Kind of a washed up hack, to be honest. I'm not even trying to shit on her for giving up her hiimdaisy days, but she seemingly traded in her personality in an attempt to be "that" cartoonist who pleases all the "good" people in the world without realizing she's a shitty person herself.
She may have talent as a painter, but if CQ is what she considers to be her magnum opus, something she's been working on since she was a child, her lifelong journey come to fruition.. The future doesn't look bright for her.
this response right here is why I'm afraid of doing a webcomic after having found a sustainable income through graphic design. There's a story i been making up since i was 7. I still think its hot, but I don't honestly think I could deliver it the way i want and then there's these people with the negativity because she opts for something serious. which is the tone i want to make mine. I know I should disregard that and just do me, but actually too sensitive for it. lul which is funny because i love harsh criticism in graphic design.
>>78846992 The reason a lot of people here hate Gigi has nothing to do with her comic. It has to do with her personality. There are people who hate her because she quit Hiimdaisy, those people are idiots, but they're not many. There are more fans of CQ than haters. Just do whatever. If you don't badmouth 4chan the babies won't get upset and start harassing you as well.
>>78841733 >>78846791 every artist wants a story where they completely own the characters, settings and everything. if they have popular parodies, then they are only as a fraction as popular as the thing they are parodying.
her hiimdaisy comic were only good since the games she based them on were absolutely crazy to some degree.
now when she writes her own story, all the characters and plot seems completely stupid and inept because she still writes it like a hiimdaisy comic, but without a well known videogame to back it up
>>78848268 >>78848322 Even if you wanted to find them again, good luck. Her photos and videos tab on twitter is filled to the brim because she spams so many screenshots and youtube videos. It'd take you a month of scrolling to go back that far.
>>78846992 >why I'm afraid of doing a webcomic You and half of the internet, anon. This board is filled with people posting excuses of why they haven't drawn a single page. Stop whining about what will happen when you become popular. It will not happen.
>>78848779 >Stop whining about what will happen when you become popular. It will not happen.
This this this You absolutely cannot go into it expecting success Content creation is about what you want of it, not what others will think of it. Check out the How's Your Webcomic thread. If you truly believe in your story, then carry it out.
>>78849172 Well race is a lie. If someone is a combination of white and black what are they? Plus there's no actual definition for races and there are way way more "races" than we even talk about. Some people consider Italians to be non-white but if they're not what are they?
>>78847740 I'm like 90% sure people send her threads exactly like this one, so it comes across as if the 4chan hivemind is actively going out to upset her.
Which isn't true, but there are literally shitposters everywhere who ruin things for the majority. Like that time /lit/ got a crush on an amateur book reviewer and then someone sent her the thread, which predictably was lightly peppered with posts about how they wanted to savagely fuck all of her holes.
She's just constantly buttmad that her "magnum opus" isn't nearly as well received as her old parody comics.
Didn't she get into some sort of row with the guy who dubbed the Persona comics because he said he didn't like CQ? And of course there was that temper tantrum when she deleted them all. She's just been having a temper tantrum for like four years.
>>78851883 I remember. Then they stopped getting replies because nobody gave a shit about the comic. Hell I dropped it a while back.
Then she said she doesn't like 4chan so people make threads about Gigi herself instead of the comic but those get 300+ replies because both sides start talking mad shit since we get to talk about a person rather than a comic.
It's the same thing that happened with Paranatural. Creator says they don't like 4chan so now every thread is filled with "you just don't like a comic because the creator doesn't like 4chan" or "how can you like this comic the creator doesn't like 4chan they're clearly an SJW". It's hard to divorce a creator from their work when they're a crazy asshole douche like B^U but if the worst things you can say is they don't like my weeb image board big deal.
With that said even Paranatural (despite my opinion it's going to shit) gets threads every update because there's something there to talk about. For good or bad and no matter how polarizing there is shit to talk about.
Cucumber Quest just got boring. So boring that you can't have threads last more than twenty replies unless you get the shitposters fighting about gigi herself.
>>78855128 >You think the asteroid belt gives a fuck about your melanin content?
No, but it doesn't have to live down here with us either. Race exists, and humans are going to care about it regardless of whatever else goes on the cosmos. "Race is a social construct" and "I don't even see race" are the biggest lies that could ever come out of someone's mouth.
>>78850052 >Like that time /lit/ got a crush on an amateur book reviewer and then someone sent her the thread, which predictably was lightly peppered with posts about how they wanted to savagely fuck all of her holes.
>>78855583 >Tell that to literally anyone else since apparently nobody gives a remote fuck about it anymore. Nobody even makes threads and the three people on /co/ that read it probably dropped it before it got interesting or won't enter a thread they know will be about shitposting.
Real talk? Cucumber Quest's whole "oh we're a videogame plot but it's actually super meta and shit and the programming is part of the lore and all these archetypical rpg characters are being forced to do their role because it's meta, you guys" thing?
Undertale did it better. Cucumber Quest kind of has no reason to exist when Undertale stole its thunder so fucking hard and really got to the point way faster cause, hey, turns out plots with videogame mechanics as a central point? way better in an actual videogame.
>>78858370 >Come on man, some of the strips were pretty funny but it's not like she left a classic piece of masterwork literature that'll forever haunt humankind unfinished. Quite the opposite. This is true. On the other hand, a Big Mac is still better than plain rice.
>>78840288 >What does /co/ think of gigi? Gigi as a human? I try to not to associate with her, I don't read her tweets or what she feel like she has to voice and opine on whatever topic is. Having to dissociate Gigi artist from Gigi actual public persona make reading CQ all the more tolerable.
Gigi as a webcomic artist? I liked earlier Cucumber Quest, now it feel like it is at a standstill of some sort. I love Peridot, however.
>>78846992 >this response right here is why I'm afraid of doing a webcomic You were never meant to make a webcomic or the story you thought up when you was young.
Artists in any media have their fair share of hatred as much as they are liked.
You need to have dragon skin and accept criticism rather it is negative or positive, hell, it's like walking through life, anon. I am sure you had those who hated you and vocalize their opinion toward you, right? What did you did wangst and sit in a corner and isolated yourself or continue to trudge through the heat of those who hated you with your head held high showing no sign of resignation? Unfortunately for you, you likely selected the former and you choose the safest path - graphic designer.
Basically, you're a whimsical, pansy, lilliputian faggot of a human.
>>78858768 >you likely selected the former and you choose the safest path - graphic designer.
Not him, but hey man, why you gotta be like that, I'm just trying to make ends meet. I WISH I had a graphic design job, at least then I'd be doing something remotely illustrative instead of packing shit into boxes and working on art on the side.
Why you gotta do me like that, bruv, for real, you're saying my aspirations in life aren't even aspirations, but lowest of the low shit only losers pick.
>>78859633 >instead of packing shit into boxes and working on art on the side. M8. That is how all artists - webcomic/professional, animators, illustrators, etc cetera., start off.
They accept part time jobs or questionably odd jobs to meet ends meet while they work on their art on the side. If you have the determination to not resign and not give up, continue to work on your art until you feel the need it is time to make yourself known to publicize what you've made over that duration you were working. Afterall, one career doesn't peek until their thirties, or so the saying goes.
>>78859870 >especially with how amazingly gay it sounded. Thanks, anon. I couldn't stop getting a hardon from reading Tolkien and wanted my words to sound poetic as the master.
>>78855182 >Creator says they don't like 4chan so now every thread is filled with "you just don't like a comic because the creator doesn't like 4chan" or "how can you like this comic the creator doesn't like 4chan they're clearly an SJW". This is incorrect. What Zack said was >People who browse 4chan like my comic? >Man, I need to fix that it means I'm not inserting my agenda hard enough https://twitter.com/paranaturalzack/status/480506058944040960
As somebody who hasn't yet read Paranatural but was ( and still am ) very much interested in reading it this turned me off. I'd be worried that I'd get half way through reading it only for it's focus to shift from making a good story first and other elements second to adding DIVERSITY first and other elements second. Because 4chan totally hates black people rather than tokenism, rite guise? And it's obvious that 4chan also hates gay people! I'll make two girls kiss! That'll sure piss them off!
I get what you're saying about the "I don't like 4chan" dogpiling. But the situation with Zack isn't really the same.
>>78862792 >Because 4chan totally hates black people rather than tokenism, rite guise? And it's obvious that 4chan also hates gay people! I mean. Yeah. It sort of does. /pol/ ain't exactly anything new, and it's not like /pol/ wasn't just /b/ 2.0. Nothing said there is wrong.
>>78863245 But if /pol/ makes 4chan as a whole hate gay people then, by the same logic, /lgbt/, /y/, /u/ and a fucktonne of assorted threads elsewhere will then, by extension make 4chan as a whole love the homo-ies.
Any sort of logic where you have to go "but /pol" or "but /b/" when talking about the 4chan community is inherently flawed. Not only that but then it fails to account for the tongue-in-cheek stuff. I'd put good money on the amount of genuine gay and racial hate on 4chan being rather low comparatively.
But obviously everyone on 4chan loves my little pony. Hell, /mlp/ exists. Sterling logic.
>>78862895 >This is how the average woman will react if she sees a thread from a bunch of neckbeards talking about raping her and stuff. Maybe the average woman should just stay off the internet then. Seriously, grow a skin and take it as a joke or compliment.
>>78863541 > /int/ doesn't even have a black general up. >Black people don't have a board dedicated to black culture thought. Because they can talk with the rest of us and the culture isn't really much different? I don't see how segregating the discussion into black stuff and white stuff would make it 'less racist'. What would there be to talk about?
> 4chan is racist to blacks by default. Sick dank memes aside and outside of /pol/, /b/ and /r9k/? Not really. You don't really see black people torn down or apart on 4chan simply because they're black people.
Unless you want to start trivialising racial hate by asserting that joking and facetious statements are the same as genuine hate. In which case: No.
>>78863837 >Leaks without consequence What do you even mean by this? What do you propose the consequences of this are? Send the cops to their house? Or ban them, like that will do anything. Not to mention that, user side, you don't see the vast majority of action being taken.
But you're right. Sometimes people bring /pol/ stuff outside of /pol/. This is usually followed by a strong 'fuck off back to /pol/' reaction.
>>78846992 No one shits on Gigi because she wants to do a "serious" webcomic. People shit on her because she removed all traces of her earlier stuff, lambasted anyone who preferred that to her current work, and all around takes criticism like a petulant child
plenty of people run webcomics and aren't gigantic cunts about it, nobody really shits on them
>>78855190 I'm >>78849319 AND not an asshole. Race doesn't exist, man. There's no breeds of humans. Do you honestly believe the shape of your nose or the fullness of your lips has more to do with our behavior than our environment? Race matters no more than we believe it to, and sadly we believe it matters A LOT.
>>78855128 And hey, I'm not an asshole in any way. Fuck you, and your asteroid belt comment makes no sense. You think jupiter gives a fuck about your homework? Doesn't mean you don't have to do it.
>>78864071 >his is usually followed by a strong 'fuck off back to /pol/' reaction.
The real problem is that grouping all of us together with /pol/ is quite reasonable, since every board on this website is exactly one click away from any other board. So you either define the average 4chan poster by the shit you see most often, which is unfortunately a bunch of /pol/ and /b/, as a bunch of schizophrenics or the most sensible choice, you don't.
>>78864645 Most of THIS EXACT THREAD is not like /b/ or /pol/ at all. The word nigger has appeared ZERO times before this post, do you know what kind of fucking achievement that would be on /pol/? 166 posts without the word nigger? And if it were /b/ people would be either posting gore or their girlfriend's nudes, so no. This isn't like /pol/ at all. Most of 4chan just doesn't give a fuck about racism because it has NOTHING to do with the topic at hand. Why would /m/ give a shit about racism? It's not about racism it's about ROBOTS and shit.
4chan, fortunately, isn't racist by default. It's just very, very diverse. And a lot of those "diverse" people are racist, but they're not the whole 4chan and never will be.
>>78864101 She deleted where the comics were stored after telling everyone she would do it so she could save them. You can still find them.
>>78864071 >You don't really see black people torn down or apart on 4chan simply because they're black people. You do a lot. At least I do. It's usually not totally serious but there's really not much difference. Unless you want to say that casual jokes about monkeys and stuff like that is not racism. Joking racism is still racism. There's a reason 4chan is called the butthole of the internet. That doesn't look good to a normal person who believes you shouldn't make those jokes.
>>78840288 >expunged all traces of Hiimdaisy and her old psuedonym as Peachifruit >There was that Kirby incident where Tumblr made her leave for good >Hate 4chan like a bitter old divorcee Gigi, in my eyes, is a great humourist.
