aaron - walks in knowing exactly what he wants - only buys one book. john always tries to get him to buy more but aaron insists he already has too many (which isn’t true; he doesn’t have many books because he likes to reread the same ones over and over) - he also likes to note lines/sections that he really likes with multi-colored post it notes. the more post its a book has, the more often he rereads it
john - will go directly to the graphic novel/comic book section - ends up on the floor surrounded by comics - spends the entire time reading them and ends up buying every one - if he has the funds he usually will buy a book or two regarding social issues ( he doesn’t stock up though because he’ll sneak one from angelica’s collection here and there)
lafayette - usually interested in the biography section - grabs a handful that seem interesting to him (sometimes he’ll find several biographies on the same person) - often shares fun facts abt the people he reads about at random times (“did you know frida kahlo could drink any man under the table?”) - finds a corner to read the first few chapters of each one - only ends up buying one but writes down the names of the rest so he can come back and buy them - if he’s done before everyone else he’ll get a coffee at the café with peggy
hercules - wanders around the store for a little while - makes his way to the kids section - ends up sitting on a colorful carpet and reads children’s books to the kids (he spends the entire time back there) - his favorites arethe quiet noisy book and any Dr. Seuss book - he always uses different voices for each character in the book (he gets really into it - the kids love listening to him read and some parents even join in to listen too)
alexander - spends so much time in the store - gets a few books from every genre - ends up spending way too much money in one trip - his bookshelves are already overflowing yet he promises that he’ll read every book (he won’t) - he prefers nonfiction but will sometimes find an amazing fiction book that he rereads over and over - angelica scolds him, telling him he’s “wasting his money” (alex ignores her but deep down knows she’s right) (she always is)
george - is basically in the same boat as aaron - knows what he wants, buys it, and is done - sits beside aaron and reads while everyone else is busy - disapproves of aaron’s pick, calling it “boring” (little does he know aaron secretly bought a romance novel to read at home but he doesn’t want anyone to know about it. the notebook is a weakness of his)
eliza - looks at the poetry section for a while - she prefers really old poetry and spends afternoons deciphering their meaning - rarely ends up buying much - she already has plenty at home and even has a list of what book to read next (also ang lets eliza borrow from her stock whenever she likes) - after she finds what she wants she’ll go to the kids section and listen to herc read with the kids - she picks out more kids’ books and stacks them up beside herc
angelica - actually doesn’t need to buy any books - usually brings extra money in the case that her sisters don’t have enough - brings the book she’s in the middle of with her - spends some time looking around and writes down the names of ones she’s interested in so she can borrow them from the library later on - owns every single classic novel(little women, pride and prejudice, etc.) - has lots of books about social issues/feminism - goes b/c she enjoys the atmosphere of bookstores - also b/c she loves the sound of new book spines cracking
peggy - goes to the café first - gets a really fancy drink - looks for books with fun covers and reads the summaries in the front covers of each - ends up only choosing one because she spent too much money on her overpriced frappucino - while in line she’ll probably pick up some colorful pens - goes back to the café to read her book or draw designs on laf’s arms with her new pens
here on the studyblr community especially, i see many lovely people with lovely posts and other lovely people who stress over whether their work is ‘aesthetic’ enough or not. please keep the following tips in mind when trying to balance aesthetic and functionality.
you absolutely positively do not need a certain brand of stationery to have studyblr aesthetic and please do keep in mind the actual purpose of your studyblr: to motivate yourself, to serve as something to look back at to see how much you’ve accomplished. having a studyblr isn’t all about having perfect notes and nice pens so please please please don’t stress over that.
i plan on making a more specific post on note taking later on but these tips are specific for addressing this issue. i know a lot of people who rewrite notes to make them look pretty and some of them say that it helps them remember things better. please do keep in mind that the main purpose of your notes is to function as something to study off of later and to help you record and remember important information, not to look aesthetic all the time. i personally refrain from rewriting notes because it’s time consuming and really doesn’t help me that much. to help remember the material better, i highlight the key parts of my notes a few days before a test (can’t highlight immediately after anyways because of ink smudging problems ahhhh). it also helps to look over your notes and for more lengthy units, to make ‘review sheets’ based on the basic summary and main ideas.
i love nice pens just as much as the next stationery obsessed person (maybe a little more), but please don’t feel pressured to buy a bunch of stuff just because you’re starting a studyblr. your hard work will motivate you and others just as well with the $1 pens as with the $10 pens, i promise. if you really want to buy stationery because you earnestly love it then go ahead and buy it instead of feeling self conscious and awkward like ‘i like it a lot but other people might point me out for having nice stationery if i buy it’. if you really want to buy nice stationery but don’t have enough money (nothing to be ashamed of at all) try looking for cheaper alternatives. you can still be practical and on a budget and have nice, functional stationery. please remember that as long as it does it’s job, it’s gonna work, so try to work with you have. maybe you’ll end up liking the style or grip of the brandless pen more than the one of the brand name pen.
alright, let’s get to reality guys. people try to make their work look cute and successfully achieve that part but when they go back to actually read the material or go over their notes, start squinting over the words with adorable little bunnies around them or get distracted by the beautiful loopy swirls instead of paying attention to the actual information. please remember that functionality comes first!some ways you can make your work look nice but not too overwhelming would be to add small doodles relating to the concept on the side (helpful with remembering and cute!), maybe add a few colors (personally i feel adding too much color is super duper distracting so i stick to simple, similar color schemes but if you have a helpful color coding system then go ahead and rock your work in the rainbow~), and sticky notes are great for adding additional information or making tiny little note here and there and sort of ‘isolating’ those parts on a separate square if that makes sense.
okay, i have seen this around tumblr way too many times. often, people think that their handwriting isn’t nice enough and feel that they have to re-do everything over and over again until it’s perfect. please do keep in mind that your handwriting is beautiful just the way it is and that it’s a unique little part of you that expresses who you are.seriously, if you hung up your handwriting along with a billion others, anyone would be able to recognize that it’s yours because its so special and individual. it doesn’t help to practically disown your handwriting and constantly put yourself down because of it. instead, embrace it and use it proudly. however if you feel that there are some areas where it causes problems you want to improve, such as the fact that your teacher can’t read it, try to make your letters more clear, space them out more, and make them bigger or smaller so that they’re easier to read.
these are the four main issues i’ve seen around, and i just really felt like they needed to be addressed and given tips for. also i really need to add this one part for people who have nice things and font-like handwriting: there’s no need to be ashamed or to feel guilty for having those nice things and that kind of handwriting. i know i certainly felt that way sometimes, but really, if you have the resources then do what you want to do. this is for people out there who obsess over these things too much and get upset if they don’t fit an ideal standard of ‘studyblr aesthetic’.
good luck. you can do this!! ~hana from kageyama-studies
green - his head is so large but he’s got a good battle stance, his tail is a tad bit too small and akin to a limp noodle 5/10
red/blue - he looks like he’s doing shia labeouf’s “JUST DO IT”. thanks to this mewtwo I am ready for all of life’s challenges 9/10
Yellow - a proud boy, thrusting his pelvis forward for all to see, his tail is very high quality and good as well! 10/10
Gold - very good color and shading, he’s a bit plump but that is ok!! 8/10
Silver - the colors are a bit muted, but I like this one because he looks like he’s plotting something, mischievous as fuck I like it >:3c/10
Crystal - Look at this glorious glowing boy!! Magic Man!!!!! 10/10
Ruby/Sapphire/FR/LG - very determined mewtwo here, he points forward like jotaro kujo. yare/10
Emerald - he shrinks and expands? It looks interesting but the sprite animation is a bit strange 7/10
Diamond/Pearl/Platinum - this boy is aware of his surroundings, and he’s got a top notch tail to boot! 9/10
Heart Gold/Soul Silver - now, here he is! my favorite sprite of him!! he’s doin’ a wicked cool pose plus the colors are fantastic and pleasing to the eye! perfect/10
Black/White - i was always a little bit disappointed that they didn’t animate his heart gold/soul silver sprite, and honestly his animations don’t really fit with him too much, he just sorta bounces ya know? 6/10
X/Y - Now, color wise I do not like this mewtwo very much, way too muted, I prefer the deep purples from generations 5 and 4, but the true beauty comes from him being viewed from the back
look at how LONG that tail is!!! It’s tremendous, the tail I’ve been searching for this whole time! 11/10
Could you do a tutorial or give me some tips on how to digitally paint hair is the hardest for me thanks for your time:)
*Never color black hair with pure black, it makes it look bad and you cant put shades on it and, its very difficult to make good lights too. Its much better if you put like a dark gray or something like that but never paint it black.
*Is more preferable if you do not use very saturated colors for the hair, it’s just too bright and make it difficut to watch, putting away the fact that it makes it look very ugly if you dont know how to use that kind of saturated colors.
*Have fun painting it, take your time. I do, and tbh one of the best parts for me its painting the hair, it makes me feel relaxed.
I hope it helped a little bit at least (?)
also sorry again if you didnt understand, my english is a little crappy and my handwriting is very confusing for some people <:0
C is nothing like any other concert Nursey had ever been to. It isn’t loud so
much as full, as if every one of
Nursey’s senses is just bursting with sensation and he can’t do anything but
experience it. He doesn’t remember if he had anything to drink, but he feels
loose and happy like when he steals some of Dex’s tub juice because he really
doesn’t appreciate it as much as he should. Of course, the feeling could just
be from dancing, screaming lyrics he doesn’t know, being anonymous, other
worldly, immortal, just for a bit.
A hand curls itself around his wrist and he turns, grinning
widely when he sees Dex standing there, flushed from head to toe, jumping in
time with the beat. Dex grins back and Nursey laughs for no other reason than
he’s happy and needs to let the world know.
“Come on!” Dex shouts over the music, though Nursey still
doesn’t hear him. The only reason he knows what Dex is saying is because he’s
staring so intently at Dex’s lips. A little on the thin side, but sometimes
when he fusses with them the bottom one gets all red and kiss bitten, puffing
up a bit, and Nursey could write sonnets just on that bottom lip.
Author Note: So this is actually from a part of a story I wrote way back when Enzo first got injured on the Payback 2016 PPV. When I got this prompt, it was the perfect reason to finally finally finish this. It’s long and fluffy and I’m not sorry.
Add tag or remove tag, let your girl know! :) I know some of your follow this blog, some don’t, and sometimes Tumblr is good at tags/notifications and sometimes it’s not. So I’m just trying to help y’all out however I can!
You felt like the worst girlfriend in the world as you ran through the back hallways of the arena, attempting to make your way to the car bay.
You’d been in your locker room, finalizing getting ready in your ring gear, when Nattie had come in, asking if you’d been watching the current match. Truth be told, you’d been so busy being in your hometown, visiting with people and making appearances, that you hadn’t remembered to turn on the closed-circuit TV. You were too focused on getting ready for your own title match that night on the PPV.
But all it took was one sentence from Nattie for all of your focus to shift entirely away from anything to do with you.
A Stisaac drabble! You can read the rest of my drabbles over here at AO3. They’re mostly Sterek and Steter.
when Stiles is growing up, he wanders downstairs in the morning, yawning and
trailing his blankie, and there’s some kid sitting at the kitchen table who wasn’t
there the night before. Sometimes the kid stay a few hours, and sometimes a few
days, and then they’re gone again. Sometimes the kids are older than Stiles,
and sometimes they’re younger. Sometimes they’re fun, and sometimes they’re
quiet. Once, a girl bites Stiles so hard that he needs to get stitches on his
thumb. Mostly though, the sleepover kids are okay.
Stiles is eight when Isaac first sleeps
over. Isaac doesn’t magically appear in the middle of the night. He comes home
one afternoon in the back seat of Dad’s cruiser, with a plastic bag full of
clothes clutched under one arm.
Isaac is one of the quiet ones. He and
Stiles color until it’s time for dinner, and Stiles lets Isaac pick all the
good pens first. The ones that haven’t dried out because Stiles forgot to put
the lids on. They have mac and cheese for dinner, and Isaac goes to sleep in
the spare room. The next morning he packs up his clothes again, and Dad drives
him away somewhere.
The sleepovers stop when Mom gets sick.
Then she gets worse, and then…
Then she’s gone.
Stiles’s dad is gone too, for a long
time. He drinks too much. He falls down a lot. It hurts Stiles in ways he’s too
little to properly articulate, but mostly he thinks it’s because his dad is so
broken that he doesn’t see how much Stiles is hurting too. Stiles needs him, and his dad doesn’t notice. It
takes a long time for things to get better again.
There are no more sleepovers, and
sometimes Stiles feels like the strangers at the kitchen table in the morning
are him and his dad.
It’s not until Stiles is twelve that he
realizes those weren’t sleepovers at all.
So, for a happy HC After his death, Ardyn is finally able to reconcile with his family and get a big hug from his daughter:"We miss you, dada" This is probably never gonna happen, but it's nice to dream something happy once in a while
Oh dear you’ve gone and opened up a fucking crate of head canon feels here I go… Because I had a similar thought before.
A few quick disclaimers before I continue… First, I’m writing and drawing this within the context of my own head canon (because what else would I do?) so it’s up to your to swap things out for your own or…. you know… disregard all of it and tell me to go fuck myself. Heheheh… Second, a little background music always helps, and I came up with all of this while listening to the ending theme of FFVIII. It’s so perfect…. ah god I love this song. THIRD.. This post will give a little more insight to what I have here.
FOURTH I’M SORRY
Ardyn woke up gasping as if he’d not felt breath in ages. He had died, he knew. He had done it. But he was awake. He was… strangely conscious. Not again, he thought. I beat this… I can’t be…
His vision focused and he suddenly realized his surroundings. He knew this place, though it was a sore sight for the glory it once held. Around him were the scorched remains of his bedroom in his marital home. Izunia had burned it along with everything else tied to his legacy. He was on his old bed, a place he’d known numerous pleasures. Not just where he made love to his wife and others, but where his two children were born. Where countless mornings were spent wrapped in another’s embrace, wasting the day away. Where he slept, warm and safe. The silk sheets were now damp and moldy, or at least what little remained of them. Once brightened by vibrant color, the walls and decor were gray and decayed. Ardyn looked towards the windows but could only see a thick fog. It was as if there was nothing out there.
Slowly, he sat up from the bed and placed his feet on the ground. He spent a moment trying to understand whatever could be happening, but there was no answer. Looking upon this place was too much. He felt like destroying all of it, but at the same time, could never bring himself to actually do it. Before he could think too much about it, however, he heard something. A child? Laughing? He jolted to face the door and through it he swore he saw a young blonde girl rush by. Standing, he called “Who’s there?” No response. Cautiously, he crept into the hallway, seeking the figure he’d just seen but finding nothing but more ruined remnants of his once peaceful life. The staircase just a ways off, and he could hear more giggling below. He made his way.
The first thing he saw was his old piano. He’d play for his family and guests, whatever song they enjoyed most. He taught his son, Aiolus, to play and had just begun teaching his small daughter, Galena, to play as well. At least before everything had gone terribly wrong. Just behind the piano were the doors to the back yard, where he and his wife, Florentia, hosted numerous parties. How many times had he gotten so drunk and sang gibberish at the top of his lungs? Gods, there was no telling. Ardyn swore he could hear a joyous crowd out there at this moment. And yet, the area was shrouded and lifeless.
He continued to make his way, now coming to the dining room. There used to be many more chairs around the table, but only two were left, and sitting on them would prove hazardous. Against the wall was an old chest of drawers where they kept pretty much nothing useful. Ardyn slid his hand against the wood. It was rough and dusty. But as he touched it, he could hear voices echoing through his mind. Playful children, laughing, and jovial conversation with wine. A grimace grew upon his face. What kind of sick joke was this?
The last thing he’d expected was any sort of afterlife, but Bahamut saw fit to torment him further with an eternity alone in the shattered remains of his home? “So…” he whispered to himself, “You cannot get enough of my anguish? Well played…” He did have to hand it to the astrals. This was far worse than living in darkness in a mortal plane for so many centuries.
But there it was again. The innocent giggling of a child. Ardyn turned sharply in its direction, towards the foyer, and this time caught a decent glimpse of his guest. A young girl, with long blonde hair and straight bangs, wearing a white dress. She was smiling so warmly at him, and suddenly rushed off towards the front doors. He took off at once, calling out “Wait!”
He’d reached the wide double doors leading to the outside, but did not find the girl. She meant for him to go out there, he knew, but he was extremely hesitant. At least in here he had the comfort of knowing what was his. All that could be out there was possibly even more agony. And yet…. something about that child… Something so sweet and familiar. Something warm and trustworthy. His breath shook and his hand trembled over the handle of the doors. There wasn’t much more his mind could take… It had been so long…. It had been so horrible. And he’d done awful things just to be allowed to rest, and he didn’t care about any of that. He was glad he had done it. So there couldn’t be anything worth seeing beyond these walls…
When the prophecy is fulfilled, those in thrall to darkness shall know peace.
The words came to him from nowhere, as if the very walls spoke to him. But he knew that voice, and he remembered their keeper… Lunafreya. Was that who he saw?
Whatever was out there… he knew he’d eventually go through. Now was better than ever. Just get it over with… Ardyn sucked in a deep breath and swung the doors open in one fluid motion with his eyes shut tight, bracing himself for the worst.
Through his eyelids, he saw… light. Vibrant, bright light. And then… the sounds… of cheering.
Slowly he opened his eyes, his vision gradually adjusting to the sudden glow. And there they were… everyone. The streets were filled with familiar faces. People he knew. People he lived amongst. People he loved and cared for. People he protected from Izunia’s wrath and the starscourge. So many of them.. all before him once again. All of them in an uproar of ovation, laughing, yelling, crying… He knew all these faces, even in passing. This was his home. Everything was new and vivid, full of the life he remembered. Ardyn stood there motionless, lost for breath. The shock had rendered him dumbfounded. What was happening? What was this?!
Before any of this could take him away, he heard it….
The crowd dispersed to reveal the figures he’d mourned for centuries… There they were. Right before him. Florentia, Aiolus, and Galena. Ardyn fell immediately to his knees as his two young children rushed into him, holding him and crying as hard as they could. Especially Aiolus, who was always a sensitive boy. He felt their desperate clinging and pressed them against him, smiling and crying.
Florentia stood a short ways away, allowing her husband to adore his children once again. She had, after all, witnessed everything. There would be much to talk about, and she would love him all the same.
“Dad…” Ailous sobbed happily, burying his face into his chest, clinging to his coat as if for dear life. “I missed you… I missed you so much… Dad… I…”
“Papaaa!” Galena practically sang the word. She reached her tiny hands to grab upon him and laughed enthusiastically as she always had.
Ardyn held them so tightly… “My…. my… It’s really you….” There was no holding it back. He was crying so hard. But the feeling of his children in his arms again… it was too much. Though smiling, he sobbed into them. All of a sudden, everything… everything that had passed in his over two thousand year life came rushing through him. And now…. none of it mattered. He no longer cared. This… this was everything. Just like it had been. “I’m here… I’m home. I’ve….” He gasped between words, unable to compose himself. These were emotions he’d long forgotten. Feeling them now, in such abundance, was more than overwhelming. “I’ve missed you… so much. I love you… My sweet children… by the gods… I have missed you…”
In the middle of the moment, Ardyn suddenly became aware of a presence amid the crowd… He looked up and saw the figure beckoning his attention.
And there she was…
She looked upon him softly, and he could see her lips moving to speak. Though the distance between them was distinguishable, he could hear her as if she were standing right beside him…

Cully’s Short and Sweet Line-less Tutorial (Pt. 2) Hair
So I decided to go ahead and do a part 2 for the part one which covers hair. My warden is great for this because she has very unique hair with braids and a ponytail and almost always wears flowers in it.
I decided to try something new with this picture and I thought I’d go ahead and share it with you!
Step 1: Hair Flats.
Try not to get too intricate with this part. Just make it as much the general shape of the hair as possible. I unfortunately went a little too nuts and regretted that later.
Step 2: Hair detailing.
I did something a little different this time and took a page out of Britney Lee’s book (you can see my hair reference there in the corner :P) and actually created a whole other layer and color for hair detailing. This was all done with that same Blair Brush from the first tutorial at differing widths. I also didn’t like how her hair fell at the front in the first one so I changed it.
Step 3: Highlights, shadows and more details.
All I did here was give the base a shadow and add highlights to the light parts of her hair. Note though, you can add highlights to the base portion I just decided not to. I also gave her more wisps because wisps are cool.
Step 4: Flower Power!
Now time to move on to the flowers! My warden always wears flowers in her hair as her trademark so it’s time to add them.
First thing I do is create the base of each flower all on the same layer in the same color.
Step Five: Color Flowers:
Using the lock layer command (the little lock symbol at the top of the layers bar) we can lock the flower layer and begin to color them each individually. I tried to keep it simple but you can be more intricate if you want. Honestly its not necessary as I used the flowers in Aisling’s hair to simply give it some splashes color since it’s gray.
And that’s it for hair!
If there are any questions feel free to send me a message, I’m all ears and not so great at making tutorials.
I really enjoyed power rangers. It was super entertaining and my only complaint is that it took a little too long to get going. The characters were all interesting which surprised me. I wasn’t expecting too much in that department but I was super excited to see it.
I also can not get over the inclusion of the first autistic superhero. I can’t believe they cast a black actor to play an autistic character. The importance of having a black autistic superhero depicted in a mainstream film can not be denied. That casting choice was outstanding. Children of color have a hard time getting proper autism diagnosis and accommodations and representation is an incredibly important step towards changing that stigma.
I think a lot of the criticism it’s receiving is due to critics not being familiar with the original show. I thought the film stayed true to the source material and the changes made were creative
(Also the movie is legit a reimagining of the first ever episode of Power Rangers)
I love ur little lance doodle how did you color him like whenever I use a Coptic the ink comes pouring out and either my drawing looks too saturated or there'll be weird darkened patches where my pen strokes overlapped and later on too much ink
Well you’ll notice that I actually overlapped too on my drawing lol
It’s a little hard to get used to, but you’ll become better at avoiding this sort of thing with more practice ^-^ As for your other problems, have you tried doing your coloring all in one stroke? Taking it one section (example: the neck, an arm, the face, etc..) at a time while also keeping a bit of distance from the actual line can help a lot! Also if you’re getting too much ink, then try using the tip of your marker and press lightly so it won’t release too much ink. Good luck!
