it all starts somewhere

tried something a little more spicy and ambitious 💦💦💦

GENDER IS CONFUSING

SEXUALITY IS CONFUSING

FEELINGS ARE CONFUSING

EVERYTHING IS CONFUSING

I did a redraw of this  and all the embarrassment of making it my lock screen for a few weeks just to make myself less flustered was totally worth it. psssst. I turned it into a sticker and stuff on redbubble

There’s this movement going around of people being like ‘support mary sues and sparkledogs, everyone has to start somewhere, let kids have fun’ and thats all well and good and im down with that but can we at least do something about these kids giving their OCs schizophrenia and DID and other various psychoses because it makes them 'so random XD’ because that’s bothered me a lot for a long time

roses, roses, laid upon your bedspread, oh my, all this, all this i know:
but every night i kiss you, you’ll say in my ear   ‘ oh we’re in love, aren’t we? ‘
hands in your hair, fingers and thumbs, baby.
i feel safe when you’re holding me near,  love the way that you conquer your fear.

( based on this post by @hufflebee​ )

loving people (siblings, family, friends) is always so bizarre for me bcs i just stumble around in a confused awed melancholy regardless of whether i’m happy or sad abt caring about them bcs all this flesh just rends itself to bone someday you know?????? all this time, constant and unrelenting, being ridiculously & stupidly in love, trying so hard not to overthink it, watching kids traipse through an empty walmart parking lot in the dark and feeling like the pavement will swallow me and my big beating heart whole

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.

Made a video showing my old drawings and my art journey! Looking at some of these was both nostalgic and cringey hahaha. I️ hope to show that we all start somewhere and that anything is possible. Hope you enjoy it!! 🙈

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!

7 Excuses You Can Drop Today

Whether the goal is trying to lose weight, build a business, improve our mental health or anything in between - we can achieve anything we set our minds to, but first we have to get rid of our excuses.

1. I’ll do it tomorrow. Nothing in this life is promised, except death, tomorrow may never come and the task will remain incomplete. The only way to achieve our goals is to start taking action right now.

2. I’m not good enough. Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard, we can improve on the skills we already have by training and practicing. Remember - we all have to start from somewhere.

3. I’m tired. It’s important to listen to our bodies and make time to rest, but we must also keep in mind that our goals will never be achieved if we don’t sacrifice. We may have to give up an hour of sleep to fit in that workout or training session that will bring us closer to achieving our goals.

4. Other people are already doing it. Indeed, there are others who are expressing their gifts and talents to the world - but they’re not us. We each have a unique, individual perspective, gift or talent to offer the world that no one else can. 

5. I’ve already tried. To be successful in anything we need to fail and fail often, from each failure we learn a new lesson that we can use to improve our future attempts. It’s important to keep in mind that the only true failure is giving up.

6. What will others say about me? The opinions of others have nothing to do with us, the only opinion that matters is our own. We are the ones who have to live with the regrets of not trying, the validation of others isn’t worth giving up on our dreams.

7. What if it doesn’t work out? If it comes to the point where giving up feels like the only option - which it rarely ever is - at least we can say we tried. If we try we might fail, if we don’t we guarantee it. 

Excuses sound best to the ones making them.

Peace & positive vibes.

anonymous asked:

fkwkskfkd I never send things to the blogs I follow like this but I kinda need help with a lot of things but what if I want to give up on art? I love drawing but,,,, nothing looks good I'm just getting worse and worse and idk what to do I have no inspiration and nothing comes out as planned dkkfkdkskfnfnakxkfk

Ahh, I’m so glad you reached out! Honestly I seriously love giving advice so I’d be happy to help you out. Every single creator has doubts, even famous illustrators and artists, so I’d be happy to share what I and others have done to help ourselves out. 

Firstly, remember that practice is key. When you’re in an art block or frustrated with art, break the mold and do something that’s a bit different. What I tend to do is draw flowers from reference pictures or go outside and draw a tree or something. Other times, I’ll do thumbnail sketches of compositions like these.

You could do a still life, sketch only the part of a body you’re comfortable with, or do gesture drawings (which intentionally don’t look great). Heck you can even trace art, color someone’s line art, or things like that (obviously don’t share without artist’s permission though)! Looking at art tutorials can be a great source of inspiration too. 

Once you’re a bit more like “okay, I like this even when it doesn’t look great!” then you can start practicing the weaknesses you see in your art. For me, for instance, I tend to go with more stagnant poses and I’m not very good at drawing mouths and intense facial expressions. So I started googling references and just sketching them. When you treat it like a study, there’s less pressure for it to be perfect. You’ll notice some will look better than others but, when you walk away and then have to draw that part again, you’ll notice that it comes to you easier. 

Now, here’s the most important thing to remember when you feel like you’re getting worse. You’re not actually getting worse, you’re becoming more in tune with your art and noticing things you want to improve more. This is progress!! Awesome super fantastic progress! It only seems like you’re getting worse because you’re noticing the areas you want to improve more. So, all you have to do is start practicing those areas. 

While you’re doing this, celebrate how much more aware of the awkward anatomy and compositional errors and weird things you are. This is the best guide towards becoming a better artist–to be critical of your own work. But, to make sure you don’t knock yourself down with self-criticism, remember to be compassionate and honor what that teaching voice is sharing with you. Work together to become a better artist, to learn and grow. 

Lastly, remember that all of your favorite artists started somewhere and gosh did we start somewhere horrible lol. We all doubted our work (I still get frustrated sometimes!) and felt like we’d never be on par with our favorite artists. But we kept working–both on improving our artistic confidence and skills. 

So long as you keep trying, you’ll make it to where you want to be. That’s the only thing you need. 

For bonuses (lol) let me show you some of my old art compared to my newer stuff so you can see how bad I used to be (and most of these art was after about 5 years of study anyways!!).  

That piece is from seven years ago, so it took me seven years of doing art most days of the week to get to this sort of work: 

Now here’s a super old watercolor (from late 2011). It’s muddied and the composition is poor and it’s generally not a good piece looking back. 

About six years later, though, this old watercolor was transformed into pieces like this!

How I got here was practice. I kept trying. I notice what I wanted to work on, what parts about my art bugged me, and I studied them. Slowly but surely I improved. And you, lovely anon, you will too. 

Help me fundraise for a service dog? I only need another $333 to reach the halfway mark! <3

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.

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
