these turned out so shitty

“I hope that one day, the world gets to a place where you don’t need to politicize your sexuality any more than someone needs to politicize their race — that we can just act and we can exist in this Zeitgeist, telling stories about one another. And that no one’s afraid, maybe, to come out.”

see, this is why its so easy to put people on a pedestal and why i dont blame anyone for doing that even though i advise against it. like, the travis mcelroy thing made me confirm something about my identity to myself and because of that he’s inexorably linked to that. so if he turned out shitty i’d be totally distraught. and i think looking at every single personality, on the internet or otherwise, with such a critical eye that you assume they’re shitty no matter what is probably just depriving yourself of avenues to bettering yourself. its ok to have role models. its ok to assume people are good. its not your fault for thinking nick robinson is a good person, it’s his fault for betraying that trust.

diverse book recast:  the enemy series by charlie higson  london crew leaders

the enemy is a post-apocalyptic young adult horror novel first published in 2009. The series takes place across London, after a worldwide sickness has infected adults, turning them into something akin to voracious, cannibalistic zombies.  In order to survive, the surviving children band into crews and groups, many sheltering in iconic london architectures and locations such as buckingham palace, parliament house and the tower of london. Crews possess their own beliefs and cultures, sometimes incompatible with the other kids around them,leading to street wars and crew clash.

How do you go about constructing faces i really struggle with it and yours turn out so nice

 so this is shitty but: I drew this very quickly to show the order in which I draw different features, because usually different elements inform how I draw the other parts of the face. A lot of people start out drawing eyes which works for them, but personally I wouldn’t recommend it especially if you’re struggling with it. I still start out drawing the face shape because like I said, it informs the placement of the rest of the facial features.

If you’re having trouble and not already using guidelines I would recommend it! Eventually you’ll get to a point where you won’t need them, but they are very helpful for keeping shit in line (literally) (also remember that they should follow the curve of the head and not be drawn straight on, faces have volume and even though my style is about as flat as it gets in terms of coloring I still try and reflect that.) ex:


There are a few features that i kind of use as ‘built in guidelines’ for faces: such as the ears, which align with the bottom of the nose and the top of your eyebrows. There is a little room to fudge this but this is a good general rule to follow and it helps to remember this when you’re drawing the head at different angles especially.

The hairline is also something that helps me determine the angle of a head, in this really shitty 10 second example I used u notice a lot less of the hairline is visible when the head is angled. (I usually draw out the entire shape of the head underneath the hair, even if the hair obscures the shape)

proportions on the face are hard to nail down, and they used to trip me up a ton when i first started drawing, specifically nose/forehead ratios (i used to draw some looooong faces) so just keep those things in mind. forehead height varies a lot depending on age (for example babies and young kids have larger foreheads, their facial features are lower)

i hope this helps a little, i know i’m not the best at tutorials lmao.

also if i totally misinterpreted your question lemme know I can try and answer the best I can (sometimes I get kind of vague art questions that i have… just no idea how to answer, if you have an art query it usually helps me if u can be as specific as possible with the kinds of issues ur having)
