I didn't draw this.

I don't know who did.

But it is one of the most amazing things I have seen in a long, long time, and I really really wish that either of the above two statements were a lie. They're not, but I wish they were, cause I'd like to at least know who made this awesome thing.

Having officially Given Up on quite a few things this week, I decided to draw stupid random 2 minute doodles of really terrible puns to take my mind off of it.

Here we have... the moe hawk.

I should probably break down and get a tumblr or something to spam with stuff like this huh.

You know, overall I'm pleased with the direction my style is going in. I've been working hard to get a less obviously anime informed style, certainly not straight anime, because while there is certainly nothing wrong with japanese cartoons, EVERYONE is drawing that way these days and if you aren't original then you aren't really marketable, which means you don't sell anything which means you don't eat.

Besides which, so many 14 year old fangirls are pumping out such a quantity of manga (and I should know, I was one of them) that most people probably outside Japan probably don't consider it a really 'serious' style, which blah blah work blah difficult etc.


The point here is that I've really been working hard for years now to start modifying my style, to bring it away from obviously Japanese more and into something more me, no matter what I'm doing, and overall I'm satisfied with how it's turning out, even if I still have a lifetime of work of learning and refining left to go. But then, when I'm sitting there fairly content with how my style is looking, considering I need to learn more shading and anatomy and environments and practice practice everything and learn watercolors and all the other 80000 things I really should be doing, sometimes I'll find a picture, and it will be anime, and it will be simple, but it will be well drawn and and it will have the most gorgeous pair of eyes.

And I miss it.

I see those pictures and I always just want to take up my pencil and draw and draw and draw and try to learn how to do that perfect pair of eyes, but they're always so very anime and the more you practice something, the more you swing in that direction, so I really shouldn't - I'd be sacrificing so much work put into trying to do something DIFFERENT if I did it now.

But oh those eyes.

Man I kinda hate all those jerks who can do anatomy *laughs*

I need to draw more people and muscles hhhh

Also preferably people from life, not humanoid my little ponies. What about these ponies is so addictive anyway? I keep on drawing fluttershy man.

Right, DC, i appreciate that you're actually using Terry's villains here instead of merely recycling Bruce's, and heavens knows that this is better than clonedickhush.

But I

That's j

I don't

So Terry is kind of turning into more of a jerk as the new beyond ongoing series marches on, at least inasmuch as Dana came to break up with him for the 800000th time and he didn't take her seriously at all. Now in part this is her own darn fault, due to how for the past 3 years she's been breaking up with him every other week and they're still dating, BUUUUT in the cartoon at least he takes her seriously and recognizes that he's a jerk. This, I feel, is rather significant.

Also in the same issue Terry appears to be drunk. Or I guess Bruce might just have been drugging him again.

Why do you do this to me, DC?

woohoo new layout

I'm not sure if I'm keeping it

I wish that life would just pause for about a month and let me do nothing until i wanted to do something again

also i just finished watching all of my little pony friendship is magic, or all that's out thus far. I have no idea why this show is so enjoyable, but enjoyable it is

I am also watching zeta project. Five episodes in and I don't want to watch any more. But it's the last show in dcau that I haven't watched and the completionist in me wants to watch it. also moooore canoooooon materiaaaaaaaaaaaal except for that thing where zeta doesn't seem half as consistent or to make sense nearly as often as batman beyond

the original comics for beyond, from 99, are mostly fantastic, btw. A few bad issues thus far, but that's comics for you

and you all should be grateful that I went and took the time to dig some normal books out, because every book in my room is currently packed away except two math textbooks and three books that my aunt gave me for christmas which are pretty terrible, yet still notable for having the single most stuified stu I have ever found in a published work.


☇ Take four books off your bookshelf.
☇ Write the first sentence
☇ Write the last sentence on page fifty
☇ Write the second sentence on page one hundred
☇ Write the next to the last sentence on page one hundred fifty
☇ Write the final sentence of the book
☇ Let your friends guess what book it is.

For purposes of 'first sentence' I am pretending that anything not originally included in the publication doesn't exist, so no forwards that were written later and all that. Also if people don't get most of these I will be SO DISAPPOINTED IN ALL OF YOU.

I own so many books why are they all packed away?Collapse )

DCAU is supposedly made up of Batman the Animated Series, Superman the Animated Series, and Justice League - and a few other cartoons and some scattered comics and stuff (including my beloved batman beyond), but. The STAS and JL is the important thing right now.

So in JL, Aquaman has long blonde hippiehair and a beard and one hand and overall is a big grouch, who appears to have a strong dislike of wearing shirts. In the one STAS episode he shows up in he's... all right, so he's still a grouch, but he has no hippiehair and no beard, and he totally wears a shirt. Also he's got two hands but given that he loses his hand in his first episode in JL it's not like that's a sticking point or anything.

It's just. It's just the hair. I mean guys what's up with that I'm pretty sure that there wasn't that wide a gap between STAS and JL. I guess going by airdates between the two of them there's like 3 years in between, but if we assume that atlantean hair grows at the same rate as the hair of us surface dwellers, it's... unlikely (though I guess not impossible) that his hair would be that long, and in order to get close he'd never have been able to cut it between points A and B. I dunno. I am confuse.

And entirely apart from the hair issue, the underlying bone structure of his face seems to have changed a little.

Also I'm still not quite sure where John Stewart came from for GL but i guess i can accept that too, I just.

Aquaman. What.

Hell is not the same as he'll, shed is not the same as she'd, no more is shell the same word as she'll. I'll does not mean you are ill, my id is connected only psychologically with anything I'd do. You're and your are not the same, and if you say that you go two the movies than I'll wonder what, exactly, numbers have to do with it. They're going over there, for their stuff.

Is this really so complicated?! /STARES AT INTERNET

Sorry, this is no one on my flist specifically, I just needed to rage against the internet after one too many times of going to look something up and finding a total lack of apostrophes. It's a friendly little punctuation mark and just wants to be loved ;-;
