reimagin

As Negdra Faunis can attest, warmbloods are good for more than just papping. This burly brownblooded lady can give a warm hug and lift even the heaviest seadweller in her freakishly strong arms, but being a former agricultist, she knows how to be gentle too. You can just feel the warmth radiating off of the roughness of her palms.

Maybe you’re not an average pale knockout, but give it some thought - what do you bring to the table? What can you do to best comfort and pacify your moirail? What’s your pile style?

Kong: Skull Island Soundtrack Available March 3

You can pre-order on iTunes now!

BURBANK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–

WaterTower Music today announced the March 3 release of the soundtrack to Kong: Skull Island – the Warner Bros. Pictures, Legendary Pictures and Tencent Pictures film that reimagines the origins of one of the most powerful monster myths of all time. Directed by Jordan Vogt Roberts, the film will be released worldwide in 2D, 3D in select theatres, and IMAX beginning March 10, 2017.

Composer Henry Jackman (X-Men: First Class; Captain America: The Winter Soldier; Captain America: Civil War; the Kick-Ass films) created the film’s lush symphonic score. His music highlights Kong’s emotional connection with some of the characters by giving specific moments in the score what he says is “a bit of humanity and sensitivity. The great thing about a monster movie is that it opens the door to use the symphony orchestra in its most sumptuous way.” Jackman continues, “(Director) Jordan Vogt-Roberts was happy to celebrate the gravity and history that comes with a full orchestra, but we also explored less traditional elements. That’s a field day for a composer.”

In a nod to the film’s ‘70s period setting, Jackman infused the score with the bold, classic tones of the decade’s psychedelic guitars.

The music, which serves to both heighten the film’s emotion and underscore the action, was one of the final creative elements to fall into place during post-production. It was the culmination of a massive undertaking that had taken the production to three continents. Throughout the process, everyone involved in the film was intent on being respectful of Kong’s history, even while crafting a next-generation iteration of the mythic beast.

Listen to “The Island” from the Kong: Skull Island soundtrack (above). The album is now available for preorder on iTunes and on CD.

ABOUT KONG: SKULL ISLAND:

Kong: Skull Island tells the story of a diverse team of scientists, soldiers and adventurers uniting to explore a mythical, uncharted island in the Pacific, as dangerous as it is beautiful.

As their mission of discovery becomes one of survival, they must fight to escape a primal Eden in which humanity does not belong.

The film stars Tom Hiddleston (“The Avengers,” “Thor: The Dark World”), Oscar nominee Samuel L. Jackson (“Pulp Fiction,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron”), John Goodman (“Transformers: Age of Extinction,” “Argo”), Oscar winner Brie Larson (“Room,” “Trainwreck”), Jing Tian (“Police Story: Lockdown”), Toby Kebbell (“Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”), John Ortiz (“Steve Jobs”), Corey Hawkins (“Straight Outta Compton”), Jason Mitchell (“Straight Outta Compton”), Shea Whigham (“The Wolf of Wall Street”), Thomas Mann (“Me and Earl and the Dying Girl”), with Terry Notary (“Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”) and Oscar nominee John C.

I cannot recall ever hearing the full song in the DCA entry area - an edited version possibly? - but this sticks with me as being very evocative of the pre-reimagining California Adventure park, a large part of the ‘impression’ it gave off, very much being more pop-culture based in its’ ‘appreciation’ of the state.

Our attractions are sparkling more than ever!

Disneyland® Paris opened its gates twenty-five years ago, becoming the biggest Disney venue in Europe.

Ever since opening day, we’ve made it our goal to provide you with a one-of-a-kind Disney experience and unforgettable memories. Reimagining nine attractions and shows along with all new features has been our ambitious target, launched in preparation for our 25th Anniversary, with the ultimate aim of creating new magic at Disneyland Paris.

Creativity and technological innovation are at the heart of the Disney DNA. Attractions such as Big Thunder Mountain and Pirates of the Caribbean have been reimagined (or are still being renovated) to produce an even more thrilling guest experience. Attention to detail and the very highest quality can be seen in everything we do and they underpin the very essence of Disney magic.
With these same principles, iconic attractions such as “it’s a small world” and Peter Pan’s Flight have been reinvented with all new colour palettes and special effects.

Here is an overview of our major renovations.

Okay, but WHAT IF…?  ^_~

I’ve been slowly rewatching Yuri On Ice these last couple of weeks (the English dub this time so I don’t have to read subtitles while drawing).  I’ll watch on a separate window while sketching some of my favorite key moments. 

I stopped at episode 7, as you can see… Should I draw some more from the later episodes?  I’ve gotten kind of addicted to drawing “Yurie” and “Viktoria.”  XD  Also, asymmetrical bobs are the BOMB.

I wonder if YOI would have gotten as popular as it has if the main characters had been female.  I hope so!

EDIT: I took some advice from @anastasia-cherubin and adjusted a few of the motions.  Hopefully it worked all right!  It’s certainly not perfect, but everything’s a learning experience.

Look!!  Rough animation!!

I’d like to clean it up at some point and make it all purty, with a background and junk, but that may have to wait for a bit.  In the meanwhile, have this!

HUGE thanks to everyone in the stream chat who hung out, especially to @heilos and @shadowlillium for their advice on certain parts!

remember when Akdong Musician did the perfect cover of Ring Ding Dong???

Honestly one of the weirdest things about the hs fandom has got to be the sprite edits. We take canon images of characters and alter them for no reason at all, and i have no idea why and have never seen another fandom equivalent thats not just accepted, but expected. Like oh its gamzee but with vriskas hair and kanayas horns and also his horns are hanging off those horns. Again.
