paper hope

marmasake  asked:

Your art is incredible, and i love your Chrom and Robin inktober prompt! Can i ask what you use for the gold details in your inktober and what kind of paper you use if it's not too much to ask?

Aaah thank you very much! I’m very much in love with this couple too with this prompt too, I’m really thinking about making a digital print of them later! 

For the gold details, i’m using Ecoline gold watercolor! I’m using a regular watercolor brush to apply it (I’m always diluting it a bit in water so it don’t get too *muddy*). For paper, I’m using 300gms watercolor paper, Canson brand! I hope it’s answering to all your questions! 

So here we are again.

Cafes and schedules and scratching out words onto paper in a desperate hope that they’ll translate into my daily life. That they’ll mean something. That I can change.

It’s been two months since my homecoming. A lot of things have happened. I was positive about grad school. I decided not to go to grad school. I got my old job back. I got promoted to full time. I realized there are still avenues I can use my skill sets.

Honestly?

There’s been mostly confusion.

But every day I take my demons for a walk, and I look at the sky and take a deep breath and tell them how blue it is, how pearlescent the clouds are today. They tell me to keep looking at the sky, at what I can’t have, and I stubbornly direct my gaze to the ground. And whenever I see an acorn, I bend down to pick it up, and even if it’s not perfect, I slip it into my pocket anyways, because it’s worth taking home.

They don’t know how beautiful the trees can be, how majestic and awe inspiring a quiet road lined with houses is. But I’ll teach them.

Because I know these things somewhere. Somewhere deeper than this. Somewhere in my bones.

I’m not superstitious, but… I am a little stitious.

HEY HEY HEY! Matt and Lance flirting with each other like really hard because they can't help it -they think is funny- BUT SHIRO AND KEITH ARE REALLY PISSED LIKE SHIRO RESTRAINING HIMSELF FROM KILLING LANCE AND KEITH TRYING TO NOT ACT SALTY TOWARDS MATT -cuz he jelly- BUT TOTALLY FAILING! PLUS PIDGE IS VERY PROUD OF HER BROTHER AND HER ALMOST BROTHER! (PLEASEEEEE)

ALRIGHT THIS POST/REQUEST WAS CONSPIRED OVER A DM WITH THE LOVELY @somegaytrash (WHO IS 100% PERSONALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR MY DECENT INTO SHATT HELL LMAO ILY) 

we decided that it would be absolutely hilarious if matt turned out to be even more of a flirt than lance and then they both jokingly flirt with each other all the time… this leads to very unhappy and jealous shiro/keith and a very proud pidge 😂

pls enjoy 💜

(shipping shiro with both matt and allura is a constant daily struggle for me…….. i really need shatt to be more popular tho because it’s precious but also the ship name makes me laugh every single time)

RULE #1
Never cry. Why ruin your makeup or soak your brand new coat? Just keep it in or transform your sadness into anger. Anger is much more appealing than weakness.
RULE #2
Always chew gum. Blow bubbles, pop it in annoyance, chew it until it grows stringy and thin between your molars. Keep your mouth busy. That way you can’t say anything you don’t mean.
RULE #3
Bite your lip, not only will it attract the attention of the boy who holds his cup way too tight to have any idea what he’s doing with it, but it’ll also split open and your blood will act as a natural lip stain.
RULE #4
Soak your homework in orange juice and force it down your throat. Gulp it down, don’t you dare heave it up. Fill up your stomach with the paper and hope to god you’ll pass chemistry. Who knows, maybe trees will sprout and you’ll finally be able to take in oxygen. It’s the breakfast of champions.
RULE #5
Problems aren’t problems until you acknowledge that you have problems. So what if you drink a little too much on a school night? Who cares if you stand too long at the edge of the look-out point? Just flash them a smile, hike up your dress, laugh a little higher. It’s not running away from the issue if the issue doesn’t exist, right?
RULE #6
Lock your closet, skeletons are only meant to be seen in your health class.
RULE #7
Shatter your mirror, pick up a piece and hold it at arms length. There, now you can control what reflects back at you. Besides, it makes since to look at the individual parts of yourself, you’ve never been whole.
RULE #8
Stand up straight, don’t bow your head. Blue blood may not run through your veins but, unless it spills, no one has to know.
RULE #9
Remember that you’re a forest fire. You have poison underneath your finger nails. You are a wild thing, and wild things can not be tamed.
RULE #10
If you can’t be guaranteed heaven then give them hell.
