the camera was just there right as i put my hands up


“Rumor has it you cannot look bad when Bokuto takes a picture of you.”

You’re damn right I’m not done drawing things for this series yet. This one was kinda quick, and I’d originally intended to do it in watercolor but apparently that was not to be. I’ll probably give it another try later, I just wanted to put something up tonight and this still came out pretty well, I think. 

Photography major Bokuto from @sturlsons‘ fantastic college AU jaywalkers. …Somehow, every time I draw this guy I end up crosshatching and my hands and various pens hate me for it.

NCT probably...
  • Director: Okay John boi imma need you to stand over there *points near the bush*
  • Johnny: *obediently walks over*
  • Director: now i'll need you to hold this
  • Director: *hands johnny a plant*
  • Johnny: *smiles his beautiful smile*
  • Director: no smiling
  • Johnny: oh right, sorry
  • Director: *holding up his camera* okay... now i'll just need you to bite that plant
  • Johnny: b-bite? you said bite? like, put it in my mouth?
  • Director: *nodding his head* yeah, yeah. bite the plant. like, really aggressively, bite it like it's a chicken leg. then spit it out like you're at your family cookout and your grandmother turned away while you were eating her tasteless potato salad.

My camera put a filter on this and it took me ages to remove it (image on the right) but idk have both? 

It’s been a long time since I did portraits but I’ve been in a lot of pain lately and I just remembered how soothing I found working with pencil, so I thought I’d maybe do a little tribute to Lin Manuel, since the soundtrack to Hamilton got me through the work I had to hand in last semester. Thats where I failed my last attempt at study… it feels good to have gotten further.

@excessively-english-little-b Convinced me to put this up, I’ve been scared cause its not the best out there by far haha, but then thats not the point.

TLSP @ Lollapalooza: A Summary
  • they opened with moonage daydream and it was sooo good
  • i was 2nd row on the left and had a super good view because no one was directly in front of me and every time alex or miles walked over i died because they’re so beautiful
  • alex was wearing the riddler jacket over the peach shirt lmao what a combo. he took off the jacket after moonage daydream but then he draped it over his shoulders but he was struggling to get it on because one of the sleeves was inside out and he never realized and i just wanted to run up and fix it for him
  • alex kept motioning for the cameraman to come closer and then he’d put his hand up dramatically to stop him
  • they were both getting really up in the cameras and goofing around
  • speaking of cameras there was one right in front of me and it felt like it was being pointed at me a lot lmao idk what that footage is being used for but i hope my sweaty face isn’t in it too much
  • during used to be my girl alex adjusted the mic so it was super low and then he sat down and sang and eventually laid down and started bicycling in the air and he was literally RIGHT in front of me and i was getting an awesome video AND THEN MY PHONE RAN OUT OF STORAGE RIGHT BEFORE HE STARTED BICYCLING
  • miles was soooo smiley it was really cute. he was standing in front of me but he kept smiling at someone on the right side of the audience so idk what they were doing or if they had a sign or something
  • someone threw a rose to miles but he didn’t take it
  • alex was doing the thing where he hops around with his guitar like a kangaroo except he was hopping sideways and it looked really fucking funny i hope someone got a video
  • they ended with in my room and it was INSANE. miles screamed and jumped with his guitar and alex was flailing around
  • it was way too short i wanted it to go on forever
