I’LL LOVE YOU FOREVER - Harry Shum, Jr.
One of my fb followers wanted to have my feedback on her work, though there’s so much i could fix and change i thought to paint it over instead, she requested if i could make it in my own version so she can study it.
"We’d like to dedicate this to our guardian angle, that’s my son, Ryder Buck. Thank you, Ryder." -Chris Buck, Director of Frozen, on accepting the Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film
Chris Buck’s youngest son, Reed, goes to my school, so I know the story of what happened to Ryder Buck, who Chris Buck, the Director of Frozen, thanked in his Oscar speech, and I wanted to share it with you because I feel like 99% of the audience in that room and across America did not, and still do not know the meaning of Mr. Buck’s acceptance speech.
Ryder Buck was diagnosed with Stage 4 testicular cancer in August of 2012. He loved music and was aspiring to be a musician, and remained positive through everything he went through. His treatments began to work, and his test results showed he was cancer free in April of 2013.
In October, my neighbors were having a party which my parents went to, and Ryder’s mother was telling everyone how excited and ecstatic she was that her son was free of cancer.
A week or so later, Ryder died in a car crash. He was hit by two cars on the freeway. Over 1,200 people attended his memorial service in November. The service was only to last 90 minutes, but as so many people showed up, it ended up being over 3 and a half hours.
Ryder had died 24 days before Frozen hit theaters.
This is so sad…
Oh how awful! I hope he was proud of his fathers work. =[

There’s always space for yet another armor tutorial, right? (ﾉ´ヮ´)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
Note that the armor I drew would be worn around 15th century, the more into the future the less and less components knight’s armor had (i. e. in early 14th century instead of greaves a knight would wear long boots only; in 12th century knights didn’t wear plate breastplates and instead a chain mail only). Also the design of armor pattern changed by year and was different in every country (i.e. in eastern Europe armors, while still looking European, were heavily influenced by Turkey). so just make sure you always do research whenever drawing an armor. And one more thing to keep in mind is that armors were expensive, knights wearing a full plate armor weren’t an often sight.
Some links that may be useful:
- Armour Archive (I strongly suggest to browse its forum, there is no country or period of which armor wouldn’t be discussed)
- Therion Arms (armorer’s page; each accessory is photographed in big resolution and several time so it’s a nice page to use as reference for drawing)
- Revival Clothing (another store, but both with medieval clothing and armors; I suggest to read the articles, they’re often supported with pictures)
- Basic Armouring:A Practical Introduction to Armour Making (pdf)
- Educational Charts (pdf, shows how armors and weapons changed over the years)
- Medieval & Renaissance Material Culture (actual medieval resources, mostly paintings. And my favourite subpage - women in armor)
- Dressing in Steel (youtube; a demonstration how to dress in armor)
- How shall a man be armed? (youtube; another demonstration but with 4 different knights from different periods)

Want to know her beauty regimen? The stunner keeps things as simple and natural as possible.
“She moisturizes with argan oil, pomegranate oil and kukui oil from Hawaii interchangeably[,] and removes her makeup with avocado oil. Should she ever break out – which is rare – she spot-treats with a fresh garlic clove. “My mother instilled in me that nature knows best,” she says.”
buying all that shit

I’ll have to try out her natural oils regime; Moi skin has dry spots errywhere due to the heat, AC overload due to said heat and my usual regime not cutting it anymore ;_;
