sorry this was just a really good day

naomi this might be kind of random but could i ask you for some art advice? i used to love drawing and was considered to be really good at it, but at some point i got frustrated w what i made and just scrapped it all and never bothered with it again. but now like 5 years later i really want to get into drawing again, but i don't know where to start. do you know what i should do?

Sure!! Sorry I haven’t responded to this my inbox piles up pretty quickly surprisingly jflasd

The only thing I can say is that getting frustrated with your art is a normal and an almost every day (if not every other day) process for most artists. I think its just something all artists go through, most artist that I know closely hate their current pieces even just a little bit- and when they like the picture right off the bat eventually they’ll spot that little (or big) part of the work that they just want to go back and fix. The easiest thing to work through this issue is just practicing that part (or parts) of your work that you struggle with- draw it a hundred, a thousand times if you need to. And when you think its still not good enough, look at your original picture you hated and I can guarantee you’ll see improvement even if its not readily apparent. 

For me when I took an art break after college I studied anatomy extensively, and i still do. I filled a sketchbook with sketches of hands, profiles, and legs/torso feet. I’m not sure if you draw people but whatever you subject matter is break it down to its vital components and shapes, practice them, and then build from there.  I’m still not satisfied with the way I draw hands but I know im getting there, and

drawing is a never ending learning experience, I firmly you believe you can only get better.

My roommate that’s a scad grad told me the best advice I’ve tried to stick too ever since I met her

 “ It’s not perfect. It’ll never be. Just finish it.”

Even if you absolutely hate it finish it because at then end of the day you’re sitting with a finished piece. You’d never finish the hand if you cant get past the thumb. 

Have some links too to help you!! 

I hope you don’t mind If i publish this as well, I get asked this question in many forms a lot so it’s nice to answer it every now and again. And I hope that helps!

A while back I said something very insensitive, rude, and, now that I think about it, very ignorant. I don't know how much it means when I've been on anon both times and it was so long ago, but I just wanted to say that I thought about it a lot and you were right. I'm sorry I was such a shit in anon. I hope you have a good day.

aw, this is actually really sweet of you. it takes a lot to admit you might’ve been wrong

i wish you luck in the future.

I'm so glad I stumbled upon your blog a month ago, your art was amazing then and it only keeps getting better and more detailed! I was never really into shipping before, but there's just something really special about WT that I love. I hope you're doing good, stay strong ^_^ (also, happy birthday, even if a few days late xP)

Hey there! Sorry for the late reply! >.< I hope you guys know that even though I can’t reply right away (Rein Shield of IRL be blockin me), I always read your messages and keep them in mind~ ^^

Thanks for sticking with this blog when you found it~ It’s getting to a point where I wanna pulse bomb my older art..but I think that’s a good sign that improvement is progressing quickly~ And even if I would draw my older work differently now, I hope that the idea and the feeling in those pictures are still intact! ;u;

I’m so happy to hear that you’re interested in the dynamic between WidowTracer despite not being into shipping previously! On the outside, people might just see WT as flashy, spicy, sparkles (and that’s fine too if that’s your jam!) - but I have seen and do see a lot of possibilities about them! I hope that my drawings can push the perception of WT in a new direction - that’s one of my biggest motivations when I draw them. At the same time, I’m happy to celebrate classic perceptions of WT too~ ^^

Thank you for the bday wish! I’m older than Tracer but younger than Widow so I’m in the middle of WT’s ages hahaha~

Is intentionally triggering yourself faking? I saw a post that said you aren't faking unless you decided to fake it but I often try to trigger my mental illness/ make it worse just so I know I really have it and idk if that's considered faking.. sorry if this ask isn't something you can/ feel comfortable answering! You're really cool and have a good day!

No? i mean you can’t trigger a disorder that isn’t there…..

i mean you super shouldnt do it because it’s bad for you and also read as anti-recovery but like, i do it. its shitty but i do it too.

idk how you would be faking in that case like you cant trigger soemthing that doesnt exist if you successfully triggered it it exists and you arent faking???

traitcrfinn  asked:

I really liked your thoughts on Luna and especially Dark!Luna, having read some fics in the past in which she, although not outright dark, isn't light either. I wanted your opinion on the idea that she potentially presents symptoms of being mentally ill? Though one could put it down to magical theories and stuff, to me, her behaviour reminds me a lot of when someone disassociates or is experiencing strong delusions (Her talk of magical creatures like nargles which may not exist) and (+)

(+) and I feel like this could make sense as Xenophilius shares similar traits and generally mental illnesses can be passed down through the family. Alternatively, it would make sense for her to react this way after the trauma of watching her mother die and suffer with being isolated and bullied by other students, with no one else to depend on. Sorry for rambling, I really got into this theory(?) but yeah I just wanted to share it with someone! Hope you have a good day~


I’m hesitant to call a character mentally ill when it’s not clear she’s being painted that way.  Indeed, when she sees the thestrals they ARE there, so I don’t know if we can write off those other creatures as delusion on her part.  They might be imaginary. She might really see something. In JKR’s world it’s hard to tell, and there are other times Luna is portrayed as seemingly nuts when what she is doing makes sense (reading the magazine upside down, for example, which turns out to be so she can look at text printed that way).

She’s certainly experienced trauma with the death of her mother, and she is bullied by other students.  That’s solidly canonical.   If someone asked me if a teenager who had experienced things like that in the real world would benefit from a good therapist I’d say, “Absolutely.”  But has that trauma pushed her past being very lonely and clingy to people who aren’t that close to her just because they are kind of nice now and then?  I don’t know.

Day 3! An AU

Well I present to you Underfluff, an au where everyone seem like they’re going to kill you but they’re actually just big overcooked cinnamon rolls

sans uses big floof hug……. it’s supereffective

Heyo! :D
(I don’t know how this works ehh)

I just recently started to watch your videos and man! I wish I discovered you sooner! (Because you are a literal ray of sunshine and you brighten my day up so much)

And so I wanted to draw you! (And the other yous) uhm.. Sorry if this is weird, I don’t really know what to say xD

But anyway, oh boy.. Happy really late birthday and congrats too! I hope you have a nice day! :3

Thomas: WHAAAAAT!!!!!! This is absolutely INCREDIBLE!!!! Oh my goodness, what a beautiful birthday gift, THANK YOU for this!!! I love it!!

the times my son, harry james potter, was the sass king

  • there’s no need to call me ‘sir’, professor
  • it’s just, you can’t break an unbreakable vow. I’d worked that much out  for myself funnily enough.
  • wow, I wonder what it’d be like to have a difficult life 
  • whatcha fell ova for? I didn’t do it on purpose
  • the task is two days from now. really? I had no idea 
  • did you think we’d be staying in five-star hotels? finding a horcrux every other day?
  • but I am the chosen one
  • tell them I mean no harm. I’m sorry, professor. but I must not tell lies.
  • listening to the news! again? well, it changes every day, you see
  • yeah, you can have a word. good-bye
  • I know what day it is. well done. so you’ve finally learned the days of the week
  • just do what I did, harry! what, drop my wand?
  • an interview? what do you mean? I mean a reporter asked me questions and I answered them
  • It’s time you learned some respect! It’s time you earned it.
  • they stuff people’s heads down toilet the first day at Stonewall. Want to come upstairs and practice? no, thanks. The poor toilet’s never had anything as horrible as your head down it — it might be sick
  • Sure you can manage that broom, Potter?… Shame it doesn’t come with a parachute — in case you get too near a dementor. Pity you can’t attach an extra arm to yours, Malfoy. then it could catch the Snitch for you.

Dan also got him a big green lava lamp that he finds very relaxing

They hung out by the seaside a lot

They had afternoon tea which is his favorite part about living in the UK

His mum made him a cake that looked like he was lying in a ball pit

bad | 07

he was the cliché bad boy. he was the guy you couldn’t stand. he was the handsome, hot kid who made girls go weak in the knees. he was a brat. you had never liked him one bit, but you had also never gotten involved with anything concerning him. until one day, when you were in the wrong place, at the wrong time.

You associated every song of yours to a specific time and place.

The whimsical cluster chords that opened up Blue Afternoon made you think of the view from your window last spring. Looking down on the busy streets of Seoul from your flat, a crowding of umbrellas had danced to the sound of heavy rain, and you had been immediately struck with a melody line.

That was your favorite part of songwriting – that moment when you finally had something, after having absolutely nothing.

Ironically enough, out of all the songs on your album, you disliked Paper Doll the most.

Even before it had been propelled to the top of the music charts, the song had never been a favorite. The melody line was catchy but predictable, with the most common chord progressions and an overproduced chorus. The people reviewing your songs during the album production had all loved it, however, and they had adamantly decided to push it as a title track.

It was amusing how people presumed the song described a devastating heartbreak between you and your first love. They weren’t exactly wrong, but their interpretation was completely off. Still, you weren’t stupid enough to disapprove their theories. If they wanted to believe that your first boyfriend was a heartless playboy, then that wasn’t your problem.

At least you had never thought it would have to be a problem.

Annabeth sleeping in on a Sunday morning (very rare for her but she's 3 months pregnant and always tired so she'll take the rest) and waking up to the faint sound of music coming from the kitchen. She goes to investigate and finds her beautiful husband Percy cooking pancakes with their beautiful 2 year old son in his arms, the two of them dancing as the radio plays something mellow. She stops to watch as their son periodically feeds his dad "booberries" and Percy peppers his son's face w kisses

(i want you to know that this killed me,,,im writing from beyond the grave)

their two year old, theodore, is wearing his favourite shark footie PJs which have blueberry stains around the sleeves and his collar. (it’s a laundry day anyway). he coos happily when he sees his mamma and is easily transferred to her hip when she leans in for a kiss from percy. (one of those easy we’re-gonna-do-this-for-the-rest-of-our-lives kisses which says hi, hello, good morning, and i love you all in one. it’s magic, really.) theodore feeds her a couple of booberries which she thanks him for before sitting him at the table. she makes coffee and percy serves them all pancakes and it’s just a really really great sunday morning.

12.18 coda

Sam tells him in the diner that satyrs lure people away with a promise of pleasure just so they can eat them raw.

Dean thinks that well-meaning waitresses might work the same way.

She gives him a smile, a sweet one that’s everything right with a world so far from his own, and he’s able to let go of his stress after days of stewing in desperate silence. She grabs his hand and leads him out back after the dinner rush slows, and Dean knows he won’t be going back to the motel with Sam tonight. He’ll be wandering, bare foot and chasing a half-real high.

And it works. His body takes over as soon as that door shuts and it tells him he’s happy. But he can feel her teeth digging into him just the wrong side of too hard when they kiss. Her nails gouge deep into his shoulders, leave marks, remind him again that he’s hurting. Her pours his passion into her and he leaves himself cold and empty in the process. 

She devours him and she doesn’t even know she’s doing it.

He lies there in bed with her long after she’s curled up and gone to sleep but invited him to stay, facing away from him in a strip of exposed moonlight. Dean runs one hand softly along the swell of his chest, the closed cavity of his heart, just to make sure that he’s still all there. He stays.

Taptaptaps his fingers. Just can’t seem to help himself. Still longing. Still worrying.

He rolls onto her again in the morning after a bad dream wakes him up and they fuck against her bedroom door before they leave. Dean keeps his tie askew even when he drops her off at the restaurant. He arches desperately closer into her in the doorway, seeking warmth, and he forgets to care if anyone is watching him.

At first, Finn doesn’t understand what the problem is.

The base on D’Qar moves to a different heartbeat than Starkiller: more chaotic than ordered, with an inconsistent stream of missions and refugees and impromptu meetings in the war room early enough for his eyes to still be tacky and blurred. He tries his best to slide into the place left behind by the countless bodies rendered to ash in the wake of the Hosnian system, even though he swears the General will glance in his direction and just stare straight through him, as though witnessing a phantom.

Finn isn’t sure he wants to know what she’s actually seeing.

So he works, and he gives quiet advice, trying to keep his head down, cause yeah, he’d excelled at being a Stormtrooper, at tactics and standard recon and procedure, even though by the end of it Phasma’s vaguely proud turn had turned sour when he had refused to leave anyone behind. On some fundamental level, Finn knew the Resistance didn’t operate that way; General Organa’s quiet joy when her pilots returned as a whole, with no men lost. When they find a complete family adrift in the wreckage of the New Republic. When another soldier stumbles from the medbay with his head still attached to his body.

Finn likes to think that he’s helping. Poe says it often enough, but Poe also enjoys protein bars and standard maintenance, so Finn is starting to think that his advice is a little dubious.

So when he recommends the 286 Manoeuvre, a standard First Order protocol dictating Stormtrooper positions on the ground, and there’s a weird sort of silence that kind of descends on the room, enough that Kaydel Ko looks up from her datapad and Snap quirks an eyebrow, and his skin seems to shift, jittering with nerves.

But Statura just nods, with a smile, and asks him to continue.
