based on my own character

Edit: Finished all 7! <3

MMxDisney Crossover. Please note that these are my personal choices based on my own perception of the characters. You’re free to disagree but please refrain from starting an argument XD lolol :) I decided to include a bit of my reasons for my choices, I tried my best to keep it short but meh XD I’m not good with words ;A; I realized how lost I am with V— it pains me. *sob* 

Anyway, I’ll clean these up soon (add details and fix stuff) because these are only sketches ^^ 

An episode where Pearl meets someone who acts like her could be interesting. Like they use their frail appearance and sad back story to get what they want from people or to stop people from critisizing them. Someone who won’t get over that one crush who moved on.

And at the end Pearl is getting sick of listening to them and either Steven or Amethyst goes ‘But pearl, don’t you do the same thing?’

And Pearl just has a big moment of self realization of what’s she’s done over the years. Her obsession with Rose and behavior against Greg.

It could end with the gems chasing the person away because now everyone’s just annoyed at them, and Pearl just kinda… thinks in the house and doesn’t do anything for a few days/episode because she’s still thinking.

And she starts being more observant when she starts doing her pity stuff and feels angry over Rose, she becomes more hesitant and really starts to think things over.

You know, character stuff that takes a long time to do.

Final Fantasy XV - Horror Game AU

So today I was watching IGN’s How Scary video playlist on YouTube, which is where they film their staff’s reactions to the demo’s of upcoming horror games. And it made me wonder which horror game would best suit certain Final Fantasy XV characters. Though this list is based on my own opinion, and if anyone has any other ideas they are more than welcome to share. ^_^

Noctis Lucis Caelum: Dead Space

I picked Dead Space for Noctis because it reminds me of playing Zegnautus Keep. Just like Issac Clarke, Noctis has no idea what is going on and must use the tools he has in order to survive. While there isn’t much of a psychologically aspect that mimics Ardyn’s illusions, Dead Space would play on the isolation that Noctis would feel when he is searching for Ignis, Gladio, and Prompto. Having been surrounded by people all his life, the sudden abandonment would terrify him. And when you play Zegnautus for the first time without preparing for it, you know you’re screwed.

Prompto Argentum: Fatal Frame 2 - Crimson Butterfly

It’s a game where you use a camera, so of course I’d give it to Prompto! ^_^ But the real reason I choose Fatal Frame was because this game forces you to face the terrors head-on. And while Prompto is a badass, he can be a little timid when he is engaged in combat. Despite this, Prompto would still fight in order to save and protect those he cares for, even if it means overcoming his greatest fears.

Ignis Scientia: Alien Isolation

Ignis strikes me as the type of person who would become scared if he is powerless. In Alien Isolation, this powerplay becomes evident due to the fact that you can’t fight nor can you truly hide either. When Ignis goes blind, he is thrown into a situation where all his skills become obsolete; and that is something that would terrify him. Not to mention that Ignis isn’t really someone who uses brute force, but stealth; and stealth is key in Alien Isolation.

Gladiolus Amicitia: Resident Evil 4

Speak of brute force and you get Gladio. When faced with anything horrifying, Gladio would simply smash it into oblivion; much like in Resident Evil. But I choose Resi 4 because it is more action based than the other Resi games. But what would end up getting to Gladio (and every other player) is the fact that there is an alarming number of monsters to face. Gladio may be strong, but he can’t hold out forever. And that is what would eventually terrify him; the fact that even though he is trying his hardest, it isn’t enough.

Cor Leonis: Condemned - Criminal Origins

Cor wouldn’t be scared of something supernatural, as he is too grounded for things like that to frighten him. No, for Cor to become scared you need something that is right in front of him and seems absolutely normal. In Condemened: Criminal Origins the player is attacked by people throughout his investigations and the only way to survive is to kill them. It is a brutual combat style that truly is a “it’s either you or me” scenario and being a soldier, Cor would have no trouble with that. However, the part that would terrify him the most would be that he is killing the very people he swore to protect.

Ravus Nox Fleuret: The Last of Us

While I know that the Last of Us isn’t really “scary” it is still considered a horror game. I picked this one for Ravus because it reminds me of how he would act with Lunafreya. Ravus was willing to sacrifice everything in order to keep Luna safe, regardless of the consequences. And knowing that there is nothing he can do to save the one he care’s for would eat him up inside.

Ardyn Izunia: Silent Hill 2

In all honesty, there were many horror games I could have put for Ardyn (one being Eternal Darkness) but I choose the King of Horror itself: Silent Hill 2. Now, I choose Silent Hill because psychological horror is, in my opinion, the ONLY thing that would scare Ardyn. In order to one up him, you have to play just as he does; through manipulations and illusions, which is what happens in Silent Hill. Ardyn is the type of individual who is not scared easily by anything, except by his own personal daemons.

TAGGING: @poisonous-panda, @valkyrieofardyn, @maty-yami, @rosenknospe, @little-miss-pandora, @ardynium, @arrdyn, @eternallydaydreaming2015, @dramaticalmurder808, and @jlavisant. I hope everyone enjoyed this, it was kinda fun to do. ^_^

how to develop your style

I got a mail with this question and instead of working on some reviews for the client, I wrote quite a long answer for it. I thought that it might be helpful for someone so here it is:

Bear in mind that probably every artist will have a different answer to this and there’s no such thing as one correct recipe for finding a style. This is just my opinion based on my experience.

1st and the most important thing is to know your basics. Developing a style should come second after developing your skills. Eg. if you want to draw characters you should start with learning all about properly drawing human figure, anatomy, movement, expression, and so one. And you should learn it as much as you can from life and from photos, not from other artist’s works. If your base is strong, if you feel comfortable with your skill, then start to deriverate it into creating your own style. If you start playing with the figure without basics, you’ll end up with a developed style full of mistakes and at this point it will be hard to correct them. So if you want to draw something with your own style, first study it. Study as hard as you can. Remember that you’ll probably never be perfectly happy with your skill, I don’t think any artist is, and you’ll be learning to draw for your whole life. But you want to be at the point where you feel you know the subject, when you’re comfortable with it and ready to push it forward. When I decided years ago that I want to draw portraits, I started drawing them all the time. And it wasn’t just drawing, I was measuring, studying, checking all distances between elements until the point where I knew them by heart. And years after that, I made a decision that I don’t just want to draw perfect portraits, I wanted to make illustrations with characters and make them unique, make them my own. So having this base, I could start changing things, playing with features and actually making my own characters from elements I already knew how to draw. Now I have a different goal when it comes to what I want to draw, and even though I’ve been drawing for many years, I have to go back to step one. I have to study the thing I want to be good at, to later put it into my works and make a style out of it once again. And this cycle never ends but it definitely gets easier. It’s easier to simplify something complicated than build something elaborate from something simple. The same comes to drawing. It’s easier to simplify your style based on perfect skill than build a perfect skill from a simple style. That’s why so many artists who have a very simple style that might look like kindergarden drawing also have lots of amazing realistic drawings and studies in their archives if you start digging deeper. Of course, not all of them.Alternatively, your style will just gradually develop itself while you’re working on your skill.

2nd thing is to study what you like. If you have your base and you struggle with finding your own style but you can point out artists that you love, study them. But here is important thing: Don’t just copy their works. Study. Try to understand, do it consciously, write down things that you particularly love in their style, find out what is it that makes you love their style. This way you’ll have an understanding of what you like and you can make a decision what do you want to incorporate into your style. You can just pick some things and try them. If you like how someone uses colour in their works, break down their palette. Check it with colour theory, find out what is it that makes this particular palette speak to you, shift it, change it, pick colours that you love and then try it yourself. If you like someone’s linework, study it, draw like them, see how it works with your own hand, see if you’re comfortable with it, feel it and then try it in your own original work. And slowly, you’ll pick up things that feel good and they will become elements of your style.Honestly, it’s really hard to come up with something original that was never done before, so there’s nothing wrong about building your own thing based on other existing things, that’s how everyone does it, consciously or not.

And 3rd, don’t beat yourself up if you feel like you don’t have a style. You’ll always be the last person to notice that you actually have a style. I don’t know how it works, really, but just keep that in mind. I still feel that I don’t have a style, even though lots of people say that they can clearly see it. But there’s nothing wrong about it because it keeps you going forward, searching and pushing your limits. The moment you settle on something because you feel like this is it, you stop growing. And that’s the worst thing you can do. Stay curious, keep going forward, one foot in front of the other. Even if you’re going slow, if it’s forward, everything is fine.

so i was watching dance videos on youtube, as one does on a hoppin friday night, and this was one of the recommended videos

thanks youtube robots for bringing into my life this video of kuroo tetsurou dancing to jason derulo’s seminal masterpiece ‘wiggle’ in 6-inch heels

Lover’s Curse

“For one man, you have abandoned heaven. And so you shall follow his footprints… until… they lead you back to the flames.”

Confession:  I’m really into role playing, so when I want to play my main character in an rpg a certain way, I don’t change what my mc would do based off of my own moral standards. If there are characters that could disapprove of my actions then idgaf and I do it anyways lol. I once played a cold hearted (female dog) qunari who was just a total meanie to everybody. I executed everybody during judgment on the throne, killed the chargers, made the mages my slaves, punched solas, blamed Varric for hawke’s death, supported the return of the circles and basically every other choice that would be considered evil. Surprisingly Vivienne was my bff during that play through. I see it as just a game, it doesn’t represent what I would ACTUALLY do Ikr. It’s not like that play through is my main play through. I find making the same choices every single time is boring and I don’t understand how people have troubles making the evil decisions in video games. Like in Mass Effect when I would choose the renegade options my friend would freak out and say she could never pick those options because they’re not nice. It’s just a game guys, chill lmao

anonymous asked:

So what were the ages you came up with for the Batfam and the Gotham Rogues?

bare in mind, this is just what i came up with based on my own interpretations of the characters/for my own universe when writing fanfic. i tried to think of ages that at least made some sense, especially considering bruce’s massive family and the rogues occupations, such as psychiatry and doctorates that take as long as 8 years to complete. so here’s what i got:

Batfam:

  • Bruce Wayne: 45
  • Dick Grayson: 30
  • Barbara Gordon: 32
  • Jason Todd: 25 
  • Tim Drake: 20
  • Cassandra Cain: 19
  • Stephanie Brown: 19
  • Damian Wayne: 13
  • Harper Row: 18
  • Duke Thomas: 17
  • Alfred Pennyworth: 78

Rogues:

  • Harley Quinn: 34
  • Poison Ivy: 37
  • Selina Kyle: 40
  • Waylon Jones: 27
  • Edward Nigma: 35
  • Jonathan Crane: 43
  • Harvey Dent: 47
  • Victor Fries: 50
  • Oswald Cobblepot: 54
  • Basil Karlo: 48
  • Talia al Ghul: 42
  • Ra’s al Ghul: 3000+ (but outward appearance of 45-50)
  • Joker: unknown, but probably somewhere between 40-60.

Tom’s a real mystery of a character, there’s so much to talk about with him because there’s jut so much you have to leave up to interpretation because the show has yet to explore him yet.

But like any other theorist, i have some of my own ideas and predictions based on his character presented so far.

One of my current big ones is that I have a theory that Tom has abusive/neglectful parents.

Now this is a theory, not a fact, so it could be proven wrong depending on what happens in future episodes. It’s just me giving my own thoughts onto why Tom might be the way he is, and why he does the things he does.

Tom’s dad sounds like way too important of a character to ignore for long, he’s going to be in an episode someday, and when he does i’ll see how accurate this theory is.


So I don’t think it’s any surprise Tom has issues, he has emotional issues and social issues. He deals with anger that ties into his powers and therefore can make him dangerous and rather a bit scary…even if he is a pretty adorable character.

It’s not something he can help, it’s just something he needs to control and it’s why him taking control of his emotions is so important, cause without it he could hurt many people without meaning to.

Here’s the thing about Tom’s anger tho.

It’s hereditary.  

Tom inherited it, from his father.

This isn’t an observation either, it’s confirmed and on his personal wiki.

So these issues Tom is trying to rid himself of, he was born with them. He’s stuck dealing with something he hates and it’s not something that can be easily helped.

We know Tom hates getting angry and hurting people, and we know he’s doing his best to cure himself of these problems. But these problems he hates came from his father, his father is why he deals with this side of himself.

If you think Star’s bitterness towards her mom stinks, can you imagine how angry Tom is that he’s stuck with an illness that his father gave him? One that ruined his life and his relationship with Star?


But here’s another thing confirmed by Nefcy, “Tom doesn’t want to be like his father, he doesn’t want his anger to be his identity..”

Tom doesn’t want to be known for being this harsh, ruthless demon, he doesn’t want to be seen as some angry kid who cares for no one but himself. And he’s shown that on multiple occasions now,

So if Tom refuses to be identified by his illness and doesn’t want to be his father…wouldn’t this mean that it’s likely his father is identified by his own anger?

When they refer to Tom’s anger they don’t mean run of the mill average anger, they mean THIS:

So imagine something like this..or worse, coming out of a larger version of Tom.

Now imagine him acting like this front of his young son, or towards his son.

It’s no wonder why Tom’s a bit messed up isn’t it?

If he was ever treated this way by his father, then it’s no surprise as to why he refuses to turn out the same way.  He wouldn’t want to be the big, scary, horrible, demon his father was in his eyes.


and this would explain a lot about why Tom always takes his punishments.

Tom never fights back, he never excuses his actions, it’s easy for him to take the blame and accept the fact he screwed up.

Which might not seem like much, but if his father/parents blamed him and punished him for things, even things he can’t be at fault for…Then Tom easily taking punishment and accepting blame makes a lot of sense.

He’s used to it.

Heck, when Marco lashed out at him, he backed Tom into a corner. Yes, the all powerful angry demon prince was terrified of being yelled at by Marco that he backed into a corner of the room out of fear.

Not confirmed yet but- 

He might’ve been expecting to be hurt.

He lies to also avoid punishment, which is surprisingly very common from kids that come from abusive households. Tom lying might make a lot more sense if you consider how he’s usually punished back home and that he does it on instinct to protect himself.


Here’s another thing that’s interesting….Tom was the one who got himself help. He saw his anger as a problem and in response he went to find a solution. I bring this up because this means his parents didn’t play any part in finding Tom help for his anger.

So either:

A. They didn’t care about his issues and therefore didn’t try to find a solution to something they should’ve known was a problem. 

B. They’re so unaware and neglectful of their child’s problem (Which is harder to believe, because it’s inherited and they should know that) that they didn’t do anything.

Or C. They want Tom to continue this behavior and don’t find any problem with it whatsoever.

If Tom didn’t get any support from his parents to cure his illness and had to handle it all on his own then his parents aren’t doing a good job no matter which one of these they stand in.


But this idea also applies to Tom and his isolation.

Tom has no friends, he’s alone, and the closest relationships he’s presented currently are Marco and two people he hired.

He doesn’t talk about his parents, heck his parents didn’t even show up to THE BLOODMOON BALL for him. (( The Fuc-))

Tom being unsocial might make much more sense if you consider his parents might be the reason he’s uncomfortable trying to talk to people.

Heck, maybe his dad’s bad influence is what caused Tom be be considered unlikable and why people choose to stay away from him.

They assume Tom is just like his father, and they fear who he is and refuse to spend time with someone like that.

Or maybe they enjoy the dad’s tyrannical rule and power, and think Tom is weak and soft in comparison to him, so they avoid him for that reason.

(( Considering how angry the demons at the ball were with Tom’s softer changes…it makes me wonder how his kingdom really views him as their future leader.))

Tom doesn’t seem to have anyone, if he had help from his parents sooner these issues could’ve been solved way before he was 14-15.

Tom could’ve had proper guidance, friends, he wouldn’t be dealing with these issues nearly as much.

There’s so much his parents could’ve done and can still do for him and yet everything Tom has done that has helped him he’s done on his own accord.

I don’t know about Tom’s mother, but if she’s still around she’s not exactly doing much for her son’s cause.

And Tom’s dad…well, i think it’s fair to assume Tom’s dad won’t be winning any awards for parenting based on what we know about him.

If Tom hates him as a role model and is probably utterly terrified of him, I think making any assumptions about Tom being abused by his father/parents isn’t too much of a stretch.

A/N: The beginning of my Gibbs x O.C. (Gina) story! I mentioned this in the teaser, but I wrote this over a year ago and was into planning out O.C.s pretty intensely. Her faceclaim is Christina Hendricks and to be honest the character is loosely based off of my own personality and interests. Obviously I don’t really write O.C.s anymore, but thanks to my amazing beta @amanda-teaches this baby is hitting your dash! Feedback is especially appreciated!! If you know of any NCIS peeps who don’t follow me, pass this baby around!
