like kickass

white women are always like “more strong kickass female leads!” and when i say i want to see a black female love interest who is allowed to be girly and fall in love they give me weird looks and say that i’m supporting gender stereotypes and heteronormativity but what a lot of white women don’t get is that black women we’ve had hundreds of years of having our femininity ripped from us, of being deemed unworthy of male (especially non-black male) attention. black women in media are never allowed to be the “cute” ones or the love interest, we’ve always been the “strong kickass street smart woman” trope that white women want so badly. so basically if a black girl says she wants to see another black girl fulfill the role of “love interest” there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that and it isn’t a hindrance to feminism

Finally getting the hang of drawing my A.I.s robot body designs.

Ok maybe I'm just Stupid™ and this is just a Stupid Question™ but in your rhino painting you put down some blue lines for outlining the rhino and for the background, but then they were white! Um, how??? Can you please explain this wizardry to my poor peasant brain?

YES that’s masking fluid! 

Masking fluid is, essentially, liquid rubber. It adheres to the paper and protects an area from watercolour. When the paint dries, you simply remove it. There are different types of masking fluid, like the ones you apply with a brush. But if you’re like me and want to cut the crap with RUINING BRUSHES: look no further. I exclusively use Molotow masking liquid pens now.

You don’t need sacrificial brushes. It’s tinted blue so you can see where the hell it is. The future is here.

Rolls on like a kickass pen

Let it dry, slap on your watercolour

Coax it off with an eraser

Bam look at that. Perfect for those details you want to stay white. Not recommended for application over large areas. Available on Amazon.

Happy painting! 🍺

As A Woman, Watching ‘Wonder Woman’ Served As A Beautiful Reminder That I Could Probably Kill Someone With A Sword

In the days since I saw Wonder Woman, I’ve had a lot to reflect on. The movie not only smashed box office earning records and featured a female director, but it also showed a powerful representation of a strong, confident female superhero kicking ass on-screen. As a woman, watching Wonder Woman was a transformative experience that I’ll never forget, because it served as a powerful reminder that I could probably kill someone with a sword.

As I left the theater, my eyes were opened to a totally new possibility: I could maybe someday stab and kill a person with a sword if I ever wanted to, and the fact that I was a woman wasn’t going to stop me.

When I saw Wonder Woman in full armor emerging from the trenches on a battlefield and killing Germans with her sword, I knew this movie would be different than any other movie I had seen before. As a woman, seeing a powerful feminine figure command the screen and shove her weapon deep within another human made me think about how swords actually don’t look that hard to use, and I could probably stab or slice someone to death, no problem. With the help of a fully fleshed-out, inspiring female character, I learned something very transformative about myself and my ability to harness the power of the blade that I, somewhere in my life living as a woman, had sadly forgotten. “I could… probably do some damage with a sword?” I thought to myself upon leaving the theater. “I could at least at least hack someone up pretty bad, if not outright kill them. Yeah?”

Yeah!

While Wonder Woman fought and stabbed her way through battle after battle, my eyes filled with tears. It finally hit me: I, a female, could buy a sword and kill someone with it, and that was a choice I could make. If I picked a random person on the street and just sort of swung that thing around, just like the totally kickass Wonder Woman showed me, I could probably hurt them pretty bad, if not murder them outright. These are thoughts I never had while watching a film in recent memory, and a thought that I hope empowers women everywhere.

Yes, I’ve seen men kill with swords in movies all the time, but when I looked in the mirror, I never saw Superman or Batman staring back. Now when I look in the mirror, I see myself, a proud woman holding a samurai sword looking kind of confused about how to hold it but also pretty sure she could figure it out if the urge to kill ever hit her hard enough. I wish I had this movie when I was a kid. If I had known at 10 that I could probably kill someone with a sword, where would I be today? I probably would not have killed anyone, for what it’s worth, but to know I could? That would have been priceless.

For me personally, Wonder Woman was a powerful reminder that I could stab someone with a sword. I spent my entire life not even thinking that this was a possibility, but now, thanks to this movie, I’ll never stop thinking about it. So, as a woman, I encourage every woman to see it and know that you could also probably kill with a sword. All you have to do is believe.

Beauty and the Beast ~ Shallura

Let’s be real, we’ve got the headstrong, hot-headed princess Allura in a long abandoned and forgotten castle with no one but Coran to keep her company. I couldn’t just not make Allura the beast. I wanted to make Coran all the pieces of furniture but finally decided to put his mustache to good use. And obviously Shiro’s gotta be the beauty fresh from the Galra gladiator ring.

fuck like… there was a female superhero-led movie that actually showed a complex and dynamic, not overly sexualised woman. hell, women. lots of kickass amazing diverse women. and now we’re getting a whole movie of mostly black characters next year with an entire guard force made up of awesome kickass women. like i know there’s a long ass way to go towards equal representation but jfc am i emotional over this!! honestly this would never have happened back when i was growing up but now kids these days get to go to the cinema and see this shit and it’s so wonderful i want to cry

DRAG QUEEN DRACO MALFOY

draco in drag popped in my head and it’s hILARIOUS

  • draco in hEELS
  • draco becoming extra sassy
  • HIS DEATH DROPS
  • on point makeup, draco contours like a kickass bitch
  • *intense strutting*
  • his outfits are peacock inspired oml (he’d use feather boas)
  • IT’S MAGICAL
  • crabbe and goyle admire him
  • lip syncing to vogue (because he loves the choreo)
  • His name is LaTwinka a la Hoe
  • he honestly intimidates people because he seems so fierce and powerful on stage
  • has secret shows at Hogsmeade

There are only three days a year on which Lucas Sinclair wakes up even earlier than usual: Christmas, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day. The latter two involve sneaking quietly into the kitchen to prepare fluffy buttermilk pancakes for breakfast in bed. After that, Father’s Day consists of driving out to the amusement park and accompanying his dad on all the biggest, faster roller coasters. Over dinner, Lucas asks his father to recount stories from his past: his days in college studying physics, meeting his mother at the theatre, training for the army, his past playing in a jazz band. They’re stories Lucas has heard dozens of times, but he knows his father loves telling them. And he loves hearing them.

Shallura, 30, in your Watch Me, Lovely series (if possible) - Allura cuddling him to get Shiro used to contact and so he'll calm down

You have no idea how excited I was to see this prompt. Watch Me, Lovely has a pretty tight timeline within the fanfic so anywhere I put it was going to spoil it a little bit, but I think this should be… minimally spoilery?

If you want to know what series Boss is referencing, go here and read it. :)

Prompt fill for the lovely @bosstoaster. Hope you enjoy!!!


He didn’t want to stay in her room.

Shiro hadn’t said that of course, but Allura liked to think she wasn’t totally oblivious to other people’s feelings. They’d discussed having him sleep in her room to maximize what little time they had to prepare for the council meeting. They had an entire Keth to build together (well, fake together, but Allura couldn’t help but hope that maybe…). Shiro and Allura had contact to adjust to, closeness to get comfortable with. Shiro had accepted the idea without argument, and while a part of Allura wanted to believe it was because he felt something for her, she knew it was the exact opposite.

From the beginning Allura had suspected he was saying yes to the whole thing out of obligation. It would be just like him, after all.

Dedicated to Lola

What goddess do I petition to make the “polyamorous family” line actually be a prediction for how the main casts relationships over the season develop though ……

So I’m in university and I’ve started reading the Dresden Files for the bus rides and I’ve reached the point where I just want to quit school and spend my days reading the Dresden files because I still have 11 novels and a few Side stories to read.

It’s interesting to me, how this album is like… a package of all of who Harry is. On the surface, this album is The Rockstar, all this excess and references to so much of the rockstar lifestyle. But there’s depth and meaning behind that shiny package for anyone who cares to look. 

Still, just speaking aesthetically, this album is so kickass. Like, we’re used to breaking everything down and analyzing it to within a millimeter of death, but you can honestly sit back and jam to this album without having to do that if you don’t want to, and that’s just really fucking great imo.
