The Lara-Su Chronicles and Ken Penders topic - READ PAGE 164, POST 4096

Recommended Posts

If the Director and Producers of the @SonicMovie think Sonic's teeth only problem, they are sadly mistaken. I don't see the story having anything close to the emotional core that the @DetPikachuMovie displays in its trailers.

This is only the first trailer and Detective Pikachu didn’t indicate any emotional aspects until this trailer.

I actually don't disagree with Ken's post, and am hard pressed to think the Sonic movie will have an emotional core.

At the same time, Ken bringing up Movie Sonic's horrible individually rendered teeth immediately reminded me of his Comic-con art. The way Ken shapes these characters makes them look hideous in much the same way as Movie Sonic. They're lumpy with semi-realistic musculature, and have faces that are too human. They are simpatico.

Yeah Ken has no right to criticize about the movie when his work is not much better

So to recap, the last page saw a sudden boost in activity via:

  • People offering to buy Mr. Penders' characters
  • Sonic allegedly not being made for kids initially and what that can mean to a region
  • Ben Hurst not being involved with Sonic Armageddon
  • SEGA not doing much with the characters
  • The movie lacking an emotional core
  • A fan being called lazy for not looking for something

I wouldn't say I care immensely but they're honestly pretty gross to look at, in the same way I think Sonic having visible lumpy kneecaps and calves is nightmare fuel.

Ken's own art happens to capture this uncanny valley vibe just as effectively. His 3D renders of Lara-Su characters are burned into my brain.

Tragically that's a pretty big example of the kettle calling the pot black, given that Penders own work is pretty barren in that regard. You and I both know that Penders couldn't identify an 'emotional core' if it got up and slapped him in the face. 

I still find it astounding though that he's been complaining about the film 'stealing' his style, without seeming to realize that that says nothing good about his own work or its lack of appeal given the incredible backlash the film's Sonic design provoked.

The man who thought enough of a pitch for a Sonic movie was badly written dialogue, 2000s handheld camera footage in the pitch of night, awful photoshop skills, and a PowerPoint presentation basically saying “oh yea, Sonic is big” isn’t exactly in the position to comment on knowing how movies should be made, especially in regards to Ben Hurst who did a successful show, compared to the man who killed the comic book for years.

For anyone curious about this, and wants a really good description of this whole debacle, for the record - it turns out Patmac happened to make a video based on cancelled movie pitches, including Armageddon. It has a very nice sum-up of the scummy shit Penders got up to (basically - selling Hurst out by claiming he was trying to take over SEGA's western control of Sonic through SatAM and killing a SatAM revival plan to get his pitch through the door - I cannot remember if this was the case or not) and how bad the pitch was in general.

The whole video is worth a watch, but if you're only interested in Penders - it begins at 13:00.

Ken can’t stop lying about his role

also I’m afraid on what his search history it is either something controversial or himself

Aah, alrighty, you know how it was mentioned that this is not the place to post every little thing Ken says/does, and things generally need to be kept within the frame of his time on Archie or his current project? This is outside the purview. I'm not trying to be a killjoy, but mentioning Ken banning someone isn't really what this thread is for.

Here's a couple of things on topic - 

A little bit of info on why he created Nic the Weasel 

 

And, shockingly, something related to TLSC that I didn't know about, a new character!

 

 

 

 

Another Echidna, how quaint. At least compared to the 8th of last month... This really is Geoffrey St. John Chronicles at this point, isn't it?

The only reason he kept Nack in the book was so he could create another clone of a SEGA character? What?

It gave him reason to create a sister who for all intents and purposes is essentially a genderbent clone of her brother? You know, the more this guy reveals his thought process, the more I wonder if his incessant need to seemingly pile relatives on to various characters was simply his way of trying to instantly give those characters some kind of relevancy without having to build them up.

It was either going to be the Geoffrey St. John Chronicles or the K'nox Chronicles in truth, despite the given title. Though at this point it really does seem like he'd rather be writing about ephebophile skunk than his supposed 'masterpiece'.
