so sorry for the weird looking colouring

Taylor Swift as ‘Stella Swan’ in Firelight.

so like, i’m gonna make a full reaction post but before anything else let me just address the giant elephant in the room & also what i care about most lbr: SHIRO. 

i don’t think he’s the real shiro (and i’m sure many people agree but i didn’t want to let other people’s reactions colour mine so i haven’t looked at tumblr yet, so sorry if this is just a rehash of what others have said) for a whole host of reasons, including:

  • it doesn’t seem like a lot of time had passed since he went missing and yet his hair looked like he’d grown it out for months. + a weird technical point but - why was his floof not considerably longer than the rest of his hair given his previous hairstyle? none of it adds up. 
    • side note: i didn’t think it was possible for me to not find shiro attractive but uh. long hair shiro accomplished that lmfao. i’d be like “sorry, shiro” but HE’S NOT THE REAL SHIRO SO.
  • vld does a LOT of foreshadowing/callbacks. and i 100% would not be surprised if what hunk brought up in s2 about the galra having possibly implanted fake memories in shiro’s mind using his galra arm was Important™, especially because we do see another shiro strapped down and being experimented on. it’s very possible that the galra were extracting his memories and feeding them to fake!shiro. what’s interesting is that he seems to have escaped before they were done and that’s why something just seems off about him. he hasn’t fully been implanted with all of shiro’s memories. 
  • probably the MOST IMPORTANT - the black lion rejected this shiro. narratively it doesn’t make sense to have the real shiro NOT reclaim his role as black paladin. like. listen. this isn’t me just being a bitter shiro stan - they spent 2 whole seasons developing his bond with the black lion. it’d be a fucking waste to throw that away. beyond that, while keith is technically able to pilot the black lion, she doesn’t respond as well to him as she did to shiro. 
    • sidenote: i think black’s initial resistance to keith could have been because keith himself didn’t really want to pilot black. nonetheless, while keith’s leadership abilities and bond with black do improve over the course of this season (which i’m guessing is a few weeks/a month at most), that’s not enough time for him to achieve the same level of closeness as shiro had with black. 
  • preeeeeeeetty sure fake!shiro contradicts himself in that scene where they’re trying to figure out what to focus on in the second last ep? there’s also this… weird tension between him and keith? i’m not saying that these two would never ever disagree, and it does make sense for keith to kind of grow into the leadership position and then have mixed feelings about having to step down once shiro gets back, but i think it could be possible that ~instinctively~ keith knows something isn’t quite right, but is so relieved to have shiro back that he’s not really questioning it. 
  • this one is a super reach but no “it’s good to have you back”/”it’s good to be back” parallel? it’d be cool if they save it for when keith reunites with the real shiro. 
  • they pushed the whole “where’s shiro” thing really hard and i’d honestly be incredibly surprised if it got resolved this quickly 

that said, even fake!shiro gets so!!! soft!!!! when #he is looking at keith, just fuck me up!!! like the real shiro’s memories of keith are so strong that even impostor!shiro can’t help but warm up to him, wow, just fuck me up. alternatively, he’s specifically targeting keith’s devotion to him to fuck with him. either way, it’s A Lot. 

ETA: this also means that at some point we’re probably going to see keith/the others square up against him and it’s going to destroy me and honestly i can’t wait 

tl;dr: WILL THE REAL TAKASHI SHIROGANE PLEASE STAND UP

Hi Vika! this is a bit weird to ask but by any chance do you have some advice for painting a beach sunsets o beach scenes in general?? its terribly specific, im sorry ;-; i remember some of your firsts Haikyuu!! fanart where everyone was at the beach and i just love so much everything you did with the color scheme, specially when it came to the sea, sun light and shadowing; i can't really bring myself to make anything look natural at all. Sorry for the weird request, thank you!

ahhh to be honest I do all it quite intuitive because I have lived near the sea my whole life, so,…As for someone who didn’t, or for someone who can’t yet pick the right colours, I would seriously suggest looking up references! (or, if you do have a sea or an ocean nearby, going there during different time of day and night and making a tiny messy etudes, where the main thing is to try to pick up the colour right (you can choose watercolours if that’s an option!). If you can’t really spend time on something like this, or it’s already too cold for it, take photos and use them as references! 

Refs are your key. If you can’t pick the colours from your mind just yet, look them up. The more beach states and colours you’ll see, the easier it’s going to be in the future to find the right tones! 

I hope it can help you a bit, and I’m happy to know you liked the beach series!<33

Sorry I know this is TRACED. So if enough people feel iffy about it (PM me if you do), I’ll take it down.

This is what I plan to do as “screencaps”. Idk I just don’t like colouring over the manga (it just makes it look weird imo) and how traditional it looks. So I figured to just trace over everything to clean it up a little.

If Izumo in the cute little cafe maid outfit was animated… I think this is what it would look like.

The colour scheme was taken from the next chapter’s coloured cover.

Eyes

Ideas from ex-bookjunky. Thank you for the ideas! Hope it’s matches your expectations!

Our eyes are super important and useful to us. We use them to convey emotions, warning, ideas and even how we feel that particular day. We even use them for fashion. Some people who don’t need glasses can place a pair of useless frames on their head just because ‘Hey it makes me look smart!’ Yet another way we have fun expressing ourselves is by buying contact lenses that we may or may not need and change the colour of our eyes! If we forget the contacts are in, it starts to burn and itch and can even ruin our eyes permanently, but No we want to look pretty. And it doesn’t stop there! We even perform an absolutely completely dangerous and useless surgery that has no health benefits just to change the colour of our eyes permanently.

Do we even exist?

“Shit!” she murmured under her breath, hopelessly watching her books fall to the floor. Students briskly walking past her, chatting about their busy weekends, totally oblivious to the new girl fumbling at her locker. She crouched down and started picking up her textbooks one by one, and slotting them into her backpack.

“You want some help?” the voice coming from above her.

She looked up, trying to calm down her quickening breath, “um, sure,” she smiled at the stranger, “this truly is the perfect way to start at a new school,” she spoke softly, her words laced with a tinge of sarcasm. She reached for the last book, at the exact same time the kind stranger did as well.  Not being able to ignore the electricity that was pulsing through her, at the slightest touch from this random boy, who she noted, was also wearing an odd shaped beanie.

You know what today is?? Ace art day! Happy Ace Awareness Week everybody!

To contribute I decided to draw my favourite ace ot3, frazeleo ft aromantic Leo. His shirt was supposed to be the aro flag but I only managed to get three of the colours in. (also there seems to be three versions of the aromantic flag? anyone know what that’s about?) Frank’s shirt design is an actual shirt you can buy right here.

I kind of gave up near the end of this, I realized I don’t know how to draw curly hair so sorry if it looks weird /:

Minghao: I mean, I basically taught first-year Math to Mingyu by myself. If I can get that idiot to understand Calculus, I’m pretty sure I can teach a class of five hundred students eventually.
