This was an interesting project I did for some extended members of my family. The painting is by my great aunt Arabella - and while she was a prolific painter for various reasons this is one of only very few paintings of hers remaining in her immediate family (if not the only one). The subject is a Chinese model named T'zu Chou. This would have been painted sometime in the 1950s (during that post-war Hawaiian/Asian fascination*) and has had some damage over time (mainly from being stored rolled at some point and then compressed - you can see how the paint has flaked off in that repeated pattern. There's also a bit of water damage to the canvas).
Now thankfully my task of restoration was not so complicated as say... Baumgartner Restorations. I was only tasked with digitally restoring the image so it could be printed and sent to Arabella's daughters looking more like it would have when new (so the original painting remains untouched).
While the painting itself isn't of too much interest to me outside of family history - I think I've done a pretty good job with it, using just about every trick I know with Photoshop to patch, clone, and paint in missing details. I'd love to do more work like this - it's very satisfying!
*Please note that I do not know the greater context of the subject in relation to the artist and cannot and do not attempt to vouch that it isn't 'problematic.' I am very much aware of the destruction of Hawaii, it's monarchy, and it's commodification to the US which has tremendous negative impact to this day. I am simply showing my painting digital restoration ability.

For those that don't believe me when I say that Dany antis use Daensa as a shield to defend themselves from accusations of being Dany haters, this was literally just posted in the Daenerys Targaryen tag:

"I'm not a hater! I'm not an anti! I think she's a tragic villain! I like her as a villain!"
"I'm not a Dany hater! I even ship Daensa!"

one time my dad + my uncle took me go-karting thinking i'd have fun but they failed to account for the fact that i was a kid who badly needed glasses and was still in denial about needing glasses. anyways i did one lap then swerved into the pit stop lane instead of going round for lap two and then i kept driving straight for the wall of tires because in my moment of panic i forgot how to brake. my uncle ran in front of the go-kart thinking that would stop me (still unclear if he is just that stupid or actively had a death wish) but it did NOT stop me. i sent him flying then crashed head-on into the wall of tires and sent them all tumbling down on top of myself

@moonwoken鈥 asked:聽things you said that i wasn鈥檛 meant to hear (from dean)
HE SIGNS THE paperwork and walks away a free man. He鈥檇 written his life away on a dotted line more than twenty years ago, and today on a dotted line he gets it back. He walks off the parking lot in jeans and a t-shirt, having left his flight suit with supply as instructed. His weapon, his boots, his PT gear. All gone and now someone else鈥檚 burden.聽 聽 聽 聽And his jet. Waiting on the deck for another soul with her silver wings.聽 聽 聽 聽Before he gets into his car he pulls out his phone. He digs through his history to find the unlisted number, the one he knows by heart. The one that hasn鈥檛 called him in months. It might not even be Dean鈥檚 number anymore, for all he knows. He hopes it isn鈥檛.聽 聽 聽 聽They haven鈥檛 spoken since the night he left. They haven鈥檛 spoken since Cass gave up his pride and pleaded, implored him to wait just a few months, begged him to hold out just until he returned from his last rotation. The end was in sight. They could be together after, truly.聽 聽 聽 聽Dean had raged, green eyes flashing. He refused to see sense, refused to accept that the only thing he鈥檇 have to do was wait. Not long at all. Just wait. He could have been standing on the tarmac when Cass鈥檚 flight from Germany landed. Cass could have kissed him there.聽 聽 聽 聽But it all ended because Dean was afraid. It ended and here Cass is, digging his phone number out of his call log from months ago, hitting the dial button and praying it goes to voicemail.聽 聽 聽 聽It does.聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽鈥榊ou could have been waiting for me,鈥 he bites into the receiver, white knuckles and a curled fist at his side.聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽聽鈥業 wanted you to be waiting for me. I lived, you asshole. All that fear over nothing.聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽聽鈥業鈥檓 out. I鈥檓 done. I turned in the rest of my shit this afternoon and signed the documents. I鈥檓 retired. The guys are even gonna have a party tomorrow to wish me well, send me on my way. You could have been there.聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽聽鈥榊ou could have been there because nothing鈥檚 stopping us anymore. I鈥檓 not an officer or a pilot. I鈥檓 just a man who鈥檚 in love with you, and nothing聽is stopping us but you.鈥櫬 聽 聽 聽A pause, pulling the phone away from his mouth to swallow around the lump in his throat and blink back the moisture welling in his eyes.聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽聽鈥楥oward.鈥櫬 聽 聽 聽He hangs up, throwing the phone into the passenger鈥檚 seat before he turns the key in the ignition and drives away.聽

Fully aware I've barely been doing updates but I haven't really had anything to update and honestly I've been doubting everything I'm doing more than I used to. I've been floating within my lowest weight and 2 pounds above it since the start of the year really and honestly I'm not mad about it. I never really managed to get lower than this when I was 16 so I have been more concerned with just maintaining. Especially since I've not had an active job or anything since February, I think it's not bad considering. But things are changing. I've gotten a new job as a barista at my favourite vegan brunch cafe in town and I'm so excited. They honestly do the best pancakes and just everything there tastes amazing. Plus town is about a 40 minute walk for me and would be 5 miles if I did both ways and about 10,000 steps. So that's my plan. It's only 3 days a week so I still have plenty of time for uni and other things. I'll be walking a dog I know two days a week which is normally at least 5 miles and then I will aim to go out with my friend and her dog once a week and do about the same, so that's 6 days counted for. Currently I've been making sure on any spare days to head over the park by mine and get them done but I'm a bit bored of it. I've also been using my vibrating plate 3 times a day for 20 minutes a time. I've also managed to accept that I can eat breakfast and not stress. I just need to work on my evenings because that's the triggering bit. But I'm much more aware that what I do isnt normal now and that it cant be like this forever but then at the same, if I stop and gain all the weight back then it will have all been for nothing. So it's a bit of a trap really.

about the delta episode and zinnia: so much of zinnia鈥檚 narrative/personal arc is centered around self-sacrifice/sacrifice for the greater good...she seems 100% completely ready to die considering during the delta episode she talks about seeing aster (who is dead) again and offering her life to save both hoenns from disaster...she didnt even have a special spacesuit like the protag to protect her from the lack of oxygen in space or hell even the impact of rayquaza hitting the meteorite...but after essentially living the rest of her life to die and carrying that idea that shes going to sacrifice herself, like aster did, for the good of this dimension and the next shes gonna die but she鈥檒l die a hero and she鈥檒l see her dead (girl)friend again, but when rayquaza picks the protag instead of zinnia, when the protag ends up stopping the meteor and saving the planet, the burden is lifted from zinnia鈥檚 back. it鈥檚 ultimately freeing but simultaneously she doesn鈥檛 feel like she has a purpose anymore. atlas no longer carries the heavens on his shoulders, but he feels aimless without the burden of the celestial spheres. zinnia, always one to contextualize the experiences of her and the people around her as stories and narratives, thought that her story was at a close. unbeknownst to her, it was just the end of a chapter. the next chapter is about journeys, about finding yourself, one door opening with the closing of another, letting go and holding on and letting go again, atlas setting down that which he has bore for so many lifetimes.

I am really not made for romance.
I swear this feeling creeps up on me whenever I go on a few dates with the same person.
I don鈥檛 know if this is just aromanticism, fear of commitment, or that maybe i鈥檓 more of a lesbian than bisexual.
Like sex with guys can be fun, and hanging out with them is chill, but I don鈥檛 think I鈥檝e ever felt anything for them without finding out later they were genderqueer or something.
I don鈥檛 really like to date, but I like going on dates. Maybe I can get around this mental block (if it鈥檚 just some commitment hangup or something like that) if I just reframe it as spontaneous fun.
