Merry (belated) Christmas to everyone! Thank you all for being so patient with me *faint*. I’m lucky I survived the last few months. It’s been at least 15 degrees beyond insane in my neck of the woods.
See the original here
Also, might post thumbs of the individual pictures. Not sure.
Also posting this here- my concepts for the pony version of Death (for the My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic universe.) And yes, I am insane! How nice of you to notice!
Just a little sketch I’ve been saving because I’m too busy to draw anything new. (Opening night of “A Christmas Carol” was tonight! WOHOOOOO!) Might have a few more stashed away somewhere. If I can find them, I’ll post them :D
Done by the lovely mirisha! My ponysona Sapphire Star is the one on the bottom left. I love the way she drew her! Also, rinachiba’s ponysona Nightingale on the top right :D
Just a note to my followers; I am still around, but I’m doing two musicals, and my boss recently got a few more gallery and museum shows than usual, so I haven’t had the time to be on Tumblr much. Plus, I have a backlog of commissions. I still plan on posting art and such here, but I’ll be a lot slower than before. However, I will still repost here when I can. Thanks for hanging with me and being so patient!
Um…for the record, I don’t know why that ‘twinkle-twinkle little ****’ thing is there…. But I don’t use that word O_O
The big words are totally accurate, though XD
Gundam Wing: Episode 29 - The Heroine of the Battlefield
I always like this scene. It’s a weird mix of humor, seriousness, and other emotions all rolled into one. This scene is remembered a lot for the pineapple Heero’s using to play with dogs, but there’s a lot more to it and that’s what really makes me adore it.
A lot of what makes me adore it is the fact that Quatre is really contemplating how useful ‘kindness’ is in a war. And throughout these episodes (especially this one and the ones preceding it after Quatre’s Zero experience) is that Quatre is having a personal battle about his kindness and his dedication to the cause. He wants both, but at the same time, the emotions are so taxing. And it becomes obvious during this time that he views Heero as sort of ‘calm in the storm’ for him. And a lot of character growth and development happens for both characters between these episodes.
Going on a tangent, back on subject…
So when Heero is mentioning that the dogs can sense kindness (and thus seem naturally attracted to Quatre), Quatre asks Heero if kindness is necessary to fighting in a war.
Heero doesn’t sugar coat it either, up front stating that it doesn’t have a place in combat if you are acting truly efficient. But then Heero adds that it’s ‘probably’ something you need the rest of the time. The fact that he states ‘probably’ in a sentence that shouldn’t require the word at all is pretty telling of his feelings about the matter.
But its a sweet moment that Heero clarifies further to Quatre that they aren’t fighting. Meaning Quatre should feel free to express his true nature and his kindness. He understands that Quatre likely feels guilty and is lost in his thoughts about whether or not kindness is something even worth having when it leads you to make hasty decisions and/or mistakes, that lead to pain and heartache.
And the smile at the end is one of Quatre’s ways of taking a step towards accepting that thought and that he can continue being a good soldier and keeping his kindness intact; without compromising himself.
Testify! *waves hands*
