I’m bitter AND sticky so let’s get gooey on topic!
People just? forgot that ton of season 3 episode’s visuals are actually amazing? I mean it could be just me but this season clearly trowed a ton of budget into some scenes an episodes!
Super Watermelon Island got an amazing fluid fight scene between two giant women and it was as energetic as it sounds
Gem drill, even tho it was pretty chilly on animation, had ton of detail on Steven’s faces, I find it like such a sweet detail having in mind the episode was focusing a ton on Steven and his connection with the cluster
(this is my personal favorite)
Hit the diamond had a TON of characters on-screen at the same time, having in mind 5 of them where new characters and they had to design new clothing for 5 of them
Even though my favorite part of this episode is the bond between Amethyst and Peridot, I think Too Short To Ride was pretty consistent, I am in love every time they put little lines under the eyes of the characters because it usually helps to remark the emotion they are feeling, is personal.
Stevonnie’s back for Beach City Drift and the thing I like the most about this episode is the backgrounds and the color choices, they are AMAZING and pretty relaxing to watch on their own.
Monster reunion was pretty harsh to see for me because painful scenes (aka scenes where the character is clearly in pain) make me feel incredibly bad, but I again shot out how they draw emotions and the subtle lines that make it all even better.
More than for animation itself, I praise a lot Alone At Sea because of writing and atmosphere, and the last one really works, I felt incredibly… tense, when Jasper showed up, how she acted and the way she expressed herself, and how the colors got dark and the rain around it… just gosh
Even tho it was a pretty okay-o episode in general, I really liked Gem Hunt’s backgrounds, the whites and cold tones made a good mix with Jasper’s colors and really helped her to pop out!
I’ve talked a lot about Bismuth, so at this point everything would feel redundant, so I’ll just say that the first and last scenes have pretty good colors, one being calm pastel tones and the other reddish dark tones #BRINGHERBACK2K17
And finally, Bubbled, which has some on the most beautiful space backgrounds i’ve seen in an animation product, is the feeling of emptiness that makes the most of the episode personally, how is literally just Steven and Eyeball and Eyeball pretty much tries to kill him, in other situations you can think about something going on, but is the fact that they are in space what makes it feel… well… empty, giving more focus to the characters that contrast the most in a sea of dark cold tones and blacks!
One of my favourite destiel moments has gotta be the one in s9 when Cas is all "and sex" with Dean spitting out his drink "you had sex with April?" while Sam didn't seem bothered at all or frankly as interested. He's like "oh good for you", but Dean... he's so bothered by it and I love it
DEAN IS SO BOTHERED BY HIS HAVING SEX WITH APRIL BUT ALSO EXCITED BY THE PROSPECT OF SEXUAL CAS AND I AM LIVING.
We do not talk enough about how Dean added a second bedside table to his bedroom during the time that Cas was human, then it disappeared again when he re-graced up and how the set designers tweeted that this was intentional.
She’s Just Not That Into You » Part I (A Harry Styles Miniseries)
First and foremost, I need to dedicate this miniseries to @stylesunchained. If it weren’t for B, this idea would’ve never come to fruition. It’s been so lovely to torture you with snippets of this story, and now it’s finally here! And yes, the whole damn thing is dedicated to you, my beautiful friend.
Secondly, I need to take the time to thank @cuddlemusclestyles for her knowledge of England and always answering my questions about it. I would be lost without you, for you are my own personal Google.
And, of course, thank you all for the interest you’ve expressed for this miniseries. It’s always that much more enjoyable to write when you know you’ve got people rooting for you. I hope I don’t disappoint you.
so playing andromeda and drawing kaleans got me thinkin’ on another minor complaint i have about ME and it’s this:
dang they can’t figure out how to make digitigrade legs work on a humanoid character and they end up adding extra joints to the legs to try to make it make sense
like i watched the animation cycle of that angara working out at the resistance camp and when he started doing crunches and his legs made an M shape i was just like smdh
i mean i think they handle it better with the angara since they have those weird little hand-feet (angara are so cute i cannot stand it) but the worst offender is probably the salarians
anyway i love the concept of humanoids with digitigrade legs so here’s some notes about it. it’s not beautifully formatted or anything but maybe it’s helpful!
basically the main thing to get out of your mind is that you’re not going for “backwards knees.” i am sure backwards knees could work and would be an interesting design, but it’s gonna change how this character moves and sits, it’s gonna affect the character’s center-of-gravity, it’s gonna be a much bigger overhaul of the anatomy than creating a digitigrade leg requires.
when you’re thinking of a digitigrade leg as having backwards knees, it’s probably because the joint you’re thinking of as the knee is actually the ankle
both plantigrade and digitigrade legs will have four major points of articulation: the hip the knee the ankle the toes
and a digitigrade leg isn’t a plantigrade leg backwards, but on its tiptoes:
that’s basically all you gotta do! then you exaggerate the effects by changing the proportions of the leg, starting with making the knee-ankle length shorter, and the ankle-toe length longer.
the benefit of drawing digitigrade characters like this is that they can sit in chairs without looking ridiculous!
and finally, if your character doesn’t have paws or hooves or talons, they probably want to wear shoes! hell, even if they do they still might wear shoes. the ground is nasty! think this through and let it be another cool design opportunity. a good place to start if you’re stuck is looking at wedge heels, then drawing them without the heel!
aaaand here’s some aliens
now get outta here and draw some weird-ass legs aight
Dupain-Cheng loved with a fierce sort of affection that gently destroyed him.
wasn’t grand gestures or loud declarations or flashy devotion.
was thoughtful moments and quiet attention and unwavering loyalty.
took Adrien an embarrassingly long time to recognize it for what it was.
When everything he knew was detachment and afterthought his compass for
affection was nearly non-existent. He knew Nathalie’s cold comfort and
his father’s broken promises and Chloe’s noisy fawning. He knew conditions and
strings and if-thens.
didn’t understand second chances.
Everyone in his life was striving.
put their careers, their hopes, their reputation on his shoulders and poked and
prodded and pulled until he smiled just right and spoke just so and moved just
he didn’t know any different.
loved in the little ways.
loved in passing moments and quiet gestures and thoughtfully in a way that was
almost careless. In a way that was so very Marinette.
had always been careful, but in the five weeks since he found out the Truth he
felt like his shoes were made of glass and every next step could be the one to
problem when every shy smile, confused blush, and rapid fluttering of blue,
blue eyes made him feel like dancing, glass be damned.
removing the mask he had been gifted with the knowledge that his best friend
was never really as far away as she seemed. Ladybug was untouchable.
Marinette was so very, very there.
somehow made everything more vivid, more terrifying,
had been painfully awkward of course. Because of course it was when she
was so adamant about keeping their identities a secret.
for him, Marinette never was good at telling the restrooms apart.
March 10th is Wheatley’s designated hatchday!
I wanted to make a special post for my little wheat noodle. He’s turning 3 this year. I got him at only 4 months old and it feels like yesterday, but by June I will have officially had him for three years. Time flies.
Happy hatchday, Wheatley! Love you and hope to have you for many years to come!
Welp I doodled TH!PJ sooner than I thought! But I wouldn’t be able to post it until after the hiatus so I thought about submitting it to you! ^^ I’m excited to see what TH!PJ will do within this AU! (And yeee that’s original PJ in the corner complaining… but I love the design you did! ^^)
This picture here is my third keychain design for my future series. It depicts the lovely Mikaela Hyakuya in his second uniform, sword drawn and fueled by his blood, His eyes are no longer the vibrant blue, for he already had a taste of human blood in this version, causing them to take on a rich, glowing red.
For everyone who favours his half breed form, I am planning on creating multiple versions for some of the characters. Drawing blue-eyed Mika is a must after all.
BTS reaction to coming home to their GF sleeping from a tiring flight (they didn’t know she was coming)
Anonymous said :
Can you please do bts react to coming home from their practice and seeing their s/o sleeping from a tired flight across the sea to see their boyfriend?? (Idk if this makes sense)
Hi cutie~thanks for requesting ! .. here’s your requested reaction and I hope you like it >< .
He had never seen you face to face before since you are his web girlfriend . you once told him that you had the habit of talking in your sleep ,so when he entered the house he heard mumbles of a sleeping person ..so fast your words popped up in his head so he smiled with no control ,he expected that he was another sleepy member ,so he walked slowly toward it to wake him up and make him sleep on his bed ..and when he saw you ,he waited no second to open his eyes widely and try to stop his laugh full of joy ,his happiness reach its limit but ..he would be so patient so you would rest and be comfortable .
You told him that you had to attend the college in UK since it’s your dream ,and he didn’t stop you ! ..your dreams are his dreams .So when he saw you sleeping on the couch he couldn’t resist but smiled till his ears as he knew you were crazy but cute enough to take a break and come to see him when he told you he had bad times and the manager is being firm with him ..you were so helpful to him ,and that moment he was super appreciative! .taking a flight for 16 hours and freezing your classes just to be by his side would make him fall in love deeper than he had ever been .
Rap Monster :
He had seen you on FaceTime only ,so meeting you was his biggest dream ,and you made it come true on his birthday ! ..he came home and saw a simple design with balloons and a cake written on it “for my lovely joonie” ..he took like two minutes to realize what was happening ,and when he saw you ,he needed another minute to accept the reality that you are really in front of him ..and you just woke up by his mumbles while he was saying “what the hell? ..why ? ..she’s here ?…how ?…wow !…is she real ?..do I have a fever ? ..am I ok ? ..did Jin put drugs in that soup or what ?” although you hugged him ,but I think he would be shocked till the next day .
This fluff boy won’t wait any second to be over excited and fangirl over the fact that you are there for him ,he just sat near you and started kissing your face and every inch of it ..so you would wake up by his moves and just end up cuddling as he can’t let you go after it ! his hug would be tight and the smile won’t leave his face ..while telling you everything happened when you were away .
As soon as he saw you he held back his breath and turned the happiest mochi !..he walked around the sofa ,his eyes spotted at everything that made him feel you were real ..he spent like five minutes just staring at you and your luggage ,and another ten minutes just walking around the house to empty his excitement so he won’t wake you up ..!
This little kid won’t be that gentle ,the second he saw you he started screaming uncontrollably “Y/N !!!! …OHHH MY GOD!!!” ..which made you wake up suddenly as you thought something just happened ,but no ..it was your cute boyfriend jumping on you then pulling in a hug that you felt it took more than three minutes ,he won’t believe the fact and you would feel his happiness just by looking at his red face and teary eyes .
This savage boy would stare at you in an annoying way ,then he would bite his lip and look away “I was the one who supposed to travel for our anniversary, not her!” ..your anniversary was in the next week and he was planning to give you a surprise and go to see you in your hometown ,but you were faster . You woke up at his words ,smiled and stood on you feet as you felt your head still spinning from that flight ..you mumbled “why so annoyed kookie ? ..did you feel the failure or not ?” You said ,teasing him ..so he looked at you with a serious face “you know it’s my turn this year ..you came the last year too !!” ..your smile faded away and just looked at the ground “ohh ..did I annoy you ?” ..he kept silence for ten seconds ,before smiling and pulling you into a warm hug “you idiot ,yes you are annoying but I missed you so much !”

some quick random thoughts about the last chapter:
naked guan shan is a sight to behold, and it’s not like we didn’t know since old xian loves to draw him in various states of undress (which is still hilarious to me), but d a m n, he is hella build
he also looks gorgeous in those white pants
actually he looks gorgeous full stop, like srsly sometimes i can’t believe how beautiful guan shan is, his character design is so good
guan shan looking up he tian’s horoscope is THE MOST. ADORABLE. THING. EVER. and it clearly shows that guan shan has been thinking about he tian and wants to learn more about him, wants to understand him, and im just!!!! so excited because guan shan’s feeling have been slowly shifting and turning into something more, and seeing his journey into falling in love with he tian is so breathtakingly beautiful HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO DEAL
“your partner is very tender, soft, sweet, and understanding, will look after you well” [muffled screaming] OKAY LISTEN he tian’s horoscope is making me so emo because he actually is all those things, we got to see it in the way he constantly cares about guan shan, and we didn’t really need a confirmation but im still very grateful that old xian spelled it out like this
WHAT IS HE TIAN’S ZODIAC SIGN THO @old xian you can’t have guan shan look it up and not tell us I NEED TO KNOW
….i honestly don’t want to say that guan shan was about to jerk off thinking about he tian but it sure looked like it and my brain short circuited for a while there………….
..was…………was he tian waiting on guan shan’s balcony while guan shan showered and then hiding there until he could make the perfect entrance GOD DAMMIT HE TIAN
okay but guan shan’s mom making he tian wait for guan shan in his room and he tian looking around it to learn more about guan shan and then stepping out on the balcony and turning around when he hears guan shan walking in but stopping in his track because guan shan is SHIRTLESS and that wasn’t in the plan and HE NEEDS A MINUTE idk about y'all but im considering this canon
GUAN SHAN'S RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS MOM IS BEAUTIFUL AND IM CRYING I LOVE THEM SO MUCH
i fucking knew he tian was smart as hell, and the fact that he just showed up at guan shan’s house to help him study is making me feel stuff because !!!!!!!!!! he cares!!!! about guan shan!!!! so much!!!! he wants guan shan to stay in school and succeed and be the best version of himself because, unlike she li, he knows guan shan has potential and deserves so much more than being used as a scapegoat and he tian just loves him so much IM SHOOK
(i honestly want to make an analysis about he tian vs she li so badly, i wish my brain could just work sigh)
those last three panels are just so???? cute???? i don’t know, he tian looks adorable in them and their banter feels so comfortable and light-hearted, and i just really love it (im lowkey laughing at guan shan’s punches feeling like a massage to he tian THESE DORKS)
(guan shan not looking at he tian in that third to last panel is interesting tho, i wonder if it actually means something or if im reading too much into things as usual)
i really REALLY need to see guan shan and he tian studying together and then guan shan’s mom inviting he tian to stay for dinner and the three of them just interacting with each other, it would be SO GOOD and have so much potential to learn more about he tian and guan shan @old xian IM BEGGING YOU (……am i being too greedy??)
guan shan’s mom is gonna become the number 1 tianshan shipper just wait for it
The last place Clarke expected to run into anyone she knows is the literal middle of the ocean, but the cruise ship has barely left port before she spots a familiar head of tousled curls ahead of her in the crowd.
She loses sight of him before she can get a good look, so she chalks it up to her imagination. It’s entirely possible that Bellamy is on the same cruise she is– they did, after all, both just graduate, and therefore have the same budget and scheduling constraints– but she tells herself it probably isn’t him. And that even if it is him, it’s not like they’re going to run into each other.
So of course the next day she’s on one of the decks by the pool when a shadow falls over her and his voice says, “Is this chair taken?”
Clarke pushes her sunglasses up on top of her head and wrinkles her nose at him.
“I don’t know, I my tiara really ought to have a chair of its own.”
Bellamy smirks and sits on the edge of the chair, not moving her stuff– not yet– but settling in to bicker with her. As is their custom.
She and Bellamy were RAs in the same dorm two years ago, and they had differing ideas at first about how hands-on they needed to be with their freshmen. Despite the way they picked at each other, by the end of the year they’d become reluctant allies, his calling her ‘Princess’ taking on less of a sneer and more of a teasing edge, her comebacks laced with a smile. They had each other’s backs.
But she didn’t re-up her RA contract for her senior year, and he did, and they’re not the type of friends to outright admit they miss each other, so she hasn’t seen nearly as much of him in the past couple of semesters as she would like.
“You here with Wells?”
“And Raven,” she nods. “I was saving those seats for them, but I’m pretty sure they ditched me to have tiny cabin sex.”
“O and Lincoln ditched me pretty fast too. I think they’ve all forfeited their right to a saved seat,” he grins, passing her bag back to her. The way he lounges back in the chair, skin already browning, wind ruffling his hair, he looks like something straight out of an ad. Or Clarke’s fantasies. Either one, really.
Just because she used to think he was a Class-A dick (which he is, but not in the way she thought. In the fun way.) doesn’t mean she’s never noticed how great his hands are, or how he’s got perfect hair for pulling, or how there’s probably more than one way to wipe a smirk off his face.
“Sure, make yourself at home,” she grumbles. He grins at her and pulls his shirt off, which is– honestly just so unfair.
Honestly I was so scared that my favorite NDRV3 character wouldnt get any love purely for his design (excuse me, his design is amazing, unique and adorable though) but I am so glad to see people that love him as much as I do. I want to protect this boy
I love to imagine how was his life before it turned into hell…..Really cute, cheerful and positive boy
Speaking of things I’d like someone else to write, what about Stuckony House Renovation?
Steve and Bucky are together and finally have enough money to buy themselves a fixer-upper and hire a contractor. Enter Tony Stark, one of the most desired designers/contractors on the east coast. You wouldn’t think Steve and Bucky would be able to hire him but Steve’s comic book has gotten really popular so he can pay Tony’s fee and, mostly, Tony Stark takes jobs based on merit. If he doesn’t think a project will be interesting, he turns it down (but does, of course, suggest another designer/contractor that he likes). And he thinks the brownstone that Steve and Bucky have decided on has merit.
What Tony didn’t expect was this lovely couple, who obviously loved each other (he might have been a little jealous about it actually) can’t seem to agree on literally anything. Bucky likes sleek and modern and Steve likes cozy and classical. Tony could probably design them a very beautiful place except neither of them want to compromise. He doesn’t–what is he supposed to do?! Every modern design he shows them Steve hates and every classical design makes Bucky grimace.
“What am I supposed to do?” he moans to Pepper, the beautiful brains behind the bookkeeping, because he wanted to bang them when he met them but now he just kind of wants to wring their necks. Maybe have hate sex. But he mostly wants to kill them. He hasn’t felt this shitty about his designs since he was just starting out.
(Steve and Bucky, the idiots, are only bickering because it means they get to see Tony more. They wouldn’t be together if they didn’t know how to compromise. But Tony Stark is cute and sassy and they’re kinda in love with him. They just don’t know how to go about telling him that. Idiots.)
