6. Once again, Christopher Hart gives terrible advice to newbie artists.
(3:39:26 AM) Anni: “by making a costume change and a few adjustments to the eyes, you’ll ad a new player to your cast”
(3:39:27 AM) Anni: NO
(3:39:37 AM) Anni: STOP THAT IS NOT HOW YOU MAKE CHARACTERS AHHHHHHHHH
(3:42:37 AM) Anni: iim mad
(3:42:44 AM) Anni: im so gonna write a mean spirited post on my brawg about this crap

Christopher Hart you fucking hack you do not just change eyes, hairstyle and clothes and you have a NEW CHARACTER. what the FUCK. Maybe you can if you want to be a shitty anime artist but people who want to actually make good characters actually do more than slap giant sparkly eyes and drill hair onto a new shovelface like a fucking assembly line from hell! Normal people want a new character to stand out against the rest of their characters and be unique! NORMAL PEOPLE consider their character’s silhouette, their pose, body proportions, facial structure and more! Stop giving awful advice and perpetuating dumb anime bullshit that I was beguiled by for most of my life because I didn’t know any better. Shit, even though I don’t like Total Drama Island’s style, I give them credit for making every character different in their faces, their expressions, their poses and body styles/proportions. They’re unique. You know what I think when I see this shit?

CLANNAD.full_.213438

“Wow! A bunch of stupid fucking anime characters who look exactly the same because they all have the same head, just different hairstyles! If you took off all of their hair you literally couldn’t tell who is who!”

shovelheads
To no one’s surprise, the shovelheads are nearly all exactly the same because most of them are just staring blankly into space with no expression or unique pose. I have never watched Clannad so I don’t know these characters body language/expressions. The middle girl is the most recognizable because she is the only one with an actual expression/pose. But either way these people are not unique to me whether they have their hair on or not. They are all just shovelheads.

All right, I’m kinda bashing on the anime style here but there’s a reason I’ve accumulated so much hatred for it, it’s fucking lazy art! Of course I love watching anime, and as I have witnessed here that Trigger’s animators are insanely talented. But even here in professional anime you can see that people have different faces and bodies. Not everyone has a stupid shovelhead!

7. I have lineart of an adorable picture of Alif I drew a couple days ago but I can’t finish it because I haven’t finalized Alif’s design yet. I SHOULD PROBABLY STOP BEING LAZY AND DO THAT??????

8. I’m hungry and I have to pee. I guess I’ll end this post now
