the art of powe

I love how this episode interprets Kappas.

Aside from the fact that they can either have water dishes on their heads or having water dishes with frogs living in them or be bald or have full heads of hair to give more variety, the Kappas themselves look like something you would see out of Hello Kitty.

They just look so gosh darn adorable.

German street artist 1010 paints murals that seems to disappear within the walls on which they are painted, each work an optical illusion with brightly ringed shapes. The effect is a 3D cavern on a solid surface, produced by 1010 layering 6-10 warm or cool shades on top of a dark background or center. He has recently applied this technique across the globe, including a mural for the Backside Gallery in Marseille, France and a work on a large public building for this year’s POW WOW Hawaii Festival in Honolulu.

haha we went ahead and got started on that depressing AU 

 probably going to be a lot of lich norbs between commission posts :T

his ‘real’ look and the expressionless awkward illusion of his former self he uses to not look like a fucken lich when interacting with people

Grapple is an unusually tall, tough Level -4 villain, hired in /secret/ by Boxman after taking to heart Professor Venomous’s strong preference for “organic” henchman.

While Grapple could serve more “reliable” than Boxmore robots, he’s got to face her extra needs and requirements for a non-robot assistant doing his bidding. The girl is aware of this, and tries her best not to let Boxman see her as a burden from catching onto any of it… especially not her guilty crush on his greatest enemy.

Even though she’s got feelings for him, she won’t dare let K.O. close; for she is loyal to Boxman and needs the job to sustain her home.

Grapple’s frighteningly powerful hands give her an impulse to hold onto or crush things to keep her muscles firm… otherwise they go soft and limp like actual noodles.

If all her extra arms go limp, she’s got her head-hands! Those don’t go limp since there are no arms attached to the wrists. They work fine, just look embarrassing and weird while in use.

She’s like a human when being expressive through hand motions when she does happen to talk, but the head-hands do it most since they’re up at eye-level for easy communication. How much sillier can that look?
