last month i started a multi-part guide on drawing backgrounds for beginners (or any artist anxious about getting started!). i took some people's questions on twitter about things they struggle with most regarding backgrounds and i'm using those to write up this guide, so hopefully your burning questions about backgrounds are answered here!

  • how do perspective lines work?

  • how do you decide what to put in a character's room?

  • how do you make your backgrounds less flat?

all that and more is answered here!

these guides are free to read and will stay free to read. if you find them helpful consider supporting me on patreon or ko-fi if you like! i post free guides to my patreon regularly and bonus content for patrons 😊

Wander where they dare not tread

Far outside of culture’s rule

No care have you for others dread

Their expectations far too cruel

Abandon here the precut mould

Explore beyond the mortal ken

Secrets shared, whispers old

Power beyond might of men

Weapons naught, against the form

Of stolen armour, built from pain

No wish have you to just conform

Instead exist as normal’s bane

In the void, a strange embrace

No rules, no law, be truly you

Where the strange is commonplace

And true life starts anew


Carnival of Aros - May 2020

uncannyaro -

Carnival of Aros is back, and so am I! (kinda).

It's been a rough little while, for pretty much the whole world, and there's been so many changes in my life on top of the current events that I ghosted social media for a long while to try and recharge myself.

It looks like Carnival of Aros did a similar thing, and now they've resurfaced with the theme of DIY for May. You can find more information here, but the given prompts this month include:

  • Write up a tutorial, recipe, lesson plan, or other set of instructions that can help others DIY something (especially if you have suggestions for we how to work in some aro pride symbols somewhere!)

  • Talk about some of your favorite hobbies or hobby communities – does being aro affect your relationship with these at all?

  • Share stories or pictures of your favorite DIY aro pride swag projects

  • Explain your own “DIY” life strategies for living without traditional romantic relationships, if that’s something that affects you

  • Or, talk about your strategies for “DIY-ing” new relationship styles when the standard scripts for things like “friend” or “girlfriend” or “partner” just don’t fit quite right.

  • Experiment with branching out from standard blog format and try your hand at an aro zine, collage, or other art piece

With Pride coming up in June for many places, now's the time to DIY yourself some aro pride gear, because obviously we can never have enough of that!

As always, submissions can be submitted to the host, this month the OG Carnival blog itself.

To people who are desperately asking for fundz/donations on wf/tumblr...

kidd -

use these reddit subs instead!!

Hate Reddit if you want, but using these subs are your best chance. People gather in these subs because they have charity to spare: /r/Assistance /r/legaladvice /r/RandomKindness /r/Charity /r/care /r/Random_Acts_Of_Pizza /r/Food_Pantry https://www.reddit.com/r/RandomActsOfPetFood/ https://www.reddit.com/r/RandomActsOfChristmas/ https://www.reddit.com/r/almosthomeless/ https://www.reddit.com/r/homeless

/r/freelance /r/povertyfinance /r/thrifty /r/borrow /r/gofundme

/r/depression /r/familysupport /r/transitions

I never see anyone actually getting any significant donations on tumblr/wf and to be honest, tumblr/wf is the worst place to ask for assistance. people beg for help, reblog the same post over and over, the same types of posts over and over, to no avail, when people are waiting to help you on a different part of the web.

go to where the help is


I found an amazing resource on twitter yesterday! This is a map of informed consent hrt clinics in the United States. Meaning no therapist note required and no "real life test", they provide hormone treatment as long as you know the risks and consent (unfortunately age guidelines and parental consent are likely still a concern). The info is community sourced and less than 3 years old. Some things may be inaccurate, but the person who created it is still working to update and refine it. Please share if you can!
