Hey folks, this artist is actually racist af. Feel free to message me for more info, it is a great pic but I refuse to support the artist because of some huge past issues they are apparently trying to “fix” with this. No more notes on this post, pass it on. They don’t deserve credit for POC representation after what they’ve done
“Huge past issues” = Me drawing a caveman Kylo with matted hair (that I called “dreadlocks” for lack of a better word, english isn’t my first language and in french, there’s only one word to describe it) 1 year ago and telling you all to fuck off when you went crazy on me and my friends for this one doodle because I refused to consider myself racist for drawing it. What is considered racist or problematic in your country might not be in another, I know how shocking it can be to learn that North America isn’t the center of the world and designated world leader of what’s considered politically correct.
Jfc take a step back and look at what your life has become.
Yesterday, one of you made a post and compared me to a klan member. I have been told to choke and die, to kill myself. About 50 hateful posts calling me slurs have been reported to me in the past 6 months.
You are all acting as if I have been posting the worst hate speech in the fandom and been harassing me for a year because I drew a picture you don’t agree with.
I know people who would have hurt themselves or fallen deep into depression for less, how do you sleep at night after telling someone to die over a picture?
And now you get mad because I have been drawing Finn and it has gotten a lot of notes.
But guess what? I have been successfully drawing him multiple times in the past, and I’ll draw him again. And I’ll get better at it and my pictures of him will continue to gain attention.
Because I like Finn.
I don’t give a shit about your “POC representation” points, contrary to you I like a character because he’s special to me, not because it will make me look better and “woke” to my online friends.
You don’t like it? That’s cool, then block me. That’s the magical door to the land of to never having to see my art again.
Because if you don’t, then believe me, it’s not the last time you see my art on your dashboard.
One of the very sweetest requests I’ve ever gotten. Thanks Briana Davies! Here’s what she told me about this very special quote:
When I was a little girl I got my dad a lighthouse figurine and I meant to write, “I love you with my heart and soul,” on the box it was in, but I instead wrote “I love you with my heart and soil.” Ever since then that’s how I sign all the gifts I give to him. It’s our ‘thing.’
Thoughts on Yamamoto Takeshi? *and also on going to bed at a reasonable time*?
I LOVE YAMAMOTO TAKESHI SO MUCH YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND
He is one of my favorite characters in KHR!! He’s so talented and kind? The greatest natural-born hitman. I love him so much he deserves the world. He deserves so much love i just guAH I LOVE YAMAMOTO TAKESHI.
I’m finally finished with this!!! I’ve been working on this on and off since last spring and I’m so happy I get to share it with you at last, you have no idea!
Now, before I get too ahead of myself, time for some backstory. For those unaware, the top image is spliced together from a panorama in the opening of Salty’s Lighthouse, an American cartoon whose creators bought the rights to use TUGS footage and spliced it poorly together to make filler for the show. If you know me well you may have heard me rant about it before, so I’ll give you the short version of my thoughts: It was awful. And that included awful 2D “animation” of our beloved tugboats.
So one day, I got to thinking: “Y’know, the art style of Salty’s Lighthouse really doesn’t do our boys any justice. I should fix this shot.” And so I did. Maybe that’s what TUGS would look like if it had a 2D spinoff that was actually competent? That would’ve been awesome. But instead, we got Salty’s. Oh well.
On a side note, I love how high Ten Cents looks in the background and how Top Hat seems so disappointed in him.
EDIT: WOW I forgot to color in Hercules’ glasses. I am a fool
