GG is TIRED of Samus Complaints: A ResponseGaijin Goombah is TIRED of Samus Complaints: A ResponseGG is TIRED of Samus Complaints: A Response1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Someone linked me this video after seeing my Fashion Savvy Samus comic, and it quickly became apparent that a LOT of people defending Samus’s god-awful rocket boots were using THIS as their basis for argument. So, since this is the internet, I’m gonna respond to this video interjecting whenever I hear something I agree or disagree with.
1. I agree that we should separate Other M Samus from the rest of cannon based on the fact that it was conceived over a retcon of the character.
2. I agree that a lot of the hatred for Other M Samus came from her BADLY localized English translation and voice acting. I’ve stated many times that if the game had been left in Japanese with English subtitles, I sincerely doubt as many people would’ve had a problem with her “monologuing” than they do with the English version.
3. I do not agree that you should be “offended” that mal

Anthro vs Furry: A Semantics ProblemI have a dream. A dream that certain artists in the anthro community here will one day, stop being ignorant about what "furry" is...and they will stop using the term incorrectly and discriminating art because of it. Any art community has a right to set limitations on what they accept in specific collections. But being so vague in saying "we only accept anthro, we don't accept furry" brings up a deep rooted semantics issue with the terminology being used. Being an Art Educator and a former community volunteer for this gallery, I cannot sit here and watch the ignorance and not say a word. I see people promoting stamps, design charts and even groups with false information and it sickens me.Anthro vs Furry: A Semantics Problem3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Most commonly, I see people using "furry" as a term to describe an art style.
FURRY IS NOT NOT A STYLE. IT IS A SUBJECT MATTER.
ANTHRO is NOT a style either. It is ALSO a SUBJECT MATTER.
Style refers to the unique use of the Elements and Principles of Art and Design within the content of the artwork. S

Notes on Character Design
I received the question pictured below at my tumblr blog. In case it's useful to anyone here, I decided to go ahead and use this otherwise dormant journal to share the article I put together in response.
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don't - I have a lot to learn), I'm not sure I could communicate them effectively. Here are some thoughts an ideas that might help, though.
First, some general things...
Let some of that anxiety go. This isn't a hard science. There's no wrong way,
Stamps I hate stamps. I hate them so fucking much. My main problem with them is that a lot of people use them to write negative shit. And, yeah, I can be an asshole sometimes... I'm working on that... but I just completely fucking loathe people who put up shitty stamps that only exist to piss people off with negative statements. Like, here's an example. Let's say I'm looking for pictures relating to a popular fandom. Homestuck, MLP, OFF, Adventure Time, whatever it is. I'm looking these things up because I enjoy them, and that's usually a safe thing to assume. But it appears that some people are too fucking thick-skulled to understand that. I'll often come upon some dumbshit stamp about how horrible whatever the fuck I'm looking up is, and for some reason, they're fairly popular. And here's the thing that makes these digital shit stains even more repugnant. I'll find that a lot of times thStamps2 years ago in Personal More Like This

BullyingFrom lucylollipop89Bullying3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take out a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stomp on it and really mess it up, not to rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty it was. She then told them to tell it they're sorry. Now, even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bullies another child, they may say they're sorry, but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. Copy and paste this if you are against bullying.
I've got a theory...I keep getting asked why I keep focusing so much on women's rights in comics and what-not. http://syacartoonist.com/seriously-stop-it I'm honestly not sure why it's suddenly struck me to start talking about this stuff so much, but I have a theory...I've got a theory...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The reason these issues with women in comics and gaming and nerd culture in general is because of inclusivity and broadening demographics. Over a decade ago, nerd culture was still very much male dominated and exclusive. But over the years women have been getting into comics and gaming and everything else geek related much more so. I mean... don't get me wrong, they were ALWAYS there to being with... but for whatever reason it just started to become more socially acceptable to admit that you were a woman and a geek/gamer.
But the problem is that most of nerd culture and gaming are doing things same-old-same-old like they've always been doing things. They produce content exclusively for male audiences and don't understand why women are takin

I see I've gained a number of watchers during the time I was gone, what a surprise! Thank you all so much~!
Anyways, for those of you who didn't get the memo, I've been absent here the past couple weeks as I was accepted into the two-week summer arts program Nickelodeon: An Overview from Development to Pitch held at Cal State Monterey bay.
The experience was... life changing. Really. I had so much fun. The people were amazing, and I learned so much... I wish it didn't have to end so soon.
So here's how it went:
I stayed in a dorm room surrounded by a school full of socially inept nerds-- just like me!-- for two weeks, creating a cartoon to pitch to Audrey, the VP, the REAL VP, of Nickelodeon. The difference between me and these guys? I'm an incoming senior in high school. Everyone else except my friend was either in their third or fourth year of college or a college graduate.
The weather was nice and cool, and the campus was BEAUTIFUL let me tell ya. I
