LATE NIGHT SKETCHING (2 AM)

I wanted to try and work on facial diversity and making sure I don’t fall into sameface syndrome so I switched Lane and Caroline’s hairstyles and now I’m having a crisis because they both look great with each other’s hair.

#btw lane is trans  #idk if I ever mentioned that  #i'm debating if/how to bring it up in the story  #luckysevens  #my art 

grimdarkthroes:

you know whatd be a fun exercise

get a writer and an artist together. artist does a sketch, writer writes a handful of paragraphs. they give them to each other.

writer has to write a handful of paragraphs on the scene depicted in the sketch, and it cant be just like, describing it. artist has to draw a new sketch from the writing.

it’d be a neat lil’ flex-the-muscles sort of thing.

#thank god 
I was looking through my old posts and saw all of the LuckySevens fan art I used to draw, sooooo I kind of got inspired and doodled this… ^^;;;;; Also, I was wondering if you plan on continuing this?
—————
Oh my gosh, thanks so much! (I’m just going through my messages now). This is great, thanks a ton!
As for LuckySevens, I’m currently attempting to script it. The plot is incredibly different from it was when I initially planned it, and most of the focus is on Caroline and Lane (at this point, I don’t think Mercy and Rabbit are even showing up, and Mittamur and Nemo are appearing briefly), but hopefully people are still interested in it!

Hi guys. we need to have a serious chat right now.

the-fury-of-a-time-lord:

Two years ago, there was a movie called Paranorman.

image

It didn’t do so good at the box office, despite it being one of the most important, game changing animated movies since the Disney renaissance. It made its money back, but it wasn’t the smash hit Frozen was.

And this is a fucking tragedy. 

Why?

image

image

People read into Frozen that Elsa was an allegory for many things, one of them being LGBT. That’s cute. Meanwhile, Paranorman had the first ever openly, proudly gay character in an animated movie. ever. There was no allegory, there was no “well if you squint”. HE WAS GAY. HE HAD A BOYFRIEND. And Tumblr didn’t make this movie a smash success. There wasn’t a million mash ups with this and Return of the Guardians and HTTYD and Brave or whatever. There wasn’t long posts reading into Agatha Penderghast and how they handled bullying. This movie had a smallish following and fell off the map.

Now, Laika has a new movie coming out.

People are scared for Dreamworks right now. The news that if HTTYD 2 doesn’t do well, they’re going to lay off a bunch of animators is terrible. Don’t get me wrong. But Laika is a small company doing fantastic things. Everyone loved Coraline. Great, where was your money when it counted? Coraline didn’t do fantastic either. This is a SMALL STUDIO. THEY NEED ALL THE HELP YOU CAN GIVE THEM. All the money you threw at Frozen, a far inferior film, could’ve gone to a movie that mattered. 

(just putting it out there, I liked Frozen. But Paranorman was not even in the same ballpark of quality).

image

what i’m trying to say is, Laika needs to be protected at all costs. It isn’t wrong to love the big three of Disney/Dreamworks/Pixar, but small companies deserve a chance to grow just as big. there is room in the industry for new and beautiful things, and Laika is SO going to be the frontrunner for this. Their movies are, so far, dark and challenging, beautiful and haunting, and innovative. Give them a reason and a means to make more movies. 

Go see the Boxtrolls. Good, bad, mediocre, Laika deserves it.

#i reblogged the video earlier so i feel like i need to make this addition  #yeah it's great and catchy and cute and also pretty problematic  #all about that bass 
nonbinaryeldritchhorror asked: i would like to hear the story when u tell it! also goodnight :)


Answer:

Thanks! I might as well just tell it now. I’ve told this story a few times in person, but here it is, immortalized forever on the interwebs.

Okay so last year I had to attend these summer meetings for a class I was taking during the year. It’s a small class already and not everyone in the class attended the meetings, since they were extra credit, so there were usually 4-5 people there. So at the end of one of these meetings, one of the guys (we’ll call him R) suggests that we all go out to eat. The one person in the class I already knew had to go to work, but the only other guy there seems down for it and I figure I might as well meet the people I’m going to be spending all year with, so I say sure.

So we all get into this guy’s car, and he wants to go to Qboda. Well, the only Qdoba near us is closed, and he is Bound and Determined to go (I’d never been there before so I couldn’t really object), so we have a long car ride ahead of us.

Now, I generally try to stay away from politics, and the class we’d been meeting for was Government, so I’m not too keen on getting into everyone’s beliefs, but R wastes no time. “So,” he asks me, “where are you on the political spectrum?”

"Well, I consider myself pretty liberal, I guess." I reply. He asks me to elaborate. "I mean, I suppose I’m more liberal socially," I say, "rather than economically, because I don’t actually know a ton about economics so I’d like to be more educated before I take a position on that. But I consider myself pretty liberal socially."

"Can you give an example?" he replies, evidently trying to get a good grasp on where I was politically.

"Well…" Now, at this point I wasn’t sure just how out I was willing to be. I’d already told my close friends, family members, and basically anyone whose opinion on my orientation mattered to me, but I wasn’t in the habit of outing myself to complete strangers yet (that came later). But I figured I was confident enough in my ability to debate sexuality issues, and it was a common enough issue that I felt I wouldn’t have to explain it to him, and I didn’t actually have to out myself. "For example, I think same-sex marriage should be legal."

"Oh." And his opinion very obviously differs. "Well, I think that gay people should be able to have civil unions, but they don’t need to call it marriage. Civil unions have basically the same rights as a marriage anyways."

At this point I considered outing myself, but I’ve noticed that letting someone know that you’re gay tends to completely shut down debate on gay rights, and, as I mentioned earlier, I was confident enough in my ability to debate sexuality issues, so I figured this would be a nice debate to have and I didn’t want to end it just yet. I started to say something, but he said that he didn’t like debating on an empty stomach, so he wanted to wait until we got to the restaurant, and I said that was fine.

On the car ride, we discussed many other topics, such as feminism (he wasn’t a fan) and whether his friend (who we picked up along the way) wearing a “cool story babe, now make me a sandwich” shirt was horribly offensive or not.

We were nearing the restaurant. “So, what’s your opinion on abortion?” he asks. Evidently R is leaving nothing unmentioned.

"Well, I’m pro-choice," I replied. He was not.

"I mean, I would never get an abortion," he said.

"Of course you wouldn’t, you don’t have a uterus."

The guy driving laughed. R was defensive. “Well, would YOU ever get an abortion?”

I thought about it for a bit, and then said, “Well, I haven’t really thought about it, because I don’t really plan on getting pregnant.”

This was a shock for all three boys in the car. “Wait, like, EVER?” the guy driving asked.

"Is this one of your feminist things?” R asked.

At this point, I’d concluded this guy was a grade A asshole and that I was kind of over this whole conversation, so I didn’t really care about preserving my ability to debate same-sex marriage. “No, it’s one of my LESBIAN things!”

The entire car flipped out. Thankfully we parked right at that moment as everyone in the car shouted and realized they’d tried to debate same-sex marriage with an ACTUAL GAY PERSON. I was laughing.

On the way into the restaurant, R made sure to apologize profusely to me and assure me that he would be COMPLETELY OKAY with it if gay people could get married, essentially 180-ing on his entire earlier argument.

So that’s the story. I’m sure it’s a lot funnier when I actually tell it as opposed to spending an hour typing it, but here it is. I would like to make a note that throughout the year, R did manage to grow and expand his worldview, and at the end of the year he managed to do a presentation on the LGBT community that, while not exactly enthusiastic, was nonoffensive and showed that he’d learned quite a bit, and if that’s not some Lifetime movie shit right there then I don’t know what is.

(I would also like to note that it is entirely possible for me to be a girl who dates girls and still get pregnant, since not all the girls I date are guaranteed to be cis, but “i’m a lesbian” was the most clever rebuttal I could come up with in the heat of the moment and I didn’t consider that it might’ve been exclusionary towards trans people until later. Sorry.)

I never tell people off the bat that I’m gay. I wait. I wait until they say some homophobic shit and then I laugh and am like “you know I’m gay right?” And watch the look of terror on their face.
