LEMONTEAFLOWER (known for the Miss Officer and Mr. Truffles Kickstarter scandal and drawing a lot of porn of underage characters) DID NOT CREATE VILLAINOUS NOR SHE THE ONLY PERSON WORKING ON THE SHOW
Animation is a massively collaborative process and there are probably literally HUNDREDS of other animators and artists involved with the production of Villainous, none of which stand for/support LemonTeaFlower or what they did
By saying “DON’T SUPPORT THE SHOW BECAUSE LEMONTEAFLOWER WORKED ON IT!!” YOU ARE DAMNING EVERY SINGLE OTHER INNOCENT MEMBER OF THE CREW, INCLUDING THE REAL CREATOR ALAN ITURIEL (who might I add seems like an extremely freaking awesome dude who’s been retweeting tons of fan art for his show over on Twitter)
Don’t let one person with a bad reputation ruin the efforts of so many others. Support Villainous.
Familiar Enemy, that’s the name of the little witch Au I cooked up. It’s loosely based off Wadanohara, and Little Witch Academia. I just really wanted to draw Lance as a witch, and my brain made up a story about it with familiars attached. I would like to doodle some more about it, perhaps include Prince Lotor as well.

Life decided to play games with me this year, and art block is still dragging my ass down BUT I managed to finish this! (I have like 4 unfinished korrasami drawings but let’s not talk about that) anyways, have some cute fluffy korrasami because I think we all need something happy right now.
Roy often skips Boy Scout meetings to hang out with Kori and Jason (Don’t tell Ollie)
Kyle Rayner is usually hanging with the Troublemakers but had a cold on this particular day and Hal wouldn’t let him leave the house.
Cass is wearing Bruce’s old costume (here) that she found in the attic while playing hide and seek with her brothers. Alfred has since made a few alterations to it, of course.
That stuffed cat looking thing behind Damian was made by Dick. Alfred has been teaching him how to sew and he practices by making tons of plush for his siblings! (They’re finally starting to look like actual animals)
5 of my favorite art pieces I’ve made in 2016! This year has been a rollercoaster but I think I’m really improving in terms of art and sense of self so i’m pretty happy, have tons of more work to do and I hope I never stop being inspired!
Burning need to paint realistic Shiro + a metric ton of reference photos (and used a stock image for the background) +
Paint Shop Pro 9 + Wacom tablet + a week’s worth of evenings = now ready to throw something at whoever thought prisoners should wear Lycra and a crop top. I know it’s not perfect, but I give up. Too much Lycra. Not enough crop top reference photos.
me, new to a underrated ship :
wow i can't wait to read tons of this pairing's fanfics and see lots of amazing fanarts and scroll down the tag for more content! seems like it's very exciting!
fanfics that only has one chapter and is probably discontinued or abandoned and has very little reads :
obviously great underrated fan arts made by only a couple of people because the ship is that underrated that only only a few makes the art to satisfy the shippers :
the dying ship tag on tumblr :
bigger ships in the fandom mocking the small ship :
the shippers that has been searching for the existence of the pairing's fanfics since 2009 with puffy eyes not because they've read a sad fic, bcs they can't find any trails of great fics that isn't abandoned :
exciting, yeah. welcome.

And you can read all about it in that Entertainment Weekly article I just linked to! I’m super excited for this, and so stoked he was able to come on board. The issue - #26, out next month - is about Doreen making all her superpowered friends write comics for a zine she’s pulling together. And Jim Davis is making Galactus’s OWN AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL COMICS come to life.
Here’s an excerpt from the article!
“When you look at the Silver Surfer, he’s 75 percent of the way there anyway with Jon, all we had to do is give him the big eyes. That was a natural. John kind of hangs around Garfield anyway, he’s the straight man to Garfield’s gags and has to get him food. He’s like Garfield’s herald. Galactus was tougher. We were throwing stuff back and forth, and the initial sketches just weren’t working for Galactus. I said okay, we gotta make him fat. The guy eats planets, for god’s sake! Once we do that, it’s a little less Galactus but certainly a lot more Garfield. It looked more natural. Obviously, Galactus has put on a few mega-tons for this strip.”
You can read the whole thing here, and included are some sneak peeks at but some of the GALACTUS COMICS we made, as well as unlettered Kraven art from Michael Cho, Spider-Man comics by @rahzzah, Tippy art by Rico Renzi (our colourist!), and Howard art by @zdarsky, whose story is written by @ericafailsatlife (our artist!)! It’s going to be a RIDICULOUSLY FUN ISSUE and I can’t wait for y’all to read it. Thank you Jim for being down for this and thank you all for supporting the book so much that we get to do crazy things like this!!
Sorry if I sent this to you twice, I can’t see your other blog (crii ;-;)
Happy Birthday, Miss Rouge!
I wanted to give these to you as a thank you and a birthday gift. If you weren’t here, I wouldn’t be either. You were the one who inspired me to expand my art to more than my small band of friends irl. Your babqftim blog helped me figure out what to make of my blog, and thanks to you(and many others), my blog is what it is now! So I hope you enjoy my little comic, picture and gif I made just for you! ^^

(marketing anon) WAIT will you explain the anime marketing stratgey to me?? - esp. soukoku please, I'M INTRIGUED
what do you mean by ‘the soukoku situation’?
Ok, let’s talk about The Soukoku Marketing Strategy
disclaimer: this post reflects my own opinion as a marketing strategist and does not in any way claim to provide 100% true facts. Also, this is gonna be very long.
Let’s start saying that I have no knowledge of how the Japanese market works, but the BSD marketing strategy always impressed me very much, especially if compared with the anime I’m the most familiar with: Haikyuu.
Generally speaking, BSD’s strategy is a hella good strategy. It created a deep connection with the city the anime is set in (Yokohama), with the museums and everything concerning the real life authors, and, especially, with the fandom, providing a ton of official art (featuring all the characters) and extra content to keep them engaged while the anime is not running.
And we have to thank Bones studio for this. I have the feeling they are investing A LOT of money and effort in the BSD anime, treating it as a very special project (see: the movie, the advertisement for the DVDs, and the panel they held at AX). I think BSD for Bones is what we call “a question mark on the way to become a rising star”. This is made possible probably because Bones has BNHA (their “cash cow”) to provide the money for it.
There’s a saying in marketing that goes: don’t sell what you produce but produce what you can sell. And that’s what Bones is doing with Soukoku.
If you look at it, there’s no canon reason for Chuuya to be featured so heavily on the official art. I love Chuuya, but he’s a very much side character that had probably less amount of screen time than any other side character, not to mention how rarely he’s featured in the manga. But, in marketing, we couldn’t care any less about things like this. Chuuya is one of the fandom’s most loved character and, most of all, he’s a character that sells. A LOT.
And you know who’s the other most loved character? Dazai. You don’t need to be a marketing research expert, you just need to go on google, search of one of them and 90% of the fan made material about them has them together. As tiny as it is, from what I saw the 70% of the BSD fandom is made by people who ship or generally enjoy Soukoku.
I’m sure Bones is very much aware of this, as they are aware of the fandom’s discontent with the lack of canon content about them (looking at it objectively, there’s no reason for this ship to be this popular, they barely interacted twice - TWICE - ).
And you know which marketing strategy is always effective? Giving people what they want. And what do people want? Soukoku. What do people buy? Soukoku. So what are we going to give them? Of course, Soukoku. Do we care about the fact that in canon they are supposed to hate each other? Absolutely fucking not. In fact, what Bones is proving is a very much shipping form of Soukoku:
And, of course, the greatest example of them all (HONESTLY WHAT THE FUCK)
I have no idea if the Bones staff truly ships Soukoku as much as we do or if they are doing it just to make us spend money and to keep our attention towards the product as high as possible. The only thing I’m sure of is that this strategy is working, very well actually.
I am a Soukoku shipper, I recognize the fact that this is nothing but a very well targeted marketing campaign, but I don’t care. I crave Soukoku, I’m upset by the lack of Chuuya (and DazaxChuuya interactions) in canon and, as fake as it might be, I’m thankful for the content I’m receiving.
You can call it baiting, but I prefer to call it a win-win situation.
