I just watched this, hypnotized, for a good minute.
this was shown at sigraph. my entire art department at my old job watched together.
HARU’S PARENTS ARE SO BEAUTIFUL
ok but where have these two been for two whole seasons
#how obvious is it tho that haruka’s parents are pretty neglectful? #it’s not just that our protagonist’s parents haven’t shown up #but that they’ve been actively mentioned as absent #they’ve been called ‘free spirits’ who were implied to be only rarely home from their travels #over two school years and one summer in which we’ve seen inside haruka’s house many times #they’ve NEVER been home #plus I know a lot of people haven’t read High Speed but #Haruka mentioned that he went straight to the swim club after school because he didn’t like being home alone #he was in elementary school and his parents left him alone every single day #I mean he’s never seemed to have financial troubles or anything #but they’ve probably just been so emotionally absent his whole life#and I know he’s a fairly independent person #but I can’t help but question if he was just forced to be like that from an early age #and how much it’s stunted his emotional development and contributed to his depression in this past season #oh I made myself sad
im putting my tags here bc this is important
There’s always at least one person whenever I post a G1 joke who doesn’t believe me and thinks I’m making stuff up, or that I’m just taking things out of context to make it strange. To prove that I am not doing that, I decided to draw an entire episode. All of this actually happens, and I didn’t even include Starscream’s amazing skill to create threads out of crunched gold and Rumble’s horrible one-liners.
Sorry for the crappy drawings, I didn’t want to add shadows and lights because I’ve been spending way too much time on this anyway.
This is the G1 Season 2 episode “A Decepticon raider in King Arthur’s Court” and it’s one of the most glorious episodes of anything ever. Go watch it if you don’t believe me.
ok, so when i was about 11 years old i had these magical girl characters that were ripoffs of the Sailor Senshi (top left picture). i think this one’s name was Sakura (lol) she was the ‘fire’ member (loll)
i found that drawing again in 2004 and decided to re-draw it to show how much i had improved…and then for some reason it showed up again every 3 years about, so i’d do it again.
when i was a kid i’d be like “damn … how do those guys draw those ruffly sailor skirts?” and the answer is that you have to be a million years old to learn how to do it. never stop improving kids. i still have such a long way to go…….. /crumbles into dust, is swept away by the wind
When did doing something ‘like a girl’ become an insult?
The part that gets me is at the end of the commercial, when they ask one of the first ladies if she had a chance to do her demonstration of “running like a girl” over again, what would she do differently and she says, “I would run like myself.” I legit cried.
