you know what’s funny? Astrid and Mary are both blonde and fucking badass
I remember posting somewhere once in a thread about why girls aren’t exploited in animation anymore where some guy said, “all the disney girls are drawn to be generally attractive, but I don’t think there are any eye-candy men… or are there? Are there any Disney men that lots of girls like?” and I mentioned Roger. Tons of girls replied agreeing with me and the original guy was like “wait, Roger? from 101 Dalmatians? What’s attractive about him, he’s tall and lanky and has a big nose, he isn’t muscley at all! Wouldn’t you all prefer Gaston or something? Or do you girls think his big nose is indicative of something else?” and I was like “no, you idiot, he’s a silly, goofy guy who likes animals and can play a bunch of instruments, that’s why he’s attractive. What’s the matter with you? Gaston, seriously?”
This is why we need more girls in animation. And more guys like Roger apparently.
This is why I laugh my ass of whenever dudes talk about how men are “objectified” by the media too. Because 9 times out of 10, what men think is “women objectifying men” are characters like Gaston.
And Gaston is NOT a woman-driven fantasy. Gaston is a male wish fulfillment fantasy. Gaston is not what women want, he is what men want to be. He is hyper-masculinity to an extreme degree, dripping with sexism and testosterone. The fact that men think that Gaston is what women want says an awful lot about those men.
While I don’t want to generalize, female fans tend to prefer a very different kind of male hero. We like the Rogers, the Milos, the Hercules. Genuinely kind, often awkward men who are sometimes vulnerable and respectful to women.
Yes, this is a generalization. I own up to that. But I think it’s important to remember that there is often VERY big difference between what MEN want to be and what women WANT in our media.
Reblogging this again because fucking this. And hell, even the muscley dudes (see: Khal Drogo, Hercules, Thor, Captain America) are loved, not because they are muscley, but because they are sweet and loving and adorable. We love Thor because his mispronounces “Hubble” as “Hooble,” not because of what he can do with a hammer.
i will forever reblog this anywhere i possibly can. it’s one of my favorite posts on tumblr EVER. this is the post that prompted me to become roger in our Disney family, as a matter a fact!
with awkward love, admin gosalyn
Awww those tags!

Damn it, Bioshock did their researches right!
This is what everyone does in France.
We wake up at 7am, go on the streets and dance together with our baguettes for 20 minutes at least to honor the baguette god.
The fact that this year Easter is on 4/20 just makes this pic even better

Why is every Digital Painting Illustration guide book in Japanese??
I looked for a Clipstudio Paint Illustration guide book and also a few for Sai, but they were all in Japanese???? Does anyone perhaps know, why there are only Japanese Illustration Guidebooks? and not English ones?
Because CSP is a japanese program??
For most of the general tools, you can use info from mangastudio. many of the functions, however, are very similar to photoshop or paint tool SAI.
What kind of info were you looking for?
Do you need to get things printed for Midterms? SCAD’s District has a list of local printers!
