I usually don’t reblog these, but I feel like some of my followers could probably use the reassurance. I definitely have these kinds of thoughts sometimes.
so i’m not crazy for randomly thinking such thoughts? what a relief!
Edgar Allan Poe had a name for it too: The Imp of the Perverse. he compared the impulses to a demon that urges people to do the wrong thing simply because it can be done
The compulsion to jump from high places is called “l’appel du vide" in French. The call of the void. I think it’s specific to that one instance, but I think it’s a cool phrase for this phenomenon in general.
I think about this with random sharp objects laying around, too. “What if I just jammed this into my eye or throat right now? … oh god WHAT.” Just… fucking christ, brain. Don’t.
Reblogging this again because most people don’t/never know how normal these thoughts are, and that can be a major source of stress. It’s okay. You’re okay. Just, you know, don’t follow through on that shit.
As normal as these thoughts are OCCASIONALLY, if you are experiencing such thoughts in a high volume/consistently, then there’s probably something that you need to look into with a professional psychologist. Especially when the thoughts become particularly violent or self-destructive, they can be precursors to suicidal ideation and are often a sign of severe depression, and can also be a result of anxiety and paranoia.
Hey guys! This book is going to be awesome and you should definitely check out this kickstarter. This project has been REALLY COOL to contribute to and these are the biggest up and coming names in the industry. You are going to want to get your hands on this!
Bat/Scorpian spirit demon thingy. WIP rough animation for one of the generic baddies of the game. It’s on 8s and I kinda like the wing movement, but the tail is too quick. I’ll try it on 12s and/or shorten the tail movement.
It’s on 2s at the moment and I’m not sure but, if it’s for a moving game, I’m thinking everything needs to be on 1s because of the camera movement. Still trying to figure animation for games out.
Once i lock down this guys face design it’ll be onto clean up and colour. I’ll post some of the designs soon.
Super cool animation and the character design is really neat. It looks very smooth, even for a rough.
I’ve gone to a con or two before and have always wanted to cosplay, but I don’t…for the exact reason why the woman in this post goes through. Mostly I fear of being thought of as “too large” or being made fun of, to cosplay as someone sexy or any of my favorite geeky characters that I love. It’s body-shaming and it happens in every world/culture.
