so it turns out there are a ton of panels that dgaider and karin & pweekes will be on at gaymerx (incl a really really something panel titled “patrick karin & you what do your dev allies need to hear”) and I know this is just me being a tired depressive fuck right now but I really feel like if I’m going to enjoy my time there at all I’m just going to have to skip out on all of those panels entirely

bc it’s just so tiring waiting for men to actually care about wlw im tired

like when the next big AAA dragon age game comes out I’ll still be here and I’ll help undo the whitewashing again and I’ll help with the bi mods again but like let someone else do the emotional work of trying to convince nebulous-them, whoever is in charge, whoever has decision-making power, that literally all they’ve ever had to do is pay more attention to their hiring practices

that’s it. they don’t need to field questions from fans at a panel at a convention. they just need to start hiring more diverse employees and ask them

FUCK YOU CLOUDS!!! I WANTED TO SEE THE LUNAR ECLIPSE BUT NOOOOO YOUR FAT NEBULOUS ASSES HAD TO BE RIGHT THERE

SEE YOU IN 17 YEARS MOTHERFUCKERS. YOU BETTER HAVE CLEARED TF OUTTA THERE BY THEN
When we talk about Latinx Representation we should ask ourselves, which Latinx? It’s interesting that, despite Jane the Virgin being about a Venezuelan family (played entirely by Puerto Rican actresses) and the Salazars on Fear the Walking Dead being Salvadorian (played by a Panamanian actor and a Swedish actress!), both stories are similar in that they are generically about “immigration.” But there’s nothing to make them specifically Venezuelan or specifically Salvadorian. Because to Hollywood, and to the average viewer, there’s no difference. Latinx are simply generic, interchangeable brownish people from that ever-nebulous part of the world that’s “South of the Border.” And don’t they all pretty much have the same story? Don’t they?

See up my first rendition of NMM. The nebulous mane always caught my eye, and as a FX animator, I always wondered if I could reproduce it. But  in COTN we noticed that these manes tend to look a bit stiff in practice. 

Time passed and if you have been wondering what we been up to, you can see it in the second panel. We are working on a Ponyphonic song “The Moon Rises” , voiced by Eileen Monty.

To avoid  any confusions with the actual show we have done things our way, and gave her a Maleficent Flare (and a dash of Ariel too!).  What do you think?

I love how Lion is animating her. :3

PS: Do not ask us when it will be done, quality is the priority, for growing both as an animator and a painter.  Also, this rendition of the character is not final. FX and lighting are missing, as well as fx for the scene.

you know what really needs to be made and advertised more? kid friendly medical equipment

pill cases with steven universe and fluttershy and perry the platypus plastered on the cover, canes that come in bright sparkly colors and have stickers and fun ways to customize them, wheel chair wheel covers that light up and come in the colors of people’s hogwarts houses, nebulizer masks that make you look like your favorite cartoon character, leg braces and molds that are painted a kid’s favorite color, IV poles that look like flowers and giraffes, MIC-KEY* tubes with mickey mouse on them, cannula tubes made to make like funny moustaches or epipens that look like magic wands

there are disabled and chronically ill kids and babies, and even teens and young adults, who would feel a lot better about all the shit they have to do for their health if their supplies was more customized to them and their interests, the same way waterbottles and lunchboxes are

Wearing the same clothes for like a week straight in wet snow tends to make everything kind of… stanky.

She remains as nebulous as my best poem […] If she has remained a phantom to me, I may have been one to her: I suppose she had been solely attracted by the obscurity of my poetry; then tore a hole through its veil, and saw a stranger’s unlovable face.
