I have not! Not until this coming thursday.
Notorious arter and reader of comics.
This is mainly an Marvel Comics/movies + Lord of the Rings art blog with a slight smattering of Game of Thrones, Parks and Recreation, Community and more.
I am always happy to answer any asks sent my way!
This blog is occasionally NSFW and NOT spoiler-free. If you ever need me to tag anything, trigger or otherwise, please let me know!
IT WAS SO PHOBS. AND ALSO RE-READING THE SITCOMARILLION. AND ALSO MY WIFE EGGING ME ON. ALSO HERSELF. BLARGH.
Hey thanks! That’s definitely something I wasn’t aware of. I had no idea, sitting in restaurants with my wife and my friends, taking cautious bites of food that tastes like shit lest it cripple me fore three days, that gluten free bread just didn’t measure up to the real thing.
Sometimes, it’s SO bad, that I just want to eat real bread. I want to put myself through three days of fucking body horror. Vomiting, living in the bathroom, arthritic joint pain so bad that I can’t walk without a cane, blackout migraines and mood swings so severe that I’ve screamed myself hoarse.
But to avoid the actual nightmare that is gluten free bread, in honor of your suffering, I’m happy to do it! What maniac asshole thought they should try to offer a pain-free alternative to people like me, who suffer from Celiacs Disease, and other gluten and wheat allergies. How dare they put something on this earth that you might one day stumble onto, and feel the need to remind me, a former pastry chef who can no longer enjoy something that I love dearly, how fucking disappointing every meal has now become?
I’m so sorry for your struggle. It must have been unbearable.
- Has tumblr caused you to stop liking any fandoms, if so, which and why?
Eeeehhhhhh no, I don’t think so. A few characters, maybe. I was never a HUGE Loki fan, I still fucking love the old creeper Dark Reign era Loki, and Blood Brothers/Trials of Loki, but I don’t have much love for young pretty Loki. I don’t think that’s the fans, more the over-saturation of the character.
Most shows make me stop liking them on their own, they don’t need the fandoms for that ;)
WHAT SHUT UP YOU’RE RAD!
I have not ;) Although I have drawn some members of her family, which has not been explicitly mentioned.
That will be revealed in Scales, but not for a veeeeeeery long time. I CAN tell you that Lavadad is not her birth father. He found that baby a’wandering.
Scales is going fucking great, thank you for asking! Every page feels better than the last :)
I’m working on three things right now. A little fancomic that I got a bug for and can’t shake, a commission, and a big ol’ giveaway for Scales, as the comic blog reached a follow milestone a few days ago!
The fancomic is so fucking stupid I will tbh be thrilled if it gets like eight notes. I have to lay off the Tolkien…
Hey duders it’s totally cool, thank YOU for your very respectful reply :) I learned way back in my tumblr baby days that screaming at anons gets you nowhere. Stick to your guns. Don’t run with scissors. etc.
I understand that Leto has some fans out there, and that’s great, that doesn’t have any impact on my life whatsoever. I have a lot of problems with Dallas Buyer’s Club, a lot of which are personal, and it breaks my heart to see something like his portrayal lauded and defended.
But thank you for your very chill response, it was hella respectful and you are a-okay in my book, anon!
Aw thank you honey!
And now for the mantra of the gluten-intolerant:
THANK FUCK FOR RICE NOODLES AND CORN TORTILLAS.
Okay so I’ve gotten, approximately, a shit-ton of these since reblogging that text post. And you’re right, he did thank what is sadly a massive group of people. But I’m not going to delete the post, and I’m not going to amend it. The problems with the movie he starred in do not begin nor end with his acceptance speech.
I would delete it if he had specifically mentioned transwomen.
I would delete it if he went back in time and said ‘No, I’m sorry, as a cis-gendered male I cannot take this role, here is a list of many, many incredibly talented transfemale actresses that can do this character more justice than I can.’
Done! I’ve deleted the post, if you see it, please don’t reblog it.
Haha oh man. Something I could get PAID for? I would love to do Marvel variant covers, or like….a Mini Marvels-style one page backup in something. I think Scales is something really special and one day it will be Mary’s and my future.
But if I’m totally honest, I just want to draw hilariously stupid tolkien shit all day. Like the Glorfindel and Thranduil comics I’ve done. I want to do a Tokien comic that’s part Mean Girls part Real Housewives.
Elves behaving badly.
Hey you’re so welcome, and thanks to everyone that helped out!
I’m afraid I don’t know of any off the top of my head (I’m swamped in commissions today otherwise I would take some time to dig around, sorry!!) but maybe some of my followers know?
Can anyone suggest comics with an ace main character?
