Another 15th of November, the debut anniversary of Space Jam and the first appearance of Lola Bunny. Am I fixated on this character? Perhaps. Is that wrong? Well, Warner Brothers Media hasn't issued a Cease And Desist Order, so it can't be all that wrong. Many decry Lola Bunny as a cypher and a Mary Sue, that has no place among the Looney Tunes. The revised version seen in The Looney Tunes Show is definitely much loonier, more in keeping with the origins of the franchise's stalwarts. Nonetheless, I'm mindful that the debut of Lola in Space Jam had to be tempered, because the whole reason for this film in the first place was to wave the mighty Michael Jordan in Disney's face. It would be counterproductive to debut a new character that outshines their expensive star.
Of course, some would say that I shouldn't be doing these homages, that I ought to concentrate on my own creations. Well, I do both. And if I feel like sketching a Lola Bunny piece, then that's my happy thing, and I'm good with it. I certainly won't begrudge anyone from drawing whatever makes them happy. So, if drawing wide-eyed waifus being eviscerated makes you happy, that's fine. If depicting bishonen as morbidly obese quasi-Hutts is your thing, go ahead; I have no say in what your create. And if it's androgynous werewolves with humongous mammaries and shrunken heads that tickles your fancy, then don't let me or anyone stop you. I'm not a neo-Communist Peggy Charren wannabe. Just as I'm sure some critics would object to being told what they can / can't draw.
Freedom of expression, first and foremost. Maybe you won't like it, but in the interest of truth and fair warning, you'll get clear proof of who you're dealing with.
