A part of me thinks maybe they didn't read it, but more so, it makes me feel like I didn't draw it as well as I'm supposed to. I guess what i'm asking is how does someone at your level handle a feedback that puts you off? This is new territory for me and i'm bummed but I know it's important for leveling up.

    I think it’s different for everyone no matter what level you are. For me, I know I enjoy feedback that is thoughtful and engaged and done from a good place. But I also know I’m a very sensitive person. That sensitivity can either lead to hasty emotions or introspection and digestion of said critique. I suppose you just have to question whether or not you find this feedback valuable, in terms of the quality and or the source. Do you respect this person and think they have valid points? Or are they just saying “this blows” with no real input or effort? Ask your critic some questions so you don’t drive yourself crazy wondering what you’re not doing “right.” At the end of the day remember you can learn from any situation no matter how shitty it starts out. You’ll either end up upping your game from a good critique or hardening your skin from some hater criticism. ;)

     
  4. I think that makes total sense, and thank you for that!  I didn’t mean for it to come off as stereotyping an entire culture in any way.  My original comment was referring to the way Namor was drawn by a certain artist, and I should make it clear that I am partial to it because I appreciated the artist nudging Namor into a more clearly poc visualization.

    That Chris Pretty as Indy that’s been going around the webs has been pretty damn sweet.  Leia?  That’s a great one.  I have no clue.  That’s a lot of pressure to recast.  Omg I’m sweating.

    Oh dear.  Hmm.  Chuckie from Rugrats?  A beautiful, big, fiery orange bear.  

     
  7. Oh my gosh, you’re so right.  Fuck, I feel stupid.

    I suppose for me, he’s always been drawn in this manner that made me feel his features tipped Asian.  If I were to come up with a water deity, culling from a Polynesian source would make sense.  So I guess I’m just one of those horrible people turning a white character into a POC for no good reason.

     
  8. I have not, and I wish I had whipped cream in my house cause my milk just went bad and now’s as good a time as any I s’pose.

    Never have I ever drawn Namor.  But if I did, I would totally go that sexy, tan, Polynesian look he had for a bit.  I forget who drew him like that, but it just makes so much sense to me that he would be Polynesian-like.  And I suppose now is as good a time as any to spill, but Namor-drawer-extraordinaire kristaferanka, wuvable oaf jakewyattriot and queen of the universe babsdraws and I will be gathering together the Best Friends Gang for ECCC next year ;)

     

  10. shadowcts said: what other celebrities could you see as storm and/or magneto?

    I am down with Angela Bassett as Storm.  Been down with that since day one.  Magneto…hmmm.  I’m not sure how old Ian McKellen was when he first stepped into the role but I always imagined Mags to be younger and fitter.  I’ve seen chatter of current day Viggo Mortensen being an appropriate choice and to me he fits the bill quite nicely.  55, still pretty damn fit, silvery and menacing looking.
