Awesome Week on @sketch_dailies
Monday: Honey Badger
Most people did Honey Badger not caring. But the prompt was awesome, and I couldn’t think of anything more awesome than a Super Saiyajin Honey Badger.
Tuesday: Ursula from The Little Mermaid
I was happily inspired, but this prompt took a turn for the hard. A lot of people “re-imagined” Ursula skinny, which didn’t sit well with us plus sizers who like her as she is. And worse, there were a lot of mean-spirited fat jokes used in sketches too. But the guy who runs sketches_daily is a total prince, and he was very respectful when I brought the concerns to him. He took me seriously. He gave me an answer that wasn’t perfect, but was thought out and sensitive. I have a lot of respect for him after that conversation, given this is all volunteer work on his part.
I admittedly used a riff on Sherlock because Cumberbatch has given me hype aversion like whoa. And I don’t know enough about Elementary. And yes, I forgot her cutie mark.
He won’t tell me his name. Or rather, every time he tells me, it’s something different. All I can get out of him for sure with any consistency is that he causes sandstorms and earthquakes, and he likes to run on the road going “meep meep” to troll the coyotes.
It says a lot for how aware I have become since coming on the internet that I tried to make Aphrodite look like a Greek goddess, rather than the blonde haired white girl she usually is portrayed as.
