Wee, thank you! Its always nice to be flattered of course, but it feels quite different when the praise comes from other artists.

Photo reference, otherwise, I mess up everything! Like, what are muscles and bones? Or size relation, what the fuck
I don’t usually reblog stuff like this, but it’s well worth thinking about. And I can affirm the first point from painful personal experience.
People are always desperate to give what they wish others would give them.
The worst suffering anyone can experience is suffering alone.
Hoard as many good memories and experiences as you can. Be wealthy in laughter and smiles. It’s currency for when shit happens.
Emotions aren’t problems. They can’t be fixed, they simply exist. It’s like trying to cut water with a knife.
Emotions are symptoms of your experiences, in the same way swearing hysterically is when you stub your toe.
Emotions are like water. It can be carried. It can be drunk to nourish you. It can clean you. It can also drown you. Water is a force of nature and there is an ocean inside you.
The people around you are reflections of who you are. The people around you are the people you think you deserve.
Money makes things a business contract. Always honor your contracts, but be careful not to sell your heart. If you do, though, it’s all right. Hearts grow back. It just can take a while, like trees.
If anyone gets offended because you’re having a hard time, don’t talk to them until they apologize. You may get your apology or you may never talk to them again. Either one is a victory.
Falling outs, divorces, or breaks between people are growing pains. People learn with each other. When people stop interacting with each other, there is nothing left to learn.
Sympathy for the dead doesn’t exist. They are dead. The sympathy is for the living that has to deal with the dead.
Compassion is a strength, no matter what everyone says. It’s fucking difficult to care, especially when people shame you for it. That’s exactly why you’re stronger for it, because they’re too scared of being hurt.
You’re never the same person tomorrow as you are today.
If you’re tired, sleep. If you’re hungry, eat. If you’re thirsty, drink. It’s amazing how often people need to be told this.
By the way, I was thinking for some time to join on the “screencap repaint” bandwagon, but I have no idea what show and screenshot I’d go for. Would anybody be so nice as to make a suggestion to me?
