Although indigenous people ranked below Spaniards in Spanish America’s social order, direct descendants of pre-Hispanic nobility were afforded certain political privileges, including the right to hold office in local government. In order to legitimize claims to noble lineage in the viceroyalty of Peru, members of the Inca elite often conspicuously displayed in their homes Europeanized portraits of their ancestors, the fourteen ancient Andean rulers.

Art School consumption of graphic media:

Wow these proportions are so bad this artist is terrible how do they get work we should all redline these to show how much better we could do them if they hired people like us

Professional Life consumption of graphic media:

"Poor dude probably had to draw like eighty panels that day, I hope he didn’t have to spend his whole weekend doing weird revisions marketing came up with"

What an awful logo these guys don’t know shit about character design

Professional Life consumption of graphic media:

I bet the client was only offering them like fifty bucks to make that and threatened to get his “artistic nephew” to do it instead at some point.

If you cant attend life drawing sessions. This is the best thing for you

Let me show you something I recently found : Croquis Cafe!

You get to see models of different colors and shapes in a life drawing setting. They move and breath while posing (breathing like in real life :O) ambient music is playing in the background and you have 1, 2  and 5 minute sessions. I find it very helpful , you should try it.

Maybe a relationship is just two idiots who don’t know a damn thing except the fact that they’re willing to figure it out together.

Tan Yunxian / 谈允贤

[x]

I noticed we haven’t featured a lot of medieval POC women in science, so here’s one. 

Tan Yunxian (1461–1554) was a doctor in Ming Dynasty China. She came from a family of physicians, specialised in gynecology, and lived to the age of 93.

She’s unusual in that she left behind a book, titled Sayings of A Woman Doctor / 女医杂言. It’s made up of 31 case studies - "habitual abortion, menstrual disorders, postpartum diseases, and abdominal lumps" - which she treated using traditional techniques such as moxibustion.

I couldn’t find any portraits of Tan Yunxian, but there’s currently a TV drama being made inspired by her life, called The Imperial Doctress / 女医·明妃传. I’m sure it’s going to be wildly inaccurate, but at least it’ll remind folks that women’s history in old China wasn’t just about bound feet.

straight people are terrifying they can go as far as to give the girl skeleton a pair of bone titties to indicate its a straight relationship

Oh my razzling dazzling god

Actually, the skeleton with bone boobs is a male skeleton. From what I can see, the pelvic inlet is too narrow to be female, and the pubic arch is far too V shaped to be female. So this is scientifically two male skeletons.

the straights have been foiled again

You don’t know what that skeleton identifies as, maybe bone titties make it feel more comfortable with itself in the afterlife, where bodies become decidedly more difficult to modify.

This only happened yesterday and it’s already got over 50K notes… 

Finally humans with humanity

A little information for ya’ll, this man fell in between the carriage and platform and was freed less than ten minutes later. 

When he fell employees of Transperth (Australia) were meters away and were able to signal the driver so he would not just take off and rip the guys leg off.

The staff motioned everyone on the platform to push the carriage in a tear worthy moment of people power

The guy who fell wasn’t hurt and got on the next fucking train so he could go to work.

And if that isn’t the tightest shit you ever heard get the fuck out of my face.

I love this and I am even happier because I found one girl person contributing to this tear jerker moment.
