This is part of why I love you, Pink. Because you get it. 8| Every time I see Ranma pop up on wtffanfiction, I have to resist the urge to reblog them because most of them would be entirely normal in the canon they belong to. Insane shit just happens in Nerima, Japan.
ALSO THIS IS WHY PEOPLE SHOULD READ/WATCH RANMA, BECAUSE IT IS THE BEST.
Yesssss~! *fist bump*
EVERYTHING THIS WOMAN SAYS IS THE GOSPEL TRUTH.
Fandom: Ranma 1/2
“She persisted with her insidious and maddening glare, like an animated jack-hammer with tunnel vision. And boobs.”
Wait, I found that scene!
Okay, if this were ANY other fandom that writing would be totally bizarre, but it’s Ranma. Besides, “hammer with boobs” to describe its female characters, that’s actually not too far off:
Idk if this counts as a peeve more of an art-astronomy pet peeve
but when people draw the cresent moon and where the dark, shaddowed part of the moon is they put in stars
like studdenly that part of the moon is invisible instead of just being in the shadow
wait no peOPLE ACTUALLY DO THIS???
really stupid question though but like, aren’t there stars in front of the moon??? like??? space isn’t two dimensional so someone putting a couple stars in front of the shadow wouldn’t necessarily be wrong?? because aren’t there stars all around in space and?????? im just going to be confused forever frick uvu;
hun if there was a star infront of the moon we’d be fucking dead
I’ve overheard a couple before where one of them had never heard of the phrase ‘a full moon’ and the other scoffed at the idea that moonlight was reflected sunlight. It pained me greatly.
ALL OF YOU. REMEDIAL ASTRONOMY CLASS. NOW.
*$9 because the texture abuse raises the price by two dollars.
Wouldn’t you rather spend your money on art that you’d like to look at?

if this picture took less than an hour to draw, $7 is about the bare minimum level of reasonable compensation. if it took the artist any longer than that, they are being underpaid for the amount of time they spent.
why are people constantly fucking bitching and crying about artists getting paid “too much” for their skilled labor, while nobody ever pitches a fit about the fact you can make $8.81 an hour standing in front of a door and saying hello to people
do people even have any concept of how little minimum wage actually is? even a full time minimum wage job is going to get you 1200-1500 dollars a month tops, and most positions that hire at minimum wage are going to be part time to avoid having to actually give you any benefits like health insurance (and freelance artists still have to pay for their own health insurance even when they’re working well over 40 hours a week, which is exorbitantly fucking expensive to buy individually). go look at craigslist for the prices of renting apartments in your area and see how comfortable a life you’ll have working 8 dollars an hour when you factor in the prices of food, transportation, taxes, the out-of-pocket medical bills you’ll have to pay, clothes, etc.. even if you cram yourself into apartment with a billion other people it can be hard
nobody ever argues that walmart greeters don’t deserve to make the bare minimum living wage for the work that they do because for some reason people believe training an ability for your whole fucking life and then spending countless hours creating individualized pieces to the specification of your commissioners is easier and of less value to society than saying hello to people who walk into a walmart
it’s fucking ILLEGAL to pay a walmart greeter 7 dollars for an hour of work, and yet people will sneer at an artist who doesn’t want to work at a $2/hr wage
i don’t care if an artist is hawking terrible weeaboo pictures of his fucking shitty naruto OCs rubbing their massive inflated lactating jugs all over each other, he is entitled to set his price at the minimum wage. you don’t have to buy art that you don’t like, but getting indignant over an artist expecting the most basic grade of compensation for the time spent makes you the worst kind of garbage shit trash
Let’s repeat that last part for emphasis.
“Getting indignant over an artist expecting the most basic grade of compensation for the time spent makes you the worst kind of garbage shit trash”
Yep, sounds better the second time. People advocate fair trade goods (and granted, they’re not necessarily the same ones who commission art), and yet this exists. They can shut up and draw their own elf ears-and-sword-toting Mary Sue nonsense (I bet your OC’s got wings, right? Ooh, what about horns? Heterochromia too, oh wow you’re an amazing character designer. Black and red color scheme? Wow, SO CREATIVE THERE).
↑ This. I read in an Andrew Loomis book that if you don’t know what something looks like, you need to find out.
But of course, you can’t just reference anything. Don’t copy someone’s mistakes, for example. The reference should also supplement a piece. It’s not excusable to just copy someone’s photograph and call it your original drawing, either, (because the composition, lighting, etc. belongs to that photographer) unless you’re consciously appropriating to make a deliberate, derivative work. (One would credit either way, though.)
Actually, that can be explained with ~SCIENCE~
The sketchiness of line art mimics the natural lack of clarity in our peripheral vision. When we look at the real world, our high definition fovea can only focus on a small area at a time. By having a very clean line art, it creates the unnatural feel of high clarity over a large area that’s not possible when we look at real life, therefore line art tends to appear stiff and not as appealing as the sketch. This sketichiness technique was first utilized by impressionists to create an optical illusion of motion (along with other techniques like equiluminance).
Reblogging for an interesting bit of SCIENCE.
Fuck me, I KNEW there was a reason! FUCK YOU, SCIENCE, YOU ASSHOLE
EVERYTHING CAN BE EXPLAINED WITH SCIENCE
SCIENCE! WHAT CAN’T IT DO!
Remember that Catwoman #0 cover that made such a kerfuffle a few months back? Well, it seems like DC’s quietly changed it. I’m not entirely sure if this is March redrawing it (he is capable of drawing more real-life women, from what I’ve seen), or if this is Adriana Melo, who’s drawing the interiors for this issue. Either way, I’m sure this redraw will be a lot more preferable to folks who follow your site, and I’m pretty sure this is the first professional/official redraw I’ve ever seen.
That looks quite good, though her legs look a bit odd to me, one seems really long. But, I like that DC did listen to the criticisms and changed the cover.
And yes, this is the first redraw that didn’t come with the “fan art” tag.

Damn girl, that is one scary waistline you got there. This is from one of the Christopher Hart books I still have from my anime days. There is some scary anatomy going in them that amateur artists are likely to not notice, which is extremely harmful to their development.
Oh and as an added bonus he seems to think main female characters have no business being plain normal looking girls.
He acts as if people need to be tricked into paying attention to superhero stories involving women. “Well if she’s not hot, nobody’s going to notice! It’s not like they’re here to read about the hero doing awesome things or anything.” Plus, you know, there’s that whole story telling and writing thing that comics have, I think that tends to draw people to the story too. Also, I think there’s a false dichotomy going on. The choice isn’t between “plain” and the one body type and style he likes. You can make a character look interesting and “glamorous” and not have her look like an Escher Girl.
Also the girl at the top frightens me.
Oh, Christopher Hart. Every time I pass by his ‘instructional how-to-draw books’ at Kinokuniya/Borders/Basheer, I want to set the shelf on fire.
Books like these teach cliches and stereotypes, not strong basics from which budding artists can build a solid foundation >_>
(The first picture at the top) How can someone draw hands that nicely and not handle the human figure?
How? Pff, wouldn’t be surprised if he copied something. It’s like Hart doesn’t have his own drawing conventions (except for “fail,” if that’s one) in all of these books because they’re so inconsistent.
I’m under the assumption that Scott Clark has never seen a real senior citizen.
The speech bubble is also wildly appropriate. No, really, dear, I can see why.
(From SPAWN/WILDC.A.T.S: Devil’s Day)
OH MY GOD. I didn’t even realize she was MEANT to be elderly until I wondered WTF was wrong with her face and then read your comment. And I didn’t know she was sitting either because of her super long pelvic bone. What the hell.
It scares me that Scott Clark can’t even imagine a woman looking like anything other than coming out of Maxim, that the only change he does for an elderly woman is put wrinkles on her face.
Okay, there are a lot of egregious things on Eschergirls but this is… it’s… I can’t…
This drives me nuts. Someone not only paid for this to be made, someone also paid to take it home.
