Lapis redesign because I dislike her canon one. Specifically because of the fact she doesn’t really have any shapes that really DEFINE her, like Garnet = Squares, Amethyst = Circles, Peridot = Triangles ect, I associated her with a water drop shape cause…. y’know w a t e r.
Also got rid of the horrid neon blue colors and gave her speckles of yellow, like the ACTUAL LAPIS LAZULI GEM HAS. Why didn’t she have any sort of yellow incorporated into her design in the first place.
dear natello, i hate asking this but how did you get popular on tumblr? i mean, besides posting mind blowing art, there's something you did that helped? it's not like getting notes and stuff is a priority for me, but i wish i had more followers to have more feedbacks and more interactions based on my art. much love and thank you in advance :)
Am I popular on tumblr? I don’t think so, I see this a little bit different. Also, you don’t have to explain yourself, feedback is important. Followers and notes are nice when you show your own content, it’s normal. But I’m affraid I didn’t do anything besides posting my drawings. Drawing fanart helps to be noticed, then you can start tormenting people with your original stuff and OCs xD That’s what I do. Idk, it’s hard to say. Some people make giveaways. You can think about some bigger project like a series of drawings (people liked my spell series…) or dunno, something to make people wait for it and be excited about. Also, give feedback yourself! This is how you make friends. (I’m rather terrible at it. I usually message people who don’t have thousands of notes under their drawings but they deserve it, and then run away so they never see my url again xD) If you’re shy you can always put all the love for the art in tags. (I tend to check blogs whose owners leave long tags with their thoughts about my drawings. And if I see they have an art blog I check it too.) But these are natural interactions on social media. If you give some love it comes back to you, right? :) Generally, I feel lucky to have my followers (they are pretty good at cheering me on ;D without them I wouldn’t draw as much). So yup, the most important thing! I wish you a lot of luck!
here’s a quick collection of assorted outfits I associate with the boys. I have been kind of obsessively curating male clothing for like the past year, because I just do that.
Alan’s always had a sort of casually preppy thing going on, in my head. I tend to write/cast him a little older mentally than he probably actually is, and I tend to dress him as though he’s angling towards looking at least a little like a grown-up. also I like to give him hats. little slouchy beanie things.
Gordon’s all nautical stripes and bright colours and floral prints, but also a lot of beachy white and and visible skin. I think he’s also 100% the sort of person who would own and wear a velvet jacket. Gordon + brightly coloured shoes is also one of my favourite things. This is in stark contrast to Nonsense!Gordon, who basically dresses entirely in black at all times.
Virgil is my secret fave. Virgil’s all canvas and denim and worn leather, with occasional woolen sweaters and soft cotton henleys, to serve as reminders that he is Large but also he is a Gentle Soft Boy. I always end up envisioning Virgil with tattoos and piercings and a sort of lumberjack emopunk vibe. No idea why. He snuck a few florals in there too, the sweetheart.
John is actually super difficult for me, because Heavenward!John’s sensibilities have bled all over the way I imagine him in canon. In short, though, his clothing tends to be very cleanly cut and he dresses very neatly. hwd’s influence bleeds through when I end up adding those sorts of vaguely cyberpunk elements, high collars and doubled up layers and that kinda thing. the nerd. i also dress him almost exclusively in grey. in heavenward it’s because of the questionable morality of his actions. otherwise, not sure why.
Scott in my head is always a blend of suits + bomber jackets + aviators + hot farmer’s market dad aesthetic. The latter is hard to pull through, but I feel like in casual settings, entirely accidentally, Scott ends up dressing like the sort of well-to-do suburban dad who owns a minivan and buys fresh heirloom kale and free range eggs every Saturday. Little bit of floral print for Scooter, too.
I landed in Atlanta around 6 last night, my Grandma Nandi had dinner ready and waiting for me. I love this woman I swear. She made a dinner for me on her birthday like who does that? She said it was a celebratory dinner for the both of us. I’m just glad she likes the gifts I bought for her :). I’m planning an actual birthday dinner for her with my aunt, uncle and ousins. Hopefully we can come together and get it done right for Grandma Nandi. This woman is too good! She also told me she got a boy friend now -.- what in the world am I gonna do with this woman! But she met him at church so that’s okay :) I kinda told her about a friend of mine… She expects to meet you while I’m down here :D Maybe we can do dinner, get fed by the woman who taught me everything I know lol Alright, back to your scheduled program people :*
GUESS WHO’S BACK BACK BACK BACK AT IT AGAIN (lol well maybe not so much but kind of)
GUUUUUUYYYYSSSS IT’S BEEN SO LOOOOONG I don’t even know if people still look at my stuff or check if I posted anything new like come on two years of absence (SORRY BTW) School has been really tough and welp, no time for anything at all besides breathing and suffering IN FACT, I haven’t read one piece since the end of dressrosa, literally, I have no idea what happened or if anyone died (I’m hoping there were no fatalities in these months)
SO HEY let’s talk, tell me wassup, how have ya’ll been doing! and again, sorry for disappearing lol
Honestly I want to cry. I love Magnus so much. He's honestly such amazing bi representation and poc representation- very specifically Asian- and Harry himself is an actual angel. I just... want him to get more love and respect? And I'll be honest I'm white and bisexual and it breaks my heart and I honestly can't imagine how much worse it must be for fans of color and LGBTQ fans of color. I just am sad, sorry for this ask.
i’m just going to be brutally honest and say that white ppl can criticize this show and walk away and still find their rep elsewhere; as a queer se asian i … can’t. like i don’t. have much else?? this is it for us. this is all we get.
so it’s uncomfortable when i see the criticisms from white ppl leveled @ the show as if they somehow get it, as if it hurts them just as bad or they’re just as disappointed. like…no, you don’t get it. you just don’t. and it isn’t a slight against white fandom i’m happy you guys are lucky enough you can look elsewhere but please remember that you are in fact lucky enough to be able to look elsewhere.
