Heaven on Earth - In a woodland on the California coast - Imgur
My outlook on the world has narrowed substantially over the years.
This is a tradigital drawing.
One of the problems I’ve had with submitting work to deviantart is the fact that I have to pick a category. There is no mixture between traditional media (pencil, pen, charcoal, etc) and digital media. You basically have to pick one or the other. Consider this drawing, though; it was carefully drawn with pencil, inked with microns, scanned without alteration to the lines (except to correct some blur from scanning), and then colored digitally.
So which is it? Traditional or digital? The lines are an important aspect of the image, but the color is equally as important, giving the figure some dimension. Which aspect is dominant in this image? Both.
So instead of picking between traditional media or digital media in accordance with the invisible pidgeonholing committee, I’m calling it tradigital.
Credit for the term goes to ~brightredrose on deviantart. She and I both seem to be having the same issue.
From “There’s a Dragon in the Attic:”
“You know what would be absolutely fabulous? If DA would make a category for things that are equal parts traditional and digital. *sigh* As I spent more time on the traditional part, I’m going to slap it into said category for now.”
Doxanos… Well, it’s an odd one, that’s for sure. Too far away to be convenient to invade, too close to water to ignore completely, too volatile to trade much with, and too dangerous to oppress. Very few who are born in Doxanos ever leave, though they are certainly distinctive when seen; jet black hair and red eyes characterize most Doxkyrie.
The most recognizable habit of the Doxkyrie are the Skyfire Knights, the only people ever able to tame and train meteor dragons for work and battle. Thanks to their vicious fighting style and aerial superiority, Doxanos needs no standing army. On the rare occasion a stronghold comes under attack, signal flares are fired into the sky to call in the flying calvary. After the attackers are taken care of, the knights bring proof of their kills to the town’s magistrate to be rewarded for their service. Such a system keeps the knights interested in coming to the city’s aid, outside of the inherent reward of glory in battle. It’s hard to say whether the physical reward is entirely necessary.

Heh, saw this exchange of words in quite a few places on the internet after Eurovision was over.
But yes, we get most American TV and news over here.
German guy confused by the meaning of “Party Pooper”.

Adorable! Oh god, English is a fucking stupid thing, isn’t it?
