People of Color


Be proud for your own culture,  be proud for the color of your skin, be proud for who you are.

Protect & respect your own beliefs, culture, traditions, origins, & morality because those are the ones that gives color and meaning to this world.

maid-en-china:

With wings of death
And crown of black
A sea monster more terrifying
Than any creature of the deep
Is this the epitome of man?
All pride for greedy production
So serene in self-destruction 
If suicide is a crime
We would all be guilty
 
The Problem:

The solution:

  • Pick up your trash. It’s not that hard. Don’t just throw plastic bags and other crap on the street. It’s going to get washed into the streams and oceans where it can choke and kill many endangered wildlife.
  • Recycle what you can. Those plastic bottles can be made into other things so don’t just trash them, recycle them.
  • Be conscious of what you eat. It’s nothing extreme like becoming a vegan. Helping endangered animals can be as simple as buying the right kind of seafood. The Monterey Bay Aquarium has many guides and free pocket books on which seafood is eco friendly to eat, and there are plenty of choices so it’s not the end of the world for your stomach, and better yet, it’s not going to be the end of the world for those endangered species. http://www.montereybayaquarium.org/cr/cr_seafoodwatch/sfw_recommendations.aspx
  • Switch to a hybrid car if you can, or try to use more public transportation. You’ll save money on gas, and save the environment from toxic spills and global warming. Not only that, you can buy food from your local farmers market where food is locally grown, and not transported across the world by burning petroleum. 
  • Lastly, spread the word. Education is the best cure. Many people don’t watch what they eat simply because they’re unaware of the environmental damage humans are causing. People need to understand that helping the environment is simply helping themselves. Once the over fished tuna goes extinct, and all the other animals that eat tuna also dies off, what’s there left for us? So even if you don’t care about the animals themselves, do it for yourself and your children. Don’t let anyone stay ignorant, because the future they ruin will be your future as well. Spread the word, reblog, share, tweet, word of mouth, do what you can to cure ignorance.

My second Steampunk character painting. It was quite a challenge to finish this lovely lady because of the heavy detail here. I repainted the whole scenery from a bright daylight to a darker setting which helped to get more focus to the character. I used some references but painted mostly from my imagination which was a good practice. I hope you like it.Photoshop CS, Wacom Intuos III no cheats as usual…Please notice, I do make these costumes, if you need one, please sent me a note ——PRINT COMMING SOON ——Thanks for watchig,Jac
