It’s been a while since I posted any Chet ‘n Boyde stuff.
The top gal is Mallory, one of the newer gals to join the group. She was created on Jan 25th. After spending some time thinking over her character, I decided she’d be Pauly’s steady partner. I think they work well together.
Then we have a bundle of sketchbook doodles of the gals. The expression pages are pretty good examples of Pauly, Bobby and Carl’s personalities and quirks. Pauly’s sarcastic and grumpy nature, Bobby’s delicate and affectionate charm and Carl’s hot headed yet adorable spark.
Then I had to end it with a quick comic from last month inspired by a request to have Chet & Boyde in a “skunk situation.” Not what some might have immediately thought of. I’m calling the skunk fella Rick for now. I became pretty attached to him after designing him, so he’ll probably be one of the few male friends the main group hangs with. Also, this is a good example of how Chet is very quiet and shy with a lot of people, making Boyde approach them to ask the string bean’s questions. What dweebs.
god your facial expressions are just fabulous
I dig it.
Kill the idea that naivety is an unforgivable flaw but cynicism is just wisdom, murder it, chop it up and serve it for dinner, I don’t care, just end this bullshit idea that it’s better to hate than to love and better to rot in miserable bitter resignation than to hope for the best.
i’ll just be over here at the candlelight vigil for asexual dragon age players who already know we’re getting no representation and have quietly made peace with it for the 209723487th time
LET ME JUST SAY
IF YOU DON’T ALREADY THINK THIS WOMAN IS AN AMAZONIAN PRINCESS
YOU ARE DOING IT TOO WRONG FOR WORDS.
This scene was actually when I went from feeling more or less neutral on Joan to actively disliking her.
Because wow, that was patronizing.
I loved that scene in Elementary.
1) Firstly, because it immediately deconstructs the “hero throws and breaks something in frustration” cliche (Sherlock throwing a glass slide in HoB, anyone?) it might even be seen as a parody of that cliche.
2) Secondly, because the dynamic is different between a man and a woman than it would be between two women or two men, the visual of a man smashing something in a temper in front of a woman can be taken as threatening or borderline abusive. Joan Watson immediately shows that she is not intimidated by Holmes’ behavior.
3) Lastly? One of the running themes of Elementary is the deconstruction of Sherlock Holmes as the solitary, antisocial genius, and his becoming a member of a community. Holmes’ gifts are given their due respect, but no one in Elementary plays the game of Because Sherlock Holmes is a Bloody Genius He Can Do Whatever He Wants So There. When Sherlock goes after Moriarty (“M”), Captain Gregson suspends him. When Sherlock doesn’t want to talk about his addiction, Alfredo says “You’ve got to get over yourself.” And when Sherlock behaves like a spoiled child, Joan tells him “Use your words.”
You see Joan patronizing Sherlock. I see a member of Sherlock’s community teaching him how to behave like an adult member of that community.
Seriously, I love Joan because she doesn’t accept Sherlock’s bad behavior, and she’s not shy about showing him how ridiculous he is. It means she can be a partner and equal, not someone who is dragged along to marvel at Sherlock’s genius.
Part of what makes Elementary awesome is that because of Joan’s tough love and standing up to Sherlock - both characters actually develop in response to each other.
I will take that any day of the week over Holmes and Watson being the exact same people involved in a highly questionable friendship day in, day out.
happy earth day friends
this is…the best possible use of this particular gif.
Hello Queen of Genovia
okay but can you imagine like
a week after your truck gets stolen out of the goddamn mall parking lot, you get a knock on the door and there’s fucking Captain America standing there. Says he’s here about your goddamn truck. And for a moment you wonder if…
