baaask the CAT EARS interview thing!! djfkdjfksfdkl. how did your kitty brain react to hearing that??
HI! Soo okay just after this interview back in June 19, 2015. It was when I really lost it into kitty trash! I also remember there came a wave where we photoshopped cat ears on Robin and posted on here and twitter. Selene made an AMAZING one lol and Robin saw it and replied her with applause emojis oml. And then it just happened, my trash brain struck this headcanon out all of a sudden to my ”poor” okimi, this is how it looked, lmao. I’m under black and okimi is under green:
Oh believe me I waited…and dear wife produced good stuff :)) So yeah this is the earliest prints I have actually so I don’t remember if I had gone into the kitty thoughts at all before the actual interview. But well when he said it I just oh my goood that’s the cutest things xD And then that he approved getting photoshopped cat ears and tails on himself was so hilarious mwaha. And then it has just continued….in my kitty trash tag of trash. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
If you’re like me, and like to bring your earthy witchcraft with you this is the DIY for you.
cost breakdown and materials:
✨ Wood box - $2.99 from craft store (but most stores have coupons)
✨ Stain - $4.99 (a small bottle will last you forever)
✨ Moss - $5 from a craft store (I’m sure you can fine it somewhere cheaper)
(side note: I don’t recommend getting it from the ground. It can lead to mold/bugs/allergy issues)
✨ Hot glue
✨ Acrylic Paint and brushes
Prep your box by sanding down any rough edges, removing any stickers, as well as making sure it’s dry and clean.
Stain your box. You can use a rag or brush to apply stain. Read the directions on your stain bottle, and wipe off extra stain. I love wood stain.
The latch has an eagle on it :)
After your stain is dry prep for the sky. You can prep with gesso or just white acrylic paint. This will make your colors pop more. I just dove in with painting, but if you want really crisp border lines use masking tape.
While waiting for the white to dry I hot glued in some moss. It takes the glue really well, but retains its fluffiness.
Add your night sky. To avoid having to paint tons of layers because your paint is transparent, ad a little white in. For the sky I mixed white, black, and blue, and left it a little unblended for a foggy feel.
Ad stars. I chose Cassiopeia, Polaris, and the Big Dipper. Use a tooth pic to get small dots.
Add in your items. I didn’t have a tea candle so I made a temporary candle from a shell. I also added some jars for herbs and a couple of crystals.
Sketchdump 3 of Samurai Dad. This one is dubbed the “Dress Up” dump. Ever since the 6th episode with Ashi’s new hairdo and outfit, I was inspired to make nature outfits for all the girls, as well as changing their hair. You will bet that Jack would immediately scrub the “Aku” goo off of the girls. BTW, he’s not mad at them, he’s mad that toddlers were dropped into bubbling goo. Then I got the urge to draw the girls with all their new hairdos and outfits when they’re older. Unfortunately I don’t know whose name is who. Please forgive me, I didn’t have time to assign the listed names, because they never did so.
Neon-Cat-Headphones & grungy green clothes: The main tech and gear head. Tinkerer, inventor. Not a super genius, but still the main tech-head. Blue Coat with blue eyeshadow: She takes care of all the makeup and beauty needs. Also the experimental chemist who makes dangerous makeup bombs. Her handbag is filled with things from knockout gas & acid, to humble eyeliner & blush. Chun Li with roller shoes: The tech-head sister made those shoes especially for her. Those shoes are heavier than they look. She likes her snacks & food. Pink Sakura Tessen/ first one Jack killed: She loves her books and soaking up knowledge like a sponge. She’s a living encyclopedia. The Falconer: Nuff said. She loves nature and all of its creatures. Especially birds. Can do almost any bird call. The rebel graffiti ninja: The artistic graffiti rebel with a cause. The stunts she pulls is baffling, and she’ll get help from her sisters. The people who painted that Soviet star as Patrick Star? She’ll do that s#!t and more. Ashi, the ladybug warrior: We all know Ashi. But I’d say she’s really dedicated to martial arts and the bushido code studiously. Still loves ladybugs.
The final pic took way long. They’re preparing and gearing up for the final confrontation. And Jack now has his sword back (FINALLY!)
I don’t know if I’ll do another Samurai Jack-based stream next week. It’s pretty much likely that I might just do that. Probably will stop after the hype dies down and the end is near.
To all the viewers who stopped by, thank you so much for putting up with my dry and boring self haha.
I wanted a single symbol for my aroace identity - not because I have any problem with the SAM, I love it and it’s beautiful, but because having a symbol in general is empowering. So I thought about it and I looked for it, and I realized it was kind of obvious.
So here we have it, an arrow set into a circle. And it really is perfect - the arrow is already a symbol of aromanticism and the black ring is used as a symbol for asexuality. Plus, I loved the use of the longstanding pun - it’s an arrow going through the bullseye, it’s an Arrow Ace… to represent aroaces.
So we have the purple and green at the top, a nice easy symbol made from the non-overlapping colors of each flag. The middle row are the grays - ace-grayaro, grayaroace, and aro-grayace. And the third row is the silhouette and the full flag colors - the feathers at the end of the shaft are the white, gray, black both flags include.
I also included the flags - the first is the green and purple over the shared stripes - which now compromises the flag background. The last row are the gray identities over the shared stripes.
I’ll be adding additional posts of the aroace symbol on different identity flags for anyone who has overlapping identities. Taking requests if anyone has them! (I’ll update this with links to the other posts)
