it's the accessories that make the difference

anonymous asked:

Just curious; how do you make your sprites? I want to do some for a fan session

for sprites 8ased off canon ones: i get the 8ase sprite, i open paint.net, i draw over the sprite. done.

for fan characters: open up a sprite sheet (usually this one 8c i have it downloaded).
pick an outfit. pick hair, then eyes and mouth. horns if its a troll. accessories optional.
just slap it all onto each other, doesnt really matter if the face is arranged in the ~correct canon proportions~ 8c hey, news flash, different people have different faces.
at this point most people consider the sprite done, 8ut nope - i use this as a 8ase that i then draw over in my sprite style
and then its done.

LIGHT

Clarity.
Bright light.
Cancels darkness.
Of a moonless night.

Light spot.
As the lighthouse.
For the sailors.
It is a reference point.

When the situation is not clear.
There is great risk of error,
For decisions to be taken.
Even more carefully.

Light is life.
Is heard from before.
And it’s true.
With light everything is easier.

instinctively,
All seek light
For its accomplishment
and also success.

Light,
Light spot,
Simple light,
It makes all the difference.

The stupidity I deal with on a daily basis
  • Me: Hi, how are you?
  • Customer (old dude): I want to speak to one of the men.
  • Me: I'm afraid they're all busy at the moment. Was there something I could help you with?
  • Customer: You wouldn't know anything about cars, young lady
  • (Given the fact I'm a senior associate in a car accessories/parts store, I'd have to know a fair bit)
  • Me: Well I can certainly try to help you *cheery
  • Customer: I want a battery for my van
  • Me: OK not a problem. What make and model was your van?
  • Customer: It is a van
  • Me: Yes I understand that but I need to know the make and model because I have lots of different batteries for vans.
  • Customer: ITS A VAN SILLY GIRL
  • Me (not fussed because I get this quite regularly): If you bring the van to the front of the store, I can take a look at it for you and we can look up the battery then.
  • Customer: *yelling THIS IS WHY I WANTED TO SPEAK TO A MAN. YOU FEMALES KNOW NOTHING ABOUT CARS.
  • At this point my manager has finished with his customer and has overheard the yelling so he walks over.
  • Manager: Can I help you at all today Sir?
  • Customer: I need a battery for my van and this stupid girl can't tell me which one I need.
  • Manager: Ok sir, what make and model was the van?
  • Customer: OH YOU ARE ALL HOPELESS *walks out
  • Manager: What's his deal?
  • You tell me I don't know anything about cars yet you can't even list the make. Vans is not that hard either. Normally it's a Toyota, Hyundai or Volkswagen but they're different batteries for each make anyway.
evangelion//autocritique

If Evangelion 1.11 and 2.22 are about revision, then Evangelion 3.33 turns its eye toward critique. 1.11 and 2.22 celebrate the series and strengthen its central character. 3.33 leaps forward fourteen years, and in this new status quo, The surviving Eva pilots—all women, save for Shinji—are trapped in adolescence, in the exact form you could purchase from your friendly neighborhood bishoujo statue dealer. In the interim, Asuka has taken to wearing a track jacket and an eyepatch, which recalls Eye Bandage Ayanami. The difference is that Asuka’s accessory is a yandere one, while Rei’s bandages were meant to make you feel like your little sister needs your help and yours alone.

The eyepatch is a toyetic change, which speaks to the subtext of the film. Shinji is a boy out of time, confused by the new context he’s forced to relive. His father Gendo and Gendo’s assistant are both set in their ways, determined to see their plans through no matter the consequences, with a Rei Ayanami as their tool. Misato and Ritsuko have turned against NERV, with Asuka Langley and Mari Makinami firmly on their side.

Evangelion 3.33: You Can (Not) Redo is about the men who are determined to have things their way, the women who would do anything to escape the story that has preserved them in resin for years, and the boy who stubbornly resists them because he doesn’t understand how what he knows to be true could ever be wrong, since the pain he’s familiar with is more comforting than the confusion that’s new to him.
