too many fan characters

The Boy Who Couldn’t Hold His Breath Underwater…

I could not get this moment of the series out of my head, even though there were SO MANY beautiful moments, I saw Isak on the back of that bike in episode 4 and thought “…dear god he looks like a Caravaggio Painting!” (And don’t even get me started on the art historical/thematic implications of that visual reference…) And I knew I just had to draw it.

Anyway, so here it is! For some reason, it looks weird when I take it out of the drawing app but regardless,  Enjoy!

I might also make this available as a print eventually if anyone is interested

Holy crap I drew art!! Shocking I know.

I feel like a bazillion years ago SailorFailures said it’d be an interesting idea if people took those fashion photosets where the models heads are cropped off and tried to pick what outfit a senshi would wear, and well, I found this photoset of Zuhair Murad’s dresses and…here we are!

The inners the outers and some villains for good measure. Dark Mercury made it in because she is my bae and PGSM is the greatest thing ever.

Since people tend to re-post/upload my art everywhere, I decided to do a Fairy Tail “master” video, haha. 

Part II will come soon! :)

Voltron Week: Day 7 - Crossover/AU

A Star Wars!AU I’ve been working on for approximately forever. This was so much fun to do! Special thanks to the anon who first gave me this idea, and to my Skype squad who helped me with ideas and motivated me so much through the process of drawing these.

(Psst, click on each drawing to enlarge, and to see my caption about which character is which!)

Movies with Aubrey Plaza

Okay so the ones I’ve seen:

The To-Do List: really good message about sexuality and first times, she’s acting great, I am really not a big fan of the 90s though, so that choice of setting was not my favorite thing. I did like seeing her in such an assertive emotionless role.

About Alex: I love her role in this, she’s really nice and I love the way they portrayed her, it’s different from what you see from her, and overall, she’s great. I wasn’t a big fan of the movie overall because there were too many characters and storylines for me to get really attached.

Ned Rifle: didn’t understand the story at all, maybe I’m just dumb. Didn’t understand why she acted so bad because her acting is terrible. And I say this as someone who loves her a lot. She was horrible. Terrible movie, never watching it again.

Addicted to Fresno: the movie is fine, it has really funny moments, I’m not quite sure I get the message it’s trying to send overall. I love her part, though, I found it was really good representation and it wasn’t like what you see her do a lot.

Safety Not Guaranteed: Incredible movie from end to end. Just perfection. The plot is great, the message makes sense, the acting is amazing. Her acting is great, and she’s the lead so we see a lot of it. Just flawless.

Happy birthday, Peter!

Here I was patting myself on the back for being so clever because I rigged it so that there was only one plausible route the mono could have taken based on when these relationships (except for the Vriska/Rose kismesitude, which exists only in fanon) take place, and then I realized that Terezi’s relationships with Dave and Gamzee happened before her relationships with John and Vriska, so actually there were zero plausible routes based on canon. (Also, they were in different universes, but since when has that mattered to this comic?) Oh, well.

(Also, I guessed with the nature of Sol’s relationships and simplified Aradia and Equius’. So don’t complain about that.)

You know what was also a pain? Fitting sixteen characters onto one panel.

Sorry for there not being a comic yesterday. My queue ran out and I didn’t notice. Also, I was sick most of last week.

Grumbles about cosplay being left out as part of “fan art”

Realizes that gif makers get almost no recognition

Realizes people sing fan songs with no recognition

Realizes people build the damn car from the ground up with no recognition

here are some Snape/James confessions from before we stopped taking them:

1) I hate when people try to excuse what the Marauders did. It wasn’t just one scene. The Marauders bullied other students too (as proven by the detention reports Harry saw in Snape’s numerous detentions) and they were horrid to anyone not like them. They were immature bullies. One can only hope they grew up.

2) After reading or watching Harry see Snape’s memories in The Deathly Hallows, does anyone, amongst feeling pity for Snape (and maybe Harry) ,realize that James was a teenager bullying other teenagers but Snape was an adult bullying teenagers? I feel bad for Snape, but I do not think he should have treated some students (Harry, Ron, Hermione, Neville) the way he did in books and movies 1-6.

3) I think too many fans try to black-and-white the characters in the series. A person doing a bad thing doesn’t make them a bad person. Everyone has made mistakes, everyone has been an asshole at some point in their life. It is how we make amends for those mistakes that matter. Snape was an asshole, but he tried to make amends (albeit a bit late). James was an asshole too, and as far as we know, he changed and tried to make amends. If you love a character, you should accept their flaws as well.

4) I feel like the reason James is made to be so villainous and Sirius is not (in reference to Snape) is exactly that of when you blame somebody else for something when they are not there to defend themselves. The huge admiration Harry has for Sirius makes it hard for us to make him any less than what he has been put on a pedestal for, thus we compensate by blaming James for the most part as he cannot be made any less than a hero because he is not alive anymore. (Penny for a thought?)

5) Sure James and Sirius bullied Snape in school but Sirius’s prank on Snape is weirdly beyond that. He tried to get another student murdered by one of his best friends. If he had succeeded, Remus would’ve never forgiven himself or Sirius. He would’ve had to leave the school and possibly been tried for murder. And in the 3rd book we’re told that adult!Sirius doesn’t regret it. Nowhere else are we shown Sirius has a murderous streak and I feel like JK’s writing here was completely out of character.

Please let’s skip a moment of our lives to look at those POTATOES.

  • Gifs are NOT mine, but the editor has all my admiration
  • I just found the gifs and come on, you cannot be a No. #1 teen wolf fan and don’t miss the old show; too many characters died, and am I the only one sick about that ?
