@omni-triforcer I just looked back at the convo and I had come in late, someone posted Ruben's poster but I was talking about Will's
It's like a sitcom level of miscommunication, it's good man
Been a Ben 10 fan for as long as it's been around (over a decade now). You can find my art at supersketch1220.deviantart.com and clintb-art-on.tumblr.com, and you can follow me on Twitter @hawkkawaii_
@omni-triforcer The comic con poster for this year was done by Will Patrick, the poster you just linked to isn't even remotely close to Will, that's Ruben Procopio.
I'm in like three Discord chat's with you where I'be explained it's Will.
@Ebomnitrix I would say the most accurate and consistent looking ones are the Calendar one, the Dutch promo, and the model sheet one from the conference.
The very first one definitely is off model, so much so that they felt obligated to update it.
And don't worry, I think one of the Annacy descriptions said they'd be showing a clip, either from the show or a featurette on how it's made, but since it's more of a press thing I don't know if we'll get to see anything. Maybe they'll release it for us afterwards, who knows! Seems like it's picking up a little.
I actually did a style prediction a long while back when we got a good updated key art image and I'm surprised how unintentionally accurate it ended up being to this most recent one.
I actually almost thought someone traced mine and used it as a poster but the most recent one is official.
This one below is mine;
Heck, I even got the hair shine right without knowing beforehand.
@Tactical-Ochoa so basically my argument is invalid because I literally JUST started up on YouTube and I'm not going with the norm of criticizing something that people claim to know a bunch about but have seen exactly zero seconds of footage of? Gotcha
When I've posted on tumblr that I'm proud of what I've done with my video, I'm not claiming to be super famous or successful or popular or that I have a huge influence or following or something. I literally JUST started the channel and I'm working super hard balancing work and school and putting that channel together so it actually has consistent content. I recognize there are a lot more popular and successful channels that have done videos with negative inclinations towards the show they also have not seen and that I'm nowhere near them at the moment, but obviously my goal was to reach that level, and it is slowly climbing.
I was super hesitant about making this video because I recognize there are and always will be people who will go out of their way to find negative things to nitpick about in any spectrum, and you and others seem to embody that kind of stubbornness. And that's fine, you don't have to like it. Nobody's forcing you to, I'm certainly not.
Alternatively, what making it made me realize was that amidst those people that are unwilling to budge or be positive about it, there are much more than expected who are open-minded and willing to give it a fair chance and make a value judgement about it based on its actual content and not on track records or massive assumptions.
I realize the status quo, but there are two things one can choose to do when faced with it; either they accept it and do nothing, or they decide to make a change even if they are alone in that endeavor, and hope others will stand by their side.
I don't have tens and thousands of viewers, but when people who work on it have shared it and told me they appreciate what I do to try and help, and people who were once as skeptic as you message me and tell me their mind is changed, that's the only true success I could hope for.
Hope you change your view on things in the future. It's better on the bright side man.
@Tactical-Ochoa Its probably gonna take me a while to sift through that big chunk of text, but I would, for the moment being, like to point out that though every one of CN's shows is indeed made by CN and aired on CN, every show (even if some share execs) has a completely different production team. There are probably 10 to 12 shows of theirs that are produced in-house, meaning at the main studio, and all others are produced in other studios, all by separate individual production teams that have nothing more to do with each other than the fact that they work for CN.
So yeah, it kind of is a little unreasonable to be comparing a show you haven't seen yet to two other reboots that air on the same network with completely different production teams, one of which is not produced in the same studio as the other two. Although since all three are reboots of past CN properties involving superheroes and meeting mixed reactions, it's easy to understand the misconception.
I'd also like to point out that, since I've released the video, a lot more people have been coming out of the woodworks in favor of giving the reboot a positive chance and are actually pretty hyped. The point of the video was to kind of help people see the bright side of things, and I'm not quite sure you're speaking on behalf of as many people as you might think you are in terms of people being super fed up and being on the verge of boycotting CN.
I mean, I completely understand your hesitance towards a lot of things revolving around the reboot, and those feelings are entirely valid. However, you might be looking a little too hard into some things here.
Really hoping you'll give it a chance in the long run and that you'll grow to enjoy it in the future. Lots of love and hard work goes into it, and you might find you'll enjoy yourself a lot better if you loosen up and give something like this a try.
Here's to change!
