commission set: a bunch of contortion feferis
another one of these sets completed! as per the usual drill, under the cut to make viewing optional<3 … There’s also a bonus stretching Pranze in there that I did afterwards, although I don’t imagine that’s actually something the commissionee would necessarily have ever asked for pfff.
But yes, without further fanfare, one set of assisted contortion feferis
Sometimes I draw peoples’ trolls….
Although they’re very different, I think that intentionally (but reasonably) testing the boundaries of fantroll designs can have very interesting results! So after a peek at Weirdfantrolls’ stuff, I drew a couple of still sprites, I hope that’s ok! c’:
> You see that blueblood as she sits near you, even if she doesn’t seem dangerous being of your size. She has a fleet uniform, of course, but you’re a Empire lawyer and you’re pretty faithful to the Alternian law. Besides those little secrets of you, everything you’ve done has been legal.
> Nothing to worry about then, right? Even if her presence makes you somehow nervous, like every trolls ever in this planet. You don’t like to have strangers around you and, well, she’s a stranger. Even if she seems like a friendly one, but appearance isn’t always something you can trust. You know it well after all, being a tiny serial killer with a passion for trolls’ flesh.
> in the middle of reading, you accidentally knock your shopping bags with one STRONG clumsy elbow- soon art supplies are rolling along the grass in the direction of the tealblood
> you edge forward and begin to scoop up the bits and pieces closest to you. What is the teal going to do? You can’t even tell if she’s noticed yet…
Just look at this tiny mexican dinosaur I bought today from some kids raising for charity. He has a flower on his side and a woogly-ass head and he’s so fucking delighted he cheers me every time I see him on the desk.
"cousin wingless! where have you been??"
what non-christians have to understand as far as the prince of egypt is concerned is that
yes it has christian overtones and themes
because its a bible story
its not claiming to be historically accurate, however
and it shouldn’t be like….necessarily AWKWARD to…
Just gonna pop in and say yes it’s a breathtaking film gosh<3
I guess the things that make me personally feel a wee bit uncomfortable about it are-
- as far as I’m aware, no other contemporary religion has had that much money and effort sunk into a movie about their religious texts, and frankly I imagine that a lot of people in america particularly would consider themselves utterly scandalised if there was, say, a blockbuster movie about a muslim prophet from the koran. (correct me if I’m wrong though I’m honestly happy to get answers/feedback especially on something interesting like this!)
-Particularly considering that it’s essentially a movie that, while there is a moral tale in it about slavery=bad, basically results in the non-christians being culled en-mass in heaven-fuelled genocide. If that were done by any other religion, I doubt it would have been allowed, historical and mythical or not.
So what makes it ok if it’s christian, is my thoughts I guess?
Don’t get me wrong though as a piece of art I love the prince of egypt.
I made this as an attempt as a desktop bg, because I like making my own.. it’s a bit of a psychedelic colour-splurge, so I’ll probably get around to making another eventually, but heck, this was fun at least! It’s based on a bunch of fantrolls that I love, some mine and some not<3
I decided to take a picture of my mini spider adventure after all, under the cut is a terrible quality webcam photo of my surprise intruder on a piece of aquarium piping that I was able to shoo it onto and pull up. Seems to fit the criteria- it’s blackish, smooth, was perfectly fine in my tank for hours and hours and has an air pocket over it’s abdomen that is still glistening a little in in the photo
it’s living in the garden now
also you get to see me pulling a stupid face while I try not to touch the spider or get it on my computer.
THE PROTOCOL IS DOCUMENTATION especially seeing as it’s unlikely to move if it’s a nice habitat. I’m actually really jelly I’ve never seen a real one :O or just y’know, get someone else to take it out for you
hhhh part of me is fascinated and the other part of me is completely beside itself with distress
after some struggle since the spider didn’t seem too keen on being removed, I have gotten it out of the tank. My general deal with spiders is I think they’re beautiful and fascinating but there’s something about the weird thrashing motion of their legs that literally gives me palpitations.
swimming spiders apparently counts sob.
I guess this can go in the garden pond????
it’s like my tank will support any like BUT triops
WHAT’S THE PROTOCOL FOR SUDDEN DIVING BELL SPIDERS
