Your tutorials inspire me extremely, thank you very, very much! I got so much better at anatomy since I'seen how you draw the ribcage for example! Anyway, I was wondering if you, mighty person, could help me with the arms. I don't really manage to attach them properly to the body and the proprtions are also strange... I'd be eternally grateful!

^u^ Thank you! It feels great to know that I have helped you even in the slightest! Remember, there are tons of tutorials and reference images out there on the nets that you can use to complement my crappy tutorials. xD (I like these anatomy images very much and I check them all the time for muscles)

Now, let’s get started on some arms…and shoulders…and chest, to be honest.

I remember reading a lot about wasted, red-faced Moran in HOTD and oooh boy, there is nothing I want more than drunk Jimmy and Basher staggering home after an excessive night of drinking and clubbing, or whatever it is you imagine they might do for fun on Friday nights…

I’ve been working on this for a few days and finally got it finished! I have been wanting to do something special for hitting 500 followers, and by the time I got around to it, I hit 600! Woah! So anyways, thanks guys for following me and supporting my art. You guys are gravy. The really good kind. Like Thanksgiving gravy. Mmmm ~u~

Congrats on 600, Razz! Well deserved for your incredible, stunning work! \(◕ヮ◕)/ *does a little dance*  Best wishes for swift growth to the next hundred! x

My issue with most horror movies to be honest. Am I the only one around here who would run toward the murderer? With a weapon, of course; but anything can be a weapon if you get creative. That’s my problem, I always want everything to be clever…

First day back in class and of course I decide to waste the time drawing. Yes, that is Sherlock, and let me explain why. Sitting at the back of the class, you can deduce a lot about people from what you see on their laptops before the lecture begins. Some people are prepared to take notes, some are on Facebook, tumblr, other forums, and some even play games. If Sherlock were in university right now, he’d be able to tell you who spent their summer job income on a new machine by looking at the default start menu icons; or who is taking this class to fufill a requirement because he’s replying to a forum in a different field; or who is the kind of girl to party from her google maps search; or how to start a conversation with the girl who has Harry Styles as her desktop background… Needless to say, I was a huge creep and analyzed my classmates instead of listening to the lecture. Oops. 
But I do think it is a very interesting way of sharing a part of yourself with others. I don’t know if other people creep around like I do, but I appreciate that some people show their interests so publicly (even if they don’t mean to). It would be a great way to make friends— if you see someone with a similar interest on their screen, you instantly have something to talk about!

I get these ideas in my head about what I want to draw and then I get so intimidated by them and insecure about my lack of technical skill that I do nothing except twiddle my thumbs and feel like rubbish.

And it’s honestly very difficult to be by yourself in the wee hours of the morning when you…

Sometimes I just gape at the things you write about yourself because I can’t believe that you feel this way. You have one hell of a talent—we can all see it (even Andrew Scott sees it, remember?). Your art is amazing, and you should know that by now. Fuck technical skill – which you do not lack, by the way; I’d say you are the most accurate-to-life of the three of us – art is about how you feel, and you do it for yourself. Who cares what other people think? Draw to please yourself, and if people like when you share it, that’s just a bonus. I’d also like to add: I’ve never seen a negative review of your artwork, so I can plainly state that your low opinion of your abilities is not shared by the rest of us. (I’m sorry if I sound angry, I promise you it’s just passion.) I know it doesn’t help for me to say “don’t be insecure” but you shouldn’t be! You have so much to be confident about. You’re just really fucking great, okay? Remember that.

Seb is more bloodied and scratched up, but Jim has much harsher bruises… And this is what qualifies as affection in this ship. ( ; n ; )
