- Girls: *buy merchandise*
- Boys: OMFG fake geek girls! You're just doing this to get attention!
- Girls: *don't buy merchandise*
- Execs: We don't want girls watching our shows, they don't buy the merch.
- Girls: *turn out in massive numbers for comic book movie adaptations*
- Execs: We don't need to make more female-lead movies, girls are already turning out for the white men.
- Girls: *don't watch comic book movies*
- Execs: Why would we make a female-lead superhero movie? No one will watch it! Girls don't even like this stuff!
I’ve got a separate account running for fanart, for those of you not aware. It’s currently overwhelmingly Naruto-dominated (because most other things I follow are ALL ON BREAK AT ONCE and also I’m having a middle school nostalgia relapse), but it’s actually just a general blog for all my fanish stuff so I’m not spamming my followers here with it. But yea if you’ve got any desire to see that type of art stuff… there it is.
(PS I love the hell outta Kyle T. Webster's natural inkbrush; I've overused it by now but I can't stop, it feels just like being able to shade with pencil to me)

timing’s a little odd in this one; might bother to fix it later, might not
Anonymous asked: I realize the best thing to do when stuck on poses is to study life, people watch, take classes, get friends to pose, etc...but do you have any suggestions for online sources when stuck in doors and you feel like an idiot posing in front of a mirror? ;A; I'm trying to break through a rut and you have such a great, fluid grasp on anatomy!
I think photo reference is a fine resource. There’s a lot of arguments about whether photo refs are good for beginners & intermediates, but I’ve never really understood the argument against it; always seemed like some fluffy fine arts “live reference gives your piece life!” sorta junk. Look up anatomy tutorials, books, etc. Learn how the body works, practice, go between anatomy drawings and figure studies. Maybe there’s youtube videos for gestures and/or anatomy??? Seeing the movement of a body dose help so maybe look into that~
Putting this here in case some of my followers would find it useful, too:
If you haven’t seen it before Posemaniacs is a really useful resource for artists, and while it won’t beat life reference of course, it offers anatomically-accurate 3D models with full 360’ turnarounds of a FUCKTOOOON of poses for both male and female-gendered models. They update it all the time with more stuff, and they’ve been adding in different body types and skin/bone/muscle options last time I checked by. They also have fully-rotatable models of posed hands, feet, heads, and other typically troublesome bodily features. They ALSO also have ‘practice’ programs like 30 second (or other) ‘timed poses’ that automatically change to a different angle/model/pose/etc to mimic a classroom exercise experience. There’s probably even more on there I haven’t noticed yet.
Really a great thing to know about.

If you leave your room uncleaned for too long, the dirt and dust will give a good growing place for Doorowls. No one knows how it happens, they just sprout out and start strolling in your apartment making notes and comments on everything you do. You can make good friends of them, but usually they just keep you awake all night talking about the weather or your tapestry or what are you going to eat tomorrow for breakfast so people just throw them out at some point.
Omg I want one
We’ve started doing the Face Off prompts along with the contestants as we watch the show (design-wise, anyway). I picked the Vodyanoy for this week’s Cryptid challenge.
Quickie sketch, might bother to flesh it out sometime if I get bored.
