Next part of my Mewtwo Strikes Back screenshot painty stuff. These things are going to be speedpaints (as in, I finish them in one day) to save my sanity and also make sure I actually finish more than one.
I’m still getting that hang of painting clouds and fire and backlit things, so this was good practice.

I really like Mewtwo. XD  I’ll be paying homage to him by doing a small series where I paint screenshots from the first movie in my style. This is my first one.
I know the liquid he was in was brown, but red stands out more so I went with that. And this is my first time ever painting glass! There are some things that I would do differently were I to paint this scene again, but I learned a lot, and that’s the important part!
I got my screenshots from pokemonscreenshots, and the screenshots themselves were taken by Triltaison.

So I really, really like video games, but I enjoy them for their storylines rather than gameplay. I get really bored by repetitive activities like level-building or city-building or strip mining, so even if I really like a game or franchise, I have a history of not finishing them. This is why I have been playing Pokemon FireRed for ten years. XD

do plan to finish it someday. I will! I played it earlier this year and made it to Cinnabar island. I think I’m currently lost somewhere in the Mansion.

The thing that I’ve always found disappointing about pokemon games is the lack of any real bonding mechanisms you can do with your team. I really like my main team, but I wanted to be able to do stuff with them other than throw them at other pokemon.

Which is why it was seriously mean of Drak to tell me about Pokemon X and Y and how you can pet your guys. I want so badly to pet my charizard! XD  Worse, he told me you can acquire a charmander early in the game. Worse still, he told me Mewtwo is in that game and hot damn it may take me twenty years, but I want me a Mewtwo. Also, Han told me it had an interesting plot, and I can get a jolteon, too.

I guess I’d better look at the 3DS. Maybe the price will put me off. I don’t need another game I might not finish. XD

I rarely do fanart, but I’m gearing up to do some fairly intense (for me) stuff. Mewtwo was my first love. Even fifteen years (!!) after the First Movie’s release, I’m still super fond of him.
I’m trying to pound him into my style before I take on my fanart. The top set was my first attempt… that uh, didn’t turn out so good. I used a Siamese as my head model, and uh, that looks a lot like a paski doesn’t it? XD  Whups.
I did a bit of tinkering, and am happier with the stuff near the bottom. I’ll fiddle around a bit more, then move onto the actual fanart.
My take on Mewtwo is very heavily inspired by both Han’s and Hibbary’s designs. Hibbary’s in particular has always been my Gold Mewtwo Standard.
Also, if you want to skip any Mewtwo spam, and I’m not sure how much there is going to be, you can tumblr savior “mewtwo” and/or “mewtwo strikes back”.

I haven’t felt like drawing for days and days, so I finally sat down and forced myself to do something easy— a ballpoint dog. I used Prairiegsds' Bosco as ref because he is gorgeous. He's looking at his Guy.
Took about an hour. I think the way my sketchbook tilted on the scanner shortened his back a little; in real life (on my page) he’s more rectangular.
I hope you like it, Laura!

Question with 1 note

Anonymous said: Do the various Paski subspecies have any stereotypes of, or prejudice against each other?

I knew I’d answered this earlier! I cover stereotypes at the bottom of this post, but I shall also copy-pasta the relevant paragraph:

They sure do [stereotype]! Being very cliquish creatures, they have a very strong “us vs. them” mentality, and have some nice negative stereotypes about non-conspecifics. Raatasira are bossy, snooty, reserved, cold, and ruthless. Pilasira are aggressive, challenging, unpredictable, and kind of dumb. Caandiki are shifty, sneaky, sniveling, and crafty. Binasinga are stand-offish, nasty, rude, and freaky. Humans are loud, crude, rude, ugly, and strange. Obviously almost no one actually fits these stereotypes.

Thank you for the question!

Why Struggling Is Key | DaisyPeel.com →

wyrddogs:

In Eastern cultures, it’s just assumed that struggle is a predictable part of the learning process. Everyone is expected to struggle in the process of learning, and so struggling becomes a chance to show that you, the student, have what it takes emotionally to resolve the problem by persisting through that struggle.

Got this article off of Naughty Dogge’s Facebook page.

This doesn’t pertain to just dog training.

I bought A Sea of Words, the dictionary/lexicon companion to Patrick O’Brian’s Aubrey-Maturin novels (the movie, Master and Commander, is not only one of my three favorite movies ever, it is also the entire reason my Rogue of Luther headworld exists), and I am super excited.

I’m only on page 37, and the book has already broken down watches by time periods, gone over a typical sailor’s day, briefly described the different types of officers, done a quick overview of the Napoleonic wars, and right now I’m in the middle of a description of exactly what surgeons were actually capable of doing for the injured (ie. not much). RoL is going to make a huge jump in accuracy; I am so stoked. I’ll also be buying O’Brian’s Men of War, which I had rented from the library and found stunningly useful in terms of naval tactics.

I tried reading Aubrey-Maturin probably ten years ago and couldn’t get into it— I found the writing style difficult— but I think I’ll try again. O’Brian wins the award for accuracy* when it comes to Age of Sail fiction, and I want a good feel for ship life.

Also Han and I have been watching the Hornblower miniseries and neither of us was even remotely prepared for how much we’d love it. Egads.

——————————

*In general, the fastest way to make me a fan of your work— be it a movie, book, or just headworld blather— is to have it be meticulously researched.
