Despicable Me did come out first but it was about 4 months before Megamind released. There were two major hits to why a lot of people didn’t make it to see Megamind…

As a fan, animation student and tbh a person that appreciates good animated movies, it pisses me off that Megamind got swept under the rug like that. It’s so well made in many ways, and because its release coincided with the release of two big films, people paid less attention to it. And then because it came out not long after Despicable Me, some people had already had their fill of animated movies about evil science-wielding villains turned good. I loved DM, but feel it got way too much hype when Megamind got very little.

Earlier today I said to my sister “God, I’d really love a Minion plushie,” she started saying stuff like “Oh they’re so cute”, not realising I was actually talking about the adorable alien fish, not the little yellow guys. Even though I’d literally just been talking about Megamind.

I swear to the gods this movie needs a sequel and more merch and the fans, bless them, need a hell of a lot more recognition from the creators for being so loyal and friendly and not letting the fandom die even though there’s been hardly even a mention of our leather-wearing blue friend for what, four years?

Dreamworks, you were smart enough to make the masterpiece that was Rise Of The Guardians, and you’ve brought out an amazing sequel to How To Train Your Dragon. You’re missing out on a big thing here. Quit trying to keep the Shrek franchise going and listen to your fucking fans for once.

Despicable Me did come out first but it was about 4 months before Megamind released. There were two major hits to why a lot of people didn’t make it to see Megamind in theaters. One being Tangled and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 were released the same month as Megamind. Most family households these days can’t afford going to the movies too often especially if it’s a family thing so a lot of people waited to see the disney film, because well it’s disney, and Harry Potter which had a strong established following. The second thing that ruined Megamind for many people was the advertisement, which was poorly handled by Paramount. Many many people have commented after finally seeing the movie they thought it was a shit ton better than they were expecting, which is why they never chucked out the dough to see it on the big screen. We can only assume Paramount just didn’t give a shit anymore because it was the last movie they were set to market before their contract ran out with Dreamworks.
It is sad, we believe if not already doomed from the start Megamind would have done very well. Early on Dreamworks had actually thought Megamind was going to be their next Shrek and had planned much more for the future.. if only things had been different u_u

In regards to Clone Scarlett…

Progress and final on this quick piece. Took like a bit over an hour? I saw a cool color palate/bg idea another artist did and I really wanted to apply it to a piece. :D So have some sexy Clone Scarlett on your dash <33 

She looks rather badass.. but how will she feel towards Vice and the kids? And vice versa ? (snort)

*you wrote that comment JUST so you could say that didnt you?! LOL* 

-sorry for the novel- I’ve actually thought long about that. I think it would be the worst in the beginning. Because she will have to accept that she’s no longer herself, that she died. She of course cannot blame the kids for bringing her back- they’re just trying to do what they thought they wanted/needed for themselves and Vice. I imagine she’d feel sub-par, second to her original self. 

And thus the need for the appearance change. Its not that she doesn’t want to be Scarlet- but she knows that she will never be her to Vice. She knows that her original self would be upset if she knew that she was going to die- but also that she’d want to somehow be able to take care of the boys. ;D All three lol. And of course she cant help but love all of them. She is after all, a clone of Scarlet. I think what will finally draw them all together out of the chaos is having Isis. :) It will be like ROUND TWO- for them as a family.

Edit: oh yeah- lol how will they feel towards her? Well the kids thought it was a good thing they were doing soo I think they’ll be ok about it? But not sure about Vice, you tell me? My assumptions are he would be upset that she exists, of course- how long though until he gives in because he misses the actual Scarlet? Will he give in at all? HM HM- questions!

Dude his mind would be all over the place. Between the depression of actually losing Scarlet for real, then knowing his boys made a clone of her and being a clone he knows all too well how that feels.. He’d be completely torn for some time. He knows the moment you know you aren’t the real thing, things change, the clone starts becoming a different person from that point. So he knows she wont be Scarlet but he can’t let himself neglect her just because she is a clone. Hed have to fall in love with her all over again.

So just did a HUGE dump of art from here onto my DA account- I forgot about it…u_u but uhh so looking back at some of the old art on there- and even some of my new stuff- EYEBROWS DONT DO THAT SELF.

I noticed some of the eyebrows were WAY to close to the hair line. Probably wouldnt have noticed it had all the eyebrow talk bout Vice not happened- and not only that but…I draw heads so weirdly….can I just-STOPPLZSELF

lol, and i used to think I was boss at side views- what was I even- no self NO. In conclusion, i am happily seeing things that I can work on! LETS DO IT! >D CMON SELF! 

This has been a usual self pep talk. Please continue with your typical late night tumblr browsing. Thank you.~

Watched Megamid 3 times in the last two days. Had a dream last about Minion following me around and calling me “sir”. Um…

Update: I’ve watched Megamind four times this week and don’t know what the fuck is going on.

You have the sickness. The best kind!
