That's All You Need To Know by Kid-Apocalypse That's All You Need To Know by Kid-Apocalypse
I also have a weird speech impediment that causes me to replace s's (and some c's) with f's and v's, depending on whether it's a voiceless alveolar fricative or a voiced alveolar fricative, respectively. This is usually when the sound is at the end of a word, most often words like yes (yef) and is (iv). I was not born with it, and I do not do it on purpose.

....probably should mention that I'm a student of languages and sound... ^^;

And I know my handwriting is crap, so this is a trailer for the movie I watch whenever I'm sad. [link] Watch it, love it. Yoo Ah In is adorable, and so is Choi Ji Ho. :meow:

i like my new style so much better than the old one.

:) That's cool.
Din't have a speech impediment. Did you ever dream of your own language? I had a dream where I "understood" the words while in my dream, but when I woke up and tried to make sense of them, it was like "WAT?"

I'm ridiculously proud of how this came out. :laughing: I think that's just the euphoria of obtaining a new style.

I actually really like my speech impediment, it makes me laugh. Maybe it's inevitable; when I was a kid, I couldn't articulate my r's.

Yes! I love those dreams. Sometimes it's language like French, but other times I wake up mumbling things like "no'mchata gadda vveh".

Well, proud you should be.

My younger sisters couldn't pronounce their r's either. :)

I've summoned an aiding spirit in a foreign tongue in my dreams once. :D

And giddy I am. :lol: All I really draw is people, ne? And the things about my style that I've never really been happy with is eyes and mouths. Hands are hard, yeah, but I've learned tricks with those that aren't so much style as "getting through the annoyingly difficult part". But...I like the eyes and mouths now. Face shapes are next, I guess. How do you get a different look in head shapes from one person to another?

:3 I love speech impediments, which may be strange. When my cousin DS was really really small, I was the only one who could always understand him. He had almost every speech impediment you can think of.

That is the coolest dream feat ever! I give you the trophy of windom. :clap:

Eyes...eyes were/are always important for a character. If I couldn't get the eyes, I couldn't get the character. I dunno how it'd work for you, but I usually start with the basic oval, and re-arrange it from there. but I've found that hair usually makes a fair head shaper most times.

Aw, poor guy...it's tough, esp. if one stutters.

:nod: Oh yes. More often than not, I start with the bottom, to slightly define the cheek. Then I draw the rest of the eye, and then the parts of the eyelid. The hardest part for me is the iris. I've learned some tricks, but that part always takes me a while, and I have to do it on a layer separate from the rest of the eye.

That was actually one problem he never had. Just sound confusion with certain letters. He went through speech therapy and now he speaks more clearly than most people.

Do you ever find you feel more comfortable with a particular angle of the face? 3/4 for me, sometimes, and full faced...

Did he also have a hearing problem? :?

Yes, most definitely. It's one of the things I need to cut out, I think. 3/4, facing the viewer's left. I can do more dynamic angles of the head, but I tend to default to that. And I dislike drawing in profile, because it's difficult to make the head not look squashed and elongated. Some artists I can think of have never been able to draw profile shots.

Hmm...no, I'm pretty sure he didn't.

I actually really like the way you colour and sha-ade. :)

...and I've gotten lost in my own neighborhood before. Also...I watched that video. I've no idea what they're saying but I had to fav. it 'cause it actually does make me happy for some weird reason. xD

Thank you! :D This is my Photoshop colour/texture/shade method, since that's what I was drawing in. Lately I like Photoshop a lot more than Painter...

Mine really isn't that big, but it's a housing project, so everything looks really similar to everything else. ^^;

That movie cures every poor/bad mood I ever have. It's hilarious and it covers a deep range of emotions and the human experience. Also there is cake, and I love Soo Yeong's bumbling. X3
