This is the character ‘Boss Wolf’ from Kung Fu Panda 2. He’s been missing an eye since the first of the movie, but for those keen on details of how he lost it, he features in the flashbacks as well. In the bottom 3 gifs you can see that Po’s dad smashes him in the face and he drops his signature hammer.
The amazing Laura Jansen in her newest faun cosplay creation all hand made, and worked on by her. Truly an inspiration! Check out her FB, She documents her progress through most of her costumes and they are basically tutorials.
Okay so I followed this video about foreshortening and…
Sycra. I love you so much for making this video.
YOU GOTTA BE FUCKING SHITTING ME
Two character concepts from a story I’m stitching together out of two old ones. It doesn’t even have a working title right now but its basically in an alternate modern-day where magic use is a rare genetic trait.
“The U.S. government, after forcing magic-users onto reservations crosses the line with new taxes and sanctions and an uprising forces a stand-off between power magic users and armed forces. Each side solicits help from two of the most powerful witches in the entire world.”
I want the story to mainly focus on these two witches, their powers (which I still need to work out), and why they take the respective sides that they do:
Bordeux Singh is an Indian-French citizen who’s got a huge ego and a large main-stream following, as she does many late-night and morning talk show interviews. She takes the side of the American government in working to subduing the rebelling magic users.
Rudolf Rosenthal is a Canadian citizen who’s much more shy and reserved and despite her tattoos, scars, and clothing is fairly meek and somewhat shy. She’s only written a few books on magic but otherwise doesn’t like the attention. She takes the side of the antagonized American magic users.
Josephine Baker, later known as ‘Bronze Venus’, ‘Black Pearl’ and ‘Créole Goddess’ was born in America in 1906 and later moved to France to become a singer, dancer, and actress. She was the first African-American woman to star in a major motion picture, and became famous worldwide.
Though she grew up as a maid in wealthy white households she eventually became an exotic dancer in France, famously appearing in next to no clothing, and became a French citizen in 1937.
Ernest Hemingway referred to Baker as ‘the most sensational woman anyone ever saw’ and she received approximately 1500 marriage proposals in her life time. She became a muse for Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Pablo Picasso, and Christian Dior. She had a variety of exotic pets including a cheetah named Chiquita, a chimpanzee named Ethel, a pig named Albert, a snake named Kiki, a goat, a parrot, parakeets, fish, three cats, and seven dogs.
When WWII broke out, Baker became a volunteer spy for France, and assisted the French Resistance by smuggling messages written in invisible ink on sheet music. She made great efforts to aid those in danger of enemy attack, sent Christmas presents to French soldiers, and smuggled information she gathered in Spain back to France by pinning notes containing the information on the inside of her underwear. She was awarded the Medal of Resistance with Rosette and later named a Chevalier of the Legion of Honour.
Baker also aided many civil rights movements by refusing to perform to segregated audiences and storming out of a club in Manhattan with actress Grace Kelly after she was refused service. She worked with the NAACP and spoke at a Washington march alongside Martin Luther King Jr. as the only official female speaker. Baker was actually asked by Martin Luther King Jr.’s widow to take his place as leader of the American Civil Rights Movement, but Baker declined on the grounds her twelve adopted children ‘were too young to lose their mother’.
Baker died in 1975, four days after her final show, attended by such names as Mick Jagger, Shirley Bassey, and Liza Minnelli.
Oh and she was queer and had a relationship with Frida Kahlo. All around badass.
I’d like a movie about her life too, please.
it has been awhile get this awesome lady back on my dash
