I dont normally post/reblog stuff like this, but jeasus christ im dying.
the winged dreamers, from star trek: new voyages, a story about butterflies that ’exist merely for living their dreams’ influence the crew of the enterprise to see what they want the most and spock’s dream is to be alone with jim and only jim on this paradise planet forever, and jim starts to explain why that might be to mccoy, then realizes he is going to give ‘too much away’ and spends the rest of the story protecting spock’s motives and touching spock
This is the story that made me start shipping—not just shipping Spock/Kirk, but SHIPPING. It was the first time I had seen that emotional frisson put into words—I didn’t have the words for what it was, I only knew I wanted more of it.
I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly. :(
Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy! You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through. You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way! Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!
Love your art, love yourself!
Prepare yourselves appropriately, because this is happening.
Batgirl is getting a relaunch by Cameron Stewart, Brenden Fletcher and Babs Freakin’ Tarr. You know, your actual favourite artist who drew the Bosozoku Sailor Scouts? SHE’S DRAWING BATGIRL. I’ll calm down… eventually?!
My new style inspo for F/W 2014.
But seriously, I need Barbara’s new utility belt.
P.S. Congratulations, Cameron, Brenden, & Babs! ♡♡♡
omg perf costume design
A superb fuck-ton of clothing references.
Obviously two of the images are too large to see on tumblr (because tumblr’s an asshole, sometimes), so simply reverse-image search ‘em and click on the largest size. The one on the left is quite helpful for cloth in general, and the one on the right is just for creating lace.
