after like a year i finally ordered it

So I’ve decided to finally after like three years of wearing it to conventions ~*officially*~ submit my Chiss X-Wing pilot for Rebel Legion approval because there’s no provision for alien variants, I just have to submit the entire costume all over again, and then I fell down the rabbit hole of blue species I can submit as and long story short I’m digging my Twi’lek lekku out of storage and I just ordered a purple wig to also be Pantoran and the costume judges are just going to have to deal with me submitting three versions of the same costume that is already approved just with different hair/makeup.

Also, spoiler alert: I am going to make them do it again when I finish my A-Wing pilot costume, because I caaaaaaan!

“Look, I didn’t want to be a half-blood.”

I haven’t read a series in quite a long time where I had such a clear, distinct vision of what each and every character looked like. After finishing through PJO earlier this year, I slowly started sketching out everyone I could and editing along the way in order to get them to look as closely as possible to what was in my head. I wasn’t able to cover every single character that’s mentioned, but I’m still really proud of this set! I can’t wait to use it as a reference for more PJO art going forward.

Angela Bassett as Marie Laveau, as featured in American Horror Story: Coven 
coming December 2016 From Integrity Toys!

[IT announced these dolls like two years ago–just as AHS: Coven was wrapping up. Retailers are finally taking pre-orders on the 6 dolls in the series. The dolls all have new face sculpts modeled after the actors who played each character, which helps explain the long delay in release! The edition sizes range from 600 to 900, depending on the character. I’m (more than) a little mad that Angela Bassett’s doll is the smallest edition size–even the Evan Peters doll has a bigger edition size than hers!?–but believe this means I’m gonna get my pre-order reserved ASAP-tually! –MOD]

(Jumping onto the danny phantom discourse a good month or two late OH WELL)

If I’m being honest, I thought ghosts like Nocturne and Undergrowth were just… ancient ghosts. Not so much as ‘wise and all-seeing’ like the Watchers or Clockwork, but just ghosts that came from a point so far back in time all they remembered was what they were obsessed with. 

Undergrowth was obsessed with plants, so he made his body to look like a massive, intimidating plant in order to keep other ghosts away. He could finally see everything they see, hear everything they hear, feel everything they feel, to his utter delight. 

Nocturn was obsessed with dreams (I particularly believe nightmares) and came from so far back that he made his body as dark as night, able to twist and turn into a boneless-shape so that way he could reach out and touch peoples’ minds. His head grew horns to fit with the creator of the nightmares he now controlled, the devil himself, his grins becoming shark-toothed and full of malice.

So, yeah. Less of them being creatures from another dimension, more of them being so old they make a new body to fit with their obsessions.

That’s right! After like a year and a half, I’m finally returning to this blog, and the next issue in my reading order is Ken Penders’s Knuckles the Echidna #10

Last time, the echidnas and the dingoes continued to hate each other, the Dark Legion teamed up with Enerjak for some reason, Mammoth Mogul showed up and turned Enerjak back into Dimitri, and everyone in Knuckles’s life continued to hide important facts from him because of his magical destiny or whatever

Fic: Begin Again

Summary: When a Star Force follow-up film is greenlit seven years after the series finale, Belle persuades Rum to take part, and the cast is reunited once more. A Friendships and Fandoms fic for Rumbelle Revolution.

Rated: T

Read Friendships and Fandoms here.

=======

Ok, so I got a lot of different prompts for my F&F future fic, but most people thought that a cast reunion for Star Force was in order, so I hope you all like the idea I came up with to mingle all the prompts together!

I’ll be posting some F&F smut separately, as I know how much we all love our smut in this fandom.

========

Begin Again

Belle knew better than to listen in on anyone’s private conversations, least of all her husband’s, but she was beginning to wonder if something out of a horror movie had happened and he was being held hostage via the phone. He’d left the living room to take a call almost two hours ago, and she was starting to worry that she might never see him again. The old movie they’d been watching on the TV had long since finished, and Belle had an early start the next morning and would have to go to bed soon.

She switched off the television and crept out of the room, tiptoeing gently down the hallway to her study. They shared the room, but Belle used it for her designing work when she wasn’t on set so it had basically become hers. She pressed an ear to the wood, but she couldn’t hear any sounds. Brow furrowing, she tapped on the door.

“Come in.”

Poking her head around, she found that Rum was neither being held hostage nor, in fact, on the phone at all. He was sitting in the spinning chair, rolling it slowly from side to side, his elbows planted firmly on the cushioned arms and his chin resting on his fists, which were curled around his phone.

“Are you all right?” Belle asked, inserting herself into the room fully and coming over to him, perching on the desk next to her paints.

Rum nodded, but he was frowning, and Belle raised an eyebrow. He certainly didn’t seem to be all right.

“Are you sure?” she pressed. Rum nodded, so she decided not to push the point. “Who was on the phone?”

“It was Jafar,” Rum said.

I recently pulled the trigger on something I’ve been thinking about for years now: I bought an iPad Pro with accompanying Apple Pencil in the hopes of getting together a working solution to taking my work on the go.
Since people have been asking on Instagram and Twitter, I figured I’d try a little introductory review!

It starts with the fact that art brohirrim, Elfwood tween idol, and 2016 coolest Internet dude, Reagan Lodge went and shipped me a Pencil when he heard that I was waiting weeks for mine after ordering it. He even did me that rad wolf drawing that feels exactly like it does to hold a finally-unpacked wizardy futuredevice for artforging. Pro-tip: the Internet is awesome, the future is cool, and you should plan to wait a while for a pencil cuz apparently Apple didn’t make enough of these.
But one got to me! And I tried to shake the Rayman habit I was developing in the meantime to get some doodles made and see what this baby can art.

After less than a week with it, I’m loving what the device can do. Above is an assortment of drawings I’ve made from a combination of buses, pubs, coffee shops, friends’ couches, hotel rooms, airplanes and theme parks. (Yes, it’s been a crazy week ^_^ THE FIRST OF MANY!)

I gave the setup a test at the Apple Store at the encouraging of a few friends. As soon as I got into Adobe sketch with the pencil, I could feel it was responsive enough to pressure, and that even the relatively spartan little app had the brush support and a lagless quality that built my confidence that (with the right app) this could do the trick.
It feels different- not as weighty and soft as Cintiq can be- but that’s something my hand adjusted to quickly. It’s like switching from a pen to a paintbrush- it’s a new tool and it takes a little learning. In terms of its technical capabilities, it more than keeps up- and the tilt is a nice feature.

My biggest misgiving has been the fact that the pro doesn’t run a full version of photoshop- but the best surprise if the first week has been Procreate.

The surface and the companion both run Windows, and can handle the full version of Photoshop basically like a desktop would- but my experience with both was that they felt a little clunky (and I’m no great fan of Windows’ user experience, just personal preference).
With the Procreate app,the iPad answers a lot of those concerns and a fair few I didn’t think to raise.
So far it feels like a version of Photoshop pared down to just the tools I tend to use the most (with a few slightly frustrating exceptions, but it’s early yet in the life of the pencil and of procreate, so the team is actively adding new features and listening to the user base).
I miss layer masks and gradient fills, but I’ve found workarounds as I’ve played. The UI in procreate is beautiful and minimal- it supports gestures in a really delightful way (Ctrl-z is just a two fingered tap on the screen with your offhand, for instance)- using an app designed for a tablet and the pencil makes the worries about not having the keyboard, dual screens, and mouse that I’m used to just fade away.
I bought a wireless keyboard (the lady at the shop wrote out a physical receipt listing x1 Magic Keyboard and I felt like I was in an rpg) but I think I may just return it, since gestures have me covered.

There’s an adjustment period- it’s not perfect and it’s not a full-featured replacement for a desktop and a Cintiq, but if you want to make it work, you really can…it’s even a delight! I’m confident that what I don’t know yet, I can learn.
With the above sketches, I’ve been dropping little depth charges to see how far I can push it. With relatively little experimenting, I’m more and more excited about the possibilities. I’ve found my watercolor look pretty easy to recreate with a few of the default tools and brushes available to me in Procreate and even Adobe Sketch.
I haven’t posted it here for nda reasons, but I’ve even made meaningful progress on actual client work right off the bat.
I can paint and render, thumbnail and bring character concepts to finish- with the ability to hit a look that melds seamlessly with my body of work (you should see what James Jean can do with it! Sheesh!) it’s certainly not a toy, but a viable tool.

Also it’s pretty- 13" lap gaming is pretty mesmerizing, and taking selfies the size of your actual head isn’t not novel >_>

For someone who loves travel, freedom, mobility and the presence of OTHER HUMAN BEINGS (oh my gosh I might not have to sit alone in a room with a computer all the time!?)- this feels like it could be a game changer.
I’m pleased with mine for sure- now I just need to get myself an enormous rubber case so that I can’t destroy it in my sleep. (like I did on night one -_- Get apple care. Or foam carpets.)
See you soon, THE WORLD. I’m taking this show on the road!

More art and thoughts soon! Thanks for reading and watching, friends :-}) -n

september 11, 2016 // I finally started a bullet journal after failing to like any of my previous attempts I did this past year. this is just the monthly spread, I’m still working on how I want the rest of it to look. I got the plant in the middle picture yesterday and of course, I named it eleven. (my top 5 fave songs of this month aren’t in order btw)

It’s hard to believe that after 77 out of 78 episodes, each of these people are still alive and kicking. I’m betting that’s going to change for #78, but hell, we made it this far.

And here’s all I want out of the finale. Do Elmore justice. Do Raylan, Boyd, and Ava justice. Do justice to the last six years we’ve all spent together. It’s not like that’s a tall order or anything, right? It’s not like I don’t have every confidence in the world that this crew can pull it off. 

It’s been something special from day one. It will be something special in the end.

Fire in the hole!

I really liked this so here you go:

For the arguement thing!

Ritsu finally snaps, he’s been working at Emerald for nearly a year! Why are they still calling him a newbie? The teasing drives him insane and he just snaps at Takano (some angry tears may have been in there) in particular when he pulls the “this is a work related order” card.

He storms off and Takano lets him cool down a bit before apologizing to him not to long after; he didn’t know it was affecting him that much. He doesn’t try to force himself onto Ritsu at all, he had thought a lot about the way he treated the brunet after he got blown up at.

And at work the teasing comes to a stop almost immediately, possibly due to some interference by the demon editor-in-chief himself. The whole ordeal leads to the starting of a MUCH healthier relationship and it doesn’t take long for another “I love you” to come from Ritsu. No interruptions this time.

“The biggest challenge in my life was when I just had to ‘hang in there’ for a long time. Once, I had to take a certification exam that was only offered a few times a year, and I failed it three times in a row. Since I kept failing it, I really didn’t like to study anymore. Nevertheless it was a certification I had to get, so I just endured my situation by crying and drinking. By the fourth time, I finally passed.”
“How did you feel after you passed the test?”
“After I passed I ordered a whole chicken right away and ate the whole thing by myself. That’s how happy I was.”

“제 인생에서 가장 큰 도전은 오래 버티는 거였어요. 일년에 몇 번 없는 자격증 시험에 3번이나 연속으로 떨어졌어요. 자꾸 떨어지니까 너무 공부하기 싫었어요. 그래도 꼭 따야 하는 자격증이라 울면서, 술 마시면서 버텼죠. 그러다 4번째에 붙었어요.”
“그 때 기분이 어떠셨어요?”
“붙고 나서 바로 치킨 한 마리를 주문해서 혼자 다 먹었어요. 그만큼 기뻤어요.“

  • the kind of reason I hope they give for Danny lashing out at everyone: anger and frustration and exhaustion finally coming to a head after almost a year of fighting someone else's war and losing everything for a cause that turned out to be corrupt, for a girl who loves someone else. possibly with a side order of dean-induced mind games. (plus Danny never liked Carmilla anyway and now has a reason to be ~a bit annoyed~ with Laura)
  • the reason I really really do not want them to give: becoming a vampire changes your personality somehow
  • things that just make no sense at all: becoming a vampire apparently made Danny dress like Carmilla and dye her hair brown?

So, I finally read @sakura-rose12​‘s comic @damedaffodil​ (I’m probably the last person in the universe to do so, nvmd), then got extremly bored and then wanted to try if I still can draw after not drawing for 7 light years (exactly this long) in exactly this order and this is what I ended up with

Conclusion, I kind of still can draw, but only on graphic tablet. When I try to draw with a normal pencil every time I make a mistake I look for the undo button like a nerd I am

So after months of starting up three different follow forevers and never finishing them, I finally actually finished one! It also happens to be about this time of year that my other follow forevers were, so I’m making it an annual thing. So here’s almost everyone I follow in alphabetical order. Bolded are favs and italicized are artists. Please message me if you actually are an artist and would like to be italicized or vice versa (please put a link on your blog to your art so I can tell). Last thing, * means it’s a Halloween url and I will switch it to their normal url after Halloween (if they change it).

Here’s why Lena being gay is great.

Think about tiny child Lena (previous to her being taken away by the order) seeing Komui kiss a boy in the village where they lived (cause komui is gay af i’m sorry this is canon) and questioning him about it, asking him if he’s going to marry a boy someday, to which Komui just smiles and says he hopes so.

Years later after being reunited at the order with her brother, when Lena’s maybe 14/15 and figuring herself out in a place that’s definitely not safe (ie the order seeing as it is run by the vatican in the late 1800s) she finally comes out to Komui too, who is just of course overwhelmed, and probably hugs her and they cry together like the gay beans they are.

And just. Gay af Lee siblings taking care of each other and looking out for each other, and Komui will kill a bitch if anyone so much as tries to start trouble with Lena.

Also Allen being Lena’s wingman, like, so I met this cute girl in the Asian Branch. wink wonk. Kanda’s useless, he doesn’t know any girls besides Lena. But what abou- HE SAID HE DOESN’T KNOW ANY GIRLS BESIDES LENA. Lavi giving Lena tips on how to get the ladies, except they don’t actually know diddly squat about getting the ladies.

anonymous asked:

I feel really good about POI now after comic con, do you think that was intentional? I'm nervous am I being naive but shoot and the shows future doesn't seem so grey now. Please reassure me ha lol

I don’t know if I can reassure you but I’d say it’s looking about as good as it can get, it still may be the last season but we got some major positively spun points from this ComicCon. Sarah is coming back for sure. Shoot will have a reunion scene. We got a spine-tingling trailer and Nolan confirmed if CBS cancels it after season 5 they want to look elsewhere.

They will be writing season 5 like the final season (they claim to do this every year) but more importantly than that they want this show to go on. They had said repeatedly before the season 4 finale they have much more story to tell I was afraid their resolve would crumble after the shorter order and the mid season premier. It appears they seem maybe even more determined.

We also had not-so-subtle inklings regarding Netflix. The writers in the panel all agreed that 13 wasn’t enough, but we had Greg say 13 “feels good to them” when interviewed alone (that was purely for Netflix, not for CBS. 13 feels good to them because that’s exactly how much Netflix would give them and it’s exactly fitting for the serialized direction of the show). We also had Nolan openly encourage fans to start watching POI on Netflix when it debuts there in the US. There was a comment also about there being a massive international fanbase presence at ComicCon (that’s another thing Netflix love).

We also had Greg say (paraphrasing) “TV landscape is so different now, there are many avenues” 

They’re not being subtle about it, I think the intention is clear, please remember that Netflix and WGN own syndication rights so Netflix more or less owns POI already anyway. Their stance seems this - if CBS cancels they want to continue the show on Netflix, or hell, maybe even a spin off, and that may or may not happen depending on money and also how well the show does on Netflix in the US when it goes there this fall.

So there’s a contingency in place, no guarantees it will happen, but they want the show to go on and will do everything in their power to make that happen, and I think we the fans ought to do the same by supporting the show on Netflix.
