so, last week i was thinking somebody should write a comic about a shy teen superhero whose powers are fueled directly by her own sense of embarrassment

then i, uh, wrote a ten-page script for it? and wound up kind of liking it a lot?

so consider yourself cordially invited to read issue #1 of my extremely indie superhero comic, and if you wish, you can illustrate it inside your mind, using the power of imagination!



(A teen girl sits on a swivel chair in her bedroom, facing the viewer. She’s got braces and glasses. Her hair is in a messy braid.)

PONNI: Hi! My name is Ponni Murthy. I’m sixteen, and um…

(We zoom out a little. She’s wearing a T-shit that says “The Moon ROCKS!” She’s holding a cane—covered in glow-in-the-dark star stickers—in one hand, and a stuffed animal cat—wearing a sloppily homemade astronaut costume—in the other. Posters cover the walls: fantasy movies, rocket ships, Ada Lovelace, Aamir Khan, Sally Ride, etc. She has multiple posters of the solar system. She gestures dramatically with her cane-hand)

PONNI: I LOVE OUTER SPACE!

(We return to her face. She looks very earnest.)

PONNI: That’s not, uh, directly relevant to the story, I just—I love it, so much.

(She has now taken on a pensive expression)

PONNI: I love a lot of stuff. But I used to feel a little weird about that.

(She is cheerful again)

PONNI: This is the story of how I got over (some of) my shyness, and rescued a gymnasium full of people, using dark powers I only kind of understand!

PONNI: We begin last year…

[author’s note: okay so Dave has been a long time OC of mine, and admittedly, I drew inspiration from Dave Strider in personality and appearance. However, just to make this a bit more fun, you readers can also picture David Pennington as looking like Harrison Osterfield ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ]

help me improve my mocs i suck at bionicle and no matter how much parts i buy my mocs dont get better

It’s all about use of color and shape. This is why you sometimes see giant mocs made with TONS of pieces - that aren’t really interesting or impressive.

One thing to keep in mind regarding color - you typically should stick to having 3 colors on a moc, tops. This enables the moc to be more visually unified. Some special cases apply, like using any number of different browns in a single moc seems to work well, depending on how the browns are placed.

You can usually get away with using multiple shades of the same hue, depending on how you use them. 

When coming up with the “core section” of your moc - the most visually interesting area of it - try to find parts that fit each other aesthetically. You may find that some pieces have similar “design schemes”.

Example: 

This motorcycle front panel fits with Nuju Metru’s mask. Both pieces have sloping designs with sharp edges - almost a “low polygonal” look. I used these in my “New Nuju Metru” moc. Not ALL of the parts you’re using have to have similar design schemes, but having a few parts which visually fit each other on different sections of your creation really helps.

The use of CCBS on the shins and knees in Newju helps to make them distinct from the more “greebly” parts of the rest of the body - and visually ties them to the similarly smooth textured shoulders and mask.

Just spend some time and think of ways to use different shapes. It might take longer than you would expect or realize, and some times it takes several iterations of a moc to really get the whole creation to flow the way you want. It probably isn’t all going to come together in one sitting, and it isn’t necessarily easy!

If you feel like taking a moment to look through my Brickshelf, there’s a few mocs of mine - each of them have at least two versions.

Like Niwha Nui here, this version isn’t quite there….

But after I came back to the moc some time later, I was able to see what changes I needed to make so that the body could have a nice visual flow and contour.

Even slight changes can make a significant difference in your designs!

Does Lin have a transformation pose/ sequence? If so, what would it look like? XD I love her!

I suppose something like this! her end pose ideally would be something different though, i just didn’t know what else to make it for the time being. she yells “Miisha, Flipper Time!” to transform.

anonymous asked:

do you know if there are any associations between dionysus and medusa? i got it into my head that there was but i think that had something to do with gorgoneions or something 🤔

(Floor mosaics featuring Dionysos and Medusa from Ephesus, Turkey. Source.)

Here are a few quotes of the Dionysiaca, pulled from Theoi.com alongside the details of the above mosaics (Tumblr keeps flipping them around for no good reason…):

“[Hera urges King Perseus to make war on Dionysos when the god arrives in the kingdom of Argos :] ‘Make war on the Satyroi too: turn towards battling Lyaios the deadly eye of snakehair Medousa, and let me see a new Polydektes made stone …  Kill the array of bull-horned Satyroi , change with the Gorgon’s eye the human countenances of the Bassarides into like images selfmade; with the beauty of the stone copies adorn your streets, and make statues like an artist for the Inakhian  market-places.’ . . .

Perseus of the sickle was champion of the Argives; he fitted his feet into the flying shoes, and he lifted up the head of Medousa which no eyes may see.  But Iobakkhos  marshalled his women with flowing locks, and Satyroi with horns. Wild for battle he was when he saw the winged champion coursing through the air. The thyrsos was held up in his hand, and to defend his face he carried a diamond, the gem made stone in the showers of Zeus which protects against the stony glare of Medousa, that the baleful light of that destroying face may do him no harm.”
- Nonnus, Dionysiaca (47. 478.)

“Persus shook in his hand the deadly face of Medousa , and turned armed Ariadne into stone. Bakkhos was even more furious when he saw his bride all stone…”
- Nonnus, Dionysiaca (47. 665)

(Apotropaic amulet featuring the Gorgoneion on one side, with Hekate Triformis on the obverse.)

And now a strange, weird, source that came to mind:

“Unlike Medusa, Dionysos is a male god. But as in her case, there is something strange about his sex. In his opening speech, Dionysos, masquerading as a barbarian introducing the new Dionysiac cult in Greece, says that he has assumed a human shape, ‘the nature of a man’ (andros physin, 54). Yet Pentheus, the unrelenting king of Thebes, in his attempt to outlaw the foreign cult and deny Doinysos the status of a god, describes the disconcerting strange as 'effiminate’, or literally having 'the form ofa woman’ (thelymorphon, 353). So Dionysos’s sexual identity is somehow indeterminate. The same goes for his appearance. In the first choral song, his followers say he is the 'bull-horned god’ that Zeus 'crowned with crowns of snakes’ . Later, the bewitched Pentheus chains a bull, believing that the animal is the stranger. Even later, when under the spell of Dionysos, he tells the wine-god that it appears to him that the latter has become a bull . So it is not clear what Dionsysos looks like. In a piece of choral lyric, his followers ask him to 'appear as a bull or as a many-headed snake to see or as a fiery [fire-breathing] lion’. In her commentary, Jeanne Roux points out that the many-headed snake (or dragon) is the Hydra, the monster sporting many heads that was finally killed by Herakles, and the fire-breathing lion is the Chimaira, the mythic mixed being that was part lion, part snake, part goat. So Dionysos’s own Meanads say that he can appear in many different forms, in shapes that are themselves 'contradictory’ in the sense that they are not found in one and the same natural beast – indeed that appear to contradict each other in a monstrous fashion.

Thus the indeterminate Dionysos may epitomize those mythological beings whose shapes are so bewilderingly indeterminate. In this context, we cannot explore the interplay of double images that evolve in the play; suffice it to say that Euripides lets Dionysos turn his enemy into a powerless mirror image of himself, and that it should be noted that the chorus says that Pentheus must be the offspring 'from some lioness or of the Libyan Gorgons’. So the enemy of Dionysos may be the child of that most indeterminate of monsters, Medusa. Not only in appearance but also the nature of Dionysos is somehow unknown. When asked what Dionysos looks like, the disguised god says that he was 'whatever he wanted’. Dionysos is, in that sense, unknowable. He is the god 'most terrible’, and yet 'mildest’ to man. Man and woman, terrible and lenient, god and monster: Dionysos transcends those categories. Indeed, the unknowable nature of Dionysos is emphasised by several recurring phrases such as 'whoever he is.'”

“In Roman art, however, Medusa was humanized and more clearly female; at times she was even depicted in the form of a beautiful woman. During the Roman period, the image of the Gorgon often served a primarily decorative function in interior decoration, appearing, for example, on domestic utensils and wall paintings, but it continued to be regarded as a protective symbol. Representations of Medusa were often accompanied by imagery related to the god of wine, Dionysos, whose worship invoked pleasure and good fortune. The kantharoi found in the corners of the Getty mosaic are closely associated with the revelries of Dionysos. A Roman mosaic from Kisamos, on Crete, similarly depicts the central bust of Medusa surrounded by panels of masks and followers of Dionysos. An explicit connection appears in a late second-century AD mosaic pavement from a Roman villa at Corinth, which features the head of Dionysos at the center of the same pattern found on the Getty mosaic and a guilloche border with kantharoi in the corners.”

Urie 400%

Souced to the TG Calender translation project here: (x)

Urie Kuki has been foreshadowed several times in omake, and in the manga itself that he’s going to acquire a kakuja, or otherwise swelling of his muscles (to a hulk like state). This state form dubbed Urie 400% was first drawn by Saiko in volume four, and has since shown up as a running gag in Omake. Generally though, if something is mentioned more than once, no matter how silly it may seem it can count as foreshadowing.
