ONE MORE PRINT TO GO THEN I CAN

2

Just some quick background scene mockups, personally I Iike the second one the most, but will do some more later and see what else I can come up with.

The final will be printed on massive A0 size stock for the RahCon exhibition held in October (Western Australia) so it’s going to become very detailed. I need to make sure to set a solid game plan for it before I launch into details.

Also google sketchup is the best thing cuz I can’t draw buildings for shite, will also need to check some models out for the cityscape later.

Anyone got any suggestions for the background/colours I can try out?

Lion is a half-gem (sort of)

I’ve made a lot of theories about Lion in my time as a fan theorist. Hopefully this will be the last one left standing after July’s impending Stevennuke obliterates the fandom in a fusion-powered shockwave of pure feels. Time is a-wastin’ so let’s get right to the evidence.

Right off the bat, who’s Lion’s gem “parent”? Note I mark that phrase with print-air-quotes (also called “quotes”), there’s a reason for that, but more on that later. I’m sure you can all guess who I’m going to say, but I’ll say it anyway: Pink Diamond

What evidence do I have to support besides a derisive Duuuuhhhh…? A fuckton, that’s what I have!

Well first off there’s the giant pink diamond the the horizon of Lion’s private warp space.That’s a big clue, but it’s not even close to the only one. Besides the obvious overwhelming power and Lion’s thematic connections. In addition to being a giant cat associated in pop culture with royalty, Lion has some pretty obvious connections to the two most famous Pink Diamonds in pop culture

The obvious one is the Pink Panther Diamond, named after the pink panther cartoon character who was literally a fucking pink panther. Now, you’ve probably noticed that Lion is a lion and not a panther.

You’ve noticed wrong, shame on you.

In biology the word panther refers to two things: the panther Species (aka Cougar or Mountain Lion) and the panther Genus: panthera, which includes panthera leo, also known as the African Lion!

The second most well-known pink diamond is the most expensive gemstone ever sold: the Pink Star Diamond. Now say it with me, what does lion’s mane look like?

A Pink Star!

Okay, moving on. Let’s talk about Lion’s mortal “parent”

Greg’s cat

Prior to Steven’s birth, Greg owned a cat while he lived in beach city. It’s carrier appeared in both Laser Light Canon and Maximum Capacity, alongside a painting of a cat presumably painted by Greg and Amethyst’s old friend Vidalia.

Now, I should probably state the obvious: I don’t think Pink Diamond magically survived the war and had sex Greg’s pet. That’s dumb, and unpleasant to think about given that she was over 20 feet tall and his penis was covered with tiny sharp hooks

No, I think Pink Diamond became part of Greg’s cat through a mystical and arcane mechanic known to obscure occultist sects as “cats eating random shit off the floor”

In Frybo Pearl is seen performing routine inventory of her collected gem shards. This seems a pretty mind-numbing and pointless task considering the sheer number of gem shards they must have collected over the centuries. Taking inventory wouldn’t be routine if gem shards hadn’t gone missing before

So suppose Greg’s Cat popped Pink Diamond’s bubble and ate the shards, (or more likely, Rose fed them to him and didn’t tell Pearl) What could that do? As we learned in Together Breakfast, gem shards can take refuge in organic matter (the evil spirit scroll having been confirmed to have been painting with ground up gem shards) and the results can be monstrous all on their own

Furthermore, in Giant Woman, we met a gem monster who who became unusually powerful by eating gem shards and smaller gems like the heaven beetle and even Steven

It’s safe to say that this is possible, but what about the evidence?

Well, we have plenty: The most important being that Pearl never knew about Lion. I don’t think Rose would have been able to keep training a gem monster a secret, at the very least Pearl would have wandered off after her if she saw her sneaking out. This implies that Lion had to have been tame from the moment he was created, which wouldn’t be possible for a gem monster, but would be if he were a cat who knew rose and who had eaten gem shards.

That “he” is important too, since male gems have been stated again and again not to exist (aside from Steven). The show and the crew have been known for being famously progressive, I don’t think they would just have the characters repeatedly misgender Lion if he was actually a woman.

Beyond that however, there are meta reasons that further back up this theory. In the first episode, we learn that the popular treat Cookie Cat has been taken off the market and replaced with Lion Lickers. As far as these things go that’s actually some pretty ham-handed symbolism.

Also of note is the fact that while Lion normally only seems to tolerate people touching him as long as they’re riding alongside Steven. Lion has absolutely no problem letting Greg lie on him in the second intro

Oh, but the funniest thing of all is where Lion’s name comes from.

Anyone want to guess?

Lion is named after Rebecca Sugar’s cat!

hello ms emi! i want to start selling prints, keychains, etc. online but i don't know where to start. since you run a storenvy store, i was curious where do you get your merch printed? and do you have any advice for someone just starting out as an online vendor? tysm for reading this and have a nice day!

hey! sorry i didn’t get this until now TUMBLR DOESN’T NOTIFY ME ANYMORE so i have to manually check inbox when i remember x(

i get my prints at a local minuteman press, maybe you have one near you! i have also used fireball printing while i was in the east coast. if you are doing smaller print runs you can also go to your local staples/office max/etc but they are usually more expensive. i get small prints done at walgreens/target using their photo service. 

for cosmetic bags and stuff i used artscow.com, but i haven’t ordered in a while just bc the profit margin is much lower than prints. i know some people have a more direct and cheaper way to print them overseas but it’s a bigger hassle so i haven’t bothered. 

for advice hmm, i’m still pretty bad at online selling tbh lol x( i know people who print shipping labels and stuff from the site/paypal but i messed up the one time i tried so i haven’t since, i just take a batch to the post office each time and let them hate me lol. i charge cheaper for prints online than at cons since shipping rates have been steadily rising each year. it’s ridiculous now for international shipping.

i used to get shipping supplies from uline since they’re the cheapest and biggest BUT they donate to homophobic causes so here’s a good post with alternatives: http://vitupera.tumblr.com/post/79472710782/

hope this helped! 

seventeen as inside jokes i have with my best friend

seungcheol- oppa material am i right (  ͡° ͜ʖ  ͡°) 

jeonghan- snatched. SHOOK

I JUST HATE THAT HE STOLE MY WORDS

IT’S NOT FAIR

IT’S NOT FAIR THAT I HAVE TO SIT IN THE REMNANTS OF ALL HIS HALF WAY LOOKS, HIS ACCIDENTAL TOUCHES, AND MAKE HIS EVERY MOVE TO BE SOMETHING MORE THAN IT WAS BECAUSE I’M SO DESPERATE TO HOLD ON TO ANYTHING I CAN

I HATE FEELING LIKE I’M CLOSED, LIKE HE STUCK HIS ARM IN TO BE BRAVE BUT DIDN’T LIKE THE FEELING OF BEING LATCHED ON, OF BEING ADORED FOR HAVING THE COURAGE TO EXPLORE WHAT NO ONE ELSE HAS TOUCHED

IM AFRAID THAT I SCARED HIM OFF

AND NOW I SIT AND THINK, WHAT IS THERE TO WRITE ABOUT WITH HIS FUCKING FINGER PRINTS ALL OVER MY WALLS. WHAT’S THERE TO LET GO WHEN I GAVE IT ALL, OTHER THAN THE MEMORY AND GOD, WHY WOULD I WANT TO FORGET

IT’S NOT FAIR. I HAVE ALL THIS LOVE AND DESIRE AND NOWHERE TO PUT IT DOWN, NO ACCEPTING HANDS TO EXCITEDLY HOLD THEM, TO MAKE THEM TREMBLE AND AWAKEN AND STIR AND 

FOR ONCE FEEL ACKNOWLEDGED AND WANTED

AN: Sure thing. You found a place?
A: Yes! It’s.. perfect Angie, I can’t wait to show you. Also, I realised Sully hasn't organised a honeymoon. Not that we need one.. but..
AN: You two have to have a honeymoon. You need the time alone.
A: Well, that’s what I thought too.. I looked into a couple places, but I need some help with bookings and money.. fine print stuff.. and we’ll also need someone to look after the boys.
AN: Say no more! Consider me your personal baby sitter.
A: Really?!
AN: Of course! I insist! Now, lets sort out this honeymoon over breakfast shall we? Before your husband wakes up.
A: You’re the best big sister!

This is what happens when my brain shuts down for words, but I can’t sleep?

@hayjbsg​ likes my Team Miloe shirt, I upload the stuff I made 2 years ago to a shop.

@thestateofardadreaming​ mentions the Team Charloe stuff…and my word-drained brain says, “Oh…let’s play in Photoshop.

And suddenly, I have a whole thing set up on CafePress with Team Miloe, Team Charloe and Team CM2 stuff (and Team Marlie in the works): Revolutionary Ships

These are just 10 of them–there are more in the shop. Pretty much any design can go on anything–coffee mugs, keychains, etc., and if you’d like something in a different color/tweaked, I can do that, too! Most of them are already in one light/one dark option (I didn’t upload all of those). Some of the pictures are fuzzy in the samples for some reason, but they should print just fine, as they’re all the correct size/resolution. I think it’s just their transfering it over dual images online or something–if you click the design you’ll see it clearly!

My fourth year vending at Bronycon has come and gone so fast, but it was definitely one of the best years I’ve had! My prints and commissions were received wonderfully and the best were the fans of my comic who would come and visit! I can only see things going up from here, but it’ll take a lot of hard work along the way!

This was also the first year that I had the opportunity to hang out and make friends with the other vendors (and meet online friends!) I had dinner with @ask-wiggles (who I also got a pic with before I forgot!) @askpiratedash, @greensalamander and many more! My anxiety had me worried that I was annoying people, but I’m trying to be more confident and trust that people really do like being around me. So thanks you guys, for giving me that opportunity! I can’t wait to see some of you again at Trotcon!

Contemplating checking out a new Japanese grocery store tomorrow morning before the heat comes in. The hope is that they’ll have new cheap Dragon Ball stuff, I’ve had pretty good luck with that at other stores. There’s at least three in the area that I haven’t been to, and plenty more in I expand my territory a little.
This one is just a couple blocks from a really good one I’ve been to before, maybe I’ll get ambitious and hit both. We’ll have to see what the budget allows. Which won’t be much since I just spent $250+ on vet bills, and there’s more where that came from on the way. But one of the reasons I like getting my DB crap at the supermarkets is that I can pretty reliably find good things in the two to ten buck range, since they carry the gum/candy blind box thingees. I’ve gotten a sweet Beerus keychain, lots of those sparkly standees, that gorgeous Frieza print, etc from these.

Of course, going anywhere sucks when the mid day temp is gonna be over 100F and you’re ATGATT, but whatever. I am hardcore LOL

Store updates

Okay so I think I am gunna go with storenvy for my store hosting, it seems pretty easy for what I want to do

I’ve got three finished pages of stickers–send out my first page and will get them on the 20th to see how they look/stick

I’ve got 2 sketchbooks completely finished and 4 more in the works–my first one has been sent to the printer, waiting on the proof to see how they look printed

Things will probably be coming out in small waves at first, sketchbooks are probably going to start at a limited run. They’re gunna have a range of about 24-30 something pages and will probably be around $10 a pop not including shipping. Once I get the stickers in and can see them in person I’ll decide on those prizes–stickers are definitely gunna keep growing in numbers especially since I’m doing Pokemon stickers and right now I’ve basically just done my faves lol

I’ll let you guys know when things are up and available!

MY PRINTS ARE COMING AHHH (>∀<☆) I’m so excited and can’t wait to have them in my hands! (^ヮ^) I’ll take pictures when they arrive~ (´。• ᵕ •。`) ♡

“As much as I enjoy the compliment, there still seems to be something outside my power. I tried doing something about your purple hair and fear of purple hair, but it seems that was caused by a higher power. I can do this, however…” A metal whiskey flask with a rabbit printed on the side materialized next to the monster lord. “It’s strong enough that it would knock Ilias herself on her ass in one swig. It should also give you plenty of energy for a while, so you don’t need to go hunting or eat through your supplies in that state…” 


Pausing, she gave it some more thought. “Don’t feel obligated to drink that if you don’t want it though. Last thing I wanna do is force it on you.” 

I want to take this image to a print shop and pay them real money to print out like…50,000 business cards with this image on it and nothing more.

That way as my child gets older and she begins asking me things like “mom can I go to my friends house?” or “mom can I do blah blah blah this weekend?”, I can just slowly hand her one of these cards when I have to tell her no and then slowly walk away without a single word.

(SECA) You're review is taking a bit longer since my week got crazy and I kinda messed up my back BUT I though you would like to know that your story printed out (one-sided) is 317 pages long so far. Like holy crap. I printed it so I can work on it when I go out and it ate all of my ink. I had to write in half of chapters 1-3 by hand. xD The stack is like an inch and a half thick. If not more.

ho. lee. shit. that long and they haven’t even banged yet??  god what am i doing
