thank you to the people who helped me with my photoshop problems :)

How to bring Asriel back

(undertale spoilers)

With the power of seven human souls, a monster can become godlike. However, for a soulless flower, the equivalent of seven human souls was also able to change Flowey back to who he once was – Asriel. But it may not be that simple.


A human soul is not enough

First, it’s important to get out of the way the misconception that a single human soul would be enough to bring back Asriel. If a single soul was enough for Asriel to come back, Flowey wouldn’t have become Photoshop Flowey. While Photoshop Flowey’s purpose was to regain total control of the timeline and toy with Frisk, Flowey truly wants something more than that.

Six human souls do not give him the compassion he was missing. They do not give him his old body back. Flowey only gains incredible power after absorbing six human souls. Eventually, the human souls fight back against Photoshop Flowey, in response to Frisk’s calling for their help. They save Frisk despite supposedly being under Photoshop Flowey’s control. This is why Flowey refuses to use them again after the first time.

FLOWEY:
Hee hee hee. Don’t worry.
I know there’s no REAL point in fighting you.
The human souls would probably just revolt again.


Monsters souls are needed

To achieve his “REAL FORM”, Flowey needs the equivalent of seven human souls. With god-like powers, Flowey is able to create his desired form – whether that be his child self or a new, more powerful one. However, unable to take Frisk’s soul, Flowey goes after the next best thing – the monsters’ souls.

FLOWEY:
It’s all because you MADE THEM love you.
All the time you spent listening to them…
Encouraging them… Caring about them…
Without that, they wouldn’t have come here.

It’s interesting that Flowey doesn’t go after the monsters until Frisk befriends them. However, there is something significant about this scene. Flowey captured six monsters.

This matches the number of human souls Flowey had stolen. Perhaps, the human souls are not able to revolt if they are matched with the same number of monster souls, and Flowey needed them within grabbing reach. There is also the possibility that with a greater number of souls, the less influence each soul has within the body.

Regardless of the exact reason, the human souls cannot revolt and Flowey achieves his “REAL FORM.” This turns out to be far more true than he may have realized. Once Frisk saves their friends, Frisk is able to reach out to Asriel and SAVE him.

It is thanks to Frisk and the monster souls that Asriel is able to feel again. This would not have been possible had Flowey not absorbed the monsters’ souls. Specifically, without the souls of Frisk’s friends.

ASRIEL:
As a flower, I was soulless.
I lacked the power to love other people.
However, with everyone’s souls inside me…
I not only have my own compassion back…
But I can feel every other monster’s as well.
They all care about each other so much.
And… they care about you too, Frisk.
I wish I could tell you how everyone feels about you.
Papyrus… Sans… Undyne… Alphys…
…Toriel.
Monsters are weird.

Asriel explicitly states that it is the monsters’ compassion that he feels. The humans, strangely enough, are not included. It is the monsters’ love for each other and Frisk that allows him to regain his own compassion. However, then Asriel reveals the sad truth.


Maintaining his true form

FLOWEY:
Frisk.
I have to go now.
Without the power of everyone’s souls…
I can’t keep maintaining this form.
In a little while…
I’ll turn back into a flower.

Notice how Asriel says he needs “the power of everyone’s souls” to maintain this form. This could mean that Asriel requires a power equivalent to seven souls or he requires human souls and monster souls. More than likely, he needs both cases to be true.

The power of seven human souls is god-like. It would make sense that seven human souls, or an equivalent, could keep Flowey as Asriel. However, being a soulless flower, Flowey is missing the love, hope, and compassion monster souls have. 

SNOWDIN LIBRARY BOOK:
Love, hope, compassion… This is what people say monster SOULs are made of.
But the absolute nature of “SOUL” is unknown.
After all, humans have proven their SOULs don’t need these things to exist.

While the Snowdin Library Book claims human souls can exist without compassion, it’s unlikely that all six human souls lack love and compassion. Defying Photoshop Flowey’s control, the human souls rebelled and saved Frisk – an act of compassion towards someone in need. Consider this with what Asriel says about feeling the monsters’ compassion rather than everyone’s. Being a flower infused with monster essence, Flowey may only be in tune with other monsters’ feelings.

FLOWEY:
At first, I used my powers for good.
I became “friends” with everyone.
I solved all their problems flawlessly.

This could also be a case of knowing the monsters. Flowey was created after the six humans had perished, with their determination. He never had a chance to know any of the humans. Frisk doesn’t know them either. On the other hand, Flowey had plenty of time to befriend the monsters. Even if Flowey was missing his compassion, there is no denying that he spent time getting to know these monsters. He even mentions how Papyrus is his favorite. He knows the monsters, so he can connect with their feelings when he has their souls inside of him. Of course, this is only after Frisk saves Asriel using a memory of his best friend, Chara.


Conclusion

To maintain his form and compassion, Asriel would need to keep all the souls he had absorbed – humans and monsters. But that isn’t something Asriel is willing to do.

Through the different instances of bodysharing, it’s clear that souls are still capable of will and desires, even after death. Chara took control of Asriel’s body and carried their own body to the village. The human souls fight back against Flowey and save Frisk. The monster souls have their own feelings and desires. Souls aren’t sources of power – they are still people. To keep the souls for himself would mean imprisoning them for as long as a god-like creature lives – possibly forever. This would go against Asriel’s character. It would be living at the expense of others. Asriel, who refused to kill the villagers at the cost of his life, is above taking others’ lives for his own.

You wandered around Queens, hoping for anything to get you a passing grade in photography. Maybe your teacher, Mr. Nichols, would be a more lenient if “Perfect Peter Parker” turned in one bad photo. No, every single one of his pictures was an awesome shot from an interesting angle. Most were from impossible heights. How could you compete? But, of course Peter set the standard.

It was past midnight, and you were hoping for some human interest. Unfortunately, most “human interest” out at this hour was a bit… sketchy. So far more than six people had asked you for money, and you’d quickly jogged past too many dark alleys with ominous sounds of drug deals and drunk men at the end.

Blaire White Vs. Onision

I knew Greg would show up in some kind of “outfit.” The blood on the face counts. 

The first thing he brings up is the picture Blaire drew of her and Greg “Having sex” you can’t really see anything. But you take away from it that she’s butt fucking him. I don’t find those kinds of pictures funny but it was clearly a joke and to get under Greg’s skin which it did. He states that rape is not funny. Yet he has made rape jokes before and has admitted they are funny. He has also shown photoshopped pictures of him and Dan that were about equal with Blaire’s drawing. He also brings up her getting banned from Twitter over this drawing like somehow that proves it was so awful. I’ve been banned from twitter for literally saying, “You two are playing stupid to this situation.” The word stupid directed at someone got me banned.

He brings up the picture again later in the debate trying to ask if he drew a similar picture would she be more offended by that than by him posting the picture of a 13 year old in her sports bra. He then calls himself a victim to the picture. Again I’ll bring up Dan saying he doesn’t want people to use his or Phil’s name to get attention. So I would think in no  way would he be okay with the photo shopped pictures of him and Greg. And I’m pretty sure Andy wasn’t okay with the whole doll video. Greg does not get to play victim in a situation where he has put others and has been way worse in those situations. 

(He literally asked for pictures and put them in a video. There are worse pictures that are not included in the video.)

She brings up that his channel is hurting and he can’t really get views anymore. And he brings up a video that got a lot of views. It was his video about Shane Dawson’s weight. The only reason it got views was because it was about Shane Dawson. Honey your views don’t count if you’re putting big Youtuber’s names in your titles and talking shit about them.

(Shane Dawson’s Weight (Part 1) 147,708. Goodbye My Old Friend 115,006 (A video about Cyr) They Posted A Drawing of Me Getting R**ed 111,248 (A video about Blaire’s picture.) He has to mention other Youtubers to break 100k. 

He then blames Blaire for him getting called a pedophile. She never stated that he was in fact a pedophile, but that he was a creep for using a 13 year old’s picture. She was in sports bra. And no matter what it’s weird for a 30 year old man to comment on her appearance in any way shape or form. Even if she asked him to. As an adult he knows not to do that. But he still does. It’s inappropriate. 

He also states that there are rules on his website. Like that matters? He used an inappropriate picture of a 13 year old and he put her in a video. He broke his own rules. So now children know that he doesn’t care if the picture goes against the rules it still has a chance of getting noticed.

(Here is a picture where his doesn’t even state rules for the submission. They might have been posted somewhere else. But if you’re going to post about submitting you still post the rules with it.)

Blaire for a split second brought up Shane Dawson and he then said they’ve been emailing for weeks. That doesn’t say what the emails are about or anything so it’s not relevant. Continuously attacking Shane’s weight is wrong. He has struggled his whole life with it. Greg only makes the videos to get the views. His friend is living proof of that. “Billythefridge” is never addressed in Greg’s videos.. It’s because he is irrelevant. He also got very concerned when she said she had heard something about the emails that were being sent between Greg and Shane. 

(Shane clearly has a hard time with his body to talk about his weight is fucked up.)

He literally brought up taking things out of context and saying it’s not honest. All his videos about his debate with Joy, Jeff, Jaclyn, and Richie were all taken out of context. His response to Jaclyn Glenn’s video awhile back where he said she said transwomen aren’t women because she said a man in a dress isn’t a woman was literally taken out of context. He just admitted himself that it is dishonest. 

(Edited video by Greg of the debate. 7minutes 9seconds)

(Full version of the debate. 31minutes 46seconds)

(Pretty sure this is a video of Greg taking Jaclyn out of context.) 

They bring up how old Greg was when he got with Lainey and how old she was. She was a teenager. I think he got with two other teenagers as well. Yes he has dated people who were not teenagers and that’s fine there is no problem. Oh and don’t forget Billie she was a teenager as well. The fact is he was in his mid to late 20′s and now in his 30′s and he is still attracted to teenagers. That’s weird. 

He then brings up the whole, “Everyone lies about their age on the internet thing.” Which he knew she didn’t literally mean everyone. And then she says she only see’s kids defending him or people who do not have full mental capacity. He wanted to use that as something against people with disabilities I just know it. But she didn’t let it happen. He couldn’t have even done that without looking like a hypocrite because he literally calls people retarded and retards all the time. He also brought up at one point that dwarfs are somehow like underdeveloped women. That point was just sad and honestly did not help him in anyway. 

Greg thanks Blaire several times for the debate. I believe he did this for a couple reasons. One he was trying to make himself look better. He can now go back and say, “I was nice to her. I even thanked her for the debate.” At some point he might actually try to edit the debate or at the very least take parts of it out. And he honestly believes that this “debate” will somehow fix his channels. It’s not going to. His channels didn’t die the instant Blaire’s video came out. It was months after that. His channels didn’t die because of her. She informed people of the 13 year old’s picture. But Greg himself killed his channels by only starting drama, and recycling the same shit over and over.

Blaire brought up that he was doing the debate now probably because his channel was dying but not earlier when they were doing fine. He said that wasn’t part of it. But yes it was. He thinks that this debate will somehow save his channels. Blaire hasn’t said much about Greg since the video was posted months ago. He brought it back up after not getting enough drama from other people. He thought this would help him. Bit it hasn’t. I also believe this is why he brought up that “Shane has been emailing him”. I think he is trying to get in a video with Shane to try to become relevant again. Like the first time.

(I’m guessing this was the video she made about him.)

(His views were fine at that time.)

(He started losing views about 3 to 4 months ago.)

And last the fact that he had to look up the definition of collect was a joke. He knows exactly what it means. He did in fact collect the pictures. The pictures are still technically collected because they still remain on his channels in his videos. Greg is a joke. 

naked photo shoot

REQUEST: I have a request! What if the reader is a celebrity and a magazine (vogue, esquire,gq) offers to do a naked photoshoot, so seb becomes kinda jealous and overprotective so they fight.  

WARNINGS: language, my friends.  

AUTHOR’S NOTE: now in no way do i think sebastian would be unsupportive, let alone get jealous or overprotective if his s.o. was offered an opportunity of a life time. so with that out of the way, enjoy!  


Sebastian slammed the front door after he let you walk in. You had mentioned it over dinner and he got jealous.  

“What the hell?” You scoffed. “You could be supportive of me! It’s fucking Vogue!”  

“I don’t care what fucking magazine it is!”  

“I don’t see what the problem is!”  

Sebastian huffed out a breath he didn’t even notice he was holding while he angrily kicked off his shoes. “Funny,” he said dryly. “Didn’t you react the same way when I told you I had a sex scene for the one movie?”

Hey, everyone! I recently hit 100 followers! I’ve had this blog since January and even though I had a rough start and I wanted to leave a few times, I’m very glad I pushed through. I wanted to save a follow forever for another milestone and just do a drabble game for this one but there are so many amazing blogs a wanted to thank. I really appreciate every single one of you guys. This blog has been a safe haven for me, and I can’t imagine how my life would be without it. I’ve felt much more loved on this blog in the short time I’ve had it than on my previous blog, which I had for 2 and half years before I left. Even though this blog may be considered ‘small’ to some people (not that it matters to me), I still feel as if I genuinely matter to all of you, and I can’t thank you enough. I will never be able to fully express my gratitude. I really do care about all of you. All the users that show up under my followers are my friends, and I care about each one of you so much. Thank you all so much for all that you’ve done for me. I’m beyond grateful.

Office Cohorts

fluff // There’s trouble bubbling up at work

With a screech, the chair in front of you was pulled up. You kept your face pointed down at your laptop, but your eyes didn’t dare take themselves away from the intruder who’d now sat down and placed his files and cup down. You waited for him to say something, better yet, stand up and sit at the other empty tables.

“Do you mind if I sit here?” He asked.

You inwardly scoffed. What was the point in asking when he’d already become well acquainted with the seat?

“Sure.” You finally said.

anonymous asked:

hey! this might seem like an odd question but can I ask how you design your outfits/armor designs? whenever i try to design something for a character it kinda comes out simple, or is similar to other designs i've made in the past and i was wondering if you had any other tips ^_^ (also, i absolutely adore you're hq!! fantasy au and i can't wait for another update X3 )

Hey there Anon! :) I’m sure your work is fantastic! Just brainstorming and trying new things (even if you think it turns out too similar or simple) is always a good thing! Tbh I’m not really experienced in concept design and I don’t find my work to look very skilled haha but here’s a couple things I do when doing these kinds of drawings. First, I think it’s good to grab as many reference photos as you feel you need. For Ushijima’s (shiratorizawa) armor outfit I was looking at a lot of ancient Greek armor. What I did was take the general shape of the armors in the pictures and elaborated on it. It is VERY helpful (at least for me) to have a “base” for your designs that you can start with so that it’s easier to add in detail and embellishments. It also helps you understand how clothes/armor fits. I struggle a lot with making armor look like it’s wearable with room for the bending of elbows and knees, so I try to take time to figure out how the armor is being worn and what pieces are separate from the others. Second, when trying to think of something new, I like to try and think in shapes. Like Ushijima’s is very round and circular but Iwa’s is very sharp and diamond shaped. It’s easier for me to make something more detailed when I have a basic shape that applies to the whole outfit: if I wanted to add designs on the fabric for Ushijima, it would probably be a lot of curved lines and circular designs. Lastly, reference, reference, reference. On clothes and armor around the world. You won’t find a better inspiration than real life designs! It’s not like you have to copy it, just observe it and maybe take aspects of what you’re seeing, such as a cloth wrapped on one side of the body, or a utility belt/strap that goes around the waist and over the shoulder. And there’s nothing wrong with not liking the design you make at first <3 just keep sketching over and over and don’t give up! And have fun experimenting with different things ~ Sorry for the long ramble hahah

Answering other ASKS here (it’s gonna be a long one… lol):

Hi there! Hmm drawing technique… I would define it as HOW you draw something. Or HOW you use your choice of medium to draw/paint. For example, if you use pencil/pen, there’s something called stippling, which is a bunch of dots to create an illusion of shading. Stippling is a technique you use to draw with the pencil/pen. Same with cross hatching. You can’t really have a drawing technique, as it is something used by a lot of people. But you can USE technique and HAVE a personal style, which is the end result of you using technique. If that makes sense? Ahhh I hope this helped at least a little ;__; That was a hard question haha I had to think about this quite a bit XD

Hi @plants-blooms! Thank you so much! Ohhh another hard Q hahah. I agree it can be hard to achieve a natural look on photoshop. I think it really comes down to your choice of brush and your understanding of light and color on hair. 

I did this super quick and messily but I think it gets across the impact of using different brushes while drawing the same thing. It’s very important to know what kind of look you are going for and brushes factor a lot into it. And then there’s color and light. I think the best way to do realistic, natural looking hair is to observe real life and understand how the environment interacts with it (careful though since there are a lot of different types of hair). The amount of light a person’s hair is exposed to affects it’s color; not painting it in the right shade when the environment is really dark or really light can throw off its realism. Also, you don’t HAVE to emulate real hair and draw every single strand. If you understand all that light/color business, you can actually draw very simply and it will still look realistic. I’d like to point you towards WLOP’s work <3 their work IS detailed but it’s also a combo of specific brushes and an amazing understanding of light. And Wlop’s painting tutorial HERE. In general make sure to practice by observing portrait photos (perhaps flickr) or just creep on people in real life hehe

Haha hi there ~ Ahh thank you so much >///< yes that is me! *cough* Butiwaswearingalotofmakeupinthatreferencephotolmao *cough*

Ahh thank you so much @ichigodaisuki! <3 The small square above the nano is a very lazy and quick attempt to draw 3DS game cards hahah. It’s Fire Emblem Awakening and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire XDD and it’s completely illegible hahaha

Hi there, Anon! <3 Ohhh this question haha. I’ve been following figure skating since, I think, Kristi Yamaguchi in the 1990s (she was so good). I’ve also loved animation since I was little. The problem is I’m VERY VERY picky about the shows that I choose to watch, so I decided to keep tabs on anime studios based on the number of shows they’ve made that I enjoyed. MAPPA has been on my list since Sakamichi no Apollon and Zankyou no Terror (both are extremely beautiful, mature shows btw if you haven’t seen them), so when I heard they were going to make an original FIGURE SKATING show… I was all in. I think I was waiting for Yuri on Ice for over a year because the trailer came out 10 months ago and the announcement was a while before that. 

Anyways YES I loved the show, however it is not in my top favorites list (weird I know haha I’m sorry). But while I had issues with the character development and the animation, this show NAILED the main three. I could draw Yuuri, Victor, and Yurio all day! I think those guys were what made me love YOI, especially the relatable personality and character progress of Yuuri. Really wish there was more on Victor though, considering how significant of a character he is.

Ohhh Anon ~ If you want to watch something you should do it! Not being an artist or a reviewer should never stop you from watching a tv show, or doing anything for that matter <3 be yourself. Anyone who doesn’t want to talk to you because they think you’re “untalented” is a jerk and not worth your time anyways! The YOI community on here has been very friendly and welcoming, so don’t be afraid! Please take care and think higher of yourself ~ Have more confidence <3

Hello there Anon! Oh my goodness thank you so much! >////< And of course that’s totally ok with me! <3 ahhhh thank you so much for your support and I’m so honored you want to try and cosplay the design! I would LOVE to see it when it’s done if that’s alright with you?? *o*

Hi there Anon! Thank you so much and thank you for the interest! <3 There is only ONE king/queen at a time, but they are chosen by both of the two clans together and that person can be from either clan. Tsukki is definitely moon clan along with Asahi, Kiyoko, and Suga. Noya, Tanaka, Daichi, Yachi and Hinata are sun. I’m struggling with Yamaguchi, Takeda, Ukai and the rest… Kageyama is actually from Seijou and was banished to Karasuno and takes over as a dictator, sort of. So he has some work to do haha. Here’s the crests but they’re subject to change considering how fast and sloppy I did them LOL:

@fuckdin Of course. To both. Hehehe. But seriously yes, I definitely plan to draw more of the fantasy AU. It’s getting to the point where I want to draw all the characters and all the outfits and all the locations. And I have no time. It’s baaaaad hahah. But in terms of Iwaoi, their relationship in this AU is a bit… angsty. Mutual. But angsty… Soon. I’ll draw more soon!

・☆・☆・☆・☆・☆・☆・☆・

Thank you to everyone who sent in ASKS! I have a few unanswered ones because this post turned out rather long haha. I’ll get to those when I can. And I’ll pm replies to the non-answer ASKS assuming you are not anonymous :)) Take care all! Have a great week <3 and a little iwaoi heh

Hufflepuff!Joshua and Slytherin!Jihoon Hogwarts Headcanons

A/N: I’m sorry it took forever but I finished it and I love both of these boys so much.


HUFFLEPUFF!JOSHUA:

•literally the sweetest boi, I cri
•When he was put in Hufflepuff no one was surprised because he spent the whole train ride there being his gentlemanly self
•Helping people with their luggage if he saw them struggling or having a hard time carrying their things
•Holding doors for everyone- the ladies and  gentlemen
•Bc let’s be real Joshua Hong don’t care about your gender he just wants you to be happy and comfortable
•The lady with the snack cart rolls around to his section of the train and asks if he wants to buy anything
•And he’s like “oh no thank you, but hi what’s your name”
•Cue Joshua befriending the lady and learning her life story and the names of her 6 kids
•The lady is like “can I give an award to your parents for raising you to be this way”
•And Joshua is like !!! “My parents are great I’ll tell you why!”
•He tells the lady everything about his family and is so happy and  enthusiastic and the woman is almost in tears she’s so touched
•She’s all “if you need anYTHinG don’t hesitate to find me”
•She low key leaves him a bunch of snacks without charging him
•And he’s like “oh she must’ve left these, how nice” and shares with the other students around him and adfghjk  can you tell I love Joshua Hong because I do like who doesn’t
•I stg it’s impossible not to love him
•BUT ANYWAY
•FLASH TF FORWARD
•You know he’s one of the Prefects for Hufflepuff because like who else is more qualified? Soonyoung? No ma'am. Not unless we want a dance party every time people are trying to study in the commons room.
•Is really helpful and caring over the younger students and if he sees they’re getting frustrated/sad/homesick, he’ll just go full out dorky and get them to laugh
•Student: *is sad*
•Joshua: “Wanna see how high I can sing?” *SCREAMS*
•Student: *not breathing enough because of how hard they’re laughing*
•If anyone questions his prefect method of handling things (which is usually in a casual and memey way) he’s just responds like “well it’s a good thing they didn’t make you prefect, you obviously have no idea what you’re doing”
•*air horn noise x1000* KILL EM JOSH
•if he’s really worn out or just generally feeling down after a long day, he’ll go to his bed and slide his guitar out from the space under his bed frame and play really relaxing and beautiful melodies and sing along
•And EVERYONE KNOWS JOSHUA DOES THIS BC IF YOU HEARD THIS ANGEL DO MUSIC THINGS WOULD YOU KEEP QUIET? nope
•So if someone hears Joshua playing in his dorm room from the commons room it’ll be a chorus of shuffling and whispers of “he’s playing again! Everyone hush and listen!” Until everyone literally stops what they’re doing to listen to his beautiful voice and rhythmic guitar playing.
•Joshua wonders why he finds most of the Hufflepuff kids asleep in the commons room the next morning like “how did you all manage to fall asleep here?? Why wouldn’t you go to bed?”
•And Seungkwan and Hoshi are all “wELL yOU know these couches are so comfy ahaha”
•And Joshua is just like “ …k good to know”
•Everyone knows that if Joshua is ever up late playing pretty music it’s because he’s feeling down so they make like an organized system so that the next day, everyone is nice to him and only good things happen.
•Someone’s clumsy owl is flying straight for Joshua? Hoshi jumps and grabs it out of the air and then runs tf away so Joshua doesn’t notice anything happened.
•Some jerk looks like they’re about to start a fight with him? Seungkwan “accidentally” drops a vial of newts urine on the jerk.
•Seungkwan: *hair flips* “hmm… sorry bout that” *walks away*
•Joshua: “??? Are you okay? Let me help you”
•Joshua would literally help the guy clean himself up OBLIVIOUS TO THE GUY’S ILL INTENTIONS TOWARDS HIM and the guy would be like “WHY DID I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THIS ANGEL, I MUST PROTECT HIM”
•And this is how everyone comes to love Joshua
•Because how can you not?
•ALSO
•Joshua was talking with some random Hufflepuff kiddo about Naruto and a pureblood Hufflepuff walked by and was like “wtf is a naruto”
•And joshua was like “bro its an anime how do you not know this”
•And then the pureblood kid was like “wait what is anime?”
•Joshua immediately calls for a Hufflepuff house meeting
•“Okay guys it’s come to my attention that some of us aren’t aware of a certain reALLY awESoME thing called anime so we’re gonna have a marathon of a handful of them. I chose Fairytail, One Piece, and Haikyuu for tonight, let’s do it!”
•Half the kids are like “hECK YES”, and the other half are like “??? If it makes Joshua happy then sure I’ll stay”
•Some kid: “what about Yuri On Ice??”
•Joshua: “what ABOUT Yuri On Ice?”
•Another kid: “wait doesn’t Jeonghan kind of look like Victor?”
•Joshua: “omg, you’re right. no one tell him about it but let’s Photoshop his face onto Victor and fill his dorm with copies of it”
•The kids: “Joshua aren’t you supposed to be nice”
•Joshua: “I’m nice to you now hush Natsu is about to breathe fire”
•A couple of days later Ravenclaw!Jeonghan (at this point in time his hair is dyed silver and is longer like in the Mansae era) storms up to the Hufflepuff dorms with hands full of crumpled Victor posters, demanding to see Joshua
•Joshua is just like “oh it must’ve been one of your ravenclaw kids, us Hufflepuffs know not to start trouble”
•Jeonghan: “what do you mean you don’t start trouble, you have Seungkwan and Soonyoung in your house”
•Seungkwan: “LISTEN VICTOR GO BACK TO YOUR DORM”
•Jeonghan dyed his hair black and cut it shorter the next day
•All the Hufflepuffs were snickering and Joshua was like “doN’t make fun of him”
•Joshua: “hey Jeonghan nice hair” *knowing smirk*
•Moral of the story, everyone just wants this memey boy to be happy and loved, and he definitely is. Even by Jeonghan.

SLYTHERIN!JIHOON

•don’t make fun of his height unless you want to be hexed.
•Literally the other Slytherins call him “Prince of Hexing”
•He really likes hexes the best because they’re worse than jinxes but not at bad as curses
•They’re just the right amount of “don’t fuck with me, I dare you”
•Is also a prefect like Joshua,  but more because he’s really smart and good at handling situations that require leadership (like who could be the leader of a subunit with memes like Seungkwan and DK and not be a good leader smh)
•The other houses are like “woah this guy is hardcore”
•But his Slytherin kids know he’s a softie :)))
•Jihoon: “hey quit running in the hallway, who do you think you are”
•Actual translation of his emotions: “don’t run in the hall because someone’s gonna get hurt and I’ll be upset if you guys are in pain”
•He’s soft. But disguises it well.
•NO ONE TELLS HIM THAT HE’S SOFT UNLESS THEY WANNA BE HEXED THO LMAO
•Unless you’re like already good friends with him and just picking fun at each other and are like “aww you’re a cutie, ya know”
•Jihoon’s cheeks will flush brighter than a tomato
•Also the sleeves of his robes are a lil too long for his arms so he has constant sweater paws and it’s the cutest thing
•I’m not saying that he has a prank war with Gryffindor!Seungcheol but that’s exactly what I’m saying
•All the stereotypical negativity between Slytherins and Gryffindors has been channeled into pranking each other.
•For the most part it’s Slytherins Jihoon, Jun, Minghao, and Chan vs. Gryffindors Seungcheol, Vernon, and Mingyu.
•This war was initiated in the dining hall on one fine day *ba dum tss*
•Seungcheol may or may not have slipped a love potion into Jihoon’s drink (literally just for shits and giggles like he had no real reason to, he just wanted to see what would happen)
•the next person to go talk to Jihoon was Hufflepuff!Soonyoung
•Let’s just say that after a very accidentally romantic conversation between the two, that Soonyoung still has a crush on him lol (who wouldn’t)
•Soonyoung: “SEUNGCHEOL THANK YOU”
•Seungcheol: “??? You’re welcome?”
•Meanwhile Jun, Minghao, and Chan who were at the Slytherin table at the time never let Jihoon live it down
•So Jihoon is like “alright revenge time”
•So he plans to hex Seungcheol because like. that’s just what he does, he’s Prince of Hexes.
•He goes to the stadium one day because he left his bag behind when he was leaving quidditch practice (his position on the team is beater) and was like “oh God my homework is in there, what if it rains???”
•What a cute studious boy
•But yeah he’s getting his bag from the stands and thought that no one else was in the stadium but there he is. Choi Seungcheol. Out on his broom practicing (He’s the captain of the Griffindor quidditch team).
•Jihoon is like “welp it’s now or never”
•But he finds himself hesitating.
•he realizes that if he hexes Seungcheol, the role model for the Gryffindor kids, how is that going to reflect on their opinion of Slytherin kids?
•And Jihoon does NOT want anyone fucking around with his kids.
•So instead of putting a painful hex on Seungcheol, he turns Seungcheol’s originally black hair, very very pink.
•And he just leaves the stadium.
•Seungcheol meanwhile has no idea that this has happened, because he’s intensely practicing and there’s no mirrors around because it’s a stadium
•He only finds out when he walks into the Gryffindor commons room, vry tired from practice, and goes up to his dorm which he shares with Mingyu.
•Mingyu sees him and loSES IT
•He can’t even say why he’s laughing because he’s laughing so hard
•Seungcheol is literally about to throw hands when Mingyu just shoves a hand-held mirror in his face
•Seungcheol stops moving and just thinks really hard.
•And he knows that it was Jihoon. he knows in his sOUL that it was Jihoon.
•Mingyu is like “its okay man do you want me to fix it?”
•But Seungcheol is like “no. let’s have the rest of the school see what he did”
•Mingyu: “pffft okay, princess bubblegum”
•Seungcheol: “right back at you, Cheeto”
•Mingyu: :/
•ANYWAY BACK TO JIHOON LMAO
•I got side tracked whoops
•The next day in the dining hall (because yes this is a high school, it’s just for magic and stuff, so like all high school dramas/movies, shit is gonna go down in the caf)
•Seungcheol walks right up the Jihoon who’s sitting at the Slytherin table and is like “like my hair? ;)))”
•Jihoon is like “yeah, it really suits you”
•And Seungcheol
•My boy, Seungcheol
•We know how he gets a lil reckless when he’s competitive
•So Seungcheol says “I’m surprised you could even see the color from all the way down there”
•Before Jihoon can stand up or react or do anything, Seungcheol’s pink hair is covered in an apple pie
•An apple pie that Slytherin!Minghao just happened to be taking to Jun who was sat further down the table
•Jun: *yelling at Minghao in Chinese* “omg my freaking pie!!”
•Minghao: *yelling back in Chinese* “it was fOR A GOOD CAUSE”
•Seungcheol is just standing there. And on the inside he’s thinking “fair move, Slytherin”
•And he just turns and gives Mingyu and Vernon a certain look full of determination and a lil bit of craziness tbh
•they know what Seungcheol wants them to do lmao
•Cue Mingyu’s look of horror and Vernon’s biggest smile
•Vernon stands on the Gryffindor table and yells loud enough for everyone to hear:
•"FOOD FIGHT!!”
•And metaphorically speaking, shit hits the fan. Literally speaking, Minghao is immediately pied in the face by Jun.
•Minghao: *still yelling in Chinese* “WE’RE ON THE SAME SIDE”
•No but forreal everyone in Gryffindor and Slytherin are throwing food across the cafeteria at each other.
•And you know how in the dining hall there’s just four really long tables, one for each house? Well the Slytherin and Gryffindor tables are the outside tables.
•Which means they are throwing food OVER the Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff tables. and a lot of food begins to hit these two houses too
•Jeonghan and Joshua just make eye contact and nod and then everyone is in this fight
•It lasts for about fifteen minutes until the professors can get it under control
•When the professors ask who started it, everyone knows about Seungcheol and Jihoon’s feud, so the finger is pointed at them.
•While sitting in Dumbledore’s study, its dead silent but Jihoon and Seungcheol are shooting glances at each other every couple of seconds
•Until they finally make eye contact and bust out laughing
•“did you see Seungkwan get knocked out of his chair because Vernon threw a whole chicken at him?”
•“Of course but did you see the look on Jeonghan’s face when Wonwoo smeared peanut butter into his hair?”
•Dumbledore walks in and is like “I see you don’t regret your actions, but you’ve made a special bond with one another, so I’ll let you off the hook this time around”
•Seungcheol: “wow, really?”
•Dumbledore: “lol no, you two get to clean up the whole dining hall, without using magic. But that’ll give you two more time to get to know one another and realize you’re more similar than you think”
•So Jihoon and Seungcheol spend the whole night cleaning, but they also talk the whole time, too.
•By the end of the night it’s like they’ve know each other their entire lives.
•The next day, Jihoon sees Seungcheol in the dining hall and smiles at him and everyone is like “…what. Jihoon just smiled at someone. and it was seuNGCHeoL. Are they friends now?”
•But everyone just goes along with it and no one holds any grudges.
•Except for Minghao @Jun lmao

Hey, I really want to get into art but I seriously don't know how to draw a body? The stick figure just isn't working for me, do you maybe know another way or maybe tips?

so quick disclaimer before i start: i decided to do the female body because i learned how to draw women before i started drawing men… and im also a woman LOL so i have a better idea of how to break down each body part… also curves are really fun to draw!! whereas men im still trying to figure out what goes where

i also think its easier to start off with women and then transition into drawing men? at least that’s what i find… so if anyone wants a follow up tutorial on men just let me know! 


i think when it comes to drawing bodies, i find that it’s a lot easier if you imagine shapes first

by recognizing certain body parts as shapes you can sort of configure a guideline first in the pose and proportions you want first before adding any details

for example this is how i would plan out a (very skinny lol) female body before starting

so in red is my actual organic process, which is really quick and fluid and then in black is just a more defined demo of the shapes i have in mind 

one of the biggest problems i see for people starting out drawing bodies is that they’re so caught up trying to get every detail correct, by the time they’re finished the proportions are all off… so by planning the shapes first i can ensure i have every part the correct length and width i want

ok again this is going to be a really long post so more details on each body part under the cut!

Drawn That Way

So I started this fic a loooooong time ago.  Some time after Age of Ultron came out, which is the timeline for the fic as well, if you’re wondering.  Then it wasn’t going so well and I was writing other things for fests that were more time sensitive, and it got sidelined for a bit.  Then it spent an even longer time sitting in my notebook only half typed, because I was lazy and didn’t want to type anything.  But it’s done now, and beta’ed, so here you have it.

This really started from a post I remember seeing somewhere around the time I was first getting into the marvel fandom, of an artist complaining about how fic writers always have Steve drawing on paper, when so many artists now use a digital medium.  And Steve, while old fashioned, does pick up on technology pretty quick.  I have no idea who originally posted it, but artist, here is a fic for you of Steve using a tablet to draw.  Really though, this fic is for all the fanartists on tumblr, because you guys deserve lots of love.  Also, it’s for my followers who for some reason, stuck around this long.  Thanks for staying.

Thanks to @canolacrush for the beta, who tells me this is almost, but not quite, a character study.  No real warnings on this one, aside from Steve finding out about tumblr, the hard way sometimes.

Hi. I really like to draw and I want to learn how to do fanarts/digital drawings/etc... Can you give me any tips? Did you made any art course/degreed?

Hi there Anon, yes I did graduate with an Art degree! As for digital drawing tips (you may take anything I say with a grain of salt, I’m still learning too haha), I’d say start by getting used to taking advantage of “layers.” With, I think, most digital drawing tools like Paint Tool SAI, Photoshop, Corel Painter, and more, you can draw on individual layers stacked on top of each other therefore making it very easy to do line art on one layer and color on another. This lets you not mess up your lineart/guide while coloring or vise versa. ALSO, because it’s so easy to fix/adjust your drawing on the computer, make sure to experiment with different brushes and textures! What’s nice about digital drawing is that you can easily jump from an oil painting brush to pencil to marker depending on the style you want. But it’s good to always keep practicing with traditional mediums as well. You pretty much translate everything you learn about drawing and painting by hand to a digital software, which imitates traditional tools but adds “quick and efficient” methods to adjust and enhance your drawing. Since you mentioned you like to draw I’m sure you will have no problems transitioning into digital :) just take your time and play around with all the tools and brushes so you can get a better understanding of how the software works (I’m not sure which one you are planning to use?). Good luck! I’m sure you’ll do fine ~ I apologize if this wasn’t extremely helpful ;A; I really can only recommend you to try everything and to always keep doing traditional drawings as well.

Answering all ASKS (in a batch again ahhhh) here! 

Hi there guys! @masovince @you-can-be-yourself Reposting anywhere that isn’t Tumblr or DeviantArt is 100% ok with me so long as there are credits (´。• ᵕ •。`) ♡ As for proper crediting, I think I would prefer if you included a direct link to my tumblr or deviantart so that there’s a connection to my accounts <3 thanks so much, it’s not a stupid question at all! And thank you guys for asking! 

HEH. LONG HAIRED YUURI IS MY NEW THING. hahah thank you Anon <3

Hey there! I use Photoshop ~ and oh man brushes. This is hard because I modify them so much from the originals. The base brushes I used are the standard default ones that are already in Photoshop5 but also a couple from Darek Zabrocki (http://daroz.deviantart.com/art/FREE-PHOTOSHOP-BRUSHES-DAREK-ZABROCKI-BRUSH-SET-431393487) and Aaron Griffin’s (http://aarongriffinart.deviantart.com/art/BRUSHES-609357781) free brush sets. 

Ahhh thank you so much, Anon! ;A;

Oh my ~ thank you so much >///< it makes me so happy to hear you like my drawing enough to set it as a wallpaper !

@takaratime Ahhh thank you so much for your kind comment! I’ll keep working hard ( ´ ∀ `)ノ~ ♡

@andifbyyes (⁄ ⁄•⁄ω⁄•⁄ ⁄) Omg you’re too nice! Thank you so much ahhh! I’m so glad you like those pieces and noticed the little details and everything. I think one of the things I appreciated the most about YOI was how human the characters, and especially Yuuri, were. I always aspire to properly translate that into my fanart so it makes my day to read your comment ;__; thank you again <3

@luchile Hey there! Thank you so much <3 and ahhh thank you for your interest in my drawings! Unfortunately I do not have a shop set up. I never really draw fanart with the intention of selling them, but I’ve had quite a few people ask about this now so I may possibly open a print shop/commissions in the future :)) I will let you know!

@rennomus Ahhh thank you so much! >///< I might one day continue it but considering that I’d want to color every panel it might… be a while.. hahaha. And as for the Yule Ball idea, 46Gohan already drew them dancing together <3 and it was actually that drawing that inspired me so much. It’s so lovely and endearing! Please go check it out http://46gohan.tumblr.com/post/153315272616/so-ive-been-rewatching-the-hp-series-lately-and

@vergoftowels Ohhh yeah. That happens. And I guess there’s only so much one can do about reposts. Tumblr still hasn’t gotten back to me about the first one… lol. But thank you for letting me know :) I hope you have a great rest of your week ~

@foxnewsanchor Hi there! Ohhh man I’ve really seriously been wanting to participate in a zine (especially a YOI one) for a long time but I honestly don’t know if I have the time to commit to one. My online courses start in less than a month and I’m not sure how much time I will have to draw new YOI fanart. 
。゚・ (>﹏<) ・゚。 BUT thank you so much for the offer! I’m sure your zine will go well!

@ichigokeks Nooo omg thank YOU so much ahhh! (ಥ﹏ಥ) It’s really the greatest thing to hear that my drawings give other people joy. I’m so happy you like them, thank you again for your kind words, and I will keep practicing hard! <3 Much love!

@scarilypsycho *stalks you back* Ahhhh your comment makes me so happy! ;___; It is the biggest compliment to hear when your work affects people. Emotional atmosphere is something that I struggle with all the time so reading this gave me such a boost of energy <3 thank you so much!

☆*:.。.o(≧▽≦)o.。.:*☆

Thank you to everyone who sent in ASKS! Also for future reference (and I’m so sorry about this) I will NOT be answering any more asks that are not a question, BUT I will respond via private message if you are not anonymous! :) You guys send in the sweetest comments and it makes my day to read them, but it’s just really hard doing screenshots over and over and then manually cutting out asks to do this in batches haha

I hope everyone had a fantastic new years ~ I’m super excited for my online courses to start! Have a few personal projects coming up too. Dabbling in animation lately so I MIGHT… Have something fun for ya’ll in the future depending on how it goes hehe. As for YOI week… Here’s what I’ll probably be doing next week lol.

5 little known facts about [Growing Up Aspie]

1. The idea for [Growing Up Aspie] came from two comics I created after my second diagnosis as an adult to try and explain my feelings as an Autistic person.

“Aspie Cockpit” showing the complex controls of everything involved in pretending to be Neurotypical, and “A Wolf Amongst Dogs” about being extremely similar to Neurotypicals but still feared, and viewed as “strange” and “dangerous” mirroring my own experiences.

(My original diagnosis was around my childhood/teenage years but was ignored and not really understood.)

2. The ghostly/alien faces of the “others” came to be when I was working on my first [Growing Up Aspie] comic. While sketching the “other” person, I saw the limited details I sketched for his face, and it just clicked.

I realized that it could represent my mild face blindness, and the feeling of fear, and confusion we get like we are living on an alien planet surrounded by what seems to be its true inhabitants while showing Autistics, and Neurotypicals alike that we aren’t the only “weird ones.”

3. The three ways I have used to create my comics are the Sketchbook Pro app on the Note 3, Photoshop on the Surface Pro 3, and the Sketchbook Pro app on the Note 4. In both the Note 3 and 4’s case, I usually finish in Photoshop to add details.

4. The different art styles used in each comic are meant to show the lack of stability in my everyday life that as an Autistic person who craves routine is often deprived of. You can often tell by the art style what emotion I experienced that particular story.

5. With the right support, I plan to create [Growing Up Aspie] comics, animations, video games, and more full-time by telling my stories, as well as those of female, and LGBTQ Autistics as well as those of Autistic people from other cultures. If you would like to help me get there, you can pledge your support on PATREON.COM/IRISHWOLFPRODUCTIONS and continue to like, comment, and share my work.

Thanks for your support!

Photo shoot Ready: Tom Holland x Black Actress

Requested: Tom and Reader are called to do a couples photo shoot and interview for Vogue. Tom is a bit nervous because he believes the photo shoot is a bit risque. 

You walked hand in hand with Tom on the set of the photo shoot. It was 3 in the morning and the shoot would last nearly all day. 

When Vogue called you two, you were a bit worried- You and Tom’s relationship had lasted for nearly 6 years because of how private you were. Both of you felt like a photoshoot of some sort was like bragging and that it made your relationship seem very staged. But after a long discussion with To and both of your teams, you all agreed. 

You saw your reflection in the dressing room mirror, “Yikes.” You had on one of Tom’s hats and you looked tired, very tired. Tom had his own separate dressing room along with all of the clothes he was to wear. 

You checked out the costumes and a few of the pieces, some were nearly just pieces of cloth. Tom was a bit anxious about the whole theme it was supposed to be modern day Bonnie & Clyde. He didn’t want everybody seeing you naked but he knew that was a part of the job. 

Haz was by his friends side looking through his clothes. “This leather jacket is sick!” Haz said taking it off the rack. “Yeah, I wonder what they have Y/N wearing?”

“Mate, it’s going to fine.” Haz laughed. His style team came walking through the door, “Alright T, you ready?” 

“Yeah.”

Thank you so much you both! <3 But I suck so bad at drawing tutorials as I don’t even know how to make one. Believe me, I tried. I just tell someone you just open a blank canvas on photoshop and draw something you love. Which, I know, isn’t very helpful. But that’s how it’s always been for me. For more blabbering about art stuff, do continue. If not, just ignore. :D

WOW I MADE A TUTORIAL WITH A PRETTY LONG INTRO. :|

Title: More to Love
Request: “can you do a Crowley x reader oneshot where the reader is really self conscious and insecure with her stretch marks and curves and Crowley helps her feel better with lots of fluff and kisses?:)” - Anon
Pairing: Crowley x Reader
Words: 1,092
Warnings: self-hate, low self-esteem, fluff?

“Well, that sucked,” you sighed, falling face first onto your bed.

It had been a very unsuccessful day of shopping, more specifically, swimsuit shopping. You already hated this time of year, since you couldn’t hide yourself under your sweaters or coats unless you wanted to risk heatstroke. Granted, you could still find a loose fitting shirt or dresses that completed your curves, but with a swimsuit, there was no hiding.

Every curve was amplified by the form fitting fabric, not to mention most places only had suits that would fit much smaller girls. Bikinis were all string, and showed too much skin for you to feel comfortable. A one piece either looked too old or was cut in a weird way that showed off the stretch marks you’d rather hide, and you didn’t even wanna think about the tankinis.

And the worst part was you had even tried the plus sized stores as well, but most of those were too big. Nothing fit. You must have tired at least a dozen stores and nothing made you look the way you wanted. You groaned into your pillow, just wanting today to be over with, not wanting to think about those stupid swimsuits any more.

“Hello darling.”

“JESUS CHRIST!” You jumped at the sudden voice and fell off your bed.

“Quite the opposite I’m afraid,” chuckled the King of Hell himself offering you a hand to help you to your feet.

“Damnit Crowley, don’t scare me like that,” you clutched your chest. “You almost gave me a damn heart attack.”

“Not my intention, I assure you,” he grinned as you let out a sigh, and sat down on the edge of the bed.

“What do you want, Crowley?” asking as you rubbed your temples.

“Moose told me you had been shopping today for a swimsuit. I couldn’t resist the chance of see you model a few,” he said coyly.

“Yeah, well, you’re out of luck,” you looked away from Crowley, not wanting to talk about the failure of a shopping trip you had just been on. ‘Note to self, kick Sam’s ass later,’ you thought.

“Yes, I did notice the lack of bags,” he said while looking around your small room. He picked up an old photo of you that was sitting on your dresser and inspected it closely. “When was this taken?”

You looked up to see which picture he was talking about. It was from high school, years before you had met the boys and learned the truth of the world that full of things that went bump in the night.

“I was 17, so like 8 years ago.”

“Hmm,” he nodded thoughtfully. “You’ve lost weight since then.”

You had managed to stay away from the hunters life, but that didn’t mean you hadn’t helped out a few times when the need arose. This meant a lot of running and getting a bit more in shape so that you could keep up, and keep from getting yourself killed. But being in shape and being thin were two very different things. You were healthy, no medical problems to speak of, and you had more endurance than most people, but that didn’t seem to help much.

“Not enough though,” you muttered, mostly to yourself, absentmindedly poking at your stomach. An action the king did not fail to notice, and caused him to quirk an eyebrow.

“Something on your mind, Dove?” He put the picture down and sat next to you on the bed.

“It’s nothing.”

“You’re a very bad liar…”

You sighed yet again, you had been doing a lot of that today, and looked over at Crowley. You were surprised to see his brow knitted in concern as he look back at you. He placed a hand on your knee, in comfort and tilted his head as an invitation to tell him what was going through your mind.

“I just hate…this,” you said, gesturing to your body. “No matter what I do, I just don’t look…right, I guess.”

“You humans, always concerned about looking the ‘right’ way,” Crowley shook his head. “Don’t you lot get it yet? There is no ‘right’ way.”

“Easy for you to say, you can look however you want by possessing a different person,” you grumbled. Of course he wouldn’t get it, Crowley hadn’t been human in hundreds of years, you shouldn’t have expected sympathy.

“And yet, you don’t see me hoping from meat suit to meat suit. Because I don’t bloody care,” he said sternly. “Neither should you. Bollocks to the sods who say otherwise.”

“Except those ‘sods’ are the ones who basically dictate the entire population’s perspective on how a person should look,” you thought back to all the pictures of models in swimsuits you had seen earlier.

If trying them on hadn’t brought down your already low self-esteem, the photos certainly had. Sure, you knew full well that most of them were photoshopped to shit, and that no real person actually looked that way, but it didn’t help. After being told so many times one thing, you can’t help but to start believing it yourself even if you knew deep down that it wasn’t true.

“If it bothers you that much, we can make a deal.”

“Excuse me?!” you looked at the demon king, horrified.

“It was a joke,” he sighed.

“A pretty bad one if you ask me…” you looked down again, wishing this conversation would just end.

“Y/N. Look at me,” Crowley placed a hand under your chin and you met his eyes. “There is nothing wrong with you. I have seen ugly and horrible things, I’m a bloody demon for hell’s sake. And compared to everything I see on a daily basis, you are stunning.”

You felt tears prick your eyes. This was definitely not what you had expected him to say, and it stunned you that there was such sincerity in his voice.

“You don’t need to change anything about the way you look, because it means there is more of you to love,” he grinned, having used the cheesy line. But what you had picked up on was that last word, love.

“Did you just…use the ‘L word’?”

“Did you not hear me right the first time? Yes, Y/N, love,” he kissed your forehead gently.

Tears now escaped your eyes, but they were ones of joy, not sadness. Crowley wiped them away and gave you a true smile, not one of his scheming ones, but one you rarely saw.

“Thanks Crowley, for everything.”

“Anytime, Dove.”

Imagine this au 'the one where you don'y know your soulmate(s) until you hear them speak, or hear them speak a certain word; your name, for example' with bellamy knowing clarke is his soulmate but refusing to use her name - calling her princess all the time - because he doesn't want her to know and one day he half says her name and she feels something weird and then keeps trying to get him to say her name so she knows for real

I’m sorry it took me so long! I hope you like it, though! :))

“Bellamy!”

The hallway is crowded and people are jostling Clarke left and right. That might be due to the fact that she’s not particularly tall but what she lacks for in height, she makes up for in her determination to fight.

And she really, really wants to fight Bellamy fucking Blake who’s pretending like he can’t hear her - five feet away from her.

“Bellamy Blake!”

The thing is, she knows he can hear her. Every time she calls his name, he flinches but keeps going. She sees his messy curls bobbing and if he were any closer, she’d tell him not to give her shit for her height when he can’t even get a hairbrush.

Clarke shoves away a guy who seems like an annoying frat boy and finally - finally - stumbles onto Bellamy, not caring if they fall down.

He turns around in a beat, hands pressing at her waist to keep her steady, and smirking. “I told you you’re too tiny for big crowds.”

Clarke shoots him a glare, gathering her books before they spill all over the floor. She hates pre-med, she hates university, and being a stripper seems like a decent career choice.

She also hates that smug asshole grinning at her just because he’s slightly taller than her.

“Don’t mess with me, Blake.”

“What are you gonna do, Princess?” He scoffs. “Bite my ankles?”

Clarke inhales sharply, clinging onto her sanity - the same one that’s dangling on the last thread now.

The thing is - she doesn’t know what Bellamy’s problem is. She was nice to him when they first met, they never really fought about anything (they bicker, but that doesn’t count), they agree about so many things, have fun and he still avoids her like the plague.

Still, she’s here because she needs him to come to Raven’s birthday party. Nothing else. So she sighs, rummaging through her bag until she can come up with a crumpled invite Jasper made. He’s super into Photoshop and graphic design these days.

“You shouldn’t have avoided me,” she tells him, trying to stare him down even though he’s distractingly pretty. “I’m just passing the invite to Raven’s birthday party. It’s this Saturday, you don’t have to bring gifts, just booze.”

The gaze in his eyes turns much softer after the initial shock wears off and it’s like they’re suddenly suspended in time. He isn’t even glaring or scoffing at her. Hell yeah, it’s weird.

“Thank you, Cl- ahem.”

Something stirs in her chest when he nearly says her name and he cuts himself off, startling like a newborn fawn. For a second, they just stare at each other.

But it can’t be.

“Clahem?” she asks, trying for nonchalant even though shivers are still running down her spine and it’s - different.

Bellamy’s hand darts to his hair, long fingers disheveling the messy curls even further. It’s like someone spilled ink all over them, leaving it to drip and form makeshift constellations on his cheeks.

“Thank you,” he repeats, even though he’s averting his gaze and the invite is ridiculously small in his hands. “I’ll be there.”

“Yeah, just, Bellamy - “

Another flinch and then he squares his shoulders. “I gotta go.”

Clarke’s left standing alone in the middle of the hallway like it’s nothing at all. Like Bellamy just didn’t make something flutter in her chest, somewhere disconcertingly close to her heart. 

He’s not her soulmate, obviously. He can’t be. Soulmates happen to other people, people with kind voices who know how to pronounce each other’s names. Who want to do it.

And Bellamy Blake wants nothing to do with Clarke Griffin.

spiffy-space-dragon  asked:

Ah I love your art so much! You're so talented! I have a few (a lot of) questions: What brands of pens and markers do you use? Do you use a scanner and do a lot of lineart on paper or do you use a graphics tablet or a bit of both? Do you use illustrator and photoshop, and if not, what programs or additional ones do you use? Oh, and if you do use a scanner, what make and model is it? Sorry for so many questions, I just want to know how you do your magic!

Thank you for the kind words!  And now…..

HECK.

YES.

It’s gear talk time, @miss-quantico​.  This. Is. Muh. Favrit. TAAAAHHM!  Buckle up, peoples, this one will be lengthy.  I shall endeavor to unravel each mystery as it was presented to me.

I use a lot of them, but I can more or less break them down into two groups.  Group One is Out and About… meaning what I use when I’m out places sketching with buddies and stuff.

Group Two is professional work.

OUT AND ABOUT!!!!!

From left to Right, we have:

  • Copic Multiliner SP. (Whatever size)
  • Micron (whatever size)
  • Zebra Disposable Brush Pen Extra Fine
  • Pentel Pocket Brush Pen XGFKP-A

All of those can be found on your local Jet Pens website.  I experiment a lot when it comes to travel drawing stuff, but these are the tools I come back to time after time.

VERY PROFESH WORK

From Left to Right

  • Deleter Maru (needs cleaning)
  • Kuretake Menso Brush Small (don’t use THAT much but I like it)
  • Raphael 8404 number 3 (I use this almost exclusively)

These are nice tools. They will treat you right. I arrived here after many years of experimenting.  Papers and inks are important too, but you didn’t ask, so I’m not telling you.

I need to stress something here.  The Raphael is expensive… like $25 a brush. IT IS WORTH IT. If you get a brush at Aaron Brothers, or Michaels or whatever cruddy chain art supply store is in your area, you will think brush inking is for dumbdumbs.  Get a real Kolinsky Sable brush (winsor/newton series 7 is good too, but I had one explode on me so I don’t buy them anymore) and practice with it.  If you cheap out on this piece of equipment you will regret it, but it’s not going to solve all of your problems. YOU HAVE TO PRACTICE WITH IT. BUT YOU HAVE TO GET A GOOD ONE.  I believe I have made myself clear.

HANG ON, NO I HAVEN’T MADE MYSELF AS CLEAR AS I COULD HAVE.  ANOTHER THING I NEED TO STRESS: Learn how to take care of, work with and clean your brushes or you just wasted $25. Be good to your brush.

I color with either copics which you’ve probably seen before and watercolors a lot recently. I buy Sennelier watercolors, but you can buy whatever you like. I’m not your mom.

Do I work physical or digital?

Physical if time permits. Digital if I’ve got two weeks to draw an issue (this has happened)

PROGRAMS THAT ARE GOOD TO USE:
- Manga Studio. For my money, it’s the best program for drawing and inking.
- Photoshop. For my money, it’s the best program coloring and painting.

PROGRAMS THAT ARE BAD TO USE:
- Illustrator.

Illustrator is the worst program in the world.  It’s an “art” program for people who don’t know how to draw and don’t want to know. It’s an “art” program for mathematicians. It’s an “art” program that will make you hate the day you decided to become an artist. Illustrator will pull your eyes out of your face and poop in your eyeholes.  Illustrator will break your wrists and laugh at you as you fumble through its menus.  Illustrator will give you migraines (literally. I’ve had two in my life, one was illustrator related). A picture that should take you an hour will take you a day in illustrator.  THAT is the illustrator experience.

I do not like illustrator.

Sometimes clients require you to use Illustrator.

So learn it.

But you can still hate it.

Many moons ago, I beseeched the Art Ancients… pleaded with them for a sign. I was in dire need of a large format scanner and printer such that I might print my blueline onto illustration board at 11x17, and then scan the inked linework at 11x17.

The Art Ancients answered my prayer.

BEHOLD!  THE MONOLITH THAT IS THE BROTHER MFC-J6510DW.

Is it a great printer?
NO!  It kinda sucks.

Is it a great scanner?
NOPE!

Can it fax?
Supposedly! But I’ve never used it.

You don’t seem to like it that much…?
Correct. BUT it does print bluelines and scan inks at 11x17… so it works really well for my purposes.  It was also a birthday gift from my beautiful wife because she knew I needed it, so I love it with all my heart.

Do they still make this printer?
I have zero idea.  Check Staples maybe?

And with that, I believe I have answers all of your questions.  I hope this was helpful and informative.  If you or anyone else ever have any questions, please let me know and I will do my best to answer them in a timely fashion (although that has been difficult recently)

Thanks!!

Byebye!!
