A Powerful, Thought-Provoking Comic On Depression And Battling It by Erika Moen.
it’s so strange how seeing people express sad feelings can make you feel so happy. because you don’t feel alone in feeling sad anymore. because you get one more small example of how to keep going.
getting into my first actual cg model what am i doing
There are few things more glorious than a friend’s sketchbook.
can confirm. this happens pretty much every time during sketchbook swap.
Ugh enough sad for now. Here is a svelte baboon. I don’t think I’ve ever drawn a baboon so here ya go.
Baby elephant smiles
ugh i need this right now. maybe even more of this later.
Al Jazeera America film crew after a cop literally drove up to them, dropped tear gas, and drove away.
How is this normal and acceptable??????????????????????
Just a nit pick, but I’m pretty certain that’s the Al Jazeera reporter’s car next to their equipment. That is still their spot getting gassed however. That bunch of equipment is also seen being demolished by police shortly after (and very destructively too…just tipping the c stands over…). They were apparently hit by tear gas because the range of firing has been described as “sporadic”.
Regardless if you think the protesters are good or bad, obeying or disobeying, for the original problem or not, it’s been pretty clear that the forceful response has been extremely disproportionate especially with silencing the media, and is extremely troubling. And there are still people going around saying “lol well we don’t know the truth the media lies if only we could get someone to report the truth!”
So I’m eating my breakfast and just hiddly diddly checking some tumblr stats and hoOOOLY JEEBUS my Peridot drawing from earlier this year somehow has nearly 14K notes! Now I’m not one to get too terribly excited over internet numbers, but it feels pretty good to have what I thought was just a quick simple drawing of one of my own characters to be appreciated that much. So I doodled up another sketch of Peridot as a thank you to all my followers and others who’ve enjoyed my art.
Peridot is one of my muse characters that sadly doesn’t have that solid of a backstory…yet…than say Henry the aardvark, who I also draw when stuck for ideas and just need to mash something out. But Peridot has been sort of “with” me for quite some time now and pops up from time to time still. Maybe I’ll draft up some character bio posts here to sort of introduce my characters and see who everyone thinks is most interesting…you never know, maybe I even have a project in the works that I’d like to preview during that :)
Still can’t believe the loss of Robin Williams, one of the greatest talents to walk the earth, but it reminded me of my own personal struggles and how falling and never getting back up is very real regardless who you are…but also why I promised myself time and again to keep going on doing what I do. For those who couldn’t. And I made that promise to myself again today.
Went and drew two characters in a story of mine that I haven’t visited in a long while. Felt like they deserved a bit of a sketch each and was appropriate for today.
i say this almost once a fortnight but vin diesel is my hero
