what is this good looking

Ok so the Great British Bake Off has had an unexpected side effect on me. I absolutely love it. I also really love to bake, but I don’t get the chance often. I’m making a strawberry swiss roll to take over to my grandma’s on Friday and I just thought, “It’d be fun to try more of these recipes and food that I’ve never had.”

AND IT HIT ME.

My grandma is from Liverpool, but she hasn’t been back home for almost 20 years and it was ages before then too. I know she misses home and family a lot. Facebook has helped her keep in contact with them and she uses it all the time to talk to them, but it’s not the same. She’s been so far away from home for most of her life. Wouldn’t it be nice if she could just have a taste of it? I’m not the best baker and I learn by trial and error. But I think it’d be great and maybe lift up her spirits a little if I at least tried to bake food that she’ll recognize and used to eat when she was my age, food that she either hasn’t had in years or has to eat the Americanized version of it. No, it won’t be the same and maybe my Yorkshire puddings won’t rise properly and my biscuits won’t have the proper snap. But I can do my best! She won’t ever be able to go home again because of her health, so I can bring a little something to her.

Some people argue that Ouma was more interested in Kaito than Shuuichi, which seemed pretty delusional to me until I saw Kodaka's tweet on Ouma's birthday, mentioning Kaito from Ouma's perspective ? I'm not sure if the google translation is accurate but I think it said Kaito was his favorite. Did I miss something or is Kodaka messing with us ?

The tweet Kodaka made on Ouma’s birthday wasn’t about Momota being his favorite so much as it was about it being “Momota’s birthday”!

i can do a quick translation

今日はみんな大好き百田ちゃんの誕生日という事で、たくさんのプレゼントを送って貰ったみたいだよ。いやー、百田ちゃんは人気者だなー、羨ましいなー。

ごめんね、嘘だよー。
もー、そんな怖い顔で睨まないでよー。

Today is our beloved Momota-chan’s birthday, so it looks like a lot of presents got sent over. Wooow, Momota-chan sure is popularー, I’m sooo jealousー.

Sorry, that’s just a lieー. Oh come onー, don’t glare at me with such a scary face like thatー.

I substituted “our” to make it sound better in English but a more literal translation for the first line would be more like “everyone’s beloved Momota-chan.”

Basically, the tweet doesn’t really have much to do with who Ouma likes or doesn’t like–it was mostly about him messing around, claiming that it was Momota’s birthday and that all the presents were actually Momota’s instead (probably also Kodaka’s way at joking about how massively popular Ouma is, since his birthday was huge in the fandom).

I hope this helps clear things up, anon!

Updated tutorial? My advise is – use references! All those hands were drawn from the references, photos and life. There’s also loads of useful tutorials on drawing hands that explain how hands work. It’s your job to understand the anatomy and find a way of constructing hands that’s easy for you. And thank you! :)
