Felt like doing a tutorial thingy (what should I call these??) again! I think I’ll make a tag for these in case I do more. This time I’m gonna talk a little about how angles affect how clothing falls aaaand stuff. Here we go…
Given: The first drawing of these three is how the clothing naturally wants to fall, how it is made to be shaped. Or, whichever pose you could take that will give the garment the least amount of creases.
I’ll actually talk about the green first; this is a representation of the hip box, which itself is a representation/simplification of your whole pelvis area. You see how your legs and hip box oppose angles here. in almost all poses except standing straight, your hip box and legs will create a bent angle, which affects how clothes fall.
The red/blue is the skirt (obvs), the red specifically is the ellipses of the top and bottom openings of the skirt. This skirt is very stiff material for the sake of this example, so notice how the two ellipses always match eachother. the top ellipse is where the skirt is actually attached to the body, so it’s the boss; the bottom ellipse will more or less do exactly what the top one does.
here’s where the fact that the legs and hip box are at different angles becomes important. The top of the skirt is attached to the hip box, but the bottom ellipse is in the realm of the legs. The orange lampshade shape diagram there is a simplification of this. It is very much like if you were to tilt a lampshade. The side you are bending towards will hug the body and create creases. The side you are bending away from will fall off the body in a straight line.

It even works with pants, though as the bottom ellipse(s) gets farther away from the top there’s more room for the garment to get distorted by gravity, perspective, and bent knees and such. But with this last example you can really see how the side touching the legs really hugs the body underneath, whereas the other side hangs off of it in a straighter, crease-less line.
Dresses are a little different because their top ellipse is attached to your torso/ribcage mass rather than the hip box.

Much of the time you get the same result as with a skirt. However if the hip box and ribcage mass are opposed sideways rather than forward or backward, it becomes a little tougher:

You can see in the third drawing how a shirt and a skirt together would fall in opposite ways if your body is bent sideways. If the shirt is long, just like I mentioned above about the long pants, there is more distortion of this effect.
I’ll take what I said above, “The side you are bending away from will fall off the body in a straight line”, and add a bit to the end: “… until it hits something.” In the fourth drawing above, the garment is falling off the body in a straight line on the right side. If you lengthen the garment:

The straight side continues down as normal until it hits the leg and becomes the body-hugging side. in response to that, the body-hugging side from farther up becomes the straight side when it falls off the hip.
Aaand with that I think I’ll stop lol. I hope that wasn’t hard to understand. It’s easy to do yourself, just wear a skirt or some loose pajama pants and take hula poses in the mirror lol.

For all of you who have been longing for ME to make a tutorial about clothes, I truly recommend you to read this post. Since it covers the area in clothing that many other tutorials never mention, clothing is more than just “drawing folds and wrinkles”, it’s about knowing how the design and the behavior of our bodies affect it.
So yeah.
Read this. Please. It’s so easy explained.

Rebloging for future references.

how can you not see ableism as a feminist issue

autistic girls, especially black autistic girls, are misdiagnosed and underdiagnosed because of the focus on white cis boys and how they present as autistic

disabled girls and women often have their consent violated, both in medical procedures and otherwise, our bodies and minds are often not considered are own and we are dismissed as not having the capacity to make our own decisions

on top of that many disabled girls are seen as delusional and their speaking out about the abuse they have face, by whatever communication method, is often seen as them making things up and over reacting

many disabled women are fetishised and seen as an outrageous ‘thing’ to fuck, but are not seen as human

disabled girls, especially physically disabled girls, do not live up to ideas of beauty in our society and often have extreme self esteem issues

disabled women and girls face more shit than you could ever know and I need you to understand

Ableism. Is. A. Feminist. Issue.

For many Muslim Americans, 9/11 was a double punch of tragedy and bigotry

The actions of 19 Islamic extremists on 9/11 left an indelible mark on America. Today, millions pause to commemorate the attacks’ 13th anniversary, to honor the victims and to remember that all life is special and sacred. But there’s an untold story amid the many speeches and moments of silence — one filled with a different kind of pain, grief and strong sense of loss. 

Those stories are now being told on social media

muslim americans as well as arab americans regardless of religious background and poc arbitrarily perceived to be arab

Breaking news: The D.C. Appeals Court just killed Net Neutrality.This could be the end of the Internet as we know it. But it doesn’t have to be. Tell the FCC to restore Net Neutrality: http://bit.ly/1iOOjoe

they want to make the internet like tv. with channels and paying to get to specific websites and things. net neutrality = not doing that

This impacts every internet user. Please signal boost the hell out of this and sign the petition if you are American

I do not reblog things like this very often, but this affects me both personally and my business as a freelance artist.
In the economy here; cash is already strapped as it is. You bet your ass companies would suck the ever living life out of misc. art sites.
I don’t want it to ever come down to me choosing between groceries or purchasing a new tier package via comcast to be able to access tumblr or DeviantArt (let alone not guaranteeing I’ll even be seen by my customer base since they may not want to pay out their asses either). It doesn’t seem important to most, but I do 90% of my business online entirely.
Please sign up, fight for this and share it with your followers/friends/family and urge them to give them hell as well.

Not writing related, but this is incredibly important. While we pay for service via ISPs, the internet has been a relatively free space where everyone, no matter their income level, is able to connect, access a wealth of information, and express themselves. The Internet has become a major part of our culture as human beings and the notion that ISPs might be able to limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more is utterly sickening. A lot of us are cash strapped as is, and I’d rather not be limited even more by someone else’s greed. Net Neutrality is essential and I hope you guys will understand why it needs to remain.

After a lot of asks and some flabbergasted tags about this post I made yesterday, I decided to throw a quick tutorial together on the steps I took to make some semi-real looking paper cut out art in SAI! Hope this clears it up and helps some others out who want to try this!

I think this is applicable to just about everyone on the planet. Growing up is hard…very hard, and its painful to look back and see just how much sacrifice growing up takes.
Its even harder when you know you were someone else’s sacrifice.

Nah, pretty easy, the guy turned into a total ass hat,

we grew apart…..

I think…… she and I were almost never to be friends forever….. I’ll always keep the bracelet she made me. My first grade best friend…… I think she moved away too……

WHAT ABOUT THE GUY THAT FALLS OUT OF THE WINDOW

WHY IS IT BACK

no you guys don’t understand, not only is this the first harlem shake out there… these guys aren’t normal military. This is “Telemarkbataljonen”. They’re pretty much the Norwegian equivalent of the fucking black ops. My brother knows a guy in this battalion, and when asked what they do there, he looked my brother dead in the eye and said “That is strictly confidential”. These guys are hard as shit, which makes this even more hilarious

The actual news article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2726219/Yasmin-Thomas-victim-disgusted-walked-free.html

"But womenz are so oppressed! "

You realize that he probably instigated her? People dont just do these things. You just like to hear the one side of the story that you want to.

yeah I mean when men beat their women it’s probably because she overcooked dinner or something what a hoe she totally deserves it just like this guy

Just like all those 18 other people she assaulted instigated her! </sarcasm>
Open your fucking eyes.

quietly scoring out all previous comments because they’re all apparently made by either anti-sj’s/anti-feminists or generally ignorant people
let’s put it this way: this is one of many reasons why we need feminism. We’ll state first that statistically, women are beaten more often than men. But let’s continue. Women are generally considered frailer, weaker, more helpless sex, incapable of doing any sort of damage to a person that isn’t emotional. Meanwhile, men are generally considered dominant in a relationship. If anyone’s to do the beating, it’s expected to be them. It’s even just another masculine thing to do.
when we apply these expectations to a relationship where a woman is domestically assaulting a man, the man isn’t taken seriously because the gender roles we enforce on him dictate that “he should have been able to defend himself”, “he’s a sissy”, “she can’t have hurt him that much” and so on. And then the woman is too often let off because “she can’t have done any real damage”, “female on male violence isn’t serious”, “women can’t be dangerous” and etc.
we need feminism so that all genders can be equal, and equality means that when a man beats a woman, that man should be brought to justice, and vice versa. After 18 assaults, Yasmin Thomas should have been convicted with a significantly harsher sentence and that’s all there really is to it.

Shut the fuck up with your “patriarchy is why gender roles exist!” bullshit. Gender roles are going to exist based on biology, deal with it. The issue is with the law, which was written in FAVOR OF WOMEN. Just as laws for rape are. And feminists constantly push the idea that only men are capable of things like rape and assault, and that women who do those things are justified in their actions or “not real feminists.”
Just look at the case where a woman captured and held a man hostage while repeatedly raping him, feminists on this site CHEERED HER ON and said he deserved it because he was a man. They constantly parade around with “male tears” and “kill all men” bullshit and you’re saying they’re for EQUALITY? We all know feminism today has turned into a man hating, disgusting movement.
And then you go and score out people’s comments just because you don’t agree with them, because obviously if they disagree with feminism, they don’t deserve to have a say, SO MUCH EQUALITY RITE?

i don’t think you paid attention to a single word i said, back off
i didn’t score out the comments because i don’t agree with them. I scored them out because they — and the so called ‘feminists’ they are condemning — have the complete wrong idea about what real feminism IS. Feminism isn’t a fight for the superiority of women, it’s a fight for equality and if practiced CORRECTLY (NOT by cheering on a woman for repeatedly raping a man, which is in all forms sexual assault), it will lead to change
people need to get rid of the idea that feminism is intended to be a “kill all men” movement as you call it, because it’s harmful to the cause, to women, to men, to everyone. People need to stop associating mis-practicing radical feminists like FEMA and people who apparently consider it justice to rape and beat men with real feminism. These radical feminists are put at the forefront of the movement by people who hate feminism so they can point at them and say “look how stupid these women are!”
just like the other commenters you’re completely mistaken about what the movement’s real intentions are. And that you think that gender roles are going to continue to exist because “gender roles are biological” and we should just “deal with it” just solidifies your ignorance

Since I know anti-feminists have trouble reading, let me break it down simply: 
Equality means women get punished for their crimes regardless of their sex or gender.
Feminism strives for equality. 
The law that allows female criminals to go free are the same laws that belittle and devalue a woman’s strength and therefore do not consider her the VERY REAL THREAT that she is.
If you took women seriously, as feminism expects you to, then you would take their crimes seriously. 
That is why feminism is important—to put criminals like this away regardless of her sex. 
If you continue to abide by the “biological gender roles” bullshit then good luck with getting justice for a woman’s crimes. Your idiotic anti-feminism is what lets her go scot-free in the first place.

One day I fell asleep and I never woke up

For an explanation of this video, because it’s a fucking trip. It’s about a young girl entering a coma, and the thing darker awaiting her is death. It has really deep symbolism and the artist is astounding. I love this video so much.

Hey! Just thought you might like to know who made this! It was made by Katy Towell, Artist and Author of many, many creepy videos, as well as a (really good) book! Most of them are about children, and how utterly creepy they can be!
