I always feel so pained when people don’t know Cybersix.
Cybersix is a forgotten national treasure of Canadian programming — it’s an unexpected collaboration between the Japanese studio TMS Animation and the Canadian animation network Teletoon. It’s a loose adaptation of the Argentine comic of the same name and cancelled only after a 13 episode season run (probably because it was too good to exist) and market distribution thereafter has been limited and obscure at best.
The MC is genderqueer/nonbinary who presents as a male teacher by day and a lady crime fighter by night, has a brother who also happens to be a panther who also fights crime, has a bara love interest who is drawn to both identities, the villains are ex-Nazi SS agents, AMAZING ANIMATION, and so many other great things.
Also the opening is gorgeous.
^ All of this! If you haven’t watched Cybersix, try and find it, it’s SO WORTH IT!
My dear followers, I need your help in the #DesignforLindseyStirling contest! I wouldn’t be asking this way if I didn’t really, really want this, or if I didn’t think I deserved a real shot against the other entires. Please go to Talent House and VOTE! You can vote up to two times using Facebook and Twitter. The rankings and competition is tough, so please reblog this to help spread the word! I love you guys, and I know you have it in you to reblog this the way you reblogged the shit out of that pumpkin spice comic because you’re a bunch of crazy beautiful people. Thanks for taking the time to help make this crazy little contest dream of mine maybe come true-!!
I’ll be reblogging this daily for the next week, so if you’ve already voted (THANKS SO MUCH!) then feel free to block the tag ‘zimreblogslindsey’ to keep your dash clear for a bit. Thank you!!
WELL, it looks like the fan favorite choice is locked in with a sudden 4k+ votes that accumulated overnight, (I think the entry was made by a superpopular Spanish speaking comic artist?). Votes and reblogs are still super appreciated and very much needed; perhaps Lindsey will see my work if it’s somewhere near the runner-up! Thanks lovelies. <3
I admit, I’ve been thumbnailing (which are little tiny doodles of planning. What the page layouts are, and what goes where, etc.) Chapter 8 of Raindrops on and off because the script is so loaded with stuff I’m normally not comfy with. I’ve finally been struck with the mood to really work on it at last. I thought I’d be sketching full pages by now but… I’m only halfway thumbnailing *So far at 42 pages! 42!!!* And I’m only halfway through the script why oh why am I doing this to myself. It’s going to kill me later whyyyy. At this rate Chapter 8 can be a book by itself. T.T
