Calling all fans of Laramie “Lars” Barriga!

Do you love to draw our favorite insecure donut boy? Do ya wanna have a collection of art pieces of our favorite ube roll??? Then do I have a project for YOU!!!

Introducing the Bingo Bongo Zine 2017! A fanzine made to celebrate Lars and his character development throughout the show of Steven Universe. Whether you’ve been a fan since the pilot or just a recent fan, if you love our boy Lars, you are welcome to join!!!

A “Zine” is an art book containing illustrations from a chosen assortment of different artists, usually centered around a specific subject. In short, this will be a book filled with lovely pictures of our good buddy Lars! This is to be printed as a physical, tangible book stuffed full of awesome artwork done by us fans to be enjoyed by adoring eyeballs!

Artist sign ups are officially open, but don’t plan out a big drawing just yet! I know you’re excited, but patience :) Once the group of artists have been hand-picked, I will send you the template and set up of what is needed for the pages to go in the book. We want this baby to be nice and organized so it comes together smoothly.

If this all sounds interesting to ya, then keep reading cuz here is what you need to do: •Send an email to ajwhereartthou@gmail.com with the subject line “Bingo Bongo Zine Application” and include the following!

-The name you’d like to go by! We wanna let everyone know who made that awesome piece of artwork in their book.

-Your tumblr url/or other websites that you use for posting all your rad art. Show me your best and loved works you have to offer!

*Note, please use an email that you frequently check, as that will be my primary way to keep in touch with you!

Artist sign ups will be open from June 1st to July 1st, 12am Cental. So one whole month to send in those submissions! :)

Now for some rules:

* Please keep it PG. We want all Lars fans of all ages to enjoy the Zine. * Try to keep shipping to a minimum. Lars can be drawn hanging out with anyone canon in-show, just try to avoid things being romantic. * The drawings should be POSITIVE. This is to celebrate Lars’ development, and our boy deserves to be happy. So as much as I myself love some angst now and then, we need to keep this happy. * All varieties of Lars are up for drawing as long as it meets the criteria above. From Pilot Lars to Current Lars, to AUs in between, its fair game! * HAVE FUN!!! I want this thing to be fun for all of us, so make sure you’re gonna have fun with it and let that enjoyment show in your work! :3

If you have any question, send us an ask and we will answer it as fast as we can! Now lets start getting out there and drawing!!!

Heaven’s Grace Through White Snowfall

In light of my previous analysis centre on how Yuuki and Zero represent Heaven, Sophi and I want to highlight how Hino enforces this through the use of snow in her official artwork. You can find Soph’s post here [x]

Snow has many symbolic connections, however in Vampire Knight it is stipulated, by Hino, as something ‘white’, something not red, meaning something ‘pure’, all the way back in the very first chapter of VK. The purity of fresh snowfall also represents rebirth and new beginnings. Hence why Yuuki was seen surrounded in snow her first night as a human, and why snow once again was present when she returned to a pureblood. However, snow is also used to symbolise Heaven, and the purity and grace that it embodies. 

Looking at the first official picture of Zero, he is standing amongst the white snow, and thus we see him reborn as the Vampire Knight, as pure and as wholesome as snow, and representing Heaven. If you haven’t seen my previous analysis explaining this in detail you can find it here [x] This picture is a match for Yuuki’s corresponding picture standing in the snow.

The second image highlights how Yuuki and Zero have both been reborn in their new roles; Yuuki as the Kuran Princess and Zero as the Vampire Knight. As such, both are forced to start a new life where ‘they can never be together again’. However as they embrace for the last time, their world is immersed in the heavenly glow of snow, as together, they have ‘reached the preferred direction’, Heaven.

The third image is the image Hino created while thinking of how they might meet in another world, another reality: Yuuki’s fantasy.  The white snow highlights the new world they’ve been immersed in, but also their chance at finally finding Heaven.

Lastly, we have Yuuki, looking up at Zero as he holds her face, watching over her in Heaven. This photo pairs so well with the individual picture of Zero, and highlights the purity of their love and the heavenly glow surrounding them. In this picture Zero and Yuuki are together, eternally, in Heaven, their warmth never leaving the other.

Summary: Your friend Lauren and yourself are having the best time at a Supernatural convention. You meet Jared and Jensen in the photo op, and they’re just as awesome as you imagined. Jensen is charming and you seem to click right away. But as life goes, you sadly have to say goodbye. During the panel, however, the unexpected happens….

Part 1  Part 2  Part 3  Part 4  Part 5  Part 6 Part 7 Part 8 Part 9  Part 10  Part 11  Part 12  Part 13  Part 14 Part 15  Part 16  Part 17


Jensen was very reluctant to go back to work. You were home again, with Lauren a phone call away if you need anything, but he felt as though he had to be there. To make sure nothing would happen. So a day after you’re released from the hospital, he’s kissing you goodbye and heading back to Canada to finish the season. Sitting around your apartment, watching Netflix, reading, and sleeping gives you a lot of time to think. You think about your job. You think about Jensen. You think about how far away he is from you. You think a lot.

A few things I’ve noticed about Ayato and Aogiri in Re

This ended up being longer than I expected so I’m putting everything under the cut. Let’s start with a list of things Ayato has done in Re, basically to show how he has grown. 

Keep reading

man my icon usage is pretty funny because on here, twitter, plurk, and Steam I use a bunch of different Aqua icons (official artwork everywhere but here and all different ones because I love her so much)

and then you have me on Discord and rabbit and it’s my absolute favorite screenshot of Black Hat

big mood at life right now

cake-stuffed-limbs-deactivated2  asked:

I usually don't like drama as I cant mentally handle it, but I like your blog and for it stands for. I'm a...white fan an I wanna do fics/fanart for this fandom. Do you have a list of do's and don'ts when drawing/colouring/writing POC characters?

  • Avoid stereotypes: Ex) Very violent dark skin man just to make him a villain, submissive Asian girl, sassy black lady, drug lord latino, ect
  • Research: Writing about people and/or a culture you are unfamiliar with? Research it! Maybe even interview some people who are apart of it to get a better understanding.
  • Avoid food comparisons: So many times POC have been referred to as ‘caramel’, ‘chocolate’‘coffee’ ect. Just don’t, like just say ‘dark brown’ or ‘black’ and so on or find a different comparison.
  • Listen to POC: If someone is POC and they point out something they find offensive in the fanwork, listen to them and talk to them so you can understand and learn from this.
  • Avoid animal comparisons: Many times POC have been reduced to being animals or beasts. Avoid this at all cost Ex) ‘he looked at me like a wolf on the hunt’ ‘he let out a snarl’ ‘she was as if a timid brown rabbit’ ect ect, just don’t do it.
  • Don’t lighten skin tones: If there is official artwork with a character’s actual skin color on it, use it! Don’t lighten a character’s skin tone and whitewash them. Even if it’s for ‘aesthetic’.

That is all I can think of at the moment but there is no doubt more, so here is is a blog that is a good recourse that I recommend!

I appreciate that you want to be respectful, so thank you! :)

UT burrito: Undertaker’s many layers

As we all know, Undertaker wears a crapton of layers. His button-down funeral robe, his heavy mourning coat, and whatever else he may be wearing as an undershirt. All together, that’s like 2 heavy layers, right?

But Wait…

Look closely-

you see that little white (sometimes shown as gray) lining of his shirt? It kinda looks like just a decorative trim, like on a Traditional Chinese robe (the type with a split high-neck collar).

BUT IT AIN’T

that’s actually two separate shirts right there: his button down AND a white shirt of some sort underneath:

So in total (not counting the sash), Undertaker has three layers: His white shirt, his button down, and his coat, right?

Oh, but wait…

we need to to use the Undertaker figurine for a clear shot at this one. Take a closer look:

You see his button-down shirt? It’s actually split into TWO pieces. Apparently his high-collared black shirt is just that, and his button-down is a separate garment all together. Here is a diagram of all the layers we see UT wearing:

I find it odd that how in no other artwork of him we really get to see that there is a distinct separation between the black shirt and the button down. Even with the collar it only appears to be separate in official art or sometimes in the manga. I’m not sure if it’s always been that way or if Yana has decided to change it.

So in total from what we can see, Undertaker has 4 layers of shirts/coats. FOUR FRICKIN’ LAYERS.

1. His white undershirt

2. His black high-collar shirt

3. his button-down

4. his mourning coat

(its up to you whether or not you want to count the sash) So all in all, Undertaker is a burrito (or should I say, burr-hee-to) of layers upon heavy layers of clothing. Just imagine what it would be like for him to go out and stand in at a funeral in FOUR LAYERS of heavy black robes >_> no thanks.

ART, POETRY & IDEAS: CAPITALISM VS. POST-CAPITALISM

If you are in London the 23rd of this month: 

“All of this is temporary” is an abstract night of interactive exhibitions and live performance that, through the eyes of politically and culturally charged underground artists, asks the question: is capitalism working?

It can be hard to imagine a world without capitalism, but all of this is temporary: there is an alternative. From immersive artworks and live performance to theoretical discussion from key speakers, explore what it means to live in a capitalist world and what it could mean to live in a post-capitalist world.

I’ve created some gifs that will be displaying in a perpetual loop, thinking about our system and its mistakes and where can we go if we do not begin to think about them.

This is one of them (Auto-us). Here in better quality.

Check here the official web

And here the event on Facebook (if you share it, you come in for free)

*Keep in mind that all profit made by ticket sells will go to Crisis charity, helping homeless people in London, find food and warm accommodation.

For my birthday, I got an official artwork piece of the sun goddess Amaterasu from Ōkami, wearing my favourite in-game weapon, the Resurrection Beads.

I mean, this may not mean a lot to people, but I associate this title with a very special period in my life, something I never want to forget. It also represents two beings that are no longer here with us anymore, who also enjoyed the game with me and made this tattoo all the more special.

Guys, go pick up and play Ōkami - you won’t regret it.

Ok everybody, LET’S DO THIS. As a countdown to the 7th Anniversary of Zero Requiem, fyeahsuzalulu will be organizing A SUZALULU WEEK for this year!

Here’s how it will work and how you can participate:

  • From 22 September all the way until 28 September (Zero Requiem)
  • There will be 1 prompt for each of the 7 days
  • For each day, you can write, draw, make gifs/graphics, whatever you want - as long as it’s related to suzalulu and that day’s prompt (you don’t have to post something for EVERY single day, and it’s totally okay to only submit one little thing, although of course, the more there is, the merrier! You also do not have to follow the prompt sequence but it will be great if you do!)
  • Tag it #suzalulu week 2015 (with the spaces in between; and make sure it’s within the first 5 tags so tumblr’s tagging system catches it) and I’ll reblog it here!

Rules (for posts to qualify for reblogs):

  • All artwork that you submit/use has to be your own and/or come from official art/merchandise. Otherwise, any fanwork must only be used with express permission from the original artist AND be clearly and properly credited.
  • NSFW posts should be tagged accordingly.
  • Depictions of rape or pedophilia will not be entertained.
  • There must be Suzaku/Lelouch somewhere in there, of course. Lelouch/Suzaku (in that order) is perfectly fine too! Julius Kingsley from Akito the Exiled also counts as Lelouch ;)

Here are the finalized prompts:

  1. Day 1, 22 Sept: Blue
  2. Day 2, 23 Sept: sunflowers
  3. Day 3, 24 Sept: The Sword
  4. Day 4, 25 Sept: “This is just like the movies” OR “I told you we should have turned left”
  5. Day 5, 26 Sept: Music / “Shall we dance?”
  6. Day 6, 27 Sept: service and sacrifice
  7. Day 7, 28 Sept: Happy Endings (?) / FREE/OPEN CATEGORY

You are free to interpret these however you like (be it AU, canonverse, etc etc. A quote prompt can be rephrased or can function as a theme instead of appearing word-for-word). Thank you to all who suggested more prompts! I will compile those together with any further suggestions, and if this round is a success, let’s do this again over the next few years! :D

This is the official promotional post for the event. Please reblog and signal boost this post like crazy so that we can entice alert as many people as we can before the week begins, and have as much fun as possible! ;D If you have any further questions, send fyeahsuzalulu an ask. (Replies and other admin issues if any will also be posted to the tag #suzalulu week 2015)
Thank you all! Much love, and here’s looking forward to it!

Day 5: Breakdown

Day 6: Weakness [ specific genre: smut and/or fluff (❤️.❤️) ]*

Same as last year, we will use *GRAYLU DAY as LOVE LOVE DAY also, so that’s why we only suggest those genres.

You can choose “smut” if you want to make steamy artworks or “fluff” if you’re not comfortable with the other genre and want to show the cute and adorable side of GRAYLU. But it will be double the joy double the pleasure if you choose both, “smut fluff”! ♥(ノ´∀`)

My special airs May 22nd but you can watch a trailer here!

I chose this photo from the shoot for my “official artwork” for my special. I’m not sad about my title - I’m embracing, as we all should, our inner confident c***face. NONE of us is guaranteed life to go the way we want - so the sooner we stop stressing about doing it right, the better!

Here’s the trailer http://youtu.be/0GnAmUSvpAQ

Counterfeit Contradiction.

Hmm…Well, the characters on here certainly aren’t very outlandish, but that doesn’t mean much.  We’ve seen PLENTY of fakes around here that’ve been pretty convincing simply based on the artwork or character selection alone.  But that’s what you’ve got us here for!  To pick out what don’t look right.

Now let’s see what we can deduce here…
