Deadpool debuted as a stock villain in New Mutants #98 in 1991 and was not given his own series until 1993’s four-part series The Circle Chase; between these two milestones, in Deadpool’s 9th ever appearance, is the first time we see Deadpool flirt with the man in Nomad #4
I sort of taught myself how to do this by trial and error when I was making the latest page of my webcomic. I felt it might be useful to share. Thanks for looking!

Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don’t - I have a lot to learn), I’m not sure I could communicate them effectively. I’ve gathered some thoughts and ideas here, though, in case they’re helpful.
First, some general things:
WHY NOT HAVE BOTH
I made some teas! I had a lot of fun putting them together so I figured I would share C:
Labels feature either my own artwork, or art by the lovely katyamola~ and used with her permission. (Flat colors are mine, fancy tiny robots are hers)
Duly Appointed Tea- An earl grey with vanilla cream and caramel undertones, the flavor changes drastically depending on how black you steep it, if you add milk, or if you overload on cloves. I personally try to keep three or less to a serving. One of my favorites c:
Cocky Captain- A spicy mate with cherry and ginger, with a bit of rose hip added. Vibrant! Don’t oversteep it or this tea turns quite bitter.
Hippie Samurai- A chocolate Chai with a bit of almond and a high dose of hibiscus. It’s a little bit unconventional, but tasty if you’re in the camp of people who like hibiscus.
Rossum’s Trinitea, a black tea with vanilla, hibiscus, strawberry and cinnamon! Recently rebalanced.
Memory- Orange Spice, chocolate chips, and hazelnut mocha mate! A bit of a wake-up tea. Another one that really shouldn’t be oversteeped, but can be rescued with milk.
Rewriter- THE BEST DAMN CHAI I’VE EVER HAD. Thai chai (a blend with coconut, cardamom, and lemongrass) with vanilla and cinnamon to balance it all out. If you like chai at all, you will probably really enjoy this.
Lost Time- A white tea with blueberry, pear, and white peach. Blueberry is a bit predominant but the pear and peach add a nice subtle note.
Ancient Warrior- A green earl grey tea, with rhubarb and raspberry! The rhubarb is supposedly being discontinued soon, so I’ll have to redo this one sometime. But for now, RHUBARB.
Doctor’s Orders- Masala Chai (ginger, clove, cardamom) with sour apple and rose. I really like chai.
Therapy- A black tea with vanilla and caramel, plus “gingerbread,” a blend of spices and orange peel.
I’ve tried all but three of these, which are on their way, and the rebalanced rossum, also on its way. But they’ve all been pretty good so far UuU
yes, i am for real: i just spent 4 hours developing a real life MASS TAG REPLACER SCRIPT!
it’s going to be buggy, but i’ve tested it and it works! nothing terrible has happened to me yet! i hope it works for you too!! (◡‿◡✿)

Disney vs. 7 early fairytales
The 1812 version of Snow White is even worse when you consider that the girl was only seven years old in the tale (plus her unconscious body ended up being carted around by the prince until one of his servants accidentally woke her up). Also, in The Little Mermaid, the mermaid’s unable to speak because she had her tongue cut out >__<
But I’d love to see faithful adaptations of the original tales. Especially Bluebeard. We need a Bluebeard adaptation.
Actually, the original-original pre-Grimm Brothers’ stories that were passed around Europe via oral tradition are nowhere near as violent as the Grimm’s made them. Cinderella’s stepsisters were never ugly and kept their eyes, Snow White’s mother was not even a villain (instead a group of bandits were), and instead of spending the whole story napping Sleeping Beauty outwitted a dangerous bandit leader, wouldn’t let him sleep with her, and saved herself.
The original oral stories were radically changed by the Brothers Grimm to fit their personal and political beliefs. Most notably, they often added in female characters solely for the purpose of making them evil villains and took away most of the heroines’ agency and intelligence. Both brothers belonged to a small fanatical sect of Catholicism that vilified women because of the idea of Original Sin and Wilhelm in particular had a particularly deep hatred of women. The Grimms were actually pretty horrible people. Those cannibalistic queens and ugly stepsisters and the mass amount of violence against women didn’t exist until the Grimms wanted them to. Their ideas stuck so soundly though that we now assume they were in the original tales and that these terrible characters and ideas come out of some perceived barbaric Old World culture. But in truth they’re really the Grimms’ weird obsession with hating women showing through. The original oral folklore focused on the heroes’ and heroines’ good deeds and used them as ways to teach cultural norms and a society’s rules and encouraged girls to be quick-witted and street-savvy instead of passive princesses, and the Grimms promptly stripped that all away.
"Grimms Bad Girls and Bold Boys" by Ruth Bottingheimer is an excellent book on this
I can apply it to other things like TREES, SPIKEY THINGS, FUR, FEATHERS, EXPLOSIONS
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING
omg that lighter color thing
I never got it
mind = blown
