Giant Panda + Iron Man + Tai Chi = Iron Panda, the superhero China’s endangered panda population deserves and needs. He’s also the work of Beijing-based artist Bi Heng. Iron Panda measures 9 meters (29.5 feet) high and 7 meters (~23 feet) wide and he’s currently on display in Shenyang, the largest city in China’s northeastern Liaoning province.

Heng’s Iron Panda is a combination of the Giant panda’s symbolism as a Chinese national treasure and a victim of humanity’s impact upon the natural world, Iron Man, a superhero representing extraordinary technological advancements, and the Chinese martial art of Tai Chi. He view these three combined elements as a statement of how the environment is suffering for the sake of advancing technology and a message that there should be a better relationship between industrial development and the natural world in order to preserve and protect nature rather than destroy it.

You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserves your love and affection.

i finally got round to watching kim’s apprentice series

these were meant to be quick doodles but then they took way too long and i got distracted and i don’t like them but here they are anyway

i like the idea of elf!sjin being taller than sips but he’s also pretty much taller than everyone (except what are proportions whoops) but then i like sjin being short too and being an elf he could go either way??

(also i like how he’s just kinda accepted being drawn as an elf so often, hahaha)

also there’s nilesy in a flower crown because why not <3
