(( I just installed Clip Studio Paint EX and am staring at it in horror. HOW DOES THIS THING WORK OMG? Photoshop and Sai are so much more intuitive, what the actual fuck. And people said this program is the intermediary between Sai and Photoshop… IT ISN’T. IT REALLY ISN’T.
edit: ok so the painting and blending in this program is pretty amazing, but i am srsly feeling the lack of sai brushes.))
I'm so confused with Spartos' and Darius' eye color...Spartos' eyes are black or terracotta? Darius have gray or terracotta eyes? What do you think?
I made this a lot bigger than I had to… also sorry for some bad quality pics, resizing them didn’t always go very well.
So let’s talk about Spartos first. In the anime his eyes are either red or black. So we won’t get much of an answer there as you can see.
The manga wouldn’t give us much information either. Because of the dark red eyes, it would be colored black anyways. The only panel where his eyes aren’t totally black is the panel where child Spartos is crying, but I don’t know if we can count that.
So… I tried to see if I could figure something out with the official colored art. Too bad that all the examples I could find aren’t of the highest quality so you still don’t get to see his eyes really well. In the left one, his eye looks a little red, while on the right it’s clearly black. The one in the middle is a bit harder, it could be red, it could just be light. I don’t know.
But then again when we take official art of snb…
I guess if I had to say anything for Spartos, it’s that his eyes are mostly black with some parts of deep red in it.
Spartos… when will you give us an answer here?
Then on the Darius!~
The same thing with Spartos and the anime applies to Darius, but then his eyes are either gray or red.
Then the manga
In both versions his eyes are colored white, which would mean he has a light eye color. So I kinda feel like gray is more his eye color. Once again I’m also taking official art into this, which would be the cover art of volume 6 here
But it once the picture isn’t big enough to clearly tell… So if anyone has found any better resolutions of these that could probably help.
That being said, I also don’t think the snb anime got all eye colors right (as with the well know ‘are Ja’far’s eyes gray or green’ discourse. Because if I compare Mystras through the art (manga/official art/anime) his eyes are black except anime.
I kinda hoped the Magi character encyclopedia would help me out here, but while it tells their height, weight and so much more, the eye color will stay a mystery for now.
Well, I am going to the mall tomorrow to buy some “men’s clothes” because I feel like experimenting with an androgynous look. I did some research this week on what to buy, but am not sure what else to do besides go to the store and try stuff on. I started getting interested again in trying it out because Good Friend mentioned it the last time I saw him. (He looked so excited about me trying to transition to a nongendered look that it made me want to try) So anyway I’m going tomorrow and am going to try to find some button-up shirts, vests, slacks, and jeans. Also I’m going to track down those dance tops to see if they will flatten me like that one post suggested.
Hi my name is Jean Ultime Madeleine Valjean Fauchelevent Leblanc and I have snowy white hair (that’s how I got my name) with a beard the same color and soft blue eyes like the heavens and a lot of people tell me I look like a saint (AN: if u don’t know what that is get da hell out of here!). I’m not related to Bishop Myriel but I wish I was because he’s a major fucking good man. I’m an ex-convict but I torn up my yellow passport and broke parole. I have a hidden tatoo. I’m also a factory owner, and I live in a small town called M-sur-M in France where I’m very respected. I’m the mayor (in case you couldn’t tell) and I wear mostly worn clothes. I love charity and I give all my money there. For example today I was wearing a yellow coat with a mismatched hat and a black waistocat, a white shirt and brown leather boots. I was looking very kind and melancholy. I was walking outside my factory. It was raining so there was a guy trapped under a cart, which I was very sad about so I saved him. Inspector Javert stared at me. I put up my middle finger at him.
because he hasn’t had the chance to explore his likes or dislikes, he doesn’t know what he prefers or hates when it comes to peculiar things. food, drinks, colors, style – he doesn’t fancy anything.
he’s used to sleeping on the floor. he’s often found himself walking up from where he passed out on the floor, so he’s just taken to sleeping there. cold, hard: he doesn’t know the pleasures of a nice bed or even a pillow.
it’s only been very few instances in his small life where he has felt ‘happiness’: when he was first created and given a purpose (though that quickly soured), little instances with namine, the very end after sora comforted; it’s small, small instances that don’t compare to the emotion he usually defaults to: anger. confusion = anger, frustration = anger, envy = anger, sadness = anger; it’s just a feeling that’s easier for him to express through lashing out.
that’s okay, but i’m not doing anything that a lot of other trans women of color aren’t already doing. i mean, i know what you’re trying to say, but i’m not really comfortable hearing it from an anon. btw, i have anon messages enabled so that trans women with questions or anyone with critical comments can get in touch more easily, so please just message me through your blog about things like this in the future.
I started drawing this a while ago for the fic Aut Viam Inveniam Aut Faciam, a hospital au by vivax on a03. Looking at the summary you think “oh this is just fluff” but then MYSTERY STUFF happens and you’re like “I have to keep reading to find out these things” then BOOM! Labem! who knew Mabel could be so ominous. usually that’s Bill’s thing. I’m still pretty excited to see how the story plays out (don’t get me wrong, the fluff and relationship stuff is great too)
