The official tumblr blog for Tiny Gryphon Studios, a mediocre studio site for an artist who's dreaming big. You'll be seeing all of my work up on here including some drawings, sketches, digital paintings, and 3d work.

Police now forcing journalist and camera crews out of Ferguson. Still tear gassing protestors and aiming rifles and shot guns at people attempting to pass them and walk home.

- PEACHES

stele3:

Ferguson Police have dogs and shotguns. The unarmed crowd is raising their hands.

For anyone not following the Mike Brown story on Twitter: a 17 year old black boy named Mike Brown, who was supposed to start college tomorrow, was shot to death in Ferguson, Missouri by police while jaywalking. He was unarmed. He was shot 9 times.

Initial media reports claimed that an 18 year old black man had been shot and killed while fleeing police after shoplifting.

People in the neighborhood, including members of Mike Brown’s family, came out of their homes and began to protest, shouting “no justice, no peace,” and keeping their hands in the air.

Media reports claimed that a violent mob quickly formed around the shooting location shouting “kill the police.”

Spread this. Tell the truth about what happened to this boy. Tell the truth about what is happening NOW. The police and the mainstream media is painting him as a criminal, and his community as a violent mob.

SPREAD THIS. Don’t let them lie.

Well… my computer is old and wonky, so these past couple of days I’m trying to work on this piece to get it up by yesterday at the latest when it decides to completely give out at the most inopportune of times. Basically this is all I could salvage, and though I’m delayed with this pic I am planning on finishing at least sometime this next week… you know… as long as the comp permits it. =_=’
But enough about that, to add to this update I had decided to make the racer in this couple a dragon rider (not HTTYD related mind you) since I never really specified the type of racing she was into. ;D
also lol… no hands… as you may have noticed, I didn’t draw any hands. Though I do still plan them out, I don’t seem to like inking them until last. Not sure why…

SEEKING ARTIST FOR HIRE

aeolian-mode:

Hello everyone. As you may know, I’m starting my webcomic again on August 4. It’s an extremely difficult undertaking to do by myself, and I am wanting to make pages at a faster rate. This is why I would like to hire someone to help me with the artwork of my story. If you are…

A friend of mine had made an offer to try out the art trade, but she had requested that I go ahead and try the same prompt! I’ll be posting my pic either Friday or Saturday ;D

I’ve been working these past couple of weeks on some character concept art for this movie that may or may not even get made. I desperately want to show off some stuff, but I can’t for at least a couple of years from now. :’(

Diversity in Writing

What are you? I was born on the 22nd, so i’m a blood elf. Crazy isn’t it?

Orc, like there was ever a doubt

Ooo Tauren!

Draenei. :>

blood elf obviously

Wauw… I’m a human. You just don’t say. Always wanted to be another race but na-ah, you’re a human. Well thanks for that. 

im a gnome nooooo. no one loves meeee

be proud to be a human! humans are the most diverse group you could encounter. they are not singularly considered evil, good, or neutral. They are more chaotic/unknown than they are any singular alignment (more D&D based, but whatev’) and they are also known to possess the most flexibility than any other race! Want to do magic? you can do magic; want to be a warrior? you can be a warrior; want to be a roguish spy or thief? Well guess what! you can be! And you know what makes being human even more awesome? The rich cultures and the varieties of such! Their ingenuity and ever growing and expanding possibilities! that and everyone just wants to do us and be like us, so…

"I don't need feminism"; nobody said it was about you.

A response to ‘Women Against Feminism’.

Let me ask this though: How is feminism going to fix this? If you feminists are actually going out and fighting this stuff, trying to get things better in the middle east, than good for you, i’m in full support of that. That’s not what i’m seeing feminism do though. I’m seeing feminism sitting around on tumblr, degrading men (ironic, seeing as how tumblr was made by a man), not to mention calling out to kill or neuter all men, while all the while crying rape at innocent people and doing their very best to make sure that the only people who have any say in anything is them.

I am not going to come out of neutral for this one. 

Feminism is not about hating men. 

Feminism is not about hating men. 

Feminism is not about hating men. 

Feminism is about equal rights. There are women out there fighting against the sort of shit mentioned in this article, young girls being shot in the head because they dare to stand up and say they want education. If you’re asking what feminism is doing for these women, Google Malala Yousafzai. Send her an e-mail about how you don’t think feminism is really going to help. 

True Feminism does not: 

1. Degrade men. Feminism is about destroying harmful gender norms that oppress both sexes. 

2. Give a shit that Tumblr was made by a man. 

3. Demand the abuse of men. 

4. Encourage the use of false rape accusations. 

If you see those things, that’s not feminism, that’s man-hating, and that is a different ball game entirely. 

If you’re going to tell ‘us feminists’ what we shouldn’t be doing, at least make sure you’re pointing the finger at the right people, not those who use the generalised perception of feminism to protect them when they say harmful things. 

The niggles of the Tumblr community are nowhere near as harmful as the abuse visited down on women every minute of every day (did you know that in America in 2013, a woman was raped every 3 minutes?). Any warped opinion should be challenged, especially if it seeks to oppress other people. 

I am a feminist. I don’t hate men. There are men out there who are also oppressed, and I’m as much for them as I am my fellow women. 

Don’t lump us in with man-hating, because that’s not what we do.

I’m sorry for any feminist who has ever been misjudged for this sort of thing, but this is what needs to be made known to the world again, and again.

The real problem is, despite what feminism may stand for, many people out there don’t seem to know what the cause truly is. I mean, can you blame them? So many people have encountered these abusers of the movement and even extremists, as well as the abusers and extremists of men’s rights and have basically been left with the impression that the fight isn’t for equality at all.

What’s even worse is that many forms of media basically supports this poor representation by presenting female/male characters with an astounding amount of hate towards the opposite sex and who uses the titles of feminist/men’s rights activist. They show these characters off often depicted in an act of violence towards the opposite sex and rarely if ever do they ever bring in a character or group of characters that rights the wrong that’s being shown.

In my opinion, it’s in the media where we need to start the fix of what is being seen and known about these movements. If these groups can be represented by dignified characters who are not just made for jokes, or something to be made an enemy of we can start changing the views that people have on both feminists and men’s rights activists.

Despite everything we may believe, it’s in the media most people seem to receive their information and opinion from, and it’s through there we need to educate them on what’s going on. On what’s really going on.
