This is how to run a stick of Chapstick
down the black boxes on your scantron
so the grading machine skips the wrong
answers. This is how to honor roll. Hell,
this is how to National Honor Society.
This is being voted “Most Likely to Marry
for Money” or “Talks the Most, Says the
Least” for senior superlatives. This is
stepping around the kids having panic
attacks in the hallway. This is being the
kid having a panic attack in the hallway.
This is making the A with purple moons
stamped under both eyes. We had to try.
This is telling the ACT supervisor you have
ADHD to get extra time. Today, the average
high school student has the same anxiety
levels as the average 1950’s psychiatric
patient. We know the Pythagorean theorem
by heart, but short-circuit when asked
“How are you?” We don’t know. We don’t
know. That wasn’t on the study guide.
We usually know the answer, but rarely
know ourselves.

HIGH SCHOOL By Blythe Baird (via bl-ossomed)



Ok, this is probably a very bad idea to post it here, but here goes.

This originated from a simple thought that after the event’s of second movie, Hiccup is going to have a REALLY hard time. He’s often going to hide in the shadows, exhausted. How to lift the mood of someone who’s down? with a little affection. Sometimes it comes a little unexpected…

A series of sketches with a little colors splashed. After scanning it wasn’t exactly clear what was in the shadow and what was not.

This is so beautiful oh my gosh.




the chief has come home (x)

OH MY FUCKING… you can see one by one hair, eyebrows, eyelashes, and even the reflection of the shadow Hiccup’s watching in both eyes!!

this is actually really nice animation

the texture on her nail and the dirt underneath it

the slight dilation of hiccup’s pupils when he opens his eyes

the muscles in his forehead tensing up in the second gif and relaxing in the third

dreamworks has some fucking awesome attention to detail
