I wasn’t the only one who felt like this shot was meaningful, right?  The camera practically lingers over a thoughtful Watson watching Iris Lanzer confess that Nell was very special to her.

I want to believe.  I want all these little things to be leading up to it, building up to Mary.  We get to see Joan on a series of failed dates with men, none with whom she can connect, nor figure out precisely why.  Joan explicitly says she doesn’t want a relationship and has to be prodded by Emily to date- first tricked into coffee with Aaron, then later guilted with the unsolicited gift of an online dating site membership.  Or even before any of that there was Ty: successful, handsome, charming Ty, friend of the family.  it doesn’t take much to read between the lines: he was good marrying material, according to her mother, and everybody thought they’d make a good pair.  So of course it made sense to say yes when he asked her out.  And they’ve managed to still be good friends afterward, because that sort of thing is easy to do when you were never really in love.

Her new life also keeps throwing stumbling blocks into her path …  Girls in T-shirts and underwear traipsing through the brownstone, or the hard-to-ignore sound of female moaning from Sherlock’s room.  A beautiful escort who tells her she thinks they could have some fun together with a wink and her card, which still remains inexplicably tucked in her wallet.  Sherlock jokes about Carrie as a failed Sapphic dalliance and no, it was never like that- so why does it irritate her more than any of the other stupid things he says?  And then there’s Moriarty, Moriarty with that painting, Moriarty coyly murmuring that Joan’s been on her mind.  It’s discomfiting because she’s in the cross-hairs of a sociopath, she tells herself.  No other reason.  Hell, even Ms. Hudson gets under her skin.  She’s just so inspiring to Joan, fearlessly living life as exactly who she is meant to be.

Joan and all these little dots she doesn’t, or refuses to, connect, even though they’re getting closer and closer.  Sleeping with Mycroft was to prove a point, to silence the voices in the back of her head, whether she admits it to herself or not.  And so we find her here now, as she watches Iris confess her love for Nell and feels almost wistful listening, even though she still won’t ask herself why.

When will Joan get to meet the woman who finally makes her realize what she’s been in denial about for so long?

Queer!Joan is a tangible need.

“Historically speaking, animating female characters are really, really difficult, ’cause they have to go through these range of emotions, but they’re very, very — you have to keep them pretty and they’re very sensitive to — you can get them off a model very quickly. So, having a film with two hero female characters was really tough, and having them both in the scene and look very different if they’re echoing the same expression; that Elsa looking angry looks different from Anna being angry.” — Lino Disalvo on animating Frozen, explaining (essentially) why they removed all the female supporting characters and replaced them with men. [[edited for accuracy]]

Yeah, I call bullshit.

don’t blame women because you’re a shitty animator

so basically what you’re saying is

"it was too harddddddd I didn’t wannaaaaaa."

"i dont care enough about women to animate them like reeeaaal peopleeee"

No. You don’t understand. You’re all ignorant fuckwads. Let me explain you a thing. Female faces? They’re softer. As in regardless of bone structure their faces are SOFT looking. Because of this, light bends differently and catches angles differently and the what not. Its harder to animate/draw/paint the female form, as any artist. It’s the same issue with babies- the SOFTNESS of the figure makes it harder to art them. And now I’m done with this tangent flies into the sun.

image

Excuse me?

image

Also untrue. 

image

As evidenced by all of these guys with soft faces

image

none of whom are impressed by your sexist bullshit

image

female skin is NOT different from male skin, biologically

image

female skin isn’t softer, you’re just trained to think of it that way by media and our societal expectation that women use make-up to MAKE their skin look softer, which has not been done all throughout history and thus doesn’t actually make any sense in a movie set in a historical time period when nobody expected anybody to have flawless skin

image

the problem isn’t animating women

image

the problem is animating women to look like an ideal while still keeping them diverse

image

image

If animators treated women like humans beings they wouldn’t have this problem

image

image

image

image

image

look at all of these soft faces

image

Don’t even fucking talk to me about Kadaj

image

image

image

This gifset is making you look as sexist as you are, say cheese!

image

image

image

Look at Shrek and Fiona next to each other

image

It doesn’t matter if they’re humans or ogres

image

their skin is animated exactly the same

image

Same for Lem and Neera

image

OH WOW HER SKIN IS SO MUCH SOFTER AND MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN HIS are you fucking kidding me with this

image

Basically fuck you

image

image

This is amazing.
Also I quite often have teachers tell me I need to down grade the way I draw noses and eyebrows and such on women. Draw less lines and details on women, they must all be beautiful and soft looking. I’ve actually had a teacher say: that’s why anime is so successful because the eyes are so big and they hardly even draw the nose. It’s appealing and should be used when always drawing women and children. AND THIS IRRITATES ME SO MUCH. I know it sells but I don’t want that. I want diverse, REALISTIC and different women with big noses and bushy eyebrows. With cheekbones and square jaws even. Not every female has a tiny, perfect nose, round features and perfect soft skin. arrrrrg 

I.. I’m just so happy that people are using both 3D and traditional animation in this post about animation… it’s so wonderful to see… thank you ;_;

All this delicious animation talk belongs on my dashboard.

Bless this post
