If this ask was of a purely technical nature, the answer is that I vary, depending on what kind of picture it is. I’m not very impressed by the eyes I usually make; they mostly seem to consist of five lines or so. 

The thought process for them is more important to me. That way I can at least try to get a good variation and give each character their own snowflake look. Above is a very boiled down version of what goes on in my mind when I draw the eyes. I’m more sure about some characters than others…

(Yes, that’s me)

People with speech impediments:

If someone laughs at how you speak, your voice is not the problem.

If someone finishes your sentences, your voice is not the problem.

If someone can’t be bothered to pay attention to what you’re saying, your voice is not the problem.

If someone refuses to look at you because of the way you speak, your voice is not the problem.

If someone excludes you to speed up conversation, your voice is not the problem.

If someone tells you that you should change how you speak, your voice is not the problem.

They are. 

If you want to tell them as much, you can.

But whether you want to confront them or not, just remember that none of these reactions make your speech bad or wrong. Some people just suck at knowing how to be respectful. And that’s a problem with them, not with your voice.

“Meeting At Work” AUs
  • “I work at a department store and when I was closing the bedding section, I found you sleeping in the display bed. How long have you been in there?” AU
  • “Every Friday, I ring up your groceries consisting of a pack of RedBull, pantyhose, and turnips. This time, I’ve gotta ask what they’re for” AU
  • “Hey, you tattooed a name on my drunken ass last night and I want to know if you remember whose it is? Oh shit, it’s yours???” AU
  • “The first few times you’ve called my taxi company drunk for a ride home, I was the closest available taxi. But now I know your drinking habits, so same time next Saturday? 4 AM? Great.” AU

  • “We both work at different fast food restaurants in the mall food court so let’s trade: a burrito from your place for a slice of pizza from mine?” AU
  • “Listen, I found these kittens abandoned and they’re not old enough to be on their own yet so I had to bring them to work with me, but management can’t know, so we have to keep them moving them to different cubicles so no one finds out” AU
  • “My coworker and I always make up backstories for people in the diner, but I could never figure yours out, so care to tell me the real story?” AU

I put some greys and emoticons on my lunch sketches from this week. Didn’t have the energy to do anything more exiting than faces.
