Cornbread mixed up according to instructions on the box (sub water for milk)+ - a little over a half cup of pellets - 2 tbsp of milled flax seed - 1 tbsp of cinnamon (birds barely have tastebuds and ants hate cinnamon so I tend to go a lil bit over board with the spice sometimes … Plus it smells good) - 1 jar of sweet potato baby food* (I photographed two jars but thought better of it once it was all mixed together) - whatever else you feel like adding / have on hand
I hope it turns out OK!
*when buying baby food, make sure the only ingredients are the vegetable and water
Some baby foods - especially those in the organics aisle for some reason - have citric acid (vitamin C) added as a preservative
Vitamin C can be bad for birds in high amounts because it aids in iron absorption, putting birds at risk for iron overload
The sweet potato and cinnamon combo will smell shockingly similar to pumpkin bread with brown sugar and your family WILL say something to the effect of “WHY DO YOU NEVER BAKE FOR HUMANS”
Omg I get this all the time. It’s progressed to the point that when I DO make something for humans they still look at it sadly and sigh “bird food?” and I have to be like NoOO
I’m sure you have seen In turn around sheets or old masters paintings some lines deducing a figure into heads or perhaps a Line splitting an object in two directly down the middle. These relationships are used as a prime example of measuring but have a tendency to be presented In an overly mechanical way.
however there is something you can rely on and build a sense for, and that is 1/2’s and 3rds, i will go into more detail about why this is so important but for now all you need to know is that all devisions within proportion can fall onto one of these devisions….A third or a half.
So today I’m going to attempt to show a new way to help understand and gain a feel for this method by using a special tool.
Consider this the training wheels of proportion, as you use them the wheels may slowly break away and you slowly find yourself cycling on your own, completely free from restraint (or you’ll crash horribly and have to start again, but you get the point).
Quite a few people requested some form of trait/personality generator, and here’s the result! I wanted to keep it vague enough that the options could work for any universe, be it modern, fantasy, scifi, or anything else, so these are really just the basics. Remember that a character is much more than a list of traits, and this should only be used as a starting point– I tried to include a variety of things, but further development is definitely a must.
To Play: Click and drag each gif, or if that isn’t working/you’re on mobile, just take a screenshot of the whole thing (multiple screenshots may be required if you want more than one trait from each category).
I love the idea of doing customized/unique uniforms for each of the senshi, especially if it means I get to put Haruka in a more tailored/militaristic getup. I have designs sitting around for the rest of the senshi, but… but let’s be honest. I’m lucky I finished one design in time for this show. :P
