oh the things i do for tumblr

anonymous asked:

Not to be rude, but the quality of your artwork isn't very high. Do you even try any more?

 OK, I’m going to try and explain.

 The majority of the art I post to Tumblr is literally just doodles. I very rarely post the things I legitimately work hard on, because most of my actual artwork is either going towards my art coursework or anatomy and portraiture practice. 

 Also, my illustrations are something I don’t want people to comment on just yet. I’m taking art seriously to plan for my career in the future, and the only feedback I want at this point in time is from my art teachers. Sorry if this sounds harsh, but Tumblr really isn’t the best place to be given constructive criticism and it’s absolutely necessary that I receive it so that I can improve. Later on, when I’m more comfortable with people commenting on something that’s taken me between two and four hours at least, I might start posting my digital illustrations, but for now all you’re going to be seeing is a quick sketch or doodle that I’ve done in my spare time. 

 Keep that in mind - I draw fan art in my spare time. I don’t usually take time out of my day to draw, most of it comes from me being bored when I’ve finished my work in classes or the rare occasions where I get a free evening with nothing else to do. It’s more like something I do to unwind or relax than something I have to make sure gets done by the end of the day.

 Eventually, I’m sure I’ll be able to start posting things that have actually taken me time to create and, you know, look good. I’m very much aware that what I post right now kind of looks like shit, but that’s because it really doesn’t require a lot of effort to draw (however, I’m very grateful that people like my crappy little sketches and sent me a lot of positive messages when I was first starting out, otherwise I probably would’ve stopped a long time ago). Anyway, I’m sad to say that you probably won’t be getting any halfway decent artwork for a while. I’ve only got until September until I really have to worry about my final exams, and if I decide to go to college next year instead of staying at my school before I leave for university, I’ll be up to my neck in homework. But I am planning to study art at college or wherever I decide to go so that’s most likely when you’ll get something I’ve worked hard on.

 So yes, I hope that explains everything. Good day.

I was feeling terrible because I forgot to commemorate my cat’s eighth adoption anniversary, but I just learned that tumblr will make gifs from videos! So here are some pics of my imperious kitty while he’s trying to go to sleep despite my interferences.

IT’S FINISHED!! Oh my goodness I spent three whole days working on this, and I really like how it turned out. It’s the first thing I’ve legitimately created with my Wacom tablet, so it’s not the best, but yeah I love it. (In case it’s not obvious, it’s based off of @thatsthat24 and Dodie Clark’s ((does she have a tumblr?? idk)) cover of Birds!!) Anyway this was really fun to make and I hope you guys like it as much as I do!!!

I AM VERY HAPPY TO OBLIGE!! *HEART EYES EMOJI INTO THE LIGHT WHERE THE SKY MEETS THE SEA*

Y'all. Y'all. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, do not wait to see it. GO THIS WEEKEND.

I have seen it twice now, and oh my biscuits did I cry a lot. The beauty lies in the alchemy of story, music, and art. It came together in the most exceptional way!! (I could babble forever about all the things that made this film amazing…)

And this is why I left Tumblr.
People are really bitching because Tom Hiddleston won a Golden Globe over a POC. Not only that, but they’re blaming him for it! What was he supposed to do? Refuse it? Make a huge scene and decline the award to who Tumblr has deemed ‘the better actor’? I have NEVER in my life heard of such asinine bullshit! He won. He’s a good actor. Suck it up.

As for his speech, he mentioned his work with UNICEF and how some doctors came to him in South Sudan and told him that they spent a day binge watching his show, The Night Manager. He wasn’t trying to say 'oh haha I’m the shit and I’m the greatest thing ever’. He was saying how amazing it was that these people had seen his show, not only that, but binged it while they are doing some amazing work. Later on in the speech he changes 'I’ to 'we’, because he doesn’t want to take all of the credit for the award. He is a very humble and kind man. Was his speech worded a bit awkwardly? Yes. Was he probably nervous because this was his first major award? Yes. But I do recognize and understand how his wording could have been taken the wrong way. Some users on this website have simply twisted his words to mean that he said he’s the greatest thing ever, that he’s helping Africa singlehandedly, and blessing it with his whiteness.

This blue website exhausts me.

Hello!

I’ve been MIA for the last few months because I’m in recovery for addiction (specifically alcohol!) I’m 79 days sober today.

I was drinking beer almost every night for about three years. I think I drank beer because it made me feel like less of an alcoholic, like “Oh, it’s just beer. You’re not drinking the hard stuff. You’re fine.” I gained about 30 lb and was severely depressed and suffered from anxiety attacks. I didn’t want to go anywhere or do anything unless there would be alcohol there.

Since I’ve quit, I’ve discovered a few things. First, my anxiety is almost completely gone. So I guess that was alcohol induced. Second, the depression is still there! And that’s something I’ve been struggling with these past few months that I’ve been basically missing from Tumblr.

To anyone who placed an order in my shop– I’m so sorry this is happening right now and I’m working on orders today, hoping to get every single order out by the end of this week. If you didn’t receive a tracking number, you should receive one in your e-mail by Sunday. I’m adding in so many extras for you. Doesn’t make up for me being shitty and flaky, but hopefully they will bring you some joy.

Here’s my before and after so far. I lost 17 lb. and then gained 1 lb. back because of election stress. #fuckdonaldtrump
