and i was looking through caps for inspiration

Wand commissions open!

So I’m broke af and work isn’t giving me the hours I need to pay the bills so I’m opening up commissions for Harry Potter inspired wands. I create one of a kind wands that make a perfect addition to your Harry Potter collection!


Commission details

Basic wand: $25

This will include one carved wand. I will create a design based on input from you or your personality. I will provide you with the design before starting for approval. The only non carved/burnned embellishment will be an end cap, ex. The rose.


Embellished wand: $30

Like the basic wand I will create and approve a design through you. With this I will include up to 2 types of embellishments, ex. Pearls, shells, wire work, beads, etc. Each embellishment after 2 will cost an additional $5.


Harry Potter inspired wands: $35- $45

If you are looking for a recreation of one of the official wands I won’t recreate those as the design is copyright to Warner Brothers. However I am willing to male similar styled and inspired versions of them. These are more difficult hence the higher cost.


If have any questions or wish to contact me about commissioning a wand feel free to contact me at shipperart@gmail.com

You took one last look at yourself in the mirror. With a big sigh, you adjusted the square brim of your cap with one hand, and tightly held onto your gown with the other.

“Well. This is it.” You told your reflection before giving yourself a small nod. You turned to walk out the door; the sound of your high heels hitting the tile echoed through your empty apartment with every step. With each click, you silently reminded yourself that all you should have to worry about today is not tripping on that stage. 

  As you walked outside, you closed your eyes and took a deep breath, inhaling the warm summer air and exhaling all of your anxieties.

Here’s a turnaround for Snag. I think Snag went through the most changes. We really wanted the two main characters to stand out and give them both a certain unique“flare.” Our goal was to take a spin on a main boy character and make him look a little more rough around the edges but still be a hero. No backward baseball cap here. Snag unlike Rawhide is a bit more symmetrical. He sports his trademark shark fin hair and leather jacket with built in spikes inspired by “Godzilla.”

I BLAME THE AMAZING DOOM!!!

Okay so I was scrolling through stupidoomdoodles AMAZING artwork (specifically the merfolk stuff) and it got me thinking: if the Saiyan Merfolk are based near the equator/tropical waters why can’t another species live near the polar ice caps or deep in the ocean?
So I give you the Merneks! Cousin to the Saiyan Merfolk with similarities with the Earth's Frilled Shark and Anglerfish, (look them up THEY"RE AWESOME!!!) 

I walk through the valley of the shadow of death.

TLOU2 preview trailer really inspired me! This is my first attempt at something more realistic looking in years. I still have much to learn shading wise but I actually really like drawing in this style! Might take it forward from here :3 

Please don’t repost!

THAT FANART WAS AWESOME - PLEASE DO A FIC OF THRANDUIL UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THE ONE RING, AND BARD IS THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN GET HIM TO REMOVE IT. HOW HE GETS HIM TO FINALLY TAKE THE RING OFF IS UP TO YOU. Sorry for the caps... I got away from myself. *sheepish smile* Pretty please???

It’s an au where Bilbo really does lose the ring in the battle, and Thranduil finds it - as such it gets a bit dark in the middle so please heed the warnings in the tags

The art it is inspired by is here and friggin amazing, you should all take a look and love on the talented artist



Thranduil moved through the chaos left by the battle, his son was not going to come home and every elven body left lifeless on the ground left a fresh scar in Thranduil’s heart. He was torn between wishing they had never come to this accursed mountain and knowing the devastation those armies would have created if they had not.

He knew Legolas was safe, and while he was not coming home it was a mercy, not having to fear seeing his child as he moved through the bodies.

And he knew Bard was safe, it felt like nothing short of a miracle that he and the children had survived relatively unscathed and Thranduil had held them all so tight he was half afraid of hurting them, but they had only gripped him even tighter.

Elves and men alike had looked at them confused as they embraced, stealing from each other only a few life affirming kisses before being forced to part to deal with the aftermath. They had kept their relationship a secret, but in that moment secrecy was the further thing from their minds, needing to prove their eyes right and feel each other, needing to know it wasn’t some cruel dream fuelled by the fog of the battle.

Reluctantly they had parted, Thranduil needed to comb through the battle field and look for any of his people who might have survived, Bard needed to tend to his own as well. It felt both strange and utterly right to think of Bard as a king, Thranduil supposed he had always felt like an equal, despite all the things that should have made them irreconcilably different.

As he moved through the ruins, remembering every body, every face and every name of his fallen people, something caught his eye which was not the dead.

It seemed to gleam even in the dull light, a gold flash half buried in snow, Thranduil found himself inexplicably drawn to it, like a physical pull he could scarcely explain nor resist.

Thranduil stooped down to pick it up and found that it was a simple gold ring.

He could not explain it, but although he had only just picked it up, he could not think of a more distressing thing than being parted from it.

I’m scrolling through tumblr when I spot this screen cap. Are you seeing what I’m seeing? The split in Gamzee ’s expression mirrors that all too used mask in theatre, said mask inspired by Greek god Dionysus.

What is he a god of?

God of the Grape Harvest, Winemaking, Wine, Ritual Madness, Religious Ecstasy, Fertility and Theatre.

I think I’m on to something here, all of these aspects are referenced within Gamzee’s character, so, now we have a solid inspiration that Hussie used right?

Let’s look a little further into the story of Dionysus.

“His procession (thiasus) is made up of wild female followers (maenads) and bearded satyrs with erect penises.” Sounds familiar right? Goats and cod pieces.

“Dionysus is represented by city religions as the protector of those who do not belong to conventional society and thus symbolizes everything which is chaotic, dangerous and unexpected, everything which escapes human reason and which can only be attributed to the unforeseeable action of the gods.” Even more familiar, his reasoning to lash out, kill with no reason always stemmed from him believing he was a god.

Also in childhood Dionysus learns about wine a ‘precious juice’ but is struck with madness.

Dionysus also links to centaurs, bulls and various big cats in many ways, he links to bulls as not only being portrayed with horns but having a link to another god, shown as a bull, both being representative of restoration. The cats he uses their hides to dress himself and his chariot is pulled by both tigers and panthers.

Now, I don’t know a fuck ton about Greek mythology so I’m going to carry on researching, I’m especially going to find out if other trolls link to gods, as it seems pretty likely.

So please message me if you figure out anything else relevant to this!

l-arctanis  asked:

Out of curiosity about the Blue's twin brothers, was there a bit of inspiration from Pokemon's Subway bosses Ingo and Emet?

Not intentionally but I do admit I can see the resemblance. XD

Martin and Jaycob were designed by me going through my gear in game and looking which were similar in design but would also work as “opposites”. At first I thought they’d have rainy and sunny day tees and then different caps but then I remembered inky riders and how I always wanted use them so that’s where the whole black/white theme came. + Really bright neon colored shoes. 

Reflections on a Trip Around the Sun

I know my fellow writers will understand why this is such a long post - for the rest of you, please bear with me.  :o)  And I am tagging this the way I am because most of this pertains to my JLY family, who have made this year so good for me.  I know some days we don’t have enough time to go through the entire dashboard and we only check certain tags…and this way I can share with the people who have come to mean a lot to me this past year.  And I have a feeling that many of you can relate to some of what I have to say.

Every year on my birthday, I used to do a post reflecting on the past year and the hopes I have for the coming year.  This was a blog on a different site, one I don’t even use anymore.  I always found something positive to say - up until last year.

Last year I didn’t even have the heart to try to post something.  I spent most of the day home by myself, with only a couple of quick birthday wishes from family members.  We didn’t go out to celebrate at all.  It had not been a great year to begin with - I was not in a good place and couldn’t bring myself to write anything.  This year is so much different for me, so I am doing my birthday reflection again.  

The first couple of months after my last birthday were still not great - but that all changed when I went to see Jersey Boys in June.  It was like a switch had been flipped.  The story of the movie itself inspired me, and I had to learn all I could about the actors, especially the one who played Frankie.  His performance moved me…and the more I learned about him, the more inspired I became.  When I started following John Lloyd Young Friends on Facebook, I discovered many like-minded people who had also had similar reactions, and we bonded.  We REALLY bonded.  It was like having the sisters I never had, and we’ve all been through so much together.  We all support JLY and each other in everything, and it’s like nothing I have ever experienced before.  

Since June, there has been so much growth in so many areas of my life.  I’ve lost 25 pounds and am still working on more.  I’ve gone back to finding the positives in life and working toward my dreams.  I had all but given up on finding an editor for my first novel and getting published, but now I’m halfway through the editing process and looking forward to being published very soon.  I’m well into writing the second book, with the main character inspired by JLY.  I started working on poetry and songs and singing again.  

And just as important - I have found a group of friends through all of this that are true friends, who really care.  I had been hurt by “friends” in the past, and it’s so good to have people in my life that I support who are also happy to support me as well.  We are always there for each other, and they have done so much for me that I get emotional thinking about it.  I hope to return the favor, and also pay it forward to others.  

To cap it off, the trip to LA helped to inspire me more in so many ways.  I’m looking to find a better job so I can take care of things around here AND be able to travel to see JLY perform and see all of my amazing friends more often.  I miss them already and it’s been less than two weeks since I’ve seen them.  I want to be at more shows and get together with the girls whenever possible.  Even though we chat all the time, there’s nothing like being with them in person.  And being there to see JLY perform some of his original songs motivates me to get more serious with my songwriting.  I want more chances to be inspired by my favorite performer in person - even though I can’t make it to all of the shows and events, I want to be there to support him whenever I can.  I am now not only inspired to keep going - but to take it to another level and really push for my dreams.  I am stronger than I ever thought, and have confidence that I can accomplish more than I thought possible before.

I’m sending a sincere and heartfelt thank you to JLY and all of my JLY sisters - because of you I have hope for the coming year that even more positive things can happen, and faith that they will.  And because of the adventures I had in LA and at Sterling’s, I now know that beautiful things can happen in my life.  I am so grateful to all of you. xoxoxo

Now…if you made it to the end of my post without zoning out, thank you as well. :o)  I promise that there won’t be any posts quite this long again for quite a while, other than one celebrating when my book finally comes out.  You know I am always here for all of you as well - and I encourage you to make your own reflections when your birthdays roll around. I know so many of us have stories like this about the positive changes that have happened in our lives since Jersey Boys came out in theaters.  I’ve heard a few of my friends’ stories - but many of you are newer JB/JLY friends, and I would also love to hear your stories. Reflection is good for the soul…and I want to support all of your dreams too.  Here’s to an even more amazing year ahead - for all of us!
