poster makers

so today me and @yqueerymir were thinking about the Lucio: in concert poster in Overwatch and were like oh yeah let’s buy it as a poster

turns out that not only does that not exist, but the image isn’t online anywhere ???? why ??????????

so we took the most logical course of action and went in game with all the settings on ultra and screenshotted it. this was not easy mind you, as my laptop was running the game at TWO (2) FPS and froze every time we hit printscreen

but y’know, we perserved and finally managed to get a good screenshot and then loaded it into an online poster maker, thinking we’d done a good job

oh no. there was more.

the image was 62mb and the upload limit was 50mb. so of course we then had to very fucking carefully edit it down, using a MCFUCKING LAPTOP TRACKPAD no less, and 2 HOURS after we began, we finally had a finished image

so we were like oh yeah buy a big poster, and selected the biggest size. as english majors, we mcfucking suck at maths, and selected 60″x40″. we then bought 3 copies and went wow 2 hours of work well done

and then we googled the size.

as it turns out, 60 INCHES IS FIVE FOOT TALL. WE MADE A LUCIO POSTER THAT’S ONLY 3 INCHES SHORTER THAN LUCIO.

TL;DR we set out to make a poster and ended up with a 5 foot tall monstrosity and the feeling that we have played god


edit: if anyone wants the image because legit it is nowhere on the internet feel free to ask and i’ll upload it

Wow, why is Ahsoka always in the butt and boobs pose when we know that would be Anakin.

I really am salty that we don’t get more of the boobs and butt pose with Anakin because he has a really great ass (Obi-Wan apparently can recognize him by it alone!) why DOESN’T HE GET TO SHOW IT OFF? he would, guys.

LET ANAKIN DO THE BOOBS AND BUTT POSE, POSTER MAKERS.  He’s the poster boy and the most beautiful, KNOW YOUR AUDIENCE BETTER, GUYS.

Sera, Bull, and Dorian (provided Dorian is drunk enough): Are doing said dangerous but fun thing with the Inquisitor and having a blast. One of the chandeliers they’re swinging on ends up breaking, and they’re forced to clean it up with the Inquisitor. “Worth it!” is the group’s motto.

Josephine, Cassandra, and Vivienne:
Throw a fit and demand that they come down immediately for several reasons. One, it’s dangerous, two, it’s stupid, and three, it’s unbecoming of the Inquisitor and the companions joining them. Each one of this group gives their own, terrible scolding to the ones swinging from the chandeliers. Josephine’s fiery glare and scolding is actually terrifying.

Blackwall and Varric: They laugh, but don’t join them (fearing Josephine’s wrath). They also don’t do anything to stop them. Varric is watching and writing every detail down for posterity.

Cullen: Panics. “Maker’s Breath! You’re going to fall and break your neck!” He frets and demands they come down. When it’s over, he just leaves them to their fate of facing an infuriated Josephine, exhausted, not a single word out of him.

Solas: Investigates the yelling and finds the Herald, Sera, Bull, and Dorian swinging from the chandeliers. He promptly turns around and goes back into his room, shaking his head with a disapproving sigh.

Leliana: Saw them and knew what they were planning. Doesn’t stop them, instead letting Josephine handle it. Silently thinks it’s hilarious, giggles when no one is listening. She could imagine herself and the Warden doing such a thing, back during the Blight.

Cole: Doesn’t understand why everyone is panicking. “They’re okay,” he says, befuddled, “they’re happy. The chandeliers don’t mind.” He’s eventually pulled away by Solas when he starts heading to the railing, as if to join them.

          art history meme:  six artists
          Alphonse Mucha (3 / 6)

          Alfons Maria Mucha (24 July 1860 – 14 July 1939), was a Czech Art Nouveau painter and decorative artist, known best for his distinct style, which has inspired and continues to inspire many artists. He produced a flurry of paintings, posters, advertisements, and book illustrations, as well as designs for jewelry, carpets, wallpaper, and theatre sets. His works frequently featured beautiful young women in flowing, vaguely Neoclassical-looking robes, often surrounded by lush flowers which sometimes formed halos behind their heads. In contrast with contemporary poster makers, his palettes were light, often composed entirely of pale pastels.
