Three pages into the book and Alice was out like a light. I finished the book anyway, just to make sure. Untangling her little body from around me, I carefully shuffled off her tiny bed and took off her hearing aids without waking her. I placed them in the box on her bedside table before slipping out the room.

Shawn was already laying on the bed when I walked into the bedroom, still shirtless with grey sweatpants, eyes closed, although he wasn’t snoring.

“It’s only half nine.” I teased as I pulled my jumper over my head, dropping it on the never-ending mountain of laundry sitting on the chair in the corner of the room. This morning didn’t help the situation; instead of being productive and actually putting his stuff in the wash, Shawn just added all of his dirty tour clothes to pile. Our room now had the lovely sent of various pets, Shawn’s cologne, and sweat.

You get used to it.

“Mhm.” He hummed sleepily without moving an inch. His hands were behind his head, body fully stretched out dead in the centre, leaving a small square of space for Zoey whose head perked up at the sound. I tried not to stare, but come on, who wouldn’t stare at this amazing piece of art that I somehow ended up marrying.

“You’re such an old man.” I laughed when one of his eyes popped open, eye brow raising as if challenging me to say it again.

“At least I don’t make grunting sounds when I try to stand up.”

My mouth dropped at the stupid smirk on his face. That cheeky bastard. Grabbing the first thing I could fine – which just happened to be my bra – and chucked it at his face, only for it to hit him in the chest instead. He chuckled and picked up the piece of underwear, mumbling something about keeping it before shoving it under his pillow.

I - there was no words.

“It was one time. And I was pregnant.” I huffed in my defence as I shimmed out my jeans and socks, leaving me in just my tank top and pants. My arms instinctively wrapped around my stomach, not comfortable with how tight the fabric was. It was stupid, I knew it was. He was my husband! I shouldn’t feel this way in front of him. But that didn’t stop the alarm bells rung in my head, thinking Shawn had noticed something was up, but he didn’t seem to catch on.

His eyes were fully open now, smirk still planted on his face as his eyes searched down my body. He sat up, moving to sit at the end of the bed as he stretched out his hand towards me. I knew from that funny look in his eyes that I shouldn’t have trusted him, because as soon as I reached for his hand, he tugged me a bit too harshly onto the bed.

Wilford is blindly lucky or his planning skills are as good as they are stubble.

During Markiplier T.V. Video the Ego’s get together and have a meeting about their plans to take back the channel. Taking a pinch of salt with me I’m venturing to say this plan was what “Markiplier T.V.” was originally supposed to be, a show meant to bring you “the very best of Markiplier 24 hours a day.” But Mark wasn’t in that tape, it was all skits, it was all characters.

When the video on the T.V. ends Wilford is the first to speak, and he’s holding the remote and is standing in front of the T.V.

“So what do ya think?” Wilford sound and looks genuinely excited and happy with his work.

But the other Ego’s didn’t appreciate the video.

??: “Well it is bull shit.”

The camera cuts to the Ego’s as they begin to complain and there words become entangled in one another’s and then back to Wilford who seems displeased and begin to point at the Ego’s and say “Shut up” over and over until they do just that. He then says,

“Warfstache has taken enough of this shit from you guys. Look, this is an opportunity that can’t be missed! It’s for everyone, not you (He says to The Silver Shepherd who flips him off in reply.) and it’s gonna sweep the nation so listen to old Warfy ‘cause, uh, Wilford knows what’s best.”

Wilford is arguably the most influential Ego, he has the Warfstache - a calling card of the channel, the most fully fleshed out videos (at this time), and is a inuniverse T.V. star and the idea itself isn’t bad, a show that features the Ego’s 24 hours a day would give them plenty of spotlight, if they could learn to share it, and Wilford’s background with T.V. as a reporter seems to help get things done.

But the Ego’s are still not happy.

Dark: “Look Wilford, I appreciate what you’ve done for us, but how is this supposed to help us take back control?”

Google: “I feel like it deviated from our primary objective, if were to get back on track we need to reassign our goals and unify into a singular strategy.”

Ed: “Well I think we’re missing the bigger picture here! I was promised a 30 second spot! An’ where was it! I barely got 5 there and I know how to count to 5, I know how to count to a good deal if you know what I’m talking about yeah. No? Alright fine, (Now muttering) fuck you.

Bim: “Look I think everyone is overlooking the most important detail here, I was supposed to be the host of that game show segment, I mean, I’m Bim Trimmer.

The Silver Shepard: “I know I took a break from fighting crime for a while to pursue a-a job in entertainment, but this isn’t what I had in mind, considering I wasn’t actually in that.

Wilford, looking very confused: “What are you talking about! This is revolutionary, it’s gonna change everything we know about television, trust you and me .”

Dr. Iplier: “Listen guys, I’m a doctor, I-I knows what’s best and it wasn’t actually that bad. It featured my ideas quite well and I came across as a very professional and handsome actor, so I say we keep it.”

The Host: “The camera shoots over to the Host who continues to talk about the situation and then it pans over to the next person.”

Ed tried to sell his son and The King of the Squirrels pops in while the Ego’s keep arguing in the background.

Dark: “Look Will, I respect you, I always have, but you’re missing the point of this endeavor.”

I think Wilford Understood perfectly what to do, the others just misinterpreted his actions and the effect they’ll have.

Wilford may not have given them the full immediate take over they wanted but he did get a new generation of Markiplier fans, some who has no idea Mark even did skits, to starting making art, rp blog, theories, a.u.’s, to start rewatching old videos and analyzing things and trying to put together the puzzle.

Wilford made the ego’s relevant again and he did this in a loud flashy “Hey look at me” video that’s leaving us with enough questions, few answers and plenty to analyze. It’s filled with nearly endless possibilities so that we can’t be pacified with a single video. We want more, we need more, we can’t wait for more.

Because that’s how Wilford operates, he’s loud, flashy, leaves you with more questions than answers and has more possibilities than certainties that leaves you craving more.

And just like Wilford, the video has just enough for us to bite down into, just enough for us to rip up and put back together, just enough pieces that we know what could be but we don’t know what will be.

Wilford breathed a new life into these old Ego’s in a way that wasn’t to forced or over complicated, and that’s something no one but he could do. It’s safe to say that this is going to be a long lasting event that will permanently make the Ego’s a large unforgivable badge on Mark’s channel.


Nier: Automata distracted me way too much, but it was about time I tried to finish this up…

Anyway, shading for a broad daylight setting has always been a difficult thing for me to grasp. On one hand, I like using hard shadows to make shapes “pop out” more. On the other hand, you have to be very conservative with your hard shadows or the shading will conflict with the environment’s lighting. The artistic struggle is real…

Darkness is a harsh term, don’t you think ? 
And yet it dominates the things I see. (x)

I post drawings at 5 am because I’m smart. Also that FUCKING SWORD took me like 3 hours I never want to look at that damn reference picture ever again. The crown looks kinda weird but eh whatever I tried (I’m thinking about making another piece with Merlin, so maybe you’ll see that pop around in the next month who know maybe I’m becoming productive)
(you can click for better quality and all that jazz)


at first I wasn’t going to do this, and I’m assuming this is from the outfit promt, but as soon as I thought of Freezy Pop in a sunhat I tried to draw these


I feel like its [pop music] intention is very, very beautiful. Some people see it as cynical, as pandering, as trying to appeal to everyone, as if it isn’t art. Pop music is a pure study of us as human beings. It tries to examine what it is that brings human beings together on a very essential level. It works out what we all relate to is the human experience. It’s beautiful. A hit record that works for millions of people is a beautiful thing; it’s inclusive.

In progress, Done the line art for Bendy and Jack, tried drawing in a different style. Got to admit I started drawing this after watching the Rick and Morty  ‘WUBBA LUBBA DUB DUB’ VR lets play, which had a heavy influence on my change in style for this one.
Bendy and the Ink Machine pt.2 though. Can’t wait for the next parts of both lets plays to come out. I bloody jumped out my skin when the blob ink things popped up. 

You Must Be The Roomie [Otayuri]

Summary: AU where Yuri Plisetsky is a 19 year old social media star/dancer and is at college, and his roommate is in a band with Otabek Altin, who Yuri can’t help but pine over.

Keep in mind: this fic follows the idea of yuri acting like a punk ass douche bag, but hes actually kinda shy and smol (especially around otabek). Otabek is a bit of a sarcastic lil shit in this, and definitely the dom lol

How to get into Japanese shoegaze

Start with Paint in Watercolour’s “Velocity” and just move on to any of these other albums. Seriously, just throw a dart at the board. I’ll list my favorite track from the albums in parentheses

  • Clams - Clams (P-NUT BUTTER IRONY). Probably one of the coolest songs recorded within the last 20 or so years
  • Sugar Plant - Trance Mellow (Impure). I’m sure you’ve heard of these guys before
  • Cruyff in the Bedroom - Ukiyogunjou (Ukiyogunjou). The best
  • Cosmicdust - Snow Noise Assemblage (Sunday)
  • Coaltar of the Deepers - Robot EP (My Speedy Salah)
  • Kinoko Teikoku - either Eureka (National Highway Slope) or Long Goodbye EP (Paranoid Parade)
  • Mass of the Fermenting Dregs - Zero Comma, Iro Toridori no Sekai (Zero Comma, Iro Toridori no Sekai). One of my all time favorite opening tracks
  • My Dead Girlfriend - Ixtab (12gatsu, Poolside, Ukabu Shita). Tbh this entire album is a 10
  • Dive - Freeze Frame EP (listen to the whole fucking thing)
  • Nanocycle - Something Burning (Elliott Carnival). This is another one of my favorites. Don’t let the lame album art turn you off
  • Hartfield - True Color, True Lie (Girl Like You). If you just got out of a relationship, you’re welcome. Great dream pop that transcends the language barrier. I think this one’ll speak to any materialization of melancholy
  • Plastic Girl in Closet - Cocoro (Collage Flowers). Good god damn. I’d honestly tell you to save this one for last. This album is so refined. It’s pretty much perfect
  • Plastic Tree - Ammonite (either Thirteenth Friday or Duet). I think this album is pretty polarizing and tries a lot of different things. I really like it but I could understand the B-side being pretty uncomfortable
  • The Pillows - Fool on the Planet (the whole damn thing. If I had to pick two for this list, it’d be either Swanky Street or Carnival). I have a hard time calling this shoegaze even though they toy with a shit ton of fuzz and reverb. Regardless, this is one of Japan’s most important records IMO and you should probably listen to it if you haven’t already. PSA: you might recognize some of the tracks from Fooly Cooly. Shoutout to Kazuya Tsurumaki
  • Burrrn - Blaze Down His Way Like the Space Show (Coming Place)
  • Serial TV Drama - Ginger (Happy Packing and Ginger are great closers). Not shoegaze but I love to recommend this band. Check out this one and The Band Apart if the other albums are annoying you
  • Supercar - Highvision (Otogi Nation). Supercar and Hartfield are the best Japanese dream pop bands
  • Pasteboard - Glitter (Flipper)

I know I left out some staples like Luminous Orange, Tokyo Shoegazer and Pastel Blue but whatever. I doubt anyone’s gonna read this anyway

anonymous asked:

hey, I was wondering, since you are artists with some of the most unique styles online, how do you feel about this? Can you share experiences or advice with developing it and what you think about people copying styles. Ive honestly heard a lot of things and I was curious about your opinion. Thanks for the time!

(cont of previous ask) I also wanted to add my experience - when I really like an artist sometimes I feel like it “brushes off” on my drawings. Im kinda paranoid with this so I end up toning it down so that people dont get onto me. Its just that Im afraid of how fans rage about such things. However a lot of professionals say that style is when you pick things you like from other people’s stuff and arrange them the way you like it. Im just confused.


We’ve had this sitting in our inbox for a while, and this is kind of a hard thing to answer and talk about, especially while we where still very active in a scene where this was happening to us a lot, sorry it took so long to get around to it, Steph will be your host for this evening!

I think copying styles is a pretty big no when it’s not for your own amusement or education. However, there is a world of difference between copying something and being inspired by it or learning from it. I think it’s great to have artists you love brush off on you, it is true that we collect the things we like, the problem doesn’t come from collecting those things, but rather comes from not doing anything with them afterwards. It is like the difference between making a photocolauge and just pasting one photo in the middle of your page and calling it a day.

When we create, we what we project are the sum of our knowledge and experiences as curated by us. The more knowledge and experiences you have, the wider array of things you will be able to create. Experience other artists, take what you need and leave the rest, but understand what you take. If you don’t understand it, it will be hard to make it your own.

For example, something that is often taken from me is the way I draw tufts of fur and the way I hatch things. Often, when I see other people copying this whole-sale, it looks really weird and awkward. This is because they don’t understand the choices that went into the shapes I chose or why I even chose to have them in the first place. 

I am all about the flow and form and weight of the linework I do. If the lines I am adding don’t contribute to this, they don’t get to go into the picture. The tufts of fur aren’t really about adding fluff, they are about following the shape and flow of the thing they are on to create more exaggerated shapes. This either adds to the motion of the lines, or can be used to add more weight to a shape. These are things I go for in my non-anthro art, but characters with fur give me even more shapes to work with and I push that as hard as I can:

I look for opportunities to do this with any features the characters I am drawing has and exaggerate them to push this. Body types, cloths, anything. The design of a character is so important to how the character will feel when their shapes are used.

I hope people who may try to copy the tufts we do use this to create their own ways for making shapes for the effect they want and not to more effectively copy us :P But the point is, learning why you like something or what it’s purpose is in the art it’s part of, is what will help you achieve the same thing you like in your own way.

Since my art is constructed around the idea of flow, and the lines and shapes I chose for doing so are done to add to this, Two of my big inspirations in art is are Wendling and Herrera:

While it may seem obvious now that it’s been pointed out, it is clear that this is not a copy of either style. I have many other influences and I have my own vision and goals with my art, which lets me forge my own path with the resources I have at hand. This is inspiration.

I don’t really mind when I see people copying my style for fun or to learn, we do what we want with our art for our own pleasure, but I really hate it when people doing it are also selling it. Now, you are stealing from me.

When I say copying a style, I’m talking about being able to look at something and say “well this is just a cheap version of ___”. It was really weird joining the furry scene in regards to this. In the general art scene, we where very small people in a very large, diluted pond, there where a lot of inspiring figures and a lot to look at and people where taking these inspirations from all over and shaping them in new ways.

Joining FA, was taking something completely different and jumping into a relatively small pond with it. There is a lot of unique artwork in the community, but there are a few styles that stand out as what “furry art” looks like. We got people’s attention pretty fast and it was almost scary how quickly we started seeing influences of our style in people’s work… more frightening still when copycats started popping up. And I’m not talking about “oh they like hatching kind of like we do” or whatever, no I mean, setting up their artwork the same way, copying our conventions without understanding them, looking like all their stuff was frankensteined together from various pieces of art we had done, stealing our IA journals and switching out things like “Kicking ass” to “Ass Kicking!” for every single theme we had on our list. There where a few people who so totally tried to steal our artistic identity, you honestly couldn’t say anything about them as artists in their own right. Then they take this, and sell it. It was frustrating and it was upsetting and it still is.

It is hard to respect people like this as “fans”. They are not an appreciator of your work, they are a re-packager of it. They don’t learn from you or study your work, they take what you draw and mimic it in the most superficial way possible. They feel like they own it and the things you do and heaven forbid anyone mention it (even if it’s not you) because they will lash out at you in vicious ways, even if you never respond to it. How a person can be so thoughtless and self entitled about what they do and how the treat you can call themselves a “fan” is beyond me. A lot of art in the furry fandom, especially the stolen stuff, is fairly immediately a commodity to be bought and sold and often people like this don’t really post for fun, they post to sell and they don’t care how you feel about it. As someone this happens to, it feels a lot like finding someone on ebay selling your art on cigaret cases.

If you are not one of these people, you’re probably ok :P Despite the few times this has happened, none of our fans have ever come after anyone or torn anyone apart or even said anything to them, instead sending me e-mails and notes, if that. People generally don’t seem to care all that much, the same people who point it out to me buy from them because it’s honestly not that important to them.

There is this weird feeling that artists aren’t really people who can be spoken to or who have feelings or who will even help you through phases you get stuck in or encourage sources of inspiration. I dunno, it’s cool that this is something you think about and if you’re worried about copying someone in particular, maybe ask them about it. I’ve never been shy about sharing my influences or inspiration or explaining why I make certain choices in my art. Learning about where people come from is much more helpful in forging your own path, rather than following in their footsteps :)

Haven’t posted anything in a while due to a combination of screwing up my sleep schedule and starting work on some slightly longer-term projects, but I’m trying to get back into the swing of things. Here’s a sketch of a goofy concept that popped into my head entirely at random a while back: reverse-costume Sailor Moon. I tried to make the image look like it was lifted from an old VHS, of the type one might find episodes of the old Sailor Moon dub recorded on.
