is-this-what-people-call-art

Every time I see someone (incorrectly) calling someone else a pedophile for shipping Yuri with an older teenager, I think to myself, “Woah, I wonder what these people would assume about me when they find out my favorite manga of all time is Kaze to Ki no Uta.”  If being interested in something means you condone the bad things about it, then damn.  Damn.  I must be a terrible person for finding a manga so achingly beautiful when it covers such dark themes.

Sit down, honey child, and let me tell you the story of Gilbert Cocteau, another green eyed 15 year old with pretty blond hair hanging in his face.  If you are horrified by the thought of Yuri Plisetsky being shipped with another character, your head’s probably going to explode when you see all the appalling shit that happened to Gilbert before he even reached the age of 15.   A warning, though. If you assume this manga and the people who love it are in support of any of the terrible things that occur within it, I will personally kick your ass, because you will have missed the entire point.

color me terribly curious as to what rcdart did. pls explain. (I've always thought their art was like, fuckin cringey lmao)

They make very transparent fetish art and try to pass it off as trans representation

There’s nothing wrong with drawing nsfw art of trans people, and nothing wrong with finding them attractive, but when your “attraction” is impossible and cartoonish and disgustingly fetishistic, a line has to be drawn. Calling people who have issues with it “transphobic” is ridiculous and absurd

wheee I drew my Pokémon Moon MC with Lillie because I ship them they’re super gay and I love it ahhhhhhhhh!! I’m not entirely sure what MoonXLillie is called but until I find out I’m calling it “MoonflowerShipping”. 

Drawing humans is not my forte so I’m pretty pleased with how this went. Maybe someday I’ll be more comfortable drawing people, practice makes perfect and all that. 

Also on DeviantArt.

Hey, I've been conflicted lately.... I started going to an arts school and hence accepting that I enjoy wearing and doing more feminine things... But ever since I've started doubting myself and my identity... I like the idea of being called a (1/?)

a non binary trans guy, but I’m not sure how people would take that… Like I’m still a guy, but I’m also kinda removed from it?? I’m just not quite sure what to do here… Any advice?? (2/2)

Maybe look into demiboy? Or genderfluid (between guy and agender). And as far as people “taking that” it’s about what you feel is right and how you want to be addressed. If that involves a change in pronouns, then that’s okay. 

You don’t need to explain anything more than your pronouns to people unless you want to. 

And arts schools tend to be better at accepting trans/nb/demi identities.

anonymous asked:

what advice do you give to someone dealing with people constantly dissing their fav character or ship? :<

Do you want the mature answer or my way of doing things? Cause the mature, smart and healthy thing to do would be to ignore them and realize that there’s always gonna be assholes out there that have their own perspective on things that they’ll loudly tell everyone about, or…

You can do what I do and troll the fuck out of them by using whichever talents you have to insult, degrade and humiliate them personally or do it to their ships/fav characters/self-inserts. 

I used to hate the fuck out of people who made Hellsing ocs/self inserts/mary sues. So I’d take their shitty character, trace their even shittier art of said character while making small adjustments in the colour palette and details and call the shitty character mine and draw a better version of the stolen and renamed character next to the shitty rip and tell people to “stop drawing my character like that, do it better like this”. It drove people nuts and I had people going batshit insane and threatening me over it because the policies on deviantart made it so they couldn’t do anything about it. So many tears, such good memories.

When the director of The Ghost in the Shell calls Scarlett Johansson “the best of her generation” what he actually means is she’s the most popular.

Only white actresses were considered for The Ancient One.

A Chinese actor with 15 years of martial arts experience auditioned for Iron First and was told he had to be the villain to a white hero.

An Indigenous actress was told to her face that she couldn’t audition for Tiger Lily because they didn’t want the character to be Native anymore.

So until Hollywood stops discriminating at casting calls and allows people of color their fair shot in this business I don’t want to see anymore white people being held up as the best in the business in defense of whitewashing.

the amount of shits tumblr doesnt give about its artist base is so enfuriating like. come on guys. the most common things you see nowadays are like

  • an artist whos gaining popularity recently gets some callout post for some problematic thing they did like two years ago
  • an artist slips up a few times and next thing you know theres multiple blogs entirely revolving around talking shit on them and/or gathering every single solitary thing theyve slightly done wrong in their entire existence online
  • putting “i dont ship this but…” or “this would be better with…” in the tags and/or comments section of fanart
  • reposting without permission
  • using without sourcing
  • when they do something morally wrong they’re stamped with the PROBLEMATIC label and thrown under the bus faster than they can even apologize or realize what they did wrong
  • being called selfish/vain when they ask people not to use their art
  • being told fanart isnt “real art”
  • more stuff i cant even remember right now

like its gotta stop im so sick and tired of it. these people dont have to be posting art on here but theyre choosing to and the amount of artists on tumblr is dwindling out of fear of being deemed as a bad person. there’s a difference between genuinely problematic people and artists who make mistakes and the line between them has got to start being recognized

Asanoya bartender/regular AU! (ノ^ヮ^)ノ*:・゚✧

  • Neither one will ask the other out because they both think it’d be rude while Noya’s working
  • Asahi’s usual is pink and exceptionally fruity

What makes you an Art Thief

I’ve been talking to reposters for a while now, asking them to not repost art without permission and explaining why it’s a bad thing and one thing I noticed, it’s that most people are very shocked when people call them art thief.

So here I’m gonna show the 4 most common things I hear from people that post stuff without permission:

IF YOU REPOST ARTWORKS WITHOUT PERMISSION PLEASE READ THIS!

  1. I didn’t steal anything, I found that pic on We Heart It/ Pinterest/ Instagram/ Internet!
    That’s the first thing everyone says when accused of stealing artworks. Just because you didn’t say “this is mine” doesn’t mean you are not an art thief. If you copied an artwork and reposted without permission you are basically saying you can do whatever you want with that work because you found it somewhere.

    CONCLUSION:
    If you repost artwork without the creator’s permission you are considered an art thief, doesn’t matter where you got the picture from.

    —–

  2. “I didn’t know/ couldn’t find the original creator.”
    Excuses, excuses, excuses.

someone: the makeup/beauty industry is a site of extreme anxiety and financial ill to women and girls both in terms of expenses and in terms of employment. if a woman does not conform in some way to compulsory femininity she may even be less likely to find companionship in her life, which can cause depression and other mental health issues. it is clearly more than simply a hobby or an art form in our neck of the woods.

me: yah

someone: i blame [dumb social media site] and The Culture™ and vapid people obsessed with instant gratification for this

me: (i summon the entire cast of sesame street with a mere telepathic utterance and the set is phased in by hundreds of producers working in tandem while birds are chirping) What we bout to learn today is a word called Patriarchy. Big Bird gon head n let all the girls know wusgood…

The Psychology Of Messy Rooms: The Most Creative People Flourish In Clutter

Originally posted by withheartsinhereyes

Do your parents, coworkers, dorm mates, or house mates complain about your messy work space? It’s strange at times, but the prevailing school of thought calls for order and organization in order to achieve success. Modern psychology is beginning to paint a different picture.

Mercies - original print from The Worship Project.

In the wake of one of the most horrific weeks of recent years, I’ve been reflecting on what message I feel that the Lord has for His people.

Obviously I don’t presume to know the mind of God, but I’ve found that when a song gets stuck in my head, it often contains something that I feel the Lord wants to speak to us. You could read this and call it “cliche”. You could read this and hopefully catch a glimpse of the Father heart of God. I pray you abide with the latter.

“It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.” - Lamentations 3:22-23. (Song lyrics from “Mercies” by Miriam Webster)

There are two points that I feel the Spirit whispering to my heart:

1. The Lord is full of steadfast LOVE and MERCY for all those affected by these tragedies last week (incl. all the suffering the globe-wide). He’s relentlessly pursuing everyone on this earth, and He will use whatever situations surround us (no matter how horrific) to try and woo His children back to Himself.

2. His mercy, steadfast love, and faithfulness is not just for the victims. Jesus is WILDLY in love with every person. From the innocent victims to the ISIS radicals. He came to earth that NO man perish, no matter how evil they are, or the horrific things that they might do.

So amongst all the ‪#‎prayforparis‬ sentiments, I want to offer a reminder to‪#‎prayforeveryONE‬. No matter how demonized, troubled, disillusioned, or filled with hate, someone may be - they’re not beyond the loving mercy of Christ. He died for them as much as for you and me.

We join with the groaning earth, “weeping with those who weep”. And we fervently turn to Jesus and whisper “come Lord Jesus, come.”

I still would hesitate to call this an actual “tutorial” since it’s so short, but lips are a lot easier and quicker to break down and explain than a full body. No slam to the other anon ask at all- I’m always super flattered when I see asks like these in my inbox. I consider myself to be a forever student, always learning new things and new ways of doing them, but I appreciate that people feel like they can ask me for tips. I really like sharing what I’ve learned if it helps anyone, I know going through school gathering info and tips from as many artists as possible helped me!

Just as always, I’m so strapped for time, I can’t always fully explain/draw out how I do things ;u; so ‘tutorials’ and my ability to fully flesh out one are a ways off from being reality. But something small like lips is a relatively easy thing for me to break down so, here you go anon. I hope this helps- thank you so much for asking! <3

[please do not repost this anywhere else! thank you!; links are ok]

i came back to check on my tumblr after a while and i was honestly very surprised to find that i have over a hundred asks – not to mention that i had also received emails on my gmail account. every single message was a message of encouragement and kindness, and i was very surprised by the fact that so many people stood by me and my art ♥ your support is overwhelming and i would like to say that i appreciate it all so much; i don’t know what i would do without it! ♥

+story under the cut!
