I was jealous at first in game, because I wanted Joker for my shep BV But gosh darn it they were just too cute they grew on me regardless.
Invader Zim has a more distinct style, so I decided to go for that. Plus, I wanted to since I’ve never tried to draw in its style before :>
ashikai said: Diversity is awesome, but I think just the fact that female representation is so low is the reason for why you only get one “type.” I think the line of thought is like “Well, if I’m gonna only have one female, I better make her awesome.” *sigh*
I agree, but I think that’s partly the cause AND the effect. I think one of the reasons there are so few female characters is because people are reluctant to write them in other ways. They only have very few women they can write, because there’s so very few different female characters that media has shown them in comparison to men, and so, they only have very few women in their work.
I was reading an article about why someone hates a certain film… And amongst all of their intelligent points, they said that a big problem with it was that it doesn’t have strong female characters. That the women were weak and selfish and dumb; not strong at all.
I’m so tired of the whole ‘we need strong female characters’ thing. It’s like women have something they need to PROVE. The men will all be morons rolling around being fun idiots, meanwhile the girls will be smart, attractive, one upping the foolish men, and when she makes a joke she does it in a cool biting way that puts the men down. Because hell, we don’t want to be sexist, let’s have strong female characters!
I hate that. Literally strong and brilliant female characters are fine but there’s so damn many. And we don’t like them, all they do is get in the way of the boys’ fun and be horrifically boring. That may be a strong woman, but sure as hell doesn’t guarantee it to be a strong character.
Little girls don’t need perfect role model after perfect role model. I think they need a few more idiots. I think little BOYS need a few more idiot, selfish female characters, the kind of person that’s a real human, not just some majestic thing on a pedestal. Some bizarre and mysterious, yet atrociously unfunny thing that they don’t understand and should resent.
This is probably obvious to a lot of people and nothing new, but from what I read it looks like it’s not nearly obvious enough to plenty. A little rant makes me feel better.
I like this game, nice suggestion =) I’m not nearly this cool though btw BV But everyone in this game is cool.
Concept art for the new comic I’ll be starting, most likely next year… Quite looking forward to it. About a young man and very many curses.
There has only been five female characters comfirmed playable compared to fifteen male characters.
I’m amazed at those exact numbers because 33% is the point where men will start thinking there’s a majority of women in a group.
