This is my gripe (Shadane Edition)



This is obviously based on that post on Twitter about how western cartoonists draw

This is half joking, half serious. Joking, because I thought it was funny, and I wanted to make my own variation of the image, and serious because I've seen this my entire childhood, so much so that when I was a small child, I legitimately thought wolves looked like they did in western cartoons because I was very young and I wasn't yet familiar with the outside world, so of course when I saw wolves at the zoo for the first time, all I could think was, "but... these are just dogs; there's no way an animal that looks like that could be a wolf!" and then I thought the zoo was cruel for keeping huskies confined in cages, because dogs are domesticated? Then again, I don't think wild animals belong in cages either, and I think rehabilitating the rescued young and releasing them later down the line would be better than putting them on display in an enclosed space that's only 5% the size of their natural habitat. In the end, I found out that they were, in fact, wolves, and the animals I saw in these cartoons were heavily exaggerated.
