The Roots - Things Fall Apart
Finally after months of struggling, I’ve finally come to a conclusion of these character designs for the motivational book of raising children (and dealing with their bad habits). God help me character designing can be fun AND frustrating at the same time.
I finally got it right because I’ve been creating them wrong from the start, if you’re in my house right now I’d show you over 40 papers on completely different papers on designing them. From being ‘complete angels’ to ‘little monsters’. But nothing worked out. I was wrong. I suddenly realize that even though kids can be annoying and be a menace, but that’s what they are, kids. Kids make mistakes and a lot of them, too. But that doesn’t mean that they’re evil. They just don’t know a lot about manners yet. From that point on, they popped up and I instantly fell in love with them.
There’s another batch of boys but I just wanted to share this sketch I made.
My finished commission for gophersrus:

The Adventures of Prince Achmen.
The oldest surviving animated film in history.
Nonono, you don’t understand how AWESOME this movie is
because it’s not done by a big production firm, or someone with a name as big as Walt Disney, no
the writer and “mind” behind this film was a WOMAN
yes, my dear tumblr peeps, the very first trick animator in the world was a young German woman who had an idea, and enough friends and time to make a feature-length animated film. And it took her three years
because the way this movie (and some shorter works she actually did before Die Abenteuer des Prinzen Achmed) are done is really, really complex. You see those leaves, and the hair of the figures? Yes.
That’s hand-cut paper.
Lotte Reiniger - that’s her name, my friends - always loved the art beind the Chinese shadow puppetry, and after she heard a lecture by Paul Wegener (famous vor the early movies Der Golem and Der Student von Prag) about the possibilites of animated movies, she wanted to combine these two things.
And guys, how she combined it…
Most of the puppets and scenerey she made all by herself. Her friends set up a special table that was lighted from underneath, and in the later movies she would even change the colours of the background mid-scene to change the atmosphere. Above it was a camera, shooting photos of the scenes that she moved milimetre for milimetre for those 16 pictures per second she needed for her movie.
Which makes Die Abenteuer von Prinz Achmed not only the first animated feature-length movie, but also the first stop-motion movie.
I feel the wind

Scorpion mommy needs a lot of attention to take care of her babies because their exoskeletons are still soft and wobbly, and sometimes it’s confusing to manage all those limbs at once.
Please full view, it’s detailed.

She didn’t like these two women because they talked to her like she was stupid. And tried to fuck her. Now she’s hadn’t explored that before. She’s mad cool with lesbians. Just not these ignorant ass women. So she wants revenge. & on some next level shit, turns their house into a brothel.
Maya Angelou ran a fucking brothel, b. To teach niggas a lesson. Just cause.
"And ladies you decided in the beginning that you were going to screw me one way or the other. Look at us now. Who did the screwing?" (Angelou, 57)
