HARRY POTTER FANS WATCH THIS
HOLY SHIT IT IS VERY VERY VERY VERY COOL
Oh my gosh this is legit one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen in my life! This is SO COOL, seriously just click on it, oh my gosh.
This is how I imagined wizard duels I actually like this better than the duels in the movie because there are spells that actually do things other than make stuff explode.If I didn’t know better I would have thought that this was professionally made, WOW. <3
THIS IS SO FUCKING COOL EVERYONE WATCH THIS NOW
This is one of the reasons I’m insanely jealous of people who will be alive when HP is out of copyright and can legally release and profit from making all the cool Potter-verse stories that fans come up with, without having to worry about Warner Bros suing them.
if youre having a bad day just watch this
!!!!!! JESUS DEAR LORD!! Saxophone dual!!!

This is an amazing collection. I think what excites me so much about it, apart from the PDAs which indicate these are clearly romantic relationships and not just friendships, is the women of colour who are included. No 2 is even an inter-racial couple!
To add to this relationships such as these were able to be visible because during this era women were considered sex-less, that is that they did not have sex, so they could only have innocently amorous relationships with other women. In addition, in the late Victorian/early Edwardian era there was a large lesbian subculture where women had openly butch/femme relationships where one partner would often pass as a male and would accompany the other woman in public and be her escort to events and the like. Within that culture were femme/femme relationships, and sometimes butch/butch relationships. This practice was surprisingly popular among the higher class, where it was seen as entertainment for the women involved by the outside world. This culture was also accompanied by theatrical instances of cross-dressing lesbians who often became very famous. On the more extreme side of the culture were groups of high class women who had large balls that essentially would boil down to lavish orgies.
For the middle class, however, it was very easy for women to be in such relationships with little questioning as women were encouraged to live together as living with a male who was not family was immoral, and those who chose to be ‘spinsters’ often lived with a close friend. Often times in these situations the women would be in a relationship, where in some cases one partner would cross-dress though that was not always the case. When women lived together, it was rarely seen as questionable if the two became very close, and women were encouraged to have these sorts of relationships.

What to put in a sketchbook for beginners
Your sketchbook is a secret place
A sketchbook is very useful for everyone, especially for artists, students and kids. It boosts your creativity. To achieve that, use your sketchbook like a journal; make it a secret place. It’s very important to work freely inside it. Make sure you carry it everywhere.

- glue or stickers
- foldback clips, paper clips, staples
- different kinds of other paper
- sticky notes
How to start a new sketchbook:
- start now
- make a personal cover
- don’t start at page one
- destroy it’s beauty for example with a crappy drawing
- or use the following tips
Some topics for your sketchbook:

Things you can do in your sketchbook:
OH MY GOD
But have you been on CarpetsFirAirports.com?
Sometimes you just gotta get gussied up.
Pretty sure this is why my wife has a pair of super sharp antique brass scissors, right?
Anne educates us in facial hair using the medium of paper and it’s awesome.
You ever notice that sometimes your drawings are all facing to the left/right? I try to vary up the poses, but in the end I realize most of them are basically 3/4 views aimed towards the side. You start to realize that there’s only so many ways you can draw something before you feel that you’ve drawn them “facing that way” already.
Even if you drew really dynamic angles, you’d probably get critical of yourself and think, “Guh, I’ve already drawn them from behind at a low-angle…”
Thanks to everyone who came out to CTNx this weekend! Ed and I had a blast meeting you all! We’re finally releasing the short that we premiered over the weekend at the expo.
This minute-and-a-half fantasy western is a 2D animated passion project that Ed Skudder and I crafted over our free nights and weekends for the past 2-3 months.
We both split the work 50/50 from background painting to rough animation to clean up and everything between, however Ed did the music and compositing and I headed up the design. As of right now, this short is it, but hopefully one day we can expand on the world!
Thanks for watching! We’ll be releasing behind the scenes stuff next!
