Overwatch Outfit-Swap: Genji and Zenyatta 

[Requests by @morethanlittlesinister , as well as several anons] 

FINALLY. 

Finally, there are robots robot boyfriends who wear each other’s clothes. (Clothes? Pieces?) 

I’m sorry this one too so long, since most of you know I’ve been dealing with chained concussions on and off for over a year. Still, this was such a joy to do, because Zenyatta is my sweet boy - and now looks like General Grievous’ jedi cousin. 

Genji looks a bit odd to me still, and don’t even get me started on how Zenyatta taught him to float… But I took a fair amount of artistic liberties with their designs since neither of them have full reference for the parts of their bodies that aren’t covered? It’s like they planned this. 

ANYWAY ENJOY. 

Thank you all for the submissions!

Long Live Octopus Pie

Three cheers!

I check the webpage out of habit, but Meredith Gran’s comic work Octopus Pie is over.  I feel like this is how sports fans feel when a jersey is retired and lifted to the rafters, forever in its untouchable place, time divided between when it was active and whatever comes after.  

That might sound grandiose, but in my mind, nothing tops the ten year run of Octopus Pie.  And in the lifespan of what we call Webcomics, 2007-2017 is a granddaddy of a run, worthy of names like “pioneering,” “influential” and “groundbreaking” because in the space of those years, in this new medium, there was room to be those things without any hyperbole.  The comics landscape of the past decade needed filling out and Meredith carved her space out with precision, showing a polish and drive and a talent from the beginning that set a high standard.  

I’m guessing that I started Hark a Vagrant about six months after Octopus Pie began, but Meredith’s was already a name to be reckoned with, due to the solid reputation of her previous comic Skirting Danger and because she was an honest to god trained animator in a sea of stickmen comics or two-dudes-on-a-couch comics (RIP forever *kisses fingers, holds them to the sky*). I was intimidated by her sheer capability.  But inspired too.  I did not need to be intimidated, she was one of the first people I met in comics, and easily one of the best.

Meredith and I briefly shared an apartment and a studio, and I can tell you, she can draw circles around everyone you know.  I later shared a studio with Mike Holmes, who could also draw circles around everyone, and now the two of them are married in some sort of talent supernova.  I am happy for them, even though I feel like I make grade three crayon pictures next to them.  But the other thing that being friends with Meredith for a long time has shown is the cutting wit, the care for stories done right, the love for a medium that will take you through highs and lows that come with comics, and lately through her job as a comics professor, the nurturing of upcoming talent.  I see all of this in Octopus Pie, a comic where character was paramount, where plots were expertly moved, a fine balance was found between the messiness of people and the fun you can have with stories, where subtle emotional movements where rendered with room to breathe, where I felt like I could reach deep into the hearts and minds of the characters on the page because they had been fleshed out so well over the years that they seemed as real people, people that I loved.

I don’t really like that phrase “comics will break your heart,” commonly attributed to Schultz, or Kirby, it doesn’t really matter.  You see it all the time, mostly when people are reckoning with the fact that they work in an unforgiving medium.  I don’t even know what it is about the saying that I don’t like.  Maybe it’s because we all know that comics are hard work, we all know that you might put your life and blood and heart into something and you might get nothing back.  There are no surprises to be found there - it’s not a bad day you had, it’s a life you’re well aware of living, if you do.  But we love the perserverers in comics.  The people who live the phrase are the ones who inspire us the most.

I’m saying all this, and pardon the segue, because I have seen Octopus Pie, some of the finest story work of my generation, passed for recognition time and again and it confuses the hell out of me, truly.  I don’t want to turn a tribute to a work I hold dear into sour grapes, that’s not the intention here, but lord above, if I can’t point this out now, then when can I?  We all know that there are no guarantees in this life (comics will break your heart) but I’ll say this once and then leave it: this is a comic of quality that was miles ahead of so many of its peers, and it deserved better, industry wise.  To wrap up the earlier point, maybe I don’t like CWBYH because it implies that you should shrug your shoulders and not ask for better every time, that a short end of some kind of stick is expected even.  That’s easy when it’s yourself, but speaking as a fan now, I say to heck with shrugging, I want to put Meredith on my shoulders and parade her around and dump her into a Scrooge McDuck thing full of awards.  

Actually that sounds pointy and bad and the Ignatz awards are bricks to begin with so maybe forget that analogy but you get the idea.

I hope you read Octopus Pie, I hope you buy the books.  I hope the legacy of it is long and full, because it always will be for me.  And I think readers will agree, because I know this devoted fan base pretty well.  I read the comments, I’ve sat next to Mer at comic shows, I’ve listened to some of the emails that touched her.  I know this is a comic that meant a lot, to a lot of us.  In this world of work we put our hearts and souls into to begin with, that is a wonderfully worthy thing.

I do not know what Meredith will do next, but whatever it is, I am here for it, seat pulled close to the stage.  The retired jersey is in the rafters, the game is still being played by the people who dreamed better because it was there.  Aw what can I say, I’m sentimental!

 Thanks, Meredith. <3

anonymous asked:

Hey so I've been having a terrible day and it would be great if you could make a feel-good bnha thing (art or a fic-whichever you want to do!)

[on twitter]

so i didn’t know what i wanted to draw more so i drew them all instead 

(these are all totally platonic btw)

some info about the pics: i really wanted to draw a cute Dad Might head kiss. i kinda hope we see this in canon b/c it’s such a Dad thing to do

i have this headcanon that after the midterm exam, Todoroki and Momo become really close and comfortable around each other, and enjoy sleeping next to each other. Todoroki is also really nice to sleep next to b/c he can regulate his body temperature. (i also like the idea that they have sleepovers at the dorms)

Bakugou sleeps like the dead and woke up like five hours after Kaminari drew that. everyone in class 1a has a picture of it on their phone. Bakugou vowes to murder them all

and, as usual: big bro Kirishima gives the best hugs, especially for tiny frog siblings

i hope these helped cheer you up!!!

Also the reason why this is blob shaped is because I literally just coloured in a blob at the corner of my canvas (づ ̄ ³ ̄)づ

let me go

You and Yoonoh were supposed to be meant for each other, but things aren’t always happily ever after.

This was supposed to turn out a little differently, but, even so, i like it. ;))) this uses the soulmate au of like. when you write on your skin or whatever your soulmate can see it and vice versa. Enjoy ;).

meet you in hell

——————————————-

I accidentally draw too much again……I’ll try to make my story more concise next time.

thanks @sugardaddyerwinsmith for the inspiration, I always want to draw them reuniting in hell, but sorry I didn’t really draw much related to your request, hope you don’t mind! :((

I know this hell doesn’t really look like a typical one because the hell I imagine is a vast sea where you are trapped forever, and the only thing you can do is watch your own reflection in the water, looking back at your past over and over again. The wings here represent their past, the reason they are bond together, but also the origin of their sufferings.

BTS reacting to finding their S/O’s sketchbook.

A/N: For @shonyeeo , I’m sorry if this isn’t the best. I was kind of on writers block when I wrote this.

Jin:

Jin would already love you so much but once he found your sketchbook in one of the bedside tables in your shared bedroom, he would love you even more. He would sit there on your shared bed, flipping through the book. A huge smile on his face. Yet he couldn’t help but wonder why you never told him about this. You were so good, so he doesn’t understand why you would keep something like this as a secret. You would walk into the bedroom to see him sat there with your book. Quickly he would hide it behind his back but you would have already seen it in his hands. You would question why he checked it but then you couldn’t help but to smile when he began complimenting your talent.

Wouldn’t really bother much about the book when he found it on the bedside table. He was searching for something else so he would just forget about it. Until later on he saw you sat on the couch with it and when he asked what you were doing, you would hide it from him. He’s never someone to invade someone’s privacy but he was really eager to get to know what secret you was keeping from him. He would jump on the couch and try to snatch the book out of your hands. He wouldn’t ever get it and instead you would hand it to him, a sigh escaping your lips. “You can look but it’s nothing interesting.”


“What do you mean? These are amazing Jagiya.” He would say as he flipped through the pages.

This ball of sunshine would be so happy when he accidently finds the book and had seen what was inside of it. Especially when he saw a few doodles of him. It made him happy inside that you had something that enjoyed to do. He knows how much something like drawing could mean to you, just like music means to him. Later that day, you would be staring outer space and he would think that this was the perfect time to speak to you about it. “What are you thinking about?” He would ask you as he moved closer to you on the couch. “Nothing.”


“What to draw next possibly?” You would be so confused after he asked that. Your eyebrows scrunching up and a simple “What?” slipping from your lips.

He’s always one to think into things. Not all in a bad way though. When he saw your drawings, he would wonder what they all meant. He wouldn’t hide it away from you for a while, that he saw your drawings. As soon as he saw you again that day, he would ask you about them. You wouldn’t be mad at him and instead, your cheeks will start to turn a rosy red colour in embarrassment. He would tell you that there was nothing to be ashamed about and if it’s something you enjoy, you should embrace it. Then he will continue to ask you what the drawings meant. He’s written songs and he loves having meanings to them so he would love to know the meanings of your drawings.

Jimin:


I imagine him freaking out when he finds your sketchbook. The cutest mochi smile spreading across his face. He would flip through the pictures so giddily that he would end up tearing a bit of the page. Quickly he would place the book back where it was. Then next time you try and draw in it, you see the rip in the page and question Jimin. He denies it at first but he eventually gives in. “Fine I did look through it but I can’t believe you kept something like this away from me. I think you’re forgetting that I’m your boyfriend.”


“I was going to tell you one day.”


“Did you ever draw me?” He would ask, that cute mochi smile once again showing up on his face. He would blush a little as well, at the thought of it.

Taehyung:


Finding out that you can draw would be a big deal to Taehyung. He would want to know everything about it and why you kept it away from him. He wouldn’t even bother about the fact that he invaded your privacy on accident. He would be too busy asking you so many questions. “How does it make you feel? Why did you never tell me about this? I’m disappointed. Can you draw me one day? Wait, no. Have you ever drew me before? If you have, can I see? It’s okay if you don’t want to show me it.” He would say, the cutest box smile on his face. It’s something new about you that he’s finding out and he’ll be so excited about it. Wanting to know every little detail. When did you start? If you ever want to become an artist? When did you realise you can draw? All these questions would be thrown at you and he would be so damn cute about it.

Jungkook:


This boy is a multi talented king so when he found your sketchbook he would smile so much at it, like the other members. Then when you find out that he’s found out that you can draw, he would ask you if you could teach him how to draw. He would definitely want to share the same talents as you to bond over it but eventually, he decides not to learn how to draw because drawing is your thing and singing is his. He would walk into your shared bedroom to see you sat on your bed, drawing. Then he would sit down on the bed next to you and just watch you. Admiring how your eyes flutter and your hand gliding across the page. You found his attention too much so you began to laugh and turn red, him then breaking out in a fit of giggles too because of how cute you were.

You are amazing, you update basically everyday with AMAZING art paired with a good story and wow. I'm so grateful for what you do, every time I see you post it makes my day better, especially knowing how hard drawing can be, topped with how hard writing out what you want to happen can end up being. I draw and write, and fuck it can get hard as hell real quick. Thank you so much for doing this, some days I don't know where I'd be without some good art to up my mood a bit!

I can’t stop smiling now ;///; Thank you so much for this message it made day better. Yes sometimes it’s hard to draw but in the end the effort you put in it’s absolutely worth it, even if it’s not perfect or not as you planned. Just the fact that you finished it and you made experience for the next time is a big thing. So thank you so much for appreciating what I do and I appreciate you ;///;

queens-clarke  asked:

bellarke + 6 because I love stars and space a lot :')

thanks for the request bby! i legitimately thought no one would answer xD

bellarke + 6. things you said under the stars and in the grass

When Clarke finally finds Bellamy, he’s sprawled out in the grass with his hands behind his head, gazing up at the stars. For once, he looks almost at peace, and Clarke considers turning around and leaving him alone, because Bellamy deserves this - this rare moment of silence.

Instead of leaving, she lays down beside him.

Bellamy doesn’t look at her; his eyes are still trained on the breathtaking scene before them, the dark expanse of the night sky filled with a scattering of stars. “Hey, Clarke,” he says quietly.

“Hey. What are you doing out here?”

Bellamy sighs, stretches out his arms. “Just taking a moment before the next crisis. Space is beautiful from down here, you know? I’ve never really had time to notice.”

Clarke nodded. “If I had my old sketchbook and my charcoal pencils, I’d draw it all. Every single star.”

Something heavy hangs in the air then, a feeling of something lost. Childhood, perhaps. Innocence. Clarke knows she won’t have the luxury of drawing for leisure anytime soon, not when the world is ending, but in this moment with Bellamy, she can almost pretend.

They’re silent for a while, but it isn’t uncomfortable. (Things with Bellamy rarely are.) Then a shooting star streaks across the sky, and Bellamy says, “I finally figured out what I would wish for.”

“What?”

“I once said that if I saw a shooting star, I wouldn’t know what to wish for. Now I know. And it’s kind of a selfish wish, but I think all wishes are, you know?”

Clarke nods, because selfish wishes that will never come true are something she understands all too well.

Finally, Bellamy turns to look at her. His expression is just as awestruck as it was when he was looking at the stars, and Clarke feels a blush creeping up her neck. “I’d just wish for a simple, quiet life. We’d have come down to Earth and it  would have been uninhabited, or the Grounders would have left us alone. And we’d just make a little camp and live peaceful little lives. And then I’d meet you and you’d become my best friend even if we weren’t fighting for our lives all the time.” His eyes are honest, vulnerable, and then he says, “We’d be happy, Clarke. We wouldn’t be broken the way that we are. That’s my wish.”

She bites her lip, because the words are threatening to spill over: I think I’m in love with you and that scares me half to death.

Instead she says, “Sounds like a fantasy.”

Bellamy turns back to the night sky. “Anything’s possible on a night like this.”

(He’s looking at the stars. She’s still looking at him.)

Dear people who complain about the lack of Amedot content, there is a solution:

Make more Amedot content. 

That’s it. That’s all. 

Post your goofy headcanons. Write fics. Draw things. Request Amedot if you know of artists who take requests. Commission Amedot art if you can afford it. Write fics based on your fave art, or draw something from a fic you love. Do cosplay. Make gifs. Take photos of purple and green things next to each other that remind you of Amedot. Wear purple and green and take selfies. Make playlists. Make AMV’s. Post it all to tumblr in the appropriate tags. 

If you can’t do any of those things, support the people who do! Like and reblog the silly headcanons and add comments if you want. (In case it needed saying: you are always welcome to add to my silly headcanon posts, or use them as jump-off points for other content.) Leave kudos and comments on the fics you like. Like and reblog your fave Amedot art and send nice messages to your fave artists. And it doesn’t have to be some analytical masterpiece: one of my fave ao3 comments is intentionally-misspelled keyboard mashing, you guys. I took a screenshot, edited out the username and icon, and posted it to facebook to show to my non-fandom friends because I loved it so much. If someone makes something you like, tell them! They’re a lot more likely to make more!

I’m just as desperate for Amethyst and Peridot to even interact in new episodes as y’all are, okay.  

But the secret of fandom is that the the fun stuff we do in fandom, amongst ourselves, for each other, is always going to be the best part of being a fan. For real. I’ve been in fandom for, um, a long time. Don’t wait for canon to give you what you want–make it yourselves.

So pretty much everyday now someone is asking me how to break into animation, how to draw better, etc.
I appreciate the kindness but I’m also a regular working artist with crazy deadlines. So I’m going to post these old lecture notes even though most people have seen this garbage.

Also I’ve given tips on this post

http://robertryancory.tumblr.com/post/97575171733/any-tips-for-an-amateur-animator

I have to get back to drawing the cartoons you’ll watch next year, but just know if you seriously practice you will get better. It won’t happen fast, it takes several years, just trust the process of drawing challenging things daily, the jobs will come when you’re ready. No job is going to train you, they’re only interested in what services you provide. So become desirable by fine-tuning your skill set.
