anonymous asked:

For which reason you think Damen is more Greek? Do you have a Greek man for Damen? Apologize for not knowing, but are Greeks poc? Thank you and excuse me for my bad English. xo

AHi! Your English is fine and it’s not my first language either, so :PPP

Ahhh okay these are all MY perspectives but here we go:

Akielos is fictional so we cannot say it’s based on just one culture, however as a Greek person it’s extremely easy for me to spot Greek names and words. Damianos, Nikandros, Jokaste, Erasmus, Kastor, Theomedes, etc. are all Greek names. Not even modified Greek names - these are their original forms. Akielos as a name sounds Greek as well, though as far as I’m aware it’s made up. It’s been a while since I read the series but the description of the buildings and aesthetics sounded very Greek as well (which is not saying much - Rome’s culture was heavily influenced by the Greek one).

I do have a Greek guy in mind for Damen, and that’s Nikos Anadiotis:

He’s always been my top Greek choice for Damen, but my number one is always Texeira :P

As for Greeks being poc or not, I honestly have no clue. Because as the years go by I realise we are what other people think we are (because race is a social construct etc etc.). In the past I used to only be aware of racism between countries (and we use the word ‘racism’ to talk about pretty much any form of discrimination here, be it racial, religious, gender based, etc.), ie I knew certain peoples don’t like Greeks just because we are Greeks. Racism like that is pretty prevalent in Europe. We have tons of small countries and lots of stereotypes to go with them, and discrimination ensues. For instance, about a year ago one of my friends went to study in Switzerland, and when he was about to rent a flat, his roommates refused to stay with him solely because he was Greek (and the trendy thing about us right now is that we all irresponsibly lazy/dirt poor/idiots with money/the laughingstock of the continent etc). However I am not on topic. I’m just saying I used to think whenever Greeks faced discrimination it was because of us being Greek, not because of us being poc.

[rest under a cut cause this is getting long] [edit: i found an old ask about this topic and i skimmed it and i think i still believe most of what i said there, as well   - also HERE is a post from a Lebanese/Australian person explaining how race is constructed there]

MBTI and Big Five

Hi! Lately, I came across the Big Five (or Global 5) personality model. I found that they also made a system of 32 personality types. The test is here. It will tell you what your type is and also what your dominant trait is.

Please, could you add your MBTI type, Global 5 type and the dominant trait right here? I would really like to know if there are any correlations (I personally have some theories.) Thanks a lot!

Watch on toasty-coconut.tumblr.com

HOLY SHIT I FOUND IT OH MY GOD. OKAY SO THIS EPISODE OF POKEMON WAS AIRED IN AMERICA BEFORE IT’S AIRING IN JAPAN. IT’S THE FIRST EPISODE OF ADVANCE GENERATION TO USE NEW VOICE ACTORS. THEY ESSENTIALLY USED IT AS A TEST RUN FOR THE NEW ENGLISH VAS.

BUT THE ORIGINAL TV BROADCASTING OF THE EPISODE WAS SO BAD AND THE FANS REACTED TO IT SO NEGATIVELY THAT THEY HAD TO ENTIRELY REDUB IT FOR THE FUTURE DVD RELEASE. IN FACT, FANS DISLIKED ASH’S NEW VOICE SO MUCH THAT THEY HAD TO HIRE A NEW ACTRESS AND COMPLETELY DO HIM OVER IN THE REDUB. THE ACTING WAS SO TERRIBLE THAT THIS VERSION OF THE SPECIAL WAS ONLY EVER SHOWN ONCE DURING ITS ORIGINAL BROADCAST ON KIDS WB IN 2006.

DON’T BELIEVE ME? THERE ARE ARTICLES WRITTEN ABOUT THIS ON BULBAPEDIA. IF YOU STILL DON’T BELIEVE ME YOU CAN EVEN WATCH THE DVD REDUB HERE.

BUT THE ORIGINAL DUB IS SO FUNNY BECAUSE THE ACTING IS SO BAD IN COMPARISON TO 4KIDS WORK, EVEN IN COMPARISON TO THE REDUB THAT I GET A KICK OUT OF IT EVERY TIME I SEE IT. YOU SHOULD ALL WATCH AND COMPAIRE THE TWO DUBS WITH EACH OTHER BECAUSE ITS HELLA FUN. SO SIT BACK, ENJOY AND LET HILARITY ENSUE.

I really love your art >///<Your style is so beautiful!! I'm just a beginner, and I am lost in relation to anatomy. I try to make gesture drawings but does not work out. Could you give me some tips on how to really start training anatomy? Thank you, have a great day^^ /sorry for my bad english hehe/

hello anon! thank you so much, i appreciate it a ton :) anatomy is a very difficult thing to draw, i hope you know that. It’s probably one of the hardest things out there in the ‘art world’ (pfft what is this, harry potter?). So please don’t get frustrated if things arent looking right the first time, it happens to everyone and even to artists who have been drawing for years. First we need to look at the whole body proportions before we get started.

heres a rough idea, excuse the terrible sketch haha. Keep in mind its all approximate, every body is different.

so now that we know the proportions, we can move on to gesture drawings!

I started this comic on Saturday and because of time zones I wanted to be able to publish it before the episode (and I have who can testify that I realized it during the promo “Sleepover”).
P.S. I have not seen the episode yet, I’ll see him soon ~

Meanwhile, here is my silly theory! HOPE IT WILL HAPPEN!

p.s. sorry for my bad english and my quickly drawing! I’m pretty sure that I forgot something color or make some mistake ;-; 

Enjoy~

Hi. Long time no see.
First of all, I am not good at English so I’m using translation machine.
Please understand my poor English.

I have bad news.

I wasn’t active as much as before because of these kinds of people.
Over the past few months, I have been under a lot of stress due to too many unauthorized use/reposts.

Is this really what you want?
Is it correct that you want me to understand and watch my pictures being used without my permission?

I can’t understand and I won’t understand.
There are some good people, but there are some people who act like this, so it’s hard for me to continue drawing.

If you can’t find the artist, don’t use it.
Is it that hard?
It’s damn easy.

When the artist asks for pictures to be removed,
Delete the picture.
Is this really that hard?

I really thought meet the nice people on tumblr.
But I guess I was wrong.

Of course there are good people. I know that.
But there are so many people without basic concept and manner which makes me weary and tired.

DO NOT upload my pictures to other sites.
DO NOT edit my artwork.
DO NOT use my artwork for roleplaying.

Even if I uploaded my artworks online, it is not right thing to re-post and use it without permission.
As it is wrong for people to rob your house even if you posted your home address online.

Please stop this. Not just me, but to other people as well.

I will come back with good news next time.
Please, please, don’t make me stop wanting to draw.

i am sorry for my bad handwriting

[pardon the graphic because I’m bad at graphics and I’m in a rush dealing with The Academic stuff, but I wanted to post this ASAP]

this is mostly applicable to classes based on lectures/powerpoints, etc. for classes like english that are writing, or participation- and discussion-based classes, i use different methods. note: this masterpost places heavy emphasis on how to study for tests, although it also covers classwork and notes.

oh my god

so i went out to subway for lunch, and just happened to run into my 12 year old brother and a group of his friends.

Now, this wouldn’t be so bad, if it weren’t for the fact that:

1. they were skipping school

2. he was ordering nine cookies

3. HE WAS PRETENDING HE DIDN’T SPEAK ENGLISH AND WAS GRUNTING AND POINTING AT THE COOKIES, OCCASIONALLY PIPING IN WITH A COMMENT IN A WEIRD ACCENT WHILE HIS FRIENDS WATCHED AND GIGGLED

When he noticed me standing there he just froze in horror before whispering “don’t tell mom”

Official Kurobas novel - Replace V : Stopping on the way

Spoiler alert!!!
Some brief idea of “Replace V : Stopping on the way”.
The story of Nijimura met Himuro in LA.
Both English & Japanese aren’t my mother language, sorry if there are incorrect information and mistakes! I just try to express the brief idea what the story told.
Written by a Himuro crusher ((((((



  • Nijimura claims that he never saw such a beautiful hero before. (HOLY JFC)
  • Nijimura was new to L.A, and was having some trouble. Himuro helps him out by punching some bad guys.
  • Nijimura expresses that :
    That guy probably is Asian (by his black hair color),
    but his skin color looks snowy white, maybe he also a Japanese.
    And he is tall, about his height that’s 1.8 sth.
    He has a slender body shape but not looking weak at all.
    Besides, the most impressive part is, his face.
    Decently beautifully framed.
    (…Nijimura are you okay? O« … and I’m not ok asdggh)
    Every part of his exquisite face looks so beautiful and delicate. (OMG…)
    The side bangs that covers his left eye replenishing a slight mystertic mood for him.
    With a slight smile on his decent handsome face, I guess most of the people will be gasped and speechless by seeing it.
  • Nijimura thinks this guy (Himuro) is as handsome as Kise.
  • Himuro looks back and smiles at Nijimura.
  • Himuro then punched that 2 meter tall strong bad guy with his bare fist, although he got a bishie face which tender like “never have a gut to kill any tiny bugs”
  • The guy fail unconscious.
  • This Beautiful… NO, Chaotic villainous guy runs by, grabbed my wrist, yelling “Run!!” & pulling me out of the basketball court. Everything runs like a movie.
  • Himuro is 15 years old that time. (Same as Nijimura)
  • Niji: “Really? Your calmness doesn’t reflecting your age. ”
  • Himuro: “You look mature too, Nijimura kun.”
  • Being called “Nijimura” by Himuro, Nijimura don’t know why but blushed a bit.
  • He even added “kun” after the surname, does he trying to being friendly to me?
  • Niji: “Well, calling my name is fine. Is it okay if I call you ‘Tatsuya’?”
  • Himuro: “Got it. I call you ‘Shuu’ then.”
  • Me, Nijimura Shuuzou and him, Himuro Tatsuya looked at each others face, and smiled together.

  • Then Himuro brings Nijimura to his basketball club, they talk a while.
  • Himuro introduced Alex as his basketball teacher.
  • Nijimura arrived L.A the next day after graduated from Teiko, because of his father’s treatment.
  • The bonding between Nijimura and his father is deep.
  • The predicted time of this story should be March.
  • Nijimura is the biggest brother in the family. He got a younger brother and sister. They’ve already moved to L.A at December.
  • He is weak at flights.
  • Nijimura wanted to visit his dad who stays at hospital, with so many stopping on the way. He lost his way and his phone was broken.
  • He end up playing street basketball (?) with a kid called Mike who invites him to join. Then they met that bad guy stated before.
  • Anyway, they then heard that Mike was kidnapped by the same gang of that bad guy.
  • From some chats Nijimura knows that Himuro somewhat get along with some people from underworld. That surprised him.
  • Nijimura and Himuro started the rescue. Succeed.
  • Both of them together punching and beating so many people (…)
  • They both seems experienced and good at fighting. Nijimura knows about warehouses pretty well. Himuro was curious about these but Nijimura kinda refrain from telling more about it.

  • After the rescue, Nijimura started some more self-disclosure talk with Himuro, about the story of himself and his father.
  • Nijimura was a furyo (“rascal”?) when he was even younger. But his father saved him. After that happened a short while, his father became very sick.
  • The two guys friendship grew even stronger after facing those adventures and personal talks.
  • Himuro held Nijimura’s hand, blessing his father getting well soon, this gentleness and kindness making Nijimura feels a bit embarrassed.
  • They promised to play 1 on 1 someday, after Nijimura has settled everything.
  • Alex came by and scolded at them. They seems facing even more “stopping on the way”…

MUROCHIN IS SO SEME(?) AND COOL ALONG THE WHOLE WAY.
I MEAN IT.

Some days
All I need is for my eyeliner to be catlike, pitch black.
An encore of fierceness that will precede me all day
And then nothing else will touch me.

Too often it takes one smudge to break me.
I am loosing touch with the present;
Yesterday my English teacher had to call my name 5 times
Before I realised who she was talking to.

I’ve started taking long walks alone at night
Just so I don’t have to think for a few hours.
But these walks are getting longer and I’m slowly forgetting
How to go back to being me when I arrive home.

Maybe I just need perfect makeup
Or perhaps the mask runs deeper than the surface of my skin.
Either way, I woke up alone this morning
And I think I’m getting bad again.

Levi and Petra's Relationship *SPOILERS*

This is going to be a long post that is based on my opinion and observations. I have bad english so please bare with me. To be honest, I haven’t paid much attention on Petra before Episode 22, but Episode 22 made me think of Levi and Petra’s relationship bc there are a lot of hints and details. 

First of all, Petra is one of the people that are handpicked by Levi. She has the highest number of titan kills from the rest of her squad.

Petra has a total of 58 titan kills. However, Levi is always assigning Petra tasks away from the titans (Ep 9)

Also (Ep 18),

Then we have this scene of Petra alone with Levi. Petra seemed so happy.

And the famous scene of Squad Levi’s deaths :c

See how Levi stopped to see Petra but not the others? He stopped to grief at her death. His squad’s deaths affected him, but Petra’s affected him the most.

Then we have this scene (Ep 22) where Levi took Petra’s badge. If Petra was nothing more than his comrade then why did he took her’s instead of the others?

How can I be sure thats’ Petra’s badge? In the scene where Petra tells Eren to have faith in them (Ep 19), you can see her bitten hand.

Also, if you slow motion the SNK Opening 2, you can see Petra’s bitten hand. Click here to see the video

Also on Episode 22, Levi told the soldiers to abandon the bodies because the bodies are making their cart heavy. One of the bodies that were abandon was Petra’s. 

THIS HIT ME RIGHT IN THE FEELS. LOOK AT HIS FACE. YOU CAN SEE THAT HE’S HURT.

Still on Episode 22, Levi gave Petra’s badge to the soldier to comfort him by saying that it’s Ivan’s badge. Poor baby, no one should say Levi is heartless!!

Look at how he’s looking at the badge :((

LAST, the scene with Levi and Petra’s father (Ep 22)

Ok so why did Petra’s father told Levi that “it’s too early for her to marry”? What does this have to do with Levi?

“Auruo was always trying imitate Levi which disgusted Petra saying they’re nothing alike with Auruo replying she’s acting as if she is his wife.”

This made me think that Auruo is imitating Levi on Petra being his wife.

I do know that in the manga, what Petra’s father told Levi is a bit different. Maybe it’s the translation, or maybe the animators decided to changed it.

So I think there was something going on between Levi and Petra. We all know that Petra really respects Levi and (might) be in love with him. As for Levi, he did care for Petra more than he cares for the rest of his squad.

Extra!!

Isayama Hajime, the creator of SnK, also creates an SnK spoof, called “Sungeki no Kyojin”. This proves that Petra did have feelings for Levi,

Awh, poor Auruo! But yeah, this shows that Petra loves Levi?

Hahaha “nicely-shaped” carrots!

Oh Petra. Imitating Levi like it’s no big deal. Look at how the others (except Hanji lol) are afraid of laughing!

As most of my followers will have noticed, recently I’ve been completely obsessed by the wonderful webcomic The Property of Hate, by the awesome modmad. Since I’m completely mad, I translated the first page into gallifreyan. I didn’t translate the name of the comic because I wanted to keep that in its original English. After all, in places like the land RGB takes Hero, names have power.

You can read the comic in English here and here.

Artist diary #1

Hello everyone, how are you doing?

It’s me, Dongsaeng. It’s been some time since I wrote something in here. I’m really sorry about it. I should have done it before! I hope you weren’t worried about me because I’ve been doing fine.

I would also like to apologize in advance for my rusty English. It’s been too long since I wrote a large text in English, so it’s probably worse than it was before (and it was already really bad). I hope you can understand the most of this “Artist diary” entry though. 

First of all, some of you have written me asking about Gaysome and asking me when will I start drawing the comic again. Well, the thing is I still don’t know. At the moment I’m balancing my real life work with my work for SHC and my personal life, and somehow I just can’t find the right moment to start drawing comics again. However, I’m not abandoning Gaysome. Not at all! I’ll eventually return to it. I’m actually writing some ideas for new strips, and I have started sketching some of them too. So, it will be sooner than later, I promise. Just can’t tell exactly when. But I’d like to thank you all for showing so much interest on it. It makes me really happy.

Now, I would like to talk about Super Health Club. I’m glad to tell you all that almost the entire art for the game is already sketched (still missing a few scenes here and there). Right now I’m working on the final art (clean lineart and colouring for each background, scene, etc). Actually, all the backgrounds are almost finished. I’m not a professional background painter, however, and this is my first time doing such a job, but I can tell that I’m giving it my best and that I hope you like how the backgrounds will look once they’re finished. Here’s a little detail of one of them (remember, it’s work in progress! hehe.)

For the scenes, there are a lot of them. And not all of them are sexual scenes, I must say. Some of them are about the personal story of each character. Here’s a detail of one of my favourite sketches (I hope I don’t get in trouble for showing this):

I’m also working (still) in the character sprites. I’m not totally happy with them, and as I always said, they were a work in progress. I’m working on improving the lines (some of them are too thick), the colours and details or flaws I’m detecting as time goes by. Here’s an example of Thomas, who is going through some changes recently. I felt his head was too static, so I have redrawn it making it a little more dinamic. 

Do you see improvement on Thomas or you liked the old version more? I would like to know your opinion :). I’ll probably do some minor changes like this one on the other characters too (not always on the head, but maybe on other parts of their bodies.)

Lastly, I would like to thank everyone who have preordered the game. To be honest, the number of people who did it surprised me. I’ll try my best to make the final art for the game as good as I can so I don’t disappoint you all. Thank you so much for your support. 

See you soon!

I do not want to be a “bad girl”. I will never smoke, or drink in excess or before I am of age, or do drugs. I will not give away my virginity before I am married. But there is one thing I will do. I will challenge the assumption that innocent is synonymous with naïve. I will challenge anyone who thinks that I cannot be kind and fierce at the same time.

im so tired i just want to read fic about percy and annabeth hanging out at high school and intimidating the shit out of everyone who doesnt know them with their physical attractiveness and aura of confidence and resting bitch faces, when really theyre both just pissed off at the amount of reading they have to do for english and probably also the fact that they had to kill a monster before school that morning and it made them a little late. 

percy and annabeth cramming for assignments and sleeping in on weekends and having a million inside jokes that their mortal friends dont get and like going to a party and annabeth sitting in percys lap and someone takes a cute photo of them and theyre both kind of chuffed by how good they look in it and their friends all laugh because theyre such dorks. 

game nights with the seven and campfires at chb when they can get away, but always coming back to sally and paul and percys little sister and feeling like theyre on the right track.

i just want to read about percy and annabeth being happy teens where is this fic please
