which storyboard artist's way of drawing Steven do you like the most?

It’s a close call between Joe and Colin (although I love Jeff’s Steven too) … but I’m gonna have to go with Colin on this one.

He’s a newer storyboard artist – having only boarded 8 episodes – but he’s already stamped his mark on the series for me.

He does an AMAZING job at exaggerating character body language and expressions to emphasis the comedy of the scene.

But what sells it for me is just how accurately he portrays emotion in body language and expression. It’s so beautiful and visceral and cathartic, and there’s no scenes that have moved me quite as deeply as the ones he’s boarded have.

I highly recommend keeping an eye out for the episodes he boards. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every single one of them and I think he deserves more attention.

Can we take a moment to thank Orphan Black promo team today?

Early morning of March 22 (EST), we were all met with the sad realization that:

And of course the Clone Club was sad. 

Like REALLY SAD.

But then, 5 hours after the filming wrap up, the @orphanblack​ promo team released the gorgeous photo spread of Season 5 teaser stills:

Which included this:

And the rest of the day went like this:


Was this season 5 promo timely planned? You bet. 

But I think it’s important to note that OB helped the Clone Club through a difficult milestone. Instead of mourning the end, we were given a reason to embrace the beginning.

Today I’ve chatted with dozen Clone Clubbers, I have seen tons of posts and reposts of the same images, new fics are being written, fantastic fanart has been created and shared, discussions on the release photos (WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?!!) have begun. There is a sense of renewed camaraderie. This is how we’re going to make it through The Final Trip and OB has got our backs.

Not really in the mood for ecchi mangas rn but I’m bored af, let’s see how bad this is gonna be-

Wait- so THE LADY ARMOR IS ACCURATE AND DOESN’T DO THE BOOB-ARMOR STYLE?! HELLO YES YOU HAVE MY ATTENTIO- no wait I’m not falling for that, could be like that one time with the anime lady’s basketball and have ““cutesy”“ weak moves and no actual powerful action-

*wheezes* ok you have 90% of my attention-

HELLO YES, NOW (combining the points from the previous statement) YOU HAVE

100%

sorry this might be a bit. deep? but idk who to talk to about this. i understand the importance of loving your neighbour as yourself. but what if i don't love myself? i dont know how to do that, and so i don't know how i should be loving my neighbour?

”One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”
“The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
~Mark 12:28-31

I understand what you mean. I’ve been there. There are days I still struggle with self love. And the journey to self love is long and hard. As I’ve talked about before, there are days I can’t help but despise myself. I often thought of this questions in the past and here’s what I decided:

Those verses are telling us to treat others with basic decency. They’re telling us to show our love for others through our deeds. To treat others the way we would want to be treated. The people who were asking Jesus questions earlier in this chapter were trying to catch Him off guard. They wanted to prove that he was imperfect and not the Son of God. They were self-righteous and wanted to prove themselves greater than Jesus. Jesus telling them to love others as themselves meant putting others before themselves. It meant humbling themselves. 
So how do you love your neighbor if you don’t love yourself? Find someone or something that you love the most. How do you treat that person/thing? With gentleness, respect and honor? That is how you should treat your neighbor. If you see your neighbor struggling, do what you can to ease their burden. If you see injustice, stand against it. Serve those around you. Give compliments and mean them. When you see someone, think what Jesus would do. Don’t allow others to abuse and use you, but don’t be afraid to go out of your way to make someone smile. If that means taking a couple extra minutes to truly listen to someone who just needs an ear or helping someone carry something to their car. Think of something that someone has done for you that made you feel extremely happy, cared for, and taken care of.

As for not knowing how to love yourself, look at God’s love for you as an example. Think of the things that He has done for you out of love. God loves you so much that He allowed His son to bear unbelievable pain and embarrassment just to show you how much you matter, how much He loves you, and how much He wants to know you. One of the biggest parts of my healing process has been to take the lies of the world and the lies I’ve told myself and compare them with God’s word. I ask myself why I hate myself.

One of the most popular is “Because I’m insignificant, unimportant, and I always mess up.” Well, in Psalm 139:13-18, David tells me exactly what God thinks of me. And He thinks the same thing about you. God loved you, thought of you, wanted you before you were born. Before anyone else even knew you or knew you would exist.

For you created my inmost being;
   you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise youbecause I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
   your works are wonderful,
   I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
   when I was made in the secret place,
   when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
   all the days ordained for me were written in your book
   before one of them came to be.
How precious to me are your thoughts, God!
   How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them,
   they would outnumber the grains of sand
   when I awake, I am still with you. 

Another popular thought I have is “I’m worthless. Imperfect. Stupid.” In Psalm 84, the Psalmist speaks of how he wishes to dwell in the house of the Lord. 

“How lovely is your dwelling place,
   Lord Almighty!”

We’re told in 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 that WE are God’s temple and that He dwells within US.

“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.”

Therefore “How lovely is your dwelling place” applies to me and you as well. We are lovely. God could dwell anywhere. He could choose any palace or temple, but he chose US because to Him, we are lovely, wonderful, and oh, so worthy.

Those are just a couple examples. I could give you many, many more. But I hope that is a good start. And I hope that answered your question. I’m sorry for such a long response, but this one hit close to home and I feel I needed the reminder myself. 

How to seduce the man you felt a connection with one (1) time, by Viktor Nikiforov:

Travel to his home without a word of warning and announce your intentions with your dick out

Ask him about his relationship status and hint that your dick is out

Tell him that you should sleep together on day one

When the first steps fail, bluntly try to inquire about his sexual orientation to make sure you didn’t misunderstand him during that one (1) connection

Come up with a program for your crush that solely focuses on sexual and erotic love

Be patient when your crush seems to have forgotten that he’s a sexual demon

Make sure to have your dick out and fully visible as much as possible during normal conversations

Approach your (naked) crush from behind (you should also be naked)

Initiate pda as much as possible

Congratulations! You have now seduced your crush, observe our success story:

at first i just wanted to practise expressions but then it got out of hand :D

we need to take a moment to appreciate how viktor nikiforov, inventor of being extra, completely misread yuuri and was firmly believing he would get laid on night one

first, yuuri basically barges into the room where viktor is minding his business and relaxing after his long travel

so he just sees that like: oh great! so you’re just as eager for this as i am? better bless you with a display of my hot bod yuuri i can’t stop thinking about you since the banquet i’m desperate

then all we know is that yuuri screams (same tbh) and then we get this bit of information on the next episode:

so they barely spoke??? yuuri fainted and woke up when viktor was napping??? we’ll never know

but then viktor wakes up, exuding extra realness:

VIKTOR YOU LITERALLY JUST HAD DINNER YOU JUST SLEEP AND EAT HOW DO YOU EVEN MAINTAIN THAT PERFECT BODY

or maybe it’s just hungry for dick which all things considered is a possibility

sO WHILE HE GETS HIS HUNGER SATED HE JUST ROASTS OUR BEST BOY

ouch, vitya, that was harsh??? but it’s also important to remember we get a lot of examples that show viktor isn’t really savvy when it comes about reading people and that he’s capable of delivering harsh truths with a hear-shapped smile on his face

BUT NO!!! YA BOY VITYA IS NOT DONE, as soon as they get some alone time he tries to drop some questionable hints

oh yuuri i’m so sorry i had to be like that earlier, i’m just going for angry coach on the streets, passionate lover in the sheets

which,,,,you know…

AND YET VIKTOR IS JUST LIKE “NAH IT’LL BE FINE HE’S JUST PLAYING SHY/HARD TO GET THERE’S NO WAY TO REFUSE THIS HOT SLAV BODY” AND HE FIRMLY BELIEVES YUURI WILL GO FULL HOMO WITH HIM THAT SAME NIGHT 

HE EVEN BRINGS HIS PILLOW I LOVE THIS MAN SO MUCH??

if anything viktor nikiforov is a symbol of perseverance and has unshakeable confidence in what he does, bless him
