Drawing people is hard. Drawing people with realistic, distinctive faces is REALLY hard.

I’m trying to make up for all the years of dicking around instead of building up my art skills, and a while back I asked people to lend me their selfies so that I could practice.

Here they all are!

  1.  anchorfaced
  2.  @alljustletters
  3.  cuddlytogas
  4. kalenea
  5. arkytiorforemancampbell
  6. novangla
  7. thinkingingallifreyan
  8. cuddlesomefrank

pippin4242 , I’m still trying to pick one from your massive archive. It’s harder because I know you in person.

Anyway, I’m looking for new selfies to draw, so if you want to donate your face to art, comment here, reblog with a link, or send me a message. 

I was tagged by kiradax. I will proceed to list five things that make me happy, as per the rules of the post I was tagged in.

1. Redacted. I’ll let you guess.

2. Things that are red.

3. Listening to music that I like. Such as this, this, and this. (That last one is a bit vain of me, but you know what? It’s great. :D Though the initial title card on that video does misspell the name, the actual video title is right as per the name stated on the album. Which is the correct spelling. Obviously.)

4. Thinking about stuff. (Which also makes me sad but not thinking about stuff makes me sad and never makes me happy, so on balance thinking about stuff is better.)

5. People appreciating and valuing my existence. I make an effort to make sure that people have reason to, and it seems to work. Mostly.

I could tag people, but I am feeling distracted right now so if you’ve read this far then you are tagged. Yes, you.

"In fact, the only things in the flat Crowley devoted any personal attention to were the houseplants. They were huge, and green, and glorious, with shiny, healthy, lustrous leaves.

This was because, once a week, Crowley went around the flat with a green plastic plant mister spraying the leaves, and talking to the plants….

Although talking is perhaps the wrong word for what Crowley did.

What he did was put the fear of God into them.

More precisely, the fear of Crowley.

In addition to which, every couple of months Crowley would pick out a plant that was growing too slowly, or succumbing to leaf-wilt, or browning, or just didn’t look quite as good as the others, and he would carry it around to all the plants. “Say goodbye to your friend,” he’d say to them. “He just couldn’t cut it…”

Then he would leave the flat with the offending plant, and return an hour or so later with a large empty flower pot, which he would leave somewhere conspicuously around the flat.

The plants were the most luxurious, verdant, and beautiful in London. Also the most terrified."

The Slight Return of Doctor Dwarf

Half-Face Man: I will not die. I will reach the Promised Land.
The Doctor: There isn't any Promised Land! This is just a superstition that you've picked up.
Half-Face Man: No Promised Land? But where do all the calculators go?

Some furry new allies on today’s Doctor Kawaii! 
I have made so many eyebrow jokes already on Doctor Kawaii I was honestly taken a little aback when the Doctor himself made so much fun of them in the show.
Loving the new Doctor so far, I can’t wait to see where this goes.

animate-mush replied to your post “I could probably explain why the dinosaur was so big in Deep Breath. …”

Yeah, I’m solidly in the “unattested Therapod” camp.

Well, it certainly is an unattested theropod, gargantuan size or not, but while tyrannosaurus rex is by no means the largest theropod out there the apparent size of this thing would need an overhaul of how physics applies to dinosaurs…

But fortunately we have the Silurians who are probably experts in genetic manipulation and could probably grow their own dinosaur to whatever size they liked; especially if they added structural enhancements.

And we know some Silurians left Earth altogether, so perhaps the Doctor picked it up from a space ship with low-gravity conditions, accounting for its size. Which means it probably was doing pretty well surviving on Earth for as long as it did, especially given the difference in oxygen levels between Victorian London and Cretaceous London. (Which I assume would have been the same on the spaceship as in the Cretaceous. Which actually leads to an interesting thought about Madame Vastra and her ability to “store oxygen” in her lungs.)

My last and slightly cheatier hypothesis is that when the TARDIS passed through the Cretaceous it materialised the wrong size, was swallowed up by the tyrannosaurid dinosaur, and when landing again it recalculated the dimensions of the outer shell to be the correct size during rematerialisation. But in doing so it rematerialised the dinosaur as proportionally the same size relative to itself during the Cretaceous and landed a 100+ metre tall dinosaur into the heart of 19th century London. Again, the dinosaur did well to survive for as long as it did, and would probably not have survived the journey back.
