Assignment to redraw a scene, used my favorite moment from Alita Battle Angel to practice sequentials! (Lines are not spot on shhh I did what I could with my bad memory)
(Also a heads up: I’m practicing this specific style because I plan for the new CTC to be drawn like this. Hopefully much neater tho lol, so I hope you guys don’t mind the style as I get better at this!!!)
The alt-right and conservatives don’t mind strong female characters… so long as those strong female characters are ones they can objectify and ogle. Alita is literally objectified and infantilized by her surrogate father figure in her own movie, whereas Captain Marvel is never seen in a revealing or skimpy outfit. Brie Larson also made fun of trolls who told her she should smile more, and was openly outspoken about harassment she had received over her role. Is it any wonder that the alt-right would not take her side?
PS: I knew the connection to the alt-right was strong, but upon researching this topic again I realized that the guy who created the “alitachallenge” hashtag in the 3rd panel is the same troll who managed to get James Gunn fired from Disney.
So… I made this a week ago, and in that time a NEW story has dropped which only goes to confirm what this comic is talking about.
And yup. Sure enough, the same people who complained about Captain Marvel are now going after Birds of Prey. Why? Because they’re unhappy with how Harley Quinn looks in the film, and because the film is being directed by a woman. Which again goes to prove this point. They don’t mind strong female characters, as long as those strong female characters are dressed in a way that they approve of. Harley’s outfit in the new film is far less objectifying/infantalizing and has a lot more personality.
We have a new artist on the team. Meet Alita, you can see her past works at Alita.games! She will be in charge of revamping the old sprites, as well as making the future ones. You will also see her work on illustrations starting Chapter 7. Ariel will be in charge of everything else art-related. We’re very happy to have her on the team 😊
To give you an idea of what to expect, here are the first re-designs of the Main 10. They are not final nor completed. However, they give you a rough idea of what the future of Sweet Elite is going to look like in 2020. ✨
We’ve been working on a lot of things behind the scenes, so we’ll have a lot to show for soon! We have even more previews coming up, both of upcoming chapters and other updates to the game, so keep your eye out!
