i’m actually amazed i haven’t heard more people talking about the moment sansa assists tyrion in this ep. sansa choosing to assist tyrion is a Huge Deal considering the situation - joffrey is publically humiliating him, making a big, ugly display of his power. and simply by handing tyrion the cup sansa is openly displaying her hostility towards joffrey, and her giving voice to everyone’s disapproval. not to mention, it’s a perfect example of ‘courtesy is a lady’s armour’ - that kindness, acting doubly as an insult, as a statement. she chooses to side with the person joffrey is humiliating. she takes away some of his power just by being kind.
and can we talk about this moment?
this is the person who tormented her for months. the person who could easily punish her over and over for any small transgression against him.
and she looks him in the eye, bends down and picks up that cup, and makes no mistake in showing him she knows exactly what she’s doing and she doesn’t approve of his actions.
just want to raise a glass for oberyn for being one of the few characters who is actually disgusted and enraged by rape and the rape culture of westeros while being non-white, non-het, and not a huge piece of crap towards bastards and non-noble ppl
I realized last night that I was doing precisely what I am telling my young student not to do: Jumping straight into things without planning.
I don’t know why I thought I could just ~*figure it out along the way*~, I never can.
My professor told me frequently, “work smarter not harder” and planning is a crucial element to getting the working smarter thing to well, work. And of course during the process there is (at least for me) some level of improvisation to prevent things from becoming too rigid, but the entire process AS IMPROV just doesn’t work.
I think I was/am frustrated that my shiny new camera got broken and hasn’t been replaced yet and I usually shoot my own reference. I don’t want to have to Frankenstein reference together because it’s usually not what I want and well I kinda suck at it tbh. Usually it creates more problems than it solves for me.
But since it’s all I have at my disposal at present it’s what I have to work with and I’ll just have to make it the best I can.
So new work will come as soon as I get my shit together, which will be as soon as possible.
For those of you who keep up with my art blog…. I jumped the gun a bit concerning the speed of new works coming out because I am an idiot.
