but i think i really like this a lot

yuichiro  asked:

how about... star headcanons. a lot of pokemon reference the stars in some way, so what sort of roll do you think the stars themselves serve in-universe? are they mystical? revered? are they pokemon themselves?

This is quite a tough one. I’m not sure how I’d make a structured headcanon about something like this, so I’ll just share a few miscellaneous ideas here:

-An ancient text, believed to have come from another world, describes a tale in which a solar deity was usurped and devoured by his animal companion. This companion, a lion of immeasurable strength, made the sky burn hotter, brought fair weather to a world of ice, and went on to rule the planets in the deity’s place. Solgaleo’s status as ‘the beast that devours the sun’ therefore resulted from a translation error - it is in fact ‘the beast that devoured the sun god’.

-In the same text, Lunala was said to come after Solgaleo, to provide light in the places that the lion could not reach. When the two departed from that world, it is claimed that they left the sun and the moon to fulfil their roles in their absence. 

-Some hypothesise that the number of stars in the universe correspond to the number of Solgaleos in existence, but there is no concrete evidence to suggest this.  

-A portion of modern theorists argue that Solgaleo merely has the ability to produce large volumes of light, and that it is only human interpretation that has linked it to the stars. For the most part, scientific theory surrounding stars in the pokémon world is the same as it is in ours.  

doodled a human orisa idea and efi as a lil’ warmup!! i know this is gonna be a popular thing to draw but i wanted to give it my shot!

I took my father to see Rogue One today. I’ve wanted to take him for a while. I wanted my Mexican father, with his thick Mexican accent, to experience what it was like to see a hero in a blockbuster film, speak the way he does. And although I wasn’t sure if it was going to resonate with him, I took him anyway. When Diego Luna’s character came on screen and started speaking, my dad nudged me and said, “he has a heavy accent.” I was like, “Yup.” When the film was over and we were walking to the car, he turns to me and says, “did you notice that he had an accent?” And I said, “Yeah dad, just like yours.” Then my dad asked me if the film had made a lot of money. I told him it was the second highest grossing film of 2016 despite it only being out for 18 days in 2016 (since new year just came around). He then asked me if people liked the film, I told him that it had a huge following online and great reviews. He then asked me why Diego Luna hadn’t changed his accent and I told him that Diego has openly talked about keeping his accent and how proud he is of it. And my dad was silent for a while and then he said, “And he was a main character.” And I said, “He was.” And my dad was so happy. As we drove home he started telling me about other Mexican actors that he thinks should be in movies in America. Representation matters.

Witch Tip

Once you get rid of the line between magic and mundane, coming up with ideas is much less of a challenge. There is no “normal” you and “witchy” you. It’s all a conglomerate that creates the way you experience life as a whole.

         I suppose I owe you a ‘thank you’ for getting me out of the lab every now and then.
                                       Well now, we have husbands and kids.
                  But that doesn’t make our relationship any less important.

i had a spare moment so i tried to figure out what my lone wanderer’s parents looked like

Valentines with Ruby & Charon

Ok, so normally I would just post the images, but I feel like I need to add a little more background to them, so there’s gonna be some text in between some of them.

So it’s Valentine’s day in the Capitol Wasteland, & Ruby has a card she wants to give Charon. At this point, they’re just friends. They do have feelings for each other, they just…don’t really know it yet, lol.

Ruby’s card is neatly written with a cute drawing on the bottom. She kept the message sweet & silly, & not too mushy, since she didn’t want Charon to feel awkward.

Charon loves it, because it’s just so…Ruby. He doesn’t really wanna let on how much he loves it though, so he just says thank you.

Then, Charon surprises Ruby with his own card.

Ruby had NO IDEA that Charon even knew Valentine’s day was coming up, nor did she think that he would spend the time to make her a card, especially since he never liked expressing his emotions. Charon’s card is roughly made, but he actually spent a lot of time on it. He found some red paper out in the wastes & used his knife to cut it into a heart–a very jagged heart, but he really tried. He didn’t want to be too mushy either, but he still wanted to let Ruby know he appreciated her friendship.

Ruby can hardly contain herself.

Charon’s card is so simple & sweet, she can’t help the tears that come to her eyes. Charon is worried that she doesn’t like it, but he couldn’t be more wrong. Ruby is always worried that Charon hates her or finds her annoying & feels that if she weren’t holding his contract, he’d leave her in a heartbeat. So Charon’s card, as simple as it was, really did let her know he appreciated her as a friend, & not just an “employer.”

After a minute or so, she can’t contain herself, & throws her arms around Charon in a tight hug & cries.

And it was the best Valentine’s day ever! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

i think one of the reasons that i like cal so much is that he has ambitions and goals and dreams outside of mare

anonymous asked:

Hey there! Do you have any tips for drawing humans? I don't seem to get the faces quite right. Or any "special" poses. I just draw them over and over in the same poses with the same face and urgh.. it's so difficult. What did you do to get so good? Did you do any character studys or drew persons in random poses? What did you do?

creative use and study of references! the human body is like an insanely complicated machine. you’re not going to know how to build it unless you consider each part individually.

it takes practice to make dynamic poses actually give the feel you want

you can tell in 2013 the pose looks stiff and somewhat unnatural, even though the proportions are technically correct. it just doesn’t really hit the mark. in the piece i did last night, the proportions aren’t actually that superb, but it has a way stronger execution.

if you study how others do their work, it definitely helps, too. trying out their techniques to practice will help meld together what you’re already doing, and finding comfortable ways to do new techniques. 

do lots of figure drawing, but don’t pretend you know what you’re looking at! look at the human body as shapes, and translate the rough edges into the imperfect lines that they are

as far as Same Face Issue, this can be changed really easily! this can be fixed by focusing on: chin shape, hairline, and nose

i made a little example to show that with the same base, i can build chuck and the swaingels and still give them unique features

now just do that a million times over! i think last year i did around 500 pieces. you’ll feel crappy, because even after 20, you might not see huge leaps and bounds. you’ll start to grasp it better after time!

“There’s a million reasons why this shouldn’t work…but there’s one reason why it should…”


7 Weeks

Two pink lines. What the fuck. No, this couldn’t be happening.

I shook the stick a few good times, knowing the box says you’re really not supposed to but I thought that maybe if I did it hard enough, maybe...just maybe, it would fix the error. Because this was clearly an error. This was clearly a manufacturing error. It was the test, it had to be. The test was defective, the test was clearly defective. Because there was no way this could be right, there was absolutely no way that this test could actually be positive, there was no way I could actually be…pregnant…

Oh God.

The air cinched from my lungs as I plopped down on the toilet seat of my bathroom, the test barely dangling between my loose fingertips over my bent kneecap. Shit. I flicked my head back and forth, shutting my eyes as the heat began to travel from the warped pit of my stomach up to my cheeks, filling them with a sickening flush. Shit, shit, shit. How could this have happened? How could I have let this happen?

My shaken thoughts quickly juggled between ‘what the fuck am I gonna do’ and ‘holy shit….I gotta tell him’. Him. Him being a guy that would probably want nothing to do with this, a guy that had a whole entire world of speculation and scrutiny to deal with considering he was…famous. Him being a guy that I didn’t even really know, a guy that I hadn’t even spoken to since the night he…well, apparently impregnated me. The mere thought of having to speak to him, to tell him this news when we literally didn’t know a lick about each other, made the nerves start to creep up my spine.

I popped my eyes open and tentatively peered down at the little stick of death that was in my hand. Maybe I don’t have to tell him, I innocently thought with a tiny shrug, the idea being swiftly washed away by my own good conscience.

Letting out a loud groan, my upper body tumbled over as I let my head hang down between my parted knees, my arms dramatically slumping to the floor.  

I had to tell him. I had to tell Niall.
