Something that helps a lot when you draw is to learn to see and understand the subject. Draw what you see and understand how it works. How does an arm work, how does the muscles move in different motions? How does it bend? How does the trees near you look compared to the trees further away.
You don’t need to focus on it completely but try to have it in the back of your head <3
cool things about learning languages
- I can finally understand what my family/relatives are saying at family gatherings and speak back in the same language
- new skill
- can call friends things like “dirty microwave” and they won’t know what I’m saying
Until Picarto gets fixed with the bugs of loading and crashing this month, I’m gonna switch to twitch (heh that rhymed). And also looking forward to learn flash and camera movement. I did look up tutorials but it was just.. confusing.. and got frustrated.. I’m rather a slow computer at first but I do pick things up quickly once I get used to it. But I’d rather have a one on one experience so it’s easier to work with and ask questions if anything and thank heavens to my wonderful amigo will help me out ^^ Though she’s still on vacation so it’s questionable if she has time and I respect that she’s busy but we shall see. :)

I think you know what this will provoke. I think you know how dangerous the consequences promise to be, and I think you knew that before you took up the knife. I think I know why you did it, and I don’t think it had anything to do with him or with her or with gold. I think it had to do with something entirely different and I understand. So I will not let those consequences touch you.
If I’m being honest, Pidge is the hardest to sort in a Harry Potter au because like… she’s got two driving forces.
I usually sort Pidge into Ravenclaw because, assuming she went to Hogwarts as an 11yo Katie Holt, there is no doubt in my mind that she valued the pursuit of knowledge above all else back then. Like, she’s always been a prodigy hacker. And she’s the Green Paladin for the reason- she’s inquisitive, she has this burning inch to learn and touch and understand. Katie doesn’t want to just touch the stars; she wants to download them, in any way she can.
But Pidge Gunderson is a Slytherin. Pidge lies her way into government agencies, lies to her friends until she knows she can trust them, creates plans and backup plans and backup backup plans for everything because everything can go wrong. Everything has gone wrong for her. She’s cunning, and infiltrates, and is above all loyal. Her commitment to her family almost outstripped her duty to Voltron. But as a Slytherin, she was able to see her role in the larger picture… and that same dedication kept her on the team.
When I think about Pidge, I call her Pidge Holt in my mind. Because she’s no longer Katie… but her family name is Holt, not Gunderson. You can’t have one part without the other. They’re intertwined, you know? Ultimately, I decided that Pidge was a Ravenclaw just to spread out all five Paladins across the four houses, lmao.
One thing I learned through all of this is that you gotta love yourself. When you love yourself, you don’t rely on anybody for love. And when you don’t rely on anybody else for love and you just appreciate their love as an additive, as a bonus to your life, then you’re powerful. You got the power to do anything; can’t nothing really hurt you or faze you. It may rough you up a little bit but you’re gonna keep it moving. That’s what my mom taught me. She taught me how to take care of myself.
Why are you so in love with science? (not meant in a bad way, I'm just curious)
I guess it’s because science just sort of makes sense to me, on a fundamental level.
The processes of science and scientific analysis are very in line with how I see the world and how I think. I’ve always been a very sort of analytic thinker. Like I was the kid who always had to know why and was always questioning everything and always tries to explain everything (to the point that I was, at time, a very obnoxious child).
I like facts. I like seeing how things fit together. I like sorting through things and finding the bigger picture and then seeing how the individual details slot into it.
It’s how I make sense of the world I guess. Trying to find an explanation for things I don’t understand. It’s why I was never good at being religious but am fascinated by the history of religion and how it creates and is created by society.
And it goes beyond the purely natural and physical sciences. I feel similarly about the social sciences and history and anything that relies on critical analysis.
On a fundamental level I want to know why. And science, at it’s core, is an attempt to answer that question.
