Holy smokes! I hadn’t expected that last picture to become so popular. It most certainly made my day. Thank you!

Percival is one of my older characters and most definitely one of my favorites so it’s really nice that other people like him.

More info about him:

  • He’s old (think antique) and, despite his age, he can be immature at times. Usually involving others being wet blankets.
  • His favorite pass time is narrating stories, preferably to an audience, and spending time with children.

If anyone wants more information about him then feel free to send me an ask!

I am personally very happy for Percival’s existence.

ahhhhh so cool

A new religious statue in the town of Davidson, N.C., is unlike anything you might see in church.

The statue depicts Jesus as a vagrant sleeping on a park bench. St. Alban’s Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes.

Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.

The reaction was immediate. Some loved it; some didn’t.

"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."

That’s right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.

Dan Fessler’s HD Index Painting Technique let’s you paint pixel art in Photoshop in a non-destructive manner, and lets you use pretty much every tool in a perfectly pixel-gradient fashion!

The article gives you everything you need to try it out for yourself.It’s easy to set up and use, and the results are so fucking cool.

pixel artists everywhere dying just so they can roll in their graves

In the 1960s, GE engineers developed the Cybernetic Anthropmorophous Machine, or Walking Truck. In 1966, the US Army awarded GE a contract for building the experimental vehicle. However, its hand and foot controls not only fatigued operators, but were impractical for prolonged use on the battlefield, so the project was discontinued. Kevin Weir at flux machine recently reanimated the Walking Truck so the mechanical beast could gallop once more.

Here’s another thing I made for GE!
Imagine this fearsome beast ambling after you on the battlefield.
And then tripping over a pine cone and exploding everywhere.
Also imagine a walking truck ice cream truck.
