Don’t feel too bad. Whenever I make a fleur-de-lis, I have to be constantly looking at a ref pic. Also, you have dainty hands. :)
at least fleur de lys is easier to draw than the maple leaf?? dammit canada why so complicated. You should’ve seen my german roommates’ hands! She got so damn perfectionist with her fleur de lys, it looked beautiful
hahahaha my hands are so fat and pudgy, I always bite my nails and I have TERRIBLE TERRIBLE hangnails this year (I think its because of my job… working with files? sob)
at work we were talking about languages and parents keeping their mother tongue and teaching it to their kids
and I mentioned how I wish my mother kept her Polish going so she could’ve taught me because the only word she taught me was “paskudny” (although I was taught to say it pas-gou-da or something orz orz) and
Dimitri started laughing before I could explain
and he said in Russian its similar to Polish, it means Bastard, and in Polish it means ugly
;u; just … bububuu my work gives me language feels
What I kind of like about my job is that I get to see a bunch of different passports from around the world.
So far, its been a lot of south and central american countries, some middle and east asian, hungarianm romanian, russian and lithuanian … they all have a pretty simple theme right?
Then there’s the SUPER FLASHY SHIT TON OF COLOURED INK american one … if I had one, I wouldn’t want stamps or visas to ruin the pretty pictures ;3;
