Ok but Albino Night Furies. Not white Night Furies, but albino, more like a snake.
Ive wanted to do this for a while and I was talking with howtotrainyourbabyboo about stuff like albino and peid and different coloration on dragons and I was like OKAY I HAVE TO DO THIS. I tried something different with the shading here and I don’t really like it.  The markings and colors are inspired by Albino (and lavender albino) Ball Pythons and Toothless’s own markings.  

Oh my gods jack it looks fantastic!! I really hope you started something and now people will be drawing beautiful dragons with mutations!

GO FORTH AND CREATE MUTATED DRAGONS ES
And thank you ;v;

Glowing necklaces available once again in my shop! -

Even though the winged ones take a lot longer to make, people like them a lot, so I managed to make 10 of them this week~! Along with other designs, of course. Remember, these sell out really fast, so if you want one, better get it now! I upload new designs every few weeks or so (unless I’m hella busy), so if you want to know how to get notified about uploads, or if you have any other questions, read this FAQ here!

Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend~!

Miyazaki: The Problem With The Anime Industry Is It’s Full of People Who Actually Buy the Content They Consume

 #I’M REALLY TORN ABOUT THIS #I LOVE MIYAZAKI AND THE THINGS HE MAKES #BUT NOW I FEEL COMPLETELY INSULTED BY A PERSON I LOOK UP TO #ALSO HE IMPLIES MASTURBATION IS AS BAD AS WAR????? #WTF MIYAZAKI WHO ARE YOU #I HATE SEEING THE PERSON BEHIND THE CREATIONS SOMETIMES #THIS IS HORRIBLE AND I WISH I DIDN’T SEE IT #IT’S JUST LIKE HORRIBLESUBS AND THE SHITTY THINGS THEY SAY ABOUT THE FANS WHO WATCH THE SHOWS THEY FANSUB #JFC FUCK THE WORLD 
Methinks Miyazaki has spent a little too much time going bar hopping with Hideki Anno

He’s the new Alan Moore. Was only a matter of time.

IN WHICH I WRITE A VERY LONG POST ABOUT WHY MIYAZAKI IS NOT WRONG AND I APPARENTLY CAN’T INSERT A READ MORE BREAK SO SUCK IT IN THAT REGARD TOO, I GUESS
tl;dr:
If you unironically call yourself an otaku, you’re lumping yourself in with some of the least-respected members of society in Japan, and you shouldn’t be surprised/outraged when a well-respected member of Japanese society looks down on you.
The things otaku like are off-putting, and because the anime industry makes most of their money from otaku, the anime industry in general is off-putting.
The anime industry should probably be restructured so that otaku have less power to decide what gets animated, otherwise the anime industry will collapse because NOBODY LIKES IT.
Gimme your lunch money, nerds.
Uh, he never implied masturbation is as bad as war. He’s being a cranky old man, as cranky old men are wont to do. The author of the article just listed those things as additional things Miyazaki doesn’t like.
And something you people really, really, REALLY need to understand is that "otaku" is not a term of endearment in Japan the way “nerd” has become so in the West. If I were to speculate, I’d say it has a lot to do with cultural values - here, we place a lot of value and pride in our individual identities, but that just is not the case in Japan. They, and the East Asian countries in general, place a lot of value in working to improve the collective. Being an otaku implies a lot of the things you’d think being the classical “nerd” implies - living in your mother’s basement, spending all your time watching anime/slacking off, and being a general drain on society. While that’s not “accepted” in the West per se, it is not directly contradictory to every cultural value we have. We’re just expressing our identities when we do those kinds of things. In Japan, they are the antithesis of a praiseworthy member of society.When the anime industry is, in Miyazaki’s mind, full of these kinds of people, who seal themselves off in insular groups and jack off to 2D waifus all day in between drawing said 2D waifus, that is a real problem.
Frankly, when I look at the entire catalogue of anime titles released over the past 5 years, I see what he means. Who the fuck is going to buy OreImo except lolicon siscon hentai otaku? Who the fuck is going to buy K-On! except ronery NEETs? I LOVE the Monogatari Series - but who the fuck is going to buy that shit except social rejects? 
Real-life people do not act like the people in those shows.Real people do not say to their friends/rivals in love “hey, let’s take a shower together while I fondle your tits.” Real sisters do not fall in love with their oniichan desu~s after many sessions of counseling. I love the tsundere archetype, but a real-life tsundere is someone that nobody wants to be around because they treat other people like shit.
I probably should devote an entire paragraph to lolis. (Most) people do not sexualize little girls, and in fact find the sexualization of of little girls to be repulsive. Why, then, are there so many lolis in anime? Because lolis represent a lot of things that a lot of men find desirable in women - innocence, petite bodies, cuteness in general. But for whatever reason, it has become not only okay, but the norm for anime to have prepubescent girls in compromising sexual positions. If you like flat chests - fine. If you like inexperienced girls - fine. If you like cute things - fine. Mashing all of those things together on a 12-year-old and slapping a bikini on her to appeal to otaku with those preferences? Most people will say that is fucked up. 
Fanservice is off-putting to a lot of people. Incest is off-putting to a lot of people. Lolis are off-putting to a lot of people. Unbelievable characters and character interactions are off-putting to a lot of people. But those things are things that self-proclaimed otaku audiences embrace, so that’s what the Miyazaki-proclaimed otaku in the industry draw. Because animation studios make so little money off of anything but DVD and merchandise sales, and otaku are the only people who buy that stuff, the anime industry of late has become inbred and stale at best, and offensive and pedophilic at worst.
Miyazaki is well-loved, both in the West and in the East. But he is not well-loved because his works are made for otaku. I’ve never seen anything he’s made, but the sense I get is that he’s loved in the mainstream because he tells stories that resonate with a hell of a lot of people. The problem he sees in the anime industry is that their works tend only to resonate with otaku, and otaku are not acceptable members of society in Japan. From what I’ve seen of what’s been released and been popular the past few years, I cannot blame him for thinking the way he does.

pfff i can’t believe people who like anime are getting offended and worked up over this. mostly what i got from this is Miyazaki dislikes how centered the industry is on “otaku” culture, like the commentary above talks about. not just the cultural shift or fandom, but as an art form. it’s boring. typical monotonous moe styles churned out constantly, geared to appeal to perverted men. it’s fostering a generation of artists who animate and design people poorly, or so uncreative to meet expectations he feels like it holds back the industry and cheapens it. they don’t take inspiration from real life, real people- they just do the style that’s making money and get it out as fast as possible. (many many many animes are like that, i’m not talking about the quality shows from innovative studios… even though they still are hung up on popular styles sometimes.) this guy had a huge hand in making japanese animation a recognized art form, i think he has more than enough of a right to criticize and grumble about what it’s become. he’s spent his whole fucking life dedicated to animation, dude has worked so hard for so long he doesn’t even know how to retire. you’d be pissy too.
and i agree with him, honestly. i love some anime but 80% of it is pretty lifeless and predictable, following the same formulas and with the same styles. i only really take notice when something seems unique or memorable. most anime these days is a total waste of time tbh. for every good show there’s hundreds of meh shows, yaaawn shows, shitty shows, and a HUGE variety of hentai/pervy shit. dude is bitter and who can blame him, he’s been animating for SIX DECADES and here we are.
