1. 14 new full-color preview paintings from 18 Days. What a shame that this is never going to be made into a proper comic book. There's no way that the animated series is ever going to look this good. (I'm growing less and less enamored of the Liefeld-esque character design for Karna the more that I see it. But that's my only complaint about the artwork so far.)

Speaking of the Mahabharata...

2. Polyamory for writers. Great thinky-thoughts post, and the comments are great too.

Speaking of fannish things...

3. This person is offering pretty artwork commissions for dirt cheap! Just passing along the plug for a friend of a friend, since I know that some of y'all reading this might be interested.

Speaking of artwork...

4. A Lovecraft-inspired artwork exhibition! I love love love that painting on the promotional flier.

Speaking of the Great Old Ones...

5. Bad thoughts bad thoughts bad thoughts bad thoughts. Soul Eater facehugging snark courtesy of Shioko.

Speaking of things that are probably only funny to Soul Eater fans...

6. This is the current front page of the Shocker Toys website. Scroll down, find the SDCC limited edition Mallow figure for Big Daddy, and then check out whom he is listed right next to. (Capped for posterity.)
nenena: (Soul Eater REVENGE)
There has recently been some back-and-forth about Lovecraft, fanfic, and copyright across livejournal and dreamwidth that may be of interest to all y'all Ohkubo fans: George R. R. Martin kicks it off with some spectacular point-missing here, Nick Mamatas rebutts here, and the definitive word on the matter is metaquoted here.

Meanwhile, on 4chan....

Holy fucking shit! )

The moral of this story is, never trust anyone you meet online in the ninth circle of Hell especially not if he flirts with you by calling you "cookie crumb" and ESPECIALLY not if he has tentacles on his mouth.

Man, Soul Eater is just a treasure trove of sensible relationship advice.
