Molly and Mary decide to leave the boys behind and go on their own adventures.
Also this is my theory about how Molly helped Sherlock.  She can totally fly as long as she’s wearing a gigantic bow.
(This is way overdue but work got too nutty ^^;)

*giggles* I’m gonna die with all this cuteness!

And now I’m picturing a “Flying Nun” Sherlock AU with Molly in the Sally Field title role…

I may have reblogged this before. I do not care, because it is awesome.

These are the cutest things omg.

"Tarun Tahiliani founded his design studio in 1990. His distinctive signature has since evolved as a fusion of textile detail, refined luxury, and meticulous tailoring. The Tarun Tahiliani Design Studio creates couture, diffusion, prêt-a-porte and accessory lines, which are Indian in their sensibility, yet international in their appeal. The rich heritage of the subcontinent is reinvented as contemporary high fashion through the genius of Indian craftsmanship and the finest textiles; along with Italian pattern cutting and construction and new technologies such as digital textile printing. His unique combination of historical opulence and contemporary chic also transcend to couture.” [source]

Hey, age anon again. I'm not saying that there's an age limit. Still, the fandom that you're interacting with is mostly consisting of young, /very/ young teenagers. The Sherlock fandom is a lot of 12-18 year olds. I'm not saying that you can't make friends here. It just has to be acknowledged that a lot of the people you interact with can be very young and/ or immature. It makes me uncomfortable when you get into fights with 14 year olds or criticize 15 year olds for 'queer fetishizing', (c) from Anonymous

petratodd:

(c) or saying misogynistic things when they probably don’t know what those terms even mean. It just strikes me as odd. I know you can have interests at your age, but maybe you need to be aware of who you’re dealing with. I myself am in my late teens and it just makes me uncomfortable when I see you arguing with people I follow that I know are at a completely different emotional and mental developmental stage of life to, you know, a 30 something year old.

Age anon: Well, yeah it’s serious. Because the viewership starts that young. Of course there’s nothing wrong with enjoying the show and blogging about it as an adult. A lot of the adults I know love the show. That’s fine. But the fact is that the show is accessible and frequently watched by a younger audience. 10+. The majority of fandom would be that young. You go on any tag on tumblr and you get young kids excitedly posting about how much they LURRRVEE SHERLOWK HE’S SO CUTE XD (c)
(c) I found it kind of aggravating so that’s why I’ve since abandoned fandom but it needs to be acknowledged that most people on this website who love this show aren’t your age. Most of your followers aren’t your age. Don’t expect them to be on your level with everything.
You have no idea how old the fandom I interact with is. You don’t know how many people I’m following, or how many followers I have, or how old any of these people are. So given that you know none of these things, the only conclusion I can draw is that you think people my age shouldn’t be involved in the tumblr fandom, period. Which is pretty silly.
Your assessment of the Sherlock fandom is hilariously off, to the point where I’m wondering if you’re a troll. Sherlock Holmes has been around for over a hundred years, with people growing up loving the stories and various TV and movie versions. A chunk of that fandom migrated to tumblr and participates in the BBC Sherlock too. Do people need to sound off their ages to verify to you that young teens are not the majority of the fandom? You didn’t invent the Sherlock Holmes fandom.

Petra brings up several important points with this: tumblr has a age minimum for a reason. It’s not excluding a part of Fandom but rather protecting children from what they could be exposed to here.
Additionally, it’s a disservice to younger people to let them carry on with unacceptable behavoirs. The right to self expression does not exempt you from being questioned, no matter your age.
If you think your youth entitles you to be coddled by the “older ones” in fandom, the shattering of that illusion will be painful.

Tuesday Tips - Life Drawing Exercise: CONTOUR LINEOne of the most straight forward tip I have about Life Drawing. It kind of goes against what most life drawing instructors will tell you. The first thing you’ll hear is “Draw from the inside.” A contour line on a figure drawing is about the most superficial way to approach it BUT, it will help you tremendously at finding a clear silhouette. By the way, no one says you can’t slightly alter the silhouette you are looking at. If there’s a way to make it clearer or make a better statement, go for it. Drawing is about making decisions, not just copying what you’re seeing. The same way other techniques will help understand how the body functions, using a contour line as an exercise will help you find proportions, angles of the body and general appeal in your posing.Normand

WIP of the piece I just posted. I used a lot of lasso tool and a couple brushes that let me get crevices and streaks really well. :) Backgorund sky took me the least amount of time, but I have feels about clouds and it shows. I can paint them pretty fast. 
Form (silhouette of everything that ISN’T sky)
Gradients of sky and FG
Line Sketch and 10 min warmup
Blockin of major forms using lasso tool
Clipping mask detail on the major forms
brush in lines
Sponge on grit (if necessary)
Shade and highlight
Paintover final details, minor corrections
