How do you draw a closed snoot? Amd also how do you draw an open snoot from the front?

I draw closed snoots pretty much the same way as opened ones, as illustrated in this one tutorial i did a bit ago! Same goes for drawing opened mouths from the front. 

for closed muzzles, I tend to do placement lines for where the base of the muzzle connects to the face (and also as a marker for where the bottom of the eyes are gonna go!) and a line down the center of the muzzle to help me place the nose and make the upper lip indent shape! This is something I honestly don’t do too much bc I mostly forget but it helps SO MUCH

end result from using said guidelines hfhfh

as for opened snoots, here’s a lil thing using the same formula as my first tutorial;

Firstly, I start out roughing out where I want everything to go! The purple line in the right image helps me place the top corners of the mouth, where i’ll be dragging the lines for the sides of the mouth in a sec. This is a good time to map out how you want your expression to go, since the corner of the mouth I find makes it easier to connect everything else as you’re going along. 

After you get that sorted, drag the lines (blue lines) down from the corners (it’s perfectly fine if the lines don’t match up with the corners, it doesn’t have to be exact!), which are the rest of the mouth. Now is a good time to go in and tighten up/stretch the mouth shape to however it’ll benefit your character/style/expression. My sona has pretty round shapes, so I keep things rounded for her most of the time. (unless i’m exaggerating her expression, then things tend to get a little bit sharp and asymmetrical)

Annnnnnnd then you go in and start adding details! Teeth, tongue, etc. You can see I kinda shortened the lower jaw shape lines a bit after everything since I noticed the mouth was a bit too wide/sliding to the right.. Just so it aligns with the top part of the jaw a little easier!! this is pretty much how I do all my mouth/muzzle stuff, so I hope it helps a bit!

Hi :) so I have just finished Palo Alto which was amazing and a really different dynamic to Remus/Sirius which I loved! In one of the authors notes it said that you are ace? And I was just wondering if it isn't to personal how you knew? Cause I related to Sirius a bit in your story and have been trying to work it out for a while so just wondered if you had any advice at all? Ta x

Hi there! Thanks for the ask, and thank you so much for the kind words about Palo Alto! I’m happy to hear that you enjoyed the story and were able to relate to Sirius and his journey.

Yes, I identify as asexual, and I’m always down to chat about ace stuff. I feel your struggle! There’s not a ton of great information out there since it’s something that no one talks about. There’s also a lot of false information out there, equating libido, sexual activity, and attraction rather than allowing them to exist separately.

As for how I knew… in some ways I always knew, and in some ways I was clueless. I definitely knew I didn’t find people attractive in the same ways that my friends and people the media seemed to, but honestly, I just thought everyone else was exaggerating about how sprung they got whenever they saw someone hot. Whoops.

My main advice would be to read, read, read! Asexuality Archive and the Asexual Visibility and Education Network (AVEN) are good places to start. They’re not perfect, but they have clear-cut definitions and well thought out articles.

Don’t stress about finding the perfect label. Asexuality is a spectrum, not a strict code of behavior. If a more specific label is helpful to you, then that’s great! But if you find it too overwhelming or nitpicky to quantify your sexual and romantic attraction, then don’t worry about it.

Don’t worry about changing your mind later. Maybe in a year, five years, ten years, thirty years, or tomorrow, you decide that asexual isn’t the right term for you. That’s cool. You can change your mind. At the end of the day, the only person you’ve got to answer to is yourself.

Ignore the negative discourse. Don’t engage, don’t give it any attention. Just block that shit and move on to positive, supportive content.

Don’t be afraid to start chatting with other ace-spec folks! I’ve had very positive experiences here on Tumblr. Personally, I’m always happy to answer questions or have a friendly discussion.

Other ace-spec folks, feel free to add on with advice or resources!

…Y'know, I think I found what’s kinda messing me up on my perception of my own passionate tendencies.

Anyone else ever do that thing where you get jealous of others for engaging in fun activities/expressing enthusiasm for their work (say, posting regular Inktober updates), and yet when you say “well why don’t you just do that thing? Nothing’s stopping you!”, you’re all like “…?????” Because that’s a thing with me sometimes.

Most of my knowledge at this point tells me it’s an sx-blind thing (being too lazy to put effort into shit you supposedly really care about), but maybe it could also be a 9-thing (inertia and lack of drive making it difficult to go from a state of doing nothing to a state of activity) or even a 4-thing (envying others and yet doing nothing to get yourself out of that hole). Anyone have any thoughts?

jason @ age 10: shaped like a lil jellybean. round. stubby. positively squishy what a good baby

jason @ age 13: puberty hits, shoots up to like 5ft 9. no longer a lil jellybean n this possibly distresses dakota 

jason @ age 16: hits 6ft 1 & is respectably muscled after like 12 years of legion training. is a wee bit disproportionate bc his shoulders r wide as hell compared to his waist. dakota is still distressed

jason @ age 19: creeps up to about 6ft 3, v slowly. shoulders n waist continue to make him a dorito boy but he’s grown into his body n weight n goddamn so n how are those abs real. his jawline continued on a trajectory from ‘sharp’ to ‘why bother w/ a sword at all’

jason @ age 22: hits his highest max @ 6ft 4, and is probably jokingly compared to / confused for capn merica more often than he cares for. the dorito shape remains but with added beef. has started greying from stress but its ok his hair is p light its probably not too noticeable, 

So, i went into the closest planned parenthood. They do offer HRT help and they have a specialist. I told them that while i dont have health coverage yet, i will in november. So they told me that i should get put into the system now, and call again when i have coverage so i can get an appointment with the specialist as soon as manageable. And even though this is step… Like negative two?? Im so relieved. This looks like it could be a reality.

mini cryptid hunter!bts au bc i was enabled

@clockwork-lullaby this was probably more than you were asking for but it’s happening

yoongi

  • the “logical” cryptid hunter. if you watch buzzfeed unsolved just think shane LOL
  • yoongi just has a really specific fear and it’s of demons
  • grew up in a really religious church playing the piano as a kid so he always heard about “exorcisms” being done on the church grounds late at night from his friends
  • yoongi isn’t as dumb but i mean he’s bored on a friday night and his parents are out for their anniversary so he goes and sneaks in with them to the church and the lights are on and he actually encounters a possessed church goer getting cleansed by a few priests but it’s just. like not working?
  • the person is absolutely livid and seething and speaking in a crackly voice and suddenly the demon notices him and his friends run but yoongi is just stone still
  • before the demon can try and hurt him it’s exorcised and yoongi is completely mortified and the priests are like “kid omg why are you here you could have DIED” and they tell him to never speak of it to anyone and yoongi’s smart enough to know that what he’s just seen is something way beyond his years
  • in fact he’s repressed it so much that even when he’s older sometimes he has to remind himself it happened and now hunting demons is just his damn calling
  • 100% carries a dagger or something dipped in holy water and probably knows a bunch of bible verses that’ll make a demon squeal right off the top of his head
  • when not hunting demons, he’s usually just making fun of namjoon for getting spooked all the time LOL
  • him and hoseok are like the lethal duo for demons like god forbid you’re a demon and get on their bad side bc u will be finessed tf into a pile of ash
  • probably naps on the way to haunted sites and the first maknae to rouse him from his sleep is carrying him to their destination
  • (but never jimin bc jimin is not a heathen like the others ofc)

Hello, you have been identified as An Awesome Writer™. Congrats, you rock! So that all of your readers can shower you with some extra love today, please tell us your favourite five (or as many as you want) stories of yours and why you like them and then send this to another five fic authors you think deserve this title! ♥

:DDDD STAAAAAHP YOU’RE GON MAKE ME BLUSH!

Uuuuuh, can I be the worst and say all of them because I am a proud fic mama that can’t really choose? 

nah i wont do that but i def considered lol

In no particular order because ordering them would just make things so hard D:

Kingdom- Obvs lol Why do I like it? Because it’s really testing my ability to weave together several stories in different timelines to create one big kinda fantasy mystery. Not to mention the different storylines are written with different tones so it’s always interesting to test out jumping between the two. Plus, uh, I just like the idea. It’s the fantasy YA fic literally no one here asked for but I’m giving you anyway XD

I’ll Take the Blame, You Take My Conscience- This one is a BIG. DAMN. CHALLENGE. Why? Because it’s super serious, and there’s action, and Yakuza, and it’s set in Japan. There is pretty much nothing in this that I haven’t had to do a shit ton of research on to try and make it as accurate as possible because I don’t wanna be one of those writers that basically whitewashes Japanese themes and cultures because I was too lazy to research it. Sure, I coulda just done a mafia AU but I didn’t wanna do that. I wanted a challenge. Plus, I just really love Sheith okay.

Tweethearts- One part of me says I should probs feel embarrassed that my most popular fic ever was a One Direction one. It’s a really small part though because to this day I still think about the R U MINE? scene  that I had written before I’d even come up with the rest of the planning for the whole fic, and this party scene that was just plain fun. Honestly, my rom-com style writing may have peaked with this one.

I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)- Faved because it was another challenge to see if I could write something that seemed like it was going one way without letting anything on to the actual nature of it until the twist. Did it work? Idk, I suppose that’s for y’all to decide. lol still a tiny bit sorry for testing that one out on you guys XD

Starboy and Sugartits- A Love Story- Lol how could I not love something with that title. Like if there is one thing I’m super proud about in everything I’ve ever done, it’s the title of Starboy and Sugartits. Also it was just a blast to write the members of Voltron into a gay club with stripper poles and $2 drinks. (With drink recipes that really exist so y’all should check it out if only to find some new drinks. 21+ DRINK RESPONSIBLY KIDDOS.)

I’ve checked my account, and I can either afford to order these breast forms + a pocket bra…. Or I could go out and buy makeup. I cant afford both right now.

On one hand… I really do want the breast forms. Although, since I’m not out to… almost anyone IRL, I’d only really be wearing them when I know no-one else is home. Plus, they’ll take time to arrive, and although this outlet offers discreet shipping, one google search of the return address and its pretty clear whats inside.

On the other hand… I could ostensibly use makeup right away, because I will physically have it. It’ll also likely cost a bit less total (at least for starters). The downside is… I have no idea how to apply makeup properly (there’s a bunch of youtube tutorials in my future) and I have a lot of anxiety about fucking that up too. If I make it too overt, that’ll out me before I’m ready too… For now, I mostly want to know how to cover my beard shadow and blemishes. 

Which to choose…
