When you’re drawing hands, use fingernails to show perspective, orientation, and form of the fingers. Don’t worry about the literal shape of the nail, unless it’s an important element of your character. 

    A common mistake is to draw fingernails flat. They’re actually rounded. They follow that cylindrical top plane of the rest of the finger. The nail explains if the finger is coming towards or moving away from the viewer in space, and how much. A nail acts as a natural cross-contour line. Its left-to-right angle also explains how the finger is rotated. If you ever draw a finger that just looks off somehow, try redrawing the fingernail. It might fix your problem.

    It’s a good habit to compare the orientation of the thumb’s nail to the rest of the fingers, since the thumb actually faces away from the other fingers. It’s a common mistake to draw the thumb parallel to the others and flatten out the whole hand. As the thumb reaches across the palm to grab something, it rotates to face the opposite angle of the fingers.

    Good morning! I’m salty.

    I think we, as a general community, need to start taking this little moment more seriously.

    This, right here? This is asking for consent. It’s a legal necessity, yes, but it is also you, the reader, actively consenting to see adult content; and in doing so, saying that you are of an age to see it, and that you’re emotionally capable of handling it.

    You find the content you find behind this warning disgusting, horrifying, upsetting, triggering? You consented. You said you could handle it, and you were able to back out at any time. You take responsibility for yourself when you click through this, and so long as the creator used warnings and tags correctly, you bear full responsibility for its impact on you.

    “Children are going to lie about their age” is probably true, but that’s the problem of them and the people who are responsible for them, not the people that they lie to.

    If you’re not prepared to see adult content, created by and for adults, don’t fucking click through this. And if you do, for all that’s holy, don’t blame anyone else for it.

     What this means, to my understanding, is this blog will keep existing, but all my NSFW posts will turn to PRIVATE aka only viewable by me. You won’t be able to search for this blog or my posts most likely and anyone under 18 won’t be able to see it (the latter isn’t a change). I’ll still be able to post and reblog SFW content (supposedly).

    IDEALLY I’ll be able to post previews/censored/cropped art here to alert you guys to the full pieces that’ll be on Twitter, but with how hilarious the flagging system has been so far...we’ll see if this blog (or site as a whole) makes it lol. In case it doesn’t cause there’s just far too many female presenting nipples here (or, y’know, dicks) I listed most all the places you can find me currently above, and any additions to come will be mentioned in those places.

    Lastly, in case this hellsite is wiped from the face of the earth, I just want to thank all of you for following me here since I meant to ages ago :’) It’s been a Journey™️ and nearly 10.5k of you have stayed along for the ride which I’m so humbly grateful for. Thanks so much for your patience with me when I haven’t been active here, I’ve had some hiccups irl and have found it a little easier to update things on platforms that feel more instant/informal like Twitter and IG so I hope I see you there! We’ll keep the cartoon indecency going together 😄💕

    Like. I’m a firm believer that porn online shouldn’t be within kids reach (those “are you 18” checkboxes for life) but. Like. Ok first of all, just ban cp? It’s not hard? Cp is what got you into this mess just ban it. Second of all, you could increase the age of sign-up from 13 to 18. Third of all, you could do what deviantart does and just. Require birthdays at sign-up. If your blog is flagged as nsfw, you can’t interact with minors. You want to follow an nsfw blog? Prove you’re an adult. You’re an adult but don’t want to see nsfw content? Safe search (that actually works).

    It’s not hard to make a functioning website, but staff doesn’t seem to want to do that.

    DEATH COMES

    I would always say, sure, Tumblr is a hot mess of a hellsite, but where else am I gonna find motherfuckers who draw Osmosis Jones having a steamy intimate romp with Thrax? WELL it seems Tomblr is not even going to have that going for it anymore soon, so what’s the point? I joined this site in 2014 and it has never felt great to use, but it stayed close to my heart for the freedom of expression it offered. ha HA pity that

    here’s all the places you can find me

    https://www.instagram.com/utzsar/ For those of you that enjoy this blog and prefer only to see my cute SFW things, I have this instagram where you can see that and ALSO pictures of my cat

    https://twitter.com/utzsar I post the same stuff on this twitter as I post here as well as previews of NSFW content so that it can remain viewable by everyone regardless of if they are logged into twitter.

    https://twitter.com/dameutzsar explicit NSFW art twitter that I setup this morning by complete coincidence, I guess I felt this universal shift in my bones. you’ll probably see a lot of sketchy nsfw WIPs here

    http://www.furaffinity.net/user/madamutzsar/ a lawless land of savages, Furaffinity is the reigning king of free expression on social media in my eyes, I would surely use it more if there were more activity… but you can find lots of my art there anyway, and I do YCH auctions sometimes :)

    and of course I’m on patreon! https://www.patreon.com/utzsar 

    I’m also utzsar on pillowfort though I probably won’t use that much until it has open registration.

    and well I guess now is as good a time as any to debut my personal website, I’ve kept it a lil bit secret because I’m still working on it but HECK it’s pretty functional and has the majority of my art sorted for your viewing pleasure, so take a gander at madutz.com [nsfw!!] if my wicked presence should ever be purged from these other locations ♥ ♥ ♥

    DO NOT DELETE YOUR BLOGS!!

    Tumblr is specifically banning CONTENT not entire blogs! Don’t loose your hard-earned followings just yet! I know this is a big loss for the sex worker community but there may be some hope left for us here. A lot of people have been talking about using censors, posting non-nude ads, etc. so don’t delete your blogs just yet! It’s irreverable and you may regret it later on. Wait it out, and let’s see where this goes. We WILL adapt. ❤️

    Important about the Tumblr “Purge”

    Tumblr has made and official statement on twitter about what’s going on:

    We’re committed to helping build a safe online environment for all users, and we have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to media featuring child sexual exploitation and abuse. As this is an industry-wide problem, we work collaboratively with our industry peers and partners like NCMEC to actively monitor content uploaded to the platform. Every image uploaded to Tumblr is scanned against an industry database of known child sexual abuse material, and images that are detected never reach the platform. A routine audit discovered content on our platform that had not yet been included in the industry database. We immediately removed this content. Content safeguards are a challenging aspect of operating scaled platforms. We’re continuously assessing further steps we can take to improve and there is no higher priority for our team.

    Please please please, for the love of everything, stop spreading fear in our community. They are not purging your blogs for having NSFW content. If your blog gets deleted and you didn’t have any of the above mentioned content, or something that could be percived as such, then please contact Tumblr Support to regain your blog. They can be contacted via the form here.

    Please reblog so people stop spreading false information and cause unnecesary fear.

    Not sure what exactly is going on but apparently a lot of NSFW blogs are getting shut down lately because of whatever’s going on with the app store? I’d hate that since this is where most of you guys follow me 😥 Just to be safe you can follow me and my artwork (SFW and NSFW) on my Twitter (@xxxubbles) or my SFW art only on my Instagram (@XubsDraws). Both have been slow lately because I’m recovering from a recent hard drive failure but I should be posting art again soon, hope to see you there! 🙌🏾💞
