always my favorite part

The intro cards for Futurama have always been one of my favorite parts of the show because people always talk about the old Simpson’s couch gag but this is just pure gold… I mean-

It goes from everything from 

and then they made fun of how much everyone reacted to the the infamous ‘dead dog episode’ that I cried about…

And then one time when the show got canceled…

and then when it came back..

dating advice: the “captain america” rule

Context: I grew up in a family of nerds, and superheroes were always a really big part of my childhood. Captain America was a favorite, and he kind of became my family’s standard for good behavior and just generally being a Nice Person. (If one of the kids started a fight they’d get hit with, “What would Captain America think of how you’re acting?”, stuff like that.)

So when I got to high school and started dating, my mom told me something that sounds funny but in retrospect actually turned out to be really good advice:

“Date someone who treats you the way Captain America would. Never settle for less.” 

And this has actually helped me so much in my dating life, through high school and into my adult years, because even if it’s a little silly, it’s been really helpful to have that standard in the back of my mind when I’m first going into a relationship. 

Would Captain America ignore my calls? Would Captain America forget my birthday? Would Captain America get mad at me for cancelling a date because a family emergency came up? If the answer is no, then I know that the person I’m currently dating does not meet my standards, and that I need to break things off before they get too serious.

And your standard absolutely does not have to be Captain America, specifically. It can be any person, male or female, real or fictional, who is known for being respectful and considerate. It can even be an imaginary “soulmate” that you make up yourself. The point is to have a specific idea of how you expect to be treated by your romantic partners, and to refuse to compromise or settle for less. (Just make sure you’re holding yourself to the same standards – you can’t expect to date superheroes if you’re going to treat your partners the way a supervillain would.) This is a really good way to keep yourself from falling into bad relationships where you aren’t treated with the respect and care you deserve.

TL;DR: You deserve to date people who are respectful and considerate of you. You deserve a Captain America. Don’t settle for less.

But seriously all I really want to do is talk about the Gaston song scene in the tavern because it was everything I hoped it would be and so much more! It’s always been one of my favorite parts of the animated movie and the live action blew it out of the water!

For the past two years I’ve been working on DreamWorks Animation’s “Home: Adventures with Tip and Oh” (now on Netflix!). I started on the show as the visual development artist, but for the second season I was promoted to Art Director. After my promotion, many of my duties on the show changed, but one thing that remained constant was color scripts! I LOVE making color scripts - it’s one of my favorite parts of the show. We don’t always do them in TV - but for special scenes and music sequences I like to plan everything out so all the painters are on the same page. These are a few of the many, many color scripts I have done for the show. 

Sometimes these color scripts span many scenes, and sometimes I’m just plotting out the color for one or two key paintings. I’m always excited to see how these come alive as the show gets animated, but I have learned that there is great value in being flexible in your plans. Sometimes my color script makes sense initially, but later the scene reveals other needs. I think a strong art director is able to identify when their initial ideas are not working and can change course gracefully. And I feel like this is one of the most fun aspects of my job - it constantly keeps you on your toes! 

**Another thing to note about color scripts created for TV is that, unlike feature, these are often made in the span of a few hours instead of a few months. Everything moves faster in television!

If you think about it, those three steps basically embody the innocence of agape. It’s as if the skater still thinks he can walk on ice as if it were ground, and he is not scared of the hardness and fierceness of the ice because he is innocent and thinks it to be his friend. This has always been my favorite part of the agape routine, and now I know why.

If She Never Knew Me (Part 1 of 2)

Warnings: Fluff, non-detailed smut (will place * when it starts and ends)
Pairing: Bucky x Reader
AN: This is going to be a two-parter. 


Bucky’s bit his lower lip as he watched the baseball field ahead of him. His eyes scanned the dugout for that little boy. 

“Now, coming up to bat is Jared (Y/L/N).”

The announcer’s voice spoke over the speaker. Bucky felt his heart swell as he watched (Y/N) on the other side of the field standing to her feet to cheer for her son. He gave a closed mouth smile before letting his eyes flick back to the 10-year-old boy. Jared took a deep breath before turning his ballcap backward, letting his bat rest on his shoulder as he looked over to his mother and giving her thumbs up. Bucky’s fingers played with one another as he watched the boy walk up to the base and take his stance. 

“Come on, buddy, you got this,” Bucky spoke as he felt his heart pound in his chest, just like it always did when he watched Jared’s games. He never missed one, just as he promised the young boy. 

The pitcher rolled the baseball in his hand a few times as he shook his head to the catcher once–twice–before nodding. A lump grew in Bucky’s throat as he watched closely, his eyes flicked over and just like always, (Y/N) was sitting on the edge of her seat. Even from this far, Bucky knew exactly what she was saying. It was the same words she would whisper when her hand would squeeze his. 

“Jared, number #17 on the field, but #1 in my heart. Always a winner in my eyes, relax son, win or lose–you are always my favorite baseball player.” 

Now, her hand is gripping the leg part of her jeans. Bucky forced his eyes away when he saw the pitcher was just about to throw the ball. His eyes followed the ball as his metal hand fisted, “Swing–NOW!” He whispered to himself. Sure enough, the young boy whipped his bat around. The loud hit of the ball meeting the metal bat rang loud, Bucky threw his hands in the air, “That-a-boy!!!” He cheered as (Y/N) screamed and stood to her feet. 

“That’s my boy!!! RUN JARED!!! RUUUNNN!!” 

The little boy took off in full sprint his foot hitting the first base before continuing around to second, “Okay–stop!” Bucky whispered and once again, Jared listened. A proud smile came across his bristled face, “Good job.” He said softly before leaning back against the tree. As he watched the game, Bucky could not help but watch her. The way she cheered and often became vocal toward the refs. A sad smile came across his face at the memories that flooded his mind. With each memory, it made his heart crack more and more…

The Tactician and the Princess

I realize that I take some creative liberties with the relationships between these characters, but the friendship between Robin and Lucina has always been one of my favorite parts of the comic. Even though there are various realities and versions of themselves, they just know that they like being around one another.

Some of you have voiced your liking toward this friendship as well, and it’s good to know that it’s been able to resonate with you. A friendship that can transcend numerous realities is the best kind.

The swallow is one of my favorite parts in vore. c:

I always wanted to do a swallow pic that looks like it came from a medical diagram…okay, probably not fully medically accurate but close enough. c:

I didn’t really feel like doing the full shading job on this, so I figured I’ll just keep it flattish-colored. Lazy, I know. X’D

Drawn while suffering from artist block, girl is nobody in particular. She just…is. :P

ENJOYYY                    

picnic-crossing  asked:

I want to hug you all the time tbh ;u; your art is super precious and youre adorably sweet Ive always wanted to know how you draw eyes cause its like my favorite part of your drawings but I'm also a little nervous to ask in case you aren't comfortable sharing.. but if you are do you think you could do a small eye tutorial?? ackkk im sorry 🙈 I can tell Im gonna regret sending this but I appreciate your blog and art and you so so much

hello sweet blossoms! ♡ ahh no worries, you’re too cute! let me give you a huge bear hug aww! (⊃ˆ❍ˆ(͈´ᵕ`͈✿)

I never imagined I’d get a nice message like this about the way I draw eyes, I’m flattered! (﹡ᵗ ꒳ ᵗ ﹡) I don’t really know what to say~~ ah! ♡

for my animal crossing styled chibis, I personally think the way I draw eyes is a little simple and straightforward 💦 I just kind of go with the basic shape of which ever eye I’m drawing! …and add a sparkle! ✧ so to me, they aren’t really unique or stand out much! (ꈍ ꒳ ꈍ)ゞ

(@mayor-aby, @cupcakecrossing and @mayor-peachy all have very amazing, super detailed, and unique eye styles! I looove the way they draw eyes~! ♡ they are my favorites! ♡)

SWEATS 💦 so because my eye style is rather simple, I’m really sorry that this tutorial is kind of short and basic~~ |ω`)゚・ (I’ve also never made a tutorial before so I hope this is okay!! ♡)

I don’t really think I’m the best for this, so I’m really very sorry! but I hope this helps at least a little bit maybe! (ˊ̥̥̥̥̥ ᗨ ˋ̥̥̥̥̥)و ̑̑ if you have other questions on this, feel free to ask! ♪

thank you again and good luck my dear!! ♡

or: Four Times Moana and Maui Surprised the Crowd, and One Time They Did Not

My first shot at a 4-and-1 type gig! I tried to keep these short, but you know my writing, that didn’t end up happening. I think this is like seven thousand words total. Look, my hand just slipped for four hours straight. 

Happy, happy birthday to my dear friend @paperjam-bipper! You’re so old now, you shmuck. Congratulations. Hope you enjoy the gratuitous amounts of fluff I stuck in here, just for you. :)

Summary: Four times Moana and Maui surprised the crowd, and one time they did not. 


1. 

It’s when the first wave breaks on the deck of their ship that Aronui decides, quite firmly, that she does not like storms.

Even shielded as she is from the worst of the rain by her mother’s sturdy legs and swollen belly, there pellets of water sting against her eyelids, and Aronui has to squint to see the deck of the boat mere feet in front of her. Her hairband was lost long ago to the frenzy of the wind, which whips her hair around her face. When Aronui spares a hand to try and tame it, she ends up nearly ripping off the right half of her head.

“Hard about to port!” shouts a familiar voice, commanding against the fury of the storm.

Aronui looks over to see Moana astride the canoe. Despite the writhing waves that tower around her Moana looks at ease, balanced perfectly atop the edge of her canoe while wrestling with the halyard in both hands. She’s planted at one end of her tiny craft, which sways dangerously in the water, and is somehow using the boat’s instability to clamber up the side and look intently at Kara.
