Oh bugger it, tumblr help please - I’d like to watch Spooks, but as I’ve a terrible internet connection making use of services like Netflix is a no-go - so I am guilty of downloading when I want to watch a series, streaming videos simply won’t work.
I’m having trouble finding places to get active torrents of the earlier seasons though, so I wanted to ask you guys if you know of any good sites? I currently use kickasstorrents.com but it often doesn’t really have any active torrents on older series.
Guys, the life-size replica of the contract from The Hobbit is HUGE. AMD AWESOME. I adore all the small additions written in the margins haha.
A bunch of my lovely friends got together and gifted me this for my birthday! Needless to say one of the first things I did was fold it out and laugh over how it was taller than me that way. I’m a small person and I love it, OK.
Finished! In just over 6 hours - some sort of record for me!
For the Let’s Draw Sherlock project started by Reapersun- go check it out if you haven’t already, there is a ton of submissions and they’re all absolutely delightful!
(This is my first Sherlock fanart in 3 months by the way - something happened to my style in the meantime but what I cannot possibly tell you… Very happy with it though, haha! - Also thank you for the lovely comments on the WIP I uploaded, it was very encouraging!)
(… I FORGOT THE SMILEY. Darn it, I need sleep. This’ll just have to do! Deadline is less than 24hrs anyway…)
Hi guys - I am actually working on something Sherlock related for once!
I’ve been using a ton of time practising, and without me noticing it’s paid off - I used to be completely unable to use references so for the longest time I told myself I wouldn’t be able to do anything for the Let’s Draw Sherlock project. I finally tried though and I’m actually very happy with it so far - this is just the basic lines, from here I’m going to do lineart and hopefully personalize it a bit more. Won’t be doing anything too interesting sadly, I am terrible at thinking up things like that! But hey, those who follow me finally get something new from me.
So yeah, a WIP but nonetheless one I am very happy with. I hope to have it done within a few hours!
Scanned, fixed up and finished the dwarf designs from this post.
Took about two weeks, much fun was had.
Individual proportions look a bit weird as they were all originally done in separate files.
(Let’s see if this works since I’ve only just unlocked the blog to post this and will be putting the password back into place afterwards..)
Reblogging from my ‘practice’ user, where I’m currently busy with improvement memes - good times. One of the days’ challenge was to design a character, and long story short I asked friends if anyone would like to be drawn as a dwarf (inspired by The Hobbit) - a surprising amount replied yes - these are the 10 I got done.
They were a great way to get back into drawing without it being something I was too worried about, so there are some lazy mistakes obviously.
I’m planning to do some Being Human fanart as well as an entry to the Let’s Draw Sherlock project within the next week or so!
Here’s the higher resolution of the header of previous post - notice how I didn’t bother with Bofur’s body because it would be blocked by the text pff.
Also a heads up; it’ll probably be quiet from me art-wise for a while (even quieter than usual, is what I mean).
First of all I’m ridiculously busy with school work (both assigned work and self-studies) - and second of all I think I need a good long think on my art and what I want to do, followed up by a bunch of study-sessions. I feel like I’ve been regressing into old bad habits for a while now and while it’s been great to just relax and draw whatever I wanted to however I wanted to, it’s ultimately lead to, well, bad habits. So as soon as I get the time, I’d ideally like to do a bunch of studies - proportions, colours, etc. As well as get a grasp on how to draw recognizable characters. But I don’t have the basic knowledge to continue onto that just yet, ergo the study sessions. We’ll see when I get the time. I probably won’t refrain from making some study dumps here every once in a while because I do like to share my art - it’s just that there are so bloody many of you! The fact that even just one person has seen my things, and actually thought that they wanted to see more from me in the future? It’s baffling! So 800 of you - that’s downright intimidating at times. I’ll work on it though. I hope you are all doing good and will take well to whatever I come up with in the future. Thank you for all your support thus far!
Aand here’s the proper post!
These babies are 3”/7.5cm tall and about 2mm thick - they’re printed on black vinyl with a protective see-through layer on top of the print - meaning they’re sturdy, the colour doesn’t rub off and they don’t damage easily.
You can buy them separately for about $9, in a set combo for $16, or the full set of 5 for $35!
You can find them all listed separately (as well as the combos of 2 I’ve chosen to add) in my Etsy shop, Hangednothung!
I’m still sending a small drawing along every order, so let me know upon purchase what you’d like for me to draw! Examples under the cut;
I’ll make a proper post in the morning (blogging from the phone), with more pictures, prices, examples of the small drawings I’m still sending with each order etc. And also a link to my shop, in which they’re already listed for purchase. Apparently you cannot do that on the phone. (Hint: there’s a link on my profile sidebar if you’re impatient)
I just wanted to share with you guys! So delighted with the outcome.
sketches quick drawings to accompany keychain orders. I’m not sure when these developed into full-on drawings but I’m having a ton of fun and people don’t seem to mind. Working on such small pieces of paper is a challenge, but a good one! Still call them ‘sketches’ because they’re very quick drawings and I don’t want to get peoples expectations up when I inform them of the offer of one haha.
(… Also some proportions look weird because 1) quick drawings and 2) angle of paper - these are just snapshots I took with my phone.)
True friends are the ones that don’t get weirded out when you exclaim how much you love maths in the middle of a 5hr report.
Seth MacFarlane made a whole bunch of sexist, reductive jokes at the Oscars last night. It’s frustrating enough to know that 77 percent of Academy voters are male. Or to watch 30 men and 9 women collect awards last night. But MacFarlane’s boob song, the needless sexualization of a little girl, and the relentless commentary about how women look reinforced, over and over, that women somehow don’t belong. They matter only insofar as they are beautiful or naked, or preferably both. This wasn’t an awards ceremony so much as a black-tie celebration of the straight white male gaze.
MacFarlane’s opening musical number, “We Saw Your Boobs,” might as well have been a siren blaring, “This isn’t for you.” Come on, everyone likes boobs, right? No. The answer is no. They’re not something I hate, and heck, I have a pair to call my own, and yet my takeaway from The Accused was not “Finally, I’ve seen Jodie Foster’s breasts.” My lasting memory of Boys Don’t Cry is not “Hey, free breasts!” At least there was that super timely and relevant reference to Kate Winslet’s many nude scenes.
Jeez, the song was a joke! Can’t you take a joke? Yes, I can take a joke. I can take a bunch! A thousand, 10,000, maybe even more! But after 30 or so years, this stuff doesn’t feel like joking. It’s dehumanizing and humiliating, and as if every single one of those jokes is an ostensibly gentler way of saying, “I don’t think you belong here.” All those little instances add up, grain of sand by grain of sand until I’m stranded in a desert of every “tits or GTFO” joke I’ve ever tried to ignore.
Then came the joke about actresses getting the flu to lose weight. “It paid off,” MacFarlane said. “Looking good.” Well, thank God, because what matters to all women is that we look good for Seth MacFarlane. How many women did he introduce over the course of the night by mentioning how they looked: “Please welcome the lovely ___ ,” “the beautiful ______”? How many men?
Uh, those are compliments! Now he can’t even give women compliments? Compliment away, friends. Let’s compliment the shit out of each other. But let’s be really cognizant of what we compliment each other on, and what that says about what we expect from each other, and what we consider valuable and worth mentioning. It doesn’t matter what Salma Hayek says, because she’s so pretty!
You just don’t like Seth MacFarlane’s sense of humor. What did you expect? Actually, I do like Seth MacFarlane’s sense of humor. (Sometimes. No one likes everything all the time!) I’ve been a loyal Family Guy viewer for almost fifteen years. I’ve been to — and adored — Family Guy: Live. If MacFarlane had sung “Shipoopi” all night, I’d be writing a really different story right now. Instead, there were jokes about how Rex Reed would probably call Adele fat — because that’s what’s important about her — and how someday Quvenzhané Wallis will be old enough to date George Clooney — because that’s what’s important about her — and how sometimes, gasp, a woman might have body hair — because that’s what’s important about them. Women are nags, and Jews run Hollywood! Thank you, Seth MacFarlane, for this cutting-edge humor. Like Mark Wahlberg said, the party’s at Jack Nicholson’s house. You remember, that place where Roman Polanski drugged and raped a 13-year-old girl. Ha-ha, ha-ha, ha.
I dream of someday watching women win all the non-performance categories, of women making as many films as men do, of women and men being nominated for a comparable number of awards. There are a lot of reasons why that day is far, far in the future. But I’ll tell you what’s not helping: the biggest night in film being dedicated to alienating, excluding, and debasing women. Actual gender equality is a ways away, but I’d settle for one four-hour ceremony where women aren’t being actively degraded.
—-Why Seth MacFarlane’s misogyny matters
3 of the drawings I did in my moleskine while I was away on vacation! Or, w
ell, I cheated and did the bottom left one the night before.Many of the requests I received were Fíli and Kíli-central so that ended up effecting my drawings - first one was a request for a young Bofur playing with Kíli and Fíli as kids and I know it doesn’t make sense to the timeline to have them play in a setting like that but shh let’s pretend it’s an AU setting where Smaug didn’t happen. Bottom right was inspired by someone asking for the two sleeping with their hair all messy. Which was a super adorable idea, I just don’t work well with hair so I messed up I think /sob
I have more half-finished ones, I’ll post them when done.
Shout-out to Mcfluffball for listening to my grievances over dwarves and hobbits, and indulging in flattery when I’m unsure of my things!
(Apologies for strange proportions etc - most of the work on two of them was done while on an airplane and on very little sleep!)
Oops I went ahead and drew something
And now it’s 3 in the morning, we leave in 2 hours. Good life decisions.
(I’ll scan this properly and post it when I get back home in a week - hopefully along a couple more drawings. It’s so much fun to work with markers again!)
Also it sort of looks like their hands are intertwined?? Fíli was supposed to be leaning his hand on Kíli’s knee but I ended up drawing them too close to one another and yeahh. Not meant as Durincest but interpret as you like.
Some of the recent sketches I sent along orders of keychains!
Getting more and more elaborate although I’m having great fun!
(Also I paid for and send in the designs for the Hobbit keychains today goshh I’m so excited haha)
The keychains are still up for sale over at my Etsy shop, HangednotHung!
