A simple PSA, lest your tail-sporting character look like they’re walking around with a really long poop hanging out of their pants.

That doesn’t look right though. Unless the tail your drawing isn’t a continuation of the spine (which a tail is by definition) it wouldn’t be that high… your tail bone, the sacral and coccygeal plexus sections of the spine, do in fact go down the crack. Having it that high would be anatomically incorrect…

Sorry this is a little messy, I hope it illustrates why the way people tend to draw tails is not wrong.

if you want to see tails coming out of buttholes I can dredge up some art of that, but the tail as drawn here isn’t it.

4 Legal Ways To Get Free Textbooks.

1. Open Culture:  Not a large a selection, but high quality texts. If you just want to skim a book to brush up on a course you took in ninth grade, download one of these. I have yet to be disappointed.

2. Book Boon: Provides free college-level textbooks in a PDF format. Probably the widest range of subjects on the web. The site is also pretty.

3. Flat World Knowledge: The worlds largest publisher of free and open college textbooks. Humanitie texts are particularly difficult to come by, this site has a great selection in all disciplines.

4. Textbook Revolution:  Some of the books are PDF files, others are viewable online as e-books, or some are simply web sites containing course or multimedia content.

5. Library Pirate: I’ve always had an addiction to torrent based pirating. When this site opened a few months ago, I went a little overboard. After dropping two hundred on a paperback spanish textbook, I downloaded the ebook version illegally. I also got a great Psyc text i’m obsessed with.  It will be interesting to see how this site grows- they already have a great selection. 

College bookstores completely rip off their students, so ALWAYS reblog free textbooks!
