never mind i can’t write anything cohesive, i’m not in the mood
I'm Malusdraco. People call me Malus, Mal or just Draco. I'm an artist and this blog is for everything not on dA and other artistic endeavors. I'm part of many fandoms, i really like anime and some online comics (including homestuck).
If you have any questions, go ahead and drop an ask!
the tunes if one is inclined to listen
ehh i kinda want to try actually writing some romance, maybe that’ll help somewhat
though i’m pretty much the least romantic thing i i know, it’s gotten to the point where i worry if i’m even romantic at all (not meant to be a cut at aromantics but personally i really want to be romantic, i don’t want to be left out of nonplatonic love)
i feel like shit and couldn’t focus on drawing characters so i tried drawing naked people and it worked
sorry this is pretty sexual, it’s kinda like some twisted form of therapy for me
man watching two best friends just made everything a little bit better
for some reason they’re the only group who do it for me, AH, Yogscast, game grumps, i’ve been a fan of em but really tbf just gets to me, maybe it’s cause they like a lot of the things i like, i can get their references (sometimes) and they play all types of games, not just fps/action/xbox-style games
and they’re honestly funny too, like they have their moments where they are on a role and i will literally CRY from laughing so hard
anyway i guess i’m just getting sappy because it’s been a long day and their antics are just what i needed
I do not TRY to act feminine.
I do not TRY to be a girl.
I do not TRY to pretend to be…. Anything.
I am feminine.
I am gender fluid.
I am true to myself.
Be who you are because it could inspire someone else to do the same.
my baby’s gone and i don’t know what i’m going to do
you were my favorite
I didn’t know piano playing could be so violent
this is brilliant jesus fuck
I have the biggest smile on my face. I just collapsed
I made a walkthrough of my process for drawing faceted stones! Judging by the timestamps from the screenshots I took, drawing this one stone took an hour and three minutes, although I know I went and checked tumblr a couple times while I was working, so let’s just call it an hour.
Now MISCELLANEOUS NOTES
- This walkthrough assumes you already know how to use layer masks, the clone stamp, and the lasso tool. There’s also one part where I didn’t label it, but I inverted the selection so I could keep my lines consistent. It’s in the third image.
- Unfortunately I can’t really help with colour choice and the actual colouring of the pinwheel shape that makes up the back facets, but you can kind of see that I tended to colour with lines that cut across the facets and and kept the outer parts of the facets darker. It would probably be best to find a reference to work from!
- This particular cut of stone is called the ‘brilliant’ cut.
- There’s actually a lot of internal reflection business that goes on in a stone, but I elected to ingore all of it since at a distance you can’t really tell anyway.
now GO FORTH AND DAZZLE YOUR FRIENDS WITH YOUR SPARKLE
i wanted to draw SOMEONE bloody and bruised and only yoku would actually fight so yeah
also i was listening to one of the songs from gurren lagann while drawing this and i think that had a big part as well
Tumblr, please read this and signal boost this post.
Missing 11-year-old, Caitlyn Virts was abducted by her father, Timothy Virts, 5 minutes from my house in Dundalk, Maryland (Dundalk is located in Baltimore County, Maryland). Everyone I know has each gotten the Amber Alert on their phones, and are spreading the word all over social media.
Caitlyn’s father abducted her and police think she’s in danger because she is NOT supposed to be with him. The Amber Alert is in association with a homicide of the little girl’s mother, Bobbie Jo Cortez.
A lot of people are calling police whenever they see a black, 1999 Dodge Durango. The actual license plate is 5AJ4458. Caitlyn is described as 5’0”, approximately 80 lbs. and is possibly wearing glasses. Timothy Virts is described as being 6’3” and 280 lbs.
You can read more about it here.
Please spread this like wildfire. C’mon, Tumblr. I’ve seen you do this before.
