um. what is there to say about her pigtails… they’re like dog ears, man. like basset hound, only not as wide. they don’t really stick out from her head much (thus defying the laws of real world hair) and they’re just really simplified limp noodles. pigtails are dang heavy, man, so they don’t float away like giftwrap ribbon unless you’re bringing out the shoujo sparkles (which is totes valid).
they’re bendy toothpicks attached to her head. like for real I just carelessly draw a vaguely curved line for each one while thinking about gravity. Eventually I remember to come back and draw a second line.
reblagging because now with examples! (as seen on tv)
all the staff at the university I went to suck. They don’t know what address they sent my degree to. I may never see it. 72,000 for it by the time I finish at 43 and they can’t find it?? and they had no emotional reaction at all
