Pre-serum, Steve Rogers was COLOR BLIND. He literally opened his eyes to a whole different world.
My mind is totally blown by this.
Oh god, though. Imagine Steve Rogers, artist and art enthusiast, opening his eyes and seeing the world in a full range of colours for the first time.
Steve Rogers experimenting with coloured pencils a few days after the procedure and having a silently hysterical moment over how many different colours there are.
Steve Rogers finding time to sneak off to the National Gallery/National Portrait Gallery/V&A while he’s on shore leave in London and just staring at the classic paintings he spent years of his life studying, but now they’re bright and vibrant and the reds are so red and it’s all so different from the versions that exist inside his memories.
STEVE ROGERS REDISCOVERING HOW MUCH HE LOVES ART AGAIN NOW THAT HE CAN APPRECIATE IT IN A WHOLE NEW WAY.
ARTIST STEVE ROGERS.
omg, color-blind Steve Rogers drawing with the color pencil labeled “red,” and just having to TRUST that it’s the right color for apples.
For a real life example of how this might’ve played out, look at Golden Era illustrator Robert Fawcett. Dude was partially colorblind but still painted with colors using guidance from his wife and a lot of clever know-how.
are these still a thing?
I am a very confused jumble of contradictory impulses.
fleurdehades said: I understand where you’re coming from. He’d be like the next Loki or something. I am a soon-to-be godspouse of his, and I am already experiencing envy and jealousy from a fellow godspouse. He ain’t evil, once you know him! And nice to meet u :3
I hate that he’s always the villain in any Greek-themed flick/series. Makes me want to throw things at the TV whenever something comes on where he’s once again the bad guy. Even as a kid I thought he got shafted in that game of dice, and that he made the best of a bad situation.
Hades is my rock, for reals.
I’ll be the first to admit I don’t get the godspouse envy thing. Honestly, I’d be more worried about Persephone because the one time Hades strayed she turned the lady into a mint plant. I don’t work with Persephone at all, but she, um, intimidates me to say the least.
Anyhow, I’m content with him as my tutor, mentor, protector and friend. Nice to meet you too! :D
Well, I know *I* post about Hades and Loki a lot… :p
XD LOL. No, it was names I didn’t recognize! There are more of you!!
Somewhere out there.
Oh wow, really? And here I was thinking “Uh, you’re about to suggest myself to myself…” XD
fleurdehades said: Ugh I know <.< it’s rare to find devotees of his, let alone GODSPOUSES xD though sometimes I prefer to be alone, since envy, competition and drama tend to spark up easily in the community and whatnot. @_@
I hear ya. I don’t like sharing too much about him because sometimes I’m afraid that if everyone saw him the way I do, he’d be the next hot thing and I kind of like the down-low nature of him. But still, it’s nice to find someone else who doesn’t think of him as anathema, something to be unmentioned, or only relevant in terms of Persephone.
theemperorsfeather said: I only know of one mortal spouse of His; there are several deities like that. But I figure if there’s 1 I know of, there’s probably more.
That’s probably true. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire? Or tip of the iceberg or some such metaphor. :3
Brilliant! XD Seriously, it’s hard to find others - I’m surprised to see that he’s listed as a ‘popular’ godspouse figure when it seems like I can barely find anyone who works with him.
that’s Matt Wagner, skottieyoung, tony moore, Matthew clarke and many others.
Hey, look, it’s our hallway.

Holy shit I want to do this when I get my own place and have friends and visitors fill in a frame. OMG I want this so bad.
