When I say people want to see more diversity in stories, no, I really don’t mean different stories about straight white dudes. I really, really don’t mean that at all. This isn’t about types of stories being told. This is specifically about people. I’m not letting you make this about something else. You are not hijacking this message to make sure we’re still talking about straight white dudes.
The saga continues:
This made me actually sputter with frustration. Saliva exited my mouth. Why do you think your opinion SHOULD matter on this subject? Why should your opinion be given the same weight over people who are actually living these experiences? Especially when my original point was about how minorities rarely get to tell their own stories. I’ve been really patient with him but he’s taken up way too much of my time and he’s still missing the point like he’s trying to actively avoid it.
Hey, fellow straight, cis, white dudes, learn when to shut the fuck up.
Isn’t having our stories told in every form of media almost all of the time enough? Nobody needs to hear our side. They’ve fucking heard it.

WIP (testing colour combinations) for a UNA the BLADE (http://unatheblade.tumblr.com/) fan comic (totally unsanctioned, for fun and practice).
The four-page story should be finished tomorrow. I’ll post the final thing then.
Please check the Una the Blade project. There’s a bunch of good artists doing good things over there - and Steve LeCouilliard, the man behind the project is real nice too!)
So excited for this!

A glorious fuck-ton of sensual/sexy kissing references (per request).
Just as a tip; notice how the lips either fit one on top of the other (making a zig zag from the side view) or they press against each other to compress the typical lip shape. (Sorry, I tried! This was a bitch to compile; there are no good kissing references out there. I’m still looking. If I find any more, I’ll post ‘em. Fuck; I’m done for the day.)
[NOTICE: The bottom three images are GIFs. Wait for them to load.]
For future reference…

‘SMUT PEDDLER’ EDITOR SPIKE TROTMAN ON BREAKING $80,000 IN FIVE DAYS
ComicsAlliance: I guess it’s difficult to ask “why do you think it’s a success,” because “people on the Internet like porn” is not really a groundbreaking revelation.
Spike Trotman: You know what? I get that a lot. I’m very excited about Smut Peddler, it’s doing very well, I freak out about it to my friends, and I get a lot of “well, it’s porn.” I do agree to a certain level that’s going to have a certain influence, but there are plenty of pornographic Kickstarters or kickstarters with adult content that don’t make their goal. There are Kickstarters with adult content that fail miserably. It’s not just by virtue of being porn that it’s succeeding. I’ve seen projects with adult content just crater, and I’ve had projects that have nothing to do with porn — I did Poorcraft and Sleep of Reason, and those more than doubled their goal. Those didn’t have any boobs or weiners or anything in them, so I’m not really willing to accept that “well, it’s porn” is the be-all and end-all of Smut Peddler’s success.
Maybe I’d be willing to budge for “well, it’s good porn.” I like to think so, anyway.
