Whenever people point to Mary Shelley and say “a woman invented sci-fi you know” I just think “well, I mean, technically a woman invented the whole concept of authoring books as far as we can tell but hey who’s keeping track”

krekka01 said: Nice redraws on these comic covers. I have issues, though. I agree that looking like you have no internal organs, or that your back bone is made of rubber is pretty bad, but comic book artists have to ensure that covers are as appealing as possible to entice new readers to pickup their issues. The problem I have with some of your redraws is that, for some of them, everything looks too static and undynamic. Sure, they're anatomically correct, but sometimes, you have to skew bodies to sell.

lesstitsnass:

Yes, but. 

An enticing cover doesn’t have to be sexualised to be enticing. There are plenty of artists that make kickass covers with great women looking awesome. This blog is a repository of the ones that are twisting for the sake of T&A, and I do agree some of my redraws are much weaker than they could have been, and that’s because 1- I’m not perfect, 2- I’m always learning and 3- redrawing over another existing drawing stiffens up everything. I’m trying to keep roughly the same pose as what was originally drawn and showing you don’t have to thrust out her ass or arch her chest out to make something appealing. 

Listen, I do this blog partly as an educational thing. I want people to develop a critical eye, question what they see, shift the status quo, and if they are artists, pick up a few tips along the way. There’s a reason I keep these sketches loose and unfinished. I’m not trying to comment on people’s style, I’m commenting on their posing choices, and urging people to rethink how they approach art of female characters. I’m not saying “my way or the highway”, I’m saying “it could be better and here’s a suggestion”.

In the recent redraw I did, I fixed Greg Land’s cover because the art wasn’t well composed, but it wasn’t a sexualised cover. As soon as I fixed the legs on SW, I realised the composition would now be crap because the legs would be in front of Silk. I still plodded on. The Manara cover I fixed because the posing WAS sexualised, the pose made me feel uncomfortable, and I wasn’t the only one who felt that way about it. I have nothing against the man as an artist or against his skills. I have nothing against erotic art. The rendering was very nice (if the costume was meant as body paint). I just argued that his posing choice was inappropriate for this cover. 

I’ll lead you to my post about style for more discussion on the matter. Look in particular at my comments on Joe Mad to get what I’m saying.

Also, arguing that these covers are composed to be appealing is also a crap excuse.

A couple years ago Chris Samnee and other well known cover artists had a panel on what goes into making a good cover, and analyzed some of the classic well known covers, as well as their own work.

And lemme tell you, the Manera and the Land cover aren’t up to snuff. There just doesn’t seem to be that level of thoughtfulness, and the art is just distracting. I mean, think of the spiderwoman variant? We saw the variant without the logo, but the final cover will probably have the comic title either slapped over her ass, or slapped over the city so ALL you see is her ass.

And then there’s the Greg Land one, which is just kinda lazy background wise. There’s really no background there, and the spiderwebs just disguise that fact. And to be honest, both Jessica and Silk don’t seem like they are on the same plane. I’d argue jessica looks like she’s jumping up, but if you compare her to silk, and where Silk’s legs are placed, then jessica would have to be leapng low in a horizontal path. IDK, that just bothers me, and I admit that isn’t a huge complaint, but honestly the cover isn’t dynamic, and doesn’t sell the story, and doesn’t even sell the characters well, since all you know picking it up is ‘Okay, she is in a costume and she is athletic?’

Your bottled water habit is sucking California dry

If you’re reading this, chances are very high that your home has at least one — and maybe more! — magic appliance that produces clean water suitable for drinking. That’s one reason to avoid paying for bottled water.

Another reason? There’s a good chance the water you’re buying at the supermarket was bottled in California, a state currently enduring a severe drought.

Turn on the tap instead Follow micdotcom

EVERYONE PLEASE AT LEAST TAKE A QUICK SECOND TO LOOK AT THIS

BECAUSE IT IS EFFECTING THE EXACT AREA I LIVE IN

Lots of people believe bottled water is safer and cleaner than tap water, when in reality there’s no evidence proving such a thing.

Penn & Teller’s Bullshit!: Bottled Water segment, gives a very good and thorough summary of the bottled water culture https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHx6BX3HZJc

You want better water? Buy a Zero filter. SRSLY. Stop buying bottled if possible. You need water with you? Get reusable acrylic or glass water bottles (wrapped in a silicon sleeve) and fill it up from your filter pitcher. SAVE MONEY, SAVE MY STATE

Also worth mentioning a lot of soft drinks use water from these areas, it’s best to just generally avoid drinks that come in in plastic bottles.

Good news, everyone! After the fourth time my dashboard recommended me the same Mortal Instruments fanfiction, I finally decided to find out if there’s a way to block these posts on mobile devices without Xkit. And there isn’t, but there is a way to remove individual recommended posts and prevent them from showing up on your dashboard again!

This blog taught me that there is actually a hidden X button next to the “Follow” button that lets you tell Tumblr that you don’t like the post and want to block it. The ignore button is invisible, but it is there and shows up when you hover your finger/cursor above it.
