Alright guys, this shit got me heated. 
So today as I was getting ready for school, I get a call from my youngest sister’s elementary school clinic. My sister gets on the phone and tells me she is sitting out of class because her skirt is too short. “You need to bring me one that goes down to my knees, they said,” is what she told me.
Quick recap: My sister is eleven years old, in fifth grade, and has some mental and physical disabilities. She’s the tallest girl in her class. Also, the dress code states her skirt must be down to her fingertips, not her knees.
When I get there, I insisted I see her instead of just dropping her stuff off. I was not suprised to find her with a skirt obviously within the rules of the dress code. I asked her what class she was missing and she told me math. She’d been sitting out for atleast twenty or thirty minutes while she waited for me to come.
She only learns things at about a third of the pace as everyone else in her class. Even missing this short amount of time means missing a lot of information for her. Just to recap: she has to sit out of class because of the length of her skirt. She can’t even just sit in her classroom while she waits for me, because apparently that’s too distracting. To whom, you ask? I can’t really tell you. Are ten year old boys, fifth grade boys already old enough to be sexualizing her to the point that they were going so insane with horniness that they had to whisk her away until she could put on something ‘decent’. 
So not only are the sexualizing a fifth grader, they are giving her different rules for the dress code based on her height and making her miss valuable class time. This bullshit needs to stop. Eleven goddamn years old and she’s already being taught her body isn’t her own anymore, that she’s being too provocative if she wears a skirt to the same standard as all the other short, skinny girls in her class just because she looks older.
As a P.S., I would like to point out that she is already bullied because of her disabilities. Pulling her out of class and making her change is even more of an embarrassment, and only leads to more teasing. 

please signal boost this.

(ROUGHLY) THE PROCESS OF A LARGE ILLUSTRATION

  1. The client wanted his character to be a “hydra” version of the original design. I’m always happy to do a little creature design on the side, and brainstormed some quick concepts for where and how to fit the multitude of heads and limbs.
  2. After cementing the basics of the main character, I drew thumbnails to figure out the poses and general elements of the picture.

    ART TIP: Get in the habit of doing thumbs for larger pieces and save yourself from hours of grief!

  3. Refining the sketch from the chosen thumbnails.
  4. GO HERE FOR ANIMATION IF PICTURE FOUR IS STATIC. 

    This commission was a collaboration between M. and yours truly. I did the initial sketchwork, background and final rendering. M. painted all of the figures up until the final frame of this .gif. Near the end I forced her to change directions on the palette and undo hours of work because I was unhappy with the colour-harmony. I still feel bad about that, but I think the result was worth it. 

    ART TIP: Do quick value/colour studies beforehand and block in larger elements before adding details… and save yourself from hours of grief!
