how armor

anonymous asked:

what's your favourite damaged FE heroes art? i know you mentioned nino but i'm curious if there are others you like

oh good question!

  • Gordin, really good expression and pose
  • Masked Lucina, just because she has a very good pose and the way her mask gets destroyed looks really good. it’s not perfect but i think it’s less fanservicey than regular lucina’s.
  • Rebecca’s, because the way her bandana and sash fly off is pretty much what i want as far as accessory destruction and it’s not nasty
  • Ursula, although I admit hers is actually pretty bad but mostly I appreciate that it’s the only one of her portraits where her expression isn’t super creepy/wildly out of character
  • Eirika and Titania because of how their armor gets Cronched without being removed entirely
  • Bridal Charlotte because of the fucking face she makes
  • Beruka because like with Nino it has appropriate damage to clothes and accessories while also making her look even more badass
  • Arthur but mostly because his art is all extremely good. but i think the shadows especially are very good

Pidge: at Lance’s request we did a How to train your dragon week. We had these little toy puppet dragons and some fake weapons. It was pretty fun!

Shiro: Keith liked it a lot.

A.N. well I’m back. Unofficially. But yeah… starting to tear into the 100 FREAKING QUESTIONS. I love them all. Keep in mind that if you asked me something I’m answering them in order so I’m sorry about any late things.

THIS was an excuse to draw @parfaitperi ‘s HTTYD AU. which I love. It was a fun warm up as I get back into working.

Astraia Lavellan - Seven of Wands

A few months ago, I had the opportunity to commission @xfreischutz to make a card for my Inquisitor, Astraia Lavellan. The final result was more than worth the wait! Frei paid so much attention to details and had creative interpretations of my ideas, managing to take my massive amount of information about my character and distill it down into a wonderful image.

They were a pleasure to work with and I am so glad that I commissioned them. ♥

It was probably Elise who made Leo wear the flowers - Takumi is very much amused

one of the many many MANY things i loved about the wonder woman movie is how it had every little hint of trudging along that born sexy yesterday path and it just…… didn’t.

diana was this beautiful, powerful woman who knew little to nothing about the casual customs of humankind, and it would’ve been so easy for her to fall victim to the trope where the girl’s innocence is used as a tool for her to be deemed as “sexy” and “desirable” under the male gaze. like that scene where she was on the boat with steve. i loved that scene so much because diana wasn’t clueless about sex, she KNEW about it and how it’s both for reproduction and for pleasure. the situation wasn’t set for some really sexualized scene where diana wonders about what it is and steve has to show her, and that was just really refreshing to watch. i was so relieved when it didn’t happen, and my relief just says so much about films where a girl is some otherworldly creature or scientific creation, because more often that not, the innocence and quaint ignorance of these female characters get sexualized.

there was no scene where diana wondered about what sexual pleasure is like, there was no scene where diana reveled in the malicious attention male characters subjected her to, and there was no scene where diana had to strip naked without a care in the world. yes, there was that one scene where diana almost took her cloak off in the middle of a store, but the way the scene was handled lacked the way the male character would so often look a little too intently at her and her body, and only showed steve being embarrassed of how she thought her armor was considered something the common people in world war 1 england would see on the daily.

and really i guess what i’m just trying to say here is that having a female director handle a woman-lead film is just so strikingly DIFFERENT from how it would be had a male director took reign of it. there wasn’t a single strand of oversexualized fan service bullshit for the “male viewers”, and diana’s character wasn’t some one dimensional cookie cutter trope. it was just a superhero movie with an amazing superhero lead. nothing more, nothing less.

well, it’s not just a superhero movie, it’s the best superhero movie, but that’s a post for another time.
