is anyone actually going to reblog this

Time to test the waters and ask: Would anyone be interested in commissions?

So, it should come as no surprise (and if it does- surprise!) that I want to make art my career. Obviously, I should start small, and I think doing some commissions here on Tumblr is a good way to go.

Sp I’m going to make an information post about pricing and what I’m willing to draw soon, but I want to know if anyone would actually be interested in me doing commissions at all. Just reply, reblog or like- something to just say that heck yeah, they’ve got good art, sounds like a good idea!

Anyway, that’s that, have an absolutely delightful day.

there’s a really important difference between “I love this villainous evil character because they make the story way more interesting but I recognise that they’re a terrible person who deserves to be dropkicked into the sun” and “I love this villainous evil character and I will defend them with my life they are a precious sinnamon roll here’s 10,000 words of meta about why their behaviour is justified here’s 8000 angsty headcanons about how they’re secretly insecure and probably abused here’s my dubious justification for why they deserve a completely unearned redemption arc even though they’ve shown zero remorse or desire to change at all yes I know they gleefully murdered a bunch of people but if you look really closely at this screenshot you’ll see their dad didn’t give them enough attention as a child so actually they’re the real victim here” 

some of my favorite silly plotlines from Scottish ballads
  • Small village thinks illicit whiskey stills are its biggest problem until raiders show up and trash their everything. Death, destruction, etc. Raiders find whiskey still, get lit, pass out. Villagers murder them. Peace restored. Whiskey is king.
  • Shepherd lad spots fair maid skinny-dipping. Fair maid pleads for her virtue and/or clothing. Shepherd lad is complete gentleman, escorts her home with clothing and virtue intact. Fair maid demands to know what she has to do to get laid around here.
  • Plucky heroine’s boyfriend goes to sea, fails to return. Plucky heroine dresses in drag and goes to find him. Plucky heroine discovers boyfriend happily married to someone else. Plucky heroine shoots his head right off.
  • Do Not Stop By The Local Weaver’s House, You Will Get So Pregnant, Like, Super Pregnant, I’m Not Kidding, This Has Been A Public Service Announcement.
  • Wealthy farmwife habitually searches her maidservants’ dorm for SIGNS OF MEN out of concern for their virtue. Maids less concerned for their virtue are having None Of It. Maids hide scarecrow in dorm, farm mistakes scarecrow for prowler, farmwife decapitates scarecrow. Farmwife believes herself a murderer. Maids now permitted to do as they please, virtue-wise. 
  • Idiot son sent to market to sell cow. Scheming lass seduces idiot son out of cow, pants, and even shoes.
  • Dad returns from business trip to find daughter Super Pregnant, demands to meet the man responsible. Dad takes one look at man responsible and tells daughter “okay, you’re off the hook, I would have banged him too.”
  • Handsome stranger bribes fair maid to leave town with him. Fair maid rejects various bribes until handsome stranger flat-out offers her money, which she accepts. Handsome stranger turns out to be, to no one’s great surprise, the actual devil. Fair maid regrets her life choices.
  • Gallant knight goes forth to slay dragon. Dragon eats knight, but has indigestion.

ETA: If anyone has been reblogging this and wants to know what the songs are, here is the list! Or if you’re too lazy to click things, The Devil Uisge Beatha + Shepherd Lad + Billy Taylor + Tae The Weaver’s Gin Ye Go + The Straw Man + Cow Song + Willie Winsbury + The Devil’s Courtship + Sir Eglamore

anonymous asked:

If the art was that good people would see it anyway. Without the artist needing to reblog it 100 times

I see you’re stemming from liv’s @larvesta own answer about this and I’m not gonna lie, I’m really hesitant about saying anything on the matter bc i don’t do this kind of thing but I realise people actually think this way so here’s a proper answer. 

It doesn’t work that way. I should know, I should really know. People here on Tumblr get lucky often and you wouldn’t think that, especially if you don’t create content yourself. Things just don’t become popular all of a sudden, most of the time it needs to get reblogged by the right person and add the balance between having good content yourself as well as an ongoing status as a creator. Not to mention how you go about treating your followers, your personality and how you act here. And you’ll tell me; “But people with good art have so many notes! It must be because they’re good! See, you don’t need to reblog it so many times!”

I hope you know what it feels like to be an artist here because I do. I especially do. I have talked, reblogged, supported, and have met so many, too many artists here, some insanely obscure. Some whose work looks like it took so many hours and has very little over 50 notes; my work included. And I can tell you now that I can personally handpick and tell you that some of the work I’m most proud of and have took many hours on are not over 200 notes. I’m not saying I’m frustrated by that, because some of us are reassured in our skill but let me tell you that every time I think of a fellow artist out there who releases amazing art and earns very little notes who looks at their note count and wonders if they are good enough, my heart breaks. And there’s young artists who are still getting by, who are not as good yet but took the same amount of effort and time, they deserve to be cheered on. 

Because people think artists here are machines, capable of creating content without regards to who actually appreciates it. No one is like that, artists are fragile just like everyone else and people really forget that. They really do. 

People don’t just see the art out of nowhere, do you understand the huge amount in this platform? There’s millions of work everywhere, you need to be supported to be seen, you need to withstand the thousands of others around you and you might have to create something that’s away from the norm to stand out, you might have to take hours of your time. You don’t know unless you really indulge yourself this platform, you don’t know unless you yourself do work for more than four hours, no breaks and absolutely tired, and look at your note count to see a disheartening number. You have no idea, you really don’t.

And don’t guilt them, please. I could reblog my art so many times, but sometimes the thougt of ‘maybe it gets annoying’ always bears in my mind, artists are made to feel like it’s okay that they’re not being appreciated. I’m proud of those who reblog their art because they know they deserve better, and guess what? They do.  

There’s a difference between good content and popular content, popular content aimed towards a specific audience that you know will like and reblog that. Good content is a dangerous hit and miss. I really appreciate people who do art for things that are not popular, because sometimes they really do have to rely solely on their skills. I say it’s a dangerous hit and miss because you know it might not have that specific audience, but you still take the effort and time into it anyway. Imagine that; knowing something is popular but going for the alternative anyway; taking time, taking effort, putting your all into it. That’s absolutely insane, man. Imagine knowing you can put that time and effort into something popular that might attract way more notes, but still doing something else for the sake of that something else. 

Also there’s the matter of timezones, in which there’s a worldly concept that everyone is in different times and not everyone is here at the same time to see the same content. I don’t want to explain this; please at least understand the concept of time. 

Artists reblog their work because they want others to see it, to appreciate it. Because sometimes it’s the only way others can. Reblogging their own work is an artist’s way of supporting themselves and you think I’m going to let you let them think that that’s a bad thing? That they’re not allowed to do that? Go home, buddy. 

I don’t have anything against anyone, I just wrote this realising that people actually think this is actually how it works and even then, I don’t have anything against you, maybe you’re just misinformed, some just don’t know enough about this to really understand. 

So here it is buds: support artists supporting themselves. It’s as simple as that. 

I just reblogged a post but I’m pissed now so I’m going to make my own post.
People with BPD have to CONSTANTLY question if we’re being manipulative and abusive, even in the smallest of interactions. Overshared on feeling bad? Abusive shit I should die. Wait. Wanting to die makes me abusive too, and God help me if I tell anyone.
So, sometimes, we make tumblr posts telling other people like us that they aren’t inherently abusive, and there’s always at least one asshole who reblogs or comments saying “don’t forget that people with BPD can actually be abusive”. Which is not something we’re about to forget. I spend all day in a panic because I’m probably manipulating and hurting everyone, and I really probably shouldn’t have friends because I’ll just hurt them.

So first it was people bitching about people who /do/ hack their towns.
Now it’s people bitching about people who /don’t/?

What the hell. This is ~technically~ a kids game, y'all gotta chill with this nonsense. Who cares what people decide to do with THEIR game. If they wanna hack, so be it. If they wanna play vanilla, so be it. Who the actual fuck cares how anyone decided to play their game? It’s not affecting you in any way, shape, or form. If you hack, good for you! I do, too, & I enjoy it. If you don’t hack, good for you! I didn’t hack my game for the 1st 6 months I owned it.

It doesn’t matter what you do with your game, & if you’re going to give people shit for hacking or not hacking, you’re an asshole & I hope every tree you shake has bees on the day you forget to grab your net.

Kevin Keller and Jason’s Murder

We need to talk about how much Kevin knows. Because I think he knows more than he’s letting on. I love him and I don’t think he’s the killer, but we have to be realistic here.

- His dad is the Sheriff. No, this doesn’t automatically mean that he knows more than the others, but this means that he has the capacity and the potential to know more. In addition, the Core Four has been finding things out left and right. They’re probably telling Kevin all of this.

- Kevin’s sharp as fuck. Seriously, I know that maybe he hasn’t figured out what Joaquin really wants and he didn’t realize Joaquin was a Serpent, but he was able to recreate his dad’s murder board from memory. We don’t know how many times he’d seen it. For all we know, that was actually the first time he’d ever laid eyes on it. Chances are, he HAD seen it before, but he tells Sheriff Keller, “Nice murder board, Dad.” If Kevin’s seen it already, then the Sheriff doesn’t know that. Which brings me to my next point….

- Why didn’t the Sheriff comment on the fact that Kevin had recreated his murder board? Yes, we are missing a lot of scenes for Kevin, so his dad may have sat him down that night and talked to him about it, but his dad doesn’t even seem that shocked at the murder board. He doesn’t ask if Jughead was the one to steal the evidence, he’s there for Jason’s murder. Why doesn’t he ask why his murder board was perfectly recreated?

- The camera does tend to show closeups of Kevin when he’s in the room and valuable information is dropped. This could be a hint that he knows more than he’s letting on.

- But my main theory in that line is that Kevin knows about Dark!Betty. When she was going off on Chuck in the cafeteria, the camera focused on Kevin. He didn’t really look shocked, just uncomfortable and maybe a little guilty. We know Kevin and Betty are close- maybe he’s seen Dark!Betty before.

Again, I don’t think Kevin’s the actual killer, but I think Kevin knows a lot more than he says. 

If anyone else wants to comment on this, please feel free to reblog this post and add your opinions, or even drop a message in my ask box.

Imagine with me for a moment.

Imagine a teacher telling you there’s a big exam. They don’t tell you what day it’s on, what time it happens or what chapter in the textbook it will cover. Oh, and it’s your entire grade. You’re under immense pressure to get all A’s and this one class will ruin you if you score lower than an A.

Imagine feeling your stomach knot up because you don’t know how long you have to study, you don’t know what to study and the textbook is like 500 pages long.

Imagine crying every night as you try to power through all this information, but it’s impossible to retain it because there’s so much that you forget as much as you absorb.

Imagine crying when you wake up every morning afraid you missed the exam because nobody can tell you what time it is.

Imagine being stressed to the point of shaking and chewing your fingernails off whenever you go to class because today could be exam day and you’re nowhere near ready.

Imagine it finally being exam day. You were finally able to find out what time it is last night. You got an email at 2am saying the exam is at 7. 

Imagine being unable to sleep because you’re afraid you won’t get to class in time. 

Imagine going to school feeling exhausted and plopping into your seat in class. The exam starts…and it’s from a new edition of the textbook that everybody except you got, so all your cramming and preparation for the exam was for nothing. 

Imagine you bomb the test even though you gave it your best. But you are so angry that you weren’t allowed to adequately prepare for reasons that are entirely not your fault, but the failure is still on YOU. You walk out of the classroom crying in rage, kick every locker you see and go home to bury yourself under pillows for the rest of the day.

Imagine feeling like the only loser who failed that “really simple” exam and being reminded of it every time people talk about school.

That is what it feels like to be autistic and have my routine constantly shuffled around, have plans changed on me last minute and not getting enough info to prepare for something because the people who informed me of the change won’t give me any more details. All of a sudden I’m in the middle of huge sensory unknowns that I can’t prepare for, so the likelihood of having a very public meltdown may be extremely high.

Can you understand the utter frustration and helpless feeling? Do you understand how scary that is?

Be kind to the autistic people in your life. Don’t shuffle routines without warning. Don’t change plans at the last second without seeing if they’re okay with that or not. Try to be as informative as possible when mentioning something that’s coming up. Even if it’s something like “June 10th at 10:30am, dress for hot weather and expect it to be loud” is a lot more helpful than “it’s June 10th.”

Don’t get frustrated with an autistic person if they repeatedly ask you about something that’s coming up. It could mean they’re worried about it, are afraid you’ll forget about it or are hoping you have more than vague information to give them. 

Please, even if it’s the thirtieth time in an hour, try to answer nicely. Reassure them about their concerns if possible, let them know that you haven’t forgotten about it(or thank them for reminding you if you did) and give them information as it becomes available, or tell them that you’re working on finding out. 

Knowing that you’ll make sure it works out, that you remembered and that you are trying to find out about missing info can ease some worry. But make sure you actually DO look into it and pass along relevant info as soon as you know it. You’ll save the autistic person and yourself a lot of stress.

This whole scenario applies to autistic people who can talk and don’t need a lot of daily help as well as the nonverbal autistic people who need lots of daily help and can’t make their communications understood.

Actually, this goes especially for caregivers of nonverbal autistic people who need lots of daily help and can’t make their communications understood– it’s so easy to drag them through your day and forget that they have wants and needs too. 

If a major part of their routine is something like walking in circles around the living room while watching Star Trek reruns before dinner, tell them about it instead of dragging them out the door at a time they’re expecting to stim by walking and enjoying their favorite show.

Because what you’re doing is the equivalent of telling somebody you’re going to a silent mime show and then taking them to a noisy construction site instead. Their brain is prepared for a quiet experience, so their mentall walls aren’t up. What do you think is gonna happen?

can people stop getting frustrated when an autistic person says “I don’t understand”, whether its about learning something or just getting lost in drama or anything

not everyone is going to process information or facts at the same pace

i don’t like it when someone is mad at me because i have a slow time understanding a concept or that i’m “playing dumb”

The Toronto Comic Arts Festival was great but also very dichotomous? Seeing the amazing work was inspiring; realizing how much even “successful” people are struggling was not.  Let me try to summarize the big things I took away from TCAF:

  1. Comics and Games are actually very good, and you can see that as soon as you create a space outside the influence of WB/Disney/AAA/&c 
  2. Comics and Games are queer as hell, see above. In fact, it feels like the field is incredibly diverse right now? 
  3. Most of the people creating the indie stuff you love have day/part time jobs, because patreon/ad revenue (ha ha ha) don’t pay enough 
  4. The web is increasingly hostile to small creators as FB, Twitter, Tumblr & Reddit design their systems to bury unsponsored content and bury or simply blacklist outright external links. These sites want everything to be sponsored, and hosted on THEIR servers. (Reminder: if you’re reblogging my articles, thank you for doing so because you are literally the only way my stuff is getting seen by anyone at this point. Tumblr blacklists external links now.)
  5. The fandom spaces that should be supporting this diverse work are actually a maelstrom of doxxing, identity policing, callouts, &c. 

So in summary, comics and games have a flood of diverse experimental creators who go unsupported by the market, government, or fans. I don’t know how to quite square how dire yet how inspiring/hopeful this is simultaneously. But that’s life in 2017 generally I guess.

Fun idea - Stop mocking aro culture for once. I keep seeing posts joking telling people to go outside in reference to aro people trying to explain squishes and other alloromantic people are mocking the idea of queerplatonic relationships and saying it’s literally just friendship and that people are idiots.

Please, just… Stop. If you don’t understand it, that’s okay! You don’t need to, but if you don’t have the experience you can’t tell people that the way they experience things is invalid or identical to some other thing.

tl;dr: mocking squishes and queerplatonic relationships isn’t funny and I really hope some of you guys will understand that and stop.

like u think i’m joking or not entirely serious when i say “it is intensely difficult to introduce people to the fact that i’m multiple” like no it is immensely fucking difficult. first i have to trust the person enough. then i have to know they trust and respect me in return. then i have to find a way to explain multiplicity itself in a way so they don’t think i’m off my rocker. then i have to explain and debunk every single fucking myth about multiplicity as fast as possible cause not ONCE in my life has anyone had a goddamn idea about what actually goes on inside my fucking head and you think movies like split are gonna help!!! you think they’re gonna fucking HELP!!!!!!!!! you think they’re just good harmless fun???? nice funky fucking HORROR MOVIES???? suck my ASS just fucking SUCK IT

like okay i didn’t mean to go on a rant there about split but it is DAMN NEAR IMPOSSIBLE to let everyone be themselves UNLESS we’re public about it and then we get the STIGMA. Taling to people about multiplicity IS NOT EASY

this is okay to reblog whether you’re multiple or not i’m just pissed off and TIRED

Figured I’d post this again separate in case anyone wants to reblog just this. A young “Lazuli” actually appeared in Akira Toriyama’s “Go! Go! Ackman” manga series in a cameo. She’d been seemingly cornered by thugs and is rescued by the title character. The second image is her way of expressing “gratitude”.
(Seems some things never changed.)

While never explicitly stated to be her (and given Toriyama’s propensity to reuse old designs as a nod to his other works), it is her exact character design (even the same head on a younger body) and is both in line with her stated past as a delinquent and her personality.

That said, this is almost definitely meant to be how she was as a youth.

anonymous asked:

I don't know if it's possible but if someone out there can could you please break whatever curse is on me because I want someone to care about me and I want to stop fucking everything up and I have to be cursed, no one hates anyone as much as everyone hates me and it really hurts and I don't know how to do it myself so maybe that could be a suggestion

Nonnie I don’t know if you’re actually cursed, but if anyone would like to give it a try go ahead. Also, nonnie message me, I’d like to give it a try, but if you’re not comfortable doing that now try these:

To block out evil & keep you safe

To make you feel loved

Make you happy

Instead of casting this with reblogs cast with sweet comments to nonnie, likes to charge. 🖤

every now and again i will see one of those cute positive posts that’s like “reblog if anyone can message you any time about anything!! i love making new friends!!!” and i will hit like to support the idea of being friendly and then go to reblog it before remembering that i am actually a huge bitch who only projects a vague aura of friendliness that cannot withstand any serious scrutiny


Idk if anyone has already done this but whatever!

So you know how the Diamonds had thousands if not millions of gems bubbled?

The concept didn’t seem to bother Rose much,

nor the Crystal gems.

 It makes me wonder…

How many of these gems are actually corrupted?

It’s more of a thought provoker than a theory i suppose since I’m not going any further with this.   ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong or add your own two cents in a reblog! Thanks for reading!
