so this new gen Hogwarts thing has been eating away at my mind and i did a thing
she’s a ravenclaw and she’s into historical revisionism and writes lengthy and intelligent articles for the zine. she’s also into mixing ‘alternative potions’, and plays as a chaser for the ravenclaw quidditch team.
she hates how history of magic is taught at Hogwarts though, its all books written by crusty old white pureblood dudes (“there isn’t a single non-human author in the syllabus, don’t tell me that doesn’t say something.”).
this is beautiful oh my god
so i got a smartphone
and now my greatest fear is that i will die and someone will find my phone and look at the sketchbook app and it will be nothing but horribly distorted escher girls fan art
One more update for today: This is a piece I did for Crossed Genres’ CG Magazine 2.0 Anthology. (Well, technically it’s a personal piece I’d been working on that I finished up for them to use). An adventurer makes a discovery in an ancient temple!
Original piece inspired by beauty and the beast.
Except then I was like “HEY WHAT IF THE BEAST WAS A FISHMONSTER”
“AND WHAT IF BELLE WAS A KNIGHT????”
and things just kind of snowballed from there.
BONUS: including a shot of the image with the painting layers turned off because I find the partially colored base sketch hilarious to look at in comparison.
It was too damn gorgeous.
Michonne/this weird cat thing is my new otp
Women Watching Stars (1936) at the National Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo
Ota Chou Women Observing Stars (1936). Ink on paper.
This really compositionally interesting because you can see the women are in traditional kimono with the short bobbed hair. This telescope depicted here happens to be the one at the National Museum of Nature and Science. So all and all they are modern because of their hair and are learning/inquisitive science. All very modern but still reserves of the traditional because of their clothing. TALK ABOUT MIXED MESSAGING FOR THE MODERN WOMAN!!! Though for the record most Japanese women by this time and especially after the 1924 quake would have had experiences with Western clothes and hairstyles. Fun Fact:This was made into a stamp in the 90’s.
