when you get into a new thing and all you really care about is that thing and you’re destroying your blog spamming that thing so you have to start pretending to care about other things so there’s some variety

practice anatomy without having to work too hard

also 10x1

this is a huge part of art development!! so many people are afraid of being accused of “tracing” even in their unpublished practice that they never ever do it. DO IT, just don’t claim it as your own or post it if you’re uncomfortable?? Getting the hang of anatomy is so much easier when you trace at the start, and then move on to using reference images. Once you trace a hand enough times, you understand how it’s supposed to curve or bend or flex in the reference photos. I have like 4 folders full of anatomy studies that I’ve done by tracing, and it helps a ton with getting out of same body type/same face syndrome!!

Do you ever start bullshitting a paper, and then look over it halfway through and think, ’…Wait a minute, I could be onto something here.’

this is the definition of college.

Literally I was writing a paper on Asian salt water crocodiles, like a simple about them paper for a college class, and I started noticing some inconsistencies in the scientific papers I was sourcing and I accidentally discovered that the crocodile has been misdiagnosed as least concerned on the endangered species list when they should be classified as endangered and now my professor is having me write a formal report to the international Red List to have them reclassified and all I wanted to do was write this paper on an animal I thought was cool and now I’m considered an expert on this species…

this is how it works half of esteemed biologists trip and fall into their specialty while pursuing something else. one lecturer i just went to started as a biochemist researching antibiotics and discovered that crocodiles change colors based on environment and now he has 30+ crocs in his yard for research purposes and he’s just like… “wait… i’m a chemist…”

If you’re trying to catch a housecat that’s gotten outside, don’t forget: they’re an ambush predator and you’re a persistence predator. You have several times more endurance than they do - use that to your advantage! Don’t run after them; that’s playing to the cat’s strengths, and vigorous pursuit may cause them to hide. Instead, follow them at a brisk walking pace until they get tired and need to have a lie-down, at which point you can simply pick them up and take them home.

Ok but no shit this tactic is what allowed humans to survive pre-civilisation

every culture has a little dish that just translates to “we threw everything into that fucking pot we’re poor”

Funny enough, shrimp and grits used to be that dish, and then folks who live far from the ocean decided that shrimp was a delicacy and should be expensive and now shrimp and grits isn’t that dish any more.

Same with lobsters here. They used to be poor people’s food. People would till them into the soil for fertilizer. Not anymore.

Yup. Lobster used to be considered just a half a step above cockroaches. People facing execution would request as their last meal “anything but f***ing lobster.” But it cost money to get it inland, and rich people who didn’t live on the shore decided that it must be fancy because of the cost, and now even people living in historic lobster-fishing areas can’t always afford it.

the Big Bad of our campaign is an evil snake lady so our rogue was brainstorming ideas to kill her and came up with:

  • Cutting off her arms so she would revert to a harmless garden snake
  • Having our Druid morph into a mongoose and fight her, like nature intended
  • Dropping food in her path so that her tail grows too long and she runs into it and gets a game over

You can’t complain about lack of good fics and not support your fandom writers.
The good ones might stop if they don’t feel appreciated.
If you want a vivid and creative fandom do your part!
Support writers and content creators. Talk to them about their aus, fics and hcs! Share your thoughts and ideas. Reblog and share their work!
Keep it up and living!

Don’t just like this post and agree with it.

Do something about it.

You never know who might be on the brink of leaving an underappreciating fandom. Great artists and writers leave every day - your favourite who you love so much but never talk to? They could be gone tomorrow because of this.

Dont @ me but if ur a white content creator u should probably examine your brown characters (especially the darker skinned ones) and see if u aren’t following a certain trend of making them all aggressive, violent, surly or otherwise outwardly angry

Honestly this comes insidiously in subtle ways I think

Are your brown characters always scowling in the art u draw? How about emotionless asians? Do u have white antagonistic characters that get to be cute or beautiful, while ur brown characters ONLY get to be confrontational?

one of my ex-friends once asked me and my sister (both of us being filipino) how to say rude or mean things in filipino for her character and never asked anything else about being filipino-american

“USE POC!!!!!! MORE!!! MORE POC!!!!”


*adds more*


“How DARE some of them be villains?!”


People are varied. Skin color means nothing to character. Do not be upset when a series has darker villians, or would you rather POC characters be trapped in a “purity” box, unable to do anything slightly wrong. It’s like real life. Some white people are horrid like Stalin, some like mr Rodgers. You can’t classify people by race.

You might’ve missed the part where I said “all.” Easy miss.

Anyway, obviously PoC can be bad. We are people, and therefore susceptible to vices or cruelty ourselves.

But when your only prominent character or characters of color are villains or morally reprehensible, you are making a statement.

You end up saying, that in a world you hold complete control over, “villainy” is inextricably tied to “brownness.”

I never said that characters of color have to be good all the time. Just to be careful what you’re saying when they end up being “bad.”

@ my fellow adults who use tumblr a lot:

can you PLEASE put your age in your about/sidebar and make sure it’s accessible on mobile. imo if you’re an adult esp 20+ it’s a little weird that you wouldn’t have your age readily available on your blog. if you’re reading this now and you don’t have your age listed, please rectify that. i feel like teenagers get lured into talking to adults in fandom/lgbt spaces that they may not have intentionally sought out because they think they’re talking to other teenagers, and this can lead to a lot of other – much more insidious –problems

I know other people have already refuted this, but seeing the original message still going around I’d like to point out just a couple of reasons why this request - while well intentioned - misses a lot of key points:  

1. This is working under the assumption that tumblr is a space solely (or at least primarily) for teenagers/kids and that simply isn’t the case. Historically the creation of fanfiction, fanvids, fanart, etc. has been done by people in their twenties and older.  Think about how many years it takes to learn how to craft a good story. Think about what you need to pull something like a con together. That person with the Skill you admire? There’s a very good chance they’re an adult. It used to be that kids pretended to be 18+ because they knew online fan communities were adult spaces. I’m not sure when this switch happened, but it needs to stop.

2. It is not “a little weird” that people don’t put their age on their blog. I have mine because I’m comfortable sharing it and my fan identity/irl identity are already really conflated, but a lot of people - most people - want to keep personal information to themselves. There’s nothing wrong with that and insisting that we reveal that information is all kinds of wrong. Can you ask someone their age? Certainly! Maybe they’ll tell you, maybe they won’t, but regardless you are not entitled to that information. 

3. The children on here? They are not my responsibility. If kids/teens are worried about who they’re talking to then they should either a) be careful about who they interact with or b) not use this website. If they’re too young to understand this then they’re too young to be online without parental supervision. Now, how can a teen be careful about who they interact with? Check the person’s blog. See the kind of content they post. See if there are any hints about their age (mentions of school, job, birthdays, etc.) - or again, just ask! I’ve had plenty of people on here decide they only want certain types of interaction with me after discovering my age and that’s fine. But it’s not my job to monitor everyone else’s internet use.

4. Finally, I find the language here to be rather concerning. “A little weird,” teenagers are “lured,” leading to things that are “much more insidious”… all of this, whether intentionally or not, frames anyone 20+ as intrinsically predatory. It also takes agency away from anyone under 18. Teenagers aren’t “lured” into talking to me, they make that decision on their own. They are their own person capable of making their own decisions, gathering information before making that decision (like asking someone’s age) or, if they can’t do these two steps then again, they should not be online. We’ve come right back to point #1: this is not your space. It’s our space. I’m not some trespasser here who only gets to stay provided that I cater to those younger than me. If anything, based on how much of online content is geared towards adults, kids should be working under the assumption that they are speaking to an adult until proven otherwise, especially on websites like tumblr that cater to all ages. Don’t assume you’re talking to another teenager. Don’t project onto a person and then get mad when you find out you’re wrong. That’s not them tricking you, that’s you failing to take responsibility for yourself. 

You want to know someone’s age? Ask, and then work with the answer you’re given. But someone failing to give you private information up front isn’t weird or predatory or insidious. The quicker everyone realizes that the better off we’ll all be.

throughout history it has been a man’s job to provi..

no, throughout history men have actively prevented the independence of women, they have actively prevented our mobility, rights to an education, and livable income. they’ve abused our reproductive capability and passed us around like properties, they’ve used religion to rationalize their hatred of us, and to put us in a place of subordination. so y’all can shut the fuck up about men being “providers” like it was some benevolent gesture, in an attempt to rationalize sexism.
