The male gaze as film-default. Reminds me of this webcomic about male gaze as comic book default: http://www.shortpacked.com/2011/comic/book-13/05-the-death-of-snkrs/falseequivalence/
At first I was like “Why are all the awsome smart people reblogging this? It looks stupid.” And then I watched it, and, ohhh.
I really want this as a poster.
Yay old Shadowcat costume :-D
Yes, she’s Shadowcat. Deal with it.

Madame Xanadu issue 1 cover! One of my favorites. Took me a long time, but it was totally worth it. X’s become arrows; all the corners were symbolic of the times and places she would go in that arc, and it became the back design to all her tarot cards.
- Cover sketch
- Color flats
- I colored the linework—something I used to do more of back in the day. Every line was colored meticulously to match the colors around it!
- Added texture/logo. This cover was all about the textures, which I created in Corel Painter using the watercolor brushes.
I loved this book, so very much.
hi guys! this is a comic i made for a final in my comics in literature class. we had to do a research paper on a topic we’d discussed in class and then accompany it with a comic with a relevant subject. my paper was about hyper-sexualization of women in comic books, but i decided to broaden it out here as well as personalize it and make myself the subject and discuss something i’ve been subjected to in the convention circuit and on the internet as well as thousands of other women, as well as give a cue to thought about how the comic book industry as well as the video game industry and even just media in general (all of which are male dominated) push such ridiculous pressures onto girls and women.
also, it feels kind of silly to have to add this since i hope it’s obvious, but i am very aware that there are men that don’t subscribe to this attitude, and am incredibly grateful that these issues are brought to light to people other than the ones that are subjected to it.
anyway haha i have literally been staring at this for 9 hours i don’t even know which direction is up anymore. thanks for reading!!!
makes me happy
Sadly, not as effective a line as one would hope. Even tho it my case it is the truth.
Sengoku Batman - by Scott Wade
It’s so long ago that I posted page 3 of the Edwardian Batman story (yes, I know…) that I thought I’d post it again with the new page 2 (which might be page 1).
I do what I want! (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ┻━┻
