[8bit] Littleroot Town | Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire
Ahhh, I usually enjoy the hometown themes very much in Pokemon games. They’re always so nice and calming. And Littleroot was a quick and easy cover to make~
On to the next 8bit!
that moment of shrieking, unending agony when a new villager destroys your landscaping with their stupid new house
This is Sniper’s right thumb I’ve seen in various sfm photos. Did he hurt his thumb or something? His thumbnail is all black but the rest of his fingers/nails are fine looking.
His sniper rifle has a manually operated bolt action on the right-hand side. The bruise (a subungual haematoma) is caused by trying to reload too fast (too many people wanting him dead on the battlefield?) and getting his thumb caught in the sliding mechanism.

Watch how his right hand moves to pull back the handle, unload the spent cartridge case, and slide the fresh round into the breech:

The bolt-action mechanism looks something like this (source: wikipedia) - it is allegedly quite painful to get your fingers pinched in it:
That’s Valve for you - completely ridiculous canon, perfectly detailed character designs.
One time I went on a date to the Olive Garden and I ordered the seafood pasta. I open up one of the muscle oyster things and low and behold there is a tiny crab in there. I freak out and think it’s the craziest thing ever. I keep talking to my then girlfriend about this tiny crab. How hilariously wonderful it is that the little dude crawled in there in the ocean only to become a freaky little part of my pasta. She is very unamused and clearly wants me to shut the hell up about this tiny crab and be a normal person. She is 0% excited about the tiny crab.
The waitress comes over eventually and is like ‘hey how’s the meal?’ and I’m like ‘awesome, but you gotta check this out! i found a tiny crab in here!’ and waitress freaks out and thinks its awesome. And she is like ‘can I take this to show everyone else?’ and I’m all like ‘hells yeah.’ So she does and everyone else that works there thinks it’s awesome.
Girlfriend SUPER annoyed.
Mare in the Moon
"I am the Princess of the Night, thus it is my duty to watch over your dreams."
Luna is my favorite pony; mainly because of her association with night, solitude and space! I tried to convey that through this piece; the moon might have been a place of banishment, but I feel it could also be a place of retreat for Luna. Just another quiet night relaxing under the stars. She might be a bit socially awkward, but maybe she just needs people to show her the way.
I took the liberty to give Luna a special “Space-Kid” set of accessories, and made them look like black crystals with cyan highlights. It’s very Tron-esque, but it’s not meant to be electronic. Anyway, it’s a little personal touch.
Now before anyone says “the moon doesn’t work like that”, to that I say “Hah!”

I slowly try post art a little more now!
Art from the Frozen Storybook AppI downloaded the Frozen Storybook App on my phone and thought I would share the pictures from the story. (They also used screenshots to tell the story but those have been floating around everywhere, so I only uploaded the pictures.) The ice border indicates if it’s Elsa or Anna telling the story!
Operation Sniper Friendship: activate Plan B
