01 / 07 / 17 • Two more days left of winter break and I have barely finished anything early like planned because we’re so busy with packing for the move. Finished this spread though! New year resolutions. May 2017 be good to us. 🌼🌿
You can say I spend majority of my year with Dan & Phil. I am so glad that the phandom welcomed me with open arms. I made a lot of new friends, did fun projects and achieved many goals that I’ve set for myself; like having an entire art summary filled with colours+digital and completing inktober. To me, it was been a very successful year. I may or may not still be in the phandom but where ever my art takes me, I hope to create new memories in 2017 like this year.
Reactions To the Dragon Maid Finale Coming To You From The Afterlife Because I’m Fucking Dead
*Spoilers for Ep 13 Below!!*
. . . .
No one deserved emotional mayhem on this level but I also thoroughly enjoyed it.

-Kobayshi’s just chilling enjoying a day off finally and feeling peaceful and then they had to twist that fucking knife fuck
-I tried and failed to hold it together when Kobayashi hears that Tohru left. Just the way she pauses and doesn’t know what to do and her lil sad face and you can just *tell* this has absolutely GUTTED her that shit took three years off my lifespan.
-My big gay baby ass cried p much the entire montage when Tohru isn’t there that’s one of the most devastating scenes I’ve witnessed in any medium in a long damn while and is like real-life familiar to me a bit and just. Holy. Shit.
-But like props yo Kobayashi’s single mom-ing it up she’s gonna get shit done whatever way she has to
-But it still killed me because holy shit she has takeout because she works late af and doesn’t have time to cook for them
-THE MUG SHE DROPS that hurt me why would they do this to me she’s rushing so much to get ready and get Kanna up
-Taught Kanna to use the rice cooker because she won’t be home

-The way she runs when Tohru comes back omfg
-LOOK AT MY BABIES FIGHTING BIG PAPA DRAGON TO BE TOGETHER
-Like damn Kobayashi woke the fuck up and told off Tohru’s big bad dragon dad U GO BB
-Also what the fuck did he do to her face or whatever??
-Tohru’s face when he does that shit to Kobayashi. Is. PRIME. I literally screamed OH SHIIIIIIIIT IT’S. ABOUT. TO. GO. DOWN.
-Tiny dragon daughter flying her mom to the other dimension to go get back her dragon mom my heart ❤❤❤
-Kanna’s the other real MVP she’s taking care of her mom, giving her the down low on dragon politics, telling her where Tohru is, flying her around.
-Kanna is the prettiest dragon look at those lil feathery angel wings angel dragon daughter ☆~☆~☆~☆
-And then Kobayashi’s measured conflict resolution is life and the way she talks about difference was cool af and just quintessentially her. Diplomatic as fuck.
-The way Tohru like tackles her added the three years back onto my life plus one and gave me clear skin and watered my crops and paid off my student loans and bestowed upon me the most voluminous hair yo.
-IT MIRRORS THE OPENING WEH
-Also she’s TAKING HER AND KANNA TO SEE HER PARENTS YES SWEET JESUS I’M GONNA CRY ˚‧º·(˚ ˃̣̣̥᷄⌓˂̣̣̥᷅ )‧º·˚
-SO. CANON. MARRIED
-Has she like called them? Warned them at all? I hope not I hope she just turns the fuck up and goes “Sup motherfuckers, haven’t seen you in a year. You have a daughter in law and a granddaughter now you will love them as I do. Don’t ask about the tail. Or do. Depends on whether it’ll give you an aneurism or not.”
-I both want to fic it and see it in-ep animated I’ve heard second season is a thing or is that wrong?
-I’ll watch this episode over and over for the next 20 years.
january 15, 2017
hmmm on that last page you can see me trying a new style (and failing badly i mean its really messy ahhh) but i’ve made it a resolution to do something different this year since i wasn’t very satisfied with how the clean and minimal spread was looking ;; but!! i also want to post pics of my art as well, especially how messy my desk gets when im doing art jafsdkf ah, some of the lettering (”softly and tenderly”) was inspired by @studyrose !! ;’-)
hey, guys! i’m back again, with another masterpost (!!!) it’s my fifth one this month bc its one of my new year’s resolutions to make a masterpost for each week of the month! hopefully this helps u guys!!!
some tips //
using an extension/app/website to block distracting sites is a lifesaver
i use the blocksite extension on chrome
u can also use forest to block ur sites + time ur studying
pomodoro is one of my personal favorites bc it’s 25 minutes of work (which is a pretty short time, so u can concentrate better) + 5 minutes of a break (to refresh urself!!!)
remember not to get too caught up in these, bc too many sites + apps are just a waste of time, and u’ll end up studying even less
wow, that was a long post, and now my eyes hurt from staring at the screen. but hopefully this is useful to someone!!! also, shoutout to @studyquill bc her tags and navigation is so organized and easy to use; when i was researching for other studyblr masterposts on apps and websites, i ended up reblogging a bunch from her tag!!! hugs, mel.
hi! i’m shout. im a freelance pixel artist. ive been around for like 4 years now helping people make video games and sometimes things that arent video games. anyway, i specialize in stupid anime bullshit
i’m opening commissions to tumblr again for pixel art, for gamedev and otherwise, which really just means that i’ll do like standalone avatar portraits and vanity shots if you pay me, too
(it went well the first time, so the second round should be even better, right?)
my rates start at 10usd / 32x32 sprite + 5usd / additional animation frame / tile + 20usd / character design,but for large projects like video games ive been known to put out discounts and for very complicated characters (like, for instance, if you want me to draw and animate a 64x64 tetsuya nomura character) (’ses zippers) i tend to markup. i also markup slightly for sprites with a larger base resolution then 32x32, but can do pretty much any scale from like 8x8 to like 96x96 (and really at that point it’s not even pixel art anymore, just really fuckin small raster art)
(if you want, i can usually provide sketches of any characters you have me design, as well)
i’m also an experienced game maker dev (going on like, 6 years at least) so inquire within about other gamedev work, in case you want my expertise (not just my art) (please do both, though) on a game you’re working on
if you have questions, dont be afraid to just speak up, by the way! like, i dont bite. i mostly just talk about cel animated anime and say the word ‘xabungle’ over and over like im trying to summon it in a mirror
you can also reach me at shout#6597 on discord, and email@example.com if you genuinely enjoy writing and sending emails or somethin
P: (…) I also want to channel my creative energies into something, I’ve been writing down loads of ideas and I’ve got a load of ideas for some kind of creative project, I just don’t know how to make it yet. That’s really vague ‘cause I don’t even really know what it is yet, but there is something brewing in my brain which i’d like to do.
Hiveswap release date? Farther than you think. 3/28/17.
Welp, January has come and gone and still no Hiveswap. My prediction for the release is a bit farther than most people’s.
Why 3/28? Let me explain.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- Hussie is extremely sentimental.
It’s not a coincidence that [S] Collide was released on 10/25/16, exactly two years after [S] Game Over was released. And it wasn’t a coincidence that Homestuck ended on 4/13/16. It also wasn’t a coincidence that Volume 10 was released on 6/12/16, exactly seven years after Act 5 started and Karkat was first properly introduced.
And do you remember when the Omegapause started? 7/28/15. And when did it end? 3/28/16.
This brings me to my next point-
On the 26th of January, Hussie mentioned how the bug testing of Hiveswap will take “several more weeks”, and 3/28 is definitely “several weeks” away from the 28th.
Now for some “Hussie Logic”-
The resolution of [S] Terezi: Remember signified the end of the second to last segment of Homestuck. And from the day the comic updated on 3/28/16 to 4/13/16 was the last real segment of Homestuck. So for Hiveswap, it would make sense to release the beginning of what will sort of be ‘Homestuck 2.0′ on the anniversary of the start of Homestuck’s end.
Other possible release dates for Hiveswap could be
2/16 4/13 6/12 7/28 10/25
But the last three are unlikely.
I predict that Hiveswap will be released on 3/28/17.
im sorry but who are watanuki and doumeki?? i am drawn to all of your sufferong and want to be part of it :0c
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They’re two of xxxHolic’s protagonists!!!! Look something like this
I’d tell you to give the series a go if you’re into magic and spirits and life lessons and crying and suffering and soft gays that never become canon in full CLAMP style, and you could just watch the anime and leave it at that if you wish (minimal suffering in that one), but if you actually want to understand something out of the story not only it’s better if you read the manga, but you also need to read Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle (another CLAMP manga) since the resolution of the two stories is deeply tied
it’s your choice! Just know that I highly recommend both series 👍
The New Year is an ideal time to begin to put into action your new plans and resolutions for the year ahead.
Health is wealth, and it is vital to take care of your body via diet and of course, regular exercise.
If like me, you hate the idea of going to the gym, there are lots of other activities to help keep you fit.
Yoga seems to be very popular, but as Catholics and Christians, we know that Yoga is not permissible due to it being based on Hindu philosophies and Eastern mystical theologies which is in dissonance with Christianity.
Here are some alternatives to yoga you can use:
I am a big fan of ballet, which combines dance, stretching, flexibility and also strength training. It not only improves your posture, strength and flexibility, but it can keep you trim and fit too.
I am naturally very slim so I don’t do much cardio or fat-burning exercises, however ballet is a very good way to improve muscle tone and core strength.
Originally created to help athletes recover quicker from their injuries, pilates is fast becoming popular. It makes a great alternative to yoga as it also helps you improve flexibility, endurance and strength. I also practise pilates and rotate between this and ballet 2-3 times a week for my strength and flexibility.
I used to do this years ago and rather enjoyed it. A lot of men will love this too if they find Ballet not challenging enough. Calisthenics helps improve muscular and aerobic conditioning, as well as improving, balance, agility and coordination.
Synopsis: Jon has to support and comfort Damian, who’s begun to have recurring dreams of a friend he was supposed to have…a friend that doesn’t exist in this timeline…a boy named Colin Wilkes.
This is my first serious Damijon fic, so I hope you guys enjoy :D
“Damian, slow down!”
“Ironic, considering you’re the one with super speed. I’m leaving you behind if you don’t keep up!”
Jon sighed in resignation as Damian ran ahead of him. They were at an abandoned warehouse this time, another late night out in Damian’s frenzied search for someone who seemed to never actually be there. Damian leaped atop a stack of container vans, meticulously searching for any clues. Jon trudged behind him, trying his best to pretend he didn’t want to go home. Not that Damian was stopping him, but he was too worried about his friend to even consider leaving.
one of my goals for 2017 was to get comfortable with myself without makeup and it’s only february and here i am in class totally bare faced feeling good as hell and it’s so great. i didn’t understand before what a weight off your shoulders it is to be able to rush out the door and not worry about painting on a whole face every morning like it’s so convenient. also i started a dream journal to keep track and understand my dreams better and it’s been kind of therapeutic? honestly for the past 3 or 4 years my yearly resolutions have centered around finding a relationship and this year my goals are much more self oriented and it’s been a lot more rewarding
I know there's some discourse in the comments section for AH right now, so I just want to say thank you for making such an awesome web comic. It's been a massive inspiration for me over the past year, and its helped me get through some rough patches in life. So once again, thank you for putting in the time and energy necessary to keep updating this comic.
aw thanks! The “discourse” isn’t really bad though, I mean, it’s kind of expected. There’s always gonna be this split between people who love to see villains suffer for their actions and people who relate to them and want to see them redeemed.
I don’t think either are necessarily “wrong,” and I think that’s the entire fun of fiction, getting your own thing out of it.
I’ve noticed in recent years that fans tend to want perfect, straightforward good and bad outcomes in their fiction; they want evil to be punished and good to be rewarded in exact proportion, and personally, that kinda bores me. Yes, they can also be frustrating, but messy or imperfect resolutions can also be exciting in their own way. Some of my favorite fiction is full of tragedy that doesn’t wrap up neatly and to me that just feels “real” I guess.
There’s also this common idea that every outcome in a work is an actual ethical statement by its author - that it represents exactly what the writer thinks is righteous in that scenario. I understand being cautious like that, and some of my OTHER favorite works meet that description, but in my own stuff, I always intend for some things to be sad, dark or disquieting even to me. My settings are just settings where weird, grim things just happen.
How long has it been since I’ve done a speedy job on requests haha ha ha ha . . aNYWAY, above is my tumblr header, which I’ve been using since last year! The wallpaper size is a bit big [640x1136] so the lords look tiny as heck and makes ur head a bit dizzy lbr but this is the real resolution if you zoom in 100%. If you want to make them look a bit bigger, just adjust or crop from your own phone. If you want to make them a tumblr header just use 16:9 ratio, which works the best in my opinion. I also make some yasu, hanzo, kakki and saizo because my friends like them. Hope you enjoy the lords and polkadots wallpaper, nonnie!
