im only vaguely interested in it

Hey, I really want to get into art but I seriously don't know how to draw a body? The stick figure just isn't working for me, do you maybe know another way or maybe tips?

so quick disclaimer before i start: i decided to do the female body because i learned how to draw women before i started drawing men… and im also a woman LOL so i have a better idea of how to break down each body part… also curves are really fun to draw!! whereas men im still trying to figure out what goes where

i also think its easier to start off with women and then transition into drawing men? at least that’s what i find… so if anyone wants a follow up tutorial on men just let me know! 


i think when it comes to drawing bodies, i find that it’s a lot easier if you imagine shapes first

by recognizing certain body parts as shapes you can sort of configure a guideline first in the pose and proportions you want first before adding any details

for example this is how i would plan out a (very skinny lol) female body before starting

so in red is my actual organic process, which is really quick and fluid and then in black is just a more defined demo of the shapes i have in mind 

one of the biggest problems i see for people starting out drawing bodies is that they’re so caught up trying to get every detail correct, by the time they’re finished the proportions are all off… so by planning the shapes first i can ensure i have every part the correct length and width i want

ok again this is going to be a really long post so more details on each body part under the cut!

May we get some screenshots of Kit Fisto's eyes from the battle of Mon Calamari? His pupils are only visible while he's underwater and I need to see them.

Interesting…

I feel like it is vaguely perceptible though.

I think you can see it more clearly in this one though!

I hope that these work?

Hi there! Do u have any advice for someone suffering a severe case of art block? I find that i cant mentally get myself in that headspace where i actually WANT to achieve something. It doesn't help the fact that im an animation student in the thick of the semester where theres deadlines left, right and centre. Any advice from ur own experiences would be more than appreciated!

hi!!! hey buddy!! thanks for asking me im honestly flattered that you would come to me w this and also, strap in pull up a chair lets talk for a minute

first things first, lets get this out of the way: i always have art block. i love drawing, i’ve loved it for my whole entire life ever since i figured out i could do it, but it’s always hard for me. every second, every time. im eternally grateful to have as many followers as i do here (thanks, everybody) because i have spent the majority of my life just occasionally scribbling off something i was vaguely interested in and only recently have i had the pleasure of other people being interested in those things. this is a huge motivator for me, which i know every third artist on any social media platform will tell you is “””””””not why you should do it, do it for yourself”””””” etc etc ad nauseam. but it works for me: knowing that i can draw something, even if it took me twenty minutes, and someone out there will appreciate it. i love that. but i don’t think i have the natural ability or ambition that i think a lot of others have. it’s a lot of work for me, it takes a long time, i’m constantly berating myself and wishing i could improve faster and screaming at my devil hands for not eating what my brain cooked up.

SECOND: i never finished my stint at art school (which was ALMOST TEN YEARS AGO at this point), so i may not be an excellent authority on this subject. deadlines and pressure are not my strong suit. i don’t handle them well, given the information detailed in point one. you did ask, though, so i’ll answer you as well as i can

ALL THIS TO SAY: the way i get myself to Want To Do Things is generally to literally fucking force myself to do it. whether this is trawling inspiration blogs for something that catches my eye (i maintain my own regularly for occasions like these, so i have a handy resource to go to when i can’t think of anything i even want to draw), doing a few rounds of life drawing, going through old art and attempting to redraw something i really liked but know i could do better now, or honestly The Extreme which is getting myself fully and emotionally invested in some form of new content (which i do uhhhhhhhhh a little too frequently) – find something, anything that stirs you. then draw! even if it’s crap that you’d never show anyone in your entire life, even if it’s sketches you’ll never finish, i mean jesus christ i have like 900 unfinished .psds that are unintelligible half-formed shapes that only vaguely resemble something that inhabits planet earth. the only thing i have ever found that works is to just keep going, even when it sucks, until i can break through it JUST enough to feel like i’m not scribbling on a wall with crayola markers and my non-dominant hand. that’s all it takes, usually. if i can do a little bit, i can convince myself i’m capable of a lot, and that’s huge.

one more thing, and i’ve said it a million times and i’ll say it until i die: i think making things that you enjoy, regardless of their quantity or quality, is the most important factor in keeping yourself motivated and in the game, and it shows when other people see what you do! it shows in the pride you take in your work! i mean, i know objectively that a lot of things that i PERSONALLY make are not good or polished or professional in any way, shape, or form, and they never have been, and i’ve never operated under the illusion that they were. but i like them, and i like thinking about them and sharing them with other people who enjoy them and respond to them, and i think that’s a good, symbiotic relationship. if you aren’t invested in your own work, if the things you CAN make even when you feel like your garbage dumpster hands can’t make anything worthwhile, don’t make you both proud to have been the one to do them and ALSO inspired to do better than your own good good self the next time, you’re gonna feel like nothing you do is worth it. do stuff that matters to you and you’ll feel better about it because it isn’t just an assignment or a deadline, it’s something you care about. and you wouldn’t be asking me this question if you didn’t care, so i believe in you

(ps if any pals or fellow animation majors would like to tag in and field this question you’re more than welcome – my expertise is not particularly valuable in this situation xoxo)

You mentioned fucked up weird AUs in your one post? I'm interested. Tell me about your favourite one(s)!!

AAAaaaah thank you so much!!

Uhhhhhhh heck most of them involve N turning into some horrible Thing because he’s the Estranged Outsider with a Connection to the Bad Guys Even If It’s Not Willingly (yknow like how Eren from snk is a titan shifter or Rin from blue exorcist is part demon) and all of them involve vuvuzelashipping (Nxall the Nuvema lot) I don’t really have a single favourite but I’ll summarize the ones I like most (also note that some of them are good dad Ghetsis/Dadsis aus because u gotta balance out the angst somehow plus dadsis aus are Cool)

Under the cut because I literally can’t summarise for shit and I’m sure no one wants to scroll past 3 pages worth of this (mobile users I apologise since the app is SHIT and refuses to even acknowledge these)

-pushes nose into- how do you feel about therians? Not the now out of control tumblr "community" culture of it. Therians in general. I'm drunk on sadness and wondering of your thoughts.

i actually had to do some research for this cause i only had a very vague understanding of therians,,, and im still not super knowledgeable about them, but the idea seems cool. I do think its in the nature of humans/social creatures to be interested in other beings and their experiences, and relating and identifying with them. and if that connection takes on a spiritual or psychological significance that makes sense, tho i dont necessarily feel that way personally. id love to know your thoughts about this too (i wont publish them if you dont want)

im sorry ur having a sad/rough time, i had a bummer of an evening yesterday too, so i hope today id better for us both. take care of urself! 

I honestly feel like people like everyone else better than me, like I just don’t matter. everyone forgets about me, forgets about my feelings and even my interests. I just kinda happen to exist and sometimes others are vaguely aware of it. I’m sure part of this is my fault, cos I don’t really maintain a lot of contacts and I don’t always go out of my way to make friends, but that’s only because every time I tried to make or keep a friend, I was dismissed and brushed aside for someone else, anyone else. I feel like I don’t matter, because everyone always reminds me that I kinda don’t matter, maybe not directly, but when I’m the one who’s -always- overlooked or just…not even thought of…it’s just more of the same: nobody cares

Michael doesn't know why this random girl gang keeps showing up on their missions, but he knows it's the one that kidnapped Gavin since one of em (Dollface says Gav's dreamy voice in his head) is winking at his boi every two minutes. Whatever. Gav ends up in his bed more often than not. "Gross, huh? Like honey flavored cotton candy." Ruby Rose hip checks him as she passes. The blooming rose tattoo on the back of her neck makes his lips tingle, like he wants to kiss it. "Yeah. Totally gross."

“y-yeah. really, really totally fucking gross.” Michael manages. he is not blushing, he is not blushing, blushing is not a thing that he does, He hates roses anyway, Ray strangled that vague interest in them in the crib with all  the Minecraft.

 “ha, are you fucking drooling? gay.” Ray teases.

 “Shut the fuck up ray, we only need one sniper in this goddamn crew and Jeremy’s fucking better than you. or at least less high on heists.” Michael snaps back. “Besides. I’m not fucking drooling over Ruby Rose. She’s got a partner already, in fucking fact, im almost completely certain its fucking Dollface.”

“you would be correct.” Ryan cuts in.

“ok so why the fuck is that bitch winking at my boi!”

“Damn Michael, you sound jealous.”

“shut your goddamn mouth Jeremy. I’m not fucking jealous but if she fucking hurts him, I will skin her.”

“and then Rose will skin you. Look Michael, its not like Gavin hasn’t been the crew whore since he got here but he’s been staying in your bed pretty damn faithfully for the past 6 months. Meg is also a good friend of mine, so I can tell you she isn’t planning on hurting him and she’d also be happy to share. You haven’t lost your ‘boi’ just yet.” Ryan tells him. At this moment, Meg looks over at them all and fucking waves at him. “YOU’RE WELCOME TO COME JOIN US MOGAR. I DO LOVE A FOURSOME!” She called, and giggled into her palm when he spluttered, flaming red in the face.

Lindsay walked up besides her, snaking an arm around her waist. “Me and Gavin arent enough for you?”

“You said he was cute first!”

“He is cute, i just wanna know how much i have to step up my game.”

“Are you trying to tell me you weren’t just trying to entice him with your ‘womanly wiles’ Lindsay? I saw you bump hips with him, He never took his eyes off you.”

“Well my hi-“

“Do not make a Shakira joke,”

“…..My neck tats bring all the boys and girls to the yard. and by all the boys and girls I mean, Him, Gavin and you.”

“You are such a loser, and  Mogar over there hasn’t agreed to join us yet. Neither has Gavin, officially, for that matter.”

“Well, you still owe me that date, so we can just bring our plus 2′s and hash out all the less important details over dinner tonight.”

“What? Are you telling me that hour you spent on my face wasnt payment enou- you know what? Fine, fine, i stole this really cute outfit like 2 days ago anyway, fine. You go tell Gavin, I’ll go convince Mr. Grumpy-Gills over there to join us..”

devildart replied to your post “Late to the party, I know, but could Wroka’s special ability be that…

Can we see these in progress works or were they merely concepts? (Or do you merely wish to keep them from view because in that case im sorry for bothering you)

Unfortunately I was way too impatient for concept arting back in the day. I only remember vaguely doodling something in photoshop about the wing contraptions the dogs used, but I’ve just spent an hour digging into my old image files and have found absolutely no traces of it.

But I did find some other (less interesting/weird/WTF) concepts from The Old Days!

Hello Em! After seeing the question you got asking about the Wall-E cannibal theory it made me a bit curious on your thoughts on MatPat. Do you hate him, do you prefer to ignore him?

my brother says he kinda likes his fnaf theories, and although his chronicles of undertale fandom involvement are hilarious in and of themselves, ranging from “sans is actually ness from earthbound” to “i literally gave the pope a copy of the videogame”, im really just not all that interested in his content

i mean im just completely uninterested in his (and generally that) brand of “”theory”” where it’s just taking an innocuous piece of information/media and adding a Dark-n-Edgy layer to it, which of course, doesn’t actually add ANYTHING to the experience of the media in question, and only exists to make the person who pointed out a “potential edge” emulate this post

edit: i vaguely remember (bc my memory is really bad) my friend telling me he adds a lot of Nasty™ elements to his videos tho i forget specifically what they were but i do remember i said something to the effect of “ohh man gotta get those Views™ somehow I guess Ell Oh Ell. what a fuck.” when they told me

jeongahn  asked:

Med student Jeonghan trying to explain the orientation of bones to Music Arts student Jisoo, which involves a lot of touching and squeezing by said med student and a flustered Jisoo. IDK IM JUST BIASED I KEEP THINKING JEONGHAN WOULD BE A MED STUDENT

ooOOOOHHH ZUZUUU!!! YOU AND BONES I LOVE IT!!

i can picture it all and i am judyfnawfdsk

okay okay *DEEP BREATHES*

SO Jisoo is only like vaguely interested in what Jeonghan studies. it’s all kinda gibberish to him (his life works in notes and keys) and it kinda goes over his head. but he loves how passionate Jeonghan gets when he talks about it.
its like he lights up from the inside and it shines out of him in words and the flourishes of his wrists.
