i had to make a graphic

youtube

From Chaco dono’s Me!Me!Me! AU! I had to make the video after reading about it…. It’s short (35 secs) because I died in the middle of making it but….! Just want to leave it in my tags here too. 

Warnings: R-15, flashing lights

I tried to remake the logo before too. 

It was fun to learn new things ^^! I had to learn how to use After Effects for some graphics. Still mostly AviUtl though because it’s so easy to use.

anonymous asked:

Will you be drawing anymore art of Poseidon and Caenus?

Hey friend! 

You know, I really don’t know. I have this beautiful sprawling AU in my head based around those two character designs and reimagining all the Greek gods and goddesses as LGBTQA+ shitshows in a university setting that seems like it would be delightfully fun to draw, but I’m honestly not sure if it’s worth putting up with the shrieking eels. On the one hand I don’t want to just knuckle under and give in anytime someone doesn’t like something I draw, but on the other hand I do want to be respectful to the fact that the myth has some pretty gross origins I didn’t know about. Granted, that hasn’t stopped literally hundreds of people before me, but as far as I know Walt Disney never had Tumblr users caps-locking at him about how Zeus was Problematic which probably makes it somewhat easier to be like, “Yeah, fuck it, let’s tell a cool fun story and not introduce kids to graphic rape during their formative years.”

So, while I may continue drawing the two characters formerly known as Poseidon and Caeneus, I may re-skin them, so to speak, to be “generic water god” and “trans man who happens to be indestructible,” respectively. Any particular reason you’re asking or were you just curious?

Attention, squad…

On The Adventure Zone Graphic Novel, Blue Taako, and Representation

 Yesterday, we revealed some pages for our graphic novel adaptation of the first Adventure Zone arc, and received some criticism of the direction we went with for Taako’s coloring. This artwork reveal came some months after the first reveal of some of our characters, for which we also received criticism of our three leads, all of whom were white in these initial designs. Us and the graphic novel team realized that, yes, that is extremely bad, went back to the drawing board, and had several long discussions about how to best rectify this situation, resulting in the artwork revealed yesterday.

More or less all of the criticism we’ve received centers on Taako, whose skin is a pale blue color in these designs. What we’ve heard most is disappointment that Taako is not realized in these pages as a person of color — or, to be more specific, a Latinx or explicitly Mexican character. There was concern we had failed to follow through on an opportunity to get better representation for Latinx listeners, instead opting to take a safe route, and make Taako a fantasy color without any kind of real-world connection. Much of the criticism also focuses on how that color (or, to be more specific, green skin) has anti-semitic connotations.

This conversation was happening in certain corners of our fandom long before the graphic novel art reveal took place yesterday. We’ve heard criticism from some folks over our policy of not having canonical visual representations of any of our characters — a policy that has resulted in a genuinely humbling ocean of fan art, but also some instances of in-fighting between members of the community who take umbrage with one another’s disparate interpretations of these characters. Another criticism of that policy is that it inherently does not foster good representation, and in fact represents a noncommittal way of handling racial representation on this show.

Here’s the truth of the matter: I think all of this comes from this underlying friction between where The Adventure Zone and us, its creators, were when we started doing the podcast, and where we, the show, and you, the community, are at now.
