actually they are in the same color

anonymous asked:

your art is so lovely and pretty and i would love to be able to draw like you! i was wondering how you picked out colours for line art though? i've noticed that it's not the same colour throughout the whole drawing, and i can't figure out a) how you do it and b) how you get it to be so nicely complimentary of the other colours you use

Hi and thanks a lot! It’s actually really simple! It’s basically just a mix of colored lines and black lines! I usually only use black for the outlines though. I really like doing this because it adds some dimension while still being subtle. As for how to do it you just need to create a new layer on top of your lineart and clip it to it. Then you just add color and it won’t go outside of the lines.

  •  The 1st picture is what the artwork looks like with all black lines.
  • The 2nd picture shows what it looks like after I’ve colored some of the lines. 

As for how I pick the colors it’s really simple too! Just pick a darker shade of what’s inside the lines. So brown for skin,dark green for leaves and so on. (btw the artwork shown here is going up tonight,it’s already in my queue,it’s supposed to match that other witch I posted the other day)

Here’s also a pic of the layers in case you’re still confused on how to do it:

i don't wanna seem like an ignorant idiot but how is SU racist? I've never noticed it before. If you have examples or anything, that would be nice to see as well.

  • concrete
  • relegating garnet (a black coded woman) to the emotional support role for pretty much everyone else (but especially pearl, who is literally white)
    • on that note, pearl doing the gem equivalent of rape by deception, garnet being so emotionally shaken that she literally split apart, and then pearl guilt-tripping garnet into forgiving her
      • everyone treating garnet like she was wrong for being upset (and sapphire having to swallow her anger and disgust for the sake of re-fusing into garnet)
  • concrete
  • the human zoo who was full of sexy childlike “diverse” people of color (even though spending centuries breeding with the same lot people would lead to a lot of homogenization)
    • treating the human zoo like it was anything but a crime against humanity, but especially treating it like its some wonderland thats actually better for the humans than freeing them
  • concrete
  • sugilite being some sort of uncontrollable beast just because shes a fusion of two nonwhite-coded gems 
  • uncle andy and his racist remarks
  • concrete
  • connie being a “bookish nerd” whose life is improved by her white savior (steven)
  • amethyst in her “chola” suit in the concept art
  • concrete
  • bismuth being treated like a savage for wanting to liberate the gems

thats off the top of my head

Tiefling headcanons

•They are as tall as humans on average but tend to be a little heavier because of their higher bone density as well as the mass of their tail and horns
•Tieflings with non-human coloration (red or blue skin, solid colored eyes) are more common than those with more human colors
•You can see the pupil in a solid colored tiefling eye if you look closely. It just appears the same color as the sclera.
•Tieflings don’t have eyebrows. Their horns form a brow ridge which is bony and rigid. (This may be actual canon but idk)
•Tieflings’ tails can be unadorned, or they can have fins or spines, or they can be partially or completely furred, or they can grow hair just like the tiefling grows on their head.
•Like that of a cat, a tiefling’s tail likes to form into a spiral shape naturally. Nervous tieflings often wrap their tail around one of their legs and don’t notice they’re squeezing their own leg like a boa constrictor until it starts to hurt.
•If a tiefling fathers or gives birth to a child, the child will also be a tiefling. This is because of tieflings’ infernal heritage. Their bloodline is inherently cursed, no matter how diluted it may be. There are no cases in recent recorded history of a tiefling’s biological child being not a tiefling
•There are not a lot of tieflings. They make up like less than ten percent of the population, tops. If not for the fact that they breed true (see previous point), they would probably have died out naturally, considering that a pretty significant amount of tieflings do not have any children in their lives.
•When two tieflings meet, they often kinda touch their own horns without realizing it, unconsciously comparing the shape of the other tiefling’s horns to their own. This is so common that some communities joke that this is tiefling culture.
•Related to the previous point: tieflings don’t really have a cohesive culture. They have sort of been in a diaspora since their very conception as a species, and they are few and far between enough that no unified culture has yet developed.
•Tiefling racism is real. A lot of times, tieflings don’t even trust each other upon meeting, because they have unwittingly bought into stereotypes about their own race. It’s a bummer but what can u do.

Hoe Tips: School and Studying

I’m currently in PA school with close to a 4.0 GPA, and with college and back to school starting up, I’m dropping some tips for y'all. A hoe gotta get bomb ass grades if ya want a bomb ass career and to be successful af. So let’s get it✨

1. Write out your notes. Have two notebooks: one for when you’re in class (this one can be messy) and one for at home (this one is the neater one, for color coding, formatting, and all that organizational jazz). Writing things out is proven to enhance memorization 7X more than just reading is.

2. Have a go-to format for your notes. Numbering, bullet points, whatever floats your boat.

3. Type out your notes. I use Google Drive, because it automatically saves all your shit, and you can access your notes via your Google account literally anywhere. Typing out your notes does the same thing writing them out does, as far as helping you review the material.

4. Use Quizlet. Quizlet is a free flashcard website/app that allows you to type in all of your flashcards and definitions, and gives you review options like matching, testing, flashcard mode, and more. This shit made me my high schools valedictorian, no lie.

5. Keep your old quizzes and tests. Often times, teachers will ask similar questions on finals.

6. For math-based subjects, always always always show your work in your notes. I try to explain each step for a math problem in the margins of my notes, and generalize how to do each problem at the end.

7. Do practice problems consistently.

8. For my college hoes: never take an 8 am class. You think you can do it because you did it for high school, but I promise you will regret it. If there’s no avoiding the 8 am lecture, bring coffee and skip any makeup/hair that day. Sleep is too important.

9. Make flashcards. The night before my exams, I like to try and fit everything I need to know for a specific chapter/topic onto one flashcard, in order to weed out main ideas.

10. For essays, easybib.com is amazing with free citations to avoid any plaigiarism or incorrect bibliographies.

11. Rent👏your👏textbooks👏. Unless your teacher specifically requires you BUY it, you likely won’t need the actual textbook. Buying access codes for the book online is hundreds of dollars cheaper.

12. If you do get your textbooks, a lot of them have chapter summaries at the end of each chapter. Be sure to write out/type out/review those summaries.

13. For science labs, if you are allowed, take pictures of any models or slides you need to know for your exams. Pretty much all labs won’t let you take pictures of cadavers or animal dissections, but plastic models and microscope slides should be fine.

14. If you have a question, ASK YOUR TEACHER. It is better to look stupid in class and get your clarification, than to look stupid when you get your exam back and actually have it count against your grade.

15. Do study groups. I have two nursing friends in some of the same classes as me, and we’d always meet up before exams to go over the material. We would bring dry erase markers and map out shit in empty classrooms, taking turns explaining shit to each other until we nailed it.

16. Try to teach the material. Like I said in #15, study groups are great for this. By teaching the material out loud, you are subconsciously reviewing it yourself. This is a HUGE help.

17. Take breaks. You cannot exhaust yourself and expect to still recall anything you learned.

18. I know everyone does this and there’s no avoiding it sometimes, but DO NOT CRAM. Gradual learning is most effective.

19. Have one day every week where you don’t do any schoolwork. You need time to reboot.

20. Use your phone’s calendar/task checklist app for all major assignments, due dates, exam dates, study plans, appointments, etc. Set reminders as needed.

21. Charge your phone in another room while studying. No distractions.

22. Rainymood.com is a free website that plays a 30 minute loop of rain sounds. It helps me focus like nothing else, especially in my loud ass household, and every time the loop stops and replays, I know to take a break between 30 minute study sessions.

23. Feel distracted at home when studying? Try studying in a library, cafe, or even at school. I find that going somewhere else to study actually forces me to pay attention to what I’m doing, for some reason.

24. Reward yourself for good grades. Buy yourself a slice of pizza or a new highlight, have a netflix marathon, go to a party, or take a nap. Whatever conveys a job well done, do it. It’ll make all that studying feel that much greater when it’s over, and you’ll have a goal to work towards.

25. Sit in the front of the classroom as often as possible. You’ll be forced to pay attention, be able to actually see the board, hear the instructor better, and you’re more likely to have your questions answered quickly because your teacher will actually see your hand go up.

26. Caffeinate. I prefer tea because it’s healthier, but coffee works too. Ya girl is NOT a morning person, but my morning tea at least helps me pay attention during earlier classes.

27. Keep all of your school shit organized, together, and labelled.

28. Do NOT skip a class just because you’re lazy or don’t feel like going. The temptation is real sometimes, but a hoes gonna be pissed when ya see your participation average decline.

29. This may just be a psychological thing, but I love to use the same colored/brand of pen for all of my notes/assignments/tests. It just makes everything seem more uniform, and I’m able to recall information better.

30. Trouble taking tests? For any multiple choice question, read the question and try to answer it first without reading any of the options. If your answer doesn’t match the options, then use process of elimination to find the best answer. For true/false questions, write out justifications for each answer (you can also do this for multiple choice). You’ll be acing your exams in no time.

31. Chewing gum during class/studying, and chewing that same flavor gum during the exam, has been scientifically proven to boost your memory recall.

32. Literally any time you have the opportunity to do extra credit, DO IT. Cherish that shit.

33. If you aren’t doing so hot in a particular class (literally any math class for me lol), schedule a private meeting with your professor and go over test questions you missed, or topics you didn’t get. If you know your professor is a flop, or can’t get an appointment, meet with a tutor or another professor of that same subject. Sometimes another voice can shed new light on a difficult topic.

34. For essays, readable.io critiques your writing for free based on readability, grade level, formality, tone, grammatical errors, etc. Seriously a life saver.

35. Also thesaurus.com is ya bff for fancier words/phrases to make your writing more eloquent

36. Always make an outline for every essay or project to organize what you want to say. This will keep you on track, and help you work around any quotes or sources in you writing to make sure your writing is hella organized.

That’s all I can think of for now, please please please feel free to add and share. Enjoy those 4.0’s, hoes💞

Save the vampire from his sunshine friends, he’s gonna d i e

SORRY I HAVE TO JUST GET MY SQUEE OUT FOR THE COSTUME DESIGNERS OF WONDER WOMAN

LOOK AT THIS. YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW IMPORTANT THIS IS.

THEY GAVE BOTH MAIN CHARACTERS A HAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NOBODY EVER GIVES HATS TO MAIN CHARACTERS!!!

DISCLAIMER: I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND BC IT CAN BE HARD TO SHOOT CONVERSATIONS WITH A GIANT FEATHERED MONSTROSITY ON YOUR HEAD LIKE AN EDWARDIAN GIBSON GIRL HAT. BUT LISTEN, UNTIL THE 1960S YOU DID NOT LEAVE THE HOUSE WITHOUT A HAT. THAT WAS AS ESSENTIAL AS SAYING PLEASE AND THANK YOU.

AND DIANA’S OUTFIT. I MEAN IT’S NICE. IT PROBABLY COSTS MORE THAN MY ENTIRE WARDROBE AND RENT FOR MY APARTMENT. AND DIANA IS STILL GORGEOUS. BUT IT’S NOT DESIGNED TO MAKE HER LOOK SEXY AT ALL. IT IS DESIGNED TO BE PRACTICAL AND TRUE TO THE TIME PERIOD.

IT’S FUCKING COLD-ASS LONDON IN WW1… AND DIANA IS ACTUALLY DRESSED LIKE IT INSTEAD OF LIKE A FUCKBOY FANTASY?!?!?!

SHE’S WEARING A THICK WOOL COAT!!! AND UNDERNEATH IT SHE IS WEARING A HIGH-COLLARED SHIRT WITH LONG SLEEVES BECAUSE MORE WARMTH. AND IT’S GRAY?!??!?! BECAUSE WHY USE FANCY COLORS ON SOMETHING THAT’S JUST GOING TO GET RAINED ON FIVE MINUTES OUT OF THE STORE?!?!?

AND HER LONG HAIR IS NOT LEFT LOOSE TO FRAME HER FACE IN ATTRACTIVE CURLS, IT’S PUT UP IN A BUN BC THAT IS FASHIONABLE AND PRACTICAL

AND CAN WE ALSO TALK ABOUT HOW MINUS THE SKIRT, DIANA’S BASICALLY WEARING THE SAME THING AS STEVE DOWN TO THE COLOR SCHEME.

AND WHEN STEVE PUTS GLASSES ON DIANA TO TRY AND MAKE HER LESS GORGEOUS, ETTA MAKES FUN OF HIM LIKE MOST OF THE FEMALE AUDIENCE PROBABLY DID LMFAO.

ANYWAY I LOVE THIS MOVIE I WILL SQUEE ABOUT IT MORE LATER

THIS

IS KEITH’S TWIN SISTER.

I already wrote a post on this but MORE EVIDENCE:

Besides her human-like features, their facial similarities, and how fucking AWESOME it would be, we’ve actually already met her before.

Remember this? Yeah, Keef met a mysterious Galra that he fought alongside but who ultimately betrayed him

LET’S TAKE A CLOSER LOOK SHALL WE

HMMMMMMM

HMMMMMMMMMMM

HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

The uniform is EXACTLY the same and given the body shape + coloring, she can’t be the two ladies on the left. So she’s either Galra warrior of the right BUT hooded Galra lady’s weapon seems v different from that small gun (either a sword or a staff or a long sniper gun???) PLUS A LITTLE SMALL DETAIL: Both mysterious Weblum Galra and human-like Galra lady have a touch of orange on their collar.

SO THAT MYSTERIOUS GALRA WAS DEFINITELY GOTH AZULA SO IT’S CLEAR SHE HAS SOME RELATION TO KEITH BECAUSE WHY ELSE WOULD THEY WRITE THAT SCENE??

And given that she was trapped in this uniform, she was already working for Lotor. Keith’s mom is a known associate of the Blade of Marinade so she couldn’t be working for Lotor unless some dramatic af shit went down and changed her loyalties OR she’s in deep cover. But I still think she’s too young and too human looking to be Keef’s mom.

YOU KNOW WHAT EXPLANATION WORKS?

Cowboy Bebop and his furry alien wife have twins. They separate those twins at birth because they take after different parents (lookswise). Keef’s dad abandons him for some unknown reason and maybe Keef’s mom does the same with her daughter?? (Too risky to have a child with the Blade??) Her daughter grows up bullied for her half-human heritage and when another group of half-Galra soldiers come to recruit her, including this charismatic prince, she joins without a second thought., either strongly believing in the mission or not really caring what the mission was just happy to have a place to belong. THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS.

CUE GENERAL VS. PALADIN FIGHT

CUE FIGHT SCENE BETWEEN THE TWINS

CUE KEEF TAKING OUT HIS KNIFE AFTER HIS BAYARD GETS KNOCKED AWAY

CUE HER BEING LIKE WHERE THE FUCK DID YOU GET THAT BECAUSE SHE HAS A SIMILAR KNIFE

CUE THEM BEING OVERJOYED AT HAVING FAMILY (WE’RE ALL MADE UP OF THE SAME FUCKING COSMIC DUST) AND THEN GETTING ALL SAD BECAUSE THEY’RE ON DIFFERENT SIDES AND TECHNICALLY HAVE TO KILL EACH OTHER

CUE HER TRYING TO CONVINCE KEEF TO JOIN THEM AND VICE VERSA

CUE THEM BEING LIKE “DID I JOIN THE RIGHT SIDE??” AND HAVING INTERNAL CONFLICT

CUE THEM UNABLE TO FIGHT EACH OTHER (OR BEING ANGRY AT EACH OTHER AND FIGHTING EXXXTRA HARD TO PROVE THEY CAN)

CUE KEEF BEING LIKE SHES NOT MY SISTER. SHIRO WAS MORE MY REAL FAMILY THAN THIS RANDOM STRANGER FUCK THIS

CUE HIM GETTING ALL DEPRESSED CAUSE HIS FAMILY IS A SHITSHOW

(cue Lance comforting him and telling him it’s great her found his sister because having siblings is great oh wait this is my own self-indulgent fantasy)

and when they finally do make up and become real siblings, can you imagine them being like “so what was mom/dad like??” and the other being like “…well i don’t really know” CUE MY TEARS

gOD THIS IS GOING TO BE SO HEART WRENCHING IM ALL FOR IT. GIVE ME KEEF’S GALRA TWIN SISTER. GIVE ME GALRA LEIA. I NEED IT.

Questions to Ask When: Developing Character Appearance

Hey everyone, Abby here! Today I’m coming at you with something a little different from the usual “advice on a certain topic”; this is something that has a lot to do with development instead. So what I’m going to do is think of as many questions as I can about character appearances and list them all here; hopefully it helps!

The Questions

  • What color are their eyes? 
  • Do they have heterochromia or anything like it?
  • How tall are they? 
  • How much do they weigh?
  • Are the answers to the previous two questions about the same as the average where your character lives?
  • What are your character’s three most prominent features?
  • Which of their features are they the most proud of?
  • Which of them are they most insecure about?
  • What color is their hair?
  • What is their favorite hairstyle? Do they wear it like this daily?
  • How much do they actually care about their hair?
  • Do they enjoy changing the style and color often, or will they wear it the same way their whole lives given the chance?
  • What race (or races) is your character?
  • Do they have any tattoos or scars?
  • How easily do they emote? 
  • Do they have a generally emotional face?
  • Which emotion do they most easily show?
  • Do they enjoy wearing makeup? If yes, do they prefer a more subtle or bold look?
  • Do they enjoy wearing jewelry? If yes, what sort do they prefer (necklace, bracelet, ring, etc.)?
  • How often do they wear makeup or jewelry?
  • Does you character ever wear merchandise for things they like?
  • Are they more likely to be found in a long- or short-sleeved shirt?
  • If your character had the opportunity, would they choose ripped or regular jeans?
  • Do they wear hats often? If yes, which one do they wear the most?
  • Take a look at their wardrobe. Which color is most prominently featured?
  • Still looking at their wardrobe, how would you describe the color scheme: monochromatic, gray-ish, pastels, earth tones, bright colors, or all over the place?
  • What is their favorite article of clothing to wear? Do they wear it more for look or for feel?
  • When choosing their clothes, does your character base their decision on look, feel, or both?
  • What constitutes as pajamas for them? Does it have to be strictly things meant to be pajamas or just anything comfortable enough to sleep in?
  • Your character has nothing to do today; they’re staying at home and nobody super important is going to see them. How are they dressed?

So, I think this should be enough to help you get started on developing your character’s appearance; I hope this helped! If you or anyone else wants to see me cover another topic in my next post, please don’t hesitate to leave a message in my ask. Until next time, much love! <333

All of the posts for Dragon Age 4/Retribution!

GENERAL DETAILS: (ALL VERBATIM FROM 4CHAN SITE) 
>Game takes place primarily in Tevinter but we’ll have missions in the Anderfels, Seheron, Antiva, Deep Roads, and the Fade, etc..
>60% of the game world is represented by the capital city of Minrathous which is 200 times bigger than Denerim in DAO.
>Minrathous will be a open and living city with moving npcs that walk around, buy goods, do busy work,, think of how npc’s acted within Novigrad in the Witcher 3.
>The city will have large temples, statues, large buildings and towers, markets, docks, fountains, giant walls which you can explore and other cool areas like a coliseum and even an aqueduct which you can climb.
>If you hadn’t noticed yet Minrathous will be heavily based on imperial Rome and Constantinople and in lore is the largest city in thedas with nearly 1 million inhabitants. 
>The city is divided into 5 zones/districts with no loading screens to get into each one so it’s all integral.
>The districts include, the noble district which is in the upper/Northmost part of the city set on a hill which will have three different staircases that can get you in and out of the district.
>Within that district you have a smaller district encased in marble walls and only accessed by gate called the Imperial quarter which houses the Imperial Senate house, the Grand Library of Tevinter (lorewise its equivalent to the library of Alexandria and is nearly impossible to get into - there will be a quest dedicated just to that place), Archon’s Palace, the grand temple of Dumat and senatorial mansions.
>The lower half of the city includes includes the market district, the “plebeian/worker class district”, the coliseum district which also includes an academy of magic, the library of minrathous, imperial army headquarters and finally the poor district.
>The streets of Minrathous are all cobbled, the outside walls are large guarded by just as large juggernaut statues which are massive black golems.
>The city has three bridges that connect it to the outside world which you can also explore before being told to turn around.
>The other 40% of the game world will be large maps and dungeons similar to the zones in DA:I.
>One specific zone will be a swamp marsh area where you’ll get one companion and a tied story mission.
PLAYER CHARACTER:

>Your character can only be human for story reasons, that means you won’t be able to play as a elf, dwarf, qunari etc…
>Can play as male or female.
>There’s a CC filter on being homosexual, heterosexual or bi and influence some dialogue line as well as romance options.
>Your character’ last name is Lanius and will be referred to as such by all the NPCs and text.
>DAR will be more story and character focused than DAI, you have a mother and father and a dead male/female that’s interchangeable based on your sex ie if you’re male you’ll have a dead sister and vice versa .
>Your dead sibling is dead before game and will be involved in a form of a quest with your own mother.
>Vastly improved CC system, you can literally make a young Liam Neeson type character if you wish, it’s that good and it’s the best CC system ever made.
>You’ll have 7 companions, 4 males and 3 females.
>Of those 7, one will be a dwarf, another an elf, and there’ll be a qunari companion.
>If you take any of these characters on mission with you within Minrathous prepare to have racist encounters and with the Qunari a literal bloodbath.
>The main female romance option of males is named Eva Scala and her father is senator Daedelus Scala leader of Populares faction of the imperial senate.

>Warriors are just warriors, still cool.
>Items system is the exact same as DA:I.
>RNG is more forgivable in DAR than DAI however the higher difficulty the less luck with RNG.

>You and Daedalus Scala lead this secret society known as the Old Order whose fundamental goal is to bring back the last two untainted old dragon gods to fight against a “greater evil”.
>You recruit people similar to how you recruited individuals in DAI and send them on missions of assassinations, political intrigue, resource gathering etc…pretty much similar to DA:I.
>You get rewards for mission completion including exp, crafting resources, rare weapons and items, and Old Order points used to unlock perks in the Perk system.

>Hawke/Stroud are in the Anderfell level.

What was that? Did you want me to post one of the forever-inconsistent portraits of my hot babes? Alright sure, why not.

Edit: I actually kind of want to see people color this. If you’re up for it, go ahead!!

yall whites can sit on your lil tumblr blogs with your cartoon character hyphen mental illness urls and reblog all the posts you want to sayin “representation matters!” but at the very same time refuse to watch anything that actually has representation. yall will jump through hoops to come up with reasons why you dont watch shows or movies that have main characters of color, just stop acting like you actually care it must be exhausting for you. and before anyone tries to try me and say “it’s just a show!” it’s really not, it’s showing us plain and simple no, representation does not matter, at least not to yall

koclains  asked:

Hey! I have a lot of trouble with drawing eyes :( i struggle with size and shape especially... any tips?

Oh heck, hello haha um honestly I don’t really know what I’m doing, but I’ll try to answer as best I can!

I like to take pictures of my face and practice from my own eyes. here’s one and Here’s another one (this one’s a few years back heck)

those ones i just traced a base line over the pictures and then eyeballed the coloring. That’s really useful for getting shapes and angles down when the head is turned. good for drawing the same eye with different expressions and things.

I’m actually doing one right now for some new practice. this one I didn’t do a base sketch at all, I just started SLAPPIN’ color on there. I’ll post progress pictures once I finish it.

ALTHOUGH IF YOU DO THIS, I WOULD RECOMMEND SWITCHING IT UP A BIT AND USING OTHER PEOPLE EYES TOO. because I have a slight difficulty drawing girls with different eye shapes than my own haha oops

I would also recommend paying attention to lid shape, eyelash length, and the angle of the eyes as well as the basic shape. just little details that will set them apart from other eyes. 

learning from real life is always super great

here’s my eyes, compared to my sisters. just showing how related people have similar but different eyes

sometimes starting with a circle helps

the same shaped eye with different lids

size differences

for coloring: Eyelids make shadows. eyelashes make shadows. light shows through the iris, depending on the angle.

hope that helped you a bit. mostly just learn from real life for coloring and shape and everything. and then apply it to your style. sorry if this wasn’t that helpful or anything. I’ve been a bit scatterbrained lately as well as busy. I hope i wrote everything i wanted to D:

hello! i hope you enjoyed the episode this week! i liked it a lot. here are the BGs i worked on for it! i consider it my magnum opus of this season because i did…a ton…of these…i started them around thanksgiving and when i came back to work after new year’s i still had more to do lmao.

the gunk world was really challenging and fun to work on! painting a place that’s made of the exact same material that’s the same color and has no logical light source was tough to figure out…phil and jason helped a lot of course! i think the three of us all contributed something neat to the feel of the world. the primary references we used for the actual gunk were snot, sewage, melted crayons, and gak. i also tried to make the ground feel oily.

in the end i’m really proud of how it all came together :8)

next episode is not only my favorite of the season, but one of my top 3 favorite episodes of the whole series, so don’t forget to come back in 2 weeks and come excited!!!

do u ever think about how mika is probably terrified of becoming a demon but at the same time at least he wouldn’t have to hurt anymore?

bnha boys: interesting designs, differnt costumes that reflect on their quirks, are allowed to emote, can actually look mutated and weird

bnha girls: all pretty, all normal looking aside from odd skin/eye colors like the alien chick, no varying from the pretty much same pretty girl formula and have pretty much the same body type, all have skintight and or very revealing suits as costumes 

me:

Making characters of color into white characters will rarely make sense, setting aside the fact that doing so only worsens current representational disparities, because we still haven’t gotten to a place where the people of color can exist in a fictional universe without their existence needing to be explicitly “justified” in some way (usually by the racism they experience in the plot).

On the other hand, for most white characters in western media, there is no canonical reason for the character to actually be white. Criticisms of racebent characters almost always rely on the fact that the character was white in previous iterations, and criticisms of original characters of color come down to a “lack of realism”, even if the absence of POC is actually more “unrealistic” and despite the fact that fiction is not beholden to reality. Both come down to white audiences not wanting to exert the same effort in relating to a even a single character of color as people of color do to relate to an overwhelmingly white media landscape.

The last image from Sunday’s stream! I usually do the final image of a request stream in color, and it’s usually a different topic that the rest. So we did pokemon for most of the stream and then the final request was Breath of the Wild Link as a Rito (from the same game, not the WW ones) Alas I do not own a Switch so I have not been able to play this game, but I love the design of the Ritos in it! Maybe someday I’ll get to actually play it, but I won’t purchase a Switch until there’s more games that interest me because I just can’t justify buying a system for only one game to myself. ^^’ (Even though dang I want to play this game real bad)

my hand is officially dead but here is more altean prince iwaizumi + designs :’D
