wear it like armor

this picture is making me really angry

can someone more eloquent than I am please comment with a list of badass female warriors/soldiers in history because i know there have been quite a lot

i feel like obi-wan was constantly giving cody heart attacks because as the war went on and got more and more dangerous, obi-wan kept deciding “oh, i kinda feel like wearing less aRMOR TODAY” 

like honestly, look at this:

early in the clone wars he had chest armor that looks like it probably covers his heart from both the front and the back and also has plating all the way up his arms as well as on his shins. it’s not perfect, but it’s definitely something, especially considering how the majority of the time, the enemy used blasters

after the time skip, apparently obi decided all that plastoid was cramping his style so he got rid of basically all of it except for his forearms. i would love to see his clones’ reaction to finding out their reckless general had now made himself even more of a target.

by ROTS obi-wan decided to basically fuck armor entirely, opting for fabric and leather alone, content in the assumption that the power of the force and pure concentrated sass will save him. he doesn’t even have gloves anymore lol. cody has long given up hope.

Aries: Make up your mind. Do what you want to do not what everyone else thinks you should do.
Taurus: Time leaves funny marks on the future. Plans change and go awry. But I hope you’re happy with how it all turned out for you.
Gemini:  You’re growing so much on your own. Even if I can’t be a part of it, I am so happy for you. You’re doing great.
Cancer: Trauma makes you stronger. Wear your scars like fucking battle armor. You’re a god damn hero.
Leo: Nothing will change if you keep sitting silently and letting everything pass you by. Grab opportunity. Scream at the top of your lungs. Make a change.
Virgo:I hope wherever you are, you’ve found some kind of peace with yourself. That the pain you were in while you were is finally calm. That all the storms have passed.
Libra: Build in yourself first. The future doesn’t need to concern right now, focus on getting through the next 24 hours before you think of the next 24 years.
Scorpio: You’ve waged a good war. But clinging to something that’s cutting into your palms isn’t doing anyone any favors. Let go. As hard as it is, Let go.
Sagittarius: We’re about to start the greatest adventure there is in life. I hope you get everything you deserve and it makes up for all the pain in your past.
Capricorn:  Stop trying to destroy what you see in the mirror. There is no prince coming to save you. There is no hero here just you. You can be your own fucking savior.
Aquarius: Don’t be scared to take new risks. Jump. The only chances people regret are the ones they don’t take.
Pisces: Stay steady. Don’t fall of the path you’re so dedicated too just because of the shine in someone else’s eyes.

Leo is usually the one to make Takumi flustered, but sometimes Takumi catches him off guard (▰˘v˘▰) 

Just wanted to draw Leo being the big tomato he really is. Also RIP TAKUMI.

I’ve been binge-listening to The Adventure Zone for the last month, and I’m about halfway through The Eleventh Hour right now. I almost never draw fanart, but for some reason I’ve been really inspired to draw some of my favorite side characters.

Whenever I draw DnD characters I like to lean more towards a hybrid of fantasy and modern fashion, cause then you get to draw fun stuff like Killian wearing body armor with a pauldron :D

I saw @muchymozzarella‘s post about McCree having more cybernetics than just his arm and I wanted to make my own post about it since its been a long time headcanon of mine. 

The idea here is that all the pipes and plating around McCree’s torso aren’t just a normal chest plate, but are actually attached to McCree himself. 

The way that the lower plate kind of bends around the pipes to accommodate for them like THEY HAVE TO BE THERE or how the pipes go beneath the waist of his pants?? Super impractical if it was actual armor? He (refer to the pic below) also has a plate on his upper back and I’m just- it’s so impractical and scattered with no real goal to Protect – his sides are wide open – to be like armor.

Now, McCree’s color palette is super earthy so you’re dealing with a lot of browns and not having a lot pop out at you besides the serape. Along with that covering him, it’s kind of hard to distinguish what he’s wearing: Is it a shirt, is it like some kind of under armor to the chest plate, or you can even argue that- yeah, it kind of does look like that brownish synthetic skin that you can see on Genji’s own sides. 

BUT! When you switch to something like Americree or the On The Range skin, you can clearly see that McCree is just wearing a basic shirt. That only makes the supposed armor more confusing

LOOK AT WHERE THOSE PIPES GO

THEY’RE NOT EVEN ATTACHED TO THE UPPER PLATE OR THE PLATE YOU CAN SEE ON HIS BACK; JUST RIGHT ON HIS SIDES

it kind of looks like there’s holes in the shirt by the orange glow to have some kind of accessible port, but all in all-

WHAT IS THEIR PURPOSE

It’s just so oddly designed that the more you look at it, the less it seems like functioning armor pieces and just straight up are cybernetics that keep McCree alive
