still dont know what else to tag

This isn’t a simple Elentori repost.

This is me, showing you how sometimes, artists can let themselves be influenced by a peer too heavily. And that simple inspiration can become near-plagiarism.

I’m not putting credit, even if none of these examples are from the same person. I’ve made that decision so no one gets shit over this– though I’m sorry because they are all great pieces, and I know a lot of time and work were put into all of them. I’m not here to bash, or to try and lessen anyone’s worth and talent. Plus– this could have happened with anyone. These are simply the examples I have collected over the past few months.

Last disclaimer: All of the artists above have not repeated this very often, if at all, of what I’ve seen. In fact, it’s not always copying. Just being inspired very heavily (as seen above). And I can see how good they are: Their potential, and, above all, their obvious talent. All in all, I simply want to point out one last time that this is not against them at all. They have simply provided me with the examples I need to make a point.

And who would I be showing other pieces without calling myself out: I’ve done it too, and I include myself in everything I’m saying. It is because I’ve done it, actually, that I take it to heart so much.

Which is fucking embarassing to admit so bear with me.

In fact, even if you do recognize any other of these pieces, don’t give anyone trouble. Please just– don’t ever send good-willed artists hate. Chances are, they were having a nice day before you showed up.

So… it’s well-known there are many ways for artists to learn. To become better: And one of these methods is to copy others.

But usually, these studies remain in your personal folders. They are not to post and claim as your own. Or if you do post them: you’d share it for what it is, I’m assuming.

And this is where this trend gets a little dismaying. In neither of the original posts was there a mention that Elentori was the inspiration. Even though it is obvious to any onlooker. Not even hidden in the tags. And I’ve checked all of these blogs’ archives just to make sure that I was not mistaking the copying and the copied.

I’m not diminishing Elentori’s work either: She’s a great reference, and I don’t know a soul who dislikes her work or doubts her talent. She’s actually made a brand for herslelf and that’s why her style lifts from the masses.

But that’s exactly it: she has found her own style, and it’s working out great for her. And that’s what I wish upon every other artist out there.

There is no reason to purposely put yourself in someone’s shadow, just because you admire them so much.

So like Noah Bradley says in his art camp:

Study art from masters. The older, the better. And if they’re dead, that’s the best. There’s nothing else they could’ve taught you.

(This isn’t an actual quote, it’s just very much the message he gives from what I remember.)

I would change that a little: Copy masters (Master painters, Disney illustrators… and there are more) as well, and especially. Don’t just copy trends or trendsetters, guys. Find your own signature. Something that others will want to copy as well. Something that’ll be uniquely yours. Try different things. Dwelve in cartoons even when you’re into realistic things. Just to better yourself.

And here’s a thought:

Can we make it socially acceptable to be comfortable, as artists, to cite our inspiration? To say;; hey, I tried this artist’s style today. Here’s how it turned out!! Because there must be a reason why we don’t do it. And maybe it’s some untold social construct?

I don’t know. I just think we should move past it.

Reasons To Date Woo Wonjae

Making him laugh

When he’s smoking and you’re like 
“ew babe that smells man” 

“and?” 
“don’t do that, it’s bad for you anyways” 
and he just laughs it off

“eh” 

His power stance 

Eating together 

and then at dinner when he gets choco milk 

When he makes fun of you 

But when you make fun of him (the progression) 

Telling each other jokes before bedtime 

Hugssssssssss

and kisses 

Birthdays together 

Tryin’ to be cool together 

Getting him on that instastory 

Him waiting for you get to the door cuz y’all are late

“Act like one and maybe you’ll get a reward”, an evil grin spread over his face as he exited the car.

Author’s note: I know that mostly after the third part or so the people loose interest in my stories but still there are a some of you who stayed with me!  @httpwyf​ , @dont-hyuck@vicassa@imbaekhyunstrash
@byunbunniess@literaltae@jookyunhoe@crovalkyrie​ I hope I’m not bothering you by tagging you. If so please tell me and I’ll stop ;)  
I’m very thankful to everyone else too! ♥

Even if this part wouldn’t be read at all I still feel like writing it because I do actually enjoy it! I see a lot of people struggling on here by the lack of response they get for they stories while they totally forget the ones who did read and liked it! I must admit that in the beginning I felt the same because it is hard. There are so many awesome writers out there so you always compare yourself. But actually there is no need because writing is  something just for me. It calms me down and I allows me to shut the world out for a little while. And that is what counts I guess. So yeah after telling you my little realization I hope you can enjoy this part :) ♥

@Klance shippers

Now y'all know how you made us Sheith shippers feel. How’s the salt?

anonymous asked:

How did you learn a korean by yourself? Did you read textbooks? I am interested in getting at least a little grasp of korean and to learn basics but I am not sure what would be the best way since all I know is the alphabet/pronounciation and a couple of words.

i just used a combo of online resources~

  • How to Study Korean 
    • I actually started learning with this site, and while it’s definitely very comprehensive, it’s extremely text heavy and the person who made it doesn’t always explain things as well as they could. so I would suggest referencing this if you want lots of examples on how to use different grammar and audio clips to hear what they sound like, but besides that, just try to keep in mind what learning style works best for you, and always look for supplementary resources.
  • BitesizeKorean
    • this studyblr is AMAZING. they explain things so well and have a fantastic study guide with lots of great resources. I highly highly recommend it
  • Faye’s Korean Resources
    • this is also a great list of resources. if you dont feel like going through them all, then at the very least, download this PDF textbook called College Korean, which they link to in their list. this is actually what I’ve been using to study lately for reviewing. but it’s so great omg. short lessons that teach things in a good order and each lesson has questions/exercises at the end that work really well with getting me to remember vocab!
  • Learn Korean
    • this isnt necessarily a site to straight up learn from, but it’s great if you just want to quickly look up simple explanations for a specific particle or other parts of grammar
  • Talk To Me In Korean
    • i’m pretty sure most people know about this channel, but it is really great if you’re a visual/auditory learner! and they explain things in a way that’s very easy to understand!

obviously there are thousands of other resources available, but these are just the ones that I’ve used or am still using, and found to be helpful!

Summary: Everyone’s aura is black until the age of 18 when they get their own personal colour. No one’s is ever the same. Except Dan’s. Dan is 23 and has been waiting for 5 years to wake up with his own colour. But when he meets someone who’s aura is so bright it nearly blinds him, he believes he might be the way to finding his real aura.

Warnings: non this is fluffy as hell with like 2% angst and its just really cute

AN: seems I really like doing fics about colours (shamelessly promotes ’Red’)

He’s like the ocean and I’m the dark grey that fades into black sunk right below him. No one notices black when there’s bright blue to see.

_______

Dan trudged through the streets, working his way to Starbucks. He slipped in and behind the counter, saying hello to his friend and clocking in, sighing at how many bright colours were around him.

“Still no luck?” Louise asked him as she passed him a drinks order and he rolled his eyes, gesturing to himself.

“Am I still black?”

“It will happen soon I’m sure,” she said, patting his shoulder and Dan raised his eyebrows.

“Lou I am the only twenty three year old to still have a black aura after turning eighteen. No one’s colour is black but it’s mine and I hate it. It’s never going to change and I’m going to be murky for the rest of my life,” he told her, passing her the drink he made as she sighed at him.

“You just need to find something to make you happy. Then you will start to take on colour,” she said and Dan rolled his eyes.

“I wish.”

people who knowingly cross tag just to be hateful about a ship and its shippers so that those shippers will know how much they dislike them must literally have such pathetic lives if this kind of behaviour is what gets them off. 

like hey buddy, we see you. this is your kink. we get it. you’re still an assturd of the highest order, but like you know there’s no way you can spin this where you’re morally better than anyone else, right?
