random but i just wanted to say i love you guys and i appreciate you all so much. i’ve been having a really shitty time lately thanks to bipolar depression (gotta love it!!) and it’s just been one of those weeks where i convince myself that everyone hates me because i’m annoying and overbearing and everyone’s just pretending to care about me. i honestly don’t care about validation, i’m usually satisfied being my own support system but just lately i’ve been doubting myself. so i just wanted to thank you all for saying nice things to me, even if you don’t mean them, thank you for being there for me anyway <3
how come i have over 1500 followers anyway?? what are most of you doing here i hardly some of see you. what about this disaster area of a blog brought you here. thank you for your patronage. i appreciate you. if you’re reading this i’m glad you’re here even if i don’t get it.
More progress for that Underonline thing im workin on. These backgrounds are killing me though. Neither one works as one is mood and one is story based but both clash with the character. I’ll figure it out. Blehhh.
It just needs more contrast over all but hey, here’s another work in progress
This was fun and I havent had much time to paint like this recently. I MUST MAKE THE TIME!!!! UF Undyne’s my favorite character in all of undertale at the moment and im seeing some wicked cool story arcs for her from various other blogs like @undertalebrokenhome. I had been thinking about a UF kids comic of my own but never got too far with it and this blogs got a pretty interesting story developing. Cant wait to see what else comes from there.
I prolly wont have enough time for comics so ill have to stick to individual paints, sketches, and projects like this.
hi everyone! it’s the end of the year, so, i decided to make a short bias list, otherwise known as a follow forever bc i am extra, to so my appreciation towards my mutual followers and how much i adore all of you. some of you have been with me longer than others have, some of you are even great friends with me. i hope you all have a great new year and hopefully 2017 is much better than 2016.
What do you mean by that woody Allen post and the comment under it?
Well it’s pretty straightforward. Woody Allen’s comment is dismissing the “college-girl mentality” that “romanticizes” Sylvia Plath’s life/work, which is ironic because much of Plath’s writing was a result of the misogynistic world in which she lived where women’s intellectual and emotional attitudes were frequently dismissed as trivial. Plath’s work is important to young women because she addresses many issues that, unfortunately, still speak to them today, and learning about Plath and reading her writing has contributed to many a feminist awakening in relatively young readers. So Allen is perpetuating the misogynistic dismissal of young female attitudes by dismissing “college-girl” interest in her poetry as romanticization of her suicide.
However, what the post excellently points out as being most ironic is the fact that while female interest in the likes of Plath is often trivialized as a morbid whimsy, the writings of countless misogynistic creeps is romanticized by “college-boy mentality.” Misogynistic writers, indeed including the likes of Hemingway, Bukowski, Kerouac, etc., are taught in high schools and universities as Serious Literature and appreciation of their work is encouraged. Writers in other fields, notably including Woody Allen, are embraced by pop culture as Icons. Allen is indeed what the post calls an “irremediable creep” who is not only misogynistic but a pedophile, and yet his films are constantly celebrated as Art and he himself is seen as a cultural icon while his victim is publicly dismissed in the media as either being out of her mind or attention-hungry. He and the aforementioned writers and countless others like them are then idolized by young men who then go on to perpetuate the general misogynistic attitude, and mainstream culture never mocks them for it.
(For anyone wondering, the post to which I’m alluding is this one.)
Finally edited my blog, and right now there’s two muses, but my OC is wanting to interact, so like this post if we mutuals if you want a starter from Charlie the Swingin’ Spider (aka super gay spider that will smother you with love)
