Yeah this is a huge fear of mine, I tend to freeze in scary situations. Also I fear not realising what's going on until it's too late.

I'd recommend going over self defence techniques over and over until it comes naturally to you, that way you don't need to think you can just let muscle memory do its work. Essentially anyone who comes too close for comfort (after you express discomfort and show what your barrier is) has negative intent (why else would they want to make you uncomfortable?) An easy test is to bring your hands up to your face (like you're avoiding a kiss from someone gross lol) and take a step back, he should pull back and be apologetic if he's in any way a decent human being who understands basic social queues. So immediately be wary once that invasion of your space happens and start mentally prepping yourself for what's about to happen, don't let yourself ever be alone with a person like that, lock yourself in the ladies bathroom if you need to (you never know the strength of female comradery until you've sought help from a bunch of drunk girls in the ladies bathroom of a club…seriously bless those girls), start arranging how to get home (call a taxi to be waiting for you), have someone on the phone…

Once his mood changes (generally assholes will go from sweet and charming to insane in a few seconds) fucking run ASAP because you only have those few seconds before it gets physical. Pick up something heavy to hit him with if you can descretly (a bottle, a vase, your handbag, a phone…whatever is near). Trust your INSTINCTS, the human brain is trained to know what anger looks like (look at his eyebrows, his fists, if he's bending his knees to stabilise himself before a punch/grab).

I'm not saying that rapists/attackers are intelligent but instinctively they go for people who they consider weak (there are videos online of people describing their perfect targets, I'll post if I can find them again) so essentially girls who are small, seem shy, wear heels they can't run in, stray from their friends often, are careless with their drinks, look like they are too shy to scream…I'm not saying that you should be constantly on edge while out (that would ruin your night and give you anxiety!) But if he's expecting you to be quiet and not fight back, you have to do the opposite. In those few seconds I mentiPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>It's fucking illegal, you knob

Who carries a kitchen knife as a self-defense knife? Like…what the fuck is wrong with you? I know you can't buy sharp objects in England without an ID but good god you are dense.

Also, nice posting 20x in a thread just to claim I'm a /k/loving Robot who has a dominating-woman fetish, it deeply amuses me that you project this image on anyone who disagrees with you. Who's the triggered one exactly? What else can you project?
That I don't know self Defense? That I haven't fought a Man? That I don't know how to use a knife?

>I'm not saying that rapists/attackers are intelligent

So if the rapists isn't smart, I guess that means the victims are even dumber!

I've been kicked in the nuts with steel toed boots, smashed in the head with a bottle and hit/scratched in the face/eyes by normal sized 200 pound men. I hardly noticed, but I do have a scar on my head from the bottle. Don't overestimate the effectiveness of cheap shots. If you live in a dangerous place like South Africa or Detroit you should carry a gun and add pistol shooting to your martial arts skillset. Pretty much the only way to equalize a fight. Yes, judo and such teaches you to use the enemy's weight against him, but that's exactly what your opponent tries against you with the advantage of being twice the size and 3 times as strong. De-escalation and running away are less likely to result in injury.

Perhaps unrelated, but I've met more women who've been attacked by a woman than women who've been attacked by a man. probably has to do with the legions of 100% certified insane people wandering around my town.

this is a weird site. you people are weird.

I was on DA in the 2000s, and the most popular illustrators used Prisma and Copic markers. However most of them have moved on to digital art because its easier, faster, and has a go-back button to fix mistakes. I agree that using using markers is a noob thing to do.

I mean markers are always fun to use, but not professional tier so to speak.

No. 187481

Samefagging here, I also forgot to mention that those popular artists moved on to digital because its much more accessible now then say 10 years ago

Don't copics fade like a total bitch? That's probably why no one except Weebs uses them

No. 187496

yep they tend to fade overtime, especially under sun/UV light

No. 187503

Most traditional materials damage under sun or UV light, acrylic or oils discolor, Paper yellows etc. That's why most museums keep every piece of direct light and companies put original artwork into storage.

That's probably also why digital art is prefered for commercial work nowadays, it's faster and easier to fix. Some clients still like traditional sketches done with marker/watercolor but almost every product is finished digitally nowadays.

Is anybody else genuinely worried the political climate in the US right now?

I definitely am, because of the Trump adminstration doing things like cutting EPA and other industy's funding, pushing coal, the involvement with Russia, Trump's inability to be tactful, etc. I didn't vote for him, but after he won the election I tried to stay optimistic about it and was for the first month, but that feeling didn't last. I'm also worried that the democrats are going to obstructionist about everything when it isn't always necessary. I wish this polarization would end but I feel like it'll only get worse.

Also anons from other countries are welcome to discuss they're worries.

This is a thread where you can talk about your frustrations with these ~BODEH POSITIVETAY uwu~ "activists" taking over social media to promote obesity under the guise of "making the world a better place".

Everything they do is for attention. They don't understand ANYTHING basic about fitness and healthy weight.
