someting for a friend

i just want to say, for people reblogging this, that this is called the “rule of thirds” and the tips i wrote here by no means are things that you HAVE to do! these are just tips i use for myself, i kind of made up the bubble rule and i dont even know if im using the rule right haha so there theres that! i just like to use it so i know my bubbles have a place to go



examples of me using rule of thirds to separate elements in “Rachael and Penny”

i got the information a long time ago from a thread on penciljack called Storytelling 101, specifically this image

there is tons of information on rule of thirds available, i know eyecager has a post that dips into it …. 

Making note of this. I really need to work on my word-bubble placement. 

Yeah one of the big reasons I don’t do a lot of comics is because I get caught up in the technical aspects of it and realize I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I’M DOING ABORT ABORT and this is one of those things so cool thanks yay.

Mucho importante

Mission accomplished.



Inspired by a recent experience I had with someone stealing my art and cropping out my URL.
Dedicated to every artist who has had their art work stolen.

The problem hasn’t changed in over a decade of internet artistry. :\


Hank is such a tops dude its awesome

this is the most reasonable and helpful thing ive seen said on this subject and it takes into account that the person who said these things is a 16 year old boy and i remember dealing with 16 year olds and a lot of them were just as awful if not worse than this they just didnt have this many people listening to them heres hoping the message sticks and nash grows up as a more thoughtful and respectful person than he seems to be now

A lot of people have been complaining about how Elsa’s  ”recovery” at the end wasn’t believable - that after thirteen years of fear and depression, there’s no WAY she would be better just like that.

Of course, those people are right. Thirteen years of pain doesn’t disappear after a few moments of happiness.

But here’s the thing - Elsa didn’t just “recover”. She’s happy in this moment, and for good reason -  a huge weight has been lifted off her shoulders. She’s relieved to not have to hide, to be with her sister, etc.

However, this is just one scene. Everyone who has depression knows that no matter how depressed you are, there are still some happy (or at least smile worthy) moments. In addition, if you really look at her face, you will notice that the emotions being expressed aren’t just happiness. Elsa’s feeling a whole range of emotions here - nervousness, excitement, disbelief, etc. Not pure happiness.

The fact is, it won’t be a 100% happy ending for Elsa. Even after the movie, she’s still going to have a shitload to deal with. She’ll still suffer from depression, anxiety, etc - the difference is that now she can be open about it and receive help from her sister. She doesn’t have to hide it anymore. Of course, she’ll want to, but now that Anna knows the truth there’s no way she’ll let her.

So yes, Elsa was happy in the end. Is this unbelievable? No. Will she have a perfect happily ever after and never feel intense emotional pain again? Obviously not. She’s going to go through a lot, as anyone recovering from a mental illness does. The important thing is that she’s on the way to getting there, and this scene marks the beginning of her journey to happiness.






Let me tell you a thing here. They don’t need to change one bit, and they DO fall into a stereotype, just not one that is aimed at most girls. As someone who fits into both the Tomboy (Rainbow Dash) and Country life (Applejack).

When i mention that I have a horse, to ANYONE, the first thing they usually come back with is: “You live on a farm?” No, I have a horse, one horse does not a farm make. Yet, it does make me part of the country girl stereotype. The Stubborn as a mule, I can do this on my own, farm owning, roping, cowgirl stereotype. DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR? NO? IT SHOULD, this is APPLEJACK TO A T.

The things that make AJ herself is what she is more than the stereotypics of her. She cares about her family. She doesn’t like to see her friends hurt. She’s reliable, and she does get overcome with responsibilities to the point that she can’t function. We’ve seen this happen. It’s not because of her stereotypical background that we like her as a character, it’s because she’s got some realness to her that we can relate to. As for making her more like…say, Rarity? You’ve seen that she can do it, for special occasions, and that’s true for those of us who are country too. We don’t like to dress up, hell, we’ll sometimes dress DOWN so that the people that get to know us know us for our personalities, our behaviors, and who we really are. Not how we look or pretend to be.

Now, you might be thinking about Rainbow Dash right about now, the tomboy, the sport loving, catch me if you can, daredevil that’s always pushing her limits. SHOW ME A SPORT where you can be girly, where you can have jewelry (They’re illegal in most sports due to accidental pulling which has caused earrings to slash the earlobe, where rings have stabbed and caused injuries that could have been avoided otherwise) Where you can stay completely clean (Even the most mild of sports cause you to sweat up a storm!) Show me where breaking a nail would be allowed to slow you down. NONE OF THESE can be done. They can be attempted—but they’re abandoned the second game into the season. They either stop playing, or they adapt to the rules and show that they can do what is expected in the sport.

As I mentioned before, I fit into both of these categories, and I’m GLAD to see that not just the more GIRLY aspects of being a female are being represented. We come in all shapes, and types. In likes and dislikes, not just animal lovers, not just fashion designers, not just bookworms. You’ve seen also that Rainbow Dash has learned to love to read too! They’re learning from one another and becoming more well rounded characters, and that’s one of the good things about My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

It’s also worth mentioning that of the characters, right now, Rarity is my favorite. This is because she is essentially the Anti-AppleJack. She’s the type of girl I encountered a lot in school, except she’s open to learning about AJ’s way of life. Before the slumber party episode, Rarity condemned AJ for her way of thinking and thought that she was better than her, but she was willing to admit her mistakes. She realized in the Manehatten episode that her friends had worked themselves to the bone for her, and that she had been unkind in return, and thought that they would abandon her because of it. Not betray her, though you can see that that the supposed friend betraying her element of harmony DID cut her deep. The fact that she thought they’d abandon her says that it has happened before too, that feeling of abandonment. She’s also shown that she and AJ do share some similar traits. She’ll do anything for her family, though she’s got the typical older sister ‘don’t touch my stuff’ syndrome. She treats EVERYONE like they matter, even if they don’t help her. (AJ with the cows and Rarity with the bellhop)

just to avoid accidentally using offensive language i’m going to start using 90s surfer dude slang because inadvertently offending someone is totally bogus dude

people might not want to be called dude

I find your poor grammar and spelling to be offensive to my eyes.

watch me catch this gnarly wave of i don’t care




Just a quick first draft.

Since Soulcrowns are “demons”, i’ve been thinking about creating “angels” for a long time.

I have to run to get to my new acting course in time but let me know what you think

This is actually an interesting design. Mind if I try drawing a few?

How about you hang on until i’ve finished the species design for sure? It’ll be an open species (unless reasons why it should be a closed species emerge) and I’m sure you’d like to be accurate in the way you draw them c:

Oh! I understand, thank you for clearing that up. Can’t wait. C:







I shall reblog whenever I see this….

the amount of perfection in that paragraph makes my heart happy.

I’m a Christian and I support this message.

i think i’m crying that’s so perfect
