Welcome, I'm Hachi!
You'll mostly find multiple fandom posts scattered all over the shop and some misc stuff thrown in willy nilly.

You can find my fandom biases on my about me page if you're interested!

freeglassart asked: You may get asked this a lot, so please excuse my ignorance - but how do you go about constructing character expressions and body language and such? Thanks!

Besides The Basics (construction of heads and skulls and muscles and skeletons and how they move), I’ll go over some things I’ve been trying to work on myself lately:

1. Treat expressions as a single gesture of the face/head, as opposed to a head and then individual features dumped on a plate and arranged into an expression.

First, just get down the big shapes of your expression, just like you would for a pose.  

So say I wanna do a low angle angry pose.  I know the features are gonna be all mashed down at the bottom because of perspective.

 Scribble it down

start to put on features

fix stuff

put on more stuff

fix stuff again

erasing and flipping and stuff a whole bunch until you are happy with it or stop caring

Whole head is a gesture!image

2. Just like a facial expression, jot down where the important parts of an entire pose goes first.  You can force the rest of the body to fit the pose.

So here I knew I wanted the shoulders tilted a certain direction, and te hand to be in that particular position in front of her face.

That’s the simplest explanation I got.  Don’t be afraid to push and pull faces and bodies around! Worry about being “on model” last!

it’s nice to see how others do stuff like this, everyone is different but there’s something to learn from everybody!

“One reason that people have artist’s block is that they do not respect the law of dormancy in nature. Trees don’t produce fruit all year long, constantly. They have a point where they go dormant. And when you are in a dormant period creatively, if you can arrange your life to do the technical tasks that don’t take creativity, you are essentially preparing for the spring when it will all blossom again.”

OMG THIS THIS THIS. Everything from artist block, to writer’s block, to video game “I couldn’t beat this boss six months ago but suddenly that was a piece of cake wth??????!” block.

Oh, this is so much more useful than “writer’s/artist’s block doesn’t exist! Just be disciplined and power through it!”

(via dragovianknight)

SO much more useful to the way my brain is wired than “just power through it”.

omg I’ve always loved Astrid for this. She doesn’t just try and talk to him at a normal level, because she knows he avoids eye contact. He’s used of a life of people LITERALLY looking down at him, so he just escapes by glancing downward when he feels inadequate. But she won’t have it from him— she gets down ON HIS LEVEL and makes him look up. Makes him see what she sees: somebody worthwhile and worth looking straight in the eye.

slayboybunny:

if youre feeling like a big awkward fuck up who messes up everything just think about how if u were a character in a work of fiction sooo many people would see your perceived flaws as lovable and endearing character traits and how youd still be their favorite character to draw coffeeshop AUs of regardless

viria:

Akaashi, Kuroo said they’ll beat our team like no big deal so I couldn’t just leave it like that!!!

I can’t believe I spent so much time on a thing this stupid.

Anonymous asked: You know what I really need that I haven't seen? Vampire Marco who is like the worst vampire in existence because of his overall caring nature and vampire hunter Jean who just was given the job of hunting Marco down. Or anything with Vampire Marco really.

avoidingavoidance:

… o-o-ooooohhhh my god i really fucking want to write this.

mildly awkward nerd vampire marco who always buries the animals he sucks dry when his hunger starts getting dangerous and he’s forced to give in

vampire marco who knows jean’s come to take him out and can’t really argue with that but kinda wishes he wouldn’t because he hasn’t finished this one level in Left 4 Dead 2 because somehow it’s glitched to shit constant hordes and he can’t tank it alone

hunter jean who stares down at this pale weeby nerd kid whose clothes don’t fit and whose hair is a mess and who is clearly running on fumes blood-wise and whose turning marks are those of a person who struggled desperately against being turned into a mindless killer

hunter jean who makes a decision about as good as any other jean ever written and quits hunting and moves in, grousing, “my boss was a douchebag and i was tired of scrubbing out bloodstains anyway” but really he was getting worn down by constantly being the proverbial “two weeks from retirement”

cue the lengthy flirting period and the incredibly tasteless jokes about being thirsty and jean’s lengthy and noisy complaining about having to have a funeral for an entire fucking cow because marco didn’t want jean to see him kill a squirrel so he almost died trying to resist the hunger

vampire marco who was a super cool fun jock boy back in the fifties and who has long since outlived his big buff greaser boyfriend, and who really hasn’t made friends since that time period and still retains some of his antiquated fifties lingo despite the sheer amount of books and games and shows he’s used to kill time

ex-hunter jean kind of watching marco realize that maybe it’s time that he stop grasping at the straws of a life he’ll never be able to live again and also watching him realize that he’s completely okay with that.

When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I’ve done
Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed
