monsters don’t need implants or a bitchin’ monster car
monsters only need to love the monsters that they are
I finally read Monster Pulse and so should you. Seriously, guys, I—I’m a little in love over here, why isn’t there more yet.
Does it still count as a warm-up sketch if I change my mind about drawing after? >___>
For some mysterious reason everyone on my dash seems to think I should catch up with GLTAS, gosh, I cannot imagine what would get them so excitable.
Things that are really hard to do: design a lame superhero costume your teenage superheroine hates but has zero choice about due to, well, her being a minor and said costume’s canon designers being her parents. You can’t make it sexy or cool in any way, you can’t make it too tight or too flattering, you can’t even really make it practical … oh wait gee that would exclude everything superhero outfits traditionally strive to be? Aside from the practical part, anyway.
There’s also this weird disconnect where the parents obviously can’t think of their kid’s clothing as being sexualized no matter what it is because, you know, their kid, but at the same time can be so hyperaware and hyperconcerned about what constitutes “slutty”. So basically Starlight is thirteen and wants to be eighteen, and her parents think she’s eight. Also all the “cute” options that pass in comics—i.e. pleated skirts, cheerleader uniforms, frilly little dresses, really just skirts in general—don’t actually work when a sane human being is thinking about their baby girl flashing a supervillain every time they drop-kick one of his evil robot minions. Yeah, just … no.
But yes no seriously can we please discuss how hard it is to design a superhero outfit someone’s parents put them in. Spoilers: it is really hard.
Er. Feedback/suggestions, anyone?
Reblog this post with samples of your art! I’m trying to get an idea of who—-outside of the artists currently working with me—-would be interested in getting commissioned to do cover art for LGBTQ superhero short stories.
Yes, this is definitely an excellent choice for post 200. <3

… this is actually, uh, surprisingly depressing to look at. I think I got worse over the course of the year. -____-
