it should have more but i'm so lazy and tired

chasingstarlightz  asked:

I have the opposite problem of a previous question asked where instead of trying everything to improve--I can't bring myself to draw (digitally/traditionally) unless it's for an assignment in college or if I'm bored at work and it's usually because i'm really tired or exhausted or I'm lazy--if there any way to combat that? Maybe I should go outside more? I do want to be a storyboard artist one day and I'm scared I'm not doing enough--I don't have a lot of stuff to show in terms of art.

Oof, Meg here and, oh wow, I can relate to this so hard. That’s exactly how I felt in college, I only ever drew really for classes. I think everyone fights this off in their own way, but for me I started being really vocal to my friends/family/ect that I was going to draw something or work on a project and that like mentally motivated me to do things because now other people were expecting me to do it? That’s obviously not something that can work for everyone haha. I also tried to surround myself with people leagues above me in motivation/work ethic both online and off because they would rub off on me and get me pumped to draw. Also when I was feeling lazy, I’d change into my comfy clothes, cuddle up in a quilt with some coffee/hot choco, put on a movie and then just chill out while I doodled. That made it feel less like work and more relaxing! I know it’s tough, I’m sorry! I wish you the best of luck!

prince!akaashi and knight!bokuto bokuaka headcanons that are absolutely 100% @librebananr‘s fault because of her gorgeous art here and her headcanons here

part 1 | part two to be added   

  • The saying Bokuto Koutarou grew up with was “If the Bokutos could have been born poorer, they would have been" and it was always met with a round of uproarious laughter that makes his heart sink. He finds no amusement in his starvation, the withering away of his mother and father as they work and work and work. How his siblings are constantly filthy, constantly sallow and horribly thin, constantly just one step away from doing something desperate. Something ravenous.
  • It wasn’t always this way. Once the house of Bokuto was noble. Riches and property and a good name– It was all lost because of some long lost ancestor, who drank and gambled away their riches. Leaving the family with nothing.
  • Still, this story of once-had glory gives Koutarou hope. He convinces himself that if honor and power can be lost, then surely it can be won too. And he’ll be damned if he doesn’t find a way to do it.
  • Koutarou and his family now works in the home that should have been his. An ornate, decorative mansion just next to the royal palace. The proximity alone means Koutarou is a frequent at the royal palace– and attends all of the royal ceremonies common people are allowed in.
  • He’s eight years old when he first sees the prince and his whole life changes forever

anonymous asked:

can you give me some examples of pine being an intelligent guy? it just really gets me going that he is like that sometimes lmao

Oh man, there’s a plethora of examples to choose from here! I personally find his intellect quite obvious; he’s very self-deprecating and funny, which is a sign of intelligence in my book, and overall just has some insightful and (for want of a better word) deep stuff to say about a number of topics. Some ‘evidence’:

There’s heaps more though. Just read, watch, or listen to any decent interview with him, and you’ll notice. Some particular favourites that spring to mind are his Off Camera conversation with Sam Jones, the way he turns a derogatory, stupid question into a really interesting point about our culture’s obsession with tropes and romance:

…. and how super pleased he is about being the Mr. Wonder Woman with 0 powers, and how basically women > men:

And finally, let’s hear it from Zachary Quinto:

“I remember feeling, as I got to know Chris more, so impressed by his intelligence, which isn’t always the case with such a traditional leading man,” Quinto said. “I remember being pleasantly, not surprised, but …”

“You thought I was just a dumb blond,” Pine interrupted. “Actually, I have many more Spockian qualities than I do Kirkian qualities. We were two peas in a pod,” he said of Quinto, “in that we think about things way more than we should. We analyze.”
