My name is Emma, and this is my blog where I stick both my art and other random stuff. I'm a beginning artist though, so my art isn't the best. I also am a fan of Homestuck, Zelda, the Wheel of Time series, dragons, the various kinds of 'taurs, and really anything else consider fantasy. I take (appropriate) requests, because it's good for practice. I hope you enjoy whatever you may stumble across!
Picture Description: So according to Tolkien canon, female dwarves weren’t altogether that much different from the males, and other races confused the two genders often… most cited reason being facial hair that dwarves of all ages and genders exhibited across the board. Now if you ask me, simply drawing a bearded lady will get you… a bearded lady. I figured I needed to dig deeper, so I actually modified their body proportions to be more masculine - gave them wider shoulders and narrower hips. My sketches turned out to be a lot more exaggerated than the final product here, mostly because I kept scaling back when painting the daughter, fearing she may look too masculine. I may have to experiment with pushing it more in the future.
All that said, I had an idea of painting a dwarf woman, which turned into this - a daughter bringing in a big find from the mines for her mother to inspect. The latter has been a miner herself, obviously, but at some point I suppose had to rear children, and abandon her mining career.
What Would You Do?: A transgender woman is insulted by a man at a diner. This is a really great segment they did where a trans woman, played by a real trans woman, is insulted and ridiculed by a man (played by an actor, of course) while she serves him at a diner. You’d be surprised at how many people butted in to defend her.
I’m a 17 year old white guy living in middle class America. I’ve never exactly been a supporter of feminism because that kind of thing has never really affected me personally. I don’t notice it and I don’t care about it. But in nine minutes this video has made what is truly a serious problem extremely apparent. Those “why I need feminism” posts or those slut-shaming or rape culture campaigns never convince me of anything. But this video actually did I think.
how are people still blogging about regular stuff like that picture of jennifer lawrence will be there i feel like there’s more pressing matters to attend to right now like how can you care about a gifset when there’s potential…
