Eamonn/Lucas; memories

Eamonn knows pain. He has broken half the bones in his body and bruised the other half. He has been stabbed, and burned, and strangled, and he cut down his own king and queen in cold blood because a stranger told him he had to.

He has gone numb, over the years. He put his lion helmet away, after he turned regicide. He had none of the courage of a lion, to do that.

So the bright bloom of pain when he sees Roan in a nothing town is unexpected. The punch and fire of the witch’s weapon is even more unexpected.

Roan did not know him, did not know his own name. Eamonn clings to that thought as he rides painfully back to the capital. He does not trust his men, and he does not trust himself, and he is exhausted with it, but not so exhausted that when the sawbones pulls the twist of metal from his shoulder that he doesn’t see the flash of fear that goes with the Wizard’s memory.


Eamonn does his best not to remember things. He works hard to forget who he was, before the Wizard. But he has never been good at forgetting. He is a coward with a good memory.

Roan is a brave man with no memory.

I've done photography for some time now and i just posted (on instagram) my first black and white (i have problems with them), my first edit (surrealistically edited), and most nerve wracking of all, my first poem, which i wrote based on the photo (in my second language). I'm well out of my art comfort zone today. I'm going to post it here too if you want to see. (i'm not proud of the poem but it's there) Also i might have send you an anon ask the other day about how glad i am that you're back.

keep taking risks with your art!!! ill literally never get tired of seeing your photography.

youtube

Hi everyone! In my past tutorials, I showed how to paint over 3D models to speed up the drawing process (for artists who hurt their hands or just want to put out more art in a shorter period of time for comics). In this tutorial, I’m using a photo base instead of a 3D render.

The differences are it’s harder to control the lighting in a photo (hence the extra editing in Lightroom), and it’s harder to extract lineart. in 3D you can just render the lineart, but photos can’t do that. I mentioned the Filter Forge plugin in this video which I used for making the background look painted, although not demonstrated in this video, Filter Forge also has lineart extraction filters. I’ll probably be showing the lineart feature in the future :)

I’m thinking of doing short narrated videos of specific techniques in the future, so stay tuned! (I need to work up the courage to record my own voice lol)

#cat wants affection so badly #so so so badly #but she has no idea how to ask for it #even with kara she has to start with the pretense of criticizing her hair #pull a face so that kara doesn’t know that cat just wants to be close to her #to reach out and touch her friend while she can #which she does until she realizes what she’s baring in the action #flattens her hand and jerks back when she meets kara’s eyes #and what makes them so perfect #is that kara doesn’t just know what cat’s doing #she understands #kara knows what it’s like to be hesitant to touch someone you care about #cat is scared because of how vulnerable it makes her to show how she needs someone #needs /kara/ #and kara used to be afraid because of how vulnerable other people were to her strength #and so she barely makes cat wait a moment before she pulls her in for a hug #one cat falls into #closes her eyes and breathes out in relief and comfort and connection #and twice now when kara’s squeezed cat tighter with those too-strong arms #cat’s tightened her grip right back

La Douleur Exquise- (n.) the heart-wrenching pain of wanting the affection of someone you know you can never have.


November 16th, 2016

Today was the day that your best friend was getting married. Today was the start of his new beginning, of his new life. You were there, standing in the church’s dressing room behind the seated bride, weaving lavender throughout her braided hair. She stared at herself in the mirror across from her. The joy in her eyes and the smile on her lips made your heart drop with a pang. It could have been you sitting in that silky white dress, unable to wait for the union between you and Jimin. Your eyes shifted from the bride to yourself; you held an empty smile with a vacant look in your eyes. Your mind was simply distracted by the fact that you were losing Jimin forever.

He had been your first love. Your only love.

The sky outside the church was a marvelous soft blue splattered with crisp white clouds. You imagined yourself as the bride, walking down the aisle towards Jimin, who wore his best black suit and tie. His eyes turned into crescents as he shone his brilliant smile, and you felt your heart wrench when you realized that that was a dream. A dream that would never come true.

You were snapped back to reality when the bride had spoken up. “Why are you lost in thought, silly?” She looked at you through the mirror, staring at you with her big doe eyes. She was innocent; your brain couldn’t think anything ill of her, but your heart wouldn’t let you say anything good either.

You smiled and looked down at the bride’s long hair, enjoying the aesthetics of the purple and black. The bride, Kim Minhee, was no doubtingly beautiful, with her luxuriously long hair and her beautiful eyes, anyone would have fallen for her. The lavender braided in her hair was meaningful to you, and to your small world you had built with Park Jimin.


August 8th, 1997

The calming crunch of leaves in the dark yet calming forest had eased your mind of all your worries. As a seven year old, you didn’t understand how hard life was going to get; the most you had to worry about at that time was losing your books and finding something to do in your free time. You walked deeper and deeper into the woods while admiring the beauty of the tranquil labyrinth. The bark of the trees had moss on one side of it, with undergrowth surrounding the bottom of the tall and lanky groves. From afar, you saw a pop of color separate itself from the emerald greenery, and you ran to it. The crushing of the autumn leaves echoed throughout the forest as you got closer to the beautiful purpley color, which turned out to be lavender. Around a grove of trees were bushels of lavender growing; their color brought happiness to you, along with their alluring scent. You bent down to slightly touch the tip of the flower with your index finger, gently feeling the small petals of the flower. All of a sudden, a rustling sound came from somewhere within the forest. You jumped up and gasped; it was usually you wandering the dark woods by yourself because everyone else had been afraid of the dark tales involving the forest. Some were about witches holding sacrifices in the heart of the forest, and others were about lost ghosts trying to take over other people’s bodies.

Looking out for students

It’s really easy for me to get frustrated with my undergrads, especially now that I teach over a hundred in a week. At my core I am an introvert, though I have a distant background in performance so when I’m in front of people I want to go all out, which exhausts me and makes me grumpy real quick. I get irritated when they’re late (which is fair, they need to be on time), their constant questions run me ragged when I literally just talked about this in the lecture, and when they don’t have their lab book by week 2? Come on now!

I have one student who checks all of these boxes. We’re supposed to give zeroes for being late, and not having the lab book on the second week should be a zero too.  He’s a really nice kid though, respectful and apologetic, and seems to be pretty smart. So I asked why he didn’t have his book yet. It’s only $12.50 at the bookstore. He said he was waiting to get paid before he could buy it.

No way is a nice, smart kid going to get a zero in my lab just because he couldn’t afford a book. I sought out a spare copy for him and told him to not be late to lab again. 

Fellow instructors, look out for your students. Don’t be another cog in the system that screws the vulnerable (this student is also black). And students, please talk to us! I know this stuff is hard to talk about, but if you don’t we might just assume you’re a slacker. I don’t like to assume the worst about people. I don’t get any joy out of penalizing students for blowing off lab. I want you to learn from me, and I will do everything I can to make it accessible to you.

I won’t pretend I solved all of this student’s problems, or that I deserve a Gold Star in Allyship. The least I could do was to not be complicit. The best we all can do is recognize moments like these and make the right choice.

Theory Time

Obviously it’s to early and anyone they try and make look guilty obviously isn’t ..
Anyways,

So Cheryl said Jason was “suppose to come back”

Meaning Jason and her were on that boat ride with a plan(?) and pre determined story to make everyone think he was dead(?)

She also asked him if he was scared before they got into the boat (to which he said no.)

Is it possible Jason saw trying to go see Polly? (Maybe to help break her out)
And Is it possibly he did do that and Polly is now missing (which is my mrs. cooper freaked out on Betty when she said she wanted to see Polly).

Edit: I had a friend point out a possible reason that Jason could be going to see/break Polly out, could be because she’s the one that’s pregnant.
My hand hurts but I am happy.

My fingers and wrist ache from hours of drawing. But I am so content that I want to cry.

I did not realize how much I had missed drawing.

I lost all my motivation to grow as an artist sometime before I reached my twenties. I did not “grow out of it” - I still wanted to draw. I just couldn’t make myself do it anymore. It had became a shore. 

Around that time I fortunately found video editing which became my new creative outlet. Now, years later, it remains a big passion of mine.

But I still missed drawing. Sometimes I felt inspired and could manage to scrape together a finished piece, but we are talking 2-5 drawings per year.

So my new years resolution for 2017 was simple: to draw more. And I have. Every day I make myself draw something. And I do it. No matter what.

It was hard in the beginning, but just a week later I notice a difference. I don´t care if it´s mostly fanart, if it sucks, if it´s just OK, if I am nowhere near my idols.

All I care about is that I enjoy drawing again.

I have missed that feeling so much.
