this is what my art has turned into

Thoughts on: drawing sword (fighting) styles?

That is one good question! Actually I haven’t given much thought to it lately, even though I really should…

Most of my critical thoughts concern films, not drawings, but I think you can apply some of it to art.

  • Don’t make your characters locked in a close range struggle, or make them turn the fight into wrestling.

Take that scene from, say, The Force Awakens, where Rey and Ren are balancing on the edge of a precipice, close enough to smell what the other had for breakfast, pressing their swords full force against eachoter.

And then Rey somehow has the time to relax. 

Now, this only makes the already non-HEMA-accurate scene even more riddiculous. What should have happened at this point is for Ren to kick her in the knee, hit the back of her head with the handle of his sabre and be done.

  • Katanas and non-light sabres have one cutting edge, make sure to make them try and cut with that, and not the blakn side. (This seems like a no-brainer, but I’ve seen this messed up. On a tattoo.)

  • If you’re drawing a longsword, make sure to make the handle long enough for two hands.

au where Saitama responds to his haters with overwhelming sarcasm

I needed a little pick-me-up but I got lazy halfway through lol, but I’ll be focusing on au stuff now I promise! my brain has been really unfocused recently and I just, need to get refocused (; _ ; )


“The hero throughout the ages has been a being described as possessing endless courage…and your situation, my son. Isn’t that exactly what it is? I’m so proud of you.”

Basically I turned hate on my Transmale!Link (who use sign language) headcanon post and made it productive and doodled a -very- quick comic in between projects.

BTS Reaction | Sex role-play

Request; bts reaction to you wanting to roleplay during sex and what roleplay they’d want

Kim Namjoon

Namjoon would be open to roleplaying during sex if you were, one of his favourites being a professor x student. Just so he could see you wearing a short skirt, stockings, a white shirt and a tie that could also be used to tie you up. 

“I mean if you’re willing to dress the part of a student, I’ll do anything for you”

Kim Seokjin

Jin had thought about roleplay a few times before but never enough to actually ask you to try it. When you asked him he would already have an idea of what he wanted to try.

“I’m the chef, you’re my server, plot twist, you’re also my dessert”

Min Yoongi

Yoongi would find the whole idea of role-playing pointless when he could just fuck you and make you feel good. If you kept asking he’d soon end up agreeing.

“Okay fine, but if we’re doing this you can be my masseuse or something, but you better give me a good massage before it turns sexual”

Jung Hoseok

Hoseok hadn’t put much thought into roleplay before but when you asked if you could try it he’d be more than willing, picking something he would be able to really get himself into. 

“I’m your dance teacher, you’re my student, don’t you think that’d be really sexy?”

Park Jimin

Jimin liked the idea of role-playing during sex but would have never put much thought into what he’d want. He’d probably pick something where you could be in charge, such as nurse x patient

“I mean I really like it when you take care of me, maybe you could be a sexy nurse?”

Kim Taehyung

Taehyung would definitely be into roleplaying, the idea of it was a big turn on for him. Since he has an undying love for art and photography and a new found love for drawing, I think he’d like something along the lines of painter x muse. 

“How about you pose naked for me, let me draw you, it’d be so sexy, just the thought of it is turning me on”

Jeon Jungkook

Jungkook would be open to trying it, putting thought into what you both would enjoy before settling on a concept. for you both to try

“You liked my policeman outfit from the Dope MV, right? You could be my prisoner and maybe I could handcuff you”

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3

How about… Lance distracting Pidge with a kiss (which works wonders) before he shoves her into an escape pod to save her. (Think season 1 epi 10 with Allura saving Shiro)

This has been rolling around my head for weeks, as like what could make for an awesome season 3 cliffhanger, as they rescue matt and sam.

The great request by @vanlegion which took forever to deliver because I wanted to buff up my drawing skills first so I could do it justice. I have a few more requests on hold for that same reason. Also first time ever drawing two people kissing, which turned out okay-ish.


guys help I’m having too much fun with this D:

SO I decided what the heck and went for the pro trial, turns out you can actually do waaaaaay more when you’re not limited to like 30 parameters! I managed to fix a lot of my mistakes with Fluttershy, although Twi has plenty of her own problems. I think she came out cute anyway! ✨

(I really wanna do AJ, SciTwi, or Sunset next but…I should probably focus on fixing her first. baw)


I saw that the reaper76 tag was lacking a BikerAU (or maybe I didn’t search well enough I dunno) and I was like: “WTF where is the BikerAU at?!?!” So having not seen any fanart of that I decided to make some practice drawings. Heavily used google images as reference xD There’s more sketches and even tiny pieces of fics I’m working on. I’m seriously in love with this AU. Also, go listen to Hands by Barns Courtney.

sooooo i found out that in the original version of A Link to the Past, Link has pink hair??? 

also my gf said that link is a nonbinary icon so thats just true

snepedemic  asked:

whats your lineless art process? like what steps do you use

It’s a pretty straight forward process, I start with a sketch that has relatively clear shapes and lines. I probably spend the most time on this stage making sure everything looks good so there is less I might have to fix later.

I’ll use this quick doodle of Marinette as an example.

On a new layer above the sketch, I start blocking in the colors using my lineart pen (which I use for coloring in flats generally anyway), making sure to turn the opacity down to about 70% so I can see what I’m doing. Its easier to control the shapes using the lineart pen rather than using a lasso tool.  

For every new color (or if they have a different depth) I add a new layer. The only time I add lines is when shapes of the same color overlap. To make these color changes and lines softer, I use an airbrush to blend them a bit.  

I just keep filling in the colors until everything is blocked in, then I merge all the layers and fix what I don’t like from here (and add any last minute details). For the Marinette drawing, I ended up narrowing the whole thing and changing her eyes. 

Now we’re all done! :) Hope I was able to explain it well enough, though if you have any questions about any steps just lemme know!

He’d evolved complex coping strategies for being told he was rubbish- he’d had plenty of time to work on those- but nobody had ever told him what he was supposed to do if people suddenly turned round and started using words like amazing and astonishing at him. He was completely overwhelmed, and fairly terrified.

Still re-reading Blue Sky. One of my favorite scenes is in Ch 9 between Garret and Wheatley, and I felt it deserved this meme (never thought I would have to make a meme from scratch, but sometimes you gotta make the content you wanna see in the world, ha)

Recently finished Black Sails and WOW, it was excellent. If you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend it. I don’t even know who to paint next, there are that many amazing characters. A huge thank you to @wecanseethemadness, for convincing me to watch it!


The family that pranks together stays together. Also I’m pretty sure Ezra is just glad that Sabine has stopped pranking him in favor of a new crewmember. Also welcome, Specter 7! Also I SPENT ALL DAY MAKING THIS STUPID COMIC HELP


Concept: in the next animal crossing, they bring back Celeste’s observatory, but with an added twist…

A vagabond owl or other nocturnal creature visits your town occasionally at night, and if you find them, they teach you a new constellation. Making your own constellations in wild world was fun, but learning all the actual constellations in relationship to others would be kickass.

Then they show up in your sky at night in relation to whats in the sky irl in your location. Could turn connections between stars on/off for viewing purposes. And you can observe them, plus planets!! In the actual observatory using the telescope.

You already are collecting and learning about fish, bugs, art, and fossils, so why not space, too?

“Pidge has changed a lot since we left Earth. She’s ruthless.”

“I know. I think finding out about… what happened to her father…”

“Do you ever think about how she might have turned out if we hadn’t been able to save Matt either?”

“…I try not to.”

(Sam Holt is not coming home.)
