"Annabeth is tan, but not THAT tan."
"wow, that’s going overboard with the skintone for Annabeth"
I saw a variety of these tags and reblogs and asks that are along these lines that comment on the way I shade Annabeth in my Feels Like Home comic.
Apparently it is easier to believe in shadow travel, monsters, Gods walking among people on the streets, magical artefacts, flying dragons and TARTARUS than in a character having darker skin than you expected.
The many different shades of “I am so done with this shit” by Nico di Angelo.
A style experiment because I still don’t know how I want to draw Nico.
How is Ginny’s quidditch ability more Mary-Sue than Harry’s, when she has been secretly practising since she was 6, and Harry magically caught the remembrall in an amazing, unprecedented performance the first time he got on a broom (discounting his brief use of a toy broom at like 1)? Oh, wait.
How is Ginny’s attractiveness more Mary-Sue than Harry’s, when she dated like 2 or 3 people, and Harry was asked to the Yule Ball by a second/third year, dated popular Cho Chang, and was pursued by Romilda Vane? Hang on, looks like they’re both considered attractive.
How is Ginny’s skill at performing hexes more Mary-Sue worthy than Harry’s magical ability, when he could produce a corporeal patronus in third year? Oops.
How about Ginny’s social skills? Yeah, Harry is angsty for the 5th book especially so he isn’t ‘perfect’, but Ginny was unable to speak to Harry for the first few books. Looks like there’s relative equity again.
Humour? They both display wit.
Ability to deal with trauma? He suffers far more, but she forges ahead and deals with the aftermath of possession by Voldemort effectively alone. She deals too, and isn’t completely unscathed, demonstrated in the 5th book when she talks to Harry about it.
Looks like if Ginny’s a ‘Mary-Sue’, so is Harry. So maybe we should consider that before dismissing her. ‘Mary-Sue’ is a bullshit, sexist term anyway, no time for that.
You are my new favorite person.
Feels Like Home updated!
Will the comic blog ever get an icon? We might never know.
But what we do get is a new page! Check it out on the blog!
One Piece spoilers
So I caught up with the newest One Piece chapters.
I joined Andy's livestream today and we talked about how much we love HTTYD and I always wanted there to be more fanwork in general, but especially of Ruffnut and Astrid and since radycat is an enabler and I can’t resist badass ladies, I ended up drawing it.
Finally updated my Influence map, the first one is two years old, and while I still adore the artists, I found some more I wanted to add or had forgotten the first time round.
