Anonymous said: Those really are some big big-toes, but I like 'em!
Thank you. I appreciate that you are able to not only overlook my hideous mutated toes but also see them as part of me to be liked and adored. I wonder if it is my big toe that has grown longer than reasonable or if it is my other toes that are stunted. These are the sort of questions that keep me awake at night. Some people have finger-like toes. I am sure they are secretly capable of picking up things with their toes but they don’t want us to know. We’d put them to work in factories where they can work twice as efficiently compared to us normal humans.
As far as my mutation goes it is not much of a superpower. I believe that folks with webbed toes can swim faster. Or, at least I wish that was the case. My big toes don’t do anything out of the ordinary. They’re just there. They make buying shoes difficult. At least they work as a conversation starter. “Hey, let me tell you about my big big toes!” Oh, it is why I am in constant demand for parties.
I sometimes pick up my socks with my feet after undressing them

As Kim would say: “Holy smokes! That is amazing!”
boaillustration shared one of her lines … so I felt as a child and play with colors.
So Alea took my lines and turned it into a picture book scene. I am still in awe how you managed to render the transparent umbrellas and the lighting and the background…the everything.
Screw the no reblog rule on the main blog, this is practically a sort-of collab and everyone should see it!
i don’t understand why people don’t instantly respond to “what would your dream superpower be” with the ability to manipulate probability.
think about it. what’s the chance someone will drop 1mil in front of me? 0%? let’s make that 100%. what’s the probability i’ll wake up tomorrow and be X gender? 100%. what’s the probability my bathtub is filled with mac and cheese? 100%.
This is genius
leonid0s said: Do you draw daily? Do you write daily? Many people say that daily exersise in those fields of work is crucial. Do you think it as well?
It shouldn’t feel like exercise. If you do it right it should come natural to you. I don’t necessarily draw every day, but I do it most days. I think I’ve gotten to a point now where I am comfortable enough holding a pen that I don’t need that daily bit of practice. But I certainly try to hone my visual sense as much as I can. Just as you can become better at listening to music you can become better at seeing colours, patterns and so on. Taking photographs helps there.
But I rarely left my pen alone growing up. I was outright obsessed with drawing. As I don’t livestream I do not expect you to know this but I do not rely on any kind of ‘proper’ techniques when I draw. I, like a lot of self-taught artists, tend to look down upon the ‘step by step’-nonsense you get a lot from art schools. The advantage to practising daily is that you will eventually develop your skill into a talent; it will come through intuition and not thought. It is just like a musician being able to tune their guitar without the help of some clever smartphone app.
Sadly this means that, unless you’ve been at it since childhood, you will most likely never excel at a skill. You cannot suddenly take up drawing when you’ve just turned twenty. I do not wish to exaggerate my own talent, but what I do I have been doing for nearly twenty-three years. That is a lot of practice.
I mean, I picked up a guitar when I was 17 and now I’m 21. Most people say I’m better than average, so there’s that. I think as long as you don’t feel like you are being forced to do something, you’ll learn it no matter what.
