So I know you love the Sims (obviously, we all do) but what's your favorite mobile game? I have a long commute to work and I can't ever find anything interested enough!
OKAY IM SUPER EXCITED THAT YOU ASKED THIS BECAUSE IVE BEEN DYING TO TELL SOMEONE ABOUT MY LATEST OBSESSION
All I literally do all day is play Army Antz. Like, seriously, it’s so addictive. BASICALLY OKAY You create a FREAKING ARMY OF ANTS AND THERE’S AN OPPONENT ARMY AND YOU GET TO FIGHT THE OTHER ARMY AND IF YOU CAN GET TO THEIR QUEEN AND KILL HER YOU WIN IT’S LIKE WORLD OF WARCRAFT BUT ITS ANTS DO YOU GET HOW CUTE THAT IS
I play all day and I get super high scores and basically the only reason Im using my brain during spring break is because of this game. SERIOUSLY PLAY THIS GAME AND MESSAGE ME WHAT YOU THINK AND YOUR HIGHEST SCORES BECAUSE IM COMPETITIVE AF AND I NEED SOMEONE TO BEAT ME AT THIS
Our very own shipping week for the Kyoko/Ren pairing! What’s a shipping week, you ask? It’s when fans get together for one week to make fanworks dedicated to a certain ship, with those fanworks being inspired by prompts corresponding to each day. I’ll provide the prompt list for all you excellent people to get creative with.
When is Kyoko/Ren Week?
How do I participate in Kyoko/Ren Week?
First, create your fanworks, inspired by the prompts. On each prompt’s assigned day, post your fanwork for that prompt, and tag it with “kyokoren week”. If you use other tags, make sure “kyokoren week” is in the first five! This is so I can find your posts and reblog them.
What kind of fanworks can I make for Kyoko/Ren Week?
Any kind of fanwork is welcome! Fan art, fanfiction, fanvideos, manga edits, gif sets, cosplay, interpretive dance, macaroni art… whatever works for you! Just stay within the guidelines listed below.
Whatever you share, it must be:
of your own making: Do not repost something that you did not create yourself.
focused on the Kyoko/Ren pairing: It’s fine to include other characters, but this is Kyoko/Ren Week–we’re here to ship! That said, Kuon is fine to use in place of Ren. You can also use any of the characters Kyoko and Ren have portrayed.
made specifically for Kyoko/Ren Week: The idea here is that we’re creating new material, with the challenge of using the prompts for inspiration. This isn’t the time to promote one of your old fanworks.
Also, if your fanwork contains nsfw content, please tag it accordingly!
Do I have to sign up? Is this a commitment?
Nope! Just jump in whenever you like.
What if I can’t finish a fanwork by the prompt’s assigned day?
That’s okay. Posting on those days is part of the challenge, but it’s no big deal if you’re late. This is all in good fun.
Do I have to make something for every prompt?
Nope! You can do as much or as little as you want. You can even make multiple fanworks for a single prompt, if you feel like it.
And that’s it! If you have any questions or need clarification on something here, please feel free to shoot me an ask or message!
First of all, I’m really sorry! I know I’m terribly late, but you know how much studying I had for the past few weeks, so I blame it all on my university! Today I finally sat down and decided that this is the time and it is done and I hope you enjoy it! Secondly, I have to admit I was really happy but also super nervous when I read that you’re my giftee, because damn. You can create anything you want for TS4, and you could easily do all those stuffs I’m giving you yourself… BUT now you don’t have to B)
First of all, we have the Get Together chairs recoloured in eversims’ Ever So Lovely palette. These ones came out accidentally, when I was done with the barstools and thought that it would be nice to have something else to match them, if you ever need something like this.
Then there are these paintings originally made by peacemaker-ic and I believe you have to download the original mesh here, so my recolours show up in your game. There are some pretty drawings, but also a portrait of Tatiana since we both love her so much, and also a drawing of Lexa I drew myself B)
And finally the Get Together barstools! I remember you telling me that you love things recoloured in eversims’ palettes, and you lack barstools in your game so maybe these ones aren’t the most creative and amazing but I tried! (You know how amazing I am at meshing)
Sooo here are your gifts and I hope you like them, they are just or you so I’m probably gonna send you the download links of facebook and yeah, happy new late year I guess :D ♥
I saw this tweet on twitter and was riddled with questions….
Do actors talk about stuff like that? Does John ever talk to Oscar about the tremendous amount of fan fiction, artwork and metas that were created around his and Oscar’s characters? Considering that 99.99999999% of it is slanted towards romance, I’m really curious as to how that conversation would’ve went. Was there teasing? Was it a serious discussion? Did they have these long, philosophical discussions of what Finn and Poe would be like in a galaxy, far, far away?
‘Cause God, if they did, I’d, literally, pay to be a fly in the room.
If someone’s rude to you and continues to be rude even after you talked to them about it, should you block them?
Like this person’s a big fan but you can’t get over how much they dislike something that you love and that you created
NEVER THOUGHT IT WOULD COME TO THIS 😭 SHIT IS HILARIOUS TO US, YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND IT’S NOT ABOUT THE MONEY- IT’S ABOUT GETTING TREATED LIKE ANIMALS AND NOT EVEN WEARING UGLY ASS “YEEZY” CLOTHES. VOLUNTEERS WERE USED TO STYLE ALL THE MODELS AND THEY WERE WEARING THRIFTED FUCKING CLOTHES- SINCE WHEN DO YOU HAVE A “FASHION” SHOW WITH OTHER DESIGNERS CLOTHES ON DISPLAY- EVERYONE THERE WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION THAT KANYE CREATED THOSE PIECES, BUT HELL NAW. MODELS ON THE TOP STAGE WERE IN YEEZY CLOTHES AND THE REST IN CARHARTT MADE TO LOOK LIKE HIS OWN. JUST LOOK AT THESE RACISTS IN HIS COMMENTS- LOOK AT HOW THE KARDASHIANS LOOKED DOWN ON EVERYONE LIKE PEASANTS. FUCK NO- I’M DONE FOR TODAY, CHRIS TURNING OFF HIS PHONE AND WE JUST GONNA LET THE TRUTH BE TOLD ON TMZ TONIGHT 🙅🏽
Please stop speaking for Keen2 if you’re not part of it.
I’m tired of being told why I like Jacob. Contrary to popular belief, I do not like Jacob because he’s hot. I do not enjoy this story arc because he has abs.
I enjoy his character for who he is and how he has evolved throughout the show. I enjoy his arc because the writers are creating a redemption story. I enjoy watching him because of how he is willing to do whatever it takes to save the woman he loves.
Do not speak for me. You don’t know a damn thing about why I like Jacob Phelps.
Great art :3 but how do I reach that level? I started drawing cartoons a bit more but I'm worried I can't doodle good (╥﹏╥)
Hey thank you! I’m stoked you like my stuff. :) I have got a few
notes saying things like this. Some of them have more self deprecation
than others but the message is the same for the most part.
Art is not a competition guys. You are not bad at this! I
don’t know why you are being so hard on yourselves. Your ideas are awesome. YOU are unique and individual. Therefore, so is your
work and that’s what makes it great. Down to your smallest silliest doodles.
Think about that
when you are making art. Whenever you are drawing/painting/making that
is you reveling in expression. This is you being uniquely YOU. Learn to
love that. The more you love to do something the more you do it. The
more you do it the more you improve. I have practiced a lot and I
have studied a lot. I do both because it is fun for me. I just really love painting. You are looking
at what hundreds(thousands?) of pictures of practice over the span of
years does to someone. I am not new to this and I am still very far from
where I want to be. Just the same as you. No matter what people
think this stuff is not a natural occurrence. Literally anyone can do
what I do. Anyone can get to this point and go way past it. It is just
time and willingness to put fourth the effort. Studying helps.
References help. The internet has got you covered on that. Talking down
about yourself to take away your own motivation does not help.
try your hardest when drawing and remember try new things. Don’t have a
comfort zone when it comes to ability. Stop worrying about how it’s
going to look and just try it. It’s not going to look how you want
in the beginning. Hell, it’s not going to look how you want 6 years down
the line either but other people won’t know that. Your doodles are
good. Trust me when I say your doodles are good. You are just scratching
the surface. If you keep it up every day you will be drawing in ways
you would never believe you could in no time.
Would you ever consider doing a video showing your art process when creating your adorable characters and games? It'd be super interesting to watch! ^_^
I’m far too slow at drawing to film it even if it was sped-up, I’m sorry ;u; I kinda get shy about the idea of people watching me draw, too. Kinda like that feeling when someone’s watching you over your shoulder? Lol!!
I could at least explain a little about how I draw though! :)
I use vector style, and draw in Adobe Flash. This means everything can be stretched and skewed with ease, and doesn’t lose quality if I were to suddenly shrink down on stretch anything wider. Also, each individual coloured part of the drawing can be dragged, dropped, etc. Because of this I find vector art very flexible, and I struggle drawing in any non-vector digital style now.
The only thing I miss from drawing in vector is that it doesn’t allow for soft shading brushes, which is why all my artworks are solid colours. At most, I can use gradient shapes (e.g. the blushes on my character’s faces are oval shapes with a radial gradient property added to them- so, they are not dabs of a soft brush, instead they’re a calculated shape).
As for drawing methods, I tend to prefer using bases I’ve pre-made for personal use. Bases are premade “bodies” you draw which you can edit and re-use for a paperdoll kind of effect. That’s why all my Moemotis keep a consistent style, and I love seeing them all toegther as a little Moemoti family! <3 Nothing’s really changed for me in that regard- as a child, I always went through hundreds of sheets of paper making paper dolls, and I grew up making dressup games in Flash and even made some money from it back in the day. ^^
Yes it means I have less practice drawing anatomy because I often use the same base I’ve already drawn, but I’m here to have fun- and bases are what has always brought out my most enthused creativity. :)
I wonder if Sandal is the last living old dwarf from before the veil was created?
Or related to the titans.
Or the vessel of, say, Sylaise.
I wonder if the dwarven bomb maker whose name I have forgotten is doing well. Also lyrium guy from Orzammar with his sandwich. That guy deserves a break.
What is the enigma of Kirkwall?
I want to go to the other dwarven cities.
Who was the Judas among the ancient elves?
Do dragons pre date (haha predators I’m so funny) both dwarves and elves? Where the hell did humans arrive from? How? Did humans have and then lose the technology that allowed them to access/reach thedas?
I'm just waiting for there to be a moment in one of the last eps of This season for there to be a scene that has the whole pack creating a dangerous plan and once they break to all do their separate things Lydia and stiles stop and kiss each other and when they stop they look each other in the eyes smile and then go and do their things
haha that’s probably how their relationship would go
Where am I, you ask? Playing Mass Effect. I managed to get through my motion sickness, if I play a little at a time and take breaks after long combat scenes. Now that I am confident I can actually play, I have started from the beginning so I could create a Shep I actually liked looking at.
Here is my glorious femShep and her perfect little cranky face.
NYFW Tip Alert: How to Create Sexy, Wet-Look Lashes
Mascara has been taking risks lately, from colorful shades to punk rock clumps, but now wet lashes may become the new trend. Why? As Maybelline global makeup artist Yadim explained backstage at Jason Wu, “it’s a simple, easy, beautiful look but there’s a little something to it.”
Jason Wu is known for his classic, sophisticated styles, but he wanted a modern edge for the makeup this season. “My initial thought was to do something with a crazy mascara or something, and I thought he would be a little afraid of it, but in the end when I brought the girls out he loved this — he’s obsessed with it,” said Yadim.

To get the look, he first used Maybelline Volum’Express Colossal Chaotic Effect Mascara ($5) to clump up the ends of the lashes. “We don’t go to the root of the lash — Just swish it back and forth using the tip of the mascara wand,” he says. “It kind of bunches the lashes together.” Next came the added wet effect. “We put lip gloss onto the end of the lashes so it almost ends up looking like vinyl-y lashes, like drippy shiny — to a fault.” Makeup artists used a long thin brush or makeup wand to apply Maybelline’s new Colorama gloss (it’s not out yet!) to the tips of lashes right before showtime.

If this sounds a little goopy off the runway, fear not. “If you don’t want any wetness on your lashes at all but want to keep it looking semi-wet, there are some Maybelline mascaras that are purposely more shiny than others,” says Yadim, who suggests Great Lash ($4) Volum’Express Falsies Push Up Drama ($7) and Lash Sensational Lucious Mascara ($7) all in Blackest Black for a wet look. And the more clumps the better — “when you get out of the shower and look in the mirror they’re a little clumped together.” You can also try coating lashes with a lip balm, Vaseline, or a natural clear gloss to get the look at home.
I really wish people would get off their high horses when giving tips about worbla-ing.
Whether you like to or not, priming with modge podge, wood glue, flexbond, plasti dip, fiberglass, whatever, is NOT absolutely necessary. It’s not. Don’t tell ANYONE “ if you’re not going to do it right/put the work into it, don’t do it at all.”
I was pressed for time, out of work and out of money when building my Erza armor and most of it is simply painted with multiple coats of acrylic on bare, brown worbla. And you know what? It looks good. And I’m happy with it. And proud of it. And NO ONE asked me what/if I primed it other than another worbla user and frankly, if you’re asking, then you don’t know. So why does it matter how anyone creates? The best part about creating is that there aren’t rules to follow!
( Well…except for in regards to power tools and chemicals etc. Please follow those rules. XD )
“It was interesting to be on a shoot and to not have the freedom to just create like I normally do with my body. Trying to re-create what Degas did was really difficult. It was amazing just to notice all of the small details but also how he still allows you to feel like there’s movement. That’s what I think is so beautiful and difficult about dance too. You’re trying to strive for this perfection, but you still want people to get that illusion that your line never ends and that you never stop moving.”
6 out of 46 frames are done… the smoll Frisk learned how to drop on the ground and get up :D And she can walk already! It makes me so happy to see that things are working out pretty decent so far ; 7 ; Maybe a bit wonky from time to time but it is the first time I try to do these…
It takes so frecking long to create shimejis Q_Q I respect the people who are doing these in a short amount of time.
This episode is exactly why I want to write character meta for this series, and exactly why I refuse to let myself.
Personally, I’ve found The 100 to be one of the most fun things I watch since I started watching it. But in order to deliver the suitable amount of traumatic tension the series is constantly shooting for, its second season ran on a plot that required complete ignorance of how bone marrow works to function.
I trust this show not at all to create long-lasting, intelligent plot dilemmas.
Meanwhile, as it’s creating this mess, it provided a better stepping stone to Clarke forgiving Lexa than I would have given it credit for. Clarke asking how Lexa can get past her ambassadors’ betrayal was one of the smoothest subtextual segues I’ve seen lately.
Really, everything to do with Clarke and Lexa was gold.
Even if a lot of that might just be that Lexa is a morbid dork.
Lexa is a fucking morbid dork.
And every second she doesn’t kill Roan is fuel for my crack sibling theory shut up.
Shows like this are really frustrating. Since it focuses on running on pathos, you care. Since it’s running on that at the expense of nearly everything else when the mood suits it, turning your brain off is the best way to enjoy it. And that’s not my preference when it comes to being invested in something.
What I’m saying is that I really miss Person of Interest.
