on the third row, next to the wall so he could lean up against it in times of extreme laziness. He sprawled out accordingly, dropping his backpack to the floor and draping his letterman jacket over his seat until the air conditioning kicked in during the middle of class like it usually did.

“Hey, hot stuff.” Dean said with a nod as Castiel sat down in the seat next to him.

“Good morning, Dean.” Castiel said, barely looking up as he aligned his binder and world history book neatly on the small desk in front of him.

“How was that student council thingy yesterday?” Dean asked, popping a piece of gum into his mouth.

“Absolutely dreary without your shining personality to brighten all of our days,” Castiel murmured, completely straight-faced.

Dean winked as Ms. Mills began talking again.

“Some of you need to look at your notes from the beginning of the year again,” she said as she began passing back the quizzes. “And some of you need to remember that - if you want full credit on the final test - the answer to ‘What are the seven wonders of the ancient world’ is not ‘Castiel Novak’s Ass’ written seven times.”

She frowned when she got to Dean’s desk, dropping the paper on his desk as the rest of the class laughed.

Dean clicked his tongue and made a finger gun at Castiel with another wink.

“Really, Dean? Don’t be childish.” Castiel said, just loud enough for everyone to hear. “We all know that’s not true. I haven’t done any squats in at least a month.”

So you know when you finish a really long crochet project and you’re like super duper DONE with it and you’re like “man I’m not doing that again?”

But then a couple weeks later you’re looking at the pattern and you think to yourself “eh, it wasn’t that bad” and you pick up your hook and start again…

I really want to cut my hair short cause I'm like… figuring stuff out gender-wise but everyone is advising against it, saying that it won't look good with my face shape or that my hair is so pretty and it'll ruin it, or that I won't like it after it's done and it's really stressing me out and making me second guess myself even though I've wanted to cut it for months. Have you ever gone through anything similar? Do you have any advice? Thanks 😌🌟

I had extremely long hair that everyone loved and when I said I was going to cut it all off everyone told me not to cut it. Cutting it was one of the best discussions I ever made tbh. In my opinion anyone can look good with short hair. Also the cool thing about hair is it grows back, so idk why so many people tell other people not to cut their hair. I say do it and if you don’t like it grow it out.

Hey! I'd just like to say that I love your art work!! Anyway onto my question... Whenever I do art, and I look at it when it's done for the first time, I'm proud of it but then, the next time I see it I don't feel like it's good enough and I end up not posting it. What should I do?

Thank you so much!!! That’s a pretty good question, art is tricky that way.  I still experience this a lot of the time too!  I have a folder full of old drawings on my computer that I felt proud of when I first completed it, but the next day felt like I wasted my time making it.  I learned though that the drawings that I felt like weren’t good enough was worth making!  Try thinking of these drawings as a journal of progress.  Keep them! There’s sketches I made years ago that I’ve stumbled upon and it inspired new ideas. 

As for to post them or not, I say go for it!  Even if you don’t feel like it’s good enough, let others see.  It’s good to get feedback and a lot of people like seeing how artists started and progressed over the years.  I loved seeing these progress memes on deviantart from my favorite artists when I first started posting on there.  A lot of artists save up a bunch of drawings that they felt weren’t good but post all of them as one post as ‘sketch dumps.’  I love those.

Hope that I answered your question.  Dunno if you’d be interested, but here’s some sketches I came up with before I started this blog.  

Thanks again for the support!

I can’t believe I almost didn’t watch Beauty and the Beast bc of Tumblr. Because I’ve seen it today and there isn’t a single thing about it I didn’t love (except maybe for the cheesy pop version of Beauty and the Beast in the credits)

I’ve never seen so much (absolutely unjustified) pettiness surrounding a movie that hasn’t even come out yet??
Like ”The dress looks shit” “LeFou is no proper gay representation” “Luke Evans is not beefy enough to be Gaston” “lmao singing more like autotune” “Why didn’t they cast someone who can sing as Belle” I could go on

If I see this “look at how stupid the dress looks” post ONE MORE TIME I’m going to scream into my pillow for a very long time. Like, if you know a thing or two about sewing you can see it certainly isn’t cheap and wasn’t made by someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing.

Yeah it’s not the infamous ball gown, but Emma Watson explicitly said that she wanted to be able to move freely in this dress and you can’t really do that in a ball gown and corset, can you.
Also, if you actually bother to not judge the dress by one still you’ll see that it was probably sewn to look absolutely stunning when it’s moving. Because it does. 
“But even cosplayers could have done it better” And I bet that the Disney costume designers could have made an equally pretty dress, but try to put one of these cosplayers on a horse. Or make them dance for what is probably hours until the producers have enough takes they’re satisfied with.

Tl;dr: Stop calling the dress ugly and cheap, because it is not.

  • Turkey: and finally they're done! They actually look pretty decent, if I say so myself! And now, to taste them! *takes a bite* ... it's so sugary... and hard... what the fuck am I eating????
  • Turkey: heya guys, so due to my stupid Asian-ass, I don't want to waste even the most shit-tasting/looking food, so I'm leaving it in the meeting room for some poor soul to try and not die from it- hey, America's eating it...

Making slow but steady progress on a really big thing…

This one’s basically a redraw but I like how it turned out. (This scene is pretty much the one that first got me emotionally invested in MHA…….)

anonymous asked:

"I attacked you with a knife Because I thought you were his ex boyfriend, the man who abused him///alsoyoukindofbrokeintomyhouse//" The brilliant thing about this being- it would explain bums hysterical response to suengbae, If seungbae looked like an abusive ex, it makes sense bum Would be panicked with him. So it sows seeds of doubt into even seungbaes mind, and diverts the leg wounds linking sangwoo to the murder... To somebody else. I'm Raving man I hope sangwoo goes down this route.

How far down that road Sangwoo goes will be interesting to see. Either way, I’m pretty sure Seungbae knows he’s screwed. The only thing he actually KNOWS that Sangwoo has done is beat Bum, because he’s got it on the car recording. He doesn’t know he’s a murderer. He never has. Even with Sangwoo attacking him with a knife he still has NO evidence that he’s a serial killer. That just goes to show how terrible Suengbae is at his job. I mean, if he hadn’t broken into his house, Sangwoo wouldn’t have the perfect excuse for attacking him. Seungbae practically GAVE him a get-out-of-jail-free card. He’s shown up with a beat-up guy, saying, ‘Here’s this guy. I broke into his house and he attacked me.’ Well yes. The police aren’t going to think anything of that. Especially since Seungbae beat him up and bloody tased him! That is not going to be explained away easily. 

So, what else has Seungbae got? Nothing. Seriously. HE HAS NO EVIDENCE. The most he can accuse Sangwoo of is beating up Bum, and (I’m not sure how Korean law works but) I’m pretty sure he can’t arrest him for that without Bum pressing charges. 

See, this is why I have a problem with Seungbae. He’s all about pride. He doesn’t care about people. Everyone around him hates him and there’s a reason for that. He doesn’t listen, he doesn’t do his job. He takes the patrol car to stalk a person (instead of doing his job) when all he has is a hunch. He knew Bum was being hurt, but did nothing. And now he’s brought his friend into the mess, and maybe cost them both their jobs. All because of his obsession. He has NO reason to believe that Sangwoo is a serial killer. He just WANTS to. So Sangwoo was rude to him. He looked at him funny. Lots of people probably look and speak to him the same way (he’s not exactly a likeable guy), they’re not all going to be serial killers. Just because Sangwoo IS a serial killer, it does not excuse Seungbae. He doesn’t know that. Being right does not make his actions right. WE know Sangwoo is a serial killer. Seungbae has nothing to go on but a dislike for Sangwoo. Seungbae doesn’t have a hunch, he has a personal vendetta. He is truly appalling at his job. I don’t think we’ve ever actually SEEN him DO his job. There’s a reason he was demoted, and it’s not because the world is out to get him. Personally, I’d hoped he would end up in Sangwoo’s basement. It would have been the most interesting thing he’d ever done.

(Sorry for the long, rambly reply. I have many thoughts about Yang Seungbae. To summarise them: every time he’s on ‘screen’ this is my gut reaction:

Black and Blue, Shance Fluff Week Day 1

YouTube AU where Shiro puts on eyeliner on Lance and Lance paints Shiro’s nails :D

“Hell my lovelies!“ Lance greeted the camera in front of him. He was seating on his bed, blue pillows and covers scattered, pale grey walls as his background. The people watching him online had a peek of his life through the framed photos adorning the walls, one of which was him smiling from ear to ear, wearing a navy blue suit, with a handsome man’s arm around his shoulders.  

“It’s ya boy, Lance!” He waved at the camera. “Here with me today is a special guest. He is my lovely boyfriend, fire to my loins, the bane of my being, the one and only lover- for now,“ he winked at the camera.


“Takashi Shirogane!“
