cat with two different colored eyes

Yankee Cat

The Maine Coon, sometimes called the Yankee Cat, is one of the largest domesticated breeds of cat. It has a distinctive physical appearance and valuable hunting skills. It is one of the oldest natural breeds in North America. The Maine Coon is a large and sociable cat, hence its nickname, “the gentle giant.” It is characterized by a prominent ruff along its chest, robust bone structure, triangular body shape, an uneven two layered coat with longer guard hairs with a silky satin under layer undercoat, and a long, bushy tail.

Physiologically and physically, how do you think Alteans are different from humans? I think I've seen somewhere they can't have brain freeze but it doesn't satisfie my need for xenobiology.

The “as canon as I can make it”

The thing about not getting brain freeze would suggest something’s up with their arteries- that they’re either arranged differently from ours, unaffected by cold, the carotid artery is particularly insulated, or, all of the above. There’s an excellent post on it that I’m unfortunately not able to find right at this moment.

They may sweat slime.

While it’s presented subtly, their ears are in fact mobile (see: s1e1- Allura’s ears perk noticeably when she hears the mice)

The markings underneath their eyes have bioluminescent cells that activate during intense emotional distress and may have other triggers (s1e9, Allura)

Canonically they are shapeshifters which would suggest they have the ability to rapidly build, and digest/metabolize bones and tissues, see Allura doubling her size in s1e10.

The anatomy of their eyes and the colored section of their pupil could suggest a couple of things. First, this might suggest that Alteans have a tapetum lucidum like a dog or cat- allowing them to more efficiently use light- and the extra flick of color inside the pupil is because that layer is a lot thicker and shinier for them so they constantly have a low-level camera-red-eye effect and the color just varies from person to person.

Alternatively the Alteans might actually have ring-shaped pupils and two different irises which can have two different eye colors- which I have no idea how that would work, but would suspect of generating blind spots. Still an interesting thought to play with.

S4e4 shows us that Altean brains/tissues are mostly pink in color, suggesting blood that oxidizes red, like ours, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s the same color- it could be pink or magenta.

Alteans seem to tend on the small side by human standards where even “tall” Alteans like Alfor and Coran are a little shorter than a moderately tall human like Shiro. Lotor’s galra genetics have partially offset it for him but he’s teeny by galra standards- something like two heads shorter than Sendak.

The “Clockie’s personal spin”

I’d just like to direct you to my personal favorite headcanon/semi-theory that Alteans are space fair folk.

Who Is That On Your Instagram?

Jace looked at the photo one more time, a huge smile making his jaw almost ache. He’d been smiling so much more than usual lately and he knew the reason why. Making sure he copied it before he cropped it carefully, he made a small adjustment to the brightness and posted it to his Instagram with the caption ‘there is no stopping this smile’ adding the wink emoji as a secret message.

He hoped it was vague enough to not rile suspicion, Jace wasn’t ashamed, not in the least, he just wanted to keep this bit of happiness to himself for a little longer. Two minutes later his phone was ringing.

“Iz?”, he answered, “Everything alright?”

“Who is that?, she blurted, her voice full of accusation

“Who is who?”

Jace had no idea what his sister was on about now, but she’d always been the nosy one. His mind hadn’t found the connection to what he’d done to warrant her question, that was until she connected the dots for him.

“Who is that on your Instagram?”.

Oh boy, he thought, so much for keeping it to himself. But how did she notice, he was sure he was being so slick. It must have been that caption, he was so stupid and mentally kicked himself. 

“What are you talking about, Iz? I posted a selfie”, he tried to redirect her playing innocent.

“And the arm around you?”, the accusatory and curious tone back. 

Okay so it wasn’t the caption.

“It’s a friend”.

“And you cropped them out why?”

“To be polite and not post their photo in case they don’t want to be on social media”.

“So considerate”, she patronized, and he knew she had to be rolling her eyes. “Do I know this friend?”

“NO”, Jace spoke a bit loud but it was too late now. 

“Oh really, that’s funny because Clary could have sworn that watch your friend is wearing is the one she bought for Simon last Hanukkah. And I’m pretty sure I got him a checked blue button down for his birthday, I think your friend is wearing a similar shirt. How funny is that?”

“Hilarious”, Jace deadpanned although his stomach felt nervous like it was flipping around in his gut.

“Even funnier is that Simon told Clary he was going on a date last night. When she asked if it was a first date he said no, and told her he really likes the guy a lot. Also pretty hilarious is that you’ve been kinda busy lately, and - um - smiling more”, she sounded so very smug in her assessment. 

Check and mate, Izzy knew it, her tone of voice said as much, he knew it too. Busted, no way out now, perhaps it was time for him to let everyone in on why he was so happy lately. It wasn’t a bad thing, he really cared a lot about Simon, he even let himself think the word ‘love’ once or twice. 

“Okay”, he huffed in resignation. “It’s Simon”

The squeal on the other end of the phone had Jace pulling it far from his ear. 

“I knew you were seeing someone, but Simon? Oh my god this is too cute”.

“Can you calm down please, Iz”, Jace sighed. 

“So it is Simon?”, a third voice came muffled over the phone from Isabelle’s end.

“Let me guess, Clary is with you?”. 

“Of course”, Isabelle answered like he was ridiculous.

“Okay so I’m glad you two figured it out, but can you keep it to yourselves for now. I really like him too, and I just want to enjoy this before everyone starts freaking out over it”.

“Too late”, Clary giggled in the background.

“Too late, what? Iz what did you do?”.

“Your notifications are about to blow up. Alright bye love you see you later”

“Iz? Izzy? Isabelle what do you mean?”.

It was too late she’d ended the call, and then Jace’s phone started buzzing and chiming incessantly. He had a bunch of missed texts from Alec, Magnus and Raphael, but his Instagram was going off. 

Opening the app he checked his last post and saw Izzy’s comment. 

Oh fuck she didn’t.

‘Hi Simon, you two are so cute. Congrats big brother you landed a good one’ To add extra emphasis she plastered two lines of different color hearts and the heart eyes emoji .

The resulting comments were his friends and family in varying states of shock or delight, a bunch were congratulatory, some hilariously rude, and then there was Simon’s comment. It was life buoy in a sea of insanity, and Jace couldn’t help but let the smile take over yet again. 

‘Cats out of the bag, huh Jace? Congrats to me, I landed a gorgeous one’ with the kiss emoji following. 

Jace ignored every other comment and only answered one, the only one that mattered.

‘There is no stopping that smile because you’re so damn cute ’

The annoying ‘awwwwwwwwww’ Clary commented with right after made Jace roll his eyes but he didn’t care because he’d be meeting his boyfriend, Simon for a lunch date in thirty minutes. But before he could leave, Jace decided to make another post, this time he shared the full photo. Simon was looking at him with the sweetest look on his face, and that is what made Jace smile.

Behind the Scenes!AU: Makeup

I was wondering what each actor would look like in this au, ever since that ask about Shouto, so here are some more headcanons for you guys c:

I might do more makeup HC’s for other characters, but for now I did it for a few of my favorites.

-Izuku uses the most makeup of all of them, and none of it is to change his everyday appearance. It’s simply to make him look like he’s been hit by a bus fifteen times during his matches. He’s gotten really good at stumbling around as though he’s broken bones and he likes to scare the crap out of some of the other actors once in a while.

-Katsuki’s hair is perfect for his role, they were honestly impressed with how much his hair sticks up. But they had to give him colored contacts to make his eyes have that red appearance. He really has dark brown eyes, and it’s surprising how much it softens his features.

-Katsuki also has faint freckles across his nose. (“FRECKLE BROS!!” -Kiri likes to call Izuku and Katsuki that) They cover them with makeup, sadly. The rest of the cast secretly thinks they’re adorable.

-(mentioned before) Shouto has bicolored eyes, which everyone else thinks is awesome, but his hair is only dark red. He has to dye the other half white for his role. But he really likes it, so he keeps it for quite a while afterward. He only needs makeup for the scar.

-Kiri’s hair is held together by hairspray, gel, and sheer willpower. He just wears it down on days he doesn’t need it up, or likes to tie it back in a little ponytail. He actually didn’t have to dye it. And his teeth are also sharp, so there wasn’t a need for fake ones either (how his teeth are like that is a mystery) The minute they added his little scar, he marched around and showed it to everybody he possibly could.

-Kaminari thought it was awesome that he got to have a lightning bolt streak in his hair. Other than styling it differently, he didn’t need much work to fit the role.

-Ochako has to straighten her hair a lot to get it to curve the right way. If she doesn’t, it will turn into loose curls. She has very wavy hair when she isn’t acting and it’s always been something that needed tamed for her roles.

-Shinsou has the darkest hair out of all of them. His hair is really near-black and his eyes are green. He wears colored contacts like Katsuki and was originally going to wear a wig. Due to a bad prank by Kiri and Kaminari, he eventually ended up with his purple hair and a grudge against those two idiots. But he does like the new look and when he’s finished acting, he changes colors a lot to see what it looks like with streaks of different colors.

True story: When I was a kid, I thought boys had blue eyes and girls had brown eyes (because that's how it fell out in my family and that made as much sense as anything). One birthday my godparents gave me a blue-eyed stuffed cat in a dress, so obviously I named him John-cat after my godfather. My family was puzzled, but supportive, and it was only decades later that my mom was telling the story and I was like "oh he was a boy cat because he had blue eyes."

My boyfriend has two different colored eyes.

I wish you could have met him when you were a child.

anonymous asked:

TBH, I think that the reason Maddie the cat changed looks throughout the series is because I believe that her appearance is supposed to represent her innocence. When we first see her with Vlad she is all cute and adorable, but then in later episodes, she turns all evil-looking. I think that the more time she spent with Plasmius, the more evil she became as he unintentionally influenced her, (sort of like Dani maybe, except she was saved in the end after her comeback).

That’s an interesting idea, but personally, I wouldn’t agree with it. While the original Maddie does look a lot more harmless than the later versions, that’s not the only difference. They’re quite clearly two different breeds of cat entirely.

Original Maddie has a large, gray nose and gray paws. Her nose sticks out a bit more like most common breeds of cat, and her ears are large. Her fur is short, and even her eyes are a different color.

Maddie 2 doesn’t have colored paws. Instead, she has a colored tail and underbelly. Her face looks more flat, similar to a Himalayan or Persian. Her ears are tiny, her eyes are red, and her face is long.

It’s not even just that Maddie 2 looks more evil. Flat faced cats just sometimes look like that. That’s why they’re a common choice for the pets of villains. Cats that look more like original Maddie don’t have that problem. That does mean the only real explanations for this are a) Vlad replaced original Maddie or b) the animators decided to give him a more evil-looking cat.

While your theory makes more sense in-story, being around a bad person isn’t going to completely change an animal’s breed. Danielle’s appearance never changed that drastically, and I have a hard time believing animals are capable of being “evil.” If domesticated animals have good owners, they’ll be good pets.

Changeling Study (Eyes)

So besides being able to turn into s human what makes a Changeling so different from a troll? Well a big difference I think is their eyes. Changelings have yellow or green eyes (the sclera) and thin cat like pupils instead of round.

Both Strickler and NotEnrique have yellow eyes. Strickler is shown with mostly yellow eyes, but turn green in the dark. However, Nomura is only shown with green eyes, even in the light.

Except Gladysgro did have the correct color, but had rounded pupils/irises, however she was a minor character and it seems they reused a background troll model for her.

The same goes for two other background trolls. They have thin pupils, but they just seem to be a slightly modified version of Numora’s model.

So aside from Gladysgro and two background trolls, changelings having slit pupils is constant. They have yellow and green Sclera with either red or black irises or pupils. With the exception of Nomura we can assume Chnagelings mostly have yellow Sclera that glow green in the dark. And the only reason we see regular trolls with slit pupils and Gladysgro with rounded pupils is because they are resided character models.

I said no more dogs, and what did you do?! GOT ANOTHER FREAKING DOG,” You sighed as you stared down your boyfriend, Damien Wayne, who had a small puppy in his hands. You didn’t care off he was set to inherit part of a fortune that could cover a thousand plus pets. You had to put your foot down at the three (five if you count his pets at his father’s).

   "But-“ Damian started holding the small mutt puppy up to you. It was cute, with two different colored eyes, fur the matched you own h/c locks, and one ear that was limp and one ear that was pointed up.

  "No-” You said crossing your arms

  “But-” tried again, Alfred the cat, Titus and Jerry all giving you their own versions of the puppy dog eyes.

“No!”

  Damian smiled and flipped the puppy up to show you his butt,“ Butt!”

  You couldn’t help but start to giggle, finally caving,“Fine! Fine! We’ll keep it!”

  “Her!”

  You reached out and Damian put the puppy in your arms. “We’ll keep her,” you corrected yourself, then smiled slyly,“But I get to name her.”

  Damian kissed you temple,“Fair enough, Beloved!”

 The puppy leaned up and licked you chin,“Alright, how about Delilah?”

  Damian gave the puppy a little pat,“Fitting.”

Supercat ER!au prompt: brilliant but slightly bitchy Doctor Grant and hopelessly infatuated med-student (or nurse?) Kara

Cat hates Halloween because she never gets to be at home, enjoying the evening with her young son. No, she’s almost always on duty at the hospital, as there’s almost always a spike in emergencies, as drunk teens and adults make very poor life decisions. She’s seen all manner of lacerations, broken bones, and items jammed in places they don’t belong.

On her usual schedule, she didn’t have time for dunces, and her patience for her patients is even more curtailed every Halloween. She honestly doesn’t care how an injury occurred, so they can all stop lying to her. Oh, I slipped and fell ass-first onto my little brother’s Hot Wheels collection. Well, I tripped over a rock, y’know, in the garden, and landed on a bottle of Vodka.

safeneighbor  asked:

How did you pick your color palette for your game? I'm working on a similar styled game with the same software, there's a link at my blog to the itch io page for some screenshots. I tried to have my only restriction be to use the NES color palette but it's difficult to use. My concern with using any color available is a lack of coherency. Have you had any issues with that? How do you decide colors? Your games style is so clear. It looks awesome, I cant wait for it. Any advice is helpful. Thanks!

This is a fun question, especially since I didn’t really know about palettes when I got into creating pixel art. In fact, I didn’t really learn much about them until I was already a good deal into development, and I had to be forced by my brother and my wife to choose the new green of the grass.

Basically, keep in mind that I’m still new at this, so take my advice with a grain of salt. :)

To start, check out this thread. The whole thing is great, but this section is probably the best guide for picking a palette for pixel art! Required reading, in my opinion, before you continue.

So let’s take a look at your game (thanks for permission to post your images for critique!):

I think your spritework is pretty good in general–kinda has an Earthbound vibe. I’m a fan of the detail on the item shop, and the NPCs have a distinctive “square head” style that works well. Not shown here, but the menu is also nice, the NPCs are funny, and the camera is smooth. But let’s look at the palette:

  • There’s a lot of saturation. Most of the colors all feel equally “heavy”.
  • The luminescence/brightness level is pretty much the same for everything. Again not much contrast.
  • There are a lot of colors. It’s very busy.
  • There are four different conflicting greens–the grass, the trees, the cat/pumpkin eyes & windows, and the wall (which is kinda yellow/brown).
  • There are two “sets” of orange–the house and the pumpkins–and they also clash.

Compared to this, which looks much better. What are the strengths here?

  • There’s only two types of green–the blue-gray-green and the neon green. It compliments the blues well.
  • Using a lot of black helps ground the palette (plus it’s sweet and retro), while the bits of highly saturated colors balance it out.
  • Limited palette! You use fewer colors, which is great. It helps guide the eyes instead of overwhelming them.

A couple ideas for continuing:

First, use Paletton. Pick a nice base color, then use a tool like Paletton to find complimentary colors. I’d recommend either the triad or tetrad options at the top–three or four main colors is a good rule of thumb for any art. Try to use the “big” color squares presented by Paletton for only one or two of the colors–use the different brightness/saturation levels for the rest. For example, I grabbed your pumpkin orange and came up with this color set. You could use the “big” orange, dark shade of orange, dark shade of blue, light shade of yellow, and light shade of light blue. I wouldn’t use all four of the “big” colors it gives you, otherwise you’ll run into saturation/brightness issues again. And then, if you already have one orange, you only really need maybe a darker and lighter shade–you don’t need a whole new orange.

Another option is to try looking at existing palettes, or even consider using those palettes. DB16 and DB32 are good examples. Also check out this list of “Halloween Palettes”. Get a feel for what colors people chose and why. Notice that colors are almost always very limited.

Remember that grass doesn’t always have to be “grass green”. Here’s an experiment with the first image of yours. It’s not done or perfect, and by no means am I saying you have to use this aesthetic, but it’s just to demonstrate what happens when you consolidate colors and desaturate some of them:

I’ve taken out the original green of the grass and made it a darker, desaturated blue. This helps everything else “pop”. It’s sort of the reverse of what I did with The Waking Cloak, which is now a bright, luminescent yellow/green with hints of brown… and also makes things pop. The name of the game is contrast.

In addition, the walls are now gray, and the edges of the path are the same dark green used in the plants. I also changed it so the pumpkins use the same oranges as the house. I desaturated the brown of the path as well. Are you seeing a pattern? Consolidating and reusing colors, and a mix of high and low luminescence

This isn’t really the results of a lot of premeditated secret knowledge about colors, either (I’m a noob, remember?). I just grabbed some screenshots and played with tweaking/replacing the colors that were already there. There’s still stuff to change with this, like the color of the item shop so it pops a bit more with the new colors, or to add a bigger range of luminescence. The grass feels very dark and heavy. Again, I’m not saying use this palette (unless you like it–in which case go for it! But keep in mind to use the same palette in your battle scene).

If you’d prefer to read up on some more technical aspects, a suggestion I’ve heard is the book Color and Light, by James Gurney, though I haven’t personally read it.

I think that about covers it. Let me know if you have more questions! :D

Burning it Down Smaug x Reader: All parts thus far

The moment that you felt the mountain tremble beneath your feet you knew for certain that Bilbo had awoken the beast. Running purely on adrenaline and concern, you rushed through the narrow passageways until you reached a great hall. The sight that met your eyes took your breath away. The hall itself was much larger than you had ever imagined. It was constructed of beautifully carved stone columns and was filled with enough gold to surely buy the entire world. You would have loved nothing more than to admire and explore this architectural work of art for hours on end, but you had to find Bilbo. You hadn’t even begun to formulate any sort of rescue plan, you just knew that you couldnt leave him to face Smaug’s wrath alone.
