And too tired to redraw it.
Actually there is a straightforward fix for this! You need to lean on the ruler to make straight lines, but the ruler mustn’t actually touch the wet ink, because surface tension. If you attach a strip of thin card, slightly narrower than the ruler itself, to the underside of your ruler, then the ruler is lifted slightly off the page, and you can use it freely without ink being pulled underneath. :D
hee hee hee what are these
He’s not a sociopath, nor is he high-functioning. He’d really like to be a sociopath. But he’s so fucking not. The wonderful drama of Sherlock Holmes is that he’s aspiring to this extraordinary standard. He is at root an absolutely ordinary man with a very, very big brain. He’s repressed his emotions, his passions, his desires, in order to make his brain work better — in itself, a very emotional decision, and it does suggest that he must be very emotional if he thinks emotions get in the way. I just think Sherlock Holmes must be bursting!
-Steven Moffat (cool interview here)
Geez, thank you. :P
(I have my complaints about Moffat but it was always clear to me that one was not meant to take the “high-functioning sociopath” thing at face value and yet… many people do.)
-“high-functioning sociopath” is not even a thing come at me Moffat I will fight you
-Sherlock of all characters shouldn’t be inaccurate even when he’s being glib
-so much emotional spooge in this series. so much. (I mean obviously to an extent that’s what I’m there for, but. There is a point in most long emotional-drama fics where I bail, and S3 goes way past that point.) XD
Once a long time ago in a writing workshop the teacher told us that while Write What You Know was terrible advice — cliched and exception-riddled and ultimately not very useful — he nevertheless would encourage us to Write What We Knew, at least in the context of his trying to teach us…
well this is upsetting
do not support nice sketchbooks
I think they take too much time and effort and pull out the perfectionism and insecurity in every artist and you would improve much faster sketching through a big stack of copy paper on a clipboard
AUGH GODAMMIT T_T
I do wonder whether I should stop following so many artists on tumblr. On the one hand, it’s beautiful! and interesting! and inspiring! &c. &c. On the other, you go on tumblr when you’re tired and dull and just want to zone out, and you’re greeted with a wall of posts featuring people who do it than you; maybe better than you ever will…
