crusnikden: Shingeki no hottopants & Shingeki no Kyojin.
The answer is the same for both! Bertl and Ymir.
Oh wait hotpants, not hotbacks..!?
For the fandom meme I rebageled ages ago but didn’t find the time to answer until now. I still have couple of these waiting, I’m sorry. OTL
(Can I ship them? I will ship them. Too.)
MITÄ VITTUA KOSKA MÄ TÄN OON LÄHETTÄNY APUA XD
I DON’T KNOW! BUT
crusnikden: UR PERFECT. *throws glitter on u* Stop it!
So I decided to do a screencap redraw of ‘Out of context!Seduction-Masa!’ This has been hanging in my wip folder for a while now but yesterday evening I found enough strength to continue! This was fun thing to do and I think I see some things a bit differently now.
I don’t have the energy or will to draw anything proper right now so have older doodles of floating heads. I don’t think I have any fever anymore, but I’m still feeling a bit weak - headaches, yay!. The one on top right I have already posted individually in another photoset.
bye bye pigeons
It seemed like a magpie was like “Fuck that shit gtfo” ‘cos the hawk was in a bit of a hurry until a magpie flew off… :D
Ayyy the hawk is back!
Of course my camera was missing and then it didn’t have sd card inside so I had to run around trying to find them. But the hawk was just chilling there, pissed ‘cos it’s raining. It’s a Eurasian Sparrowhawk if I’m not gravely mistaken. Ah, it’s so great to see it again. It’s been over a year since I last saw it. …Can’t be 100% sure it’s the same but.. it could easily be.

Curse you! (and your sudden but inevitable betrayal)
No ei ny, kuhan laskin leikkiä. Väsyttää, haluisin piirtää ja tehä kaikkee kivaa mut ei pysty. :c
Nnnhgngnhh I have fever.
I don’t like having fever. My throat was sore this morning but I just brushed it of and went to work because I had so much to do and didn’t want to burden my co-workers with them. But I think I need to stay home tomorrow. Yesterday I had no idea I’d feel so awful today, this just came out of the blue. I don’t even have the strenght to scroll down dash anymore.
"Is it dead yet or do I take my shirt off?"
Garleigh, what are you doing? Gar staph. (
don’t, I’d say it’s still breathing)
Like okay if you want to enter that contest then okay fine. But I’ve been drawing for over 20 years, which is longer than your doctor spent in medical school. And nobody expects doctors to do spec work for exposure. Nobody expects doctors to enter contests and win prizes for their doctoring skills instead of simply getting paid.
If it seems ridiculous for doctors, plumbers, electricians, teachers, or anyone else with a specialized skill to enter a contest to win a prize for work they would otherwise make a living at, then it’s also ridiculous for artists.
I understand how insulting that must feel, but in an overall sense, isn’t it also more a matter of demand, in terms of payment. There’s simply a higher demand for doctors, plumbers, etc. than there is for artists. People are going to forgo buying a new painting for their collection, in times of economic trouble, but they won’t stop paying their health insurance. In the list of necessities, as beautiful as art can be, it’s not a requirement for life or a daily need.
someone designed the logo for your health insurance company’s paperwork. someone designed the logo that’s on the label on your shirt. someone designed the website you’re browsing. someone designed the pattern on your wallpaper. someone designed that pamphlet you read at the dentist’s office. someone designed the design on the side of the plumber’s van.
art and design isn’t about that framed piece of art you hang on your wall. at least not all about that. most of design work is the grunt work - layout, typography, corporate graphic profiles, marketing, web design, industrial design etc etc.
consider your own “demand” for design compared to how many times a year you call a plumber.
Most people don’t use designs? I mean sure your doctor might have a logo (or your plumber). And that logo might help your doctor or plumber get better business.
But for a person looking for a doctor, they are not going to be like, “Well, no one around me has a pretty logo. Guess I will just here and enjoy my broken leg.”
Or when their toilet doesn’t work, they are not just going to wallow in filth because they can’t find a plumber with a pretty logo.
Honestly, I think more people these days choose a service provider based on reviews from FB, google, etc. The logo never comes into play.
you’re being purposfully dense here. the point is that design is everywhere. not just in art - or in logos - it’s literally everywhere. that chair you’re sitting on? design. those clothes you’re wearing? design. that computer you’re using? design. your phone? your bed your toilet your shoes your glasses your lamp your door even the colours on your walls and floors were designed.
art isn’t just in a museum or what you hang on your wall. art is in design and design is literally everywhere.
And I am saying, sure but being a doctor is more important (or plumber). If I am going to have to choose between stuff with cool designs or medical care, I am going to choose medical care. Or between cool designs or a functioning plumbing system, I am going to choose the plumbing.
I’d rather wear a paper sack and have tumblr look like a geocities site built by a third grader than go without medical care.
In the grand scheme of things the demand for design is always going to be lower than the demand for things that you need to survive.
This is ridiculous. You are LITERALLY on a website DESIGNED by people, complaining about how YOU DON’T NEED DESIGNS. It’s like using a telephone to phone someone and complaining to them about how useless you think phones are. Even geocities site format was built by a designer, and it’s not a 3rd grader who coded everything. You say everything while having the privilege of being able to afford cloths and being able to blog from a site designed by professionals.
Plus you’re putting EVERY ARTIST of EVERY KIND down by telling them they don’t deserve compensation for their work because they’re not “essential” like going to a doctor. Well, hope you don’t have to pay to go to concerts either cause those aren’t exactly essential. Or tell writers they shouldn’t ask for payment when they get their books printed cause it’s not essential and the exposure should be enough. Yeah, let’s just all live off of the glory of being exposed to the public while we die on the streets from hunger.
Also, plenty of people spend money on things that are not essential to them. In fact, NO ONE does only the minimal essential things. You’re arguing this as if you think most people only go to work, go home, cook and sleep, while doing nothing else for entertainment, except WAIT, cookware you use is designed by someone, the drawer you opened is designed by someone, the little patterns on the tiles you have on your bathroom is designed by someone and also, the house you live in is designed by someone, the brand and logo these companies use to catch people’s eyes is designed by someone, and the commercials they make are storyboarded and designed by someone. Design is EVERYWHERE. Hear that ringtone on your phone? a composer (a kind of artist) wrote that ringtone. See that chair you’re sitting on? a designer designed it. These artists and designers deserve to be compensated because you’re using them and we can’t exactly eat recognition and praise of our work for food or live off of them.
Did you know that Hollywood industry boomed during the great depression? People were extremely poor, but they needed something to take their minds off of things, so even though movies weren’t exactly “essential”, people spared 10 cents to see it.
So please don’t tell people they don’t deserve to be paid because what they do isn’t providing the “basic essentials” human beings need. Most of all, no one is asking you to commission them. They’re saying that artists deserve JUST AS MUCH COMPENSATION FOR WORK as the other guys. Whether YOU buy a design for yourself is your problem, but when you buy products, you’re partly paying for the design of that product, the design of those advertisements to sell the products; at least, you should be, because or else you get a starving artist and rich fucks behind big desks who are using their designs for free and making money off of them, and that’s just not right, and that is the point everyone is trying to make. your demeaning-of-artists does nothing but prove how ignorant you are about art and design and how unsympathetic you are to a group of people who are already often underpaid, undervalued, and often told that recognition is just as good as money that’ll put food on the table.
