Stuff and junk.
Gamer gate has been trying to use Bayonetta as a rallying point, and criticism of it as proof of a “feminist agenda” in reviews
They’ve been trying to get Hideki Kamiya, creator of Bayonetta, to support them
the salt is so fucking real
Haha, this is amazing. The fact that these jerks assumed Hideki Kamiya would speak up in their defense, sought out his opinion, and went “wha-wha-whaaaaa?” when his response wasn’t what they expected just proves that the “movement” is made up of three year olds. Like a professional in the industry is absolutely going to be slighted enough by an unfavorable review to jump on this bandwagon.
Set aside the misogynistic side of this whole thing, and the journalistic integrity side is still utterly ridiculous.
Hey guys, I figure I owe you an update on September’s challenge. Don’t Feed The Plants came in at 215 votes (!!!) and a 2.89 average score (…) over on Threadless. All in all, I’d say not bad for my second Threadless submission ever. I have been super excited with all the notes and reblogs the series has gotten over on my art tumblr.
I have to get my head back in the game this month, though, if I don’t want to spend next month scrubbing floors. Crap, I’ve got a lot to do. =_=
Updating Y’all on the Threadless entry. Some day I will be internet famous. Some day.
i like necks a lot yeh lets talk about necks!!! u gotta know what’s going on in there to draw necks, here’s a fairly simple run down.
Also a lot (most all) of my anatomy knowledge comes from taking Scott Eaton’s anatomy for artists course. If you have a chance/money to take it, it’s really great.
Really helpful notes from Makani, who is the best.
Workin’ on winning a challenge this month ‘cause this girl can’t afford the $$$ for all the studio beer we’d drink in November.
I’m doing really badly at this month’s Sibling Rivalry. It’s supposed to be sister pitted against sister but I’m over here all “wow that’s coming along great” and “I’m too tired to do things.”
As far as I knew, no one knew about Return to Oz . I can’t even recall an origin story, how the movie actually showed up in my hands. My sister claims we just found the VHS somewhere, maybe in an overlooked bin, at some video store that may have been Blockbuster. I do remember looking at the cover and knowing immediately that I wanted it. We went home and watched it. And watched it again. And watched it again. And watched it. Again.
This is an Oz you might unfamiliar with. The film begins with Dorothy Gale—the same Dorothy character previously played by Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz, but now played by a younger Fairuza Balk—shortly after her return to Kansas. Aunt Em and Uncle Henry are growing concerned with Dorothy’s inability to sleep, and what they see as her obsessive delusions, this odd fixation on a place she’s created in her head. In order to help cure her, they bring her to a mental institution to be treated overnight via electroshock therapy. It’s nighttime, it’s raining, and Dorothy can hear the howls of other patients in pain.
This unexpected premise resonated with me as a child. At that age, I felt just as Dorothy did—misunderstood to the point of feeling like an alien, finding home only in imagined worlds. I was brought to see a psychiatrist for similar reasons. Why this obsession with the imagined? Where was reality? I was always more concerned with my inner world than socializing with the other kids around me. So prone to fantasy, I hardly even noticed my peers. In pictures, always looked both meek and haunted. My eyes darted elsewhere."
