In the Victorian era, hand-fans were used not only to cool oneself but also as a secret way to communicate the language of love. For example, by running one’s fingers through the fan’s ribs, one is trying to say, "I want to talk to you." The enigmatic language of the fan was widely used by both men and women.I. A fan placed near the heart."You have won my love."II. A closed fan touching the right eye."When may I be allowed to see you?"III. A closed fan moved threateningly."Do not act so impudently!"IV. A half-opened fan pressed to the lips."You may kiss me."V. Covering the left ear with an open fan."Do not betray my secret."VI. Hiding the eyes behind an open fan."I love you."VII. Shutting a fully open fan slowly."I promise to marry you."VIII. Fanning oneself slowly."I am married."IX. Letting one’s fan rest on the right cheek or the left."Yes" and "No", interchangeably.X. Opening and closing the fan several times."You are cruel."XI. Fan in front of the face."Follow me."XII. Twirling the fan in the left hand."We are being watched."XIII. Fan held over left ear."I wish to be rid of you."XIV. Carrying an open fan in the left hand."Come and talk to me."XV. Opening a fan wide."Wait for me."XVI.

I have a question: will Emily Jane/Sreaphina appear in your story as Mother nature? That would be nice to see her :)
Anonymous asked

If I ever finish this story (God help me), then yes, I intend to use her in its tentative sequel.

     Rise of the Guardians II: Storybook. 
     [PART 2/5]
     A Personal Project exploring what could happen after the first Rise of the Guardians film, based upon both the content of the film as well as the Novels and Picture Books by William Joyce. Some knowledge of this content is necessary to understand the project fully, though some key story points are explained within the project. The full story is extensive and so is split into 5 posts.
     All Rise of the Guardians and Guardians of Childhood characters are the property of Dreamworks and William Joyce, respectively. 
     Please enjoy.

Are you still doing the mini-tutorial thingies? If so, could you please do one on people holding hands? Drawings hands is hard already, but I've recently realized that two interlaced hands are even harder to draw X_x
petitepluume asked

toastyhat:

Okay, this is going to look like a “how to hold hands” tutorial so y’all can laugh at that, but I find that the best way to figure things like this out is sometimes to think through the interactions necessary to get into the position.  So here we go.

As for drawing hands in general, yeah, that’s a whole other kettle of fish. u_u

Toasty, I just want to say not only is your art great, but you're a great person and I someday hope I can draw like you with enough practice because, frankly, I love both your attention to detail and your art style. <3 Do you have any tips for drawings face shapes and features? It's not exactly my strength.
strideersantlers asked

toastyhat:

I kind of got lost talking about expressions but I would also like to stress that variation is super important—going outside your comfort zone with different kinds of features and face shapes!  My role model in that area is mangaka Yusuke Murata. uvu
