it all starts somewhere

Not really a request, but my dad is an artist and he and I used to do this thing when we were younger where I’d draw half of something and then he’d fill in the rest. Like I’d draw a really shitty, lumpy horse body and he’d draw the head in like incredible realistic detail with ribbons in it’s mane and stuff. But I just imagine that’d be something Yusuke would do with his kids and it’s just super cute!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I hope you don’t mind me sharing this publicly, but this is so adorable??? Like I want to write a scenario for this soooooo bad now dkfhdkfj. I can totally see Yusuke being a super sweet dad and doing things like this with his kids and he’d be so patient with them. Like he’d just chuckle and say, “We all start somewhere. I’m sure you’ll excel at anything you set your mind to.” And his kid’s just like ?????? because Yusuke still can’t say anything under 140 characters lolol. Anyway, thank you for sending this!! It made me smile like a fool lol and your dad seems super cool! I hope you’re both doing well! ^^

Pride month thingy

Since it is pride month the idea just came to my mind maybe it’s time to talk about this thing. I guess most of you know I am bisexual, but if not than hey I am bi. This is also a kind of coming out and I want to share my story with you.
So I am 17 ( for a week yey) and I know my sexuality sure for two years. I always was obsessed with gay things, like this is also known by everybody I guess. 
So the story starts somewhere there, I was always totally okey with all the lgbtq members, I also had friends who aren’t straight, but when I first realized I am bi, I couldn’t deal with it. And not because of religious things, because I am the most atheist living thing on this earth ( maybe Stephan Hawking is more atheist, at least he does it funnier). I always looked a bit boyish, I have a deeper voice, I don’t use make-up and I have a shorter hair. I also have the kind of problem that not that seeable, but i have mustache. Several times many people said I look like a boy, or they actually thought I am a boy. So when I fell into a girl I was afraid people will think I am lesbian ( what I am not, I had a boyfriend and I also can have crush on boys), or trans or i have no idea what in peoples mind going on. It was known for me that for many people it isn’t clear which word what means. And anyways I haven’t felt myself as an lgbtq people, like I also was into boys. This was a strange feeling, and it is still, don’t belong anywhere, being between the two sexual identity. I only said this to my best friend.
Almost a year ago we were talking in the class about lgbt members, and a girl said she thinks bisexual people don’t exist because they are just girls who can’t find a boy themselves, maybe because they are so ugly. A boy said bi girls are probably always cheating on their partners with the other gender. Than they started to speak about that, short haired girls are always lesbians and stuff. 
At this time I had something with a girl, and I felt myself so bad after this conversation, because I still didn’t come out, I didn’t protect lgtb people in this conversation I was just sitting there and listening to it.
 But than I started to tell this thing to my friends and they reacted really cute. They even supported my relationship with a girl and this made me so happy. 
My parents still don’t know about it and also people who aren’t closer friends to me. But I am trying to deal with that, being different is normal and if next time I will have a girlfriend we may could holding hands and kissing in the public as hetero pairs. 
What I want to say with this story is there is sadly still too many people who doesn’t think bisexuality exists or they don’t know what this is. There is still too many stereotype about things like short haired girls are lesbians, and girls with boyish look are trans etc. I really want people to read about sexuality because this is important. 

GENDER IS CONFUSING

SEXUALITY IS CONFUSING

FEELINGS ARE CONFUSING

EVERYTHING IS CONFUSING

any FITNESS goal for any age, gender and fitness level. 

We all had to start somewhere 

Support young readers

No matter what. Don’t shame a kid for wanting to read a book you don’t like. Don’t shame a child for choosing a comic book instead of a novel. A famous book series that you may not enjoy? Who cares! Let them enjoy it! Who cares as long as it gets them reading! We all started somewhere. Manga? YA? Classics? Comics? Picture books? Who cares what they are reading, care about the fact that they ARE reading! Support young readers!

Hell all teachers should do this in the mornings!! You see her class is predominantly black. All ideas start somewhere..and I’m pretty sure she never once told anyone it was her idea…come on. 

We gotta stop reaching with certain shit, unless this lady get on TV or something and start claiming it was her idea or taking praise for it this should not be a problem! The whole point is to engage and be interactive with the kids. 

btw Barry White Jr actually said in his video that he hopes more teachers start doing it.

Regarding OCs: Treat them kindly.

First of all, we all started somewhere and belittling or berating someone’s creativity is bullshit and just plain cruel. I get that there are some OCs you don’t jive with and that’s cool, I’m selective just like everyone else, but that doesn’t give you or anyone else the right to talk shit about them. Remember those “embarrassing” times where you were a one-liner only OC that was probably something “generic” or “cliche” or even a “Gary/Mary-sue”? Yeah, Pepperidge farm remembers that shit honey. No one starts off with some immaculate and elaborate character design, plain and simple.

Instead of being rude or cruel, its better to offer advice as a “veteran” of writing. Give them tips to help them improve rather than tearing them down and making them feel bad or making them feel like they shouldn’t even try. Remember that one person when you were younger that you looked up to because holy shit their writing and style was amazing and you felt so happy just getting to read it? Or that person that wrote with you for the first time? Or maybe your friend that you started off with in general? Having those moments are imperative to a writer’s growth and if you get to be that person they look up to or the person that gave them a little advice is friggin’ great okay? It is an amazing thing and you could literally be helping them become the next nation wide known creator.

But you’d never know if they never had the aspiration or hope to become that if you just shoved their face in the ground.

Canon characters are someone’s OCs. These characters are created by someone, became big hits, and are now written by others because we enjoy them so much. But never forget that they are the creator’s original character.

So be kind. You don’t have to like someone’s OC, you don’t have to even interact with them or anything at all, they might not be your cup of tea. But that doesn’t give you the right to be a dick. Period.

For everyone caught up in the shipping drama in Star Vs, allow me to put my two cents in: JanJackie 

Just, like, come on, look at these two and TELL ME they wouldn’t be the coolest and best girlfriends Echo Creek has ever seen 

These pictures have captions that help me make my case a little bit better, but just THINK ABOUT IT. Accept JanJackie. Love JanJackie. They’d be the best girlfriends anyone’s ever seen. 

My shipper friends, please, consider it. Think about this dynamic. 

I rest my case

So! I decided I want to try my hand at animating. I have A LOT to learn but I really want to do a Harry Potter animated tattoo series type thing. But yes here’s Sirius pre-Azkaban. I know there are a lot of issues but it’s my first time animating and we all gotta start somewhere. Anyways for the tattoos. The footprints for the map, quidditch because I imagine he was really into it, a stag to represent James, and the moon cycle to represent Remus. Nothing for Peter because FU Q Peter Petigrew.

The definitely not definitive sports anime guide

So I did a thing a while back (a year ago, in fact) where I tried to make a primer for sports animes. I have since watched Many, Many More so let’s do this again (still no Daiya no Ace tho).
Based purely on my own meandering experience, here’s a hopefully comprehensive guide on picking your next set of adoptive sons.

Note: There’s ten shows so this is going to be long, you guys. Just… so long. And there will be many exclamation points.

I never thought I could be a runner

I made myself wake up at 8am after a long week at work to have time to go eat breakfast and go run before my best friend arrives for the weekend.

It’s little changes like this that make me realise how I now prioritise running. I can make time for it I just need to get up a bit earlier or make plans a little later in the evening. I’m so excited and impressed at how much my body has changed over the last few months. Knowing that I can go out and run 6K is such an amazing feeling. I can enjoy the sun and just clear my mind from all the shit that has been happening this week.

When I started I couldn’t even run for 5 minutes. Honestly. When I very first started I think I managed about 30 seconds. So please don’t feel discouraged if this is you, we all start somewhere. I was there and I thought there is no way in hell I will ever be able to even run 1K. Then I did, then it turned into 1 mile and then 2 miles. Your body is capable of wonderful things, please treat it well and challenge yourself. If we don’t, we won’t change.

You gotta start somewhere, point A to point B and all the way to point Z. Start from the first page, then the next and the next till you write a whole book. Start from the bottom and work your way up to the top. No one tells you for how long though, how long you have to be at the bottom till you rise up. Time is infinite, and it gets you down when someone else beats you to the top, it gets you down when someone begins at the top while you’re still all the way down there on the ground, while they were placed on the summit of the mountain. Time gets you down, people wear you down, you start to lose your color, your spirit, your mind… “For how long?” I keep asking myself, when am I going to start living? When is it going to be my turn? When will life scream “YES” to me. I am tired of waiting for my chance so I am creating my own, will life accept this or will it crush it down? Will it crush me down? I keep wondering, but no answer comes…

supersquiddy  asked:

Werid question but how do you get your traditional artwork to look so smooth but also sketchy? If that makes sense.

My main things are (this turned out to be a lot longer than I thought! Srry!)

Loose lines: draw with your whole arm if you can! (drawing anchored to your wrist can lead to Carpal tunnel syndrome.. and no one wants that)

Full lines: try to keep your lines fluid, fast and long (as opposed to short and scratchy lines that make one big line) look for YouTube videos on gesture drawing! Get things down quick and flesh them out later, usually the first thing we mark down will be the most accurate when doing gestures!

Sketch lightly: use heavy lines sparingly! They can really define a sketch but be sparing, there can be too much of a good thing. I always start sketches almost invisibly light to map out the bare bones of my drawings! Then because they’re so light, you don’t have to erase them if you don’t want to!

Shapes: shapes r your friends!! 🌸 use shapes to get the (figurative or literal) skeleton down!! Almost anything can be boiled down to basic shapes!

REFERENCE: IT! IS! OK! TO! REFERENCE! I can’t stress this enough, free reference photo databases are just a google away! Learn that anatomy fam! Even if you’re doing cartoons, it will be so much easier with the anatomical knowledge! Also, I have no problem with learning artists referencing my art when starting out with drawing.. 2 RULES TO REFERENCING PRE-EXISTING ART: 1) don’t claim it’s your art. 2) ask the artist if it’s cool first! Some aren’t okay with it and ya gotta respect it! ❤Also try to get off the crutch of referencing pre-existing art quickly! Referencing art helps you practice, but nothing beats referencing from real, organic life, because that’s where your style will come out.

Simplify: esp. pertaining to expressions, the more you complicate things, the harder it will be for it to read. It will get lost among the busyness. Look at the drawing as a whole as opposed to only paying attention for details. Don’t be concerned with making a masterpiece!! Sketchbooks should be messy!

Get back to basics: anatomy, colour theory and the elements of design!!! they help a whole heck of a lot!!! Never be satisfied with your knowledge of these basic things bc you learned them in like kindergarten,, okay????

A(cting)RT: you can convey a LOT if you have the mindset of telling a story with your sketch!

Cheap: don’t worry abt using fancy shmancy supplies! I get mine from the dollar store (sketchbook, erasers and mechanical pencils! Definitely get good paper if ur using copics or high quality markers but like I literally only sketch traditionally w pencil… ) I find I’m so scared to use expensive sketchbooks that I hardly draw in them and I hate everything I draw. I go through like 1 or more sketchbooks a month so… that would rack up quick if I was using like $20.00 sketchbooks instead of $2.00 ones.

Listen: Listen to music or podcasts or audio books or drawing tutorials if it helps!! It can sometimes even influence the mood of your drawing :0

Sketch often: every day if you can!! It’s a good habit if you want to get better!! And therapeutic!!!

Accept CONSTRUCTIVE criticism!!: It’s not an insult! It’s someone else’s view! Get critiqued often! And actually listen!! Know the difference between constructive and destructive!! Also join a community! Meet other artist! Collaborate! Art isn’t a competition! ❤

quick round!

Study art history: they’re famous for a reason!

Draw inspiration from everywhere!

When referencing, draw what you see, not what you know!

Think about drawing in 3D, more like it’s sculpting instead of drawing! Everything is made of flat plains and will cast shadows!!

If you’re up to it, challenge yourself! You’ll only get better if you step out of your comfort zone! Try to draw one new thing each sketching session!

Lastly

Don’t stress!: most important drawing tip! Drawing is supposed to be fun and therapeutic because it doesn’t have to be anything! All art is art and everyone who makes art is an artist, it’s not some exclusive club, we all start somewhere! This is your art journey! Enjoy the ride!

I know you just wanted to know about how I sketch but I couldn’t help myself!!! Sorry! Hope this helps! 🌸

Welcome to Night Vale.

Hey. Hey, Dirkjake folks.

Hey. Archie here. Sorry this ain’t fic or meta or anything.

I just wanted to say that… If you create content for people in this fandom to enjoy, you’re a fucking rockstar. If you signal boost cool content for your content creators, you are also a rockstar.

If you’re writing your first fic ever and you’re nervous, you are a brave person and I’m proud of you, my dude. We all start somewhere, and every other writer around you has been in your shoes and gets it. 

If you are writing your hundredth fic, dude, not only are you fucking awesome, you’re generous as shit, thank you for sharing with us.

If you have a doodle to share, people wanna see it. If you worked on a piece for days or hours, people wanna see it.

Thank you for making cool shit. And even when you make something that isn’t exactly to everyone’s taste, I think I speak for a lot of people when I say we are still glad you are making it. Not all stories are for everyone, but every story is for someone, and you never know how your work can help your fellow fanfolk.

There are people here who are hype as fuck to see your content, and I know the environment around this pairing in particular can be soured by jealous tryhards, but believe me, more want to cheer you on. Take some goddamn pride in the fact you are contributing positivity to a fandom instead of subtracting from it.

You’re awesome.

Running

Running has never come easy to me, I could barely run for 20 seconds the very first time I tried. I want to remind people that when you see posts of people doing a 10 mile run, or glowing with sweat after a 5K none of that come easily. We all have to start somewhere.

I decided I want to run a 10K, I started the couch to 10K app a few weeks ago and it was going okay. Then I took 2 weeks (1 because of sickness and 1 because of Easter holidays) and ate a lot of chocolate, but I made myself go out today. It was probably the worst run of my life (other than that very first one). I felt so self conscious and sweaty and tired and sick. But I reminded myself that I am doing this for me. I love pushing my body and seeing what amazing things it can do and I think running is the biggest challenge I can give my body. So I will continue to push myself, motivate myself to go out and run when it’s the last thing I want to do and start eating to fuel and nourish my body again. 

You don’t have to be a certain size, wear the best nike pros or track your runs. Do what works for you and remember to never compare your journey to anyone else. Use other people’s photos and updates to motivate yourself. We are all on our own journey, going at our own pace.
