i am not sure about the design though

Wow, already 5 years, half a decade. I don’t know what to say. My gif’ing activity went down hill in 2015 for sure though. In 2015, I was so caught up and interested in other things, that I forgot about my dream, to pursue in graphic designing. Man I wish I hadn’t stopped, but I am so happy that there are still people, my mutuals, my friends, my followers here. So lastly, I say, thank you so much for 5 years! Thank you for not forgetting about me! and i am sorry about this really shitty follow forever, i haven’t gotten into my grove yet x)

MY TESTIMONY

I’ve been seeing so many Christians sharing their testimonies on here and despite the often liberal, anti-Christian environment on this website, they’ve received positive feedback and it’s been encouraging to so many people.  

I think people want authenticity from Christians, who aren’t afraid to share their struggles, regardless of how it may be received.  That said, I won’t be intimidated any longer. I think God is calling me to share this with you, and I hope my story encourages you. 

I was born a premature twin baby at 23 weeks, weighing 1 pound and six ounces. My twin brother, Jesse, unfortunately didn’t survive, and for the first few months of my life, no one was sure that I would, either. But God saved me.  He allowed me to live for a reason, and has a plan for me. Despite having mild cerebral palsy and a non-verbal learning disorder, I am still capable of accomplishing things, as I am a college graduate and a 1st degree black belt in Tae Kwon-do.  

I was saved at an early age. Born in a Christian home, I accepted Christ in my life around age four.  We always went to church growing up, and I still go to this day. I’ve sought to honor Christ all my life, but it hasn’t been easy. 

As I entered high school, I started developing feelings towards the same-sex. I wasn’t sure what to make of it at first, but I soon began to realize that I was attracted towards other guys (as well as girls, but more-so guys).  Here’s the thing though. These feelings? They’re NOT who I am.  I am a Child of God.  I am a new creation. I am dead to sin, and alive in Christ.  Yes, I believe homosexuality to be sin because it’s against God’s design for our lives. I didn’t make it up and don’t get to argue about it.  Truthfully, I have no real desire for a relationship sexual-or-otherwise with anyone of the same sex. I hope to one day being with the woman God has planned for me. For me, the attraction is more that I see a man who I think looks more attractive than me, more muscular, better hair etc, and I start to lust after him, it’s not that I’m seeking a relationship. 

Now, I imagine some of you reading this will call me homophobic or self-hating. It may seem that way to you, but that’s not the case. I’m self-denying, and that’s not the same as self-hating. In order to follow Christ, Christians are called to “deny themselves, take up their crosses and follow Christ” (Matthew 6:24). If you aren’t willing to do that, you’re not a believer. If you’re a homosexual who has chosen to embrace their feelings and let them define you, I don’t hate you. I love you because God loved you, so much that He gave His Son to die for you.  

Homosexuality is a choice because while you can’t control the feelings, you can most certainly control how you choose to respond to them. Embracing them as part of you is not your only choice. You may think I’m miserable because I’m denying myself of these feelings, but I’m not because of the hope that I have in Christ. I’ve heard such amazing stories of people who were living openly gay and God got hold of them and completely transformed their lives. There is freedom.

I want to next address my admiration of Dylan and Cole Sprouse. Yes, at one point, I did lust and fantasize over them, but no longer. God has transformed how I see them. I think it was Dylan’s nudes that brought me to tumblr, and I admit I lusted after that, but now I don’t want any part of it anymore. What I intended for evil, God used for good. Praise Him!

I can’t say with 100% certainty that once in a while I won’t think they look attractive in a photo, but I don’t let it go to a place of lust. I don’t try to gratify myself by dehumanizing them because I care about them too much as people. I recognize and care about their humanity, and most importantly, I care about their souls. God has brought so many wonderful people into my life through the Sprouse Twin fanbase, and I’m so incredibly grateful how I’ve gotten to minister to them, and I’m praying that Dylan and Cole will come to know Christ as well. For them in particular, I think I identify with them because I admire how close they are with each other, and I kind of wish I had that. I see in them perhaps what I could’ve had with my twin brother Jesse, had he survived, but it wasn’t God’s will and I will see him in Heaven.

I’m not perfect, I still mess up, I still struggle with looking at pornographic images and give in to worry, but I’m learning to “take every thought captive to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:5. Call me a hypocrite if you wish, but I’m grateful for how God is working in my life, and I am confident He will heal me of everything I struggle with the more I seek Him.  

I hope this encourages you.  But it’s not about me, it’s about Him and His glory. Thank You, Jesus.  

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes.” Romans 1:16

@spectrology: I’m not sure right now…! I did like the way it looked, but I’m worried about the longevity of acrylic pins since you have to fasten the plastic and the pinback together! I’m actually considering re-designing it as an enamel pin, though (if I can get it to work)! thank you for your interest regardless!

anon: this is something I dealt with in school, too! I don’t think it’s that I stalled - I think I just wasn’t sure how to apply what I’d learned to my own art. as long as you’re drawing and trying new things, I promise you’re improving, even if you can’t see it yet. just keep studying and looking for ways to incorporate new techniques and knowledge!

Commission: Tri-feathered Bell

@ravenbara approached me awhile ago about a commission for a logo design for his Etsy shop. I have been chipping away at the design that was requested bit by bit and finally was able to come to this linework which was approved today!

I am happy to share with you the agreed upon design, though I’m still working on the colours.

I am open for commissions so please be sure to check out my commissions page!

This doodle has been sitting in my WIP folder for about a month and I’m too tired to finish off his hand properly so this will have to do. I think the original concept was they were reconciling after a squabble they had during a mission? I am not too sure anymore. lol

While I like the composition and posing of the subjects for this drawing I think from now on I’m going to be depicting them at about the same height with Boruto only a hair taller (though in his eyes it’s more like a foot).

The mc//elro/ys: *receive criticism of their podcast, handle it gracefully*

The majority of people making the criticisms: ok cool sure we understand this is a complicated situation. some of us are still uncomfortable though

Hell demons on tumblr dot com: how dare you harass these perfect boys SJ culture is ruining media and also MY LIFE PERSONALLY!!!!!!!!!!! don’t tell me not to like antisemitic character designs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

anonymous asked:

I arrived pretty late to the young justice fandom, (about last fall..?) what are some interesting/crazy events that happened while it was on and the fandom was still active?

gosh you missed out on one hell of a ride friend

(so I originally started typing, but then I suddenly had a big wall of text so for SIMPLICITY’S SAKE I’ll be redoing this with (hopefully) small bullet points for all the things that are slowly coming back to me. Feel free to come back and ask more about certain bullets, because omg I could go into depth about all of them and I doubt you want a giant wall of text that I am very capable of producing…and look I’ve already done so, dammit)

Season 1

  • THE MOLE THEORIES: When Sportsmaster ‘let slip’ that there was a mole, as you can imagine TONS of theories and speculation broke out. I remember there being some pretty amusing ones.
  • Combats/YJ Twitter RP/Valentines Day: In 2011, combats’ Robin and Kid Flash roleplayers did a storyline on Valentine’s day that went viral, fandomwise. You can check it out here. There was so much fanart. So much.
  • Aside from the Birdflash, just the combats group in general was fantastic. The extras were my faves, they had a Sphere, Wolf, M’gann’s bioship…even Roy’s hat that he threw down on the floor in the first episode. I am still laughing that that was a thing that happened.

Season 2 (I remember a whole lot more from this season, cause I was more active)

  • News of the timeskip + season 2: No one knew what to make of it, but the response wasn’t really positive. We had spent an entire 26 episodes growing attached to this group of characters and suddenly we were gonna be shot 6 years into the future. (we eventually got used to it though, seeing as the original gang was still there…kinda)
  • This image and this image. Also went along with the news of season 2. The first one was especially fun cause everyone was trying to pin down who each of the silhouette’s were.
  • “One will Rise, One will Fall, One will Die”: Can’t remember if this was released with the S2 news, or the video game. Either way, people went nuts theorizing who fit which.
  • Blue Beetle/Impulse Ship Name Vote: There was a fandom wide vote on the ‘official’ name for Blue Beetle and Impulse. Bluepulse won. Other contestants were SpeedBuggy and Chicken Wheezies. Personally, as hilarious as the latter one is, I’m glad it didn’t take hold cause I can’t spell ‘Wheezies consistently for the life of me.
  • NOW THAT’S A RUTABAGA

General/No Season 3 :(

  • The Fandom Wide Liveblogs: Some user (can’t remember who) was gracious enough to stream the episodes online as they were airing on the East coast. I got up at 4AM, being on HST, just to watch. It was really kinda cool to be switching between Tumblr and the stream to see all the amusing comments people would make and just how FAST they would spread.
  • THE DREADED HIATUSES: Everybody went fucking nuts and it was hilarious. Kinda think when it’s 1PM and you pulled an all-nighter the night before and everything is hilarious but also you eventually break down and cry because you’re so tired? That’s the best way I can describe the atmosphere then.We got the short end of the stick when it came to hiatuses. This post sums them all up pretty well. I look at the SU fandom rn and I am just…lmao yall can deal with 1 month, trust me.
  • The “Cancellation”: Never before have I seen so many people so motivated to save a TV show. Tons of people sent in letters and made calls to CN. Some even made Reach bottles to send to CN, sometimes with blue roses inside to help show support Green Lantern: TAS as well. (GL:TAS was aired alongside YJ on DC Nation, they were our less popular brother-in-arms) I saw someone even made a replica Aya helmet to send to them and it was just…wow.
  • #HeroesNeverDie: We actually managed to make a tag for supporting YJ and GL:TAS trending worldwide on Twitter. There were a bunch of other ones as well (symbiosi, crashthemonitor, etc) but that was the most significant one.
  • SMGO.tv: I’m not sure if it was YJ that brought about this short lived company, but at the very least it made it VERY popular. SMGO (The Show Must Go On) was a site designed for fans to crowdfund (kinda like Kickstarter) to bring back shows that were cancelled. For a while this was all anyone was talking about, we were so sure that this would work. We actually crashed their site twice. It eventually got shut down though as they didn’t have permission to do so from WB.

…and HOLY TAMOLE would you look at that, I managed to make a giant wall of text anyways. I am so sorry anon. There are LOADS more things that happened, but these are some of the big things that I remember. I’m sure as I post this though, others might add on other fun things that happened.

anonymous asked:

Saw that you reblogged that one Ouma theory where he wears his scarf to hide a chain on his neck. How about some Oumami with Amami finding out about that? Of course you don't gotta do that, just a thought! I also wanted to just say that you're really amazing at writing so many fics and I always get excited when I see that you've posted a new one! They're incredible, but I do hope you can take some nice breaks inbetween too cuz that looks like a lot of work.

Based on a theory by @hellofriend304 (Read it here! 030)

Straightjacket

Usually, Amami kept to himself, minding his own business and not butting into anyone else’s, but, there was something rather concerning to him.

It was Ouma Kokichi, the self-proclaimed leader and supposed SHSL Supreme Ruler of a shadowy organisation. The boy was cheery and had a bright smile, but there was a sense of something sinister lurking behind that happy façade of his, something genuinely scary behind that pure smile. It wasn’t just the feeling that Ouma gave off though, no, Amami noted that there was something more here. He clothes for one, were quite unusual.

I’ve got a love-hate relationship with this project…and I may have definitely bitten off more than I can chew.

I am in love with the Neon Highway AU @mittiepaul and @bitterbrokenbones are doing (seriously go check out their artwork and playlists for it it’s rad) and I love the clothing designs they’ve come up with. Actually translating those designs onto their 3d models though is turning into a bit of a Blender nightmare. The weight paints on the shoulder area is functional, but ultimately being held together by hopes and dreams.

Not really sure if I’ll end up scrapping the fanart I had planned, but I’m learning a lot about what not to do so ultimately it’s not a total failure even if I end up dropping it later.

Questions: 8) Tattoo? 19) Personality 😇? 💖💫🍃

Thanks for sending me asks, cutie! <3 <3 <3

8: Want any tattoos?
I’m not sure. Tattoos are quite painful and I’m not sure I would be able to go through with it. I admire anyone who can, often envying the cool designs people get but the pain is such a big factor for me. If I did get one though, I think my design would be something to do with hearts or the moon or cats or pretty girls - possibly drawn by @punziella 

19: A fact about your personality
Constantly evolving. I even have a list: 17 Ways to be a Princess. It’s a 17 step guide of things I want to be. For instance; kind, intelligent, humble, open-minded and brave. It helps me, or at least I hope it does.

*cough cough*
I am getting obsessed over something i have created. Help!
A romantic, cozy picture.

@fuzzyredpants said // who roleplays their frisk XD;


frisk sees this all the time… though amily normally doesn’t notice her… g!sans makes sure they don’t do anything too bad with the kiddo watching ;)

Background info about the characters:
G!sans is married to Amily (aka one of the previous fallen human/the green soul) and they adopted frisk as their child.

Amily is an original character created by me :)

Yet another Lich preview! I have been having so much fun with this guy! Fighting him already feels pretty good, especially when he starts summoning zombies all around and you have to keep killing them off while trying to dodge his attacks and try to stagger him with his own attack. 

For now his logic is simply a bunch of states linking to each other. Now I need to put in some intelligence and attack patterns and actually make him move around. I am also thinking of adding two more attacks that he starts using once his health is below half. Still not sure about it though. I’m also planning on putting in an HP bar for bosses in the HUD. So much work to do!

I hope you guys are enjoying the previews for this guy. I will take a video of a fight with him once all the logic is done. That’s all for now. Cya!

took another break (of course) and ended up scribbling out a little tracer! the designs in this game make me very gay- *cough* happy

Ah, what a shame. I guess the deal is over for you

(click for better view yay)
bcs lots of you seemed to like my evil!Law design x

Tbh I am not sure how their relationship would be. Really close, of course, that’s for sure. I think at some point Law would be too twisted to care about relationships, even though the outside world knows him as Doflamingo’s younger brother.

Dear Mr. Schama,

Recently, I watched your documentary series, The Story of the Jews.  Overall, I felt you captured the essence of the Jewish faith and culture. I thought you did a particularly good job of handling the issue of Zionism and the delicacy of the current political dynamic. However, as comprehensive as your documentary series was, there was one glaring, disappointing, oversight. In five, one hour episodes, you neglected to mention a single female contribution to the founding and development of the Jewish faith.  

I am a Jewish woman and have been the beneficiary of the equalizing force of modern Reform Judaism. I had an equal, integrated Jewish education, that culminated in a Bat Mitzvah, performing the same rights and rituals my father and older brother performed me.  I am proud to be Jewish, and even more proud to follow in the footsteps of the extraordinary Jewish women who have come before me.  Now, I run a blog called Badass Jewish Women.  I was so excited to watch your documentary series. You are an intelligent man, particularly adept at presenting information in a relatable, lucid, yet comprehensive fashion. I had no doubt in my mind that you would present the story of the Jews in the same way. But as I watched the program, I grew more and more confused. You were covering every stage in the development of Jewish culture, but without ever mentioning the women who contributed to those developments.  Our religion is decidedly matrilineal, but hour after hour of the series passed and women didn’t even make the footnotes. How can you discuss Jews and socialism without mentioning Emma Goldman?  You spent an entire episode on Zionism without once mentioning Golda Meir.  You spoke about the success of the Jewish people in America but failed to acknowledge Emma Lazarus, whose words are inscribed on the Statue of Liberty.  How can you discuss Jewish innovation in entertainment and vaudeville without mentioning Fanny Brice?  What about Sarah Schenirer, founder of the Bais Yakov movement? What about our biblical matriarchs: Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel, Leah, Ruth, Esther, and Miriam? What about Judith Butler or Hannah Arendt or Hannah Senesh?  Needless to say, I should not have to give you a list of important Jewish women. You should know who they are. You should know that they deserve to be mentioned and respected as innovators and icons next to their male peers.  

Simply put, Mr. Schama, women are 51% of the world’s population and 50% of the Jewish population.  You have done our community a great disservice in only telling half our story.  I cannot say that I will recommend your documentary to other people because it is not what it claims to be.  You cannot call your series “The Story of the Jews” when it is really just the story of Jewish men.  And I don’t want to hear that “you are a Jewish man” and you designed the documentary from your perspective.  Those responses aren’t good enough.  You have a mother, do you not? You are married? It is doubtless there are Jewish women in your life. Where were they in your series?  

Honestly though, the lack of women in your documentary should have been no surprise to me. The contributions of women are frequently erased from history, Jewish or otherwise.  Every day, I remind myself how lucky I am that both my family and the teachers responsible for my Jewish education made sure I learned about important Jewish women.  However, I know that many others were not– and are not– so lucky.   You had a unique opportunity with The Story of the Jews.  Airing on a platform like the BBC, it reached millions of viewers worldwide.  That’s millions of people who could have learned about the accomplishments and contributions of Jewish women.  Shame on you for wasting that opportunity.  


I can not demand anything from you.  I don’t expect you to remake the series. I can ask you to do better next time.  I ask you to consider that 50% of the population of our people deserves to be acknowledged and celebrated.  As a student of Jewish history, you should know what happens to a people when they are marginalized and erased from history.  I hope you remember this when you write your next book or film your next series.  Think on this and do better.  

Sincerely,

Rebecca

maple-hobo  asked:

Am O allowed to make requests? If so then how about the gang as humans? Much love from the Fluffy Giant across the way❤️.

Sure! I may or may not do all of them, but I love being given ideas ^w^

I can’t think of designs for everyone at the moment, so I hope these are good enough c:

Tiara Boobowski - Sonic Skyline AU
Design Idea

So for @drawloverlala Sonic Skyline AU, I am not sure if she or anyone else has done a Tiara  version but here was one of my own thinking.

I see Tiara being about Amy’s age for this, so that’s why she looks a tad kid like (though the whole AU design makes them look kiddish and cute so theres that)

I see her little staff being able to grow in length using the power of the jewel on top of it. So it’s not always so small and stubby. I sort of fused her two different designs I have seen. I made her shirt into a small poncho like article of clothing. I change her regular pants/shorts under her skirt into a more body suit to go under the poncho like thing. Her shoes are based on one version of the shoes where they were mostly white with red soles, I change it up a but obviously. I like to think when the staff is longer she can spin it very fast and hover or float for short periods of time.

I haven’t been posting much but that may change here soon I’m still unsure.
