Started this earlier this summer, around the time of the pripyat-inspired drawing. Didn’t turn out quite how I envisioned but put too much work into it to not post.
Based on this photo from Abandonography. This blog is a great resource for anyone who wants to draw Fallout/post apocalyptic settings but is bored of brown deserts and generic grey ruins.

Awesome

PSA to all activists: 

Please stop using ableist slurs to combat oppression.

Here are some better words that describe oppressors without bringing down the disabled community: narrow-minded, naive, unsympathetic, ridiculous, disgusting, ignorant, irrational, pathetic, repugnant, thoughtless, unjust. (And of course: racist, misogynist, transphobic, homophobic.)

"It was March 5th, 1988. There was a prayer festival that day, so we thought it would be a good day to protest. It was entirely peaceful. We were only shouting three things: ‘Long live Dalai Lama,’ ‘Free Tibet,’ and ‘Bring Dalai Lama Back to Tibet.’ First they fired tear gas, and then they started shooting. A girl standing next to me got shot in the heart. We ran into the temple, but they came in and kept shooting. I saw three young boys get thrown off the roof. I was shot, but I managed to escape, and two Tibetan doctors helped remove the bullet. One of the doctors worked for the Chinese army, but she still helped me as a Tibetan. Soon there were posters of me hanging up all over town. They said I was a dangerous monk. My friends dressed me in women’s clothes. For a week, I wore lipstick and rings and long hair. But at one point I tried to visit my mother, and that is when they found me."

Enforcement Officials Beat & Kidnap a 12-yo Black Girl in Front of her Residence, Claiming She Was a Prostitute
"When her mother and father came outside after hearing her cries for help she was desperately holding a tree with one arm while plainclothes officers were beating her in the head, neck and throat.
Dymond Milburn, now 20-years-old, was an honor student attending advanced classes at Austin Middle School, when her life would be forever scarred by Galveston police.”
None of the enforcement officials who terrorized and beat Milburn were penalized.

smh….

officers were beating her in the head, neck and throat.
they were literally trying to kill her. this is a little girl. what the fuck.

Even better:After hung jury, girl won’t be retried in police assault case (2009)http://m.chron.com/news/houston-texas/article/After-hung-jury-girl-won-t-be-retried-in-police-1601070.php
"Five of the six jurors refused to vote to convict Milburn of felony assault, said defense attorney Anthony Griffin and Assistant District Attorney Veronique Cantrell-Avloes.
An earlier attempt to try the case also ended in a mistrial after a witness made an improper statement in front of the jury.”
They tried to beat a young girl’s head in, and then charged her with felony assault on one of the officers. And there was at least one asshole juror who wanted to convict her at a retrial.

This and the terrible Daniele Watts incident with the LAPD this weekend are just two of many, many examples of how black women’s bodies are aggressively sexualized. BTW, in that article, it says police were looking for three WHITE prostitutes who had been reported in the area. Once again, police brutality is justified even though their victim didn’t fit the profile they were looking for.
The officers - Gilbert Gomez, David Roark, and Sean Stewart — were in plainclothes and got out of an unmarked car and told her she was under arrest, and then made her go to trial twice for charges of “assaulting an officer” and “resisting arrest” when she didn’t eagerly jump into a car full of strange men. They beat her so severely she had to be hospitalized, and then they claimed her injuries were from the tree she was holding on to to prevent them from dragging her out of her own front yard.

“What is it about modern conservatism that demands there always be not just a threat, but an existential threat? It’s not enough that Saddam Hussein was a vicious dictator, he also had to be just years away from unleashing a “mushroom cloud” upon us all. It’s not just that there was a temporary rise in the number of undocumented minors crossing our borders, we had to have people like Rep. Louie Gohmert explain to us why this was going to somehow result in the end of American civilization. And those kids probably had Ebola. And they were probably Muslims. Reforming health care was going to lead to a dystopian future in which you would appear before a government panel that decided whether you lived or died. Putin is an evil mastermind who has his eyes not just on Crimea or even Ukraine, but on most of Europe if we do not send in our own tanks, or talk much more angrily, or do some other unspecified something. Everything is the immediate precursor to Armageddon, every day, all the time.” The Great Orange Satan on Sen. Lindsey Graham, who says: ‘They will open the gates of hell’, ‘This is ISIL versus mankind’. (via wilwheaton)

Qian Hongyan was just four when she lost both her legs. A speeding trucker left her for dead as she crossed the main road in her village of Zhuangshang in southern China. 

For nearly two years Qian was immobile as she didn’t even have enough of her body left to sit up in a wheelchair. Doctors said her only hope of being able to move by herself again would be extensive surgery to allow her to be fitted with prosthetic limbs.Her parents couldn’t afford this treatment. 

Qian’s granddad Yuan came up with a simple but effective treatment to get her moving again. He took a basketball the village boys had discarded and cut a hole just big enough for tiny Qian to fit into, padded the inside with stiff floor mats from his car, then propped her up inside. All of a sudden Qian was able to stabilize herself and was able to by move herself by rolling the ball in any direction she wanted. She supported herself using wooden handles. 

From that day on Qian would not be stopped by any obstacle. She went back to school, started to play with her friends again, and started to get back the life of any girl her age. She began professional swimming training in 2007 and defied the odds of her double amputation to become one of the first members of the Yunnan Youth Swimming Club.

She won three gold medals in last year’s Yunnan Para Games and took a gold and two silver medals at the National Swimming Championship for the Disabled (Under 18) in 2009 before continuing impressively at this year’s Para Games.

SOURCE

I should have added this in the original post but after attention in the Chinese press, Qian traveled to Beijing to receive free artificial limbs at the China Rehabilitation Research Center, a center that has been providing help to the disabled in China for over 20 years. At 18 years old she is ready for her full adult prosthetics.

Behold! The latest in a series of artworks that challenge predefined concepts and definitions! This was created for Kazerad and his mighty quest of reblogging every image of Vivec and Celestia together. What you are looking at dear friends is such an image. To the untrained eye, it may appear to be random strings of characters without even the slightest hint or mention of either being. But, if you translate this code from base64 into image format, you do indeed get a really badly compressed picture of Vehklestia. Trust me!
TL;DR: This is silly. Go read prequel.

I… I guess this does count? It’s very avant-garde, but I guess on some cryptographical level it is still, basically, a picture of Celestia and Vivec.
I don’t have time to run it through a text converter right now. I’m gonna be disappointed in you if it’s porn, though.
