Senpai Appreciation Post: Ryoji Nomura - Nippon Ichi Artist
Taking a bit of a break from Capcom artists for the next few S.A. posts.
Ever since I first played La Pucelle and fell in love with Prier and the art… I’m heavily influenced by Ryoji, and I would probably say he’s one of the major two artists where the “roundness and curviness” that people call out in my style comes from. He basically taught me that it’s okay to draw gals with some meat on them. His knowledge of stylized weight distribution in posture and forms is something I aspire to achieve in my own work. (Almost somewhat like an anime-influenced Chris Sanders, if that makes any sense.)
He also has a really appealing character design aesthetic, usually leaning towards a mix of “cute sexy badass”, especially on his female designs. I also love how organic his work appears as well; you can see his footprint in his strokes and color style. He tends to extremely exaggerate proportions in some of his more recent work, but all in all, still one of my personal favorites.
One of my Favorite, Same for me, when I played La Pucelle I fell in love with artwork and the character design, and Prier especially.
Protagonist: the central character tied into the main storyline. Their goals fuel the action and their own personal journey.
Antagonist: the character whose goals directly oppose those of the protagonist. They are not necessarily an ‘evil’ character or ‘the baddie’, but their…
Little request idea from a Smash thread.
In the land of shorties, the little guy is king.
dont worry kiddo, when tumblr is telling you youre a piece of shit for existing as who you are, you can just log off and go back to your life of luxury
come here, i need to talk to you for a second
being white, cisgendered, and heterosexual does not mean you have never struggled or suffered or known hardship. obviously that’s not true, and obviously you can have a pretty shitty life and still be white, cisgendered, and heterosexual.
but here’s the thing: even if you have struggled or suffered or known hardship, you have never struggled or suffered or known hardship on the basis of your race, gender identity or sexual orientation. that doesn’t mean you’ve had it better or worse (though i would hazard you have had it better, since there are very few people who will outright murder you for being a fiscally challenged white kid). the word “privileged” doesn’t mean “materially wealthy” and it doesn’t apply universally. example: i’m white, and i’m cis, but im also queer and a woman and not that materially wealthy. this doesn’t mean i’m not privileged by my cis-ness and my whiteness. it also doesn’t mean that i don’t know the hardships that come along with being a queer woman without a lot of money. what it means is that i know certain hardships but i don’t know others — some of who i am entitles me to things that others do not or can not have, based on institutionalized systems of oppression of which i am inevitably a part.
i understand that the word “privileged” carries certain connotations with it — material wealth, a carefree, happy-go-lucky lifestyle filled with candy and unicorns. but that’s not what privilege looks like. privilege is being able to go through life with the assumption that you will not be discriminated against for your race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. it’s being able to call the police or approach an authority figure without fear for your own safety. it’s being able to expect representation in all forms of media, and respect and understanding from your peers. “privilege” manifests in many, many ways, just as hardship does.
privilege doesn’t mean you have an easy life. it means you have certain attributes that give you an advantage over people who don’t. that isn’t your fault, and it isn’t something you need to feel guilty about having, but you need to be aware of it so that you aren’t ignorant to its affect on other people, and so that you’re aware of the fact that it is something special that you got and other people didn’t. your privilege comes at the cost of someone else. you didn’t ask for it, but that’s how it goes. you didn’t ask to be poor either, but that’s where you’re at — and do you think that someone with more money than you doesn’t have more power? more representation? more privilege?
being poor and living in an abusive household and being white, cis, and hetero are not things that are mutually exclusive. you can be all of those things. very few people are purely privileged. but thinking that you can’t be poor and possibly have advantages over someone who is a person of color, or trans, or queer is a mistake. that doesn’t mean you don’t have hard times. it doesn’t mean your struggles aren’t valid. but it does mean that they are not the struggles that other people have.
and that? is a privilege.
Tumblr: not caring if you’re trying to make a point since whenever it was created
wait for the lyrics.
tumblr kind of squished the images they were wider, but I guess that’s the bad thing about working with the binary tool
scroll fast the song has a lot of words!
