idk if i like this coloring but whatever

The solarpunk!Luigi and steampunk!Mario piece from the stream today - thanks to everybody who dropped by!! took me ~7hrs not counting first sketch to finish this piece. what am I doing with my life 

hrt appreciation post here we go

(it’s long so prepare or scroll really fast if you wanna pass it)

me, 1993, wtf is a gender i wear diapers for god sakes 

late 90s, rockin some shades and some crazy sweaters even though i live in FL (still do that to this day)

time jump to… early 2000s, flexin and loving dogs (still doing that to this day wassup somethings never change)

oh wow here comes Middle School™ and the emo phase begins (sadly no pics during the emo phase)

oh shit what up 2008 scene phase yes that is a STAY BRUTAL™ sweater) 

then ya boy calmed down a bit and stopped giving a fuck about impressing ppl (idk why I thought being scene was impressive dont ask)

ya boy graduated HS and was free to do whatever to his hair so colors were everywhere but also was the time when his self worth was at his lowest and was dressing and looking how he thought people would want so he could get them to like him (ew right?) 

ya boy got his very first mohawk and rocked that shit for a few years

dis is some pics of the year he starts questioning his gender identity and after 6 months of research and “soul searching” decides to start HRT

yo boy is SIX MONTHS ON T !!! and starting to grow facial hair B)

YO BOY IS ONE (1) YR ON T AND JUST HAD TOP SURGERY! but also shaved his head a few months back and feels hella ugly lol 

fwd and we are now 1.5 years on T ! Hair is finally coming in and he’s look decent these days.

WHOOOA LONG HAIR WHO DIS!!! YA BOYS TWO (2) YEARS ON T !!! and 1 YR POST OP! Feeling amazing tbh

ooo shit we winding down now yall

ya boy is Two (2) years and 3 months on T and thankful every day that his blood work came back with the all clear to start T, thankful for his support group and friends/family that love and support him (shout out to my sister), thankful for how well he’s transitioned even though it was long and hard on the mental state a lot of the time, he pushed through and came out the other end smiling and happy in his skin. Thankful every day that he can afford to start on HRT, thankful every day for all the support he gets online from kind words to donations that helped afford top surgery + donations I got when he was filing for the name change as well. 

I’m posting this in hopes that it helps anyone who needs it. I’m a huge believer in doing things for yourself and making sure your happiness/comfort is always first before someone else’s. I hope it gives inspiration and motivation to those who are scared to transition in fear of what their families will think, in fear of how they will transition, fear of all the nerve wracking things that comes with HRT. Hoping that it shows you, that while HRT isn’t an over night fix, that takes time and a lot of hard days but in the end, you come out on top. It’s still a struggle some days but nothing compared to the days when I was pre-T. 

Feel free to message me if you have any questions about HRT with T and I’m happy to answer to the best of my ability!

My name is NIkk and I’m non binary! He/him pronouns =)

Crediting is loved, but not necessary. Just don’t TAKE credit for them, and we’re good.

They have captions

Out with the old and in with the… Equally old

Aka, Haggar is gonna be the final boss and y’all gonna regret sleeping on her

FIRST

Just look at the difference in how she’s presented between s1 and s4

Seasons 1 and 2 are hands down Zarkon’s bigges seasons (thus far)

He’s presented in an eye-catching red against the purple and silver of the rest of the empire.

Haggar? Notice how she’s framed behind him, and made small by comparison. She’s notable enough to have a distinct design, but she’s pretty much only ever seen in proximity to Zarkon in some way.

With Zarkon at the forefront of course

Looking at season 4 though, we get a rather dramatic shift in how they’re BOTH presented

FIRST OFF

Our very first scene on the Galra side opens up with this

Not once has Haggar had such a long scene to herself (the closest we’ve gotten is when she first registers the awakened castleship, but even then it quickly cuts to Zarkon)

Heck, this really brings attention to the fact that while we’ve never had Zarkon without Haggar, we’re starting to drift into the territory of seeing Haggar without Zarkon.

Cause idk about you, but we’ve never had an isolated scene like this with the guy, he’s always been talking to Haggar or beating the crap out of Voltron.

Similar shot to our first screencap, and notice how different everything is framed.

Now, Haggar is in the forefront, and the way Zarkon is framed makes him look small in comparison to her (which I admit never thought was possible, yet here we are)

Even his colors have changed, washing out from his wine red to something only a few shades away from Haggar’s telltale purple, giving credence to the thought Haggar’s theme/character/arc/whatever is becoming much more prominent.

Like

Just look at that, nearly a 180 from before, she’s still in the forefront, and even the color scheme has cooled more to her tones

I’d keep an eye on our babe here if I were you

Choose wisely, Pacifica

(haha i just wanted to draw my version of older! dip and mabes. Feel free to tag as either dipcifica or mabifica

or both because both is good

both is awesome)

describing eye colors isn’t actually v helpful as a description??? talk about the makeup smeared on the left side, the lines under their eyes, the sloppily cut hair obscuring their eyes from view, how bloodshot or sunken they seem in the face, how wide they go at the slightest sound, how glassy and unblinking they seem, how they’re always darting away

all of that tells me a bit more about the character than whatever shade of gemstone they most resemble, seriously

i was enabled somewhat by friends and ended up making berserk heart buttons LMAO!! i just drew whatever came to mind at like 1am so um .. here we are

i got the [ griffith apologist ] ribbon at ALA for his heart and i’m. genuinely not sure how to feel about this LMFAO thank you

there’s only one lone guts left in stock and it feels kind of fittingly sad… but at least he’s got puck.

thatalliegator99  asked:

How do you put texture on your art like that? 0:

Ahhhh i do this by using Clipstudio (idk if manga has it) You would need this program 

1.  Get whatever drawing you have, shaded or flat colored, but the gradient effect it gives doesnt really show cool like something shaded

2. simply just select Tone in the Layer Property tab and thats pretty much the only thing to do!

3. The image comes out screentones and pixelated but be aware its ONLY Black and White tones

4. You can edit the transparency of the b&w out if some users dont know
Clipstudio > Edit > Convert Brightness to Opacity
Sai > Layer > Luminance to Transparency 

5. Then you do whatever you want with the screentone and just mess around if you looking for it to go over your art

6. thats it pretty much , finish up, render it, burn it alive, JUST DO IT
