excellent characters

Another warm up painting from the other day, loosely based on one of my childhood kitties.  She was an excellent judge of character – she liked my (now) husband right away!

Today’s excellent character of the day is Aqua from the Kingdom Hearts series!

Aqua is truly a good person. She wanted to become a Keyblade Master, and become a Keyblade Master she did! She never strays from the path of the light and is always working to help her friends stay on that same path. While it doesn’t quite work out for them all, she tried her best to keep them safe, and did all that she could. She loves her friends so much - she was even willing to sacrifice herself to help them! Keep on being excellent, Aqua!

What do you think about a game: Bendy and the Ink machine?

Never played it, but seen gameplay of the first two chapters. It is really good. Great and mysterious story, excellent mechanics, and awesome characters and voices.

In regards to the new Overwatch character

Keep in mind that Efi Oladele is an 11 year old child. Although I am very ecstatic to have her as a part of the team, knowing how nasty the Overwatch fandom gets at times, I just would like to clarify that Efi is a CHILD. I don’t wanna see any “Age is just a number” posts, shipping her with much older characters, or making NSFW drawings of her, so please keep in mind that Efi is an 11 year old child @ overwatchfandom

@namtif I had a feeling that their heights would end up being the next possible question from my post lol!

A while ago @mlscience did an incredible job at calculating Chat Noir’s height from the dimensions of the Mona Lisa! Their use of math is way beyond my abilities or comprehension, but I can try my best at estimating an approximate scale for how tall they could be. Just remember, I’m probably not going to be very accurate. ^_^

It took me a bit to find some decent images that showed his full body with a open hand for scale. Thankfully for the wonderful pictures provided by @officialmiraculousladybug I got this excellent character model reference:

I was able to mark the length of his hand, and the number of those that would fit within his height. As you can see he is about 9 hands high (insert horse jokes haha)
But just to be sure, and have a reference for Marinette as well, I applied the same measurement to another image:

Again I got close to about 9 hand lengths in his height. So if according to my previous estimate, Adrien’s hands are about 20cm long, then that is 20 x 9 = 180cm or roughly 5ft 10in. Marinette’s is about 8 hand lengths, which would be 20 x 8 = 160cm or 5ft 3in. Giving a few centimeters for a margin for error, they could both be slightly taller or shorter than my measurements.

Today’s excellent character of the day is Roadhog from Overwatch!!!

Roadhog is a big man (7′3″ WOW!!!) with an even bigger heart!! He can come across as gruff and cruel to those he doesn’t know but if you’re his pal, Junkrat, be prepared for a whole lotta awesome!! He’s a funny guy with some super neat tattoos!! Keep on being excellent, Roadhog!!!

I’m hella proud of mark lee rn. it takes guts to go on a rap show esp when you’re from SM bc SM isn’t known for rap. he also didn’t try to use NCT to boost his ranking and instead chose to introduce himself as a student of SOPA for fairness. he also took the criticism well and not one time did he look arrogant. stan mark lee stan talent, humility and overall excellent character

The Prophet (ﷺ) said:

“I guarantee a house in Paradise for one who gives up arguing, even if he is right; and a house in the middle of Paradise for one who abandons lying even when joking; and a house in the highest part of Paradise for one who makes his character excellent.”

‘Horizon Zero Dawn’ Review: The game’s greatest strength is its protagonist Aloy

  • Horizon Zero Dawn‘s Aloy isn’t a unique or engaging character just because she’s a woman. Instead, she’s unique and engaging and also happens to be female.
  • Her strengths are an amalgam of what happens when a video game protagonist is designed with a nuanced personality and real, honest emotions.
  • Simply put, she’s an excellent example of good character design through and through, and I relished the time I spent with her. Read more

Beautiful words masterlist.

Cr.

Series based on this post about beautiful words. Involves angst, fluff and mentions of sex in each part. I wanted this series to focus more on relationships and how they change depending on the people, and though a study of character would be a good way to explore said theme. Please read the warnings carefully.


Cr.

Jungkook- Serendipity

ser¦en|dip¦ity

[ˌsɛr(ə)nˈdɪpɪti]

NOUN

  1. the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way

Summary: It was when you were falling back into the hazy comfort of the past to escape the problems which were crowding in on you that he came hurtling back into your life. And as much as you wanted to deny it, the fact that you had missed him still stood.


Cr.

Taehyung- Eternitarian

E-ter-ni-‘ter-E-an

[ɪˈtəːnɪti,iːˈtəːnɪtɛːrɪən]

NOUN

  1. One who believes in the eternity of the soul

Summary: Taehyung’s grandmother had always taught him to see the joy in the world, unveiling every crevice to show the blossoms of beauty that hid there. And even when she was gone, and her loss burned heavy in his chest- but eventually even the brightest stars must eventually fall low.


Cr.

Jimin- Redamancy {coming soon}

Re’-dam-a’-ncy

[riːdam’ansi]

NOUN

  1. A love returned in full; an act of loving the one who loves you

Summary: You had thought that he was gone, that you were alone; yet when a pair of bedraggled looking shoes turn up at your door, followed by an even rougher looking boy- you think it’s true what they say about your fate following you.


Cr.

Namjoon-Liberosis {coming soon}

Li’-ber-o’-sis

[lʌɪ’bəːo’sɪs]

NOUN

  1. The desire to care less about things—to loosen your grip on your life, to stop glancing behind you every few steps

Summary: You had always been aware that having a friend who was entirely invisible wasn’t normal- but truly you hadn’t cared. So when the steps you took started to look less and less like the pair you had become accustomed to, it was only normal that panic would set it’s course in fraying edges.


Cr.

Hoseok- Ebullience {coming soon}

Eb-ulli’-ence

[ɪˈbʊlɪəns]

NOUN

  1. The quality of being cheerful and full of energy; exuberance.

Summary: A flower in your hair, a smile behind your eyes and a myriad of scars over your heart is the only hint you have to find your soulmate. Yet, as time wears on and you find the light of said smile dimming, it becomes harder and harder to differentiate what you believe and what is true.


Cr.

Yoongi- Metanoia {coming soon}

Met’-a-no-ia

[mɛtəˈnɔɪə]

NOUN

  1. change in one’s way of life resulting from penitence or spiritual conversion.

Summary: A late night, drink in hand, lights blurring his eyes: Yoongi was used to all of it. Hated loving it, loved it because he craved it and craved it because he needed it. But a late night, a hand slipped into his own, a soft gaze meeting his own is enough to perhaps to bring him back to himself.


Cr.

Seokjin- Sophrosyne {coming soon}

So-phro-syne

[səʊˈfrɒzɪniː]

NOUN

  1. An excellence of character and soundness of mind; deep awareness of one’s true self; inner happiness and peace

Summary: While he is bathed in light, you hang back in the dark. While he flies, you stay stubbornly planted on the ground. It’s only when he sees you hanging onto to the side of a tree one day that he takes it upon himself to lift you up with him. And it was then that you realised that maybe he wasn’t as perfect as you had always believed.

Queenie Goldstein, aka my whole heart. Can we just take a second to appreciate what an excellent character she is? I feel like the whole “strong female character” role has become so one-dimensional (unfortunately). But then THIS babe comes along, and is confident in her femininity but is a total badass at the same time and is perceptive and intelligent but cares for people and the greater good and UGH. She’s great guys. Queenie is my queen 👑

Today’s excellent character of the day is Mohammed Avdol from Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure!

Avdol is a caring man, willing to put his own life at risk for the sake of his friends. He’s wise and understanding of his friends’ feelings, and he tries to help them as best he can. He’s big and strong and has a deep sense of right and wrong. He always wants to do the right thing. I’m crying right now. Keep on being excellent, Avdol!
