I’m finally learning how to use toonboom harmony in class!  It’s definitely a challenge learning the ropes of this program, but I think I’m finally starting to get the hang of it. Here’s my midterm!

caligula had anime eyes

wait romans painted their marble sculptures
it looks like a cheap theme park ride mascot

yep
here’s a statue of Augustus

and here’s a reproduction of the statue with the colors restored 


i honestly think that what we consider the height of sculpture in all of Western civilization being essentially the leftover templates of gaudy pieces of theme park shit to be evidence of the potential merit of found art

"I tried coloring it and then I ruined it"

And you know what the funniest part is? The paint didn’t just wear off over time. A bunch of asshole British historians back in the Victorian era actually went around scrubbing the remaining paint off of Greek and Roman statues - often destroying the fine details of the carving in the process - because the bright colours didn’t fit the dignified image they wished to present of the the cultures they claimed to be heirs to. This process also removed visible evidence of the fact that at least some of the statues thus stripped of paint had originally depicted non-white individuals.
Whenever you look at a Roman statue with a bare marble face, you’re looking at the face of imperialist historical revisionism.
(The missing noses on a lot of Egyptian statues are a similar deal. It’s not that the ancient Egyptians made statues with strangely fragile noses. Many Victorian archaeologists had a habit of chipping the noses off of the statues they brought back, then claiming that they’d found them that way - because with the noses intact, it was too obvious that the statues were meant to depict individuals of black African descent.)

Sorry, I keep reblogging this over and over, the last comment is unbelievable. Wow.

Pokémon protagonists with their lower halves replaced by their counterparts of the opposite gender.

Here is the source for the male protagonists done by @urizanejyoutyu.

I thought I’d give a go at it too so I did a 2nd one for the female protagonists.

Treehouse, Redmond, USA, by Steve Rondel http://goo.gl/B4RMuF

Steve Rondel’s children grew up before he could finish this exeptional treehouse. He started it 20 years ago when his oldest son was 5. Now he is looking for grandchildren to give him an excuse to push on.”

The Takeover - Script by Jared Throne / Art by Xulia Vicente

I’ve been working on this comic for quite some months now, can’t believe we’ve finished it. It’s the first time I work with a script writer, and jaredthrone has been a super cool mate. We both enjoyed it, and I’m glad to have put time and calm on it, that’s why the result is a bit different to my usual stuff.

Anyway, we just hope you all enjoy it as much as we did :) Any feedback is welcome!

someone told me once that “blink blink” is cat for “I love you”

I’m sure this is total bullshit but i choose to believe it.

cats are hardcore man. instead of going, “i love you,” or whatever, they’re just like, “YOU ARE NEITHER MY ENEMY NOR MY PREY AND I THUS ALLOW YOU TO BE IN MY UNGUARDED PRESENCE.”

Also, this is why cats will apparently unerringly home in on the person in the room who is afraid of cats.

Humans who are afraid of something tend to blink slowly and look away. Cats read that as “He wants to be my friend.”

Okay, last SpiderVerse post. It’s out today, and I just wanted y’all to see Ian’s colors on the exosuit, and get a look at our very own spider-girl/mech-pilot, Peni Parker.

Enjoy!

The miniature crown worn by Queen Victoria for her official Diamond Jubilee Portrait in 1897 was designed to be worn over a veil, something the queen adopted after the death of her husband, Prince Albert. Although the crown contains almost 1,200 diamonds, it measures only nine centimeters by ten centimeters, and has a physical lightness that made it the queen’s favorite in the last 30 years of her life.
