IT’S A HUMMINGBEE

These are BEE FLIES!

Harmless to everything else, these precious little cutie pies sneak their eggs into beehives, where their larvae can parasitize bee larvae and eat their food reserves!

Simultaneously adorable and insidious!

fairy types.

OH MY GOD

SO I LIVE NEXT TO A VERY STRICT, VERY BIG, CHRISTIAN FAMILY AND ALL OUR WINDOWS ARE OPEN AND I JUST SCREAMED “JESUS FUCK” REALLY LOUD AND I HEARD 3 MORTIFIED GASPS FROM OUTSIDE IM CRYING

Anonymously tell me your feelings for me.

It doesn’t have to be romantic (though if you did feel that way, it’d be perfectly fine). Just how you feel in general. I get curious of people’s impressions of me.

minimum wage doesn’t even TOUCH a living wage, racism and sexism are alive and well, children are killed in schools on a regular basis, those who make it to college end up with hundreds of thousands in debt, our basic rights are being stripped from us daily, and adults actually believe that SELFIES are the cause for this generation’s demise

i KNOW i’m just beating a long-dead horse by doing this but for god’s sake disney

fyi only superficial things were changed in the edit (hair, eyelash length, freckles, skin tone) the actual model wasn’t changed at all

to be clear: she photoshopped anna’s hair onto hiro’s mom face. a lot of people in reblogs seem to think that the one on the right is literally anna and trying to find miniscule, non-existant differences… which sort of proves the point? that a picture of a different character can be mistaken for anna so easily with just a hairstyle change and that people will still defend the design choice to the death rather than admit the similarities… sheeesh.

I’m gonna play the devil’s advocate here… So, people are fucking expensive to create and using pre-existing models makes things easier on everyone. Also, if you’ll notice that a lot of people do actually look very similar (not as similar as these two, but still). Typically the differences in a group of people is hair, eyes, skin tone, etc. Disney is under pressure to constantly have films out and if they weren’t it would be different, however they are and with deadlines being so close together and the fact that animated films take 5+ years to make and a lot of fucking money, it will be okay if characters look alike. They all have key characteristics in WHO THEY ARE NOT WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE THAT MAKE THEM SPECIAL. And here I thought that was a common goal.

1. The idea of giant company like Disney using preexisting models for their main characters is not only laughable, but lazy and shameful.

1. Disney has money. They have a LOT of money. They have resources. They have talented people.  And they clearly have enough time to create male characters with distinctive characteristics. The exact same should be true for female characters.

3. Oh look the “it doesn’t matter what they look like, it’s their personality that matters” argument. Movies are a VISUAL MEDIUM. Character design is rooted in figuring out who a character is and then basing the design off that. Good design should give an idea of a character’s personality before even watching the movie.

4. Playing the devil’s advocate only works if your argument makes sense and you understand what you’re arguing. Statements excusing Disney from lazy character design only shows your complete lack of understanding in how the animation industry works.

These people obviously haven’t worked in the industry at all. That is not how computer animation works, especially at a highly funded, enormous company. I mean, look at Dreamworks- Even the background Vikings in the latest film vary a lot from model to model and all have tons of character just to view.

Honestly it’s getting to the point that Disney should be ashamed that it needs people to blindly defend their every move.

As for the people blindly defending it, please understand you can still enjoy things and critique them. Understand that as a visual medium, it’s unacceptable to have so many wildly different characters be identical and possibly even have identical models.

This is not people hating on Disney for no reason, this is people holding Disney to a high standard they established themselves and that fans have come to love.

It’s more than just the fans, though: people defending it are telling creators who go to work for lower-level companies like Dreamworks, Blue Sky, etc. etc. etc. that when they do work that out performs Disney, it’s still worthless. 

Because Disney will always get to do whatever the hell they want, no matter how hard other people work, because of the monopoly they hold.

I love Disney and I love what they do, I really do! But shit like this hurts the industry and young creatives, man.
