This is something that was bugging me a little bit so, as always, I’ve decided to make an infograph. 

Maybe other artists disagree, but when I ask for a request, it’s a fun game. You give me a suggestion and I build on it. It’s a team project. You don’t know what you’re going to get.

If your request takes longer than 3 sentences to describe, it’s not a request. It’s a commission. It’s something so specific, the artist will essentially be working for your specific scene for free.

And of course - DO NOT REQUEST THAT AN ARTIST DRAW YOU SOMETHING if you don’t see that they are specifically accepting requests.

People have been requesting free art from us our whole lives. We’ve had plenty of that. If we want to draw you free stuff, we’ll let ya know. Don’t just assume we have free time - just like you wouldn’t come up to a doctor at a grocery store and ask them to examine your twisted ankle.

Unless you’re a person who does that… in which case… don’t do that either.

I’d like to remind people that this goes for writing requests, too.

And if an artist or writer has a list of “what I do/don’t do” then please respect that.

i’d also like to add that artists and writers have a right to deny requests they feel uncomfortable filling, for any reason. please don’t get mad at them, especially if no money is involved.

I remember seeing some posts when art programs are on sale, so I just wanted to let you know clipstudio is on sale from now to monday the 28th! It's $19 for pro (60% off) and $99 (55% off) for ex version.

anatomicalart:

You are very correct! Thank you for letting us know, we will happily share this with our followers.

ClipStudio is a drawing program for both Windows and Mac. It is greatly discounted right now. 
Here is a link to their official website where you can find the deal:

Here are a few examples of their program’s finctions, though many more can be found on the front page of their website.
Also, a video of their program in motion [Link].

It seems to be a Vector based program, much like Illustrator or Adobe Flash. For followers who are not aware, Photoshop works in Pixels rather then Vectors.

/!\ EDIT: Followers should be made aware of the following.
I have just been made aware that ClipStudio is apparently… the exact same program as Manga Studio 5/Ex. The only difference is that CSP is the digital download and MS5 is the physical copy. It has recently changed to this and is VERY misleading and has caused a number of people to purchase a program they already own. It’s more noticeable on the Smith Micro website where both “versions” are offered. Those who are still in doubt should definitely try the demo prior to purchase.”

Thank you for the information

Manga Studio 5 is next on my purchase list~

Harry Potter from the Point of View from Someone Who Has Never Seen/Read Harry Potter - Aka, my friend Jacob: 

moth-eatn:

You guys have gotten me thinking a lot about life lately, and how quickly it can change. After I posted the story of Stu’s proposal to me, I received a lot of comments and messages about how “perfect” my life seems, many of you describing how you dream that you might one day find yourself in a similar situation to mine. I appreciate these comments immensely. They have helped remind me of just how blessed I am and have made me even more profoundly grateful for my relationship with Stu and my career at Disney. But I also worry that the very limited information I present online about my life may be misleading, and I just want you all to know that things have not always been so perfect and enchanting.

I made this comic just one year ago. Though not directly autobiographical (obviously, since I am not a guy…), it very accurately reflects where I was emotionally. Struggling to recover from the most devastating breakup of my life, I wondered then if I would ever find a truly good relationship. I started to doubt that the kind of guy I dreamed of marrying even existed. And I feared that I had been hurt too deeply to ever really open myself up to someone fully again.

Now, just a year later, I’m about to marry the most amazing man I have ever known, a man who has every characteristic I ever hoped to find, and who is perfect for me in ways I never even knew to look for. I’ve never loved anyone so deeply or felt so at home with another person. It really is a dream come true.

Now please don’t misunderstand my intent. I’m not sharing this to gloat. I’m sharing this story because I think it is important to remember that no one’s life is perfect, that everyone faces struggles you may not know about, and that life can change! Things can turn around more quickly and more completely than you ever thought possible! So if you’re feeling anything like I did a year ago, please just know that there is hope. No matter how dark and heavy and inescapable your current circumstances may seem, there is always hope for a brighter future. Your dreams CAN come true. You CAN find what you’ve always wanted. And it may come to you sooner than you think. You just have to have faith and press forward. Hold on to that hope. Never give up. And know that fairy-tail endings don’t always result from fairy-tale beginnings.

There’s probably a reason why my university won’t allow me to take life drawing yet but just I can’t quite figure out why ATM.

ITS A VIDEO GAME. <3 <3 <3

Since you read the Bible and you're bi : What does the bible ACTUALLY say about homosexuality??? Good, Bad ?
Anonymous

stupidoomdoodles:

It doesn’t say much, rly. It’s mostly up to interpretation, just like the rest of the book. You have to understand that believers’ reactions are personal and have absolutely no link to any kind of religious belief ; I’m pretty sure most of them barely read and studied the scriptures in their entirety and just focused on what their community told them (which is also why many christians focus so much on Jesus’ suffering instead of his teachings, when it’s not the point at all). Even if Jesus straight up had declared gays were a-ok, christians would still have found a way to dismiss gay people rights. That’s how people are.

Now for actual mentions of homosexuality in the Bible, and although they are very few and vague, you have to separate old testament and new testament. There are far more mentions in the old testament : in the leviticus (part of the holiness codes), there’s the famous line “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman” (18:22). Although this seems super clear, everyone should realize that the old testament has an incredible number of translation mistakes and most of the writings’ meanings are up to discussion : in this quote, it could be implied that a man should not TREAT another man like he would a woman. In other words : it’s not simply having sexual intercourse, but dismissing another male as if he was an inferior : ie, like a woman. Also, the holiness codes were mostly written in very confusing times for the jewish community and were more of a political move than anything else, so their religious importance is HIGHLY debatable.

Another often-used quote is the one from the story of Sodom and Gomorrah - which is an older scripture which had surprisingly few modifications, and which is usually considered more “essential” in its moral teaching. The cities of Sodom and Gomorrah are condemned by god for their unholy behavior : they are selfish, don’t care for the poor, murder, etc, etc. Interestingly enough, the sin of homosexuality is purely a modern interpretation. In the original story, the inhabitants are unholy for trying to rape the two angels being hosted by the only holy man in the city. It’s not sin because they are men toward men (since angels have no sex in the first place), but because they do not respect the social law of hospitality. Jewish people started condemning the cities for homosexual behavior (“coming after strange flesh”, which could be interpreted by literally ANYTHING but i guess they decided to go for dicks because dicks are super weird idk) much, MUCH later on, and it’s a modern modification probably put in there to add to their alleged sins. Due to this, Sodom was used as a derogation basis for “sodomy”, and now everyone equals the story to anal rape, which it wasn’t in the first place at all. Also, you have to think twice about following the moral of a story which idolizes a man who gladly offers his two innocent daughters to a crowd of raging rapists.

Now, in the new testament, we have much fewer mentions of homosexuality : some scholars think that it might come from the greeks and romans’ rather relaxed take on the subject, a behavior which MIGHT have made it more “ok” in the eyes of many people at the time, but it’s purely free interpretation, since there might still be condemnations in the book (once again, up to interpretation). I’m going to only concentrate on Jesus’ teachings, because most of the rest is just a rewrite of the old testament. In both Matthew : 8 and Luke ; 7, we read the story of Jesus healing a centurion’s slave. While this goes in the usual pattern of Jesus’ series of miracles, this story is interesting because of the special relationship between the slave and his master : the centurion shows a deep affection for his “doulos” or “pais” (both greek words for “slave” and “boy”, which MIGHT be read as a sexual slave, or at least a slave with very strong sentimental bonds toward his master) and a particular desperation for Jesus to heal him. This has been interpreted as a barely hidden homosexual relationship - a relationship Jesus celebrates, as he says he “has not seen such faith even in Israel” and promptly heals the slave. Scholars don’t really find a common ground on this interpretation, because the homosexual subtext in the bible is very heavy no matter how you look at it, and it’s hard to separate fraternity and actual acts of homosexuality : but the passage is interesting because of Jesus’ acceptance toward the two men (especially romans), no matter what their relationship might possibly be.

Another mention which is even more interesting is Jesus discussing the case of eunuchs in Matthew 19 : 12 : it has to be understood that, at the time, “eunuch” and “homosexual” were often used as similar definitions, so unless they were specifically mentioned as “court eunuch”, it could have been one or both of them. I’ll just leave you the entire quote because it is a fascinating one, with a very modern view, that can interest both homosexuals and transsexual christians in its meaning :
 
For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother’s womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.”

I think Jesus’ words speak for themselves : no matter what your sexual/gender identity or your sexual orientation is, no matter how and when it happened, he is shown accepting and even - gasp !- welcoming you into heaven. The story of the ethiopian court eunuch (and therefore an actual eunuch - possibly a homosexual, but it’s not confirmed) being fully accepted into the faith later on is another proof that those kind of acts were not judged nor condemned by Jesus : he might even have embraced them as acts of love.

Whatever these mentions are, everyone should know that they are very few, very unclear (apart from the last one, which is surprisingly straightforward and from the mouth of Jesus even), and more than anything else : they are NEVER the things the book was trying to focus the reader’s attention on the most. More than often, they appear late in a list of commandments or in a story, and seem secondary, even sometimes added as a second thought by later writers (remember that the testaments are constantly evolving writings which have been modified countless times by hundred of people to fit their own time). If anything, they should be taken with a grain of salt by everyone, just like the rule that we should not be eating pork, or never wear clothes made out of two different materials. These are outdated rules for other times and do not apply to a modern society anymore.

The clouds outside my apartment are doing that weird rolly ocean-wave thingy.
