The brain has no sex. A woman’s intellect and inventiveness, as well as her ingenuity, are equal to a man’s… A man often depends on physical strength to get what he wants, while a woman has to be more subtle; so she uses her brain. And she is constantly getting more practice. That’s why I say that it’s becoming a woman’s world, year by year, almost day by day.
I want to cuddle with you, feel your hands on my body, feel your hand in my hand, your body up against mine and the warmth that radiates off of you. I wanna feel your lips against mine softly and fiercely, feel your lips brush against my neck, and in my hair. I wanna lay in bed with you and talk about everything, I wanna lay next to you and just look at you in silence..
Greta Garbo getting a few smooches from her main lady in waiting in Queen Christina(1933). [x]
The 1933 film with Garbo was based on Christina, Queen of Sweden; a historical figure and bisexual(or lesbian). In this clip, her Lady in Waiting complains how Christina never has time for her anymore with all her royal duties in the way. Garbo’s character responds that she’ll finish all her pending work and “will go away for two or three days in the country”. Which rather pleases her lady.
I think we all know what plans they have for those two or three days.
Yes, a bunch! Though most didn’t have much beyond their visual designs, so I don’t know how many of them I’d consider “characters”.
The first one I can really think of - this is pre-Paeratopa, but after I’d started making characters in 3D - would be Ayko. She was kinda on that borderline between character and just a design, her name was based on the figure base I use for a lot of my characters (Aiko 4), and there really wasn’t anything too special about her. She’s probably the first to actually have a name and be recurring, though. Lilanie is the second that came up, and she was more of a proper character; a succubus, with a bit of a personality too.
I posted a picture in a recent post that’s actually both Ayko and Lilanie together, right here! It’s the second picture; Ayko on the left, Lilanie on the right. And here’s a picture of Lilanie herself, too (excuse the kinda ugly postwork, I was experimenting a lot with Photoshop filters still):
I’ve got a bunch of my characters kinda loosely sorted in “generations”, so Uzuri is from the start of generation 2, while Lilanie is the first in generation 1. (Ayko is the sole member of generation 0, haha.) In my little archive list, Uzuri is number 17, the rest kinda came and went. Including a bunch that came after Uzuri, and just didn’t really hold as much appeal for me.
Uzuri really was one of the defining inspirations for all of my characters that came afterwards, I’d say alongside Lilanie who inspired me to make more fantasy-based characters. For trivia’s sake, characters number 18 and 19 were Wanda and Kaitie, so they had a part in defining my style, too!
This has been the 2nd winter in a row that hasn’t been jaw pain hell for me, which is wonderful, and thanks entirely to a really simple exercise I was given by dentist!
I figure this will come in really handy for other people who suffer with TMJ or any other conditions that cause jaw pain.
Put your tongue on the soft part of your palette at the back of your mouth.
Keeping your tongue in place, open your mouth as wide as you can without it hurting or clicking. Make sure you open it straight!
Keep your mouth open for 5-10 seconds before closing it.
Repeat for a few minutes every day.
It’s important to keep this up as it strengthens your jaw muscles over time. It WON’T stop your jaw from clicking, but it does keep it from hurting so much and makes it a lot less sensitive to the cold (although do still make sure to wrap your face up warm just in case!)
It’s really weird how steven universe is trying to send the message that you should forgive everyone,even if people try to destroy the things you love.
But,that’s what crystal gems stand for,they became the crystal gems because homeworld would have killed them for their choices.They are rebels and now the show is saying that standing up for yourself isn’t worth it.
