I know I’m posting doodles and stuff a lot these days but bear with me because here is another very rough concept-y thing with Hanzo and his noodles that I really liked and will hopefully get to work out properly soon.
Feedback is appreciated also while it’s still possible to change stuff!~
Another milestone, another follow forever! Thank you to everyone who supports this blog, new followers and old. It’s always nice to see you guys getting a kick out of content I also find cute / interesting and I look forward to continuing in the future. Anyway, you know the drill, lets get this under way! Thanks to these blogs for making my dash a happy place.
Look here for a moment: Star and Marco's Friendship + Star’s Wand Theory = ?
So, if you are a big fan of Star vs. The Forces of Evil and a Starco shipper, I suggest you stay and indulge yourself in this post of mine. I will make sure you won’t regret it. 😉
This is long overdue and this is probably me just ranting more of my favorite cartoon animated shows on tv but I still want to put this out there because there are some great animated series out there that don’t really get enough credit because they are deemed “just cartoons” which is really shallow of some people. Just because it’s animated, it doesn’t mean that there is no depth in their characters or story. As I mentioned in my last post about“Zootopia”, there will always be something more than what lies on the surface. I admire the creators of these shows because they really pay attention to details which is important. (I LOVE YOU GUYS! YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE. YOU ROCK!) Ok! back to topic.
Now, we all fell in love with the amazing perky monster fighting Princess from another dimension, Star Butterfly, and her badass adorkable Karate chopping bestfriend on Earth, Marco Diaz, on the first season of “Star vs. The Forces of Evil” ever since their first episode which aired on Disney XD last year. We all watched their adventures, shipped them hard ever since “The Bloodmoon Ball” episode, witness their bond of friendship strengthen from their last episode, and anticipated for their 2nd season to come which finally aired on July this year and not to mention that jaw dropping, sugar pumping trailer! (YAY!)
I’ve been up to date with their episodes this season 2 and there are some important points I would like to share with you all. If you’ve noticed them or not, please feel free to comment your thoughts below my fellow brothers and sisters.
First and foremost, let’s recap what happened with Star’s wand from the last episode of Season 1 to the 1st episode of Season 2. Now, her wand was destroyed and became a new wand with the help of a new unicorn and the wand’s star was broken into two with one missing piece that we now know is in Ludo’s possession as seen from the episode 2 in the show. In S2 ep1, the wand is clearly malfunctioning and acting weird like going berserk in blasting random energy without Star’s authorization. In the recent episode, she’s fixed it with the guidance of Glossaryk by finding the thing that doesn’t belong which was TOFFEE’S FINGER.
I was astonished by this reveal and confirmation that Star’s mom, Queen Moon, DID have a past with Toffee which explains his evil actions during season 1 when he forced Star to destroy her magic wand in order to save Marco with the spell her mom first taught her. His line hinted that he was close with Queen Moon before and it was proven in Queen Moon’s tapestry,
According to the tablet Star has read about her mom, Moon the Undaunted, she had cast her darkest spell that will forever haunt the immortal monster– Toffee. Now, from what I understand from this episode and the previous ones, Moon and Toffee definitely knew each other very well and were very close friends until this very moment weaved in Moon’s tapestry. It definitely means that she probably cursed Toffee and banished him due to a betrayal or a big fight which caused a rift between the two.You can really see Moon’s anger in the picture and the shock from Toffee’s face. It’s kinda hinting that Moon really cursed him because if you’ve notice he can grow his body parts back, all except for his missing finger.
It doesn’t lead much on but Toffee’s finger probably signifies that it is important to both of them; it definitely is symbolic.
Next, Toffee’s line in the last episode of Season 1 clearly had something to do with Marco’s role in Star’s prophecy which is one of the reasons he kidnapped him. He said that Marco was a disappointment even though he was trying to be polite with Marco and didn’t really want to hurt him or Star because he was only after the destruction of the wand. He is expecting something from Marco, that is definite.
And there were moments when Marco would be seen sometimes something related with a suit which we know is Toffee’s main outfit. Plus, Marco doesn’t really know what he’s going to be in the future and this shows him in a suit. It is not for sure but Toffee probably sees Marco’s potential in his plan. So I’m gonna quote what other fans have been theorizing: Toffee is to Moon as Marco is to Star. This is because they clearly have a strong connection with each other.
Thirdly, THIS WOMAN:
Eclipsa. (Her name totally suits her btw and you might know why). She definitely has something to do with what will happen in the future and it will surely have something to do with Star, Marco, Toffee, and Star’s wand. I don’t exactly know what but she definitely signifies something bad will happen and/or she might have something to do with what happened between Moon and Toffee, she is after all the Queen of Darkness. It’s possible! Come on! She married to become queen and gain power then eloped with a monster. She could’ve been the sword that tore apart Moon and Toffee’s friendship. She was queen before Moon could take her place so it kinda makes sense that she was still there when that scene happened.
I’m kind of sad for Glossaryk though. He wasn’t even “tall enough for the ride” but he still saw them all no matter how wonderful or horrible it must have been.
He looks so sad in the tapestries.
He is the Princess’ adviser and guide/teacher when it comes to using their wand and magic but it’s clearly seen that he cannot change their decisions whether it be bad or wrong because they control their own destinies. He is merely a teacher, a guide, an observer in every generation.
BUT HAVE YOU ALSO NOTICED THAT IN MOST OF THE TAPESTRIES, THERE WERE ALWAYS SOMETHING RELATED TO A MONSTER??? Star’s tapestry is already being woven therefore what is about to come might be already prophesied or can still be changed since not much of it has been certainly woven yet. The monster can be anyone: Toffee, Ludo or even Marco (I’m certain each of these 3 will play huge a role in Star’s destiny).
We all know that STAR’S MAGIC IS UNDOUBTEDLY CONNECTED WITH HER EMOTIONS. AND THAT SHE HAS A UNKNOWING CRUSH TOWARDS MARCO. AND THAT THESE FEELINGS CREATE A GOOD EFFECT ON HER MAGIC. HE MAKES HER MAGIC GOOD, POWERFUL AND MAKE THEM WORK PROPERLY BEFORE SHE COULD FIX HER WAND.
Hopefully what I fear won’t happen: that Marco will be the monster that Star has to face. It was seen in season 1 when Marco’s monster arm said that he will always be a part of Marco and that he will never truly be gone so that means that there IS something evil residing within Marco (as it is in everyone) BUT it just needs a trigger.
(I’m anticipating these in the future episodes and after reading the Wiki fandom’s list of episodes synopsis on the future episodes I will look at Jackie for this.
Maybe. She’s not evil but she might be one of the causes something bad to happen between Marco and Star’s friendship’s future. But I’m just putting her as a possibility because she’s a variable in this and not to fully pin this on her because other reasons could be Ludo, Toffee, Eclipsa, or even Miss Heinous.)
STARCO FOREVER!!!! *FANGIRLS*
~~~More of this theory to develop in the future. We’ll just have to wait and see what ride they have in store for us. EXCITED FOR THE NEW EPISODES! WOHOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!!
Hi, your art is amazing! may i know what technique and software you use for turning things around (eg. when a duck turns around in full view). Also, I read that you animate these in Flash, does this mean you make all the art in flash as well or Do you use photoshop? thanks in advanced ^.^
A few people have been asking about my drawing/animation process and I just haven’t had time to respond properly yet. Hopefully this post will work as a start and time allowing, I’ll go into a little more detail in the future.
I do all of the animation and illustration in Flash. There was a time when I painted most of my backgrounds in Photoshop, but at this point I mostly only use it to export GIFs made in flash…
For making things rotate, I start by drawing front,side and rear views, trying to make sure that all of the features line up. (Since this duck is symmetrical, I can get away with just one side view and flip it horizontally for the other side.) These views work as keyframes to base the rest of the drawings on.
The next step is to draw the position in between each of the keyframes…
Then draw frames between those frames and repeat as needed, depending on the length of the animation (in the case of this duck, 16 frames)
anyone else secretly hoping that Tsurugi’s ‘’I’m the true Legendary Savior - you Kyurangers are no longer needed - I’m strong enough to defeat JM all by myself’’ stuff is kinda like Taiga going ‘’I’m the only doctor needed’’. and that like Taiga, Tsurugi wants to bear the weight all by himself so that no one else gets hurt? And so he tries (in his own way) to ‘’persuade’’ the Kyu-team into quitting by being really dismissive of their abilities and calling them demeaning names like ‘’teenager, emotional blank slate, dog’’ etc instead of acknowledging them as warriors.
on a side note, I’m not saying that his arrogance is a lie or that he’s pretending tho… he’s freakishly powerful and he knows and acts like it.
I don’t know.. I’m just hoping he isn’t like ‘’Step aside kids, let me, the LEGENDARY savior handle it so that I can get all the fame and everyone will love me!!’’ but more like: ‘’I’m the strongest, let me handle it by myself. If anyone is going to get hurt, it should be me.’’
even though his behavior so far seems like he’s leaning more towards the former, (not caring that a
consumarz is about to explode and kill people and instead being more worried about whether or not his legends were erased, etc) but a part of me still wishes that this behavior isn’t a 100% representation of who he is on the inside. Like I said, I believe he really is this arrogant and I love him for it but I refuse to believe he really, truly doesn’t care about other people…
This gif hunt includes 100+ textless/small/medium gifs of Park Jinyoung (AKA JR. from Got7). I’ve done a gif hunt of him before with another 350+ gifs so combined there are 450+ gifs. None of these gifs are mine so if you see your own gifs here and want me to take them down, feel free to message me. Please like or reblog this if you run a rph blog or plan on using it for rp purposes.
Aw no. It’s always a hassle when the computer starts acting up :/ Hope the auto repair works! What model is your computer? :o
I’m sorry Ti *gently hugs and pets*
It appears to have worked so far thankfully. The computer booted up and I was able to get it to start working on (hopefully) properly updating. I don’t know the specific make and model, but it’s an ASUS desktop that’s about 3 years old. It’s still pretty good for three years old (having been pretty high tier hardware for the time) but the problem is we bought it when Windows 8 was a thing. And, well, 8 was dropped like a hot potato by Microsoft. So when I updated it before, everything broke since the OS isn’t supported at all anymore. But! I /may/ just be getting it up to 8.1 so it’ll hopefully work well now. Here’s hoping that nothing else bad happens *leans into hug, buries face in shoulder and snuggles into pets*
Your startled awake by pounds on your door, rolling off the bed you open the door to be pushed aside by Tony holding a cup of coffee. It had became a morning routine for the two of you. Tony and you had formed a close relationship early on in your Avenger career, quite an unlikely pair but things just clicked. With his nature he pushed you to bond more with the team, to your dislike at first but with Tony’s stubborn nature you warmed up soon becoming great friends. Well Pietro was a different story you haven’t faced yet.
“Morning Y/N here you go caramel cappuccino or whatever crap you always get.” Thanking him you take a greedy drink before sitting next to Tony on the small couch. Sipping the hot beverage Tony eyes you with a noticeable smirk.
“What?” you question with his continuous smirk.
“You and Sonic aye?” Winking he pull out one of his tabloids revealing a picture of Pietro holding you in his arms and of course the headline The Avengers new hit couple Quicksilver and Shadow?
“Crap, nonono dammit that’s not what it looks like.” you explain with a shaky voice
“I don’t know I see your googly eyes you give speedy every time you think no one’s watching.” Face redden at the truth Tony spoke.
“Well it would never work, I’m just the weird kid who is a complete joke. He could get any confident beautiful women he wanted.” Slumping your head onto his shoulder.
“Don’t sell yourself short Y/N, I’m sure all the fanboys are crying right now.” Tony assured.
“Yeah sure Tony, they’re all crying for the socially awkward girl who looks like a deer caught in headlights.”
“Hey that’s a turn on for some people, maybe even a certain cocky Avenger.” He said elbowing you in the arm.
“Okay that’s enough get out, go talk with your boyfriend down in the lab.” You tease shuffle Tony to the door and shoving him into the hall.
“I will, at least Bruce respects my opinion.” With that Tony stomps down the hall playfully pouting leaving you too get ready for morning training.
Immediately upon entering the training area Steve orders you to warm up with three laps around the track in the courtyard. After warm up Natasha spent the rest of the time teaching you combat techniques. Finally the training was done Nat pulled you aside.
“You’re ready both Steve and I believe that, your first mission will be next week Steve will give the details later. Oh and Bruce has something new for you. He wants you down in the lab when you’ve get a chance.” Grabbing a towel you rid yourself of as much sweat as possible.
“Got it, thanks.” Waving goodbye you set your priorities with a shower.
After a shower and a new change of clothes you stumble into the lab. “Hey Bruce…” interrupted shouts and a whizzing projectile flying towards your face. Reflexes kicking in you throw a purple field up causing the rocket to stop and explode in front of your shield.
“Y/N! Are you okay!” Tony screamed dropping his metal arm and rushing to your side. Grabbing your shoulder a pulling you into a hug “I didn’t see you there, I’m sorry.”
“Tony it’s fine.” You assured looking over at the shiny metal arm.
“I kept telling him to test it outside but it’s Tony we’re talking about.” Bruce laughed giving you a side hug. “Now that you’re here I’ve been working on a new synthetic cloth that will hopefully disappear along with you. Here see if it fits and works properly.”
“Yes sir.” you answered with a sarcastic salute as you made your way to the bathroom. Stripping off your clothes you slip into the soft fabric. Zipping it up you look at yourself. The suit way very similar to Natasha apart from the blue strips were replace with purple one cleverly representing your powers. Kudos Bruce it was a perfect fit hugging your body making your best features pop while hiding your more insecure features.
Stepping out you can’t help but blush at Bruce’s gaped mouth. “Y/N does it work?” He asked trying to focus on organizing something.
“Not sure, let find out.” Phasing out of sight you look down at your body which was now completely gone.
“That’s brilliant, good job Banner.” Tony cheered patting Bruce’s shoulder.
“Yeah Bruce this is great how did you do it?”
“Oh just science crap, super boring, no one want to hear.” Tony plainly said sending another missile across the room blowing a huge hole in the wall.
“Get the hell outside with that thing!” You ordered reappearing in to sight.
“Yes mom.” Tony groaned picking it up and heading up out the door.
“Pepper’s not going to be happy with new window you added.” You laughed as Tony stormed out.
"Hey I heard an explosion… aww” Pietro stopped staring the hole in the wall. “Stark and his toys, oh nice suit Y/N like the purple. Does it vanish with you?” Answering his question you hid from view.
“Yeah but I..I got t-to do someone. No I-I meant I’ve got to do something for someone.” you stutter knocking over a stack of papers on the floor on the way out. Stacking them quickly you rush out of the room down the hall.
With no other plans for the day you thought you might as well get the mission file from Steve. Searching the tower you find him lounging on a couch in one of the TV rooms watching a spongebob cartoon.
“Enjoying the classic’s are we Captain?” You commented causing Steve to jump.
“Jeez Y/N, you can’t just sneak up on people like that, I can’t even see you.” He snapped looking for any indication on where you were at.
“Sorry forgot I was hidden.” apologizing you appear on the chair next to him. “But I just need the information for the mission next week.”
“It should be in the file room.” Steve eye glued to the screen.
“I’ll let you get back to business though. Thanks Stevie.” Leaving him you collected the papers walking back to your room flipping through the many pages you absorb the information.
The mission was straight forward Steve, Wanda, Pietro great, and you were going to stake out a HYDRA base, information was leaked stating that HYDRA has some bioweapon in production. The team will be getting the dangerous machine before it can be used. You and Natasha will be storming in to collect the weapon while Pietro and Steve will be outside clearing a escape route Losing track of time while you study the mission listening to your favorite tunes. Hearing the growl of your stomach pulls you away from the papers and down to the kitchen. Glancing at the clock it read three in the morning wow, searching around the cupboards for something to eat.
Finding your favorite cereal, you look through the cabinets you can’t seemed to find a bowl. Getting frustrated you look one more time not wanting to have to resort to eating out of a cup. With a sigh you actually spot one, except this said bowl is on the top shelf out of your reach.
Stepping on your tiptoes you reach up desperate to grab the dish, hearing a chuckle from behind. Twirling around you view a groggy Pietro with his adorable silver hair strucken with bedhead.
“Need any help?” He asked motioning to your situation.
“Yeah if you don’t mind.” You plainly said stepping aside. Giving you the bowl you pour the cereal and milk taking a seat. After a couple bites Pietro joins you at the table eat some leftover pizza.
“So what are you doing up so late?” He questioned between bites.
“Umm just looking over details for the mission.” mumbling you take another bite avoiding his piercing blue eyes.
“Right the mission next week, that’s your first one right?”
“Yeah.” You breath pushing around the remaining bits of cereal.
“Well I’m honored to be there to see you kick some ass.” He dramatically places his hand on his heart causing you to give a small laugh.
“Wow I can make you laugh, thought I was losin my game.” He said giving a victorious fist pumped.
“Well…” shrugging you observe as Pietro leans forward letting the atmosphere become serious.
Tucking a stray hair away he stares “You have beautiful eyes. I never get to see them, you’re always hiding.”
“Ah th-thanks, crap.” good job klutz way to go. Jerking your hand you knock over the bowl of milk, shattering the glass on the floor. “I’m sorry.”
“No need to apologize,” Rushing out and back in a blink Pietro wipes up the liquid on the floor.
“Here let me help,” Picking up the shards of glass trying to clean up of course you end up slicing your hand.
“Dammit.” you yelp grabbing your palm that was now dripping blood.
“Here let me see.” Pietro called delicately holding the injured hand, checking the cut on your palm. “It’s not deep but it’s bleed pretty bad, hold on be back in a sec.” racing out he returns with some disinfectant and some medical wrap.
“Well I’ve been a mess lately haven’t I?” Trying to bring light to the mood you wince at the pain of the disinfectant. Seeing a small smirk on the speedster while he finished up the wrap.
“There we go, that should do it…” trailing off he rushes around cleaning your mess.
“I’m sorry Piet, I’m so clumsy and being tired doesn’t help I guess.” you explain giving a breathless laugh.
“No need to apologize,” He repeats with a smirk. “but you should probably get some rest.”
“Yeah probably. Ah I will see you later.”
“Sleep well drăguţ.” He whispered you barely being able hear before he sped off leaving you in the kitchen.
