As a huge zombie and Resident Evil fan, I am really digging the direction the remake is going which includes the nitty gritty details like making Leon younger and the dialogue more natural. I also did some research on the big list of unused monsters and I am really hoping some of them will appear there. I might get it for the PC though. Last time Resident Evil did a remake (which was of the game that started it) it was a masterpiece and recently, RE really redeemed itself with it's last game. And for the first time in a while, the main enemy will be ZOMBIES again. RE is just not the same without zombies. Plus, I always really liked Claire Redfield. She was always so underrated I found.
Well, if you want to keep in tuned with the androgynous and slightly hipster look, you can go with them wearing old slogan shirts as a pajama top and brightly coloured jogging shorts as bottoms made of cotton kind of like a sweatshirt. That they would be baggy so the form is undefinable and so the PJs are comfortable.
If there's one thing I've learned from fans, you can't stop them from having fantasies. 99% of the R34 art out there is based on stuff that has nothing to do with Playboy yet fans make it anyway because that is just the way some people think especially when they are teenagers or have huge crushes. While there's some porn out there I consider as bad for good reason, I think if I ever found any porn, I would back button and say nothing.
However, I would step in kindly request a cease and desist if people started insisted my work had innuendos. It doesn't. I'm an extremely bashful and clean minded person. I don't even get into Playboy with real people. Heck, the most naked I ever got with characters was showing a rear end and it was only as comic relief. In other words, if people want to have a fantasy, I won't stop them as I have no right to, but I draw the line at claims that my work is pornographic because that is directed at me and it is false. And even then, I would handle it civilly because I do believe in misunderstandings and I am not childish.
I'll tell you what makes a really bad sequel. When you're just trying to rake in money/attention so you just slap together anything and everything that will garner attention. This is a disaster I saw happened with the Terminator series. The last movie that came out so far just completely disregarded the plot, the purpose and focal point of the series to make something that would garner attention. Instead... they got something that was no good.
My best advice for sequels is NEVER reinvent the wheel and that you have to accept that sometimes, you just can't reuse the same characters or actors. How can you expect your audience to be open to change for the right reasons, when you aren't? Plus, you need to have a substantial amount of respect for your audience which means not treating them like they're dumb or like they're just there to give you their money. You're doing THEM the service so give the best of yourself and sometimes that means coming clean and saying "Sorry, folks, but this story is done". Yes it is sad, but it's also the honest thing to do and your fans will appreciate it a lot more than just making a sequel that stinks.
Other than the fact that she's a bit too slender for an elephant (which even then is subjective), I don't see why her reception was so cold. Sometimes, crowds can be tough for no reason. If you ask me, it was just a timing thing because she doesn't seem to have anything wrong with her and she fits right in with the rest of the crows. The only thing I speculate about her is that she has some Indian references which within itself is not a bad thing because if the society is multicultural, characters like her should fit right in.
I think a sequel is good when it has a good balance of an original plotline with (as you said) the characters tackling new challenges, but it also respects its source material rather than contradicting it. Plus, it has to make sense. If the story was open and shut, a sequel has no chance.
Here is my own take on a dinosaur gryphon inspired by the single flightless yet highly fascinating parrot which could be the missing link between dinosaurs and birds. This parrot is known as the kakapo, it is nocturnal, it is kind of endangered and it is found in one part of the world. Plus, unlike most flightless birds, the kakapo's wings actually do serve a purpose and that is helping stay balanced as it walks on uneven terrain. It is a bird worth looking up and saving because we could learn tons from it. And because it just adds beauty to the world.
I call this gryphon the Kakaporus Rex meaning it is half kakapo and half t-rex. It is also known as a k-rex or a "kooky" (pronounced as "cookie"). Despite its size and huge feet, it is quite docile and it makes an amazing guard dog. It also contributes to nature as they act as "gardeners" for forests and jungles in the sense that they eat trees and wood straight up which keeps the habitat from becoming too thick and cluttered. This is also gives room for new trees to grow after the old and dying ones get eaten by a kooky.
Fun extra fact about T-rexes, they actually did have feathers.
More importantly and to the point, the Venom movie switches things up because I like backstories and I like anti-heroes who are interesting. Not simply "bad boys" or "bad girls". I never liked the trope of a person being a jerk and being all cool and liked for it. Eddie Brock is interesting because he makes bad decisions and is no saint, but he tries to be good. He's just literally an addict who can't live without his poison.
I think you should definitely start a schedule and keep it. Plus, make lots and lots of buffer. That's what I do and why I only update twice a week. And just to let you know, I will remain loyal and read no matter what you do.
You know what? This is getting dramatic and I didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings. I just made the picture because it made me happy. That's all. You like new She-Ra and can identify with her? Great. You don't? That's also great. Like I said, my concern is how she's going to be on the inside. Let's see what happens when the show airs.
