*main character becomes a villain* oh my GOD… oh MY GOd do that again
Um belo jardim. A beautiful garden.
"Makeup should enhance your natural beauty, not obscure it. Use subtle highlights to accent the ravenous hunger in your eyes and bring out the extraordinary size of your submandibular venom glands."
"Your daily positive affirmation: today I am thankful for being alive and blessed with rows upon rows of teeth that shear right through muscle and bone."
"Conceal your dark circles. Conceal your bright chevrons and your dusky stripes. The humans must not suspect what you are."
"New research shows that ideal femininity encompasses a lamia’s beauty, a cyclops’ strength, a hydra’s deadliness, a Fury’s heartlessness, a harpy’s swiftness, and a sphinx’s love of feasting on less intelligent creatures. Be a chimera that cannot be contained!"
"Aim to be described as "inexplicably eerie," "unsettlingly off," and "I’m not sure what she looks like, I could never keep my eyes on her face long enough to see.""
If you are not aware of the “Beauty by H.P. Lovecraft” Facebook page, you are missing the time of your life.
Everyone involved in this comic is probably way too stupid to be a werewolf, but that’s fine. Did I mention this is an action story? You wouldn’t know from my weird practice comics.
I’ve discovered that most of the trick to coloring is to just layer on textures and color adjustment layers until your freaky coloring looks cohesive. This works a lot better than my own method of crying and flailing, so that’s good.
I figured since I had the weekend off, a full color page couldn’t be that hard! BUT NO. THIS IS NOT AN OPTION. I’M NOT THAT CRAZY. But yeah, I think if I just figure out value better in black and white, I’ll be fine. Because having to color like this every week will kill me.
I’m going to go really important adult stuff that I neglected over the weekend, like vacuuming.
for those who dont understand
heteronormativity and cisnormativity are the reason queer people have to come out
we are automatically assumed cis and straight unless we explicitly say otherwise, which shouldn’t happen
no one should be assumed anything until they explicitly say otherwise
it also makes being queer seen as alien and unnatural
there you go theres your crash course on hetero/cisnormativity
CRITICISM CAN WAIT
Having a vocal inner critic is a good thing… except during the first draft! Allow yourself to write as badly as you need. The time for criticism will be later, for now focus on writing!
