Day 6 is Hobby/Pastime, and the story revolves around Buchimaru getting a reboot. I decided to go with Buchimaru and Makoto through the ages, so we got a baby Makoto in Buchi pajamas, a tot Makoto getting a big stuffed Buchi after her big sis won it for her, etc. Conceptually probably my favorite piece I did for this week, thought I wish I gave myself more time to color it. Also if you’re wondering “HEY, why does Sae have brown hair, and not silver”, and the answer to that my friend is being a prosecutor is a stressful job. Link to fic at the top.
Do you know of any artists or any paintings from history depicting people of colour, not just black but all kinds of races? I love the art you post on your blog by the way!
Jean leon gerome has some really great art. He traveled extensively so he painted people from different cultures. Also I have an Asian art tag which has paintings of east Asian people. I know it’s hard to find, but I’ll put a tag for the paintings with people of color. As a poc I wish there were more of these paintings within classical art. Thank you so much 💕
Gwendoline Christie on what drives Brienne to never give up: “I think the relationship between Brienne and Catelyn Stark, the moment where Brienne realized strength in another woman… I remember quite fervently that line she says to Catelyn Stark, ‘You have courage.’ Not a man’s courage, but a woman’s courage. I think it’s that realization that Brienne didn’t have to force herself into a mold of masculinity; she didn’t have to take the path of men before her in order to be taken seriously or to do good. That she could be propelled by her own intuitive sense of what was right, in terms of a moral compass. There’s something very beautiful about the way she’s projected that into the future, that it doesn’t matter if someone lives or dies, because that goes into that person’s daughters, which feels significant. To Brienne, the Stark girls are her own. In her own way, I think Brienne feels that even if it’s one small thing for one person or two people, that that’s going to perpetuate a sense of good, which maybe subconsciously creates a greater sense of equality. That’s what I think is driving her; she’s connecting to an idea that’s greater than herself.”
