Hey, @prozdvoices, I was binging PBnT’s Kingdom Hearts let’s play again, aaaand this happened.
It’s KH Anne Marie! :) I plan on drawing you and Alex, too. This took a while but it was super fun.
Hope you guys continue with the rest of the (less frustrating) KH games!
i’m not against any type of veg*nism. as a matter of fact, i think that those who can do it are good for doing so as long as they are well read and can maintain their health. i do, however, have a huge problem with how exclusionist the veg*n movement is, and the fact that its main tactics involve either shocking people, mass use of misinformation, or saying “you have no say in animal welfare because you support animal cruelty.” that alone ostracises people, but it also forces people to admit this or that about themselves to not seem horrible when pressed to answer why they aren’t veg*n (“why aren’t you veg*n? why do you support animal cruelty?” “because i cannot afford or manage it in my current situation/my medication doesn’t let me take on the title/i’m AVAP but don’t consider myself worth the label”)
the veg*n movement steeps in the idea that it is something much more than just a personal diet preference, but that’s wrong. there are too few people (because of the strong exclusionism rampant in all veg*n walks of life) to make an impact and, ultimately, even if 30% of the western world abstained from all animal products, little about the industry will change because demand would still be high enough for it to go on. this is why i will always encourage selective omnivory. just like teaching safe sex is more effective than teaching abstinence, thoughtful purchasing of ethically-sourced animal products is something exponentially more people are willing (and able!) to do.
if you really want to make a change, make it so that more people can join your efforts.
i see a lot of posts going around about how the process of making art is essentially just tears and experiencing The Struggle™ and while those are ALL TRUE i would also like to point out the GOOD THINGS about making art!!!!!!
when u finally find that ONE PERFECT SHADE OF COLOR
experimenting with different art styles
those tiny mindless doodles u make on the corner of the page
flipping ur canvas and seeing that ur drawing isnt TOO asymmetrical
[picks brush u dont often use] why the HECK dont i use this more often???
putting ur music on shuffle and a song that fits the scene of what ure drawing comes on
turning off ur lineart layer and having a good laugh over how ur color layer looks like a melting ice cream
drawing something u’ve never tried and realizing that u LIKE IT
when ur friend does the compliment thing. thank u friend
drawing a curvy line and GETTING IT RIGHT THE FIRST TRY
overlay. thats it
spacing out in the middle of sketching/lining/coloring and 5 mins later going like o HEY COOL i can draw
that tiny pop when u stretch ur back after hours of arting
seeing the final result and thinking goddamn!!!!!!
