MORE Cybertronian Religion

Not content to just have all the ones I already talked about, I came up with a few more Cybertronian religions, and expanded on one from canon. Also, I’m like, kind of regretting what I named “marvelism” and “alignism” cos those were originally just placeholder names but I can’t think of anything better. Whatever. Here’s some pre-colonial religions and a couple that only came in to prominence after the war’d started:

Spectralism. (I should note that I’m totally inspired by @transformersdawn on this one, I LOVE their interpretation of Spectralism.) Spectralism seems to have come from the Mithril Sea region, near Crystal City, but its origins are unclear. The philosophy of Spectralism is that everything that is known in world is bathed in light, and thus knowledge comes from light; the source of that light is the truest state of being. Sparks produce pure light, and when they are extinguished they return to true light. Thus, the color of something, the light it reflects, shows its true nature.

Audialism. What Spectralism is to light, Audialism is to sound. Most definitely originating in the Sonic Canyons, Audialism sees the sound of things as showing their true nature, though they don’t have an analogous idea of “pure sound.” It’s more of a philosophical approach than a true religion, and can be adapted to fit with most other religions. Reform Audialism is a recent development and places much more significance in music. The combination of Audialism and Spectralism is, of course, Audio-Spectralism. I came up with Audialism as a joke but actually kind of liked it as a counterpart to Spectralism oops

The Way of the Flame. The traditional Tarnish religion, as well as the religion practiced by the titan Caminus and his residents, believes in a single “mother Cybertron” creator goddess known as Forge who created all Cybertronians. Naturally, this tradition places great importance on skillful creators and artisans. The Junkions follow the flame, as well, but view Forge as a great warmaiden as well as a smith, and themselves as her weapons. Marvelism co-opted this tradition by claiming that Solus Prime was really that goddess, and the Forge was her implement of creation.

Maximalism is the only religion that originated on Eukaris (and as such is quite recent), and follows the teachings of Preditron as written in the Predacon Manifesto, his collected journals. Preditron was a member of the first tripredacus council, but retired before too long and became something of a philosopher, traveling across Eukaris and learning from the various inhabitants. The Manifesto features stories, fables, and lessons, all pointing towards the idea that life should be lived by nature’s laws: there is always balance, but that doesn’t mean peace; the fit survive, but what is “fit” means different things for everyone; follow your instincts, but note that others are doing the same; and the best way to win is the easiest way to win, but this sometimes means not fighting at all. Many of its stories are pulled from other religions. Some view the Manifesto as more of a philosophical work than a religious one that can be followed while adhering to other religions, but those who call themselves Maximals follow only the Manifesto. After Preditron’s death in 212.Pe, his writings, organized and annotated, were made public by his close confidant Maxima, a jet from the temperate forests. They quickly spread across Eukaris to become the dominant philosophy by the time the first war reached the planet. Maximalism is currently VERY popular among Decepticons, and Megatron respects the teachings of Preditron even if he doesn’t follow them. The mixing of Vosian culture and Maximalism that always existed in the temperate cities, but became much more profound after the destruction of Vos in 235,128.2e, led to Vosian Maximalism, even though there was no Vos anymore, because those darn jets just can’t convert to something without making it all about flying n trines. “Vosian” Maximals are still wholly Maximals and get along very well with non-Vosians, they simply import old Vosian traditions and take on a slightly greater philosophy of cooperation and community than some other Maximals do.

The Way of the Fallen is a religion that celebrates Megatronus. It emerged shortly after Megatron took his name, and follows his teachings… not that he ever authorized this. Of course, he doesn’t discourage it, as followers of this tradition follow his Kaonite philosophy of victory through any means. Whether Megatron is truly a reincarnation of Megatronus is a point of contention even among followers of the Fallen.

Placeholder/dev graphics

When developing a game, and you need to just check if something works and see what you are doing, you need a graphic to work with, because making pretty and proper polished graphics takes time, most devs will just quickly sketch something  and use it as a placeholder knowing it will be replaced by real graphics when it actually is working and implemented. The action sequence where Undynes spears come up through the floor as you run through the maze of boardwalks took a lot of coding and bug testing, so the graphics for the spear that we  recognize as this

Originally was drawn as a placeholder like this.

thats right folks. Toby was the first undertale artist that drew glowing light blue magic dicks.

new troll blog!

yo! i’m a new fantroll blog but an old fantroller who was around for like 3 years on dA [i was pulled on here by @8bit-mau5 thanks]

i’m looking for more troll blogs to follow/+ some promos so! like/reblog this and ill check you out and probably give you a follow ;3c

“Styles is said to feel no affinity toward other band members anymore”

“indeed, their relationship has been so strained during the course of the last year that 1D insiders were expecting a blowup of epic proportions during the group’s last tour”

“The situation became so dire, according to our sources, that the band members were no longer talking to each other, with fist flights nearly breaking out at several points”

“Styles’ apparent disgust with the other members leads many to believe that Azoff will only be representing Harry for the time being.”

…. anyways….

Beside the obvious name change from “Shit Rich College Kids Say” to “Just Some Antifas,” I would like to point out a couple new changes and some things we’d like your help on:

We’ve added a search bar to make it easier to look under certain tags. I’ve also updated our “trigger warnings” list to show all the things we tag - again to make it easier to find stuff or avoid stuff on our blog. It’s still a work in progress and if you need anything else tagged under the list and in the future let us know.

I added a link solely for “What the Fuck is Going On” News. We’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback on it and I want to make it easier for people to go to our blog and stay updated if they want.

“What is Antifa?” is the next thing we’re going to be working on. Currently it’s just filled with placeholders and we’d like your help as we start adding info to it:

We’re going to be adding some basic information and how to get involved but we really want to collect a massive list of antifa collectives in your area with their basic information. We also want to gather a good list of antifa books and if you do zines on the subject matter we’d also like to list those and ways for people to buy your zines as well. So this is where we mainly need your help, if you have any resources that you want listed please do. Our ask box is open as well as our submit box, if you need to add more information. 

A PREVIEW. For a little holiday zimbits/SMH thing I started?

Kudos to anyone who can recognize what piece of art I’m essentially doing a master-copy of ;D

Greyscale is a placeholder. Final will be in color. I just got excited and wanted to share.

There’s gonna be a lot of pie in this thing.


My Check, Please! FanArt

My actual art blog

My fanart of another queer sports series (All For the Game stuff)

Oh I just screenshot the app with my phone then uploaded it to PS and then deleted the text/picture and then added my own here I’ll save you the time if you want to use it (the black box is just a placeholder of how big the picture should be) 

i finally find the proper motivation to make a Lazytown OC, and of course they’re a MayhemTown gang member because everything i touch is garbage~

i love my trash child.

Their name is Filou (Fee-loo), and here’s the info i have so far:

  • Chews gum all day every day
  • Seriously needs to brush their teeth more
  • Slouches all the time, horrible posture. back and neck pains are just a fact of life
  • Sleep is for the weak
  • what is that hair even
  • Kind of a dumbass, gets confused a lot
  • Likes to sneak into neighboring towns to steal food and random knick-knacks of little value
  • Mostly joined the gang out of boredom, stays for the companionship
  • Gender is meh

i love starco, but i really wish that people would consider that maybe star was genuinely upset over losing glossaryck and it wasn’t just a placeholder for her saying she lost marco. other than being a little annoyed at having to practice spells when she didn’t feel like it, star and glossaryck have always gotten along pretty damn well. marco’s the one that tends to butt heads with glossaryck and finds him irritating! is it really hard to believe that star has the emotional capacity to be upset over two things at the same time, one of them being the loss of someone who has been in her family for generations, has taught her everything she knows, and was the only real piece of mewni she had on earth?

youtube

I put together some gameplay footage of Wonder Wickets!

Also featuring new logos for the game and Rightstick Studios.

(music is just one of youtube’s royalty-free placeholders)
(everything featured (especially level design) is subject to change)

I’ve been drawing so rarely lately and I’m so out of practice so this might not be the best thing but I really wanted to draw Mccree because I love this man.

( please don’t tag as kin/me/etc. thanks :> )
