A Cleverly Titled Sketch Dump

The sketch like musings of Anna Clifford...



I recently made the decision to create a quick mini animation in both Paint Tool Sai + Photoshop. It turned out pretty good, it definitely could be better, but I’m too tired to work on it any further. I also threw some text on top of the gif to show you what effects I used, plus animation thumbnails below it. Enjoy!

See You Tomorrow

This is a comic about my own emotions, made to release my own emotions, and to cope with my own emotions.

kind words can cause pain

This is something people need to realize. Depression isn’t about what you don’t have. It’s uncontrollable emotions. You literally do no good by trying to explain to somebody why they should be happy. Chances are, they’ve gone over those things a million times in their just. If you have a friend who suffers with depression, just be there for them. The only way to help is with your support, not by trying to reason with them.

seriously, trying to reason with emotions is like trying to color a picture by yelling at it. You won’t get anywhere, and you’ll just feel shitty and like you accomplished nothing afterward, because the picture is still not colored and your throat hurts.

Emotions don’t always make sense, especially when you have some kind of disorder. That’s why they’re emotions and not like, math-tions.

Depression is not something you can just get over. Even with therapy and medication, when I have a really bad episode with anxiety/depression spirals, I just have to wait it out and sometimes cry a bit on a friend’s shoulder. And that’s pretty mild considering what some of my less fortunate friends go through.

If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do? 

Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.

Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?

On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.

If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10th

Everyone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown: http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown

are you fucking kidding me

apparently america is not ready

give us a gay princess anyway

not just a gay princess, a gay everything, give us a film where everything is gay.

You know what they need to do? They need to pull a Li-Shang with everyone

Have the main character be androgynous and have the audience assume it’s a female and use gender neutral pronouns the whole time

Have the prince come to ‘her’ rescue and they fall in love

Here’s the kicker the prince knows that the main character is a guy, everyone in the movie does except the audience

And in the last scene they get married and they’re both wearing tuxes and it’s just like “presenting King __ and King __” and everyone in the movie is cool with it like wgaf

So basically make all these homophobes ship the thing and then the last scene be like GUESS WHAT IT’S GAY

galua asked: Sounds great, I'm still interested for sure, I can take your paypal info now. Do you have a preferred email or a deviant art even so I can send you my character's information? I'm not a big fan of this small tumblr box.

Certainly! You can find me at http://anna-draws-things.deviantart.com and my paypal is anna.kristine.clifford@gmail.com (I think!)
