I just got back from watching Loving Vincent and I am stunned. 

100 artists worked to make this the first ever fully hand painted film, and the result was incredible! It was stop motion oil painting for 2 hours. I feel like my brain was just massaged.

If you’re able to, I highly suggest it especially to artists!

I finally did it!!!

Okay so ever since I drew the first “cover” for my fic “I’m Levi’s” (first pic) more than a year ago, I had made it my goal to expand the art by adding Levi to it once I would finally reach the turning point in my fic. Yes, there is a reason why I made Eren like this in the art and I deemed it important to make a “development” of the first version. (”Cover” here means that this is how I would like the front and back cover to be if my fic were to be in book form - which it will never be tho lol) 

So the turning point was achieved in the story for a while now, but I didn’t work on the continuation (second pic) up until today because I had feared the most that the pic wouldn’t turn out the way I was imagining it… But it did!! ^~^ I am no artist, but what I can say is that this luckily turned out as perfect as it could be with my poor skills (imo).

Third pic is a “clean” version of the art, meaning there is no title.

I am so happy with the result and I had even experienced some overwhelming feelings while going through my fic for this c‘:

DO NOT REPOST

Bonus, a version with quotes taken from my fic:

anonymous asked:

Are you a full time artist?

Do you mean am I working professionally as an artist? No.

If you mean; Do I spend most of my time drawing? Then that’s also a no, I spend most of my time screaming at my PC because I don’t know what to draw.

Hey, dogs are good.

Oh look, I drew a little cracky comic in my sketchbook! Inspired of course by FBI’s finest, the super empath Will Graham who can sense a criminal’s motivations and most intimate feelings just by looking at their crime scenes.

Unless, of course, that criminal wants to get into his pants

Keith slumps, and his eyelids flutter as he falls into a cloudy, warm limbo between asleep and awake. Just then, he feels arms wrap around his waist from behind. “Hey there, sleepyhead.” Then there’s a kiss to his temple and Keith smiles, making a contented hum in the back of his throat. He leans back into the gentle embrace, nuzzling soft brown skin, scent of cinnamon peaceful and familiar as it overtakes Keith’s senses.

“Hi.”

Four different instances of Klance cuddles, because I can. 

Notes: Hello! So, I felt like writing some tooth-rotting fluff. And this happened? Title is from Loyalty by Kendrick Lamar, because I’m trying to keep up a theme here lol. 

Enjoy reading!

Okay, but seriously on the topic of straight people being so overly concerned about their children being exposed to homosexuality…

As some of you know, I am a makeup artist in a holistic beauty boutique in a very wealthy area of eastern New York. The week before Halloween I was offering simple costume makeup designs for both adults and children. So my last client of the evening was a 15 year old girl who came in to get her makeup done for the Halloween dance at her school. I was enjoying a conversation with both the girl and her mother when suddenly the topic of transgender came up. I got a little nervous because I have a hard time keeping my mouth shut when I hear people speaking negatively about these sorts of topics and as I mentioned, my store is in a very upscale, white, conservative area…

Anyway, the girl starts telling us that her friend prefers to be a boy now. She says it very simply and comfortably and it made me happy to see her talk about it as if it was really no big deal.

Her mother says

“How does she even know what transgender is though? She’s a little young to be making a decision like that. I really think the media is taking things too far with all this gay stuff. I’m not against it or anything, but didn’t you just tell me two boys in your class are dating too?”

The girl said that yes, two boys she knew were dating and another boy she knew was gay also. (And she also corrected the pronouns her mother used for her friend)

“I don’t mind that she knows that homosexuality is,” the mother said. “But I don’t think it should be taught at such a young age. Did you know it’s on Disney channel now?”

It took me a moment to respond, I just kept painting the girl’s face until I could figure out what I wanted to say.

“Well,” I said. “We tend to teach heterosexuality literally from the time a child is born. Most children’s books and movies are even centered around a romance of some kind like a Prince and a Princess for example. There’s rarely a children’s movie that comes out where the main male and female character don’t end up marrying each other in the end. If we don’t have a problem flooding our children’s minds with heterosexuality from the time they are able to sit up and watch a movie on their own, what is so wrong with showing them two boys or two girls being in love? We aren’t showing them sex. We aren’t showing them anything inappropriate. Since when is love inappropriate? If we show them love in all it’s forms (be it gay or straight) from an early age, they will see that it’s all perfectly normal and natural and maybe we can finally put homophobic the past…”

The woman considered this for a second and then said “I just feel like they see it and then they start to think that they might be too.”

“And maybe they are. But isn’t it better for them to know that it’s okay? They aren’t hurting anyone.”

Then the girl said. “No ones going around just thinking they are gay because they know what gay is, mom. I know what a chicken is, that doesn’t mean I’m going to wake up tomorrow and start clucking.”


I loved this kid. I hope she does well in all of her endeavors
