Why are Amethyst lips drawn so big? I mean there's nothing wrong with big lips, but her lips are just way to big, are distracting to look at, and kinda look like a baboons but on a face. I still love the show and will continue watching and supporting, but I hope that's something that changes and her lips get a little smaller maybe like the lips she had in the pilot.

ianjq:

Way to be microaggressive! Anyway, some people have big lips. Amethyst is one of those people. Maybe you should put some thought into why you find it “distracting”.

you a bitch

It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.

So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.

What’s more, it’s been shown that copula deletion occurs in AAVE exactly in those contexts where copula contraction occurs in so-called “Standard American English.” That is, the basic sentence “You are great” can become “You’re great” in SAE and “You great” in AAVE, but “I know who you are” cannot become “I know who you’re” in SAE, and according to reports, neither can you get “I know who you” in AAVE.

In other words, AAVE is a set of grammatical rules just as complex and systematic as SAE, and the widespread belief that it is not is nothing more than yet another manifestation of deeply internalized racism.

here ill post these together!! luv this water brush

Because this didn’t come in my SAI and I bet it didn’t with other people’s, here’s a pack of more textures (including the lava one!!!). Go to your SAI folder and just dump the ones you’d like in the brushtex folder (or w/e you have it called)

#1. You cant just ‘dump them in your sai folder’

you have to put it in the folder ‘blotmap’ and then hit the green start sai icon/arrow looking thing at the bottom of the main folder.  that re-caches all of your brushes.  after that it should be seen in your dropdown. UNLESS your files are in any format aside from bmp, in which case you will do this:

all of the files need to be in .BMP, which means youll be opening it in photoshop or some other program and changing the filetype by >save as> bmp

ONLY bmp files work with sai to make brushes and textures

also it will NOT work in the brushtex folder.  brushes in that folder must be 512x512 px.  Blotmap folder is 256x256. BMP format only.

Furthermore you may already have some of these.  I know the one they are calling ‘lava’ is actually a macro shot of a seashell, and I had that one already in my folder known as shell texture.

***+++ be SURE to remove the extention on the ones which have “.bmp” in their filename.  simplify it to ‘lava1’ and ‘lava2’ as an example, or yanno..seashell,1 x 2 since thats what it is.

example^

After following my instructions and hitting the start sai arrow icon to re-cache, you will see it in your dropdown

like so.

if it still does not work, try in photoshop converting to greyscale. save as bmp, place in folder, hit start sai and see if that works.

mostly, people who make brushes are SMART enough to convert to greyscale for YOU, but some ARENT. which means you have to do it yourself.

Latinx means someone who is descended from Latin America. There are dark-skinned, non-white passing people that are Latinx. There are light-skinned, non-white passing people that are Latinx who are more “accepted” because of colorism. There a light-skinned, white passing people that are Latinx and are POC who experience conditional white passing privilege. There are white people that are Latinx that experience xenophobia but no racism. There is a difference. Learn it.
