Can we all please take a moment to appreciate Hagrid here? Seriously, everyone always talks about how Harry has no father figure and how terrible it was for Sirius to die because now Harry’s all alone (dont get me wrong, Sirius is my favorite character) but honestly, Hagrid is the best father Harry ever had. He did so much for him, and no one, sometimes not even Harry realizes that. Hagrid gets no where near the mount of credit he deserves. Take a minute and try to imagine where Harry would be with out him and you’ll understand what im talking about.
I think JKR said it was really important to her that Hagrid carried him out of the forest, because he carried him to safety when he was a baby. Hagrid has been there since the beginning, and he was also there at the culmination of Harry’s journey. He’s always cared SO MUCH and been really open with Harry for the most part, which is something Harry needs since people tend to keep secrets from him. Yeah, he’s irresponsible with the monsters, but all of Harry’s father figures were pretty irresponisble, and Hagrid was definitely like, the most solid and reliable out of all of them. And he never left.
Hagrid was also most like a parent in his correction of Harry. For Sirius and Molly, Harry could do no wrong. Dumbledore saw Harry’s flaws, but he depended on them for his own plans to work.
But Hagrid saw Harry for exactly who he was, good and bad. He was the first to publicly defend Harry’s innocence anytime he got blamed for something he didn’t do; but he was also the first to call Harry out on his treatment of Hermione in PoA. He is consistently honest and forthright in addressing Harry’s behaviour and choices, and always acts in the way he believes will be best for Harry’s growth and especially for his moral development.
Harry is the man he is because of Hagrid. No one else did that for him.

He seems okay to me, but I’m not a mouse expert and I don’t know their stress responses.
don’t save as jpeg
as a former yearbook editor and designer, let me explain this further
if youre only planning on posting your art online, them please save it as .png ;this is also better for transparencies as well
please, if youre planning of printing your art, NEVER use png. it makes the quality of the image pretty shitty. use jpeg or pdf instead. and always set your work at 300dpi to get a better printing quality - this means, the images are crisper and sharper and theres no slight blurriness. i had a talk with my friend who is currently taking design, and pdf is much better to use when youre working with a bigger publishing company because it still has the layers intact, but if youre only planning on printing your stuff at staples or at some small publishing store, the jpeg is the way to go.
this has been a public service announcement
no no no
save as a high-quality TIFF when you are taking your design to the printer. saving your files to a lossy image format doesn’t guarantee that its quality is going to be retained during printing, especially with something that artifacts as heavily as jpegs do. there is no loss quality with a tiff. only save as a jpeg if you do not have other formats available and are not concerned about the lossiness of your format.
additionally, save it at the resolution quality that the printer uses to print. 300dpi is the standard for most printers and projects but contact your printer ahead of time to find out the dpi that they normally work with for your format. for example, it does not make any sense to print a poster-sized piece of art at 300dpi. it will take too long to print and at the distance a poster is viewed you really only need 150dpi. For even larger projects you can go down to 100 or even 50 if you are talking billboard-sized. if you save a file at a resolution that the printer is not able to work with you may very well end up with an image that is too big or too small for them to be able to work with.

I haven’t seen this around tumblr just yet, so I wanted to put my own word out about it.
This is a fashion doll created by an illustrator that has been modeled to the standard proportions of the average 19 year old girl. She’s healthy, sporty, wears natural makeup, and GOSH DARNIT LOOK HOW POSABLE SHE’LL BE.
The project is technically fully funded now, but the more support and preorders it gets, the more influential it will be. My mom just got one for the sole purpose of keeping in the box, because best case scenario, these things become the next barbie and they’re worth big bucks later on; worst case scenario, she helped support an artist with a good cause.
Preorders aren’t outrageous at all. $25 for a first-edition doll that will NOT be sold in retail stores. Please spread the word and help get this doll known!
things to note: pictures 1, 2, 5, 6, and seven are 3d rendered, this does not at all reflect how the toy will look in real life.
Picture 3 is not even of Lammily, in fact, it was out long before Lammiy’s production. I don’t even think it was made by the same person as thr man who made Lammily.
Actually, the more I look at it, the more picture 4 looks rendered as well.
And an added note, this is just my opinion.
Lammily promotes the idea that pink is the problem. It would be fine if she was just a normally proportioned doll, the the creator goes out of his way to avoids giving her makeup and fashionable clothes.
Because being a woman is good, unless you like fashion, makeup and other feminine things.
Barbie is not a bad role model. She’s a astronaut, race car driver, vet, mother… I can go on.
They even have a president barbie that comes in multiple races.
And she does this all while still embracing her femininity, because you can be feminine and still achieve things.
