Fate/zero designs are a far cry from being realistic but they do take more of a step in that direction. The art of most of the servants I've seen from extra and grand order on the other hand...

What I meant is that the designs (with notable exceptions) are looking more and more like what you'd expect - stereotypical and similar to how some characters are portrayed in most other media.

I like jeanne's design quite a bit even if she is a saber clone.

Snow
May 14th, 2016, 10:00 AM
Then I confirm I don't understand. Do you mean that now it's easier for your first guess of a character's identity to be correct, since the designs are centred around a single unifying theme for each, or that the designs themselves have gotten more "down to earth" and less "hmm tube dress it is"?
More the first than the second.

Take Iskandar and Medea for example, putting aside the quality of the designs and the characters themselves and only looking at how, for lack of a better word, original they are.

Iskandar's design is something that may or may not be historically correct, but it's probably one of the looks that me or you would pick from a list of how we'd expect Alexander the Great to look like, before knowing anything else about the character he is in the work. This is in no way a bad thing.

On the other hand, you'd probably expect Medea to look differently. After you find out her identity you can go 'oh yeah it makes sense', but there's a degree of originality that makes her less generally recognizable and more iconic for the work she's featured in. This is not necessarily a good thing, and might be a better approach when characters don't have some feature that makes them instantly recognizable and irreplaceable at first glance.

I just happen to like how F/SN heroes have their own aesthetic going on.

I am talking about the ones that are popular looking like they do elsewhere, and the ones that aren't looking stereotypical (sometimes) - Gilles being a dude in armor as Saber. Caster Gilles is one of the exceptions I was talking about.

Although I guess you have to consider that the FSN, F/Z, and Extra designs were all Takeuchi. While the Apocrypha and GO ones were all by a ton of different artists, many of whom probably play it more safe with the designs they hand in because they're not the boss of the company.

I'm not a mind-reader, but I'm going to accuse you of retroactive bias anyway. Alexander in popular culture is, broadly, a dashing and handsome young man. Mr. Craggy, Bulky, Beardy Giant is not terribly congruent with that.

Snow
May 14th, 2016, 10:19 AM
And, but this is just a suspicion on my part, with the fuckton of designs that GO artists had to release the artists often had to resort to first-gut ideas for how to portray them.

This probably is the case and, considering how their creative process looks like, I'd say a lot of them are still doing pretty well.

Arjuna is one of my favorite GO designs and he's as safe as you could go.

Yes, Alex is a pretty boy in media more often than not, that is true. But if you compare him and Herk or Medea based on vague association of identity and culture of origin, Alex is more straightforward.

Alexander couldn't be a pretty boy because F/Z already had Gil and also Diarmuid.

Snow
May 14th, 2016, 10:29 AM
Alex's design is out there compared with his historical depictions that Waver literally asks him "aren't you supposed to be a shortie?". It's his armour and weapons that are sufficiently greek-y.
I'm taking both physical appearance and outfit/gear under 'design'.

Snow
May 14th, 2016, 10:37 AM
As am I, but Alex is made in such a way that the viewer's attention is more naturally drawn to his physical appearance than to his outfit. If I were asked to describe him from visuals alone, I'd say "red-head bara", not "greek warrior".
Guess that's a matter of individual perception. The outfit is integral to how I perceive him, myself.

A better design for Medusa imo would've been if she had actual pants. Even a black bodysuit of some sort would've made more sense (snake skin imagery + a nod to biker outfits).

What I like about her design is the eyepatch and the hair (somewhat), and her pupils are a nice touch overall.

Ok, I'll address this differently.

People don't like violence. They don't like anything that suggests real violence.

You did that.

Now, think about why someone would bring up real violence. Is it a casual, this was on my mind, sort of thing, or, does it suggests a serious intent?

Because, people have filters in their conversation. Thoughts of violence are kept contained until they become strong, enough to act on them. If you bring up tormenting cats, or whatever it is, as something of very little importance, people will think you're psychotic. Because they don't, and wouldn't ever introduce the issue that way.

If in your case, your desires or whatever were weak enough that you didn't act on them, but were strong enough to leave an impression in you, to intrigue you to the point that you'd talk about them on a public forum, it suggests to other people that you really really want to hurt cats.

- - - Updated - - -

So it's about communication. If something is irrelevant, you don't communicate it. If something is important, you communicate it.

Thoughts about violence that are irrelevant are left unspoken, because nobody needs to hear them. Thoughts about violence that are spoken are a threat, or an indicator of strong urges that overwhelm self-control.

Jokes like "Haha I could strangle that cat." are only applicable within a setting where everyone knows it's a joke, and you communicate it as a joke. That's the only situation in which things like this should be said.

Thanks for the opinions guys.

I'l try to keep this urge contained briefly for now, and hope it doesn't develop into something more menacing than Tom & Jerry cartoons. Though I still think I don't really need to consult psychiarist for this.

EDIT: Okay, this is the last time I'll ever discuss about this.

For example, I really like pebbles. Not the rough ones, but the ones that have been smoothed and worn by years in a river, or a few hours in a rock tumbler. The best kind of pebbles are slightly smaller than your palm, and have a beautiful grain of quartz or little chips of mica in them. The best ones are the metamorphics, because they have the shiny iridescence of certain igneous species while also preserving the rough patterns of the sedimentaries.

- - - Updated - - -

Sedimentary rocks are beautiful when you polish them. though as pebbles they appear a bit dull.

Not many igneous rocks form pebbles. Obsidian is quite brittle, and basalt is more pretty in its large formations like the Giant's Causeway than it is on the small scale.

Designing locker rooms for my swimming pool hall, and I'm faced with the question.

Should I divide by gender, or not?

It has individual booths for undressing, so I don't see the point, but the programme notes separated male and female communal locker rooms regardless.

To be plain about it, the best kind of food is the sort that you haven't eaten in a long time and that also combines a rich cocktail of amino acids and salt, preferably also with fat and sugar.

So it was a pineapple and olive pizza.

Fate/zero designs are a far cry from being realistic but they do take more of a step in that direction. The art of most of the servants I've seen from extra and grand order on the other hand...

I really want someone to fill Boudica with arrows... preferably not someone voiced by Sawashiro or Hayamin...


As for Apocrypha, Karna is not what you'd picture when someone says Indian warrior prince.

Some Indians are white...


When my girlfriend first saw shota Iskandar in FGO she thought he looked like someone out of SAO.

Ironically, that's how Alexander actually looked...


This probably is the case and, considering how their creative process looks like, I'd say a lot of them are still doing pretty well.


Arjuna is one of my favorite GO designs and he's as safe as you could go.

But yeah then there's Caligula and Leonidas...nearly everything by the Danganronpa guy, Mata Hari...

Eh, Mata Hari actually looks nice. Perhaps her bust was smaller but I can ignore that...


Now to attempt a core 2 paper. Got 70% in the mock, hopefully I can get at least 80% (90 ideally) on a past paper before the real thing (in just over a week's time).

Tell us when your torture ends...


I've always questioned the effectiveness of sleeping masks

Yeah vodka and other alcohols are actually pretty great for fritter batters and the like, because as they're more volatile, they give crisper products.
idk what volatile means, it's because alcohol isn't water and limits gluten formation because of that, which for certain applications is essential

Arid breeze blows across the mountains
Giving flight to the birds of prey
In the distance machines come
To transform Eden – day by day

Only love is with us now
Something warm and pure
Find the peace within ourselves
No need for a cure

When the wind is slow
And the fire’s hot
The vulture waits to see what rots

Oh how pretty
All the scenery

This is nature’s sacrifice

When the air blows through
With a brisk attack
The reptile tail ripped from its back

When the sun sets
We will not forget the
Red sun over paradise

My dog (the younger one) has been low-key, very quietly whining all day long. He seems to stop when he is touched or when he moves around but it's some kind of center of his being low dirge noise he's making and it's just barely audible. Nothing seems to fix it. He's been out, he's had food, I offered him more food. He had a bath earlier. Unless it's some kind of PTSD from that I am just at a total loss and it's starting to wear at my nerves to hear this low mourning noise that is without ceasing...? He doesn't seem to be in pain but he's restless and will not stop. Why.
