    Sunwalker reacted to Monkey Destruction Switch in Females in the Sonic Fandom   
    Personally, I've never seen the Sonic fandom as having less female members than male members, really. But especially after reading this, I can see better how some might come to that misconception. Probably a lot of it just depends on the assumptions people make, or the places they're looking. But the fact that at least a bit of it could have to do with females wanting to avoid harassment is an ugly reminder of how awful and ugly the human race can be. Some people are just jerks.
    There are plenty of female Sonic fans if you know where to look - like shadowhunt said, creating fanart, crafting fanfictions, posting on Tumblr, and much more. It kind of weirds me out that some could come to the conclusion that there just are no visible female Sonic fans, but it may be because of frequenting different circles. Overall, I'm not the most active fandom member, but the places I do go house an ample supply of female fans.
    And...well, OK, this is just going further off-topic, I guess, but I feel like I want to address the whole issue about males' responsibility for their actions, because being a rather conservative Christian, I hear this kind of argument of women being responsible for men's thoughts and actions a LOT in the circles I frequent, and I'm really sick and tired of it. It's just utter garbage which has no basis in our faith (or anything) whatsoever. If someone thinks or does something wrong, it's their own freaking fault. It's absolutely ridiculous to claim that half the blame for YOUR wrongdoing goes to the person whom you wronged. And I say this as a person who believes in exercising modesty. I'm not doing it because men can't control themselves, I'm doing it as a reflection of my own beliefs about what I believe the proper context of sexuality is.
    Even if some men have a hard time controlling their emotions, at the end of the day, it's still their own responsibility. No one else can do it for them, and no one else should be expected to do it for them. The very idea is ridiculous and should be considered extremely demeaning to men.
    I'm sorry if I'm getting further off-topic, I guess maybe I needed to vent or something, since I hear this sort of garbage a lot in my ideological and cultural context.

    Sunwalker reacted to Monkey Destruction Switch in Anyone out there with shameful Sonic-related secrets?   
    I guess never having finished a Sonic game other than Sonic R and Sonic the Fighters would be considered shameful to most...but I'm really pretty casual about my gaming, and growing up I didn't have much incentive as I could just look over my sister's shoulder at the cutscenes and then replay the levels on her user.
    Also, have you ever felt like ripping your eyeballs out? Well, you will now!

    I think that's enough agony for now, though I have more. Thankfully I never posted these anywhere =D

    I'll just say this : I've recieved a payment from Ken just a few minutes ago, for the translation I provided for the first page. I should get the second page soon.

    What's this? He actually listened to critique without counter-arguments? Or did I just miss those?

    hah good luck i speak spanish!
    there is a big context mistake on the first orange square dialogue:
    "Bienvenidos al Bnker, el centro del sistema nerviosodel aparato de seguridad protegiendo el reino"
    "Bnker" maybe its Bunker XD
    sistema nervioso?  that means literaly  "nervous system"  haha i hope he didn't mean they are inside of a real brain XD
    "aparato"   i don't really think they mean "device"..  i'm sure there is other word for what he mean...
    ----so accourding to this  the correct spanish translation would be..
    "Bienvenidos al Bunker; Centro neurálgico del equipo de seguridad; protegiendo al Reino"
    the other dialogues have some little mistakes of the  "o" and some words has no "a" on it..
    just like  "MeteorolÚgico" ---Meteorológico   or "Report-ndose" ---..Reportandose   or SeÓor its Señor
    now i tell you.. if he used Google translate.. he didn't read the meanings of each word which appears down the translation..... because there is more synonyms accourding to the context of his story.. heheh

    "What in the Infernal Abyss"
    So that's how you say What the Hell in American censorship language.
    Also that demon is suffering some major depression once the whole thing is disrupted.

    I feel really bad for Ian about this state of this crossover. And it's been said but there's no heart in this crossover, but if I remember correctly the first one had issues in the middle also. The last act is where it'll make this or break this. Here's hoping it makes it worth the lackluster middle we have this time.

    As far as we know, he has no current job, his wife is a lawyer and pays for everything.
    And Ken's already fairly good at sketching (before the forum got wiped we talked about some charity sketches he did of characters that weren't his, and aside from a very wonky looking Anna, they weren't bad). I think his problem is more ugly designing and terrible coloring and shading.

    Thanks for letting us know, Jason.
     
    I wish I had been at the con so I could have seen the app. I'm very interested in it since apparently he's learned coding to make it himself? If I'm remembering correctly, that is.

    For those who don't want to watch the video, here's some of the highlights Jason's video showed.
    -First image of Ryu, Chun-Li, Guile. and Ken in Worlds Unite
    -Discussion on Archie Sonic, 25th anniversary and the landmark 275 issue.
    -Shows off the #275 Variants
    -#275 is confirmed to be double size and is going to contain the FCBD issue.
    -Panel from #276 is shown off.
    I'll edit later with more details.
    -Starting from #276, New issues are going to have split up stories. 10 pages from one story from one artist, 10 pages from another story from another artist (Which is going to suck IMO)
     
    -We get concept art of the new Naugus and Lupe designs.
    -Naugus will be returning at some point after Worlds Unite
    (Continued on next page with Sonic Universe stuff.)

    On an entirely different note, scrounged this out of 4chan;

    Actually, his characters resembling SEGA-style ones is probably one of the biggest ways he can draw anyone in; people associating him with Sonic tends to be most of the reason why anyone has ever cared about him to begin with, after all.
    Also, I honestly wouldn't be too surprised if the Lara-Su Chronicles booth got a better response "in the flesh" than it does over the internet. They don't know Penders' background or jerky and egotistical stuff he's said in the past, and people might be more forgiving of the artwork's general badness and stuff like that because they might perceive Penders as being a "man with a dream", and they might instinctively want to support him. Plus, there's the huge fact that, when a person is right there as opposed to over the internet, you're much less inclined to be critical.

    Cool beans, thanks for the heads up.
    So far they seem to have seen one interesting new thing. Going to touch it up a bit to make it clearer for myself, you won't see the clear touch-up.
     
    Edit: Here's the pic in question;

    Still can't glean too much but I've got the gist of it; it's a panel from #276, with Rotor and Sonic seeming to be fighting off Badniks and Egg Army grunts, one in particular being beaten up. The image also has Chip and a Penguinator, nothing too spoilery about it.
    The other panel image is of the #275 variants, nothing new there.

    I agree with Disonoid that there's nothing wrong with using stock art for merchandise, it happens all the time. But this new product is still really bad design-wise. Lara-Su is awkwardly shoved into that corner, leaving a huge chunk of empty black space over her head. It feels like it would've looked much better if she was just positioned a little higher. Plus, the entire thing is extremely bland, and there's no getting past the ugliness of the artwork. It could be worse, but it's still pretty darn bad.

    I know I probably sound like I'm defending Penders too much lately...but thinking about it a bit, is it really fair to be against him reusing art?
     
    In books themselves, yeah, it'd be bad, but so far as promotional stuff goes, it doesn't seem that uncommon for that to be done, at least from what I've seen.
     
    Maybe there's this general thing against using it for comic related things I don't know about.
