30 Days of Female Awesome Challenge

Day Twenty-Eight: Favorite female writer (television, books, movies, etc.)

More people need to know about Angela Carter.  There are several reasons for this- she did dark and sexual fairy tales before they were cool and better than anyone else has, she wrote a nonfiction coherant analysis of the Marquis de Sade’s writing in relation to feminism that wasn’t just throwing up her hands and giving up, she blurred the lines of magical realism in a manner comparable to Borges- but to readers of this blog, an incentive I’d like to add is that she’s one of the best writers of gothic short stories I’ve ever found.

Her most famous work is The Bloody Chamber, the aforementioned fairy tale collection (the movie that was loosely based on it is The Company of Wolves, and I command you all to watch it,) but I’d recommend you get Burning Your Boats, which collects all her short fiction.  The fairy tales are there, as well as historical fantasy, deadly puppet-women, sex comedies, werewolves, vampires, sinister circuses, days in the life of Lizzie Borden, and a hauntingly grotesque take on 120 Days of Sodom from the victims’ point of view.  Her work isn’t for the faint of heart (or, at times, for those impatient with whimsy) but I’m dying to make more people as in love with her as I am.

It’s hard to break a bond that has years behind it. it’s not easy to just disconnect from someone you connected deeply with at one point. It’s easy for others to tell you to get over it because their not the ones dealing with it. No matter how hard you try to find happiness there will always be scars and memories from the past that will haunt you, getting to a point of sanity where it only feels like a small burden is the real challenge

Pokemon Type challenge - Psychic

Mewtwo, but film version only. the only pokemon that got close to killing ash. ugh, Mewtwo finish him off again!! RJ palmer (arvalis) has done a stunning Mewtwo, that i cant really say id want to change on, with the exception of the face (as shown) so i thought id go for him in armour. the colouring kinda ruined it. but here :) here’s my favourite psychic type.

The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim - Realism Challenge!

Hey everyone! I recently started a new playthrough of Skyrim as a Breton Scholar, and really wanted to immerse myself in the game. I’m not too sure if this has been done before, but I figured I’d post my own little challenge here. Although there’s no true way to “beat” the challenge, it’s still a fun way to play and to immerse yourself in the game.

The Top 3 Rules

• No manual saving. You may only rely on auto save. You can manipulate the character menu save to whichever time you like in Gameplay settings.

• No fast traveling. Trek your way across the world, see what your character sees! Experience the world of Skyrim to its fullest!

• No on-screen quest markers. You should be able to disable these in your Gameplay settings.

Hard Mode Rules

• If you die, you die. Delete the character, and start again.

• Do not do the main questline. Do not become the Dragonborn. Don’t use shouts.

• Set difficulty to “Master”. This is pretty much a given if you want a true challenge.

If you have any questions, or anything you’d like to me add to the challenge, feel free to send me an ask! Enjoy your adventure in Skyrim, folks!


Realism Challenge #3: Playing Card (You must see / İzlemelisin)

Kim Soo Hyun is the model of this drawing XD I’ve found a way to better draw faces for portraits, simply make a rectangle and flesh out the lines of the sides of the face.. I found that drawing the ears first makes it easier to determine where to place the rest of the features, also, I know I’m not really good enough at portraits to teach others what to do, these are simply just my observations over the short period of time, I’ve been practising it XD
