((hey i just met you
and this is crazy
but here’s a kaijake
pacific rim is the fricKIN BOMB OK))
GODDAMN THIS IS SO COOL TOO HOW IS THIS HAPPENING
Here it is!
first thing I did was get rid of that awful anglicized nose. I didn’t want to make the curves on the nose too dramatic, just aquiline. I also broadened the base of the nose. I based the nose off of my friend Lynn’s, who is 100% Syrian and off of my grandmother’s so the nose is much more Levantine Arab than Gulf Arab or Iranian.
then I worked on the eyebrows. originally they were going to be thicker and straighter, but then I realized that most Arab/Middle Eastern women sculpt their eyebrows so I tried to give them a more angular look.
then I broadened the eyes, which looked too round and just unnatural. I was going to shrink them, but then I realized the proportions of the face would be so godawfully off.
next I went to work on the jawline, which looked bizarre honestly. I wanted her to have a strong jaw like Princess Ameerah of Saudi Arabia. the jaw is what I think makes her look the prettiest, to be honest. I also widened the mouth which I thought was too puckered and weak looking.
I then widened her hips and upper body, widened her arms and just gave her more substance in general. her body proportions were so horrifying in the very first image that I decided that I liked your body modifications but wanted to take it further and make her more realistic.
I really wanted a nice headscarf to cover most of her hair and shoulders but I just didn’t have the time. I got a little lazy on it and a little crazy when I was doing the hair, but that stick straight poof she had just didn’t look Arab or Middle Eastern to me. My sister has a huge, curly bush of hair on her head so I tried to emulate that a little bit. what I really had hoped to do was to make her look at least a little less subservient and docile and a little fiercer and more capable, like Arab women generally were in medieval times when they owned land, got divorces, worked in commerce etc.
In my opinion, Jasmine was too closely based on the modern Middle Eastern woman, who is marginalized due to societal collapse and a return to the far conservative elements of society. Before the early 1900’s this was never the case. History must be taught to reflect the full story, even if in a children’s movie.
I am absolutely in love with her hair. This is great!
Oh my hell yes.
“This is NOT turritella agate!
Turritella agate is the silicified fossils of Turritella genus sea snails from the Cretaceous period. However, if your ‘turritella’ agate is from the Green River Formation in Wyoming, it is actually fossils of Elimia tenera, a freshwater snail from the Eocene. It’s still silicified snail shells, but from a different era and different species that lived in a different environment. It’s very commonly mislabelled, especially by less-scientific sellers like in new age stores.”

Here is a really late blog themed zodiac sign! ;w;
It took me a second to remember what this was for. XD Thank you!
re: Everyone who’s managed to forget how ridiculous this comic is underneath all the drama and death.
this remains to this day one of my favorite panels in homestuck
I’ve done a few commissions where people were willing to pay decently and it was fun and rewarding work. I still felt bad that they could get a piece for $40ish from a handful of other artists instead of my 130+ but they assured me they loved my work/style~ One even returned for another recently and is so excited for another, even bigger project.
I have a stupid dream of one day being good enough to make a living off art online but with bizarre competition like full body+BG paintings for 30(!) dollars it is a little concerning.
Seems you need to be INCREDIBLY talented right now to offer what could be called “decent” prices (200-300) and have consistent clientele.
I’d love to do this casually/freelance and deal with individual art lovers instead of organizations/businesses but if i want to live comfortably…
And yes my experience would be in the furry fandom. I heard DA is even worse but i have no experience at all with them or the community.

OH MY GOD ♥♥♥
PERFECT WOW LOOK AT THOSE SHOES AHHHH
I think one is enough in my case. >_>;;
I have like three or four at this point. It’s just that I’ve only ever talked about two and the original. XD
Do AUs of AUs count, or do they form a unified object of sorts under some kind of AU umbrella?
Either way I have more than enough to keep me from getting anything accomplished with the canon.
You guys. Stylization and Realism are two side of the same coin. They are not mutually exclusive. You can’t properly do one without knowing the other. Don’t deny yourself and entire facet of art history because it’s “not your thing”. The more the DA / Tumblr community differentiate themselves from “traditional” or “historical” art the less anyone will take them seriously. Drawings are drawings. Art is art. Get over it.
Anime stuff is fine but Crack open a Raphael book once in a while. SHEESH.
I’ve seen this weird dichotomy in the “internet art” community a lot. No one has to make anything photo realistic or super stylized. It is what it is. But when you refuse to learn another technique you are only hurting yourself, and when it becomes accepted and encouraged to be like “well that’s my style” then it hurts your community and the medium as a whole.
