mecchi I really like your art!! the way you draw bodies and limbs and stuff is so cool! did you ever practice a lot of figure drawing?
thank you so much sweet anon !!!!!! i never really got into figure drawing, but i inspired myself a lot from ojamajo doremi !! heres some example of why ojamajo doremi is an excellent and dynamic show:
you can probably recognize a lot of my style in ojamajo doremi, and it’s because i grew up with this show, it’s, in my opinion, one of the best show ever, and THE best magical girl anime ((and you should DEFINITELY watch it))
People: all I see is s/u crit everywhere I cannot escape it :(
Me: 🤔 hmmmm
Looks in “s/u” tag: In recent I mostly saw posts in spanish and the occasional s/u liveblogging post
Now lets look in the top: mostly s/u screenshots, the occasional nice art.
Okay lets look in St*ven Un*verse tag:
First Recent: Lots of nice s/u art/posts and even asks with the title of s/u in it. So far no s/u critical posts.
Now top: a few videos, lots of nice positive art. Seems pretty good.
Now lets look in s/u critical tag:
First recent: a few good redraws of screencaps, asks with the tag name in it, long paragraphs of people whining about the tag, people insulting others for being critical, actual posts of people who loved the show who are disappointed by its current turn. And some art of redesigns that look nice.
Top: really good videos, some funny posts, some long text posts all in all pretty good.
So are you guys actively searching for these posts? Or am I just blind? 🤔
Skip Beat’s Chapter 249: Flying Shock, is out everyone! This chapter had so many info, it was overwhelming! Let us appreciate the exchange between Ren and Lorry here. 😆
Also, I like this new character (what was his name again?). He has been rooting for Kyoko and has some funny lines! I am looking forward to his role in his manga, especially after what he said at the last page. 😉
Okay I respect everyone's right to ship what they want but I genuinely do not understand the Aquaman and Superman ship. Do you have any idea? Like beyond the fact that Jason Mamoa is stupidly gorgeous.
I just wanted to throw this out there since there seems to be a lot of confusion. ALL of my gifs and screencaps are made using the original footage, NOT bluray. It’s kind of funny how often I see people talking about how it’s bluray footage when it actually isn’t. All I do is capture frames that are appealing to the eye and enhance the colors a bit.
So there isn’t some secret subbed or dubbed bluray leak that I’m using (or aware of, for that matter). It’s all just from the original.
It’s just terrific how Gayle, despite being furious and about to storm out of her high school reunion, decided to make a detour to the snack table so she could smuggle out some cupcakes in her fanny pack.
Here is Part 1 of some screencaps I took of “The Fliegel has Landed” in case anyone is interested. I loved how Sofia praised Cedric as the best Sorcerer ever once again, and he just responded with a funny, “I know!” Ha ha! He’s so overconfident all the time!
like I even need to post pictures. You all have this movie memorized
On Hiccup’s Arm Movements
This has probably been seen and analyzed before but I’m gonna bring it up again.
I see a lot of posts about Hiccup’s flailing arms but I don’t really see many analyzing why he does it. This particular habit is very familiar to me because I do it and some of my family and friends do it quite a bit. So when I watched this in the movie, that instantly jumped out at me and helped me understand Hiccup’s character.
Have you ever seen someone with limited English try to explain something to you? When words aren’t enough, many of us will resort to describing things with our hands in an effort to bridge that gap in understanding. You can see this veryclearly in those screencaps. Hiccup is not trying to be funny, he is not hyper, and he is not trying to call attention to himself. Hiccup is trying (very hard) to connect with his father and help him understand what he is saying. This is not because he does not know enough English (Norse, I suppose) but because their viewpoints are so different from each other that Hiccup has to use every resource he has to help people understand him.
Hiccup knows what he wants to say, he sees it in his mind, visually (hiccup is very very very visual–that’s another problem. translating from visuals to words is pretty challenging), and now he just has to explain it to his father. When he explains that he does not want to fight dragons so he moves his hands like he’s punching something. He then mentions bread-making vikings and makes kneading motions with his fingers. Finally, he talks about maybe having insufficient small home repair vikings and he pretends to be repairing some imaginary object.
His “flailing arms” habit sticks around even after the movie is over. He is still hiccup and thus is overly visual and overly strange which makes it hard for others to understand him. In fact, years of doing it has probably ingrained it in his personality.
My point is, Hiccup’s mannerisms are much more than just a weird quirk. They are a tool, a crutch, and evidence of his effort to try to communicate with others. Whether he realizes it or not, he spends a lot of energy trying to communicate effectively. Heh, no wonder he’s introverted.
