Look, I’m a nobody.  And that’s why attribution is important.

When you repost the artwork of a nobody, the least you can do is link back to their gallery.  I can’t directly make money on my fanart, so at the very least an artist like me is really only able to collect a high five for my stuff, and an opportunity to gush with someone new about fandom. 

It’s not like all artists post online for praise.  While comments are useful to me for various reasons I’m not dying for them, I’m dying to be a fan with people.  But if that’s what I wanted, I think it’s a fair exchange to show artwork and get a link back.  For some people, it’s the first time they’ve ever seen somebody like a piece.  To some artists (new ones, especially) it means the world to them.

Yet, somehow people are too fucking put out to link back or just respect an artists’s wishes or even fucking read them.  It doesn’t cost you anything to link back, and yet people are such pieces of shit that they can’t even hit ctrl+c and ctrl+v.  People spend more time tagging work for their own blogs, which takes WAY more time than a copy+paste URL in your description.  If I just described you, yeah, at best I think you’re rude and at worst I think you’re a lazy piece of shit, incapable of creating anything of any value (which is why art gets stolen) because even your basic curation skills suck.  I’m also sure words like that would roll off of a shitty person’s back because they have to; it’s a lot of work to commit to staying shitty.  I get it.

I joined tumblr after a three-year hiatus in which I deleted everything of mine online (with a couple exceptions) and didn’t speak to people outside of one art forum, and this kind of crap was definitely a major factor in that decision.  I started posting again as a way to show I wasn’t quitting art (which I considered), but to also participate in fandom.  So let me fucking participate.  Artists aren’t fucking media machines, and you may actually find that being considerate to them makes them want to share more work.  But GJ being a parasite and killing the host.  Whatever.

Starfire is not orange and Raven is not grey

teen-tyrant:

Starfire is very tanned because of her homeworld, and the best color to use with the rest of her color scheme to make her look tanned is orange. It does not mean that she actually has orange skin.

Raven is pale. The best color to make her look pale with the rest of her color…

Well, it’s not an opinion. And how do you figure it’s bad? I’m just pointing out that Starfire and Raven, the actual characters, not the characters as they are drawn, aren’t actually these colors. That’s just how they are drawn to show their extreme skin tones, and the only way to properly display them is for Starfire to be drawn with an orange tone and Raven with a grey one, but if they were to be pulled out of the television and deposited in the real world as flesh and blood, they wouldn’t actually be those colors. Just respectively very tan and very pale.

I get what you’re saying, OP, but this isn’t quite that simple, and you actually touched on its lack of simplicity in your original statement.  The colors can be seen as representations of things.  Which also allows for varied representations.  As a result of this, there actually is no “only way to properly display them,” even when translating them to “reality,” because if they’re divorced from their fictional origins, they’re no longer Raven and Starfire.

Trying to wrap my head around the purpose of making that statement, and at best I would think that the purpose is because you’re seeing people represent them “wrong?”  I don’t quite get how it’s wrong when representations of them are just as varied and fictional as the characters. It may have been a stronger argument to make during analogue cell shaded animation/comic days, because there was a limited range of colors available, but digital tech makes this obsolete.  Color choice is very deliberate which means it’s valid to make deliberate in a “real-world” translation.

So orange and grey are valid interpretations that can be translated literally or just referenced in art and writing.  Color design is what dictates the tone of the work, which is why we’re seeing those colors.  (It’s also why we see the crazy flourescent palettes in TTG.)  It’s valid to represent variants within the range of human skintone in cosplay (or gritty movie remakes), for example, which people have done, but other aspects complicate things, which is why I ignored this post until reading “the only way to properly display them is for Starfire to be drawn with an orange tone and Raven with a grey one.”

It’s sort of a valid statement to make if basing that on one interpretation, but it’s ultimately a false statement to make and here’s why:  

- Certain palettes do better based on drawing style (as in, drawing conventions).
When one makes a statement about “proper” representation of a fictional character, I have to think it’s with this in mind, so… that’s not accurate.  + That story tone thing I already mentioned.

- Starfire’s an alien.  Raven’s half human.
If she’s from a fictional planet where the sky is magenta (or some variant of violet, either way), and her eyes are glowing green, it’s perfectly reasonable to assume her skin can actually be orange.  Raven, being half demon, can be interpreted as gray-skinned (and since this differs from her comic counterpart, I tend to assume that representing her with gray skin implies that her character is based off of the TV universe).  TV Raven’s gray skin could be a result of what happens when mixing Trigon with Arella in this universe, and in turn it’s perfectly reasonable to just call her skin gray.

- They’re made up.
All it takes is a new creator to interpret it differently and it’s changed forever— which is why we have gray-skinned Raven and orange Starfire.

- The merchandise varies.
On that new Kotobukiya figure Starfire’s got orange skin, for example, while Raven’s is more fleshy and pinkish, but the TV merch is true to the TV palette. These are physically tangible translations of 2D characters, so all are fair game.

- In TTG Cyborg has literally called Starfire that “orange girl.” 
Sure, I could call people with bad fake tans “orange” which is not a normal human skintone, but it doesn’t change the fact that it’s because their skin is actually orange.  If Beast Boy can be green, then Raven can be gray and Starfire can be orange, and actually have these portrayed as real skin colors when translated to the “real” world.  They don’t have to be, but they most certainly can be.  

(I actually don’t care what creators say.  Like I mentioned, all you need is one representation to seem legit and it’s valid, it’s accepted.  That’s pretty much how art works— it ignores even Word of God reasoning.  One could argue that if Wolfman or Perez spoke up about it there’s an argument to be made, but what works, in making art, is the ultimate authority IMO.)

- That’s not how actual painting works.
If the statement is made because there is a literal RGB/CMYK/etc color you feel people aren’t using, lemme stop you right there (I sorta doubt that’s what you mean, but I’m still gonna address it).

So again— I get it, but it’s not a complete or accurate statement, but it can’t be separated from the fiction and art aspects, especially with no stated purpose.

bitchesaloud:

bitches don’t be so full of ourselves and be thankful for people reblogging ur art (and therefore liking it and promoting it) and of course people are entitled to delete the artist comment since it’s their fucking blog and they’ll do the fuck the want with them

LOL I can’t believe how greedy and unthankful some people can be

so since this comment turns out to be real, I’ll say this:

Under your logic, anyone would be “entitled” to punch you in your face if they wanted to and you shouldn’t have a problem with it because it’s their hand and they can do whatever the fuck they want with it. That’s your screwy logic.

Also… Greedy??? Unthankful?????
Who the fuck would be thankful that some asshole decided that their input on their own artwork, that they worked hard on, wasn’t good enough for their blog?????

I don’t want anyone reblogging my art who can’t even respect me enough to leave my commentary where I put it. We put our comments there for it to STAY THERE. REBLOGGING OUR ART DOES NOT MEAN IT NOW BELONGS TO YOU AND YOU CAN DO WHAT YOU PLEASE WITH IT.

What the actual fuck is wrong with you and everyone who reblogged your shitty comment????

Please also note that the length, subject, and relevancy of an artist’s comment do not change this.

Even if you feel the comment is too long— even if you feel the piece can do without it— it is not your place to remove the artist’s comment.

Removing a comment from a piece:

  • takes away an artist’s voice
  • disembodies an artist from their work
  • may abstract needed clarity
  • may remove important notes, details, or text that adds to the piece (even if you feel it does not)
  • removes an easy link that allows people to find the artist (their username over their comment, that is)
  • is straight up disrespectful

Please stop removing comments artists leave on their work.

Maybe that’s not understandable to people who DON’T ACTUALLY KNOW HOW TO MAKE ANYTHING OF VALUE AND ACT LIKE FUCKING LEECHES with our work, but yeah.  Imma just say it— artist’s aren’t thankful for reblogging our stuff with our comments removed. Many have learned to “deal with it,” but that’s only because otherwise it might get to them and they’d never share their artwork again. People who reblog and mess with artist’s comments are the ones who are sad and greedy. Either leave the comments alone or DRAW YOUR OWN SHIT. We don’t ask for money, for the most part. We just want our artist’s statements up. They do that shit in galleries, and online is like our gallery.

Also, uh, to those who remove comments because it doesn’t “look good” on your blog you’re a stupid sad pleb (y’know, the opposite of having a “cool” blog) because you obviously don’t now what display:none does in CSS. If you change your layout like underwear LEARN THAT GODDAMNED PIECE OF CODE. Not speaking for other artists when I say this but I don’t care as much about it on a blog’s front page as I do care when it’s all over a dashboard where tumblr is -actually- used (again that’s my own prerogative).

Every time I see it happen to an artist I wish there were some sort of mob that spammed the shit out of the offending blog until it fixed the post.

You're an extremely talented artist that could represent anything. Why do you choose to depict celebrities and iconic figures? I believe your artwork could have so much more merit and can contribute much more to society then just entertainment. You even have your symbol as the golden spiral, which I find rather smug for an artist who creates "fan art". I don't intend to offend, it just greatly bothers me to see such a talented artist create advertisement and I would like to know why.

samspratt:

Oh boy.

"Smug" is arbitrarily thinking that one entire genre of art is less than another. 

"Smug" is anonymous back-handed compliments that insult an entire group of artists while trying to police what I choose to make.

"Smug" is thinking that you bestow merit to art and decide its value or contribution to society — or that it needs to do that to begin with.

"Smug" is believing that advertisements are something that automatically lessens art when some of the best painters and works throughout art history, from Leonardo to Caravaggio to Rockwell and Leyendecker have worked in advertising for clients (churches included).

"Smug" is looking at my portfolio of hundreds of paintings over 3 years that cover dozens of genres, styles, subject matters, clients, and sits everywhere from the internet, to billboards, album covers, magazine covers, galleries, newspapers, movie posters, bus-sides, books, homes of friends, strangers, and celebrities, and still choosing to think that I am one thing — a thing that is just as valuable to me as everything I’m paid for professionally.

"Smug" is being a smug dicklet and throwing in “I don’t intend to offend” to cushion the smug dickletishness of it all.

"Smug" is not seeing a simplistic connection between realism in painting and the golden rule that is genre-irrelevant, but again insulting an entire group of artists while commenting on something you haven’t bothered to understand. 

But most of all, “Smug” is thinking that I, or any artist, owes you anything. We can make whatever we want, however we want to. I will keep making advertisements, I will keep making album covers, I will keep making posters for games and movies, I will keep making all that I’m hired to do and choose to take on, but I will also keep making fan art because despite the merit or value that you’ve decided it has — I want to — and that’s all the reason I need.

Take your soggy waffle compliments and fuck the fuck off. Viva la fan art.

This is a bit of a random question but what would you say a beginner artist should learn at first ? Also there are so many things out there to learn in art. It's so overwhelming owo

(Sorry, I can’t answer quickly because weekdays are busy, and I wanted to think about this a little. I talked to some friends at art school so this is informed by what they said too)

I’m of two minds for this, and this is under the assumption that you wanna draw forever (because I’m simple-minded in that regard). On one hand, the masochistic forever-student that I think all artists are in me wants to say practical stuff, because if you want to draw well, you just HAVE to know stuff. So, here’s my ideas on that:

im-just-honest asked:
I was searching through the Red X tag and then I found you and oh my god you're amazing. Instant follow. I guess my question would be how to you go bout drawing body types? Do you draw skeletons or just rough outlines and go from there?

Ahhh thank you! I sometimes worry about what I’ve done to the Red X tag, lol.

(First- sorry, I can’t do visuals and have to be brief because I just can’t fit in an extended answer. I have three really demanding studio classes and am operating on 16 hours of sleep per week; am constantly in some deep shit D: )

Generally with figures I’m thinking beyond just construction, I’m thinking intent, too. Really quick my prep is:

1. What’s the point/feeling of the pic (the pose will mirror this)?
2. Where do I want people to look, and why?
3. (After figuring out action/camera angle/composition) Main figure’s line of action. I do the pose myself a lot.
4. Big, general masses, (rib cage and spine/pelvis position, NO DETAILS, just big masses first. Basic shapes.); the rest of the body follows with those things. I play with the ratio of hip to shoulders to change body types, and basic geometric shapes to change the type. (Rectangle for lithe, triangle for super buff, etc.)
5. Make sure figure is grounded on a plane! (Not toppling over/lopsided. Sorry, I don’t have a scientific way of doing this, it’s instinctual for me)
6. Draw; if it looks weird look in a mirror and do the pose to know how it feels.

Thing is, all of this stuff is informed with my basic anatomy studies. If you’re practicing it wouldn’t hurt to try and draw a skeleton under your figures, or even under photos, etc. Do reference warm ups before working on a piece, of things that look like what you wanna draw for your main pic. It really really helps if you do it right before starting on a new pic.

Argh, sorry, not being able to go into detail is frustrating but hopefully you can google some terms to find good blogs on stuff (line of action, look for john k’s blog). Ugh, gotta go, sorry, sorry. DX

how much is a loaf of bread? hm? $3? $5? 

At my local grocery store, bread is about $4.50 for a decent size italian loaf. If I make $7.25 and hour, that means I’d have to work 37 and a half minutes for a Loaf of bread.

but hey, that’s not so bad right? Work two hours and you’ll have a sandwich, eh?

Oh hey, turns out I also need toilet paper, rice, chicken, some veggies, a can of soup, and some cereal. (to name a few basic groceries one might need on a budget) we’ll round those things down to $25 just to make the math easier.

at $7.25 an hour I’ll have to work about 3 and a half hours for basic groceries.

That doesn’t include bills or gas or all the other groceries I need, That’s ONE quick trip to the store and I already have to work half a day just for that.

You don’t understand Anon, my pages could take HOURS if not DAYS. Between the sketching, inking, colouring, lettering, and finishing it’s taken at least a full two day’s work if not longer for each page.

I have a job that pays me beans, I cannot afford to post more pages a week without compensation. I literally cannot afford to do that. Not to mention the idea that art is only worth minimum wage cheapens the amount of work and effort that goes into producing it. I should be making WELL ABOVE minimum wage for my art via page count and commissions but it’s this damn “deviant art” mindset that makes people feel like they’re being swindled for paying a livable wage to artists. It’s rude and childish and I ask that you please stop considering artists as less worthy of affording a normal life.

You can either pay me what I ask for what you want or stop complaining about what I already give you for free.

I honestly think $100 is a tiny bit much, but all the time being put into it probably makes it worth it. u n u
[ I’ve honestly never seen $100 for a page, but I’ve seen like.. $80? But if you can’t afford stuff that’s a pretty good deal]

Hey friend, I know$100 may seem like a lot but lemme break it down for you as it’s been explained to me by working professionals. Please don’t take this as calling you out, it’s just that this comment is popping up a bit and your’s happened to be phrased the nicest. ha ha

Pencils, inks, and colours are all three separate jobs which all take about a day to do. Each of those 3 jobs are paid between 45-80 bucks per page per job typically with a bonus upon a set page completion. (Each chapter, end of issue, end of book/series)

Going solely by $ per hour each page (pencils, inks, colours, lettering, and finishing) of my webcomic takes at least two full days of work to complete. Let’s estimate a solid 16hrs (usually more). Minimum wage is $7.25/hr so I would be paid a minimum of $116 for those completed pages.

But wait! I’ve spent 10 years learning how to draw and design and produce comics! Surely my experience is worth a few extra bucks! And hey, my computer and graphic tablet and Photoshop didn’t pay for themselves! So I’ll add another few bucks,

Charging $15/hr (which is generally agreed to be what minimum wage today should be) would net me $240 for the SAME amount of work. Over twice as much. Literally over twice as much for charging a standard set amount for the work I’m producing. 

Someone in the comments asked me if I’m a professional artist, and to that I have to say; the only difference between a “artist” and an “professional artist” is whether or not they value their work enough to price it ethically.

these are such good posts

In my Illustration class, we were talking about how magazines pay about $600 per page. People trying to delude themselves if they think artists can live off of chump change.

These are awesome points.  I just wanted to also highlight what was alluded to up there but not explicitly said:

It’s a good way to demonstrate to people who otherwise wouldn’t know, what it takes to make art (time and money), and that’s why it’s enlightening to break work into a hypothetical hourly rate.

However, breaking work down into an hourly rate is not the same as an artist actually charging an hourly rate.  In fact, it’s often a bad idea to charge an hourly rate,as an artist.  it causes clients to needlessly nickel and dime, and focus too much on how long it takes to do X and Y, when that’s not something clients need to decide or even worry about.  Clients don’t have the right to screw up/dictate artist process.  They should stay the hell away if they actually want quality work, in fact.

We are taught to have some standardized practices as working illustrators, (thumbnailing/sketching/revision for example), but a watercolor, digital, or oil piece can all be worth the same amount of money, but it takes different amount of time to complete work in these different mediums.  It doesn’t mean the artist’s skill is any less, just because one medium is faster than another, but skill is certainly one thing a client is paying for.

Just wanted to throw that out there, since I’ve seen the hourly rate/materials cost argument a lot but nobody ever talks about this.  SOLIDARITY, guys, keep fighting the good fight. :D

Oh, and btw?  According to the Graphic Artists Guild Handbook (which cites industry standard prices and practices), a comic page, ON THE LOW END, costs $100 for a penciller.  Just a penciller.  That’s the lowest price for a colorist, too.  A fully painted page (as in the entire process, compared to those aforementioned singular tasks) is $200 minimum.  $100 isn’t asking too much.

Same exact forms; different treatment.

These are all so beautiful (they always are). Which is your favorite to draw? Define favorite however you wish—based on how much time it takes, whatever you have the motivation to do.

I think I’ve seen the left two the most often in your art; do you have any of the far right? That’s my favorite in comics and I don’t see it as much as I’d like.

Although I’d seriously read an entire TT book with the minimalist (?) style of the black, white and red—it look so cool the way you use that style with Starfire and Red X!

Oh crap, sorry, I meant to reply like ten million years ago! (Actually I’m not sure if I replied but don’t think so?  SORRY, UGH.)  Thank you~! Honestly my favorite (to work in) changes with moods, or I choose styles based on what’s realistic to finish reasonably/what I want to practice with what’s fitting with the image’s tone/message (yeeeah, the message on this blog, is mostly “UGH, SORRY NO TIME DX”).  That far right style is mostly for pinup style pictures since it requires higher attention to craft. D8  I wish I were a badass like Alex Ross who paints his comics but I get too stuck in details; it’s a bad choice for me.

(I worry sometimes, because when I have to start thesis work in a year (12-14 pieces over the course of a semester), what the actual hell am I gonna do when it has to be actually good??  Hahaha.  D8 )

What I love to see is really based on whatever the artist can do well, so that varies.  I just like stuff that’s well-made. :D

Oh yeah, I’m with you— I friggin love black and white comics (+ accent color) and think they’re totally beautiful.  For my TTX comic I do it because I want the color accent to highlight action, balance out the page composition, and keep the tone a little bit somber.  There’s definitely a nod to the fact that red and green are opposite each other on the color wheel, too.

Looked at the art tutorial tag for the first time.

Please, guys.  Promise you won’t endeavor to “hide” bad forms with shading. 8|  I can’t believe I just read that in a tut (which is why I think most are dumb).

Form is king.

I mean, it’s totally different if you do it on accident or are just done with this damn drawing and need to move on with your life, but don’t NOTICE IT, and be like, “hey man this drawing sucks let’s blast it with excessive modeling ‘cause that’ll totally work.”  It won’t work. D8

Okay, Back to Front is a traditional practice that’s made for opaque mediums (like acrylic paint, oil paint, sometimes gouache).  It’s the technique/concept that I use even digitally (which is why I’m more comfortable using one layer).  I’m not as purist about it as I used to be, though, because I mix my techniques.

Could you please do a really quick step by step set of drawings on how you draw your eyes please? They're really good, and I can never get mine right, which is bad because they ruin the piece if they aren't good :/ I never know how to fill the eye in either, with the pupil and light detail.. Thank you :D

Sure. 8)  BTW, I’m gonna use “you” in the general sense— not you in particular.  Not targeting you or anything. :)

First of all, let’s get this out of the way, though: When somebody asks me for something art-based, “really quick,” it is the first indication that they don’t know enough and need help.  And that’s fine!  Just be aware of this.  There aren’t many things about learning art (or most things) that come “really quick,” which is why it’s not quick to talk about, unless we’re all in a hurry to suck at it.

I know other people can make step by steps on how they draw certain things, but I can’t.  I don’t always draw eyes the same way.  Not all lighting/angle/narrative situations are the same.  Because of that I have a problem with step by step art tutorials in general (ignoring exceptions).  They teach people to copy things as symbols, without really thinking about the fact that you’re drawing objects that interact with other objects.  If you copy a symbol from a step by step, your learning is limited, you’re usually at the mercy of whatever angles the tutorial gives you, and you don’t know how to change a pose or vary your art.  Booooooring! 

Look, all I’m saying is that it’s a crappy feeling when all of a sudden you want to draw your OTP kissing and you’re not sure how to draw in 3/4 view or profile, or if you’ve gotta turn someone’s head up at an angle, etc. (because IMO the hotter kissing is when they start turning their heads and really getting into it), so boooo~

Sorry if none of this is what anyone wants to hear, but hey— ask me how I do a thing, and I’m gonna tell you how I learned it, no bullshit.  Don’t worry, don’t be intimidated, and know you can always have drawing skills if you’re willing to put the work in.  I don’t care who you are, that’s how it always works. 8)  That being said, let’s talk about eyes:

On fanart, taking criticism, and for aspiring art students (@ the end)

ben-dude replied to your photoset“Last assignment for one class is to make a zine about our obsessions…”
whoa, it looks amazing! :D extra points for “my boyfriend is a superhero in bed” omg
Ha ha ha, thank you!  Wish I could have cleaned the original up more for printing but no time.  I sorta think some people will judge me so hard for doing all the fanart in that book but fuckit, we’re gonna go through the illustration program together, the truth of what happens in my spare time has to come out at some point. 8);;;;;
pg-chan replied to your photoset“Last assignment for one class is to make a zine about our obsessions…”
I HOPE YOU PRINTED ANOTHER COPY FOR ME D:<
I DON’T KNOW WHO WOULD EVEN WANT COPIES OF THIS, OMG D8
It’s all stuff anyone who’s seen this blog has seen before (dude, there are even snippets of my L’Arc concert reviews 8D;; ) but TELL ME WHICH COLOR YOU’D LIKE.  (Yo but FYI my classmates don’t get purple, so that’s a limited edition color if you choose it?  Haha, TBH I just wanted to horde it all for another project even though there’s PLENTY of paper in all colors. 8) )
Okay, so this is sorta embarrassing— the dude at Kinko’s who was doing my printing was flipping through the PDF and just went, “… …Is that Raven?”  and then he noticed I was wearing a Nightwing shirt and went, “Yup, sure is.  Awesome shirt, BTW.”  Oh, oh, and then when I picked up my prints he talked about how much he loved the Starfire/Raven drawings and I felt sorta… outed? It’s weird facing people in public who know what that stuff is, and he was asking me what these prints were even for, and the I had to go into that explanation, oh dear. 
 
Oh, yeah—
To aspiring art students: turning in fanart at art school is risky as fuck.  If there is a question in your gut about submitting it, or a weakness in the work, even a little, even if it’s unrelated to the fact that the work is fanart, don’t do it.  Your normal work has to be good, so your fanart has to be twice as good to stand amongst the other work, because it is likely to be under double scrutiny. 
Just FYI I’ve never done this in school before this semester, in my entire life as an art student and that even counts high school.  I submitted this Starfire drawing along with my other work during my review this semester, and the only reason they didn’t rip me in half was because it was technically competent.  Even though I had other digital work in my portfolio, because learning digital work is part of our program and I’m in a Digital Tools class, despite all that the instructor playing “bad cop” during our reviews zeroed in on that and used it to criticize, because it was fanart first.  She wasn’t wrong about what she said (“It’s good, but if this had marks that looked like your ink wash work it would be so much more interesting”), either.  Also, when you get criticized harshly, don’t take it personally.  I love my program and it has great instructors, but that doesn’t protect me from certain things that are institutionally stigmatized, such as digital work, and fanart, to varying degrees, based on the instructor.  
Also, getting criticism, especially from someone with that amount of skill, is a gift.  Let me repeat: IT IS A GIFT.  Somebody thought about your work, which is sometimes a pain in the butt, and told you how it could be better.  Whatever tone they use, even if they sorta hate you, or even if they love you, doesn’t change how valuable that information is.
(The instructor for this zine project, other than being an adorable fucking human being is a D&D/sci-fi nerd, though, and the focus of our project isn’t the actual quality of the work itself but to demonstrate competence in using InDesign and being able to self-publish our own little books, and he mentioned a previous student’s zine about Batman before, so I judged it to be safe, but it’s also because I’ve spent a semester proving I can execute work with higher concepts.)

Wow

The highest percentage of people who remove my artist comments are people who reblog my non-Teen Titans pictures.

Seriously, man, literally every piece of fanart on this blog that’s not TT just has comments removed before some flood of reblogs. RUUUUUUUDE. It’s like you don’t know this concept; y’all bunch of basic-ass bitches.
