Dumb Marco/Jean horsin’ around doodles after today’s episode.
Confession: I really really really didn’t like Marco when he was first introduced, and for an incredibly stupid reason. When Jean calls him out for lying about his intentions for entering the Military Police, I misread the scene. I thought Jean was supposed to be correct in his assumption. So for a good while I thought Marco was kind of sleazy for lying about something like that…
Then I realized that Jean’s a moron (and so am I), and that—Franz and Hannah aside—Marco is the purest soul in the whole 104th!
I guess I hit the point where everything stresses me out, these days—even self-indulgent doodles like this.
Rumi’s just popping in to let you know: “You’re alright.”
Doodles of this guy, trying to get the hang of him…
Why did I give you this stupid hairstyle, I whisper to myself as I draw three views of it.
Alright guys, let’s take a minute to talk about my girl Esmeralda.
In Disney’s 1996 film “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” Esmeralda is, and without question, a complete badass.
She cares about the fair treatment of all people—not just her own—and is staunch in her beliefs and values, even going as far as to publicly stand against the powers that be who would oppose her. She never backs down from these beliefs just to take the easy way out, and barely even flinches in fear when she’s about to be burned at the stake. (Hell, she spits in Frollo’s face instead. He deserves it, too, the creep.)
Also, she totally owns her sexuality and uses it to her advantage when she wants (because ain’t nothin’ wrong with that!), but doesn’t think it needs to be the only thing that defines her, either—she has wit, talent, intelligence, courage, and compassion all at her disposal as well. She’s also all about making friends with good people who are worth her time, (like Quasimodo). And for her, if she happens to find love with a male friend (as she does with Phoebus), that’s fine, but simply having platonic male companionship is fine—even cherished—as well!
In fact, the only time she isn’t being an awesome, ideal role model badass who can old her own against the world is when she’s nearly died from smoke inhalation. And really—who can blame her for that?
Esmeralda for Disney Princess 2014, basically.
I’m…. way too tired to draw properly tonight… but I love Princess Kraehe… so here is a very weird drawing of her.
Quick sketch before bed. I’d like to refine it beyond geometric shapes sometime…
We had a misunderstanding about what Pants’ general look should be, so when laerties came home we worked together and came up with this!
laerties and I haven’t quite settled on what Pants looks like under her head scarf. I have no idea if this is quite right, but I figured I’d take a stab at it anyway by way of expression chart. She looked super manly until I added eyelashes!? But I hate resorting to eyelashes to differentiate the gender of a character… hmm.
Today’s warm up is Ymir and Christa~
