art tips post

paperbooart:

for all the artists following me

  • draw fast. it’ll look messy for a long time but you’ll improve faster than if you spend 4 hours on every drawing
  • if you draw in pencil and have a habit of erasing all of your mistakes, try drawing in pen or marker. i know it’s scary but it’ll help in the long run (i’m speaking from experience)
  • try different methods and mediums but don’t worry about mastering any of them, just have fun
  • if you’re not rich, buy art supplies from the dollar store, not the art store (seriously. i go through a sketchbook about once a month and i’d rather spend $4 on one than $15)
  • there’s no wrong way to learn. you can copy other people’s art if you want to, just don’t post it
  • DO NOT worry about having a consistent style. do not. just draw however you want
  • if you want to make original characters then do it. don’t worry about if they’re original, or a good design, or if they have an accompanying story. make sonic ocs. do it. it’s fun and it’s not hurting anyone
  • try not to kill your back. stand up and stretch once in a while
  • make a folder and save all of your favorite arts for inspiration 
  • draw from life. draw your dog. draw your teachers. draw your desk. draw your own hands (seriously that’s the best way to get better at drawing hands)
  • in general, drawing from life or a photo is better than drawing from a diagram
  • draw whatever you want. draw youtubers if you like youtubers. draw undertale if you like undertale. when i was a kid i drew nothing but shadow the hedgehog and horses. everyone deserves to draw what they want without being mocked, and if people start making fun of you, block them and keep drawing
  • don’t expect to get any notes at first. don’t let it discourage you. if you want validation go show your art to your mom or your friends or your teacher or your grandma
  • take breaks, but don’t give up.

Human AU where English teacher Derek’s overbearing sisters make him a Tinder profile and he matches with Deputy Stiles Stilinski.

The first date is definitely as awkward as expected.

The second goes a lot better because Stiles tells Derek about his partner (he’s in the K9 unit) and Derek talks to Stiles about his favorite book (To Kill a Mockingbird which was also Stiles’ mom’s favorite)

On the third date they have to leave dinner early to go to Derek’s apartment, they don’t even make it to the bed for round one. 

The 7th date is a double date with Stiles’ best friend.  When he asks how they met they tell him it was at Starbucks because neither wants to admit they found each other on Tinder. (Years later they admit it because it’s a funny story and Scott get’s mad because he talked about their coffee shop meet-cute in his best man’s speech at the wedding).

Date 22 wasn’t really a date so much as Stiles meeting the Hale family for the first time.  After dinner they decided that Cora and Stiles’ friend Lydia can never meet or else they might take over the world.

The 29th date starts with Derek scared for his life because Stiles’ dad had his gun on the table the entire meal and ends with John and Derek making plans to go fishing.

Number 86-101 happen on an epic road trip from Beacon Hills to New York City while Derek is on summer break.  He made Stiles take a vacation because by then he’d been on the force for 5 years and only used 3 total vacation days and by then they’d been dating for 2 years, it was about time they took a trip.

On the 102 date Stiles propose in Central Park.  Derek pretended he hated how cliche it is was but Stiles knows he not so secretly loves big romantic gestures. 

After that Stiles mostly stops counting the dates, except for the big ones, like their wedding, their fifth anniversary, the day their daughter was born, the day their son was born, their tenth anniversary, and well, you get the picture

‘I was stunned by the business’: Fast food CEO says profits soared after minimum wage hike

And then something amazing happened…

surprising everyone, except for people who make at or near minimum wage and anyone who understands economics

Literally what every millennial has been asking for for years
Of course your fucking business does better when everyone has more money in their pockets
When we have don’t have the money to spend, we can’t fucking spend it, who’d have thunk?

More money flowing means more money flowing. Surprising.

Economically, the most useless people are the ones who have money and won’t spend it, not the ones who don’t have it and MUST spend it.

reblogging again for that last important fact

This is one of those articles where I want to be like “water is fucking wet” but I know there are so many people who will not acknowledge this shit until they hear it from the people they’ve been trained to trust by capitalism.

So it’s entirely a necessary article. It really is. There’s a huge audience for whom these kinds of articles are necessary. It’s good to have them, and to spread them. The writers were right to write it and the publishers right to publish it. Information is power, and having more easy and accessible stories like this from people that broad audiences find immediately trustworthy or authoritative.

But also WATER IS FUCKING WET.

When I killed him, Angel was cured. Your spell worked at the last minute, Will. I was about to take him out and… something went through him… and he was Angel again. He- he didn’t remember anything that he’d done. He just held me… Um, but it was… it was too late, and I, I had to.

you know that feeling when you’re on your period and you take a shower and you feel so clean and relieved and nice but then as soon as you turn the water off it’s a race against you, gravity and time

I swear the last line made it feel like the plotline of an action film

It is a period drama

Harry Potter/Avengers AU

The Avengers are a team of Witches and Wizards fighting against the Dark Lord Thanos. 

Tony is the mad Wizarding inventor who is a genius with a wand. Bruce is a part-time healer, full-time shape-shifting werewolf. Clint and Natasha are Unspeakables. Thor is a Quidditch beater. And Auror Steve has one hell of a shield charm. 

(Oh, and Loki is a Death Eater, which no one is surprised about)

Just needed to add an imperio’d Bucky as the Winter Sorcerer and Peggy in Steve’s compass…

image

Oh! And Peter going to Hogwarts having Harry Potter like adventures. And Mad Eye Fury is Head of the Department of Mysteries…

image

And T’Challa, who is from the completely magical kingdom of Wakanda (and has an Animagus that is a black panther). And Scott, who has been incarcerated in Azkaban.

image

Oh, and I missed Quidditch Warrior Thor the first time (who usually prefers being a beater) so here he is with Wanda, who is a defected ex-Death Eater

Elegant Floral Handpainted Ceramicware Coffee Cups by Yevgenia Davidoff

Artist Yevgenia Davidoff hand paints elegant floral and nature inspired designs on dishware. From ceramics to glass, her delicate work adorns the surface, resembling realistic pressed flower illusions.

The works thrive from a concept of art being used in every aspect of life because of its ability to enhance the senses. The graceful dishware set turns an ordinary tea into a surprisingly special experience of food and art mixed together as one. In this case, Davidoff teases our visual senses and taste senses by painting delicate images of flowers, vines and leaves entwine around plates, cups, mugs, jugs and tumblers. Davidoff’s quaint teaware and vases can be purchased in the online shop Etsy.
