“Well, Grizzly and I are childhood friends.”
Hunk of the Day: Saturday January 12, 2013
As you guys may know, I’ve got a thing for red heads. But THIS GUY… OMG. I’m gonna melt. <3 *swoon*
This is an old family picture.
My family does not support my being in the LGBTQIA community. They actually are opposed to it. They tell me every day that its disgusting and that it’s sinful and I’ll go to hell for liking women.
I moved out when I was seventeen, and in January I moved back in with them because I couldn’t handle everything that was going on. Every day one of my five siblings tells me to go back to Minnesota. My little brother Charlie (the black baby in the picture) is now 8 and he constantly physically attacks me and tells me that I’m not his sister and to leave. My other siblings make it very obvious and clear that they don’t want me here and my parents tell me constantly that they’re gonna kick me out soon.
I’ve been saving every penny for a bus ticket to Oregon to stay with my best friend and today I found this picture in my sisters’ room ON DISPLAY. Not hidden. On display. They cut my face out of the picture.
And that… That was just the last straw.
I don’t care if anyone reblogs this or whatever, I don’t wanna get popular, I just want people to know that this is not what a family looks like. This is not something people should have to go through.
This is no life.
society needs to adjust its values and realize the real definition of a family
This makes me so upset
Lexus, your parents and your siblings are all misguided. If they’re willing to cut you out simply for being what you are, then, while they may be blood, they aren’t family.
What you’re doing is not sinful. They believe it to be, but it isn’t the case. This is something I and many others like you have struggled with for years. Have faith that God made you exactly as you’re supposed to be are and embrace that. Oh, and another thing - for all their hatred towards you, show compassion for them. Show them how they should truly be acting, with love and kindness, and not hate, fear, and loathing.
Jesus would never turn someone he loved away.
…but keep saving up for that trip. XD I’m sure living with your friend will be a much more supportive environment compared to what you currently have.
A Gifset made for my sister (and me). :D Anastasia and the Baker from Cinderella II. Say what you will about Disney sequels, some of them have great moments.
“You don’t like her. My mother don’t like her. She’s a dog. And I’m a fat, ugly man. Well, all I know is I had a good time last night. I’m gonna have a good time tonight. If we have enough good times together, I’m gonna get down on my knees. I’m gonna beg that girl to marry me. If we make a party on New Year’s, I got a date for that party. You don’t like her? That’s too bad.”~ Marty (1955)
i always thought this ship was so fucking adorable. even though anastasia is a stepsister, when i was little, i could see she at least had a little bit of a good heart, unlike drizella.
pretty sure this is the exact seen that made me attracted to huskier guys.
This is seriously my DnD character to a T. He’s a baker. If he didn’t become an adventurer, I’m sure this is what he’d look like.
Horrible? With a makeover with Ariel’s hair? Girl, you look like the spitting image of her with a pug nose. You don’t look horrible. XD

I love this more than you realize. XD
From Anthony Holden!
What are studios looking for? How can I get into a good animation school? What should I be studying?
I get a lot of these types of questions now and again, and I never know how to answer them. I can’t be sure of what studios are looking for, I don’t control admissions policies to schools, and I have little idea what makes for a current and relevant curriculum. There are a lot of variables in your bid for a career in animation, and it’s kind of impossible to control most of them. You must be crazy to want this job!
I find it helpful to focus on the things I can control. Among those things are your study habits and how you spend your personal time. It’s good to work hard and have goals—without them we would get nowhere. Study hard and make decisive strides towards achieving your art goals. But in the heat of that pursuit, don’t forget to go out and live your life!
If you spend any amount of time looking at artists online, you’ve probably figured out by now that there are about a million dudes and dudettes in internetville who draw better than you (I relive this realization daily). Once your have done your best to rise to their level, the only tool you have to compete with these crazy talents is your background, your personal character—is you!
Consider developing your whole self with the same raw focus and intensity that you develop a particular skill set. Get focused. Go out, have adventures. Run, jump, skin your knee, fall in love, root loudly for the away team at a baseball game, barely escape a crash of stampeding rhinos, live to see another day. Experience things big and small. Go for a walk. The world is full of wonders.
I know this advice is not particularly animation-specific, but maybe that’s for the best. At any rate, it is something I feel strongly about. Animation is great, and there are few things that I enjoy doing more than drawing and storytelling. But in order to have stories to tell, first you have to live them.
Be good, and see you soon!
PS, if you were looking for advice on draftsmanship you should probably be reading this.
This is the best advice for any student or hopeful student. Having lived your life watching cartoons and drawing in your room won’t help you to make stories that involve doing much. I’m a total homebody, but doing things that force you to experience life in different ways is key. So just go to a new place, talk to the weird guy on the street, try a new food, whatever. It will enrich your life and the stories you tell.
you really know how to cut to the core of me, baxter
you’re so wise…. like a miniature buddha, covered in hair
