To all my overachievers who don’t get praise from parents and loved ones anymore because it’s just expected of you to do well: I’m proud that you passed that test, I’m happy you graduated with honors, I love that you try your hardest all the time.
I know sometimes the lack of support and encouragement from those whose opinions matter the most to you can be disheartening, but keep pushing through and being the amazing person you are.
I really wanted to try doing a more realistic portrait again so I used my beloved DnD character, Marf the Monk.
TONS of new experimenting in one drawing! Especially coloring, brush use, and lighting. I’m really hype because I finally got the “colorizing a black and white painting” to work out and while the grayscale may have taken ~10 hours to shade, it only took about one hour to color! I’m definitely going to practice this method some more because I’d love to be able to offer examples of this style for commissions.
since the “best stuff first” feature is destroying our blogs i want to start reblogging more creations from smaller blogs and blogs that just don’t get enough recognition because of this useless feature so tbh i don’t know if this thing will work but i wanna try because there are so many edits that are amazing but we just don’t get to see them
so just reblog this post with your creations tag and whoever wants to do the same thing as me will be able to
Imagine Atem returning in his own body and showing up at Yugi’s house when only Sugoroku is there. Yugi’s out shopping with his mother or at class or with friends. The two talk at a table for a while. Eventually Atem makes his way up to Yugi’s room.
Its been a while. But something about it feels like home. He walks around it slowly, feeling surfaces and picking up small objects. He takes the box that contained the Puzzle and sits on Yugi’s bed, just like he used to, with it in his lap.
And then he hears Yugi’s voice coming through the window and his head shoots up. He makes it to shop by the time Yugi makes it to the door, and Yugi drops the bag he was holding instantly. Yugis mother stands behind her son, confused as he walks slowly through the room to stand face to face with his Other Self.
Yugi just kind of lets his mouth hang open and shakes his head slowly, lifting his hand to Atem’s cheek but not quite touching it. This can’t be real. And then Atem’s hand is there, holding Yugis palm to his face. And it feels real. It feels like a full blown version of the sensation of Atem’s transparent hands cupping his own as they stood in his room, promising each other forever. Its stronger, and warmer, but its the same gentle hold. Atem can see the question in Yugi’s eyes. He smiles and it hits Yugi like a freight train because its that smile that he’d only ever seen Atem show him. Yugi’s doubts are cleared before the words even leave Atems lips.
Yo so I have this thing about Shipping hide with ppl and I ship him with Urie. Urie thinks he’s irritating, but starts to have feelings for Hide cause he reminds him of Shirazu. Imagine Kuki leaning on Hide and thinks “youre so much like him” and whispers “ginshi…” hide doesn’t say anything and let’s Urie rest his forehead on his back while Kuki clings to his shirt
When your best friend and almost-older
brother told you a lifetime ago that he was going to make something of himself,
you believed him. You didn’t realize, then, just what he’d gotten himself into—and
with whom he’d gotten involved. Gangs take the place of rival clans, and your
(oh-so-dumb but oh-so-ferocious) childhood friend got mixed in with the Owari
‘family’ a long, long time ago. For years, you had no idea, even if someone
else in your family did – to their peril. When you do find out, you’re bound
and determined to get him out, but there’s no leaving that life completely –
only competing with a 'family’ of your own. Luckily, he’s got the wild,
enthusiastic Keiji and the grim but strategic Toshihisa
on his side, as well as an uneasy truce with
Hideyoshi, who is poised to take the reins from Owari’s leader. For you, loving
Inuchiyo means setting aside dreams of being a chef to instead enter an
underworld darker and more violent than you’d ever imagined, and trusting both
your hearts are strong enough to survive it.
After accepting a position catering for
the prestigious Oda, Inc., a company your childhood best friend has been
working for, your life takes an abrupt swerve into 'oh shit’ territory when a
confrontation with an Oda, Inc. middle manager over his harassment of female
employees takes a dangerous turn. Luckily for you, Inuchiyo has your back, and the
head of Risk Management, one Hideyoshi, has his, and puts an end to things by
convincing the CEO of the truth. You find yourself by his side more and more as
Oda, Inc. begins to aggressively pursue multiple simultaneous, risky acquisitions
and he is put in charge of their success. Having risen through the ranks from
the entry-level rung, with a local education instead of the prestigious college
credentials of his peers, he faces near-universal opposition to his proposals,
but you’ve never seen someone as charmingly capable of maneuvering a situation
to his favor, and he doesn’t just have two (grumpy but) incredibly brilliant
strategists on his team to see him through—he has you.
Another case where I can make up whatever
I want and pretend it’s a parallel forgive me. Accepting a position as company caterer
for a company as prestigious as Shingen Corp. was a dream come true. Or it was, until a simple taste test of the
soup you’d left unattended for mere moments ended in some very unexpected side effects. A sensual, striking, stunning chemist
from Shingen’s Research & Development department shows up just in time, and
as the series of mysterious incidents of Shingen Corp employees continues, you
find yourself enlisting her help time and again to identify just what is being
ingested to make everyone act so strange, before someone ends up swallowing
something fatal. She didn’t exactly mean to stick around, but something about
your earnest innocence is intoxicating, and your time with the flirty,
ferociously confident woman is dazzling. But just as you’re starting to wonder if
there’s a different sort of chemistry
between the two of you, a kind that isn’t as one-sided as you think, you learn
there is no employee by her name at
The Director of Public Relations of Oda,
Inc. certainly has his hands full on a daily basis. The largest economic force
in the country is headed up by a volatile CEO who doesn’t always play nice – leaving
Mitsuhide to smooth ruffled feathers and appease the press. Your close
friendship with one of the Executive Vice Presidents – one Oda Oichi – attracts
a little too much attention from the boss, and you find your pastry-making self
suddenly under very close scrutiny. Passed off to Akechi to keep an eye on, he
finds his hands even fuller, and you find your curiosity getting the best of
you. As the decisions of Oda, Inc.’s CEO veer into more and more questionable
territory, Mitsuhide finds himself in a moral crisis, and you’re right at the
