I swear I need a whole issue just Wade in NYC and everyone mistakes him for Spidey.
What I love is that Wade doesn’t disabuse the kid of her idea that he’s Spidey, he just plays along with it.

How to draw ‘the other eye’. Because people keep complaining.
The answer? You don’t draw a whole eye first.
You do it part by part, then make adjustments and add details as you please.
If you draw the whole eye first you’ll just stress over making the other eye as similar as possible. This way it’s also easier to adjust and correct.
Aside from that last step with the ‘transform’ tool, this also applies for traditional art.
Hope this helps!
THE WORLD MUST KNOW
So I watched this music video, and this is in fact completely untrue. There are many scenes in which black/brown girls are casted.
One could conceivably argue that any white star who features twerking in a music video is automatically being exploitative.
However, that was not my perception of this video in particular. It actually appeared to me the director took pains to portray a variety of dance styles (ballet, interpretive dance, rhythmic gymnastics, break dancing, twerking, cheerleading, etc.) all as equally valid art forms. Every performing group in the video includes a variety of ethnicities. I think I did actually see a black/brown dancer in the ballet troupe, though it’s difficult to tell. Look in the rear left of this gif:
We don’t know if they cast individual dancers or hired a dance troupe, so if black women are underrepresented that might say more about the dance troupe’s selection practices than the video director’s casting practices.
All the styles of dance, ballet or otherwise are presented in the same fashion — talented professionals being brilliant + Taylor Swift being endearingly incompetent. The black women in the video aren’t portrayed as Taylor’s dancing accessories, but rather as experts in their style:
Moreover, at the end of the video there’s a sequence showing all the different professionals being silly and dancing in a non-choreographed manner, thereby humanizing them, showing they exist outside of their role as dancers in Taylor’s video:
I think if we interpret the twerking scenes in this video as demeaning, that says more about our cultural perception of black women than it does about this particular video’s specific portrayal of black women.
Anonymous said: With all this fuss, I really and honestly think you might reconsider taking part of being a part of your own culture (((brown people's as you put it))) and show appreciation from afar. Only because you are extremly white-passing and therefore set a standard of beauty for others of your own culture to aspire to look like you even when you aren't the norm."
Now don’t get me mixed up, I know you’re brown and whatever but it would be extremely unfair that someone of your own race and culture has to deal with aspiring to be as white looking as you. It’s better to tone down your participation and semi-appropriation of the cultures as a means of letting other brown girls enjoy the culture and pride of being brown without haveing to measure up to your looks.
It is only for the time being thet I advise you to tone down your ethnic and cultural pride and saying you’re brown all the time. You’re just making it harder for other people to fully embrace their cultural significence because you aren’t really struggling in the sense of being marginalized by other people for wearing your traditional and cultural attire.
Okay this has been sitting in my inbox for a while and… I’m just gobsmacked by this.
I mean… Not only are you assuming things about me and my life, you’re trying to fucking forbid me from participating in cultures I fucking belong to because I don’t fit the brown girl look?
I don’t know why you think that there is anything such as “semi-appropriation” in me being A PART OF MY OWN CULTURE, RACE, AND HERITAGE.
Also you forgot that mixed people exist, you ignorant ass bitch.
