So…I decided to redraw a drawing I did back in 2011. I liked the old one back then, but now I think it looks really bad, haha, so it was very interesting to see how different it looks now. XD I really love Tales of the Abyss so I felt like I had to redraw it (but Tales of Berseria might be in competition with which one is my favorite Tales game).


Between 1910 and 1915, Russian Futurist artists created a new form of art called zaum (“beyond the mind”) that fused words, visuals, and sound. Their hand-lithographed books emphasized “sound as such” and rejected logical meaning. 

Explore four of these unique books and hear 10 of the poems read aloud in Russian in a brand-new online interactive that also features Russian transliterations and English translations. The interactive is a companion piece to a new book about sound, image, and word in Russian Futurist book art.

Guy knows what’s up. He also knows his sports scholarships will pay for however many years it takes to knock Sync down to the level of “person I still hate but at least I’m not contemplating death for my entire shift”. You gotta be realistic with these things.



  • Natalia: If you want to take on Luke, you’ll have to go through me.
  • Anise: And me.
  • Van: Is this a joke? I will not be threatened by two little girls.
  • Natalia: You don’t want to mess with us.
  • Anise: She’s a hair puller.
  • Tear: And you’re not just dealing with them.
  • Guy: You’re dealing with all of us.
  • Jade: Except me.
  • Guy: Except Jade.
  • Jade: I don’t care what happens.

Something quick (and super late tribute) to my very first Tales of game. 
Happy 10th Anniversary Tales of the Abyss!!

I’ve been recently replaying and finishing this game for the first time in 5 years and it’s still GREAT just as I remember

Tales of the Abyss cast in a sentence
  • Luke: I didn't do it!
  • Tear: ... But it's so cute...
  • Jade: Oh, my mistake, I almost assumed you had the mental capacity to understand what that basic message meant, but apparently my ears aren't working properly due to my old age.
  • Guy: Don't get me wrong, I love women - I'm just deathly afraid of them.
  • Anise: An aristocrat, where?
  • Natalia: Asch!
  • Asch: Stupid worthless trashy pathetic excuse of a defected replica...
  • Ion: I'll help you, but it won't do anything...
  • Mieu: Master called me a "thing" 30 times today!
