Adventures in the life of a quiet fanboy named Dirk. Sometimes I like to make art (watercolors or oil pastels) which I'll post here, but mostly this blog is for reblogging stuff I think is cool/funny/interesting, and the occasional essay about the things I think about.

OKAY SO

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

like so

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)

image

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)

image

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

[racism] why andrew hussie is a bag of shit

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

you want

to trust

Andrew Hussie

with representing

POC

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.

Except…create Homestuck?

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.

So, I had a dream this morning…

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!

*sigh*

Here I was getting all excited about it, but my panel “Homestuck: Let Me Tell You About It” didn’t make it onto the CONvergence 2014 schedule. They’ve got a panel for pretty much every other subject, but apparently a Homestuck discussion panel didn’t make the cut.

Like…I’m sure it’ll come up in a webcomic panel, but really, Homestuck is too big for just a passing mention in a panel about webcomics as a general topic.

I’m disappointed. The Homestuck panel was kind of a big deal for me, with Homestuck gaining more and more presence at CON every year, I was kind of hoping to use the panel as a vehicle to introduce more people to the comic.

I’d send an e-mail to the programming people asking why, but I know damn well that all it would get me is an unsatisfying canned response, that ultimately doesn’t do me any good.

I want Homestuck to get exposure that doesn’t involve a crowd of children in gray facepaint at anime conventions. Not that there’s anything wrong with those panels, but there’s more to the Homestuck fandom than just that section of it.
