And first character done! I meant to keep these (somewhat) low effort, but then I found myself actually doing renders so I guess that's what the lineup will be now.

Media criticism terminology hot take Show more
"Tropey" is not a valid criticism. It's barely a step above saying a work "uses tropes"; both of these just demonstrate you don't know what the fuck a "trope" is and are just using it as a synonym for "cliche".
To quote TV Tropes: "A trope is a storytelling device or convention […] They are not bad, they are not good; tropes are tools that the creator of a work of art uses to express their ideas to the audience."
From a podcast promo at the end of today's Today Explained: "The latest episode is on tech addiction so if you're finding yourself at like one in the morning binging Instagram stories and feeling more alone than ever, take a listen: Pivot, from the Vox Media podcast network"
More for the "ephemeral 'Stories' are a way to compel you to keep engaging with the app" pile. Guess I'll be checking this pod out.

@noelle This is well stated and a key point to understand for developers whose first instinct is usually to look to innovate or do things "better".
That's a great trait and something we should celebrate.
But as you said, accessibility isn't about innovation, usually. It's about implementing easy-use features. If you're going to "innovate" on accessibility (and I hope more devs will!) it needs to include active development/feedback from the users that will need the accessibility feature.
An #underlining data point: part of accessibility is consistency. You might not like how underlined links work, but underlining has been the default link indicator in web browsers for 25 years, and people understand that underlined text on a web page means a link.
No, "we've always done it that way" is not generally a good reason to keep doing something - but when you're talking about accessibility and comprehensibility, "because I want to" isn't a good reason to change something either.

I haven't nailed down a backstory yet since even if I use this dude it won't be for like a month, but I'm poking at options. I don't usually color lineart like this because it takes forever and I just can't decide if I like it. :Ta
Devaluing pedophilia thru fandom 1/2 Show more
And a person in their early 20s being in a relationship with someone 16-18 is not ducking pedophilia. Is it kinda weird and more often than not very predatory and often times taking advantage of enough of an age gap to manipulate someone still growing? Yes. But it ain't pedophilia. Especially when it's a fucking SHIP.
