MY ANACONDA DON’T WANT NONE UNLESS YOU GOT BUNS HUN
Lilith with a snake (1886), John Collier / Anaconda, Nicki Minaj
Possibly one of the best characters to ever be on TV
Salem was such a good character no one cared he was a bad puppet.
This character was the reason I expected that someday my cat was going to talk to me.
people in high school used to call me “succulent tendril” due to my habit of sprouting rather succulent tendrils from my body that classmates could pick and consume, to their endless delight

Going on right now in Ferguson: Police are raiding a church that has been stocked with medical supplies, food, and tear gas recovery kits for community members engaging in protests. This cannot be allowed to continue.
Stand up, speak out.
the police in ferguson are gonna drag this out as long as possible because they’re smart enough to know that the longer it drags on, the less the media will cover it, the less people will care, and the less they have to be responsible for. they don’t want the conflict to end because if it ended now, there might still be some accountability demanded. they know if they can make it drag on for another week or more, that every day it continues they’re less and less likely to receive any punishment for human rights violations because public interest will continue to drop. they’re tiring out and exhausting any defiance or anger.

Clara and Troian are really sweet together, and it was good to draw them being sweet together.
Anonymous asked: How do you draw poses?? You're art is always so great, I want to learn how to draw from you so badly!!!
wow thank you so much! This past year my drawing teacher taught us a technique that really improved my figures. Using this technique (and practicing it a LOT) I’ve been able to draw poses a lot easier. Once you get a general idea of how the body works, you can use your knowledge to pose it however you want.
This isn’t how he taught it to us verbatim, but here’s how I’ve been using it. Now keep in mind I was taught by someone who knows a LOT more than I do, so if these tips don’t make sense, feel free to ask me to elaborate!!! They make sense to me because I learnt from someone who was able to explain in much more detail, but in the end I’m regurgitating them short hand, so they may not be helpful.
Now, I tend to make my ribcage too thin towards the end, and my hips too wide, but the general rule is they should be the same width, and the ribcage area should taper as it goes down.
Also, you can include the line for the pecs / end of ribcage to give your torso’s more shape.
What I drew above is the male torso / pelvis. I’ll go into the female pelvis / torso a bit further down.
as you can see, the spine placement is similar to the neck placement.
The thigh and the calves should be the same length. I have to double check myself often because I tend to make my calves too long and my thighs too short :p
As you continue to practice these figures, you’ll find you may make similar mistakes, so youll know what to look out for :)
when the legs are bent (this goes for arms as well) sometimes it helps to fill in the gap between the two segments with a dotted line. This can help prevent you from making the gap (and your limbs) too long.
Here’s a REALLY shitty way of drawing the back. To be quite frank I never practiced this enough, so I’m kinda crap at it. But I figured I’d draw it anyway.
The female torso is more shapely than the male torso, but one thing my teacher didn’t cover that I want to emphasize is you can combine any and all elements to make your figure. A female body does not have to have this much va-voom. He really tried to pound into me that my female figures didn’t have enough emphasis on hips , but I took that with a grain of salt :p
I hope these tips help! Feel free to come back with any questions you may have c:
Heres some advice i posted on my personal, in case anyone was curious on my personal method for drawing figures :P
bi monthly reminder that gene simmons’ kid tried to author a manga and blatantly traced shit from bleach
also of note: when tite kubo found out, he was more baffled that gene simmons had a mangaka son than that he traced his work
