How do you get inspiration to draw? Because I'll see my drawings and how it looks and I'll loose inspiration and have effort to come back. Also I realllly love the way you colour and draw:))

HMM for me I usually only feel like drawing if I have a clear idea in mind (which is bad and also why I always suffer during con season), and most of the time I DON”T actually have any solid ideas to draw? when I don’t, I just doodle faces and stuff or like fashion outfits bc those are things I draw a lot but I love drawing them anyway. LOOKING AT FASHION STUFF always inspires me though, or photographs of people/places, I like looking at that sort of thing. Also it helps a lot i think, to have a clear picture of the end product, because it’s a lot more motivating for me when I know what I’m heading towards! I’ve recently tried doing more preliminary sketches + thumbnails and stuff before drawing. 

Try to let your older art motivate you maybe? If you don’t like what you see, identify what you don’t like about it and try to do it better in the next piece. Inspiration comes and goes, so don’t let it control your art! Draw even when you don’t feel inspired bc it will help boost up your art for when you actually have neat ideas to execute!

Hey !

Recently I reached 500 followers, so time to celebrate this and since it’s summer or not really summer since the weather is absolutely terrible, but hooray for the extra time I have on hands! I’d like to thank everyone on my dash for making my experience great over here, I love all of you !


It’s very likely that I forgot some people due to url changes or actually accidently forgetting, so if we’re mutuals and you’re not on the list I’m sorry in advance

New habitat for the smol dog! I still have a lot to add but I’ll do it over the next few days as I get the time. The substrate is cypress mulch and reptibark, with it being like 85% cypress and 15% reptibark. Irian jaya BTS need higher humidity than a northern so the substrate must be chosen accordingly.

I’m using a UTH as my primary heat source and it’s located around where the faux tree stump is which acts as a warm humid hide. I didn’t want to heat bare glass, so there is a tile floor underneath the substrate on the portion that is heated by the UTH (it can be seen in the last photo). I have a UVB bulb currently over the warm end of the tank which I will be mounting inside once I get to Home Depot to buy the supplies. The cool side has a sizable bowl for soaking and a half of a flower pot for a cool moist hide. I should note that the faux tree stumps are currently on clearance at petsmart (they’re no longer listed online) and are like 5 bucks so if anyone needs one they’re cheap!

The tank is a 30gal Breeder I had laying around that had never been used (aka brand new). It has the same dimensions as a 40gal breeder but is only 12in high instead of 16. So it’s 36 x 18 x 12. Eventually I’m going to buy him a nice viv like a vision or something similar but this will be fine for the time being. Longdog seems to really enjoy it so far!

Next up in hp fandom hits, probably: voldemort actually had the right idea and he wasn’t actually bigoted he just cared a lot for wix - I mean, muggles had bombs!!! What if they decided to bomb wizards??? Best to kill literally anyone who could tell muggles about the wizarding world and also to remind them they’re inferior and stole magic so that they have to spend time disputing and disproving that so they can’t go telling muggles about magic. Also harry was wrong for killing the strategic saviour of the wizarding world.

“We are each other’s harvest ; we are each other’s business ; we are each other’s magnitude and bond.”

Do you ever think about the future of animation and get really excited?? Like animation has already come so far and changed so much in such a short amount of time, and I can’t even begin to imagine what animated movies are going to look like in another 10 or 20 years, but I’m already pumped about all of these movies that haven’t even been thought of yet!

Hannibal Episode 308: “The Great Red Dragon”

NEW YORK TIMES:

“Mr. Reitzell’s cacophonous musical creation, layered with dozens upon dozens of unique percussive sounds, coupled with Richard Armitage’s physically powerful depiction of Francis Dolarhyde, result in an arresting pre-credits scene that illustrates the making of a monster in way that words could never suffice.” (x)

DECIDER.COM:

“…please don’t think for a second that there’s nothing more to Hannibal than style, spectacle, and blood spatter. It always has been, and remains, a supremely well-acted show […] More impressive still is Richard Armitage’s instant-classic work as Francis Dolarhyde — aka the Tooth Fairy, aka the Great Red Dragon — whom he doesn’t so much play as inhabit.” (x)

FORBES:

“The role of The Red Dragon‘s primary antagonist, “The Tooth Fairy,” or Francis Dolarhyde, was previously played by masterclass actors. […] But if Armitage’s chilling but charismatic first appearance is any indication, then like the rest of Fuller’s brilliant series, Armitage plans to take The Tooth Fairy’s primary attributes from the book and spin them in a way that is unique to the series.” (x)

IO9:

“what an entrance Francis Dolarhyde (Richard Armitage) makes! […] It’s only 10 minutes in, and he hasn’t spoken a word yet, but it’s hard not to be already loving this character and performance […] EVERYONE ELSE IS BORING!” (x)

MOVIE PILOT:

“Witnessing [Armitage’s] transformation was nothing short of stunning and fans loved it. […] there is no doubt Fuller got his money’s worth when he signed on Richard Armitage.” (x)

SCREEN CRUSH:

“Armitage does not have a single line of dialogue in the entire episode, making our introduction to Francis Dolarhyde totally visceral. It’s a wholly physical and impressive performance, and a striking way to communicate his psychology to the audience.” (x)

HYPABLE:

“The opening five minutes of Hannibal‘s “The Great Red Dragon” featuring Richard Armitage’s introduction set the tone for the remaining stretch of the series. It was dark, twisted, and torturous, a new beginning, the becoming of the Dragon, […] This recap cannot do justice to the performance that Richard Armitage gave to the role of Francis Dolarhyde.” (x)

INQUISTR.COM:

“Richard Armitage transformed into “The Great Red Dragon” in Saturday night’s episode of Hannibal, and it was visually stunning. What viewers saw on their television sets last night is unlike anything we have seen before and showed why Armitage is considered one of Britain’s jewels. The 43-year-old certainly lived up to the expectations and then some. […] What is even more outstanding about Richard Armitage’s transformation into “The Great Red Dragon” is that he did not utter one single word, and we could already feel the power of Dolarhyde’s complex persona.” (x)

FLICKERING MYTH:

“Richard Armitage made a memorable introduction in the opening as he prepared for his first set of kills. […] Armitage is sure to be a standout of the series once all is said and done.” (x)

411MANIA:

“[…] to say [Richard Armitage] blew me away in the role is an understatement. He doesn’t even do much in this episode really. […] Even with all these seemingly unimportant things happening, it’s fascinating to watch. […] Armitage is great so far, a strong addition to the cast.” (x)

TV FANATIC:

“We meet Dolarhyde in the first five minutes of the episode, and it was a fantastic five minutes. […] It was mesmerizing and disturbing all at once, and Armitage was positively captivating without saying a word […] One of the first scenes we saw was Dolarhyde working out in his attic. […] Dolarhyde is an attractive, physically appealing man. He is strong, ripped, and I swear they made him flex his right pectoralis major on purpose in one scene.” (x)

DIGITAL SPY:

“Francis Dolarhyde, played with menace and fragility by Richard Armitage […] Richard Armitage working out in tiny shorts. I have nothing to add to that, really.” (x)

VULTURE:

“In less than five minutes, veteran horror director Neil Marshall has established the character, tone, and motifs that will make up the next (and final) six episodes of Hannibal. It’s a spectacular bit of filmmaking, a dialogue-free introduction to a character before whom we will inevitably tremble.” (x)

SLANT MAGAZINE:

“In just five minutes, Hannibal creator Bryan Fuller and his many collaborators, including this episode’s director, Neil Marshall, capture an element of Thomas Harris’s novel Red Dragon that has mostly eluded its two prior film adaptations: Francis’s pitifulness and operatic self-loathing.” (x)
