I love Demon Queen Natalie by @hippywhippy so - damn - much. If I could spend the whole day just drawing the whole fic I would.

anonymous asked:

like the entire process

okay so if you’re looking for more ~artsy process~ type stuff have a stalk of my answered asks bc i’ve done a few detailed posts about that. as for the whole logistical process it varies depending on what i’m doing ? but generally i …

  • have an idea
  • find the materials i want to use
  • cut and stick and scribble and do whatever until it looks good
  • clean my scanner
  • scan it at 600dpi
  • clean my scanner again
  • edit it in photoshop (slightly change the levels and sometimes the colour)
  • save as a jpeg (make one copy less than 10mb for tumblr and then another super high quality if i’m posting it on society6)
  • if i want to post it on instagram at some point i’ll make a square version and email that to myself so i can get it on my phone
  • upload to tumblr, try and write a caption (the most difficult part) and save in my drafts
  • go through my drafts, write some hilarious and charming tags no one cares about (probably about bear grylls or cats), and add some new stuff to my queue (i have stuff in my queue from at least a year ago bc i keep making stuff i like more and pushing that to the bottom … awful)
  • (if it’s going on society6) head back to photoshop and try and fit the art on all the different products (not at all fun)
  • upload those to society6
  • make sure i save stuff to my external hard drive otherwise there could be very big regrets

if this isn’t the answer you were looking for hmu again i’m here all night watching parks and rec ! what’s new

The unsung heroes: James Finlayson

James Henderson “Jimmy” Finlayson (27 August 1887 – 9 October 1953) was a Scottish actor who worked in both silent and sound comedies. Bald, with a fake moustache, Finlayson had many trademark comic mannerisms and is famous for his squinting, outraged, “double take and fade away” head reaction, and characteristic expression “d'ooooooh”, and as the most famous comic foil of Laurel and Hardy.

Born in Larbert, Stirlingshire, Scotland […], he worked as a tinsmith before pursuing an acting career. […] he emigrated to the U.S. in 1911 at the age of 24 […] and became a U.S. citizen in 1920.

As part of John Clyde’s company, he played the part of Jamie Ratcliffe in Jeanie Deans at the Theatre Royal in Edinburgh in 1910. […]
Arriving in Los Angeles in 1916, he found work at L-KO and Thomas Ince’s studio. He starred in numerous Mack Sennett-produced comedies, most notably as one of the original Keystone Kops.

The promotional newspaper article for the 1920 premiere of Sennett’s Down on the Farm, refers to Finlayson as “legitimate and screen player of international celebrity” and of his performance says: “The villian [sic] in the case - a sort of cross between a Turkish Don Juan and a ‘loan shark’ - is played with rare power and comic results of seriousness by James Finlayson”.

As a freelance actor late in his career, he made some of his final films in the UK. He played bit parts in films like Foreign Correspondent, To Be or Not to Be, and Royal Wedding, his last film before his death in 1953.

However, Finlayson is most remembered for his work at the Hal Roach Studios. In the mid-1920s, Roach attempted to make a top-billed star out of Finlayson, but the effort was unfocused and he never caught on. The next step came in 1927 when the All-Star Comedy series gave Finlayson equal billing with up-and-coming co-stars Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, comedienne Edna Marion, and others; some studio publicity even referred to Finlayson, Hardy and Laurel as a “famous comedy trio.”

But Roach staff producer and future multi-Oscared director Leo McCarey recognized the great potential of a Laurel-and-Hardy pairing and began developing their characters and expanding their roles toward that end; by the autumn of 1928, Laurel and Hardy was a formal studio series with its own production prefixes while the All-Star Comedy series – and Finlayson’s equal co-billing – were things of the past. Yet so memorable an antagonist was he to “The Boys” that even with his diminished billing, he was still “considered by many to be an indispensable part of the Laurel & Hardy team.”

Altogether, Finlayson played roles in 33 Laurel and Hardy films, usually as a villain or an antagonist, notably in the celebrated films Big Business (1929) and Way Out West (1937). He also starred alongside Stan Laurel in 19 films and opposite Oliver Hardy in five films before Laurel and Hardy were teamed together. He appeared in dozens of Roach Studio films, with Charley Chase, Glenn Tryon, Snub Pollard, and Ben Turpin. He was also in several Our Gang shorts, notably Mush and Milk, in which he and Spanky McFarland match wits in a comically adversarial phone conversation. […]
One of Finlayson’s trademarks was a drawn out "dohhhhhhh!”. Finlayson had used the term as a minced oath to stand in for the word “Damn!” This would later inspire Dan Castellaneta, the voice actor of Homer Simpson.

During the voice recording session for a Tracey Ullman Show short, Castellaneta was required to utter what was written in the script as an “annoyed grunt”. He rendered it as a drawn out “dohhhhhhh”. This was inspired by Finlayson. Matt Groening felt that it would better suit the timing of animation if it were spoken faster. Castellaneta then shortened it to a quickly uttered “D'oh!”
He also partly inspired the character Groundskeeper Willie who is also voiced by Castellaneta.
