Guess who’s been listening to too much swing 8D I watched some videos of people dancing the swing, and I realised Amelia has that curl so I added more (resembles the popular spit curl in the 20s). Went a step further and gave her a tux and some sick dancing moves ye (they’re reffed)

Inner Self 

Seth always try to communicate with his Inner self, which is his lion self. To do this, he has to be extremely concentrated and preferably alone. That’s why he goes to this place, so he can meet with who he truly is. His essence. He does it very often to try to remember who he used to be,(please read here to understand his story), but even if he remember everything when he turns into a lion, there is no use when he is trying to talk to his inner self awake, using his human carcass. When a bond is broken there is no other way to be unbroken.

But look how happy he is when is talking to his Inner Self :3 mama loves ya, baby
I had no idea when I started drawing this that an extremely similar place to what imagined existed,BUT LOOK AT THIS, so, of course, I made use of it. =u= I added the milky way and the snowy mountain after I looked at this picture.
So, Seth peaceful place is in Lost Lake (look at this name *-*), Oregon.

Les « végétariens » peuvent aussi incorporer, comme tout le monde, et symboliquement, du vivant, de la chair et du sang - d'homme ou de Dieu. Les athées aussi, ils aiment encore « manger l'autre ». S'ils aiment, du moins, car c'est la tentation de l'amour même.

Dancers: The Nicholas Brothers 

From: Southern born, Philly grown

Fayard and Harold Nicholas were American choreographers, dancers and actors that become renowned in history as the world’s most famous (and some would say the best) tap dancers in the world.

Known as The Nicholas Brothers, they were born to their father whom was a drummer and mother whom was an orchestra instructor. After years of being surrounded by music and exposed to African-American vaudeville acts, the brothers created a style of flashy-acrobatic tap dancing that set them above and beyond the rest. By 1932, Harold at 11 and Fayard at 18, became featured acts at Harlem’s infamous Cotton Club, in the vibrant era of the Harlem Renaissance.  

Their career inevitably led them to Broadway, world touring, choreographing, tap dance instructors at Harvard and teachers to the legends like Micheal Jackson and Debbie Allen. They also had an extensive presence in cinema, but due to racial prejudice could only appear as guests and never featured in plots. They appeared in over 45 films. It was during this time that Harold met and married actress Dorothy Dandridge. They were together for nine years. 

Harold passed away in 2000 at the age of 71. Followed by his brother who laid to rest in 2006 at the age of 91. 

[…] il y a deux manières d'observer les êtres. L'une consiste à les regarder d'un œil critique, peut-être juste, mais sévère ; c'est l'attitude des indifférents. L'autre est mêlée de tendresse et d'humour ; elle voit, elle aussi, les fautes, mais elle en sourit et ne les corrige qu'avec douceur et gaieté. C'est l'attitude de l'affection.
—  André Maurois - Lettres à l'Inconnue, Fayard
