Everything you need to know about the four upcoming lunar eclipses here.
Hey everyone! Just a friendly reminder that the total lunar eclipse is tonight! The earth’s shadow will completely cover the moon, making it appear red - which is why some people are calling it the blood moon. Find out when is the best time to view it where you are!
If life was an RPG (Persona, specifically), this would be my party. From left to right, it’s me, madam-buffalo, luffyy, and bumrushblitz. I decided to draw everyone in Persona Q style. I gave us elements, too, but I’m still working out what arcana everyone would be. My scanner didn’t really do this justice, but it was still fun to draw~

figure 2: women’s head designs can be generated by the same methods, they don’t have to all look very nearly the same
Some food for thought for drawing women and avoiding drawing a single female face. Too often artists seem to be afraid to give women big noses or lines or other distinguishing features, and we end up with the same face on all the characters. I’ve been browsing a lot of genderswap art lately and I’ve noticed that when male characters with large noses, thin faces, wrinkles, or other features get genderswapped, they tend to end up with small noses, round faces, and no wrinkles, and they no longer look distinct (they also look much younger than the original). So, just some references and a reminder that women’s faces have all sorts of different features, and you don’t need to just have small cute features with no wrinkles to have a character look female.

fucking what is the deal with video games having that shit like “whoa looks like you’ve been playing for literally 10 hours maybe its time to take a break” like fucking dont tell me how to live my life ive been doing this shit for 20 years youre too late im beyond help
10 hours? In Link Between Worlds you get a weathervane screeching at you after 40 MINUTES. It’s awful.
The Game Cube can be hit with a sledgehammer and work just fine. The Nintendo DS was specifically designed to be able to survive a 1.5 meter (five foot) drop onto solid concrete without breaking, and one of the company’s bigwigs wouldn’t let it go past the design phase until the design team could guarantee it could survive the drop at least 10 times. In fact, Nintendo products have such a reputation for being impossible to break through normal means that they spawned the term “Nintendium”—an all-purpose phrase given to pieces of technology that survive extreme punishment. For example, take the Gulf War Game Boy, an original Game Boy console that survived having a freaking bomb dropped on it.
Nintendo never advertises their products as being durable, they don’t brag about their Game Boys being bomb-proof or their consoles being tough enough to survive being hit by a car. They just expect their customers to be human and include features to prepare for that humanity. While other companies decide that they’re nice by including a cover to protect the screen of the $600 phone you just bought in case you drop it, Nintendo just builds a device that can survive being dropped in the first place and doesn’t make a big deal about it. Because that’s how a real company does business.
I dropped my 3DS down a flight of concrete stairs and it just got a little scratched on the corners.
