coloring is getting easier

For anyone upset about Club Penguin

Animal Jam is the next best thing.


You can still customize your avatar, but there are a lot more options in AJ, such as species, color, secondary color,  pattern, and eyes.

It is also much easier to get clothes and there are a lot more options.

You can still have pets like Puffles, only they are actual real animals. (i.e. cats, dogs, hummingbirds)

The “dens” in AJ are way bigger and more customizeable than the igloos in CP.

There are still things like “tip the iceberg!”

Minigames still exist also!

I loved this Animal Jam to death when I was younger and thinking about it, it’s still pretty fun. 

TL;DR if you miss Club Penguin, Animal Jam will fill the void in your heart quite nicely

Reasons you should watch Bojack Horseman
  • Accurate portrayal of depression
  • A canon ace main character
  • Takes on controversial topics with humor (abortion, Bill Cosby, Veteran praise, etc)
  • Animal puns and a million background puns
  • Relatable main characters
  • Accurate portrayal of abusive home situation and it’s affects
  • It’s beautiful
  • Crazy amounts of foreshadowing and full circle pay off
  • Shows both healthy and unhealthy relationships
  • A female main character puts her career in front of her love life for a while
  • Realistic portrayal of a couple who is middle aged but doesn’t want children
  • Explores hollywood toxicity and the ‘the grass is always greener’ meantality
  • Accurate description and portrayal of life and stagnation (the point in life where you finally stop growing and changing)

Also really good lessons I learned

  • You aren’t obligated to accept anyone’s apology
  • 'When you look at someone through rose colored glasses all the red flags just look like flags’
  • 'It gets easier. Everyday it gets a little easier. But you gotta do it everyday that’s the hard part’
  • Sometimes you have to just stop expecting someone to be a good person so you aren’t disappointed when they aren’t
  • Sometimes happiness is selfish and you can’t be apologetic for it
  • It’s easier to fix other’s problems than your own
  • Sometimes it’s too hard to be a grand hero and you just can’t do it
  • You have to take responsibility for you own actions, even if you did have a tough break and a shitty upbringing
  • Sometimes even though someone loves you, it’s not enough
  • Never EVER snort Bojack the heroin

Advance Illustrations / Term 9 / Jason Holley 

Part 2. I tend to do 2 steps for sketches. First I do an idea sketches, which is just brain storming ideas, compositions, and textures. Then I do an more detailed sketches thats is close to final with adding limited colors and values already so its easier to get critique and shortens time for myself to get to the final. Also in this class, research is very important which is good for future because you’ll do a lot of it for almost every illustration assignment. 

Poor thing. Even his bones burned to ashes. With such a death it’s just—

Ahh… But.. the “Earl of Phantomhive” is still with us, after all.

anonymous asked:

What would Hermes look like in your style?

Aahh how did I not see this ask? I’m sorry this one snuck into my ask box somehow and I totally missed it!

This was a fun draw :D!

Request: Pokémon Poffins

Next in our parade of requests is Pokemon Poffins, requested by kaospersona.  I highly recommend that you do this with friends (if for no other reason than because it’s fun and you are NOT kneading all that dough by yourself.) I followed what seems to be the norm in making these by kneading the food coloring into the dough. If you wish (and if you have enough mixing bowls), you can always divide up the ingredients and mix the food coloring in with the wet ingredients, which is by far much easier than trying to get a smooth color while kneading. 

As many of you know, the fillings vary from one type of poffin to another. The choice as to what type of jam or jelly flavor you use is entirely up to you. You don’t even have to use a jam or jelly: for my bitter blue poffin, I made a cream cheese dip with dill, parsley, garlic salt, and pepper, and used that. Your options are endless. 

~Ingredients~

Bread:

  • 2 - 3 cup Flour, and more as needed
  • ½ cup Milk
  • 2 tbsp. Sugar
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • 2 tbsp. Butter
  • 1 tsp. Yeast
  • 2 Eggs
  • Food coloring
  • Sprinkles or seed toppings

Filling:

  • Jams, Jellies, and other fillings of choice

Prep Time: 1 ½ hrs.  |  Bake Time: 10 - 15 min.

Makes: 8 - 10 poffins

~Instructions~

Step 1.) Follow the instructions on your yeast packet to prep the yeast. Wipe down a surface where you will be kneading your dough.

Step 2.) In a mixing bowl, combine your milk, sugar, salt, butter, and 1 beaten egg. 

Step 3.) Add in 1 cup flour as well as the yeast. Combine, then slowly add in the remaining 2 cups of flour until you have a kneadable dough (this may take more or less flour for some.) 

Step 4.) Flour your kneading surface and your hands. Split your dough into 8 - 10 pieces and begin the kneading process: Add in 1 - 2 drops of food coloring if desired, then food the ball in half and knead for 8 - 10 minutes. Do this with all of the pieces of dough (see? This is where your friends come in handy. If you are also intending to have more than one of a color, you can wait until the second kneading to split up the dough to make things go faster.)

Step 5.) Spray a wide-bottomed bowl with cooking spray and place the kneaded balls into the bowl, rolling them around to pick up the grease. Cover the bowl with a towel when done, and allow to rest for 50 min.

Step 6.) After the first rest, knead each ball for 1 - 2 min. and allow to rest again for 10 - 15 min.

Step 7.) Preheat oven to 350 °F.With a rolling pin, flatten out each ball until it is large enough that you can easily fit 1 tbsp. of filling (there should be about 2 inches of dough around the filling.) Pinch the dough closed around the filling, careful to not let any slip through (your poffin will come apart.) Be sure that the dough has combined along the seam- even if there is no filling in the seam, it can still come apart if it wasn’t pinched together enough. 

Step 8.) Gently mold your poffins into the desired shape and arrange them seam-down on a greased baking sheet. (you may need to do two batches, as they will expand.)  Beat the second egg and brush the tops with the egg. You can use this to glue the sprinkles to the top of your poffin.

*Tip: as you will see in the picture below, the egg can brown on your poffins, so if you don’t want that, just use the egg to glue on the sprinkles and don’t brush on any extra. 

Step 9.) Bake for 10 - 15 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 min. Serve warm!

~Results~

There were a few that broke open during the baking process, but even those were gobbled up by my roommates and me. The bread is soft and mild, a good base for any filling you choose (even if you have to scrape it off the pan and back into your poffin!) This was a fun recipe to make, and I would like to do them again sometime to try out more fillings!

It’s been a while since I’ve colored something so thoroughly; simple coloring styles are just easier to get out there. I can’t decide if I like the stark white background or that pinky color I associate with them.
