    just fucking draw. don’t compare yourself to other people, don’t stop because you drew a lot last tuesday and you haven’t visibly improved. it takes time, effort, and a lot of perseverance. besides, no matter how “bad” you think you are, there’s still gonna be someone who thinks the stuff you produce is the best goddamn thing they’ve ever seen in their entire life. the artist you were five years ago would have their mind fucking blown by the artist you are today. so just draw a fuckton, because every new thing you draw is one drawing better than you were before.

    I needed to read this.

    I honestly thought you’d back down at this point.

    I’m not ashamed of playing them, just not in public eye….

    I’ll link my box over at Plurk since it’s less of a public venue than all of Tumblr. Also because I got at least one IM from a third party just commenting on me and you, man. Me and you.

    The Story of the Samezuka Bug Catching Event

    Notes: this is probably my favorite track (and the sourin is so strong
    lol)
    EDIT! I found the complete version and omg the sourin at the end…
    ~~~

    *door opens*
    Sousuke: Oh? Welcome back, Rin.
    Rin: Hey Sousuke. Oh, what’cha up to? Summer vacation homework?
    Sousuke: Yeah…Hey Rin, can you help me with English?
    Rin: Nuh-uh~ It doesn’t make sense for me to do it for you.
    Sousuke: C’mon, besides… I helped you with classical literature last time!
    Rin: Ugh…okay fine. Just a little bit.
    Sousuke: *laughs* You’re really helping me out!
    Rin: Yeah yeah…
    Sousuke: In other news, wasn’t it hot today? My throat is burning like mad.
    Rin: That’s right, me too.
    Sousuke: Well then…how about the loser has to buy the winner juice?
    Rin: You’re ON!
    Both: JAN KEN…
    Rin: AW YEAH I WIN!
    Sousuke: Damn…
    Rin: So about that juice…any kind is fine.
    Sousuke: Okay…I’ll go to the vending machine to get it.

    ~~~

    Momo: I’m back! Pyunsuke~~~ Were you lonely when I wasn’t here, Pyunsuke? 
    Nitori: Momo-kun, I don’t think stag beetles get lonely…
    Momo: Noooo Pyunsuke…
    Nitori: Momo-kun, don’t just be worrying about stag beetles. Don’t you have other things to do? 
    Momo: Pyunsuke~~ you were crawling around today huh…that’s so cool!
    Nitori: He’s totally ignoring me…I guess I’ll do my homework. Hmm…well then, now where is my English homework? Should be around here somewhere… AH!! Momo-kun watch out!
    Momo: Ahhhhh!!!!!
    Nitori: Momo-kun are you okay!
    Momo: I’m fine! Pyunsuke should also be okay…WAIT WHERE IS PYUNSUKE?
    Nitori: Oh man he’s flying somewhere!
    Momo: Pyunsukeeee where are you going!!?!?

    ~~~

    Rin: It’s so damn noisy, who the hell is running? Oh shit, I totally forgot to tell Momo and Ai’s training menu for tomorrow… I wonder if they’re in their room… *knock knock* Ai, Momo? Are they not here? All right I’m coming in…what the…IT IS SO MESSY IN HERE. IN FACT, IT IS WAY TOO MESSY. I told them so many times to clean up! Where the hell did they go?

    ~~~

    Sousuke: Hmm…I guess I’ll get cola for myself, but I wonder what Rin wants…He did say he didn’t care, but that just makes it harder for me to decide!
    Ai: *gasping* Momo-kun wait up! You’re too fast!
    Momo: What are you talking about, Nitori-senpai? If we don’t hurry Pyunsuke will fly out of the dorm!
    Ai: I know!! Oh? Yamazaki-senpai! You did well today!
    Momo: Good job today! I recommend the top right drink!
    Sousuke: Ah? Yeah…
    Momo: Pyunsuke~~ where are you going?
    Ai: Momo-kun wait uppppp!!!
    Sousuke: What the heck are those two doing?
    *running*
    Rin: Hey Sousukeee! Did you see Ai and Momo come by here?
    Sousuke: Ah yeah, the two of them ran over there!
    Rin: Thank you!
    Sousuke: Wait Rin! What about your juice? Which one do you want?
    Rin: I don’t really care! Just get me the top right one!
    Sousuke: The top right one? Hm….? Okay then…

    ~~~

    Ai & Momo: *gasps*
    Ai: Pyunsuke~ where are you? Momo-kun look! That stag beetle on that tree might be Pyunsuke!
    Momo: That brilliant form…it DEFINITELY is Pyunsuke!
    Nitori & Momo: Ahhhh!!
    Rin: I FOUND YOU GUYS!
    Ai: Rin-senpai…
    Rin: Oi…..Ai!
    Ai: YES!
    Momo: Nitori-senpai!
    Ai: Momo-kun, leave this here to me. You need to go! I’m begging you!
    Momo: Nitori-senpai!!!!!! I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU SENPAI!
    Rin: Ai! What the hell is wrong with your room?
    Ai: I’m sorry, I got caught up with practice and was definitely going to clean up but I uh…
    Rin: WHY YOU!!!!!!
    Ai: AHHH!!!
    Rin: Just by looking at your room I can tell what’s really in your heart. Clean up that shit before practice tomorrow otherwise I AM THROWING EVERYTHING AWAY.
    Ai: OKAY! I’M SORRY! *runs away*
    Momo: Pyunsuke!! Ah there he is!
    Rin: HEY MOMO!
    Momo: Guhh, Rin-senpai!
    Rin: GO BACK TO YOUR ROOM. WHY THE HELL IS IT SO DIRTY?
    Momo: Ahhhh…before that, please hear me out…
    Rin: AHHHHH!!!!!
    Momo: *crying* Ahhh Pyunsuke is heading towards Rin-senpai! Please dodge it, Rin-senpai!
    Rin: What? *Pyunsuke flies into Rin* GAHH OUCH! What the????? The stag beetles—!!!
    Momo: Rin-senpai, that’s amazing! You’re definitely important to these stag beetles~ There are so many! Yahooooo!
    Rin: Don’t pull my chest! I’m getting bitten by these stag beetles!
    Momo: Rin-senpai, I’m going to keep all of these!
    Rin: I don’t care! This hurts! Oww!
    Momo: Rin-senpai, give me at least 10!
    Rin: Stop this right now!

    ~~~

    *opens door*
    Rin: That was such a pain.
    Sousuke: Welcome back!
    Rin: Yeah, I’m back…Man, all that running really got me thirsty.
    Sousuke: Then drink this. ‘Savor the feelings of stag beetles, a thick and fine sugar honey drink’ By Second Gold Sweets
    Rin: Uhhh……
    Sousuke: What’s wrong?
    Rin: You too?? ‘Savor the feelings of stag beetles, a thick and fine sugar honey drink’ By Second Gold Sweets” WHAT THE HELL DOES THAT EVEN MEAN? This is not a drink that humans should be drinking! Why don’t YOU try drinking this?
    Sousuke: Not gonna happen. You were the one who chose it after all…’Give me whatever is on the top right.’
    Rin: Why didn’t you think about it a bit more? Isn’t it weird?
    Sousuke: Rin *pats* try to remember when we also used to catch stag beetles.
    Rin: I’m going to punch you!
    Sousuke: Now that’s not fair.

    ~~~

    Nitori: Rin-senpai!
    Momo: Yamazaki-senpai!
    Nitori & Momo: Good morning!
    Nitori: Rin-senpai, what’s wrong? You don’t look so good…
    Rin: It’s just some heartburn, don’t worry about it…
    Sousuke: In either case, you did pretty well…
    Rin: YOU should try drinking this next time and ‘taste the feelings of stag beetles.’
    Sousuke: Well, I think I’ll pass…I’d prefer the rhinoceros beetle type instead.
    Rin: What the heck aren’t they like the same thing?
    Momo: Rin-senpai ,what are you saying?! It’s totally different! Rhinoceros beetles have horns but stag beetles have this very strong chin called pincers! Depending on the beetle, the pincers differ and AH! Rin-senpai are you interested in stag beetles? If so I have some really awesome juice that you should totally try!
    Sousuke: Oh really now, what kind of juice is that~? I’ll recommend it to Rin~
    Momo: For sure! I can bring some right NOW!
    Rin: Hey, cut it out you guys! Sousuke, you bastard…
    Sousuke: Hey, it’ll be great!
    Rin: Sou~su~ke!
    Momo: HERE YOU GO! ‘Savor the feelings of stag beetles, a thick and fine sugar honey drink’ By Second Gold Sweets’ YO HERE YOU GO RIN-SENPAI!
    Rin: STOPPPPPP!!!!!!!

    THIS IS SO CUTE DOTING BOYFRIEND SOUSUKE IS SO ADORABLE AND TOTALLY FLIRTING WITH RIN AND MOMO AND NITORI AND AHHH! also, the audio cuts off at the end, so if anyone has the full version of this track, please let me know!

    freeglassart said: You may get asked this a lot, so please excuse my ignorance - but how do you go about constructing character expressions and body language and such? Thanks!

    rufftoon:

    makanidotdot:

    Besides The Basics (construction of heads and skulls and muscles and skeletons and how they move), I’ll go over some things I’ve been trying to work on myself lately:

    1. Treat expressions as a single gesture of the face/head, as opposed to a head and then individual features dumped on a plate and arranged into an expression.

    First, just get down the big shapes of your expression, just like you would for a pose.  

    So say I wanna do a low angle angry pose.  I know the features are gonna be all mashed down at the bottom because of perspective.

     Scribble it down

    image

    start to put on features

    image

    fix stuff

    image

    put on more stuff

    image

    fix stuff again

    image

    erasing and flipping and stuff a whole bunch until you are happy with it or stop caring

    Whole head is a gesture!image

    image

    2. Just like a facial expression, jot down where the important parts of an entire pose goes first.  You can force the rest of the body to fit the pose.

    So here I knew I wanted the shoulders tilted a certain direction, and te hand to be in that particular position in front of her face. 

    image

    image

    image

    That’s the simplest explanation I got.  Don’t be afraid to push and pull faces and bodies around! Worry about being “on model” last!

    All great tips, plus bonus Zhao.

    So basically, the glass version of your icon. Speaking of, have you gotten confident with Rin yet?

    no ice cream either.

    and no.

    Fight, Dynast. Fight and win. I know you can do it.

    So I take it by that /WINS that I should mock up a Momo journal so we can tag boldly, in public, without fear?

    no

    Come on, I’ll tag you with that Hakuouki journal I’ve got sitting around.

    Hakuoukis and Frees only in the privacy of museboxes!

    Fine. I’ve got a musebox. Stop by anytime and I’ll tag you. Name the character and I’ll try faking them for you.
