these designs are just fantastic

We dangerous ones

Aaah, the Lethifold! One of my favourite creatures from reading the book as a child. Thanks to @zinfandelli for suggesting it as a creature, I was psyched to draw Credence with one. 
(And of course I saw the official design on the bluray just as I was about to start colouring, and had to change up a bunch of stuff from my sketch haha)

This may have started out as a design study, but… Graves’ back, though 👌
Art blog: questionartbox


“Thank you for receiving me in your new home,” I say, smiling. “Where should we start ?” 

Mr. Graves shrugs. I could almost believe he doesn’t care about the uproar surrounding Grindelwald’s discovery and his subsequent rescue if it weren’t for the way his eyes avoid mine, the way his fingers tighten around the whisky glass in his hand. “The beginning, I suspect.” 

“The night you were captured,” I start, trying my best to conceal my excitement. The truth, finally, revealed to the public, quenching their thirst and the rumors, perhaps salvaging Mr. Graves’ reputation. “What was it like?” 

Mr. Graves looks down at his tumbler. He seems to mull over my question, then he takes a deep breath and says, “A miracle, in the beginning. I met him at a bar.” 

My lips part in surprise and I nod - understanding what he does not say out loud. It seems the rumors regarding his relationship with one Theseus Scamander were not unfounded. 

“And then,” he says bitterly. “It turned into a nightmare, but there was no waking up from it.”

I just finished binge reading UTA, and OMG IT'S AWESOME!!! Everyone is so cool and rounded, and the designs are just fantastic, thank you for sharing this with us!! On an unrelated note, Argus design in the last few chapters kinda reminded me of a young Obi-Wan Kenobi, so now I'm totally picturing Jedi Argus kicking ass with a lightsaber.

Top 10 sentai suits design.

This one is one I’ve been thinking about for a while since I got it in my inbox. There are a lot of possible answers to this but I wanted to hold off until I caught up on some others and give it a bit of thought. Now that I’ve had the time, here we go!

10. Ryu Commander from Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger

This is going to be the most recent entry on the list and places this low because of that.  That said, I love this look.  I have always been a sucker for the long coat look on tokusatsu heroes going back to at least Shinken Red’s Super Mode and Kamen Rider Wizard, both designs I adore.

When you add violet, which is my favorite recent edition color, to the mix, you have a suit that REALLY hits my sweet spots for awesomeness. Plus, you make it dragon-themed and that just pushes it over the line to being one of the ten best ever.

9. Dragon Ranger from Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger

Sticking with Dragons and extra Rangers for a moment I can’t let Burai’s hero outfit go by without adding it to the list.  He started the trend of taking the look of the original heroic suits and adding to them (in his case the chest protector and added gold bands) to the design to make the sixth hero’s outfit something really special. His is also just a great take on the general Zyuranger costume theme and his shade of green is particularly appealing to the eyes, vibrant and rich but not pastel or too dark.

8. Starninger from Shuriken Sentai Ninninger

I am not the biggest fan of the series Shuriken Sentai Ninninger but I am a fan of Starninger, especially his ridiculous outfit.  This may be because I live in Texas and am an American and Starninger’s cowboy rock star outfit is exactly what I expect the rest of the world to think of when they come up with a Texan hero.  Built in cowboy hat?  Check!  Lone Star faceplate? Check! Faux fringe on the faux poncho?  Check and check!  I also love the balance between gold, blue black and red with the gold being primary and everything else used as accent.  It’s a great look and I can’t help but love it!

7. Heart Queen from J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai

One design element of Sentai costumes I don’t think gets used enough are capes.  I love them but more about that later.  Of call the old-school pink heroines, I think Heart Queen has the best costume.  I love the sash across the shoulder to the hip that meets up with her belt, I love the yellow cape that gives a nice color contrast with the rest of her costume, I love the heart-emblem faceplate on the helmet and I really love the four colored triangles on the shoulder.  Each one represents a member of the team and functions as an anchor point for the cape.  Love that design element and I love designs that run diagonally across like that sash/utility harness.

6. Kyoryu Violet 2 from Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger

Two of my personal favorite design elements come into play here, the across the chest diagonal design and the color violet.  I really like the Kyoryuger costume designs and somehow, I like the new ones from the South Korean/Japanese co-production Power Rangers Dino Force Brave/Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger Brave even more with their addition of white accents for the helmets and areas on the uniforms.  However, none of those are violet so I ruled them out. This is a nice design and I really like the helmet with the dinosaur teeth and raised areas for eyes plus the little fins on the lower side to suggest the flippers of a plesiosaur.  That little armored shoulder bit suggesting a dinosaur eye just completes the look

5. Vul Eagle from Taiyo Sentai Sun Vulcan

If you can’t have a cape, I saw go with a scarf.  Yes, it’s more well known as a Kamen Rider costume flourish but I think it works for Sentai as well. Vul Eagle makes this list because I love how simple and iconic his costume is. The white and red color balance is great.  His yellow sun disc stands out on his chest and looks great.  But what really does it for me is his helmet.  The design might be kind of simple but I love the look of it with the huge golden eagle in the front and the yellow accents around the visor suggesting wings.  It’s a really great look.

4. Dekared from Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger

This is another costume I like for the helmet design. That’s not the only reason but it’s one of the first.  I like the police lights on the side of the helmet, I like the way the visor narrows in the middle and sweeps up dramatically to the back.  The visor shape reminds me of the headlights on a Nissan 350Z (which came out about the same time). The other thing I really like about this costume is the way the number designation is done with it being integrated into the left side of the costume and leaving one arm red and the other arm black,  I have a thing for asymmetric costume designs and this one is just fantastic.

3. Gokai Green from Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger

I really, really like the outfits from Gokaiger.  They pirate theme mixed with a Sentai costume really works with the flared boots, hat-like helmets, high collars and colored coat over a black undersuit just creates a unique look that I really, really think is one of the best designs in the last 10 years. So, why Gokai Green?  I like Green. It’s a good color when done right and Doc’s heroic costume is just the right shade of green to strike my fancy.

2. Akaranger from Himitsu Sentai Goranger

This may seem a pretty easy choice and it was for two reasons. 1) It’s the original Red Hero outfit and set the standard for what Sentai heroes look like. 2) It has my favorite design element of all time for a Sentai costume, that short cape. I love the way capes of that length move in battle and how easy they are to flourish dramatically without having them get in the way or drag like a long cape would. I also just love his thigh holster and high collar.  It’s a classy look that’s really passed the test of time.

1. MagiRed from Mahou Sentai Magiranger

Once more with the capes!  I love capes on Sentai outfits as I just said and I think the capes on the Magiranger outfits are just perfect.  I’m going to go with their original, non-powered up forms because I just think the outfits are better before the added on bits and changes.  The lines are clean and sleek, the material is nicer than the simple cloth used on Akaranger above and the helmet design works much better for me.  In short, good costume design is Magic!

Why is it that Orlok is so much scarier than other vampyres? IDK I guess it's a personal thing but I like to ponder why the really, really, REALLY old version of the vampyre in film is the scariest one, in spite of changing sensibilities in what constitutes horror, improved effects, and the fact that his film is silent and most people hear it with a version with a silly dissonant soundtrack. (Sorry if this is totally random but I'm obsessed with Nosferatu and NEED TO TALK ABOUT THIS)

I am always here for random vampire discussion!

My opinion: Orlok is so much scarier because he’s obviously monstrous, but still needs humanity in some way. Plus, the character design is just so fantastic. The costume and makeup! Unsettling, but you can still see the traces of a person in there. 

Also, the practical effects and b&w footage help Nosferatu be much more unnerving, because your brain fills in the gaps. While I am always impressed by what filmmakers can achieve with digital FX, I will always believe that practical FX have a place in horror, and just because you *can* do something digitally in post-production doesn’t mean you should.

Finally, let’s face it: Murnau had a fantastic eye for filming unsettling images. 

Your comment about the “silly dissonant soundtrack” leads me to ask: have you heard Jill Tracy and the Malcontent Orchestra’s soundtrack for Nosferatu? If not, you must give it a listen. 


Check out these absolutely stunning tattoo designs I just had commissioned from my friend Learon Inbar, a fantastic pen and ink artist among many other talents! See more of her work, and hit her up for extremely sick commissions, at her art instagram here.

Very excited to get this done in conjunction with my surgery. It is a promise to myself to try to inhabit my body more and make it my own instead of a random meat vehicle. The symbol is the electrical notation for an earth ground. I had the outer circle turned into an ouroboros since it is one of my favorite universal icons for cycle and rebirth. The circle shape is also the feminine counterpart to the more masculine sword tattoo I got a while back.

Recommend any good shawn blogs?

I keep forgetting to answer this lol.

Oh man all the Shawn blogs I follow are good, tbh. There’s a couple that I check on the daily either because I have notifications turned on for them or they’re just that good. 🤷🏻‍♀️

So whether they’re writers, graphic designers, or just fantastic people/blogs in general here they are in no particular order:

Hi! I wanted to start watching Kamen Rider but i just don't know where to start! (On a previous post you said Kamen Rider Ex-Aid was a good starting point tho) Any other suggestion? Thanks!

The thing about modern Kamen Rider is that you really can start just about anywhere and not be lost.  What you need is just a good series or a good single movie to get you started.  You could always go with the film that got me on the road to Kamen Rider, 1993′s Kamen Rider ZO.

ZO is a single, stand alone story that’s wrapped up nicely in its run time.  It tells the tale of a young man who was altered by a Scientist to be able to transform into a grasshopper like hero to defend the scientist’s son, who is being targeted by a jealous life-form the doctor created because it wants to force the doctor to complete its evolution into the ultimate form of life.  The effects are fun, the fight scenes well choreographed and the designs for the hero and the monsters are fantastic! Just look at this nightmarish spider monster!

Another good place to start would be with Kamen Rider W from 2009.

I’ve done a much longer write up on this one before (which you can find here) but the short version is that this is one of the best of the recent series.  It’s the tale of a Private Detective named Shotaro and his partner Phillip, who solve cases for people in the fictional city of Fuuto.  Their cases almost inevitably involve creatures called Dopants, which are humans who have used devices known as Gaia memories to gain powers.  When in danger, the two become one with the help of their own Gaia Memories and a belt called the Double Driver which (usually) merges Phillip’s mind into Shotaro’s body making them a single Kamen Rider.  It’s a fun show with a great sense of humor and a really nice introduction to the franchise for a new viewer.

Of course, as I have always maintained, any Kamen Rider show can be someone’s first. That’s kind of the genius of the franchise (and of tokusatsu heroes in general) each season is its own story with its own heroes and its own themes.  The only real constant is a transforming hero with an insect motif (though even that can be violated from time to time i.e. Kamen Rider Amazon) who battles monsters working for an evil organization. So, if any series you’ve read about seems to strike your fancy, give it a shot.  There is a Rider out there for everyone.

Another personal favorite of mine, just as a quick recommendation, is Kamen Rider Fourze.  Space, High School and the overwhelming power of friendship are the themes of this entry and it’s one several of my friends have really loved.

I am sure you’ll find a series that will get you hooked and I wish you the happiest of viewings.  I actually envy people getting into tokusatsu (and especially Kamen Rider) these days.  It’s so much easier to find it than it used to be and the discovery process is part of the joy of what keeps me coming back to the genre over and over again!

anonymous asked:

ur character designs are fantastic! where do u get ur inspiration & ideas to make their appearances? SRY IF I WORDED THT WEIRD i just struggle with making ocs!

uhfg this is hard to answer, i usually get my idea on making my ocs appearance based on my interest, like the idea suddenly came into my mind in form of things i like or things i found interesting that time that makes me want to accumulate it or put it into a character, like for example, i think anubis looks really cool and from that it branched to, “what if i made an anubis that has a side job”, then anka was born lol, or when i made ghost, that time i found baseball helmet very interesting, and i want to make it into a character, so at first i made my acnl villager wear it and from that i kind of designed ghost and make him into his own character hhh, it could be anything really, and would probably result into a character with interesting design , basically, my process on making character is

and if you decide to make it as an oc, from here you can start developing them as a character, sometimes i make oc starting from their personality and story first then appearance but this way is more fun to me hhh
