and i like this color combination

Hi, sorry I don't know if you answered this, but I recall you mentioning paleblood in a recent ask about one of your hunters, but what do you think paleblood is?

The nameless moon presence beckoned by Laurence and his associates. Paleblood.  [Lecture Building Note]

I believe Paleblood to be Moon Presence herself. Or at least what the scholars called her since she’s nameless. When we find the note “Behold! A Paleblood sky!” in Yahar’gul, the color of the sky isn’t white like the doll’s blood, but reddish/purple-ish. Colors we find in MP’s design and also in her blood, which is red and not gray like that of most Kin.

Not all Great Ones are classified as ‘kin’ tho, and in fact, Moon Presence is neither beast or kin despite looking like a combination of the two things. She is alien-like like most kin are, but at the same time she shares a whole bunch of similarities with beasts, especially Silver Beasts (exposed ribs, walks both as a bipedal and a quadrupedal, the head is tilted etc).

But what ‘sells’ it for me is that she’s able to halt the hunter’s ability to heal. Our Hunter has Paleblood running through his/her veins, we entered the Dream thanks to Moon Presence’s blood (which is also what brings the doll to life, if you ask me ) and we’re bound to it because we’re bound to her.

No other being in the game can prevent us from healing except her and hostile hunters throwing Numbing Mist at us as far as I remember.  So basically, if we submit to Gehrman he severs our connection to the Dream… by bloodletting us through decapitation.

“The Bloodletter assumes its true and terrifying form after it draws upon blood from the inner reaches of one’s body and soul.
This is the only effective means of expelling tainted blood, or so Brador, isolated in his cell, continued to believe“ [Bloodletter]

This idea of purging oneself from corrupted Blood was most likely a pretty common practice among those connected to the Church. And even if Gehrman is never ‘listed’ as an official member, we know for sure that he knew Laurence and he even goes so far as to say:

“The Healing Church, and the Blood Ministers who belong to it…were once guardians of the hunters, in the times of the hunter…Ludwig.”

Interesting, don’t you think? :D What better way to be a Hunter’s “guardian” than helping them not to succumb to Beasthood/Blood drunkness by bloodletting them? Just a thought!

Back to our hunter having MP’s blood in their veins, I believe Paleblood to be the reason why after becoming an infant Great One, the Hunter could be considered as Moon Presence’s child. Great Ones always lose their children but MP was a smart great one and was well aware of that. She may even have lost a few squid babies in the past and that’s why she orchestrated the whole crazy plan that is the Hunter’s Dream. (With the unwilling help of a few stupid humans, of course. Great job, Laurence.) Her goal was to steal the cords/power of other Great Ones’ babies in order to generate one of her own. Our hunter happens to be the lucky *cough* one.

Made this one for the @chameleonpens contest! It’s also my first time coloring someone else’s drawing (the amazing @sine_art). It’s definitely a whole different experience! I tried to keep the design as true to the original, but couldn’t help to add some details of my own 😆 I also tried to keep the balance between gradients and solids, and attempted combining a few gradients to achieve something like the Color Tops effect, which are the prize for this competition. Wish me luck! ✌

STEP ONE: accept the “keetz = kravitz” theory with joy

STEP TWO: remember that while lydia and edward wear bananas color combinations, kravitz is just about always in black suits

STEP THREE:

kravitz: lydia, can we maybe wear something with… less colors today?

lydia: no keetz, edward’s prepared a beautiful matching set of 3 outfits in bronze, red, teal, and yellow

kravitz, holding back tears: i hate this fucking family

lmao you can see how organized i got midway through this project

So, for a while, I’ve had a theory.  I wanted to wait for more material before actually making a statement about it, and now I feel like I have enough sample space to test it.  I’ve gathered data from the Rens, the Belladonnas, and the Xiao Branwens (with Qrow included to account for potentially recessive Branwen genes)

Children on Remnant have eye colors that are a blend of their parents’.

Due to lighting, it’s impossible to say definitively, or get a perfect drop of color.  But, I feel like I used a sound method to keep from skewing any data.

I dropped color in a 3x3 pixel square from the center of the eye curve (if applicable) in an attempt to snag a color in the center of the eye gradient.

Once that was done, I combined the colors in another 3x3 pixel square where the colors exist in equal parts, like so.

Examining the data I have, taking into account gradients, and the changes in eye color between children, adult men, adult women, changes between seasons, and even changes in rendering eyes between characters, I think I now know enough to go ahead and mark it as a solid “Probably”. 

Magical Chalks

Magical chalks are amazing tools. You can use them to write sigils, glyphs, or to add some oomph to a circle.

Basic chalk recipe:

Mix up some plaster of paris and water together until you get a stiff paste. Mould it into a cylinder shape and let dry up to 24 hours. If you feel like adding color to your intenet, you can add food coloring to yhe water, or mix the plaster of paris with acrylic paint.

Cascarilla chalk:

Mix one tablespoon of flour, a tablespoon of water and 6 ground eggshells together. Let dry up to 24 hours. You may color this in the same way as you did for the basic chalk.

Cascarilla chalk is used for protection, or to draw the witch’s round.

Banishing chalk:

For this one, I don’t reccomend combining it to the cascarilla chalk. I would go with the plaster method. In a mortar and pestle, combine black pepper, cayenne powder, cinnamon, sea salt, sulfur, allspice, basil, black salt, cigarette ash, garlic powder and chilli flakes. Grind it into a fine powder, the consistency of plaster powder. Combine the powdered ingredients with the plaster, and wet using vinegar instead of water.

Use to draw banishing glyphs, or sigils to repell entities or certain people. Also used to draw boundaries on the go.

Summoning chalk:

Grind dandelion, sweetgrass, thistle, and tobaccco into a fine powder, mix into your plaster or cascarilla mix. Add water and mould into a stick.

Use this chalk to draw the summoning seals of spirits, or to draw unto something you would like to attract spirits with.

Feel free to add to this post! I will be adding ontot it once I have more recipes!

Margaret and Mary Tudor, princesses and later Dowager Queens, the daughters of Henry VII and Elizabeth of York, the sisters of Henry VIII. Born nearly a decade apart, the two knew little of each other after Margaret departed to Scotland, yet shared the same passionate and self-possessed nature, choosing their own mates to the scandal and scorn of others.

Inktober Day 27 - Creepy & Jaktober Day 27 - Lurker Shark

I’ve decided to combine the prompts as a challenge to myself. I really hope to post a couple more.

You see in the games that waste of some sort is being dumped into the harbor. There is also a lack of lurker sharks in any bodies of water. Perhaps connection?

I have always found it chilling to see something once threatening and scary reduced to something pitiful and weak. Jak and Dax face their old nemesis, but somehow… they just found themselves feeling sad.

(I cheated and did a bit of digital shading in that top one.)
