Art by me.
And this comes from someone who DESPISED ppl who only drew fanart. But now I understand why they do it, because it simply is so fun to draw your favourite character. And if you combine it with anatomy studies and other art exercises, then you can still improve your painting/drawing skills. As long as you still feel creative with your stuff.
Motorcity made me more interested in drawing cars and other stuffI usually never draw. And my personal drawing style has improved greatly and is much more varied now.
Titmouse is the animation studio that are the creators of the show Motorcity, which airs on Disney XD. If you haven’t checked out that show, then do it. It has such a great diversity among the characters, and a lot more stuff.

Oh my thank you!
I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU MEAN I mean omg I used to be so ANTI-fandom/fanart really! But the main reason for that is because you more or less get tired of your friends talking about something you have no interest of personally - and you have a hard time understanding why it’s so awesome. I guess this goes for any fandom really. And considering how much I’ve loathed fandoms/fanart of vocaloid/Kingdom Hearts/Hetalia/Homestuk/Naruto etc etc, it must take A WHOLEFUCKING LOT for me to actually get hooked into any show this much. I actually never really thought I would get into Motorcity this much.
I think that the thing with fandoms in general is that they actually help you expand your creativity within a certain area - it might be a good start for SOME artists - it all depends on how you interpret the inspiration you get from the show really, I have SO MANY PLOTS ready in my mind that are motorcity related - and I usually SUCK at plots and main storyline telling tbh - but I could honestly just take the prompt, change the names of the characters, and make it into my own story. Which I actually am planning to do, or something…
The thing fandoms and fanart can be a good thing for is for things such as practising anatomy, facial expressions etc; if you have a interest and a passion for a certain character in a show, and see SO MUCH POTENTIAL STUFF in that character, then just write or draw all that stuff down. Because your passion, ideas and interest in that specific character will work as a motivator for your creativity.
That’s what I’ve learned from motorcity and it’s fandom - a fandom can work as a “universal muse” for your creativity and ideas. This is something I did not understand before I got into any kinds of fandoms.
Seriously, my anatomy have improved so fucking much thanks to drawing motorcity/citymotor-porn and fanart - and I’ve had so much fun while doing so (which is probably the biggest reason why I’ve improved so fast - I’ve enjoyed doing it so much that I continue doing).
so I do not feel that I’ve lost or wasted time of this. And I think that the whole universe of motorcity is veeeery exploitable (posta-apocalyptic, takes place in detroits “only” 150 years into the future etc 1984 references and a lot more) it gives you a very good “template” to use.
And I think that whatever you see in a show or a fandom that you enjoy - as long as it helps you improve and bring fruit to new ideas, then it is worth contributing to.
The only thing I try to avoid is drawing 10000% motorcity, I’ve lately started to draw other things as you’ve probably seen. Although I’ll still draw a lot of motorcity, it’ll still be only one season sadly. So I won’t go on with it forever, and I honestly think it’ll be a loooong time til I find something that catch my interest just as much as this who has done to me. Because, trust me, I am very very picky when it comes to spend time watching tv-shows.
And if you’re Joan Watson from “Elementary,” you get in the way of male/male pairings on shows that you’re not even on (“Sherlock”).
Sorry for taking so long to give the specifics for the Motorcity Recap Party but it’s finally available! Here are the details :
- On Thursday, October 11th (TODAY!) the stream will officially be starting @ 6pm EST/ 5pm CST/ 4pm GST /3pm PST
- The showing will be located RIGHT HERE! It is currently password protected and will remain so until it’s closer to show time.
And really that’s it! We’ve bumped the time back by an hour since there was an overwhelming amount of people mentioning that they would be ‘just a little late’. Hopefully this time change will make it so that more people are able to be there for the very start of the stream!
SPREAD THE WORD AND WE HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
This is TONIGHT!!
For Europeans this starts around 11pm GMT
OH GREAT ALL THE FUN STARTS AT MIDNIGHT AT MY PLACE. AND I WAS GONNA GET UP EARLY TOMORROW.
I hate timezones so much right now.
Concerning the target demographic issue…
After speaking with my fellow co-admin, it seems there’s been a terrible misconception among some of our tumblr Motorcitizens regarding the recent target demographic epidemic…
You see now, older audiences still matter; their views are still counted no matter what - it’s just that the intended target demographic (6-11 year-old children,) matters.. well, more.
So, fellow peeps and motorcitizens should keep watching and supporting the show if they can! Just… try your best to get the kids interested in it, now will ya? Disney sure does like the surprise bonus of older viewers, but they want the kids to show interest too - y’know, for the potential merch and whatnot, probably.
So just think of all of the new, little mini-burners earning potential fun bucks for becoming new fans! Or Duke dollars. Or Kane Cash. Whatever the heck tickles your fancy.
All in all, I’m makin’ it your duty to go out there and get your little brother interested in the show! Or your little sister! Or your niece, nephew, younger cousin, friend’s siblings or what have you - just give them a go into watching the show! (Preferably around the age range 6-11, ahem… but now I’m just repeating myself.)
Oh, and make sure to ask their parents if they have a nielsen box too, if possible. And no, there aren’t any little cyber-cameras attached to them in order to figure out your age. And no, Big Brother Kane
or Duke isn’t watching you through their holographic monitors either, much to your personal dismay…
But they know who’s watching what because Nielsen households report info about the members in their little household, and that includes the age group of those living within the said household. And then those tiny Nielsen home units “transmit” and report the watched programs through a connected phone line. That’s how it works, you see.
So yeah! Keep watching - your view always counts, regardless of the circumstances! Remember that you - we - will never, EVER be left out of the big picture. BUT - Also remember that kids count too. Err, count more.… Err.. a lot more. You get the idea.
I just love this blog’s posts.
motorcity fandom…what are doing to Claire
I have notice that people have left her out or turn her into some kinda bitch in there fanfictions.
this is very true.
Fandom I am dissapoint. Do not make Claire into a bitch just because she happen to be a bit more feminine and is not that into living in motorcity.
I’m not entirely done with this meme, I have one more page to draw the characters, and another where I wanna add some grayscale tones.
But this one is my absolute favourite. I just love Texas so much right now as a character haha.
This meme btw, is very very very VERY good practise when it comes to expand your facial variations.
Blank meme can be found here: Link!

JUST LET ME FUCKING WATCH LEGEND OF FUCKING KORRA
Dude srsly. Nick.com doesn’t show episode four in my country. (RACIST)
I’m trying so hard to join a fucking fandom for once, and it’s like impossible to even watch the goddamn show. Could someone provide me a fucking link that works, I just wanna watch episode 4 and 5 sdfbklhadgbdkfhgahdghfj
unpopular opinion: I’ve always seen Hetalia as a weeaboo anime
So I don’t understand how people get so surprised by that reblog I did.
I mean seriously. All anime that gets a large fanbase will more or less be classified as “weeaboo” since when it’s getting very popular, it’s also getting very annoying.
capri-cious replied to your post: Just wanna thank you all fans out there who spoiled the whole Sherlock Holmes series before I even started considering watching the series.
Even if the entire series was spoiled, I still think you should watch it. It’s so awesome, and actors are simply amazing!
Well, I dunno. From what I’ve seen of all the gif’s on tumblr is all they do is being gay to each other. Where is all the crime investigatin’ and stuffs dudes. All they do it being gay gay gay withut kissing and gayness.
And no really, I don’t wanna watch a series knowing where and when the character dies. It’s one thing knowing if they WILL die and WHEN then will die. It’s like I knew that L in death note was going to die, but when I was reading one of the volumes, my friend more or less said “OH IT’S THAT VOLUME WHEN L DIES :D”.
I still have a hard time forgetting her for doing that. >:(
and no, I don’t wanna start seing it. I’ve seen enough of it through people’s posts. (THAT NEVER IS TAGGED SO I SORT OF CANNOT TUMBLR SAVIOR IT)
I just…. .__. I hate fandoms for these reasons. I blacklisted “harry potter” because I was tired of seeing gifs of characters when they die and so. I hate people so much.
rina-ran replied to your post: I hear the title around the place, but don’t know what it’s about or…what it even is really. A novel? a comic? how to book? Absolute 0 knowledge about this.
It’s a webcomic drawn in MS Paint more or less. The concept is more a little like those old games were you click around the surrounding to find clues and such. Apparently the readers sends in suggestions on what’s going to happen next and so on.
Awesome concept, but awful fandom.
However, the FANDOM has given me a totally different picture. It’s a long way until you actually see those emos with yellow horns (YES THEY ARE EMOS WITH HORNS SHUT UP FANTARDS) and i certainly don’t see the thing with all the pairings… I just find it so utterly sad when I follow a artist for their awesome and original art and then suddenly ALL they do is draw fanart of the same fandom. It’s just sad.
I just get the same irritation as when KH was popular on dA :’D
