10 typical perspective errors

electricalice:

Drawing perspective is considered one of the hardest things in art, except the mistakes usually done are pretty much always the same and can be avoided with a little care.

1. Lines not reaching the vanishing point

Well this is pretty simple to avoid but it’s the most common mistake. It’s probably due to either carelessness or really not having understood the basic of perspective. I encourage you to go back and find some basic tutorial for this.

Anyway, be ALWAYS careful about where to ‘send’ your lines, they NEED to go towards the correct vanishing point or it will just look awkward. Double check if necessary.

And always, ALWAYS use a ruler.

If your style requires lines that are a bit less geometrical (as mine do, I have a style of inking that’s sketchy so ‘perfect’ lines drawn with a ruler usually don’t fit well in the picture) use a ruler anyway for the pencils and then ink later by freehand. At least you’ll have correct guidelines underneath.

For traditional drawing be sure you have a ruler and be sure to use it for each one of your lines.

Modern drawing software will help you a lot with this if you draw directly on computer: painting software such as Clip Studio Paint or Manga Studio 4EX or 5 have perspective tools that will automatically snap your lines towards the vanishing point.

On average, you have a 1 in 18,989 chance of being murdered

A trans person has a 1 in 12 chance of being murdered

The average life span of a cis person is about 75-90 

The average life expectancy of a trans person is 23-30 years old

75% of people killed in anti LGBT hate crimes are poc

Think about this the next time you go crying over “cisphobia” and “reverse racism”

Okay, but let’s talk Ahri and Leona for realsies. None of this “ship them because they were together for a minute” stuff, none of this “omg lesbians” thing, let’s get down to what’s really going on here.

Ahri is a fox. This is the first fact that needs to be understood. She is not a human, she is a fox who has been BECOMING human by devouring the souls of men, until she eventually reached the point where she felt regret for what she had been doing. She’s a child learning how to interact with humans and trying to figure out what right and wrong is.

And who better to be a moral compass than Leona?

While Leona may have her flaws, she is also arguably one of the gentlest champions in the League—a woman who will defend the weak and helpless and spare those who don’t deserve to die. She would be a good mentor for Ahri, and because she is no doubt popular, Ahri would probably see her as a good person to be around. She might be a little shy and hesitant, but Leona’s also the type of girl who would be welcoming and know how to extend a gentle hand.

Add to that the fact that Ahri is probably fairly vulnerable and feared—and possibly overly trusting—and Leona would have plenty of reasons to stick with her: Ahri is the young one who needs some protection. Leona catnip.

If you take this and see it as such, then Leona being the super-protective guardian makes perfect sense: image

…and Ahri’s horror at seeing this amazing woman harmed on her behalf—something she has probably never gotten used to, if she’s experienced this at all—is also understandable.

If Leona was the girl who stuck up for Ahri and kept bullies from pulling her tail, and suddenly she got hacked down…yep, that’s the face.

Are they still shippable?

OF COURSE.

But I think it’s a cool dynamic to explore with both of these characters as individuals.
