Feel free to drop me a line, I love to chat and I swear I don't bite and if you are getting anything negative, from friends, family, classmates, teachers, other blogs, really, if there's anything going on I want you to know that you can come to me and I will not judge you, okay? I'm here for you.
BOND is a tiny touch module. It can be a pendant or a bracelet but it comes in pairs. You keep one and you give one to a friend. When you touch it, your friend feels it. No matter where they are on the planet. We don’t do tweets, we do tickles.
The last line “Will you follow me. One last time.” is more for the fans then anything else. This is Peter asking us if we will stand with him on this final visit to Middle Earth. This is truly the end.
i KNOW i’m just beating a long-dead horse by doing this but for god’s sake disney
fyi only superficial things were changed in the edit (hair, eyelash length, freckles, skin tone) the actual model wasn’t changed at all
to be clear: she photoshopped anna’s hair onto hiro’s mom face. a lot of people in reblogs seem to think that the one on the right is literally anna and trying to find miniscule, non-existant differences… which sort of proves the point? that a picture of a different character can be mistaken for anna so easily with just a hairstyle change and that people will still defend the design choice to the death rather than admit the similarities… sheeesh.
I’m gonna play the devil’s advocate here… So, people are fucking expensive to create and using pre-existing models makes things easier on everyone. Also, if you’ll notice that a lot of people do actually look very similar (not as similar as these two, but still). Typically the differences in a group of people is hair, eyes, skin tone, etc. Disney is under pressure to constantly have films out and if they weren’t it would be different, however they are and with deadlines being so close together and the fact that animated films take 5+ years to make and a lot of fucking money, it will be okay if characters look alike. They all have key characteristics in WHO THEY ARE NOT WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE THAT MAKE THEM SPECIAL. And here I thought that was a common goal.
1. The idea of giant company like Disney using preexisting models for their main characters is not only laughable, but lazy and shameful.
1. Disney has money. They have a LOT of money. They have resources. They have talented people. And they clearly have enough time to create male characters with distinctive characteristics. The exact same should be true for female characters.
3. Oh look the “it doesn’t matter what they look like, it’s their personality that matters” argument. Movies are a VISUAL MEDIUM. Character design is rooted in figuring out who a character is and then basing the design off that. Good design should give an idea of a character’s personality before even watching the movie.
4. Playing the devil’s advocate only works if your argument makes sense and you understand what you’re arguing. Statements excusing Disney from lazy character design only shows your complete lack of understanding in how the animation industry works.
the hillrious thing here is everybody is acting like this is the new thing disnay is doing but they have been re using models and animation cycles FOR YEARS there’s a whole post on here somewhere dedicated to when disney re uses animation cycles in their older films. I don’t really understand why everyone is getting worked up about it now. All of their leading ladies have always looked very similar and if you don’t believe me just go back and look through the princesses’models for the past 70 years. Is the reason why everyone is so floored by this now is because you all are just now figuring this out?
My child sit down and let me explain you a thing or two
Disney didn’t WANT to reuse all that animation in their older films. They had to do that because they were BROKE. They had zero cash and had to cut major corners in production. As you can probably guess this is a problem they definitely don’t have now. They have enough money to do whatever they want, basically.
Yes, some of their leading ladies in the past look very similar. Wendy and Alice for one. But that doesn’t mean we can’t hold Disney to a higher standard now. Just because things happened in the past doesn’t mean they have to keep happening forever.
Let’s see…I’m not exactly sure what “ordinary” happiness would be, but I don’t think my current self is “abnormal.” What I am now is closest to my true self. That’s what I think. Haruka Tenoh, who fell in love with motor sports, can only live in this manner, no matter what she does. I have something more valuable than “ordinary” happiness.
like seriously their brain-to-body size ratio is equal to that of a chimpanzee
They vocalize anger, sadness, or happiness in response to things
they are scary smart at solving puzzles
some ravens stay with their mates until one of them dies
they can remember faces
SIDENOTE HERE BECAUSE HOLY SHIT. They did an experiment where these guys wore masks and some of them fucked with crows. Pretty soon the crows recognized the masks = douchebag. But the nice guys with masks they left alone. THEN, OH WE’RE NOT DONE, NO SIR crows that WEREN’T EVEN IN THE EXPERIMENT AND NEVER SAW THE MASK BEFORE knew about mask-dudes and attacked them on sight. THEY PASSED ON THE FUCKING INFORMATION TO THEIR CROW BUDDIES.
They remember places where crows were killed by farmers and change their migration patterns.
