Map of the World by Natural Skin Color
i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening
actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d.
THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.

Me when I fight enemies in video games.
I feel like this is the GIF I have been waiting for to best sum up my boss fight strategy for every game ever. And I’m not sure which cat I am.

"At the time of her passing (100 years old), Sheilah was working on a new "Little Golden Book" for Random House - illustrating The Nutcracker - and working digitally, with a Wacom tablet in Photoshop"
Such an inspiration, such an example ….
woah woah woah this art is pushing all my buttons
Always one of my favourite illustrators.
I liked the Citadel DLC so I decided to draw more of it. Some Citadel and ME3 spoilers obviously.
More on the way and will be under my tag citadel.
I dreamed about an alternate timeline of Frozen, where apparently Hans was never a villain, and it was kind of wonderful.
In the dungeon, he came to see Elsa, told her Anna hadn’t returned, asked her to bring back summer. She said couldn’t, and begged to be let go. And he looked at her for a long…
keep going!! As much as Hans bugs
(me)everyone I really wouldn’t mind reading some ooc of him, just to explore the person he could have been! Please keep going!
But it was just a dream! I can’t keep going unless my brain is nice enough to pick it back up, and when does that ever happen, seriously? I’d love that, too, though. I can imagine Elsa telling him where she last saw them, and Hans would be like, “What do you mean ‘them’?” And she’d hem and haw and say, “Anna was kind of hanging out with this snowman and a reindeer (and a handsome guy), I’m sure she’s fine!”
And as they pick their way through the woods, Elsa would ask him if he really loved her sister, and he’d confess that mostly it was nice to have someone to talk to, who actually wanted to get to know him, and perhaps he was a little hasty with the proposal.
He’d say, “Surprisingly, having twelve brothers does not guarantee you twelve friends.” And Elsa would look at him like he was a puppy with a broken leg and he’d be kind of humiliated and try to change the subject.
Aaand in the end, Anna would still fall in love with Kristoff, she would still sacrifice herself for her sister, still break the spell, everyone could be friends, nobody gets punched, Sitron and Sven could pal around together eatin’ carrots, and Elsa could have a really handsome, charming boyfriend who was secretly a total dork, HAPPILY EVER AFTER, JUST LET ME HAVE THIS OKAY
No lie, this is exactly what I thought was gonna happen before I saw the movie and in my heart of hearts, I’m still a little disappointed it didn’t. Anna would’ve found someone strong and steady to keep her grounded and Elsa could’ve had someone fun and spontaneous to help her take chances. Neat and tidy with a little bow on top, just the way I like it.
