Artist Appreciation: Phil Noto’s Hank Pym’s Photo Archive.
This is one of my favorite projects by an artist. Not only is each of his works beautifully detailed, but Noto also seems to turn these fictional superheroes into real life people. I love the use of actual dates in order to show us a glimpse into the real lives of these characters. I feel like I would see this “photographs” in old issues of TIME Magazine or something. Fantastic.
No…This logic is flawed. I’d explain why but I am so very tired.
No. You just don’t have a strong logic. That’s okay, you go take a rest.
WOW. The personal insult was not required.
But thank you for taking it upon yourself to assume my logic is weak just because I don’t have the time or energy to refute this.
But I DO have the time to grab some links and here you go.
White washing. For real? People in Scandinavia are f*cking white! What’s Disney supposed to do? Make Anna an eskimo and go against the origin of the tale?
You did not look at a single link I sent you did you? I posted this not even 3 minutes ago there is no way you read all of those articles in that tiny time frame. So you didn’t learn anything.
Well since you won’t look at it anyways here’s one more.
I skimmed. I’ll read that new one down there later. It’s all the same bullshit of Disney being a racist company and the majority of the characters featured in the films are white, despite the fact that the characters are from different countries and points of origin. Disney tries their best to keep the characters true to the origin of the original tale, i.e. Snow White is German (as the tale is a Brother’s Grimm story), Belle is French (as the verse of the tale Disney decided to base the movie off of came from France) and so on. What is Disney honestly going to do? They tried with Princess and the Frog and attempted it as a cultured piece set in 1920’s New Orleans, but it’s claimed “racist”. OR the fact that people complained that there were no colored people in Brave (although the film takes place in 12th century SCOTLAND. Sorry, but pretty sure there weren’t black Scotsmen in those days).
I don’t understand, here. Would you really think Disney would take the tale of Frozen with characters with those of color? If so, where in the world would it take place?
Maybe people keep saying Disney is racist because they kind of are? did that thought eve occur?
But here is the flaw in your logic. First off, I loved Princess in the Frog and I thought it was stunning. It’s actually my favorite Disney movie.And having been to New Orleans I can say they did an excellent jon everything. The only thing “wrong” with the movie is that it’s not historically accurate because whites and blacks were not such best buddies during the 20’s and this movie would have been better set in modern times. Other than that Princess and the frog is cinematic perfection.
And THAT is kind of my point. who cares if it’s hysterically accurate? it’s a cartoon, Are you seriously telling me that it’s impossible for black people to have been in Brave but it’s totally possible for a girl to follow blue lights to a witch in the woods that turns her mother into a bear!?
Happily ever after fairy tales for every child was a low budget HBO series but even they knew well enough to have Inuit characters in a movie set in the Arctic.
Guess what. Disney did that too. It’s called Brother Bear. Guess how well that did in the box offices.
Honestly I’m tired of this conversation. If you want to know why Disney or even the media in general white washes you’ve got to look at the numbers.
In the last 10 years Disney (not including pixar) created 14 movies. 4 Of which centered around talking animals. 5 which stared non-Caucasian characters. Of those 5 amazing movies, 4 of them bombed in the box office. Their biggest revenue came from Tangled, and Wreck it Ralph.
Don’t blame disney for being a business. Blame the society we live in.
oh my god it is calming
i think we could all use some calming cat right about now.
I literally just looked at this and thought about how calming this cat is.
Since the day I got back (a week ago) I’ve been finishing off works from ‘12 and starting new ones. This work is cropped btw
And finally, a few parting words from Frodo:
ok I don’t care if this has already been made (though I haven’t seen it anywhere). Dwarves are so fun to draw!
Goodness i snorted.
