finally some more characters for my overwatch avatar au! i really wanted to draw genji and hanzo doing the dragon dance from the atla episode ‘the firebending masters’ (of which i used screenshots). hanzo and genji both experienced issues with firebending after their agni kai (which left genji mortally wounded) and they visit the sun warriors together to learn the true meaning of firebending, which i think would really help their relationship. 

i struggled with a design for genji. in the end, i combined elements from his young skins and his normal skin (his body is mostly composed of robot parts but covered up with a more ‘avatar’ style of clothing. i also added a combustion bending symbol on his helmet thing because i thought it was cool.

(also don’t fucking touch this post if you like shi///mada//cest, i will know and i will block you)

The 58 and 1/2 Minute Gap

I’m a very logical person, and I believe most things can be explained through science, but I’ve had a few experiences that I’ve had trouble explaining to myself–moments my body tells me has happened, but my mind tells me should not have. I guess, according to sixpence, they’re called “glitches”.
As I said, I’ve had a few of these experiences, but most of them have been fractions of seconds long. I’m not superstitious or overtly paranoid, but last summer, on a cruise with two of my cousins around my age, something happened that I haven’t quite been able to shake.
It was our second night on the ship, and we thought it would be funny to run around causing havoc, in a real “Leonardo Decaprio sticking it to the upper class in Titanic” sort of way. We found our way to the richer levels, and laughed our way down elaborate hallways with beautiful lighting. While walking (or rather, stomping) we discovered that each door had a doorbell. These halls were different from the rest of the ship in that they were long and dead-ended. This meant that when we decided to ding-dong-ditch everyone, it required that one person stand at the end of the hall, then sprint to the two waiting at the exit while slamming their hands on each doorbell. After much discussion, we decided that my boy cousin was faster than both of us, and would be less likely to get caught.
After a few seconds of preparation, my cousin and I danced on our feet, watching him speed through the halls, itching to run from our self-inflicted trouble. When he got to the end, a large man stuck his head out of his fancy door, and after watching us giggling and pressing more doorbells, decided to chase us. There aren’t many places to hide if you get caught on a boat, so an unspoken consensus was made that we would need to run fast enough to not be recognized.
We sprinted down levels and levels of stairs, until we reached a landing with no where to go, except for into the endless hallways. Now the hallways were set up so that if you kept running in one direction, you would go in circles, but each landing had an exit to the left and an exit to the right. We knew we had a few seconds to debate which way to go, but for the first time that night, I disagreed with them. I thought it would be more faster to get to our room if we went to the left, and they thought the same of the right. We didn’t have time to debate and agree, because we soon heard yells and stomps from the stairs in front of us. Without thinking, we split up. I pulled out my timer, just to prove without a doubt that my way was faster, and began sprinting, quickly finding my way towards our room. My timer, which I screenshotted, said 1 minute, 34 seconds. I entered the room smugly, convinced I had beat them.
When I saw my cousins talking closely when I entered, I was disappointed. When they saw me, they were shocked. They had been discussing what to say to my grandma about me getting caught by the man. To them I had been gone for over an hour. To me and my phone, I had been gone for 1 minute, 34 seconds.
The next half hour was spent debating how long I was gone, the games with the doorbells before were completely forgotten.
Everything except for my timer and my mind tell me that they were right, but I know what my phone says, and I know I would not have been able to continuously sprint for over an hour.
That night I lay awake, trying to convince myself that they were right, but I knew how long I had run for, and so I kept asking myself: where was I for the other 58 and ½ minutes?

  • Inej: ...I don’t think that’s how it goes

Guild Wars ½ Screenshot Comparison

Something I’ve always found interesting, playing Guild Wars 2, is how consistent the art style “feels” with Guild Wars 1 in many respects. Walking around the GW2 Charr areas, I often feel a sense of deja-vu, having played through the same area multiple times as “Pre-Searing Ascalon” from Guild Wars 1.

This made me think, when you put them side-by-side, how much do the locations in GW2 reflect their origins in GW1?

Well… It’s a mixed bag, as you can see above. Left is GW1, right is GW2, and these are the areas:

  • Lion’s Arch (GW1) and the sunken ruins of Old Lion’s Arch (GW2)
  • The view from Camp Rankor (GW1) and the view from Rankor Ruins (GW2)
  • The Ascalon Catacombs (GW1) and the ruined structures in the same location (GW2)
  • Droknar’s Forge (GW1) and Sunken Droknar (GW2)
  • Ascalon City (GW1) and the closest matching area (GW2)

Now, GW2 is meant to take place over 250 years after GW1, and many areas are supposed to be very different (for instance, the previous Lion’s Arch and Droknar’s Forge were destroyed, in-world, by a massive flood) but I’m surprised about how much the architecture differs to big setpieces like The Great Northern Wall in Ascalon City.

That being said, what’s more interesting is that I didn’t really notice this very much until I took the screenshots, which I guess is a testament to how the second game preserves the spirit of these locations, if not their actual appearance.

I have a few more, but I’ll save those for another post.

Skylar Kergil is Racist

-He basically said #NotAllCops and said that he “can’t say” whether slave owners were racist because he’s never met one

-He’s telling people I told people to send him death threats which I NEVER did

-He screenshotted my personal Facebook name and blasted it on his social media page with over 6,000 people on it

-He had his minions report my post and now I’m blocked from Facebook for a week. This means I can’t organize or push donation pages for all the black trans women I’m currently supporting and trying to find housing for….

-He has over 100,000 youtube subscribers. Why does he give a flying fuck about my rural black queer ass in bumfuck nowhere that has less than 500 tumblr followers???! 

                                      Ysera and The Tear of Elune

I had a lot of fun with this one, even if it did take forever due to the details on the armor. I also decided to play around with it, so it is not exactly as Ysera’s canon design!

The background is a screenshot of Val’sharah. I couldn’t make a background I liked, so I went with a screenshot which I gotta say goes amazingly well with the total image!

May you rest in peace dearie <3

This is most likely be a print at Desucon 2017 if I get there this year!

TTD just said that Tamiel was Boots :(((( I still feel like there's hope but that was disappointing!

To quote my friend @allatariel:

“According to the quiz, “The script for this episode names Tamiel as the mysteries boots wearer who spied on Rick and Aaron in episode 708.” But why point out that the script names her just minutes after the actress who plays Jadis talked about the scripts using alternate names and involving a lot of subterfuge.”

The show would do whatever it takes to prevent Beth’s return from being spoiled. Scripts have leaked before. Having Beth’s character listed under a different name is just another precaution. Isn’t it also a little convenient that TPTB announce who the person in the car is, after joking that it was Beth on Twitter? 

Seriously, Tamiel cannot be Boots by the mere fact that she doesn’t have a scar on her face. And if she were the person that took him, wouldn’t Gabriel mention it? Instead he just referenced an unknown woman. allatariel also saw Tamiel’s boots, and they were mismatched but didn’t look like Boots’s. (She’s going to get me a screenshot which I will post for references.)

Seriously people, chill.

Okay, I debated even ever writing this because I know that that anon just wants attention from me, but considering the high volume of very sweet asks that I got from my friends (new and old) and the posts that people made about me, I feel like the anon has kind of already gotten their attention, so it’s out the window. 

I deleted every rude anonymous ask that I got, and I did receive some nice ones (which were mostly from my friend Alison) but I think I’m also going to keep those to myself. I don’t want to publish anything, because I don’t know which asks are from who. I obviously already published all the asks that my friends and mutuals sent me because those were sweet and I knew who those were from.

All I want to say is this - anonymous hate is not real. I don’t know what I did or who I pissed off to receive such terrible messages (which I took screenshots of before I deleted them), but I want all of you to know that I am okay (if you were wondering) and that none of it is real.

Anonymous hate is one of the worst things that can happen, like, ever, because someone can hide behind their computer screen with no real identity and write really, really terrible things about you that aren’t true. None of it ever means anything. Your friends do love you, and you should not kill yourself, and you are worth something, always. You are worth so many wonderful things to the people that love you, and you can ask them and they’ll tell you what those things are. 

All of my lovely friends stepped up for me tonight, even some that had no idea what was going on. All they saw were posts from other people, and they still stood up for me against this person who decided they were going to spend their night sending me mean things anonymously. So, to you, anon, if you are reading this - I hope that you find some people that love you and show you how wonderful life can be, because trust me, there are much better things in life than sending anonymous hate to strangers on the Internet. I hold no grudges, but I’m sending you love and light and happiness and I hope you realize soon that this is not a good way to be spending your very precious time on Earth. There is already so much hate in the world, and you do not need to increase it. Increase infinitely the amount of love instead, because there is never enough of that.

And to you, my friends - @curlyfrycarrick @fratboyhanifin @chaarmingly @leafsaremyreligion @joshhodang @captainmorielly @thatzimmermanncharm @thirtyfouram @wall-ewest @marnersixteen @bisexualnylander @claudesgiroux @zach-hymans @pbergeron @cantevenskate @damnwassup @buchplease @jo-drouin @jayteemillzee @pksubbandefensesquad @nilliamnylander @imaginarydaze @b-skjeis @ryannugenthopkns - you are a lovely, lovely group of people, and I love you all very much. Thanks for sticking up for me. 

I uploaded a scenery drawing a few days ago and since people seemed to like it a lot,I decided to do some new ones since that one was quite old.

I decided to portray three of my favourite acnl towns like I said here!

The first town is Mayorbrewster’s Moss

I’ve always loved how peaceful this town was so I definetely had to draw it. When I asked you guys what kind of scenery you wanted to see…mayorbrewster suggested a forest with a pond so I knew exactly which screenshot I wanted to take inspiration from.

anonymous asked:

ok but,,,,,,, puh LEASE make a lil tutorial how u make backgrounds because?? theyre so good?

Oh thank you! Also…oh boy.
I’m pretty sure I’m the last person who should make drawing tutorials, but I’ll try to explain how I draw as best as I can and maybe also share some tips that help me with the process.

1) Don’t be afraid of backgrounds! You can do it! It does not have to be perfect or super realistic. Have fun!!

2) References! I draw a lot of fanart so it’s not really a problem to get good references for a background. I usually go in game and take several screenshots which I use as an inspiration. I have a folder full of environmental screenshots from various games. I like to use these as references, because they are much simpler than real life photos and I don’t get overwhelmed by details. 

3) Don’t try to draw an exact copy of your reference, though. It can get tiring really fast and it won’t get you nowhere. We are not doing a study after all. Modify it, use it as inspiration, combine several photos together. If there’s something that is too much of a headache to draw, ignore it and just draw something different instead. As you can see on the picture above, I did not draw the road. I wanted to, but it looked weird and the perspective was completely wrong so I erased it and drew grass in its place.

4) I use only one brush for everything. I fell in love with hard rectangle-shaped brush few months ago and I’m never going back. I’m not a big fan of texture brushes and I paint everything by hand with this basic one. It does not look realistic, but it fits my drawing style, so I’m quite ok with it.

5) Use different sizes of your brush. It helps to create the texture. Don’t lower the opacity too much. Also eraser can be your friend. 

6) I just paint the background directly with colours. I start with simple shapes, just to get the general idea of the background and then I add more and more details as I go.

7) Don’t give up if your background does not look good after the first few brush strokes. Keep drawing! <3

the things is mnet just did nuest so dirty they took 1 member because they knew that if nuest as a whole got out of produce 101 they would have slayed everyone with a comeback and represent a huge competition for wanna one and mnet new that so they took one im so scared that history repeats itself because two years is a long fucking time so nuest will have to promote without Minhyun and im just sad and hate mnet . i hope pledis steps the fuck up so at least he can promote with them

Yes 😭 but the current wanna one contract says that there is no double promotions allowed unfortunately :((( It actually didn’t cross my mind until I saw that tweet which I posted a screenshot of earlier and I think regardless if nuest was eliminated, both groups would’ve been equally popular bc a lot of the boys from pd101 were talented and received so much support. On the other hand, if they all got eliminated then I think Pledis CEO really would’ve seen them as a failure 😩 I just hope people still support Nu'est as 4 while Wanna One promotes, bc if they don’t then it’ll be like how they were before pd101 and they’ll have to disband



Here’s a 21-year-old Emily. Two years of being the Minutemen General, Emily finally settles herself down.

With a house on the outskirts of Sanctuary - her mother, Nora, owns the settlement - she lives with her boyfriend, Carter Garland (the now 29-year-old Brotherhood Captain/Minuteman Sergeant who is Maxson’s son) and her daughter, Rosie Garland. I have yet to make Rosie in my game, but, when I do, I might make her another Brotherhood member like her father.

The house behind her is actually her home, which I have screenshots of!
