I'm Shain, and welcome to my Tumblr, home of my redraw series The Dunning-Kruger Effect on Man-In-The-Moon Marigolds. Check the tag "DK effect" to see how much progress in drawing one can make with very little talent and a lot of work. Not very inspiring!
I write and draw 3 weekly webcomics, Georgie Girls, Behind the Blue Door and The Element of Surprise, all on my website, Mister Kitty and Friends.
The first time I ever heard the phrase resting bitch face, a photo of Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock was used to illustrate it so…
do men have resting bitch faces as well or do they not have negative characteristics ascribed to them for putting on a neutral rather than a deliriously happy facial expression
A coloured in-between from the animation I’m working on. I mention it’s an in-between because a lot of times my in-betweens look bad, a side-effect of the key drawings not being good, or at least not matching up well. This one doesn’t look too bad though, so I guess that means the key drawings are OK. This particular scene is tightly-in-betweened, unlike most of the scenes, which are quite fast. It’s a “music video” so the cuts have to be fairly quick.
I think this is the one near me… I’m def. getting this mug when I finally go there.
came across the best mug ever the other day
Here’s a little “extra” for my Dunning-Kruger Effect series: These are basically the same picture, both illustrating (entirely separate) scenes in my webcomic “The Element of Surprise”. The one on the left was done before I began drawing the actual comic, back in 2008; the one on the right is a still from the animated video I’m working on and was made a few months ago. There’s not a huge amount of improvement but I think in terms of anatomy, perspective, and even painting, there is a step up to be found. I wasn’t actually trying to “improve” on the former drawing at all when I made the 2nd one (actually forgot it existed, lawls) so there’s that too.
HELLO MY NAME IS GUY INCOGNITO. I HAVE NEVER READ CEREBUS NOW LET ME TELL YOU ALL ABOUT CEREBUS. PS I AM NOT A MISOGYNIST. I MEAN, DAVE SIM IS NOT A MISOGYNIST. IT’S NOT HIS FAULT ALL WOMEN ARE VOIDS. THANK YOU AND GOOD NIGHT.;
Dave Sim is the creator of the fames comic series Cerebus. I’ve not read the series yet, but I respect it as one of the great independent works of the 70’s through the early 2000’s.
Sim has become a recluse and a shut in for a while now due to the fact that people have called him a misogynist. It’s a word that gets thrown around a lot at people, and often it’s true, but in this case it isn’t. He’s been called a misogynist because of a chapter of Cerberus which deals with certain thematic elements that can be looked at as such. The series is an analysis of life in general, with all it’s positives and negatives and all it’s ups and downs. Therefore it will indeed explore topics such as racism, sexism, and other types of hate and ignorance, including misogyny. The book also explores positives of life such as love, art, and beauty. The material that is cited against him as misogynistic is small snippets of a chapter of the series, and they were taken completely out of context.
I learned all this through an email today from a very good man whom I’ve been buying my comics from for the past few months. He stands up for Mr. Sim having known him for a good while and having had long, personal conversations with him in the past and recently. I’m standing up for Mr. Sim too, and I’ve signed a petition that states that I don’t believe he is a misogynist. The target of signatures is 2000, and it right now has over 500. I don’t know what kind of difference I can make by posting this here, but I hope some of you will look at this and sign the petition as well. Maybe you know his work, maybe you don’t, but this is a good man who is wrongly being slandered for his work being taken out of context and I don’t want that to stand. Hopefully this petition can surpass the 2000 signatures and Mr. Sim will see that he has fans who believe that he is the wonderful person he is.
Here is a link to the petition form. Simply sign your name. You don’t need to bother with affiliation or “number on the form.” Then submit and you will be recorded. A page will pop up asking you to donate, but this is the operators of the site asking for money so you can just close this out. It takes a few seconds and doesn’t cost you a penny. So please sign and help Dave Sim to feel better about himself and his accomplishments in the comics medium.
This annoys me.
It’s this idea that people can wrongly accuse someone because of their own high horse morals.
This guy, based on what Ryley has said, isn’t misogynistic, in the way that anyone who makes a WW2 movie isn’t a Nazi or Hitler Supporter.
Um, instead of taking Ryley’s word, or anybody else’s word, on the subject, why not let Dave Sim speak for himself? “Tangents” was written and published by Sim in Cerebus #265.
