Les Raboteurs de Parquet (The Floor Scrapers), 1875, by Gustave Caillebotte (1848-1894)

“This is one of the first paintings to feature the urban working class. It reintroduces the subject of the male nude in the painting, but in a strikingly updated form. Instead of the heroes of antiquity, here are the heroes of modern life - sinewy and strong - in stooped poses that would appear demeaning if they did not convey a sense of masculine strength and honest labor.”

Rubens: “Skinny may be in. But fat is where it’s at.”

Disclaimer: This information is collected through illustrators listed in TCG cards, bulbapedia and observational analysis made by myself, since much of the information regarding official art is not published. So there might be errors.
Ken Sugimori is also still working on both pokemon and human characters for the series, so he is likely behind many designs that are simply illustrated by someone else. He should still not be credited for work he did not do.

Decided to expand on my thoughts about people praising Sugimori for having improved his art over the years. While it’s entirely true that he is much better than he used to, the examples shared in posts like that are 90% of the time not drawn by Sugimori at all.
So let’s stop spreading misinformation as the differences in art style can be easily pointed out.

Now you know! :)

UPDATE!
Some people had trouble telling apart the differences so I drew some examples to make it easier! I elaborate on it more on that post: ->HERE<-

EDIT: Maxie’s redesign is drawn by Sugimori, not Ohmura. I actually knew that when I was collecting the pictures but ended up putting it on the wrong page since Archie was there :’D

Honestly Bakugou would be the best sparring partner for Uraraka since he won’t hold back at all and recognizes her strength anyways! Also my excuse for wanting to drawing those pants cause I love doing that in my own pair … Ehehe

Also bonus!

The History Behind ‘The Woman in Gold’

Easily one of my favourite paintings, by one of my most favourite artists, Klimt’s painting ‘Adele Bloch-Bauer’s Portrait’ is well-known for many reasons. Clearly seen it was created in Klimt’s “golden phase,” this painting is so striking not just for it’s beauty, but also its long and tragic history.

Adele Bloch-Bauer and her husband, Ferdinand Bloch, were close friends with the artist, Gustav Klimt. She modeled for Klimt on numerous occasions, and Ferdinand commissioned two portraits of his wife. The married couple were well-known lovers of art. Adele would entertain many artists at their home - from musicians to painters. The Bloch-Bauer’s were a prominent Jewish family in Viennese society. This is precisely why they were targeted by Nazis in the 1940’s. The Bloch-Bauer’s home was emptied of its beautiful and loved possessions - including Adele Bloch-Bauer’s portrait. Of course, no Nazi could have the portrait of a Jewish woman hanging in their home, so her name was erased from the painting’s history and instead given the title “Woman in Gold.”

Eventually the painting was collected by the Austrian state gallery, and became one of Austria’s artistic ‘Golden Age’ symbols. Her story does not end here, because years later, in 2000, Adele’s niece - Maria Viktoria Bloch-Bauer (Maria Altman) - sued Austria for the ownership of the painting. Maria remembered visiting her aunt’s and uncle’s home throughout her childhood. After Adele died, their visits included a viewing of the gorgeous golden portrait. While Maria later fled Austria and settled in America with her husband, she eventually returned decades later after being told that the painting was rightfully hers. In Adele’s will she had asked that her husband donate her paintings to the gallery, yet in her husband’s will he had left them to his family. After years and years of court hearings and trials, Maria finally won back the painting.

Adele Bloch-Bauer’s portrait now sits in a Manhattan gallery, after being purchased for $135 million (US). This portrait was just one of many that was looted during World War II. Thankfully, the history of the painting, the subject, and her family have the recognition they deserve. It’s tragic that so many pieces of art and family heirlooms are still lost because of the prejudices and crimes of those that abused their power. Those organizations not only wiped out families, but also sought to destroy any memory of them.

Movies and interviews have been made to show people the history of this famous painting, such as ‘Stealing Klimt’ (2007), and the film ‘Woman in Gold’ (2015) which I both highly recommend.

“Your dad would totally fire me if he walked in on this, you know.”

“And lose the greatest literal babysitter he’s ever hired? I don’t think so.”

“…”

“…”

Adrien…”

Marinette strains her neck to look at Adrien petulantly; he looks over at her and cracks a grin. 

“You’re slipping, Mari!”

As his serious facade melts, Marinette is suddenly acutely aware of how warm he is against her. She’s not sure she likes the feeling as her blood runs cold and her heart clenches. I can’t do this, she reminds herself sourly, and tries to go back to relishing in her friend’s company.

“May I interest you in the New Salem Philanthropic Society?” he mumbled, but he hadn’t expected to be given a response.

Background practice made this take longer than intended oops.

For post 3000, I thought it would be nice to finally finish the bigender comic I’ve been working on since… before I started this blog. So here it is!

Description:

Panel 1: Round smiley face that’s green on the right side and purple on the left. To the right is another face with irregular patches of purple and green. Captions read “Bigender people can feel split in two, or with two genders all mixed together”.

Panel 2: Face colored a blend of green and purple. To the right is another face with rectangular patches of green, purple, and the blend. Below are two faces, one with purple filling the lower third of the left side and green on the right side, and one that is mostly green with purple at the top. Captions read “The genders can be almost indistinguishable, or feel like they correspond to different mindsets, or be different strengths”

Panel 3: Purple face with an arrow pointing to a green face on the right. To the right is a face with purple filling the lower third of the left side and green on the right side. Below is a sequence of three faces directed with arrows: the first face is mostly green with purple at the top, the second face is mostly purple with green at the bottom, and the third face is mostly white with purple on the left and green on the right at the bottom. Captions read “Bigender people can switch between genders, or have a completely static gender, or have the strength of the genders change”

Panel 4: “The genders can be female, male, agender, polygender, or whatever else the person feel fits each part. What all bigender people have in common is they are TWO genders. Not just one or another; BOTH”. Gender signs are above each corresponding gender identity.

Panel 5: Bigender people can use any pronouns. Above is a speech bubble with many pronoun sets in different fonts.

Panel 6: A green stick figure with a face that is partially purple on the left and green on the right. To the right are two stick figures with a double-ended arrow between them, one green and one purple, each with a face that is purple on the left and green on the right. Captions read “A bigender person may choose to present as one gender, or switch back and forth”

Panel 7: Two stick figures, one green and purple, the other pink. Each has a face that is mostly purple with green on the bottom. Captions read “or present as a mixture, or something else entirely. But remember: Gender =/= Presentation, and they are always still bigender”

My Teepublic - My Redbubble - Commission Info

Made some fun magic items which’ll be in my homebrew campaign later once it starts, some based on jokes or puns, but all usable! Well, maybe not the egg completely since the last result is heavily based on things in my own campaign, but discounting that you could use these if you’d like~

Okay I fucking hate making call out posts but this has gone too far now. There is an instagram account that has reblogged hundreds of edits and art that doesnt belong to them.

This instagram account is Antimystical.

DO NOT HARASS THEM!

I wouldn’t have even known about this account at all but a friend of mine told me that one of my tweets from the egos posts had been reposted. Now I dont post them on instagram. My tweet edits stay on tumblr as well as my gifs and my art goes on my tumblr, deviantart, twitter and instagram.

They posted it with the caption credit to septicstacheedits. Like that is not acceptable but they didnt even ask either which is even worse. Anyway I messaged them at 3pm GMT to delete the post and im just waiting for a reply.

As i was going through their instagram, i saw very familar art styles. A lot of the artists also post that same art on instagram and most of the art hasn’t been credited. There are a bunch of edits as well especially from my friends that have been posted and if its like me, they aren’t aware.

Im going to try and tag everyone whose art and edits ive seen posted but unfortunately theey aren’t crediting people properly, if at all so i am really sorry if your art is there and i haven’t let you know, i cant recognise everyones art style and rn i really wish I could.

IF YOUR ART/EDIT IS ON THERE, TELL THEM TO REMOVE IT BUT DO NOT HARASS THEM ABOUT IT. I DO NOT WANT THIS TO BE A WITCH HUNT.
