Some of you may have heard that the Disney corporation is responsible for at least one real, “live” Ghost Town.
Disney built the “Treasure Island” resort in Baker’s Bay in the Bahamas. It didn’t START as a ghost town! Disney’s cruise ships would actually stop at the resort and leave tourists there to relax in luxury.
This is a FACT. Look it up.
Disney blew $30,000,000 on the place… yes, thirty million dollars.
Then they abandoned it.
Disney blamed the shallow waters (too shallow for their ships to safely operate) and there was even blame cast on the workers, saying that since they were from the Bahamas, they were too lazy to work a regular schedule.
That’s where the factual nature of their story ends. It wasn’t because of sand, and it obviously wasn’t because “foreigners are lazy”. Both are convenient excuses.
No, I sincerely doubt those reasons were legitimate. Why don’t I buy the official story?
Fan art for @kazliin‘s fan fic Until My Feet Bleed and My Heart Aches! I am honestly so in love with this story and I scream every time she updates! This is what I imagined the scene in chapter 13 would look like, when Viktor *spoil alert* catches Yuuri taking his anxiety meds but thinks he’s doping.
Disclaimer: I can’t actually draw. Or shade. Or colour. Okay let me just go burn my tablet now.
Seriously, I struggled so much with human anatomy for this one, I’m pretty sure I’ll never be able to get it right. Hopefully kazliin won’t mind, with her being a med student and all. This is probably the only thing I have in common with a med student: hatred for the complicity of human bodies.
First off, i just wanna say thank you so much to everyone for all the super nice and encouraging notes! It always makes me to happy to see that my work is making people happy and your notes really help to motivate me to do my best at this comic!
Yep!!! That manga is one of my favorite things in the whole world so it really really influenced my comic.
To be very clear: I bought the shitty eBay Kali costume. The white tunic didn’t open so I made a new one. I repainted the gold detail on the jacket and replaced the buckles.
I was very disappointed with the original costume, my plan to to just start from scratch completely, but the jacket and skirt thing weren’t bad enough to justify that.
Despite only really making a few things, this costume still took me a week to finish between all the dog sitting I’ve been doing to save for my trip to Costa Rica soon!
okay, but the kevaaron ask you did, Kevin is sO petty when Aaron gets sick. i mean, concerned for his smol boyfriend and everything, but also so petty bc (despite everything) Aaron's main method of warding off sickness is glaring it into going away
OH MA N,,
listen. aaron hates being sick. he does not have the time for it. he’s a near full time student and an athlete???? do you know how much time that takes up??? A LOT. seriously, when does he sleep wtf
but yea. it starts out with the sneezing. it’s almost winter break, finals are coming up, and aaron is finalizing his early apps for med school. and he starts to sneeze.
he’s……….. very tired.
kevin comes back from class and sees aaron staring at a line of gigantic vitamins and several types of medicine for coughing, congestion, and fever. he watches aaron scoop them all up in one hand, take a deep breath, and throw them all back at once and wash it down with some orange juice.
aaron, quietly: i crave death
kevin, internally: ….what the fuck
aaron was already looking pretty dead from too little sleep and too many essays and practice with huge eye bags, messy hair, his shirt was even on backwards on tuesday, he’s trying,,
it’s like when you turn on the tv and there’s a documentary on, and you totally didnt intend to watch it but suddenly two hours later youre deeply invested in the lives of this family of lions. kevin is just. watching aaron with the same deep interest and slight horror that you get when you’re home alone at 4pm on a tuesday and you’ve seen this lion family eat like 6 times.
aaron, despite feeling completely run down and like someone stuffed his sinuses with balloons, keeps going to lectures and practice.
kevin literally walked into the kitchen to see him holding ice cubes under his eyes because they felt hot from his fever and his sinuses were swollen
kevin: …uuuuhhhhh are you-?
aaron: I AM IN PERFECT HEALTH THANK YOU
the first few days of aaron’s trudging
zombie mode through his routine, kevin is completely content to watch aaron suffer in vengeance for throwing all those cough drops at him when he was sick
but after the third time aaron nearly knees himself in the face while sneezing kevin finally caves
aaron tries to leave for class but his backpack is on the back corner of the top of the fridge. he cannot reach it. not even if he stands on the counter.
a sticky note on the fridge in kevin’s handwriting reads “take a fucking nap” with a little arrow pointing to the right
aaron looks over and sees vitamins and pills with a glass of water and another sticky note that reads “take ONE AT A TIME”
aaron has a weird feeling in his chest that has nothing to do with his cough (those are called emotions, aaron)
kevin spends the entire day alternating between staring at his phone waiting for aaron to yell at him and shoving it away in his bag to avoid texting to see if he saw the notes and stayed home
poor boy is at Anxiety Level 10 of 10 all day
kevin has a break between two of his history lectures, and while he’d normally be early to the next lecture to discuss the reading from the night before, but he jogs back to fox tower instead to check on aaron
aaron, after a small crisis and a very bad attempt at getting his backpack by trying to use a shelf in the freezer as a foothold, gave up and decided kevin had officially grounded him
so when kevin makes it back to the dorm, this is what he sees:
aaron in his team sweats, hood up, curled up on the couch clutching a mug of tea
his laptop open on the coffee table playing friends
so many tissues. holy shit.
that is definitely his duvet wrapped around aaron’s shoulders
kevin warms up a bowl of soup just to come over and tell aaron he’s an asshole for stealing his duvet and that he better wash all the germs off
then again, he’s nearly late for his lecture because he’s asking aaron if he’s been taking his doses of medicine correctly, what his temperature is, and the like
aaron: i am literally a pre-med student. i took the medicine. i will be fine. go to class, idiot.
kevin: ok but are you sure-
aaron: GO TO CLASS
kevin manages to get through his lecture without worrying after checking on aaron (along with the occasional “ross geller is such an idiot” text from aaron)
after that his classes are done and while walking back to fox tower he sees something and genuinely stares angrily through the window, concerning some of the patrons, before deciding fuck it and going through with his idea
he feels silly walking back into the dorm with a fancy herbal tea for aaron and a smoothie for himself but it is 100% worth it when aaron’s mouth twitches in a way that brightens his eyes and softens the tired edges of his face
Excuse me, but do you think you can give a tutorial on how to draw Alphys? You just draw her so well!
Not much into tutoring but I think I can try selling my soul out one time more.
Before I drew Alphys, I used to study the skulls of different species, from reptile, dinosaur, bird to mammal. All have almost the same skull and jaw, the only difference is their evolution being selected by nature over million years.
After that I began simplifying them into the geometric figures in order to become the useful bases for fictional characters or whoever I enjoy torturing to death. Yeah, see, the construction is extremely important here, yo. Unless ya studied this at art school.
But of course there’ll always be moments when you feel a bit frustrated, angry, while trying to figure out how to draw a character so perfect. But hey no worries, this does take plenty of times to get used, that either if you keep drawing the same character every day. In my case, took me like a few days or weeks. In the end your effort’ll pay off, trust me.
Also to be honest, below this picture, I do reaaaaally view Alphys as a dinosaur more than lizard. XD Cuz I luv dinosaurs so why not. And a lot easier to draw~ Heck she’s totally a badass for kicking Sans’s ass~~.
OhOhOhOh… Did I scare ya? :P That she’s nakeeeed?! No? Noooo?! XDD
-pout- But hey! Unlike artists who prefer to explore bits of “human” stuff, I like to consider the fact that, not only they’re monsters, but animals with their casual primal instincts. Basically no boobs or private parts there, absolutely nothing for y’or pervy eyes :>. Why? They’re made of magic, for Kori’s sake.
Ok, another image below, when drawing I always use the lines of motion/action, emerging the structure, aka the “skeleton”. It gives an effective gesture compared to a character being in a static pose. ^-^
And some progress below…. Then y’ur doneeeee~~
So here’s the previously requested part II of the “Me and the boys with handle it.” blurb I did a few weeks ago. Took me a little longer than the other ones I’ve done, but I’ve been back in school and trying to keep up with No Control, so it got pushed aside a bit. But, I got a chance to sit and write recently, so this came out! I’ve got a few other requests that I’ve got to do, so look out for those in the coming weeks, too.
Hope you guys enjoy! xx
*Image is not mine. It was honestly just my inspiration for this part xx*
“Bug, leave Mumma alone, please. She’s not feeling the best.”
Their youngest—well, soon to be middle—child pouted a bit at being told he can’t cuddle with his mother. And it broke Y/N’s heart a little, seeing him so put out by not being able to sit with her and her not being able to love on him properly, but she’s just so damn uncomfortable. She’d been having contractions all day, but it was in such irregular intervals that she knew she wasn’t in active labor yet. Which was annoying as hell, because she really just wanted this baby out of her already. She’s already two days past her due date, and she’s ready to just get it over with.
“But—” the little boy started, but Y/N cut him off, not unkindly.
“Just sit beside me, yeah?” she suggested, reaching out for his little hand. “We’ll watch some telly for a bit before Gran comes ‘round.”
