tumblrbot asked: WHERE WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO VISIT ON YOUR PLANET?
It’s this weekend…but we’re a little too busy to go. ;_;
“You get in any trouble out there, find yourself in a jam, you don’t hesitate to call us. ‘Cause we will hightail it out there and—”
“'Save me.' I know, Hal. You already have.”
The first and last scenes of Green Lantern: The Animated Series.
Two years ago today, I created greenlantern-tas. I had just gotten caught up in the first few episodes of an amazing story. I was looking around Tumblr, trying to find a community blog to watch for screenshots, gifs, news, discussion, etc and I was surprised that the wasn’t one. The live action movie’s poor reception and Tumblr’s DC Comics fandom (at least in the circles I ran in) hadn’t left a lot of room for anyone being willing to give a show about Hal Jordan a chance. The attitudes of 2D versus 3D animation weren’t helping matters either. Goodness were we ever so wrong. I’d fallen in love with the show, wanted to find more fans and promote the show to the circles of animation and superhero fans I was a part of. That was why I started the blog. Two years later — I’ve met some amazing people, including a few from the GLTAS crew; made some incredible friends; had a lot of wonderful discussions; laughed, cried, ranted, and found hope and inspiration in this epic tale; and seen and been a part of making some amazing fanwork. I’ve also learned a lot about the animation industry and how much it can break your heart when a show doesn’t get renewed. However, the fandom — THE FANTERNS — continue on. Because a fandom doesn’t end with the show, and the themes and messages are no less poignant and inspiring a year after the show ended, and I believe they’ll continue to be so a decade and more from now.
Being a part of the Fanterns has been and will continue to be amazing. Thank you all for that.
Now, with the self-indulgence out of the way. I’ve been running this thing for two years, and you guys have dealt with me well. I think that merits an anniversary giveaway. There will be 5 prizes. 4 of which are print issues of the GLTAS comics, #1, #4, #7, and #10 (my duplicates). The fifth prize will be a handmade mini Kilowog plush, pictured below.
In order to enter: You must be a US resident (or have a US address I can mail the prize to) and you must be 18 or older (legalese reasons). One entry per person. To enter, please send an ask telling us how you got into GLTAS. The winner will be chosen at random. Deadline for entries: May 11, 2014 at midnight PST.
Please reblog (feel free to cut out my excess commentary) to help advertise the giveaway.
I HAD NO IDEA YOU LIKED LOONATICS UNLEASHED!!!!:D
Wait, you’ve seen Loonatics Unleashed? Awesome! :DActually, at the time when I drew that picture, I had NEVER seen Loonatics Unleashed. (As a matter of fact, I don’t know all of the cartoons illustrated in that picture. I drew most of the characters because I knew that they were more of his iconic roles. The ones that I’m unfamiliar with are: Animaniacs, Biker Mice From Mars, Danny Phantom and Mighty Max.) About a couple of weeks after I drew that picture, however, I decided to watch an episode Loonatics Unleashed (because one of my bestest friends really likes it and asked that I give it a try). I did, and I was surprised to find that I really enjoyed it.
I have seen about 4 other episodes since then… So yeah, I’m a fan. ;D

Oh really? That’s cool! ^^ I always love seeing how people envision how they think the turtles would look in a humanoid way. I wouldn’t doubt it if Donnie resembled Hiccup a little… ;)

TONY WHAT ARE YOU DOING TONY GET OFF THE KIDS SWING TONY THATS A BAD IDEA
so in character I just
Can I just .. Tony never had a childhood so .. he was never taught how to use a swing properly and just .. now I’m sad.
Why would you say that?
Here, something to cheer us up:
I finally got around to coloring it… Yay!
I hope you enjoy~!
April O’Neil and Casey Jones from TMNT (2012). AKA, Orange Juice.
Yes, I’m still trying to make that ship name stick. Bwahahaha….
Oh are we naming the ships now? I remember some of the old HP ones.
So Apritello is Orange Grape…?
Umm did I get that right lol
Na, ummm I’d have to think for Apritello and for is there a thing at all for Irma and Mikey?
Actually, I keep calling them “Orange Juice” because their last name initials (O’Neil and Jones) are O. J. which as we all know is an abbreviation for Orange Juice.
Not to mention her hair is orange. So calling their ship name Orange Juice kinda fit to me. xD
I don’t think Apritello has any other ship name. I know that some people call them Pizza Gyoza. (After all, "Sometimes things that don’t seem like they should go together actually make a great couple!")
As for Mikey and Irma…I don’t know what theirs is. Or if they even have one yet! However, I do feel like we could play off of her last name: Langinstein.
I mean, Mikey always gives himself a nickname with “Stein”, like: Doctor Prankenstein or Dr. Einstein…Enstein.
But again, I don’t know. xD We’ll come up with something eventually.
