o3o what does Jack of All trades mean?

… In which Tumblr ate my reply. -_-; This is just what I think, though.

In the most basic sense, there are two types: a Specialist and a Jack of All Trades (aka a Generalist).

A specialist is really good at one thing but perhaps not so great at other things.

A Jack of All Trades is also called a Generalist, in which they can do a bit of everything but don’t really specialize in one thing.

For example, let’s say you have a specialist who is really, really good at drawing backgrounds, but can’t do the characters and is horrible at paneling. Then you have a generalist who can do backgrounds, characters, paneling, but not as good as the amazing person.

Or, like, at a design studio, when you have someone who is really good at web development to the point they can recreate a complex site from scratch, but not so good at design or video. Then you have someone who can design, do video, do basic web programming, but can’t recreate the complex website like the specialist can.

That’s how I see the definitions, anyway…

Um… I got tagged by Kag about the five random things about me. I guess it’s easier than finding five good things about me, the ask of which is still sitting in my inbox since forever. @_@ Anyway…

  1. My left big toe grows sideways. It has always been like that and doesn’t cause any pain or discomfort… yet?
  2. I’m a jack of all trades, master of none.
  3. I need to drink a glass of orange juice per day or I feel dehydrated.
  4. I find driving fun, even driving super-long distances. As a personal preference, I like standard transmission vs automatic. The longest stretch I’ve driven, including gas and food breaks, is 8 hours.
  5. Lately I have a bad memory when it comes to remembering certain words or names of things. Early dementia or just old age? On a similar note, I know things in my head but when it comes to explaining things, I sometimes get the name or fact wrong. Though my friends are patient with me, the less patient ones tend to make fun of me or think I’m stupid. They might be right.

Copping out and tagging whoever wants to do this.

Here is the other half of the color palette challenge request for Tris. She had requested a picture of Suikoden 3 version Futch, aka Manly!Futch. Hope it’s okay!

asphaltvalkyrie sent: Lessee, palette challenge... I can't decide between two selfish, greedy requests, so I'll let you decide; either #68 for the Suikoden 3 version of Futch, or #33 for Amneris? Haha... ha?

How about both? :D Though I only have the Amneris one done right now. I’ll post the Futch one later when it’s done. Hope you like it! Thanks for letting me be a little indulgent, too.

adeat sent: Um, can I be selfish and ask for Gray and 57? Also, you can send it in next month and get extra zeny since it's his spotlight in July.

He’s drinking tea :U

anyways, I never said my gtro characters so it’s alright!

Sorry, I kept forgetting to reblog this. I was sick with the flu when I saw it and what would’ve been excited squeeing up and down the halls became a limp-fisted “Yay… so cool… thank you…!” before I passed out in front of the computer again. I’ve been well for awhile now so I have no more excuse.

Anyway, thanks so much for taking up my selfish request! I love it so much! You captured his expression so perfectly! Someone who loves life and likes to live large, he takes things easy yet seriously, so he would enjoy something as simple as tea. Of course, it could be that he’s Chinese and/or that his wife is a huge tea lover, so of course he’d love tea.

By the way, I got a good(?) idea for your color palette challenge request thing. I hope it will be worth the wait. x-x
