For the first time in my life, Im not in school and Im not working. When people ask what Im doing, there is just this awkward silence because I dont know what to say. If I say Im sick, they look puzzled because I dont look sick. However, for the first time I am realizing that you dont have to look sick to be sick and you absolutely do NOT need other people’s validation of your illness.
feeling really isolated and lonely lately! i haven’t really hung out with someone for at least a month! or when i do hang out with someone it never works out or they don’t want to see me as much as i want to see them. a boy started talking to me and i really like him and we hung out once and i thought we clicked so well but now he barely talks to me and keeps rejecting me when i ask him to hang out! me being sad about said boy makes me isolate myself from everyone that is not him…. should i take a class in something? i dont want to take a film class either because im scared it will just annoy me….does anyone know a good type of class to take? i really dont have many people to talk to so im just going to put this long thought here right now
for those things you dont like about yourself, remember there is someone out there who LOVES those same things about you. even if it is some girl who tries talking to you only through asks who lives miles and miles away (ie: me) Each and every single flaw you think you have is something worth admiring in the eyes of another. i know im not fixing anything by telling you how special you actually are i just hope to spread some love your way, so even when you dont love yourself there are some who do
god i just want to protect you from every terrible thing in the world because you’re so precious and you don’t deserve to have anything bad happen to you and you’re so supportive and positive and if you ever need anything, like no matter what it is, I’ll skype you any time any day; I’m totally here for you anytime
So a friend mentioned this “Victor will have to leave because Makashin is dying” theory/thing going around and at first I was “meh” towards that, but then I considered all the possibilities it would open:
-Yuri and Victor constantly messaging/calling each other for support
-Yuri worrying that Victor won’t come back to his side afterwards, then coming to terms with the fact that he will
-Yuri feeling anxious about the competition because Victor isn’t by his side, but then realizing that doesn’t mean Victor isn’t supporting him
-Yuri deciding he’ll perform so well that it’ll entice Victor even through the television screen
-Yuri going to the “kiss and cry” feeling accomplished that he went well, yet depressed because Victor won’t be there…and then it turns out Victor took a special early flight to see him so he is there waiting for him, arms wide open.
-The realization that Yuri’s parents do not know how to take care of pooddle
i love your art so much!!!! the lighting, the hair and expressions, but most of all the poses!! i hope you dont mind me asking, but how do you go about planning the pose for a drawing (especially if its like an action or battle pose) like what kind of references do you use? its really hard to come up with something and i dont know where to look for inspiration. thanks!!
THANK YOU MY DUDE!!!!!! YOUVE LISTED ALL THE THINGS IVE STRUGGLE WITH WHILE DRAWING L OL
when im stuck on pose ideas, i usually just google some example poses L O L!!! i also look over some of my fav artists’ work. although i believe once you can grasp the way limbs etc. work, youll be able to create any pose you want. although i believe the crucial thing is to make sure whatever pose youre choosing is correct.
mia jumping in the air with a one vanishing point perspective
for more dynamic poses, try experimenting with camera angles.
mia with attempted 3 vanishing point perspective L MAO
energy lies in small details and gestures
although there isnt really anything wrong with this pose, you can add more energy by changing and adding a few things.
i hunched lyns back and shoulders more for tension and moved the sword to a more active, dynamic pose. the direction and flow of her hair further adds to the energy. dont be afraid to get our of your comfort zone to try more dynamic poses
Pining, Jesper thinks, is one of those things that no one should ever be subjected to.
Especially when it come to someone that is more than unreachable.
And he would know, with the scars in the pit of his heart and in the back of his brain shaped like the name of the deadliest boy in Ketterdam.
At first, it was admiration; admiration for Kaz’s strength, for that damned brain of his and, well, there was a little bit of envy for how Kaz was able to hide everything he felt, for the coldness in which he spoke and acted, a firmness that Jesper would never be able to have, too eager to feel everything in every moment and to wear his heart on his sleeves.
And there was a sadness, because even if Kaz was just an inch away from him he was untouchable, so unreachable that Jesper sometimes thought if he knew the Bastard of the Barrell at all.
Oh, he knows that it is hopeless, whatever it is that he feels, knows it a little bit more everytime Kaz looks at Inej, and even if Kaz himself maybe doesn’t even notice it, Jesper does; he tends to notice most things about thim, even if Kaz is, and how he manages it is a mistery to Jesper and it will always be, a black and white portrait of what he wants people to see.
He sometimes tries to imagine Kaz’s voice saying something nice, for once,and the sound is just a childish parody even in his head.
There are some nights, after a nearly suicidal mission, when they are all at the Crow and he thinks that it’s the time, feels it; he drinks some liquid courage with an awful taste and hopes to not puke his guts on Kaz’s shoes and he will ask, he will ask at least one question-
who are your parents?
where are they?
why the gloves?
were you always like this?
what made you like this?
But he never does, he never asks, and without question and all his faith in the dice and fate, he follows Kaz.
That’s what he does, and seeing the firsts sign of Kaz’s scheming face is like being at the table to bet everything he has, but without the satisfaction of ever winning.
And even know, he follows Kaz’s orders, making his way to a dying mill to fetch the poor sod Kaz Brekker took interest in.
Maybe it will be fun.
Jesper enters the mill, and when his eyes connect with a blue, naive gaze that screams rob me and the most beautiful, stupidly innocent face he has ever seen, he can’t help but smirk.
