yo, wheres the lore bible if you dont mind me asking? Did I miss it???
Um, i’m using someone’s account to read it on amazon kindle but i know it’s on amazon right now. I’m not sure if George wanted us to know though, one of his friends posted a pic of it on insta but she just took that pic down so I’m not sure if he was ready to promo it yet.
Okay it really really bugs me antis get man at Killing stalking for be “homophobic and abusive” but yet I never see not one bring up Hannibal. NBC Hannibal he did some messed up stuff to Will, Sangwoo done/still doing messed up stuff to Bum, both are serial killers too. So let’s compare shall we ( please not both in the wrong one is not better than the other it’s bad all around)
Took advantage of Will when he was sleep walking’
Forced feed him a human ear ( mind you while Will was ‘sleep walking’
Killed Abigail ( which was like daughter to Will) in front of him
Stabbed Will right after
Got Will into prison
Literally tried to eat Will’s brain
Heck Will attempted to get Hannibal killed cause he disliked Hannibal so much ( Season 2) Hannibal and Will’s relationship is toxic to sum up now lets go to Sangwoo
Broke Bum’s legs with a sledgehammer
cut bum’s neck, many times actually ( during different chapters)
Literally hung Bum
Drowned Bum. TWICE
Forced Bum to kill a man
Verbally, physically, and emotionally abuses Bum ( especially when Bum rejected him)
Again both of these are terrible i’m not going to even try and say one has it or does it worse. Point I’m trying to get at is if you gonna claim something is ___ don’t just pick and choose what is/isn’t ____. Go after ALL of it cause as of not saying KS is bad is really just throwing around buzzwords to project your dislike for it. I don’t care if you hate it fine leave others alone and out of it. If you say Ks fans need to die/choke/ etc even ignore half are survivors and gay/bi men that like it. Also if you Hannibal/hannigram fan yet anti ks saying it’s homophobic and abusive you are a hypocrite.
Tbh i think because KS is from and set in South Korea creator and hannbial is western most antis are from US/Europe i think they just trying to “be offended cause it’s in another country”
How do you get inspired? I'm asking you because you seem like an inspired artist
Inspiration is an illusion
Real answer, at no point in my day do I feel inspired, and yet here i am making art. The more you progress with your art the more you realise that feeling really inspired to create something specific is very rare, and it doesn’t necessarily lead to better artwork. In short the trick is to create without feeling “inspired”, but it’s not a very good answer so I’m going to elaborate ahead. This is super long, but I feel like you deserve a serious answer.
1. Step one: get a sketchbook
You’re going to want a place to generate ideas in. Get a sketchbook, it doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive (and for what I’m about to suggest I think it’s actually better to get a cheaper one), ditch the loose sheets flying around your room, keep them for finished illustrations (but we’re not there yet). Aside from keeping all your drawings organized together (thus preventing you from losing your drawings), a sketchbook is fun to flip through.
I’ve had these two for this purpose and was very pleased with both (yeah, they’ve got scribbles all over them. don’t worry about it) the good thing about them is that they’re relatively cheap, but the paper is still of a decent quality. They have lots of pages,so you’re not as afraid to “waste” them.
2. Step two: Scribble in it, a TON
Keep doodling and scribbling all over it, keep throwing ideas at the paper to see what sticks, even if it’s a shitty idea. Don’t be afraid of “wasting paper”, that’s why you bought a cheaper sketchbook. It doesn’t need to look pretty, a sketchbook is for learning and brainstorming. Looking and my art blog (and most artists’ honestly) you see mostly finished illustrations, so it’s easy to think that I just come up with an idea and then finish it. But in reality what I upload is a fraction of what I draw. My sketchbook is FULL of sketches that nothing came out of. Fill an entire page with doodles of hamsters, or landscapes, or even instagram models. It doesn’t matter, keep drawing.
Here are some examples of pages I did not upload.
3. Step three: don’t worry about it
About six months ago I was looking to get into art school, and of course to pass the exams I needed to present a portfolio. At the time I’ve been drawing in sketchbooks nearly exclusively for over two years, so I had very few illustrations to show. So I had about a month to build a stronger portfolio, and naturally I decided to make more, and more “inspired” ones. Let me tell you I have never produced more artworks I hated than I did then. Not even a single one was included in my portfolio. And of course after I had already presented and the pressure to create good artwork was off I finally was able to create more things I liked (I did get in to art school, so no need to worry). Point of the story is that you’re a better artist when you don’t put yourself under the pressure of constantly being good, so don’t worry about it (specially if you’re not a professional).
4. Step four: keep throwing shit at the wall and eventually something will stick
Ideas are like an avalanche. They can just stand there for ages if you’re not doing anything with them until they eventually melt and disappear. But it also means that it takes just a small push to bring all of them down. What you initially thought was a bad idea might lead you to a different better idea, and that one might lead you to another idea, and it would lead you to two more. Keep the momentum going until sometime in the future when you find and idea you’d like to turn to a finished painting. I am not the best example (because I don’t draw as much as I should), but even then there are times when I can seat for days and not draw a single thing, and then all of a sudden one sketch leads me to burn through 5 pages of my sketchbook in an hour. It took me 7 sketchbook pages from initial concept to final design when I was coming up with Major Tom, all done on the same day. And I drew even more characters that day that I haven’t uploaded.
5. Not exactly a step five: don’t neglect your technique
That’s a piece of advice I wish teenage me hadn’t ignored. Your technical skills are the tools you use to create. The better you skill are the more ideas you can execute. that means drawing the boring shit, like hands, perspective, still life etc. I started out like a lot of artists, drawing mainly anime, avoiding drawing hands, or any perspective to speak of. My art today suffers because of it. I’m 22 and still struggle with drawing proper hands, my perspective is off at best. Learn from my mistakes, it’s ok to draw the fun stuff, but also draw the important boring stuff. (Disclaimer: this is a lesson I haven’t quite finished learning myself)
6. Step six: don’t limit yourself to one style
Beware the trap of “that’s my style”, beside limiting you in skill, committing to a style when you’re still young will limit you in what you can draw. Again, when I was younger I drew nearly exclusively anime. That meant I was very limited in what I could draw, and worse - I was getting sick of it. By the time I graduated highschool I couldn’t stand the idea of making another single anime drawing. i was going through a small art crisis, since all of a sudden I didn’t have a set style anymore. At that time I tried a bunch of different styles from realism, to american cartoon, and for a short time even french catoon. Today I draw in a fairly realistic style, leaning towards more or less cartoon depending on the specific subject. The best style is having no style. Your art will always have your touch to it, it’s something you can’t escape. Make the style work for you, not the other way. When in doubt look to Picasso. This guy exchanged styles like socks and he’s one of the greatest artists of our time, and even though his artworks are sometimes completely different from each other they are all still undoubtedly Picasso.
This answer ended up being super long because most artists online would reply to this question with something along the lines of “look for things that inspire you!” which I think is a cop out answer and it completely misses the point (sorry basically every youtube artist), it’s an important question that deserves better. You’re asking for advice to get inspired because things don’t inspire you, thats the whole problem. I also think this isn’t a very good advice in general, I feel really inspired maybe four times a year, and yet I created more than four artworks. Don’t sit around looking for inspiration because it won’t come. Draw without “inspiration”, you don’t need her anyway.
FOR CLARIFICATION (SORRY I HAVENT STOPPED YELLING ABOUT CH 22 YET) THE PRELUDE AND 22 TAKE PART EXACTLY 1 YEAR APART RIGHT???? IM SORRY IM LIKE KAGEHINA DUMB?!?
Hahahaha omg no no anon you aren’t dumb at ALL
The prelude and 22 don’t happen one year apart; actually, in the story, with the jumping around in the time line, the story spans June 2017 to January 2018. if you remember, there was a 4 month flashback following the opening chapter.
So the prelude happens on September 23rd 2017. NOW, in the story, in chapter 22, we are like in the first week of January 2018. So the time between the prelude, when Hinata actually tries to kiss Kageyama in the middle of the gym, and NOW in the story, it’s been about 3 and a half months.
YESTERDAY, in REAL LIFE, it was September 23rd, 2017. Which was hella symbolic to me :DD and I desperately tried to coordinate chapter 22 with that date specifically.
Does my explanation make sense!?? Please let me know if it doesn’t! I’m absolute shit at explaining myself sometimes, especially when I’m excited about something. THANK YOU SO MUCH for asking me to clarify!!!
I’m sure there’s like three or four people who have been watching my tumblr all day, waiting for this news. If not, then oh well…
So I have a few things of news:
The first one is #michaelveyswitcheroo2k17. It might actually happen. RPE said that they haven’t found a production company yet. But what about the trailer? That was made on a really small budget, so I think they might end up making another trailer later, once they have more of a budget, and more actors. I don’t know this for sure, so don’t hate me if it doesn’t happen.
RPE was offered one million dollars to write an eighth book, but he turned it down. He compared it to a marathon. Imagine you have just run a marathon, and someone says to you, “I’ll pay you a million dollars to run another marathon.” You wouldn’t be able to. You’re legs would give out. So basically, he might’ve, but he doesn’t have the mental capacity to do it right now.
On that note, RPE said that while he’s not sure if he will, he is thinking of writing a spin off series.
That’s all I can think of right now, but when I can, I’ll reblog it onto this.
Well, this it it. Tonight, the last ever episode of Teen Wolf is going to air and I honestly don’t think it’s hit me yet. This will be one of my last posts where Teen Wolf is still on the air. I swore I wasn’t gonna be cheesy, but I’m gonna write this post just so I can look back on it long after tonight’s finale.
I’ve been watching this show since its humble beginnings in 2011. I was 13 years old when it started, and now I am freaking 19! Not only has this show and its cast members grown all these years, but I have too. To go through some of the most crucial years of my life with Teen Wolf by my side has been a truly amazing experience. I started out watching the episodes in my parents bedroom and now I’m watching them in my own apartment.
I can pick out so many specific memories from my teen years that involve my obsession with Teen Wolf. I remember sitting in the basement of my best friend’s house, watching “Night School” with her when it aired. I remember looking up all the music from the early episodes because they were so good. I remember Stiles and Lydia kissing for the very first time and freaking out in the lunchroom at school. I remember my sad attempts at making Stydia fan videos on my iPod. I remember laying in my bed after each episode wondering what Void Stiles or the Dread Doctors were going to do next and coming up with crazy plot lines in my head. I remember freaking out over every little trailer and teaser. And I remember sitting in my college dorm room watching Stiles be rescued in season six and knowing everything was really coming to an end soon.
Now I sit here in my Stilinski lacrosse sweatshirt, holding back tears but also feeling so thankful that Teen Wolf has given me a fandom, a family, and a way to escape. I don’t know what I would have done without this show, honestly. I’ve learned so many lessons and have had so much fun despite the crazy storylines of the show and the excruciating slow burn of Stydia (lol!). Six years has felt like forever, because Teen Wolf has always been a constant in my life. BUT! Even though this is the end of any new episodes, this isn’t the end of Teen Wolf! This show has made history, and we are one of the biggest fandoms on Tumblr. I am going to rewatch this show more times than I can count and my blog is gonna be Teen Wolf still for a long long time. Sorry not sorry?
With that, I will raise an imaginary toast to Teen Wolf, to Stydia, to our fearless alpha Scott McCall, all the crazy villains, love stories, deaths, happy moments. It’s been a wild ride, but we all stuck it through to the end and that’s what matters! I love you all, my fellow TW fans. Let’s enjoy one last hoorah. Teen Wolf forever!
It occurred to me that I have not done one of these in awhile, but there are quite a few new folks around these parts, so I thought I would just say a big WELCOME to you all!
This blog is mostly Dragon Age, some Mass Effect, and a bunch of cute animals and the occasional random postings. I am fairly terrifying, and I have a very dry sense of humor, and my inbox is always open. I’m also fortunate in that I have not had to turn off anon yet. :)
My OCs are Cataline Cousland, Ravenna Hawke, and Theadosia Trevelyan. My OTPs are Cat x Nathaniel, Ven x Anders, and Thea x Loghain.
The current fic (published on Saturdays and Wednesdays) is Songs Forgotten and Remembered and is Cat x Nathaniel. The next fic on deck is Where Lightning Strikes the Sea and features Thea x Loghain. I will be opening up one shot prompts in a few weeks just before the end of Songs and before we jump into Lightning. :) I also currently have a five (or possibly six) part canon fic I’m roughly half way through.
Other than that… I’m a full on crazy cat person and I do occasionally post pictures of the girls. I love hearing about your characters and projects, or answering questions about mine, so feel free to drop me a line.
Well hello there! I'm just only a follower of yours and I'm just wanna say you're a cool artist and a great person!! When you post something on my dash It makes feel so happy! :D i hope someday we can chat :3
*I’M LATERALLY DYING ON MY BED. SEND HELP* oh god thank you so much???? ;_; 💚
You’re all too nice, it might kill me one day. Yet it would be the best death I could wish for.
Also, you can chat with me anytime B)c Only not when timezone is a bitch, and it’s too late for me to be on the internet OwO"
Hey guys. Sorry I haven’t posted the one shot yet. I was working on it, then got to the point where I was doing more staring at the screen not knowing what to write than I was writing. So I switched back to working on chapter 35 and no longer have writer’s block with it. So, chapter 35 should be out this upcoming Wednesday!! So we’ll see what Val has in store for Stjarna now that she’s back in Vanaheim. :) Sorry again for the delay!
Hi! I don't know if anyone else has said this yet, but thank you. You are one of the most amazing people in the bjd hobby to me. You always post such wonderful text posts that make me feel so much better about my place in the community, when all I see on confession blogs and from recast owners are negative comments about the dolls I love. Please don't ever stop spreading your positivity, your love of all dolls, and your determination. You are contagious for all of us who read your posts <3
Thank you so much anon! I know my blog can be pretty gloomy, and i have a lack of photo content, but reading this makes me feel so much better! I try to type the truth out for those who need to hear it, especially when i start to notice things getting rough in the hobby, BUT that being said:
When things start getting rough, like that post i see floating around about that obviously anti-artist person bashing Resinsoul and Dollzone, while yes they should be reprimanded for their stupidity, I see it as an opportunity for us to have some sassy positivity. I would LOVE to see the bjd tag get flooded with Resinsoul and Dollzone posts just to shove it in this person’s face, all while promoting some amazing legit companies. Or, like what i did, remind everyone that no matter what legit company they buy from, their dolls are wonderful and some butthurt person on the internet telling you otherwise needs a reality check.
I don’t plan on stopping any time soon anon, and please don’t stop either. I would love to see your dolls <3 feel free to shoot me a private message!
As I adore your fics, especially Naruto ones, I'd love to read what you're working on right now. Also, could you post a list of prompts you've got or are they going to be a surprise?
Cool. Because I’ve got lot of story outlines that I’m really excited about but I want to get some other WIPs done first but ahhh they’re such cool ideas~ so it’ll be nice to share them, even if they aren’t fics yet. ^_^
As for the prompts, I’m working on getting them typed up so making a list seems kinda redundant when I’m already done writing them and I’m going to be posting them tonight/tomorrow morning. So it’s a surprise, I suppose…
