The animation is superb. I’m definitely a buff about the techical aspects of art even if its young or mainstream. Its why I also tout Transformers as an incredible film. The CGI pushed the limits and was incredible for its time period.

I was watching it. I only got to episode 13 and then forgot about it because of school and such. I'm thinking about resuming it.

The Free Land of Cameroi

obviously a fan of cgi myself, as its what i like to play with making. (blender 2.79, on my (themnax) fur affinity page)

not a big fan of what i've seen of americanization of anime though. nor do i ever get to see anything new until its years if not decades later.
favorite trek itterations were ds9 and veeger. real fiction about science is something that still takes reading, because media appeal to widest possible audience generally tends to loose sight of the concept entirely. still pretty eye candy though.

The ပျော်ရွှင်စရာ ကြောင်ကမ္ဘာ of Valentine Z

Hi there! I'm sorry if this was shamelessly plugged here before, but I would just like to share some of the pictures I have taken outside, hehe. They span across years - some as old as 2014, some as new as like a week ago!

I do hope you enjoy! <3

Valentine Z's Photography Adventures - Mk. 1

So this is going to be a new non-ICly thing! As some of you can tell by now, I do a lot of photography in my free time! Almost all the time it is a hobby thing - there were times when I do take photos with my family, or friends... and even then, I would not receive any money from it. Not that I want to, actually. I do this for fun first and foremost, and being able to hone my skills just by taking a lot of photos have been nothing short of fantastic! And hey, you're your own boss in a hobby. I get free reign on where I want to go, and where I want to take shots!

My current equipment is either my phone (Vivo X50+), or my DSLR first and foremost - Nikon D5100, attached with 18-200 mm Tamron Lens.

WARNING: Photos are extremely large and might drain your data. Might be slow too! ^^; Each photo, unless panoramas or cropped, is typically 4-6 MB big.

The Seminomadic Republic of Cat-Herders United

I finally have a map of Cat-Herders United:

Although we are known for our tame cats, each of our regions is known for some variety of small cat, great cat, or feliform.

The coastal wetlands - home of the Linkjungle cat

Natural resources: fish, shrimp, natural gas
  • Felis City (pop. 6.9 million) - former center of fossil fuel industry in less enlightened times, university, rodeo, airport, space program, performing arts (ballet, opera, symphony), museums (Natural History, Fine Arts, Contemporary Arts), medical district

  • Puerto Hierba Gatera (pop 0.7 million) - port servicing Felis City, beaches, shrimp fishing

Did you know? Felis City used to be known as Felix City when it was the center of an empire in the 14th-15th century AD, and was historically the largest city in Cat-Herders United, only recently being surpassed by Santa Gertrudis!

The western mountains Sierra De Los Gatos - home of the Linkmountain cat

Natural resources: gold, grazing land

Very nice! You know you gave me the idea for Middle Barael to be formed by many different cultures accidentally winding up here over the millennia! I’ve always greatly looked up to your nation, and this map is really nice. What tool did you use to make it? And are you on the Forest map?
