i cant believe im into star wars now like honestly
i didn’t give a FUCK about star wars before this movie came out. the greatest emotional attachment i had to star wars was the scene w/ anakin and obi-wan and the like, lava n shit, and obi-wan was like ‘you were the chosen one!!’ as he cries, and i remember that scene got me really hard when i was younger, like we saw it in the theater and even though over the years i forget almost all the surrounding context for that scene, it still stuck with me and made me feel sad
but now im like, into it, give me the star wars memes, give me the cool new characters, im diggin’ it, this is Nice

This was suppose to be purger Kudako with dead people everywhere but because i couldn’t figure out what he would be wearing, this is now Kudako in training.
(I’ve seen 2 pre-dragon Kudako pictures. One of them gave him shoulder spikes and i don’t think that’s canon anymore, since it was the image to a chapter that no longer exists. The one on deviantart doesn’t show much of the clothing, but it’s all black and mostly covered by a cape. Now, I know that capes have been pretty popular for armor throughout history, but to me they don’t feel like something he would wear outside of winter, and more to the point they feel kind of impractical. Especially if your fighting style relies on lots of quick movements and spirals - wouldn’t the cape woosh around and slow you down, and be easier for the enemy to grab? wouldn’t it get in your way if you had to change directions quickly? And since most capes exist to keep people warm, I feel like wearing a black cape during battle would lead to overheating and dehydration more quickly. I guess it’s possible the woosh might cool someone down, but it doesn’t feel worth it. Now, Kudako’s not an idiot, he would probably wear armor, and I can reasonably assume Aur’s armor is modeled after Spiral armor, but you still need to wear clothes under the armor. I’m not too clear on what Kudako’s age was when we left for the Inner Realms. I’ve generally assumed it to be between 25-35, or past a growing age at any point, but I can’t be certain. Regardless, if i remember correctly, he was there for about 10 years? At least a few, since it was something like “for years they didn’t know what lurked at the edge of their country” and clothes don’t last forever. He would need to get a new set at least once, but from where? He’s way too tall to steal anything premade. He can probably sew, but what would the clothes of someone without emotions look like? It would probably be simple and practical, but that can mean different things to different cultures, and if he’s accustomed to a certain cut of fabric he might go for that. But then we get to boots, and he’s less likely to know how to cobble, and if he’s taller then everyone he definitely has bigger feet then everyone and I haven’t been thinking too much about this at all)
A young Kudako before the Raze, still learning how to fight. Simple training clothes and his hair in a braid, because if I remember correctly braids are important in the Spiral, and they’re also a great way to keep hair out of the eyes.
This is just a small sketch, cause i really like how it looks. Still gonna inking, color it, shade it, all that stuff
I decided to re-do the book I had made during college in hopes of getting it published this year. I’ve already sent some copies of my manuscipts to some publishers. Anyway, the book is about my home, Tacloban, and also the areas around it. There are 3 sections: Tempest, Today, then Tomorrow. Before anything else.
Q: Why is it gold/yellow in tint and why is it the cover Leyte
A: Well. I didn’t want it to be in grayscale. I think this shows all the things experienced by the places through the years. From storms, to celebrations of festivals. The Leyte landing memorial also reminds people of Gen. Douglas McArthur, especially his famous line, “I shall return” during the World War II. Also, during the 2013 after the super typhoon Haiyan had passed, I think there is no better photograph than this to represent majority of Leyte.
Also, some of the sample photographs are found in my previous project Tacloban : Today/Tomorrow. Basically, the sample photos here are the 3rd part of the book. The first and second art found here, including the campaign for it.
Number of blankets I sleep with: A sheet, a cover and like a fluffy throw blanket

What made me want a tumblr: Gifs. Pretty sure it was the gifs. And being able to post my art
Why my URL: It was both a tribute to Grave of the Fireflies (Hotaru no Haka) and my own frame of mind, battling some anxiety issues. I’m actually mulling over changing it though because its kinda weeb-ish and I’m starting to brand myself for post graduation job searches so maybe a slightly more professional name is in order
I suppose it would be playing Pokemon Red way back when it came out here. I must have been about 9 years old. I loved it so much, it really fostered a love of adventure and exploration in me. I don’t think anything could have appealed to me more!
I remember having a strategy guide book with a shiny pink cover, and so many of the listed learned moves and levels for pokemon were totally wrong. I can remember playing it in the playground at school, just like every other kid, everyone trading and trying to catch them all. I can distinctly remember the last one I needed was Pinsir (discounting Mew) and someone was going to trade me one, but then they moved away. Speaking of Mew there was obviously all the rumours about the truck in Vermilion. And rumours about Pikablu too.
I remember all the kids playing with the trading cards, until they inevitably got banned from school. No one else seemed to be able to get a hang of the rules of the game though, all they did was fight over Charizards. I think I still had my cards until only a few years ago. Which reminds me of the Ampharos card i made myself! Coloured in with pencils and everything. I think I made it super OP.
I have this one aunt who never understands anything I post on Facebook. Like, she’ll get part of it, but will be way off on the gestalt. I posted that Newsweek cover that said “Why are White Americans Dying Younger?” with my addition of “Karma,” and she was like, “So why are white Americans dying younger?” Today I posted a Shonda Rhimes quote about how we praise mothers for diminishing themselves and making sacrifices for their children and she was like, “But motherhood is important and a good choice.”
