new exciting ideas and things I learned while furnishing the stronghold
1. well SOMEONE left a plate of food under my luxury skiff and I’m pretty sure it wasn’t the droid
2. you can totally sit on furniture (type /chair), I’ll sit on the goddamn table if I want to YOU’RE NOT MY MOM
3. DINOSAUR ROOM but I kind of ran out of dinosaurs after the one so I put all my other pets in too. Tiny pet friend congregations hanging out!
I put all the gross pets in a separate corner so they can be gross friends together
Welcome home, Cipher Nine
holy fucking shit nan i swear to god this is amazing goodbye
/cries on ur chest THANK U
i like the way dave’s knows how to tie his shoes like srs
I know right I kept laughing at the idea of nobody ever teaching him and then people just thought it was the newest fashion fad and nobody ever corrected him ‘cause he’s the goddamn marquis (also thank you)
The Marquis of Athlum
This is my first attempt at art nouveau, featuring my favourite young lord, David Nassau. I’m including a close up of the centre filigree on the Gae Bolg because I drew it… and then covered it
what is it with this game and my compulsion to spend money?? Luckily I’ve got over 3 months worth of CC to burn on decorations and shit, but my fingers are already itching to click on the add more button. I really really really can’t afford that right now so HOW ABOUT NO, NAN?
that said I fell in love with the Kaas City flat and I’m going to spend all my credits and the CC that’s already in my account hueheuheu
I had no idea today was early access for the house thing in swtor… and since I literally forgot to unsub despite not playing for like 3 months I might as well go enjoy the benefits. Or at least log in and check it out
Here’s a thing I’ve had around in my head for a while!
Okay, so I’m pretty sure that by now everyone at least is aware of Steampunk, with it’s completely awesome Victorian sci-fi aesthetic. But what I want to see is Solarpunk – a plausible near-future sci-fi genre, which I like to imagine as based on updated Art Nouveau, Victorian, and Edwardian aesthetics, combined with a green and renewable energy movement to create a world in which children grow up being taught about building electronic tech as well as food gardening and other skills, and people have come back around to appreciating artisans and craftspeople, from stonemasons and smithies, to dress makers and jewelers, and everyone in between. A balance of sustainable energy-powered tech, environmental cities, and wicked cool aesthetics.
A lot of people seem to share a vision of futuristic tech and architecture that looks a lot like an ipod – smooth and geometrical and white. Which imo is a little boring and sterile, which is why I picked out an Art Nouveau aesthetic for this.
With energy costs at a low, I like to imagine people being more inclined to focus their expendable income on the arts!
Aesthetically my vision of solarpunk is very similar to steampunk, but with electronic technology, and an Art Nouveau veneer.
So here are some buzz words~
Tailors and dressmakers!
Stained glass window solar panels!!!
Education in tech and food growing!
Less corporate capitalism, and more small businesses!
Solar rooftops and roadways!
Communal greenhouses on top of apartments!
Electric cars with old-fashioned looks!
No-cars-allowed walkways lined with independent shops!
Renewable energy-powered Art Nouveau-styled tech life!
Can you imagine how pretty it would be to have stained glass windows everywhere that are actually solar panels? The tech is already headed in that direction! Or how about wide-brim hats, or parasols that are topped with discreet solar panel tech incorporated into the design, with ports you can stick your phone charger in to?
(((Character art by me; click the cityscape pieces to see artist names)))
i am so into this wow
sign me the fuck up
I want a solarpunk future. *_*
Well, if you have to throw them away anyway, you should see if you can get anything out of them. Just because you’ve improved doesn’t mean your earlier work was all garbage, and someone else may think it’s the best thing ever.
I just get so ashamed of ancient art, but I know you have a point. You and grandma both. One man’s trash right?
trying to convince grandma that the sun doesn’t shine out of my arse and none of my old art school paintings are worth selling is a fucking impossible feat, “at least let family take a look first” as if there’s anything but terrible flailing attempts at artistry in there
do you not understand the shame that would come with knowing your old awful artwork disgraced the walls of some poor soul’s home?
