Ok so more muscles drawing practice… and every time I draw Gan Ning I am reminded of the reason why I don’t draw him and his hotness more often (fucking tattoos omfg) I couldn’t decide what version of his hair and tattoos to draw so I, uhm, experimented a bit. I am mad because the tattoos cover many of the muscle lines I worked on for hours XD
Suikoden - Blue Lightning Flik(Source: Genso Suikoden Kensou Shinsho Guide Book and the Love Sickness fanbooks by Wolfgung)
Found some rare Suikoden II concept arts here. I asked about the book, the ISBN or something, but as they say in the source blog the name on the front only says “GENSOSUIKODEN II ART WORKS” and it also says “not for sale”… apparently it came with certain copies of Suikoden II in Japan.According to theirstar “Konami simply call it a promotional booklet (販促用小冊子).It has no ISBN (…) Its listed release date (17/12/1998, the same as Suikoden II) seems to confirm this -that they came with the game-“
I know asking for a Suikoden anime may be too much but KONAMI CAN YOU AT LEAST CONTINUE THE MANGAS TAT
So cute >w<
The world needs more of this *^*
MOAR MOAR MOAR

THE BEGINNINGS OF KAWAII
No, no, you have no idea. It actually IS the beginning of the whole so-called “kawaii culture”. And it started because girls started using mechanical pencils, which provided fine handwriting. After being banished (more precisely, during the 80s), this kind of writing started being used in products like magazines and make-up. And, during this time, icons we usually associate with the whole kawaii industry (like the characters from Sanrio) came to life too.
And what many people don’t realize is that this subculture was born as a way for young girls to express themselves in their own way. And it was also used as something against the adult life and the traditional culture, often seen as dull and boring and oppressive. By embracing cuteness, these young girls (and adult women, after a while) were showing non-conformation with the current standards.
So yep. Kawaii is important, and it all started with cute, simple handwritting a few hearts and cat faces in some girls’ school notebooks <3
it reminds me of how Japanese women invented hiragana, ‘women’s writing’. Japanese women make their own culture <3
No, no and no. REBLOG this please, this shouldn’t be allowed and we need to spread the word to everybody about this injustice!

It’s time for all countries to stand up and say no more special treatment based on gender, race or sexual orientation.
