Keep talking, Wraith. Don’t slip away from me  (Preliminary sketch for my favourite scene from Six of Crows! It’s the first time it’s crystal clear how much Inej means to Kaz. He may be broken inside, but he would tear down the world for her 🖤)

Sometimes life’s a slowburn, sometimes it’s a dumpster fire. 
And sometimes, it’s just perfect. 😍

I finally put text on this! I think I started this a year ago. I decided that I actually like it better barely coloured (mostly just pencil crayon) -- it looks kind of weightless, which works with the title. (and yes this is the third time I’ve posted a new version of this picture 😂)

I wasn’t going to post this sketch but I think I have to. Every time I look at it, I’m reminded of that part in the animated Beauty and the Beast movie where Lumière is trying to coach the Beast on giving a debonair smile, and he flashes his big ugly teeth and Lumière’s like, Yeah don’t do that. The beast boyfriend’s slightly terrifying smile is nearly as funny -- turns out there’s a reason artists rarely draw orcs/trolls looking cheerful. They are much sexier when they’re fierce 😂

"New plan," he says. "We retrace our old steps, and do this all of the places we used to fight."
"That's everywhere."
“Everywhere, then.”
Don't worry boys, the fanfic authors have you covered

personally I think it is a bad habit of internet culture to reduce the role of books to mirrors exclusively and reduce them to material for consumption and projection of the self…I simply don’t see why it should be necessary to stress that there are other ways to engage with literary text. I consider the aforementioned approach to arise and gain popularity from the philosophy of easily digestible and widespread genre of books whose primary function is to sell and avoid being challenging at all cost in order to satisfy the reader who is seen as a passive consumer rather than a being capable of developing their own thoughts.

Greek myths with diversity. Indian, East Asian, Polynesian/Tahitian Black characters
@paulinainbookland​ said:
Hi!My question is pertaining to my upcoming YA contemporary fantasy series that's gonna be modern retellings of certain greek myths. The series takes place in a fictional fantasy country called Olympius. I want my series to be diverse, especially with the characters. For example, even though race doesn't technically exist, Hera is portrayed as an Indian woman, Hecate as an east asian woman, Amphitrite as a polynesian/tahitian woman while Persephone, Psyxhe, Demeter, and Aphrodite are all black as examples. I also want to integrate Greek culture into the stories. My question is, can this be done even with racially diverse characters??
I think a better way to think about this question is to ask yourself “Who were the Ancient Greeks?” Research the histories and economies of those city-states and empires, as well as the other civilizations they would have interacted with in the Mediterranean, Central Asia and South Asia. I notice that you are mixing racial coding with nationality and ethnicity, which I advise against.
There was no “India” 2500 years ago.
Tahiti similarly wasn’t inhabited until the 11th century
Ask yourself what kind of people you are picturing when you use these descriptors and why? Thus, your problem is twofold:
Shedding notions conflating race with ethnicity and nationality
Doing actual research to better understand what level of diversity in physical appearance one could reasonably expect for a setting where the Olympus of Ancient Greece is transposed onto a modern setting.
