Akin to an eagle
how Kalinga women are tough, proud, and dance like a soaring eagle who looks down on earth.
I did a demo and showed a certain pipeline in Adobe Flash and After Effects to a few folks. The tie downs for this one is really bad since I had to rush it. No model sheet was used, I basically just improvised for this one - so you’ll notice the character changing all the time. I decided to go with a “cowboy during a duel” excercise for this one.
1. Rough Pass - Rough poses with select breakdowns
2. Tie down - Tied down drawings with inbetween
3. Color - Color and after effects

more of my post spirit-possession azula. she is basically a crazy old lobotomized woman who lives in the woods as an eventually willing servant of a talking cat that only she can hear.
literally all started as a really roundabout way of getting azula/zhao lmao. ended up doing a bunch of exposition dump with zuko??
The Wolf of Wall Street's Margot Robbie is in talks to lead DreamWorks' live-action adaptation of the 1995 hit anime movie Ghost in the Shell, to be directed by Snow White and the Huntsman's Rupert Sanders.
….NO! NO! Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Seriously? Not even bothering to ATTEMPT to get an actress of Japanese descent to play the lead?
Oh, I see. It’s because the logic that “anime is racially ambiguous” or something? ‘Cause, after all, there’s no reason why a character called MOKOTO KUSANAGI be Japanese, right?
You know, this reminds me of that time they tried to make a live-action Evangelion and they were apparently going to change Asuka’s name and probably origin.
Like, really, can it be that hard to get a Japanese lead actress? Like, Rinko Kikuchi or someone, y’know, more appropriate?
Change “Evangelion” to “any anime or Asian media,” and “Asuka” to “every non-white character.” Because this is what happens literally every fucking time.
Also, yes, it really is that hard to get a lead who is Japanese when you are racist.
I feel that unless the story is solely based arround the fact that the character is japanese, race doesn’t matter. Like we were able to get a black spiderman! HOWEVER- If they turned away actresses aiming for the part SOLELY because they were japanese- then i can see that as being racist. As for the japanese names- I think they should stay true and actors/actresses should practice saying them perfectly.
Yeah, the thing is, “race shouldn’t matter” is a nice sentiment in theory but always seems to work out in practice as, “only cast white people.”
1) And while movie studios are perfectly happy to cast white actors for characters who are non-white, the reverse practically NEVER happens. This has been shown to be the case time and time again. Most of the time, studios don’t reject people of color for these parts, because those actors are never even considered. Plus, the majority of roles in Hollywood already go to white actors. Would it really be so awful to let Motoko be… I dunno, anything but white?
2) If you wanna know how “critical” her ethnicity is, you’d probably have to ask Masamune. But considering he named her Kusanagi, I would say that it’s probably sort of important. And why should being Japanese have to be “critical” to Mokoto’s character to warrant her being played by an actress who is Japanese (or even any east Asian descent)? Why should that have to be justified?
3) As for there being a black Spider-man… That is not an equivalent situation and it’s disingenuous to act as though it is. They didn’t change Peter Parker’s race. They created a whole new character who is black, (Miles Morales), and takes up the mantle of Spider-man after Parker.
So, let’s call this what it is: more racism in casting.
As someone who’s watched the ‘95 film and Stand Alone Complex, it is kinda ambiguous on whether or not it takes place in Japan. I guess you can say it pretty much does, though.
They literally mention several dozen times that they are Japanese I have no idea how you’re missing that.
Every single iteration of Ghost in the Shell has at the very least taken place in Asia and that was an incredibly important part of the setting (Hong Kong was chosen for the movie due to its architecture and cityscapes, Japan was chosen for the anime to put a specific origin point of Section 9 and also to give a full background story to the refugee plot in 2nd Gig, etc.)
Why is it that in order for a person of color to be casted for a character that is a person of color, we need a reason? “Oh, her race has to be important to the story!” “Oh, she looks ambiguous, why does it matter?” And yet we never hear these reasons thrown at white actors. It reinforces the idea that characters are white until proven minority which is, yes indeed, racist, whether they “meant it” or not.
The Major is Japanese. That’s it, end of story. There is no excuse for this. And you can bet your ass that this won’t be the only case of white washing in this movie.
been thinking about stories for these two for quite a while..
"fire and ice" character blurb:
-a pair of vigilantes/criminals, they don’t always get along, and they are quite unpredictable on who they kill.
-a man who can “burn” certain parts of people/witness’ memory (faces / evidences) by touching the victim’s temples, leaving scars in the process. people only see a blackened part when they try to remember. (a mind reader’s worst nightmare)
-no one knows what he hides behind those bandages.
-Undead lady trapped in magical ice body. Even barely alive, she still juggles her life as a businesswoman / assassin and a model (in demand because of her almost-“crystal” like skin)
-she kills with arsenal of different weapons (knives) made of ice that suits her taste, her killing method is untraceable. Only fire with magical properties can damage her body.
He is, however, perfectly willing to fuck with time and reality.
And also steal your infants.
He didn’t steal anything. She literally asked him to take the baby. Don’t make him the bad guy just because she was a shitty sister.
I think you are severely misinformed as to how baby ownership works.
It was not her baby to give.
David Bowie is unquestionably the villain.
Which do you think existed first, modern custody legislature, or the goblin king?
The girl was entrusted by her parents with the care and custody of the child. By the laws governing the goblin king and his transactions, the girl was the current rightful owner of the child and made a deal with the king to take the child. Perhaps you’re not familiar with english folklore. Fae have rules, they’re tricksters, they can be sneaky, but they never break the rules.
Slammin’ it down in the Labyrinth fandom tonight, kids.
What do you think existed first, the goblin king, or the desperate need to make girls into villains?
Sarah (which is the girl’s name, by the way) said something a bit mean-spirited after her father and stepmother dumped responsibility for her baby brother on her without asking her first. By the laws governing the goblin king and his transactions, the goblin king didn’t have to do shit; he’s the fucking king, and he took Toby out of pure spite, a desire to toy with her. Perhaps you’re not familiar with English folklore and its obsession with pretending women are always to blame. Fae have rules, they’re tricksters, they can be sneaky - and just because they never break the rules doesn’t mean that they’re not bad guys.
