it came out kinda pretty

I’m really loving the theme lately with big budget film and TV projects in the ‘nerds and nostalgia’ genre having White Male Entitlement as the villain

like

Mad Max asked who killed the world

their answer was 'toxic masculinity’

Jessica Jones answered with 'rape culture’

and Star Wars threw in 'entitled, privileged white dudes with nostalgiaboners for eras of extreme oppression for everyone else’

could we ask for a more accurate unholy trinity, or a better group to be putting this shit on blast??

I saw Rebecca’s latest sketch and instantly knew what I had to do

This is what happens if you let me listen to “Shut up and dance” on repeat for at least 4 hours straight

here have some trans boy hunk headcanons bc i have a need for trans hunk:

  • he went through a “no dresses/i hate pink” phase when he was still questioning in middle school and practically refused to wear anything but baggy “male” clothes because he knew dressing “feminine” made him uncomfortable but he wasn’t sure why
  • he chopped his own hair short with a pair of kitchen scissors when he was in seventh grade. his moms nearly had a heart attack when they saw his uneven bangs and rushed him to a hairstylist right away. he didn’t necessarily get the haircut he wanted after that, due to the hairstylist making the adjustments look too “feminine” for his tastes but hunk was also just happy that his hair was now short.
  • before he was out a lot of people already believed he was a guy due to his broad shoulders, height, and the way he dressed. he always got a rush of happiness every time someone called him “he” or “sir”.
  • when he finally came out, both his moms cried because they were happy he discovered who he was, and they started looking up resources for parents of trans kids right away. they would have taken him clothes shopping too, but most of his clothes were already from the “male” section.
  • hunk frankly hates binding???? half the time he feels like he can’t breathe while he wears one, and he honestly really really hates under-boob sweat. he still wears one due to dysphoria reasons, but really can’t wait until he can afford top surgery. 
  • he chose the name “hunk” off a childhood nickname his moms had for him. he doesn’t remember why they called him “hunk” but he knows he always thought it of as his “male” name when back when he didn’t identify as male.
  • he was diagnosed with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) when he was fourteen and was actually kinda excited because one symptom is the ability to grow facial hair. of course, he really didn’t like some of the other symptoms (acne, hormone imbalances, inability to lose weight) but he felt as though it was kinda worth it if he could grow a beard without even being on T yet.
  • he started T a little after his fifteenth birthday. he and his moms cried when he got his first shot.
  • he was still on T when he and the crew got thrown into the whole voltron business, he started to panic due to the fact he couldn’t get his hormones in space. however, after a quick talk with allura and coran, he soon discovered that alteans had their own version of HRT and was able to get his own version of space T.
  • when he and lance were first roommates at the garrison, lance would always call hunk “pretty” as a compliment because he loves his friends and wants them to know what he thinks of them (because hunk is pretty, fight me). however, when hunk finally came out to him and expressed that being called “pretty” made him kinda dysphoric at time, lance immediately switched to “handsome” or “good looking”. 
  • overtime, hunk came to love traditionally “feminine” things again. he let his hair grow out slightly longer, embraced the color pink, and even started wearing dresses when he felt up to it. he knew he was male, and so did all the people that matter, so enjoying more “feminine” things no longer had a dysphoric effect on him. (and eventually, he let lance start calling him “pretty” again, because he realized boys could be pretty darn pretty too.)

My favorite little killer, Arya, really stepped up her game this latest episode of Game of Bones and I feel the need to celebrate it with some art. 

Also sorry I haven’t posted in a week, been busy with a secret project. 

For Day 7 of FFIX Week! Happy 15th Anniversary, Final Fantasy IX!

FFIX was the very first game I played to completion. To this day, it’s still my favourite game and I always enjoy coming back to it. I love the party, the support characters, the NPCs, the music, the story, there’s just so much I love about this game. I’m very grateful I came across FFIX in my childhood.

Today’s repaint. This one took me aaaages to do– I kept stopping, walking away from the project, and then coming back to it. I just wasn’t sure how I wanted her to look! (Note: If you look verrrry closely, you can see that her irises are a gradient from one shade of purple to another– from plum to lilac. Kinda proud of that.)

I think she came out pretty cute, but I’m still not 100% satisfied.

SUPER MODEL DOCUMENTARY HOUR! Lol

Sometimes my confidence in my physical appearance falls pretty low. Sometimes it puts me in a very negative place. One thing I’ve done that helps is to take out the clothes in my closet, and try them on. Basically, my own mini-fashion show. It basically reminds me of three things…one, to have confidence in myself, atwo, to remember that I am better than I was yesterday, and three, the only opinion that really matters about me, is me. 😁👍🏾💯

On another note, I saw this bandana idea on Pinterest and was dying to try it out. I think it came out looking pretty good. I was kinda nervous when I walked out the door, but that obviously passed pretty quickly. 😁👍🏾

Feeling the love~

AHHHH i finally finished it and my brain feels dead along with my hands X’D

Alrighty so this is what I was working on this was a update/project kinda deal and I think it came out pretty well. Im still super sour with myself for not making the top two Angus’ color schemes identical but i tried and with a lot of edits.

Also i lost the progress for the no glasses versions for the top two so please don’t hurt me I feel so bad for that xD

I had this unfinished sketch of my Darth Little Bitch Selim so I kinda cleaned it up and it actually came out pretty cool? I wanted to make someting that has a screenshot-y feel like it was taken from a movie or smth and it would up a lot closer to that than I expected.

Also modified Selim’s outfit a bit. I like shoulders and slutty looking Sith boys. So next outfit update will probablu be booty shorts or something
