I showed this picture of an officially licensed manga cover to my mom, and she just went "NO! >:V" and walked out of the room.
you ever stumble across a manga costume design that is so MUCH that you just stare hollow-eyed into the distance?
sensitive content: butt
because my Patreon-backers have been absolute sweethearts for the last few days of chaos, I've opened up my December character-design poll to the public.

I don't want to deal with thiiiiis
a bunch of people are going 'oh, just set up your own subscription thing via your site, using a middle man is stupid' and I just want to SCREAM
the reason I use Patreon is so that THEY deal with all the tiring legwork and genuinely costly stuff like EU tax-law bullshit like VATMOSS
tfw you can't tell if the feeling in the pit of your stomach is lingering aftershocks of stomach flu, nerves, or just anxiety over capitalism
I emailed #patreon about how I, as a creator, felt about their horrible new change the other day 🙃 Just got a reply 🙃 addressed to a patron, not a creator 🙃

hey #patreon users, please consider going to https://patreon.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new and filling out a comment about the new fee system if you have strong feelings about them! if you're unhappy, tell them why; if you wish there were other options, tell them what you want those options to be. users of a platform deserve to be heard.
(there are a bunch of posts about the changes under the patreon tag here if you need to get caught upt)
I sent a customer support request to Patreon asking them to reconsider the change. I suggest you do the same if you care.
It's Wednesday and I'm pretending to build a snow-dog in D&D while the rest of the party has a snowball fight in the background
10/10, would make a snow-dog again
let's just say the past few weeks/months really makes my constant worry of "is it professional to put a :) at the end of this sentence?" and "should I address this person by first name, or is that too familiar" look absolutely ridiculous.
Is It Okay To Hug This Person, a handy field guide for the worried:
step one: spread arms slightly
step two: say "are hugs okay?"
step three: if yes, commence hug! if no, say "okay!" and drop it
step four: continue social encounter as normal
Me: I should do this side-comic in black and white! it'll be so much faster!
Also me: *conveniently forgets I have very little practise working in black and white*
gamer bros exhaust me
not gonna spend any more energy on them today. I have comics to draw.
