My full name’s as mixed of origin as I am. Swahili first, Irish then French.
Mother originally wanted to give me a traditional Irish name. I think I was originally going to be a Chelsea or something? But my Dad intervened at the last minute, so she gave me my middle name, Cailey.
I dislike online classes.
I really do.
Expanding on this, I especially have trouble being responsible with an online course if it’s rather difficult. It’s odd how despite most of my social interactions the past decade has been computer based, I lacked any motivation to really utilize that in this electronic classroom.
Granted, I’ve never been one to look for help but this experience has helped me understand myself a bit more in that I prefer direct engagement with a physical presence in a class.
I’m seeing Spider talk appearing on my dash.
I do my best to release animals that enter the house rather then squish them. Every living thing has a spark of life contained in it and being responsible for blowing out that life bothers me a little, even if it’s a small fly. That’s my personal philosophy to avoid killing critters if I can. I will respect an animal that is especially dangerous and take all precautions to removing it from my vicinity while reducing my risks of it hurting me but to just chop it to pieces and discard it seems too brutal and simple of a solution for me.
I’ll only kill an animal if a person is in mortal danger where there’s no other option but if they’re just wandering into my home and they’re easy to avoid and release, I prefer to just let them on their merry way.
This is the Sorceress from Vanillaware’s Dragon’s Crown. Lately, this character has been getting a lot of heat, becoming the new icon of sexism in video games. Are you offended by this character? Do you find it sexist? Well guess what, it’s not.
Sweet pearls, Batman! A well worded stance on the subject approaches!
I honestly wasn’t too sure what to make of these characters of this game after seeing people get up in arms over them. I agree that they all looked ridiculous to me (Though I thought the Amazon Chick with the axe was kinda a bamf with those awesome, rippling muscles). I admit, I’m turned off by the t&a pose I see the females in a lot. Still like the art!
I feel like it’s all intentionally this terribleand I find it humorous more than anything.

It’s limiting and restricting! New tools come about and if someone wants to take them to experiment and try them out to their fullest extent then great.
If someone else isn’t that into it and prefers traditional methods of creating, then great.
Everyone just needs to keep making amazing things and I’ll be ohk with it.
It is ohk if you use textures on your digital paintings.
It is ohk if you use photographic elements that are painted over in your images.
It is ohk if you use patterns and custom bushes to speed up the process.
So long as it’s not obvious, then who cares?
If I’m a cheat for making shortcuts to quicken my output, even though I make my own shortcuts and maintain quality with my images, then I suppose I am one.
So long as the end product comes out the way you intended without infringing someone else’s work, then who cares?
