Okay, so these were the characters from a comic I was working on all last semester - a 1920s version of Beauty and the Beast, which I may or may not post here in the future. It didn’t get to be quite as fleshed out as I wanted (I half-want to make a longer version…then again, I sorta don’t. Lol), but the implication at the end was that the Beast doesn’t change back in the end and they’re both okay with that. The Beast (still haven’t given him a proper name; “Amicus” was a placeholder) was a big furry monster a long time ago, but his fur and parts of his skin just kinda fell out because he was getting so old (but still immortal, somehow???? Idek). He was fun to draw, with his gorilla skull head and Rasputin hands.
My problem with BatB, even though it’s my favorite fairy tale and I’ve seen and read so many versions, is that the ending is a cop-out. It undermines the whole point of the story’s message - “Love someone for who they are on the inside and not what they look like…but then you’ll get a physically handsome prince in the end, so never mind.” Yeah, no. And I get it - people don’t want to think about the idea of a woman and a monster getting together because they see some inherent bestiality. Well, I dunno, the Beast is always a pretty sentient, conscious, and self-aware creature with his own thoughts, ideas, and feelings, things most animals are not, at least not in the way people are. So, again, I’m not sure if it makes me a freak for wanting a story to stick to its premise (or being turned into a teratophile, or whatever), but there it is, I guess.

5-Year-Old With Autism Paints Stunning Masterpieces 

Autism is a poorly-understood neurological disorder that can impair an individual’s ability to engage in various social interactions. But little 5-year-old Iris Grace in the UK is an excellent example of the unexpected gifts that autism can also grant – her exceptional focus and attention to detail have helped her create incredibly beautiful paintings that many of her fans (and buyers) have likened to Monet’s works.

Little Iris is slowly learning to speak, whereas most children have already begun to speak at least a few words by age 2. Along with speech therapy, her parents gradually introduced her to painting, which is when they discovered her amazing talent.

“We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking,” her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson, explains on her website. “Then we realised that she is actually really talented and has an incredible concentration span of around 2 hours each time she paints. Her autism has created a style of painting which I have never seen in a child of her age, she has an understanding of colours and how they interact with each other.”

Much better version of the same subject matter I posted earlier.

one of my clients is non-communicative but he can design the most gorgeous digital abstract art and this just made me think of him and smile a whole lot.

I’m trying to make a design for a tote bag (and possibly a t-shirt), but I’ve never done anything like this before so I’ve struggled with it for two days now. I find it painful to be so neat, lol. But I’m not going to let this picture defeat me!! e_e I wanted to draw a cute animal combined with Victorian gothic… I hope you guys like how it looks so far. I hope it’s not too silly, hehe e_e
