Drawing People on your Fingers

Lately I keep finding these photos of characters people have drawn on their fingers. They are cute, some are even very clever.

I posted  two on my personal blog, Finger People and Finger Dancers.

I’m going to take this idea with me next time I visit my nieces. They will have a lot of fun, glad to have an excuse to draw on themselves. We will get out all the coloured markers, the construction paper too. I can make hats for them to cover the tip of each finger they draw a face on.

Here are some more. Mainly links to groups on Flickr where people have posted their own creations.

Velvet Pagan Backpack

backpack
I really like this but… the pentagram is the wrong way up. (For me).

Maybe I’m just not 100% pure atheist. I wouldn’t like to wear something which is known for drawing negative energies.

Killstar Damsel Velvet Backpack …but not in distress. In fact, more of a threat than you could’ve ever imagined~ This amazin’ backpack features an ultra plush black velvet construction with 100% vegan leather trim, roomy interior with bucket style drawstring closures, top flap with pentagram harness strap detailing, clasp hook closure, and plenty of zippered pockets around tha exterior.

Rules for a Fighting Slave of Gor

A really well behaved man (even without the chains) is kind of sexy.

Fighting Slave Rule 2: Fighting Slave’s shall Greet in the following fashion: To the Khan and their Master / Misress a fighting Slave shall Greet in this Fashion – to the Khan – “Tal, Khan and Master. (and any additional greetings as appropriate)” – to their Master / Mistress “Tal, my Master / Mistress, (and any additional greetings as appropriate)”
To all Free fighting slave’s shall Greet in this way – “Greetings Master / Mistress {Name}, (and any additional greetings as appropriate)”

Fighting Slave Rule 3: After being granted entry into Kasra, fighting slave’s shall greet in this order: The Khan, The Ubara, First Sword, Second Sword, your Master / Mistress, all Free Men of Kasra, All Free Women of Kasra, all Free Visitor’s / Guest’s (Master’s, then Mistresses), any you are unsure of regardless of sex, and then slaves, who are always greeted last, and may be greeted as a group.

Fighting Slave’s do not use third person greeting’s, a fighting slave’s greeting should look something like this – “Greetings Master {Name} I hope this day has been good for you?” Fighting slave’s shall also bow, slightly, to the Free they are Greeting before Greeting them.

A fighting slave’s Greetings to the Khan shall be, when they see the Khan enter they will stand and bow towards him at the waist, they shall then Greet the Khan.

Fighting Slave Rule 4: Fighting slave’s sit on the bench’s that line the wall behind the slave fur’s. They do not sit on the slave fur’s.

Fighting Slave Rule 5: Fighting slave’s, when either greeting or speaking to the Free are not required to look at the feet of the Free they are speaking to. They are to look at their chest, face or eye’s, though eye contact is not to be maintained for prolonged period’s of time.

Fighting Slave Rule 14: Always remember your place in Gor. Never forget it.

FemDom in Submission

Usually I sort out FemDom art by how it appeals to me. Mainly, does it look realistic or just a performance focused on him. This image really appeals to me because she is tied up but still looks just as involved and empowered as a Domme. This really is a power exchange and she isn’t giving up a thing just because she lets him tie her up. Source: Evelyne et Tiburce | Gracy Gimp’ drawings

Retro Internet: The 1500 Point Purity Test

Long ago, in the days of the Internet surfing highway, there was a purity test with over 1000 questions. I found a copy of it. Posted for your viewing (or take the test) pleasure.

THE UNISEX PURITY TEST

If you thought the millenial purity test was bad, well you ain’t see
nuttin’ yet!

This is the 1500 point Purity Test!

We felt that the 1000 point version lost a lot of the “fun” of the
earlier versions, so we re-wrote it, adding a few new sections, and
a shitload of questions. This test is guaranteed to be nosier that
your parents, more invasive than the census, and containing something
to offend everybody.

Also included is an answer form so that you can remember where in the
test you were, or show to a friend.

What is World Drawing Day?

The next World Drawing Day will be sometime in June, 2013. Nothing posted about this year on the site, so far. Drawing Day

“Drawing Day is a world-wide event encouraging everyone to drop everything and draw on one day. Simply draw, then submit drawings to our website or any of our participating websites.”

One day each year just pretend you can draw. Even if you can already draw, draw something more. Challenge yourself.

As a kid and a teenager and then a young woman, I always thought I could not draw. Even now, I know I’m not a great artist. It doesn’t matter. I can draw. I can draw because I want to. I enjoy drawing just because I want to do it. I don’t have to be great, I don’ t have to make masterpieces or get something in a gallery (other than the gallery I made myself).

World Drawing Day is a day for people who want to draw. People who wish they could draw and all those people who think they can’ t draw. On World Drawing Day you don’t need any special qualifications. Just draw.

What is Nudity?

Nudity in art.I write for HubPages. One thing which I find interesting there is he concept of adult content. When I posted text art (ASCII art) of nude women the post was quickly flagged and pulled. Which meant someone had reported it, or staff themselves had flagged it to be changed. The reason was nudity.

I can understand. Standards are standards. The concept of what is and what is not adult content is a fine line and dependent on the viewer. In the case of a site it is the web writer/ producer who decides where the line falls.

However, it dos get annoying when the standards are not the same across the site. I found this post today, originally posted in 2011. It’s a longer post, far more written content than mine. Of course, mine was an art gallery rather than a discussion. Still, isn’t nudity nudity? How did this post escape the censors? Was it given preference because it’s longer, had more comments?

That doesn’t work for me. So, I flagged it. Let’s see what happens.

In the case of my own post, I took it off the site and loaded it here.

The Best Kept Secret of Figure Drawing: The Open Session.

Where the Wild Things Are: Spilling the Pagan Beans

Originally posted to ‘BackWash: Where the Wild Things Are’ newsletter, April, 2, 2004.

If you read my general blabberings around BackWash you will have heard of Eric, my boyfriend. He is still pretty new but we are getting along great.

Anyway, I haven’t really talked with him about Pagan ideas and what it means for me to be an Earth Witch. That is some sort of limbo in everything. I don’t mind leaving it there, for awhile. But, I have wondered what he really thinks.

We went for a walk on the frozen beach and while he was testing the thickness of the frozen lake (testing his luck I thought at the time) I was drawing a pentacle in the sand. I used a piece of driftwood and 6 smooth stones from along the beach. I placed the stones around my drawn pentacle. It was something special for the day, for my Grandmothers and for St. Patrick’s Day.

Eric noticed it when he came back, not drowned luckily. He said something about it, nothing much. I think just noting that I had drawn it or used stones, something easy going. But I wondered what he was thinking. Anyway, I left it at that. I didn’t push it or go into lengthy explanations. It was something personal to me and though I didn’t feel I needed to hide it I still wonder what he thinks about this element of me.

How do you begin to share this with someone you care about? Is it something you leave lying on a coffee table for him to find? Is it something you bring up right away and make into a big issue? Or do you let it simmer on a back jet, there and yet not getting in the way? I’m not exactly sure how I want to handle it. So, I will do what I usually do when I’m not sure, I will ask him. Not quite yet though. There is time and space, too much of both right now. We will see.

A Bookmark You Wouldn’t Want to Lose

I found this photo on SheExists. I love the idea for a bookmark like this, elegant, feminine and romantic. The quote below came from the same site, a different post.

We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives… not looking for flaws, but for potential. – Ellen Goodman
