Please, “Mr. Anime Fan21” was my father. Call me “Turbonerd.”
Oh, right. I said I’d throw this up. That was like a month ago?
My hate for Keran’s hair prompted these slight redesigns, but Vedrana’s somehow ended up being a bigger change. Oh well. Anyways, the top is the first ever drawing of Keran, which is also the first ever drawing for Experience Boost. Then her old/first banner image (I’ve now replaced all the banners on the site as well), some sketches for the new hair, the turnaround for the new hair, and the new/improved hair from a comic.
I was originally going to introduce the new hairs with a couple of strips where Keran learns about in-game barbershops, but I couldn’t find a good joke to justify it. Really just glad to be rid of that triangle wig she was wearing.
These are so cool
so I just got World of Thedas and I’m dying because all the months have these cool names but then August is just “August”
Point of trivia: The list of months in the WoT was lifted from a really old document that Ben Gelinas found in our online wiki. How old? Well, this dated back to an early time when Andraste was named “Augusta”. I don’t recall why we changed her name, but the month was essentially named after her… and now isn’t.
It’s actually the Party Stone.

like tbh i feel like my problem with the “dark and gritty!!” trend in modern stories is this
there’s this idea in our culture that cynicism is realistic? that only children believe in happy endings, that people are ultimately selfish and greedy and seeing with clear eyes means seeing the world as an awful place
that idealism is— easy, i guess. butterflies and sunshine and love are easy things to have in your head.
but i’ve known since i was fifteen that idealism— faith in humanity— optimism— is the most difficult thing in the entire world.
i constantly struggle to have faith in humanity, because it’s really, really easy to lose it. it’s easy to look at the news and go “what were you expecting? of course humans behave this way.” it’s easy to see the world and go “ugh, there’s no hope there.” and the years when i believed that were easy. miserable— but easy.
it is hard work to see the good in people. it is hard work to hope. it is hard work to keep faith and love and joy and appreciation for beauty in my daily life.
and when moviemakers and tv producers and writers go “omg!!! all characters are selfish and act poorly and don’t love each other, nothing ever happens that is happy or good, that’s so much more realistic, that’s so much more adult”
no, it’s not
it’s the most childish thing i can imagine.
Speedtrial, 01:15:00 … slightly better than last time.
I was watching clouds one day, and I thought, “that one looks like a rabbit-squirrel.” GUYS THIS IS WHAT GOES ON IN MY HEAD.
I have no idea what I was thinking with the colors. :D
And this is what accordingly goes on in my head.
I’m trying to put together a PAX South arm of the PAX Pokemon League and I made some art for it. Have a Sandshrew playing with an Ekans.
I think about pokemon in non-battle situations a lot. Like pokemon who have been trained/raised to be helpers and assistants than to be battle partners.
Pokemon visiting hospitals to cheer patients up like dogs and cats do. Or ones that help kids learn to read, speak, swim, go through therapy?! Even pokemon who’s abilities help owners with specific disabilities?!
I love thinking of pokemon outside of battle situations.
no you’re crying shut up
