My wife is a huge fan of Alex Ahad`s fantastic character designs with Stanley Whitefin being her favorite. So I decided to do an unofficial animation for her of Stanley firing “something akin to Iron Man’s Proton Cannon” as indicated on Labzero’s character concept page. In keeping with the science shark motif, I designed this particular cannon to be powered by vicious genetically engineered electric eels. This is my first post on Tumblr so I hope someone finds my animation amusing.
After seeing WayForward’s new amazingly cute design of Shantae for their successfully Kickstarted game, Shantae: Half Genie Hero, I was compelled to do an animation of her. She is so adorable! I tried my best to do her justice.
My first fan animation of Wayforward’s little dancing Genie was so well received that I decided to try animating her again. Shantae is a really fun character and I can’t wait to play her new game!
Well, the past few weeks have been pretty crazy, haven’t they? I’ve been trying to put together this statement for months - even before Gamergate started up. The need for this statement has only increased as the weeks have gone on so I’m glad for finally getting the opportunity to talk about it…
A silent protest in Love Park, downtown Philadelphia orchestrated by performance artists protesting the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson. The onslaught of passerby’s wanting to take photos with the statue exemplifies the disconnect in American society. Simply frame out the dead body, and it doesn’t exist.
Here are some observations by one of the artists involved in the event:
I don’t know who any of these folks are.
They were tourists I presume.
But I heard most of what everything they said. A few lines in particular stood out. There’s one guy not featured in the photos. His friends were trying to get him to join the picture but he couldn’t take his eyes off the body.
"Something about this doesn’t feel right. I’m going to sit this one out, guys." "Com’on man… he’s already dead."
There were a billion little quips I heard today. Some broke my heart. Some restored my faith in humanity. There was an older white couple who wanted to take a picture under the statue.
The older gentleman: “Why do they have to always have to shove their politics down our throats.” Older woman: “They’re black kids, honey. They don’t have anything better to do.”
One woman even stepped over the body to get her picture. But as luck would have it the wind blew the caution tape and it got tangle around her foot. She had to stop and take the tape off. She still took her photo.
There was a guy who yelled at us… “We need more dead like them. Yay for the white man!”
"One young guy just cried and then gave me a hug and said ‘thank you. It’s nice to know SOMEBODY sees me.’
