(I was gonna post this to my art blog, but these designs are distinctly lampblack-y, so this seems like a better place for it - I love them so much, I wish we knew their names, it’s killin’ me. I don’t think they actually have canon names, but I’m really looking forward to what names fanon gives them, maybe based on file names? What are their models even labeled as? Just numbers?
Anyway as you can see they’re much more put together… but not without some changes to their 2D designs… The little spider guy is my fav. I couldn’t bring myself to give him standard pie-cut eyes, as adorable as they are on him, I think these have a lot more personality.
Someone requested I draw them as they are in the game, which I totally will do, but I have some rl stuff to do first! -HG)
Just a huge disclaimer since I’m not a pro ofc, I had a really hard time drawing Mariku the first time I drew him (and I still have a hard time tbh). His hairstyle in my works have changed, lol but I hope this helps! ^_^ b
Regarding the Put in Work quest line in AvAc (Tony wants to woo Black Widow, goes to Steve for help (because of course what else does one do?). Steve helps Tony plan out what to do, and then they enact it which also includes Steve helping Tony work out in the new Power Gym (where Steve’s action is Stay Strong and Tony’s action is Stay Sexy), and Tony’s like “hey hey not bad” and Steve’s like “hahaha wait you were serious? Here let me show you how to actually work out” (aw Steve you extra little gym rat you). And then Steve tells Tony he’s proud of him (aw), and has him go off to go ask BW out. Here are my screencaps for this: (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) )
ANYWAY so concept:
Howard’s putting pressure on Tony to like get a girlfriend and all that hetero stuff. Tony sets his sights on BW, goes to Steve for help wooing her bc Steve is handsome etc. Poor Steve lowkey has the beginnings of a crush on Tony, but he’s a good and supportive friend and will help Tony in his endeavor. He brainstorms with Tony, plots out a plan, even goes to the gym and gives him tips on how to train. Steve’s lowkey crush becomes a full-blown heart-wrenching crush.
ofc Tony is also besties with Jan so he tells her everything, and she’s like in the background of all this, maybe like goes and hangs out with Nat and sets the stage, like, “Tony’s sensitive pls don’t hurt him.” Nat’s like “…I’ll try but also I won’t just straight-up humor him.”
Tony and Nat go on a date (by going on a mission to Asgard or something? idk the AvAc format is odd) but he can’t stop talking about Steve and along the way Nat helps him realize he has a crush on Steve, and also his dad sucks and he should just get together with Steve. They come back and Steve’s like kinda sad but resigned and ready to be supportive, but the first thing Tony does is like fling himself into Steve’s arms and kiss him and confess, and meanwhile Jan and Nat had been lowkey hanging out (not dating-dating but they’d been getting together for coffee to chat about their dumbo friends and Tony’s dickhead dad and life) and with Tony realizing he wants to date Steve, Jan and Nat officially start dating. Everything is nice and all is well.
Davison’s comments have been on the mark and empathetic among a flood
of disrespectful tactless replies from people who months ago were crying
out for tolerance and acceptance “NOW”. Real life change takes time.
So will this.
His Tweet: “It might be more helpful to be
encouraging, and not simply scornful, of fans who are uncertain about
change.” has been the silver lining in this deluge of cryout out
Now these comments are again on target to why its sad. Not morally wrong. Just a mourning of a role model for boys.
I appreciation a male hero
actually still being portrayed rightly and not being the butt of every joke. I
do value and wish for a better portrayal of men in general that goes beyond the
a typical generalization that say guys are this or guys are that and that’s
it. I feel Doctor Who in the past decade has done a great job of
portraying are more well rounded male her
Respectfully- Colin Baker is wrong. Proof? The media wouldn’t be having the reaction of the little girl screaming in
delight about the casting of a girl, as their validation video to the
world at large and them saying “The video says it all”
models were gender neutral and just as people, than the switch of lead
actresses as heroines over the last several years (think Alias, Hunger
Games, NewStar Wars films and the overall great reception to the Wonder
Woman movie) would not be as celebrated and actually planned out and
pushed like it has been.
What is sad is in the
name of getting better role models for girls we have to squash and not
have the role model for boys be just as validated and important.
The idea of Tim only having so much brain power to spare after n-days no sleep and existing purely on coffee really amuses me.
Like, you have Tim, sitting at the Bat-computer running 4 advanced algorithms simultaneously - that he created specifically for whatever task he’s doing right now - while also speed-reading case files and drawing up diagrams to show trends and patterns because he had a hunch about his most recent case and the guy is a machine - no stop productivity and competence okay?
And then you try to have a conversation with him.
“Hey, Tim, what’s the file name for the model you created to predict Arkham breakouts?”
And Tim’s brain hasn’t currently allocated any power or space to process “Arkham breakouts” or “Speech”. So his response is, naturally, “Khhhhhh..”
It’s a weird hissing noise and it’s honestly troubling? Except, not anymore because they’re used to it and they’ve just learned to wait until Tim has finished so they can accost him before his brain routes power to some other task.
Jason and Damian totally take advantage of it, though:
(“Drake, I’m going to take your bike out tonight.”
“Excellent. I’ll return it to you. If it’s still in one piece.”)
(”Hey, Tim, I’m gonna post these pictures of you drooling all over Dick on the Internet.”
And Tim’s friends are honestly really disturbed. And they try to assure each other that “he’s really not a robot, promise. He’s a normal person. Semi-normal.”
“Maybe more coffee will fix him? He runs on that, right?”
(More coffee doesn’t help. However, the Coffee command automatically overrides all other commands and he stops what he’s doing to drink coffee before returning to his regular tasks.)
