that's how to be creative

I’ve received some messages in the past asking me how do i pick my colors… and i did this in an attemp to explain myself 💦💦 i might have failed.

Well the thing is, i don’t consider myself very good at painting nor i think i use really WOAH AWESOME colors so i get a little lost when asked how do i pick my palettes when really is not rocket science.

My best advice as a person who have no idea what are they doing is to E X P E R IM E N T.

Don’t limit yourself from what you see on the real world. Feel like coloring a girl with blue skin? using pink as a shadow? go for it! try stuff! even if it ends up looking hella weird! at least you tried you know. And tbh is fun.

I guess thats what my “creative process” is all about. How many different ways i can put pink on a drawing Hahaha

i hope yall have a good week🌸 i feel super stupid for doing this hahah!

  • 13 reasons creative team: hey how come no ones ever made a show about suicide where the person who killed themself was TOTALLY right and knew what was best and their decision had the impact they totally wanted it to have?
  • everyone: bc thats not how it works
  • 13 reasons creative team: wow it rly is such a smart well thought out plan and a really good way to get revenge on people who hurt you... it really works...
  • everyone: no it doesnt
  • 13 raisins: high schoolers have it all figured out... they rly know how life works...

And last before the winner’s prices, here’s Ruby Daly cause I just wanted to redraw her so bad!


That’s it. That’s literally all it could have been

the redbirds must have their due. oh you, wicked children who come close to the banks of the river, do you not know what waits for you? do you not hear them coming, wading, reaching out with blood red hands to tear you asunder, to eat you whole? is this not the fate that awaits you for your terrible deeds? the redbirds must eat. they must eat. they must feed.


A couple of years ago, I had a dream about a pretty frightening scenario concerning a race of strange creatures with origami birds for heads called Redbirds, who lived in the water and snatched any children who wandered by to eat them alive. My brain comes up with some pretty cool (but scarily weird) concepts, what can I say!

 I could imagine these origami killers (see what I did there) as a sort of grand antagonist in a short story - perhaps a mother needs to find a way to kill them for good before they set their sights on any other child who comes too close to the water…

I think one of the most beautiful things about writing is that anything can happen.
How to write your book step 209

Rehash old ideas. 

 Is there an idea that you started to write out a while back but it just sort of bled out into nothing?  You never finished it, but it never really went away? It’s still there occasionally popping into your mind, even though you haven’t given it any real thought? It’s totally okay to use that idea. To open it back up. You could completely re write it.  You could incorporate it into whatever you are working on right now. It might not be the best idea  you’ve ever had, but on the other hand, it won’t go away so you might as well put it to use. 

Maybe you’ve completely forgotten about something and then one day you will be rummaging through your old stuff and find a story you wrote in primary school about you and your best friend of the time. Maybe it’s terrible. Maybe it should be left to rot under your bed. Or, maybe, it might be harboring brilliant secrets that one more rewrite will unleash. 

It’s okay to do the same thing over and over again. It’s okay to use the same ideas in different ways. You will get different results each time. Don’t be afraid to look back at your old writing. Just don’t get stuck there forever. 

Reuse, Reduce, Recycle, Rewrite.

I’ve never really been a fan of love triangles, but one thing I loved about JTV’s love triangle is how different each relationship was from one another and I admired the writers for that. Now they’re building up Jafael again (over the cost of killing the man she chose over him countless times / totally erasing her other best friend out of picture) and they’re doing it by recycling villadero’s moments and putting Rafael on scenes he shouldn’t be in.

I am really happy Rafael’s grown (though we didn’t see any of his development and this is such a waste of Justin’s talent and story arc), but Jane saying he is “sort of her best friend” the first episode after Michael’s death, exchanging late phone texts and having weekly family gatherings with him is such a straight-forward copy of villadero’s lines/scenes and it’s cringy to watch.

And that moment when Jane says she can’t read it without breaking down, it really should’ve been Alba the one talking to her because she is the person who gets what Jane’s going through the best. It could’ve been another great Villanueva moment, but instead we’ve barely got to see any of those. 

I totally get that Rafael is part of her family, is a constant presence and they should be friends and I really like that. However, it’s very likely they’re going to bring the romance back and it’s not only insensitive of them to shove down our throats so many J/R moments the first episode after Michael’s death, but it is a little offensive to their fans to literally copy J/M moments. I did enjoy J/R on the first season and could’ve kept supporting it if things had turned out differently, because despite everything, each couple was unique and had its pros and cons. Now it is just likely to be a cheap repetition of the previous relationship and I think every fan deserved better.

That’s How You Know

Sander’s Sides: Roman, Virgil, Patton, Logan
Blurb: Roman is feeling low after not getting a part he auditioned for and desperately wanted.

He shouldn’t be taking the news so hard. It wasn’t like he’d failed to get roles before when he’d gone to the tryouts. But this role. This part. Roman had been so confident that he’d get it. 

Everything in the audition had gone right. He’d had the director laughing. He’d had great chemistry with the people trying out for the other lead role, he’d even gotten multiple callbacks!

It had been one of those moments where he’d felt born to play that part, and had known he was going to get it. So to find out that the lead had gone to another…had been like a slap to the face. 

Roman pulled the collar of his red and white jacket up against the evening breeze that had picked up, shoving his hands deep into his pockets as he paced around the park. He should have been back home a couple of hours ago, but he hadn’t yet been able to bring himself to face the others. To tell them that he hadn’t got the part. He’d talked it up so much, been so confident…to go back and face them and tell them he’d been wrong, that he hadn’t…Roman inhaled raggedly, scrubbing at his burning eyes with the palm of his hand.

How could he face them after this? How? He was a failure. A shining star that had been smothered too quickly it’s light doused almost as soon as it had been lit.

Faintly over the wind, a chime like melody reached Roman’s ears, familiar to him because how could he not recognize a Disney song within two notes of it being played? He kicked at a pebble in the path. “How do I know, you love me?” He sang softly in the following silence, hunching his shoulders, unable to make himself louder because he knew his voice would crack if he did. “How do I know you’re.” His voice cracked anyways. “mine?”

Fanfic Writers

idk how people are able to write such amazing fanfiction
like it’s amazing how they can take someone else’s world, and somehow create something in it that blends perfectly
or take the characters our of the world, and still keep them the same
it’s honestly the coolest thing ever
so hats off to fanfic writers because they’re the most creative people I’ll ever meet

anonymous asked:

I just remembered you were the fist who drew big brother Otabek. I have had this headcanon from the moment I saw Beka and you were my light in the "darkness" (more like rainbow) of the fandom. THANK YOU I LOVE YOU

yeaaaaa i was!!!  i did iT, I DID SOMETHING FIRST!! ! And ikr? he just seems like a really good big brother material?? ? I love otabek so much sjdl;akaa BUT THANK YOUUUUUU I LOVE YOU TOOOO <33

Ima just say it.

People who just paint abstract cartoon characters that already exist onto canvas get all the likes, reposts, followers, and love and get told they’re amazing artists. They get the most buyers.

People who create 100% from their own imagination, or only use other art as inspiration but recreate things with their own twist get looked over for the most part.

Thats why a lot of artists just start making shit people already know and love cause its like thats the only thing that sells. No matter how skilled or talented or creative you are.

Sir, it’s quite possible this release isn’t entirely stable

How do I know this? The first conversation with Theron bugged twice. 

The game wouldn’t let me log back into the instance after I logged out after the second bug.

When I finally did get back in I had to TRANSPORT TO MY SHIP to get out of the instance because the door was broken.

I went back in and the entire game froze and crashed my computer.

I’m PRETTY SURE this all happened because I tried to take Quinn into the instance with me and, let me tell you, Major(ly) Hot Dumpster Fire can smell a poorly-written trap KILOMETERS AWAY.
