Saying that people of color cannot show any visible blushing is a big fat myth that only proves how little people actually know about skin tones.
I have seen a lot of skin-tone palettes that includes dark skin, but it is very rarely put in use as examples. And many times I’ve found them to only appear monochrome, while darker skin tones are just as rich in tone variation as fair skin.
And just to be extra nice, I even added the basic colors I used in these two examples. A big protip is to start with the darkest tone as a base and then work to light tones. Use the highlights sparingly, they should not be large but more like small spots. Dark skin is more “reflective”, meaning small highlights pop out more than on lighter skin tones.
I made this set mainly for all the anime artists out there who probably would love to color more poc characters but don’t really know if it’d work out as kawaii as their usual stuff.
News flash: it’s drop-dead super kawaii in all skin tones<3
Thanks so much for this. Also, wow, super cute art!
When someone says they wanna go help kids in Africa
Ask what country
i’ll be like 40 w/no kids and people will say “aw i’m so sorry for you” and i’ll be like how was the fucking wiggles reunion tour asshole i went to italy last week for fun and didn’t have to hire a sitter
This is a very sad mentality. To think oneself more important than that of progeny is the sign of a failed human life.
so the wiggles concert wasn’t as good as you thought it would be huh
LMAO CODY ITS JUST WEED I READ THIS AND GOT WORRIED

aforementioned #operationhelporhush: the starter’s twitter, teepsring shop, amazon wishlist, paypal,
and Michael Brown’s Memorial Fund
Feed the Students of Ferguson (source: starter’s twitter St. Louis Foodbank Confirmation)
i have been seeing a lot of different links for different places to donate for bail and legal fees, but i haven’t been able to find anything on whether or not the funds have actually been going towards helping out the people of ferguson so
if you know of any more please add and spread them and if in doubt remember to google first
the purge is scary because its a time frame in which you could be the target for random, unimpeded & unpunished cruelty just for being in the wrong place + wrong time and youll be blamed for not being adequately prepared & alert
if youre black and/or queer and/or trans this is also known as “every waking moment”
Is Robert Downey Jr’s facebook even real?
It is. And I’ve seen his replies to people and just…he confirmed on Twitter that he runs that fucking facebook and I’m like “YOU!”
