Why Kill la Kill is Bad for Women (And Everyone in General)

tinycrown:

I try to be as fair and unbiased as possible when taking a look at controversial media (particularly media that is considered controversial for reasons related to sexism, sexual assault and rape) because it is an issue that is extremely close to me as both a victim of rape and, frankly, a person in general. When Kill la Kill was first subbed and introduced to English-speaking audiences it was received with mixed reviews. Some hailed it as a piece of revolutionary, feminist media and others criticized it for being sexist and damaging to people everywhere.

Under normal circumstances, I would wait until the entire show had aired before passing judgment but after watching some 20+ episodes of Kill la Kill I have come to a conclusion, and unfortunately it is not a positive one.

This is such a fucking lifesaver. Been having this issue for over a year now, despite driver updates and reinstalls and etc etc etc… when this trick worked I wanted to do one of those football victory slams with my keyboard I was so excited.

Hey all! I’m doing a giveaway, because I have an extra DS Lite on my hands that I never use. Rather than sell it, I’d like to give it away to somebody who might want one. (Also I already have the perfect size box to ship in, woohoo!)

It’s in fine condition, no cracked hinges. Comes with the cover for the GBA slot, along with a stylus and the charger. Also, I’m including Pokemon Platinum, Pokemon Ranger, Pokemon Dash, Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2, Pokemon Sapphire, and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Red Rescue Team.

Also, if you are following me and you win, I’ll buy you a DS or GBA game of your choice to go with it, up to $20. Fun fun. (Psst you should pick animal crossing!)

This giveaway is open to everyone, you don’t need to be following me.

Likes and reblogs both count, only one of each per person please.

I will ship internationally.

Winner will be picked via random number generator.

I love concept art and I’ve always loved looking at silhouettes. They are just so crisp and nice and they appeal to me VERY DEEPLY somehow. I’ve always tried to do my own, as I find I imagine characters in shapes anyway, but I’ve often been frustrated by my lack of skill. But I gotta do it anyway if I want to get better.
So here are some villains from my mahou shoujo story. Arranging this really helped me realize I have no sense of proportions. :B

10 typical perspective errors

electricalice:

Drawing perspective is considered one of the hardest things in art, except the mistakes usually done are pretty much always the same and can be avoided with a little care.

1. Lines not reaching the vanishing point

Well this is pretty simple to avoid but it’s the most common mistake. It’s probably due to either carelessness or really not having understood the basic of perspective. I encourage you to go back and find some basic tutorial for this.

Anyway, be ALWAYS careful about where to ‘send’ your lines, they NEED to go towards the correct vanishing point or it will just look awkward. Double check if necessary.

And always, ALWAYS use a ruler.

If your style requires lines that are a bit less geometrical (as mine do, I have a style of inking that’s sketchy so ‘perfect’ lines drawn with a ruler usually don’t fit well in the picture) use a ruler anyway for the pencils and then ink later by freehand. At least you’ll have correct guidelines underneath.

For traditional drawing be sure you have a ruler and be sure to use it for each one of your lines.

Modern drawing software will help you a lot with this if you draw directly on computer: painting software such as Clip Studio Paint or Manga Studio 4EX or 5 have perspective tools that will automatically snap your lines towards the vanishing point.

it’s quite a long tutorial, you’ll find the rest under the Read More or you can download the pdf file here

and here it is.

my 24 hour comic

took 22 hours. and then a little longer for some edits but. I’ve still got another hour till my 24 is officially up, and I’m definitely gonna be snoozing.

For having no planning except a selkie design and a rough concept of the girl, I think I did alright. I definitely pushed my self to try new things and, I’m happy about that. there are some things I’d like to tweak but… NOPE! IM DONE!

I also learned how much I can get done when I don’t distract myself so much. have to figure out how to rein that in haha.

also, if you’re curious about the title! fun fact time thanks to wikipedia (so it may or may not be true)

Selkies (also known as silkies or selchies) are mythological creatures found in FaroeseIcelandic,[1] Irish,[2] and Scottish folklore. The word derives from earlier Scots selich, (from Old English seolh meaning seal)

okay. sleep time. 

goodnightttt!!
