Would you guys mind praying for a friend of mine? He was driving earlier and was hit by a drunk driver. He should be fine, but the drunk driver’s car rolled and caught on fire, the passenger in that car may have passed we don’t know yet. Also, my friend’s parents were following behind him and saw the whole thing so pray for his parents as well.
A quick PSA, because working in a New Age store I realize a lot of people don’t know this. Keep in mind this is the simple version.
The fella on the left-hand side, that’s Gautama Buddha, the Buddha, the central figure in Buddhism. Note that he is not considered a god, but a teacher and spiritual leader, the first to attain Enlightenment in his era. Note also how thin he is. This is because the Buddha fasted a lot. He was born Siddhartha Gautama. Buddha is a title, and not actually his name.
The fella on the right-hand side is not Buddha. This is a common misconception in the West. That is Hotai (or Budai or Hotei depending on the language), a Buddhist monk from China and folkloric hero. Hotai is thought by many to be a Buddha, but he is not the Buddha. Unlike Buddha, Hotai actually is revered as a god in Chinese folklore, although not in Buddhist practice.
This post is based on things I’ve been taught by my Buddhist coworker but if I forgot or mixed up something important and you are Buddhist and you notice, please let me know.
This has been an informational post. Have a nice day.

Anonymous asked: how does someone find their drawing style
I’m not sure I can answer for everyone, but the way I found my style was by emulating styles that drew me in to begin with. I did a lot of copying, a lot of trying-different-things, which helped me to determine what suited me best. For instance, I thoroughly enjoy anime, but the style doesn’t come naturally to me. I’m sure it would if I practiced, but the way I proportion things has always leaned more toward a ‘Disney-esque’ feel…or so I’ve been told.
Someone explained it to me this way. People invent things (sometimes) out of laziness. “This is difficult for me. How can I make this easier for myself?” That’s almost what developing a style is. “I like the way XYZ looks, but the Z of XYZ gives me problems. What if I change the Z to a 7? How does that look?”
So on and so forth.
Eventually, XYZ becomes ><&7 and suddenly it’s your own thing. Your style is not something you find and never change, it evolves. My style has changed exponentially in the last year, for example. Find what you like. Emulate it. Then make it your own. And then more your own until it’s wholly yours. You can’t expect to create something unique right from the get go. It takes a lot of time and practice. So get out there and start making magic!
