which is great

anonymous asked:

Hello! Thanks a lot for translating the omakes from last vol <3. I just wanted to ask what is "mag rists" and "mag" ; v; I dont get those two words. Thanks a lot in advance and sorry for bothering.

“Mag” is a term (most likely based on magna which means great in Latin) that Saiko made which refers to Urie going 200-400%. When Urie transforms into the Hulk-like monster, he “unleashes the Mag” or “mug-ifies” (THS version, though it should be mag instead of mug).

“Mag-rist” would then be someone who can “unleash the mag”, or someone who can transform into a Hulk-like monster like Urie and Aura.

According to Eugene Nida, dynamic equivalence is the “quality of a translation in which the message of the original text has been so transported into the receptor language that the response of the receptor is essentially like that of the original receptors.” The desire is that the reader of both languages would understand the meanings of the text in a similar fashion.

okay but:

  • how can you presume to know how the original audience received it?
  • there is no universal reception for a given text in the first place, so which hypothetical reception do you pick?
  • how can you anticipate how the receptors will receive it?
  • they will not experience a universal reception either, so which possibility do you choose?

this adds an extra layer of interpretation on the translator’s part, like a soft cloth over the sharp corners of the original text, which can be great for increasing its accessibility and beauty, but won’t create an objective equivalence, only one that is so from the translator’s particular perspective. translation is always subjective.

Hi! I LOVE your art, it is so cool how you do the lighting in each piece. I was wondering what you use for your art? Like the hardware and the software. I would love to start making art of my own. Thanks in advance!

Heyo!! THANK U! ;v; I’m very proud of the lighting I figured out for meschtuff! I’m so glad you like it as well! :D

I’m mainly using Manga Studio 5EX for my artwork. It’s fairly cheap and is super great! I found it whilst reading Paint Tool SAI reviews and someone suggested to buy this programm instead - I tried SAI and must say that I’m much more comfortable drawing with Manga Studio and was so from the beginning on. I also tried Photoshop, still use it sometimes, but my personal preference is just my beloved Manga Studio program, haha. It’s super easy to understand and also very customizable, which is great!

As for hardware; I’m using a Wacom Cintiq 13hd. It has a lil’ 13z screen on it (meaning it’s not very large) which makes it much easier to draw digitally, in my opinion. Wacom products are always fairly expensive, though! If you want to start out, you should try pen tablets that are in your price range - don’t spend hundreds or thousands of dollars/ euros on a tablet if you’re only starting out. In the end, it really doesn’t matter if you have a fancy one with screen or a tiny one without screen. You create art with whatever you can get! I used to have a UGEE one that cost like 20 or 30 bucks used from ebay or so that my mom got me for a start (thanks mom)! That one doesn’t have a display/ screen, but you get the hang of it pretty quickly. Hand eye connection is very important here. I’m glad I got to learn with one of those before I saved up for the Wacom one! 

My computer is total crap, lmao. I really gotta upgrade it. It’s a regular old stationary computer with one screen that is also crap. I’m saving up for new stuff, haha.

Sorry for the late reply! ;v;

My mom: oh my daughter just loves to read, she’s read more books than anyone I know

Me internally: all I read is gay fanfiction

Me out loud: oh yeah I love reading

my daily to-do lists are shorter this summer because i’m working full time, so i’m experimenting with spreads a little. last week’s was “3 things i’m proud i accomplished each day.”

So what you’re telling me is that the lieutenants are okay 👀👀👀👀 


I’m happy right now, so I’m nervous 
Because there’s always the calm before the storm
Because I don’t want to be set on fire and burn quickly
I’m cheering for love

It’s hard not to hate. People. Things. Institutions. When they break your spirit and take pleasure in watching you bleed, hate is the only thing that makes sense. But I know what hate does to a man. It tears him apart. Turns him into something he’s not. Something he’d promised himself he’d never become.
