De-stress doodle of Slaine Troyard from Aldnoah.Zero (probably one of my favourite shows this season).
Slaine is absolutely a d o r a b l e, and I wanted to draw him with his dere/blushing expression, but the whole time I could only think of him being cane-whipped every episode…
Sorry to keep posting about figures,
but omfg, they’re making a BLUE Nightwing:
Arturo is a 29-year-old male polar bear currently living in Argentina’s Mendoza Zoo. He is suffering in 40C (104F) heat in an enclosure that has just 20 inches of water for him to swim in and has as a consequence been displaying worrying behavior.
Please sign this petition or at least spread the word in order to have Arturo transferred to a zoo in Canada which has better facilities for an animal that is used to polar conditions.
sign this or die
arturo makes me want to punch the fuck out of whoever’s in charge of zoo regulations like what the fuck how do you let this shit happen
hear this: the canada zoo was ready and more than willing to take arturo but they could not, because canada needs documentation to receive foreign animals. the documentation is simply three years of veterinary records. el zoo de mendoza couldn’t provide that because it’s been more than three years since they checked this TWENTY NINE YEARS OLD POLAR BEAR WHAT THE FLYING FUCK
Winner the polar bear died in 2012 because of a heat wave that hit buenos aires during christmas, and he was expected to endure 50°C without even a flipping AC…
I’m so so so sooo sad for these animals, especially because I saw them both in person and that is just no way to live.
I don’t know if signing the petition will actually help because as I said they don’t have the vet’s papers, but at least it’ll help make more noise about zoos here.
At last, some time to actually draw something! I’ve been itching to draw some Free! fanart lately. Season 2 has been so good, it’s been so painful…
Anyway this is some Matsuoka sibling hair swap, inspired by episode 3.
Also while I’m at it, this is apparently PrototypeZ’s 1/6 Nightwing resin model kit. *-*
So Damian’s getting an actual scale figure…

DID YOU GUYS KNOW THIS WAS HAPPENING CUZ I SURE DIDN’T.
Well that’s unfortunate, but it doesn’t change the fact that I (and many other tumblr artists) have had these kinds of comments either in the tags of our artwork or directly said to our faces… even to the point of calling us racist or “typical whites” when a LOT of us are POC… which, you know, shouldn’t even matter because just because someone’s white and/or cis doesn’t mean they’re racist or LGBT-phobic by default.
So no, I’m not trying to make fun of anyone. Rather, this is a reflection of me being fed up with this kind of stuff happening over and over again and I’m just venting a little.
DC seems to be trying to go towards a better direction and that’s great; it’s about damn time. But every time I hear them refer to something as “targeted for girls” I get a bit uncomfortable because all they really need to do is tone down the hyper-masculine/misogynistic stuff in existing series to be more friendly to female audiences.
PR-ing something as “for girls” still segregates the material, implying that it’s only something girls will like. And I’m sure everyone, females included, have very different ideas about what “girls like”, and whether they find that appealing.
Like, when you read a good book, you don’t think about whether that book is written for male or female audiences (unless you’re doing an analysis on it)… it’s just a good book. We just want good stories. Why is that so difficult?
# Tagged: ugh i'm sorry for the sudden rant. just the more i see it on my dash the more i cringe at it.
