This journal is just a quickie to voice my opinion on the ever growing fad of redesigning Sally Acorn of the archie sonic comic. I normally don't like complaining about stuff of this calibre, because it's downright geeky to even obsess over it like some of the type of people that are bigtime fans of this stuff, but this is getting a little irritating, mostly because nothing new or significant is coming out of it.
So I ran upon
's Sally Acorn design, and this was pretty much the straw that broke the camel's back to me. THERE'S BARELY FUCKING ANYTHING NOTICEABLY NEW IN IT ABOUT HER. *Addressing everyone doing similar to this* Why have people been doing this shit lately? You think you're being cool and creative trying to redesign an already redesigned character? You think anyone official will notice, and will probably adopt your redesign instead? Do you think anyone of any decent art caliber (or someone who matters for that part) will make it big or popular for you? It drives me up the fucking wall seeing
draw different variations of Sally with: no cheek fuzz; with cheek fuzz; with no clothes on; with clothes on, as if trying to be politically correct aka appealing to everybody. It's not necessarily entirely the content that's the problem, but the mindless indulgence that ticks me off about this all.
We forget that these redesigns aren't something to be praised or indulged upon, as they were brought about by stupid ass BIASED, FLAWED, SEXIST ideologies, not to mention some rather horrible circumstances regarding the Archie Comic and lawsuit issues, as well as a Japanese superiority complex - Really, I could tear the Japanese Sonic continuity a new one logically as it's full of plot holes, erroneous artistic design, RIPPED off designs, and
stolen ideas. The Western localization of STH is superior not because it's Western, but because it has the LEAST amount of flaws, and SOME of you Japanese could learn to not think that everything you do is hot shit.
I personally will be glad when this Sally redesign bullshit fad is over. Not to say that the DA users I mentioned are bad people or anything, but I had to vent my irritation. I'm sick of seeing it - and a big fuck you goes to anyone who thinks "Don't like, don't look". I'll look at whatever I want and complain about it anyway. Freedom of speech. Deal with it.
EDIT: In my RAEG I forgot that there ARE people who are not aware of the background goings on behind the scenes in what caused the redesigns in the first place. If you're doing this and don't know about the Ken Pender's Court Case and the bullshit proceeding it, feel free to ignore this journal.
