star appreciation

So, I know Suicide Squad won best makeup, but can we just take a moment to appreciate the makeup in Star Trek Beyond anyway? I mean, just look at these:

First off, Kalara. The color gradient and the ridges are just gorgeous.

For Natalia, who only even in this one scene, they had to create super-light prostheses, AND they used a new iridescent, color-shifting pigment that had never been used in makeup before.

Those lights on Krall? They’re not CG. They imbedded fiber optics into the prosthesis. 

And Jaylah. Wonderful Jaylah, they made a “bulletproof” makeup formula that won’t bleed at all and then APPLIED ALL OF THOSE LINES BY HAND. 

I just… LOOK



finn: finds the strength to escape from the people who manipulated and abused him since his childhood, immediately befriends both rey and poe and shows selfless concern for rey’s wellbeing on multiple occasions, begs rey to run away with him after knowing her for a day or less, runs across a battlefield to try and save rey from being captured by his abusers, runs to embrace poe upon discovering he’s alive, lies his way on to starkiller base (returning to the people who manipulated and abused him since his childhood) to rescue rey, gives rey his jacket to keep her from being too cold, plants himself between rey and kylo ren to protect her despite having no training with a lightsaber and knowing he could be killed



So. Much. Appreciation.

Here’s some Finn love for today: Finn, who spent his entire life isolated from the conditions of the real world, who was told over and over again that the FO was bringing justice and order to the galaxy, who believed it because he had no other information to go on, threw all that off the second he saw the outside world.

In both the TFA novelization and BTA, the second he sees the world for himself, he realizes that the FO is full of shit. He immidiately empathizes with the people he’s been taught to hate his entire life.

His Very. First. Time. Out.

Anyway, Finn is the beating heart and moral compass of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Thank you for your time.


Reblog to show appreciation for these modern cartoon old men that would do anything for their family :*)


breathe.  Just breathe.  Now … reach out.  What do you see?

Light … darkness.  The balance.

I meant to post this on may the 4th but I stopped working on it and didn’t come back until now 

new blog! hopefully i’ll be posting more art here!

why the FUCK is bones such an underrated character?

star trek 2009, more like: leonard h. mccoy, md, saves an entire motherfucking ship, plus some foreign dignitaries of an almost died-out race and a high ranking captain while literally never complaining ever, instead supporting everyone as best he can, while in an environment that terrifies him

star trek into darkness,  more like: leonard h. mccoy, md, does a surprise operation on a torpedo and CHEATS DEATH without going mindless with rage, instead working his thinking box even more than ever, while in an environment that terrifies him

star trek beyond, more like: leonard h. mccoy, md, done with all’a’y’all’s shit, casually saves a person with a completely unique physiology, flies an alien ship that nobody knows shit about, flies it again and saves the day, while also planning a surprise birthday party, while in an environment that terrifies him but he’s so dedicated to his job and loves it so much that he can’t even consider doing anything else

uhura is literally one of the smartest characters on the ENTIRE show. 

she knows countless different languages, and as someone who speaks 3 languages, let me tell you that shit is not easy by any means. 

also, not only that, but she is also good in mathematics, like holy hell

and does anyone remember the episode, “The Changling” where she had all of her memories wiped? yeah, well she re-learned EVERYTHING she knew and was back on the bridge afterwards. ok let me say that again, she literally re-learned all of the information she learned IN TIME TO WORK ON THE BRIDGE AGAIN. 

honestly uhura is not just beautiful, but she is a fucking genius.
