All hail showers, the worlds greatest source of inspiration.
It’s April 1st, and Nicky decides to go on a pranking spree
This naturally starts a prank war
What happens during this prank war is actually not important to our story, so I’ll leave that to you guys.
What is important is that Neil keeps getting pranked because he doesn’t know what April Fools is.
At the end of the day Nicky explains and he just goes “oh”.
Ya know, that kind of “oh” that really means “oooh I should do that"
Well the foxes forget all about it.
But Neil doesn’t.
See this whole post is born from the fact that we, as a fandom, seldom talk about Neil spending nearly a decade switching personalities like most people switch clothes.
Not Neil tho he’s better with personality than clothes I mean Jesus fuck kid, jorts?
What I’m getting at here is: Neil is fucking amazing at impressions.
Which the Foxes find out the next April when Neil shows up to practice in the morning with black hair, green color contacts, and a tattoo of a chess queen on his cheek.
Kevin is horrified.
The upperclassmen are delighted.
Nicky starts laughing literally every time Mini Kevin opens his mouth.
Aaron acts like he doesn’t care but he secretly records the whole thing with his phone and it’s gold.
He doesn’t show it, but this is the first thing Andrew’s found genuinely funny since he got off his meds.
Neil doesn’t break character once, no matter how many times Kevin tries to trip him. His imitiation of Kevin’s voice is perfect. He berates Andrew for his eating, criticizes everyone and everything during practice, real Kevin included, and mutters curses in French whenever something doesn’t go his way.
The foxes would’ve gotten tired of it quick if not for real Kevin acting NOTHING like himself for all of this. It’s like Mini Kevin stole his personality.
Right after afternoon practice Kevin gets a phone call from Jeremy.
Aaron uploaded the video to youtube and it got over a million views in under an hour and a half. The trojans are watching it on repeat. Jean laughed so hard he fell back from his chair and hit his head on the floor, rendering him briefly unconscious.
Kevin doesn’t tell anyone about this.
(Not that he needed to. Jean already called Renee and told her the story between fits of laughter.)
It makes the evening sports review channel news.
But by next morning it’s back to regular Neil.
And that’s the story of how Neil was invited to guest on Saturday Night Live
yeah sure the game is a month away and we know nothing of the cc, little of the story and nothing about Ryder’s personality/motivations, but we still have those head canons tho. Plus I love these so get to it.
Skin (Color, blemishes, tattoos, ect):
Misc physical attributes:
Preferred romance option:
Relationship with Alec & Sibling (Do they get along? ect.):
Projected BFF (The squad mate who isn’t bae but you always take):
Other (What else should we know about your Ryder):
salut Yam! I wondered... how did Papyrus and Mettaton Meet for the first time in your headcanon?
hey anon ^3^ ohoh I got a comic for that! I’m still wondering in what format I should do it tho, should it be in B&W or colors? Strip comic or Doujinshi? I think I’ll need to make a poll or something XD
Hi zephyo, sorry for bothering you but I was wondering how do you tackle learning? I've stopped drawing because I was overwhelmed while learning the fundamentals of art, but I want to start drawing again :) Btw I've been following your art for about two years now, they're really amazing so keep up the good work <3
omg nice anons are never a bother!
I try to make learning fun. Boring learning is ineffective! You want to be intrinsically motivated to learn - aka, you want to learn about color because you enjoy learning about color, not because you want to make a bombass portrait and your colors seem to suck <- you’re not learning about color for the sake of color.
So this is what I do nowadays: whatever I’m in the mood for - drawing beautiful nekkid ppl or seeing the nice dichotomy of cool greys against red - I do. I shut off all distractions - phone, games, that nice cheesecake ooh so tempting - and with the aid of good resources and motivating music, I draw for hours. And I enjoy it.
Here are some good resources:
All of Andrew Loomis’s books (anatomy) (yes there are PDFs online.. if you can buy you probably should tho cuz they’re so good)
Perspective! for Comic Book Artists by David Chelsea (perspective)

hey guys i’m back again with another drawing tutorial. this time we will be drawing Ashton
step 1: as usual, begin with a circle and for the head
step 2: draw in lines for the neck and shoulders
step 3: to make ash’s bandanna, draw a slightly curved rectangle that runs the whole way across his forehead
step 4: now it’s time to draw his hair. begin this by making two curvy lines that face to the right
step 5: continue drawing ashton’s curls by making a series of curving and bending lines that face in different directions. this creates his messy curls.
step 6: finish the hair by adding two tufts behind his ears, some curls sweeping over his bandanna, and some sideburns
step 7: add in the eyes and mouth. in this drawing, ashton is sticking his tongue out. (you can now erase your guide circle if you have not already)
step 8: we will now start the body. start by drawing a cross or a “t” shape, and add in ovals for the arms (the picture below explains it much better)
step 9: to make ashtons “rock hand” draw a guide circle at the end of his right arm, then make 4 ovals for fingers (I never draw all 5 fingers lol)
step 10: the legs are basically two rectangles that should be equal in length (if not slightly longer than) the torso area.
step 11: add in minor details to the pants and shoes and color if you want. wow now we r done that wast too bad was it even tho i’m shitty at explaining
Calum tutorial will be coming soon. maybe later tonight, maybe in a few days idk. anyway, you can request tutorials or drawings if you want. im thinking about doing a coloring tutorial once i finish 4/4 what do you guys think?

1. what is your favorite color to work with? Blue! Tho maybe it should technically be purple? I use purple mostly for effects and all that jazz.
3. what song(s) do you listen to when you do art? Usually instrumentals or the soundtracks for the thing I’m drawing for- music with lyrics is too distracting, makes me wanna sing along and interrupts the mental image, haha!
