My second SU collab with Kiwi Byrd/@cat-pun! They did the gorgeous flowing lineart and obviously I did…all this color stuff! I’m pretty happy with how it turned out except that I think the red lighting kinda washed out Lapis’ blue skin? ;v; BUT I STILL LIKE IT.
Surely you already know of Kiwi but if you don’t, damn dude!! Go check out their speedpaints and art in general, it is all TOP-NOTCH!
Also btw here’s my speedpaint of this angsty ocean gem:
Hello everyone. My name is Matthew Mercer and I will be the DM for this evening. Welcome to the first episode of Critical Role. Now what this basically is, is a continuation of our weekly D&D game – me and a bunch of other… voice actors gathering around, rolling some dice, killing some creatures, having some adventure.
And now we have the pleasure of bringing it on the stream for you to watch, enjoy, and occasionally interact with.
…But do note, for all you hardcore gamers out there, a lot of this is house-ruled, sort of loosey-goosey, having a good time, so all you number crunchers – stop paying attention there. Just have fun with it.
Matthew Mercer, Critical Role Episode 1 - “Welcome to Kraghammer”
so the four of them have been trying to come up with a name for their group for weeks
nino proposed MAAN (mari, alya, adrien, nino) but alya was concerned that it gave legitimacy to the patriarchy
adrien then suggested MANA bc he googled it and apparently it means power and prestige, but then mari found out it was also a mexican rock band and now none of them can take the name seriously
alya tried NAAM but adrien was like “nah that’s a kind of yoga that chloe does”
they’re currently contemplating AMAN, although there are disagreements about it also being a bougie resort hotel chain
naming the group chat is somehow worse
the four of them binged the harry potter movies at alya’s house one night, and adrien was in love with the idea of the weasley sweaters. so marinette, bless her heart, spends months knitting the four of them christmas sweaters with their initials on the front
adrien has really weird nicknames for everyone in his phone
mari: “moonlight fashion princess”
alya: “beautiful warrior goddess”
nino: “valiant sunshine prince”
that kid pulls inspo from so many shows and random tumblr posts they don’t bother to ask why he chose the names
they all agree that if any of them were ever arrested, alya would be their first phone call. they ask alya who her first phone call would be, but she just snorts without looking up from her phone and goes “…please.”
adrien’s dad likes to compensate (or something) by getting him brand new cell phones every year. so he just gives his old ones to his friends bc they’re still relatively nice and honestly why is his dad like this.
the other three are not complaining
nino is that asshole that will surreptitiously film his friends when they’re not looking and snap it to them like a creep. one time he caught marinette sketching in the park while he hid in the bushes and she’s still so livid that she didn’t see him
[…] The holding pen was filled with 20 slight variations of my own face, all staring at me – kind of like a Bollywood remake of Being John Malkovich. It was a reminder: you are a type, whose face says things before your mouth opens; you are a signifier before you are a person; you are back at stage one.
