how are you drawing eyes? like expressive eyes?
IIII…. can’t explain things very well, but, um!
Eyebrows are a huge part of what makes the eyes expressive! See also: eye width / size of pupils / shadows and lighting / lines around the eyes. They help emphasize particular expressions as well.

here’s a radical thought: how about when a character is bi it’s actually explicitly said that they’re bi rather than tiptoeing around the subject as if we don’t all fucking know that they. are. bi.
Have problems drawing bodies? This might help!!!
Because I’ve been dealing with some really nasty art block, my friend introduced me to this awesome website that gives a bunch of reference photos on a time limit you set so you can practice gesture and things like that. AND It’s completely free (and an awesome alternative, at least temporarily, to that figure drawing class I wanted to do this semester!)
It has options for helping you build skill in drawing figures, animals, hands/feet, and faces/facial expressions. It even has a setting to show you only “decent” models incase you want to practice with your parents or young impressionable family members in the room.
There are also a lot of articles about tips you can use to help enhance your ability to learn and grow in drawing. Its an awesome site! You should all give it a try!

#the more you know
steve “led a one man mission behind heavily guarded enemy lines in another fucking country just to save someone who might be alive if the stars are aligned correctly, fights guys who talk to loud in a movie” rogers is not steve “we have to follow orders, theres only one god ma’am” rogers
So I just hallucinated the part where he broke into a restricted lab to collect evidence proving Fury actually was keeping secrets, then?
Also the way you’re using Steve’s religion to make a point is really gross.
A thousand people already commented on this, but I just wanted to add that Steve’s line in the Avengers about “there’s only one God, ma’am, and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t dress like that” was brilliant because 1) it’s funny, 2) it’s in character, especially for someone who’s literally two weeks out of 1945, and 3) it’s reaffirming to people with religious beliefs (not just Christians) that a major movie character asks for his religion to be taken seriously.
See, as a Scandinavian out of Norse tradition, I always had a tiny, microscopic issue with the description of Marvel Asgardians as “gods”—they’re not, they’re just very advanced aliens (Clarke’s third law: Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic—or divine intervention). Saying Marvel’s versions of Thor and Loki are gods is basically saying there are no god(s), which is obviously hurtful to religious people.
So I don’t see how Steve’s “hey, you wanna show some respect?” in CA:FA is any different from “there’s only one God, ma’am, and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t dress like that” in The Avengers—in both situations, he’s reacting to what he perceives as a lack of respect towards some deeply-held personal values.
Also, I don’t get the “we have to follow orders,” because Steve commandeered a Quinjet and when the pilot protested that “you guys aren’t authorised to be in here,” Steve told him, “son, just don’t.” Which is actually the opposite of following orders. So.
these photos were taken by mohammed salem and klaus thymann (click pic), showing the rise of parkour in gaza’s shati and khan yunis refugee camps. unemployment in the camps is high, and with little to do and limited resources, some have turned to parkour as a means of escape.
as abdullah enshasy, who cofounded gaza parkour team with mohammed aljkhbeer, explains, “i have witnessed war, invasion and killing. when i was a kid and i saw these things, blood and injuries, i didn’t know what it all meant.”
adds aljkhbeer, "there is a big relationship between parkour and barriers that we’re surrounded by in the gaza strip. there’s the blockade, walls are everywhere. …parkour gives us a sense of freedom and allows us to endure these conditions without getting deeply depressed.”
for a sport that is literally about overcoming obstacles and living beyond imposed physical restraints, parkour has perhaps even greater resonance in the narrow, politically and militarily confined gaza strip, which is home to a densely boxed in population of 1.7 million palestinians.
but enshasy notes, “at first people didn’t accept us. they would say, ‘you jump like monkeys and you climb buildings like thieves’.” but as their facebook page explains, parkour is about breaking from conventional paths in life and finding your own.
