good suggestion, thank you! i forgot i commented on her design earlier. this isnt 100% bc i tend to draw instinctively but this is more what i would enjoy from this character (which would also need to be changed presentation-wise)
i think her grief and sadness over pink diamond’s death shouldve been saved for a later, more built up review. starting a character off immediately sympathising her when it’s already establish this is a dictator and an enemy doesnt really come off v well to me.
i muted her colours a lot, bc i enjoy the idea of BD being washed out and miserable and that translating into her design. her eyes are smaller and i tried to make her face shape a little more distinct. i also imagine her hair being really flowly, and doing the ghibli thing when she’s angry bc how sick and awesome and intimidating would that be man…
In what was likely one of the most unexpected surprises in the life of architecture critic Oliver Wainwright, his trip to North Korea revealed a variety of spaces with an eerie resemblance to Wes Anderson’s carefully curated movie sets. The use of primary colours and muted pastels, as well as a heavy emphasis on symmetry and proportion, evoke the trademark aura of the director’s acclaimed interiors.

OH MY GOD. I found a new fact out about Charles II.
Charles was really….hmmm…not super ostentatious in dress?? He was fashionable but he often chose muted colours or blacks for his clothing. But he absolutely LOVED his Order of the Garter robes and outfit. He loved it so much that, not only did he often wear it in his portraits, but he would often wear it out for one of his strolls in Windsor Great Park or when he went to feed the ducks in St. James’ Park.
Within a few years I’m going to have enough pet peeves to cover a shirt
like the huge text will be “LET CHILDREN”
and then the entire rest of the shirt will be covered with little text in a slightly muted colour, and say things like “daydream - flap their hands - play - fidget - do things differently - listen to music - be touched - refuse to be touched - have food preferences - stim - avoid eye contact - ask for attention"
Like right now the list of things i have GODDAMN SEEN professionals with careers and degrees in childcare and psychology and behavioural science say that they punish children for doing, or only permit them to do as a treat, is extensive, but

Eight weeks. Andrew had been living in his apartment in relative peace and quiet for eight weeks. There had been no unwanted visitors (aside from a curious cousin who was promptly told to leave at knife point). The only noise had been the humming of his refrigerator; the inconsistent leaky tap in his bathroom, and the occasional murmur of his TV. He could smoke in any room at any time of the day or night. If nightmares didn’t dig their claws into him during the night he could sleep until midday without worrying about being woken by a pestering roommate. He could come and go from his apartment at any hour without receiving a menagerie of texts asking where he was or where he was going or if he could pick something up from the grocery store. He could keep his freezer stuffed with ice cream and ban any vegetables from his kitchen. He could eat a birthday cake at 2 in the morning without argument. Eight weeks of complete freedom and his own company.
