I tried to save an ask in a draft and instead tumblr ate it so: in response to “how to ride a whale/dolphin,” you basically need a tiny submarine. The rider sits in a streamlined, pressurized capsule near the blowhole, and has a hatch/fan to let in fresh air whenever the mount surfaces to breathe. There are oxygen canisters for backup/safety reasons, and the “reins” are some sort of corded mechanism that lets you tug gently on the pectoral fins.
This (like all of my unusual mount art lmao) is a fairly hasty design and could use improvements, especially with how cramped the capsule is, but I think I’ve gotten the essentials down. You could also ride without a capsule in a scuba suit, but it would greatly increase drag while swimming.
What she means:
Nintendo needs to make another Kirby Air Ride game, with multiple larger city trial maps, more mini games, an option where you can spend more time powering up in city trial and then competing in a series of mini games and races, and online multiplayer.
A few years ago David Bowie was backstage at a Mötley Crüe concert having a chat with drummer Tommy Lee. David is admiring Tommy’s array of tattoo’s Tommy asks David: “Do you have any tattoos?” “Yes.“replies David. "Look here on the back of my leg. It’s a man riding a dolphin with a Japanese Serenity prayer” “Cool. That looks great man. Got any others?“ asks Tommy. “Yes. I also have my favourite album title tattooed on my penis” “Low?” enquiries Tommy. “No. The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars. “
