Monket on Manic's Back-TeaserNew Sonic Underground
"Monkey on Manic's Back"
EXT-ROBOTROPOLICE MARKET PLACE-NOON
ON CANDY STAND
It's a crowded and busy day. Aleena's voice is then heard. In the crowd, Manic is trying to get through. He's ducking under arms, legs, rudely pushing his way thorgh, jumping over people, boxes, and anything else standing in the way.
It's very easy to find ourselves in sticky situations. Most of the time, it's not a big deal. But Manic is about to find himself in a very big one. An important lesson is that sometimes, we need hep from others to get out of these problems.
There is a close up to one of the outside stands. It appears to be a candy stand. In one of the boxes there are little purple bags of candy dust. A passerby has a violet blue bag of something else, and accidentally drops it into the stand. He tries to pick it up, but grabs the wrong bag. Manic runs by. He sees the stand, but runs past it. He then later comes back into view. He looks around and t
Real Scientific Danger of My Artistic InfluenceOne of the many complaints lobbed at me is that I have enormous influence on a younger generation and therefor it is incumbent upon me to shape up and fly right so these young tikes get the best artistic advice possible. IE: People worried that my “bad art and methods” are corrupting the next generation of artists and therefor I should stop making art altogether to prevent this.
Setting aside the ignorant and harmful messages that this sends to young artists (such as the ignorant concept that all young artists only ever follow ONE artistic influence their entire life and aren’t influenced by ALL the art around them at all times), I decided to see how much credibility this “fear” actually had... using MATH.
So I have about 57,790 watchers on DA. I’m not counting other sites like Facebook or my website because there’s obviously some overlap, and some of the people who hate me will fill in that gap. So roughly 57,790 people on the planet watch me.
Tropes Vs Women in Video Games: Part 1Tropes Vs Women in Video Games: Part 1 Damsels in Distress
Anita Sarkeesian's first video in the much ballyhooed Tropes Vs Women in Video Games has finally been released. The verdict? Acceptable. There's really nothing that offensive in the video at all, as it's mostly just a history of the "Damsels in Distress" trope and how it's used in video games. It's fact based and fairly interesting to watch.
The only two criticisms I have are as follows:
1. As someone who's done a LOT of research into the making of Donkey Kong (primarily for the short Flossed In Time storyline that I illustrated for Brent and Dan http://www.brentalflossthecomic.com/fit/?id=1 ), I can say without question that her info about how Popeye came to be turned into Donkey Kong is wrong.
Donkey Kong came about because Nintendo of America's president Minoru Arakawa placed a large order for Radar Scope, a popular Japanese game). By the time the game arrived in New York, months had passed and in
Frozen Review (no spoilers)Saw Frozen finally. Gotta say, it was much better than I thought it was going to be.
Like many of you, I was privy to the ongoing “takedown” of this latest Disney cartoon through various forums and blogs online. And this is a spectacular reason why you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover. So much of the pre-release hatred was focused on trivial things (some of which had been changed without the community knowing for a long time) and on pointing out minor technical errors that I kinda feel like people were WANTING to hate this movie from the start. (And full disclosure here: I even participated in some of that pre-release hate.)
To be honest, after I saw it I felt kinda “meh” about it. But the more I’ve let it sink in and the more I’ve thought about it after the fact, the more I began to appreciate it (Which is always good). It’s better to have a movie start off meh and become a favorite over time than one which y
Ideals vs CharactersI am always amazed at what ends up being “controversial” in my artwork. While with some works I KNOW it’s going to be controversial (such as any time I bring up politics or religion), there are often a lot of times where I just make a gag strip and think nothing of it... only to come back the next day and see people writing up ESSAYS on why it’s the worse thing ever.
Granted, I have the undesirable position of having a lot of people following me who insist on inserting drama where no drama really exists. So part of that is just the fact that I’m semi-famous on the internet. And still... It just baffles me how quickly people feel the need to see the worse in everything.
Right now, the past couple of NSYAC strips featuring Emily and Jade have gotten some... interesting responses. There seems to be this strange perception that Emily MUST conform to some arbitrary standard of a righteous educational achiever simply for the fact that she’s going to colleg

Japan Trip!Sup Gaang!
Well I just got back from japan! It was amazing, Japan was on my bucket list and it was a dream come true to visit. I was there with :iconcheeks-74: :iconryanbnjmn:. While there I got little sleep because I was helping out Cheeks color a Superman comic for Dc Comics (which is announced to hit stands digitally Nov 11 and Nov 18)
The flight took foreeever.
Difference Number 1: People don't chain up there bikes. They just leave them in the streets and no one steals them.
Also, what do you think of my new bike...
Difference Number 2: A lot of people don't even close there doors, because people rarely steal!
I saw a huge temple in the distance from the hotel.
So we walked like 3 miles to get to it. It was an adventure mostly because we couldn't ask for directions because no one understood us. Annnd we didn't know the temple name. This was a huge bell it the top of set of Totoro-like stairs onto a mountain. It was so beautiful.
We got to ride the worlds fastest train to Mount Fu
How to AdultSociety tends to drop all of us on our head as soon as we turn 18. We are coddled and sheltered for the near first two decades of our life. (Just think, average life is about 70 years. so 2/7 or little under a 1/3 of our life we spend being led by the hand. Back to this ->) Once we hit that magical age of 18 though we are immediately expected to do everything that no one ever taught us. So we here at Three Pence (YAH) decided it's high time someone taught something!
Yes. You need to know how to do this. The government itself requires it, though never thought to teach us how to do it. As I know very little about this just go to this video --------------> HERE
There actually is a lot of people who can't do this. For those of us who do, it's a foreign concept. If you don't, here's a quick run down:
