Hi! I'm Maria, and this is my collection of whatnots. Feel free to say hi! : )

None of the pictures are mine, unless stated.
A few notes: sometimes NSFW, I post a lot (Seriously- I do), I'm crappy at tagging things, but I'm trying to do better (let me know if you have a trigger or anything that you need tagged and I'll try my best ), and I won't follow you back just because you follow me.





Fun Fact: None of the actors but Gene Wilder knew that the tunnel scene was coming. Like, they had the lines and stuff, but they thought it was just a boat ride. And when the lights came on and he started singing their terror was real

This happened a lot throughout the movie. Which is one of the reasons it’s such a great film. The directors did the same thing when they all saw the inside of the Factory for the first time. They wanted to show the face of pure imagination. To capture it all.

Same thing with the scene where he comes out of the factory to greet them.  None of them had gotten to meet Gene beforehand, so when he came out all hobbled on the cane and they had these confused looks on their faces and look actually concerned when he starts to tumble forward?  That’s all legit.  This whole movie was successful because it fucked with everyone who wasn’t Gene Wilder.

You guys know the sad Charlie reaction pic I use so much? That’s another ad lib scene. In rehearsals, gene was a lot calmer, but when they were actually filming he exploded on Peter ostrum (Charlie). That sad expression is genuine. And tht’s what it’s basically my favorite reaction picture ever.

The reason he came out limping and then rolled forward was so that from that point forward nobody could tell if he was lying or telling the truth.

literally none of this movie was scripted they just found a group of people and had them improvise an entire movie as cameras were rolling gene wilder doesn’t even exist you’re still dreaming

…Near the village of Braachaat, outside Antwerp, Belgium. The last photo shows a grotto-like cave under the mansion that may have been used as a bar in the past.

Practical wings created as a starting point for the CGI ones on Maleficent! 

I want to try and create a pair of wings of this size (personal project ;) ) These photos are a great inspiration!

Now, videogames haven’t made me violent, but they have made me feel like I’m supposed to pick this up.

Anonymous asked: Do you get frustrated with your art sometimes? Like, something isn't turning out like you imagined it in your head, or you have a shitty drawing day in general? Do you try to draw your way through it or sit it out? ( ?´_ゝ`)



oh yeeaahhhh. this doesnt happen to me as often as it used to, but i think all artists wrestle w it at some point or another !! i dont have a consistent method for dealing w it because the causes can be so varied and thus the solutions arent all the same, but here r a few methods i use

  • do things in a way you arent used to (like if u usually do lineart, try lineless panting. if yours super focused on colors and details, do black and white silhouettes, etc)
  • completely fuck up your brush settings and just work with it, no matter how shitty it is. this simulates trying a new medium if you dont have access to one irl, and can break you out of a rut
  • take a fuckin break. sometimes this is just the answer. give up completely. maybe itll be a month before you can get back on the horse, but dont worry, youll get back when youre good and fucking ready. let it happen.
  • reading/writing…i find that if i overwork my right brain (or perception skills) my eyes-hands feedback slows down and i have to stop. but switching to a left brained activity like reading or writing can rest your right brain for efficiently and knock you out of a loop (and you can still be creative and not feel all pent up!!)
  • exercises. straight up drawing exercises. flex ur brain. contour drawings can be a great way to get in your art practice for the day without spending a lot of time being disappointed with a creative project
  • while not drawing, look at things from the contour-drawing type perspective. seriously, just LOOKING at shit can improve your ability to draw. routinely reduce everything you see not to what it is, but to lights and dark sand colors working together to create an image. observe as much detail as possible. this will flex your right brain w no real paper-pencil work necessary
  • mind over matter. sit down and power through it. draw and draw until you HAVE to come up with new ideas. this method is painful, but works well for some people
  • talk to other artists !! do an art trade, a style swap, something that makes you step briefly into someone elses perspective

anyway yeah that sort of thing is rough but !! u can def overcome it

that was actually a thing I enjoyed about Pacific Rim a lot

how there were characters who had important jobs who had tattoos and dyed hair. I liked this little detail because after all it’s set in the future where it’s our generation running things, and they doesn’t judge a person less skilled because they have tattoos or dyed hair
