which way

if you want people to leave you nice tags on your work… really the best way is to do the same to other creators… a little kindness can go a long way and very often you get back what you give. want kindness and excitement? give kindness and excitement. 

Considering taking Will as a middle name I can also go by sometimes bc Elly (short for Ariel atm) is constantly spelled wrong, but then people who are aware of how much I like Hannibal would Know Things About Me and I’d have to die

oh yeah I hate people making money off of others hard work especially since so many youtube animators I know are students or aren’t earning much at all


but i think even with compilations you wont end up making much at all

because it takes animators so long to make things usually longer than other content creators  and to really make an earning off of you tube you need to be uploading  10 minute videos at least once or twice a week.

and since speedpaints don’t garner many views either we are kinda stuck.

plus there’s the whole “your videos wont show up for subscribers if they havent watched your videos in a while) so if youre an animator and dont post for a couple of weeks when you do post less people will see it

I get comments all the time from people telling me on videos I uploaded months ago that they never got notified, youtube is a mess

This is another reason so many artists are turning to patreon its kind of a god send for animators. (Im so dang grateful for my lil handful of patreons you have no idea they help me save up for art equipment and getting my art made into prints and pins) 

but even then a lot of our subs dont have the money to support us directly on patreon  so its  like being between a rock and a hard place trying to earn money from your art, unless youre really famous or have a good job in industry or get a partnership  3rd party

okay, so last night I woke up at like 3AM and like…. when that happens, it usually means I’m hella in my feelings either about my own personal life or about Barisi lmao 

So, this episode got me thinking, and it took hours for my mind to conjure it up, but it reminded me of a story my boss back at college told me about his own experience with all of the obstacles involving deportation and immigration.To make a long story short: I’m inspired. Like…. More than I’ve felt since this season begun, So I wrote a small draft of fic (just an intro really) and I have ideas still floating around in my brain but if I can’t pull it off, which is very likely, I’ll end up just posting the bits and pieces of dialogue that were good, mostly involving the commentary/shade SVU threw at ICE and Carisi’s experience in dealing with them and then the shade/commentary Barba made about the US CJ system in general; those moments seem to run parallel to one another and it’d be interesting to dissect that, especially from Barba’s and Carisi’s perspectives.Those moments stand out to me the most for pretty obvious reasons and it’s gonna involve some research on my part. But I’m really excited about it??

SOMMERTIME! 

this will also be available as a print on my Redbubble soon! LINK

- Lance takes Keith to the beach for the first time and and treating them both with cold sweets. Lance is probably planning on getting Keith in the water one way or another but Keith knows that Lance is up to something and totally prepared… as always -

sisters so beautiful they reduce the self esteem of everyone who meets them

you know who this reminds me of?

these two nerds

  • Naruto: So, like, ever since Hinata confessed to me, people have been like- ya know
  • Sasuke: Hn
  • Naruto: And I'm just- I don't, like, I can't- ya know
  • Naruto: But I should, right? There's no reason I shouldn't, uh, ya kn-
  • Sasuke: Dobe, if you say "ya know" one more time
  • Naruto: I can't help it, I'm just so, so, ya know!
  • Sasuke: Why are you talking to me about this, idiot?
  • Naruto: You're the only one who hasn't said anything, ya know. Sakura-chan, Kakashi, Ino, Iruka, even Kiba have been on my case non-stop.
  • Sasuke: It's your life. Your choice. Do what you want. It makes no difference to me.
  • Naruto: But, but Sasuke, I'm just so... Ya know.
  • Sasuke: Fine, usuratonkachi. We'll talk.
  • Sasuke: Do you think she's pretty?
  • Naruto: Eto... *squints* I guess so.
  • Naruto: Actually, now that you mention it, Hinata's kind of a looker, huh
  • Naruto: But she's still not as pretty as- *glances over* Uh, other people.
  • Sasuke: Like who? Sakura?
  • Naruto: Yeah, Sakura-chan and... Someone else
  • Sasuke: ...
  • Sasuke: So the problem is that you have feelings for another person
  • Naruto: *blushes* Um... I guess, but I doubt you- I mean, this other person will ever, ya know, feel the same way, so I should just
  • Sasuke: Have you said anything?
  • Naruto: Well, no
  • Naruto: But after everything that happened, you- I mean, this person should get it by now, and if y- they don't, that probably means it's one-sided. Right?
  • Sasuke: Maybe
  • Naruto: Oh
  • Sasuke: Unless I -I mean, this 'other person' was thinking the same way as you
  • Naruto: Really? You Were?
  • Sasuke: Were what? I'm talking about this mysterious 'other person' who's apparently prettier than Hyuuga Hinata, which is -mmmphmm!
  • Sasuke: What was that, you moron?
  • Naruto: It's called a kiss, teme.
  • Naruto: Something two people do when they like each other.
  • Sasuke: ...
  • Sasuke: I'm not familiar with the concept.
  • Sasuke: Maybe you should show me again.
