For all those people that constantly ask “is using a reference cheating?”
No, it’s not. THEY’RE THERE, USE THEM. Using a reference is not tracing, it’s cool.
Every freaking artist in this world and in the past used references to study how the anatomy of a human works, how an apple looks like and so on. You can’t draw immediately out of no where just because you pretend to be an artist. It’s not magic. It’s hard and long work.
And a little reminder: Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Rafael and many more artists in the renaissance used human references from their daily life to make the master pieces which we know now.

water is fucked up because you need it to live and then it drowns you just because it can
Oxygen’s even more fucked up because you need it to process your most basic functions and from the very first breath you take, it is already working on oxidizing literally every part of you. We spend our whole lives being broken down by oxygen, one chemical reaction at a time.

A goddess of childbirth and fertility, depicted as a frog, or a woman with the head of a frog. According to one tradition, she was the wife of Khnum, the creator god of Abu (Elephantine). He created each person on his potter’s wheel, and she breathed life into them before they were placed in their mother’s womb. Pregnant women wore amulets depicting Heqet for protection, and during the Middle Kingdom ritual ivory knives and clappers inscribed with her name were used to ward off evil during childbirth. She could also bring on labour and offer protection during labour.
Heqet was depicted as a frog because, to the Egyptians, the frog was a symbol of life and fertility, since millions of them were born after the annual inundation of the Nile.
