I don't think his reputation would be that big an issue, he's got the right kind of politics for the current landscape (Not sure how long that'll last though, apparently Disney is trying to cut back on the woke crowd due to them losing the mouse money).

But Utopiaguy is right in that Dobson's lack of work ethic is his main problem followed by his shocking lack of willingness to improve on his art skills.

His political reputation might not sink him, but remember that's only a tiny part of Dobson's reputation. The bigger part is the weird porn, the bad writing, and the constant tantrums. The tantrums would be the biggest thing, though, you aren't gonna hire some brushmonkey who's a bigger primadonna than the bossman.

That is true, Dobson never seems to want to work his way up, he wants to start from the top, which seems to be a reacurring thing with lolcows.

And maybe i'm just cynical about the industry from all the drama I've heard but I'm not sure the porn thing would be a deal breaker since the more inscrupulous people could use it to emotionally blackmail him and say things like 'Come on Dobson, we took you on despite your history..' to pressure him into doing things he might not want to.

Porn artists can absolutely get "real" jobs if their work is quality enough. In Japan it's literally just accepted that no matter what perversions you draw you can still be a guest artist on multimillion dollar mobile games and no one will bat an eye. And plenty of American studios are fine with it as well...

... if you have the talent.

It's sort of like, if Dobson was actually skilled, then no, the porn might not sink him. But if you were looking at two people with the same degree from the same school and one had drawn teenage girls inflating until they exploded into goo and one hadn't, which would you hire just on that alone?

I would hire the one that smacks Dobson across the face.

With how far he has fallen it would not even suprise me if just the name alone would make people working there go "oh boy that guy"
“Next application is from....Andrew Dobson.”

“Wait, why do I know that name..?”

“Says he also went under a pen name, Tom Pres-“

“HOLY SHIT, that internet blue bear guy is here for an interview?! DAVE! Dave, get in here! That internet weirdo you told me about is here for an interview!”

Reminder that Rebecca Sugar of Steven Universe is a complete degenerate that drew porn of Ed and Edd fucking (a children’s cartoon featuring the characters as minors) and has a successful animation career.

Or until he got Me Too’ed, Chris Savino was behind the Disney show Kick Buttowski and the Nickelodeon show The Loud House and he also drew the porn comic Eddie Puss, a comic about a young boy anthrocat that wants to fuck his mom.

And those are just recent examples.

Yeah, Dobson's Catty N days are tame compared to Sugar's graphic yaoi porn. Nobody would care about his porn here if he wasn't such a hypocrite about it now, except maybe to laugh. It's his attitude and poor skills that'll prevent him from any sort of professional job in the art work. He's far too inconsistent for animation, his expressions are too grotesque and forced for comics, and his coloring skills are shit for any kind of illustrative work. And that's on top of his laziness, negative attitude, and petty meanness.

Rebecca Sugar: bisexual woman in power in media who does lots of representation.
Chris Savino: while male.

I can see how Rebecca avoided getting metooed.

There are people like that whose fetishes have become so extreme that they've effectively neutered themselves for actual real-life sex. If you can't cum without a 60-foot dickgirl shoving you up into a 30-foot horsedick and digesting you into cum to be stored in her equally oversized balls, you just aren't going to find anything in real-life that comes even remotely close to that.
Not with that sort of defeatist attitude you're not.

I think Rebecca Sugar is (((white))) but she’s an agender bisexual married to a black guy so...
Yeah, now talking about her... i remember those comics she draw; Ed, Edd & Eddy is the most popular but i can remember in my /co/ days in 4chan a Ratatouie one & a self-insert in a fancomic Invasor Zim one.
She's married with a black fat guy called Ian, the same who created O.K.K.O (or something like that, i can't remember right) but i have knowledge about him; he worked in Venture Bros before.
More than that... all you're right about her; she's more lucky and comparing to Dobson's case, i'm sure a gay ship yaoi is forgettable rather than inflation fetish.

A couple of doodle comics isn’t exactly on the same level as Dobson’s stuff. Plus he was pretending to be a teenage lesbian as well.
It was more than few doodles, and given that she married a dude, she was also pretending to be a teenage lesbian.

That's the same dude who did RPG World.

Holy shit that's a tale worth revisiting all on its own.
From what I can tell, not really.

So back in the Golden Age of Webcomics there was one main portal for webcomics, Keenspot... at least until everything went off the rails in the late aughts. Keenspot - and like 9/10 of the webcomic creators on there - would probably deserve its own thread, but not many people will talk in any specific terms about the goings on that went down; because real money & careers are involved and I guess one of the family that owns it is a lawyer. Basically its all gay drama and no one really cares anymore, especially not enough to piss off a crazy, bored litigant.

I guess at least won't talk to a randos on the internet, provided they are even still checking their mail, at any rate. Except for Darren Bleuel and I'd rather rawdog a cheese grater than listen to him given a soapbox.

What made Keenspot so lofty was it was an invite-only collective (sort of-kind of like Hiveworks is now) that handled all the advertising and backend for comics, and cut checks to the creators. Getting up on Keenspot was a "Made it" sort of level that got you a living wage... until it all fell apart due to drama and ad revenue dropping. Anyway, IJQ as a highschooler made a webcomic RPG World that got invited into Keenspot fairly early on.

Anyway, Ian didn't seem to have any drama. He drew a popular webcomic that made him bank for being a teen, went to art school, got a job in the industry and stopped updating his comic due to a mixture of "The comic being something he came up with in highschool and he wasn't in highschool anymore" and his day job being drawing shit. I think he was too young and too in-school to have been caught up in most of the Keenspot drama. He seems to have had a good career, despite being sort of aspie.
He went from storyboard artist to co-executive producer on Steven Universe, and I suspect that fucking Rebecca Sugar played absolutely zero part in that.

Anyway, fast forward to 2013 and he came up with O.K. K.O. for Cartoon Network. It was a short that got expanded into a full 3-season series in 2017, not too long after it went public he was fucking Rebecca Sugar. Again, I'm certain pure coincidence. But in that series he ended up doing a quasi-cross over/epilogue for the main RPG world characters

As far as I can tell, that it is. The industry nepotism is even yawn-worthy because the guy has talent.

(aside, While trying to find that shit I discovered there is a fan project to continue RPGWorld. I'll look into it later, looks like its still updating.)

Dobson's wall for breaking into the animation industry are not his politics or the fact he drew fanart porn, its mainly two things:

-His absolute lack of skill in animation and anything art related, this alone makes him non hirable, he is also lazy and could not fill even the most menial position in the pipeline, his portfolio would not get pass any filters, i doubt he could even put togueter a short pilot for a pitch and if he did it would probably end as a meme as that korrasami animation.

-Most showrunner nowadays and "idea guys" come from a samey background and the industry seems very nepotistic at the top, most creators seem to have one or two degrees of separation at most between each other , are around the same age group and come from the same schools. Dobson would never have an in with that crowd or with any crowd, regardless of their politics nobody likes Dobson, even other sjw webcomic artists shun him and laugh at him, Dobson doesn't have any accolades or friends in that bussiness, no one would ever vouch for him, and someone already inside a studio recommending you is a big part of getting jobs nowadays.
