painting warm up
Am I weird for thinking that this is Beta!Dirk Strider fixing Dr. Strangelove’s tie? I think it’s the cigarette.
Even though the Homestuck posts have mostly disappeared from my dash, I still see the occasional post about Dirk Strider pop up, where they address him by only his first name. It still weirds me out a little, to see my otherwise rare and uncommon name thrown around so casually, particularly in shipping posts (since the most common ship for DiStri is DirkJake), since I do not share his inclination towards dorky, bespectacled men.
i really like hemospectrum flip things, especially Hemostuck were the entire social order is switched; but Kanaya always seems to be stuck in the middle
so one day i was like WHAT IF
YOU TOOK THE HEMOSPECTRUM AND JUST
FLIPPED IT ON ITS SIDE
AND TOOK JADE BLOOD AND JUST
PULLED IT UP
Eridan is at the same level as Aradia here
Feferi is the once-a-generation, lowest-of-the-low mutant; Karkat is the much rarer, only-happened-like-a-handful-of-times-in-history mutant (his blood color is taken as an omen of immense change coming)
because of reasons, Jade bloods are in control (runnin around in the sun and junk)
Kanaya is the Heir Apparent, caretaker of the Mother Grub, head of the Jade Court in the Palace of the Sun (or something like that)
her weapon is a double sided chainsaw staff
she still loves fashion; here, her personal tastes dictate the taste of the court, and by extension influence the current generation
HOLY FUCK THIS IS FUN
i’m gonna draw more of her dresses, and then the other trolls :D
So I’m seeing this post going around with all these people upset that the tarot deck and all the official art in general has all the Homestuck characters as white all the time, and I while I understand the anger over POC not being represented in the comic
I don’t think
Oh. That changed my take on him from clueless white dude with shitty bullshit backpedal story to actively racist fuck face.
Welp.Boost the FUCK out of this because I hate seeing posts thanking Hussie for homestuck when he hasn’t done shit.
Y’all can hate him for making dumb racist comics in the past, that’s your perogative, but it doesn’t erase the fact that he created Homestuck, and everything else on mspaintadventures.com.
A lot of people on tumblr suck Jhonen Vasquez’s dick for creating Invader Zim, but it doesn’t invalidate the often offensive, goth wank-fest that was Johnny the Homicidal Maniac, Meanwhile…, and True Tales of Human Drama.
The fact is, there are a lot of creators who make problematic, dumb shit while working their way up to their big projects. Oftentimes they grow as artists and as people, and their newer projects are better in terms of…well pretty much everything. Obviously, their old shitty comics still exist, but if everyone was judged by dumb shit they did years ago, pretty much no one would be able to enjoy anything ever, because everyone would be pissed off and hung up on the past.
So yeah, did Andrew Hussie make some dumb, racist comics before Homestuck? Sure. It doesn’t mean he’s a bad person in the present day, nor does it invalidate his accomplishments since the establishment of mspaintadventures.com.
It’s probably already been done, but I dreamt of a way Homestuck could end. I’m on mobile, so it can’t go under a cut.
Anyway, I dreamed that John and the other God Tier players combined and made creative use of their powers to locate and summon Caliborn’s severed leg, and Calliope’s dead Dreamself. They then use a combination of the Life Ring and Feferi and Jane’s revival powers to bring Calliope back to life, and then Dave and Aradia’s time powers to age her to maturity.
i think the way terezi “sees” is pretty cool
People usually thinks that she is completely blind. Thanks for posting this.
terezi has better vision than me
She IS completely blind. Her eyes (and whatever passes for optic nerves in trolls) were completely burned out after being exposed to the Alternian sun. Her senses of taste and smell, for the purposes of the comic, are depicted visually.
It’s been a long time since Cascade, Homestuck. But now that this is finally finished, it’s time to release the new Flare remix!
This song has almost every musical element of the original Flare sampled and used in a new way, along with lots of new additions and a gritty EDM style of production. I wrote the original song a long time ago, and since then I’ve grown dissatisfied with it in some ways. How better to improve on it than with a remix?
For track art I talked to my girlfriend Andarix, who has been doing crest design commission lately. She made one for me featuring the Green Sun and the chain of Derse for me, and I don’t think it could have turned out more awesomely!
I’m afraid you can’t buy or download this song yet, but it will definitely be available on the next official Homestuck album release.
And I want to give a special thanks to my patrons on Patreon. Without you guys, I would have never have had the resources to make this remix!
