Just to preface this, I don’t know if anyone else has posted this, so if you have, I’m sorry! I’m posting for anybody with any anxiety, stress, want to cool down from a rough day, or just need background noise to function!
This is a really neat site because you have more than one noise to choose from to listen to. If rain isn’t really your thing, they have crackling fire and breaking waves, and it’s just really relaxing. And you know what’s the coolest part about each noise? You can change the levels. You can slide and switch levels around to have the perfect amount of thunder, or light rain, or crackles in your fire, or foamy sea goodness! Each noise (to my knowledge) has 10 sliders for different sounds within said noise, so you can mix and listen for as long as you need! And if you don’t feel like mixing it yourself, there’s a neat button called “Animate” which allows the noise to evolve and change itself, so it gives it a little flavor.
It even has some that are specifically catering to mental health and sound therapy.
But really, I encourage everyone to at least try it out, it’s just super neat and it calms me down and serves as a nice low noise in the background if I need it for sleep or working on homework.
King Phillip II of Spain, Phillip I of Portugal, during the Iberian Union, in which he ruled both countries. Phillip was the heir to the Portuguese throne after the Death of King Sebastian of Portugal, who died without children.
I think I unintentionally made Portugal look younger than Spain orz, though it should be the opposite. I thought of this while on the Subway, and decided I wanted to try portraying Portugal and Spain like a proper Union under the same King, as opposed to an unwilling Portugal under Spanish control. See kids, this is what happens when you act all clever and marry off your royals to the point where your only heir is spanish. I have a feeling Portugal was hoping that Spain would be in the heirless situation and it ended up being him instead. The clothes might be innacurate ;u; I used Velazquez paintings as reference, but the cloaks were a bit too dark for me to figure out, and I was in a hurry drawing this.
I apologize if I misread the Tumblr attributions, but re: Brave/Rapunzel, I think you wrote "And of course, the former Romans living and working in Scotland at the time would have no written record of their activities or appearance because no one cared." Please google: Roman soldier letters. The first result I got was from a POC, and was quite cool. Then add "Scotland" to your search. Look for the Vindolanda Letters. Again, I'm sorry if I misattributed that statement to you. Thanks.
Incoming mail (tablet 346) is also revealing: ‘I have sent you … pairs of socks from Sattua, two pairs of sandals and two pairs of underpants.’ It was obviously a bit cold for soldiers on the north-west frontier of the Roman Empire.
There is a thing I don’t get though… Which moron had the idea of sending Egyptians recruits in Britannia ? They could have send from Gaul or Belgica. No wonder they were freezing especially if they were at the Hadrian Wall.
i didn’t have a lot of time to do these so they’re really sloppy but these are the least sloppy parts probably. i’ve also never used photoshop to animate before but this is a really good tutorial if anyone’s interested. i wasn’t gonna draw them in their default clothes it would have been too much work aahhh lili is having deja vu in the second gif though this probs happens to her like everyday but she still tries it
