A suggestion for your yuri list, for the "Yuri on the Side" and "Yuri Partial" categories: Sora no Woto, which is on Crunchyroll. You'll have to be patient to actually see it happen, though.

Sorry to take so long to reply. Been rather out of it this week… Thanks for the suggestion, I’ll add it to my queue and hopefully will find time to get around to watching it. Sometime… So much to watch, so little time.

You can get lots of little goodies and everyone would benefit from this since my comics will remain free and available online.

Sometimes I spend all morning drawing a new comic page and feel soo drained that I don’t want to continue. I just want to curl up and sleep or something…Then I tell myself,

"Hey, all that is left is the inking and toning. Easy stuff. So get to it!"

Then I just continue on and hope I can get the rest done before the day ends… Just keep moving forward.

Yeah I thought they would too, but I think the reason they stopped is because they probably weren't very sure how to go about the whole college life scenario. And also the fact that they weren't sure whether or not if they should switch back over to the high school girls that took over the music club. I guess it's just that there were a lot of factors and details that they weren't sure how to deal with. But I totally agree with how they could've gone for a more yuri like angle too.

I thought it ws going alright for the first volume of High school and College. I really wanted to learn more about Mugi’s maid, Saito, who has been living with her forever. Plus the cute scene of Yui’s visit home and snuggling up to Nao when they meet up. So many yuri possibilities it is disappointing to see it is over and at the same time there is still art appearing that almost makes a couple of them seem canon… That could just be in my head…

ragingpansexual asked:

Did you watch the K-On movie? I thought it was kinda cute but it could have been a bit better.

Yes I did, I thought it was cute, but would have preferred Azusa not freaking out over the possibility that Yui might actually love her, but that’s just me. I really wish the manga didn’t just stop all of a sudden. I wanted to see more of their life after high school. It really looked like they might actually go for a yuri angle, more so after seeing this the addition of the news girls to both groups

Ok so I’ve been quiet about this for some time now, and I thought I should break that silence and make this public. (Hey other people are posting art PSA’s, this ain’t new)

We are Artists, We are many

Being a artist on Tumblr alone isnt easy. There are millions of other people  doing the exact same thing you’re doing. Amongst all of them you can be overlooked so easily. Now I am familiar with all those PSAs about not worrying about being popular and loving your own art. Thats all well and good, no ones debating that. But we artist want to share our art with the world. We want to show everyone what we can do.

The Wall

When we receive praise and love for our work, thats the best feeling in the world for us. We all have friends, fellow artists or not, that support us. But here on Tumblr, your art might not get pushed out into the crowd. For myself as an example, I get a 1 reblog for every 10 likes on something. And this is only including when I originally post it. When art post is liked, no one else sees it. Likes stay hidden and don’t appear on others dashes. (And yes, some blog themes do show likes, this I am aware)

Likes are good, but Reblogs do a lot more

When someone reblogs your art, a whole new set of people get to see it. Most of them are people who have never seen your stuff before. For example, whenever Carbines Official WIldstar Tumblr reblogs my Wildstar art, I get bombarded with likes, reblogs even follows! But before that, when I post it in the first place, not much happens. Dont get me wrong, I’m grateful I get anything, but feedback and notoriety is what keeps an artist like me going, and many others as well. Now I may understand that sometimes something someone draws isn’t your cup of tea, that’s alright! But even if you show a little interest, a reblog does a world of difference.

Support your friends, Support those who care

I know this is all sounding a little preachy, but it’s something I needed to get off my chest. There are no complaints, there are no orders, just a call out from all us artists. From the big and professional, to the small and unseen. We all want to share our art with the world, and it can all begin with a reblog.

( I dont think I need to say that everyone should reblog this, it goes without saying no?)

reblogging for  awareness

Why are there ONLY butch/femme lesbian couples???

whowasntthere:

There aren’t"only" those couples.

In fact, and this might surprise you, lesbians (and women in general) are individual people with individual preferences in their partner(s). You can find out more about that here, in our comic Lesbians 101.

Of course, butch/femme couples do indeed exist, but the prevalence of people saying they only see them in-person I chalk up to:

1. Heteronormativity. It’s easy to pick out people who look like “couples” when the default is two cis opposite-sex people. In point of fact, it’s ridiculous how many of my straight, femme women friends are mistaken for lesbians simply because they choose to be around butch or MOC women friends (who sometimes happen to be straight, too!). They aren’t a couple, but people automatically assume it must be so based on outdated and ridiculous couple stereotypes. There must be a polar dynamic in order for a relationship to form, and if two opposites are together, well, golly, they’re certainly fucking!

And related to that is:

2. Femme Invisibility. That’s a term used mostly in the lesbian community that basically means femme lesbians are overlooked as “real lesbians” or go unnoticed as queer altogether, both by heterosexual people and queer people. I’ve experienced it myself, it’s very real and very silly.

And on that token, I’ve also experienced what I like to call:

3. Double-Femme-Invisbility. Basically, people don’t fucking notice two femme lesbians. Those two women in skirts and heels sitting at Starbucks? “Friends out for coffee, definitely not a couple!” Those long-haired girls with pink nails browsing the make-up aisle together? “Friends picking out makeup for each other, definitely not lesbians!” Those two older women walking through a wooded ravine with their fashionable scarves? “It’s nice that grandma has a friend! Absolutely never lesbians.” Two ladies sitting in a pediatricians’ office, kids running rampant? “Too bad those women’s husbands couldn’t make it to the doctor visit! Surely they aren’t lesbians!”

First-hand, when I’ve dated more feminine women: Men still hit on us. If we said “We’re actually a couple. Dating. Lesbians!”? Men would argue with us about the validity of that since we both looked “so girly.” People at stores and restaurants would regularly ask if we were “sisters” and if we said no, they would remark on how nice it was to see such close friends. In a lesser way, this one applies to butch/butch couples as well.  While people might more readily assume they’re queer in some way, they rarely assume two MOC women are a couple. Stereotypes definitely factor in to confirmation bias and it sucks.

Am I saying there are no butch/femme couples? No, of course not. Just that they’re not the ONLY lesbian couples out there. I know plenty of butch/femme lesbian couples, some people’s entire social circles are made up of such couples. But, then again, some people’s entire social circles are made up of only white, heterosexual cis couples, so don’t always believe that correlation implies causation.

There are many wonderful ‘samesies’ lesbian couples out there, just as there are unique people with unique preferences.

So, expand your mind a bit, look beyond your stereotyping and come to accept that there’s more to life than your weird and wacky confirmation bias.

For your growing yuri list: I hear Ymir is now considered canon in love with Krista? In Attack on Titan. Not sure if it's reciprocated or not though. A friend told me.

I’ve heard a few people talk about it. I won’t know since it isn ‘t a series I pay attention too and don’t know where to find the proof within all the doujins that are floating around. I could possibly put it under Lesbians on the Side, since it isn’t the main story. *shrugs* Need to update that list seeing the way the summer season has been turning out.

This is something that was bugging me a little bit so, as always, I’ve decided to make an infograph. 

Maybe other artists disagree, but when I ask for a request, it’s a fun game. You give me a suggestion and I build on it. It’s a team project. You don’t know what you’re going to get.

If your request takes longer than 3 sentences to describe, it’s not a request. It’s a commission. It’s something so specific, the artist will essentially be working for your specific scene for free.

And of course - DO NOT REQUEST THAT AN ARTIST DRAW YOU SOMETHING if you don’t see that they are specifically accepting requests.

People have been requesting free art from us our whole lives. We’ve had plenty of that. If we want to draw you free stuff, we’ll let ya know. Don’t just assume we have free time - just like you wouldn’t come up to a doctor at a grocery store and ask them to examine your twisted ankle.

Unless you’re a person who does that… in which case… don’t do that either.

I’d like to remind people that this goes for writing requests, too.

And if an artist or writer has a list of “what I do/don’t do” then please respect that.

i’d also like to add that artists and writers have a right to deny requests they feel uncomfortable filling, for any reason. please don’t get mad at them, especially if no money is involved.

This. so this. all of this.

What I find annoying is that some people actually think I’m selfish for not taking requests or commissions when I explain to them I just don’t have the time with all my other work that needs to be done. *sighs* I wish more people would understand that artist/writers are just humans with only so much they can do in a day…

Unfinished but I’ll just put it here. Made it just for practice drawing and fangirl purpose xD.

I’m not an English speaker soo.. There were some SFX that I didn’t know how they are written in english and I left it blank. I wish someone could help me with the dialog though lol. they sound so awkward and nonsense xD. I’d be very grateful if someone could correct the mistake for me so that I can write something better next time. xD 

Very nicely done. Trust me even those who have spoken English all their lives need some help smoothing things out from time to time, I always ask for help with my spelling corrections and what not.

It looks really good, keep it up. Sorry I can’t be of much help when it comes to writing, I barely know what I’m doing most of the time. LOL
