I love Sam Spratt, he’s one of my favorite artists. The way he does portraits just amazes me. If you want to see more of his work you cant find it here.
Okay I would just like to say all those white artists in my classes complaining about how hard it is to paint brown skin. 😒😒😒😒😒😒 yeah sooo hard lmao
those same artist can paint brown soil, brown wood and labour over reworking beige skin over and over again doing washes and under coats…its not a matter of brown skin being hard but they simply do not care to put in the attention and care in painting it because its a brown person.
for them to paint brown skin properly like any other colour you paint, it would mean to treat the process of painting brown skin with the care, respect and labour and they can’t bring them selves to do but they can paint a trees bark really beautiful and carefully though
Ten Major Artists:
Wong Wong & Lulu
Pepper examining himself before commencing a self-portrait
Tiger the spontaneous reductionist
Misty goes off the wall
Minnie, the abstract expressionist
Minnie’s Reindeer in Provence, 1992.
Smokey painting after an hour in the catnip patch
Smokey at work
Ginger’s Stripped Bare Birds, 1992.
Princess, the elemental fragmentist
Charlie, the peripheral realist
this literally makes me so happy
Before I get into it, just know the pictures just serve as visual representations, not actual pictures
Okay so anyway, evidence for this theory is the following:
THE FACT THAT HUMANS ARE SO HAIRLESS:
Only two kind of habitats give rise to hairless animals, an aquatic one and a one below the ground (a naked mole rat for example)
.The suggestion that humans have become hairless to prevent overheating has been rendered false because hair can act like a defense against the sun.
This is why camels retain their fur even in the hot dessert environment.
OUR FAT CELLS
We have ten times the number of fat cells as expected in an animal our size. Only two types of animals have large fat cells: hibernating and aquatic ones.
In hibernating it’s seasonal fat, but in aquatic it’s all year round. It’s unreasonable to think that we evolved this feature in land because large fat pockets would have just slowed us down.
Primate babies are always born slender, but human babies start to develop fat even before birth.
WALKING ON TWO LEGS
So we’re the only mammals that have developed bipedalism. This is a surprise, because walking on 2 legs vs. walking on 4 legs is very disadvantageous. It’s slower, unstable, our organs are vulnerable to damage.
One theory is that if our habitat was flooded, we’d have to walk on two legs to keep our heads above the water.
The only animal who has ever evolved a pelvis like ours, the swamp ape, used this method.
We have conscious control over our breathing. Ever other land animal doesn’t. Mammals like dolphins and seals also conscious control because it tells them how deep they are going to dive and they can estimate how much air they need to inhale.
Our body is so wasteful of salt and water. Think of tears and our way of sweating. Other land mammals don’t have this. Water mammals do however.
Okay anyway I hope you learned something.

So. Basically. We were FUCKING MERMAIDS. Damn.
I mainly want to believe this is correct so I can be descended from mermaids
Also! we’re pruny. we have a better grip on submerged objects when our fingertips are pruny. ah wow theories,
This is a once interesting fringe hypothesis that has been thoroughly debunked! I don’t even remember all the evidence off the top of my head, but. Our fat deposits closely resemble those of other land mammals. Our body shape is NOTHING like that of aquatic vertebrates and quite like many land mammals! (Compare us to seals. We’re TERRIBLE swimmers.) Seals are hairy, hairlessness has nothing to do with swimming! (Most whales are not hairy, as adults, but that’s because they’re fricking HUGE and don’t need the insulation.) Our ability to control our breathing is easily explained by speech.
I mean I’m all for mermaid AUs but they’re fictional okay?
I have two Thrill Solo G-Spot and Clitoral Vibrators (unopened in box!) I got for free when ordering plugs for my shop and they are regular 129.00!! They are waterproof,and charge with a usb ^_^ No batteries!
Just reblog this,seriously all,and at the end of the week I’ll pick two people :) Simple as that! I already have one, so I literally have zero use for these!!
i’m never lost in a character, ever. Everything is absolutely articulated & worked out & there’s no room for error. The only thing there is room for is inspiration in the moment because you’ve done your homework up to that point.
