Hey, if you don’t mind sharing, I’ve always wondered how you got that soft celling look on your characters in your comic. Any tips? I’m currently working on my own comic and I kind of want to go for a less harsh form of cell shading. Thanks!
A couple people have asked about the way I color things and I’ve been meaning to post a tutorial on it :]. I’ve never been too good at describing my process, but I hope this helps!
i wonder what this could be now

Some thoughts (meta?) on the Not-So-Gabriel Gabriel
I was under the impression that this Gabriel was less “how he would be if alive” and more “some puppeted version of what Metatron either remembers or wishes him to be”.
If he’s not a fan of God’s work, he’s likely not fond of the Winchester Chronicles’ depiction of a lost puppy archangel who is reined in by The Righteous Man, and reminded of his power and where his loyalties lie. No, all Metatron can think of when he thinks of Archangels are big savage brutes who fight their family to save it from itself. Gabe’s always been the awkward egg, what with his moderate attachments to Lucifer (at best) and his dirty tricks, but to Metatron, he’s no less savage and opportunistic than Raphael trying to keep the throne.
Canon!Gabriel was okay to kill in the name of bettering humanity, but fighting to save his family from self-destruction? That got him killed, ya know. I doubt he’d be up for round two. In fact, his whole arc started because he ran from Heaven to avoid trying to fix his family in any fashion, violently or peacefully.
I believe that he’d want Cas to lead them to a safe place, but off into battle? It’s a complete contradiction of who he is and was.
You’d be pretty hard-pressed to convince me that he wouldn’t continue being a coward and running from this nonsense.
That’s fair to say too, yes. There’s a lot about Metatron’s Gabriel that’s off because that’s his depiction of him from what he knows/thinks about archangels (violent, brainless savages) as well as the Supernatural books.
For example, no, I don’t think Gabriel would put himself in the midst of danger to prove a point. He’s still an archangel with a powerhouse of Grace, Fallen or otherwise, to manipulate reality to his will. So that whole gas station scene could have gone very differently. He could have chosen not to reveal himself so directly to Castiel either (despite what I think in headcanon of their relationship). He could have very easily twisted and turned Castiel so far from the truth and still get his message across before finally saying ‘lol it was me all along’. (Unfortunately there probably wouldn’t be enough screen time to fit that along with the main plot arc of season 9 despite how cool that might have been.)
It’s also true that perhaps Gabriel doesn’t want to be violent. I say ‘fight’ or ‘defend/save’ in a very loose context where it can mean something aside from being physical as well as avoid conflict to save lives. However Gabriel also understands though that there’s a difference between Heaven bound Fallen angels and angels like he and Castiel who have had a chance to interact with the humans for a time. They understand purpose and self-motivation and free will where as the other angels don’t. So it’s no wonder why Gabriel, the last standing Archangel, could take charge.
However in the direction that the episode took, it is clear that Gabriel’s purpose was only to serve Metatron’s ‘message’ in the end. Ironically poetic.

IF YOU LIVED HERE YOU’D UNDERSTAND
I desperately need to understand
WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY
Was this scene cut from the movie??!!
Fucking christ, do you know what this would have done? What this would have meant to SO MANY people?? The truth of this is devastating. And to think it almost found it’s way into a DISNEY film??
The inclusion of this scene alone would have made it the greatest animated feature the company ever produced. Easily. And if you think that’s hyperbolic clearly you don’t understand.
No, really, if anyone knows why this was cut PLEASE let me know.
oh man WHY WOULD they cut this, this is so great, holy MOLY
It was clearly something the crew was very reluctant to get rid of if it made it all the way to rough-clean (and in a few scenes clean!), fully inbetweened animation. That is like, thousands and thousands of dollars and weeks (months?!) of labour. Maybe a reluctant producer decided they would alienate their white middle-class American audiences by making them feel “too guilty” and pressed them to drop it? It’s unfortunate, it’s one of the most honest accounts of racism in a Disney movie (which is why it’s believable that someone got uncomfortable and made a case to get it chopped)
Designing entertainment by committee for maximum marketability is probably the most heartbreaking process in Hollywood.
I’ve been seeing this around my dash and think it deserves some more recognition!
This shit is hilarious, too.
NO WAIT SHIT
I GET IT NOW
I GET WHY SHE WAS PHOTOGRAPHING TOURISTS AS A HOBBY
SHE WAS BEING FUCKING SATIRICAL AND OBJECTIFYING
IT’S NOT BECAUSE SHE’S A DUMB KID WITH A WEIRD HOBBY IT’S BECAUSE THEY DO THAT TO HER AND HER FRIENDS AND FAMILY LIKE SHE’S SOME KIND OF FUCKING THEME PARK CHARACTER AND SHE WANTS THEM TO KNOW HOW IT FEELS
HOLY FUCKING DICKS DISNEY WHY WOULD YOU CUT THIS
This scene would have made it so much better.
This actually made its way instead into those little Disney comic books they used to sell at Grocery stores, I remember this from one of the Lilo and Stitch comics in them
if you’re willing to throw away your entire relationship with your son/daughter because of their sexual preference you literally dont deserve to breed like what the fuck is wrong with some people
