Rabb_horn does this thing where they have little inset images in the artwork, like paintings or crystal shards. I really like it, it makes the work a bit more dynamic and leads your eye around to consider different things.

Please draw Welrod wearing either a kimono or a fancy long party dress. For example, Groza’s kimono (OTs-14) and FN49’s red dress, that sort of style. I’m happy to leave the rest of the details to you!

And they nailed it, it’s so gorgeous! I feel like Welrod’s costume designs tend towards a younger style (while still being very elegant), so it’s refreshing to see a more mature spin. It also doesn’t hurt that my favourite colour is red, so I really like how they’ve styled my waifu.

To me, part of the trick with using Skeb is tweaking your messages to make sure they translate correctly. I use DeepL to convert my English to Japanese (because it’s what Skeb uses), then feed that output through Google Translate in the reverse direction so I can check the terminology that DeepL has chosen (Google’s romaji subtitles are a godsend). Google Translate is kinda crummy these days, but it’s plenty good enough to sanity-check your sentences.

For the specialised vocabulary that you tend to use while drafting Skeb requests, it’s handy to verify that the correct Japanese terms are coming out on the other side of DeepL. In the opposite direction, you get to make sure it still has the correct meaning, and a suitable tone/intent.

DeepL does a really good job with colloquialisms or slang, and captures the right intent most of the time. While I was boosting rabb_horn’s piece I wanted to convey that I was stunned when I saw it, and I thought a good Keanu-woah would do the job.
