How do you draw hands? Like I think i did it once years many years ago but I can't seem to figure it out. Don't worry if you don't get to this request I don't mind ^~^ You're art is super cool amazing and I love it <3
Thank you so much!! <3
I’ve studied lots of tutorials and videos, so definitely look for those and draw alongside the videos whenever possible.
Also, back when I was in high school and college, to keep myself awake I’d doodle a lot. I’d end up drawing my left hand because it was just right there. As a result, there were a lot of drawings of my left hand all over my notes. XD Anyway, I got quite a bit of of practice that way.
Here’s a hand tutorial by Kienan Lafferty, one of my favorite tutorial guys on YouTube because he talks in a very basic way without sounding like he’s talking down to you.
Here’s a quick gif I made of my own process. I usually start with the basic shape of the palm and work my way outwards. I use a reference if needed. I’m still far from perfect but I make it a point to not try to hide hands behind objects or behind characters’ backs to force myself to learn to draw them better.
I am so tired of the meme that “what aces complain about only highlights their privilege.” because every single time, it’s something that we also fight for and complain about.
This time, someone at a UK college that asks if you’re “straight, gay, other, or decline to state” on their campus job apps complained about not being able to indicate they were ace.
And of course some exclusionists were like “meanwhile, LGBT people are scared to answer that in case it’s used against them! Why do you need to tell people about your relationship to sex in random situations! The things you people complain about just highlight your privilege!”
(Yes, they really said “you people,” like some kind of cartoon stereotype of a bigot)
I suppose that if I were in that same situation and I complained about not being able to say I was bi or trans, that would also be an example of my amazing bi/trans double privilege?
I have fought so fucking hard to be able to tell people I’m bi or trans in random situations!
When I told my dentist she needed something besides “male” and “female” on her intake forms, was I just highlighting my privilege as a visibly nonbinary person?
When I make a point of bringing up my partner, in job interviews, in a way that makes it clear I’m “LGBT”, so that I can't chicken out of being out at work, and can test them ahead of time to see if they’re cool about it, am I just highlighting my privilege there too?
(This is a good example of where “LGBT” fails as an inclusive term. I can’t say that mentioning my partner makes it clear I’m gay, because we’re both bi. It might make them THINK I’m gay, but it would sound even more ridiculous to say “mentioning my partner in a way that makes them think I’m gay.” And I can’t say “in a way that makes it clear I’m bi,” because I don’t think it does, and I’m not sure what that would even be. But using “LGBT” as an adjective for a single person doesn’t actually make any sense, since I’m not lesbian, gay, bi, AND transgender.)
Anyway you could argue that it’s some kind of privilege of living in a big city or a liberal state, if you wanted, I guess. But that isn’t actually the same kind of thing as having privilege given to you by society because of what/who you are. And it’s not really accurate.
What’s more accurate is that some of us can use areas where we do have privilege, like class privilege, to balance out some of the areas where we lack privilege. Like around gender or sexual orientation or being intersex.
Like, someone applying for an on-campus job, at a university that asks you about sexual orientation in the job app… They’re probably in the same position I am. They are in a SOMEWHAT accepting environmental, and have enough economic security to risk some of those jobs rejecting them for their orientation.
And that means they have enough safety - even if it’s just BARELY enough - to trade a little of that class privilege in to make their group more visible and better supported. But they can’t, because it’s invisible.
I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve been faced with forms where I had to write in that I was bi or trans or nonbinary, because the situation was a safe space for “LGBT people” but only really knew to ask about some of the more visible things… which then affects their data about what communities they serve, and who needs to be served… by making it so that the people they’re not thinking of don’t show up in those numbers at all.
Complaining about that is not a sign of my magical bi nonbinary trans privilege. And it’s not a sign of someone else’s imaginary “cishet” privilege as an ace person.
Mitjo because they were trying to take a couple selfie with a Polaroid camera but Mitch doesn’t love having pics taken of him so he just directs Jonas into a kiss instead but the camera still takes a shot. *eternal screaming because I cannot handle these two in love and all touchy-feely but I need it*
Characters belong to: @smokeplanet
is far from the only character who gets a lot of
mentoring help throughout the BnHA series. So let’s talk about
Bakugou for a(nother) moment, shall we?
don’t know what it is about middle school in Japan, but it seems to
really suck? In every high school anime I watch, all the drama
always happens in middle school, and the teaching staff is highly
lax, if not completely irresponsible. They certainly didn’t do much
to quell a young Bakugou’s more violent
or help a young Midoriya with what is very obviously a bullying
safe to say that until he goes to UA, Bakugou basically lacks in
authority figures, which is one (not all) of the reasons he got to
act as bad as he did.
start of the series, he’s gotten a bit better. So let’s examine
his dads (and one mum).
contain an explosion
time we see an actual authority figure reign in Bakugou, is when he
hits UA. And in this case you can take that quite literally.
person is, of course, Aizawa. Now I frigginlove Aizawa
he is one of the most underrated characters in the series and I will shout that to the rooftops for all eternity but also,
Aizawa is, for his students and specifically for Bakugou, a
constant source of lowkey support. His
teaching method is very much hands-off, letting his students make mistakes and figure out solutions for themselves,
which seems to be the go-to for all anime mentors everywhere, but his
support is definitely there.
Because, and this is
important, he looks beyond posing. Beyond attitudes and images. He
has reason to, of course. Aizawa looks and acts like a drunken hobo
half the time, but he is actually one of the better teachers and
heroes as UA. He knows a thing or two about appearances.
honestly, it is very much needed. UA and the entirety of the
story are, remember, utterly brutal to Bakugou and his self-esteem.
It’s a pretty classic ‘break him down before you can build him up’
sort of theme. But Aizawa is not part of this. He restrains
the kid exactly twice. Once, when he was about to (possibly) murder
Midoriya, and a second time when he was blatantly breaking UA rules. Aizawa
does not belittle Bakugou, he does not fear him and most of all, he
does not underestimate him.
him, advises him. He defends
will scold him, but mostly he has a certain amount of respect for the
kid. He trusts him.
I think for
Bakugou that is incredibly important. Because Aizawa is
someone he respects. Here is a pro hero who has taken the time
to get to actually know him.
Aizawa is someone who
puts down clear boundaries and then gives him the freedom
to stay within them. Whether out of disinterest or fear, that middle school teacher way back in the
first episode wasn’t even trying to stop him from hurting
Midoriya. That sort of shit would not fly in Aizawa’s class. But he’s
also not going to lay it out for him. He trusts that Bakugou will, in fact, sort himself
out. Once your core is on the right track, the rest will follow.
shown, in a very real way, that this is how you get the best results
with Bakugou. Horikoshi does this by showing us how NOT to do it. For instance, while Best Jeanist certainly has the intentions and the authority as a Pro Hero to mentor him, he
goes about it all wrong.
Because what he does is exactly
that: micromanage, completely make over the outside, not the inside.
can’t just expect the kid to change his entire being like that.
Certainly not because it’s fairly clear that Best Jeanist,
well-meaning as he is, is not exactly trying to understand Bakugou.
Hi Jo!So I'm super excited for the next ep, I'm hoping that it'll fix all of the mistakes that were made in 2x07. until that, let me sneak in a random question into your ask box: do you think malec call each other nicknames/pet names?
Hi Nitsa! Same here, I’m excited and I hope my internet here is strong enough to sustain my livestream~
I mean, we all know Magnus uses pet names with like, everybody. Biscuit here, darling there, sweetheart over at the back. So Alec isn’t surprised when he’s fumbling around the kitchen and Magnus shows up, one hand combing through bed hair and another muffling a yawn and mumbles out “what’s cooking, pumpkin?” As much as Alec thinks that’s endearing, he hates that he has to suppress the idea that he has used the nickname on one too many lovers. So the next time they’re kissing in bed; hands under each other’s shirts, long legs tangled in an organised mess and Alec slides his fingers along Magnus’ ribcage just right, tearing a breathless “Alexander” out of him, Alec steels himself.
“I love it when you call me that,” Alec pauses, a few seconds longer, betraying the casual tone of his voice. And Magnus is astute, even when he’s seconds away from dragging Alec down towards him because his lips are not where they should be, and he drags out, voice thick as honey, “Of course, my Alexander”, with a steady gaze. And Alec knows that Magnus gets it, and he finally seals Magnus’ lips with his.
Alec’s awkward with nicknames. Now that he’s thinking about it, he realises that the only one whom he calls with a nickname is Izzy and doesn’t everyone call her that? Well, except Magnus; and now that he’s thinking of him, he’s troubled over whether Magnus would like to have that: a pet name. Darling? Too common, Magnus practically calls everybody that. Baby? No way, he’d rather die than have to call someone that. Mags? Alec makes a face.
“What’s with that face? Wait, don’t tell me Izzy made this,” Jace glares at the spoonful of stew he was about to put into his mouth and his eyes dart between Alec and the pot in between them. Alec’s confused for a moment but he shakes his head and puts his spoon down, to which Jace sighs in relief and shoves the spoon into his mouth.
“Jace, what did you call your…girlfriends? I mean, did you call each other using pet names? Does it come naturally? Like, how do you suddenly go from calling someone by name to calling them by something else? What’s that something else? How-”
“Wait, wait, wait. Slow it down, bud. Are you talking about things like babe, princess or things like that?” Alec nods solemnly at the question and Jace’s confusion suddenly turns to smugness. He was about to make a jab at that but Alec shook his head and Jace dropped it out of kindness from seeing his parabatai so troubled. He merely shrugs and offers, “Don’t think too much about it; it’s gonna come out forced if you overthink it, and yes, I can totally see you overthinking right now so don’t even deny it, I know you Alec,” Alec huffs but he takes the advice to heart and tries not to wince when he has to get his boyfriend’s attention and has to settle for “Magnus”.
And when it finally happens, he just has to mess it up, or so he thinks, when he picks up a phone call mid-mission and in his distraction, he answers with, “Hi love, what’s up,” after which there’s a silence that’s a beat too long and Alec realises that he’s fucked up because he hasn’t even said the three words and this order is totally wrong and oh god, Magnus doesn’t feel the same yet, does he? He’s this close to flinging his phone to the furthest end of the world when Magnus clears his throat and replies, voice a little unsteady, “Well, Alexander, I love you too, if that’s what you were trying to say,” and Alec is amazed by how Magnus always knows and never in his life had he wanted to be a warlock so badly just so he could portal to right where Magnus was and kiss the stars out of him.
So even tho there was a huge delay causing the concert to start late and the boys had to cut some songs to fit in the time frame, the concert was amazing and I would go again anytime. These were just some of the best moments (might be out of order tho lol)
When they came out started singing Empire State of mind
In honestly they started talking to the stand because it wouldn’t move and just left it they just sat on it. Even called it baby.
Who is the most romantic member? Kihyun sang flower cafe and even tho Minghyuk and Changkyun kept telling him to stop he just continued and they ended up making him shut up
Minhyuk picked Jooheon as the most romantic and he started singing untitled 2014 he also made the cutest expression beforehand cause the cheering
Changkyun trying to sing. So cute he sang like one line and you tried baby
Shownu and Wonho come onto stage and the 4 go off. They continue the conversation but they are just complimenting each other
They started chanting New York and then we did, but Wonho was like NO NO and started making us chant wonho instead and we did and he was so happy the memebers were like no
Minhyuk saying jooheon should freestyle rap
YOO KIHYUN CAN BEATBOX HE STARTED BEATBOXING FOR JOOHOEN WOW. But Jooheon was like I’m not good at this. BUT MINHYUK IS
Chanting for minhyuk to rap and him saying be quiet and starts singing be quiet
Minhyuk imitating Jooheon’s rap in Mirror as he and Kihyun are changing
Changkyun saying monbebes are the most beautiful
Changkyun saying I love you when saying what was best about New York (lots of butter changkyun)
Wonho wiping a towel on his stomach and giving it to the crowd at the encore (FANSERVICE KING WOW)
They throw chocolates like softballs. I swear someone probably got hit on the head
Wonho and all his hearts like lots of hearts. Just in the background you can see him making hearts
Crowd chanting for Hyungwon. And everytime Hyungwon’s part came on we cheered like a lot
Wonho following kihyun like a duck in fighter (maybe to fight him?). And I think Minhyuk pushed him too lol
Wonho giving Minhyuk a choker made of confetti
Jooheon fake crying on Shownu who was also fake crying and Changkyun crying alone when they said they only have a few more songs
“This is not beautiful in New York it’s beautiful because of New York” - Changkyun
You are the reason I am a tinhat! You rock so much and now I can't believe I didn't see it before!!
Oh my god, that is amazing, darling-whose-name-I-don’t-know-but-that’s-okay!
(Anyone who has followed me for awhile probably realizes that I kinda have a weird thing about liking to know people’s names, I dunno, I’m weird. It’s not personal.)
Anyways, I have no idea how you stumbled across my blog or where you were in your J2 journey before you found me, but that makes me so delighted to hear that my posts (honestly mostly just reblogs of other wonderful people’s thoughts and musings and insight, they deserve the credit) actually convinced you over to the tinhat side!
(Quick shoutout to @glass-closet which was the first tinhat blog I ever found, and in just like a week or two Sera’s posts and patient answering of my questions made me go from not even really interested in the Js past the show *coughandwincestcough* to being a diehard, go down in flames tinhat. Love you, doll.)
So, yeah. Welcome to hell (it’s the best, don’t worry).
It’s also really fucking hot.
I mean, yeah, they’re fucking adorable…
But seriously, why does everything seem so sexual with them??
I mean, could you be more obvious?
No, really. Could. You. Be. More. Obvious??!??!?!
Because Jared’s not a chick yeah yeah we get it
YOU LITERALLY ACT LIKE YOU’RE MARRIED ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE CLICHED-BUT-TOTALLY-FUCKING-CUTE-WEDDING-CAKE-IN-THE-FACE THING
I don’t even fucking know what I’m doing anymore
Jared violently regretting his decision to make Jensen wait to fool around until after the panel
Yes I use that gif all the time because LOOK AT IT
Ah, who knows. Anyways, thank you SO MUCH for the message, darling. And welcome to the tinhat community! Come back to chat anytime :)))
I feel like throwing out an angsty as fuck camp camp end game scenario and sorry you're the one I'm gonna force it upon: Basically David dies, in some awful, gut wrenching and heartbreaking way, and maybe it was even Max's fault indirectly. Max is shouting that the idiot can't die and David's tearful last words are some soppy shit along the lines of 'it's not your fault' and 'I'm just so glad I got to spend time with you amazing kids i love you' he falls still and Max fucking looses it.(1 of 3)
Max screaming between sobs: ‘no no NO NO! WHAT HAPPENED TO “SOMEBODY FUCKING HAS TO” DAVID??? YOU CANT JUST- you know what? YOU KNOW WHAT?? Im gonna be even MORE of an insufferable happy idiot thAN YOU EVER WERE. I c-cant promise I’ll be able to do it right away being that angry little bastard you had to deal with…b-but I’m gonna try okay? I’m gonna try for you asshole! a-and then youll regret fucking dying on us, REGRET THAT YOULL NEVER GET TO SEE HOW YOU CHANGED ME?? FUCKING IDIOT!’ (2 of 3)
Eventually Gwen has to pull a screaming Max away from David, but Max swears through tears that he’ll keep his promise…Years pass, and eventually, Max becomes the newest Camp Campbell Counsellor. He’s considerate and a little lax, but there’s a certain enthusiasm to him reminiscent of someone long passed. Max never forgot that idiot camp counsellor from his childhood who wanted nothing more than to make camp fun and he forever keeps the memories of that man near and dear to his heart. (3 of 3)
Okay, I know I said I like angst…but gosh, you guys are getting really dark.
But in all honesty, I have nothing to add to this. You’ve got some amazing angst here, Anon, and I’m all about Max eventually having a breakdown because he indirectly got David hurt.
back when there weren’t hacks and we all had to duplicate crap with that turn-off-your-wifi-when-the-session-is-ending-at-the-exact-right-moment
when clover paths blew up in popularity and we all shared the same pain of having to dupe for hours and hours to fill our towns with clovers and WHOA I FOUND A FOUR LEAF CLOVER I WONDER IF THAT MAKES ME LUCKY
I remember when all the drama was on acnlconfessions and about 50% of it was furries
that infamous club tortimer troll guy who made me cry that one time and wow that was so stupid omg
“why is marshal so popularrrrr I only liek the UGLY villagersss” - about 30% of submissions to confession blogs
when I sold marshal to someone for 40 million bells omg
beetle farming for hours and hours to pay off them loans because once again NO HACKS
kind souls posting their high turnip prices and letting people come to their towns to sell, those people saved my life
the great pastel vs. forest towns debate (is that still a thing?)
when the sloppy set was a Huge Deal and now I never see it??
north tbh, I miss it
dream suite: “is that a bra rack”
debates about whether or not tom nook is really evil
discovering that you could put ur kk music on shuffle = mind blown
the excitement of discovering various new features in acnl for the first time- gem rocks, the clam shell music boxes, bamboo!! amazing!!
the term “dreamies” I rarely see it anymore and I am grateful for that
Hi! I only been in the ut fandom for about a month. I managed to avoid spoilers till then. But your work was some of the first I saw, and I just wanted to say that what you made is amazing. I'm glad you were able to take the break that you needed, and I wanted to thank you for the stories you're telling. I've even started drawing more since I watched your stuff. Your animations are beautiful to watch. So thank you, with all my "soul." I can't wait to see the bigger and better things you'll do.
Thank you so much! I’m so happy to know that.
I hope I can stay here for a long time to bring motivation to more people
whenever I see the 2016 rogue photos on my dash I'm always so shocked that it's more... homoerotic -I guess?- than I remember it. it portrays so much longing. like, I still can't believe those pics weren't accompanying a coming out article. even jared's quote that they put next to one of the pics!! "we thought we had the world by the balls and we quickly figured out that we did not" or something. holy shit, you know?
I KNOW!! The first time I saw those photos, I thought they were fake. Because there’s no fucking way two “straight, just best friends, that’s all haha” men would….look like that together.
They’re ridiculous and amazing and I LOVE THOSE PICTURES SO GODDAMN MUCH. Maybe the photographer was secretly also a tinhat? That’d be fucking hilarious.
Thanks for the message, bby! Glad I’m not the only one who thinks those photos look, as you said perfectly, completely homoerotic.
Izuku, Bakugou, Todokori, Iida, Kaminari, and Kirishima discover their supposedly Quirkless s/o is actually hiding an amazing quirk because she doesn't want to be a hero; she can't handle the pressures that come with it.
My dear @onliafaze , I am going to do these one at a time cos I do not want you to wait forever and I am getting really into these. So first up is Midoriya! I wrote this even though it is over my character limit cos this was requested before I had posted my rules and it seemed unfair not to write it just because of that. These were supposed to be hc but I have no self control so sorry about that XD. ~Admin K 🎶
What was he going to do? These psychotic…things were destroying everything in the area. Three of them. These things looked like they were made of the odds and ends of all kinds of animals. With the body of a lion, a thick snake’s body coming from the spot where the lion’s tail would be, and from the waist up, they were human—they were the stuff of nightmares. They had terrifyingly large fangs dripping with poison, and it was obvious very quickly that the power of those snake tails had the power of being lethal with the right amount of force. Bat wings a kilometer in length sprouted from their lion backs.
People were running around like mad, desperately trying to escape them. People with all kinds of powerful quirks, but with no training to use them properly. Pro heroes had to be on their way, but who were these villians? Would the heroes even know how to stop them? First things first, he absolutely had to find ___ and get her to safety. His girlfriend was his number one priority at the moment; he could try to fend off those other guys later, but being quirkless in this situation? ___ was not safe here. He screamed her name, desperately calling to find her.
Okay so chapter 3 of Shut up and dance with me when they're in the park okay listen. That is the softest and purest keith I have ever seen I am not exaggerating when I say he made me cry a little bit what a good boy I can't stop looking at him. What a perfect keith like if I were lance I'd be shook too 😭😭 I just wanted to let you know your art is beautiful and amazing and it literally made me cry so thank you so much ❤️❤️❤️
It’s honestly still one of my fave keefs I’ve ever done tbh!! Thank you <3
They are using the fact that ksoo watched the ha_ndmaiden as a proof that he is very str8! That it's a hot movie every dude in Kor watched to jrk off ?! I haven't watched it myself so i can't tell but wtf!
Please make sure you’re over a certain age if you want to watch this movie. It’s not just bcoz of the erotic scenes but there were torturing and some graphic disturbing scenes as well. Or watch at your own risk.
The movie was inspired by the novel, Fingersmith. I never read that novel so I’m not sure how similar the movie is with the novel.
The plot was so-so (imo). But the characterizations were disturbingly amazing. Even the architecture, clothes and set-up were beautiful. Jjs said ks likes noir films, I wouldn’t be surprised if he actually enjoyed the movie. There was a twist in the movie which I didn’t see it coming. The erotic part of the movie was moaning (does that even count?), boobies and the handmaiden reading the erotic novels for the perverted men. Oh, perhaps the girls getting it on? Their boobies are very healthy btw.
Imo, this movie isn’t just a ‘movie guy can jrk off’ to. It showed how women were used for men’s sexual pleasures (if guy jerk of to this idk what to say), no tragic ending for the same-sex couple and how money could drive ppl to do the unspeakable.
Ks is an actor himself and this movie was nominated and won a lot of awards. It is a movie worth more than a jerk off material for an actor. I think if he wants to jerk off, he could just drop by the porn sites. I mean, idk bout watching girls making out would make ks straight so… what should I watch to make myself a lesbian hmmmm. Lmao.
