“It’s Been An Adventure, Mr. Fredricksen.”
“Adventure Is Out There!”
Someone asked me to post these two companion pieces together so it was easier to reblog them.

Welcome! Sorry for the mess.
Making something look normal or common is less about terminology or how you initially describe it and more about how you include it. If you want hover vehicles to be seen as a normal part of the world, show them in everyday situations: kids on their way to school who are racing each other on hoverboards, a hover-scooter lying on someone’s lawn while it recharges on a faded cord, special parking for hovercars built into the parking lots alongside bike racks/”normal” car spaces/etc. Only give it enough special treatment in description to make sure the audience knows what it is. Once it has been established, use it as a facet of the world rather than the center of attention. It’s a normal part of the world and does not get special attention anymore (or ever, depending on how you handle exposition).

WASH because I wanted to make a gorram photoset of Wash
Toying around with ideas for a T-shirt for my daughter. The official Disney princess shirts for little girls irk me slightly. I can deal with how they’re fluorescent pink and sparkly but not with how the princesses on shirts are always either limited to 1-5 of them or they’re stuffed in so that some are hidden behind others. Not to mention they are always depicted in their fancy ballgowns and their superficial beauty and wealth is glamorised (like the world’s not bombarding little girls enough with that crap already -although I have to give exception here to Merida and of course Pocahontas who doesn’t have a fancy dress as such but then she’s usually stuffed to the back line in group images or left out altogether so meh) while other more valuable princess traits like kindness, perseverance, courage, generosity, thirst for knowledge etc. are for the most part ignored.

Another doodle. Not a fan of Wonder Woman but last night I dreamt of Korra wearing that outfit and I thought it looked really cool.

P.S. I think Beyonce’s hips are starting to heavily influence how I draw women.
Merrill may be all kittens and puppies and rainbows on the surface but she has a heart of fucking steel when it comes down to it——stronger than steel, actually. Because as resolute as she is in her own goals, she will also absolutely and unconditionally love people who hate her/are annoyed by her/are terrified of her.
You can hate her and tell her everything she wants to do is wrong and she will still care about you and want to see you safe and happy she is the sweetest but also her heart is capable of bearing the weight of many sorrows and that takes an incredible amount of strength and she really needs to be appreciated for it.
