To anyone who doesn’t think that America’s justice system isn’t corrupt and racist, look no further than these two headlines from this week.
This is scary
I’d read about the first story yesterday- "affluenza".
But that second one? I had to google it. “IT’S GOTTA BE THE ONION. LET IT BE THE ONION.” It’s not.
This is scary.
It’s my birthday, and since I am now legally an adult, I can…. ORDER ANYTHING THAT I WANT TO OFF OF TV!!!
Not sure how Spotify can sound so nonchalant as it says things like this.
its 20 fucking 13 can we stop pretending that online activism and general awareness campaigns “dont do anything” before i got on tumblr i was a racist sexist anti-feminist piece of garbage whos greatest understanding of any social issue was discrimination against white gay men and that trans people were “men trapped in womens bodies”
obviously something fucking right is going on so why dont you stop being pessimistic little shits.
i just realised it’s not 2012 anymore
I have trouble drawing masculine hands since I only have my own hands to reference off but I want to get better at drawing these boys with toned muscular arms.

Why does this exist
I’ve looked through the notes and nobody seems to know why this exists
ok imma learn to sketch finally because unlike when i was a teenager i have the resources to LEARN but
I’ve realized my own physical proportions are a bit off.
I always used myself as a model and could never figure out why my drawn figures had awkward arm-to-leg proportions.
More recently I also couldn’t figure out why the artist’s mannequins I browsed for online had such long arms. A sudden flash of insight today made me google “arm to leg proportion sketching” followed by “person standing”.
Now I realize I have short arms.
Though it’s not a hard-and-fast rule, the wrists should be even with the crotch. My wrists are even with my hip joints. My knuckles are almost even with my crotch.
(It’s funny that when talking about art you can casually mention crotches.)
When I saw pics of women draping their arms all over themselves, I thought I just couldn’t do that because I wasn’t thin enough. Same with images like this- I would say “Holy cow their arms look so long!! I wish I was skinny.”
Sooooo my arms are short. Considering that long sleeves have always been a little too long to fit me, you’d think I would have figured out the truth sooner. Still, I don’t believe it stands out generally- my arms still work, after all, and no one has ever blurted out, “Geez your arms are short.” But it did keep me from drawing the human figure properly, whether I wanted to depict someone standing or folding their arms or putting their hands on their hips or even behind their backs.
It’s a kind of a breakthrough, therefore. I guess this is why I’ve heard that an artist should never use themselves as a model unless they are making a selfie.
