my favorite cartoon of all time

ninjakasuga  asked:

I honestly want meet Ian Flynn, and all the others who put their blood and sweat into the book who actually give a damn (and didn't turn into jackasses); look them in the eye and tell them 'thank you for keeping my favorite comic book alive for almost twenty-five years. For giving me a reason to still love the comic even after the games turned to crap, the 'good' cartoons dried up and even after a forced reboot kept the good times rolling and almost reaching 300. So close, but alas.

*nod* No kidding. I’d like to give Flynn and the current crew medals for all they did and all they kept doing even in the face of having to rework virtually everything from the ground up after the reboot. 

There’s something I need to point out with this whole “art style stealing” issue. 

And that’s yes, maybe alot of young artists “copy” other art styles. But we all do it. I’ll pay anyone who can show me their art from when they were first starting out and have it not look like some anime’s art style, or their favorite cartoon. It’s how we learn. Over time the pictures you draw develop from looking like Invader Zim to your own unique look, and that’s how it’s always been.

For example, here’s a drawing by @spibbles, someone whose dealt with this alot.

and here is a drawing I made just now, my attempt to draw this same picture exactly, their style and all.

even when I am blatantly trying to recreate the exact same picture, you can tell they were done by two different artists. You can’t copy an art style exactly. Can you be influenced? Yes. Is that wrong? No.

And I promise you if this was ten years ago, my drawing would look like this, just like hundreds of yours would.

Cause everyone starts out using someone else’s art style.

If they aren’t tracing or stealing the artist’s creations themselves, leave them alone.

International Women’s Day: Adventure Time

One of my favorite qualities about this show

 is the diverse range of strong female characters

all with completely different personalities,

 all with depth, good and bad sides, 

and two male protagonists who always treat them right. 

Good job Adventure Time creators.

okay but like, imagine that the lego batman movie existed in the dc universe, just with different names for the characters. how would anyone even react. bruce is probably sooo grumpy that he was portrayed that way but all of his kids are pulling out receipts like "i can think of 5 separate times where you were physically incapable of pronouncing the word sorry, actually"

haha dick jason and babs are all like I CANNOT BELIEVE A CARTOON GOT YOUR PERSONALITY TO A T OH MY GOD!!!! And Bruce is so grumpy like ‘shut up kids I love you but you’re entirely wrong unlike my FAVORITE kids over here.”

and meanwhile Tim, Cass and Damian are looking at each other like “well……..Dick and them aren’t…..wrong….”

even damian’s like ‘sorry father, the cartoon was right. therefore, at this moment, my idiot siblings are right. including drake’ tim who’s dragging out literal physical receipts and proof and evidence and bruce is like HOW TIM. WHY DO YOU HAVE ALL THIS.

Annie Awards - #SaveWOY - Trending fourth

Dear Gemma Cummins! I apologize in advance, my English is not very good. First of all, I want to say thank you again for what you do. The campaign SaveWOY means a lot to all of us. So, I want to offer one event. You know, that Annie Awards will come soon. I want to offer to support our favorite cartoon and its creators on this day. To arrange one more “Trending Twenty-Seventh” (but February 4 or the day before). Likewise, to assign the exact time and make a bomb of fan support. Without any limitations. Let all the fans to share their thoughts, impressions, fanarts, favorite characters, episodes and jokes. Let they explain, why they love Wander Over Yonder, and why it and its creators really deserve this award. I believe, that this month is really important for this campaign. And it would be great to support Craig McCracken. Dave Thomas, Frank Angones, all command on this important day.


It certainly sounds like a great idea. I’m sure the WOY team would love the support. This might be a little short notice for some fans though but we should still try!

So Wanderers, what do you think? Shall we get WOY trending on Feb 4th? 8pm EST, tag “Wander Over Yonder” and “savewoy”, the topic is anything. Lots of posts of words of support, why the show deserves to win, anything you want! 

Let’s show our support! The Annie Awards could hold the key to Wanders future after all.

Whats the first thing you ever drew?

I used to draw fantastic cities and geometric shapes, I wanted to be an architect more than anything else when I was a kid. This is mostly thanks to watching THE SECRET CITY when I was about 7 or 8?

Afterward I had gotten used to just drawing in my spare time and started cartooning. I used to draw comic strip characters a fair bit (Garfield, The Far Side, etc). By elementary school I started working with things like pastels and markers, even doing collages. I got really inspired by video game artwork as I got older and used to draw lots of things like fantastic Castlevania interiors, that evolved into trying to draw more characters as well and at the same time I had started getting into anime / manga / video games. I would draw all my favorite characters… (man I know I have them buried somewhere if I find ‘em I’ll post ‘em)

There was no world wide web when I was going through puberty so other than sneaking around to find my dad’s secret stash of porno mags I would just draw my own porn. It was a huge secret thrill to draw all these weird scenarios out and then figure out how to destroy them without getting caught so to speak. The first boobs I ever drew were “Princess Toadstool”s like a lot of people I had an unhealthy fascination with her… uhh anyway one pic I destroyed I wish I had kept, it wasn’t overly sexual it was Angela from Gargoyles wearing Belle’s dress… (!?) ANYway…

I drew quite a bit up until I started college which basically destroyed my free time, I did dribs and drabs here and there, I also managed to score my first copy of Corel Photo-Paint 8 in 1998 and I think by ‘99 I had finally gotten my hands on a scanner, I still have some of my art from that time

(why yes that IS a Crown Royal dice bag - such a NERD)

Following college there was a long dark period where I worked for an EXTREMELY shitty company and I basically replaced all my hobbies with working like a slave for a souless motherfucker and drinking. When I finally quit that hellhole in 2005 I discovered I suddenly had this thing called “free time” (funny when you aren’t working 90 hours a week)

By then I was still using Corel but trying to teach myself how to colour stuff…

GAZE INTO THE ABYSS PEOPLE this was me 12 years ago
(and my old icon)

YIKES!

I was drawing with a MOUSE like a common mouth breather …well… not so much drawing but click and dragging points with the horrid vectoring tools in Photoshop (not Illustrator uggghhhhhh).

I started getting better at colour, in fact I think I really met @grimphantom2 by colouring one of his Kiva drawings, I mean we knew each other from WWOEC but not as closely at that time, all we knew was we had good taste in cartoon ladies

PLZ MEMBER THIS

Anyway it’s been a long ride since then, 11 years on deviantArt and roughly 12 years of regular drawing. Now I can almost draw a circle again!

…and color pinups like a real boy…

…and pictures that mean a lot to me personally…

I’M JUST A WACKY FUNSTER FROM FUNLAND

The Annie Awards are happening tonight, and almost all of my favorite cartoons - including my absolute favorite - have been nominated for big awards! In order to celebrate, I drew all of my favorite Disney XD characters hanging out together during the red carpet pre-show! ^-^

Oh my gosh, was it fun to design outfits for everyone! I gave Mabel very special accessories - since she loves to make her own outfits, and the Annies is a celebration of animated films and the like, she got creative and made herself a film-strip hairbow and film-reel earrings! I gave Dipper an alien-head lapel pin as well; I couldn’t resist…xD

Also, this is my first time drawing Wander and Sylvia, and it’s one of the few times I’ve ever drawn Star and Marco (I haven’t gotten around to uploading the rest of my SVTFOE fanart yet…lol), so I certainly hope I did them justice. ^^;

To Alex Hirsch and the ever-lovely Gravi-Team Falls - thank you so much, yet again, for creating a show as beautiful, thought-provoking, suspenseful, and heartwarming as Gravity Falls. It’s sad to see that this is the last year you’ll be eligible for the Annies, since the show’s been over for nearly a year, but you guys crafted the greatest and most satisfying series finale I have ever seen, and you MORE than deserve the nominations you earned this year, ESPECIALLY the ‘best writing’ nomination. Here’s to hoping you get at least one more Annie tonight! I’ll be rooting for you, and I’m sure plenty of other Fallers will be, too!

To Craig McCracken and the wonderful Wander Over Yonder crew - congratulations on all your nominations! It’s SO GREAT to see you up for Best Animated Series/Special for Children for the second year in a row! I’m so sorry that WOY was cancelled before you had the chance to finish telling your story; you guys deserve so much better. But what you did have time to give to the world was simply wonderful, and at least ASIFA recognizes your hard work! Wishing you all the best of luck tonight!

To Daron Nefcy and the amazing crew of Star vs. the Forces of Evil - my goodness, but you guys have been KILLING it! SVTFOE has turned out to be five times more intense and fun to watch than I originally thought it was after seeing the pilot two years ago! I can’t WAIT until the 'Star Bomb’ begins on Monday!

I’ll be posting this on Twitter as well, so hopefully, Alex, Craig, and Daron will see this! I hope everyone enjoys this! Now let’s (virtually, in most cases…xD) go to the Annies! :D

Happy birthday Kenny McCormick! For as long as I can remember, you’ve been my favorite South Park character, and my number one favorite cartoon character of all time. Despite your absence in season 20, we still love you, you cheeky little bastard. Last year, I uploaded everything I own of Kenny McCormick, and since then, I’ve gotten way more Kenny merch, including a picture I won in an eBay auction autographed by the man himself, Trey Parker! @southparkdigital
