Aaah, the Lethifold! One of my favourite creatures from reading the book as a child. Thanks to @zinfandelli for suggesting it as a creature, I was psyched to draw Credence with one. (And of course I saw the official design on the bluray just as I was about to start colouring, and had to change up a bunch of stuff from my sketch haha) Art blog: questionartbox
Tumblrmom, are there any cryptids or faeries or anything that steal your gadgets and whatnots? Because my son's tablet is missing from my room, and so is my phone even though I knew where it was 20 minutes ago and now it's NOWHERE. Please advise on how to appease these spirits/whatevers, so I can get our shit back.
Absolutely, if they haven’t been returned by now I’d be tempted to stand in the middle of the room and announce very loudly “I’m done fucking around, these things better reappear or else”
I felt like doing a “what’s in my bag” post, so here it is :)) This is just the stuff I normally bring on Thursdays. The first pic is the stuff in the front pocket, my wallet, mints, lighter, usb, house key, receipts, $2.30, a spinny thing that my little brother made me, and the lid to a watercolour brush. The second photo is proper school stuff, my design assessment instructions, chemistry workbook, calculus and chemistry books, and normally the ionic table and solubility chart are in my chem book. The third pic is obviously just my stationery, pencil case, my only pencil, ¾ of a yard stick, scissors and gluestick, calculator, and a measuring tape that’s in there for Wednesdays. The fourth pic is stuff that isn’t really school related, my bullet journal, an easter egg from my tutor teacher, pile of rubbish paper, umbrella (for that sick cyclone we had yesterday!) and then my “party pouch” which has stuff that I feel I might need one day.
Is Barry secretly some sort of programming genius? I mean, he's supposed to invent Gideon at some point, and he's been shown writing algorithms to find villains (although not sure if Earth 2 Barry counts since he has a PhD and Earth 1 Barry might not? Was that ever clarified?). Wish they'd show this skill of his more often if he's on that level.
Well, “programming genius” would be an exaggeration from what we’ve seen so far, but it’s likely he has some computer programming skills and he definitely is very intelligent.
But it’s hard on a show / in a universe with a bunch of super-geniuses to discuss IQ and intellect (especially because how these shows seem to build up intellect, particularly a narrow subset of what counts as ‘smart’, which can be pretty ableist).
Because look, we’ve got… Eobard, Cisco, Harry, Ray, Stein, Jax (yes, absolutely Jax, the dude taught himself to fix space ships)… all who demonstrate what probably counts as supergenius-level abilities. And we’ve got people like Caitlin and Leonard and Rip and Felicity who are all going to be in the genius level (at least), or so I would argue.
Oh and Jesse? Isn’t she as smart as her dad? Andddd Hartley, right, him too, right up there with the other supergeniuses.
What I’m saying is this universe has a genius issue. (Note that “genius” =/= “good decision making skills”).
And then we’ve got other characters, who are many not as “smart” as those ones, but are probably up there in terms of more general metrics or comparisons to the population. Wally, for instance, what with Wally’s designs for school and engineering stuff, and Iris is a gifted writer and investigator within her journalism, which is an intellectually demanding craft, especially at the level she’s working at. Hell, since we’re looking at Arrow, you’ve got Laurel as a DA as well, and its not exactly easy to get into that career. And Nate on Legends has a PhD, right? Which doesn’t make someone a genius but it’s implied, given how he’s the “only one” who figured out about history and the Legends. And though the show jokes about Joe needing the science explained, he’s described as a damn good detective on more than one occasion and likely has an above-average intelligence level.
Anyway, sorry I’m rambling. Everyone on DC CWTV has above average intelligence, and if we were to look at their IQs, the mean IQ of main characters across the shows would probably be like 145 and the median would probably be like 130.
Which leaves us with Barry. Barry being a forensic analyst by the age of ~23 and having a master’s degree most likely (but no, not a PhD on Earth 1). He’s implied to be quite good at that job too, judging from the fact that Patty had read his reports and complimented them. Barry who was working on the speed equation and working on other algorithms, who pulls moves like jumping off the roof of STAR Labs with Zoom because he reasoned on the fly that as they’re falling, Zoom’s speed advantage will disappear. Who works out temporal dynamics seemingly without much issue and his hero, back before the accelerator blew, was the scientist Harrison Wells.
So it’s… tough to say. He’s very smart, likely in the gifted range. Could he be working more on the science side of the show and doing more of the programming stuff? Probably yeah. He’s got the background in science to make contributions there, more than we normally see. But at the same time… does that need to happen? Because most of the characters on the show are already doing the science thing. I’d like to see more of his forensics stuff, personally, rather than his programming skills, whatever level they happen to be at.
It’s a toss-up for when/how he’ll invent Gideon, but he can speed-read books and temporarily retain the knowledge from them so he could very well use that trick to design her. He could also yet learn a lot to do with time travel and programming that we haven’t seen yet, or get help from his team to design and build her? It’s really unclear ^^;
I am not selling my art anywhere except society6 (currently) && I have not given anyone permission to sell/reproduce/distribute my art.
So basically aside from the few (like, 6 pcs lol – and that’s just because people wanted me to put them up for sale) prints up on my society6, I make no money off of my art as I only make them purely for my (and the fandom’s) enjoyment.
If you see anyone selling my art, please do not buy from them as they most likely stole it from me and are unfairly making money off of it. Also I would appreciate it if you report them to the proper personnel (if it is at a con or something) or tell me (if you saw it online).
IDK what to feel about this because I’ve been getting a lot of reports about this happening lately so aaaah ;;; I don’t want to upload smaller res art because I want people to be able to look at them properly so I think I should just make the watermarks more visible? I don’t knowww hahaha omg this is all new to me
so uh five years ago when I first played Psychonauts i started writing a pretty extensive fanfiction but I abandoned it after a while and I just started looking through it again and my thoughts went along the lines of “wow, this is pure gold why did I scrap this”
