dragon hide

okay i know it Doesn’t Actually Work Like That, but i love the fact that the Blue Eyes White Dragon and the Dark Magician are referred to as natural enemies by shadi (and I think others too).

because, before the Egyptian mythology of yugioh was really fleshed out, this is pretty easy to buy. Atem and Seto are adversaries. dragons and wizards are common fixtures in fantasy and often pitted against each other in stories. okay, cool. but then there’s the revelation that monsters, ESPECIALLY those two, are tied to human souls. and it just makes me laugh because I’m like 99.8% certain Mahad and Kisara never ONCE met each other but their souls are apparently ready to throw down on sight, any time of day, no questions asked, because their respective loved ones are engaged in an eternal pissing contest

Happy birthday @nipuni! You are an amazing artist and human being, and your work has been one of my biggest inspiration the last few years. I hope you like this little something with Nalia ;w; I’ve been wanting to draw her for so long, she’s so beautiful ;^; 

featuring hamlet-like pose because yes. 

the dragon emojis of emojipedia, ranked

samsung: this dragon is my best friend. will protect her with my life. just trying to share the magic orb. cute whiskers, cute horns, cute tail. i love her


emoji one: simple design, excellent execution. complete with adorable tongue and beard. a magnificent beast.

facebook: fierce, majestic flying serpent. a poufy tail, a lovely orange mane, long, flowing whiskers. this girl could fly away with my heart, and also a chinese river. 

microsoft: lovely orange fans. he’s still growing and learning, but he’ll get there. steps on his own tail sometimes. doing his best.

emojidex: old dragon but good dragon. fur instead of scales gives points for uniqueness, as do the interesting horns, but our old guy seems to be in an uncomfortable position.

messenger: this dragon enjoys reading about history. seems to be missing her back feet. also could do with some core excersizes, as her head seems to be a tad big for her body. she has many passions, and gets easily distracted.

apple: while the design is there, the actual execution seems to have gone a bit off. tail is too twisted to be comfy, and the modeling is pretty badly done. greedy for the orb; loses points for unwillingness to share.

mozilla: this dragon is very confused, but she’s at least trying to share the orb. two arms on one side?

HTC: only dragon on the list with wings, however, this dragon is not only blind but seems to have a dysfunctional single foot and a stub tail. and a leaf for an ear.

twitter: designer seems to have a vague understanding of how hands work. the poor dragon’s head is far too big for his body.

LG: seems in theory a good design, but in reality, this dragon is fucking ugly.

google: basic misunderstanding of limbs and linework. an revolting mess.

I forgot that during the Thordak fight, Scanlan had a brief conversation with him that consisted of Thordak asking him if thats all he had, scanlan saying yes, and then the dragon saying good in the most threatening satisfyingly terrifying voice imaginable. 

and Scanlan actually squeaks. He shrinks back, while in battle, and squeaks in complete terror. 

Its so cute, but at the same time so sad.

I was tagged by @tel-abelas-mofo (thank you very much–I do indeed love tags!!!  even though I often fail to do them in a timely manner) to share my lock/home screens, the last selfie I took, and the last song I listened to!

Since my last selfie is basically an ode to sleep deprivation, I also added an amusing one hahaha.  ANd the last song I listened to was “Down Once More” from Phantom of the Opera bc I was having a Moment.  My friend sent me a prompt for a “villain kiss” and my first thought was “TRACK DOWN THIS MURDERER HE MUST BE FOUND” bc that’s just how my brain works apparently.

I will taggggg @misslestrange274 @rocket2saturn @artwaffle142 @madlanddreams and.  Uhm.  That’s it bc I’m bad at tags but anyone who would like to do the thing, please consider yourselves tagged!
