Anonymous said: i'm pretty sure you get asked this a lot, but what program do you use for drawing?

I usually use Photoshop (I have the CS6 version) and Paint Tool Sai. Both are great, I’d recommend Sai for its simplicity if you’re not used to those kind of programs yet. Also I recently discovered Krita, that has interesting effects and brushes, and is a freeware, but I didn’t have the time to play too much with it, sadly. 

I admit Ps is my favorite though, for you can find and use a lot of awesome brushes, tools and patterns. However, Sai is extremely useful when drawing straight lines. I also really enjoy working with colors on Sai…

I’m not actually asked that often, so I hope this helped!

Cassandra Cain Redesignfest
“You can change. You can.”
Barbara Gordon. Selina Kyle. Kate Kane. Bette Kane. Leslie Thompkins. Helena Wayne. Harper Row. Strix. Carrie Kelley. Stephanie Brown. Julia Pennyworth. Onyx. Helena Bertinelli. The New 52 has seen both the debut and the return of nearly every woman to ever be a part of the Batman legacy.
Excepting, of course, Cassandra Cain. And between the new Barbara Gordon Batgirl redesign that’s been doing the rounds and Stephanie Brown’s stylish new Spoiler duds, well. Cassandra’s had some pretty great costumes over the years. But it’s about time a certain former Batgirl got her own snazzy new redesign, isn’t it?
So here’s the deal. Batgirl. Black Bat. A new identity entirely. Steampunk, futuristic, noir, medieval, alternate universe, New 52, whatever you want - the only rules? It must be Cassandra Cain. And it must be a redesign.
All entries will be reblogged to inthenameofcassandracain. Entries may be submitted, or posted under the #casscainredesigns tag. Existing redesigns are absolutely welcome and encouraged.
So what are you waiting for? Let’s show Cass some love!

I’ve had this list sitting around for a while (in case I ever want to try something new) and I thought I’d share it, because why the hell not, everybody loves free stuff. I’ve only used a couple, so for all I know these could be complete shit. BUT YOU NEVER KNOW, RIGHT?

Ya know something interesting about the Marvel/DC ‘rivalry’ on tumblr?

Everyone acts like DC is this super regressive company compared to Marvel when DC really did more progressive stuff first and is still doing so.

Women as heroes?
DC’s had Wonder Woman as one of their three major heroes forever, but everyone ignores that because “But she doesn’t have a movie yet” (more on that later)

While Marvel can claim the first black hero in comics with Black Panther, DC actually had heroes talking explicitly about race with John Stewart and Hal Jordan, and did a lot of issues with progressiveism and liberalism vs convsativism in the Green Arrow/Green Lantern series (including a black person calling out Hal on how little he did to fight oppression on earth as he did the rest of the universe), and Green Arrow and Hawkeye arguing politics was a common thread of their time on the JLA together.

Black Lightning was the first African-American superhero with no criminal record (Luke Cage did get his powers in prison, it’s kinda stereotypical)

DC itself actually funded and published Milestone comics, a comics company entirely devoted to more diverse comics. If you’ve ever heard of Static you owe DC comics.

Marvel has never had anything even remotely equivalent.

When it comes to LGBT stuff, DC comics had a lesbian Batwoman and a lesbian woman taking over from a male hero in The Question.
While not a hero explicitly DC has a transwoman supporting character in Batgirl. (And I’m not even counting the trans characters in Vertigo books.)
It has Alan Scott being gay inthe Nu52 continuity, 
I know Grace Choi was bisexual pre-reboot (I don’t know the current status)
Had a gay black teen hero in the Superboy & the Ravers comic in the 90s, as well as the character of Obsidian who was a major supporting character in the JSA.

The idea of characters of color or a different gender taking the place of legacy characters is nothing new for DC.
Like I mentioned, a lesbian Latin@ became the Question, there was an asian woman hero Doctor Light, a black woman Doctor Midnight, a Latina became the new Wildcat.

Now I mentioned I’d get back to movies later on and, let’s look at DC & Marvels movies in terms of ethnicity here, most notably the recent casting rumors.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson basically said he’d be playing Shazam.
Shazam, a previously white hero, played by a Black & Samoan man.

Aquaman, if rumors are to be believed, will be played by Jason Momoa.
Aquaman, a white blonde haired, blue eyed hero, played by a Samoan man.

Meanwhile over at Marvel….Well Falcon and Rhodey get to exist, but they’re up to this point still just little more than sidekicks to the white heroes in the movies.
Marvel makes a movie about a superhero team and goes “Yeah, everyone is still white as they were in the 1960s.” 
DC looks at their superhero team and says “We need to make the team more diverse, even if it means changing the race of the heroes” and people act like they’re some super regressive company.


I’m fine with folks preferring one company over the other.
I’m fine with folks being excited Marvel is having legacy characters change race and/or gender with who gets to pick up the legacy.

But as a lifelong comic fan it’s kinda annoying to see people praising Marvel as super progressive for doing shit DC did in the 80s and still does to this day.

Especially when with Marvel it’s coming across far more as a blatant publicity grabs.

Also yeah no wonder woman movie but it’s not like we have a black widow movie do we
