I’ve said this before and I’ll point it out again -
Menstruation is caused by change in hormonal levels to stop the creation of a uterine lining and encourage the body to flush the lining out. The body does this by lowering estrogen levels and raising testosterone.
Or, to put it more plainly “That time of the month” is when female hormones most closely resemble male hormones. So if (cis) women aren’t suited to office at “That time of the month” then (cis) men are NEVER suited to office.
If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time.
And, on a final note, post-menopausal (cis) women are the most hormonally stable of all human demographics. They have fewer hormonal fluctuations of anyone, meaning older women like Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren would theoretically be among the least likely candidates to make an irrational decision due to hormonal fluctuations, and if we were basing our leadership decisions on hormone levels, then only women over fifty should ever be allowed to hold office."
"If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time. "
i’ve reblogged this before, but after watching “last comic standing” with my boyfriend and hearing way more period jokes than i thought would pass in 2014, gonna just put it out there again.
chiefbrownbottom said: how do you go about structuring your drawings? i have a style but i don't know how to continue with different angles for my characters. i want to start animating soon and i think my drawings could really benefit from a smooth timeline.
hi! it’s all just shapes, just think about everything as a simple shape. a complex character is made up of more shapes stuck together. easy peasy! (is it..)
pick up some clay
make your characters
you could use these clay babies as reference, but it’s more about exercising your brain to think about how things are built 3-dimensionally
the fastest/most brutal way to get good at drawing is to draw… a comic.
drawing from life
draw the same object from 5 points of view
draw a human from 5 points of view
here are some artists that i think of when i think “3-dimensional characters”

Going on right now in Ferguson: Police are raiding a church that has been stocked with medical supplies, food, and tear gas recovery kits for community members engaging in protests. This cannot be allowed to continue.
Stand up, speak out.
Ferguson from my TL- August 18 (2/3)
Ways you can help:
Remember this when you read reports of people ‘looting’ McDonalds tomorrow
Darren Wilson, the officer who murdered Mike Brown, has raised over $11,000 from supporters in less than a day.
This is unacceptable.
Tonight in Ferguson, Mo. Even CNN is calling out police brutality.
We are watching history unfold. Do not stand down. Spread the word.
No justice, no peace.
