25. Buddy from Lisa - The Painful RPG and Lisa - The Joyful
About theme: Lisa is the best Earthbound-inspired RPG! Totally.
About execution/critique: good palette, bad lines. I tried to make a stylised picture, but it came out very disjointed. Like three different pictures mashed together. Probably, my weakest lineart of whole challenge.
As the title suggests, this is a masterpost for all your Abdul/Polnareff needs. Or at least a starting point :3
You’re new to the loveliness that is Abdul/Polnareff and don’t know where to start?
Don’t want to repost pictures because you respect the artists and their work but want to show other fans the super cool art?
Want to give the artist’s/writer’s page more traffic and lead visitors towards them?
Need all the fan fiction all the time?
Can’t get enough of Abdul/Polnareff because, frankly, who can?
Then this post is for you!
A word of advice: I won’t filter any artists/writers. You will find high-quality art next to stickmen, friendship next to raunchy sex, humor next to blood and gore. This is a master post not a list of my favourites!
It’s ongoing as well and I’ll keep adding new stuff to it occasionally.
Spread the word and reblog the list, fellow AvPolians. This one’s for you!
Voltron Positivity Week kinda hit me unprepared because I
wasn’t paying any attention to the dates lol. I’ll be playing catch-up, but in
the meantime here is a shoutout to my favorite blogs, all beautiful people I
have had the pleasure of making friends with since the start of this ride. You
guys are the ones who make this fandom completely worth it, and bring joy even
in the midst of all the craziness. Friendly reminder that this is just a sideblog and I stalk follow from my main bluerobokitty.
@mikuridaigo – one of my first Voltron friends. I forgot how
we met, I think you were going crazy over writing from Keith’s POV and I jumped
on your post like “bitch me too!” and then we ended up bonding over Keith’s
vague personality and how much of a tree stump he actually is in the show. X3
Then you became my no1 salt-mate, helping me vent out my frustrations whenever
fandom got out of hand. You have been such a wonderful source of support and
inspiration and I can’t imagine being here without you.
@lynneve – a lovely person I met through miku when they came
to one of my original Voltron streams. You are just incredible, and your blog
is filled with such positivity. You remind us why we are a part of this fandom
to begin with, a voice of reason when things get crazy. Thank you for
navigating the strange of waters of Imzy with me to create safe groups for
people to be a part of without all the discourse. Also, your selfies are so
cute and bring a smile to my face whenever I see them. They inspire me to not
be so shy with my own selfies, since I used to think I was horribly
@lowellfamilyprecepts – An old person like me! :D I met you
through your funny, slighty angsty, and adorable Klance fic Imagination is
Power. I was so happy when you got to join the OG streams and we got to talk a
lot more! You are another lovely person and I hope we get to talk even more in
the near future.
@isayvol – a new friend! I have a lot of fun telling you
about all the crazy hijinks we Americans get into, especially how we celebrate
Christmas. Your support, especially your tags on my art, has been incredibly
overwhelming. You don’t have to do this, but you do, anyway. You spread so much
love and positivity into this fandom, it has been a joy following you.
@damnspider – another wonderful blogger and amazing artist. I
about died when I saw your art for Galra Companion. That piece had been on my
desktop for a very long time. xD Your support has been amazing, and your art is
incredibly cute with a distinctive style that I recognize immediately. I
especially love your floofy Galra!Keith. I hope we get to talk more someday.
@browntiger15 – We just kind of hit the ground running when
we started talking to each other, mostly through our mutual love of Kallura.
Because Kallura is awesome. Your prompts and discussions have really been
insightful and thought-provoking, helping flesh out this rare ship even
further. You have made me seriously excited at the idea of this ship being
@itsdetachable – Your Klance BloodCam fic is amazing! It
really, really is! It’s so sensual and detailed and I can’t get enough of it! I’ve
been meaning to tell you for a long time now, but sometimes I just don’t have
the words? I can’t even really pick a favorite scene. I wasn’t sure what I was
expecting when I first clicked the link – I started reading because I’m a
weirdo who likes reading unconventional romances and kinks. Talking to you on
Twitter has been a joy, and I hope we get to talk more. :D
@fonbella – The embodiment of “be kind but take no shit”.
Your handling of the salt that goes down in this fandom has been nothing less
than perfection. It’s been inspiring watching you handle all the bs while at
the same time still maintaining a positive presence, especially in regards to
multi-shipping. You’re amazing!
@flavordays – Your art is just incredibly stunning – never give
up on it even if the payout isn’t always great. I definitely relate to the art
salt you sometimes post on a very spiritual level. We artists just have it
rough sometimes. But I’m in love with your work, and it’s been wonderful
following and chatting with you on Twitter. I definitely look forward to talking more with you if
ever the chance comes up.
@biblicacelestia – We’ve never talked but I’ve been following
your art for a long time now so I wanted to mention you. Your style is so
floofy! So bara. ;D Keep up the wonderful work and I can’t wait to see what
else you create for this fandom.
@autumn-sacura – One of the first artists I followed when I
got into this fandom. I have no words to describe your art. None. Gorgeous?
Detailed? Stunning? These words don’t do your work justice at all. And your
NSFW… heehee… hee… :3 I know your on a kind of hiatus right now, but I really
hope you see this at some point because your work is incredible and deserving
of all the love it gets. Also, you were the one who got me considering shipping
Kallura seriously before fandom imploded over it. I hope we have a chance to
talk and stuff whenever you come back.
@ace-pidge – You’ve been one of the big names in fandom since
the beginning. You were all over my dash even when I wasn’t following you yet
lol. To see such wonderful support from you when I post my art has been a tremendous
honor. You are too sweet and I hope you continue to be a positive impact on
@zillabean – Another amazing artist I’ve been following for a
long time now. Got some amazing premium beef, mmmhm~ Also, your Robeast is so
CUTE I cannot and I really hope that bab wins I’ve been voting for that cutie
every day! I want ten of them. TEN. Continue being awesome! :D
@donutsteele – the Pidge to my Lance. You shake your head
even as you continue to support my work when it falls a bit on the weird side and
for that I am immensely grateful. You get a special mention because much of my inspiration
for Galra Companion comes from you (my later chapters will be dedicated to you
because of the ideas you have given me).
To everyone who has ever liked, reblogged, commented,
tagged, or kudo’d my work: no matter how small your feedback, it matters. You
matter. Whether you are part of the fandom or whether you just like what I
make, I could not have gotten this far without you. It is all of you, everyone
mentioned and not mentioned in this post, who has made this fandom worth it for
me even when things got crazy. I will try to give back to everyone as much as I
can. Thank you so much. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
People usually ignore my pictures of national Udmurt costumes. But they like pictures with popular characters. So I got an idea - what if I will draw popular characters in costumes, inspired by Udmurt clothes?! ^__^
Here is Udmurt-inspired Zelda and Link. Maybe I’ll do more in future ^__^
Man, you know every generation thinks they had it great, and I’m not gonna pretend we didn’t have terrible things (I mean, look at any yearbook photo) and we didn’t have awesome things (all I have to say is “Zoom, zoom, zoom”), but something we most definitely had, was representation. We were major characters on shows and in movies, not regulated to an entertainment ghetto or completely ignored. Growing up, you could see yourself on “Ghostwriter,” “All That,” and “California Dreams.” We were saving the world from aliens, dancing in Mickey Mouse ears, telling horror stories around campfires, you name it!
So this image I commissioned from the always fantastic autumn-sacura, in tribute not just to the phenomenal actors pictured here (the late Thuy Trang, the charming Mario Lopez, the vocal bible Brandy Norwood, and the guy-who-probably-starred-in-something-you-love Mr. Dante Basco), nor the army of unsung performers who showed up on our screens repping us, our cousins, our friends, our crushes. This image is a tribute to US, for being varied, for being awesome, for representing OURSELVES just by leaving our house in the morning, proud of our skin, our background, our hair, and the things that make us US.
Just a reminder…#REPRESENTATIONMATTERS because the world needs to see all of the beauty we bring. So if you are a creator, remember how it felt when you saw someone had hair like you, lips like you, a story like you, and pass that on to someone else. Bring that beauty to those who will read your words, watch your vision, and step into your world. It makes the world we eventually step back into that much more vibrant.
About theme: I still think Turn A is the best Gundam, or 08th MS Team, can’t decide.
About execution/critique: 5 colors is too generous! It almost feels like palette wasn’t limited at all ^__^ Here I tried to show soft moonlight, using dots, similar technique was used for some 16-bit games. I’d say his pose came out too stiff, also why did I add those brown lines in lower part of the picture? They are just ugly.
30. Cecil Harvey (and a bit of Kain) from Final Fantasy IV
About theme: Honestly talking, Final Fantasy IV is pretty bad game. I still love it to death!
About execution/critique: Yay! 30 days, picture a day, without fail (well, there were fails, but of different kind). I survived it!
Back to the picture - the palette works great with Amano-ish style and given characters. But I regret that after fail with # 27, I made such simple lineart. This is where a lot of details and ornaments would be in place, what a missed opportunity!
Emilio Juarez from Trauma Center 2. AU where he survived everything, and his ilness being fully treated. Also, because he adored Derek, Angie and Heather so much, he decided to become a doctor or nurse himself!
Can be used as sprite or for PRs (though, I highly doubt if anyone still remember Trauma Center ^__^)
1. Orga Itsuka from MS Gundam Iron Blooded Orphans (with a bit of Mika)
About theme: Wow! After all these years finally a goog Gundam! At least it started great, but went downhill somewhere during Brewers ark. Still, probably the only decent anime of those recent ones I saw.
About execution/critique: I liked to work with this palette, because in this picture it allowed me to make brown color look white, pink color look like brown, and purple color look like black. But picture came out too dark, and I chose ugly texture for background. Lineart is passable but boring. 7/10.
About theme: criminally underrated JRPG, probably one of the best games for DS. Also, probably the best Yoko Shimomura’s ost.
About execution/critique: Eruca and Stocke both have golden hair and also hearts of gold! So primary I wanted to give this picture the feeling of gold etching, using only given three colors. Was it succesful? Eeh, not like I wanted at least. There are also some mistakes in anatomy, girl’s head a bit too big and her hand is too small.
