i KNOW i’m just beating a long-dead horse by doing this but for god’s sake disney
fyi only superficial things were changed in the edit (hair, eyelash length, freckles, skin tone) the actual model wasn’t changed at all
to be clear: she photoshopped anna’s hair onto hiro’s mom face. a lot of people in reblogs seem to think that the one on the right is literally anna and trying to find miniscule, non-existant differences… which sort of proves the point? that a picture of a different character can be mistaken for anna so easily with just a hairstyle change and that people will still defend the design choice to the death rather than admit the similarities… sheeesh.
How about this. You go to Pixar studio, and you tell them to change it. or get a job there and do it yourself, OH WAIT
YOU CAN’T! Cause you’re just someone bitching on the internet, and businesses don’t care about people bitching on the internet.
such a sad shame, isn’t it? Reality really.
Also, no, she STILL doesn’t look like Anna, even with Anna’s hair, she doesn’t look like anna, she just looks like that other chick with Anna’s hair.
the fact that you have no creative eye to tell a difference in characters, even by minuscule teeny details, is ridiculous.
they’re still two different charterers
and by sitting there and comparing them all day, of course they’re going to look similar to you.
Quit bitching will you PLEASE.
Stop looking for every little thing to complain about, because Disney? Disney don’t give a fuck, and no matter how hard you try, they will NEVER give a fuck.
Okay I’m gonna pull this card because you’re just rude enough for it. I was an animation intern at Pixar in 2011 and just last year I was offered a job there that I only turned down because right now I prefer a permanent position as opposed to a 3-6 month contract. So no, you don’t get to use the “get a job and do it yourself” bullcrap on me.
Of course the edit doesn’t look exactly like Anna. But honestly, trying to tell me that the edit looks NOTHING like her is absurd. The proportions and facial features are very, very similar. If I were to overlay Anna’s face with Hiro’s mom there would be small differences, like maybe one nose is straighter than the other. When discussing character design similarities like this are terrible. There are infinite possibilities and Disney keeps using the same general face recently.
And I don’t complain just because it’s Disney. If another studio did this I would be on their ass about it too. I love animation and I love seeing studios push beyond what’s been done before. On top of that, I don’t complain because I hate the company, I complain because I know they can do SO MUCH BETTER.
Sit the fuck down, son. You just got told by a real quality professional and all of the other professionals are just shaking their heads at you.
I found this great blog today and had to share it :D
Refashionista is an amazing seamstress who refashions awful thrift-store finds into new clothes and some of these results are so amazing?? Check her out! :D
Never apologize for your fluency in english.
If you have a different mother tongue, you are under no obligation to know english at all, let alone fluent english.
Never let anyone make you feel bad for not speaking proper english.
Be proud of your mother tongue.
Why should we learn their language when they mock and refuse to learn our own.
Fifty Shades of Grey: Why We’re Not Cool With It And Why You Shouldn’t Be Either
Recently, the official trailer for the upcoming film based on the best-selling book Fifty Shades of Grey was released.
One day and almost 7 million views later, the trailer, and the book-turned-movie in general, is the hot topic of conversation all across the nation.
Some people are raving about it.
"Can’t wait for Fifty Shades of Grey," said one Twitter user."Idk about you but I’m pumped for Fifty Shades of Grey and I don’t care who knows it…" read another.And finally, one girl tweeted, “I advise every boy to watch fifty shades of grey, not for the story line but for the skills Christian Grey carries.”Wow.And that’s the fan base of Fifty Shades of Grey.
Then there’s other people, like us, who aren’t stoked at all because of what the story teaches and represents.The mission of Fight the New Drug is to show people how harmful porn really is, in all of its forms. That being said, books and literature can most definitely be pornographic. Especially books like Fifty Shades of Grey that contain a high amount of highly explicit and graphic sexual content.42% of male students and 20% of women said they regularly read romance novels, sexually explicit magazines, or regularly visited sexually explicit websites or chat rooms. Literature like Fifty Shades of Grey is referred to as erotica and can be just as harmful in warping ideas about sex and intimacy as pornographic videos and images are.
If you’re not totally familiar with Fifty Shades of Grey, here’s a quick rundown of why we are not cool with it. The storyline of the book, and now the upcoming big budget film, is entirely about a cold and sadistic millionaire and his seduction of a young, innocent girl into a world of sadomasochistic sexual perversion.
Now, if you don’t know what sadomasochism is, (commonly referred to as S&M), that’s good. We’re glad. But to help you understand just how sick this story is, we’ll tell you. It’s basically extreme acts of violence and abuse for sexual pleasure.
Yeah.Even worse, that IS the story. There’s really no plot. There’s really no big surprise or big ending. It is just an entire book, and soon an entire movie, about a controlling and domineering man and his sick sexual relationship with an unsuspecting girl.That’s the story of the book/film. But even worse than what it’s about, is what it teaches. What Fifty Shades of Grey promotes and comes across as giving acceptance to is definitely not okay.Still need more info?
No problem.It’s a popular opinion that the merit of any work, whether it be a book, painting, song, or film, relies on what it teaches. So in order to truly highlight Fifty Shades of Grey, we decided to come out with a nice little list of things that can be learned from this story.1. If you’re good looking, rich, and successful, you can develop a violent sexual appetite and people will be okay with it.Christian Grey, the main character in the book, is an incredibly wealthy and good looking guy. He has a mansion, flies around in a helicopter, and is the heartthrob of all the women he meets. Now, something tells us that if the main character was a slimy, homeless, ex-convict with a scraggly beard and missing teeth, people wouldn’t find this story arousing at all, but see it for the gross and deviant story that it is. Why are people so accepting of this dark and disturbing story just because the male character is supposed to be attractive and desirable?2. Sex is completely for pleasure and all love/romance should be removed from the situation.In the story, Christian makes women sign contracts that prevent them from ever speaking about what Christian does to them and completely gives him permission to do whatever he wants to them physically. Sound like a love story you want to read? Yeah, us neither.3. Girls: If you hang around long enough and put up with a guy’s “issues”, eventually he might love you and change.Anastasia, the main female character in the book, is a shy, reserved, and insecure student. She is even a virgin when she meets Christian. Throughout the book, Ana is exposed to his extremely deviant sexual desires and becomes the sole object of his desire. She is attracted to him and becomes charmed by all the lavish gifts that he provides her. She stays with him despite everything he does to her and becomes subject to his increasingly violent fantasies as he slowly guides her into accepting his disturbing behavior toward her. Fifty Shades of Grey teaches that girls are just helpless and fragile beings who will stick around for a man they find attractive. Would any of you girls stick around through all that? Didn’t think so.
4. Guys: You can do whatever you want to a girl and she’ll just take it.Christian Grey is a womanizer and he uses his money and charm to keep Ana around and wanting to be with him. Despite the fact that he uses all sorts of disturbing methods to inflict pain on her for his own sick pleasure, nothing or no one stops him. Ana is still drawn to him and he is still drawn to her. He can do whatever he wants sexually to her and he knows that she will eventually be magnetized back to him. Any of you guys think it’s okay to treat a woman, or any other human being, like that? Didn’t think so.
5. If you put a lot of highly explicit sexual material into a story, people will make it a best seller and it will even be turned into a big budget Hollywood film.Finally, we come back to the fact that this story was a best selling novel that is now being turned into a big budget Hollywood film. This beautiful and romantically heartwarming love story (*eye roll*) is the reason that millions and millions of dollars have been made by the author, publishing company, and now all the people associated with the film. Pretty hard to believe that a story entirely about a sadistic and violent sexual relationship has become so wildly popular.So, we think it goes without saying that we will not be spending our leisure time reading about disturbing sexual fetishes or buying tickets to the Fifty Shades of Grey movie when it comes out.We’re not cool with that. So we will keep Fighting against the twisted ideals and perceptions that pornographic material pushes into our society and we will be standing up for real love.

What were your inspirations, especially since [Tauriel] is a completely created character; what brought you to bring that power because there were a lot of ways you could have played that role that would have been along the lines of what we usually see for a girl in an action movie where she’s not in the adventure, she’s the prize…?
