natalunasans replied to your post: anonymous said:pronunciation for …

and THEE-ta, not THAY-ta, right?

THAT IS A VERY GOOD QUESTION AND IN FACT DEPENDS ON YOUR DIALECT

in capitoline (standard) gallifreyan, it’s actually thay-tah (“E” is always pronounced “ay”)

in cadonin gallifreyan, ðeta/dr.who’s own dialect, however, it’s thee-tah. in capitoline gallifreyan this pronunciation would give you the word “god”

I’ve been following this Gallifreyan thing from afar and I have a question: is there an explanation for why some Gallifreyan names are Greek letters?

Not to be morbid or anything but i’m pretty sure we’re all going to drop dead before there’s any movement on the Watch tv show. When was the last time we heard anything other than “we’re working on it”?

They did talk about it a bit at the Discworld Convention, emphasising ‘getting it right’ over ‘getting it quick’. I’m afraid that’s all they said :/

I need to get myself an e-book reader. Because, being a respectable literature teacher with lots of 19th century realistic French novels to fit in, I don’t want to be the kind of person who has shelves full of Doctor Who books. But, on the other hand, some of these Doctor Who books sound really interesting…

How is the fact that they’re (hypothetically) a terrible person relevant to the content of their blog? It’s not a personal blog, it’s Art History. You can check the facts for yourself and decide whether or not you believe in it. You can even defend your own point of view. why come up with ad hominem attacks instead of just refuting what they say?

It could be problematic if the lies that person is accused of were proved to be facts. But… after following about every valid link in that “masterpost”, i’ve come to the conclusion that whatever bullshit medieval-poc is guilty of, the person accusing them is definitely NOT innocent either.

"white-ass selfies"? pardon u? these are mostly pictures given WITHOUT ANY CONTEXT. Also, a SUBMISSION. To a blog which link with medival-poc is NOT clear.

This side of the research is done: lots and lots of bullshit. Now if I want an opinion on the blog medieval-poc itself, I’ll do more research.

I’M SO TIRED OF THAT SORT OF SHIT FFS.

Without saying anything about the blogholder’s personality, I’ll just note that 1/about 90% of her pictures are *not* medieval, but date from colonial times ; 2/ of the medieval ones, most are of Biblical or early Christian characters who were known of being of African origin like St. Maurice or Gaspard (one of the Three Wise Men). Meaning, even if these pictures are very interesting by themselves, they don’t say much about actual ‘medieval poc’. As long as you know that you can look at all the pretty pictures to your heart’s content, that’s what I do^^

Dad - unfinished by Alda-Rana

I found this unfinished assignment from last year’s art class while rooting around on top of my bookcases for stuff to show in the start-of-the-year exhibition. It is unfinished, but I never go back and finish old pictures so it’s as done as it ever will be.
We were supposed to paint a picture of someone from a photo, so my mother took this picture of my father especially for me. He probably deserves better, but the likeness is here :)

aligubbs a dit : Would be interested to see your style applied to Jon Pertwee… And Sarah Jane is always welcome (my heroine!)

Thanks for answering! :)

I’m still thinking about it but since I have actually already drawn Three and Sarah Jane for the Francophone Classic Who blog, I’ll repost those pictures:

Hey, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted someting about Classic Who around here, and Romana IV at the Classic Who Francophone blog needs pictures for a new header - she’s asking artists to send pictures of two Doctors and two other characters from the classic series. Suggestions?

I’m a teacher! I teach!

I stand in front of 36 teenagers for an hour, and I tell them what to do, and they do it! I ask them questions and they answer! This is so validating, you can’t believe it!

And I am going to spend about six hours marking the 36 15-line-long papers because my speed approximates that of an asthmatic snail! Oh well. You can’t be perfectly efficient right away…

I am a teacher again! I have taught!

(The students were so nice it’s ridiculous. Like playing in super-easy mode. Let’s hope to every god they stay this way)

Look at that nice drawing table that seduced me shamelessly with its shiny rulers, precise clips and 40% off… 
Only thing that worries me is that the box says ‘draw like a professional!’, which means it assumes that the user is not, in fact, a professional. Not that I’m one, but it seems a weird way of marketing your product. ‘We don’t sell this to real artists, but with it you can pretend you’re one!’

…Anyway. Straight lines ahoy! This is perfect to start the actual drawing stage on my graphic novel project :)
