Exactly. Learning to render realistic anatomy is like learning how to play your scales…. Once you’ve got the basics down, then you can embellish and put some soul into it. 

Something I truly believe in when it comes to art.

THIS FOREVER.

This will totally be me as a parent. (Also why I live in Washington state.)

I didn’t know which of these was best so I went with all of them. Background based on Mr. Gaiman’s fantastic jacket designed by Kambriel. Anyway, lovely bit of advice, really take it to heart.

One of my favorite quotes of all time.

If this is done in one of those amazing typography things, I am so printing it out and putting it in my office next to my Cult of Done Manifesto.

Okay, great, but can somebody tell me WHO THIS IS??

People cannot help it!

I would also like to add that the term illiterate is mean and hateful. People cannot help that they don’t have a father!

Mmmmmmmm. This irony tastes good.

You shouldn’t expect us to study for this dumb class. I have a lot more important things to do with my time then study for a stupid class.

Oh man, I hear this one almost EVERY DAY at school. Why are those people in college, again?

The best thing. END THE FETISHIZING OF POC!! IMPORTANT

This. For a while at my school there was a semi-rumor going around between some of my classmates that I had a “thing” for Asian guys. Because I have one male friend who is Chinese. And I was teamed with him on one assignment when we met in a Drama class. And we sometimes have lunch together, when our class schedules allow it. Yeah, I don’t get it either.
As a more serious example, and kind of the other side of the coin: I also have a schoolmate (who I met in that same Drama class, oddly enough) who is Japanese, and she is CONSTANTLY filled with anxiety that EVERYTHING SHE DOES at this American college she’s going to will be interpreted as being sexual and/or used for someone’s fetish fuel. She’s one of the sweetest, gentlest people I know, and also one of the most tense and unhappy.
To sum up: Please stop being assholes about PoC.

Since people often ask “Alright, well this is fantasy! Why can’t we have boob shapes in plate armor?!” I decided to make a post about it. My frustration has nothing to do with historical inaccuracy and I’m all for imagination and freedom— but I’d like to…
