My tauren shaman, Kailis, affectionately referred to as ‘Papa Kai’ Felt like I finally needed to draw him properly. (No, of course I haven’t finished it. When do I finish stuff for me?) I call the pose “Dull Dynamic”… Like.. Dull surprise. It started out much more… movementy…
Tegar, my other orc warrrrrooooaaarrr. LOL another portrait.
:| Much better than the portrait I did of him 6 years ago. aaahahaha so much better. Nice to know I’ve improved. Tegar is Asok’s son, though he didn’t meet him until recently. Learning he was from a family full of shaman made him feel like a blank in a box of live rounds. (PS: he has some talent, he just doesn’t know it. /le shrug)
A friend requested I make this, and so here it is, and I offer it to anyone who needs it, with all the authority vested in me by whoever vests these things. Print it out if you need to.
The best art advice ever given to me—ever, ever—was “Don’t be afraid to make bad art.”
You will make a whole lot of crap in your time. Some will be truly awful and some will be merely mediocre. And that is totally normal and totally fine and for the love of little green apples, just keep going, because that’s the only way I know to get to the good stuff eventually.
(I normally feel horribly egotistical mentioning my awards, but I think this counts as using that power for good.)
okay but why don’t more people talk about Night at the Museum like
poc characters and people being portrayed by poc people
this movie is so good
and it has one of the funniest, best, most ridiculous friendships in movie history
and you have Robin Williams as Teddy Roosevelt I mean
and if all that didn’t convince you there’s also a t-Rex skeleton that plays fetch with one of its own ribs
Uro’maak. Figured he needed something better than just a squawk-face pic. BV… Still in progress… I never get anything finished on weekends…
Does anyone else feel really guilty when they start talking about their own feelings and then immediately regret saying anything because you just feel so annoying and pathetic and ugh
Hali is kind of a grouch but he’s got his reasons
When someone sets a boundary with you they are saying “no.” No means no. Do not push people on their boundaries or ask for explanations that are not readily given. Doing these things indicates that you do not respect their boundaries. For many people, saying “no” once, setting a boundary, is difficult enough. Do not put them in a position where they must repeatedly do so. No means no the first time. Pushing them on it suggests a hope that you can wear them down, which is problematic at best and predatory at worst. No means no.
i would follow you to the ends of the earth with only mild complaining
