Up until now he hadn’t been paying attention to whatever was going on in the entertainment projector screen; he’d figured it would have been a classic movie such as “In which an unsuccessful tealblood movie scripterminator is wrapped into the delusions of a previously celebrated but since forgotten violetblooded actormentress, and in order to preserve his own life indulges her red advances as well as her belief in a great comeback movie which he’s expected to script. Includes the whimsical decay of one pet screech-ape, no less than 50 accounts of delusions of grandeur, 45 unreciprocated red advances, 10 of which vacillated to black, the increasing girth of a celebrated director played in a fictional trolliverse, 20 accounts of illicit drug use, no less than 5 movies-within-a-movie, eight hundred deaths, thirty of which are of legislacerators, two exploded spaceships and widespread destruction of movie-making equipment”. Intriguing but well-known, and hard to dislike.

But when he looked at the screen he did not recognize what he saw, even though the flute melody felt familiar— vaguely but insistently so, like a buried memory.

[just jotting down an idea in case i want to draw it for realsies later]

boys you can’t read it with your hands in the way like that
you’re not reading are you

ok looking at this in the daytime — is bel’s arm too long or are galley’s arms too short?
i have such a hard time with anatomy when i’m not doing a realistic style. :P

I’d say Gally’s are a little short? A trick I use is, regardless of style, to make the elbow aaaaaaalmost level with the top of the hipbone (if the character’s meant to be anatomically graceful. If gangly or stubby adjust accordingly). Like really close, but not there yet. 
It might take a lot of looking at your drawings the next morning to figure out if it works for you, though.

truthfully i think kankris got more of a temper than karkat just saying he scares me

character development

What a beautiful character arc.

C’mon, Equius was asking to hug Karkat like they were “bros”. Not being touched was pretty much a matter of self-preservation. He was remarkably calm about it, when the average person in his position would probably go “NO! NO! WAIT! STEP BACK! Oh okay you haven’t moved NO! YOU’RE SWEATY AND YOU’LL BREAK ME IN HALF!”

Meanwhile Kankri was just being a whiny baby about mommy wiping sauce off the corner of his mouth where his fellow kindergarteners could see it and possibly go “neener”.

Context is everything.
