artist alley

Journal Entry: Tue Sep 17, 2013, 11:06 AM
So it turns out I'm going to be doing artist alley at both Anime LA 2014 and Anime Expo 2014!

I'll probably be selling some rotg, httyd, lok, loz, snk, free, and pokemon fanart. If there's any art piece in particular that you would like to see there, please let me know!!! I'll be updating this journal periodically with pieces that I'll be selling and where my table will be and such.

What is your response to the "negative" aspects some people have found in Dragons 2 like: 
Valka not being a well developed enough character, she's excellently nuanced, with her own strengths and flaws that are open to interpretation (as noted above), but her own personal character arc gets overturned in favour of Hiccup's own. Her efforts become nothing more than meaning to talk Hiccup out of his darkest hour. I say that the movie does revolve around her actions, in the sense that none of the characters would be where they are if it weren't for her. Ultimately though, she is a Lady of Peace rather than a Lady of War, she has the soul of a dragon but she is not a leader, when the Alpha Bewilderbeast appears she bows down to it. She fights to free the dragons but could not do what Hiccup did and convince Berk to come to peace with them, without her hiccup may not tried to return to Berk and mend his bond with toothless . She may not be in the spotlight for long , but her role is of paramount importance. 

Others complain that Astird went to the sidelines this film. I can see what their getting at but if you watch the series (and you should ) like me you'll see that while the series is about Hiccup and toothless' relationship to the rest of their ever growing world and people around them, the movies are about Hiccup and toothless' relationship to the Haddock family. What we do see of Astird is nice, t
here is no real nervousness or hesitation between there relationship anymore, and they don't even need to act outright romantic for one to see how in love they are. Its hard to explain but one gets the sense they are "meant to be together" when watching them that wasn't really present before, a subtle way of showing how their relationship has matured.To put it simple terms, they're obviously in love without needing to be obvious about being in love.The fact is there's no one moment, outside of the explicit moments (the various kisses, particularly) that speak to their romantic inclination. It's the many small moments between the two that slowly reveals how much they love each other without ever making a big scene out of it. I for one was happy to see that. I'm not the kind of guy that's gonna be a all lovey dovey to my girlfriend ( if i get one) , saying i love you every day, snuggling whenever, I'll show her moments of romance when the time really calls for it, cause if your too romantic you're not in love with a person  you're in love with the concept of love . These two don't need to proclaim their love to everyone because as long as they themselves  can see it their happy.
 
 Drago is another complaint . Some say he wasn't used to his full potential , we only get a brief scene of explanation by Stoick and some insight on his history, but not enough to fully develop him as a character. I was fine with how they used Drago. Time and your audiences attention span is short, if you drabble on for to long they'll get bored.  We could've gone into Drago's back story more but that might've taken too long and felt unnecessary . By that logic the Red Death didn't get much characterization either. We needed to see why Drago was such so feared and how evil he was and in that respect i think the film succeeded. Some of the odder complaints are that he's kind of narmy (when a dramatic moment fails),sounds like cookie monster or animal, oh and get this , one girl said Drago bears similarities to Nazi propaganda posters, where do you get this from? I think some people just over analyze things. 

One reviewer on a feminist blog reelgirl.com/?s=httyd&subm… said that Dragons like plenty of other films sidelined female characters while the male was the lead cause "even in fantasy films women being equal is still a thing of myth". Personally I've never noticed as to whether or not a character , like Astrid, gets treatment because of their gender I've always seen her as a equal character on par with Hiccup. See also wrote the she wished Big hero 6 should've starred a female robot, which is nuts because as a robot Baymax has no biological gender, he's only male because we associate his voice and appearance as male . She also said she didn't like how Honey Lemon was still "pink is feminine"

One reviewer said everyone in the film was making idiotic decisions, and Hiccup has rose tinted glasses that could've killed them all, but I don't think there where any rationally stupid decisions in the film. Hiccup believes that he can reason with Drago but he learns that not everyone can be reasoned with and he grows as a character ready to be a chief. The only flaw i can see with this film is that it doesn't have that special forbidden friendship like scene that made the first film so special. Flying with mother comes close but its not the same. What do you think of all the issues I've posted for you ?
