We might have gotten lazy rep, BUT WE GOT THE SECOND EVER GAY MARRIAGE IN A CARTOON IN HISTORY!
Well as everybody knows Tumblr is gonna change tomorrow and I’ll give my other places you can find me, sadly I don’t think twittter is a good option to post my kind of art so instead you can find me over here:
Bdsmlr is kinda like a tumblr but for bondage pics, still I think is an alfa or beta phase, but still it does the work ^^
December 17th - a rescue plan
Some good news, I’ve been talking to two developers now and got them working together, we just had a meeting with the guys behind an existing large (millions of users) site similar to Tumblr, with a vibrant and open-minded community, and more importantly, it has open-minded owners who believe in free speech. They think we can get something done here to rescue the whole community.
I’m not allowed to reveal the site name yet. I can tell you it’s mainstream, open to everyone, open-minded and welcoming. (It’s not WordPress or any site owned by Facebook or Twitter. It’s not Pillowfort, that’s in closed beta. It’s not Ello, that’s mainly for artists. It’s not kinkspace or fetlife, those are too specialist. It’s not jux, that seems to be closed. It’s not Soup, that seems still in development and too small.)
One of the reasons for delaying the announcement for next few days is they don’t want a “land grab” where people take the names of current popular Tumblr users over there (cyber squatting). So they are looking at ways for existing Tumblr users to keep the same names on the new site.
More info over the days to come.
The plan is, broadly:
1. By December 9th, announcement of the new site and how to secure your username there
2. By December 10th, an online tool for bloggers to copy their existing content to the new site automatically, with the same tags and captions.
3. Bloggers will need to copy their content across between December 10th and December 17th if they want to use the automatic tool.
4. My understanding is that after December 17th there will be no public access to any “flagged” posts on Tumblr, but the original poster will still be able to see the flagged post (for a short time at least). Therefore, the original poster may still be able to manually download a post to their own PC or phone, after December 17th, and manually upload it to the other site. But if you have lots of posts that will take a long time, it will be better to use the automatic tool before December 17th.
Please understand that these dates are approximate and may change for technical or other reasons.
There may be a few rough edges or not so perfect looking site design on the transfer tool. Everyone is doing their best. The main goal here is to help as many people as possible preserve access to their content, in the short space of time Tumblr has allowed us, and preserve as much as possible of the Tumblr community spirit somewhere new.
The new site will cater for photo, GIF, text and html posts. It will not offer video and audio posts, due to cost reasons - maybe in future, but for now you will need to preserve video and audio content yourself in some other place.
If your Tumblr blog has a mixture of original content and reblogs, or all reblogs, all of that can be copied over to the new site. Reblogs will become “your” original content if nobody else posted them yet, otherwise they will be shown as reblogs. The devs are looking at ways to preserve attribution of reblogs back to the original Tumblr poster, if that person also moves to the new site.
Important: your Likes cannot be copied from Tumblr to the new site. You will have to go find the same posts again on the new site, and like them afresh.
(Similarly, existing reblog comments, asks, messages and other user interaction on Tumblr cannot be copied to the new site - that’s just too much to do, in the short time available.)
If you want to preserve any of your existing Liked posts on Tumblr, you will need to either: (1) download the post to your own PC, or: (2A) reblog it now to your own Tumblr blog, and then (2B) use the automatic tool, before December 17th, to move your whole Tumblr blog across to the new site.
If you have Liked a lot of posts here on Tumblr, the gridllr.com webapp should be able to help you do steps 1 and 2A quickly, I mean download or reblog.
(Someone complained to me today about the appearance of Gridllr on a phone. It’s best to use Gridllr on a PC, Mac or Tablet with a large screen.)
If you have liked a post here on Tumblr and the original poster decides to delete it, or even to delete their entire blog, some time before December 17th, then that post will be permanently lost. So if you want to be sure to preserve any of your Liked posts, you should best download or reblog as soon as possible. If it’s reblogged to your own blog it is safe from deletion, at least for next few days.
Obviously, you will lose access, after December 17th, to all past posts you have liked, if Tumblr has flagged them as NSFW. Again, the steps (1), or (2A) and (2B) covered above will be the only way to hold on to these posts.
I hope this is true

It’s review time! Eldet demo v2 review!
At the beginning of the month, @eldet-development released an updated version of Eldet’s demo, two years after the initial one that was launched for the project’s Kickstarter. This update brought quite a lot of neat changes, which I will talk about in a little while.
Eldet is a medieval fantasy, LGBT+ visual novel by Marccus Ehren, in which you play as Kunal, a young man who, after years of studying magic and yet not having awakened any magical ability, decides to work with a mysterious duo of “tomb raiders” who require a mage for their explorations. Along the way, Kunal meets a variety of characters, some of which he can befriend or romance.
Kunal is Eldet’s player character. A man in his early-20′s from a family of famous mages who studied magic for 16 years, yet was never able to actually use magic. Kunal’s personality will be shaped by your choices throughout the game, but he starts out green and quite unsure of himself and his abilities. He can act charming, cunning or intimidating depending on the dialogue options.
Since demo V2, you can customize Kunal’s hair, body, and pronouns, which impact every CG or sprite he/they appear in.
Aadita is a close friend of Kunal’s and studies in the same college as him. She expresses deep concern over Kunal’s safety in his imminent journey, yet still respects his decision, lends him her mage stone, and helps him teleport to southern Andalusia where he meets…
Tariq is the man who offered Kunal to work as a mage for his tomb explorations. He is a cunning, cultivated man who has worked for years with his sister into this whole tomb raiding business. Tariq appears friendly and welcoming at first, but he seems to hide something, and will act cold should Kunal press the issue.
Kahina is Tariq’s sister and just as well-versed in exploring tombs as he is. Unlike him, she’s blunt and straight-to-the-point, and doesn’t seem very enchanted by Kunal’s recent recruitment. Kahina seems to have her own secrets and motivations, separate from her brothers’.
Faaron is a gigantic Elven mercenary hired to keep the group safe during their journey. He never says a word throughout the demo (all of his lines are “…”!), yet seems quick to concern himself over Kunal’s well-being. He’s kind of like a big, pointy-eared teddy bear.
We don’t know much about Akwasi, aside from the fact that he’s Tariq’s brother and that Tariq hates his guts. He seems intrigued by Kunal, and apparently carries a mage stone like him– despite not being a mage himself.
Writing and characterization
As you can see, Eldet features quite a diverse cast, and that’s just the beginning. Not only there will be characters from various races, ethnicities, but Kunal will be able to meet and possibly romance nonbinary characters as well.
Now, one major complaint I hear about inclusive games is how some creators seem to content themselves with making their cast diverse, but yet forget to work towards making the plot actually intriguing and making said characters grow throughout the story. While you can’t say much from a demo about the latter, I was pleasantly surprised by how colorful, and yet three-dimensional each introduced character in the Eldet demo was.
Perhaps the most interesting character in this demo is Tariq, who display two dramatically different sides of himself You just can’t figure the man out with just one set of choices, and I found myself going back to previous saves to see how he would respond to Kunal’s different dialogue choices. Tariq blows hot and cold with Kunal, warmly welcoming him into his group one moment and in the next leaving him to face an incoming scary situation, confusing him greatly.
Faaron, on the other hand, is quite fun to interact with. He doesn’t say anything, and he doesn’t seem fluent in Kunal and Tariq’ language, which leads to some awkward, yet amusing interactions. Yet you can say his various actions and attempts at helping Kunal speak for him and hint at a “gentle giant” personality.
With that said, I’d like to point out how gorgeous Eldet’s backgrounds are, some of which are animated:
Animated magic circle! (+ cool pillars)
The animations look simple, but they further add to the immersion into Eldet’s universe. A nice bonus to already gorgeous hand-drawn backgrounds.
That, plus everything I said earlier, plus the zillion different sprites each character has depending on the scene and clothes they wear, plus the fact that Marccus has been working on Eldeton his own since the beginning –writing, illustrating and composing each soundtrack– shows just how much work and love was poured into this project.
That level of dedication is quite humbling, but at the same time, a little terrifying.
In conclusion… I’m not going to lie, this is the most beautiful VN I’ve played all year, and this is only the demo. Eldet not only aims to be inclusive but also feature a variety of complex, charismatic characters and an engaging story with a solid prose that is a pleasure to read. We haven’t met half of the cast but all the introduced characters were interesting in their own ways, and I look forward to reading Kunal’s exciting people-meeting and tomb-raiding adventures.
On top of the gargantuan workload that illustrating and programming the game implies, my major concern for the full game will be the writing, which I hope, will stay consistent. I’m weak for good writing, more than good art.
If you haven’t backed Eldet’s Kickstarter, you can still support Marccus on Patreon if you like. The available reward tiers are much cheaper than they should be, but even $1 would be appreciated.
And that closes this review. Thanks for reading! :D
A wonderfully thoughtful review of the new demo!
Kehno Drowning -Art trade-
It’s me again! I know is very uncommon to see me posting this often but I have another great drowning pic to share! this time is kind of an “art trade” with my friend kumbartha since he has done some amazing pics for me:
(and more to come) that I decided to give him back a pic, and since we both love big bara lions drowning there is no better option than to draw his hot fursona Kehno, and he is by far one the manliest and hottest characters I have done, especially with that thick hairy chest of him ;3c so hope you like it!!!
Raj Drowning -Fanart-
Hi again dudes! it has been a while since I make a drowning pic XP so this time I worked on a pic of a character who belongs to my dear friend veldismalo named Raj: https://www.furaffinity.net/view/23632475/ you know that my weak point is a really sexy bara arabic man and since the first time I saw it I wanted to draw him like this x3 so I asked him the permission and then here it is! =3 hope you like it!! ^^
If your commissions are open and you do draw OC’s, please reblog this post!
If you are not an artist but know of one, please reblog this and tag them or just mention their url in the tags!
And hey, even just reblogging helps! I will be keeping a comprehensive list of artists who can be commissioned to draw characters/OC’s on the blog!
Piranhatroni Captured -Commission NSFW-
Another Piranhatron commission (NSFW version) asked by pisces893 this time “the fish on a net” is the main theme on this pic and might seem a nice idea to try to brake free but with that harpoon pointhing down there… it might be not as good idea .w.
Aladdin plunges to his doom!
Razoul’s cruel laughter echoes into the desert night, while his two cohorts watch with sadistic fascination as the shackled and gagged prince drops to the water.
I love how the guards turn to leave before Aladdin even hits the water; as if he is so insignificant to them that it’s not even worth it. Razoul hasn’t even finished laughing before they begin the trek back to the palace.
I’ve always wondered if Aladdin was conscious before he was tossed over, or if he came to when he was submerged in the water. In my head canon he came to just before the guards tossed him over, terrified of the fate that awaits him.
Love how tight the gag is here 😈
How helpless Abooboo looks 😍
How unceremoniously he slumps to the seafloor.
And how the cape almost drapes over his head.
I think it’s something about the idea of him being humiliated even in unconsciousness.
He’s just chilling with his dick out. Hard, waiting the 30+ days wait for the release of Ultimate.
Here’s another Halloween costume for Gladio, this time it’s Aladdin!
Originally this was going to be a genie / sultan outfit, but it was looking so similar to the Disney version of Aladdin, that I just embraced it… Guard your bread!
Great job making this!
And here you have it: the infamous drowning scene. Jafar’s minions throw Aladdin off a cliff and into the water, where he sinks to the bottom thanks to the weight chained to his ankles. Not a whole lot to say here, really! We’re almost done with Aladdin, tomorrow we’ll get to the relevant portions of the final battle with Jafar
