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.

I am Americanized but still indian

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.

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?

Thanks!

I used InkScape to make it, and I am not on the map yet. Not sure if there’s anywhere on the regional map that would really fit for this nation; maybe I’ll make a puppet that is really integrated with this nation’s history and can be on the map?

It really do be 3am here huh

This is gorgeous!

Yes! I finally have 1% in International Artwork, after I found a card that someone had inflated to around 250 bank in one of my puppet nations.
At last.

I think it might take a while for me to reach the same goal..

Maybe in the new world....
BTW I'm gonna make my own with Inkarnate, and it's gonna be inspired by my reserved position on the offico map

I've reached my influence plateau in Forest and now it's going to decline dragging me out of #1 in perspective. Well, at least I can enjoy the top place now :P
