Yeah must admit it would have come way faster if I drew more pokegirls and overhyped videogame girls, and hadn't kept my account logged off for more than a year in protest of "gag requests"... Or was it "feet requests"? Heck, I can't remember.

People also say I could be less rude. But, my friends, in this boat the cap'n does salute you with a fist bump to your shoulder. If your shoulder comes off with only that, or if your skin is so thin it bleeds with the pressure coming from my ring, you don't stand a chance in this sea. That goes specially to the art-traders I have refused in the past, if I am not interested I am not interested.

Also, I was thinking of a 'murican cartoon theme month or something like that. I don't like using this late western style where everything appears like a movie made in Flash, because there are very few rules, and most times, I would have get the most from the source material and still are very few variations of camera angles to say something. Also, most of them don't use any shading, and it's VERY hard to a person that is not properly educated in art, to visualize a drawing without these. But, all in hope, I always wanted to draw the sexy older sister of a certain phantom/human hybrid, certain receptionist from the big apple, the animated version of certain come-along goth girl from a shitty Tim Burton movie, some good redheaded pseudoscience duo, among others that do not come from Avatar.

Why? Because I respect their creators, for standing still with solid story elements that would be outdated in the nowadays cartoon serialization, and and doing everything in their power to stand up against Nick's dullheads' ways to stop the serialization of both TLAB and Korra.

Which brings me to Korra. I did NOT like that again, it was rushed like hell. In matters of three episodes, we get from happily traveling the world in search of airbenders and solving Lin's old family troubles, to the super exciting final battle with the destiny of the world on the bet. Also Bolin became a lavabending master in half an hour, hahaha. However, I found this new villain really impacting, because he managed to have a peace of mind of such fortitude it allowed him to master what no airbender will in centuries, even with such grievous and mind disturbing motives behind his revolution.

I still don't like that they didn't decide whether it's been 300 years or just 70 years since Last Airbender,'s events. Let's say, I do not find credible that now a whole city is capable of what an only person in the whole world was capable to even think about 70 years ago, with the land so scarcely communicated, and the absence of any historical repository where anyone could learn from.

It's the same with lightning and blood bending, all of them were such mystic and venerable techniques in the TLAB timelapse, it would make sense seeing people providing electric power to machinery, people metalbending a whole city, and telekinetic blood manipulation, if the story was set several generations later, so the techniques would actually have time and brethren to get refined.

Speaking of rushed things, Bleach. For the sake of karma, I will rush this. This asshole now goes and creates 26 original antagonists, so everyone would think that his purpose was to make the characters who we haven't seen much from, to truly demonstrate their skills and close the story for them. But no, he wastes all 26 of them fanservice of the same group of always. And I'm not counting that I almost had to gouge my balls off twice (or trice) in this arc, because I actually thought I could finally draw fanart from this. I've never been so convinced to drop a manga I've read so long. Not even Naruto managed to get this far hahahaha.

Also, I can't wait to Fire Emblem vs. Nintendo, aka Smash Brothers 4. I want to rock the shit out with Mega Man. By the way, I don't like Lucina, because, she is a FUCKING Marth clone. Srsly People? She cosplays dresses and pretends to be the, fucking, Marth. Also ends up as a damsel in distress (Not in this account, ever)

Aren't there any better women in the FE series?

One that C. Falcon can't send back to make sandwiches in the kitchen with a Falcon Punch?

Also, who is this newfag, Shulk?

*researchs*

Xenoblade? Is that even a Nintendo game?

*researches more*

So now Smash will become an ad for the 3DS as well? Holyshit Nintendo.

I also cannot bear Pokemon coming out each year, just like a FIFA or MADDEN game.

I guess now it is appropriate to call them FIFAmon Ruby Cup, and the complement, MADDENmon Sapphire Bowl.

Which reminds me. Why people waste energy to compare football and soccer? Seriously? There is no point of comparison, since one consists on an non-uniform but constant application of body strain, and the other is a series of short high impact outbursts. I once read a journal from a journalist that disliked soccer because a child "cannot feel the fight" that can be felt on the 'murican sports like baseball (The sport where that is most benevolent with unathletic people and is not a contact sport anyway), hockey (where the fist fights over the ice are as harmful as gay body rubbing) and football (where the aim is to convert the play in the most efficient way possible, and where if you let your angry senses overtake you, you will be the first one in the hospital). Oh well, I guess I can't expect sports knowledge from political journalists that seem to have the notion that in some point of the euangelion, Jesus flew over the Roman outpost and bombed the shit out of them, anyways.

Oh wait, I got it. NHLmon, Stanlemerald. So much money grubbing on there furry critters.

Speaking of furries, I expect you to know by now  how much I learned to loathe them. Don't, even, think, of the idea. Why, because the fad has ruined the view I had on the once glorious anthropomorphic animals that once roamed my childhood. Even Sonic. They even mutated the feet fetish which I'm already not in good terms with, into a senseless paw fetish. Of all things, my once living dog had paws as grainy as grind paper, and no he didn't feel anything special when shit rubs on them because he used them to support his weight all of his life. And most likely, any animal would bite the shit out of you if you come that close.

And don't get me started on those assholes making out while wearing a wolf costume, or those who "review" anime while shittingly emulating the calls the human throat is not capable to perform, by a difference of several kilohertz. And there is this guy, requesting the most unlikable furries with their heads shrunk. I swear if he comes near him, I'll gain teleport powers and drop him in the middle of Erta Ale. Oh god it is such a natural wonder, because unlike in Minecraft, there are only 6 of its kind in the world. Anyway, I just cannot think anymore of a DID scenario involving a lava pit since I learned heat transfer.

On other topic, man this new Sailor Moon anime is terrible. It looks like they subcontracted five vietnamese studios to animate randomly chosen storyboards. So then, the characters suddenly change their already questionable body build, their face their already questionable composition, and even the color palettes are swapped all out of nowhere. Geez.

Now I remember. Request Giveaway? Hahahaha it's a bit impossible now with my tight agenda. Suddenly my queue rose up to 90 pics on the list, with 31 in the point of being near completion in the foreseeable future. So no, I'm not doing any giveaway. I'm just checking If you guys actually read this shit all the way down here. You can post your request anyways, or if you didn't actually read lol. But I can't help you out that much.

About the only anime of all that that I experience is Bleach, and that's on TV via Toonami in the US.  And, truth to tell, I watch it out of habit, nowadays (it's on Fullbright arc, I guess, right now).  The first two or three seasons, it really rocked.  But s just kept getting drawn out, and there were too many false endings and sudden power-up reveals that it started to seem like cheating.  Or they were making it up every week.

It scares the shits out of me.

1. They are still dubbing what it's left of the anime, as it is dead and always will be.
2. There are still people watching it, specially the Lost Agent arc is super rushed in the anime version.

You should keep up to late with the manga to be able to see what I'm talking about.

Still, love your art! >u<

To be honest, I stopped watching the anime after Aizen was finally defeated. I mean, the Fullbringer Arc I found interesting and if the series ended it with that I wouldn't have complained. At least it looks like Naruto is coming to its close. Knock on wood.

Korra has pissed me off in several ways, but the biggest thing I can't accept is the bending. It has downgraded. Bending used to be about "controlling the elements". Now, it's just used as extensions for punches and kicks. What happened to the ball of air Aang rode on. What happened to the giant koi fish made of water. Nope. Gone. Just extending range now.

Never been more than a light fan of TLAB or Korra, but I will state that they must've done something right since the Korra was the main character in the second series. Why? Because even today, it seems you can't put a female lead in a cartoon that is aimed for both boys and girls (at least if you ask Marketing). It bewilders me still.

As a European, I've always called it football, because it's a sport where the majority of the game is played by hitting the ball with your foot foot. Apart from that, I've had exactly zero fucks to give about football or tennis or really any kind of sports.

It's funny to look at the SSB-franchise's "evolution". It started as a low budget niche-game that wasn't planned to be released outside japan. We could've had internet gaming-hipsters that talked about "that one game for the N64 where Mario and DK and Link fight each other". Really, this was more of an "in-joke"-thing, all the more evident when you include characters that aren't as well known as Mario, for instance (I mean, Earthbound hasn't legally been released in Europe before the Wii U so most of us was like "Dafuq is this Ness-guy?").
And then, when it was an apparent success, they wasted no time developing a sequel to the Gamecube, which everyone apparently rank as "superior" despite being released some 10+ years ago (I will not discuss Melee or "tourney-fags vs casual-fags" here. I'm 100% done with that shit). Anyway, here they decided to, again, include characters that were obscure outside japan. Maybe as a joke, maybe to see if "there is a market for these games outside Japan". Whatever it was, there's no denying Marth and Roy's popularity contributed at least a little to the fact that we're now seeing Fire Emblem-games everywhere.
Then came Brawl. How do you spell Super Smash Brothers Brawl in english? H-Y-P-E. The amount of hype for this game made me think Jesus was gonna stand in the store and bless every copy of the game sold. And the general oppinion seems to be... divided, between "There's no Smash except Melee" and "This one is better because blahblah". Whatever. But what bewildered me is the unclusion of Lucas. If Ness was obscure to europeans in the first game, Lucas was even more so to most people outside Japan. By now, releasing Brawl outside of Japan wasn't an attempt to see if it would sell, it was PLANNED. Like, right when they first unveiled the Wii EVERYONE was going "Wonder when the next SSB is gonna come out?" So why include Lucas? As an in-joke? To tease us about Mother 2 coming outside the borders? Whatever it was, Lucas made the general audience aware of a product that many perhaps had only heard about.
Which brings me to this, the fourth entry in the series, and my 100% uneducated gut-feeling oppinion on why there are so many goss-darn characters from Fire Emblem:
Reason Nr 1: HYPE!
Japan realized that Fire Emblem games could not only be sold outside Japan, but it sold well. So, what better way to hype a gaming series than SSB?
Reason nr 2: FANSERVICE!
A lot of people love these games, everywhere. A lot of people love Marth, even though they've never played any FE-games and only main him in SSB because he's top tier and Stop it Limp this is not a shitstorm you want to bring up again...
Anyway, that's all I gotta say about that.

I like pokemon, but I'm a pretty lightweight fan here too. It's just a fun game to me, with lots of little monsters and I can choose the ones I think look the coolest and make a little team. I've never had the urge or (for certain individuals I know) the psychological need to be "the very best like no one ever was", hence why I've never delved deep into the IV/EV-training. I've had a person look me in the eye and say "Your party doesn't have perfect EV's and IV's?!" like I've just told them I like to eat fresh garbage (said individual has also given me a similar response when I told him I actually liked to give nicknames to my favourite monsters). So yeah, maybe that's I'm not a hardcore poke-fan and tend not to buy every generation of games...

New Sailor Moon anime... well... I'm not saying you shouldn't be able to adapt pre-existing work, because everyone has their vision of how something should be presented, and we can't just focus on ONLY new things and never ever touch anything that's already been done before, wether it was done good or bad and whatever and yaddayadda...
The question is: Do we HAVE to?
Did we REALLY need a new adaption of Sailor Moon?
This is only oppinion based, but: No, no we didn't. The old one, while about 20 or so years old, was fine enough. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, as the old cliché goes. The character designs look like actuall little girls, not genetically engineered females that has spent 6 hours in the make-up chair, making sure the lip gloss and eye-lines and blush and whatever looks just perfect. I liked the characterizations better. I like the pacing better. Who cares that the original had like, tons of fillers and that the new one follows the manga much closer?
(FMA did something recently, although the difference here is that, as I've understood it, the 2003 anime didn't so much alter the story as it turned it completely on it's head and wandered of in it's own direction, like it forgot to take a left turn at Albuquerque)
But of course, a remake was bound to happen, since Sailor Moon still apparently makes a shit-ton of money years after it ended, much like Dragon Ball. (Seriously, I love Dragon Ball for all it's goofiness and over-the-top shouting and stuff, but the series officially ended over 20 years ago, and we're still seeing new fighting games and a movie coming out?)

Also, yes, you probably know my know my stance on furries (who doesn't by now? :/ ), but my advice is to continue to keep away from furry fandoms in general. We fuckers can be really wierd sometimes...

And yeah, the only reason why I even checked this out was to see what you had written instead of the "Request Giveaway". I was not dissapointed.
Sorry for the long comment, just had some oppinions myself. I'll be going now.
Peace.

Pretty right on the spot. All of the sudden, Smash Bros wants to be what it was never intended to be, a flagship game for Nintendo, because Nintendo hasn't had truly a flagship game since... what? Mario Galaxy?

Also, to note. FMA: Brotherhood is actually much better than the predecessor, at least the protagonist gets developed both in body and mind, instead of being always a sissy like in the original.

As with most fandoms, bronies are okay if you hang out with the right ones. There are "I like the show"-bronies, who simply likes a cartoon about colorful horses, and "I have an unhealthy obsession"-bronies. Really, the same could be said about any fandom. Furry, Pokemon, Mario, Big Bang Theory, Power Rangers, Playstation, Sonic, anything (yes, there are sane "normal" Sonic-fans out there. Unfortunately, they seems to be a bit outnumbered by wierd ones).

I think the problem comes from taking something too seriously. Like, you get so enamoured by something (a fandom, for example) that you almost consider it a part of you, a part of your personality. Therefore, when even the slightest sign of negativity is brought up, you take it as a personal insult and react accordingly There are simply people who seems to be unable to tell themselves "Chill, man, it's just a game/cartoon/etc".

But that's just me whatever I dunno I ain't no psychotherapist I may just be talkin shit :/

The sad this is, it IS possible to do some absolutely stunning animation with Flash.  The French have that nailed, if you've ever seen Wakfu. But the American studios doing it have all this flatly designed, barely animated crud that doesn't even scratch the surface of what's possible. Because they're lazy, or unimaginitive, or because the network suits have them so stomped down they don't even try any more to be inventive.

Nor do they have the writing chops to save the story from the poor animation.

Wow that's quite the rant!

Kinda mean to get our hopes up, and then tie and gag them and leave them attached to a pipe, though. But I guess the key is probably somewhere around here... so maybe it's not so bad?

Given it was you, I knew that your journal title would be a bait and switch. But it was amusing to watch you babble incoherently for however many words that was.

And what is with calling American fooball "football" anyway? There's bugger all kicking.

A regulation football is a foot long. I'm not sure if you were serious or not, but there's a little bit of info for you

Semi serious.

You see, in the rest of the world, football refers to a game where you have a spherical ball you use your feet to interact with.

This here is a 'Murrican - and I understand your confusion. In occasional bouts of sanity, *I* wonder that myself.  And - get this - they were talking about a rule change where they don't kick off to start the game or after scores.  So, that's fewer instances where the body part in the sport's name no longer interacts with the ball!
