Something that I really appreciate about The Clone Wars is that they make Anakin a likable, loving, genuinely good person while reaffirming and enhancing his more negative qualities. For example the show makes it clear that Anakin is a good person, but a selfish one. 

In the arc where Ahsoka get’s kidnapped and hunted by lizard people we see this very subtle selfish quality of Anakin’s. When Ahsoka comes home from her traumatizing ordeal what is the very first thing that Anakin does? He makes things about himself. He makes things about his failure to protect her, his  concern, his worry, his fear for her, his own shortcomings. He is obviously coming from a place of genuine love and concern for Ahsoka, but it’s still about him. There’s nothing evil about that kind of selfishness, seeing a situation from your own point of view doesn’t mean you don’t care, anyone who says that they don’t make things about themselves is almost definitely a liar but you can’t deny it. In that moment Ahsoka had to comfort Anakin. That moment is beautiful and poignant regarding their bond and their friendship, but it’s also very telling if you look at it through a slightly more cynical lens.

It reminds me of in AOTC when Anakin kneeled at his mother’s grave and talked about himself and his feelings of inadequacy rather than his mother herself. Or in ROTS when Anakin was concerned for Padme’s life and committed to saving it in a way he knew that she wouldn’t approve of. When he pledges himself to Palpatine he doesn’t say he wants to save her life because she deserves to love or anything that has to do with her. It’s because he couldn’t live without her, he needs her, he loves her, she can’t leave him because he couldn’t take that. It’s about him. 

Anakin’s feelings of selfishness don’t mean that he doesn’t actually love or care about these people, his possessive nature and selfishness actually come from his love for these people. He just can’t separate the way he feels about these people from the individuals themselves. He always makes it about himself and his needs and desires, not theirs. It’s possible that the first person that Anakin really loved in a nonselfish way was Luke by the end of ROTJ.

I don’t know that I’m making sense here but this topic fascinates me.

alwaysfantasticmentality  asked:

What's your process for getting that clean outline around your colored drawings?(like the white outline that's in a lot of your pics)

oh!! i can show u how to do that!!

first you set your magic wand to detection mode: transparency (strict) and   target: all image with anti-aliasing selected. then you create a new layer under all of your layers. then click on the whole image (make sure if u have a background layer that it’s hidden. 

then you click selection 

then you select increment. you can select it as many times as you want depending on how thick u want the outline to be!!!!

then make a new layer (i have so many x_x;;) and then ya just.

click bucket and fill the layer w any color u want the outline to be!! :3 (i usually keep it white)

tada!!! 

u got urself an outline

sometimes it wont exactly be even or perfect, so i like to zoom in n kinda comb thru it and erase the bits sticking out or use a pen to fill in uneven parts/fix gaps

any brush/eraser will do. i usually hit the little square under the primary/secondary colors square to erase. it makes whatever brush u use an eraser basically!!

there that looks a lil better

gosh i hope that made sense i s ucc at tutorials of any kind hhhh
