”there is a difference between valid criticism and plain unnecessary negative comments. If you think something someone has made is bad, tell them why you think it’s bad and what you think could be done to make said bad thing look good.
Just telling someone something they’ve made is bad doesn’t help anyone.
However if someone actually gives you a valid criticism you better not just shrug that shit off you hear me I will come to your house in the middle of the night don’t you test me”
This shot from the movie The General is the most expensive shot in silent film history. It was filmed in a single take, that had to be perfect, with a real train and a ‘dummy’ engineer (notice the white arm hanging out the conductors window). Some of the locals who came to watch the filming, thought the dummy was a real person and screamed in horror; supposedly, one person even fainted.

Being good to each other is so important, guys.

This reminds me of Chindogu
Hey, thanks. Not sure she started out as such a great idea, though. Hell, initially the gag was that she was going to be this character, kind of like Squee, who was just a focus for terrible life-events, only specifically dating events.
Seriously, a female character defined by her disastrous interactions with guys, ya know? Now, it’s not like people like that don’t exist but I didn’t exactly want to be doing that kinda thing by the time I Feel Sick Came around. There’s still a bit of that bad date stuff in there, but I hope that it doesn’t color the character as being one note in that way. Ultimately I Feel Sick was just me having fun with a far more confident, more badass kind of fuckup than Johnny’s kind of fuckup.
Johnny was more of a joke on people who think they know everything and deal with being treated like shit by only becoming more shit, and even worse, god-like, untouchable, pretentious shit. Devi was just a bit more grounded while hopefully not being boring. I think it’s easy to WANT to be Johnny, superficially anyhow, but Devi was probably the more realistic option, or at least slightly less absurd.
I always like when people say I Feel Sick is their favorite work of mine, and it’s always a little funny when they tell me I wrote a cool female character. It’s funny because I sure as hell wasn’t even trying to convincingly portray any kind of female experience so much as just write a character I’d like. She’s just another way of telling a condensed version of a situation Johnny probably went through, with a slightly happier outcome.
This is beautiful and perfect and EXACTLY as the world should be.

Throwback Thursday: Warner Brother Studio Store
Before AOL merged with Time Warner, there were actual Warner Bros retail stores throughout the country! There is a mall 40 minutes from my hometown that used to have an actual brick-and-mortar Warner Brothers Store, and it was one of the few biggest highlights for me whenever we went to the mall. This particular one (not pictured above) had a gigantic screen in the back of the story playing cartoon short, clips, TV commercials, anything Warner Brothers had at that time. So yes, technically…. anyone could waltz into the store and watch a full Looney Tunes short on a gigantic screen with the sound emanating through the entire room FOR FREE. The cashiers found it a chore to focus on their job whenever Pepe Le Pew made out with someone behind them! :D :D
Anybody else remember this episode? In it, a female villain called Femme Fatale is stealing millions of dollars in Susan B. Anthony coins. Naturally, the Powerpuff Girls go to stop her. She then convinces them that men are all horrible because female superheroes aren’t as well known as male superheroes, even asking Blossom to name some to where her only answer is Wonder Woman.
They start acting bitter, refusing to do chores when the Professor asks and even telling the Mayor to save the town himself. Ms. Bellum and Ms. Keane talk to the girls and basically explain that being mean to guys won’t do anything and that isn’t the kind of message feminists should put out.
They proceed to beat up Femme Fatale while giving her a history lesson about Susan B. Anthony, the story where she voted and was found guilty because women couldn’t vote back then, but when the judge wanted to let her off easily because she was a woman, she forced them to take her to jail. The girls handle her and the lesson is that misandry will not stop misogny and we all should just respect each other.
And it fell on Tumblr’s deaf ears.
Nope, tumblrinas and Anita are outraged by this episode
"STOP MAKING ANIMATED CHARACTERS THAT BEHAVE LIKE US !!!!! STRAW FEMINISTS! STRAW FEMINISTS!!!! THESE PEOPLE LITERALLY DO NOT EXIST!"
Female game designer: Was Anita looking out for me when she erased my existence as well as pretty much every woman involved by the industry because it contradicted her narrative and got in the way of her presenting herself as a pioneer liberating the game industry, and came up with ways to demonise and ignore the games and characters I helped create because they again, contradicted her narrative?
Female artist: Was Anita looking out for me when she stole my art work and ignored my requests to negotiate, even though she had a quarter of a million but somehow felt she was unable to commission artists to create work for her?
Female donator: Was Anita looking out for me when she took my money and did nothing but hoard it for herself, and didn’t deliver on a single one of her promises?
Female Gamer: Was Anita looking out for me when she stole my let’s play footage and presented herself as a living justification for every negative stereotype about female gamers?
Lil Pup mech I designed and modeled…
Exploring some modeling and texturing. I was trying to keep the texture fairly simple, relying on using geometric shaped to build up the wear and tear.
