Hahaha, I can empathize. I’m pretty bad at backgrounds. I dunno, maybe it’s not so much actually drawing them as it is trying to come up with decent, creative ones. They end up being really boring and simple. I hate having to do them for animations though. Too many shots to draw more and more backgrounds. Ugh…
I have a laugh that comes out with people I really trust, while drinking in loud places, and when I’m alone in my apartment. It is a loud cackle that can sound, oh, a little upset, a little disturbed, and it’s wonderful because it means I’m not giving a fuck at that moment.
That laugh just emerged, and it was a bitter laugh, and a true one. Shiiiiiit, backgrounds.
it amazes me how much i’m able to love someone simply because they accept that i want to be alone to work.
that, in the true ironic twists and turns of love, is the ultimate turn-on for me.
the ultimate turn-off? clinginess. neediness. damnation.

A long long time ago, way before I started taking my clothes off on the internet, I had this boyfriend who was pretty filthy. By pretty filthy, I mean he liked a healthy dose of kink in his sex. At some point he introduced me to the concept of tease and denial (which I’ve also seen referred to as edging). Tease and denial is still one of my favorite games.
It’s a fun way to play with control. Sometimes I find it entertaining to watch/make someone squirm. My sexual partners have generally seemed to enjoy watching me squirm, being responsible for and in control of it. My favorite part is the element of surprise. Like most sexually active people I know, I can feel when I’m about to have an orgasm, and usually having an orgasm comes right after feeling like I’m about to have one. Still immensely fun, but predictable. However, when someone slightly evil is in charge you never quite know what is going to happen. They could dole them out slowly, bringing you right back to the edge after every one and keeping you wriggling around in their lap with their dick buried in your asscrack. They could keep you on the brink for eight minutes (which feels like *forever* in the moment) and then make you come so many times you loose count. Also, they could theoretically wander away and not get you off at all. It would be really mean, but the possibility makes every single orgasm a pleasant surprise.
More widely applicable is the the core idea that when I want something and can’t have it right then, I want it more. Which brings me to Amanda Palmer’s quote.
I can’t miss someone unless they let me miss them. There’s this behavioral science thing tied in with lab rat studies (aren’t all behavioral science things tied into studies of rats somehow?) that says that any reward becomes mundane when it is constant. If people won money every time they pulled the arm of a slot machine, they probably wouldn’t develop addictions to gambling. If you eat a gallon of ice cream every day for the entire summer, ice cream isn’t super delicious again until October. Yes, I am speaking from experience on that one. If your live-in girlfriend makes you coffee every morning, it becomes habitual and you stop appreciating it. If you metaphorically crawl so far up a partner’s butt that they never get any distance from you, they can’t miss you… and getting things you’ve had the chance to want is so very delightful.
SO MANY TEARS
I COMPLETELY LOST MY SHIT AT THE PIZZA ROLLS
I DO THAT EVERY TIME I MICROWAVE SOMETHING
DTJHRSJTJTF FUCKING TEARS OF RELATIVITY
FOUND IT AGAIN!
/SCREAMING AND CRYING/
NUKE THE SHIT OUT OF IT
And lo, I didst laugh til I cried.
I have seen fucking children’s drawings more anatomically correct than some of the stuff I see get reblogged every day.
NOODLE ARMS ONLY WORK IN ANIMATION BECAUSE THERE IS THE ASPECT OF MOTION ATTACHED TO THEM.
STOP FUCKING DRAWING NOODLE ARMS.
if you’re going to give “advice” to people try not to be a douche-canoe about it ok
YOU CAN’T STOP ME
TELL EM GULLA
gosh let people draw what they want
people dont have dots for eyes either but you dont see me whining about it
friggin pleb just isn’t pro enough to understand the merits of noodle arms
OH NOW I’M PEEVED!
No but seriously, people can be really good at drawing anatomy but still they can draw noodle arms for comedy or style. Now be a nice kid stop whining about it.
That about sums it up, yeah.
reblogging again because the comments keep making me laugh
brb drawing noodle arms forever
I am generally pro-elbow because: elbows. But I’m also pro-this because: hilarious.
Drawn with a single “crazy colored pencil” from Target. Sometimes children’s art supplies are the best art supplies.
The word “realness” used, correctly, several times. Oh god oh god.
If you’re like me - and I suspect at least some of you are - then this title will just make you think of this. Of course, now I want to write full parody lyrics to a song called “Suddenly Riker.” (Picard would be better, but the scansion would be off and we CAN’T HAVE THAT.) Stay tuned, as I…
For all you kids out there wanting to give a drawing tablet a try, this looks like a really good option. I just lost my wacom pen, which they’ve decided they don’t make anymore, so i’m likely to buy one of these too.
After spending a week with the 6.25“x10” Monoprice, my Yiynova and Cintiq remain unplugged and I gave my Intuos away to a friend. The Monoprice tracks subtle pressure variances and small movements with less lag and more crisp fidelity than any of the others. It is, put crudely, fucking awesome, in both OSX Lion and Windows 7 x64.
