Imagine your most cherished and sacred comic book character, doesn’t matter what. Pick the one you care about the most.
Now, imagine someone suddenly gains ownership of a comic book studio with the rights to use this character.
They have no industry experience, they are not an artist, they are not a writer, and they have in fact never read a comic book in their life.
They just “love” this character based on what they have learned from internet memes, word of mouth and other cultural osmosis.
From this outsider knowledge they have what they feel are much “better” ideas for how to write the character, so they hire a bunch of industry professionals and make them produce a new series for them, exerting a lot of personal creative control over every step of the process.
This casual, newbie fan not only ignores most prior lore, history and deeper nuance to this character, but dismisses it all as inferior to their own vision, and millions of people who also have no personal experience with comic books eat up this new version as the most brilliant, most valid they have ever seen, shooting down any and all critique from you, from comic book artists, from anyone who cared about or understood your favorite character before any of this.
This is Elon Musk’s relationship with science and tech you goofs.

Hmmmm.... Maybe I should really get into Digimon.....
There’s an odd little developmental history to this one but what’s IMPORTANT is that now if you were one of the kids in a digimon anime your sidekick could be this:

God I miss these guys.
[Image Description: Drawing of a redesigned Joseph and Nathan from the 2014 webtoon Roommates. Joseph is on the left. He has fluffy hair and a piercing on his right ear. He wears a V-Neck atop long sleeved T shirt alongside cargo shorts. He is smiling and putting his left hand on his friend's left arm. Nathan is on the right. He has messy hair that conceals his right eye. His left eye appears to have bags. On his broken nose is a scar. He wears a beanie alongside a denim coat atop a tank top and also some jeans. He seems to be irritated, as indicated by him rolling his visible eye and the little tornado symbol above him. His left hand is on his side.]
"i would die for you" this, "i'd walk through fire for you that"
what about "i'd live for you" romances? what about "i never thought i'd be worth the work it would take to piece myself together"?
what about "i don't believe i'm worth it, but for you i'll try"

Just came across a screenshot of this old SMG4 scene again and... Well.... This speaks for itself I suppose
[Image Description: Screenshot of six recolored Marios. 5 of them are surrounding FM, the red and black Mario in the middle. FM says “Your humping a Peach Poster!”]

Is it weird that despite me being disgusted by semi-liquid stuff like vomit I really adore stuff like the Goomy line?

Sorry for the flexing but from the same mall I got the flower Eevee also I got what seems to be a bootleg car toy of Komasan?
I'd say bootleg because his eyes aren't as sad looking, the blue fire tufts are flat, and his furoshiki doesn't have the spiral details. Still a well made and cute toy, but just pointing that out.
[Image Description: Image of a plush Komasan. Komasan is a white short canine like youkai with a blue underbelly that has a spiral pattern on it. On his head are two flame like orbs. He has red spiral patterns on his cheeks and lower body. He also has a green furoshiki.]

My Glitchy redesign but he's funky.
His songs would probably be something to do with memes and SM64 I think??? I don't know.
[Image Description: Drawing of a redesigned chibi SMG4 holding a blue and white microphone. He has black asymmetrical hair that covers his left eye. He wears a white tank top with a four on it over a blue T-Shirt. His grey pants have a navy blue belt and his shoes are also navy blue with white soles. Additionally, he has white fingerless gloves with blue straps. He is holding the microphone in his left hand. He seems to be irritated, indicated by his teeth gritting.]

AMA. What is your New Year's resolution? I read on the Net that talking about your personal goals makes them more attainable somehow.
Oh yeah. I remember talking about it at one point but I can’t find that post. My resolution is to make more complex art. But I’ve been exhausted lately which hinders it by a lot. Though I hope my redesign project helps with that.... But even then I’m stumped on that too. But I’m not giving up just yet.

Drew a Pokemon OC for a particular non-Pokemon AU I'm working on. More on her later.
[Image Description: Drawing of Nina the Espurr. Nina is a shiny variation of an Espurr, being pink instead of grey. She wears a blue bowtie with a yellow star on it. She is staring blankly. The text to the left of her is her name Nina.]
