"As women, we are taught to be tiny. To have small bodies, to never be imposing. The ideal of our gender are thin and childlike, hairless and dainty. We are defined by our bodies; defined by our control over them. We are taught to obsess over our physicality and to be repulsed by our desires and intelligences.
We are taught to walk scared late at night. We cradle our keys between our perfectly manicured fingers, walking gracefully like a baby antelope in a herd of lions. That our virginity defines our character. That I am a frigid bitch if I do not fuck him, and a dirty slut if I do."
"I already saw that on Tumblr."

Hey. Hey you. Back the Shantae Kickstarter.
Here’s a little animation test I did for Shantae a year or so ago when I was at WayForward. We were coming up with a look for a high def gameplay Shantae sprite, adapted from her pixel sprite. Matt ultimately settled on a different design for the final look, but it’s fun to see some of the unused stuff from the archives. I’m fond of this bit of animation.
WayForward is currently running a kickstarter campaign for Shantae HD, by the way. It’s in its final week so go help out my dear old work buddies and help them reach their stretch goals! You KNOW you’d love to see more beautifully animated 2D cut scenes (see above gif) in modern games.
Tumblr is weird about gif length (even if it’s within the 1MB file size limit), so see the full loop here.
