And I look over and Elizabeth is just shivering, drenched, head to toe in this beautiful gown, and Chloe is right next to her, bent over just laughing hysterical. No sympathy whatsoever [x]

Renae De Liz: Collection of a discussion over several tweets about drawing women: 

Q: As an artist, what can I consider if I want to de-objectify & add power to female characters? Tips in this thread

1 Left: A common expression in comics. Eyes are lidded, mouth is pouty. It’s look to promote a sense of sexiness & lessens personality.

1 Right: Personality & Uniqueness first. Think of distinct facial features outside the usual. Promote thought in eyes. Whats she thinking of

2(L): Commonly taught way to draw breasts (OR fully separated/circles/sticking out). Intent to highlight sex appeal, not realistic for hero

2®: Whats REALISTIC for your hero? Athletes need major support (i.e sports bra) which have a diff. look. Consider not ALL heroes have DD’s

ANOTHER NOTE ON BREASTS: If your hero has a zippered top, DON’T unzip it! Breasts can easily fall out during hero work, which would be silly

3: Arms are closer to supermodel size on the left. What best fits your hero? If she’s strong, she'l likely very built. Give her muscles!

4: Hands on left are set in a way to promote the sense of softness, it lessens her power. Be sure hands are set in a way to promote strength

5(L) It’s common to see “the arch n’ twist” in comics. A female arched & twisted to show both cheeks AND both boobs.

5®: Twists in the body are a powerful art tool but stick to what can realistically be done, and use arches w/o intent for “boob/butt perk”

6: One on left feels like she’s posing. Right feels like she’s standing heroically. Make her overall pose functional vs. sexually appealing

7: Heels! Modern heels are generally used to amplify stance & increase visual appeal. I like them, but if I were a hero, not too realistic->

7 (cont.) Most important is what would your character choose? It’s very difficult to hero around in stilletos. Perhaps consider low/no heels

Chose Power Girl (W/ boob window) b/c shes often objectified & show even she can be drawn differently if an artist considers certain things

Intent is to help those who WANT to promote change in their work (which can be challenging). Not shaming those who choose otherwise.

Drawing women sexy is an automatic response to many artists. Done w/o thought. I was like that for many years until I recognized it

If you choose to draw women sexy, that’s fine! Discussing alternatives and recognizing patterns should not threaten you.

I just touched the tip of the iceberg with this. If you have your own advice, please share it! :)

The Blacklist Rewatch: Berlin

OK SHIRO FUCKING SLOW YOUR ROLL

YOU WANT KEITH TO LEAD VOLTRON IF YOU DON’T MAKE IT?

THAT IS

SUCH A BAD CHOICE HONESTLY?

HE DOESN’T LISTEN TO ANYBODY, JUST GOES OFF TO DO HIS OWN THING

PLS

YOU KNOW WHO WOULD MAKE AN EXCELLENT VOLTRON LEADER?

HUNK

HE’S SMART, A GREAT TEAMMATE, DOESN’T GET DISTRACTED BY THE PROSPECT OF FAMILY (PIDGE), DOESN’T GO OFF ALONE (KEITH), AND DOESN’T GOOF OFF (LANCE)

LIKE P L E A S E

I love them all, okay, I really do. But Keith would not be a good leader for Voltron.

Sure, yes, Hunk may want to run away from things sometimes, but he doesn’t. Shay helped teach him what paladins really do, how important they are.

Ashleigh Walker is in love. You know the feeling - that intense, heart-racing, all-consuming emotion that can only come with first love. It’s enough to stop her worrying about bad grades at college. Enough to distract her from her parents’ marriage troubles. There’s just one thing bothering her… Shouldn’t it be her boyfriend, Dylan, who makes her feel this way - not Miss Murray, her English teacher? 

 This Young Adult, LGBT coming-of-age story tackles a number of issues that modern youth have to deal with, namely parental divorce, relationships and, most poignantly, coming out. I wish that I could have read this book when I was younger, because Ash, the protagonist, reminded me so much of my younger self.

At first, I found the book to be slightly juvenile, possibly because I haven’t read any YA fiction for a while. Initially, its style reminded me a lot of Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging, which I was obsessed with when I was younger, and this obviously did not appeal to me as much now, as it did then. However, after sticking with it, I really found myself becoming engrossed by the story. It is not only funny but it deals sensitively with adult themes, which I found refreshing.  

I found myself laughing at the fact that I used to (and perhaps, to some degree, still do) think in exactly the same way as Ash, as the book vividly portrays young people today, and perhaps this is a part of the reason that I found most of the characters to be so relatable.

I particularly enjoyed the fact that this book exhibits a wide variety of responses to Ash’s coming out, as I am sure that anybody who has dealt with a similar situation will identify with at least one, if not all, of the reactions from her friends and family.

Naturally, I would recommend this book to anybody who loves YA fiction, but especially to those between the ages of 15 and 18. I am also sure that most LGBT people will be able to relate to Ash’s experience in one way or another, and I believe this book could serve as a useful introduction to the struggles – and triumphs – of LGBT youths, for both them and their family and friends!

Orbán a háború borzalmai elől menekülők ellen hergel gazdasági bevándorlóknak hazudva őket, miközben a valódi gazdasági bevándorlóknak 5800 letelepedési kötvényt adott el eddig. Ne dőlj be a Fidesznek, tudod, hogy mindig átvernek!
