I don’t believe the wording is the only problem. Anyway this isn’t about “fixing” or “saving” it until no one has an issue with it anymore, but about acknowledging the whole situation happened in the first place.
I’m sorry that my ways of coping do not measure up to yours, that I can’t help but feel bad for making others feel bad, and that I want to stop beating myself over it by symbollically letting it go.
Disliking something and being offended by it is not the same.
Disliking is “I don’t like this drawing style/coloring/crossover”—I wouldn’t delete a post because of that. But someone seeing it as reinforcing a bigger picture that goes way beyond just me is worth considering.
If I step on your foot by accident I’m still going to apologize. That’s not “giving in.”
I’m deleting it for me. It will still exist elsewhere on tumblr and the internet, with and without criticisms.
While my intention was a werewolf/dog joke, it doesn’t exist in a vacuum! I don’t believe anyone has attacked me personally over this, but either way I just wanted to acknowledge that what I made wasn’t cool by some people.
I could request a full removal by filing for DMCA takedown, but I won’t because I think it’s important that its reblogs—especially the ones with commentary—still exist.
Deleting it is more a gesture than a solution, meaning that I don’t want it on my blog and art tag anymore.
ameround replied to your post “Hey guys, heads up that I’m going to delete that Teen Wolf/Adventure…”
yoooo, can u elaborate this just a little? how is that racist? 0:
You can find pretty recent reblog-commentary in the post’s notes that go into it. I realize most people didn’t see it that way but that doesn’t mean it’s not problematic, accidentally or not.
And tbh this my way of un-stressing for the future if I get a bunch of notes for it again.
Hey guys, heads up that I’m going to delete that Teen Wolf/Adventure Time crossover doodle from when I didn’t know what kind of problematic shit a thoughtless fandom joke could perpetuate.
I should’ve taken it down when the issue first cropped up, but it’s been making the rounds again so I guess better late than never. I don’t want it on my blog reinforcing any racist implications anymore, no matter how unintentional.
R doesn’t want it back anyway
do you ever just insert your otp into out of context scenes from friends because
thank you very much! coulson belongs to house hogwarts and that’s it. :P
i feel kinda bad because the avengers art for me was a rather brief period of time but that post is still getting notes ;-;
Hi there, and thanks so much! I hate giving this advice as much as I hate receiving it, but it really is just practice. I’m assuming by “stepping out of your comfort zone” you mean that you’re a traditional media user trying digital? If you’re uncomfortable with the hardware, try rougher nibs or taping a piece of paper over the tablet (I did for a while, but kept getting food on it hahaha).
A warm up tip I learned recently is going over the same line repeatedly without making it thicker/hairy-looking. And even though that’s more of a traditional media exercise, it can’t hurt because like, I stroke+undo+repeat 5-15 times before settling on the “right” line, every line.
As for brushes, I typically use the photoshop’s default hard round for both lines and coloring, or these for more texture. Play with opacity, flow, and other brush settings in photoshop, especially Texture and Dual Brush if your computer can handle it. If you got dough to spare, I recently bought this kyle t webster guy’s watercolor brush set for really cool effects and more subtle shading, and these frenden pencil/inker presets.
Also make sure to take advantage of PS’s rotate view tool (should be keyboard shortcut r. i think it was added in like cs4??? so i was really excited when i found it lol) and always try to draw way bigger than necessary. Because I tend to zoom in and out a lot, and you don’t want zooming in to get pixelated, bleh.
