My favorite moment when playing FFXIV for the first time was seeing the men in the same ridiculous subligars as the women.
World of Warcraft
Final Fantasy XIV
groot using…frenzy plant? aha who knows i just wanted to paint these two again
i originally wanted to color this picture much more simply, but then decided that what is summer vacation free time good for if not rendering the hell out of things
Adorable sketch commissions I got from contramonster a while ago and given permission to post. Lookit the cuuuute bbies aaa <3
First, is an idea that my roommate has been bugging me about for weeks to explain Horatio’s sudden buffness, Amm0 keeps stuffing him with more straw.
Second is the Cope duo, Vinzen and Cienna with his hat on
Thank you so much for these Amber, I love them! :DDD
I was bestowed a drawing challenge to illustrate Horatio excited about something.
Amm0: So I was thinking about taking a trip away from the city-
Horatio: YESSSS!!! YES! YES! THERE IS A GOD!
Amm0: Well I mean…just a day trip
Horatio: THERE IS A GOD FOR A DAY!

Huh, guess I can paint.
"What a bunch of a-holes."
Two Best Friends Play, and Guardians of the Galaxy crossover fan art featuring Liam as Gamora, Matt as Star-lord, Zach as Rocket, Pat as Drax, and Woolie as Groot. this took a little bit, but i’m fairly satisfied with how it came out, I hope you guys like it!

So I took a look at this video game (I know, I know) called Team Fortress 2. Literally without question, the most misogynistic piece of brain-rotting filth to dare call itself a form of entertainment. How so? There’s nine different playable characters, and not one of them is a female. Last time I…
No but here’s the thing: not every game needs to shoehorn women into it.
I am a woman. I like playing female characters when I get the chance (so long as they’re not whiny stereotypes or “HAHA I AM A STRONG WOMAN SO TAKE YOUR FRILLS AND SHOVE ‘EM”).
You would still be complaining if Team Fortress 2 had female characters, because its characters are based on stereotypes. All Australians are supergeniuses that are ridiculously buff and drink a lot. Bread attacked people.
Miss Pauling is bad-ass and would kill just about anyone; I give exactly enough craps about your post to make the reply I am writing, and no more.
I understand that this entire post is just a huge troll, especially give the whole “PSA: Just stay the fuck away from video games. Even seemingly-innocent games like Tetris are full of anti-female subliminal rape messages.” on your blog, but honestly I’d like to thank you for giving me an excuse to moan about this particular issue.
SAY IT WITH ME: NOT EVERYTHING NEEDS TO SHOEHORN WOMEN INTO IT TO BE EQUAL.
Take your flat token female characters and shove ‘em.
The reason there are no female mercs is because all the women are too busy being in positions of authority to stoop to their level.
I mean think about it - all the mercs answer to the Admin and Ms. Pauling. The most physically powerful man we’ve seen - Saxton Hale - also answers to the Admin, and looks up to Mags with nothing but respect and admiration. The most economically powerful men we’ve seen - Redmond and Blutarch - are a pair of squabbling idiots whose feud is kept in a perpetual stalemate by the Admin.
Hell even if we look at the mercs themselves, almost every one of them answers to a woman; Scout is a mama’s boy, Sniper calls his mum regularly and sends postcards to her even though it means he has to deal with his dad. Heavy’s sisters ambushed the goddamn KGB and slaughtered them like pigs. Demo’s mum has lost both eyes and she still commands enough authority over him to have him working three jobs on top of being a mercenary. And of course they all answer to Ms. Pauling and the Admin and respect their authority above all else.
So yeah what I really love about TF2 canon is it pretty well satirizes the pervasive idea of a “boy’s club” in the FPS genre and in gaming as a whole. Nearly 50% of gamers are female - there are female programmers, female character designers, writers, mappers, modelers, the TF2 comics themselves are written, drawn and colored by two women. The women of TF2 may not be as loud and obviously ‘involved’ as the men but they’re just as important. And though they do their work in the background, it’s only because the ones in the foreground are idiots.
A harpy character of mine, really proud of how this turned out, took a lot more time then usual but I wanted something that looked like a finished piece.
This is Shadow the Macaw.
He preened me in my Davesprite cosplay.
THE FADE TO BLACK OH MY GOD I LITERALLY CAN’T BREATHE RIGHT NOW
Got around to getting some color on these ladies, now I can move onto some of the men
