someone finally drew me

♪♫♬ “Let me show you a world, shining, SHIMMERING, spleeeendid!

Ayo! Guess who finally drew some bees! I actually had someone a while ago ask me to draw Yang and Blake dancing together from V2′s dance, but hey better late then never, here’s to you anon!

I kind of loathe most all the dresses the girls had for that dance scene, so I decided to redesign their dresses for them. Yang’s dress kind of got the short end of the stick since I didn’t want her dress to cover up her pose, but eh, Yang’s dress will always get the short end of the stick I suppose. XD

HeY yOu! Did anyone EVER tell you that you're a ball of sunshine and creativity? No? Yes? Well they should more often. Also,I'm afraid I have the 25 dollar question of the hour (that literally made no sense whatsoever...) May I ask how you draw a full body sketch? Lately I've been bummed out because I can never draw a full body sketch (I can only draw from the neck and up)... Also,how can you draw with symmetry? It's quite hard and is like an experts opinion on it. ThAnK yOu and have a great day

hello!!!! aH well i’m no expert myself since i’ve never gone to art school and my only source of Artistic Education™ are youtube videos lmao but i’ll try to explain as best as i can!!

when drawing a symmetrical full body, i personally find that it’s easiest to do it when you’ve already got the hang of the shoulders since theyre kind of the “starting point” to a full body drawing?? for me at least?? so here’s a bit of a tutorial i made to do just that + a tiny review about the shapes i use in a full body drawing (i’m only focusing on the shoulders for now so let me know if you need more explanation on that!)

(((also, you are about to be subjected to some pretty terrible handwriting. you have been warned.)))

and there you have it!! this is my first time drawing out a tutorial of any kind so idk if it helps at all but i hope it does! i’d love to help out some more if you’d like so just hit me up whenever! :)

It’s schizophrenia awareness week!

As you may know from my personal posts recently, over the past few months I’ve developed and been diagnosed with schizophrenia, so I’m going to talk a little about it in honor of this week. 

When I was in 7th grade, my gifted class did a unit on abnormal psychology and we learned about all the different mental illnesses. We all drew from a hat for the illness we’d do our final project on. I drew schizophrenia and convinced someone to trade with me because of all the mental illness we covered, I just couldn’t understand exactly what schizophrenia was. It made no sense to me. I just couldn’t grasp it. I was afraid of it–aren’t schizophrenics the ones who kill people? 

Now I understand schizophrenia in the most horrible way. 

It’s been really hard for me to accept my diagnosis. I was in denial for a long time, and I’m still struggling to come to terms with it. A big part of the problem for me was deconstructing all of the stereotypes and stigma surrounding schizophrenia. I thought that I wouldn’t be able to have a life, a job, love. Sometimes I still wonder if I’m worthy of any of that, if I’ll ever find someone who will accept me despite my illness.

This is why awareness is so important. I’m a fairly successful student, studying physics at university. I’m an artist and a writer in my free time. I’m a bit of a nerd; I love Star Trek and cats and vintage fashion and clothing. I leave lipstick stains on everything I touch and I love frozen yogurt. My favorite music artist is Kaki King. I have a red car with a Space Shuttle tag. I’m super cute. I’m a person, and I’m here to show you I’m so much more than “schizophrenia.” 

I am not my illness. 

I still have a lot to work through, but I’ve had the support of my amazing friend biobastard and others along the way, and for that I am beyond grateful. 

I thought because you’re having a hard time and because of that thing you posted a few days ago, it might cheer you up if I randomly drew you? Sorry for the quality of the drawing, it’s been a while since I’ve done any observational drawing so I hope it’s okay :)

ohmygod!!! hannah!!!! omg ilysm thank you omg you’re so talented
