perfect development

I think the biggest challenge in making an animated pixel art movie or show is how underdeveloped pixel art as a medium is.

Pixel art is only a few decades old, and it was all but completely abandoned by most of the game industry 20 years ago. And the vast majority of pixel art out there is for video games.

Animation also used to be a daunting and challenging practice. But after over a century of animators and producers perfecting it, developing techniques of animation and production to make it easier, look better and be quicker and cheaper to produce, it became an established medium.

Pixel art animation just needs to be developed more as a medium.

Season three instead of having Lotor get into constant fights with Keith over Allura cause he sees how much he likes her, he gets into constant fights with Keith over Lance cause he sees how much he likes him.

EPISODE 7:

I’d been waiting for him to break down and let out all the negative feelings he’d been keeping… and I honestly loved it when it happened.

I’ve never seen a character development this beautiful. And it’s all because of Viktor.

So many sides to Karamel, tho...

Here we have two…

…Adorable dorks being cute af every chance they get.

…Puppy-eyed frenemies seeing things differently.

Allies working together for a common goal.

…Drunk buddies having fun at the bar.

…Lonely friends with a shared past.

…Training partners fighting for the city.

…Planet-wise neighbors.

…Planet-wise rivals.

…Alien refugees.

And I could go on all night.

Okay so there’s gotta be SOMETHING to the Shimada clan’s whole dragon summoning thing so HERE GOES MY SPECULATION starting with shit off the top of my head:

something, something, “Electromagnetic Energy” something “Holograms”

I think the tattoos do have something to do with this, because let’s be honest, we’re already on the road to having digital projections on our bodies and tattoos that serve electronic/digital purposes

I think that the whole Dragons thing is exclusive to the Shimada clan because the tattoos are a type of technology that their clan developed and perfected over decades.

IIRC, Dragons have always been a symbol of power in Japanese culture; not only that, but from what we can tell of Hanzo’s tattoo and the Shimada symbol (a blocky spiral?) is that the repeated theme of those tattoos is clouds and lightning. Why?

Maybe the tattoo ink is made of, or contains whatever energy source is needed to create the Dragon projections we’ve seen Hanzo and Genji use. (Hence why Hanzo’s tattoo glows when he uses his Dragonstrike)

Now the next part: whatever energy source is in the ink, the Shimadas can use their preferred weapons as a conduit for “The Dragons” to travel, or power up.

Hanzo’s Dragonstrike first has to manifest using the arrow he fires as a conduit.  However turning a large pool of electrical energy into a properly formed hologram that causes intense harm to opponents may need some travel time. Maybe this is why DVa blocking his initial arrow can cancel the ult altogether.

And how Dragonstrike possibly causes damage is that if the hologram touches opponents, it probably electrocutes them for the duration of contact until they’re incapacitated or killed- which probably why Hanzo’s weapon is called the “Storm Bow” and why his ult is named the way it is, because it’s like a very well controlled Lightning Strike. This may also be why Hanzo’s ult can travel through walls, but I don’t fully know the science behind that.
(But surely with Overwatch being decades in the future, and one of the fighters in game is literally a climatologist, I’m sure that’s plausible.)

Genji’s Dragonblade, on the other hand (in game, at least) manifests with the energy appearing holographically as his Dragon first, and then that energy not only travels through his Odachi, but possibly through his body as well.

Hence, Genji’s glowing green eyes when he uses his ult, not only increasing the deadliness of Genji’s sword, but possibly enhancing his strength and reflexes, which works, even prior to when Hanzo practically murdered him.
Also, interestingly enough, this could even make Genji’s Agility (double jumping, ridiculous ability to selectively deflect enemy fire, quick dash) make sense with his Young skins. He could have been able to tap into that electrical energy in his tattoo in order to consciously do feats like these.

This may also explain why, technically speaking, when Sombra hacks or EMPs Hanzo and Genji, why they can’t use their ultimate abilities- because their abilities are actually technologically based rather than just being “magic mythical dragons”

And, on another note, this also works with Hanzo’s Wolf skins as well, because pretty much all he would need to do is change the “holograms” from dragons to wolves, and he has tattoos with that skin as well.

Suddenly, “Let the dragon consume you” and “the dragon becomes me” actually make even more sense

Anyways, that’s my speculation on the Shimada’s dragons. What do y’all think?

Every Fandoms OTP (Valentines Day)

So yeah, that what makes people (including myself) ship two characters that have history with each other. 

Latest Opm webcomic thoughts:

Oh my god, so many feels for the latest ONE updates… Each set of pages just keeps building the anticipation for what comes next (he’s so damn good at that, the same tension stuff he does in Mob too). The brilliance is in how ONE weaves heavier content and humor, subverting common expectations and yet delivering satisfying results in surprising ways (even when he plays tropes straight). So I have faith in him. :’3

My biggest concern is just how will Genos respond to Saitama’s words. I anticipated he would not want to hit Saitama (lol using the excuse to not get Saitama’s clothes dirty, heh pls XD), as Genos really wants to talk to him, and not really fight. The LAST time Genos heard from Saitama was during the Garou battle, when Saitama was verbally and physically beating down on Garou’s core issue. An issue that similarly shook Genos: he KNOWS he cannot get stronger relying on parts alone. That is, again, the similarly ‘half-assed’ way towards the goal. That mentally, set Genos at an impasse - concerning his progress, his choice to become a cyborg, how much he’s limited himself two-fold by going down that path, and just how strong can he still improve himself? He’s probably seeking confirmation and/or assurance from Saitama, for him to say what Genos already suspects, and if he’s made any progress at all. 

Saitama…oh man I’M GLAD he notices Genos feels down, and TRIES to lighten him up (lol). Addressing his ‘teacher role’ is what I wanted to see from him, but even still, this kind of thing is hard for Saitama to do, so he typically bullshits his way thru by stating the obvious (that Genos is ‘dazzling,’ which omg comes across quite gay :’3). Which, is a comment on Genos’ appearance and parts, and not his skills, which I suspect is not what Genos wants to hear. Even if it’s one of the nicest compliments Saitama’s said to him (and figuratively, may have honesty and merit in how Saitama views him), I doubt Genos will be satisfied by this answer. 

Hence his silence. The same kind of silence where he sucks up Saitama’s bullshit without saying anything (like for the mouse sushi t-shirt), but NOW is the perfect opportunity for Genos to call him out for it. I WANT Genos to reveal his frustrations. If Saitama can’t come up with anything substantial, then Genos has to give him food for thought on what’s really bothering him.

Saitama too, is not without problems. The last question Tatsumaki gave him, about whether he has any real friends (outside the H.A.), gave him pause. Saitama’s since put that thought aside, but NOW is a good time for him to finally address just what Genos is to him. If his ‘teacher game’ is not adequate for their relationship, then I want Saitama to realize what is better for them. This is the perfect chance for a heart-to-heart between them.

I see thoughts from people worried that Genos might leave, or that this is all building up to be a gag. But honestly? Either one feels like a pretty cheap cop-out. ONE knows when things are important (hello latest Mob arc) even if he happens to swing in humor (Mob’s monkey t-shirt). And Genos has already established in the previous pages how he wants to stay with Saitama (their smaller apartment issue). If Genos leaves, that will be taking a step backwards, instead of progressing forwards. So I only see positive development from this. Genos’ issue is a mental one, that he continues to improve by living with Saitama and getting more in touch with his humanity. His will, his determination – all of this is more important than superficial parts (the ‘half-assed’ traits). The answer to his strength is from the inside. Together, I think they can figure it out, by continuing to help each other (even if they’re oblivious and not quite aware of exactly how yet, they’ll get there eventually). Again, I have faith in ONE. :)

“Tell her,” Frederick urges with a slow nod.
Connor doesn’t balk, not once. He slowly but surely rotates to face me. Calmly, he says, “Five seconds. I tried leaving sooner, but I did see you half-dressed.” He pauses. “I didn’t see you giving head, if that’s what you’re asking.”
“That’s what I always thought, and I really, really appreciate it. What you did…”
“Don’t.” Connor’s deep blue eyes never dart away from mine. “Don’t appreciate me, Daisy. Because it wasn’t for you. I manipulated a man and used your evidence to further a ploy that benefited me and my family.”
He can paint the selfish portrait, but that picture is only half-complete.
“Maybe your intentions were never to help me, but you did. And it’s not the only thing you did.” It’s more than just interrupting Julian and me during Princesses of Philly. “How many photographs have you bought? The ones that photographers took of me backstage when I modeled?” I’m not sure if there’s more than just the one from Paris, but I remember that one like a deep, visceral scar in my body. Photographers captured pictures of me naked backstage at a Paris fashion show.
I never knew what happened to them.
They never leaked online. In time, I realized that Connor Cobalt is the only one who had the resources to buy them. To stop them.
To help me.
I believe he did it because he loves Rose, and Rose loves me. What power their love truly has.
Connor observes me for a second, his features harder to interpret. Then he turns to our therapist. “You see, I’m not as self-serving as you believe me to be.”
“As you believe yourself to be,” Frederick corrects.
