ok so i finally got my new macbook pro a couple days ago and i’m just blown away by how well it performs. i got the highest tier graphics card (amd radeon pro 460) expecting it to hopefully run portal 2 or smth. instead i found out that it can run dragon age: inquisition at good quality in 4K with a frame rate of about 30fps. i’m pretty sure that’s better than what my gaming rig can do.
also you can plug the power cord into the left side or the right side this is the future
anyways expect a pic spam of my new inquisitor coming up soon.
"haha we only hate cishet aces! Gay and trans aces are welcome and supported!!!!"
*literally reblog every existing ace post with some inane comment insulting the entire ace community/asexuality itself*
*turn positivity posts into discourse or bullying, name calling posts*
*make posts about hating aces and give "friendly reminders" that their experiences are invalid, and tags them as "ace positivity,"*
*spam the positivity, pride, and actually tags with everything from hatred and discourse to actual porn and graphic images, condemns AVEN, but demands that aces stay in "their own" spaces online*
*literally ignore intersectionality and how it affects any ace person*
*insist that its a physical impossibility to be raped for being asexual, even goes to tell survivors that they know the circumstances of their abuse better than they do*
"the entire ace community is disgusting trash and I can't wait for it to die out"
"the whole ace community is racist!" *ends argument with AAVE term even though they're not black*
"asexuality is a special snowflake identity that's not even a real sexuality"
"the split attraction model was wrong for me so its homophobic and no one else is allowed to have split attraction! Also I thought I was ace once but I was actually gay so asexuality is homophobic!"
*call trans/gay/m-spec aces cishet*
....how dare you accuse us of hating aces!!! We only hate cishets!!! I can't believe you would side with them!!!!
Image 1: I’m back on board this week. Feeling a whole lot better each day but it’ll be another 7 weeks until I’m back to match fitness.

Image 2: A quick model tonight with only 6 steps in the tree but a rendering issue slowed me up for a little while but done is better than perfect.
Image 3: There is a something going on with the software I can’t figure out. It reduces the quality of the curves to speed up graphics but they’re not regenerating the quality when I render, although that’s what it’s set to do.
Just out of curiosity, why did you go with an x99 setup, but only throw an RX480 in there instead of opting for a better graphics card?
That entirely depends on what I’m doing with the computer, it doesn’t need more than an RX 480 right now, but it’s important I can heavily upgrade my RAM for VM’s.
And the RX 480 outperforms GTX 1070′s in the new resident evil in 1080 and 4k because it’s DX12 optimized. So it’s a more future-proofed card than the current GTX line except for 1080′s and it cost a hundred dollars less than the 1070..
As far as gaming goes, I don’t have monitors that take advantage of more than that, they’re 1080 @ 60Hz. The only reason I’d want better graphics is for CAD and rendering, etc, but not for now.
I can’t just have some psychopathic murderers getting to the vault before I do. I mean, don’t get me wrong, it’s cute that you all think you’re the heroes of this little adventure, but you’re not. I’m the damn hero. Welcome to Pandora, kiddos.
I’m doing Sticker commissions to save up for a graphic tablet. That way i’ll be able to draw at a better and faster pace than before.
I’ll be able to make stickers like the ones above. They can be NSFW and SFW themed. It’s easier to make emotions however. So keep in mind that emotions will be made faster than others.
1 sticker €3
You can also buy a batch.
3 stickers €8
5 stickers €12
10 stickers €25
15 stickers €40
If you’d want more than 15 we’ll discuss a custom price.
Contact me via my email: email@example.com, via my Twitter, via here on tumblr messaging or via ask on tumblr as well. Please don’t message me on Telegram unless we agreed to speak there.
///////////// - IMPORTANT STUFF - ////////////
- Commissions are Paypal only. - I have the right to decline commissions. - Provide a reference. Sheets are preferred, but if you have multiple images i can do that too. - Normal commissions here - Please check the original post for updates on spots.
I had fun finally finishing up my last BOTM just because I really enjoyed looking through blogs so I’m going to do a super informal awards thing here. So informal, in fact, that I’m typing this on mobile and don’t have a graphic. Unfortunately this means I also can’t do a read more.
Important to note:
1. Winners are no “better” than other entrants. They’re just blogs that particularly stood out to me who I want to recognize.
2. I will probably follow a lot of you, so it isn’t a fool’s errand to enter. Also don’t feel bad if you’re not a “big” studyblr I honestly have no idea what that even means and I’ll look at your blog objectively I promise
3. I’m not doing this to rank studyblrs I honestly want to see new/more blogs and why not have the added benefit of giving some of you atta boys/girls?
OK NOW FOR THE RULES
- mbf @academla
- check out @theacademiczine issue 2 comes out in less than a month woo
- REBLOG no likes pls
- u can sign up for my texts / follow my personal Instagram / write on my wall if u want and there are links in my description
- be a studyblr
- this has to get like 50 notes idk I don’t even know this is so informal who’s gonna reblog it
- this will be over on Monday, April 4 at 11:59 pm EST
AND PRIZES AND SUCH
- categories will be for fav theme, fav URL, fav OC, and favorite overall
- I don’t want to say “best” because I feel like that implies the winners are inherently better but it’s not it’s based on personal preference and faves
- if enough people enter I’ll do multiple winners of each in situations where I can’t choose
- which I probably won’t be able to
- anyway u get a follow from me here and if u have an Instagram
- I’ll promo you on my blog
- maybe give you a s/o in my next YT video
- I will eventually put you on my winners page but tbqh I do not have my life together and haven’t set that up yet
- you’ll have won this very very low quality tumblr awards which is a prize in itself really
That’s basically it but if I think of anything to add I’ll edit this post and reblog. Thanks to anyone who does reblog! Love you all!
Being an artist with low-to-average ability is painful and hopeless, especially when you are from low-economic class and not really smart or physically strong. It’s not a demotivation; it’s just what I’m currently going through.
I hope, though, no one regrets their life and desperately hopes that you can do something better than just drawing. It’s really sad and painful; especially when you start wondering why you exist at all. You don’t have any meaning to live, and you can do nothing at all. Death starts to sound promising; if only your principle against suicide isn’t that strong and you respect your mother’s struggle in giving you birth and raising you to this point. But you can’t help regret every single thing in your life, your graphic tablet started getting salty from tears, and eventually you just don’t know what to do except just spending days just like that - waiting for change; or death. Even just small hope can be helpful, maybe divert your thought from death and death for a while.
But I have a message for you; learn and exercise as much as possible when you are still young. When you are older, it’s not impossible, but much harder and eventually you have to face reality that you can’t pursue your dream being an artist. Living as an artist is not a light choice - because I know, artists’ way of thinking is different from others (at least, that’s what I feel and see from other artists), and I understand money is not our priority in life. We are satisfied just by creating. But being realistic, we do need money. That’s why, know yourself. Choose your path to be an artist as soon as possible - that will certainly give you more advantage. No turning back, though. Don’t listen to others about what to choose in your life. be successful without regret, and always be happy.
I really hope no one will end up like me - regretting why I am like this, why I didn’t just devote myself to art since the beginning (while it’s so clear I have to be in this path) instead wasting my youth to different things I don’t like and I can’t focus to improve myself, why I live at all. It’s indeed painful like this, and I can’t help to think that it would be better if I don’t exist at all.
I don’t write this to ask for pity, though. I write this just to open your eyes, that sometime in life, everything can get bitter and sad, and maybe, just maybe, being a little bit pessimistic can be helpful to prevent you from impossible dream. Dream high, but prepare yourself the best wings, and also prepare for the most painful fall as well.
I’ll be perfectly honest, the situation calls for it, I do not love this city. The crush of the unwashed garbage stacked on the sidewalk, the air that seems to adhere to your skin, the layer of filth you can never completely wash away.
So I got a professional super-high quality scan made of this drawing in black & white to save, and then went ahead and colored the original. I didn’t think the color would be better than the black & white, but I think I actually like it better!
I’m super happy with this. Like, SUPER HAPPY. It might be one of the best things I’ve ever drawn, and not just because it’s Kristoff. ;)
By the way, since this is now digitally stored at the professional graphics company, I can get super-high quality digital prints made, and even Giclée prints on fancy paper/canvas/etc. So, if anyone is interested in buying a very, very nice copy of this (either color OR black & white!), please do let me know! :D
