Persephonebooth's Booth

Hi, I'm Grace! I draw/color my own manga as well as fanart, I'm a (very small!) YouTuber, and I spend too much time on Tumblr. All while getting a Ph.D. (not a joke, I'm about to finish my doctoral dissertation, yay!). Check out my art and videos via the links to the right :)

Bunny falls asleep

bun didn’t actually fall asleep!! bunnies flop over like this when they feel safe and comfortable in their environment. they rarely stretch out and lay down because they’re prey animals, so when ur bun does completely lays on their side or their back, it means they feel 10000% safe around you

It’s a new Notes from Grace video!!! I discuss my first time… eating pumpkin pie! go on a minor rant about PSLs, and show you the slew of pumpkin products I’ve already amassed (and it’s not even October yet!).

If you haven’t already, remember to subscribe to my channel for more videos :)

Sketches (by Glen Keane) and final animation

The first time I watched Tangled, I didn’t make much of it. But after the second time I have a new found appreciation of it because:

A. Rapunzel and Gothel’s relationship really resonated with me. It reminded me of several women in my own family and some friends I once considered precious, who harmed me emotionally for a long time under the guise of “loving” me. You can’t erase years of verbal abuse (you’re ugly, you’re a coward, you’re useless, you’re weak, you’re annoying, you will not make it far with your personality, etc) by simply saying “oh, but we’re family/friends.” Rapunzel’s isolation, self-doubt, and especially her guilt for betraying Gothel by seeking freedom from her abuse… Seeing that now made me wish this movie had been around when I was 14-16 and going through the same.

B. The art is simply stunning. The character design is charming and all, but the landscapes and architecture are the real star of this movie. Even as much as I love Frozen, to me Tangled is superior in this particular sense. (and the scene with the paper lanterns is so beautiful it always makes me cry. Every single time)

So I’m thinking about doing live stream art lessons. These would be actual free lessons from a New York State certified art teacher, not just watching me draw.  
The “catch” would be that if you want to chose what (fanart like this) I draw/what topic I cover, you have to vote on one of three options by making a small $2 donation towards my game design fund.  All of this is meant to fund an adventure game that will teach kids how to research and think critically on the internet.
This is just an idea at the moment…so please let me know if you would like such art lessons, or would want to help me fund the pre-production of my game’s demo by voting on lesson topics. 

SIGNAL BOOST!!!
