EXTREMELY IN-DEPTH GUIDES TO DRAWING DIFFERENT ETHNICITIES
I am just crying tears of happy joy and whispering GAIAONLINE TAKE NOTE
‘the Irish head (skull) is one of the largest in Europe’
‘Irish are broad built and large boned’
‘Irish have characteristically thick eyebrows’
guess I know what to blame my problems on
but no this is a great resource totally rad check it out
This is really, really fascinating!
i’ve been waiting for this reference for a million years
I was mildly amused with this note:
IMPORTANT: Mixed types (such as Filipinos) are not covered in these guides, SO DON’T ASK.
haha, true, we mixed types certainly are hard to portray right, since we can pretty much range from stereotypical Malayan/Indonesian to pretty-much Caucasian and wide spectrum of inbetweens (I personally match that of the “hobo” subtype myself to, hahaha)
YES.YES.YES. People need to realise this
This belongs more on Facebook than it does on tumblr.
i think you’re missing out on some of tumblr then… but it should be on facebook too, it should be on every social media site!
the only thing I probably disagree with these though is the one regarding depression. depression is not a petty matter of “medication”, as that’s just as shallow as saying homosexuality is something you can “treat” by drinking some random chemical coctail.
depression is a mental state, and it certainly can be caused by boredom, indefference, or lack of motivation. more accurately, these three are not the triggers per se, but work mostly as catalysts the accelerate the effect of depression. relying on “medication” to “cure” “depression” is one of the most bullshitty contemporary snake-oil shittery to exist. not that the state of depression can’t be removed, or that chemical cocktails don’t help, but treating “clinical depression” as a mostly chemical thing is just new-age bullshit - you might as well invent a chemical-delivery method that “turns her on in 3 easy steps”, as if lust is some hard-wired switch the perfect chemical combination just turn turn on.

hah, fate foreshadows so it seems. I’m a disaster in first impressions, can’t hold a conversation worth a damn aside from information-gathering, and have the general physic of an urchin - sweat stench, hairdo, manners, and all.
I’m probably going to end my life as a hobo, hahahaha. Maybe I should pre-empt it with a bullet and die with some dignity.
Then again, I can’t even afford a gun. And I lack the balls to retrieve my ROTC ID to legally purchase a fire arm (because I lack the street smarts to buy one in the black market).
