THIS is what a men’s rights activist should be.
Soooo… this is it :) I finally finished my latest sketch with incredible Lana Parrilla.
I used mostly soft 6B pencil with addition of hard 2B pencil for deatils (like eyelashes, eyebrows,hair and lips). In the end I used also white gel pen for deatils on her feather earing… but honestly I was affraid to use it more than for a few dots and lines :/ I’ve also made a little experiment in the begining when I smudged pencil all over the the paper to make it light grey. Thanks to that trick I had easier to “uncover” the shadows with simple eraser and more smudging :D
In conlusion… This drawing is in A4 format & it took me around a week (2-3hrs a day) from main sketch - to “finish” line & I’m very happy how it turned out… :)
I would love to hear Your opinion? :)
When he leaves you to die of starvation in an inescapable prison cell while he brings an evil murderess to your son’s town
JKT Countdown to Once Upon a Time
Emma left Hook on top of the beanstalk because she could not trust him. When she met him, he lied to her, and she then found out he had aided and abetted in Cora’s mass murder of villagers who had accepted Hook as one of their own. He lay beneath their corpses in an attempt to manipulate the Princess Quartet into feeling sorry for him. How could Emma possibly trust Hook? She wanted to get a headstart. She asked the giant to babysit Hook for a few hours while she got away, and reassured Hook that he would not be harmed. Emma had no intention of indirectly killing him. This was not really a betrayal.
In retaliation, however, Hook left Emma and her friends to die of thirst and starvation while he brought a sociopath to a town full of innocents. He even called Emma a dried up, dead, useless person. Hook’s vengeance was grossly disproportionate to the slight. He has not apologized for his actions in the present either.
It’s kind of funny to me now that they commit every single logical fallacy in the book. That one is called “appeal to authority”. The fact of the matter is that the writers write and say some highly problematic things. They romanticize Hook spying on Emma, asking for a sexual reward (this is sexism), objectifying Emma (this is misogyny), making rape threats (they dismiss this as innuendo), and so on. Kitsis gave an interview that heavily implied that Hook thought he was entitled to Emma. He said something along the lines of: “I think he’s getting frustrated because it’s like, ‘The whole world can’t resist my charms; why is the one woman I’m chasing playing hard to get?’” We have experiences that make us feel terribly uncomfortable and even abhorred by such acts, and we have the right to call bullshit on them.
