Hagrid was waiting exactly at the food tray spot when I put it back, so he got the new buffet served right to him! He didn't even budge while I set it down, then immediately dug in with a mealworm. I love him!
(hello! it's me, pear! i'm just passing through with this :) if you'd like to do it!) If you get this, answer with 3 random facts about yourself (or your book/oc) and send it to the last 7 blogs in your notifications, anonymously or not 😊💖
ooo Thanks for sending this to me!
1. I desperately want, so badly, for a new Pokemon Rangers game. It's SUCH a good series and I miss it so bad :')
2. I absolutely adore fantasy. Dragons and magic? Sign me up. Escapism is real bois. But I haven't been reading books much for years, I just don't have the attention span for it anymore,,,,,,, I'm trying to get back into it though!
3. I love space and planets and all that, but I can't look at pictures of it for too long. It depends on the picture, but generally yeah. There's something about it that shakes me up inside. It's a very deep-seated fear, one I can't really explain? But I find it frustrating because I really really love space :') (I literally couldn't even play Super Mario Galaxy for too long because seeing Mario fall into space made my hands shake so bad)
Hey @gougeandkill! I was wondering if you're going to do designs for the rest of the Legion of Stationary? It's fine if you weren't planning to, I just love your designs for Colored Pencils and Scissors and I wanted to see more (please feel free to say no if desired, I don't want to pressure you or anything).
hi!! haha you’re not pressuring me at all, dw! but yesss i am planning to design everyone <3 im slowly working on them but designing gijinkas is hard ><
but ill definitely post them here when i can ! im happy you like my designs 💖
ok but i think the thing that bugs me most about disney’s same-face syndrome is that it’s NOT because the artists are lazy. like
the sheer amount of face and body design in this screenshot from Tangled? INCREDIBLE. i am in AWE. it’s so fun to look at, i want to know the stories of each of these people because i believe! they are actual! people!! the amount of creativity in this one screenshot is downright contagious!
and it’s the same with Frozen, like
the design style of these people is a bit different from Tangled, and I’m not sure if that’s meant to denote a different geographical area or if it’s just a matter of different artists being involved, but still: you can clearly see the variety of faces in these shots. i’d even say there’s MORE variation in background female characters than male ones.
which means that THIS
is NOT a symptom of incompetence. and it’s not a sign of lazy design work. it’s a CHOICE.
and that shouldn’t be a surprise! that’s what disney DOES, these days; it finds a niche that makes some cash and pumps it until it runs dry. it owns the entertainment industry. it can afford to be tasteless and formulaic. it doesn’t HAVE any competitors to keep it honest.
but it drives me absolutely MAD to realize that the thing disney sees as a primary moneymaking asset, enough to impose THIS level of sameness for as long as they can get away with it, is the appearance of its female leads. It’s the face of their main character.
Because it works. This design is nonthreatening, attractive, and perfectly appealing to all audiences, children and adults alike. It’s white, and pretty, and thin, and young. it’s what we’re used to looking at, even as it catches the eye.
It’s a perfect face.
It’s a face that sells tickets, and a figure that sells toys.
They could create new characters with their own faces, but why would they? This face, this character, this body makes them money. They find actresses for live-action remakes that match the mold of thin-sweet-pretty as closely as they can, and filter out the rest.
They’ve bought out their competitors, and it’s not like they’re accountable to their audiences. There’s nowhere to go but Disney, these days.
They’ve found something low-effort and high-profit, and there’s nothing anyone can do that will make them let it go.
I’m gonna release a blog at some point with two “thicc” hourglass/pear muses and another muse who is overweight and an apple shape. And if my apple shaped gal gets significantly less ships than those other two you BET I am telling the dash about it because FUCK THAT SEXIST SHIT!!!
When I was a kid some asshole said something really gross about gummy bears so ever since then I’ve gotten gummy worms instead of gummy bears... But the other day at Costco I found this big bag of organic juice gummy bears in a bunch of fruit flavors, so... I’m doing it.
Zakuro (he/him) is?? Maybe my most expensive dragon? I’ve shelled out for gem terts for a couple of dragons and one time a gem primary, but never more than one gem gene for one dragon and I think wildclaw scroll beats them out lmao
Other that his wildclaw scroll though Zakuro was honestly pretty cheap. I found his fire egg while in the coli, hatched him, and brewed his trail gene myself to save on some money!! I already had most of his apparel and the accent he’s wearing is a fest skin I think I just had lying around
He’s a chimerical jackdaw from the effluvial crow subspecies! I just got into the subspecies and was training my first crow to 25 when his egg popped up and the discord chat encouraged me to hatch and I did have two wildclaw scrolls I was hanging onto already and... anyway yeah he ended up being an impulse keep, he’s Anahira’s adopted son and she loves him SO MUCH
and I love him too which brings me to part 2 of why he’s my most expensive: I got him some really lovely art by Hnai (#62021) !!!
