thats not quitting at all

anonymous asked:

Hey uh.. not to bother you by any means.. but can I get a link to those tips for drawing people crying you did once?? I looked through all the tags and couldn't find it myself, sorry..

Oh, it’s no bother! http://whatisthiscutenonsense.tumblr.com/post/147379834506/eruhamster-retroautomaton-some-crying-tips 

But honestly, I’m not actually too happy with those anymore. They’re pretty old. I still sort of hold the same value when I draw them, but here’s some more updated tips, if that’s alright. 

One of the biggest complaints I got with those tips was that just a single tear is good enough. Well yes and no. Tears are just a helpful tool, and of course not everyone cries the same, so yes, a single tear can be just as impactful, as long as your emotion and context carries the message. 

On the opposite end of the spectrum, there’s heavy crying. And this can take many forms. Again, the face has to carry the intensity of the emotion; the tears are just there to emphasize it. More intensity, (for some people) does tend to include more liquids and leaking. 

And of course none of it has to be perfect or even. As I love to touch on, crying is messy and ugly. It brings out the most strained emotions. So none of it has to be symmetrical to get the point across- if anything, it gives it more movement. 

I of course draw in a more cartoony fashion, so if you did want to go on the more realistic end of the spectrum, you can focus on the actual physics of tears and how they act and react on the face. More realistically, they come from the inner eye, and are much smaller. They tend to fall in wayward paths, slowly, but  sperraticly, and in droplets or thin streams. You can also add streak marks and flush up the face, depending on the subject. 

I’m glad you liked my old tips, and I hope these new ones help!

Soo I finally decided to answer some older asks. It’s gonna take me only like, what, 40 years?

THE TINY DUO

Honestly Gion can make almost any chemistry he has with his teammates work. But there’s definitely something special and adorable about his relationship with Raita, who’s been taking care of him since the first practice match.

☆ ┇ ooc: I had planned to make a post like this a few months ago but I missed the half year anniversary for this blog and Im making this one on the 8th one instead. It’s been a fun ride so far as for portraying this character and I do hope to develop him more soon in the future. There’s been a few ups and downs but we all have to expect that to happen with our muses. I don’t want to make a big post but there are a few mentions that I want to add below as for plotting w/ me and for some that Im looking up to. I can’t add everyone ( this is not my last post, there will be more like this in the future ) but I admire every single one of you that I follow and dont be afraid to come ask for a thread/starter or a pre estab relationship.  ♡

When I thought Madi was gone. I saw–for the first time I saw the world through your eyes. A world in which there is nothing left to lose. I felt the need to make sense of the loss. To impart meaning to it…whatever the cost. To exalt her memory with battles and victories. But beneath all of that, I recognized the other thing, hiding in the spaces. The ones whose shape you first showed me. And when asked, it was honest about the role it wanted to play. It was rage. And it wanted to see the world burn.

A quick follow-up to reassure you that, yes, I am aware that being bad at video games is a Joestar family tradition.  This was another tangent–next time, things get a little more serious. Stay tuned!

“stop making mallet covers of the flip flappers music,” you all say.

“no,” i reply, scouring the internet for the epic climax everything-is-cool-and-we’re-getting-our-happy-ending sheet music so i can make a mallet percussion cover of it

You said memories become stories when we forget them.  Maybe some of them become songs.

What’s it called?  I think that it’s called…Clara.

So we’ve been keeping this a secret all week, but now that we finally have him I can share this perfectly cute face with everyone!! Meet Foster, a purebred blue heeler, and the new member of our fur family 🐕 <3 <3 <3

He’s 2 months old and absolutely gorgeous in color and adorable and sweet in personality. Our other dog (a 3 year old black mouth cur, Smokey) is getting along with him surprisingly well for being a selfish attention-greedy baby. The cat hates him but that’s okay lmao

I’m so happy to have him!! When he’s old enough he’ll be trained as a service dog, which will be good for my boi (who has cancer). He’s a good boy  ♥ ♥ ♥
