My good senpai, i'm sorry if you did say this, but does Fatal's sockets reflect his feelings? I was reading by the 2 time and this got my atention (Sorry for the bad english, it's not my mother lengage)

My good anonymous, that is very true! The color of his eye sockets do reflect how he’s feeling in the moment :)

A good thing about violets: when they grow in big patches, but because they’re so low to the ground and a dark color you don’t notice them right away and suddenly you realize that there’s a bit of deep purple carpet at your feet. Also when the bees go bumbly bumbly on them but they’re too heavy for the stem and they end up almost tipping it over. 

Additional good things about violets: edible, can be sugared and used as decorations on cakes, boiled into a sweet syrup. Can be fermented into a light-pink colored wine. 

Very important good thing about violets: gay. 

Backstory episodes I want now

OiTNB style, let’s start delving

  • how Rhodonite’s ruby and pearl met and decided to run away together
    • how all of Fluorite literally met
  • Lapis during the war
  • whatever Padparadscha was doing before this bc I would 100% watch an episode of just her doing her
  • how gems normally colonize worlds, Peridot as the bureaucrat she was before
  • Bismuth realizing her passion!!! And the war unfolding around her
  • Amethyst interacting with people who wandered by the kindergarten, she had to have run into a few before
  • Rose’s past lovers? (maybe Steven had a few fully human siblings a couple centuries ago that lived and passed)
  • Jasper dealing with the prejudices of Homeworld as she tries to rise in the ranks and deal with her remorse for Pink Diamond
  • Aquamarine being a git somewhere
  • Topaz being in love somewhere, and heartbreak
  • Some sort of Pearl-centric reflection, Blue and Yellow Pearl whispering about our Pearl, Pearl reaching out, Pearl’s interacting; doubt, loyalty, love, backstory

anonymous asked:

i like manga reigen's coloring because it feels more natural but anime reigen's somehow better fits his personality

Honestly both colors fit their respective personalities.

Manga!Reigen is a loooot more toned down. The bombastic antics (that he’s known for in the anime) are reserved for when he’s trying to put on a show, frustrated, or super afraid. Even his Reigen Roast ™ is tame in comparison. He looks more ugly-frustrated with the group’s inability to understand, rather than actively looking to drag them like his anime counter part.

When he’s not doing those motions, the rest of time Manga!Reig is just kind of an apathetic, depressed, regular pathetic, and average kinda guy. Which! fits one of the major themes of mob psycho 100 anyways: Congrats! You’re one of the masses just like everyone else! The brown hair and black tie fit better for this interpretation. Duller colors bring out his more mundane, pensive, wistful side.

Anime!Reigen brings out waaaaaaaaaay more of his showmanship, and this is also a fun angle! For a media based largely in visual movement, this was a great decision. Gold hair for valuing intellect (since hair is above ur brain), gray suit bc he’s morally gray bdum tss, and pink tie to show that he’s got some heart in the midst of it all. These are all very great color choices that showcase other facets of Reigen’s character.

And the anime gives him equal moments to look cool, and to look like a damn fool.

This color design is honestly more memorable and marketable as well. Plus the character designer said they gave him a pink tie since it makes him look more “shady” and I can get behind that.

Congrats this is the end of the rant! Both are good! If some of you were expecting a ‘that’s why this version is better’ conclusion I aint sorry though. They’re just two designs that emphasize different sides of the same character. 

This means for my stuff where I draw somber/weighted things, Manga!Reigen’s colors fit better. But for things that are more energetic and fun, Anime!Reig’s colors are more suited.

Simon Lewis and His Mentor Magnus Bane on portaling.

It’s been ages since I’ve seen someone do this but I was scrolling through old posts and came across this beautiful unfinished gay piece that I forgot had existed. So I tried to complete it or something? They’re a relationship I never considered before but now I’m in love 

Anyway I really love @drawbauchery uwu <3 (Original)
