Ah yes the halloween decorations are up
perhaps the friends we made along the way were inside you the whole time
perhaps the friends inside us along the way were the real magic the whole time
perhaps the only thing magic needed to do was believe
Perhaps our magic friends only needed to believe in our insides.
Well maybe not so much for the third one.

just to avoid accidentally using offensive language i’m going to start using 90s surfer dude slang because inadvertently offending someone is totally bogus dude
people might not want to be called dude
you are radically right and that is so not tubular my friend i apologise
I find your poor grammar and spelling to be offensive to my eyes.
watch me catch this gnarly wave of i don’t care
Why did you ask this anonymously :p
I’d think you should know by now, I’m a little predictable really.
First of all there’s blankfaces: eyeless creatures, shadesfaces, things with shields and other things over their faces, things with slits/cracks instead of eyes, things with literally an entirely blank head with only an abstract shape to it and not even a nose or mouth let alone eyes.
Then there’s the weird stuff. Things made out of materials instead of having normal features (sometimes not even an earthly material but just this weird substantial stuff), things with really weird body shapes, things that look geometric, things with part of them made out of fire, etc.
Then there’s the birds. Man do I love birds and bird people and dragon people and archosaur people. And dinosaurs, and pterosaurs. Things that have pterosaur wings when they shouldn’t. Things that have theropod wings with claws when they shouldn’t. Things that have fluffy theropod tails when they shouldn’t. Generally trying to create creatures that look like they could have plausibly evolved from something less crazy but look strange and wondrous.
Also things that transform in ways that are difficult to explain physically, particularly while moving around really dynamically, and/or they’re transforming to/from “elemental” things like glowing water or fire or petals. Dark Teapot is a great example, he looks like a normal person but he can actually shoot hot glowing water stuff out of nozzles in his arms which quickly lets off a bunch of steam to leave plain old water, or tea if he throws in a tea bag. He has a fairly normal-looking face with a partial mask over it, which when he removes reveals two open “scars” inside of which is a huge physics-breaking starry void much more vast than the inside of his body.
I guess I should add things that can “upgrade” and become more visually interesting and also more powerful, especially multiple different options for that. Mega Pokémon made me really happy.
Also, another big thing I left out, things that sound nonsensical at first but also make a frightening amount of sense in a crazy way if you think about them, and generally this whole idea of a really vast and complicated but insanely cool world and scenario you think you could never understand, based on that feeling. That’s what inspired Stablehand.
My secondary aesthetic is retrolark, which I’m still developing but basically it involves quirky dated-sounding expressions, monochrome, lots of “modern”-looking emblems but not quite our definition of modern, odd little styling things like screentone that look “hip”, certain types of synthesiser instruments that sound (to me at least) like past decades, sans-serif fonts particularly in capitals, and a crazy fantastical world where you literally don’t know what will pop up next but none of it surprises you. In particular very weird animals, but I also design them with a strong basis in reality (not so much talking about the MBs here, as you might have guessed). So retro sci-fi-fantasy surrealism, but with its own quirks.
Acey all fleshed out.
October is a big month for tumblr.
Pixel floaty I did for Rednote!
Sorry for how long this took me, I do really like how it came out though! Tried experimenting a little with the spinny thing
