Hello fellow book lovers! It’s time for another humorous art post. Today, we will be looking at some more bad covers. Now, let’s take a dive into the bizarre world of hilarious cringe.
Angela’s Arm by Roland Allnach Release Date: October 30th, 2018 Genres: Horror and Suspense 204 Pages Small Summary: A tale about a girl with a serpent for an arm.
Ok, I actually kind of love this cover because it reminds me of one of my favorite Anime. Unfortunately, it isn’t perfect, and I can see a lot of room for improvement. First of all, the hand has six fingers, which means that the owner isn’t human. Second, the book’s title is written in the standard “blood red” text to emphasize that it’s scary and edgy. Lastly, the background looks photoshopped.
Civil War II: The Battle for the Future of America by E. Robert Gurr Release Date: May 3rd, 2019 295 Pages Genres: Political Thriller and Suspense Short Summary: A war pits a teacher and a hacker against each other.
This cover is the epitome of boring and wasted potential. It’s just text on a white background. It tells nothing of what happens in the book, and looks like it was pieced together in about five minutes. Also, we gotta be edgy, so there’s more of that laughable “blood red” text.
Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and my Gallery is open once again! I hope you guys are ready for some extraordinary works. Now, have fun exploring my Gallery!
Penelope’s Tapestry by Rene Magritte 1943 Gouache on paper
This is an absolutely beautiful work by “Belgian Surrealist”, Magritte. It takes a unique turn from pure Surrealism, and adds Realism to the mix. It’s an outdoor piece with a misty sky and old fashioned houses. We also get a brilliant blend of snowy blue and green grass. The center of the piece houses a snowy tree, and it blends extremely well with the grass. Near the right side of the work, we see another tree, however, this one is green and planted in rich grass. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.
Hello fellow Duelists! It’s Friday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for another Yu-Gi-Oh post! This week, we will be covering Light Attribute Monsters. Light Monsters are extremely versatile, and many different decks have been built around them. Some of the most famous decks are Blue Eyes and Fairies. I’m going to go into some overlooked cards, and show you some awesome combos you can do with them. Now, let’s Duel!
Consecrated Light Attribute: Light Type: Fairy 1 Star Appearance: A cute circular fairy with a radiating light. ATK/ 0 DEF/ 0 Effect: Neither player can Normal or Special Summon DARK monsters or declare an attack with a DARK monster. This card cannot be destroyed in battle with a DARK monster, also you take no damage from that battle.
This awesome card is a sure fire counter to any DARK deck. The multi-purpose DARK negation is extremely fun to pull off, and can anger many opponents. Also, its low level makes it very viable for Synchro Summoning.
Super Conductor Tyranno Attribute: Light Type: Dinosaur Effect 8 Stars Appearance: An awesome looking dinosaur with heavy armor. ATK/ 3300 DEF/ 1400 Effect: Once per turn: You can Tribute 1 monster; inflict 1000 damage to your opponent. You cannot declare an attack the turn this effect is activated.
Here we have one of the most powerful 2 Tribute cards in the game. It has a higher attack than Blue Eyes, and its burn effect is pretty cool as well. Run this in an aggressive Dinosaur deck, and you won’t be disappointed.
Hello fellow art lovers! It’s Monday, and my Art Gallery is open once again! I hope you guys are ready for some awesome art pieces. Now, have fun exploring my Gallery!
The Gross Clinic by Thomas Eakins 1875 Oil on canvas
This is a very visceral, yet intriguing piece by Philadelphia-born artist, Eakins. It reminds me of Rembrandt’s Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Tulp in that it displays an operation taking place in a surgery theatre. The painting can be hard to look at if you are squeamish around blood, but I find it to be very fascinating. Eakins amazing attention to detail makes the audience feel like they are there. It also displays raw human emotion with some of the students paying close attention to Dr. Gross’ techniques, and others moving away in disgust. The work was rejected at first for being too brutal, but now stands as one of the best American art pieces ever made.
Homage to Bleriot by Robert Delaunay 1914 Oil on canvas
This is an awesome Orphic Cubist work by French Artist, Delaunay. Not only did he start a new brand of Cubism, but also incorporated tons of abstraction in his works. This particular piece is absolutely gorgeous and is a tribute to Louis Bleriot, the first man to fly across the English Channel. The work is a brilliant blend of vibrant colors and hidden man-made objects. The leftmost part of the painting reminds more of a pain palette with various colored dots cascading down. We also get the image of the Eiffel Tower in the distance, as well as Bleriot’s plane. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.
Hello fellow Duelists! It’s time for another card post! This time, we’ll be covering some of the strangest cards in Yu-Gi-Oh. Now, let’s Duel!
Boar Solider Type: Beast-Warrior/Effect 4 Stars Attribute: Earth Appearance: A boar warrior with a giant hammer. ATK/ 2000 DEF/ 500 Effect: If this card is Normal Summoned, destroy this card. If your opponent controls 1 or more monsters, decrease the ATK of this card by 1000 points.
At first glance, minus the effect, this looks like a pretty formidable monster. Unfortunately, its effect makes it nearly unplayable. It does have synergies with Skill Drain, but you’re just wasting resources to keep this pathetic creature alive.
Savage ColosseumType: Field Spell Appearance: An ominous arena with skull-shaped sky. Effect: If a monster attacks, at the end of the Damage Step: Its controller gains 300 LP. All monsters must attack, if able. During each End Phase: Destroy all face-up Attack Position monsters the turn player controls, that did not declare an attack.
This is a super fun and strange Field Spell that makes both players play very aggressively. The small LP gain is not where this card shines. The forced attacking of monsters is quite insane, and both players have many opportunities to trap their opponents.
Hello fellow book lovers! It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more crappy covers. Now, let the cringefest begin!
A Gift Garden by: Nathan & Arthur Culbert Illustrated by: N. Jane Quackenbush Genre: Kid’s Fiction Pages: 168 Release date: November 28th, 2018 Quick Summary: Kids try to help the less fortunate people get food.
The book seems like a very whimsical tale of helping people out. Unfortunately, the cover is the stuff of nightmares! The illustrator did a very crappy job of portraying children. They look like melting candle wax, and the scenery could be a manifestation of an LSD trip. Absolutely pathetic!
Rebellious by Alec Mustafayev Release Date: September 18th, 2018 Genre: Unknown Short Summary: A tale of a rebellious kid and his day to day life. 228 Pages
This cover looks like something straight out of the Amiga CDI! The human portrayed seems like he was designed in Microsoft Paint. In conclusion a horrifically bad art disaster.
