I WANT ALL OF MY ANIMAL YOUKAI CHARACTERS TO HAVE ANTHRO FORMS YES
Slowly working on loving my art for what it is regardless of skill. ;u; I know I have things to work on but there ain’t an artist on this damn planet that don’t have something to work on. I’m glad I’ve learned the usefulness of photo reference though, I’ve always felt dirty feeling like I was copying but that’s REALLLY not the case. I feel like I’ve stepped up a tier.
MY LOVER IS AN ANTHROMORPHIC RACCOON TYAT STEALS SHIT.
this period of the simpsons where homer is pretty clueless but still tries hard to be a good father because he does love his kids is my favourite, so many feelings
Something I really really liked about a few of the Homer/Lisa episodes in the earlier seasons of the show was how it paints a really sweet yet unconventional father/daughter relationship, basically in the way that Homer is a parental force to Lisa, so too is Lisa a parental force to Homer.
It’s really highlighted in one particular scene in the “future” episode “Lisa’s Wedding”, where Homer has a nice conversation with her just before her wedding.Homer: Little Lisa, Lisa Simpson. You know, I always felt you were the best thing my name ever got attached to. Since the time you learned to pin your own diapers, you've been smarter than me. Lisa: Oh, Dad -- Homer: No, no, let me finish. I just want you to know I've always been proud of you. You're my greatest accomplishment and you did it all yourself. You helped me understand my own wife better and taught me to be a better person, but you're also my daughter, and I don't think anybody could have had a better daughter than you-- Lisa: Dad, you're babbling. Homer: See? You're still helping me.
Lately I’ve been feeling the need to draw animals lately, and furries…. I really do like cute designs of anthro’s like cait sith from final fantasy 7… In my inspiration folder on Pinterest there’s better examples too. I really just need something to occupy my imagination for a while, and keep me drawing, working on characters and stuff for my comics and for stories can be hard while you’ve got school to juggle, especially when you feel like you want to relax after school from being casually burnt out. I can’t make any huge devotions until next semester, I won’t have a lot to do, I’m going to drop my audio course because I don’t need it and I don’t want it. Which will leave me with a lot more free time. But knowing me… It won’t mean ill be completely stopped… A comic project and a story is huge responsibility to take on but I still can slooooowly add pieces onto it. Till then, ill be working more on the story then the visual part of the comic development, and ill occupy myself with feeble delights like drawing adorable furries (Cus I’m secretly furry trash)
I laughed way too hard.

Let people ship any fictional ship they choose, like are you really gonna bully someone over fictional characters.
I need feminism because “Who hired a stripper” shouldn’t be the first thing said to me when I walk into a welding job.
women in trades are treated like such fucking shit.
NO I’M STILL STUCK ON THIS WHY WOULD ANYONE SAY THIS TO A WOMAN HOLDING A BLOWTORCH
This happens when you tell someone you are a female and work at a restaurant as well, literally EVERY single person I’ve told (Every single damn one) assumed I’d be a server, when really I’m in the back making all the food for the cooks and spending 5+ hours cutting/prepping meat in a freezer.
Link to full size, it’s a big one
I said I have a lot of thoughts about shoes and the woeful mistakes even seasoned professional artists make with them, and I wasn’t kidding. Here’s a lot of words about high heels, in a constructive way.

Oh wow, I never thought my jobs as orthopedic shoe papermonkey and artist would intersect, but a few added words of advice for ya.
1.A rocker sole is what you call it when you bevel a heel to make it hit the ground more smoothly as you walk. Ever noticed how old shoes tend to wear out at the back of the heel? It’s because that’s what hits the ground first, and if you don’t design the sole of your shoe accordingly, it gets really uncomfortable.
2. If the sole of a shoe is such that it won’t bend (thick platforms, steel shanks, whatever), then you NEED a rocker sole, or you’ll be stumping around like Frankenstein’s Monster.
3. If your character is missing toes, it WILL effect their gait. Seriously, back at my old work place, a toe filler was more expensive than two pairs of shoes. That crap is serious.
4. Ditto leg length discrepancies. If one of your character’s legs is shorter than the other, that’s okay! Their shoes can compensate for that. One shoe will just be on a platform. A platform lift can be as small as a fraction of an inch to… god, I think I encountered eight inches once? The trick becomes to have a supportive platform that’s not too heavy, at that stage.
5. If your character has a leg length discrepancy, for the love of god, DON’T JUST PUT THE SHORTER LEG IN A HEEL. As the OP shows, a high heel completely alters the flexion of your ankle and posture; having only one foot like that is SO BAD for you.
6. That said, there are people who can only wear high heels, due to muscle or ankle weirdness. It’s generally not a barrel of laughs, because being stuck in heels 24/7 is hard on the body, and a lot of things like orthotics aren’t made for heels and have to be specially designed. Don’t try to use that as an excuse for your butt-kicking babe to always be in heels.
Ooh, interesting! Thank you very much!
