anonymous asked:

Why do you stick so close to references? You obviously have the skill to invent, even when using references. You sometimes draw wings on your characters or add other surreal elements, your backgrounds are genius, and you have the best grasp of color theory I've ever seen. Point is, the skill is there. But most of your portraits are (for lack of better wording) you copying a photo. Is it intentional? It seems like a lot of effort for a lesser goal when most artists would strive for the opposite.

I think… you might be coming at it from the wrong direction.

I’m not an illustrator.

So instead of thinking down that road, and oh hey there’s Drew Struzan, and there’s James Hance and Phil Noto and Michael Whelan and Ralph McQuarrie, etc. All these guys who do exactly what you’re talking about…

I think it will make way more sense if you ignore the realism. And ignore the string of famous male illustrators whose work has obviously had a big impact on what you think art is supposed to look like and how references are supposed to be used

and instead come at my art as if you’re looking at a teenage girl’s locker, and the art is the magazine pictures she’s hung in there. 

If it wasn’t for the realism and the technical skill, you wouldn’t care at all about whether or not I’m wasting my time or how closely I’m copying photos. You’d just see the girl and her locker. If it was novice art, you wouldn’t care.

But when the girl is putting Rembrandt in her locker, suddenly it’s worth your time and questions.

So my “[greater] effort for a lesser goal” is the point. My art is a fangirl Rube Goldberg Machine (for lack of better wording) designed to dazzle your stupid ass.

Please write a short fic about tony catching peter drinking i would die omg

“Hey, Peter,” 

He froze, eyes widening as he heard the all-too-familiar sound of expensive leather brogues scuffing along the floor a few meters from him, and he turned quickly, brow furrowed into a deep V as he watched Tony wander up to him, all smiles and casual posture, hands buried in the pockets of his grease-stained jeans. He looked like he’d come straight from the workshop, stopping only to throw on a leather jacket along the way.

Why he was here at all, however, made no sense at all.

“T- Mr Stark,” Peter said, trying to communicate with him through eyebrow movements alone. If it turned out that he had to suit up and help out somewhere, he was pretty fucked, considering the fact he’d had a bit to drink at the party he’d been invited to.

Well. He said ‘a bit’. It was possibly more accurate to say ‘a fucking shit-ton’, but whatever.

Tony looked at him blankly, before shooting another smile toward the circle of people who were stood around Peter and staring quite blatantly at the both of them. “Hello, ladies and gentlemen, I’m afraid I have to take Mr Parker away. He’s an intern at Stark Industries, you know how it is. Lots of work, yadda yadda, okay bye,”

And before Peter could even open his mouth, Tony had grabbed him by the arm and snatched the solo cup out of his hand almost angrily, pulling him away from the group of people and through the crowds of rowdy teenagers that littered the huge house.

“Uh, Mr Stark, wha’dd’ya want me for, exactly?” Peter asked, speaking loudly above the blaring music and wincing at how slurred his voice came out.

It had been a weird month, okay. He was just trying it out. 

Tony paused, and Peter saw him purse his lips even tighter before beginning to walk again, guiding Peter through the crowds and holding him tight as he stumbled a little.

“Hey, Parker, leaving so soon?” Flash called out from somewhere to his left, and Peter stopped turning to face him as the other boy wandered toward them. “We haven’t even begun yet, Jesus, are you a pussy or what-”

“Kid,” and suddenly Tony had let go, spinning around and walking up to Flash, who seemed to suddenly recognise who exactly Tony was, because his eyes went hilariously wide and he stumbled backward a few steps. Peter snorted involuntarily, and he saw Tony turn briefly, before shaking his head and looking back to Flash, “it seems like you’re having an absolute ball here, but I’m gonna say something and I’m only going to say it once.”

Tony looked down at Flash, eyes harsh as he drew a little closer. “Leave. Peter. Out of it. Do you understand? He is not here for you to manipulate, not here for you to bully into trying out crazy shit for your amusement-”

“Tony, what the fuck,” Peter blurted, frowning and stepping forward, more than a little put out. He’d only just managed to get accepted by Flash and all the other popular kids, and Tony was just going in, ruining it all, “you’re not my dad- don’t tell me or my friends what I can and can’t do.”

Tony turned, eyebrows raised. “Friends?” He snorted, shaking his head and walking over to Peter once more, taking him by the arm. “You haven’t called in with Aunt May for two days now,” he hissed into Peter’s ear, “she’s worried sick. You are coming with me, right now.”

“No ‘m not,” Peter pushed his hand off, looking over at Tony in anger. “You are fucking….embarrassing me…. in fron’ of my friends-”

“They are not your friends!” Tony snarled, pulling his arm again, “your friends are all currently at home, worrying their asses off because this is not like you, Peter, and they didn’t know what to fucking do, so they ended up calling me. Now you will fucking follow me out of this goddamn place right now, or I am hauling you out.”

I decided against publishing your ask because I found it so offensive. You know who you are. Your opinion will not be considered. I honestly thought I already made it clear that I will do whatever I want. If your advice was wanted, I will seek it. So don’t ever ask me not to defend my friends.

anonymous asked:

Ok im probably gonna get hate for this. But honestly I'd like Ollie and Matty together. (Imo its unpredictable? But idk.) But then that would probs be weird for Tia sometimes... Idk I feel like maybe Ollie has a rough exterior but a sensitive I interior... Anyway on an unrelated note... You should make some of the characters from Daddy Dating Simulator... Because I saw Gil then I was like ok Ana would be the person to do this. I mean you obviously don't have to but you know... They'd be cute....

honey u won’t get any hate!!!! a lot of people think ollie and tia would be super awesome together!! i don’t think it would be weird for tia at all tbh - my mom always tells me that it’s best to have a friend in a partner, though i think going from best friends to girlfriends would be a bit of an odd transition :0 

and u hit the nail on the head with ollie, she’s got street smarts and is definitely rough around the edges, but she’s got an absolute heart of gold. i love her so much :’)

OOHHH gosh i could try! i don’t think i’d do them justice but i might just give it a shot hehe (would that be good stream material?? making the dads??) also ngl gil was inadvertently inspired by robert from dream daddy SO THERE’S THAT………………………………………

anonymous asked:

my friend is constantly telling me he's "gayer" than me. i'm a lesbian while he's a panromantic asexual trans guy, and he seems to think he's somehow more lgbt than me... like since when has it turned into a competition? lmao

I’ve sadly met people like this as well, mostly when I was in highschool. My advice is (and I know it might seem a tad harsh) is to stop being friends with him. I know, it seems extreme, but trust me. It took me forever to realize that if a ‘friend’ made me feel bad, made me feel uncomfortable, or I just didn’t enjoy being around them - I didn’t owe them my friendship, my time, or anything. In highschool ‘talking it out’ with friends usually just ends in them spreading drama. Obviously you don’t have to listen to me, but that’s my honest to god opinion on friends when you’re in highschool.

On the other hand if you’re an adult, he’s just acting like a child - You can try talking to him and explaining whats wrong, but if he won’t listen I would strongly recommend not being friends with someone who acts like that.

pettymotives replied to your post: you know, I’ve got a general policy of trying not…

Yeah, I stopped reblogging anything mad max fury road because a follower said it made them uncomfortable. It’s just something u gotta do sometimes

yeah - and obviously you have to balance your own needs and, like, right to have a blog that’s your own against other peoples’ but sometimes I feel like it’s something that’s relatively small that people could be a wee bit more thoughtful about.

The funny thing is I actually wasn’t opposed to Bucky being in Black Panther in a small role because it made some sense considering where we left off in Civil War

But every time I see “Where’s Bucky?” or “This was cool and all but is Bucky going to be in the next trailer?” I re-up my membership to Team “Throw the Winter Popsicle down the river and over a waterfall”

there’s something about even’s little nod in this scene 

because even knows. he’s not oblivious, he notices the way isak reacts to his presence, to him. he’s been noticing him for weeks, weeks before they first met. he saw the way isak was when he came over to his place the previous week, he saw the look in his eyes, the light in his eyes, he saw the way he smiled and laughed, he noticed the changes in his voice. he probably memorized his facial expressions and the things he said last friday. kept replaying them in his mind every single day, in class, before going to bed, when he was with other people 

earlier in that episode, when he came to give isak his snapback, in a matter of seconds, he understood that isak hadn’t told his friends he had gone to his place, he understood that he didn’t want them to know. because he sees and understands. he remembered the cardamom on the cheese toasties five weeks later, how they were sitting on the floor of his room as they ate them, he remembered isak saying he had a drop of water in his throat, he remembered isak talking about parallel universes. because he pays such close attention to isak and the way he looks and moves and speaks and all the things he says

do you think that even, who saw this boy on the first day of school, who was probably looking forward to seeing him even when it was just at school, in public, in rooms and hallways with other students, would not notice how isak was acting? notice the way he’s been looking at him the moment he showed up at his place for the pregame? the way he starred at him when he kissed sonja and looked at him straight in the eyes? how tensed he was as he told him about sonja and how they’d been together for years? the intonation of his voice as he said his okay’s (been together since we were 15. okay. can’t dump her. okay). do you think that even who’s been desperately trying to spend time alone with this boy he was falling for would not notice the smile that spread all over isak’s face when he realized that even was messing with him, the smile he was trying to stop it, in vain? do you think he would not sense his attraction to him? the vulnerability?

of course even notices. and since he came to see isak in his kitchen, he’s only been kidding, pretending not to be serious. but with that little nod, he grows more serious. with that little nod, it’s like he’s saying i see you, i see it, i’ve seen you for a while. it’s reassuring. it’s okay. it’s understanding. i know, isak. i know. me too
