@babushka i dk if ur interested but heres a lil rundown on how i usually do my digital phone art :3
first i upload a traditional sketch, sometimes ill edit my proportions and posing with the transform tool
then on a new layer i do the line art!! (often with the canvass mirrored so i can avoid mistakes i didnt see before)
for medibang paint on ur phone these check marked boxes will allow ur brush stroke to have a varied thickness than u can figure out and use to ur advantage (this only works for a few brushes though :( )
after that i just hide my sketch layer and make a new layer under the line art where i just do some simple flat color with the paint bucket tool (i still havent figured out shading digitally)
oh cool! Medibang! I saw it being recommended but i don't remember it being on phones like mine. Did you do that with a some sort of stylus or by hand??
redraw of a mark i drew abt a year ago under the cut :3
here i was just learning how to draw digitally on my phone so naturallly the line art is a bit lacking but i still love the colors and wanted to do a lil tribute to it
you did thats on your phONE? Dude that's insanely good. And the redraw is even better
it's kind of a cultural thing to tell everyone else that they don't know real bad weather regardless where you are and where they are. I find that I can't even say "it's cold here" without anyone from elsewhere interpreting that as "I know real cold, I am the only one who has ever been cold" because it's just that expected
or rather, I couldn't say. I'm in the desert now and no longer experience "cold" as a sensation
From what I've seen it's more that most Americans don't know that eroupeans don't usually have air conditioning, that combined with Americans in certain areas being used to higher temperatures has lead to ignorant jokes
i dont...understand why people make jokes about this sort of thing like it's not funny not everyone has access to technologies that help us in times of extreme weather. then again, a lot of people are fucked up and so desensitized that they dont care how rude their "jokes" come across
"HAHAHAHA EUROPE THINKS ITS HOT AND CANT COPE LOL"
i mean we're dying of heat stroke karen
it's just as often a matter of literally just not knowing that other places (even within the us, to say nothing of other countries) have different weather expectations and different equipment on hand
like, for a similar but slightly different angle, growing up in the north we thought it was hilarious that schools and businesses and stuff more southward would close for snow because the only way snow can stop wisconsin is by literally barricading our doors, our schools only canceled if the buses can't make it through the snow and ice which is typically once a year. it was kind of mind blowing to be informed that they close for "just a foot of snow" or whatever seemingly laughable amount because they don't keep nearly as much equipment (snow plows, salt, etc) to deal with a problem they don't actually see often
central air is very common throughout the us so it's a lot of assuming that europe must have 1. the same heat and 2. the same tools to deal with it
Russia also has no AC but also no heatwaves yet. Hot water disappeas occasionally in Summer but that's it
I have these resin rings that I’ll sell for $15 US each. They’re 1 size fits most, but I’ll send a bit of chain along if you’re not sure they’ll fit so they can be worn on necklaces. And like with my witch bottles, I won’t charge for shipping if you’re in the US. But they ARE first come first serve so please talk to me before sending money if you want one.
I’ll make some more soon but these are what I have rn. My ko-fi account is: https://ko-fi.com/catfluid
Will update when I add more or they are sold!
hiccups are the devils work
One of the best ways I’ve found to deal with hiccups is to have someone (even if it’s just yourself) ask you to prove that you have the hiccups. It’s like, never failed me. I can never hiccup to prove it. Don’t ask me why this works.
my mom used to try that with me bc when I was younger I'd get hiccups whenever I so much as giggled (now I only get them if I laugh super hard) and she also tried the "I'll give you 5 dollars if you hiccup for me right now". this would backfire because nothing, apparently, could supress the hiccups of doom.

being that temperatures in some areas are going to be off the shits, please please please remember to stay cool and hydrated! if you or someone else find yourself feeling dizzy, nauseous, experiencing muscle weakness, or having a rapid heartbeat, quickly get yourself or the person experiencing symptoms to a cooler area! use a damp cloth on your underarms on forehead to help cool down. if it doesnt help or symptoms worsen, seek medical help!
here's how you can stay cool:
feel free to add any additional tips o/
Excellent post! A few extras from me:
- abby, a brit who is sivk of these fucking heatwaves
putting something back in the dishwasher like "okay this didn't get clean the first 50 times but maybe 51 is exactly how many it needs and me hand washing it now would be a complete waste of my time and energy. can't risk it"
Dude, we don’t wven have a dish washer and we do this shit. We just put it back in the sink and hope the whoever’s up for dishes gets it right next time.
its absolutely baffling how many times thisbhqs happened in a row with the same dish.
