actually it’s the Alpha Guardians! there’s a clear setup to it :DDD so we’re goin from Cherubs to LE to Condesce to the Alpha session then we’re gonna go crazy anime and include the rest of the kids (this WAS kinda inspired by a KLK music video haha)
as an addendum to bananagrrl i just wanted to say that as someone who has a lot of trouble emoting and experiencing my emotions right, having a good cry over sad things is incredibly therapeutic for me its like unclogging a nasty stopped up pipe and i always feel so refreshed afterwards and your comics or waaaaaaaaaaay up there with just a few other things that really do the job right so thank you so much for that, thank you for helping me to feel the FEELS
aayyy you’re welcome, this is such a cool insight! ^u^
im not v good at making ‘amv-esque’ lyricstucks, and that’s a skill i admire and am attempting with the animation im working on. for me there’s gotta be a clear beginning, middle, and end. and the audience has to be able to follow the characters’ thoughts and motivations. the lyrics and the tone of the song needs to strengthen it.
sometimes the lyrics build the story. sometimes the story just builds itself into the song. this craft is very personal to me because im using the songs ive loved (and many times ive cried to), and the characters i admire and think deserve happiness. and thinking about my work this way makes me want to do it great justice,
I feel that it’s kinda a hit-or-miss with that, but it’s been more of a hit to get those feelings in. hopefully I can keep it up
reasons why im doing more epic ancestor lyricstucks than the main cast is probably because the kid’s arcs arent resolved yet in the webcomic. it’s easy to gleam themes and scenes from a finished story than an unfinished one. Plus their story is vague enough which makes it very convenient to craft it into songs with different themes.
so basically, until Homestuck ends or some major arc is run soon (thinking TZ), then I wont be able to make epic lyric story arcs. And would probably be limited to their relationships with their guardians because im a sucker for that kinda stuff
welp, I’ve been inevitably dragged down to another Mumford & Sons ancestor lyricstuck again, compliments of toastyhat (who im still not sure whether I should do the full song or only just part of it). Funny how I was working on I Will Wait at the same time last year…maybe we should make it a tradition.
I just wanted to set that the theme for this one is when it seems like all hope is lost, one carries on and does good things to the best of their ability, no matter the circumstances. Or the legacy of a good person lasts with good deeds. Hmmm…or even there is hope in living.
It can be cheesy yeah, haha. But it could also be something noble when portrayed the right way.
Hopefully you get the drift. :) I’ll try my best to juggle these themes while I work on it.

first possibility: quick fun one-verse lyricstuck to M&S song of your choice (I could trim the song for the audio post if needed) or, if that is too ridiculous! STREET FIGHTER TROLLS especially kanaya, kanaya the streetfighter with tattoos... maybe... >.>
hHHHHH toasty if I end up doing a whole nother M&S lyricstuck because of this you will take all the blame
i was just wondering if you had a kind of ownership over the term "lyricstuck" bc i was thinking about a homestuck drawing project to a song similar to what you do, and if that would be okay and if i should tag it as lyricstuck or not! though if it's your thing and you'd rather i don't borrow your idea, i understand!!! i just really love all your art and lyrcistucks especially, i find them really inspiring!!!
I do not! The term has existed long before I joined the fandom (though I’d like to think that I contributed much to its activity xux)
So by all means~ good luck and have fun! And thank you for your kindness.
I saw your post about a happy blog and I wanted to say that your blog does make me happy, but there is something else I want to say. I had a hard time in my senior year of high school and I would end up feeling really stressed and stopped up(?weird description), and I would always watch your doomed timeline lyricstuck and cry like crazy. It was extremely cathartic and one of the best stress reducing techniques I've ever used. I just wanted you to know that the sad stuff made me happier
this just—awes me. I’m so glad my art helped you out of your stress. I never knew it could work like this :o …wow
thank you so much for sharing, this is a truly wonderful insight
you might sort of be able to combine some of them (lineart/gesture, painterly/lighting) but it is an awful lot to focus on at once. maybe work on developing a more efficient process first so you can work on the other things faster?
Yooooo, that is a brilliant idea! *0* Thank you ohmuhguh, I want to try this out.
Like…whenever I do my daily gestures, I can spend extra time to clean up the lineart and make it pretty C8
