I just felt like drawing some skellies last night. I had a lot of fun, so I’ll be doing this again. :3 I’ve been meaning to draw Paper Crane and Zigzag for a while now, so I’m glad I got around to it, even if they’re just simple doodles. 10/10 would draw again
Uncle Asy, Kid!Fresh, Kid!Decans (Momma CQ) and Zigzag @alainaprana
It always baffles me what people claim as “historically accurate” for ye olde fantasy fiction while completely ignoring all the cool shit that actually did exist and negates their misconception that everyone was Gross™ and unkempt because Reasons.
Like all y'all realize we’ve had soap for a while, right, and perfumed oils?
I mean fuck me, we have evidence of the Egyptians as far back as Cleopatra (and likely before) styling their nails (rich and poor!) bright vibrant RED hues using tinted oils and henna.
We’ve got evidence of unisex nail tints and adornments from the Ming Dynasty including but not limited to kohl, vegetable dyes and literal actual gold dust gelled together with egg whites and bees wax. Not to mention actual mother fucking tooth brushes dating from the late 1400s and the well known “chew brushes” from before then.
But sure. Rough mannered white dude takes a piss behind a tree and makes a comment about wining and whoring as he does up his ‘britches’, and all your women just expect to be brutalized 24/7 while lamenting the stench because nobody bathes.
Yep, sure sounds like mediocre white dude fantasy to me.
This is a SUPER Weird daily, and I know its really, really rough; but its already taken so much time XD
A while back, I was asked what kohls abilities would be, and I threw some together really quickly. The Ultimate waas kind of jokey and silly, but I said that it was single target execute that the damage scaled on gold on hand.
Technically since Nasus himself is a bit of a legendary figure throughout the Shuriman Wastes, his axe could be well considered an artifact. Upon his return to the Capital City after Azir raised it from the sands, Nasus would have absolutely been targeted by a sticky-fingered archeologist.
I like to think that in his time away from Shurima, Nasus did not turn into a completely bitter old doggo; and gives Kohl a little bit of leeway thanks to his pestering of Renekton.
I haven’t a name for the Daarkin weapon. Thinking of a more traditional implement to latch on to Kohl wasn’t difficult, but figuring out how to implement it on a character that uses pretty much only uses a unique piece of tech. Ultimately I decided that I had to play the limbo of low-tech. :V
“You could never imagine what I want to do with you. Even here and now, I’m just…”
“Okay, I don’t want to talk with you anymore.” Cecilia turned her back to him and covered her ears. Then, Gregory appeared in front of her and smiled like he was the happiest mammal on heart. “Don’t look at me like that” she grumped.
“Can I at least kiss you?”
Nothing to say here, just a little fanfiction about Gregory and his bride-to-be Cecilia. It’s settled about 20-25 years before the events narrated in Black Jack. Hope you’ll like it! As usual, credits to @rem289 for the beautiful sketch!
Kohl Pots (alabaster). In ancient Egypt kohl pots were used for storing cosmetics, the residues of which remain inside these jars. Middle Kingdom, ca. 2055-1650 BC. Now in the Royal Albert Memorial Museum, Exeter, Devon.
“You two… I still don’t know if you get along very well or hate each other. Which is it?”
Jack shrugged. “Half ‘n half, I suppose. Overall, we sort of… communicate.”
“You’d make a great duo.” Kohle called him over; then, when Jack was close enough, he pointed out the weasel Cynthia was questioning. “She’s got the dialectics you lack, and you have a self-confidence she can only dream of. You complete each other.”
“We fight each other” Jack replied. “Quite often, actually. I think she despises me for some reason.”
“She doesn’t, trust me. Cynthia is just a little… uncooperative? And shy, terribly shy.”
‘Shy? Walker?’ Jack frowned. “With all due respect, colonel… I wouldn’t call Walker shy not even by mistake. As for uncooperative, though, I think it suits her very well.”
