Because dancing baby Groot is cute
So Blackwall is confirmed as not a romance option? Okay, a little sad, but acceptable.

ONCE AGAIN YOU’VE ELUDED ME, HOT BEARDED MAN OF MY DREAMS
*shakes fists into the sky*
This has been something that has been bothering me for the past few years, every time I encounter someone who’s just started as an artist, they put themselves down because they’re intimidated by artists who are more experienced. Intimidation is something that every artist has (or will) encounter in their lives, and they need to pull through that fear in order to grow as an artist. Take that intimidation and be inspired about it. What makes it intimidating? What makes their work look so unique? That’s where your learning opportunistic moments will occur, you find those reasons and you create something new out of all that you’ve learned!
I believe that anyone, ANYONE, can become an artist. It takes dedication and determination, but I promise you that drawing is one of the most rewarding art forms I’ve ever experienced. You will always learn something new with it, therefore, the fun never stops!
Its relevant to many aspiring artists.
Wow. This is incredibly relevant.
So, I always thought that inspiration and intimidation is the difference between those who give up in art and those who keep going. We all get discouraged sometimes but great art isn’t (or shouldn’t be) demoralizing. Great art should act as an impetus. It should be that thing we aim for, not be discouraged by. Art is like everything else and while some may have more inherent ‘talent’ than others, you only improve by working at it and refining your skill. And working at it. Consistently. Persistently.
Everyone starts at the same point, everyone has to work their way up one step — or drawing — at a time. It’s worth it, so worth it for the breakthrough moments, the moments where you finally understand how to do that thing that has been driving you to frustration for months. IF YOU DRAW AT ALL YOU KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT. This is the best feeling in the world for an artist, when you have hit a plateau, become stuck there for a while but eventually find that yes, you can climb higher still.
Imagine the mabari of the Warden who makes the ultimate sacrifice. He sits on the road and looks up at Fort Drakon while lights crack from the very top. A hush falls over the mass of people—every soldier of every army—as the remaining Darkspawn retreat.
The light breaks into particles, floating into the clearing sky. Once it’s registered that the Archdemon is dead, there’s cheering, laughing, crying, hysterics. But the hound dog is still; only a tiny whimper leaves his jowls as his legs grow weary. He folds his legs and tucks his head as he lies down, but does not leave that spot on the road by the tower.
She’s coming back, I know she is. I’ll wait until she gets here. If I leave, she might miss me.
Since I hit another milestone of 500 followers (???? how???), I thought I’d make another follow forever! You all have been so wonderful and kind to me here (so much more than I expected), it’s about time I gave the same kindness back. :D
