M∙A∙C Selena, the multi-product collection inspired by Latin icon, Selena Quintanilla, debuts in the latter part of 2016.

“Selena’s talent and beauty, inside and out have, have left a colourful, meaningful impact in the world, that has continued to grow over the last two decades. We have heard the passion and enthusiasm from her fans and wholeheartedly agree that her legacy embodies M·A·C’s philosophy. We are so excited to announce a Selena inspired M·A·C collection debuting in the latter part of 2016.” — James Gager, MAC Senior Vice President/Group Creative Director

“I am so excited that M·A·C Cosmetics will be releasing a collection in honor of my sister Selena. Helping to create this collection brings me back to all those late night conversations on our tour bus when she spoke of having her own makeup line one day. If Selena were here she would be beyond ecstatic to have this happening. History is being made.” — Suzette Quintanilla (Selena’s sister) via Temptalia

I sent you a letter today
written with your favorite pen
you’ll have to excuse the smudges
you know I write with my left hand


I folded the page in thirds and
scrawled your name across the top
I tried not to make it sappy
but once I began I could not stop


I placed it in a bottle and
pushed the cork on tight and
I walked down to the beach
in the middle of the night


I watched it float in the water
before the waves took it away
here’s hoping someone out there
will read the words I had to say

—  Leigh, day 276

Creativity?
I don’t have any
It left me the day that you did
So now I just sit here
Hoping
That maybe
Just maybe
You’ll come back to me
And I’ll write something inspiring
Again
Or at least worth reading
But I don’t see that happening
So I’ll just burn another candle
And have another tea

I guess I’ll just keep writing about what used to be

Monty Oum: A Beautiful Soul

Words cannot describe how hard myself and the community are taking this passing. Monty was an amazing inspiration and I feel like everyone will say the same thing. He was an inspiration to not just artist and animators, but the entire RT family and community. We all believed he would be okay. He’d have to be okay. And I’m still having a hard time grasping and believing it. We all have heavy hearts, but like Matt said, show your respect for Monty, and your sadness through creativity. Even if you don’t draw, write, make videos; do something. Even just writing a small paragraph is considered creative, and anything you do will be appreciated and thought driven. Monty left an amazing mark and legacy on this world and on our hearts, and it will never die. Even if he was taken away from us much too early, and he still had so much growing and creating to do, he was and still is an inspiration to all of us none the less and I will never be able to finish saying everything I want to in just a paragraph. Just remember what Monty always preached: Nothing is impossible if you put your full heart into it. So show your respect to the Rooster Teeth family and create something to show how much you care. Also don’t push RT and AH if they don’t release videos today or this week at all. We ALL need time.

Here’s my photo for my other American Akita.

His name is Hugo and he’s a year younger than Zara. But they’re inseparable. Sometimes they have arguments (usually about food, or treats, or toys) but they make up fast.

Both continuously inspire me and my art. Especially when I’m stressed out or have no creative juices left. :)

Comments: Idk I really wanted to do every prompt for this month but I didn’t have the inspiration or time to make a complete story for all of the ones left, so I decided why not pull off tiny drabbles about each of them where I just can start right in the thick of it if I want to?

apron

The warmth on her back isn’t something she expects when she turns around, shoulders slumped in defeat. He had seemed so oblivious, so sleepy in her attempts to get him to notice her lack of attire, but with his hard length digging into the small of her back, she knows now that he had only played pretend. Her breath catches in her throat when his hand runs roughly over her stomach, the burn of desire buzzing through her veins with enough force to have her pushing back against him.

“Sas—”

“Did you really think I wouldn’t notice, Sakura?” he whispers hotly, lips brushing against her ear as he trails his fingers heatedly along the apex of her thighs, and into a thatch of soft curls. He cups her heat, and she stiffens, arching against him with the softest moan.

“You wouldn’t react,” she gasps, biting onto her lip. “No matter what I did, you never seemed to realize I was only wearing—”

“I did,” he growls, pushing his arousal against her naked warmth. Hand leaving the space between her thighs, he vehemently coaxes her into bending over the smooth surface of their kitchen counter. She feels him fumbling with the opening of his pants, and shudders in anticipation, burying her face in her arms as he wetly kisses the back of her neck and murmurs gruffly, “I just wanted to see how far you’d go.”

She doesn’t have the breath to say anything more, as she feels him push inside her with insistent force, his lone hand grasping on the material of her thin apron as he bucked harshly against her ass, building up a quick, ruthless rhythm.

a game of cat and mouse

“All day…” she mumbled, burying thin fingers in his hair as she rolled her hips onto his hard, biting onto her lip. “All day you’ve been teasing me…” She gripped him tighter, rising and falling against him a little faster, trembling. “Finding me everywhere. Touching me… Kissing me… Working me up…” Sakura kissed him, raking her nails over his scalp with enough force to have him groaning. “And still,” she panted, picking up the pace of her thrusts and riding him harder, quicker. “Still, you make me do all the work…”

A wicked smirk twitched at his lips, and she felt her heart stutter, throat growing tight as he squeezed the flesh of her ass and gave a rough upward thrust, sending a sharp cry tumbling out of her lips. Her face fell in the crook of his neck when he sharply drove into her again, fingers twisting in his dark locks as he hummed against her ear and whispered huskily, “You’re right. I guess it would only be fair to help you out, then…”

I am absolutely in love with date based truffles. There are so many ways you can customize them using whatever you have around to really make delicious, sweet, grab and go energizing bites. They’re perfect for me before early morning workouts to get a quick boost, in the afternoon on my way out the door, or a few as a night time treat that tastes incredible and is good for me too! None of these truffles have any added sugar, all of them are gluten free, and the only non-vegan ingredient is whey protein powder in some of them which can very easily be swapped for a vegan protein powder or left out completely (add equal parts nuts to make up the texture difference). I hope these truffles inspire you to get creative and create your own unique flavors! I know I’m certainly going to keep experimenting! :)

Thank you Deo

As an illustrator.
As a writer.
As a person.
I say thank you to dapper-deoxys

I been, and still am, insecure about my art. About my characters, about my words, and most importantly about myself. Many of my own illustrations would be left with only a few notes at best, even on my old account. But finding your works has opened my creative flood gates once again. But unlike before, I don’t just see the characters and their world, but I also get to experience yourself. And you try to expose the artist who follow you. I have found friends in this community and helped many with your characters(as Mod Nova for pilot-motivation)

Thank you for putting your ideas out there. Thank you for the inspiration. Thank you for the motivation. Thank you for being yourself. I’m sure many other people feel the same.

i thoUGHT THE ENDING WAS ACTUALLY REALLY FUCKING GORGEOUS AND SO WELL DONE LIKE IT IMPLIED A LOT AND LEFT A LOT UP TO THE IMAGINATION BUT IN THE END HASNT THAT ALWAYS KINDA BEEN A THING WITH HOMESTUCK???? INSPIRING ITS READERS TO BE CREATIVE AND USE THEIR IMAGINATIONS??????? listen maybe i do have the unpopular opinion here but the bottom line is that weve never fucking known what was going to happen but that didnt stop anyone from imagining different scenarios so why should the end be any different?? all hussie did was pass the reigns (horse joke) you guys have all the information you need you can either do something with it or keep on whining that it didnt feel complete.,, your choice

Remember I told you I bought a cute notebook at Urban Outfitters? At first I didn’t know what to use it for, because I already have a “main notebook”, but then I got an idea. I wanted to paste a photo on every page on the right, and quotes on every left page. I really liked this idea, because I thought you would have a really inspirational notebook when it was full with photos and quotes. On the photos above you can see how it looks so far. I like it and I’m really glad I bought this notebook.

Let me know if you are going to do this/something similar! :)

Tammy Talks, a lot

Aah, it’s Monday! My family has left for their own trip so my house is mine again and boy am I glad! The trip was nice as a microwave level cook like me got to eat well but I’m happy to be back and get creative again!

One thing I’d like to say… I left in such a hurry on Thursday that I didn’t have time to say this but… Thank you everyone for your nice messages. I’ve gotten so many messages from people telling me how much they love my works and or how my works have inspired them to draw. Thank you everyone again. I draw for my own fun but gosh darn it’s wonderful I can brighten up so many people’s days with my silly doodles too.

I might also finally star accepting commissions again soon. I think I’ll accept a few paypal commissions and see how interested people are and then decide if I start accepting commissions as my full day job. Be on a look out for that.

Now that I got that said… I’m sure you people are… excited. It’s new week and I did promise something special this week. Yep, the splatoon comic. I have not forgot about it. I just ask… WAIT! Don’t throw rocks yet! I just ask you to be little… just a little more patient with me.

I’m still waiting words from my proof reader who’s going through first 4 pages. I’d also like to make a proper cover and chapter page for the comic which are on my list for today. Meaning… I finally need to come up with a subtitle for this comic. It’s called “Splatoon” but it really needs a subtitle too. 

If you guys have any ideas, feel free to comment here. Again, it’s the story mode from the game starring Blue and Orange, going through the octovalley campaign and saving the great zapfish. 

I also decided that I’ll update this comic in page bundles. Meaning I won’t update this comic every single day but when I do, you’ll get 3-6 (maybe even more) pages at time so each update progresses the story nicely. 

Hope that sounds nice to you all. I am very excited to get back to working on this comic. On my trip I had a time to plan some scenes for the 3rd chapter and I pretty much have the whole comic planned out now. Anyway, I better get some things done and then start working on that cover art. I’m as excited as you guys are about getting the first pages out!

 Everyone stay fresh!

Pairing: Min Yoongi x Reader, Park Jimin x Reader

Genre/Warnings: Fluff, Smut, Angst / language

Word Count: 13,025

Description: As his friend and girlfriend, you constantly told Min Yoongi, former underground rapper and now successful rap star, to go to you if he ever needed help. When he lost himself and pushed you away, you left. 3 years later… he decides to take you up on that offer.

A/N: I was inspired by the song Like You… I honestly feel like it matches Yoongi as a whole in this fic. I’m not sure where this may take me, but we shall trek together. Also, I’m so sorry for how long this is… and… please enjoy!

“Your phone’s ringing.”

You were laying in bed after another day of work. At age 23, you were doing well as a talent scout, having a keen eye for the creative scene ever since you were in high school. Those were the days when Namjoon begged you to accompany him to underground rap battles and helped him nurse injuries from his angry opponents. It only seemed logical that your time was spent finding the next big thing.

Your cheeky boyfriend was pouting as his spiel about his day of practices and photoshoots were put to a halt. The sound of your constantly ringing work phone was often silenced by the time you were home though. It was your personal phone that you kept on just in case of any emergencies, so that did pique your interest. Only a few of your closest family members and friends ever dared to contact you there.

“Sorry, babe.” You said, wiping away his feigned sorrow with a quick peck before grabbing your phone. You cooed, “Gimme a sec, yeah?”

He nodded, feeling just as satisfied with that said. “Alright,” His lips pulling into a proper grin once again.

You hadn’t looked at the caller ID when you pressed ‘accept,’ not thinking much of whoever might’ve been calling you. Although you were guessing it was probably Namjoon or something. He usually had some philosophical thing to talk your ear off about.

Before you could say, ‘hello,’ the person on the other line had said, “Y/N?” You felt your smile falter just a little bit and your heart was beating erratically.

“…Yoongi?” You asked in disbelief, rising from the bed.

Jimin was giving you a questioning look, but you mouthed, ‘Later.’ His dark mop of hair nodded before he pulled your free hand over to his lips and pressed a small peck on them.

You had a long story to get through after this conversation. But that was all you could think about now was Yoongi…

“Hey… Y/N.” He breathed deeply into the phone.

You felt a lump in your throat begin to form and your mind seemed to be flashing back to eons ago. It weighed heavily now, being brought back to the time when you were a young, stupid girl in love. What was he doing calling you again after nearly 3 years of silence? Was it the ultimatum you left him?

Your heart trembled at the thought.

“I -um- wanted to take you up on that offer from a few years ago…” He spoke again, answering your unspoken question.

You asked immediately, “What’s that exactly, Yoongi?”

“I… I need your help.”

Why do you think it’s okay for you to just walk in and out of my life? If you loved me at all you wouldn’t have left the first time. I know I shouldn’t let you in again, but now that you’re back I’m still hoping you came because you love me, but you’re just going to leave again, aren’t you?

WOW. 750 followers. I’m just blown away.


Anyhow, havent really gotten anything too big done during the holidays, but here are some random bits and bobs I’ve done.
first of all - I built a warrior statue in front of the church. I like how it looks, but I think I have to move it a bit, as its a bit overwhelming in its current spot. Also added that little lighthouse that you see on the left side of the pic.

Then I made some adjustments to the airship in the port, gave it a propeller and some markers for the rear end, so it wont end up in a airship-catastrophe.

And finally, I added this little old market square in front of the station building. Just a little place where the merchants of the city can sell their goods and stuff.

I have also hit kind of a builders block. I really want to build something cool, but I just cant find the inspiration to do so. Any advice?

NaNoWriMo is in four days. By now, a good handful of guides on how to survive this challenging, writing-packed month have already been published, and most of your friends within the writer community are probably already finished outlining their stories’ twists and turns and have a whole set of full, round characters. But you seem to be in a dark metaphorical void of discouragement; your usual inspiration and creativity has left you and you’re beginning to doubt whether you’ll even have the slightest idea for a story by the time November 1st rolls around. Who’d have known that the biggest challenge of NaNoWriMo became before it even started?

Well, with the help of a challenge one of my friends made, I’ve come up with this guide to plot-building:

  1. List your top 10-20 favorite movies, books or tv shows (whatever you feel is fitting).
  2. Now, pick out you favorite thing from each of the titles - it could be a message, a character, a particular scene, a feeling you get from it or even just a quote.
  3. Play around with the list of things you now have. If you’ve picked out some characters, try to find out what makes them so endearing. If it’s a theme or a message, try to think of other movies/books/tv shows with the same message to see how it can be incorporated differently.
  4. By now, you should have some ideas floating in your head. Remember not to copy these things completely - use them for inspiration, not as a first draft. Try to put the things together and change little details from each thing until you have something that’s yours, but still has the core elements that you loved from the original.
  5. Go for a walk, listen to some music or write a drabble - anything that gets you thinking of the list of items and what you can make of it, and try to mold it together. It’s going to be hard work to develope a plot idea in just four days, but you can do it!
  6. If you need more help, try checking out my guide [here]. There’s a compilation of more good material for you WriMo'ers in there :)
