Job Well Done

palidoozy-art:

As per request (thanks, singingrabbitskull!), I did a half-tutorial, half-sporadic notes on how I generally render basic expressions.

There’s already a lot of cool tutorials that exist on how to do expressions, so I tried to just look at a lot of really minor details that I’ve used but haven’t seen commonly passed down.

required disclaimer: this is just how I go about it, feel free to ignore bits, steal bits, do whatever you want with them. Hope this helps, and if you have any questions scream at my inbox!

Huxley vs. Orwell

the thing is, however, that both are true.

by Charlie Jane Anders

Worldbuilding is an essential part of any work of fiction. But especially for science fiction or fantasy, it’s the lifeblood of storytelling. But when worldbuilding fails, it can wreck your whole story, and leave your characters feeling pointless. Here are seven deadly sins of worldbuilding.

  1. Not thinking about basic infrastructure.
  2. Not explaining why events are happening now.
  3. Creating fictional versions of real-life human ethnic groups, that never go beyond one dimension.
  4. Creating monolithic social, political, cultural and religious groups.
  5. Inventing a history that is totally logical.
  6. Not really giving a strong sense of place, like what it smells like after it’s been raining.
  7. Introducing some superpower, like magic or insane tech, without fully accounting for how it would change society.

Character types that are underrepresented in their gender

the-right-writing:

This is just my personal experience. Both positive and negative character types will be found in this post.

FEMALE:

  • bad girls who take their inner demons out on those around them
  • loners with angst
  • brash, adventurous women who love weapons, money, and men and don’t have a soft side
  • females who are so devoted to something else (their job, their dreams, etc) that romance doesn’t matter to them (and the point of the story isn’t to turn them into lovebots)
  • women who want to impress everybody with their skills (not just their parents and/or crush)
  • women who are just kinda chill without being meek or submissive

MALE:

  • shy love interests
  • excited guys who happily overreact to everything
  • dudes who act passive-aggressively when they don’t like or don’t agree with something
  • fanboys who aren’t creepy or gross

I think now is as good of a time as any to announce that I’m going to Fan Expo with a whole bunch of my friends! At first I wasn’t going to cosplay as anything, but because of IMMENSE PEER PRESSURE I am now going as a homestuck thing because why not. What you see up there is a cheap shirt I spent about a day or so painting a nice one-colour design on. It took like twenty fucking coats of paint (and I might at one or two more before I leave mid-week) but it looks rad now. My friend’s sister is doing a matching hood kind of thing to go with it for me, which is hella. I think that’s about it for now. I’m pretty excited to go.
