  • A revisit of Ben and Julie's relationship

    alt text

    I came across this bit of info recently and it's interesting that this was a thing. Staff members that worked on UAF being so dead set on the Ben/Julie relationship that they resort to this. Unsurprisingly, that little stunt didn't work, because of course it wouldn't. Of course, Cartoon Network wouldn't care.

    Derrick J. Wyatt was right though. I get that Omniverse breaking up Ben and Julie was done poorly, but it really was for the best. The set up for their relationship was rushed and Ben and Julie's relationship really did have little to no chemistry. Julie was not interesting and engaging and Ben was a jerk and an idiot to her. It felt like an unnecessary relationship done just for the sake of having Ben be in a relationship. Julie's purpose was to be a satellite love interest to Ben and it's the UAF crew's fault for not making that relationship good and well-executed.

    If people like the Ben/Julie relationship, more power to them. It still baffles me though that people willingly support it and were so up in arms over their break up. Ben and Julie breaking up really was for the better and if anything, it would've been better if Ben wasn't in a relationship in UAF to begin with.

    Granted, it's not like Ben and Kai's relationship was any better though. That relationship had its own set of caveats that made it terrible as well. I certainly think that Derrick J. Wyatt and the Omniverse crew were in the wrong for pairing Kai up with Ben, handling their relationship quite poorly.

    I already mentioned these videos before, but I again recommend checking out these videos by Sarcastic Chorus. They do an excellent, if not perfect, job of going in greater depth on why Ben's relationships with Julie and Kai didn't work.

  • Ben 10,000 Redesign - Version 2 Commission

    Yesterday morning, Mateusboga finished up another commission for me. This one is another version of the redesigned Ben 10,000 commission that the artist made for me a few years ago. This version covers a Ben 10,000 that's more of a closer reflection of the Ben 10,000 from the Ben 10,000 episode of the Original Series in regards to him being a shell of his former self.

    This artwork has also been added to the gallery of all my Ben 10 commissions as well. If anyone is interested in checking out the other stuff that Mateusboga made for me, here's the link to it.

    Feel free to check out Mateusboga's other works as well and even give him a follow. He continues to make some great artwork and deserves more attention and support for it.

  • Teenage Gwen Tennyson Edits by Chillguy

    This artist made edits of teen Gwen's designs from UAF and OV to match closer to the OS art style. I'm not much of a fan of Gwen's designs from UAF and OV. I find that her UAF designs look bland to me (her AF season 3 design looks better though), but the biggest issue overall for me is that none of her teenage designs suits Gwen as a character. As I said, her UAF designs look bland to me and for her OV design, I don't see Gwen as the type of person that would intentionally make herself look like a geek. However, while still not a fan of them, I will say that the designs do look better when the art style is closer to that of the Original Series. These edits do make Gwen look more like, well, Gwen. It also feels like there's more expressiveness and character to her, thus making her AF design shown here look less bland.

    If anyone is interested, the artist behind these edits is linked below as well as the source of where I found these edits.

  • Gwen Tennyson Redesign by Dylan R. Fagan

    I recently came across this fan made artwork of a redesigned teen Gwen and this has to be one of the best teenage Gwen Tennyson designs I've seen yet. While I think it could use a wardrobe change though, I also think this look suits her so well. It really fits her Original Series personality quite well and feels much more fitting for her than her official teen designs from Alien Force, Ultimate Alien, and Omniverse.

  • Edit of Ben 10,000 without his beard

    Recently, I saw this post on the Ben 10 subreddit where someone edited Ben 10,000's beard out. It honestly doesn't look too bad. The first image shown here does kind of look a little weird to me, but I think the second image does look better. I still prefer my commission redesign of Ben 10,000 more, but these still look pretty decent.

  • Omniverse establishing Ben's original future

    Thinking back to this aspect of the show, it's quite surprising to me that Omniverse went the most ham on the whole multiverse concept, and yet tried to establish the future shown in the Original Series as Ben's "true future".

    Granted, that's not something that I buy into. One, the sequel shows did so much retconning that it was nonsensical to establish that the future shown in Omniverse is the same future from the Original Series. There's too many holes with that and no, the "time constantly shifting" excuse doesn't work. That is a dumb and lazy excuse there. Two, the whole point of the Ben 10,000 episode was that it changed Ben's future. Ben and Gwen experiencing that future was supposed to act as a warning to convince them NOT to go down that same path. While I do think it's good that Omniverse tried to be more like the Original Series, this is an example of Omniverse course correcting too much back to said original show.

    I think it is smart for the Ben 10 Planet Wiki to call that out and address the issues with Omniverse's attempt to bring back the original future. Although, I also don't buy into Ben's future changing because he gave Max a cake. That's just something that I find to be dumb.
